DIED,
In Racine Wisconsin, July 17th, Andrew J. REDBURN, Esq., of lung disease in the 36th year of his age.
We find in the "Racine Journal,: of July 24th a very lengthy account of the death and funeral of Mr. Redburn.   The deceased was a native of this county, number of his relatives and many friends still reside here.  He was a brother of Jas. T. Redburn in Skiles' Bank.  He was also one of our own youthful companions and bosom friends, and from the very distinguished honors paid to his remains and his memory we see that he has exhibited in his life the noble and generous traits of character which were so prominent in his earlier years.  We make an extract from the proceedings of Racine Lodge No. 18, A.Y.M. of which he was the honored master:
"We, who were his brothers, and were guided by his councils, deplore his death as that of one who died too early  Therefore, Resolved, If there was one man more earnest and zealous than the rest, to promote the purity, the beauty, and the whole interest of our Order; if there was one man who revered and practiced the principles and feared to offend Masonic Laws, that man was our departed worshipful master.
Resolved, That in our departed Brother we realized the highest masonic virtues.
He was a practical christian when measured by that scriptural rule.  "by their fruits, ye shall know them."  As a man he was honest, as a friend true and constant, as a husband devoted; as a parent, solicitous and indulgent; as a citizen, respected and honored; as a mason he was a worthy example.  Endeared to us by his manly character we will cherish his memory and emulate his virtues, and though gone from our midst our memories will ever have in keeping, his kindly admonitions, and wise counsels."
His was the largest funeral of any private citizen ever buried in that city, several hundred members of the order and an immense concourse of people were in attendance.  The members and employees of the R. & M. Railroad co., (of which he had been an officer for fifteen years) wore badges of mourning, and the engines, cars &c., were also draped in mourning.

Isabella REED (1774-1868)

Death of an Aged Lady.

   Mrs. Isabella Reed, widow of the late Alexander Reed, one of the early settlers of Washington county, died at her residence in Washington on Saturday, June 6th, in the 95 year of her age. Dr. Brownson, in a long obituary notice in Washington Reporter, speaks very highly of her as an exemplary and Christian woman, intelligent, refined, social, and benevolent. She was a daughter of Samuel Lyon, Esq., of Cumberland County, Pa., and was born February 14th, 1774. She was reared amidst the best advantages of Carlisle, noted as it was in early times, for its fine society and educational progress. Among the reminiscences of early life, it always gave her pleasure to give her impression of Gen Washington with whom she often dined at the house of Col. Blaine, her uncle, who was connected with the army, when in 1794, the father of his country made Carlisle the base of his operations against the Whisky Insurrection. About the same time she was married to Hon. Wm. Hoge, afterwards member of Congress, and removed to Washington then comparatively a frontier settlement. She was married a second time in 1819, to Alexander Reed, Esq., one of the early and influential citizens of the town, whose home she made happy, and to whose children, though herself childless, she was all that is implied in the relations of a most affectionate mother.

   On Friday of last week, John Reed was killed while threshing in Robinson township, under most shocking circumstances. One of the journals of the machine became heated and set fire to the straw. Mr. Reed, who was driving, left his place to extinguish the fire, and while thus engaged was drawn into the jaws of the machine up to his middle. The fire increased so much that it was impossible for persons present to render the imperiled man any assistance, and he was burned to ashes while uttering the most piteous appeals for help. A few of his bones were recovered from the ruins, and buried in a neighboring cemetery. A dwelling house, stable and wagon shed were also consumed by fire.

Charles REILLY ( -1882)

CHARLES REILLY
A GASTLEY FIND.
Another Decapitated Man Discovered on
the Southwest Road.

   At an early hour Tuesday morning a couple of boys discovered the naked trunk of a human body lying alongside the Southwest railroad track, this side of Demuth cut. They informed Mr. Demuth who lives close by and through him word was sent to Squire Campbell, who impaneled a jury of inquest, composed of Wm. Vance, George Shaw, Smith Dawson, J. W. Stouffer, John Seaton and Christ Balsley, and repaired to the scene. As stated above, the headless body was found denuded of clothing, and the head was discovered in a ditch a couple hundred yards away. The clothing, torn to tatters, was also found near the track. The remains were identified as those of Charles Reilly. The supposition is that the deceased, who had been in Connellsville the day before and had been drinking pretty heavily, had started to walk home, and at the point indicated had laid down upon the track, either deliberately or in a drunken folly. It is thought he was run over by the last northbound passenger train Monday evening, and that his clothing was caught and torn from his person by some projecting part of the train. Eighty cents were found in his pockets. A verdict of accidental death was returned.

   Deceased was about forty-five years of age, and had no relatives in this vicinity, though it is said that his father is living in New York. He was buried in Chestnut Hill cemetery here at the expense of the county. This is the second or third death of this kind on the Southwest road, and it has been whispered that there is foul play abroad. We scarcely think so, especially in this case, but it is an open question whether the death was not suicide. In support of the later theory, a Courier reporter was informed that Reilly had deliberately laid down upon the Balto. and Ohio tracks near the bridge here on Monday and would have been killed had he not been discovered and dragged off by a passer by. When removing him, Reilly demanded of his rescuer to be left alone, saying that he wanted to die anyhow.

