Lh < L TDf the 1 C deptol
stabbedugh the left auricle of
the Herb Walter Pettus Both
parties were colored
PrOntfwliat could be gathered the
men had quarreled Sunday The
cause of the quarrel it is said waS
Pettus having cursed the mother of
Edwards Yesterday morning they
met at the tCdepotand the difficulty
was renewed It is said that Pettus
drew a long pocket knife and made
several attempts to cut Edwards
Edwards managed though to keep
out of reach of Pettus knife and
finally grabbed a small piece of
plank and with it struck his assailant
a blow on the head which knocked
him down Pettus then rose and
made at Edwards again with
his knife but as the first blow with
the plank had broken it Edwards
was unable to defend himself and
Pettus plunged the knife into his
left breast the blade entering the
heart Edwards fell and was dead
in a few seconds
Seeing that he had killed his man
Pettus started on a run up Water
street towards 8th and at 5 oclock
had not been captured The diffi
culty was witnessed by several per
sons but nobodyattempted to arresi
the murderer The police was no
tified but it was all done so quickly
that the police could not get to the
scene of the tragedy in time to get
all the particulars before Pettus had
j gotten away
The murder caused great excite
ment and hundreds gathered at the
depot and saw the dead man lying
on the platform awaiting the ar
rival of the coroner but as he could
not be found Edwards friends were
allowed to take the body home
The victim was a young man
aged about 22 and was the only son
of his mother He was industriou s
and well liked by those who knex
ijiho
ijihHismother
His mother was notified of he
sons fate and hurried to her dead
boy When she saw him dead 01
the platform she became franti c
with grief and her wailing could b e
heard to the far end of the platform
as she wept over her son She
told those standing around her ho w
obedient was and what a help hi
had been to her since he had growi
to manhood

CHANGE
Of Waiting Rooms at IIC
Station
The waiting rooms at the Illinois
Central Station are to be changed at
once The north room heretofore
used by the colored people is to be
i renovated for the future use of
white people The south room will
I become the waiting roOm of the
I blacks
blacksThis
This will be far more convenient
for both classes of passengers as
the coaches and sleepers for white
people stop in front of the north
room and the car for colored people
stops near the doorof the south room
and in going to their respective cars
l the two classes of travelers had to
pass each other on the platform
3 This was about as inconvenient as
1 could possibly have been arranged t
1 and caused a good deal of annoyance
o when a crowd was either going I
h away or waiting to see friends off or
orI
on the train We congratulate Agent
Mallon on the change he is making
The change will take place as soon I
e as the rooms can be renovated and 1
put in order and everybody will be
