soup ordered by Qrimsley. There are
many conflicting statements and
many rumors, and whether or not
Qrimsley was drunk has not been

o'clock. The Inquest was held at
the police station Sunday afternoon at

ing at the counter talking to the man
behind the counter (Sandlfer). He
was cutting up some onions. It was
not later than 3:30 o'clock. 1 don't

Hessinger? came in and spoke to me.
I had taken meals In the place sev
eral times with them, and they both
knew mo. She went hack into the
kitchen, where there were some ne
gros. The kitchen is the adjoining
room. This man (Sandlfer) was
standing there talking to tno across
"This man (meaning Qrimsley)
came in the front door of the res
taurant, and without Bpoaking a
word, threw his pistol by my shoul
der and flred at Sandlfer. Sandifer
fell behind the counter. The man
(Qrimsley) then walked around be
hind the counter and shot Sandlfer,
lying on the floor dying, a second
time. Tin? man (Qrimsley) then
turned his pistol on the woman and
fired twice. Sandifer never raised a
hand Rgainst the man. He did not
have time to. for the man shot too;
quick, It was all unexpected. Tin
man (Qrimsley) without saying a
word, left the store. Mrs. Hessinger
fell to the door and screamed, and I
