G.E. FAHM, AGED VETERAN, DEAD--PASSED AWAY YESTERDAY AFTERNOON AFTER A LONG AND LINGERING ILLNESS.

        Maj. Geo. E. Fahm passed away yesterday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Gustaf Anderson, after a long and lingering illness.  He had been a sufferer for many months and a few weeks ago was placed in the city hospital, where it was soon realized that his death was only a matter of days, and it was then decided to remove him to the home of his daughter.
        Major Fahm was 79 years of age, was a Confederate veteran, and wounds which he received in the battles of the sixties, six in all, partly brought on his illness.  While, of course, his death was not due to these old wounds, when he was taken ill two of the wounds for the first time in years gave him some pain, and during the past few days these wounds became sore and painful.  This is said to be the first time that they have given him any trouble in  years.
        Mr. Fahm fought in many of the hardest battles in the Civil War.  In the battle of Gettysburg he received two serious wounds on the same day, and was in many other hard struggles.
        The deceased was also a Mason, one of the oldest members in this city, and has been an active member of the Confederate Veterans association ever since the Civil War.  he is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Anderson, one son, John R. Fahm, one brother, Captain B.A. Fahm, and one sister, Mrs. Oxford Green, all of this city.
        The funeral will take place this afternoon at 3 o'clock.  Rev. ?. E. Roberts, of the Baptist church, officiating.  The Masons, Confederate veterans, Daughters of the Confederacy, and other such organizations, attending.

THE SUICIDE OF MR. FISH—More of the Causes Which Probably Led to His Sad Death.

            The suicide of Mr. Fish in Brunswick possesses an interest to Macon for the reason that only a few days ago a Macon man married his daughter.  The Brunswick Morning News gives these further particulars:
            The story of Mr. Fish’s life is a sad one.  From what can be learned he was a man that had seen better days.  He was born of wealthy parents in northern Kentucky; had been given a fine education, and until manhood had been accustomed to luxury and idleness.  He married a New York lady of refinement and culture.  When the war came it swept away their home in Kentucky.  After the war they grew poorer each year.  Mr. Fish began drinking, and from bad to worse they moved from place to place until they came to Brunswick where they did not see the best of this world’s good things, and fortune was not favorable in her smiles.  Mrs. D.T. Dunn discovered that Mrs. Fish and herself were from the same town and took quite an interest in her, and when Hanover park was enclosed, and the city decided to beautify it, Mr. Dunn secured the place of park-keeper for Mr. Fish, as everybody in this city knows, was devoted to his work, and his very life seemed wrapt [sic] up in the flowers, and he guarded them with jealous care.
            A few years ago his only son died and he never ceased to grieve for the boy.  Early this summer his wife went north to visit her people and report said that she would not return to her poverty stricken home.  His only remaining child, a young lady, remained until last Tuesday, when she was married to a young man of Macon, and left for the home of her husband.  A few nights ago some miscreant under cover of night, cut down some of the most choice flowers in the park.  Then, too, a good deal has been said of late, in politics, concerning the wisdom of keeping a man on a salary to watch after the park.  All of these things preyed on his mind, and it has been noticed by several people of late that he was very moody and peculiar.  He had a conversation with Mr. J.R. Cook a day or two since, in which Mr. Cook thought that Mr. Fish was not balanced in mind.  The supposition is that he brooded over his troubles until he felt that he had no friends; that his family and all that were dear had gone or deserted him, and in a fit of desperation he took away his own life.

PARK POLICEMAN FISH Takes his own Life by Blowing his Brains Out.

            Park Policeman J.W. Fish shot himself last Saturday with a .38 calibre Smith & Wesson pistol whilst seated in a chair in his kitchen.
            Mrs. Fish has been away for some time visiting relatives and friends in New York and Kentucky.  Miss Ella Fish, the daughter, was married two days before to Mr. Jas. McRea, of Macon, so there were none of the family at home, except Mr. Fish.
            A gentleman named Barnard and his family from Florida occupy rooms upstairs in Mr. Fish’s house.  About seven o’clock in the morning Mr. Barnard heard the report of the pistol, and found on coming down stairs Mr. Fish seated in a chair in the kitchen, pistol still in hand and his head leaning back against the window, with a ghastly hole in his right temple and the blood and brains oozing out.
            Policeman Dubberly was soon on the ground and took charge.  The writer got to the scene shortly after, and found that life was extinct.
            Those who have seen most of him lately, state that he has been quite low spirited of late, saying that he would lose his place as Park Policeman in the new deal in politics this winter, and that he has been drinking heavily of late.
            We could find no writing of any kind except an unsealed envelope on the bureau in his room, addressed to Mrs. Jas. McRea, No. 454 Oak street, Macon, Ga., containing a post office notice of registered letter in post office for Miss Ella Fish.

