An Oil Can and a Pick-Axe, Tell the
Awful Methods Employed by
Augusta, Me., September Ij. A most
foul murder was committed last night la
the Superintend Ofllce of the Augusta A
Somraervllle Street Kullway of this city.
William Vales, an aged white man and
iilght watchman ot the company, was
fouDd this morning dead in the olllce with
a fearful contusion on the back of bis
head, and the body burned to a crisp.
By him lay a plck-axe and an oil-can
showing the terrible weapons used to
compass the murder and the method by
which Its perpetrator endeavored to wipe
oat all vestige ol the brutal deed. The
body had been saturated with o 1 and set
on tire, burning It almost to a cinder
from bead to leet and burning holes Into
the floor beneath him The object, evi
dently, was to burn down the bonding,
and the conflagration was only stopped by
the pools of blood which saturated the
space about the dead man's body.
A desk near by was prted open and thirty
eight dollars were taken off. Vales, who
was over sixty years of ae, was making
the rounds of the premises at the time
and probably was about to wind bis
watch at eleven o'clock, as the last
puncture in the dial showed half-past ten.
There Is no clew to the murder, which
was evidently performed by some one ac
quainted with the place. Two arrests
have been made, and there is much in
dignation in tne neighborhood. The
Coroner's Jury nn commenced the In
quest and adjourned till to-morrow.

by Rev. Dr. Joyce, the Sheriff and his
deputies, lie was asked by Sheriff Haw
kins If he had auything to Bay. Johnson
"My iriends (though I don't suppose I
have many friends here) I want to say to
you that I feel that God has forgiven my
sius, and, although I am Innocent of the
charge preferred against me, I die for
giving everybody. I hope to meet you In
Deputy Kleeman then pat the black
cap over his face; the rope was adjusted
and Sheriff Hawkins pulled the lever.
The drop fell at 10:06. He was cot down
at 10:22, when life was extinct, his neck
being broken by the fall. Johnson was
firm throughout, and astonished every
body by h.s bravery. About 300 persons
witnessed the execution.
for which Johnson was banged was the
ki ting of the Taylor lamlly, consisting of
Beveny Taylor, an old negro, aged sixty
two, his wife, aged fifty-nine, and their
granddaughter, aged eleven, near Avon
dale, for the purpose of selling their
bodies to the Ohio Medical College. On
the night of February 15 last, Allen In
galls and Johnson went to the cabin while
the family were yet sitting about the fire,
rushed in and dealt Mrs. Taylor a blow
on the head with a club. She was given
a second blow, and fell to the floor dead.
Old man Taylor rose to his feet, lifted
both arms and moaned: "What
have we done? What have we
done?" and was knocked senseless. The
brains of the little girl were dashed out
with the same terrible weapon. The old
man revived and attempted to rise, bat
Johnson's iron grip was about bis neck,
and he was Boon choked to death. The
three were then beaten over the head un
til life was known to be extinct. The
bodied were stripped of their clothing,
thrust into sacks and taken to the Ohio
Medical College and dumped on the floor,
and the explanation glveu that they bad
been killed in a railroad accident. In
galls committed suicide by hanging in
his cell, April 30th.

are again agitated over a scandalous
affair. Mr. James Redpath has long been
jealous ot his young and handsome wife

pose of Matching his wife's movements
during bis supposed absence. He accord
ingly proceeded some distance until outof
sight of the House, when be took a cir
cuitous route back to within a short dis
tance of hU home, and, climbing up
into the heavy foliage of a large hick
ory tree, he perched himself on a limb
aud waited developments. He had been
in the tree but a short time when his sus
picions were confirmed, by seeing bis
wife and William Randall, a cousin, ap
proaching from opposite directions.
They met directly under the hickory
tree In full view of the much-abnsed hus
band. Mr. Redpath, after being con
vinced ot his wife's guilt, drew a revolver
and fired at the pair, who fled to their re
spective homes, frightened beyond ex
pression. The husband returned early In
the evening, as though nothing unusual
had taken place.
After supper, when the family were
gathered in the sitting-room, William
Randall, who was passing at the time,
was called In. At the proper moment
the husband related his adventure lu
the hickory tree, greatly to the sur
prise of the wayward wife and dishon
orable cousin. Mr. Redpath will bring
an action for divorce.
