The Rev. Mr. Gilbert's sermon, "A
Plain Picture of Cairo Life," preached in
the Church of the Redeemer on Sunday
uight, has created quite n sensation
among the good people of this city, and
has opened tho eyes of many of our un

sermon was not founded on hearsay, us

was on hand when the boat landed nt the

until lurlhcr proof could he obtained,
when Clark asked to be taken to the St.

led Smith to believe there was something

turbances, which were raised by parties
who boarded thu train at stations be

There was no difficulty, however, during
the earlier part of the day, and u merry'
time was experienced by all. About the
time, however, the train was to start, two

OfgivlBt hl n tH! on the charge of
murder. 'The trial" promises to bo one of
much interest, as the friends ot Eschbach,
though more than a year has passed
away since the deed was commit
ted, seem anxious that Gupton shall suf
fer to the full extent of the law for the
crime.! To those ot our read
ers who nre not acquainted with tho cir
cumstances ot tho deed, it may prove of
interest to give a synopsis ol the occur
Mr. Eschbach had been to Villa Ridge
to attend the funeral of Herman Blom's
child, nnd when the train returned to the
city, went directly rrom the train to his
barber shop, where he commenced to put
things to rights and clean up so that he
would he ready Tor work when ho went
to the shop on Monday morning. Short
ly after, probably not more than live
minutes after Mr. Kschbach opened his
shop doors, BUI Gupton, a steamboat
pilot, and a man oi notoriously bad char
acter, entered the shop. Just whatoc
currcd after Guptou went into tho shop Is
not known, but he had been there but a
very few minutes when people who were
la thu vicinity of the shop heard two shots
llred, and u moment after saw Guptou
backlu g out of the shop door, uid jiht as
he stepicd out.-ide he was seen to tire the
third time, the ball striking the glass In
the door, which Eschbach was trying to
close. Then pushing the door open,
Gupton tired the fourth shot, pointing
his pistol Into the shop. lu a few
seconds after Eschbach came out
of the shop, and said to some men near
by, "There is the man who shot me!
Catch him ! eatcli him !" Mr. Al. Height
man, bartender at Lane's saloon, came
out ol the saloon just ns the last shot was
llred, and seeing what was going on, ran
up to Gupton and attempted to take the
pistol from him. Gupton resisted, and
Ileightman and he had a tussel, in which
Helghtmau succeeded in getting the re
volver, lsy this time quite u crowd
had gathered about thu corner,
and Officer John Hogan coming
up, took Guptou in charge and took him
to the city jail. After Eschbach came out
of tho house, he walked down the side
walk as far as Cris. Anther's meat shop,
several times ?ajiug, "There Is the man
who shot tne! Catch him ! catch him !"
He then returned to .the shop and lay
down. A number of his friends gathered
around him, and seeing he was badly
hurt, sent for Dr. Wardner who arrived
in a few minutes, nnd nt once adminis
tered to the wounded man's wants, but
he died in half an hour afterwards.

Circuit Court, special term, for the pur.

toii murder case, commenced, this fore

T. Mnegar and C. N. Dnmoron, county
attorney for Johnson county, will con

The prisoner (Gupton) was brought to
this place by Deputy Sheriff John Cain,
Dili morning, and was afbncc turned
over to tho keeping of Sheriff Jas. H.
Having learned thai Mrs. Gupton,
mother of thu pihoncr, had arrived lu
town, your correspondent this morning
called upon her lu the hope of learning
something of (he history of thu unfortu
nate man. She is a plain looking old ludy,
and evidently much distressed on her
sou's account. Tho following Is a brief
sketch of the early history of thu prisoner:
William R. Gupton was born In Mont
gomery county, Tennessee, lu tho year
18i.'J, und Is consequently 33 years of
age. At tlic age ot one year ins parents
moved to Smlthlaud, Kentucky.
Gupton wa-j very sickly un
til sixteen years of nge, the
physicians pronouncing his disease con
sumption. At about Uils age he concluded
to go " on the river," and learn to be n
pilot, but the old lady could not remem
ber tho name of the boat 011 which he
entered his apprenticeship. At the ex
explratlon of his time, he was granted a
pilot's license, and thciico lorward up
to the time of the shooting of Eschbach,
was almost constantly employed. Since
tho death of her husband aud father of the
prisoner, William has not only been the
sole support of his mother, three sisters
and two brothers, but also of his grand
mother and her two children. She avers
that he was always u kind and affection
ttteson.and that if hu wits dissipated,
he was very successful in keeping it
lVom her knowledge. The old lady suf
fers great anguish anil pain because of
the terrible predicament in which she
tluds him. Shu is now, and has been
for the last eighteen years, a member
of the Methodist Church. The only ed
ucation William ever had he
received nt his mother's hands
Up to this hour hut two jurymen have
been obtained, and thu Indications are
that it will be Wednesday morning lc-
toro taking evidence will commence
Most of the witnesees for the prosecution
nre here, though 0110 or two Important
ones are yet to arrive. Lkx.
