rendered n verdict that the porsons camo to
their death at tha hands of 1 homas Samon.
'I he latter was arrested this afternoon nenr
1'1 mouth. Ho did not resist arrest, and
has been taken In cliarge by Plymouth off!
cars. Suspicion being nrouted against
Ford, husband of the murdered woman,
tbut lie might lo Implicated In the affajr,
he wa. arrested this forenoon and remains
In custody. Several suspicious circum
stances tend to show bis guilt.
At Ford'. Mid Ramon', there wa. no evi
dence ct Mrs. Ford', murder, and it Is
thought hor death was accidental at
bamon's hands, and that, wishing to con
ceal tho body, he took It to Ruddy's, think
ing, perhaps, he could carrv it from tha
house during tho night! that Ruddy refused
to assist him, when the struggle ensued.
The supposition Is that Mrs. Ford died
eithor from strangulation or drugging, ai
she frequently Indulged lu strong drink.
Snmon will be brought to Laconla on
Monday for trial. Great excitement pre
vails, and fear, are entertained that n vig
ilance committeo will be organized ami the
prisoner lynched upon his arrival at the
depot. A later report from Plymouth states
that Samon donles all knowledge of tho af
fair, and bis arrest Is a perfect surprise.
Samou has never been regarded as vicious,
even when Intoxicated. At a late hour to
night Mr.. Ruddy's condition was no worse.

Hiciivroin, Mo , Nov. K.
Monday night' tho family ot Jell Uvil
Iter, it well-to-do farmer In tho Mud Creek
neighborhood, were aroused about half an
hour after thoy had roiio to bod by somo
body calling. It was the voice ot n man,
but wn. not recognized. Mr.. Kvilslzer re
sponded by asking what was wanted. Ths
voice replied; "I want to sea JolT." "Who
Is Itf tho woman nsked. "Johnnie Kvil
slzer" (o younger brother of Jeff), was tho
answer. After venting her mind on ths
Imppjpilety of calling folk, up at that time
ot night, tho told her husband to go to ths
door and seo what Johnnie wanted. Uvll
slier got up nnd opened the door, nnd stood
sovorul seconds peering out Into the dark
ness. The voice did not .peak, neither did
Kvllilzcr. A brief period passed perhaps
a quarter of a mluute then a shot was
fired, And tho farmer walked to the bed and
lay down, lie had received his death
wound, but lingered until morning. Tho
bullet penetrated the bowels.
In Intervals ot consciousness the dying
man told hie wife that be could not recog
nize mho wns standing In front ot tho doer
until tho pistol wa. (lied, and then ha saw
distinctly that It wa. WIlllo Miller, hi.
nephew, llo .aid that Miller was scarcely
thf 00 feet away when he flrod. Kvllilzer
ropeated this several timet. A posse wa.
formed and armed, nnd a visit mado to the
house of Tlnfina. Mlllor, tho father of IVIII1.
Miller. Ihe elder Miller t. ono of tho
wealthiest men In that part of the county,
having afaimof 400 acres, well Improvoil
and stocked, lie met the nolgbbors with
out nny show of foiling, and told them that
nis sou nan gone away mesday morning,
and would nut come back for several days. '
'Ihe Mud Creek locullty Is twenty miles
from hero, and rvinoto from the telegraph
and the railroad. Iho roads are bad and
liowj travels slowly. It was not till this
morning that full details nf tbo tragedy
reached Ith-hmond. The Miller nnd Evil
ilzer families are related. Thomas Miller
married a, sister ot Jefr. Kvilslzer, and
Willie Miller it one of the children, lha
families are mixed up In a curious caso now
In court, and this Is supposed by thos. who
believe Willie guilty to havo furnished ths
motive for Mr. Kviltlzer's removal.
Miller was arrested here this morning,
whither he hail coma to be present at the
trial of bis father which was to have been
had to-day on the pending clfarge, lie
rode nJiouiQK hat jaded horse, but upon being
questioned gave a reasonable account of his
movements, though acting strangtly Indif
ferent with regard to the news of the mur
der. Later the elder Miller appeared,
where pon hit bondsman surrendered him
and he was hurried before the Uraud Jury,
and notwithstanding he Is reputed a wealthy
man, such was the feeling caused by thu
tragedy and the supposed connection of the
Millers with It that noons could be found
to ncaln 1:0 on his Itoml nnd ha remained in
custody of the bherllf, Iho feeling emoug
the community Is Intense ami the slightest
particle of corroborative evidence against
the younger Miller may result In a teuton
of Judge Lynch'. Court, lu which case It It
not difficult to predict the result.
