|Van Lear, Matthew||Death of Dr. Van Lear.Rev. Matthew Van Lear died Tuesday at his home in Mercer county, of Bright’s disease and paralysis. He was a native of Maryland and was educated at Danville. He was pastor of Horeb and Bethel churches near Lexington from 1868 to 1878 and was pastor of the Presbyterian Church here for many years.
He then went to Shreveport, La., and accepted a pastorate, where he labored until failing health caused him to resign his charge and return to Kentucky. After a year’s rest, Dr. Van Lear accepted a call from Providence Church at McAfee, Mercer county, which charge he has had about one year.
Some time ago he suffered a stroke of paralysis, from which he recovered sufficiently to again fill his pulpit. He was then attacked by a severe case of Bright’s disease to which he succumbed.
He leaves a wife and several grown children. No Presbyterian preacher in the State stood higher in ministerial ranks or with churches and Presbyterians generally than did Dr. Van Lear. His congregation and the people, regardless of creed, held him in the highest esteem and admiration.

Harrison Cunningham, the five year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas W. L. Van Meter, died Tuesday morning at their home on South Maple Street, of scarlet fever. Several of the children had been ill of the disease, but in a mild form, and had about recovered, when Harrison was suddenly attacked by the disease in a most malignant form and died in a short time. The remains were buried in the Winchester cemetery Tuesday afternoon, services at the grave by Rev. W. T. McElroy.

The appraised valuation of the estate of Cornelius Vanderbilt amounts to about $60,000,000. Exclusive of the reciduary estate, which is held in trust for Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, the valuation of properties calculated from the amount of inheritance tax is only $32,000,000.
This inheritance tax amounts to $320,272, which has been paid and receipted for by Controller Coler. This sum represents what was the property of Cornelius Vanderbilt in New York, but does not include the transfer tax on the $5,000,000 left to Cornelius Vanderbilt by his father, William H.

|Vanmeter, Allie||A DEPLORABLE ACCIDENTA Worthy Young Man Cut down on the Threshold of Life.
One of the saddest accidents that has happened here for a long time occurred Monday morning and resulted in the death of Allie Vanmeter, one of the most popular young men of this city. On that morning he took several large tin cans in a light cart and started to the country for blackberries. When near the depot his horse became frightened and ran off. In turning the corner into Main street the young man lost his balance and in endeavoring to regain it he dropped one line. The pulling on one rein caused the frightened animal to leave the street for the pavement near the corner of Main and Washington streets. This threw Mr. Vanmeter out and his head struck the telegraph pole, crushing his skull. He was carried into Dr. Venable’s residence where he lingered until night, when he died, without having recovered consciousness. In the afternoon several of the local physicians performed a surgical operation on the skull in the faint hope of restoring consciousness but without avail. The skull was found to be fractured from near the eye to the top of the head, and was crushed in other places. Allie was the only child of Charles Vanmeter, and was a young man of lovable character and very popular with all who know him. The funeral was preached yesterday morning at the Presbyterian church by Revs. J. J. Chisolm and J. S. Kendrick and the remains were taken to Lexington for increments.

John Bush, of color, who murdered Miss Annie Vanmeter, daughter of Jas. Vanmeter, formerly of this county, in Fayette county, last winter, was found guilty of murder in the Fayette Circuit Court last Thursday, and sentenced to be hung. An appeal will be taken in the case, and if it is not granted Bush will be hung in about a month.
The Semi-Weekly Sun Tue., 6-3-1879
John Bush, the negro who murdered the little daughter of James VanMeter, now of this county, was again tried, at Lexington, last week and sentenced to be hung. He has had two trials heretofore, once the jury hung, and the other time he was found guilty and condemned to death. The Court of Appeals gave him a new trial, which has resulted in a death verdict. It was a fearful case of murder, and we have never yet heard a suggestion that could in any way excuse the crime. Thirty-six jurors have heard the evidence and thirty-five have voted for the death penalty. The other who hesitated about hanging because of a repugnance to capital punishment, was for imprisonment for life. He richly merits his fate, and as much as we shrink from the taking of human life, the sooner that monsters who shoot little girls are out of the way, the better it will be for the world and humanity. Bush is to be hung June 24th.

