A Noted Criminal Executed.
Washington. Nov. 9— Frank William tfuuk, dressed in a Prince Albert, black tie, patent leathers and as cool as he would be while going out to dinner, was banged here at twelve-nine today. June ,3, 1S9S, Funk killed William H. Brooks a wealthy farmer living near Washing ton, cutting his head completely off with an ax, and almost killed Mrs. Brooks, who interferred. He got fi.ioo from a trunk, and on the same night married Brooks' only daughter, who was inno cent of auy knowledge of the awful crime. She had waited outside while he entered the house, ostensibly to get con sent. Before daybreak Funk, the newly wedded husband, was compelled to fly. The chase extended entirely around the world, a distance of 25,000 miles being covered before Funk was captured in Columbia, Mo., August 15, 1899, by de tective James Wedden, of this city. Sev eral times during the long chase Funk was captured, but always managed to escape until he was placed in chains at Columbia. His trial resulted in a speedy conviction, despite the efforts of his par ents, residing in Pittsburg, to save him from the gallows. Three times the day was set for his execution, but each time his attorneys succeeded in getting a stay. The last move of counsel for the prisoner was to make application before the United States Supreme Court for a writ of cer tiorari , based on the ground that when the verdict was rendered one of the jurors was over the age fixed by statute—65 years. The application was refused by the supreme court, and an appeal for clemency to the president was equally futile. At the time of his conviction Funk was but 26 years old. Despite his youth, however, evidence was brought out during the trial, showing that he had served several terms in prison and that he had a record as a thief, forger, biga mist and army deserter. Boers Die Hard. London, Nov. 10.—Roberts reports an other fierce engagement with the Boers east of Pretoria on the Delagoa railroad. The report says: "Smith Donien had a long and severe action for two days with the Boers near Belfast. A later unpre cedented event of this war occurred when 100 mounted Boers charged the rear guard of the Canadians and captured 18 of them. The prisoners were treated kindly and released later. Our losses were eight killed and 32 wounded." Five Men Rilled. Cumberland, Md., Nov. 9.—A large sewer under construction here caved in this morning, burying five men.
