Author of the Fourteenth Amendment to
the Constitution Passes Away.

LEBANON, Ind., June 23 -- Judge Stephen Neal author of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution died here this afternoon in his eighty-eighth year. He had been ill for several weeks but was conscious up to a few moments before death.

When the question of amending the Constitution was under discussion soon after the civil war, Judge Neal, who then resided at Lebanon wrote out the fourteenth amendment and sent it to Godlove S. Orth, Congressman from the Lebanon district, saying that it was submitted as a suggestion. In a few days he received a reply from Orth saying that he had submitted the amendment to the committee and that it had been agreed to report it practically as submitted.
