tor the execution of TomJones, the
O'Hannon murderer, to-day were sudden
ly ended by the nrrival of the prisoner's
lawyer, II. i ',. Hellly, with a stay ofexe
ctttion. Up to a late hour last night the
prisoner had ltope that fie would receive
n temporary respite but when the packet
passed ami no news had come, he gave
up nil chance and begun to settle down
lor the worst. .The arrival of hit attorney
ust before the uinn was led out to the
scaflold was a complete surprise to every
body. John Grier. tin ex-denutv sherilT of
Gibson county, Tcnn.. nhd V.. A.
Holmes, arrived on tho packet this
morning and identlllcd Jones ns John
Wugster, who lelt that country live or
six years ago. They claim that he was
connected there with the perpetration of
numerous murages on lire and property
and that he wa compelled to leave un
der an Indictment lor the. murder of ti
negro. His father wn a litptlst minis
ter now dead. His mother and brothers'
are still living there. He did not attempt
to disprove or deny at all what they said
relating to the c' ange of his name.
In u final Interview with Jones just
before Mr. Ilellly's arrival, lie gave your
correspondent the names of thirteen
citizens who were in tin.- party on the
night O'lJannon was killed.
For the first time hice his confine
ment lie expressed a desire this morning
to see a mlnl'tcr. reniarking tli.it tho ex
periment might do him some good n It
could not, In any event, result in In
jury. l.veryfhlng was In it nfliinilorthe exe
cution and during the entire lorenoon
people poured Into the place from all
part or the country to witness the scone.
Aged men came with their lamillcs in
wagons, including even their little ones
and daughter. The negro population
was largely represented. At ten o'clock
the number swelled to one thousand.
