BLOODY BATTLE WAGED.

sons. Will and Joe, and Mrs Petty
john drove over to Butler's place,
after getting three guns and
several pistols, as he thought
that Butler would probably at
tempt to kill him when he went
to get the cows.
When he arrived at Butler's
place he found there was no one
there and he and his sons drove
the cows to his place only a short
distance from where they were
He was just about to relate how
the shooting occurred when the
wound in his side commenced to
pain him terribly and \he doctors
caused all visitors to ' vacate the
room in order that the patient
should not be excited.
Mrs. Pettyjohn was seen a
little later and she stated that
Butler had fired on them before
they could stop the drag and get
lout, that when they first saw him
I he was standing behind a tree
j with his gun in his hand ready to
j fire when they had passed by.
She also stated they did not go
over to Hamburg to have any
trouble with Butler, but went
there simply to get their cows, and
went armed because they knew
tha) he would try to kill Mr.
Pettyjohn when he learned of
Mrs. Pettyjohn was very cool
and collected while talking about
the affair and expressed no regrets
over what had occurred.
MR. BUTLER SEEN.
Later iu the afternoon Mr. But
ler was called upon and seemed to
be suffering very little from his
several wounds, and consented to
give his side of the affair.
He said that he and Pettyjohu
had been good friends up to a
short time ago, when they had
some trouble over a man whom
Pettyjohn had hired, when he
knew that he was under contract
to work for him (Butler) that he
had called Pettyjohn a liar,
but that did not have any
thing to do with yesterday's
He said that yesterday morning
he found twenty-eight of Petty
john's cows in his oat patch and
that he had the right to pen them
and demand pa}rment for the
damages they had done, so he had
all of the cows driven into his
lot and notified the owner of
out that Mrs. Getsen, his .sister,
was pasturing the cows for Petty
john, and that he sent her word
as she was responsible for the
damage they had done he would
not charge ber anything, and that
if she sent for the cows she would
have no trouble in getting them.
He stated that in the meantime
Pettyjohn, his two sons and about
five other men came over to his
place while he was away armed to
the teeth with pistols and guns
and took the cows without saying
a word to anyone.
He said that he was then told
that Pettyjohn and his crowd
were out gunning for him and
that they had said they were going
to kill him on sight.
Upon learning this, he said that
he armed himself in case they
would try to carry out their threat
and when he went down to
Shinall's saloon he had no idea
they were going to drive by in a
short time. He stated that he did
not see the Pettyjohn crowd until
they were getting out of the drag,
but that when he saw they were in
for a fight he waited until they
were all on the ground and then
he fired the first shot before Petty
john could fire himself.
He said that he was very parti
cular in waiting for Mrs. Pettyjohn
to get out of the way and did not
fire until he knew that she was
out of the range of his bullets;
that he never shot at the youngest
boy, but paid attention to the old
man and Will.
He stated that he [would not
have had the trouble with Petty
john but that he (Pettyjohn) had
been looking for him all day for ,
the purpose of shooting him down ?
and when he shot Pettyjohn he (
considered that he did just exactly ]
svhat any other man would have .
done under similar circumstances. '
Mr. Butler was also very cool ?
and calm over the shooting and ^

ilongwith him in peace knowing \
Amt he was a sort of a ruffian and ?
arow-beat and bulldozer. So a 1
few days ago when I had this trou- 1
3le over thorp, there were twenty 1
)dd of my cows let loose out of i
Mr. Getzen's pasture where I was
keeping them in pasture. In the
meantime I employed a mon by
the name of James Ford. I. did not
know that he had ever seen Butler,
or that Butler had ever seen him.
I knew nothing of it at all. Tom
Butler came up to where I was,
and abused this young man foi
everything he could think of ex

So a few days ago I got a?elephone
message. I do not know fron
whom but it was from Hamburg
stating that Tom Butler, hac
twenty-two of my cowf, and hac
them penned up. I carne to the
conclusion immediately that Ton:
Butler had them turned out him
self, and I felt so exaspated that
he should attempt to extort monev

some double-barrel shotguns with
the intention to take the cows b}

was a barbed wire. Jim Ford. Mr
Adams, and myself and Will Petty

came to the conclusion that thi
cows had been turned out; tha
they did not get out on their owi
hook, but had been turned out. S<
we carried the cows up into my lot
Mr. Adams said that Tom Butte]
and Gardner would certainly com<
up there and take them back by
force, so we staid up there for som<
time after dinner. As Butler anc
Gardner did not come,we started
back home, myself and my wife
and Will Pettyjohn, we all in the
buggy. We immediately saw Ton
Butler run behind a large tree
there in front of the barroom. We
intended to turn round and Jgc
back. But just about that time
Will jumped out of the buggj
and Tom Butler shot at him- Anc
then I jumped out. I stood oui
there in the middle of the ground
and shot at him, and he
was behind the tree. And finally

