GHASTLY SCESE IN A LODES
C. 5. Erich Found by His Wife With
a Ballet Hole la Ills
The neighborhood of the Christian
Church, on Linden xtreet, one of the
quietest and most retired in the city,
wis the scene la-.t Saturday night of a
blcody tragedy as dark as the shade
which covers it after the snn eces
down. G teat trees, thick with foliHge,
and huddled close together, make a
perpetual shade even at midday in
that neighborhood, and at night the
Blattered lamps shed their feeble
light but a few feet away.
Through all the long hours of the
night quiet reigned, but with sunrise
came the discovery of the bloody and
almost lifeless body of Mr. Charles N.
Jbncb, npou a bed in a room at No. till.
The neighbors were arouned by a
cry of distress, and, lusuing in, found
inm lying npon bis back at full length,
a bullet bole in his head, his eyeballs
bulging from thoir sockets, bis face
stained with blood, a pistol with an
empty chamber lying upon the floor
by the bedHide, and tne sheet ami car
pet bespattered with vomit. The
pectacle was enough to sicken the
stoutest of those who looked in upon
it, anu its norror wis increased by tne
fact that the deed and it) came were
shiouded in myttery. The wifo
of the apparently dying man
was unable to throw any light npon
She stated that Mr. Erich came
home about 9 o'clock, and a little after
her three boys, the oldest about 13
yeara cf age, who bad been out at play,
came in, one of them going to ted with
bis father, the other two with her.
There were two beds in the loom.
When she awoke, early in the morn
ing, she noticed something peculiar
about the breathing of her husband,
and getting out of bad she went over
to him. finding him with a bullet hole
in his forehead. Mrs. Erich appeared
to be greatly overcome with grief, and
all day Sunday and yesterday seemed to
be upon the verge of losing her reason.
She was entirely incapable of aiding
in the case of her husband, who was
constantly attended by Drs. Rogers,
E-ekineand Henning. They gave no
hone of his recovery. A part of the
bullet, which pierced the brain, was
eztractedt but a part remains. Late
last evening dark gray matter was
oozing from the orillce.which is almost
in the center ol the forehead.
Mrs. Erich asserts that she heard no
unusual noise during the night, but
the boy, who slept with bis father,
thinks he heard a shot, but the sound
was not great enough to arouse him
thoroughly. The police, who visited
the scene ea-ly Sunday morning,
iound a pillow which they think, on
account of the powder stains, was
used to mnflle the sound. The weapon
was an old style, rusty, 32 calibre,
Smith & Wesson.
Erich, who has resided here about
twenty-five years, is one of the best
known dealers in queensware in the
city. He came to Memphis from Ger
many without a dollar, served his
time aa a compositor in the
Appeal office, lived frugally and
saved a little money. He was
afterward employed in VV. N. Hunt's
queensware house, and during toe
war purchased his stock with
money left him by an ancle who died
in Holland, and continued tne
business in his own name. He thrived,
and unless he has squandered more
money than his acquaintances believe
he bus he should have a handsome sum
laid by. His wife, whom he married
In Germany, comes ot a good lamiiy,
and enjoys the confidence and esteem
of her neighbors. When she arrived
at Memphis a bride, her husband
took up quarters with her at the Pea-
body, and tnougn sbe was uoaoie to
sueak a word oi English she managed
to make plenty of friends by her nat
ural graces and her engaging manners.
