in the community, and we are not informed
that there was any occasion for the elope

A HOLT TIIK K(M VM- TIIK DIAIIOI.ICAL WORK
OF A .IEtl.Ol SXWiltO-Fn.LrAKTIcn.AHS.
On tho corner of Commercial avenue nnd
Twenty-eighth .street, in this city, is h. large,
dilapidated, two story frame building.
From the circumstance that a jwtion of
the lumber used in the construction of tho
building, is full of iiuger.holcs, the struc
ture is known as
"TIIK IIOLF. IX-TIIK-WALL."
The building is occupied by a half dozen
or more colored men and women, and is
tho known resort of prostitutes. The
frequenters of the house arc of the lower
class of negroes, including a large per
centum ot river men ; nnd tho stories that
gain currency, of the dissipation, debauch
cry, fights and frolics in which these fre
quenters, joined . by tho inmates,
are said to indulge, aro numerous,
and of the most shameful and debasin"
character. As tho building is rather
isolated, and there arc but few families
in the neighborhood to be annoyed or dis
turbed by tho oft-recurring orgies of the
place, the participants have escaped the
penalties t which they have so frequently
rendered themselves liable.
DISGRACEFUL AND DAMXIXt),
however, as the carryings-on under the roof
of the "Hole-in-thc-Wall" hitherto have
been.it was reserved for last Sunday to cap
sheaf the infamy of the place by a most
FIENDISH AXD DIABOLICAL MUHDF.R.
About 1 o'clock wc met Sheriff Hodges
in the vicinity of the court bouse, and with
the remark, "you'll have occasion for an
extra Bulletin in the morning," he placed
in our hands an ordinary chopping axe,
the poll of which was thickly
SMEARED WITH BLOOD AND BRAINS.
In answer to our inquiries he informed
us that a negro man had been mur
dered at the corner of Twenty-eighth street
and Commercial, and that he had the mur
derer confined in jail. We immediately re
paired to the spot indicated, and found the
house, the sidewalk and street in front,
crowded with men, women and children,
the blacks largely predominating. Learn
ing where the body could lw found, wc
reached the second floor of the building
over a filthy, rickety flight of stairs that led
directly to a door of a room in which had
gratherd a dozen or more of negro women,
most of them
KAIKiED AND BE01UMED WITH FILTn,
and as many as five or six of them smoking
the foulest tobacco pipes that ever offended
decent human nostrils. Gaining the mid
dle of this room we stood facing the door
communicating with the room in which the
murder had been committed. The room
was so compactly jammed with men and
women, black and white, that we hesitated
to enter, lest there should be a "letting-go"
of the old timbers that supported the floor,
and a sudden disastrous "lctting-down" of
the surging mass that filled it. Finally,
summoning the required strength of will
and stomach, wc squeezed our way to the
bed, around which a circle of men and wo
men were tightly wedged, acdtherc,straight
cned out upon the outer covering of the
bed was the bloody body of the negro man,
Carter Newman, who had been
Ml' RDF. UK!) WHKKE HE WAS LYINO,
les than two hours before.
Putting together the answers we re
ceived to inquiries, wc aro enabled to give
the following vcrtion of the affair, which
will, wo think, prove generally correct:
Living in the "Hole-in-the-wall" wis a
middle-aged negro man named Charley
Glass. He kept, and sometimes acknowl
edged as his wife, a negro woman, about
twenty-two years of uge, who is known by
the name of Ruth Brown. Carter Jicw
rr.an was a steamboat roust-a-bout, and
arrived in Cairo, a few days ago, on the
John A. Scudder, und had been in the
habit of taking his meals with Class, who
had .known him from boyhood. Kuth
Browu being about the house much of
her time, Newman soon obtained a footing
of familiar terms with her, and Glass be
cumo jealous. On Thuisday last he
worked himself into a furious passion, nnd
attempted to chastise Ruth for her alleged
infidelity to him; but Newman being on
hand, interfered, and Ruth escaped; but
Glass' blood was up, and he swore by every
thing sacred that
BLOOD BHOUM) WASH (MT
the insults and disgrace that had, that day,
been put upon him. These threats were
Hupposed t be tho vaporing", of un angry
man, and recollection of them scarcely
survived their utterance.
About 10 o'clock Sunday forenoon New
man gave or promiBctl to give Kuth a dollar.
