H. Simp. The dead body was found about one hour after the shooting by Mr. J, M. Spencer, an aged Confederate ve Wan. Squire Thomas, acting coroner, held an inquest. It ia very doubtful whether auvone will be arrested for tbe crime or nit, as the murderer was bid on the mountainside ia an ivy and laurel thicket with the original forest timber on, per? haps 100 acrea of land. Deepest -sympathy goes out to his wife, who is almost helples-1, and bis little children, besides faber, mother, pr i'her and several sisters. Pet' re was accused of being a revenue ?nf .nm r and was the victim of a moon? shiner. He is the sixth peraon killed for informing on moonshiners. Pct ra waa instrumental some months ago io arresting Jim Jones for killing a man named Gallaspie in tbat sect on, and also for arresting Gai rge McAlexar. der, now serving a term of 18 veers in the Virginia, penitentiary for killing a mao named Shivtly.
