The Charge Agalukt Mr. Hinkla.
The following is the charge made
against Mr. Hinkle, as pub iahed iu
the Appeal of November 4th last:
My camt is Jnhn B. Newman, and
rny wife's maiden name was Olivia
Warfiold. We were married eleven
years ago the 21st of October last, and
have two lit le girls living, aged about
' 7 and 9 years. Heretofore my wife
and I bave had some trouble about
her extra vag-int'expf nditnre of money.
I ramonttrat d with her time and
again about i and she promistd me
- to be mere prudent, and all our differ
ences werj tualed, as I auppoasd.
When, on my return from my
regular trip last Si'urJay, I fouad mv
wife and children gone, I ascertained
that they bud gone to Springfield,
Mo., and etertod after them at ooe la
tbe deepest trouble. As I reached
that city and stepped off the cars
I met my wife and cbi'dreo,
ready to take the train for Kansas
City, where she expected ta meit a
Sister of Charity, whom she knew,
and bave our children placed in a con
vent at St. Cherle, Mo. I soon af
fect 9(1 a reconciliation with her, as she
said she had broken her promises in
regard to going into debt and wasting
money, and tnerefore made np her
mind to get beyond the reproaches
which ahe deseived, but that it was a
mere accident that she bad gone to
Springfield, and we ratnrned home,
arriving here at rj o'clock o.m. Tues
day morning. After dinner that day
my wife was ta king over our affairs
and trying to effect a permanent re
conciliation, as I loved my wife very
dearly and tympath:ad with htr,
when she told me freely and ef her
own accord that the money matters
was not all the trnblt); that on lat
Wednecday n'ght she bad heard the
Rev. J. J. Porter pieach at tbe Firet
Baptist Church and bad been so
deeply ronvieted of ber awful ein that
it made her bo miserable cbe had Had
from home, and, upon my prareir gner
for a full con'tsdon, aiie s'atedthat
Mr. Hinkle bad thrown his arms
around her and kissed her, making
ench advances as to sicura ber ruin iu
the tpring of last yar while entertain
ing him at a friend's house in the par
lor, her fiend being sick, and that the
ciime bad bern repra'ed four times.
All. tbe above statements 'were re
peated and ronfrgted to in the pr;s
ecce of peveral wi newos at the house
of Mr. D. W. Newman that night,
where abe had aor.e with her children
when their futber had nent fcr them;
and she further eaid that no blame
could be attached to Mr. Newman, ta
he had always been a good and loud
husband to her.
A SHOOTING AFFAIR
Bscaase of th!a confession Mr. New
man, on the 2d of November, shot at
and slightly wonnded Mr. Hinkle.
Our special from Jackaon on the 3d
aid: On teeing Mr. Hinkle walking
eastward on Baltimore street, south of
A1 . I 3 . J -f li
no couriuouee era towara me xng)i
House, he started la pursuit, but same
one cried out to Mr. Hinkla to run,
which, on looking up and seeing Mr.
Newman, be did, taming down the al
ley near Gen. Campbell's cffic aid
tanning southward, with Mr. Newman
in hot pursuit and firing from his re
volver three shots, one of which took
effect behind the right shoulder. Mr.
Hinkle, however, succeeded in reach
ing the jail, and rushing io, begged
the protection of Mrs. Person, the
Sheriff's wife. Tbe crowd had lost all
interest in tbe election for tbe time
and was running aont in a etite of
peat excitement. Policeman Uinton
lieing on the ground, demanded Mr.
Newman's surrender, which in his ter
rible excitement he at flrt refused,
but being assured that be was sur
rounded by friends he gave un the pis
tol, a thirty-eight caliber Smith A
Wesson, and surrendered, giving bond
before Justice B. F. Howard in the
turn of tlOOJ. Ha could have given
4100,000 as easily. After listening to
ths various rumors as to Mr. Hlnkle's
part in this terrible aflair we coll the
following, which represents his state
ment in brief:
th mvr. mx. hinkle's statkmiitt. '
Mr. Hinkle, on being interviewed
by the correspondent of the Ami!,
immediately after the shooting, raid:
"Last Friday before my return from
Chicago, Mrs. Newman sent a note to
my house, statirg that she was about
to leave her husband and wanted $50
or 75 to get away on, and asking tbat
the money be left at the Women's
Excbangs. On Saturday morning she
called at my residence and loit a mes
sage tbat she would Bend a nrts
through the piatoffiee, which WiB
done. This last note snid ehe wonlJ
be in Memphis and her addrede No.
18 Burgess street I paid r:o attention
to these note?, thinking it nil thn re
sult of a dia ased mind, as I had been
gui'tv nf na indiscretion whatever.