.trie a grew insanely jealous, and in less
than a month beat her shamefully,
becoming bo outrageously cruel that
he was threatened with punishment
by the other guestf, and finally or
dered out oy the proprietor, mere
were months at a time when they
seemed to be on the most affectionate
termb, and when this was the case
they ware frequently seen on summer
Sundays' promenading with, the chil
dren in the woods near the city. And
then for a long period he would lapse
into cruelty, his ill treatment of his
wife 1 elnn the eosaio of the neighbor
hood. She was modest in her de
meanor, though she dressed well and
scent several hours a day driving
about in her phaeton. Her fatber
died recently and left her a consider
able sum. Whether with truth or not
it cannot be said, but for a long time
past ex mmon rumor connected Erich's
name with that of the famous Adeline
Yates, better known as Mme. Clarke,
from the fact that she was the
mifitreu of the late F. H. Clarke, the
builder of the marble block. She has
for many years been a conspicuous
figure on the streets, appearing
on the most crowded thoroughfares
with hut masque like face powdered
and painted, her figure clothed In silks
and satins and her person blazing with
jewels. It is reported that Erich visit
ed her raturday, but she was at the
time en ertaining another one of her
admirers and refused him admittance,
whereupon he drank more wine than
was good -for him and went home and
took bis li'e. She denies this state
ment iphatically. substantiating it
by refer nee to President Haddon.who
had he' arrested at Mrs. Erihc's re
quest rbout a year ago, sifted the
whole -natter, found nothing to feed
Mra. Er ch's jealousy and discharged
her. ;n says that Erich need to
visit h ir Bister Louisa about three
years a. o, but since her death she has
not see: i him. It is known that Mrs,
Erich v as in the habit of driving by
the hoi se of the negress nearly every
dav. and that on Saturday last she
went to a lawyer to prepare a bill for
At II e Wounded Hase'a Bedalde.
At 1 ' o'clock last niglit an Appeal
reporter caned at Uie residence oi jur,
Erich, No. 6J Linden street, and was
admitted to the bed chamber where
the shotting occurred and where the
unfortt late man lay flat upon his
back in a dead etnpor, breathing heavi
ly through his half-opened mouth and
nostrils and emitting a rattling, gut
tural sound. Around his bed
side stood a delegation of brother
Masons, Capt J. F. Randall, Secretary
ThomDeon. of the Mechanics and
Builders' Exchange and Mr. M. Picard
of Vance street. These gentlemen
were delegated by the Masonic Lodge
of which Mr. Erich is a member, to
sit with him and admineter to his
wants. Dr. Erskine sat at the head of
the bed with a glass of water and
teasnoon endeavoring to force a few
drops down the throat of the uncon
acinus: man. It was with Great diffi
culty and only by manipulating the
throat from the outside that the physi
cian succeeded in urging a few scant
drops down, as the patient was aos;
lately unable to swallow
liiubi and left side are pi
limbs and left side are paralyzed and
the only sign of life about him is the
heavirg ef his chest and the peculiar
ra'tling noiee from his throat above
described. The room in which he liea
and where the dreadful ahot was fired,
is on the first door of the building,
about three fet-t above the level of the
ground. It is the rear room, with rnn
winilnw opening upon the eurt and
aaoth-r tioon the south. The ronm is
very small acd the two beds that are
placed theie amidst fill up the avaii-

the wounded man lay is rear the es:
window, witn its r.eau t the eagt.
Tne lifd next to it, and separ.ted from
it by a space c f ten inches, is aV vlaccd
with its head to Hie east and is tte
oneocupied by Mrs. Erich and the
children when the snot was bred.
Both beds are very low, the one us
ually occupied by Mr. Erich being
only about 18 inches from the tlcor.
while the adjoining bed is about 10
inches higher. A blue tapestried
screen stood in the aisle between the
two beds. The wound from which
the patint suffers is a very ngly one,
the ball having entered the very can
ter of the forehead, near the edge of
the scalp, penetrating the frontal
bone, and ranging leftward lodged
in the brain, Beyond extracting a
portion of the ball, weighing about
eighteen grains, no effort has been
successful to remove the leaden mis-
Bile. The ball is etui In the brain, and
likely ti remain there until death ter
minates the unfortunate mini's life.
When the reporter left the patient
last night his cond'tion indicated no
material change from what it has been
since the first examination. His tem
po) ature was 102, and his physician
was unable to say how long lie might
linger. It was not even certain whether
he would live through the nlnht, but
there were no ceitain symptoms of

A Qpsseral Melee.
