KILLED ABOUT A CHEW OP PLl'Q
The Murderer Arrested and Jailed
by the Police He Makes a
The lather tough locality lying just
eouth of Poplar street, on Front, was
the scene, at a little after 4 o'clock yes
terday alternoon, of a crime bmtal
and bloody in the last drgree. The
place ia usually haunted by laborers,
lough duty and unwashed, a man
with a coat on his back being a rarity.
They ait about oa old barrels and
boxes in front of tbe nnmeroos saloons
in the earlier hours of tbe day, retreat
ing within when the sun begins to
pour its warm, hor iintal beams full
into the low doarways. Mean whisky,
stale beer, greasy cards and profanity
all do their share toward making tbat
portion oi the street a breeding place
for lawlessness, and it has given blith
to mere than one
At tbe hour montioned there were
few persons to be seen on tbe street
At tbe boarding house on Poplar attest
two or three aen, who hsppened to
be standing In tbe doorway, attracted
by a loud grcan of agony, saw a man
standing in front of G. Djndero's
saloon, half a block soutu, striae an
other over the head several times with
a heavy mallet and as he fell to the
ground kick him eavagely two or tbres
timer. Tbe alarm waa immediately
given, a crowd rapidly collected and
the man with the mallet, who seemed
to have no desire to escape, was easily
captured by the police. His victim
lay motionless in a pool of blood, a
gaping wound in tbe back of his htai,
a little lo one side. He died almost
without a struggle. Both men were
identified without difficulty. The
prisoner, William Bath, is about 38
veers of age, medium height, with a
of countenance, and has been era
ployed ia various positions on the
river. He has no family. Ilia victim.
John Kelly, was a railroad hand, and
wss also unmarnea. ue wss aooui
35 vesta of age and well built
The most important witness lor tne
State is a man named John Keliey, a
laborer, and astinnger In the city.
He sys he waa Bitting ic tne saioon
when Bath came in. Kelly, who had
entered sbottly before, asked hbn for
a chew of tobacco, and they had some
words about It. Kelly anally walking
out. . Bth aei.)d a heavy mallet
used lo knock the bungs from beer
kegs, and followed bim, holding the
mallet behind him. As he reached
HAIHKD TBI MALLIT
and knocked him down without a
word. A negro, whose name wss not
learned, Btated that he was standing
In the doorway of the saloon and saw
Keliv walk out and stand upon the
pavement, with his back to the dior.
Bath followed, and, Deiore ne couiu
tarn, bit bim with a msl:ot In the
back of tbe head several times in
rapid succession, afterwards kicking
bim. Bath waa seen by an Appbal
reporter at the Station House im-
mediately aiier me arrest. u
piratlon stood out in beads upon his
forehead and be was visibly excited,
but did not seem to fully toa'iss
tbe desperateneas ot his situation. He
talked freely aDOUt tne aaair, uociar-
ing that he had no concealment to
about making out a case of self de
fense. "I'll tell you how it was," he
said, going rapidly back to tbe corner
of his cell and taking np bla coat from
tbe floor. "I wont down to the river
this morning and asked one ot the bar
keepers for acnewoi looacco. u
threw me a whole plug," lifting a
quarter-pound piece from one of the
nnnanuL "remarauiK mat wo
