There was another killing Wednesday night, the result of drunkenness, and probably $500 of the people tax money will be expended in the courts in an ef- fort to get some idea bow to aa minister "justice in the matter, says the Columbus Advocate. George Smirland Nig Costello, each about 30 years of age, were miners at No. 42 mine south of Carona, and had been quarrel ing over something. About 10 o'clock Wednesday night Smirl went to Costello's house and called to him, and, according to Costello's story, when Costello appeared at the door Smirl shot at him with a Smith & Wesson revolver, Costello got a shotgun and fired two loads into Snarl's left breast, killing him instantly. Smirl fell with his head toward Costello's Louse, and about 30 feet from the door. His revolver lay on the ground near him. It had four empty, chambers, and it is claimed he fired that often at Costello. Sheriff Hatton was notified at once1y phone and he sent Deputy Theo Hatton and Deputy Guy Cooter up to make the arrest. When they got to No. 42, about five miles northwest of town, it was reported that Costello had gone to Columbus to surrender. Later Earnest Howerton tel ephoned in from . Skidmore that Costello was there and wanted the sheriff to come and get him, as the last car had passed and he could not ride in. Sheriff Hat ton drove up and brought in Cos tello and turned him into the county jail at 2 o'clock a. m. Costello's home is atStippville. He is the son of Joe Costello, an old soldier very well known here. Young Costello has had trouble from drink before and was com plained of and arrested at the instance of his family, whom he had threatened. . His mother still lives at Stlppville. George Smirjl was one of the Snarl's arrested for complicity in the killing of an Austrian miner at the same place a year or so ago. He and . his father were witnesses to the tragedy when a joint keeper killed the Austrian with a piece of scantling. They were examined- before Justice Bell at Roseland and released. The murderer escaped and has never been apprehended.
