Ex-Sheriff of Powell Shot.
"Billy" Bowen, former Sheriff
of Powell county, was shot Sun
day by Henry Skidraoro, who
in turn was shot and mortally
wounded, by Reese Bowen, a
brother of ''Billy" Bowen. It
is claimed Bowen was accidntally
shot whilo ho and bkidmoro wero
scuffling over tho possession of a
a revolver, and when Reese Bow
en camo up and saw his brother
had been shot, supposed that
Skidmore had done tho shooting
and opened fire, one of the shots
taking effect in his brother's ab
domen and it is probable that this
shot, caused his death. Skidmore
was taken to Lexington where he
was operated on, but his recovery
is very doubtful.
Thero was but one witness to the
rhooting and the above informa
tion was secured from a relative of
all tho parties. Tho Bowen's and
