A Glance at the Bitter Truth Which Led
to the Slaying of a Loath
1 diana I'OLis, Isd., September 25.
Tlie cxcltetueDt and general public Inter
est over the killing of. Major Edwin Hen
ry by Captain E. A. Jobnsoo, at Hays
vllle, Tcnn., Tuesday evening continues
to be manifested here, where the parties
were so well and favorably known. It
will be remembered that Mrs. Johnson
committed suicide last December on ac
count of the scandalous developments in
connection with herself and Major
Henry. To those who know Mrs.
Johnson as a highly-cultivated, modest
lady of Christian character, the story
of her downfall came with crush
ing force. It was absolutely appalling.
Captain Johnson, her husband, whose
pathetic statement was furnished onr
readers yesterday, was Supervising Ex
aminer of Tennessee and North Carolina,
wit'i headquarters In Greenville, Tenn.,
he i he was joined In April, 1383, by his
vtifo and son, the latter a boy of four
teen. Mrs. Johnson remained with
lier husband uutil some time lu Sep
tember. Shortly after her arrival
in (jrcetiville she made tho acquaint
ance of Major Edwin Henry, and he
I'KESSEU m.S ATTENTIONS
upon her. - Captain Johnson's dates
compelled his abs-nce a great deal dur
lui; tbu summer, aud Major Henry found
the opportunity to constitute himself
Mrs. Johcson's gallant and protector,
aii'! he made her Ids confidant. For
eighteen years he had lived apart from
h s wife, she residing in F.ushing, N. Y ,
aud heeulisted Mrs. Johnson's sympathl s
b his lonely and forlorn condition, ll itv
h- abused her conlldence, she tells in her
le-iers to her husband, which, though
published at the time of the trial, will
now be read with renewed iuterest. The
Etory they tell is simply heartbreaking.
After Mrs. Johnson's suicide suspicion
was t.irown upon her husband, and be
was compelled by order of court to pro
duce his wife's letters. The first letter
read,as follows :
November 19, 1883.
"MyDf.ak Husband: Your letter of
tlia l'tb came this momiuj; just lu time
to save the last act in the scene of life
w.tn me. I have everything prepared,
aud to-night would have been the sleep
which kuows no waking on earth with
me. The only consideration which lias
deterred me before was, that then
all would be known, and for
Griffith's sake, more than anything
else, I wanted to see if there was
no alternative not to save my life, no,
never, for one moment. I would have
beeu willing to endure ajs eternity of woe
If I could have saved you and him. The
reason that I have implored you to let
me see you all the time, was that I
thought to you alone I could- tell the
truth. The most unaccountabie part of
the ower possessed over me, was that
so long as I was in G. I could not see
and feel this as I knew I should. I re
proached and wondered to mvself, but
t very effort and etermlnatiou I made
seemed of no avail.
I WAS POWEHLKSS.
I will tell you the troth as I know and
feel it to be such. There was never la
any way by word oi deed any Improper
advance made to me until you and G.
had gone to N. C. His manner and con
versation were kind, and such as to gain
my confidence, such as I would feel
toward one so much older than myself,
and in a position, as I thought, to make
any improprieties Impossible. After you
left he constituted himself my guardian,
coming to take me to meals and various
other attentions which I did not receive
without 6ome protest, as Mrs. G. and
others could attest If they would. He said
you had left me in his care, and I answered
I did not believe it, because you knew I
could take care of myself ; still he per
severd. I was too confident. One day
after you had been gone some days, In the
afternoon, ho came into my room. I sat
ou tbe sofa, and he was ou a chair near
the bureau. I was occupied in some
way, not looking up ("there had been
nothing said to alarm me), when I felt
an Influence, and looking up met his eyes
fixed ou me and his lips moving. When I
looked up he moved on the sofa, took my
hand and stroked it.. I said: 'Don't,
Major, you can't mesmerize me; thathas
been tried before,' and ho merely said:
'Not,' and kept my hand, aud put the
other on my bead aud drew it toward
him. I felt
MY WILL GIVING WAY,
and begged him to desist, but ho kept
me; aud, though the door was wldo open
and I knew any moment I' might be ex
posed, I ceuld not help it; but there was
nothing criminal "
When tho wronged husband, who knew
of his shame from his fourteen-year-old
son, tbo boy having intercepted a note
passing between his motber and her se
ducer, wrote back to bis wifo urging her
to tell the whole truth, she made a full

