MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL SATURDAY,
DIED WITHOUT A WORD.
CHAS. N. EKICU DIES AND MAKES
An Inquest Held by Coroner Cole
man Testimony of the
About 1 o'c'ock Voeterday attornnrn
Charles N. Erich "breathed his iaat.
His condition wal desperate, and nil
hope ol the most sanguine was aban
doned ye8'erday .iiiominj?. At neon
bis temperature had fa len to 101), his
rfspiraiion was GO, and his pulse 140.
He had not taken any nourishment to
amount to anything for twelve bout,
and did not speak a word. He died
with bis secret locked in bis bosom,
and, though the doctors were able to
find the fatal bullet, the Coroners
jury conld find no witnece to the mid
Dr. W. B. Rogers performed the
operation ol trephining. He made an
lnciaon in tne deck oi tue hkuii wan
such nceniug precision that the bullet
wss touched at once ny ine instru
ment. It had struck the back of the
skull, become lUttened about half,
and was firmly imbedded in the brain.
At 4 o'clock Coroner J, M. Coleman
was summoned to hold an inquest and
impaneled a jury of seven men, as
follows: Jfsse T. Brown, D. H. llav-
den, L. P. Jehl, A. M. Stoddard, J. II.
Fisher. K. A. Udlum ana M. is. tinyes.
The inqueBt was held in tbe bedroom,
where ine ttouy oi tne suiciae lay
upon the bed upon which he whs
found with a bullet hole In his fore
head last Sunday morning. The
spectacle wai a sad one, and all who
were present were visibly afl'tcjed by
it. N?ven witnesses wera examined
Drs. Ersk ine. Nail and Rogers, Hen'
nintrs, Mra. Rosa Cox, Flora Williams
snd Richard Custer. The two oldnst
boys of the dead man were also exam
ined. Mrs. Erich was not present.
DR. NALI.'B TESTIMONY.
Dr. Nail said he was sent for eatly iq
tbe morning. He battened to tbe
house and found Erich laying on his
back, with his right liana paralyzed,
the bed saturated with blood and
bole in the center cf his forehead. Ha
continually raised his left hand, s rok
ine his forehead with i'. He spoke to
Erich, who was in a semi-cooscioui
condition, and he opened his eyes and
sroaned. Dr. riall also discovered
that he had vomited a quantity of
milk, grapes and smear case over the
riorht hand ide of the bed on the floor.
There were several drops of
blood in it, showing that he
had leaned over and vomited
after he had been shot. Just under
the edge of the bed lay a Smith &
AVesson mslol, with one barrel empty.
His theory was that sftr Erich shot
himself he became sick at the stomach
and reached over to voini, and that
in bis stiufigles the pistol dropped off
on the flior. The bolster, which had
two powder boms on the further end,
was pulled over and doubled around
the pistol to multie tne sound.
MRS. ROSS, cox,
who lives diagonally acres the street,
shniit ninntv ffit Hiv. waa sitting? nn
with a sick husband, heard a pistol fire
about 3 o clock and ran to tne window,
bhe imagined that the report was
down the street. She rama'ned at the
window some time, but evei jthiufc re
mained calm and quiet.
the colored cook, testified that she
lives in South Memphis, and aot to
the house about 5 o'clock Sunday
morning. Ween sue entered ine
dining room she said Mrs. Erich was.
very much exci'ed and cjnfused;.
Mrs. Erich, who was undresed, said
ti her tbat she thought Mr. Erich was
poisoned. It was instantly discovered,
however, tbat he bad teen shot, and
Mrs. Erich immediately sent her for
colored, who live3 in the neighbor
hood, arrived on the scene shortly
after the shooting but was able to
throw no light on tbe eflnir.
Drs. Erakiue, Henning nud Rsgets,
who arrived aftsr Dr. Nail, could add
nothing to his testimony.
ebich'b second eon
was not put under the rule, but was
examined closely by thejory. He told
a plain, straight story. The members
of the family, he i eid, were not in the
habit ol going to bed at the came time
They all flept in the same room, but
retired when they fe't dispo'ed. Ha
slept in one bed with ld3 father, his
two brothers and mother sleeping In
another bad ch so by. Saturday night
hia father came home about 9 or 10
o'clock, and soon afterward went to
bed. His mo'ber and brothers
retired soon a'ter, and in about
half an hour he, who wes last to retire,
went tJ bfd with bis father. A few
minutes afterward his father got out
of bed and put out the lights, leaving
the room in fottl darknees. The pietoi
was usually kept in the (lining roam,
but whitlier he went in there and gat
it be did not know. After the lislits
were put out he remembered nothing
nothing more until far in the night,
when he was awakened by a sound
which sounded like the report of a toy
cannon. The windows, which were
protected by wire icreeni, wore
open and he imagined the
noise csme from the outside.
