Judge McCutchen’s Death.

North Georgia Sustains the Loss of a Distinguished Citizen.

Dalton, Ga., March 20.—One of the greatest losses sustained by north Georgia within a decade was the death of Judge C. D. McCutchen, whose funeral occurred in this city yesterday at 10 o’clock a. m.

The deceased had suffered with heart disease for nearly a year, and died sitting in his chair Thursday night before a physician could reach him.

Judge McCutchen for many years ably presided on the bench of the Cherokee circuit, and as a lawyer his fame in debate and reputation as one skilled in his profession were not confined to the boundaries of Georgia nor of the south.

His funeral yesterday was an imposing one, and many of the north Georgia bar were present to pay him a last tribute.

Among those from a distance were Judge Thomas W. Milner, Judge J. M. Neel, Judge A. W. Fite, and Col. A. S. Johnson, of Cartersville, Judge Joel Branham, Judge W. M. Henry, and Maj. R. T. Fouche of Rome, Cols. Erwin and Oliver Starr, of Calhoun, Dr. Jones, of Kingston, Col. George Hardwick, of Cleveland, Tenn., and Lieut. Oscar Brown of the United States army.

These gentlemen acted, together with all the members of the Dalton bar, as an honorary escort, followed by Camp 34 of Confederate Veterans and by the stewards of the Methodist church.

The funeral services were conducted by Dr. Goodwin of the First Baptist church and Rev. Luke Johnson of the First Methodist church.

The interment took place at West Hill cemetery.