DEATH OF MR. O.H. FISH

            On Sunday last this gentleman passed away suddenly, the victim of a congestive chill.  He was at the breakfast table apparently in good health and spirits, though he had been unwell for several days, and at noon he was a corpse.  His death was a shock to our people, he being well known and much liked and respected.  His stricken relatives, and especially that aged mother, have our most sincere circumstances.  His funeral took place on Monday, and was largely attended.  He was interred with military honors by the Riflemen, of which he was a member.  Our band, of which he was also at one time a member, participated in the ceremonies.

CARD OF THANKS—EDITORS ADVERTISER AND APPEAL:—Please allow us, through your columns, gratefully to acknowledge the kind ministrations of the good people of this city during the brief fatal illness of our son, O.H. Fish.  To the band and military company, the ladies making floral offerings, and to the large concourse in attendance at the funeral obsequies, we tender sincere gratitude.  The demonstrations of such sympathy will be a treasured memory in connection with the almost crushing bereavement of THE FAMILY.

BURNED TO DEATH—The Terrible fate of An Atlanta Lady in Brunswick.

            BRUNSWICK, Ga., November 8.—[Special.]—About 7 o’clock tonight a human pillar of fire was seen running down Egmont street. Terrific screams attracted a crowd, which ran to the burning figure. A blanket was hastily thrown from a window. The fire was extinguished, and the unfortunate victim was found to be Mrs. Dudley Fleming, formerly Miss Alice Jones, of Atlanta, the wife of an engineer on the Brunswick and Western road. The burns are pronounced fatal and death is expected hourly. The dying woman sent for Rev. Mr. McCook, and the scene at the bedside was touching. The accident was caused by lighting a fire with kerosene oil. Mrs. Fleming leaves three children, boys. Her mother and brother are expected from Atlanta today. Spectators pronounce it the most heartrending scene ever witnessed in Brunswick.

LOUIS FLEMING DROWNED—Was Cashier of Savings and Trust Company—Indications Point to Suicide.

            Savannah, March 31.—Special from Brunswick to the Morning News says.
            Cashier Louis Fleming, of the Brunswick Savings and Trust company, was drowned today.  Indications point to suicide, but several theories are advanced.  Bank officials announced that his cash and book accounts are straight except for an error in addition of $100 on his discount book.
            Bank Examiner Speer reached Brunswick today.  He checked up Mr. Fleming’s cash and it proved correct.  He then checked his books and found the small error of $100.  Fleming’s attention was called to the error.  He put on his hat and said he would be back shortly.  Two hours afterward his body was found floating in the river.
            A run commenced on the bank.  All demands were promptly met and the bank remained open 15 minutes after banking hours to pay depositors.
            It is believed that today when Examiner Speer spoke of the small error that Mr. Fleming became temporarily unbalanced.  He had been working unusually hard, day and night, for months, and his high strung, sensitive nature is believed to have given way.  He is believed to have misunderstood the examiner and taken the remark as a reflection on his honor.

CASHIER FLEMING COMMITS SUICIDE—His Body Was Found Floating in Oglethorpe Bay at Noon on Yesterday—HIS ACCOUNTS CORRECT—He Has Some Disagreement With Bank Examiner Speer, Who Was Making an Examination of the Bank Books He Kept.

