1:30 a. m.George Kelly, the murderer of
Edv.-ard Paul and Jacob Hayes, was
hai.-ged in a shed built for the purpose, rta

thi-i morning. The trap was sprung by &%&* *-3
Sheriff A. G. Anderson, at 12:56 o'clock,
and six minutes later life was pronounced
extinct. In ten minutes the body was cut
down and examination showed that death
had been caused by his neck being broken.
The execution was without a hitch.
Everything Went off as arranged, and
smoothly. It was Kelly's own request
that he was hanged at an early hour.
"Let it be as soon as the law allows,"
said he to Sheriff Anderson.
The murderer spent the entire evening
with Ju3ge J. C. Nethaway, his counsel,
and Rev. A. Nelson, both of whom he
had asked to attend him during his last
hours. To Judge Nethaway he made cei
tain revelations concerning his past

as was at first stated by Hally. At. the
last moment the Stillwater attorney was
greatly relieved to find that ,the con
demned man would accept the consolation
of religion. Rev. Nelson, the Franconia
missionary, entered the cell and without
attempting to dissuade Kelly from the
ory or was deliberately mendacious. The
majority of those who talked with the
man are inclined to the latter opinion.
To Judge Nethaway he said that he was
thirty-two years of age and had had no
settled place of abode since he was four
teen. He denied that he was ever mar
ried. Alton, 111., he claimed as his
native city. When he last heard from afternoon Rev. F. pastor'of
his people, who, during the afternoon he
stand he had taken requested that on the
scaffold he repeat the Lord's prayer. This
Kelly consented to do
It was 12:45 when everything was de
clared to be in readiness for the execu
tion. The few who were to witness the*
execution occupied positions of vantage
on the scaffold and in the window and
lower door of the court house. At 12:51
o'clock the procession started from the
cell room. Kelly had washed, put on the
new suit of black presented him by the
sheriff and actually seemed impatient at
the delay. Deputies Sevey, Vaughan and
Sahsen, followed by Sheriff Anderson and
Rev. Nelson on either side of the pris
oner, advanecd from the cell and made
their way slowly down the stairs and out
into the shed. The movements of the
man was impeded by the long robe he
wore, but as far as could be seen he was
Once upon the scaffold the work of the
night was quickly accomplished. Kelly
knew the programme and carried out his
,part without delay. He knelt upon the
trap and intimated by a look that he was
ready for the minister to begin. The
Lord's prayer was slowly repeated.
Neither the voice of Rev. Nelson nor the
responses of the murderer could be heard
a half dczen paces off. At times the near
est persons could barely catch the words.
When the prayer had been finished Kelly
sl.wly repeated, "May the Lord have
mercy on my soul." '!r^#

Center City, Minn., Special, Mftrch 22.
The Scene of the Tragedy at AVyoming.
George Kelly had long ceased to hope
for a respite when his last day on earth
dawned. He had retired early, and with
the exception of a few minutes at mid
night, his .sleep was unbroken. /A
o'clock this morning he was at his. toilet,
which was simple enough to require only
a basin of water, rough towel and a
comb. He had a' cheery good morning
for all of the deputies and discussed vari
ous topics with them until his breakfast
Was ready. The first caller was,Rev. A.
Nelson, who has a mission at Pranconia,
five miles from this place, Kelly received
him courteously. During the conversa
tion which followed the condemned man
said that he was of Irish parentage and
had been brought up in the Catholic
faith. For three tfears, however, he had
not attended church. All that the mis
sionary said Kelly listened to, but gave
no sign that he was receiving spiritual
encouragement. He asked, however, that
Rev. Nelson return in the evening.
There were comparatively few callers
during the day. All who did "come were
kindly received by the prisoner. He did
not appear to be gladdened by their
presence, nor did he show the slightest
irritation when the calls became unduly
prolonged. He seemed to feel that he
owed it to himself to be civil -to all.
There was none of that sang froid in
his conduct so often a displayed by men
beyond the pale of earthly hope. He was
merely, calm. Seldom did his voice be

Kelly's Life HI story., i.yi^|ft
Kelly was seen by a Pioneer Press man
just as his supper was brought up to him
in a small market basket. It was a plafn
but ample meal and he did it justice.
While eating he talked freely upon all
subjects except his identity. He was
quick to detect any maneuver on the paijt
of the newspaper man to aid in the solu
tion of the mystery. Such questions as
came under the ban were met with silence
or a calm reTusal to answer. He admitted
that he was a Southerner that his father
was a native of Nova Scotia and his
mother of Virginia.
"Up to three years ago I led an honora
ble and upright life," said Kelly. "I was
married, but had no children. I worked
at-my trade of brick and tile laying and
was fairly well to do. Trouble came to
me first through the interference in my
domestic affairs of an aunt who lived in
the same town. Once dissension was bred

that he had nothing further to add, and
nothing to recant.
The conversation developed an incidsnt
in relation to the double acquittal of

bitter, and that Johnson was getting off
Jtoo, easy. pSCho answer -was a positive

Kelly was asked whal! influenced him
tp such a course when he must have felt
that Johnson was equally guilty- with
him. He admitted that he did feel that the
young Missourian was in fact just as
guilty as he, but there was a compact
between them that they would not testify
,against each other, and that it had been
sacredly adhered to.
"Johnson got off!" exclaimed Kelly."
That is all right. I have no complaint to
make. Let him enjoy his liberty."
"Do you feel that so long as Johnson

of your fate?"

