la Which Ha. J. a. Beardaley la la
Major Beardsley. of Rock Island, ar
rived in town yesterday. His presence
nere revives the rumor of an action
against Sheriff Hogan for damages grow
ing out of the shooting of Clinton Han-
sell. Montezuma Democrat.
Maj. Beardsley was seen by a reporter
this morning concerning the above case
and be related the facts which form one
of the most remarkable and novel cases
that have come before the courts of
Iowa. Maj. Beardsley and John Mc-
Candless, Esq., of Montezuma,, have
entered for trial at the October term of
the district court of Poweshiek county, a
suit in the name of the wife and children
of Mr. Clinton Han sell, to recover $30,-
000 from Sheriff Hogan, of that county.
for being responsible for the death of
Clinton Hansell who was killed on the
night of March 7, last. The major gives
the circumstances to be as follows:
On Friday prior to the killing of Han
sell, Homer Shockley, of Montezuma,
went to an attorney there and stated to
him that Hansen had proposed to
him to go out to the premises of
Harvey Haines, five miles in the country,
and who is supposed to have a large
amount of money, and rob him. The
sheriff was called in, to whom Shockley
told the same story. Shockley said to
the sheriff that Hansell did not want to
go on Friday because it was not a lucky
day The sheriff, it is said, told Shock
ley.to go and arrange with Hansell to go
on Saturday night following, and further
advised him to go to a livery stable and
hire a team to take Hansell out there
about 8 or 9 o'clock at night and he
would pay for the team. Shockley went
to HanseU's yard, where the latter was
working in his garden, and suggest
ed the propriety of going. Oa Sat
urday night Shockley drove to nansell'8
houseand called to him, the latter having
his hat and coat off, preparatory to going
to bed, bnt went out and joined
Shockley with the team. After some time
bad elapsed, he returned to the house,
dressed himself and told his wife he was
going up town.
In the meantime the sheriff and his
deputy, Wilaie, and a farmer by
the name of Bryant, who was
called to the sheriffs aid, had gone
in advance to Harvey Haines' house,
the scene of the prospective burglary,
and the sheriff informed him of the plot
to rob him, saying to him, as Mr. Haines
is alleged to say, the men, Wilsie and
Bryant, fwould remain outside, that he
would remain in the housa.and that when
tbe burglars came and rapped on the
door he did not desire to hurt Shockley,
but that they would "string Hansel up."
When the burglars arrived Hansell
and Shockley the latter went forward.
Hansell following, but requesting him to
return as he did not want bloodshed.
Shockley replied that he was a coward
and urged him on. Shockley rapped
upon the door.and called Haines to come
out. Haines asked who was there, and
opened the door, and Shockley ordered
him to throw up his hands, pointing a
revolver at him. The sheriff shot over
Shockley's shoulder and Shockley fell
as prearranged. Bryant and Wilsie ran
up to Hansell, who had not reached the
house, and who started to run, when
Deputy Wilsie shot him and he fell mor
tally wounded, dying the next morning.
Dr. Vest was sent for, who came, and
told Hansell that he could not live, and
if he had anything to say, to tell it. He
stated the facts about being persuaded
into the crime as stated, with the prom
ise that there should be no bloodshed,
and charged , the whole affair as a con
spiracy on the part; of those who had
killed him, to get him Into the trap and
