Colonel K. T. Johnson, Special United

had his he al quarters at this place, and
wbo-e wife killed hersell at Indiana
I'olis on account of supposed criminal
Intimacy with Colonel Ed. Henry, to-day
killed Henry at Hiysville, thus carrying
out his threat. Johnson left this place
last night about nine o'clock In company
with a colored man In a bugty, armed
with a double-barreled 6hot gun, and.
went tho distance of twelve miles, found
Hei.ry In his store and fired upon him
without warning, the tlrst shot taking
tffuct In hU body, and the second In the
trmp!e. llenry died Instantly. Otlicers
who had con.; la pursuit, met Johnson
returning to town in a hack In custody
of Thomas Snapp to whom he surrend
ered. ' I.vMANAi'OLis, lsi., September 24.
Information was received hero last night
that 'Captain K. T. Johnson, formerly
of this city, had shot and killed Major
Kdwin Henry at Kaysville, Term., clos
ing thus ono of the most remarkable
domestic tragedies In the history cf this
c.untry. Captain Jobnaon resided for
many years In this city and was
hlgh'y respected as d lawyer and
as a citizen. lie Is at present
a Special Agent of the Pension
Uurean, with headquarters at Greenville,
Tenn. The homicide grew out of Major
Henry's relations with Mrs. Johnson,
who committed suicide about one year
aso on account of the scandal her actions
had developed. About nine months i
Captain Johnson conllded the story of
his troubles to a friend, and the state
ment is remarkably pathetic. It reads as
My office was In a small one-story
frame building, around the coraer from
the hotel entrance. The little building
consisted of two rooms, both opening ou
the sidewalk. One was large, the other
small. They did Dot connect. There was
a door between, but it was nailed up. I
had the large room. The other and
smaller room was occupied as a sleeping
room by a man named E iwln Henry.
This ruin, known as Major Henry, in
early life married a lady of wealth and
position at F.ushlng, N. Y". At the close
of the war she and a brother, with other
friends invested a large amount of mon
ey in a new furnace 2 or 15 miles
south of Greenville. Her husband was
employed In, some subordinate capacity
about the furnace. The enterprise
failed, and Mrs. llenry drew out what
was left of her capital and took it home,
but left her nusbaud In Tennessee, where
be has ever since remained. He has two
grmvu daughters, ono living with her
mother at Flushing, N. Y., the other one
married and llTiug at Passaic. Ho Is
sixty-three years old. For eighteen years
he has lived about Greenville alone.
Soon after my family arrived at Green
ville Henry came to see me at my room
when I wa3 in bed sick, and I Introduced
elm to my wife. After that he came in
frequently, always offering some little
service or attention to me. After my re
covery his visits still continued, and he
and Mrs. Johnson were fast becoming
friends. One evening after tea she was1
fljing herself at the glass to go out, and
1 asked her where she was going.
Sho said she and Major Hen-,
ry wero going out for a walk.
They went out over the hill and
through tho woods north of the town,
and returned after dark. Tho next Sun
dy evening they went to church together.
Ou this occasion, alter their return, I
spoke to her on the subject. I told her
It would ba better to treat him with some
reserve; that be was a great old bore, and
If not discouraged would get to bd
trooblesomo and hard to get rid of. TbN
admonition was not heeded. I always
went to bed early, and ho
CONTWCKD TO Tilt 11KR OUT
for evening walks, and sometimes to tho
Ice cream saloon after I was In bed.,
Soon after she e&rno to Greenville I
bought and presented to her a handsome
horse and buggy, Shu soon formed the
bablt of taking early morning horse
back rides. I learned afterward that
llenry would, ride oat to tho edgo of
town and Join her on these occasions,
and they would rMe together, returning
Jooe 16lh, my official duties calkd do,
to North Carolina. My son went with
e, and wo were absent ten days. On.
my return I reareed that Henry's atten-i

her lu aud forbado her leaving our
room again during tho evening.
I told her what I had heard. I
reminded her of my former remon
strances, and told her I regarded It my
duty to be positive, and that I intended
to put a stop to llonry's attentions to
her, even If violence were required to do
It. Ou account of my nervous and dull
cato health I slept alono In one of our
rooms. My wifo and little sou slept
together lu the other. The door between
us was always open. That ulght, after I
thought Griffith was asleep, I called my
wife Into my room, and sho took her
place by my side, and I talked with her
lor fully two hours about
UK It KKLATIOSS WITH IlKXItY.