In the prime of her beauteous womanhood with a beautiful home, a loving husband, popular, talented and accomplished, she had so much for which to live and life promised so much to her, but it is finished. Less than a year ago she left her home in far off Colorado to come to our bluegrass land a happy bride. Now, all that is mortal has been consigned to the tomb, and where a short time ago all was happiness, now has the shadow of the angel of death brought sorrow and gloom. She was a lady of noble, Christian character, a devoted member of the Baptist church, and none knew her but to esteem her. Rev. J. N.

Owingsville, Ky., March 20
After suffering horrible agony in numerous convulsions, during which he frothed at the mouth and growled like an angry dog, George Wells, 14 years old, died here at the home of his parents of hydrophobia which developed from an injury received six years ago from a mad dog bite. He was stricken with measles last week, hydrophobia developed Sunday, and his growls and cries could be heard in the street. Wells is the third to die from injuries inflicted by the same dog, which ran through the streets here during the street fair in October, 1900, biting Henry Vaughn and George Stevens and terrorizing the community. Over 100 shots were fired at the mad brute without effect. In passing Robert Wells’ home the dog attacked dogs belonging to Wells, who ran to their assistance. The dog then attacked Wells, biting and lacerating his face terribly. Vaughn developed hydrophobia, dying a week later in convulsions. Stevens’ health failed and he worried himself to death over the injury, and George Wells’ mind failed as the result of his injuries.

Whitesburg, Ky., Nov. 5.—For several weeks a company of bed spring manufacturers have been driving over this county selling their goods. Robert Vermillion, a young unmarried man of this place, and a son of ex-Postmaster W. S. Vermillion, was employed by the men to drive one of the teams. The salesmen and Vermillion spent the night at John H. Mullins’ house. They had drank considerable whisky and were somewhat hilarious. While they were sitting around the fire a dispute arose between Vermillion and one of the men named Flemings over a counterfeit silver dollar, which it is claimed had been paid Vermillion for his services. Vermillion threatened to keep the coin, and, at the proper time, prosecute his employer for passing it, whereupon, it is charged, Flemings drew a gun and shot Vermillion dead while sitting in his chair. Four shots were fired, all of them taking effect, though the first penetrated the young man’s heart, killing him instantly.
Flemings ran from the house and has not been seen since, though a horse belonging to a farmer in the neighborhood disappeared the same night, and was tracked several miles in the direction of Jackson, the nearest railroad station.

George Vest and his wife, who were newly married were in Harrodsburg on Monday, buying household goods. On returning home his wife was with a lady friend in a buggy, preceding the cart in which Vest and a friend were seated and were in Cardwell when the Hollidays rode up in the rear and began firing at Vest who was holding his inebriated companion in his lap. Several shots were fired by them, but the one that caused his death struck him in the back.The Winchester Democrat, Wednesday, February 11, 1891|
|Vest, George Graham||Senator Vest Dead.Distinguished Lawyer and Statesman Passes Away at Sweet Springs, Ma.
George Graham Vest, ex-Senator from Missouri and the last surviving member of the Cabinet of Jefferson Davis, died at Sweet Springs, Mo., at 5 o’clock Tuesday morning, of general debility, aged 74 years. He is survived by his wife, formerly Miss Sallie E. Sneed, of Danville, Ky., and a number of children.
A native of Kentucky, Senator Vest was born at Frankfort on December 6, 1830, and was graduated at Centre college, Danville, in 1848. After leaving Centre he attended the law department of Transylvania University, graduating there in 1853. In that year he moved to Missouri and began the practice of law in the central part of the State being elected a member of the Missouri House of Representatives, and serving in that capacity in 1860 and 1861. During the Civil War Senator Vest was an active sympathizer of the Confederate cause, and was a member of the Confederate Congress.
He was elected to the United States Senate in the place of James Shields, Democrat, who had been chosen to fill out the term of Lewis V. Bogy, Democrat, taking his seat on March 18, 1879. He was re-elected in 1885, 1895 and 1897.
Last Spring, after having served continuously in the Senate for twenty-four years, Senator Vest withdrew to his summer home at Sweet Springs, owing to constantly recurring illness.
Senator Vest’s death was just the kind he did not wish to meet. “Let me not live,” he said frequently, “when life has become an everyday conflict with disease and pain, when we are about to sink into senility and second childhood.”
One of the pretty incidents told of Vest was his eulogy of a dog in a country court in Missouri. Vest was waiting for a case to be called in which he was interested. The dog case came up and a man was being sued for killing his neighbor’s dog. He became interested and the plaintiff’s attorney urged him to speak. He arose and said slowly:
“Gentlemen of the jury: the best friend a man has in the world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter that he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and good name may become traitors to their faith. The money that a man has he may lose. It flies away from him perhaps when he needs it most. A man’s reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honor when prosperity is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our heads.
“The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog. A man’s dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master’s side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer. He will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens. If fortune drives the master forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him, to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies.
“And when the last scene of all comes and when death takes the master in its embrace, and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad, but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even in death.”