"May God help me, uud you too, my
husband. As I toid you, there was noth
ing except what I told you in my room
before you camo home from N. C. Then,
after our interview in your room I did in

him entirely, but he sought an opportunity
In the ofllce to speak to me. 1 toid him
I could not talk with him, and that our
relations as frlcuds must cease. Then
ho commanded me to meet him In the
parlors to come to an understanding

again compelled me to go to the parlor,
and sat by me on the sofa. He talked to
me thero about his feelings toward me;
Bald It was pure heart love; that It was
not patslon. I tried to release myself,
and besought him to let mo go. I strug
gled to free myself, but all at once he
seemed changed; passion came Into his
face, aud ho
KOKCED ME DOWN ON THE 80KA,
and 1 escaped to my room, and after that
I did not meet him in the parlor, except
with others, except accidentally several
times. After that I felt he had me iu his
power. Still I did try to resist his fur
ther encroachment. I refused to sit on
tho porch with him, except when you or
others were there, and then he com
menced to coine to my room. I besought
him again and again, to keep away. Ho
would promiso to doi so, but would re
turn Oh, Eddie,
you do not know how hard this Is.
I could have told you; but to write
it out is torture. Now, you will remem
ber your promise; that It Is to you
alono the confession Is made It is
worse than death. I have tried to an
swer your letter fully. If I could see you
I would te.l you every little thing. I re
ceived your telegram yesterday. Do yeu
think you should have sent that! I told
you before that I would tell you. Oh,
Eddie, have pity ou me! I have suffered
the tortures of hell. I don't believe they
could be wo se. I never could have been
guilty of my own freo will. 'My God!
why did you forsake me?' his been my
cry ever since. Spare nu! I was not bad.
I am not vicious. Think of the past.
Oh, don't cast me off! I am
VIRTUOUS IN HEART.
If I had been situated differently it
could not have happened. As soon as I
was free I could not be Induced to return
to him. I never could receive anything
lrom him in any way. Oh! save
me, my dear husband 1 save me, and help
me save my soul Was
there ever such a life as mlno has been
the past few months, particularly since
my return borne; indeed, since I-left
G. I have beeu living two separate
lives one quiet, full ot homely duties;
the other lull of misery, excitement,
torture, despair, with hardly a gleam in
the darkness. It is only God's mercy
that has sustained me at all. Oh, papa,
what is it all for how and why is it? I
could never havo dreamed of such a fate
don't say you are dead to me; you are
my only hope. You seem to think that I
have a fteiing that may bind me to him.
I have told you I would never see him
voluntarily, aud he could never influence
me now. I know
HIS HOLD IS LOST,
and could not be recovered. It never
could have been if I had known my dan
ger. I am waiting in an agony of sus
pense to hear from you, and understand
your motives and iutentions. I havo
done as you requested given up every
thing iuto your hands. I trust you with
every defense I have. I send you all the
letters you have written, all tho
promises you have uinde. I leave my
self nothiug, not even the few kind
words that were to me so precious in
them. Yes, I have brought on you a
hard fate, but what is mine? While you
will have sympathy I will have con
demnation, for who ever heard of sym
pathy with a woman under such circum
stances, uo matter what her plea. Her
only defense is proved innocence, and
that is doubted. If you can only feel
that I am with you In every effort to
save all posslb e for our boy's sake, and
that I w.ll not s-p&rj myself, or be de
terred by any other consideration.
You can now feel I am with you,
aud trust me a little. I wish you would
tell me how you are. I have suffered so
much thinking of you at night, and In the
morning when 1 awake. My greatest
comfort has been in my dreams. They
have been of you, so constantly cheer
ing. It may be without any reason, but
I could not but hope, and sometimes I
bud that I am with you in spirit, so I al-
most feel I have seen you, and I have
never been able to consent to a prospect
of the future without you. It seems im
possible. Good night, my poor love,

son, four years old, aud two girls named
Lizzie Collins aud Fraukie lieynolds.
Tho news of the murder and suicide
rapidly spread throughout the city and
Created a profound sensation. Upon an
examination it was fuuud that the ball
had entered Garduer's brain, and little
could be done to stop the How of blood
with which his life was slowly ebbing
away. Tho wife may recover, but It is
The girls say they know of no cause
for tho deed, as Mr. and Mrs. Gardner
have always lived peacefully together,
and they have never noticed any trouble
At nine o'clock last night Mr. Gardner
was still alive, but in a very critical con
dition, with no hope for his recovery.
Mrs. Gardner, though In a precarious
condition, was also alive, but too weak

diate surrender. The jailer had antici
pated this visit aud appearing at the
window, told the vigilantes th t
he had a number of determined
guards with him to defend
the jail, aud they would certainly fire
upon any person who attacked them.
Alter a brief consultation tho vigilantes
concluded to retreat, but before doing so
their leader rode up to the window aud
angrily declared they would return with
in a night or two with reinforcements
and hang the three murderers. Tho jailer
was threatened with severe punishment
if he allowed the prisoners to bo removed

neighborhood where Cisco lived are de
