Before Justices Bros and Iioblncon.
The prisoner, a young man of about 20
or 22 years we should think, wna brought
up under the caro of the sheriff for pre
llminary examination yestorday afternoon
about 3 o'clock. Ho appeared to bo some
what fndifferont, and though by no means
of a cruel physiognomy, his features, es
pecially his eyes, appeared to bolray a
hasty, passionate temper. To the courtesy
of Messrs. Green and Webb wo are in
debted for permission te extract from their
notes tho most important points or the ex
amination. It need not to be stated that Alfred
Huffman, the prisoner, it tho supposed
murderer of poor Tubbs.
The first wltnctt called was Dr. A P.
Greer, the attending physician, whe testi
fied as follows :
Saw Tubbs about fifteen minutes aftor
be was shot, and wat with him until about
two hours before be died, at his own
(Tubbs') houso. Foundjtbu ball entered
two and one-half or three Inches below the
Inferior scapula, one and one-half inches
from center of spina on tho left
side. Deceased was suffering considerable
pain; gavo him a dosn of morphine, after
which he became more quiet; threw up
blood and contents of ttomach ; was there
about 5 or 0 hours and until about 2 hours
before ho died. Next morning called and
found him dead ; mado a posf mortem ex
amination ; made itcislon in abdomen and
found ball had passed through his ttomach ;
ball struck one of the processes of spinal
vertibra and flattened. I intreduced two
fingers into tho holo which the ball had
made in tho stomach; I took the ball out;
came through middle of left tido about
middle of abdomen; mado no furthor ex
amination; saw where ball cntertd .day
beforo; introduced probe; cause of death,
internal herrmorago caused by shot; found
blood infiltrated into bowels; lower lobe
of left lung affected; ball cut several
blood vessels, caused borrmornge and
death. Think ball ranged slightly down
ward; very little chanco for any man to
livo with tuch injury; toon after I got to
the house I looked at my watch and found
it was 11:13 o'clock; had not been there
long when ho was shot ; suppose, it was
not far from ten minutes after I was
notified until I looked at my watch
When I got thero It. Heater Cliff.
Ilazlowood, Levi Gordon and Tubbs' wife
were present. I have tho ball ball litre
oxhibited, and a round ball likewise the
ball that was Bred was completely flat
ton o J one and being a tritlo thicker ttian
the other. Tho round ball and tho flat
toned ball weighed exactly the tame, two
drachms and eleven grains each. C. Ha
zlewood gavo me the round ball ; he gavo
me tho cartridge, and it wat from a pistol
Tubbs had at the time.
Met Tubbs about ono hour before be was
shot; mt,hlra about one-half or one-quar
ter of a mllo from Gordon's. The place
where l.e livod and where he died was
about a half a quarter of a mile from Gor
don's; didn't seo defendant that day at all.
Passed Hoffman's bouse about 6 o'clock ;
after leaving Tubbs taw dofendant there
then. It' was probably 6 o'clock when I
left Tubbs, and Hoffman's was a mile and
a half thero by the road. Called away af
ter that; not more than 15 minutes after
he was shot till I was theru; did not
tell mo how it happened ; several asked
him that quottion; I expressed opinion
that his pistol had 11 rod; be bowed his
hoad and said that's about the way It hap
penod; if he got well ho would explain it-
He aaid nothing inculpating any ono'
Don't know where pistol was found.
About one hour before ho was shot mot
him coming from Ruth's grocery. One of
Cliff. Uazclewood's boys riding with him.
Cliff, and Jordan arrived about a quarter
past ten, as near as 1 can say.
James Morris 'was coxt examined and
stated as follows: Acquainted with defend
ant, and knew Tubbs before his death. I
and Mr. Heater and Mr. Thompson were
in a meadow ISO yards from whoro he was
shot. I allowed It was Tubbt shooting
just to be doing. Heard tcreamgug ; went
down to where hit wifo lived;
Tubbt tald ho had thot himsolf accidently ;
it wat not long till Dr. Greor came; was
there until he died; about sun-down ;
was there whon ball wat taken out noxt
morning; don't think he said anything
more to amount to anything; think it
wat nearer 11 than 10 o'clock; wat there
with the parties who mado tho examina
tion at tho place next morning; Tubb'i
pistol wat lying on the ground somthing
near where ha was lying when they came
to him, about ten steps from the house;
when 1 camo to tho houso Tubbt wat in
bed. 73 or 7 steps rrom whuro lie wat
thot ; found a patch; there trees but not
much brush ; a man could have been teen
iflookod for close; tbo marks behind a
tmo looked like toes had been
dug into tho ground; grass looked
like ho had been lying down under the
tree right there; could hava shot very
easy from side of tree. lie died Friday
ovoning and wo found this place Sunday
afternoon ; found patching wood where
man was killed, IS feet. It wat gun
patching that had been used ; it was
chocked stuff only common stuff such as
used for aprons ; picked it up and gavo It
to Caublc, and ho gave it to Heater ; put
It in his caro; heard Huffman say if
Tubbs treated or abused him like RufUn
Smutting ono or other would die ; 'twas a
man thero hired before he was killed;
Huffman had a riflo at homo.
