One, that of Archie Brown, son and private secretary of Ken tucky's ahief magistrate, the other that of Mrs. Fulton Gordon, promi nent bw-mse of her remarkable beauty and excellent family connection. The story ie a sad one, and has caua ed one of the greatest sensations this oity or state has erer been called 00 to chronicle. Tbe following telefrrira wai tuttu 1 in Mr. Brown's pocket and is no doubt a direot cause of tbe double murder: "Louisville, Ky , April 28. To Ar chie D. Brown, Governor's private secretary, Frankfort, Ky. D.in't writ anymore. Come Tuesday. Meet uio at 3k (Siguol.l P. M.O." Upon receipt of tbe above telegram Mr. Brown came to Louisville and pro ceeded to the appoiuted placo which is an evil resort at 1025 Madison street, whore at l'A:' today, the Irag. edy occared. At nsoa Brown, with Gordon's wife knocked at the front door of Luoy B. Smith's Mansiou street house.

Gordon left the bouio immeliately and a few minutes later ftvowu' cor pao was found iu the upstairs room. Policemen Reilty and Lapnrllo roebed down Wtdnut Street aud saw a man running for a bugxy tied to a post at the corner of West alrset. "Tbe man was bloody," said O fEeer Roilly,"and I immediately jumped at tbe conclusion that be wai the mur derer. I ran and grabbed him just aa ha was in the aot of jumping into the buggy. He had already untied the horse when I arrived." "Gordon, for it was he, said to mo then: I shot both of them. I oaoght tbem ia the aot. They are both dead. I shot, too.

Everything points to tbe final disposition of the Frederick Douglass estate without fur tbar oaatest ia tbe courts. Next to this fast tbe most gratifying feature connected with the business hi that its adjustment and settlement will be wholly in the banJ of colored men. The bond of $60,000 required by the oourt of tbe administrator, M re. Helen DosgUss, tho .widow, and lir. Lewis H. Douglass, was duly and promptly mvde by tbe Capital Savinga Bank of this oity. The funds from tha aetata will, therefore, be handled exelqeively by this institution iu the natsrsl order of thing 1 and io accord aooe with business customs. This bank is so well know that it is almost aselese to'say taat it ia owned and controlled by colored men end that all of it ofiiosrs are colored Americana. It muit not be imagined for a mom ent that tbe great trust companies of Washington let this business go by witboat making efforts to get it. They were oat looking for it from atari to finish, bet Mr; Lewis Douglass baa too aauafc of hie fatbere spirit of eoofl deaca hi tbe business integrity of col orad ases aot to patronise tbsir own fceeitatioaa whan bis support amoa oatviaff asctfsttsa mere talk. Ia tikiig tbie etap be bed tie beefy O. T., SATURDAY conenrance of his co-administrator. Not less encouraging than this is the fact that of the six lawyers esaployed in the brief contest over Mr. Doug lass' estate in (be probate conrt three were colored men: This in a greater proportion than ia generally found in tbe legal oanse where a considerable sum of money and important rights are involved. Mr. W. H. Hart looked altar tho interests of Mrs. Doaglaas, Mr. E. M. Hewlett that of his uep bews, the children of Frederick Doug lass, Jr., while Mr. Lewis Douglass unh Mr. Cbaa. Douglass wero repre Ranted in part by Mr. Thoe. B. War rick. All of these are capable men nnd costly oontest and one in which the lawyers would have to be well paid1 Indeed tbe indicatiohs aro that there will bo no further friotion in the set tlemont of Mr. Douglass estate. Another sensation was created tbie morning when tbe foneral of Miss Daisy M. Roe wns stopped in the inidte of tbo ceremonies and the body was tiiltou to Justice Adam.a court to be examined for abortion. The funeral services wero going on at tbe houso of Mrs. Listen, 00 the corner of First and Noblo, tbiemorn iug at 10 o'clock, when Officer Bruoe came on tbe scene. Rav. Parker, of tho west side, was preaching the fu neral sermon. The officer waited long enough to let him oonsign the soul of tbe bountiful girl to heaven before demanding the body. Tbe girl had died yesterday morning, sud denly, having been really ill bat about twenty-four hours. It bad been given out that she died of heart disease. Friends knew better aad preferred charges of abortion against Dr. Farrington. Oo this the county attorney ordered Justice Adams to take charge of tbe body. Tbe body was takan before tbe eourt, and tbe following jury brought in a verdict that the girl died of an attempt to commit abortion: A. G. Jones. J. W. R ly, Ed T; Buckley. J- W. Hillyer, W. M. Ritter, Z O. Silla. Dr. Farrington bad attended the girl's sfokness and waa naturally charged with the crime of committing tbe abortion. He was bound over io sum of 110,000, W- H. Gray and J H. Davis going his bond. The doctcr says when tbe time cornea he ean prove himself clear. Doctors Hiatt, Uhas, Smith M. Vandervoort and A: Blesb mado tbe examination of tbe body and pronounced the girl four months enciento. Tbe deoeaacd waa a beautiful girl of nineteen years, wboae mother lives west of the oity. She has a sister, Ollie, working in tbo city and brother, Charley, who is night man at tbe Pabet ice plant. Botb testified to the girl having been io a family waj. She wa3 a good girl and ie said to bare boeo tripped up1, by those who pretended to know. A. preachor ie said to be at the bottom of the trouble: but nothing certain oould be fouud out about the matter, It is a std affair, botb for the living and the dead GIRL'S SAD DEATH- An Arroat in tho J.lidts of Funeral Corremouios.
