JUDGE BURKE DEAD
Congressman from the Sixth District Passed Away Wednesday Morning.
Hon. Robert Emmet Burke died at his home in Dallas at 1:50 o'clock this morning. Yesterday he rallied, but his physicians held out no hope and notified the family the end was only a question of a few hours. During the afternoon yesterday Senator Culberson and Congressman Lanham were at the bedside of their stricken colleague and friend and messages came from men of prominence and of all political parties, in all sections of the country, expressing deep solicitude concerning the condition of the stricken Congressman.
During Feb. while he was attending the session of Congress he was taken severely ill with an attack of grip and was confined to his room for several days.
He suffered a stroke of paralysis last Sat. night and since that time has never rallied sufficiently to give hope for his recovery.
Robert Emmet Burke was born in Tallapoosa Co., Ala., Aug 1, 1847. He attended the common schools of Alabama and Georgia, until he was 16 years old. At that time he volunteered in the Confederate service, enlisting in Co. D, 10th Ga. cavalry. His regiment was assigned to Hampton's corps, Butler's division. He served until the close of the war and was at Greensborough, NC, at the time of the surrender. He sustained one wound in battle, a slight one in the arm.
In January, 1866, he removed to Tx. and located at Jefferson, where he began the study of law, teaching school in the meantime. He was admitted to the bar in 1870 and in the following year removed to Dallas, where he opened an office and began the practice of his profession.
He was a member of the city council in 1874-5: was elected county judge in 1878 and re-elected in 1880 and 1882; was elected district judge in 1888 and re-elected in 1892 without opposition.

G. VAN GINKEL KILLED.
Garrett Van Ginkel was killed last night by one of the cars of the Dallas electric railroad system, which he sold about a week ago to parties in Cleveland, Ohio. The fatal accident followed a delightful evening spent with his family and friends at Exall's Lake. The car which was to bear the merry party home brought instead the mangled form of Mr. Van Ginkel, the horrified and grief-stricken wife and children and friends.
Mr. Van Ginkel returned to the city yesterday morning from Waco, where
he had been on a business mission. Last evening he went to Exall's Lake,
a resort about three miles north of Dallas, with
Mrs. Van Ginkel, their children,
Mr. and Mrs. Louis Maas,
Miss Annie Maas,
Mrs. Will Maas, all of Dallas,
and Mr. and Mrs. Ralph of New
Orleans. The party left the Windsor hotel at 6 o'clock equipped for a picnic.
They expected to return to the city on a car due to leave the lake at 10:30
o'clock, but the car did not show up on time and Mr. Van Ginkel, after waiting
for some time, walked down the track to a curve, about 200 yards distant
from the lake, to see if the delayed car was coming, expecting to stop it
and ride back to the lake. It is supposed that he went to sleep on the track,
for he was lying between the rails when the car, which came along about 11:15
o'clock, struck him. It tore a great hole in his side, exposing the
entrails.--The Dallas News, June 20.
