PAUTIOULARS OF THE MUBDEK
OF GENERAL CLAN TON OF
ESCAPE OF THE ASSASSIN.
(From the Knoxvlllo Press amitleraldj
General James II. Clanton, ono of tho
best lawyors and moit popular men of Al
abama, as well as one of tho biavcst and
noblest of men, was shot und instantly
killed by V. M. Nelson, of Clovcland,
Gen. Clanton was. nltcnding upon the
United States Court to guard tho interests
of Alnbama in tho Alabama and Chatta
nooga railroad case, and had never ;nct
Col. Nol'on, who was interested in n caso
now pending in the Supremo Court, until
flvo minutes beforo tho affray occurrod.
After the fatal shot had been fired, tbe
body of Gen. Clanton wns taken into the
back office of the confectionery store undor
tho Lamar Houso, where every effort was
made to restore life, but in vain.
After tho jury wcro sworn In, Tomlinson
Fort, Esq, being sworn, staled to tho jury,
that about ten or fifteen minutes before
six o'clock p.m. ho wns standing nt the
corner of Gay and Cumberland Htrccts,
having Just come out of Hitler's saloon.
lie Jiad just met uoi. u. m. nelson ntu
was walking arm in arm with him, being
an old friend, when ho saw Gen. Clanton
with a dark whiskered gentleman (Col. A.
S. Prosscr) on tho other side of the street.
They crossed ovor and met them nnd ho
introduced Gen. Clanton U Nelson with
the remark thnt Nelson had fought "us"
(Foit was In tho Confederate army and
Clanton also), but hnd been very 'liberal
nnd honornblo towards his Into enemies.
Co'. Nolson or Gen. Clanton proposed to
go and tako a drink. Col. Fort thinks Col.
Nebon mudo tho proposition. Ac they
walked along tho talk turned in some way
an amusements, nnd Col. Nelson remnrked
that bo could show. Clanton something,
good If ho wns not afraid.
Gen. Clanton said:' "Do you think I'm
Col. Nobon said, "I don t know whether
you aro or not."
Tho saino remark wero repeated several
timeSjNolsou apparently becoming excited
but lien, uinntun was cool. Jfort put nis
hand on Nelson's shoulder, who was under
tno intlue.nco ol liquor, and said Mleep
cool, Davo. You aro In tho wrong. There
is no use in uguiing."
At length.ns Nelaon repented, "I don't
know wholhor you aro afraid or not," Gen
eral Ulnnlon said :
"Woll, if you think I'm nfraid just try
mo. Namo your friend, time, placo and
distance, any timo or nny placo."
Col. Nelson said this was as good a timo
and placo us any.
Gen. Clitnlon snid, ' Fort, step otf tho
erutind for your friend.
Col. Fort refused to do so, ns both wcro
friends nnd there wns no cause for n quar
rel. While ho was talking with Gen. CImii-
ton Col. Nulsonluul gone Into .hitler's sa
loon, nnii, tin no was urging uianion tu go
oil" as Nelson was tliuuk, Fort heard tho
door of the St Nicholas open. : Jio looked
and saw Col. Nelson with a doublc-barr. 1
gun coming out. He thought Nelson fired
tho first shot, and, as ho fired, Clanton
lovclodhis pistol, cocked it, and tired.
Nelson ntouco Died again, and after thu
shot Clanton fell forward, doubling him
self tin on his hands and face.
Wo loarn that Col. Nelson, immediately
after iho fatal sh6t, procured a horse and
fled across tho country. Tlio last heard
from him was nt 11 o'clock last night
Ho was ronort"d to havo passed tho toll-
gato near Judgo Temple s bouse, on tho
Kingston plko, throe miles ahead of Sheriff
