'Harder Will Ont."
Palestine. Tex . Mav 4. Tho old
niWfi. "murder will out." has been
startlingly verified hero to day by tho
arrest ot an aired man ana citizen lor
an assassination which occurred twen
ty-ore years ago. One sunny morning
about that timb two boys on their way
to the mill found by the roadside tho
body of young Polk Abies, riddled
with bullets and lying at the edge of a
little glade, seven milles west of Pales
tine. His right boot was puuea on ana
it. wan known that ho had been naid
the sum of 1400 a few days before.
Robbery was at first supposed to be tne
Ma motive. Youncr Abies was on his
way to a dance at a Mrs. Wright's when
murdered, and parties at tne nouse
heared first a horn blow, then gun
shots, followed by cries of some ono in
distress. A short time after this Bon
MiUm. Oscar Fields and Devil John
Parker appeared at the dance,and thero
is a tridition tnat some woman at tne
party washed blood from Ben Milam's
itnat. Ooava. St'Rnifiinn became rife in
ftiA nniirhborhood. and the further fact
anon tasked out that tho murdered man
was an eye-witness to the driving oil of
a bunch of horses by Henry Fields
and tne party above menuonca, adios
having deteoted them running the
horses across the Trinitv river. The
four men mentioned above were ar
rested,an examining trial was had, and
the parties bound over to await tne ac
tion of the grand jury.
It is surprising to note th) 'rapid
changes of twenty years. In that pe
riod folly thirty people connected one
way or another with tho murder have

in the stillness of the evening, and a
few minutes afterward, Abies appear-

emptied their shotguns and pistols
into his body.

entered tho consulting room of a Lon
