THE MERIDIAN CRIME

Kassebaum, the Murderer, Still Evades the Officers.
(Special to the Pciayune.)

Meridian, Miss., Sept. 26 - There are no new developments in Thursday night's awful tragedy, in which Photographer A. S. Barnes was killed by his employe, J. C. Kassebaum. The assassin is still at large... (the article goes into great length on the search for Kassebaum)...

The funeral of Mr. Barnes, the victim of the tragedy, was held at the First Baptist church in this city this afternoon, at 4 o'clock, the services being conducted by Dr. R. A. Veneable. The interment was in the Rose Hill cemetery. The tragedy remains the sole topic of conversation, and the city is still in a fever of excitement. Universal sympathy is expressed for Mrs. Barnes, who is at the home of a relative in this city. She raves continually about the tragedy, and tells over and over again her account of it. Fears are expressed that her mind will be unable to stand the severe strain and excitement. Large rewards have been offered for the capture of the murderer, and it understood that Pinkerton men are engaged on the case, and it is believe that capture is inevitable.
