      Obituary:
      OFFICER GUNNING DEAD.
      He Was a Brave Confederate and a Good Policeman.
      At his home on Powhattan street at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, Police Officer J.S. Gunning died of pneumonia. Mr. Gunning was a native of Tennessee. He served in the Confederate army as a private, and was a member of Camp Sterling Price, of this city. Both as a soldier and citizen, he bore an untarnished reputation. He had been a member of the Dallas police force for four years and was always held to be a brave and efficient officer.
      Officer Gunning was 48 years old. He was at the battle of Franklin when Cleburne and Granbury were slain, and was a captain when the war closed. After the war, for sixteen years, he was either sheriff or chief deputy of one of the most lawless counties in the mountains of East Tennessee. January, 1880, he went to Colorado and passed several years in that state, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana. He had been desperately wounded in the battles of the Confederacy, and his career was an eventful one. Six years ago, he came to Dallas and four years ago, he was placed on the police force. He was a powerful man, 6 feet 5 inches in his stockings, and a week ago, was the picture of health. He was a member of the Police Benevolent association and the funeral was conducted under its auspices.
      Officer Gunning's old comrades of Camp Sterling Price were many of them also present. The pall bearers were a detail from the police department, consisting of Officer H. W. Waller, W. D. Webb, Robert Cornwell, C. F. Durham, O. M. Rawlins and A. Hughes.
      Mr. Gunning leaves a widow and a son. The latter is a member of the Dallas fire department.