'During the last few daVs J. H. Huber,
editor of the North Branch Review, has
been in constant attendance upon Kelly.
From the conversations held by the two
men a meagre history of the murderer,
may be gleaned. Following his quarrel
and departure from home he entered upon
a nomadic life and traveled extensively,
but in a desultory manner, through the
East, and Southwest. He occasionally
worked at his trade, but oftener made his
living by dealing faro and very probably
much more precarious means than that.

cannot be doubted, but it is also likely

of testing the rope and scaffold. Deputy

Tlie murder of Edward Paul and Jacob Hayes
occurred early in the morning of Saturday,
June 20, 1896. It was known, and still is for
that matter, as the "Wyoming murder," and it
created the greatest excitement. Paul and
Hayes were shot and killed by tramps Who
were attempting to hold, up and rob Dr. Burn
side Poster of St. Paul. It was just before 1
'o'clock in the morning. Dr. Foster had alighted'
from the St* Paul & Duluth train, which ar
rived at Wyoming at 12:40 o'clock, and had
crossed over to a small restaurant where the
young men were sleeping. The tramps, wait
ing near the depot for a train to take ,them out
of the town, saw* him cross to the restaurant
and hurriedly devised a scheme for holding
him up. Paul and Hayes had been aroused by
the repeated knocks of the doctor and had ad
mitted him to the restaurant when the tramps
entered. Their faces were partly concealed by
bandana handkerchiefs. At the first cry of
"hold up your hands," the two men and Dr.
Foster, himself, obeyed. The thieves proceeded
to their work. They had relieved the doctor of
part of his valuables when he turned suddeiily
upon them with a heavy flatiron and cried to
Paul and Hayes to assist him in the defense.
The tramps at once began to shoot. Paul and
Hayes were shot dead and Dr. Fostey was
clubbed until he was unconscious.
The whole country was aroused by the crime!.
Posses scoured the country for the assassins.
Gov. Clough, on the urgent recommendation of
County Attorney. Gottrey, issued a proclama
tion offering $300* reward for the capture of the
murderers. Many suspects were held, but it
was not until Sunday afternoon, June 21, that
the right men were run to earth. They were
cartured near North Branch. They were sur
rounded in a swamp and fired upon by the
posse. One of the three that had attempted
the hold-up was shot and instantly
killed. That was Robert Wilson, whose early
home was" at Faribault. Arthur Johnson, an
other member, was seriously wounded. He
was subsequently tried at Center City and at
Red Wing, once on the charge of murdering
Paul and later for the murder of Hayes, but
he was acquitted both times. Kelly was con
victed at Center City before Judge F. M. Cros
by. He was sentenced to be hanged and the
governor signed the death warrant fixing the
time of execution as this morning before sun
rise. Juuis jcv^i

Eaufaula, Ala., March 23.This city
has been swept by a cyclone in which
death and disaster played a dreadful
part. Men wore almost caught, np
from the stree'.s ,before they could
find shelter. Roofs, shutters, etc.,
gave way and for two hours ther was
terror and desolation, when thk cy
clone passed off to the northeast, cours
ing along the Chattahoochie valley.
Tlie reports soon coming in told of the
devastation. In the town of Blakely,
in Georgia, the village was almost
lifted out of existence. At Arlington,
Early county, Ga., the academy- was
wrecked and eight children killed f.nd
a large number were more or less in

is but one story of death and destruc
tion. The storm came from the Gulf
of Mexico, forming on the western ide
and entering the Apalachicola valley,
traversed its confluent streams-to their
source. From Henry county, Ala.,
around Abbeville, there come stories of
death and wreck. A family of live are
reported killed near Geneva. A sec
ond disaster, that of floods, is now
uron the country. The rivers and
crooks are swelling with the rain-fall
which almost resembled a cloudburst
in its copiousness. News comes in of
the drowning- of a family of eight per
sons on the Alabama side of the river,
in Henry county. Richard Maason,
with his wife and six children, lived in
a cabin on the river bank at the cross
ing of the Central railroad from

extricate ^themselves, all were lost.

conclusion that the present slight
