Passed Away at His Home in Fort Worth This Morning.

Fort Worth, Tex., April 1 -- Judge F. E. DYCUS, aged 48 years, a native Texan and a prominent Fort Worth attorney, died this morning.  He removed here from Archer City ten years ago.  He is survived by a widow and five children.

In addition to the above special telegrams announcing Judge DYCUS death were received by Judge CARRIGAN and other parties in this city.

For years deceased made his home at Archer City and was favorably known to most of the people in this judicial district.  He took up his residence at Fort Worth several years ago, but continued to visit and practice his profession in his part of Texas.

The news of his death was not altogether unexpected, as it has been known for three days that he was lying at death's door, suffering from blood-poisoning; which started from a slight scratch on one of his hands.

At his death Judge DYCUS was in his forty-eighth year, and had risen rapidly in his profession.

Knew Him From Boyhood

A telegram from Fort Worth tells the sad news of the death of this noble, ???? man.  I have known him from boyhood, when he was struggling for an education.  I received him into the church and baptized him when he was about 18 years old.  I also baptized his wife when she was a mere girl and said the words that made them one in their young manhood and womanhood.  I have been a frequent guest in their home during those years.  He was a faithful friend, a kind and affectionate husband and father, a noble Christian gentleman, and he had risen to an honorable position in his profession - the law.  He leaves a host of friends, besides his devoted wife and children to mourn his untimely departure.  But they sorrow not as those who have no home.  My deepest sympathy goes out to the bereaved ones.

Big Forty-Horse Power Machine Turned End Over End.

A dispatch yesterday announced the death of Jasper HAND at Amarillo as the result of an automobile accident.  The Daily Panhandle gives further details of the accident, concerning which it says:

"Without fully regaining consciousness Jasper HAND, secretary of the Will A. Miller Immigration Company, died this morning from injuries received in an automobile accident yesterday evening.

Yesterday afternoon in company with Ellsworth DILLON, Mr. HAND started out for a trial spin in his new 30-40 horse-power Mitchell touring car.  He had come for a number of miles south and west and was on his way back when at a point in the lane, a mile south of C. O. WOLFLIN's place on Washington street and near the home of George HAYDEN, the auto skidded out of the road.  Apparently Mr. HAND ????? he then swerved the machine ???? back to the road.  The machine turned beyond his control, one fore wheel entrapped under it in such a way as to reverse the momentum and the machine turned end over end and landed with its wheels in the air twenty feet from the street, where the tires left the ground.  DILLON was hurled clear of the machine and to a greater distance than Mr. HAND, who was thrown violently against the steering wheel and dropped within a few feet of the machine.  Both were unconscious and lay like dead men.

George HAYDEN at his home saw the wreck at or just after the accident and at once jumped on a horse and rode to C. O. WOLFLIN's a mile away. to the nearest phone and sent for physicians. 

Before he returned, Mrs. HAYDEN had endeavored to help the two men, who began to show signs of life.  DILLON recovered enough to get up and help her care for Mr. HAND.  Then he fainted dead away and did not revive until physicians had arrived from town.  DILLON, however, beyond being painfully bruised, considered himself out of danger, stayed up and assisted the others who came to carry Mr. HAND back to his home.

From the first it was seen that Mr. HAND's injuries were such that there was little hope of recovery.  Besides serious bruises elsewhere, one rib was broken and his chest was crushed in.  These bruises caused internal hemorrages, which could not be checked.  His veins, especially in his throat, filled with clotted blood and he finally passed away shortly after midnight."

DYCUS, who was 48 years old last Sunday, a prominent member of the Fort Worth bar and former member of the city counsel of Fort Worth, died Wednesday morning at his home 1601 Hemphill street, after an illness of one week's duration.  An accidental scratch on the hand developed into blood poisoning from which death resulted.

Judge DYCUS was in all senses of the word a self-made man.  A native born Texan, he was left an orphan when a small boy and made his home with a sister in Archer City.  He worked at a various pursuits, but at all opportunities studied law, and in that way fitted himself for the practice of the profession.


He was married at an early age, and shortly afterward, was admitted to the bar.  Judge DYCUS had pracitced law for twenty-one years.  Some years ago, he was elected county judge of Archer county, and filled the position with honor and credit.

Ten years ago Judge DYCUS removed with his family to Fort Worth, where he has since resided.  He formed a law partnership with Judge George E. MILLER.  His wife and five children survive him, and all were present at his bedside when death came.  The children are Harold, I???, Eula, Jewel and Av???.  Harold, the eldest, resides in Archer City, and others make their home here.


