Clinrecil With KoblMiy from -the
J'i:TERBBUIia, VA., February 3.—(Spe
cial.)—The case of the Commonwealth vs.
A. C. Gillisan, who is charged with the
Wiling; of C. B. Turner, of Isle of ..Wight
county, on the 27th of December last, Avas
sent on to the February term of the court
of that county for trial by the magistrate
before whom he was taken for examina-'
tion, after waiving a hearing. The Coun
ty Court of- Isle of Wight will meet on
Monday, the uth instant. In the event
that the -trial is to take place at this
term, Gililgan, who has been confined in
the jail of "this city since, his surrender,
will be taken down to the county court
house to-morrow (Sunday) night by Sheriff
R. A. Edwards. It is by no means cer
tain, however, that the trial • will take
place at this term. There are other crim
inal cases on "the court's docket, one or
more of them involving the charge of
murder, in which Indictments have been
found, and which will have priority for
trial, and as no grand jury has as yet
been summoned for the term, it is prob
able that Gillisan's case will not be ready
for trial, or even called. If, however, the
case is to coma up, Sheriff Edwards will
be here to-morrow night for his prisoner.
Gilligan has made an exceptionally good
Prisoner while here, and has behaved
himself in the best possible manner.
A portion of the large green-house be
longing to Mr. W. S. -Young, on Halifax
street, was damaged by lire this morning
about 4 o'clock. The fire caught from one
of the heating flues, and was discovered
by a citizen, who was passing by at the
time, and who gave the alarm. The house
was considerably damaged by fire, ami
the plants, mostly palms, injured by
water and smoke. Mr. Young-" estimates
his loss at KKO or $300.

There are on deposit in the Clerk's of
fice in this city for safe-keeping a num
ber of wills, left there to be probated on
the death of the testators. Some of these
wills have been there for many years —
one of them as long- ago as ISSS. The
Probability is that all, or nearly all, of
the testators are dead, mid that there is
considerable property awaiting claimants.
However, as the Clerk has never been
notified of the death of any of the testa
tors, the wills cannot be probated.
The residence of Mr. Sidney Truylor,

Some one-Mrs. Blount I tliink-was

Jane Franklin was appealing to kings and

causes, and when ..Mr. Goebel finally'

