On Monday Morninj: last. March, 20th, Frauk
0'N"eH, a eoldier who killed a &ireant at Camp
lApache ju-vctal mouths aj;ot and who was in jail
i.erc under mi indictment by the Gntud Jury,
nwaitin his lilnl at the next term of the District
court, took advantage of under Shcrifl barues'
nbsence, that uintlemau bring nt the time enoj:
ed in conversation with others ou the front porch,
to slip in quietly lrom the jail, through a door
that communicate with the otllec and take a kix
ebootcr from a pigeon hole at the desk. Having
secured the weapon he appears to have delern
med to make turcuse of it by putting the muzzle
o his right temple, which from the marks of
fcowdcr must have been held there with his left
iiand while he pulled the trigger with his right.
The result was that the ball crashed through bis
fcirain coming out at the back of his head and en
tered the wall.
A Coroner's Jury was called by Coroner Otis
fcnd a verdict rendered to the effect that he died
lrom a pistol shot 11 red by himself, cic.
Theory consisted of Geo. W. Witt, Hudolf
E'iKerl'fniri E. Ganz, Henry Wlunlnghou", Jas.
obson, M. Safoenburg, E. It. Drown, Geo. Ham
jond and Geo. Carr.
Deceased was probably from thirty to thirty-two
pears ol ngc, and of Irish descent, though we
liavc been unable to ascertain the country of his
kativity. A tew days before his death he escaped
from jail hut was overtaken by Sheriff Rower
icar'Curtls' mill and brought hack. He has nct
rd strangely ever since he has been In jal!, and
natty thought he wal feigning Insanity for pur
sue of defence In the trial, but this last act
rould seem to settle the fact that he was Insane.
Tnc New Scuooiuourn that is to he. On
Ilaturday evening Inst, the Board of Trustees for
his District met at the otlice of Superintendent
