A Native of Madison and Highly 'Respect etl There A Self-made Man of Great Business Ability Had Intended to Pre ' sent a Soldiers' Monument to the Town of Madison. The death of Colonel Vincent M Wilcox, a native of Madison, where he was born and raised, occurred at his home in New York yesterday. The news was received in Madison yester day afternoon. Colonel Wilcox while a young man taught school for a time in JMadison and afterwards kept a country grocery store there. He later moved to Pennsylvania, where he lived at the time of the war. He enlisted in a Penn sylvania regiment and rose to the rank of colonel before the close of the war. He afterwards moved to New York city and became the head of the firm of E. & H. T. Anthony, dealers in photo graphic supplies. He had accumulated quite a fortune. He was thrice mar ried, his first wife being Miss Webb of Madison and his second wife Miss Dowd of the same town. He leaves two sons, one by his first wife.Dr. Eeynolds Webb Wilcos, who is a very successful physi cian in New York, and the other a young lad by his third wife. Some months ago Colonel Wilcox became in terested in the discussion then going on in Madison regarding the erection of a soldiers' memorial of some sort in the town. Two sorts of memorials were proposed, one a memorial hall and the other a monument. Colonel Wilcox ex pressed a decided preference for a mon ument to the town. It is understood that work in preparing the monument is now under way and it is thought that the widow, who survives him, will see that his wishes in this respect are carried out. The monument will be placed in Madison cemetery. Colonel Wilcox was abDUt seventy years of ago and was a self-made man of much en ergy and business activity. He mani fested much sagacity in all his business enterprises. The interment will prob ably be in the Madison cemetery, , MAY BE A MURDER CASE ADUJtltAX H'O.U.l.V FOVNB DUD 1JV II Kit II OM K, Discovered by a Vhysiolnn Very Sus- lilvlous Circumstances The "Woman's Son Placed Under Arrest. Durham, May 10. Mrs. Ellen Mur- phy was found dead in 'her home, sit uated two doors from the Episcopal church, at 3 o'clock this morning un der circumstances that point strongly towards murder. The discovery was made by Dr. Mathewson, who was sum moned, as he thought, to attend a sick person. Mrs. Murphy owned the house in which she lived and occupied one- half of it. The other half was occupied by her son Cornelius together with his wife. He has been placed under sur veillance by the authorities. The son says that at 2 o'clock this morning he was aroused and told that his mother was ill and that she needed a doctor. He says that she was alive at that time. Dr. Mathewson, who was the physician called, says that it was 3 o'clock when Cornelius Murphy came to his house and that he answered the call immediately. She was lying on a lounge in a squalid room and about five feet from her on the floor was a pool of blood. There were three con tusions on the head and one on the right leg, which had apparently been caused by some blunt instrument. There were marks on the throat that indicated that an attempt had been made to choke the woman. The inside door leading to the entry had been broken in either before or after the suspected murder, but the outside door remained intact. A hasty autopsy showed that there was a clot of blood at the base of the brain. That organ vas also somewhat congested, owing probably to alcoholism, to which the woman was known to have been ad dicted. She and her son "had been carousing for ten days.
