Col A. Npriicor.
One inoi niug early In Hie summer of
1S72 there came to (he Di i.i.kik olllee
an old gentleman who Inquired for Mr.
Oberly, wllli whom he said he had Im
portant and urgent, business. He was
neatly droned In u stilt ol black' broad
cloth, and was In every way of exceeding
genteel and respectable nppearanee, and
might have been mistaken for a minister.
He was thowu to Mr. Oberly's room
where after ?oino commonplace remmks,
he settled down to business, and Iu a
straight-forward, frank manner made the
object of his visit known. He said he
had been In the city several days, and
put up at Ihe St. Charles hotel. Thut
morning the proprietor of the house
had called on him to settle hi bill, which
he was unable to do, and being without
baggage, ho was notlllcd that he
must pay In advance, or leave the
house. He said he had once been In the
newspaper business If wo remember cor
rectly, he said ho had once owned and
edited one el the leading Savanah, Geor
gia, dallies, and wanted -Mr. Oberly to
give hfm employment for n few weeks
that he inlicht write to Ids friends for
means. Mr. Oberly took the old man In,
gave hlin a room In his own house', and
boarded him, and In payment the old
man occasionally wrote articles for the
Uui.i.r.Tt.v. Ho remained at Mr. Oberly's
four or llvo week", and then took his
departure. The next we heard ot him
was nt Cape Girardeau, where he was
married lo a daughter of Mrs.
llranch, who was at one time, (In 1 SOS),
proprietress ot the old American Houe
on Eighth street In this city. Now for
tlie sequel. Every body who reads the
dally papers, has read ol the cold-blooded
murder of Col. A. Spencer at Linn, .Mis
souri, on the morning of the tilth ot the
present month. Col. Spencer was no
other than the old gentleman above re
As reported by tho Linn correspon
dent of the St. Louis 7Ym, the
circumstances or the killing or Col.
Sencer were about the these : On
tlie morning of the 19th Col. Spencer
was standing In front of n harness shop
In the Utile town of Linn In conversation
wlth-fcvera) gentlemen. While thus en
gaged the door of the simp suddenly open
ed, and a man with a revolver In his band
stepped out or the door and said, "Col.
Spencer, where is my wife and boy ?"
Col. Spencer exclaimed, "Who are you?
What do you want?" And started tii
go across the street, but before he had
gone ten steps was shot through Ihe
head, and died within a few minutes.
The murderer, turning to the shetlll of
the county, who by this time had arrived
on the ground stilil, "I am your prison
er. Take this pistol ; 1 have no lurther
use for It."
It seems that Mrs. .Spencer had been
married twice beloreslie married Spencer.
Her llr hustiauil's name was Murphy,
and he died some years ago. In ISCS at
Carbondalc, Jackson county, Illinois, she
was, married to Jeflcis, who at that time
was known as Davis Jellersou, and under
this latter uame'he wooed and won Mrs.
Murphy. Shortly litter their mairlage
Mrs. Jellers ascertained that Ihe man to
whom she was united had another
wife living and from whom he was not
even divorced. Learning this she at
once lelt Jeller.s. Iu 1S72 she married
Spencer, though she had iiuver ob
tained a divorce from Jeller. .Idlers, It
appears, was fondly attached to Ids wlle
and could not brook the Idea of seeing
her the wire or another, and hence Ihe
murder. Mrs. Spencer was known to
many persons In this city.
