teu or 13 ieet away talking, 0 or 10 min
utes; they came iuto saloon and Mr.
Uogau called for cigaiv, Mr. Mahoney
passed out; Mr. II gau went back to bil
liard tallies: I came 'round from behind
counter nnd stood at west end until Hogan
turned around and walked toward door;
when Hogan got within step or two of Ar
ter he whipped out pistol, from under his
coat aud placing it within tew inches of
Arter's back, fired. Arter plunged or ran
forward. Alter was sitting with face east
and Hogan approached him from the west.
Hogan aud Mahoney were in full view of
Arter, and on entering saloon passed be
tween me aud Arter. Mahoney retired af
ter getting cigar. Hogan fired immediately
on reaching the screan, without saying any
words to anybody. Nobody but me and
Hogan in the saloon, proper, at the time ot
shooting. Hogan paid for cigars. After
Hogan fired Mr. Arter darted forward, and
Il'igau ran after hiin. Know that Hogan
puiied pistol from under his coat. Don't
know how he l.eid hand as ho approached
Arter. Saw Arter. after I ran up stairs and
looked down shdi way. Col. McKeuig hol
lowed out that better get help thought
Arter was dying. !viw Ids dead body 8 r r
10 minutes afterwards., Saw Hogan and
Mahoney standing near line between our
saloon ana White & Greer's store, talking.
They went into saloon about teu minutes
afterward;. Mr. Arter was then sitting
where he sat when shut. H;ul had a
newspaper. Working men were putting
down flag stone, und Arter was looking at
them. Hogan and Mahomy were iu plain
view of Arter, 8 or 10 minutes. They came
directly to saloon, and passed between Ar
ter and i:ie. the opening being only about
3 feet. Al ter was in his shirt sleeves, think
a white shirt. Witness identified the bloody
shirt exhibited to lr.nl as the one worn by
deceased. Was present at first coroner's in
quest, saw body examined; no weapon was
found on bony, Arter was 48 or 30 years
old, weighed probably 133 or 110. After
Hogan filed t'ust shot, and tried to cock
pistol second time, Iran up stairs to quiet
womenfolks. Mr. Arter had been Hitting
there but a short time before ltogan nnd
Mahoney came up to edge of sidewalk, 1Q
or 13 feet away. Nothing unusual in
gan's manner, when he came to bar; looked
as he always did; known him well for 17 or
18 years and saw him every day.
Ho didn't appear excited or agitated, but
looked and acted about as Usual. Hogan
could not have seen Arter from where he
stood ut counter; don't think he could have
seen him from back part of saloon where
he went when he left counter; ju a
few foot of screen ; stepped out step or two
whipped out pistol from under coat, and
fired. Huvo uhvays bocu on friendly terms
' Upon cross-examination tho witness said
that although Hogan had visited saloon of
ten ho had not drank anything for two
years. Ho bought aud paid for cigars, but
don't know whether ho lighted or not. The
Inst persons in tho saloon beforo nogan and
Mahonoycamo iu, wero Burke, tho plas
terer, and Mr. Arter. They went out in a
minute or two; and witness stood against
sido of door, Arter seated 011 tho other, un
til Hogan and Mahoney entered. Witness
then followed them in nnd waited on them.
After Mahoney left, Ilognu went 45 or 50
feet back, toward the door of tho rear room.
There wero two men iu that room playing
cards. Hogan stopped a short time, turned
around and walked to edge 8f screen, stepped
out from behind it, reached out his arm nud
find. Can't say whether he cocked his
pistol after drawing it or not. If ho did he
did it awful quick. If ho cocked it while
drawing it lie did it much quicker than I
could do. Hogan wus, I believe a county
constable. Had been a day policeman un
der Arter, who wns cheif-of-poliee under
Mayor Winter. Didn't notice position of
Hogan's right hand when he approached
Alter; can't say where it was, until I saw
him draw pistol and fire.
