Ci;dab FAXii.3, la., Aug. — At "> i
o'clock last evening Nathan Codnor, the j
father of Calessa Coiner, who was ab- i
ducted by the colored brute Gsorga Her- j
sou, as telographed last night, shot her •
abductor. The examination which waR :
being held before Justice Shields had ;
closed as far as the testimony was con- i
earned, and the room cleared previous to j
rendering the justice's • decision. The
crowd passed out, Codner being m the !
rear. Sheriff Ed^engton, accompanied by
the prisoner, went out, and aa they got
into the hall he noticed that Codner stood
there. He walked between him and Her
fsu. Just as they passed, Codner throw
Jjir* arm back of the oflicer and fired. The
muzzle of tho revolver was within a foot
»f lierson'e back. The officer sprang upon J
Conner and wrested tha weapon from him. j
Then he turued to Herson, who exclaimed, j
; "I am killed," hdJ fell upon his face. He
never spoke again. He died in about half
an hour. Codner was arrested, and irf now
in jail, awaiting the result of the coroners
inquest. B?ing interviewed concerning
the shooting he admitted it. and said: "I
don't care a damn. I would just as lief
die, but I wanted satisfaction out of that
u^;ro. ;< Herson was about 31 years of
age, and had for some time borne a bad
reputation. He deserted his wife, a white
woman, at Petersburg, and is said to have
been running a disreputable house under
the guise of a barber shop. No blame
can tie attached to the officers, as they did
nil they could to protect the prisoner, and
Csdner had apparently given np all idea
of taking vengeance into his own hands.
The crime for which Horson was under ar
rest was tho abduction of als year old
girl living in this city from her home for
vile purposes, and it was accomplished
through the aid of her oousin, who is a
sister of her son's reputed wife. She got
her to go to Waterloo and they, together
with hor son, staid over night at a hotel.
With the aid of his female acoomplioe
Herson accomplished the girl's ruin.
ANOTHEB GOOD MAN.
[BpecLal Tt'lograni to the Globe. |
Cleveland, <)., Aug. 19. — Such a sensa
tion as th 9 defalcation of Cashier Kirkland
M. Fitch, of the Second National bank of
Warren, ()., and the subsequent closing of
the bank has not been known in Trumbull
county for many a day. The report at
first Wcis not credited. It could not be,
men said on the street?, Fitch waf> too
in;inly. too honest, and had too much at
stake to commit such a crime. Subse
quent developments prove, however, in
this ca?e a* in that cf many another good
man, that sometimes those in whom the
most confidence ia placed are the first to
desert their principles and friends. Mr.
Fitch, who stands upon his own confession
August 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th, 31st, and September Ist
And a Grand Meet of Minnesota Wheelmen !
a defaulter to the extent of $80,000, is a
native of Trumball county, and grew up
in Warren. He has been for some lime
the support of his parents, and so far as
known led an exemplary life until
May, 1882. when he yielded to the fascina
tions of Wall street speculation and mads
an investment of a few hundred dollars of
his savings in the stock cf a promising
western railroad. His margin? were wiped
oat. He tried again and again. He lost.
Thinking he conld easily replace it. he
drew from the funds of the bank, covering
up his petty thefts by false entries. Again
ho lost and again ha drew from the bank
the money of others. The.-? the thing ran
on until a day or two ago, when one of the
directors of the bank discovered a check
of his for $5,000, given to make the cash
balance. Suspicion was aroused, and |
Bank Examiner Eilip, of Cincinnati, was
sent for. He came, and Cashier Fitch was i
so alarmed that he took to his bed, suffer
ing from insomnia, co a local has
it. When Examiner Ellis went to
his room to see him ho broke completely
clown and confessed all. In the meantime
he wrote a letter to the board of directors,
making a plain statement of the case and
detailing to them how he loot the money.
The news spread like wildiira through the
town, and any number of rumors were
afloat. The bank at once closed its doors,
and Inspector Ellis took formal posses
sion, and will retain it until the affairs
are settled. This morning United States
Marshal Odell, of Cleveland, went to War
ren with a warrant for Fitch's arrest, but
it appeared the victim of insomnia had left
for parts unknown. It was currently
rumored that last night he left town with
his father disguised as a woman, and was
driven to Bristol, taking train for
the oast. It has been made
known to-day that Mr. A. R . Sell6man gave
Fitch a few days ago $:iO,OOO with which to
buy United States' bonds for him. It is
not known now whether Fitch bought them j
or pocketed the money. Later develop
ments are anxiously 'waited for. especially
by Mr. Selleman. The bank which suffer*
from Fitch's perfidy has paid up capital of j
$100,000. It was incorporated only a little
over two years ago, Fitch himself soliciting
most of the stock. The last statement of
the bank, which wat< published June 22,
placed the liabilities to depositors at $211,
--602, and total resources at filS,Bl4. It
■will bo seen that the bank was enjoying a
good business and the confidence of iho
community. Inspector Ellis saya that he
hopes to make a statement of the exact
conditiom of the bank Monday noon. It it
generally thought that the creditors will
receive 100 cents on the dollar within
thirty days, unless some new features at
present unexpected are developed.

