witnesses were iworn, and tbero can bu no

who did the terrible deed. One witness
testified to having seen Campbell going

the ratal blow struck, but could not swear
positively that Campbell was the man win
did it. It Is said Campbell acknowledges
having committed the crime, and says be Is

near the comer o! Twelfth street and Com

ly eighteen years o I ago. The boy asked
the lather lor some money, how much we do
not know, but It must have been a consider