A protracted meeting had been in progress at Powell’s schoolhouse for several days, which Miss vice had been attending. Enthusiasm was very high, and several conversions were made, Miss Vice being among them. It appears that she became mentally deranged on the subject of religion, and insisted that the preacher give way to her, and began shouting and exhorting the people. She was removed to her home, but her excitement kept up until she died from sheer exhaustion.—Owingsville OutlookThe Democrat, Wednesday, February 12, 1890.|

The stores were closed and hundreds of men with bloodhounds turned out to hunt the criminal. Peculiar foot prints fastened suspicion on a neighbor, Hugh Marshall, a _____man, who was missing. After several days he was found hanging to a rafter in an old barn. He had evidently committed suicide.

LITTLE ZODA VICK.
Whole Male Population Turned Out to Hunt For Her Murderer.
Russellville, Ky., Aug. 21.-Zelda, the 15-year old daughter of C. M. Vick, a prominent farmer of this county, was murdered Wednesday afternoon in sight of her father’s house. She had been sent to the spring for milk for dinner and failing to return search was instituted. About 4 o’clock the body with head crushed was found in a fence corner partly covered with leaves. One hundred men with bloodhounds have gone to the scene of the murder and if the guilty person is caught a lynching will follow. The Vick home is about five miles from town, near asphalt mines. Russellville, Ky., Aug. 22.-The murder of pretty little Zoda Vick Wednesday continues to be the absorbing topic. The business houses were all closed Thursday and the whole male population turned out to aid in the hunt for the murderer. A reward of $500 has been offered by the county judge for his capture, and Gov. Beckham has offered an additional reward of $500, making a total of $1,000. Never in the history of the county were the citizens so wrought up. The murder of Miss Vick is the most brutal in Logan county’s annals of crime. Hugh Marshall, a former employee of the Vick family, is supposed to have been connected with the murder. On searching Marshall’s house he was not to be found and had sent his family to a near-by neighbor. Upon investigation a pair of trousers spattered with blood was found and an attempt had been made to cut out the spots with scissors. Marshall is still at large.

|Villiers, Joseph F.||Triple Tragedy.Jealousy Drives a Young Woman to Kill Her Widower Lover and Baby and Then Take Her Own Life.
Louisville, Ky., Sept. 16.—One of the most terrible tragedies that ever occurred in Louisville was revealed Thursday morning at the Enterprise hotel on east Market street. The occupants of room 4 failing to answer a call, the door was broken in and on the floor lay a 6-months-old girl baby dead from poison. Joseph F. Villiers, with his arm about the babe, dead with a bullet hold in his temple, and across his body that of a beautiful young girl, Nellie McCuffin. Every circumstance indicates that she killed Villiers and the baby and then committed suicide.
The only apparent motive was jealousy. Villiers was a motorman on the Seventh street trolley line and the son of a farmer of Meadow Lawn, Ky., also the woman’s home. He was a widower and the baby his daughter by the dead wife. The trio went to the hotel at 8 o’clock Wednesday night and registered as Geo. F. Villiers and wife, Meadow Lawn, Ky. The coroner’s investigation indicates that the woman had purchased morphine before going to the hotel. This was given to the baby in milk and Villiers was sent out on some pretext, while the dose was administered. She also took the drug, but it failed to take effect at once. When Villiers returned she evidently killed him and then took a larger dose and fell across the two bodies to die.

He was a native of this county, the oldest son of Thos. Vivion, who lived on Lower Howard’s creek not far from old Providence church and who died about the beginning of the civil war.
William Vivion’s mother was a Bush and he was thus related to the large family of that name here.
Seventy-five years ago he moved to Mercer county and bought several hundred acres of wild land which is now among the best in the county. This land increased greatly in value and at one time he was considered the wealthiest farmer in the county. His sons, however, invested largely in Western boom towns and he thus lost much of his wealth.
He was a great admirer of Alexander Campbell and an earnest member of the Christian Church.
His wife, who was Miss Christy, of this county, died many years ago and he never remarried.
