Homburg a prisoner in the county jail convicted on two charges of cattle theft was this morning found dead in his cell under circumstances warranting the grave suspicion that Hia tragic ending was not strictly the result of natural causes Tho the by of suicide Tupito to Strong presumptive evidence Btu Fridg in that direction is Fco Wever met by the statement that Homburg was not of a nature to seek in death the Panacea for his ills and furthermore if such had been his desire the rigid enforcement of prison Rales would Nave effectually prevented the execution of his intent. A history of the Cue As revealed it the inquest held by judge James g. Spann cd offi Cio Coroner dates several Days ago with Tho illness Ofui Wiburg or. Mck. Johnson the county physician we in attendance and finding that Homb Furg was suffering from con Tipa Tion subjected him to the usual treat ment. Homburg was not considered dangerously ill and moved about to jail As usual. During the Day yesterday Homburg was still troubled with Bis bowels and requested or. John Bailey the Day jailor to give him a dose of co Durago bitters a Patent Medicine which or. Bailey had been taking i meet of with beneficial results. Or. Bailey gave him the Subi dose from Hia bottle about two Tablespoon soul. Going off watch that evening when Locking Tho prisoners in their respective cells or. Bailey asked Homburg Bow he Felt a never Felt better in my life quot a Aid Lomburg As to entered his cell. About 8 of clock Homburg was taken with vomiting and in compliance with Bis wish Arto convicted of murder in the second degree who occupied an adjoining cell to Home it org cai1od night Jailer Henry Muller requesting him to Send for i. Johnson As Homburg was Quito sick. After verifying the fact or. Johnson As summoned arriving about 9 o clock. The doctor questioned Homburg and ascertained that the Only Medicine to bad taken was the bitters Given him by or. Bailey which allowing for the interval of time could not have prod of such results. Homburg begged for some opiate morphine. He wanted sleep and As tech treatment was to his Case or. Johnson took from his hyper dermis Cuso two carefully weighed one Grain packages of morphine. Those be car fully divided into four papers making the Dicso Ono fourth Grain each. These packages Tho Docter Gife to the jailor with instructions to give them every two hours until vomiting ceased. Tho entire Quantity Given to a Man of Homburg s pcs it Cal organism would not have produced death. In Tho proportions of onto fourth Grain each at two hours intr Vamp is the drug was harmless. Jailor Robert Webber at 9 10 p. M., gave Homburg the first dose which appeared to do him Good. Webber in consideration of the prisoners illness left a lamp in to cell giving a full View of thu Interior thus enabling the sailors to see him fully. Shortly hereafter jailor Muller in making his rounds was accosted by Homburg who begged him for another dose alleging that be had thrown up the fir Evious dose. Arto who had been Lapening informed Muller to the contrary. Homburg had not vomited after taking the morphine. A Killgore a convict for theft occupying a cell in the same Row corroborated Artois statement. Or. Muller thereupon declined giving Homburg any More Medicine until the Elmo indicated by the doctor. Homburg then asked for some whisky to rub his stomach. Arto had a Little in a flask and he gave it to or. Miller who handed it to Homburg from that time to 11 -.30 p. M., Hom Berg rested comparatively easy. At 11 110 Miller gave him the second one Quarter Grain of morphine. After this Homburg was quiet. Between 13 Aud 1 of clock Arto Hoard quot Homburg breathing vory Quick and fast. The breathing did not Colind Laboured to him. It was very rapid and Strong. He world hear distinctly the front and rear of the cells being open Iron work and Tho dividing partition of Iron. Artois bed is against to partition and so was Hamburg s. Arto thought it was Tho morphine. When he went to sleep to could still hear Homburg a rapid breathing though it was fainter. It is hero in order to state that the action of morphine 1 not productive of such effects As described by Arto. Morphine acts just the opposite. Strychnine from its intensely bitter taste causing thirst makes the breath come Quick and fast. Artois diagnosis was Stry Chinino Poison lug not morphine. At l0 a. In this morning two hours after or.

At five minutes after seven of clock to Day jail or Bailey went to a Lomburg a cell with breakfast. He opened the door and told Homburg to get up and get something to oat but Lomburg made no response. His face was turned Tow amp to Tho partition. To was lying on Bis right Side with his right hand partly beneath his head while his left hand was raised before Hie face As if to shut out the Horried sight of death. Approaching the bed b�0ey discovered that Homburg was dead. He was stiff. In fact so rigid that efforts to restore the body to a natural position for burial were Only partly successful. Or j. Mck. Johnston was the a St witness. His testimony As Tho attendant physician and medical expert 1� Given As follows in full As having important bearing on the Case a i was called to the jail last night about 9 1 it of clock to see we. Homburg a prisoner. When 1 saw him he was complaining of nausea and to fitting. He informed to that he had vomited several times before my arrival. I prescribed four powders of on Quarter Grain each of morphine Ono powder to be Given by the jailor every two hours until vomiting ceased. The patient was perfectly conscious and answered All questions rationally. I asked him if he had taken any Medicine of any kind. He replied that or. Bailey had Given him a dose of con Durango bitter which mrva Airoy had been taking himself. That was All the Medicine be had taken. I saw the deceased no More until this morning at the inquest. I do not know the cause of death but believe from the position of the body and from the amount of rigor mortis and Tho foregoing testimony Aud evidence that deceased came to his death from an overdose of strychnine How or by whom administered i cannot nay. Would advise a chemical analysis of the stomach and contents to be thus ends fell that at present can be Learned by Legal or reports rial investigation and in View of the absence 9/ evidence which can Only be developed by chemical analysis of Homburg a stomach in support of or. Johnston a belief Tho jury consisting of messes. F. D. Hahn Brown John Bailey l. Heller Chas. Menzell and c. Spann returned Tho. Following verdict a we the jury find that the deceased we. Homburg a none to Bis death from causes to the jury unknown but at the same time would recommend that the stomach and bowels be acting on the opinion so pointedly expressed by or Johnston judge Spann Rev Quested professor Voelker a chemist of this City to make the end Inatio Nof Homburg s stomach who Chen View of the failure of the county to for such expert services was doubt a the professor however in the Interj of the general Good has consented and the stomach taken out by or. John ton was Given him. Homburg a surviving relatives an aged Mother and brother were notified of his Fate through or. Julius Behrens. To Mother who is an invalid sent Back the touching message that All her property had been Bep ulessly involved much of it in the defense of her son and she had not the wherewith to Bury him Homburg s brother it is understood will save Bis body from a paupers funeral. We. Bombu1u was a a Ivo of Tho Island aged Twenty four yours. His occupation varied Between driving cattle and slaughtering them. I recently the mysterious disappearance of Stock Down the Island in the Vicinity of Homburg a Domicil led to investigation resulting in his arrest on february 9ib, 1883, on three separate charges of theft of cattle which he laugh tired and sold As beef.
