Charles V. Joubert - June 1, 1895

Committed Suicide

St. Paul, May 22-Charles V. Joubert, and old soldier, committed suicide by shooting himself in the right temple at six o'clock. Despondency led to the deed. He leaves a wife but no children.

Joubert lived at 1086 Reany street. This afternoon he left home to go down town. With no fixed destination in mind he wandered into Thiel's buffat in the Germania Bank Building. There he asked for writing material and sat at one of the tables. The letter which he wrote was addressed to his wife. It tells of the many hardships over which Joubert has been brooding for the past two months. He was a carpenter, and has lost his place in the Great Northern shops: the politicians whom he has worked hard to elect had tailed in their promises to him: The friends whom he had counted as true had deserted him in his hour of need. The letter was rambling and almost undecipherable. It closed with the request that he might be given a soldier's burial.

About 5 o'clock Joubert went home. After supper he started out for a walk. Midway between Frank street and Duluth avenue on Farqulier street there is a low piece of ground filled with rocks and rubbish. Joubert directed his steps toward the place and sat down on one of the rocks. He had a 68 caliber revolver in his pocket. With this he fired the fatal shot.

Joubert was 58 years old. When a young man he moved from Canada, which was the place of his birth, to Wisconsin. At the beginning of the war he enlisted in the fourth Wisconsin volunteers. After three years service he was honorable dismissed. He came to St. Paul about 20 years ago. Since that time he has lived in the vicinity of Post Siding. He worked as a carpenter for the old harvester works, afterwards for the St. Paul and Duluth road and finally for the Great Northern. Some time ago he lost his position, and has since been out of work. His despondency gradually developed into a mild form of hypocondria. He became possessed of the idea that all his friends had deserted him, and that he was doomed to perpetual disappointment.

Joubert has for many years been identified with politics in the Second Ward. He was a republician. During the last campaign he attended many meetings, and often spoke. He sought office of various kinds, but was never appointed. Four years ago he ran for county commissioner and was defeated. His last aspiration was to be appointed as a warden at the state penitentiary. Besides being a member of the G. A. R., he was a member of the A. O. U. W. , Odd Fellows and Masons. He carried a $2000.00 life insurance policy with the Workmen. His nephew, William Joubert, will arrive this morning to superintend the arrangements for the funeral.-St. Paul Tribune.

The above announcement came like a thunder clap to the old members of Co. K. of the old 4th Regiment to whom Joubert was well known as a comrade. He enlisted in old Co. K. at the beginning of the war and served all through the struggle. He was known as Charley McCarter taking the name of his step father. He was a relative of the Ebert family. He was a good fellow, a good soldier and a good comrade and was liked by all who knew him. At the last great re-union at Milwaukee he joined his regiment there where he was the life of every gathering and was warmly greeted by his comrades. Since the war he has lived in St. Paul and became prominent socially and politically. His memory will be long cherished by his old comrades here.

She was born January 12, 1852, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William B. Griem, pioneer settlers of this city and her life was typical of the hardship through which those settlers came.
