Tha Coroner's Inquest Tha Con
dition of tha Body When
Suapicioua Circumstances An
other Inquest to be Held
Our neighboring ylllago of Mound
City was yesterday morning thrown Into
a state ol the utmost excitement over the
report that one of ths oldest and inot
prominent and Influential cltl&'iis of that
place Ur. John W, Carter, lnd
and In less than hall an hour Irora the
tim) the discovery of the body wss made
nine out ot every ten citizens of
the place had heard of the afkir.
Word oftlae death of Mr. Carter having
reached a reporter lor the Bulletin, he
sturted immediately for Mutind City,
where be arrived in due time, and at
once set to work to gather what In
formation be could ol tho sad event.
From those who were most .ntimately
acquainted with Mr. Carter, and who
were among the first In at the scene sftcr
the body was discovered, we leurned the
tub on we.
In order to give the reader a better
understanding oi the surroandings ol
the body when discovered, it will be
necessary to give a brief description of
the iuside arrangements of Mr. Carter's
office. Thc building Is one story high,
and Mr. Carter was the only occupant
The inside ot the building is divided Into
three apartments.jbe first of which, and
the one first entered from the street,
was occupied by Mr. Carter as an
office. Next Is a small room perhaps
twelve feet long by eight wide. This
room contained a desk, a bureau, several
mattresses, two or three pillows and a
quantity of bed -clothing, and It was in
this room that thc body was discovered.
Back of the bedroom Is another room,
perhaps twelve feet square, which, from
Its Rppearancc,w? snould judge was used
by Mr. Carter a? a store-room. This is
tho arrangement of the inside ot the build

out, made Hrxj, etc.. .tated that wben he
entered the offlce in the morning, be -
twten six and seven o'clock, he lonnd
the office- In Its usual order, and started
to go from the office to the slor'.-room,
and when passing through the bedroom
saw Mr. Carter lying ou the mattress,
an I It occurred to hirn that his eoun

HE WAS DEAD.
He Immediately gaTe tbe alarm, and in
a few minutes a half dosen persons had
gathered In the office, When fonnd, tbe
COVERED TO THE .NECK
with bed clothing. On removing the
qmlts It was tuiind that he had all his

