Yesterday about noon n Br.u reporlcr
learned that'n man was lying at the
point of death from a dose of poison , at
Iho rooms of the Pluunlt hook and ladder
company , on upper Broadway. Hasten
ing to the plnco named the reporter
found the rumor was Indeed true ,
being William llnggorly , a young moil
about 120 years of age , well known in
Council BltilTs , and whoso pnrcnti reside
on Stutsmati etreot. At the time TUB
BER man first arrived upon the scone ,
Haggorty seemed to bo Buffering rory
little , and Iho two doctors then
In attendance were undecided as to
whether ho had really taken poison or
lot , though they were administering
emetics and treating it as a case of that
nature. When lirat asked if ho had
taken poison ho ntrongly denied it , but
ADMITTED TAK1NO BTl'.YUItMXE ,
iaid ho wanted to die , and told Charley
Nichols that the roat of the poison was
behind the door of the room in which ho
a then lying , and a hasty search of the
place designated rovcalcd an ounce bottle
Imlf full of the deadly poison. Just how
much ho had taken could not bo ascor-
allied from the quantity yet remaining
In the bottle , for liad the vial been full
vhon ho took

, hp quantity taken would have boon auf-
cicnt to vomit him , and thus throw it
ut of the stomach. But ovory. effort on
ho part of the physician failed to have
.ho desired effect of bringing up the
strychnine , as it had probably boon in the
stomach n aufliciont length of time to
permeate the system , and after Buffering
for nearly four hours , death came to his
relief , and ho breathed his last at 3:30 :
A coroner's jury was immediately im
paneled , and an inquest hold at tlio placn
where the young man died , and the fol

Some fourteen ycara ago there occurred
at Logan , Harrison county , a fatal saloon
row , in which a innn named Bydo mot
his death , and the hands of a mau troll
known in that vicinity and in Council
Blaffe were stained with the lifo blood of
a follow creature. The particulars of the
murclur , the arront , conviction and BOH
tcnco of the perpetrator , are incidon
itill fresh in the minds of ninny , and
review of the caoa ia therefore unnecc
i.iry. The man who committed the deed
, vnj ; eontoncod to opend the balnuco of
n'n natural Hfowithin thu7nlls of thu
itato'.i prison , nt Fort Madiuon ,
-vliich - at that time was thu
moat sin-ore punishment inflicted by the
awe of Iowa. Ho was immediately tu-
fen to the place of incarceration and on-
; ercd upon the fulfillment of ilio dreary
iml hopulcB3 Rcatciicu that wan intended
to banish him forever from the world at
largo. For eleven yeins ho tolled away
In lila living tomb , itud doubtless nuny

confinement , his health bc an to fail ,
nnd It ia said that the dread disease ,
consumption , had inaiked him for
its victim and wan rapidly
shortening his days of lifo , With these
facts thoroughly apparent , a number of
former friends of the doomed man , and
uf his victim , interceded arid petitioned
Governor Sltormau for his pardon , who ,
iftor every possible plea had been madu
for the priannor , finally consented to
; rant the pardon , but on condition only ,
that hont oncu depart from the etato and
never again coino within its borders ,
This condition was agreed to , and on

A messenger was sent for a

After stopping awhile in front of a

roitkily out of the door , and in a
