the night of tho murder, on a delayed
train of cars. The doors of tho etoro
were closed and lastened. We stepped
upon the porch of the residence, and
stood, perhaps, on t''o very spot where
tho assa-'-iii stood when he tired the fatal
shot. The wire screen had disappeared,
no doubt laid away to act 6ome day ad a
mute witness against the murderer; tho
esish had been lowered, and the room
was bare of furniture, nnd nothing re
mained to denote former occupancy ex
cept a new parlor slovo in the opposite
part of tin room.
"Ho was killed in this room i" I nsked.
"Right on that spot," said Roberts,
pointing lo a visible speck on tho lloor.
It was nu uuly night, a heavy storm

was out into the settlcmcntB where the
vendetta was born.
at tin: HOTEL,
kept by Charles Gager, I met n young
man whose personnels and manners de
noted city lite. He was preparing to
leave Cartervllle owing to Implication in
acts Hint were obnoxious to the night-rider
who hover around that small, disa
greeable and scraggy place.
"Are you afraid to life out there ?" was
my question, in response to a short nar
rative as to the condition of things at
"No not In the day-time; but when
night comes on, a resident of Cartervllle
who has had any disagreement with any
of thece fellows, leels a little lonesome,
and sleeps uncomfortably. It has been
demonstrated that they mean business.
A dark night, a good gun, and a shadow
of an enemy to slioot at, and murder is
committed unless a special 1'rovldenc;
protects the intended victim.''
The hotel-kccpvr, a good-natured Ger
man, said that he was the first man who
reached SInity after he received the fatal
tliot. He found him in a rocking chair,
dead : blood covered his body, his head
was thrown back, hands rested upon his
knees, and a ghastly wound was visible
in his breast.
"It was a fearful sight. Mr. Ocelot," re
marked .Mr. Gager. tlio landlord.
"Do you think the concussion put out
"No. sir: the lamp was too far away."
"What about the man Stanley?"
Here a tall, dark-featured Individual,
wearing a red neck tie. beaver hat, and
box-toed bootti, joined in the conversa

arreted find made to tell all about it."
"Vou suspicion Mr. Stanley?" I said.
"Suspicion him? I seldom ever ewtar
but d n him, he should liave been

all about it. He has a bad record a d d

OS hCNDAY EVENING
I visited, in company with Mr. ItobarU,
iii old resident ot Wllllamcon county,
living between Carbondale andMurphys
Ijoro. After a xeneral conviT-ation tut to
his crops, I remarked :
"Lively times in .Iackon and Wllllara
"Very unfortunate. Knew both Slsney
and Spencc. Clever men. Expwt-il to
hear of the asaslnatlou or fclsney."
" Whv and by whom?"
A sinlle answered this bold question.
Now." I said, "you know a much
about thee troubles as any man In the
countv. I want a history of these
"Vou can t set them Irons me; I tell
you that right here. I have never been
mixed up in that feud, and will not run
the risk ol getting in it now."
We left this gentleman and drove to
Murphysboro. Gained no Information
there that was worthy of not', and In the
dusk of the evening returned to Carbon
dale. anJ that night, In the hotel heard
at least six dilferent versions of the ven
detta. nOAnDKl THE TRAIN",
destined to Marlon on Mond iy morning
eany. Among me pasengern lounu me
Hon. Win. .1. Allen. Jutfire Crawford,
and the .Messrs. Washburn. The train
moved away trom the depot at Carbon
dale and entered a country where the
soil appeared rich and productive. Oc-
catlonly we would dasti through little
strip of forest, suggestive of ambuscades
and deadly shots, for wc were fast get

or Into that precinct where they had be
come a terror. A short, nervous whis
tle, a lew jolts, and the train was In Car

the car where I sat. A gentleman seated
close to me tapped my shoulder, whls-
"Three ot them?''
"No: the tall ones. The other the lit

of that house," pointing out a dingy,
two-story frame. "He Is tho right bower

"Tenncseean all of them except

and once practiced medicine in this region

At that moment we reached Cralnv 1 e.

about tho shooting of blsney for a great

with bullets, and the next day they
planted him In Hurricane grave-yard."
The train was now under way for Ma
rlon, lt destination. Stepping over to
tho Hon. W. J, Allen, I entered Into n
conversation with him in reference to
court matters. Ho said that tho court at
Marion was an adjourned one, owing to a

public square, around which brick nnd
frame buildings have been erected.
Thence streets branch out In to tho sub

