When C. E. Hobart was arraigned
several days sinco on tho charge of
murdering John Miller, he most stren
uously objected to having counsel ap
pear for him and insisted on pleading
guilty, repeating the assertion no less
than five times that he was guilty. The
court directed, however, that a plea of
not guilty be entered upon the records
and November 18th .was set for the
trial of tho case. On account of .an
other criminal case being on trial
that day his trial went over to tho next
day. Ou being brought into court on
Thursday ho was asked by the judge if
ho 3till desired to plead guilty, to
which ho answered iu tho affirmative,
and tho clerk was directed to enter his
plea of guilty.
Tho district attorney was then asked
if ho had any testimony to offer to
show Iho court the natureof the crime,
when he introduced two witnesses,
William Sachs aud Washington Hose
berry, both of whom were iu Miller's
saloon at tho time the atrocious mur
der was committed aud wcro eye-witnesses
to tlie crime.
Both of them testified to the same
general facts aud tho testimony was
substantially as follows:
Miller was standing in his saloon,
between the bar and tho stove, facing
tho front door, when Hobart entered
tho door, Winchester iu hand. As ho
got inside the saloon he pulled the
Winchester down on Miller and caid:
"Now, Miller, you , I want
oiir money or I'll kill you," aud al
most simultaneously with the demand
ho tired tho gun, before Miller even
had a chance to reply. Miller fell to
the floor, and without even uttering a
sound died within a few minutes.
Sachs started to arise from his chair
when Hobart turned the gun towatds
him and said: "If you move, you
, I'll kill you, too," and with

nays ago suspected his wife of
infidelity, and on Tuesday night ac
cused Montague of having led her
astray A violent quarrel ensued, end
ing in a challenge by Montague to
fight a duel to the death. The chal
lenge was accepted, and the choice of
weapons fell to Komero as the chal
lenged party. Ho chose Spanish
knives, and tho next morning at sun
rise was fixed as the date of tho meet
ing which should surely end iu the
death of one or the other.
The parties met yesterday morning,

fierce but brief, aud Komero fell with
a disabling cut iu his right groin. Im