Sho said she could not understand how
anybody could think of anything wrong
In the case, or how it was possible to at
tribute to a man of Henry's ago any Im
purity of motives. I replied that It was
a great mistake to imagiue that his ago
was a guarantee of the purity of his mo
tives. The very Immunity afforded by
his age made him more dangerous than ai
younger man. I nrged, alo, that If hU
motives were honorable be would never
by Indiscreet conduct Jeopardize her rep
utatl n as he was doing; that his con
duct showed him to bo unprincipled, and
justified the grarest distrust of nis mo
tives. "Intimate association with a
handsome, attractive young woman like
you sets him beside himself. Everybody
sees that he la madly In love with you,
and uext tbey will be saying that you are
madly In love with him."
She declaimed having any such fcoliug
for him, but admitted that he had won
her geuuioe sympathy. Ho was without
friends or companions, and had hardly an
associate; he had to some extent made
her his confidant, and seemed deeply
gratified to havo her confidence and com
passion, and sho thought It very hard
If the little comfort sho could afford
him in such circumstances was to be for
bidden. To this I replied with considcrablo
alarm that she had contracted a most
daugirous state of fueling. I told her I
should speak to llenry and forbid his
furthert calls upon or attention to her.
She begged me not to do so, declaring
that such a course wou d cause her great
mortification, and promising to heed my
UHIt BOY OVEIlIIEAltD.
The next morning after this Interview
at the breakfast tibie I observed on the
countenance of my son an expression of
the greatest sadness. Apprehending the
cause, 1 said : "Griffith, were you awake
last night? Did you overhear the con
versation between your mother and int'r"
He rep. led, with a choking voice; "I
heard every word." After breakfast,
when we r. turned to our room, he threw
his arms around her tuck aud, with a
flood of tears, said: "Oh, mamma,
maiu'ua, don't love Major llenry! ll
cau never love you as papa aud I love
you. oh, mamma, stay with us and let
Late that night, after Griffith was
asleep, I again called my wife to my
room. Taking her In ray arms, I told tier
I found I had been too severe, and that
possibly I bad made upon her mind two
erroneous Impressions, one that I was
jealous; the other, that I had lost confi
dence In her. "I begged her to reject ootl-,
these Impressions. I said: "The ono
thing I have dreaded Is that your name
might be connected with a scandal,
which I believe
WOULD KILL ME.
I know you are absoletely Incapable of
criminality, even In thought, but you
have always been tenderly shielded from
tempting Influences, and are wholly with
out experience in the cruel ways of
worldly men. Your sentiments have
never before been tempted. Your
strength to retain thein within your
control Is untested. Your love for me
and for Griffith, great as it is, may prove
wholly Insufficient as a counter force.
Think of the Christian example of your
dead motner, of your aged father, ot our
little grave at Crown Hill, of tho noble
boy asleep yonder In your" room; come,
as of old, to your husband's arms; bring
yeur whole heart, with all its longing-",
all its sentiments, here. This Is the only
course of security or of happiness." In
tho wbolo course of our married life there
was never a tenderer, sweeter moment
than when we parted that night.
Tho next night again I was awake late
Into the night. My whole .soul was
aroused by the bodeful aspect of tho situ
ation. Tue danger of my wife being
compromised, tho thought of even a
fragment of her affection being else
where bestowed, stirred me to the lowest
depths, for no wife was more tenderly,
more entirely or more deeply loved. It
was near midnight when, overwhelmed
by those feelings, I arose aud went to her
bed. Sho was asleep with her hand un
der her cheek and her hair scattered over
her pillow. I canght her up to my heart
FASTENED MY MI'S TO IIKHS.
Then I kissed her checks, her forehead,
her eyes. Thero was not a space upou
her whole face large enough for my lips
to rest upon that I did not press a kiss.
Again and again I kissed down her eye
lies and clung to her Hps. She put up
her arms and returned my caresses.
Without a word being spoken by either,
I returned to my bed and slept.
The next day, while my son and I
were in my office alone, ho spoke to me
of the trouble, aud I took him fully into
my confidence. I was careful to Im
press upon him that I had not tho
slightest doubt of his mother's integrity.
He understood tho case exactly; and
he realized as fully as I did the import
ance of keeping the jewel of her love In
our own possession. He thought tho
matter could be best ended by sending
her home. I sent him to teil her of his
conviction. She would not consent.
