Colvmdi'8, Ga., December 10. On
Wednesday, one week ago, Stephen God
win, a wealthy stock-raiser, was found
dead oi his bed with hi head crushed.
Mrs. Gregory, his housekeeper, was lying
dead on another bed with a fracture In
her temple, and Dick Gregory, her son,
was found lying dead from a similar
wouud. There were no ulgDs of robbery.
There was but one clue, and that was to
follow some buggy wheel tracks which
led along the banks of the Flint River
southward. A Dr. Falrchlld, who had
been out professionally during the night,
declared that he bad met a buggy, and
that Its occupants were Moses Keaton,
his wife and child.
THE PIRSCI.VO PARTY,
aided by dogs to keep the scept, pushed
the chase through swamp aud morass
along tho Georgia line and through Flori
da and back again, until just ouuldc of
this city tho hounds suddenly came to a
fctand, and a colored woman, babe in
and unable to move. A little way into a
clump of bushes, wis seen a colored
man who was recognized as Moses Kea
ton, the murderer, on the return trip.
Keaton has fully confessed the crime, lie
Implicates several others, uml says rob
bery was the cause of the horrilile deed.
KEATOX'S WIFE CONFESSES.
A coufessiou made by the wife of Moses
Keaton, alias Bill .Jackson, is as follows:
About eleven o'clock on the night of
December 2d, Moses Keaton aud wife, aud
another negro named l'ete, went to Ed
win's bouse for the purpose of robbing
him. The woniau protected, but her hus
band drew a knife and told her if ihe did
Dot stand at the gate of the front yard
and give warning of any ap
proach he would kill her. The
Men theu utteiiipt to force an entrance,
but alarmed Godwin, who called to know
who it wa-i. He. wu answered by Moses,
w! o said: "It's me, Mr. Godwin", rue and
l'ete. We's been out 'possum buntin'
and got cold, uud thought we womd come
by and see if your lire had gone out."
Godwin opened the door and let them in
t the room to the fire and went to bed
again, but instead of remaining awake to
let them out aunlu he went to sleep, and
by his own flre they
PLOTTED 1118 MtRtlF.lt.
A knife aud au axe were used to do tire
ex'-cutlon. Go.iwiu was dispatched first
and then young Kicbard Gregory, and
both were murdered while asleep, but
when the negroes came to Mrs. Gregory
she awoke and a struggle ensued. Mrs.
Gregory begged for life, ut finding the
(lends remorseless she fought for It. Her
(druggies were useless however, and soon
she was a mangled corpse at the feet of
the murderers. Her body was so bruised
and backed with knife and axe as to be
almost beyond recognition. The mur
derers searched for booty, but no mon
ey being found they left tho house
COVERED WITH 1II.OOD,
to join the woman outside, and went to
the woods with a horse and buggy,
Moses remarking that there would be
"a-time" In the morning when tho bod
ies were discovered. When remon
strated with by his wife he ordered her
to Oe silent and said be would do the
same thing over again. Moses' accom
plice, l'ete, is still at large, and Moses
is not aware tb:it bis wife has made a
confession. Ho is a youug black negro,
aged twenty, and an ordinary Held
band. Ho manifests Indifference, but
when he arrives at tho scene of his
crime It is not probable ho will bo al
lowed much time for repentance.
