uemopelis is a town of about 2,000 in
habitants, situated en the Tem Bcckbee
river. The main read, leading te Mississ
ippi, cresses the river at this place. The
ferry is right in front of the town. In
August last this ferry was kept by a white
man named Martin. He lived in a cabin
en the western or Sumter ceuntv bank of
the river, and about fifty yards from the
landing. One morning about the middle
of August, just as Martin was sitting down
te eat his breakfast some person called at
the ferry. He went down the bank saying
he would put the man ever and then come
back and finish e'ating. He did net return.
His wife called him and receiving no an
swer went down te th i.i,,!;.
and found a peel of bleed, and
saw where a heavy body had been dragged
into the water. She gave the alarm, and
in a few minutes a party of gentlemen came
ever te her assistance. The body of Mar
tin was seen found and taken out of the
river. It was still warm and bleeding pro
fusely. He had been killed by a blew in
the back of the head, which showed plainly
that the instrument used had been an axe.
Circumstances led te the arrest of a mulatto
named Huberts Wells, and a negre named
Rufus Smith. They were strangers in
the community and had been employed en
the government improvements of the
At the November term of the Marengo
circuit court, Wells and Smith were tried
for the murder. Luther R. Smith, a Rad
ical judge, presided. They were defended
by Hen. Jas. T. Jenes, ex-member of Con
gress. The jury found them guilty of mur
der and affixed the death penalty.
When called un for sentannn TCnlmrf
ells spoke about as fellows :
"Judge, you ask me what I have te say.
I want te tell you, but I can't new ; will
you give me a little time?" The judge
said kindly, " I will give'yeu time ; I will
wait en you and gladly hear what you have
te tell." After waiting a few moments,
Wells, with great difficulty and in a low
tone, said : "Judge, I am guilty; I knew
I am going te be hung ; I killed the man ;
I gave him a tin bucket worth 03 cents the
evening before, te put me ever the river;
he said, if I came back and paid him 33
cents, I could get the bucket ; the man
came te the lauding ; he steeped down te
unfasten the beat ; I knocked him en the
head with an axe ; he tried te get up ; I
hit him again ; I knew I am going te ba
nung ; i don't want Rufus hunir : he
services, and seemed te join in the prayers.
He again repeated what he had said in the
court house, and solemnly declared that
he alone was guilty and that Rufus Smith
(who he believed had already been hung)
was innocent of the murder. He bid the
officers and ministers geed bye ; the drop
fell, and with a confession of his own
guilt and a declaration of his companion's
innocence en his lips, he died with hardly
a struggle. After 30 minutes the body was
cut down, placed in a plain coffin and the
colored people buried it decently. The
crowd quietly dispersed and before sunset
everybody was gene.
It is a singular case ; people de net
knew what te think. It leeks iiieredihln
that a man will die with a lie in his mouth.
The preachers are inclined te believj
Wells, but most of us discredit him en
tirely. The evidence showed clearly that
two persons had committed the murder.
Smith and Wells had been together for
some weeks" ; they were arrested together
after having walked en the way te Miss
issippi, nearly 40 miles, in about a day and
night. The tracks in the sand corres
ponded exactly with theirs, and when ar
rested Smith had the dead man's
pocket book in his pocket. His
clothes wcre bloody. He never gave
any explanation of either of these facts.
Beyond question, the evidence against the
two was as clear, as conclusive, and as
convincing as circumstances could make it.
Against this is the dying declaration of a
man who takes all the guilt en himself and
exonerates the ether party. My own con
clusion is. dvinsr declarations nrn net reli
able, or at least cannot de away with with
facts, clearly proven by unquestioned tes
timony. Whether the governor will par
don Rufus Smith, remains an open ques
tion. If he believes Rebert Wells, he
ought te de se ; if he does net, then he
should let the sentence of the court be ex
fitz Jehn Perter.

the man sat down, looking terrified
and heart-broken. The confession had
every appearance of being true, but no
body believed it. The evidence was clear
and conclusive that the murder had been
committed for the purpose of robbery and
that two persons had participated in the
commission of the crime.
Rufus Smith, in reply te the court,said :
"Judge, I am net iruiltv. I left Rebert
early in the morning. I did net sec him
till late in the day. He told me he had
killed the ferryman. I did net believe him.
I said if you did kill the man it was the
worst day's work you ever did."
The presiding judge assured the prisoners
that a thorough investigation should be
made and that the facts would be repre
sented te the governor. The prisoners
were then sentenced te be hung en the
lGth of January.
Lntil te-day Rebert Wells and Rufus
Smith have been confined in separate cells.
They have been visited by ministers of the
gospel, selected by themselves. They had
no friends or relatives. Each persistently
adhered te his story. Wells maintained
that he alone was guilty, and Smith as
serted always that he was innocent.
This is a bright, beautiful day ; the temper
ature is about 70 f., and it leeks and feels
mere like spring than mid-winter. People
began coming in te sec the hanging at an
early hour, and by 12 o'clock the villain
was crowded with men, women and chil
dren. The large majority of the men and
all the women were negrees. I found that
all of them believed in capital punishment,
and were determined te see the two men
hung if possible. The fact that the ignor
ant and vicious always advocate capital
punishment is a strong argument for abol
ishing "the cruel relic of barbarism."
The Alabama law requires that execu
tiens shall take place in the prison, or
prison yard, and prescribes who shall be
punished. The gallows was in the jail
yard, which is surrounded by a brick
wall 14 feet high. The crowd were deter
mined te see the hanging. Very seen
the tops of the neighboring houses,
the court house windows and the
trees, around the prison were covered
with negrees. Here they remained for
mere than three hours. The prisoners re
quested the sheriff " te give all the time
he could " and he did net bring them out