lay on his breast, he held a small re

tub cause or death
was then looked lor, and a buKet hole
was discovered In tho right temple just
a'Kve and to tbe front of the ear. l'lie
ball took a downward course and
came out just under thc ear on the kit
side of the head. The mattress under
the body was saturated with blow),
though nowhere else in tho room culd
blood be found. From all accouuts It
would seem that .Mr. Carter bad gone to
his olEce sometime between nine and
ten o'clock the nlgbt before. Mr. George
Richards, tbe conducter on tho Mound
City railroad, just before stsrting on bis
regular trip to Mounds Junction to
meet the up train on the Illinois Central
went into the office. Ii seems that there
were lour keys to the outside door. Mr.
Carter carried one and Mr. Richard aud
tbe colored porter ech had a key, aud
tbe lourth was Usually to be found hi a
drawer In tho offlce. Mr. Richards
unlocked the door when be went Into
the office, and finding tbe door
leading trom the office to the bedroom
locked on tho inside, felt sure that Mr.
BAD SOKK TO BED. .
On entering the offlce he found the lamp
burning, and before leaving put out the
light and re-locked the door. Mr. Rich
ards tben left lor tbe Junction and did
not return to Mound City again until
fifteen minutes before five o'clock in the
morning. When he re-entered the office
he found that the
LAMP HAD BEEX REUQttTID,
and moved from the place where It
usually set to another part ot the ofilce.
He saw too that the door leading to the
bedroom was open, end that on the desk
In the office lay some of Mr. Carter's
account books, opened out. These mat
ters, the lighted lamp, tbe opening of
the bedroom' door, and tbe condition of
the books, attracted his attention, but
he gave tbe matter no serious thought
aud went out and, locked the office door
behind him, and utter putting ids team
sway, wont home. The first he knew ol
Mr. Carter's deatn was when -be got tip
in tho morning. "
l couokjr's JDT, lilt
was assembled and an inquest held, sod
tbetfretestaatta attaadiaf Kaa nadlar
of the body and the matters related by
Mr. niebards eoacarolug the lighting
ol tbs lamp, the books, -etc., were
brought up, The Jury without much
deliberation returned a verdict of "death
This verdict of tbe Jury, however, was
liot satlalactory to everybody, aud there
were many who claimed that Urn les
sons lor ' ; - '' ; .. "'" ,
.i . I i '' -' .'" v I i
were many and forcible. Tbe fact that
when the body was found both hands
were lying on tho breaM. Ms bed clothing
covering them and tucked cltte up to th
thin, was poiuu-d ' lo at a Htm. g
reason for suspecting fml (d.. Auoil.ei
thing that seemed to himi I"'h th bi llet
that Carter bad been i"jr.icic. AH
the lact that lmd he slut him-elf tie
would necessarily have ntui the pistol
so close to bis heed, that ill re woul i
have been powder murks on Hie tlivli
and the hair would have lei n Mi.i'd'
but nothing ot the kind sm visible.
Not a hair ot hli bead n is humi d,
nor was there to be found the
slightest trace oi burned powder on his
face. These circumstances, oupled with
the fact that as late as uini o'clock on
Thursday evening Dr. Casej and otln rs
met Mr. Carter at the post oUce. aud he
was In his usual good tumor, and
laughed an I talked with them on various
u ji-cts, were pointed to In support ol
lUe ttiewry that be was rnurdi-red.
A WOll AM IN TUB CASK.
There are those who claim that there
Is a "woman In tho case." It is said,
but with how much truth we do not
know, thit Mr. Carter bad formed an
alliance witli a young woman in Mound
City, and that of lute sha had giveu him
considerable trouble. This woman was
called as a witness before the coroner's
Jury, and she testified that she had nut
seen Mr. Carter since Tuesday evening,
but that on Thursday evening she wrote
Mm a note Baying that she was going
away, and would send her trunk to the
station. The . negro who carried this
note to Mr. Carter testified that be
(Carter) wroto an answer to tho note
and gHVO it to him to deliver, but that on
Ills return he could not find tbe woman,
and be took the note back to Mr. Carter.
Search was made for these notes
but no trace ot them could be fonnd.
There are those who attach muih Im
portance to thii matter, and believe that
II Uils little incident is properly worked
up, it will lead to the true theory as to
how Carter came to his death. At all
events, thc circumstances above stated
ton manner In which the bed clothing
covered tho body, tho fact that there is
not tho slightest evidence of powder oo
the face, or that the hair was burned,
the woman and the notes ; and the fact
that the piotol .

could not be identified as belonging

it, are all pointed to as going
t show that be did not commit
suicide but that he w as murdered. In
fact thsre are very lew people in Mound
City who take any stock in the idea that
Mr. Carter committed suicide, and tho
desire lor a more thorough I uves titration
ot the matter has become so strong that
another Inquest will bo had
to-day, when it is to be hoped
that the truth concerning this most de
plorable afluir may be brought to' the
surface. We do not believe that John
Carter killed himself, and we do believe
that he was murdered, and that too by
some one who was on familiar terms
with him and knew tho arrangements of

was arranted him to Alexander county,
escaped last Wednesday night The
affair has a very flsMy look and we hear
tbe Alexander county officials severely
criticised for allowing this grand rascal
to escape. He will likely never be beard

Walker's escape will not look quite se

will not be so " severely criticized " by
the people, when both understand the
eireuiu-tances ol bis escape. - Tbe cell In

poor one, which was no laull ol the

Below we givo a number ot reasons
why people should buy their groceries
from Pettis & Bird :
1 t. Because theirtocks Is the largest,
freshest and choicest In thc city.
2nd. Because they sell goodsof every
kind e hcaper than any other house in the
3rd. Becaiuc they deliver goods more
promptly and-in better shape than any
other house in the city.
4th. Because they keep the most com
plete stock, and persons desiring to
purchase llrTerent kinds of goods are not
compelled to go elsewhere because
Messrs. P. & B. have not got the goods
These we consider substantial reasons
why our readers should buy their goods
ot Pettis & Bird,
Comer llthst. and Washington avenue.
Also Just received a large lot ot Yar
tiell Bro.'s Baking Powder, the beet
goods made ; only requires one tcaspoou
tul to the quart ol flour. Give it a trial
and you will ue no other.