Directly afterward he beard bis father
vomiting and groaning, but as tbat was
not unutinl be paid no attention to it
and dropped off to sleep aga'n. He
wis the li s' to get ur in the mornin?,
noticed that his father was wildly
throwing one i rin about, and that his
face was hi ody, and gave the fllirin.
Tne eldest boy heaid"iit Ang, and ti e
little follow, who is a" mere infant, was
as stattd, was not prceal. Hail hn
bten a witness it is likely she would
have te5?! tied about as followe: For
some time p ut she has suspected
Erich of infidelity ot the biackts:
typi, her suspicions amounting to crn
vittion. Tuey oftf-n had violent
quarrels hut be did not reform, khe
tried to get proof but f i'ed. A
short time since the went to
Judge Morgar, and telling him
that her life with Erich was
a burden asked him to procure her a
divorce, bhe had nothing to give as
reasons expt suspicions. Judge Mor
gan told her he could not proceed
without proofs, and she employed De
tective Prtde to obtain it for her.
He traced Erich to the house of Mae.
Adeline Clark, and also discovered
tbat he was in the habit of spending
hours at a time with a vile, greasy
wench who lives in the came locality.
He accordingly made a icpcrt,
it is stated, and Saturday morn
ing last, armed with ihU proof,
Mrs. Erich went to Judge Morgan's
office, and the bill was drawn up.
That night, when her husband came
home, she told him what she had
done. Bhe declered that she was in
full possession of the proof that he
bad been criminally intima'e with
cegro women; told him that abe in
tended It obtain a divorce at
once, and that sne wouiu never
spend another night under hia
roof, lie tnrew up n nance
confeseed his guilt and implored
her forgiveness. He declared tha' he
realised the error of his way and tbat
if she would forgive him the should
tever bave causs to complain again.
He could ni t bear the idea of being
d szraced. She declined to listen to
bim and reiterated her reaolve to ob
tain a divorce at once. He went to
bed and the next morning in the g ay
light of dawn was found lying upon
hia back with a bullet hole in hi head.
The jury returned a verdict of sui
Extraordinary fasrsof sinrvlvnl of
To the Editors of the Appeal:
The interest exci'ed by Mr. Erich'a
case ii tne prcgnous oi gunenoi
wounda of the brain," hes prompted
me to cive mv exner:enc9 witti two
C'ses which fell under my obsatvation
sjme ten or twelve years ago.
Tha first was thatol a coloral DjV,
JsVkson Warr, about 12 years of age,
who received a charge oi iNo.dstiot nred
from a shotirun. entering iu-t in front
of the left ear and Pissing obliquely
inward snl npwi d . and "(sraping
about the ceuter oi me top oi tne
head. Patient when sen by me was
in a deep Btupor, the brain eubntHnce
ooz:ng freely from the won ad. He re
inaintd in this condition about thirty
six hours, after which timi conscious
ness gradually returned and he mudo
a gocd recovery and ii now working
on one of Dr. A. V. Warr's fims near
Rosiville, Tenn. .
The second and mora remarkable
case was a negro man, John Tavlor.
This man received a pistol shot liom
a "Southern derringer," laree caliber.
The ball entsred aoout half np inch
above the left eyebrow, dii ictljt ovji
the eye and pased backward, aid, as
1 suppose, must have found a lodg
ment in the back part of the skull.
When seen the patient was cnnvitose,
bra'n substance escaping freely from
wound, as much ae a tabhspooaful
having been lost. A silver catheter, of
ita own weight, passed four and a half
inches di'ectly back into tho brain.
The patient remained in this condi
tion about firty-eight houre, after
which he gradually returned tJ con
sciousness and made a good reeowry,
but lost the left eye. Ttiis pa ieut was
under my observation for two years
after rdceiving the wound, and per
formed the labor of a farm hand with
out any inconvenience.
