The opening part ot the performance
was one of the finest that has ever been
witnessed by the people of this city, and
the remainder of the entertainment was In
full keeping with the 'circle." Through
out the performance was one of unusual
merit, and was highly pleasing to every
body. What a Lady Maya.
I am sure no cooking stive that ever
was made has given so great satisfaction
as the Charter Oak. The arrangement
of the flues Is such as to always insure

Tho trial of John W. Vlckors tor the
murder I tho negro Champion !ews.
was continued before Justices of the
reaco Cross and Cemini's yesUnlsy
Michael Staplcton t3Ulled: I was
pabslnj by Thlstlewood's commission
house, ou Ohio levee. 1 heard noue of
the talk between the tuen, but beard a
pistol shot and turned around and saw
this man (Vkkcrs) shooting. Ho had
two revolvers. He shot probably twice
with one, and then changed revolvers.
He fbot four or five times.
F. 9. Kent testified:--! was standing
near Williamson's store, with my hack
to the parties. I heard a pi'tol shot and
turned around, I saw Vlrkera shooting
at the negro, who ran up stair. He
shot five or six ahots. Vkkers didn't go
up the stairs, but went Into O. D. Wil
liamson's store and went out the back
door. I saw the colored man running as
Vlckers fired the second shot. Tho par
ties were from Ave to ten feet apart. I
went up to the colored man and began
talking with him. He had a buck-horn
handled knife-sn his hand while I wa
talking with him. 1 saw no weapon in
the hand of Lewis while the tiring wa
going on. I was talking with other per
sons and heard no words between them
I was about twenty-five yards from
them. 1 didn't know either. Vicker
didn't say anything, but Oeorge Hill
snid "don't shoot tli at man again," and
Vickers put up his pluot. I didn't ex
amine I-wis woiimlH. The firing wai
ve ry rapid. 1 can't say how long tin
blade of the kuite I saw in Lewis' hano
was. I don't know whether it had a
blade or not.
Sam. Williamson testified : I saw Vick
ers on the day of the shooting. I saw
the colored man Lewis, also, 1 hear
tVeni quarreling in Iront ot the store. I
was tnlklng with 111. Williamson, und
could not get the drift ot thu conversa
tion. 1 told III. that there was two men
quamliiig out there, and that the tilggi r
was doing all the talking. I heard tin
report of a pistol. 1 looked up but
cou d not ee what Vicker was shootitiv
at. Tliere w ere three or four shots Mreo
as quick us a man could cock a pistol.
Alter the first shot, I saw Vickers fin
two or three shots, but could not see
wbat he was shooting at- I was stand
ing in the door, Vickers waa firing to
ward the stairway. Vickers was eight
or ten feet from the stairway, below the
entrance. 1 saw the colored man altei
the shooting. He was sitting on the
steps. 1 saw Captalu Hill, but did no:
hear him say anything, 1 saw one pistol
in the hands ol Vickers after the shoot
ing. It looked like a four barrel Id pistol.
Vickers came In the tor, and I though,
took the cylinder oft and commenced
loading it. He picked It up and went
out the backdoor. I don't know what
the size ot the pistol waA. -
John Wilson testified : I live on Flfih
street. 1 bave seen Vickers several
timei, but hate forgotten J'.tst wlir?. 1
have seen him several times wlthlu the
laii. month. I have worked at William
son's store since kit spring. Vickers
came into the store on the day of the
Miootm -about one o'clock. 1 was In
the store. Vickers and Lewis quarreled
in front ot the store. The colored man
wanted Vickers to give liini some money,
and called a young white roan acro-s the
street to prove something by him. The
colored man said I told you so," and
says "come along," to the white fellow.
The colored man turned around and
Vickers says. "I've got enough of you."
and shot him. Lewis says "what did
you do that for." and ran into the hall
and ehut the door. Vicker put his
hand through a broken gla in the
door and fired two more tiroes.
Ths men were tight or ten
feet apart when the shooting began. 1
didn't see the colored mau Uo anything
when Vickers shot him. I could have
seen it if he had. I didn't see Lewi
have any weapon. I did not go to where
he was lying. I didn't see him after he
was taken away. I never saw Lewis be
fore that day. Did not know his name.
T. W. Ualliday testified : I waa stand
ing at 'he bottom of Ihe stairway leading
to the Western Union telegraph office,
and heard the parties talking. Heard
Lewla say something about a knife In a
threatening manner, and thought there
was going to he trouble and left. They
were standing just in Iront of the bank.
fcol Silver testified : I didn't know the
parties. I saw Vickers aud the darky on
the day of the trouble. The darky asked
Vicker for ten dollar he owid him.
Vicker faid I don't owe you anything. I
paid the oth -r man. They kept on quar
reling for some time. The darkey did
the most talking, and said he wanted to
fight Vicker like a gentleman. I re
marked to Halliday, with whom 1 was
talking, that there was going to be a duel,
and that we'd better get away. I wen'
into the telegraph office, and a short time
afterward! heard ihots. Upon going
out, found the darkey had been shot by
the white man.' 1 did not eee ttus shoot
ing. Albert Antrim testified : 1 was coming
f'oni dinner. The white man(Vlcker)had
a box and twojugi in Iront ol express of.
flee. The negro waa talking to him
about money. The negro sidd there was
no law iti Kentucky, and he had eons to
Cairo to settle It. Another uegro stand
ing by said something about letting Vick
en beat him out ol the money, and Lewi
and he went down the street. 1 he white
man went to O. P. Williamson's and put

conversation, and he uiked me whether
Vickers had come to Cairo. I said "1
doa't know ad n thing about him," and
left him. This was a short lime before
the election. 1 have been acquainted

The prisoner was next called, and tes
tified : My name is John W. Vickers. I
met Louis on Ohio levee, before the ex
press office on the day of the trouble.
Ihe first word he said was, "I want that
money you owe me." I told him 1 didn't
owe ant money. He said you took my
money from me wrongfully, and that he
would have It before he left town. I said
1 guess you are mlitakeo about that. He
ays no, bv G d. I'm not. I 11 have It
some way or another. I told bint 1 was In
a hurry, aud he should go a ray and let
m3 alone. He said he didn't
care; by G d; he was going
to have the "money I took from him be
fore I went to the ferry boat. I'll light
you for It like a gentleman. I told him
not to talk fight to me; that I did not want

officer if he could not get his money any
other way, I told blm to gel him, and
not to bother me any more. He turned
an! went dowu toward Sixth street then,
aud 1 took a couple ot jug and a box 1

hand. 1 knew it was run or shoot, a d did
not know how I might come out run

way. 1 aimed at hi etotuach. The liret
two or thrwe shot I fired a rapidly as 1
could. 1 expected to see him fall the
first ehot, but he did not, and 1 thought
he was still coming ulter me. 1 had
been told t.vo or three times
that he had said he would cut my d u
heart out. 1 am twentytutht jeur old.