Testified that he was standing in the sand,
probably three feet from Arter, near the
middle of tho saloon door, with his foot al
most against tho door till. First saw Ho
gan approaching from the inside, with his
two hands together in front of his body,
wttli fingers clenched downward as if cov
cring something; think ho then had pistol
in his hand. He took about two steps after
wards, and fired, the pistol being very near
to Mr. Arter's back. Arter whirled his head
around as if to see who had shot him; then
dashed forward, seeming to plunge from
the chair, and run. Hogan followed with
pistol still aimed at Arter. It seemed as if
Hogan and Arter slipped or reeled as they
were running to the stair recess where Ar
ter tcok refuge. I had been standing in
front of the door from 3 to 5 minutes when
Under a cross-examination the witness re
peated that when if! flrts saw Hogan his
hands were together against or near the
body, and clenched downward. Instantly
after Hogan fired Arter looked around, and
dashed forward. Witness couldn't say that
ha heard either Hogan or Al ter say any
thing. The witness then described the
ground plan of the building, and illustrated
the position of the screen across tite door,
etc,, and was then permitted to retire.
Was then called to the Ftaud. Had lived
in Cairo about 18 years; does business on
corner Commercial avenue anil Sixtli street.
Had known both Hogan and deceased fif
teen or sixteen ycais. Ou the 30th cf July
last, about 5 o'clock in the evening, was n
front of Gates' saloon watching workmen
who were laying t'ag-stcnes iu the si.le
waik. Had been there 10 or 13 minutes,
probably when I Uemd n yx.i t of a pistol,
and saw Mr. Arter dart, forward from his
seat in the saloon door, and run toward the
stairway just below, exclaiming "Don't
shoot again '" or "Don't kill me 1" .Mr. Ar
ter was closely tollowed by Mr. Hogan
with a pistol in his hand, aimed nt Arterj
who, with Col. McKeaig had ruii into the
hall of the stairway. Mr. Peter Saup then
seized hold of Hogan, and Matslial La Hue
ran up and arrested Hogan. When I first
saw Arter he was sitting in tho saloon dour
way reading a newspaper, with his face to
ward the street, or a little north of east., I
had been present ten or 'fifteen min
utes when pistol was fired; didn't
see Hogan until he lired on Arter.
Al ter seemed to whirl out ot the chair, and
cried out "Don't, shoot again," or "Don't
kill me,'' nnd rushed into the stairway with
Col. McKeaig. I saw Hogan within two
or three feet of the door; don't know wheth
er he tried to push it open .or not. He was
near the door when Mr. Saup seized hold of
him. lie told Mr. Saup to "Let him
alone." Marshal La Hue 'then' .-im-sled
On cross examination witness repeated
that he had been 011 the ground probably
10 or 13 minutes when Hogan lired upon
Arter; saw Arter the 'moment he arrived;
but didn't see Hogan before the ilring.
COL. CEO. W. Mf'KEAIO
Testified that he pad lived in Cairo about
11 years. Had kuown prisoner and de
ceased ever sence his arrival in Cairo.
On the evening of July 30th last, between
the hours of 3 and 0 o'clock, while on his
vay home, he stopped iu front ot (Sates1
taloon to watch tho process of laying
down Hag stones for it sidewalk.
While passing around the workmen to
gain a point below, saw Charley
Arter silling in the recess of the saloon
door, reading a newspaper. Ho sat facing
the east with Lis back toward the west. I
took my stand below the door leaning
against the show window fenders, ami out
of sight of Al ter. I was 5, (i, probably 10
feet below, and near tho entrance that leads
upstairs.' I heard the report of u pistol,
nnd thinking there was a shooting scrape
going on in tho liar-room, it instantly oc
curred to mo it would bo prudent to get
out of harm's way. Accordingly I hasten
ed tothe stairway hallt wlu n .Charley Arter,
with onus somewhat extended, as I thought
ran against me, tho impetus precipitating
both of us into tho hnllwny. I then dis
covered a bloody spot ou the back of Char
ley's vest rwid ot once concluded that lie
was the wounded man.' It was tliu work of
a second or so to get his legs out of the
way so wo could closo tho door. Charley
then struggled to his feet. I asked him
what was tho matter? He replied that
Ilognu had shot him. I tlieu asked him if
he was hurt much. Charley replied, "Yes
he's killed mo." Ho fell down a second
time, aud recovered his feet ft second timo
"and commenced feeling of tho door fasten
er, as if ho distrusted his security. Think
ing that ho might not bo hurt as badly as
ho supposed, I again inquired if ho was
badly hurt. Ho replied again that ho was
killed; and falling down tho third (line, I
saw from tho palor in his face that ho was
dying. Ho died within fivo or six minutes,
I should think, after tho pistol was fired,
giving tho last gasp as his body was being
removed front the hall way into the saloon.