            Brunswick, March 31.—L.A. Fleming, cashier of the Brunswick Savings and Trust company, lies a corpse on the wharf at Rosendo Torras.  His body was found floating in the Oglethorpe bay at half past 12 today.  It is supposed that he committed suicide.
            Bank Examiner W.A. Speer is in the city and was making an examination of the bank.  About half past 10 he and Fleming were going over the bank papers and checking up various items.  It is said they had some contention about an item and Fleming became angry and excited and took his hat and left the bank, saying he would return in a few minutes.  The next heard of him was a telephone message stating the body of a man had been found in Oglethorpe bay.
            Investigation proved it to be Fleming.
            Fleming belongs to one of the most prominent families in southern Georgia.  His father, T.O. Fleming, was from Liberty county, and they have many relatives throughout the state.
            Louis Fleming was known by nearly everybody in Brunswick and had the confidence of all.
            It is said that his accounts are all right and that there is no shortage.  His was an extremely sensitive nature.  No other solution of the mystery is offered.
            He was married to Miss Minnie Cargyle, well known in many cities in Georgia, and most highly esteemed here.  On the 5th day of last November the young couple began life under unusually happy auspices.
            The bride is prostrated with inexpressible grief.  His mother’s heart is almost broken.  No sadder event has ever occurred in Brunswick.  His friends think the drowning may have been accidental.
            Bank Examiner Speer has completed the count of the cash and finds every cent called for by the books in the vaults.  Vice-President Aiken states that his accounts are absolutely correct as ascertained by the examination made today.  A slight run was made on the bank, but it is in condition to meet any run.
            So soon as the facts are known confidence will be restored and there will be no further trouble.  The bank does not owe a dollar on rediscounts and has no liability whatever except to depositors.

FLEMING’S FUNERAL—It Was One of the Saddest Events in Brunswick’s History.

            Brunswick, April 1.—The funeral services over Louis A. Fleming were held from St. Mark’s Episcopal church this afternoon.  The eight young men who acted as groomsmen at his marriage on the 4th of last November were pall-bearers.
            Nothing so sad as this death has ever occurred in Brunswick.  The death is still shrouded in mystery.  A full investigation of the banks affairs furnishes no explanation.  So extremely cautious and accurate was he that suicide could only be accounted for upon the theory that the consciousness of having made a slight error involving only $100 temporarily unbalanced his mind.
            Many of his friends think he went on the wharf to find his brother and fell accidentally into the water.  There is no trouble with the bank today.  So great was public confidence in Fleming here there was no run at all.  Bank Examiner Speer says he and Fleming did not have any unpleasant words.

TIGER FLOWERS IS DEAD AFTER MINOR ILLNESS—“Georgia Deacon,” Ex-Ring Champion, Dies Suddenly in New York Hospital.

            New York, November 16.—(AP)—“Tiger” Flowers, the taciturn negro “Praying Deacon” who formerly ruled the middleweight boxing ranks, died shortly after 8 p.m. tonight in a private hospital here following a comparatively minor operation.
            The Atlanta, Ga., battler submitted to an operation for removal of a growth above his right eye at 3 o’clock this afternoon.  Although he came out of the either [sic] in “fair” condition, he suffered a sinking spell soon afterward and was rushed back to the operating room, where he failed to rally.
            Flowers, a deacon in a church at Atlanta, Ga., where he made his home, wore the famous “Tiger” bathrobe that has appeared in rings all over the country when he walked to the operating room this afternoon.  After a few breaths of ether he murmured his last words:  “If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.”
            The man who lost his title to Flowers—Harry Greb) died in a hospital at Atlantic City in October, 1926, under almost the same circumstances.  Flowers was beaten for the title in Chicago by Mickey Walker on December 3 of the same year.
            The negro battler, one of the busiest of present-day fighters, won 19 contests this year and seemed due for another chance at his old title due to legal measures planned at Madison Square Garden today to secure a match with Mickey Walker.  Flowers fought twice last week, gaining a draw with Maxie Rosenbloom in Detroit November 9 before knocking out Leo Gates, heavyweight, in four rounds here last Saturday.
            Flowers, 32 years old, is survived by a widow and one child.

KNOWN HERE AS THE “WHITEST COLORED MAN.