Both of them repaired to the room in wlich
theliody was tound, and shortly afterwards
Ruth and other inmates of the house, vidt-
ed the photographic tent in the neighbor
hood, to get a picture taken. Newman re
mained on tho bed, and soon fYi int0 A
Bound sleep, face downward. A colored
woman named Mrs. Sarah McKadden, oc
cupying an adjoining room, wns the only
person besides Newman, left on t)lc. upper
floor of the building. It was at this junc
tion that Charley Gliiss made his appear
ance He osked Mrs. McF. to loim ,jm )L.r
uxo ai ho wished to split b hiio kindling
wood. The axo wub handed to him; a fcW
step brought him to Newnmir IWdc,
and in a few seconds more, the poll
of tho axo had
CUU8IIED TUROUOU TIIK HLEKIMXO MAN'
and buried ituclf, midway tho eye, in his
brain. With such terrible force was tho
blow given that the victim's
11 HA INS BKRI'ATTEHEl THE WALL,
and reached the ceiling, a height of seven
or eight feet. It is not thought that more
than one blow took effect; but that blow
did terrible execution. The back skull was
crushed in and broken into a hundred
fragments portions of it wero driven to a
depth of two inches into the bruin, und
other fragments wero drawn out with tho
axe, and dropped upon the bedding. We
have rarely, indeed, looked upon a more
AI'FALLINO, BICKEXINU SK111T
than that which was left iu the "Jlole-in-the
Wall," on Sunday last, as the result of
Charley Glass' murderous work.
The consummation of this most
damning and hellish deed, occu
pied less than a minutes' time.
Dropping the nxo in the room where
he had used it, Glass descended the stairs,
and meeting Ruth Brown nnd one Ellen
McKearney, shook them both by the hands,
and telling thorn they would never see him
any more, he passed on. Ellen McKearney,
hurrying up stairs and entering the room
in which she had left Newman lying, saw
the body, and rushing out of the house
again, gave the alarm. Glas continued his
way up the sidewalk a short distance, left
the line of the street, nnd passing out into
the commons turned around and shaped his
course dewn town. Just what his purpose
was, is nt known; but news of the murder
spread o rapidly that before he had
reached a point two hundred yards distant
from tlx scene of his bloody work, a crowd
of thirty or forty colored men and a number
of wbiUs were in close pursuit. The cry
was raited to
"LYNCH THE MUKDKKEH !"
and thf crowd swelling rapidly, and the
exaspuation of the blacks increasing, it
looked very much as it the bliHidy-hamk'd
moust-r would be made to suffer the
penuty of his crime, without the interven
tion i$ judge or jury. The ciy of "hang
him"had grown furious, when Patsy Lally
reaclcd the ground, and Glas, fearing the
grovang fury of the crowd, placed himself
undrr Lally's protection. Lally, soon com
prehending the situation, concluded to
reso't to a little strategy, as well to keep
the Jifuriated blacks from
TKARINO THE MUHDKRF.R TO PIECES,
as U invicgle him to the court house, where
he ould turn him over to the jailer. Iu
punuancc of this idea, and to keep his mail
out of the hands of the howling mob,
Laly drew his revolver, declared that Glass
had surrendered himself into Ids care, and
lie ould thin and there
SHOOT THE MAN FILL OK HOLES
who touched him. This threat had the ef
fect of keeping the crowd at bay, and Glass
needed but little assurance that if he didn't
stirk close by him, Lally, that the negroes
HA NO AND Qt'AUTEU HIM,
as they had threatened to do. In this way,
and by satisfying his prisoner that once in
the hands of the Sheriff the mob could not
nvlest him, Lally succeeded in getting his
ch irg" into the custody of Sheriff Hodges
who will see to it that, whenever the proper
parties want him. he will be forthcoming.
For Hie part Lally played in tho trightfnl
drama, he deserves much credit. But for
his coolnc, strategy ami bravery the dam
aging story of
"HASHED IIT A now LINO MOB,"
would have been added to the story of the
murder and to the scores of other stories
that have served to give to our city un ugly
Carter Newman was rather a comely
black man, aged about "twenty-four years.
He was not a drinking man, and, although
his associates were of the lower and more
vicious grade of negroes, ho was
not regarded as a quarrelsome man or a
dangerous one. He was unmarried, and
his father mid mother now well advance
cd in years reside in Louisville,
Kentucky. For further details read
the. foMowing "brief" of the evidence drawn
out during the Coroner's inquest, which
was held yesterday morning, by Richard
Fitzgerald, Esq., County Coroner :
THE STORY TOLD UNDER OATH.
Summonsing the following named gentle
men to act as jurors: Jas. Sunierwcll,
Jno. Rces, Chas. II. Murdock, 0. A.
Osborn, Jas. Kynaston, Richard Walsh,
Edward Jones, Pat. Kennedy, Herb. A.
Harrell, James T. Allen, John Quinn, John
! Tyler tho Coroner proceeded to tho
acene of tho homicide, where, after nam
ing Mr. James Sumerwcll as foreman, und
viewing the body of deceased, ho com
menced his inquiry.