Didn't say Tubbs had treated Smithy ;
don't rocolloct what I did say as to time at
former trial ; may have said It was 0 or 4
months ; found marks about treo Sunday
morning. Porton could havo bson toen
from whero Tubbt wat thot ; It was not
more than 5 minutes after the thot till we
got thore ; persons named who wore pres
ent at house hesrd Tubbs say be bad thot
himself accidently; it was a couple of
hours after that ; was pretty well ac
qualnted with Tubbt; think he bad Just
come to neighborhood the night before i
be and his wife not living together; the
marks looked like somebody had been
down on knees and toes and lying down ;
tho person had on shoes or boots, not bare
footed; could lmvo bean torn from house ;
it was 73 or 74 stops ; the placo was hlghor
than tho houts, by ton feet ; troo south
eatl from houso whoro ho was killed ;
Jordans house north west from tho house
whoro he was killed ; startod lo work on
aftor we heard screaming ; tlion wo
thought wo would go.
Hoard report plainly ; didn't think I
over heard a report of a pistol or rovolvor
like that ; supposed it to bo a riflle ; treo
where tracks were seen ton inches through
not enough undorbrusli to hide tho house
Levi Jordan sworn and examined;
Knew Tubbs ; inn nnd Tubbs went up
to wagon shop with wheel and then went
to Rash'e grocery ; Tubbs drinking, and
first thing I knew quarreling with Huff
man ; slnppod him in his faco a tlmo or
two, told Huffman to leavo ; Huffman
took him at his word nnd left ; Tubbs fol
lowed him toward the dump on railroad
Huffman crossed dump nnd Tubbs camo
back into grocery, and in a short
time Rash shut his shop. IUsh went up
and shot his gun four timet; Tubbs and
HasUwood tat near house. Tubbs sent
Scott Haxlvwcod up to Rath to comedown
and let him have tome oysters; Rath
wouldn't como; Tubbs then went on
horseback after him ; Rash cirno down,
and Tubbs had three boxes oysters; I and
Cliff eat one each and Tubbt ono; got on
our horses and went towards my house;
Rath was abcut 200 yards from
grocery whsn firing; Tubbs lay on bed at
my houso for tome time. Tubbs got his
hat and started out ; presently ho came
down road in a lope going cast from my
house; and directly wo heard report of
gun or pistal or whatever it was; it was
in a couple or threu minulet ; wo sat there
aud heard a screaming nnd hollowing, nnd
his wife camo running and said Tubbs
hud got shot or shot himself; when wo
got to Tubbt wo taw his back was bloody .
li wat anting ten or tirteen steps from
houso; Hazlcwood laid bit hands on him
and atked him what was tho matter 7 Ho
taid " I'm thot ; did it myself; take mo in
the houtu at soon as you can ; " wu took
him in the house and seat for doctor ; his
horse was standing with bridle over paling
hitched; was thre whon doctor came; it
was not moro than fifteen or twenty min
ute, or may bo not that long; was there
nearly whole ovening, till lm died ; it was
between 10 and 11 o'clock, when we heard
thot about a mile from Ruth's to where
Tubbs was shot, by straight line; rotd
varies a little; didn't see Huffman havoa
gun at grocory; this was last Friday
week ; as wo went off he carrieJ no gun .
Tubbs cursed Huffman arid flapped him;
told him to leavo there; Huffman left:
it might havo been some where
about 8 er 10; don't think we wore 20
minutes going from Rish's to my house .
we were in the house lo minutes beforo
Tubbt left; Tubbt had sent one of mv
little girls over to tell bis wife to come
over; she had gone when we got thcro!
the camo after I got there ; child said wifo
was sick; Tubbs then got up and told
some of them to hand him his hat ; in a
minute or two we heard report of a gun ; it
was between 10 and 11 nearer 11 than
10 ; In 10 or IS minutes after wo got there
Dr. Greer como; Huffman lived about J
mile from Rash's and a little over a mile
from whero Tubbs was shot by a straight
line ; by main, road a moro than 1 mllo,
James Uightower was next put on the
witness stand and stated as follows: Ac
quainted with defendant and with Tubbs!
sometime previous to Tubbt.' doalh was
with defendant at grocery; he said if
Tubbs treated him as he had Smithy ho
would kill him ; on another occasion he
said, if he treated him as ho had Smith v he
would kill him if ho had to way lay him
don't remember whether he mentioned
how Tubbi had treated Smithy; Tubbs
had cursed Smithy and abused him, and
caused him te go into the grocery and
spend his money to get out of it ; it might
have been a month and it might not havo
been to lung ; I cannot be particular
about tho tlmo ; theru wan either tlan-
ping, striking, or pushing by Tubbs or
Smithy ; think Price was keeping the
grocery when threat was made.