In deference to the wishes of the deceased, expressed some days before his death, the remains will be held two days before buried, the funeral taking place Friday at some your yet to be selected.  The arrangements for the funeral and the names of those selected as pall bearers will be announced later.

The C. W. R. M. of Tarrant county which had been called to meet Friday afternoon at the Tabernacle, will meet instead the first Friday in May.  The postponement is ordered owing to the death of Judge F. E. DYCUS.

Aaron SMITH of Weatherford, and who is quite well-known here, having on several occasions visited his sister, Mrs. Joe ERWIN of this city, has been selected as the editor of the Farmers' Union official organ which is soon to be established at Fort Worth.  In speaking of Mr. SMITH, the Weatherford Herald has the following to say: "Aaron SMITH is something of a prodigy in newspaper circles, Born into this world without arms, he has had to meet and overcome obstacles that would have easily deterred a less resolute character.  The fact that he has succeeded where men better equipped by nature have failed, only serves to illustrate the unwavering determination and high spirit of the man."

"The Herald thinks that Aaron SMITH deserved much credit for what he has been able to accomplish in life, and that the man is but little short of a genius.  We rejoice to see him attaining still further success in his chosen profession, and predict for him additional laurels in his newspaper career.  He will give the members of the Farmers' union a paper that will be a credit to the union if they will but give him the proper and necessary encouragement and support."

And Condemned Man Was Also Visibly Affected and Earnestly Protested His Innocence.

Weatherford Herald.

James B. CASON, the convicted murderer of L. F. McLEMORE, is to pay the extreme penalty of the law by being hanged by the neck until he is dead, on Friday, May 22nd.

This was the awful sentence imposed upon CASON in district court this morning, and a crowd of several hundred had assembled in the court room to hear Judge PATTERSON fix the date of execution.

It became known late yesterday afternoon that CASON was to be sentenced at the opening of court this morning and in spite of the bad weather, a large crowd was present to witness the event.

Sheriff POPE and deputies left the jail with CASON promptly at 8"55 and arrived in the courtroom with him at 9 o'clock.  Judge PATTERSON entered from the rear of the room and instructed the sheriff to open court; which was done.  Asking if James B. CASON was in the room, the answer was returned that he was and he was ordered to stand up.

CASON, who was attired in a light suit of clothes, clean shaved except for a thin, light mustache, and with his face covered almost with the pallor of death, slowly arose to his feet and faced the judge.

In a voice tremulous with suppressed emotion, Judge PATTERSON briefly reviewed the fact that CASON was convicted of murdering L. F. McLEMORE at the April first term of the district court, the crime being fixed by a jury of his own selection of murder in the first degree, with the death penalty assessed.  The court referred to the fact that the defendant had been furnished the services of able attorneys who had carried his case to the court of criminal appeals, where it was affirmed according to the mandate received in the case.  He stated that under the laws of the State of Texas, it was necessary for him to impose sentence and asked CASON if he had anything to say before sentence of death was pronounced upon him.  In a husky voice CASON replied:

"Nothing more than that I am not guilty, and I ask the court for all the time it can give me."

That was all he said, and his face was of an ashy whiteness when he made his statement.

Judge PATTERSON assured the prisoner that he had been given a fair and impartial trial and his guilt established by the evidence to the satisfaction of the jury and the courts that had passed upon it.  Accordingly, there was nothing for him to do but to impose the sentence and fix the date of execution.

The sentence of the court is that you, J. B. CASON, shall be taken by the sheriff of Parker county on Friday, May 22, to the place of execution and hanged by the neck until you are dead.

and if you have any arrangements to make, either concerning this world or the next, my advice to you is to make them.  And may the Lord have mercy on your soul.  Remove the prisoner, Mr. Sheriff.

The crowd began to surge out the front door and the sheriff and his deputies carried CASON out the back door and to the jail, where he has been placed in the condemned cell, and will be under constant watch day and night until the hour arrives for his execution.

CASON is still vehemently protesting his innocence, and evidently still has some hope the governor will commute his sentence or grant him a reprieve.  It is not believed he will make a confession until the last ray of hope is gone, and perhaps not then.  It may suit his purpose to enter the presence of his maker with a denial on his lips, and if that is the case, there is no method of compelling him to make a confession.  The majesty of the law will be vindicated when he gives his life for the one he is alleged to have taken.

He has about six weeks to make his preparations to pay the penalty and it may be that during that time, he will make up his mind to make a clean breast of the awful occurrence that took place in the EDDELMAN pasture, last February a year ago, during which McLEMORE was murdered, his money and team taken, and an effort made to burn the dead man's body in order to conceal the horrible crime.