thought we had just as well fight it

I should have mentioned
another thing. I was out there one
day buying some chickens. Har
rison Butler hailed "me and said
he wanted to thank me for some
thoroughbread eggs I had given
him-Leghorns. While Mr. Har
rison Butler was talking to me,
Tom Butler came up-him and
Mr. Doolittle was in a buggy to
gether-and Tom Butler said,
.''Mr. Pettyjohn, I want to see
you a minute. I want to tell
you that if you hired Jim Ford I
am going to sue you and make it
hot for you." I said. Mr. Butler
there is nothing to prevent you if
want to sue. Go on it's all right."
Then I said to Mr Butler, -I do
not want to have any difficulty

slavery, and I am certainly not in
favor of white slavery. He said

referring to me, of course.
I said, "Mr Butler, I will have
you arrested for that. It is not
necessary for you to call a man of
my age a liar." He said, You
would not dare to have me arrested
sir," shaking his finger in my
face. I said, "You hold still and
I will show you thai; I will have
you arrested." I came in the house,
and going to a bell-boy, I told him
to go out and get an officer. I
told the officer Mr. Butler, had
called a me liar andi wanted him
arrested. Mr. Butler said he did not

fie did not hire Jim Ford by the

Union Mutual Life Insurance Company,
OIF1 PORTLAND, UVEJLUtsTE.
Its Policies are the Most Liberal Now Offered
to the Public.
Is the only existing Company whose policies are, or can be subject to the
MAINE NON-FORFEITURE LAW.
! WHAT IT IS.
The Maine Non-Forfeiture law protects policies from forfeiture
by reason of default of payment of premiums. It provides that, after
three years' premiums have been paid, failure to pay any subsequent
premiums shall not forfeit a policy, but it shall continue in force for
its full amount until the reserve (less a small surrender charge) upon
the policv is exhausted.
The reserve is a sum made up of portions of each and every pre
mium paid upon a policy in anticipation of its maturity. Beginning
with a small portion of the first premium, it is increased each year by
the addition of each subsequent premium grows larger year by
year, until, at maturity, it exactly equals thv. faca of the policv. When
a policy is discontinued therefore, there is in the hands of the Com
pany a reservo, greater or less, according to the character and age of
the policy. Instead of permilting the Company, upon non-payment
of premium, to confiscate this reserve, the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law
requires the Company to continue the policy in force until the policy
holder receives an equivalent for it. in extended insurance.
How IT WORKS.
If a person, aged 35, pays three years' premiums upon a twenty
pavment Life policy and then discontinues payment, the policy wil
be'eontinued 4 years and 257 days longer; if he pays five premiums,
and then disco'.'- ..ues, the insurance will continue 7 years and 357
If tbV .cy is a twenty year endowment, same age, three years'
payment' .A give an extension of 8 years and 150days; five year '
paymen years, 300 days. If the policy is a 15 Year Endowment,
($1,000) same age, three years' payments will secure insurance to the
end of the endowment period and $13.68 in cash if insured lives till
that time, and in like manner ten years' payments secures insurance
for the full 15 vears and $592.17 in cash.
These extensions vary with the age of the insured, the class of
?pvnuy, in jia.ie auu uajrp, -mi cauii txtrmvoY- Ot' paymeui?,' HO*~thl&TrTBe"
policy-holder knows at a glance exactly wljat he is entitled to if he
discontinues his payments at any time.
What it Has Done.
The Company Has Paid over Two Hundred Death Claims, in con
sequence of this law, aggregating in sums insured more than Four
Hundred Thousand Dollars.
In every case there had been a default in the payment of pre
mium,* and, except for this law, the policies would have been of little
or no value. Instead of this, the insurance in each case was extended
to the time of death, and the Company was required to pay to the
beneficiaries under the policies the sum of $418,335.77.
fbi Vie o? lie Lav Extensions as Cowed
WTTH iPATD-TTIP VAXJTTES.
It is the custom of many companies to provide in their policies
that, upon discontinuance of payment of Premium., paid-up policies
will be given, without the option of extension. This was the practice
of the Union Mutual before the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law was en
acted, but it now Substitutes for paid-up values the more advantage
ous plan of extended insurance. The objection to the paid-up system
is that the amount of paid-up insurance which is given upon the dis
continuance of payments upon a policy, unless it has been in force a
great many years, is insignificant, and of little or no value as protec
tion ; and it leaves the insured who ceases payment without adequate
insurance at the very time he needs it the most.
The great advantage of the extended insurance afforded by the
Maine Law over the most liberal paid-up system is strikingly shown by
the following comparison, and it will be observed that the paid-up
value is insignificant in comparison with the amount actually paid by
the Union Mutual. The result of two hundred and twelve policies
If the ins?red had received paid-up policies instead of ex
tended! insurance, the Company would have had to
pay in Settlement of the claims only. $98,197.50
Whereas, inrfact, it did pay under the Maine Law, $418,344.77
Making a difference in favor of the beneficiaries under Two
Hundred and Twelve policiei of $320,147.28
The policies are free from a# restrictions, and incontestible after
