Son of Gen. Wm & Harriette Cabell
Death of J. J. Cabell.

Well-Known Citizen Passes Away at
His Home in West Dallas After
a Short Illness.

John J. Cabell died at his residence in West Dallas yesterday morning at 7:30 o'clock.
John J. Cabell was the son of Gen. W. L. Cabell and brother of Ben E. Cabell, mayor of the city. He died after a brief illness at his home west of the city. He was born in Fort Smith, Ark. in 1869 and moved with his parents to this city in 1872. During his boyhood, he began to learn the printer's trade, but this work was too confining for his disposition, and much of his early life was spent in the frontier country of this State. He served for some time in the Ranger service under Capt. McMurray and was afterward a Deputy under Sheriff L. H. Hughes. He was married some ten years ago and leaves a widow and one daughter about 5 years of age. Jack Cabell, as he was familiarly known, enjoyed an extensive acquaintance throughout Texas.
As pall bearers, were chosen: Judge Charles F. Clint, Judge Richard Morgan, Frank Irvine, L. H. Hughes, Charles M. Miller and Charles T. Morris. Honorary pall bearers will be J. Sloan Lewis, W. A. Work, R. L. Winfrey, A. L. Simpson, S. A. Rhodes, A. L. Ledbetter and Thomas A. Donahue. The pall bearers will leave the City hall at 9 o'clock.
Judge Richard Morgan authorizes the statement that there will be no session of the Forty-Fourth District Court today until 2 o'clock in the afternoon. This action is taken to allow the officers of the court to attend the funeral of John J. Cabell.
