Freda Ward's Murderess.
1'l.XKVli.LE, Ky., Jan. 30. A factional
feud that promises to rival in bloodshed
ding the famous Hat field-McCoy, or any
of the other deserate factional wars
which have made this section of Kentucky
notorious, has broken out in the southern
part of this county. The scene is a wild
mountainous locality known as South
America, and is about eighteen miles
from this, the nearest railroad point.
Owing to the inaccessibility of the place
particulars of the fight are hard to obtain.
Three men have been killed since last
Saturday. Their names are Manuel
Parton, l,ee Davis and Will Jones. The
fight is between lierry Turner, a notorious
outlaw and murderer, who lias killed more
men than any other one man w ho has ever
terrorized this section, with a strong gang,
and the Part on faction.
Peculiar Claim or the Parton Ciang.
The Parton side is a strong one and
claim to have "the law on their side," but
sofarthry have had the hot end of t he
light. Parton was killed Saturday. He
hud essayed to capture Horry Turner, dead
or alive, and posted himself at a conveni
ent distance from a house in which
Turner was fortified with a number ot
his gang. It was probably Partous inten
tion to shoot Turner at the first oppor
tunity, but the latter had too much cun
ning. The outlaw discovered the where
abouts of his won id-be slayer and at an
unguarded moment, succeeded in drawing
a iH'ad on the latter and sent a ball from
his Winchester crashing through Part oil's
(Partly Devoured by Hoes.
The B'idy of Parton was allowed to lie in
the wofds for four days, his friends being
afraid to attempt to rescue it. When it
was finally taken away it had been partly
devoured by hogs. This murder only fired
the Parton faction to more desperate war
fare against the Turner side, and on
Wednesday they made a bold attempt to
avenge the death of one of their men. The
fight was disastrous to the Partons. as two
more of their number were killed. The
Partons had surrounded t he Turner strong
hold, lct instead of taking the army were
themselves taken in.
Tfce Turners Are Wide Awake.
They were ' fired upon from the Turner
house, and before they could realize that
their presence had been discovered lee
Davis and Bill Jones, two of the leading
men of the Parton faction, had been pierced
with ballets from the deadly Winchester.
More tian 100 shot -were exchanged, and
some ol the Turner faction are said to
have b.n wounded. There is talk of or
ganizidjg a posse of officers from this coun
ty and fom Clairborne county, Tenn., to
attenvptVhe capture of Turner, and a big
fight wWl undoubtedly follow.
