informed tho conductor of what had hap

ordored the return of the train to tho

TUB COUNTY COURT ANll THE UAIlOLAY
Somctlmo ago, a citizen from tho vicini
ty of Puducah was found dead a short dis
tance from Cairo, lying by tho sldo of tho
Illinois Central railroad, nnd by his sido
was standing n flask half full of whisky.
Coroner Gossman summoned a jury, of
which Mr. James Ryan was tho foreman.
After consultation, tlio jury rcfucd to find
a verdict before tho liquor in tho bottlo
had been nnalyscd, and accordingly they
visited tho drug storo ofljarclay Hrolhcra
whero the foreman of tho Jury (of
course with the knowledge of tho coroner)
requested the firm to analyse tho whl'ky
and send tho bill to tho county court. Tho
bill rcudred thorcfor amounted to $20, a
not exorbitant, in fact n very rcasoiiablo
chargoj but tho county court, with that air
of nonchalance so characteristic, of its pro
ceedings that utter carolcsncs of tho
feelings of all who approach into its pres
ence which particularly marks it a a "big
Iujin " body endorsed tho bill : " Rejec
ted, the coroner not having authorized tho
analy.ution.'' In reply to this " tling " at

In explanation wo would state that t'io

tho jury, cumo to our storo with tlio bottlo
of whisky, and ordered tho analysis. Alter
remaining sevorul hours thoy adjourned to
meet tlio next day, during which time tlio
analysis was nimln. Upon re-assembling
and receiving tlio samo they mado up their
verdict nnd signed it, requesting us to scud
in our bill.

Wo cannot understand how any person
can como to tho conclusion that ISa relay
Brothers aro not entitled to pay for tlio

It was dono for tho county, in order to en
ablo a coronor's jury to come to an intelli
gent conclusion in regard to tho dentil of
an unknown man, n fact well known to
the the county court, and thoy should be
paid for it by tho county. It may bo that,
technically, tho C. C. has tho law on its
sido, but justico is on tho sido of tlio Ii. Hi.,
and wo can sco no reason why the county
should reject the bill in such an insulting
manner, unless for the purposo of gaining
a reputation for strictness in procedure
that would shame the supremo court of
tho United States and a cheap reputation
parsimonious that it leans upon
tho side of dishonesty.

THE WETAUG MURDER,
lRTICULARS OF THE COLD
A LIFE TAKEN FOR TWELVE
DOLLARS AND A-HALF.
ARREST AND CONFESSION OF THE
Sinco writing tho brlof notlco of tho
murder which was committed near Wc
taug latoly wo havo rocdlvcd from Chief
Myers tho particulars of the atTair.
On tho morning of tho day on which tho
murdor was committed, four mon got into
ft wagon nt Ullln with tho Intention of
passing ovr tho country to Popo county.
Tho names of tho threo who took part in
tho tragody wero Dodd, tho victim, a res
identof McCrackon county, Kontucky.and
Bngloy nnd Shullloborry, residents of Popo
county, in this state. Tho namo of tho
other momber of tho party, and who was
thodrivor of tho team, wo did not learn.
After tho wngon had proceeded a few
milos Bagloy nnd ShullloborrT, who evl
dontly bolloved Dodd had money on his
person, induced tholr victim to get out
with them und walk. IJeforo tho travel
ers reached Wctaug, Bagley and Sliuflle
borry managed to quarrel with Dodd und
assaulted him, when ho ran nway from
them. Arriving nt Wotntig, ho mado in
quiries for an officer, saying that hu
needed protection. Wliilo ho was making
this statement to a citizen, Bagley and
Sliuflleborry approached, whon ho ran as
fast in ha could up thu track of tho rail
road. Just then the wngon enmn up nnd
ono of tho murderers got into It, wliilo tho
other pursued Dodd up the track. Seeing
ono of his pursuers in a wagon, and fear
Ing that ho might be "headed otr," I)ld,
nfter running ubout a niilo turned nnd
sought to retrace hi steps; but was met
by one of ills pursuers, nnd wliilo ho was
ecoking to elude him, tho other nsa.sin
nttaeked him. Ho was soon disposed of.
Tlio murdorors thou placed tho body on
tho track, ami decamped; but curiosity
brought ono of them to the scene of the
murdor, whoro ho witnessed tho loeomo
tivo run over tho body of his victim. Ho
then coolly boarded the train, whero ho
was arrested, and gavo Information which
led to tho arrest of his companion in guilt.
Tho miscreants aro now In tho jail of Un
ion county, but will doubtless escapo un
whipped of justice. Murderers always
do in Egypt. Tho lawyers havo n pecu
liar gift which enables thorn by n twist ol
tlio wrist to postpono trials, chango the
venue, convince juries, nnd in other ways
that are dark and by tricks that aro vain
bring ovory blood-stained wretch from un
der tho gallows, and sond him on his way
rejoicing to slay again. And, as a matter
of course, Ilagloy and Shufllobcrry will
not bo tho exception to this rule. A mild
dosoof penitentiary is all wo can in our
wildest expectations, predict for them.