and underbrush margining the timber

THE BLUB TAIL FLY.
Here 1 commenced my duties of Inves
tigation and research, and before lotig
stumbled upon a character Mirion
popular druggist, Hundley, brother-ln-law
to Joh Allen, a wit, line Judge of
whiskey, a voluble Ulker. and a true typo
ol the western genius. Tall, portly, with
a rubicund face, rubious nose, a serio
comic expression of countenance, nu as
sumed swagger jmt to keep one Im
pressed aud you lime Hundlcv.
"You're one or them paper fellows, nre
you? Go light with us. You never
write the truth anyhow. Had a paier
here myself; Brown was Its editor.
Wanted to drink more wlilskv than my
self. Shut down on him. Imink now
as I ever get. There's Washburn you
know Washburn, the editor, don't you?
Good fellow, but not democratic sorter
grangy not the true blue democrat.
Made a speech down at Shake Rag
against old man Washburn, and tore
him all to pieces. Kelt iny way; saw It
took; then put thu blue-tail lly on him.
Going to start my paper again."
"What will you call It?" I asked.
"The Blue-Tail Fly,' sin don't want
any or your fmcy names. Won't sting,
but will breed a worm. Know Oberly,
John? Why, certainly. Met him at the
Anna convention. Asked Josh Allen,
before he was put in Humiliation for con
gress, how matters stood dowu in Alex
ander between film and Tom Wilson,
Judgn Green and Oberly. Josh said,
That' my atlalr ;' ulktushorl about it.
Knew that it wouldn't do to force a nom
ination, and have Oberly, with the Bulle
tin, after his tall. Watched Tom Wlhon
aud Oberly like a blue-tail lly. Hartzell
was withdrawn. Then Tom Wilson rose
up, with his rotund paunch shoved out.
and thumbs in his su-peiidcrr-, and looked
worse than a blue-tail lly. He just clap
ped Hartzell back into nomination, and I
saw that the blue-tail tly was after Josh,
and 1 took the liberty to withdraw Josh's
name trom before the convention.
Couldu't aflbrd to have him slaughtered
alter getting tho nomination. A fellow
trom Mound City, a lawyer Watklns
rose up in that convention and went for
me worse ban a blue-tall fly."
While this amusing conversation was
taking plncv mid I was about to broach the
vendetta subject, John Bulliner entered
the drug store. I w as introduced to him,
and the party adjourned to a little room
in the rear of the store, aud all took chol
era medicine. That's what Bulliner
called it. During conversation, I told
iixJliner my business and chatted undls
turbeu wan t,i, ,or tollu. tjm(.. u11(j.
ley had been out, ana on returning,
and overhearing a portion .or thu talk.
Seo tiere. Mr. Ocelot. It U snlil nonntn

and what I please don t 1, .tolm':'' ad
dressing milliner; "ami wimt nm tia.y
ifolnir to do about It?"
'oi are not afraid of bullets then,
Mr. Hundley?" l saiu.
We? No, sir! Tut the blue-tall lly
on them. Whv, Bulliner and the Hen
dersons, and the Sisucys, and Kussclh,
are doing no harm. It's only a matter of
time. Dog eat dog. They are killing
each other otVas fast as they can. Afraid
of them? No, sir!"
"Have you ever received any letter
threatening your lile, Mr. Iliiudly!" I
"I've got one in my sate mat you
would liko to have for the Timet. I'd
give a fltty-dollar bill to find the man
who wrote It."
As he spoke he commenced opening
the safe. Turning to Bulliner, he said :
"John, I want you to understand
there's no money in this safe."
Bulliner seemed to enjoy the Joke, and
Hundley produced n paper that had been
carefully folded and laid away for some
time. It was addressed to the " President
of the Legislature," signed " Many Citi
zens," aud dated at Marlon. The chl
rography was good, but the orthography
was lnirfect evidently Intended for
deception. It related to tho proposed
iu,uw appropriation lor tne capture ami
conviction of the assassins of Williamson
county, and alluded to a former S10.000
fraud through whiskey and soldiers'
bounties, and a steal of $1,000 from a
railroad. I asked who this bold letter re
ferred to, when Hundley, In a very Im
pressive tone of voice, said :
That letter means me, and I'd give a
flflVHlollar bill to tind tho man who wrote
U" Well, you did steal the $1,000," said
" Don't deny that ; but I'd give fifty
dollars to know who wrote that letter."
"Sure you didn't steal the $10,000?"
" No, Sir ! Perhaps the blue-tall fly took
it. Just tlfty dollars, gentlemen, lor the
author of that little scurrlllous, contempt
ible letter." , ,
We took more cholera medicine, theu
left tho Jovial Hundley to his iron safe, his
cholera medicine, and his blue-tall lly. I
received no vendetta news from the
EXCESSIVELY VOLUBLE HUNDLEY.
Tho next personage I met was a gentle
man who claimed Marlon as his birth
place. Vou know all the tircum.Mances re
lating to the troubles lu Williamson?"
' Yes ; know all the parties. There's
John Bulliner," pointing toward him;
' bis family has been persecuted. Now,
I will tell you something that may alter
your opinion In this affair If you have
rHEVIOL'fl TO THE VENDETTA
Old Isaac Vnncll, a man aged about 70
years, was taken trom his homo by about
eighteen or nineteen dlsgulwtl men, and
hung. The cause attributed for this ter
rible deed was 'harboring a woman who
had eeparated from her husband.' He
was first notllled by letter to discard the
woman, hut failed to do so. This was in
tho tall ofl872, betoro the commencement
of the vendetta. Six men were arrested
for tills rrlnio. nnd old Jim Henderson unit
a man named Stewart Culp were wit
nesses. Those tried were discharged by
tho lower courts. The United States
marshal arrested some ol the number and
took them to Springtlelil, and while the
trial tens pending Henderson and Culp
were both assassinatod. Henderson was
kllli'il Hki. tin u-iih shot in the tlclil. in

dead body home. These murder were
certnlnly the result ol' tho hanging of
Vnncll. Yet John Bulliner, who was In

killed, is generally considered guilty of
his murder. I for one do not believe It."