Arter used no other language in my hear
ing, other than that I have detailed. I ap
peared as a witness before tho coroner's
inquiry that was mado the snmo oveuing
in tho rear of tho saloon; saw tho body
searched. No weapons of any kind were
found. The shot was fired, probably fifteen
or twenty minutes after I got there. Didn't
see Hogan. I may know Mahoney; but
don't recollect seeing him there. Deceased
got upon his feet nnd fell down three times,
before lie died. He died m the stairway;
or nt least, seemed to give but a gasp or
two while the Ijody was undergoing remov
al, from. the stairway to the rear of the sa
loon. I'ETEIt R UT
Was then examined. Lived in Cairo since
18H0; had known Hogan since 1903
and Arter since 1802, knew
both men intimately. I arrived in front of
(rates saloon probably five minutes before
the shooting. Saw Hogan and Mahauey
pass into the saloon; they had to almost
touch Arter in passing in. He was sitting
in a chair in the doorway with a new-paper
in his hand. Alters back was to the
saloon and his face to the street.
I was standing in fr.mtof saloon d or; saw
Mahoney come out of the saloon; shortly
afterwards saw Hogan standing near Arter's
back holding pistol din et'.y over the back
of Arttr's chair. Heard the jeport and
saw the Hash. It was all done in a second.
Arter jumped from the chair, and cried out
"Don't shoot me!" or "Don't kill me:" Arter
wif.i Col. McKeaig plunged into
the stairway, and got the door closed of
partly closed. Hogan followed with pistol
drawn. He was at stair-way door, with
right nriit pressing against door, and pist!
in left hand trying, as I thought, to .shoot
again. (Upon a call for explanation, Mr.
Saup, corrected liim-clf, aim said that Ho
gan w: pressing against door with the
left arm. with the pistol iu the right hand.")
Witness then grabbed Hogan, who sctil'h'd
with him. and ordered him to "let him be."
In passing into the saloon Hogan had to
almost touch the chair in which Arter was
sitting. When he iiiid, the muzzle of the
pistol seemed to be within a very tew inches
of Arter's back not more, probably, than
2 or indies. Don't think I was on the
ground long la-fore Hogan and Mahoney en
tered the saloon. Don't know that I saw
them about there, before they passed into
the saloon. Botto an-1 I went into the
saloon together, and left Hogan and Ma
honey in there. Mahoney came out swn
afterwards: and it was but a short
time until Hogan appeared and fired the
shot. Heard Hogan say nothing exept the
worfis lie addressed to witness to let him
alone. Arter weighed probably 133 or 1 Id
and was probably 4S to 30 vears old I
helped to remove him from the bottom of
the stairs; found him lying with his head
and shoulders against the door, its if to
brace against any one entering. Wc opened
the door, and carried the body out. He
was gasping his last as we entered the sa
loon door with him. I was before the coro
ner's inquest held the same evening, and
searched the body; 1,0 weapons of any
description were found upon it. The
State's Attorney here exhibits deceased's
bloody and powder-burik'd vest, and asks
witness 1! he identifies it as that worn by
oi aased. Witness believed it to la- the
same vest. I helped to cut out tho left
arm hole, a.s shown here, and saw that the
vest was powder bune'd.
On his cross-examination Mr. Saup said
he took hold of Hogan by the arm. I saw
he was excited, and was afraid
lie would siioct someoody. I can t
say that I did not say that
he looked "wild ;" but if I did I didn't un
derstand the meaning. lie was excited,
and trying to get into the door, and I wivs
afraid he'd shoot somebody. He was point
ing the pistol into the door and trying to
get it open. 1 shall not say under oath that
he looked like a wild man. Ho was excited
and nourishing his pistol and I was afraid
somebody get shot. A number of persons
around ; I should say an unusual crowd.
On re-direct examination Mr. Saup said
that when ho saw Hogan and Mahoney in
tho saloon a few minutes before, Hogan
didn't seem excited looked as he he usu
ally looked. The only thing Hogan said to
witness during the whole time was "let me
alone." Ho didn't say he was going to
hurt anybody else, nor did ho try to. as far
iw witness observed;
Court then addressed a tew words of cau
tion to the jury, and ordered nn adjourn
ment until 1 o'clock p. m.