Charley Olass, tho murderer, being
sworn, was shown tho body, and in an
swer to questions, said, "Yes, that's Carter
Newman ;thaVH the man I killed. I killed
him with nn axe." Whilo surveying the
bloody body ho gave no indications of sor
row, of remorse, or of tear of tho dreadful
consequences he had invoked. He was, to
all appearances, less concerned about the
matter than any other man in the room.
Tho jury and the prisoner having seen
and identified tho body, repaired to a room
bolow, and excluding the throng that had
gathered to feast on the "horrors" of the
occasion, "proceeded to business. The
flrt witness examined was tho prisoner,
Charley Olass. He said ho visited tho
room they had jtiBt left, about 10 o'clock,
Sunday morning. Saw "his woman," Ruth
Brown, in there with Newman, and robuked
her for dressing iu tho presonco of a man,
She replied that sho wasn't dressing was
merely putting on her corsets. She further
said that I hud tried to kill her two or
three times and would have succeeded but.
for Newman. She loved Newman, she
said, hated me, and had left me for good,
I then left, went across tho street apd
talked with Jim Monroe awhile. Seeing
Ruth nnd Ellen leave the house, I returned,
went up stairs, picked up an axe in Mrs.
McFatlden'a room, uml W(.nt into the room
where Newman was. I ij,in-t intend to
kill him. I find leased the bouse, nnd sub
let portions of it. I told Newman, who was
sitting on the bed. to get up and get out of
that. He then ordered me to leave. I
then up with the axo nnd struck him. The
first lick wns light, but knocked him over;
the second lick wiw very heavy, and killed
him. I then set the axe down, went down
stairs and started up street. The barance
of Glass' testimony adds nothing nw to
what has already been detailed.
Ruth Brown was then sworn. She bad
been Glass' woman for about a year, and
they had thought of getting married nnd
living decently ; but he had been beating
and abusing her for more than a week, and
last Sunday she told him she wouldn't live
with him and longer; but wanted her
things ami they would purt. lie replied
that he was a good man us good a man as
she could find, and he would not stand it.
About 9 o'clock Sunday morning witness.
Ellen McKerney and Newman were in the
Ellen's room (where the murder was com
mitted) Newman asked if he could lie
down. Wyutt McKerney then came in
und s lys : "Come Newman, let's go have
fun on lever." Newman says "No, I ship
to-morrow and want to sleep." Witness
was adjusting her corset. Glasj came in
s'tw Newman lying on bed, and quarrelled
with witness for stripping before men.
Witness siid she wasn 't stripping, but was
putting on her corset. Glass then left ia a
bad humor, and shortly afterwards witness
passed duwn stairs. She was speedily
joined by Ellen, and the two re
paired to the photographic tent; but find
ing it full, started back to the house; and
met Glass coming up the street. He shook
hands with both of them and bid them
"good-bye." The rest ot this woman's
testimony was unimportant.
Ellen McKerney corrolwrated Ruth's
statement, and added that when Ruth
passed out of the room, she, the witnrss,
told Newman not to put his feet on her
bed. She then joined Ruth on the side
walk and the two went to the gallery.
Coming back they met Glass as already
stated. Ruth thought he was going to
Mmind City to get work ; witness thought
he was going to the river to drown himself,
and brsccched Ruth to go with her and
keep him from destroying himself. The
two continued their course, however, until
they reached the house. Witness hurried
to her rooru to get dinner, and seeing
Newman, lying asleep, as she thought, she
pulled him by the pantaloon's leg to awa
ken him, and instantly afterwards discov
ered that lit had been murdered, and gave
the alarm by running down stairs crying
Sarah McFailden. who occupies a room
adjoining that in which the murder was
committed, stated tha. she had lived in the
building about a week ; Glass entered her
room between 1 1 and 12 o'clock Sunday
morning, and picking up nn axe which she
had borrowed from Ellen McKerney,
opencil tho door and passed into the room
where Newman was. She heard no talk,
no conversation of any kind; but beard
three heavy "thugs," and thought Glass wns
splitting kindling. A moment afterwards
Glass came out of the room, without tho
axe, chsed the door behind him, and with
out saying a word, passed out ot tbe house.
Shortly afterwards Ellen McKerney came
upstairs, passed into the room where New
man was, but immediately raised the cry
of "blood ! brains ! murder I" and ran down
stairs and into the street. This was the first
intimation Mrs. McFadden had that a mur
der had been committed.
Dr. C. W. Dunning testified that the wound
on tho head of deceased was undoubtedly
the cause of death, and that it might have
becninfiicted with un axe.
Upon this testimony the jury very prop
erly arrived at the conclusion that Carter
Newman had come to his death from blows
upon the head inflicted with an axe in the
hands of Charles Glass, and that the killing