For several days we urged her to come
home, but could not prevail npon her to
come. Griffith and I counseled together
fully as to what should be done. A
it was a case ot external attrac
tion, I realized and explained to
him that the treatment required was
counter attraction. We
KISSED FIHR FONDLY.
on retiring at night; we woke her with
caresses in the morning. We sat by hot
with her hands in ours; at every meal
she walked to the dining-room between
ns with our arms around her; we walked
and drove with ber; wo took her out on
our little hunting excursions; we Oiled
her room with flowers; we decorated ih t
the walls with pictures and small statu'
ary . Wo gave her nomeroes trinkets and.
exquisite little articles for her toilet. Ia
a word, we tried by every postdWe meani
to gratify ber .tastes anA make her Ut
and realize oar love. It was a deter
mined flgbl to save an tdolired wife and
meUwr. And it was well nigh socccas
him." Wo all treated him with changed
manners, and hoped he would understand
its m-aulng. It. was just at this mo
ment that, us shu describes lu tho same
letier, he conim mded her to meet him in
tho parlor. It was thero also that ho
wrote mo a letter, asking why our man
ner toward him had changed. In reply I
invited hi in Into mv office and talked
to him In tho piaino.-t terms. I told him
that when ho , desired to see me I
would bo glad t havo til in call at my
office; thit I had no objection to his cail
Inn at my rooms when I was there, but
tint I d.sired his visits to my wife to
cease; that I did not doubt my wife, nor
did I wish to question his motives, but
that his attentions to her would subject
her to unfavorable reflection, and must
Tills, to all outward appearances, was
the end of their relations. Their meet
ings on tlio porch, their walks In public
and his visits to our rooms ceased, and I
began to feel that tha danger was over.
V nat a mistake! I had only
DIUVKX THEM TO SECKECY.
Soon after this official duty took me to
Knoxvllle and Jouesborougti, and I was
absent about two weeks. Tho mental
and nervous depressions consequent upou
my troubles proved disastrous to my
general health. I was very 111. It was
ueces.-ary for somo ono to be with mo.
1 tried to prevail on my wifo to ac
company me, but sho was not well, and,
at her Instance, Griffith went lu her
place. At that time llenry was away
on his farm and 1 hid no reason to be
ileVB that ho would return whllo I was
gone. Hut when I returued to Green
vlllo tliu 1st of September ho
was there, and had been for a week or
more preceding my arrival. It was but a
few days.until I had learned that his en
croachments hid been renewed. A few
days alter, on September 14th, my wife
and I left Greeuviito finally and went to
Knoxvllle, to which city my headquarters
had been removed. She remained with mo
at .Knoxvllle two days and then went home.
Duilng these two Jays I received three let
ters from Henry. These letters, written to
me, were evidently Intended for her. They
WKItE LOVE LETTERS
of tha mo t Intense character. He re
ferred to her as that precious, little wifo of
mi no; told how be missed the music of
her cheerful voice, and the sound of ber
g"iitle footsteps on tiio porch; described
his feelings of ut'.er desolation since her
departure, and declared his purpose of
leaving Greenvillo forever, to eseapo tho
utter ioneliuess produced by herabsenee.
Of course ho did not daro address
these letters dnvctly to tier, because ho
knew they wou.d certainly have falleu
into my hands. That tliey were ad
dressed to mo proves tho absolute
lunacy of the man's infatuation. I hand
ed tli ! letters to my wife, and at first
kept silent; but the evening before sho
left for homo I brought tho matter for
ward. 1 told her frankly that what I had
observed at Greenville, together with the
contents of these letters, bad aroused In
my mind tho worst and gravest fears,
and that I r .-gardod it my absolute duty
to return to Greenville ana mako a thor
ough Investigation lnt; her condect. In
all my experience I havo never seen a
look of such
as came Into bjx. face at this announce
ment. 'Late 'that flight, after sho sup
posed I .was. told', shs arose from the
bedvfl-Nwpcil to the window. liaising
tho sasn,'Tfhi!r-1frtt'?Iilng aside the curtain
sho looked for a long ti mo down at the
street below, as if inea-urlng the dls
tauce. Then sho turned and knelt by a
chair as if engaged in prayer. Then sho
sank slowly down upon her face on tho
fijor. After a long time she aroso and
returued to bed. 1 remained quiet until
she was probably asleep, when I wound
my lingers tightly iu the folds of her
gown, !.o that any movement iwould
awaken me, aud so slept a troubled sleep
Instantly upon our departuro from
Greenville, tho scandal burst lutoallame.
Investigation was barely necessary.
Facts of the most terrible character, at
tested by proofs of tho most positive
nature, came to my knowledgo without
being sought; I fought to the very last
for my poor wife's iame, Though tho
evidence was overwhelming, I steruly
maintained her innocence. Tho fiercest
battle was with myself my judgment
"llnal;y surrendering to my love. I put
the balance into her own hand.
Had she denied I would havo taken her
word against the world. Hut theso are
her own words: "I could not bear to
have you leave nie with my last words
to you a falsehood." She confessed tho
aw til truth. Her letters tell the story.
She was not bad. Sho Intended no
wrong. She lost her will under tho ln
fluenoe of a villain, possessed of a
strange power, which God lu his wis
dom has clothed In mystery; sho went
strangely like ono being, led whilo
asleep went Into tho abyss!"
