Yesterday's American contained
an account of a killing on Tennes
seo River, in which A. N. Lindsey
of Big Sandy figured in a combat
with a deperatn robber.
Tho posfol'eo at Stnbbling in
Stewart County was robbed last
Thursday night, and Mr. Lindsey
and his bloodhounds were sent for
Friday morning, lie went at once,
and tho dogs took the trail, but it
was late Monday afternoon before
Mr. Lindsey and his companions
succeeded in locating one of tho
Tho mf.n,who was known as Joe
Stringer, was well armed, and ho
refused to surrender.
Lindsey gave the order to closo
in on him, and he and Will Court
ney and Wilber Sellers advanced
on the robber, who was bheltered
by a tree. The robber opened ire
immediately, seriously and proba
bly fatally wounding Sellers. At
the same time Lindsey and Court
ney advanced firing and the robber
fell mortally wounded by a shot
above the heart and died at once.
At the inquest held by Coroner
Ware of Murray, Ky., Mr. Lindsey
and his companions were exonera
ted. Stolen goods were found on
the body of the robber.
That locality, it seems, hao beet
infested with robbers cf late, but
if a few more are sent to the peni
tentiary or removed like thi3 on
probably a less number of robber
ies will be committed.
