THREE MURDERS IN 24 HOURS.. '
People of Graves County '
Are on Warpath This Week. '
Our neighboring county of araves
has been the scone of 3 cold-blooded
murders this week, all occurring
within twenty-four hours. L
Tho first and most brutal was com
mitted Monday morning about 61 o'
clock, when Alvin Wheler, living
near Sodalla, eight miles south, of
Blayflold, was shot down while ut
work in his tobacco patch.
He had Just begun to hoe the to
bacco when- Bufus Bllllngton. aced
22 years, rode up on horseback, end
called Mr. Wheeler to the fence. They
engaged In a few moments' conver
sation, when BilUngton fired a bullet
Into Wheeler's breast, who turned
and ran only to receive two more
mortal wounds In the back. A 6on
of tho wounded man, who was in the
field a short distance away, ran "to
itho home, and securing a shotgun,
fired at BilUngton, but only two, or
throe of the shot, which .were smail;
took offect in his face.
BilUngton escaped after being trail
ed by bloodhounds, a number of. of
ficers and several hundred angry .cit
izens. The people were never more
aroused and should they lay their,
hands on him It Is safe to predict
that the law would not have to take
Wheeler fe 42 years okl and one of
the leading jcltlzens, while his slayer
is from a prominent family but reck
less. Tho tragedy is tho termination
of an enmity that has existed betweei
the men for twelve months. It Is be
lioved that BilUngton is hiding in the
woods near his home and the posse
hopes to close in and capture him be
fore ho has e. chance to use hie gun,
ns he has boasted that ho would not
.be taken alive. He Is considered, a
desperate and dangerous man and
trouble Is feared when he Is met with.
Another tragedy occurred Sunday
morning about 7 o'clock, near Duke
dom, in the south part of tho county.
John Dallas, in tho presence of Clar
ence Elliott, Benton Waddlngton. and
Jack ilagness, was shot, but neither
of tho three men have divulged the
name of the guilty person. Two
have been arrested and Incarcerated
while Magness escaped across- the
Tennessee line. Tho young men had
been ta a barn on tho farm of John
Henry Okve all Sunday night drink
ing and playing cards. When the
shot was heard, neighbors rushed to
the scene only to find Dallas iylng
on the floor with life almost extinct.
Without any cause and while in an
intoxicated condition, Will Lindsoy
went to the homo of Will Hayden,
near Bulah, Sunday morning about 11
o'clock and knocked down several wo
men, stabbed John Draper, an aged
man, in the back, from which wound
death resulted Monday, and mode his
escape across the line imto Hickman
Feeling Is at high pitch and mob
violence is feared ahould Ldndsey be
captured. Crime ran rampant again
on Saturday night when, at a coun
try danco at Dogwood school house
several miles north of JlarfloM, a
young man Jerked out a razor wfcllc
being ejected from the ring and
slashed half a dozen or more people
ncross the face, hands and body.
Deputy sheriff Merit Seay, William
McNeil, John JMack and Will Collier
suffered Bevere cuts, two of them
getting their cheeks cut wide open.
