The remains of Col. Lafayette Henry Fitzhugh, who died Tuesday night on a train en route for St. Louis, arrived in the city yesterday morning over the Texas and Pacific Railroad. After services at the Union Depot, R.H. Coleman, pastor's assistant of the First Baptist Church, officiating, interment was made in Greenwood Cemetery. Col. Robert E. Cowart, Dr. H.B. Howard, Capt. J.W. Smith, Col. John H. Traylor, H.W. Graber and Cooper Nott acted as pallbearers.

Col. Fitzhugh was a native of Virginia. He served in the Mexican War and at the outbreak of the war between the States raised a company in Louisville, Ky. He became sergeant at arms of the Confederate Senate and served until the surrender of the Southern forces. He came to Texas about thirty years ago and became doorkeeper of the House of Representatives. He removed to Washington, but returned to Dallas in 1882, residing in this city up to the time of his death. He leaves a widow and four children -- Mrs. Sam H.