his brother was dead. . .
: : "movement, for; monument.
Among partisans of both sides deep
grief is manifested, and 'already a move
ment has : been, started to erect a fitting
monument to Mr. Goebel's memory, on
the spot in the State House grounds
v/here-he was shot. . '
No. arrangements, have as yet .been
made for the funeral. Plunged in grief,
and in the death chamber of their bro
ther, Arthur. and Justus Goebel and Mrs.
Braunaker have given out no intimation,
of their wishes, and probably no definite
arrangements will be-ma<le until to-mor
row. . ;- . "
It is understood that a request will be
made, on behalf of the citizens of Frank
fort, that Mr. Goebel's last resting-place
be in the cemetery here, where lie buried
Daniel Boone and Vice-President Andrew
"NOT IN" VIOLENCE TO GOD'S
WORD. 1 '
Early, to-day, at Mr. Goobel's request,
former Congressman Hendricks was call
ed, and Mr. Goebel asked for some of hfe
legal advisers, :wlth' whom lie wished to
confer. Later, at Mr. Goebel's request,
Chaplain Wallace, of the Kentucky peni
tentiary, an intimate friend, was sent
for,; and. .the two had a short conversa
tion! "Lew," said Mr. Goebel, "I wish to
announce to the world that I do not hold
myself in open violence to the Word ot
The hypodermic injections afforded Mr.
Goebel some temporary relief, but the
sufferer, for the first time in his long,
weary struggle for life, had apparently
lost his indomitable courage.
'.'Doctor," said he, feebly, to Dr. Mc-
Cormick, who stood at his bedside, "I am
afraid now that I am not going to get
■ ,I;t. McCorniick endeavored to cheer ths
fast-failing man, but the latter soon re-
Ic-psed into a condition of semi-conscious
I'IELDS TO INEVITABLE.
: - About 1 o'clock he roused himself again,
and calling Dr. McCormick to ■■ his -bed
side, said: "Doctor, am I going to get
well? I. want to know the truth, for I
have several things to attend to."
''Mr.'. Goebel, you have but a few hours
to Jive," replied Dr. McCormick.
• Mr. Goebel was silent Tor a moment,
•.iie'iv calling his brother, Arthur Goebol.
tj his side, he asked that the physicians
and nurses retire. Then, for -20 minutes,
iho rtying man was left wilh his brother
arid I.is sister, Mrs. Braunaker.
-Late this afternoon, to the weary
watchers at the bedside, it was apparent
thiit'-fthe end was not far off, and Rev.
Dr. Taliaferro, of the Methodist church
of Frankfort, was sent for. He came
at once. Softly entering 1 the death
cliarriber, he crossed over to where Mr.
Goebel lay gasping- for breath, and kneel
ing, ai the side of the bed, prayed earn
e.-tly. With tears streaming down their
laces, Mrs. Braunaker and Arthur Goubel
knelt at the bedside, also.
Then Mr. Talia'ferro arose, and opening
his Bible, read a few selected verses
I'rrm the Epistles of St. James. As the
words .of the apostle were read by the
divine, sthe dying- and apparently uncon
scious man stirred slightly. - Quickly
leaning over his brother, Arthur Goebel
s.-iid: "Will, Dr. Taliaferro is here." No.
response came from the dying- man, but
as Arthur Goebel leaned over him,-look
ir.£ anxiously for some sign of recogni
tion, a. look of intelligence came into the
half-closed eyes, and it was apparent that
Mr. Goebel understood what was said to
SERVICES IN HOTEL.
_ Shortly after this Dr. Taliaferro left
the room, and descending the stairs, en
tered the ladies' reception-room, where,
at the request of several ladies, the
Wives ;: of ■ legislators, he held brief ser
vices. Then, the divine again went to
Mr Goebel's bedside, and about 5 minutes
afterwards took his departure.
Shortly after 4, o'clock the dying man
was again "given oxygen, and again a
slight rally resulted, but it was only tem
porary. His respiration gradually" grew
more laborious, and rose to 53, while his
pulse 'dropped to liO. At (j o'clock. Dr.
Hume left the bedside, and "reported to
the anxious watchers at the hotel that
death was. a matter of but a few mo
ments' time. Tlie oxygen treatment was
used constantly ia a desperate effort to
keep Mr. Goebel nlive until Justus Goe
bel arrived, but no effort was made to
arouse the. unconscious man.
As Dr. Hume departed from the room
the amicted ;bfother and sister turned to
Dr. McCormick and' requested that they
bo left entirely alone with their brother,
who was' fast sinking, and to both physi
cians apparently in articulo mortis. The
physicians silently withdrew, and closed
the doors of the room, leaving behind
them the grief-stricken brother and sister.
Silently, they knelt at the bedside, their
eyes fastened upon the half-open eyelids
of the unconscious man. He gave no sign
of further recognition, and yet he was
not absolutely unconscious. Scarcely
breathing themselves, the brother and
sister bent over the death-bed, listening
to the short, sharp gasps of death, and
praying that the life might be spared
until their brother, Justus, should ar
rive. Their prayers were in vain.
Even as they watched the pulsations
became slower and slower, gradually, but
steadily, growing weaker and weaker,
and with a slight quiver of the eyelids,
one breath, deeper than the rest, a pause,
a gasp, the life that had been battling'
so valiantly against the; assassin's bullet
since last Tuesday morning flickered out.
Death has claimed its victim, and the
brother 'and sister, bowed by sorrow,
whose pangs v,-ere intensified by the
knowledge that a few miles away, hurry
ing to them, was their brother, Justus,
who would arrive "too late, sat down
upon the death-bed alone with their dead
..ARRIVAL OF JUSTUS., -
Not a sign from the room, to apprise
the anxious watchers m the hotel cor
ridor that Mr. Goebel had passed away.
The stricken brother and sister wera left
alone, undisturbed, while the two phy
sicians outside the door anxiously - look
ed at their watches as the minutes flew
by, fearing' the truth, yet wondering at
the long silence. Finally, at 7 P. ' M.,
the train bearing Justus Goebel cams in.
At the" station to meet him were Urey
Woodson, Samuel Shackelford, clerk of
the. Court of Appeals, and Mayor Rhinoch.
of Covington.; They met Mr.. Goebel at
the car steps. /.'ls he dead? Tell me; !s
he dead?" were .the first words ha ut
"He is not dead," was the assurance
given him by, the. friends, who had>rio
inkling of the truth.

The party entered a carriage, and ; In
five minutes— at 7:os— arrived: at,':tha Capi