            Flowers was known in Atlanta as “the whitest colored man in the ring” because of his conduct during his career.  He was always game and he always fought his hardest.  His conduct was unimpeachable and he was one of the most popular fighters the south has ever produced.
            Born at Camilla, Ga., on August 5, 1895, Flowers spent his early days in Brunswick, where he began fighting.  The story among ring followers goes that Walk Miller, back in 1918, sent Billy Hooper, well-known local negro fighter, down to Brunswick to fight Flowers, then an unknown.  Flowers knocked Hooper out in short order and the latter came back with the word that Flowers was a comer and Miller brought him to Atlanta.
            At that time Miller owned a gymnasium at the corner of Forsyth and Hunter streets, and he began putting Flowers in preliminaries.  His gameness and fighting spirit soon began to attract attention and he advanced rapidly.  Under the management of Miller, Flowers was soon fighting better-than-average men and about four years ago made his debut in New York, where he immediately gained popularity.
            Flowers, ofttimes [sic] called the “Fighting Georgia Deacon,” was a prominent church worker among his people and a member of the Butler Street C.M.E. church.
            Once he was established in New York, Flowers kept going up until he got a chance to fight Harry Greb, then holder of the middleweight title.  The fight was 15 rounds, to a decision, and went the entire limit.  Flowers put up one of the great fights of which he was so capable and won the decision.  That was on February 26, 1926.
            Then, on December 3, of the same year, he defended his newly-won crown against the onslaught of Mickey Walker.  The fight was held in Chicago, and went 10 rounds.  Walker was given the decision, which occasioned considerable wrangling and a return bout was the outgrowth of the arguing which followed the fight.
            There was some argument over Walker’s going through with the return bout, and recently the National Boxing association and the New York boxing commission ordered Walker to meet the Georgia ringster.
            The order by the New York body was issued Wednesday and called for a bout within the next five days.
            Shortly after that story clicked in over the wire, bearing the message that meant so much to this popular and game colored man, those same wires again carried a message—announcing his death.  Telling the story of the passing of a great fighter and a good citizen.
            For Flowers was that.  He made a good-sized fortune during his ring career and gave a large part of it to colored churches in Atlanta and Georgia.  He owned a home in Atlanta that is one of the most beautiful in the city.
            But the followers of ring affairs and those connected with it will miss Tiger Flowers, because he was a square shooter and loved by the white man and colored man alike.

TIGER FLOWERS DIES SUDDENLY IN NEW YORK

            Theodore (Tiger) Flowers, colored, of Brunswick, former middle weight champion of the world, died suddenly in New York Wednesday morning, following a minor operation for the removal of a growth over one eye.  Tiger Flowers was raised in Brunswick where his father, Aaron Flowers, still resides, with other members of his family.  He entered the ring as a pugilist some twelve years ago under the management of Lee Bailey, colored boxing promoter of the famous L Street Park and became so proficient that he attracted the attention of Walk Miller, promoter of Atlanta, under whose management he steadily climbed the ladder until the championship of his class was his reward.  His loss of the title last year is one of the outstanding scandals of the prize ring, it being generally agreed that he was robbed of it by a grossly inaccurate decision of the referee.
            Flowers, always a steady and ambitious man, was known as the Georgia Deacon, because of his publicly announced interest in religion.  He saved his money and was reputed to be possessed of considerable wealth, among his holdings being a home in Atlanta said to have cost him $65,000.
            Telegrams received here by members of his family and his lodge, indicate that his body will be brought to Brunswick for burial, either Sunday or Monday.  There will be wholesale mourning among the colored population of Brunswick, all of whom revered and respected “Tiger”, who was their idol.  He had a wide acquaintance and close friendships among the white people of the city.  His father is one of the most highly respected colored citizens of the city.

DEATH OF B.W. FURLONG—A Well Known Mill Man Ends His Life With a Dose of Laudanum.

Albany News—News reached the city yesterday morning of the death of Mr. B.W. Furlong, at his home at Sniff, on the Brunswick and Western railroad, on Friday evening.  He died from the effects of a dose of laudanum which he took, it is supposed, with suicidal intent.
            Coupled with other reports as to what caused him to end his own life, it is rumored that he killed a negro not many days ago and sunk his body in the Alapaha river.  He had been on a protracted spree just before his death, and had involved himself in a good deal of trouble.
            Mr. Furlong was well known in this city and all along the line of the Brunswick and Western railroad, having been engaged in the saw mill business on this line of road for several years past.  While he was a very clever and companionable gentleman and an industrious business man when sober, he appeared to place no value upon his own life when on one of his protracted sprees, and was generally regarded as a reckless and dangerous man.
