Otic of llio most unfortunate tragc
(Huh over chronicled In Kddy county
occurred Saturday night at 7 o'clock nt
1'hcnlr. the saloon town about n mllo
south of Kddy. ISoth men were lu Mm
saloon of ilitrllold & Tee. Cliovalllor
passed McDanlel mid .Jeff Sykes In the
doorwuy between the buIooii und danco
hall. Kro Alcliatncl luia crossed the
room of tho daucu bull lie lieurd Che
vilirrlr t-all hlni 10 Htip, which ho did.
CliovnlllPr tlion crowed the room to
whero McDanlel wits Atundlng, making
Kuinu lenmrk uud holding his hnnd on
his hln wicket, MoDunlcl told him to
throw III) hln hiinds but he Instead pull
od his gun. A ho did so MuDnnlel
llred, the Ural aliot taking effect on tho
right side of the neck ranging uown
under the collar bone and coining out
about ono inch from tho buck bono bo
tween the shoulders. Tho room being
full of Hiuoko after' the llrst shot no
olher shots took effect, though Chovul
Her fired tils rovolver four tunes nud
McDunlol live times. Chevnlllor then
walked to tho bur In the front room
and ruvo un IiIk aim. Inyliig 11 on tho
bar. Immediately becoming tutnt he
wus naught while falling, by bystand
ers, who luld him down on the Door In
front of tho bur, carrying him from
there to a bed. Dr. Kcnsltiger wr,s
summoned and juudo an examination
of tho wounded man and madohls con
dition as easy ns possible.
Win. llarlleld and Tom Williamson
were stundlng In the door between the
dunce hall and saloon when tho men
wore shouting, while Jeff Sykes was
within two feet of Chevalller when the
llrst Bhot wus lltod. Chovulller was ar
rested Christmas bv McDanlel, and
loeked up over night lu the littlo lock,
up at l'hetilx, for tlNHikenliMn arl
flourishing n slX-shootor. McDanlel did
not lllo cotnplulnt, but Instead turned
Chevalller loose next day. II nil it com
plaint been tiled ho would have been
fined at leoBt 950 and costs, und proba.
bly laid the whole out in jail at u cost
ot 840 or WO to ho county und no ben
efit to himself. Since Christmas Che
valller, despite tho udvico or his friends,
nt different times .threatened to run
McDanlel out of thecountry. MeDan.
lei, being a ifofluty sheriff, decided to
stund his ground. Chevalller had used
very insulting language toward Mc
Danlel at different times, uud during
ull this McDanlel remained pusslve,
and from till tho evidence produced it
would seem hus tried to esoupe this Inst
tragic occurrence to the best of l.h;
ability. Kll was ono of the most genial
and unlet fellows over to sot foot in
Kddy, but It would seem had Imbibed
a dlsllku to McDanlel since spending a
night in tho lock-up.
Justice Iloberts munitioned tho fol
lowing rltUCns and held and inquest
over the remains Sunday: W. W.lltish,
M. 1. Kerr, sr., Tom Jones, Xlb Jones,
II. OhnomiiB, M. W. W indom. Tim re;
suit of the coroner's Inquest wus to the
effect that deceased, Kll Chevalller
cuitte to his death by e gun shot wound
ut the bunds of Frank McDanlel. .
Tho Justice BOt Wednesday, Mareh
1 lth, for tho preliminary hiring, which
commenced yesterday nt ll) a m. uud
wus completed at 3 o'clock. lno wit
ness were exumlned, ull of whom sworo
to practically what has been stated.
District Attorney Franklin nppoured
for the territory and V. S. Uulemun for
tho defense, while Stenographer Driggi
recorded tho evidence. Win. llarlleld
was the llrst witness and ho testllled to
Chevalller calling on McDanlel to stop
after passing him In tho doorway. Dr.
Kenslnger testified to whero tho mor
tal wound took effect. Joff Sykes tcs
1 1 lied to Chovulller stepping up close
to McDanlel ond suylng: "I understand
you say you arc the best man in the
county," at the same time pulling his
six-shooter. Others testified to having
conversations with Chevalller. who
stated that ho Intended to kill McDan
lel. Aftf r tho evidence was In. Justice
Iloberts summed tip the ease, saying
ho felt It a disagreeable duty to decide
the matter, but undor the evidence
could not hold the defendant olid there
fore dUchurged him, fully believing
that tho shooting was In self dofence.
Kll Chevalller was born In 1857 In
Ilaplds parish Louisiana, Ills parents
were neighbors or Copt. D. C. Paul,
with whom Kll cutne to Kddy county
in December, I8l2. Sincothenho was
employed for the llrst six months with
his brother Joe, who cuuio with him, in
opening a forty-acre tract for farming.
Joe returned to Louisiana the next
summer ond Kll went to work for (lib
son, tho man killed by John Densott.
Kll worked until tho full or lBUI for
Olbson, and since then wus employed
by W, W. Hush In tlio butcher business
forking at tho slaughter hottso tho
greater portion of tho time. Kll had
many friends among thoso with whom
ho became acquainted whllo lu Kddy,
all of whom sincerely regret his fearful
death, though none appear to censuro
tho deputy sheriff, whom it Is generally
believed was compelled to shoot or glvo
up to a citizen who, despite tho strln
gent law against carrying deadly weon
ons, had gouo armed for somo time
Tins Is tho only phase of the wholo at
fair which all law-abiding citizens dep
rlcato: for no good citizen ever carries
n slx-shootor In tho dally pursuit of his
avocation, and Kit had u six-shooter
and miiBt have carried It for u purpose.