MASQCBADING IN MEX*S ATTIBE.
f Special Tclo^ram to the Globe.]
CniCAOo, Aug. 19. — The girl sailor who
persists in wearing men's clothes and call
ing herself Frank Chambers, was locked
up at Armory last night by Detective
Granger. She sported a natty Derby hat,
blue shirt and dark trousers, ani had tho
traditional Jack-tar walk. A young iran
was in her company, and it appoara that
the two had just started out, intending to
have a grand time. Granger met them at
the corner of Fifth avenue asd Randolph
street. Despite the girl's attempt to con
ceal her sex the detective recognized her,
and said, "Frank, you will have to come
with me. You were told to leave town or
wear your proper clothes."' Some months
ago she was fined $60 for masquerading in
men's clothes, and after a few
days' stay at the Bridewell she
wan released, promising to leave
the city. The fine was imposed by Justice
Kaufmann, and as Granger referred to it
the gir! flew into high wrath. '"There aint
law enough ia the country," said she, "to
make me quit wearing these clothe*. I
told old Kauffuian so too when he fined
me. I said I'd wear these pants to his
funeral, and I will if I have to yo 5,000
miles to do it." The tobacco habit haa
got strong hold on Frank. She chews and
spits like an old tar. Her vocabulary, too,
is also plentifully interlarded with ex
pressions characteristic of the seafaring
class, aud in mo»3nts of anger her oaths
are strong enougn to impart a vivid blue
tiuge to the atmosphere. She is a character
in her way. When arrested
before she maintained that cir
cumstances compelled her to don
male attire. She said that early in life
her mother died and the cruelty of her
I father drove her from her home. To her
| mind women had the worst of it all
through life, and failing to secure any
j opening where her sex was usually cm
i ployed she changed her attire and resolved
I to engage in work performed by men.
She is twenty years old and quite pretty
and for the past eight years has worn
masculine garments. Early last spring
she was jailed at Detroit for tweaty-one
days. Soon after she was arrested in the
same place a second time, but on showing
the officers her ticket for Chicago they let
her go. She then gave the name of Aura
Scott and said her parents lived at Elraira.
N. Y. She also admitted she drove street
car in Cincinnati for two years
but h«d mostly followed the lakes. To the
police of Chicago she said her family
name was Lancaster and that her parents
lived at Newark, Ohio. She has
been sailing on the lakes for the past three
jt'iir?, but at present was engaged as cook
on the eteam barge Duluth. "She affects
tho rolling gait of v sailor," sr.id detective
Granger. '"But has the regular Bowery boy
swagger." "but," interrupted Frank "I'll
wearj these tegs all the same. I'll never
change them until I get some good man
for a husband who will keep me in decent
stjle: then I'll ba a decant woman again
but you bet I eaa't be fooled. No dude,

negro, entered the room of one of the
most esteemed and respected young ladies
of the place and attempted to violate her
parson, but her cries and the prompt re
sponse by members of tha family fright
ened the ruffian away. He was arrested
yesterday and was fully identified as the ;
assailant. He was remanded to jail, aud j
owing to the height of popular indigna
tion, an extra guard placed at tho jail to
prevent mob violence. About 2 o'clock at I
night a verdict of death was ordered by f
Judge Lynch, and a mob of twenty-five j
men started for the jail. Two disguised
men approached the oflisers and demanded
the keys or tho negro, but they were re
fused, whereupon the mob suddenly rose }
from their secret places, held
the officers, and while some of the !
party feJled the iron doore with hammerrs, j
Recured the prisoner and left with a rope

OHOKED TO PEATH EEFORB HE WOULD SIGN.