The friends who had come with him from FLorida returned to that state leaving him in the hospital, but without any idea that his illness would terminate fatally.  The hospital authorities themselves did not regard his case as critical, but at midnight on the 30th he suddenly took a turn for the worse and expired.  He had said a few hours before his death that he would write a letter in the morning.  His own belief in his recovery accounts for his unfortunate neglect to inform his nurse that his family resided in Pennsylvania, and that either of his two sons could have been with him in a few hours, if their presence had been thought necessary.  So when he died the Sisters of Mercy naturally communicated with his FLorida friends, and it was through tardy letters with them that John S. Ritenour first learned last week of his father's death.  He at once went to Washington and made a full settlement of all his father's affairs.  He found that his father had been buried in the soldiers' national cemetery, on the beautiful heights of Washington; under the auspices of the Grand Army Post at Washington.  The deceased was also a member in good standing of Will F. Stewart Post of UNIONTOWN.  He was one of a number of old soldiers who died in Washington while attending the Grand Army reunion.

MAILINIA IS NOW ON TRIAL

For the Murder of Antonio Rippe-Jury
In This Case Was Secured With
Much Difficulty—Francis Avenue
Case on Trial This Afternoon and
May Witnesses Testify.

  Uniontown, Sept. 23
Article begins with other court cases.

   After fifteen talesmen had been summoned two jurors were secured yesterday evening to complete the panel for the murder trial of Giovanni Mallini, charged with the killing of Antonio Rippe. At noon today the commonwealth still had eight witnesses to examine. It is not probable that the case will go to the jury today.

   According to the story of the Commonwealth, Rippe was a coal miner at York’s Run and boarded there. After his day’s work was done, he went to his boarding house, where he met the defendant Mallina, whom he knew in Italy, but had not seen since leaving there. The defendant lived while in Italy in a house belonging to Rippe, the deceased, and they were old acquaintances. They ate supper together and talked of olden times in their sunny home in Italy. After supper Mallina asked Rippe to accompany him on a walk. Angello Rippe, a son of deceased, heard the conversation and requested to go along. Mallina objected to this saying to the son, that he had not seen his father for some time and that he wanted to go alone with him as he had important matters to talk about.

   The two started on their walk out the railroad in the direction of Fairchance. They had been gone but five minutes when Rippe returned to the boarding house with blood flowing from two ugly wounds on the back and breast inflicted with a stiletto. He staggered into the house, saying, “he has killed me.” He was removed to the hospital at Uniontown where he died in 24 hours. Mallina was not seen again until arrested at Iselin, a small mining town in Indiana county, by County Detective McBeth who traced him there. D. W. McDonald is assisting the prosecution, and S. R. Shelby and A. E. Jones are for the defense.

WILL HEAR HIS DOOM IN COUNTY JAIL TODAY

Sheriff M. A. Kiefer Has Death
Warrant for Malini
and Will Read It To Him This Morning.
Execution Will Not Be Public.

   Giovanni Malini in the county jail convicted for the murder of Antonio Reppi at Yorks run has 55 days more to live and today the death warrant signed to Governor Pennypacker will be read to Malini by Sheriff M. A. Kiefer. It is expected that condemned man will display the same stolid indifference that he has maintained since his incarceration for the crime. The death warrant arrived through the mail Monday coming direct from Harrisburg. The document is of imposing appearance nearly two feet long and 18 inches wide, bearing the seal of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the personal signature of the governor and Robert McAfee, secretary of the commonwealth. The warrant reads as follows: “Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Executive Department, sends greetings to Mart A. Kiefer, High Sheriff of the county of Fayette. Whereas, at a court of Over and Terminer and General jail delivery held at Uniontown, Fayette county, in September, 1905, a certain Giovanni Malini was tried on an indictment charging him with the murder in the first degree and thereupon on the second day of December, the said court sentenced the said Giovanni Malini to be taken to the county jail, thence to the place of execution and hanged by the neck until dead. Therefore be it authorized and required of you, the said Sheriff of Fayette county or your successor to cause the sentence to be executed on Giovanni Malini on the fifth day of June, 1906, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., in the manner directed by an act of [portion blackened] S. W. Pennypacker, Robert McAfee.

   Monday afternoon after the receipt of the death warrant Sheriff M. A. Kiefer held a consultation with the county commissioners regarding the placing of the death watch over the prisoner. It is usually the custom to place the condemned man under guard immediately after the receipt of the warrant for his execution but Sheriff S. E. Frock varied this by allowing John Jackson to remain with the other prisoners until two or three weeks before the day of his execution and it is likely that this plan will be followed in the case of Malini. The association with other prisoners tends to turn the condemned man’s mind from his coming doom and he is more likely to maintain his nerve, when others are watching. The execution of Malini will not be public. None will be admitted except those having business inside the jail at the time and those necessary for … [balance of article is missing.]
