SHOT HIS MAN DEAD
______________
Charles D. Loud of Montgomery County,
Kills Fitzpatrick, a Saloonist.
___________________

A VARIETY GIRL AT THE BOTTOM OF IT
______________

Fitzpatrick Was Her Former Manager and
Was Infatuated with Her-The Tragedy
Occurred at Thunderbolt.

Savannah, Ga., June 4 --- Philip Fitzpatrick, proprietor of the Gayety theater and saloon, was shot and killed tonight at 8 o'clock by Charles D. Loud, an attorney of Mount Vernon, Ga. Miss Helene Stockton enjoys the distinction of being the cause of the tragedy.
Fitzpatrick was well known throughout this section as the keeper of the only variety hall and saloon in the city. Nightly performances were given, consisting chiefly of song and dance specialties.
Miss Stockton was for a long time in the employ of Fitzpatrick and he was understood to be very much enamored of her.
She is a very handsome young lady and a great favorite of the place. About six weeks age she left Fitzpatrick's and went to the Warsaw hotel at Thunderbolt, kept by ? and Mrs. T. C. Butler, both former employees of Fitzpatrick.
This afternoon Fitzpatrick, accompanied by some friends, went out to Thunderbolt, where he drank heavily. He declared that he would marry Miss Stockton, willing or unwilling. He first sent a friend to prevail upon her, but as she refused to consider the proposition, he determined to see her himself. Butler, the proprietor of the place, endeavored to keep him out, declaring that Miss Stockton had left the house. He found that she was still there, however. Butler still refused to let him see her, and the two engaged in a hand to hand fight in which Butler got the worst of it. The two were arrested by the marshall and were taken to the lock up, where they gave bond. Fitzpatrick promised not to go back to the house.
IN MISS STOCKTON's ROOM.
About 8 o'clock Colonel Loud, who had an engagement to go horseback ridding with Miss Stockton, arrived, Fitzpatrick heard that his rival was in the house and became frantic. He forced his way in, and learning that Loud and Miss Stockton had gone to the latter's room in order to avoid him, he rushed upstairs to the room and kicked and broke the door. He had a heavy stick in his hand and rushed at Miss Stockton with the stick upraised. He turned for her, however, toward Colonel Loud, who was standing in the window of the small room, pistol in hand. As Fitzpatrick advanced, Loud fired a shot over his head to warn him. Fitzpatrick still advanced and Loud fired a second shot, striking him in the body. Fitzpatrick continued to advance when Loud fired the third shot, striking Fitzpatrick in the mouth and passing upward through the brain. Fitzpatrick fell and died in a few moments. Colonel Loud surrendered himself to the marshall, who brought him to the city and turned him over to the police.
The woman was also arrested, but was released on bond.
Colonel Loud is well known here. He is at the head of the syndicate that tried to sell 400,000 acres of land in Wilcox and adjoining counties to Governor Northen's old soldier colony.

LOUD WANTS A TRIAL.
-----------------------------------
Somers, The Principal Witness Against
Him, Disappears.

Savannah, Ga., July 13 (Special.)- The State is in a quandary as to what to do with regard to the indictment against Charles D. Loud of Mount Vernon, Montgomery County, who is charged with the murder of Philip H. Fitzpatrick. John J. Somers's, the principal witness for the state, has disappeared and cannot be found. He has been telegraphed for, but none of his friends and relatives knows where he is. It is practically on Somers's evidence that Loud was indicted. Loud's eagerness to have his trial take place and has been urging the solicitor general to hurry the matter up. Somers is under indictment himself for keeping an open toppling house on the Sabbath.

The Lowell Daily News-Thursday, June 13, 1895

THE DROWNING OF FRANK J. DONAHOE.

A GREAT WAVE SWEPT HIM OFF THE STEAMER'S DECK.

There was a High Wind and a Heavy
Sea-His Hat blow off, and he Reached for
it Just as the Big Wave swept over the steamer.

Last night a dispatch was received from the agent of the steamer on which Frank J. Donahoe and his uncle, Peter Fitzpatrcik, sailed from Savannah for New York. It stated that a man named Frank Donahoe was lost overboard from the steamer.
Peter Fitzpatrick arrived in Lowell on the nine o'clock train this morning and full particulars of the sad affair were made known. Mr. Fitzpatrick is looking well after his rough voyage, but he is terribly agitated at the sudden taking off of his nephew. The steamer is supposed to be the Algonqula of the Clyde line, Capt. Pratt in command, but Mr. Fitzpatrick is not sure of this. The steamer had a very rough voyage, the passage being unusually severe, the captain informed Mr. Fitzpatrick and his nephew were standing on deck. The sea was very rough. A gale of wind blew Frank Donahoe's hat from his head at about 11 o'clock. He attempted to catch it before it fell overboard. It was a fatal attempt. A great wave swept across the deck and he was carried into the ocean. No help could be given him.
It can be imagined how rough the weather was when the vessel was delayed in reaching port. At eight o'clock, three hours before the accident occurred, the vessel should have been in New York. It did not reach port until six o'clock Monday morning.
A Newsman was at 16 Keene Street this morning soon after Mr. Fitzpatrick arrived in Lowell. A sister of the drowned man resides here with her husband, Letter Carrier, John F. Roane. it was here that Mr. Donahoe's late home was. The relatives of the drowned man, are frantic with grief over the sad affair.
There is no possibility that the body will be recovered, although if such should happen, it could be identified. His initials are tattooed on his arm; so are other marks.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
There is no truth in the report that the body of Philip Fitzpatrick who was murdered in Savannah, had arrived in Lowell. When Mr. Fitzpatrick and his nephew arrived there, the body had been buried. The burial laws are strict in the South, during this season, owing to the prevalence of fever, and the authorities would not allow the body to be disinterred.