A same of base ball at Rataigh last
Sunday wound up with a general
fight, which may prove fatal to at
least one of the participants. It ap
pears that a young man named Gay,
who lives in the city, went out to
Raldiirh with a party of his friends
Sunday, and was standing looking on
at a game of ball being played between
tome of his party and a Raleigh nine,
when be was ordered, in a rather in
sulting tone, to get out of the way.
He declined, and drew his knife;
several boys crowded around h'm
but did not attack him. He went off
and returned with John A.Taylor and
Charles Hodges, and made a descent
on the crowd. Taylor stabbed John
Dolan in the back, the blade pene
trating to the hollow. He also cut
TomDolau; one or two others were
slightly wounded in the melee. Taylor
sprang on bis horse immediately after
doing the cutting, aud escaped, lorn
Maury drew a pistol and snapped it at
Gay, and was afterward arrested and
fined $25. John Dolan resides with
bis father on Robeson street, this city-
He is badly hurt, and Dr. Duncan,
who was immediately called, thinks
bis recovery doubtful.
Far Black Brute at Mldnlatst
Along the Bayou Banks,
About 12 o'clock Sunday night a
party of excursionists who were re
turning home, when pawing along
Pod ar atreet near tne market nouse.
heard a woman scream and saw a big
buck darky jump out of the door of
one of the shanties along the bank of
the bayou. A little old gray
haired man was observed to
spring from a pallet near the
door and.seizlng a stick, dash away in
Jtursuit. The crowd joinod in, but the
ugitive had too good a start to be
overtaken, it srmeared tbat the au
thor of the scream was the wife of
the man who had been the first to
spring up and give chase. The room
waa too warm for him and he went
outside to sleep. His wifo remained
within and waa awakened by a black
about her couch. She cried aloud and
sprang from her bed and fled.

The w yera In the I.eail.
In 18S5 the Dwyer stable won $87,-
000, which was an increase of $2-1,000
over the preceding year. These are
amounts In round flgnrea. This year
it has already won, up to tlato.f 114,070.
Deducting the stable forfeits nod those
uncolleotalilo would reduco tho figure
below $100,000. Only nine of the
horses which they have started failed
to earn brackets. The chiel bread
winners are InHpector B. Tromont and
Mita Woodfoid. in the order named.
Tremont has won at every asking, and
now has eleven races to his credit.
His engagements are numerous, and
there is a possibility that he will
eclipse the record ot The Bard In Eng
land last season. The Bard started six
teen times and waa not beaten. In many
of bis engagements Tremont will be
required to concede weight; in some
he will be called upon to take up
penalties. The stable, however, is
rstong in two year old timber; so it is
ot probable tbat Tromont will take
up tbo penalties If others can be sent
out and maintain its prestige. The
Mofsrs. Dwyer aro indisputably thu
best managers of the turf, and they
know lust where and when to place
their horses, young and old, to advan
tage. They have made no mistake so
far.and there is no likelihood they will
make any with Tremont. llonorahlo
in all their doalings, these plucky
American sportsmen are richly de
serving of the fame and substantial
success they have achieved.
Fatal Aerltlentln luaBlver Monday
About 10 o'clock Sunday morning C.
O. Metz, a shoemaker, and two of his
employes, J. S. Storch and C. Birdsiel,
were returning from a skill" ride over
the river, nvhen the bottom
struck a rope attached to a
barge near the foot of Bealo street.
The skiff was everturned snd its oc
cupants thrown out. They managed
to catch bold of the rope but the cur
rent was so strong that their bold was
loosened. Meti was swept under the
barge and came -out on the
other side. Birdsiel waa drowned
and Storch managed to escape.
It is reported that a small ,dog, wit
nessing the distress of the three men.
swam out to them, reaching Birds el I
just as be was going down. Birdsell
grasped tho noble little animal, and
they both went down to a watery

to hang, it became necessary to raise
money to defend his brother in a time
