THE STATE VS. A. C. PIESTER.
The exomination of Special Deputy Sheriff
A. C. Piester, of Ljon countv, lor the kill
ing of John Fuqna, on the 25th of October
last, at the house of Mr. Windsor, six miles
south of Garden Plain, took place before
Justice Hobhs yesterday.
Owing to the nature ol inc case, as wen as
to the fact that tho preliminary elimination
was conducted bv Mr. Vangeeson, Justice
Hobbs thought itadviablc to associate him
with himself in this case.
Mr. Frank Dale represented the state and
Judgo J. J. Buck conducted the defense. A
general summary of the case upon the evi
dence adduced is about as follows:
The two deputy sheriffs, Mr. Peister and
Mr, Kohb, of Lyon county, had information
that Fuqua was somewhere about Mr. Wind
sor's place, engaged tho service of
Mr. Alexander Coffee, a livery man
of Checnev, who sometimes acts as a
deputy to "jhcriff Fisher, to take his team
and go with them to Mr. Windsor's house.
Thev arrived there about noon and inquired
for ilr. Windsor; that gentlemen being ab
sent in the territory, they inquired of Mr.
DeCoc, who lhes 'with "Mr. Windsor, con
cerning the man who took care of the stock.
Thev next inquired if they could get dinner
and'being answered in the affirmative they
had their team put up and they soon went
into the house. Fuqua sat at tho sametable
with them at dinner and Mr. Coffee en
gaged him in conversation. It was while at
dinner that they became aware that he was
the man they were after. At the conclusion
j( the meal the officers went out and while
out Mrf. DcCoe told Fuqua that they were
after some oac who had stolen a horse. Mr.
Piester soon returned to the house, and it
eems that both him and Fuqua arrived when
the other men were hitching up the team at
;he same time. It was previously arranged
between Mr. Hobb and Mr. Piester that they
should both draw their weapons on raqua
it the same time; this they aid, being about
icn feet fi-orn him. Mr! Pie-tor, without
Having in any way indicated to the man that
he was acting in the cupieitv of an officer,
leveled his revolver at his head, and said:
Holdup! lp! Up!" and almost iminedi
itrly after the third "up," he fired, the ball
-nterlng the bridge of the nose and causing
ilinost instant death. Any onq who heard
'he evidence could hardly fail to bo im-,ro-scd
with the idea that the shooting, ju-t
it that time, was not only altogether too
hasty, but absolutely unnecessary. There
ere four men there against one, and
.wo of thec men had him covered
with their revolvers, and could havo shot
hiin down as soon us they saw him make a
novo for his revolver. There was no evi
Ience produced showing that the man made
tny motion to get his revolver. Two wit
nesses swore that ho was in the act of hold
ing up one of his hand', tho other being by
After carefully examining the situation
in the light ot tho evidence, it would
appear that the man was shot before he
could realize the situation and obey the
command to throw up, especially if he was
not aware that the officers were authorized
to arrest him. Mr. Piester did not give
him any intimation that lie had any author
ty to arrast him.
There is no doubt thai Fuqua was a horse
thief and a bad character; he is not entitled
to any sympathy and he got none; never
theless wt) believe any impartial listener
would not he-itate lo'say that the killing
In Fuqua's case it might be argued ttiat
it was a benefit to society to put linn out of
the way, notwithstanding that such was the
case, such nn officer wonld be a dangerous
one in other cases.
At first Mr. Dale had no intention to ar
gue the causo at all and did very little to
draw any statement from witnesses that
would be'likcly to criminate the defendant,
but, as he stated, after due consideration In:
believed that the majesty of thol.iw had
been trampled, he considered it his duty to
insist that the defendant bo held to answer
the chargo of manslaughter in th'j second
degree. He said if he could consult bis own
wish in the matter, he would say to this de
fendant, go; but he felt that a crimo has
been commiteed and he would insist that
the defendant should have a higher vindica
tion than this court oould give liiin if ho was
found not guilty, by a jury. The court so
looked at the ca'se and Mr. Piester was held
in the sum of S.100, to answer tho chargo of
manslaughter in the second degreo at the
next term of the district court. Bail was

Wednesday to Saturday Morning, Nov. 15,
We find it impossible, even with our large force of
employees, to mark and get in stock the immense quan
tities of goods that have arrived for our special sale ad
vertised for Wednesday morning. We have therefore
decided to postpone this sale until Saturday morning.
Nov. 15th, and, as the goods crowd and pile in upon us,
we realise it will be impossible for us to do more than
indicate the great reductions at which these recent pur
chases have been made.