San FuANcrßCo,Aug. 19. — From a descrip
tion given of the three men who resided
o _- —
in the house of Nicholas Skerrett, the real
estate broker, found murdered yesterday
evening, the detectives have succeeded ia
arresting one of the murderers. He proves
to be an ex- convict named Wright Leroy,
formerly a shrewd, well-read attorney of
Oakland, Cal. While residing here he
forged a number of deeds to town lots,
hypothecating them for considerable
money, and being detected he was Feat to
Sanqnilon prison for Beven years. He
was discharged only in May. When the
detectives had made sure of their man he
was at once charged with -. the crime, but
denied everything. On being confronted
with some of his own handwriting showing
him to have been implicated in designs
upon Skerrett' a property, he finally ac
knowledged he had been engaged by two
men, John D. Townsend and William Mil
ler, who claimed to have large mining
interests in Denver, to act as
broker for the purchase of Skerrett's
property. After making the admission,
the prisoner was confined in a solitary cell,
and a few hours later told the chief of po
lice that he had previously lied and wanted
to tell the truth. He thereupon confessed
he was implicated with Townsend and
Miller, and sought to obtain possession of
Skerrett's money, but denied having
anything to do with the murder. A plan
concocted was to profess to purchase
empty houses, and while viewing them,
Townsend and Miller should choke him
1 until he signed checks on Donahue, Kelly
& Co. for the money he had on deposit.
On a day appointed, Skerrett accompanied
the men to the house where the body was
afterwards found. Leroy says he refused
to go with them, and knows nothing about
what took place. He refused to make any
further statement. The chief of detec
tives believe the deed was unintentional,
and that not being able to force Skerrett
to sign the check, the men kept chocking
till death ensued.

JERE BLACK DEAD.
The Distinguished Jurist aud statesman
Passes Away Suddenly Yesterday— His
Yoek, Pa., Aug. 19. — Judge Jeremiah S .
Black died at 10 minutes past 2 o'clock
this morning. Though not unexpected,
hi 3 death was sudden and a chock to the
community. On Saturday morning he
seemed somewhat better, but the improve
ment was too slight to justify the hope of
his recovery. The unfavorable change be
gan about 4 in the afternoon and he gradu
ally grew worse, but remained conscious
almost to tho end and died peacefully.
From the beginning of his illness Judge
Blaok believed ho never would recover and
was perfectly resigned. Mrs. Black, Lieut.
Grover, Chauncey F. Black and wife,
Henry Black, Mr. and Mrs. Hornsby, A.
B. Farquahar and Dr. Meissenhelder were
present. Many telegrams of condolence
have been received. The funeral will take
place on Tuesday at sp. m. The remains
wiil be interred at Prospect Hill ceme
tery, and Dr. Powers, of the Christian
church, Washington, will probably officiate
at the funeral. Shortly before Judge
Black died he said to his wife: "How can
Ifeartocros3 the dark river, when my
father waits for me on the other shore ?"
and added, "Would I were as comfortable
about all I leave behind in this world,"
and then he breathed tha following earn
"Ob, thon most beloved and mercifal
Heavenly Father, from whom I had my be
ing aud in whom I have trusted, if it be
j thy will, grant that my suffering end and
I that I bo called homo to Thee, and oh my
j God bte^s and comfort Thee my Mary."
The immediate cause of his death was
! taxic-mia, produced by the absorption of
retained urinary secretions prior to the
operation of Thursday. Dr. McKennon. of
York, who had spent the day with the pa-
tient, noticed the appearance of unfavor
able Rjmptoms about 4 o'clock in the after
noon. Dr. Meissenhelder, who relieved
Dr. McKennon, also noticed the change for
the worse, and from that hour the increas
ing gravity of his symptoms indicated a
gradual failure of the vital forces. Judge
Black suffered greatly during his illness,
but his last momenta weru without acute
pain, and he passed quietly away, retain
ing consciousness nntil within a few min
utes of his death.
Jeremiah S- Black was born in the
Glades, Somerset county, Pa., June 10,
1810. Admitted to the bar in 1830, he
was, in April 1842, appointed presiding
judge of the judicial district in which he
lived; was in 1851 elected to the bench of
the supreme court, and made chief justice;
was re-elected in 1854, and March 5, 1857,
received from President Buchanan the ap
pointment of attorney general. Appear
ing in behalf of government in a disputed
land claim from California, he achieved a
great success, at once establishing hi 3 rep
utation aa a jurist. He was United States
secretary of state from December 1800 to
i March 1861. He has since continued in
j the practice of his profession in the United
I States courts and has b^en principal coun
i sel in many noted cases. He was an able
, advocate, a fluent writer, and a concise
: and conspicuous defender of Democratic
' principles both upon the platform and
I through the press.