Court re-convened promptly at 1 o'clock.
Was recalled by the prosecution. He wns
not certain whether ho had used the ex
pression that Hogan looked wild. I thiuk
I did not. I want the jury to understand
that I meant that Hogan looked angry, mad
JAMES C. LA II l l;
Was called to tho stand. Had lived iu
Cairo over eight years. Knew Arter seven
years, Hogan six or seven years. Was at
loucc headquarters in Arab cngiuo houso
when he heard pistol report in Gates' sa
loon. Ran. over fast as possible. Saw Ho
gan trying to get in entrance to' stairway.
Seemed to bo somebody inside. Hogan
had bis pistol in bis right hand. Saup had
hold ol him. Hogan surrendered to mo
without resistance, and wo left tho
crowd and repaired to Squire
Robinson's office, where lie gave
1110 hi pistol, (ejdiibits pistol). Tho pistol
is just as it was when I got it. One cham
ber is empty. It is an old-fashioned Colt's
pistol, and shoots caps and balls. I kept
prisoner nt Robinson ofllco probably ten,
minutes, and then conveyed him to the
county jail. Left Hogan in Robinson's
while I went back to learn the situation i f
things. Arter was not quite dead.
On cioss examination Marshal Lalluc
said Hogan surrendered without any show
of resistance or unwillingness. Ttyc wit
ness then being questioned touching' Ho
gan's explanation of the killing, tho attor
neys for tho People objected, and the jury
was ordered out of hearing that the ques
tion might be discussed. It was arranged,
however, that the question would be din
cussed in chambers niter the adjournment
The jury was therefore re-calltd, and
Was placed upon the stand. He testified
that he had known Hogan three or four
years. Didn't see the shooting at Gates'.
It was between 3 audi 0 when he heard ot it.
Witness saw Hogan 111 the afternoon t f
same day. He came over the Mississippi
levee where witness was loading thediit he
hauled to Tenth street. It was 3u0 or COO
feet from the levee. Hogan said to me
"How-die. Will you hold my horse while I
shoot off my pistol? He shot all off but
one barrel, and that failed; but it went off
at the second trial. Ho told me that he
wanted to kill u dog that troubled bint the
other night. Don't know how long it was
until I heard of the shooting of Sir. Arter.
Hogan said he wanted to kill a dog.
On cross-examination he said it wa a
common thing to shoot off pistols over the
lovec. Witness was not able to fix the time
of day when he saw Hogan.
Was called: Have lived in Cairo
13 years. Knew Hogan and
Arter ever since lived here. Win lay
ing fiag stones in front of (Sates' saloen
on evening of July the 30th. Arter was
sitting iu the doorway with a paper in his
hands. He had come there about a hn'.f
hour la-fore: bt hail been there off and r u
nil day. Hogan was on him with a revolver
when I first saw Hogan. When shot. Arter
cried "Oh!'' I caught Hogan by the s'.etvc
as he passed me, and some one hollered U
me to let him go; that he might hurt me.
Arter dashed into the stairway. There was
some one in the stairway with Arter. Me
Nulty came up to Hogan, and Hogan sai l
"let me go; Fin not going to hurt anyone."
Hogan was behind Arter when he fired
the pistojpiery close to Arter's back. It
was done in an instant so quick that I
don't know w hether Al ter jumped after c r
before the shot Don't recollect of seeirg
Hogan before he fired on Arter.
And here, for the present, the Per !c
rested their case.
About 4 o'clock court adjourned until
8:30 this morning, when an examination i f
the defendant's witnesses will be com
menced.' A full .day will prob
ably be consumed in this way;
and a like interval, probably, will be con
sumed by the People iu offering evidence in
rebuttal, and not less tr.an two days will be
consumed in an argument of the c;;-
Hence wo regard it as alt ogether probable
that the case will not be given over to the
jury before Friday noon.
Just received and kept constantly on hand,
Faust's celebrated Diamond Brand, at .10
Ohio Levee, next to Planters' Hou-e.
Oysters served at all hours, day or night.