Today I had been nq, vl itirnar. and on
my rotu'n from Mr. B(E prat's, I
uner the Bight Lt6a.3 when I
heard vo'ces calling out for me
td ran. Oa lookirg ap I saw Mr.
Newman coming toward me with a
drawn pLtol, anil eeting him arap it
t m. I ran down tbe alley Test of
the Brigot House and teard three
s'jolg fl'ed, tbe sfond of wbictl struck
my right sboulder. I remained at the
jail uotil Drs. Cona and Herron
dressed mv wound, which w?a pro
nounced a fl sh wannd aod net danger
ous. The whole affair is a mys'ery to
me, as I had noticed no wrong in Mr.
Nenman and regsrdad her as a gocd
and trne wiff, and hai been on good
terms wl h Mr. Newman.
Mr. Hink! is about 35 revs old.

was received here la'e laft night of
the burning of tbe steamer B adifch
Johneon, used as a boarding house at
Jecksoo, on the Big Bund river,
eleven miles above kiobile, Wednes
day night. There is no telegraph line
to that point, 'the Johtsiu was ly
ing with her nice ia tbe bnk and a
gaog plauk out. A. C. Yeall.one of
the bosses, gave tbe followicg descrip
tion of the fire: "I had j rst g-ne ti
bed w hen I htard the cry of fire. I
got iao mv pan's and seised
my ether tSeits and lushed oat
into the cabin. There had been
a party of men ont tuere playing
cprds end tbey taw emnke rising.
When I came into the cabin the tire
seemed to be in tbe stateroom aft of
the pantry on the port aide, and tbe
men who had been piaying curds were
standing there at tha door looking in
attheflie. They seemed like they
were dazad and did not know what to
do. They bad sboute l fi'e, but there
they stood Blaring at it. 1 hallowed,
"For God's sake, what are you
standing there fori Wake tbe men
up and let us get out of
here." Thtra was ai eld man,
an Alabam an, in tbe room next to
mine. I don't know his name. He
was asleep when I stent to bed, f jr I
heard him snoring- Whether I got
him awake or not I don't know. I
hammered and pounded with all my
might. You see the smoke was al
ready filling the cabin and the men
werei miming around like mad, I
hardly know what happened. 1 ran
forward through the cabin and my
eyts and mouth g )t bo full of smoke
that 1 did not know where I was
going. The negroes were mostly
lodged on the lower deck, lliey
all came running forward about
the rame time we got thers. The ves
sel burned very fast, and was a solid
mass of flames in a moment When I
had reached the bank I turned around
and saw tbe pilot house and texas IM
in with the nagroes. They fled up the
bank in a mob and imbed to the
woods where they huddled like sheep,
and could not be persuaded to come
down ti the bank. They knew that
some of their number were lost in the
burning boat, and tbey were seeming
ly superstitious about it They did
not want to go near tbe place, so
the boat became a macs of fl trues
and burned for about half an
hour when she sank. As soon as I
got ashore there was a report thit
there were men in the water. Skiffs
wera manned and cent to their rescue.
They picked up Mr Dalv, one of the
Ca'son men. William Neat, an En
glisLman in one of tbe Bkilh, had two
negroes right near him, br.t they s;nt
out of Bight William Dowhr.g, tbe
cook, who received slight burns on
the face and hand;, found a white
man lying in a stateroom door.
Dan HihhouEe came up and
the two dragged tbe man, supposed
ti be MrElruy, cut on the boiler
deck. ' The man wrs unconscious
from the efiects of smoke. Just then
the fl imes bnrst out on the side, and
D.r.ing jumped on tbo railing to cave
his life, liillhonee, however, said he
heard a man groaning just inside the
cabio, !nd be wentbick t) reECUe the
man. liu never came out again and
he was not tern alive after that,
and it is believed he was nacrificad iu
the noble attempt to savo another
There is no tolling just how many
lost their lives in the fire. Some say
that ton others are missing, but all
tbat I know of are the two negroes,
Lewis Adams and Benjimin Bush,
who were drowned, and two white
men missing. I think two other white
men were burned with the boat, and
there must have been others, for I
don't tbiak tbey had a chauce to be
wakened and then escape, for it was
all I could do, with the smartest kind
of running,' to get oat alive, bad
the fire broken out one hour later,
when all the men would have
been in bed, none of us would have
eecaped. As to the crlgln of the fire I
know nothing. The cook says the
boys told him before he went to sleep
that the fires in the galley were all
ont and everything safe. The Bradieh
Johnson was built In tbe West for
what is called the Louisiana lower
coest trade, that is, from New Orleans
down to the passes of the Mississippi.
Capt. J. Slone brought her hers and
ran her on tbe Alabama and its
tributaries for several years, until it
was sold at Marshal sale. The pur
chaser was Capt U. C. Baldwin, who
kept her in the urns trade. After his
death Mr. Rittanhouie Moore bought
her. Two years ago she - was con
demned and went ont of commission.