Smith came first. He is a full-blooded

New Way te Way Chess.
Londen Daily Telegraph.
Few games of skill have given rise te se
many curious exneriment.s as elmsa Pmmi
amateurs of this scientific recreation have
been known te build huge marble courts,
paved with black and white square slabs,
and te play match after match daily upon
these Brebdignagian chess beards, with
full grown men for pieces. Eminent pro
fessionals, again, have astonished the world
from time te time by playing a dozen
games simultaneously, blindfolded. But
the quaintest innovation hitherto intro
duced into chess is surely that recorded bv
our Hungarian contemporary llosvele llesvele
meny. Four young gentlemen resident
at Presburg, one of the "fastest" cities of
Magyarland, recently undertook te play a
match at chess under the following extra
ordinary conditions : "Sixty-four squares
were chalked out upon a billiard table and
the pieces were represented by bottles con
taining wines of various qualities. Cham
pagne was the king, claret the queen, Bur-
gumty me oisneps, pert the castles and
Madeira the knights, while pint
flasks of common Hungarian vintages
steed for the humble, but effective
pawns. Of the special playing rules
lain down for observance, the most re
markable was that which rendered it obli
gatory upon every player making a move
te empty his "piece" at a draught. Faith
ful compliance with this ordinance, how
ever, was found upon experiment te inter
fere somewhat nrematiimlv witli tlm t.
gress of the game, for, by the time the
opening moves had been executed upon
strictly Bacchanalian principlcs.thc players
were stretched upon the fleer, around and
under their tee convivial chess beard. Net
even Magyar heads, well seasoned by geed
liquor though they be, can cope with the
difficulties of playing two games at once,
and it docs net, therefore, surprise us te
learn that this attempt te dovetail draughts
upon chess resulted in a fiasco.
Washington's Market Cart.
On the 20th of April Braddock left Alex

ans from the town that trembled and grew.
When the French power in Virginia was
broken, lie married, and "society" was
chagrined at its early experiences of his

"Alexander, though small, was lovely, but
had no charms for the palate. By tobacco

te talk about lamilies. Of course such
great people could net run market carts.
Hence the Belhavenites often sat down te
a dinner of salt meat and jehnny-cake. But
when Washington brought the wealthy
widow Custis te Mount Vernen, a market
cart was constructed, and twice a week
sent te Belhaven with fat things that
amazed the lean market. Country gentle
man dining in town wondered at the
change of fare, and thus it was discovered,
te the mortification of some of the little
great ones, that Colonel Washington ran
a market cart. " Society " then, if proud,
was often plain ; for Washington writes

table-cloths, and bread and butter with

Confessing Ulurder in His Sleep.
Uew the Assassin of Jacob Miller In Chicago
was Detected and Captured.
One week age Jacob Miller, a saloon
and bearding house keeper in Archer ave
nue, Chicago, was called te his deer and
shot dead by a person then unknown. Last
night the police arrested Capt. Jas. B.
Dixen, a stockyard rough, for the murder
and quietly locked him up.
On the day of the tragedy Dixen en
gaged beard at the Drevers' hotel, but
seen afterward disappeared. Night before
last he returned for lodging, and was
givenaroemin company with a Mr. Bar
rett, who is employed in one of the pack
ing houses. During the night Barrett
noticed that his compauien was restless,
and for this reason was unable te obtain
much sleep himself. After tossing in bed
for some time and muttering unintelli
gibly, Dixen finally seized a revolver
which he had placed under his pillow,
and flourishing it above his head cried
out : "I finished the of a ; I
had te kill him ; I had te de it. '' These
terrible words he repeated several times,
and his frightened room-mate was seen
thrown into a paroxysm of fear by the ac
cidental discharge of the revolver. Barrett
then left the room, and as seen as day
light appeared informed the police of
what he had heard. Detectives were at
once detailed te investigate the case, and
having satisfied themselves that: th l.ni
found the right man, they arrested him.
