NEGRO KILLED SATURDAY NIGHT.
Albert Boyd, Alleged Murderer of Sam
Clcaton, Lodged In Jail.
According to eye-witnesses who testi
fied at the coroner's inquest, Sam Clca
ton, colored, was shot and killed late
Saturday night by Albert Boyd, also
colored. The shooting took place at a
negro party on the premises of Mr. W.
N. Austin, five miles from the city.
It appears that a row was begun be
tween Boyd and several other negroes
in which Boyd was worsted. Getting
away from his assailants Boyd is said
to have gone to his home a mile or so
distant and returned with his gun. He
was evidently bent on spilling blood.
Encountering a party of the merry
makers in the yard, some of whom had
been in the general mix-up earlier in
the night, Boyd is alleged to have lev
eled his gun on Cleaton. Gleaton plead
for his life, and another negro ran in
between the two before Boyd could or
did fire. The third party, however, was
ordered to get out of the way or take
the consequences, whereupon Boyd fired
and Cleaton fell dead, with a ghastly
wound in the chest. Not satisfied with
this, Boyd then fell upon his victim
with the stock of his gun, breaking the
fire arm over the prostrate form of
Sunday afternoon Coroner Watts held
the inquest and issued a warrant for
the apprehension of Boyd. Meantime
Deputy Sheriff Sullivan and Special
Constable Owens were on the trail of
the accused, whom they found about 3
o'clock in the morning, asleep in the
woods, near Mr. Carl Fuller's. Ho was
aroused by the approach of the officers,
but offered no resistance. He was
brought to jail. Boyd claims that he
did not shoot Cleaton. He shows evi
dences of the fight and ia suffering
from hia injuries.