published hitherto ia tbe newepipers.
Be testified that Lloyd pulled the
spikes, aided by Newport, while Ham
ilton, Yassen and others stood guard.
Varsen testified that he went to the
Knights ot Labor Ha 1 In Kansas City,
Mo., on the night of April 25ih. A
dosan ethers dropped iu during the
evening to get any news of the strike.
Absnt 11 o clock wit new went back a
second time to the ball. Hamilton
was dieplaying himself to the party in
a disguise oi w g and clothes. Lloyd
rail to the witness: "Are joa going
with ns tonight ?''
Witness asked, "Where t" L'oyd
replied, "Never mind where; come
aLd go with ns."
Soon after all went down and took a
drink: then eight cf the party Ham
ilton, Lloyd, Newpoit Grter, L-ary,
Biggs, Varnor and the witnf is, set cut
together. The party separated into
two (quads aid repaired to the river
rroBcing over the Sixth str.-et bridge,
Hamilton wearing biidiatuise. When
they ranched the enrve on the railroad
track at about 2 o'clock they halted
and Lloyd bgan to pull ap the spikes.
Witness wanted them to go further
along if tbey must do the job. He
object d to pulling tbe spikes on tbe
corve fcr fear it would kill ths whole
crow on the train. Lloyd said: "Damn
them, I want to kill t:ie whole crew."
Hamilton and Varsen then went fur
ther north aod mounted guard and
Geera and Leery went in the other di
rection. Rggs aud Varner in the
meantime had deserted them. Sev
eral shots were fired at a pat-sing
train from tbe bluff above just before
the party sat to work, and wttneea
and Hamilton wanted to give tbe
thing np, but Lloyd said it should go
through. While witness and Hamil
ton were standing guard Lloyd ctme
np and raid the thing was done. New
port then threw the crowbar into the
rivor and the party scattered for home
and witness went to bod. Witness
saw Hamilton a day or two afterward,
and the latter said: "Kwp quiet;
tnere are lots of Pinkerton men
Tbe crops examination did not shake
Vassen's testimony. His appearance
give the impression that he had been
led into the plot rather againat his
will, and had now made np his mind
to tell the whole story jastasit oc
curred. He was questioned somewhat as to
any possible forekoowledge of the
crime by the members of the lodge in
general, but nothing was elicited
showing that , any per ons were
parties to it except tbose already
named. The testimony, however, in
dicates by inference tbat ths matter
had bean talked aout by those who
had been in the hall on the night in
Hamilton's wife and little child ara
in attendance at court, and the latter
tat upon its father's knee during the

BoeTOff, Mass , December 30. In
tbe Andorer heresy trial this morning
the Rev. Mr. Bla'e Ml, one of the four
a-cusd'a, withdrew hU nama Irm the
complointB, Biying tiiat be wai vatis
fled with Prof. Smyth's r-ply. When
tbe trial was reeuiimitbe Hon. Ciiarlei
Tlieodnre Rasseil concluded l is ad-(ire.-s
for the rpondents. Kx Gov.
Gas ou followed fr the respondents.
The rpeaker dwdU on the fact that ths
prosecution had roatenVtd itfelf with
disuonnecttd extricts from the de
fendant's writings, but had failed to
bring iu tbe evidence oi any ot bia
nnpils or of any one who hai beard
him preach, sad touched upon tbe
grand work baing done by tbe da
ftrndant. This doted the argument
for the defeuse. President Keelye
slated that it was understood that the'
conop'ainir.ts would conclude at about
noon on Friday. Prof. Dwight said
tbat tha accused professors would be
willing, ef er having a very few min
utes in which to slate their cases, to
ratt on the arguments already nude.
Then Ptsident Hee'ye said tha.
if possible the other cases
would be taken up Friday
alterooon. - If not then, on Monday at
10 a.m. Judge Asa French then
opened ths argument for tbo prosecu
tion and was followed by the Rev. J.
W. Wellman. Mr. Well man specified
ths charges against Prof, Smyth In
detail. We do not believe," he said,
"tbat a man can subscribe to the An
dover creed and yet believe tbat the
Bible is not wholly inspired. That
Prof, r-'myth does so balieve wo have
abundant proof in his writings. From
these writings it is plain that he holds
a new ilea of the Bible and of tbe
word of God, and one tbat la not roc
ogn'sed in the creed ot the OVo'eir...
ticial or of any church." h Well
man claimed that the new theology
made ont inspiration to bave bfeen In
tbe Bible writer?, but not in their
writings, so that as those men were
oftan in error and somttimes in sin,
religious writings of the game men.
according to the logical cone usiona of
the new teacbirg, might had to ernr,
