" Last Thursday evening, at about half past 8 o'clock, the people .of this citjr were horrified by the dreadful intelli gence that Deputy Sheriff Spillman bad been fatally -stabbed at the house of Elbert Lore, in the suburban settle ment of Stringtown, by Edward John son, the negro who has been mentioned in this paper as baying been adjudged insane some days ago, and who has been an inmate of the county iail since the early part of Hay, when he made a deadly assault npon Marshal Johnson and B. F. Bomalnc upon the occasion of uv Mien "J UMAC ttl WCB ,UK VVIIJUI5 concealed weapons. It appears that' Johnson had been im portuning Spillman for some days past to take him to Love's house, where he had formerly boarded, saying that be de sired to procure some clothing which he had left there in a- trunk. Spillman, whose only fault was his. indiscriminate kindness,bitched up the Sheriff's rig and taking Johnson proceeded to tie. place which proved to be the theatre of b IS CRUEL MtBDER. Upon arriving at Jjove's bouse, John son's trunk was brought out of a back room, and upon being opened was found to contain, among other articles, four pistols and two large butcher knives After looking over his effects and hav ing Spillman take an Inventory of them, Johnson replaced them in the trunk, and he and Spillman, together with Mr. Love, went into the yard, and sat down near the.- door. In . a .'. few min utes Johnson said he had forgotten that there were . BOMB HKKDLEs IS Ilts TBUSK which be wanted, and suiting the action to the word, started back, into the house. Spillman, telling him that be could get all the needles be wanted of the Sheriff's wife, followed him in, but before he could reach him, Johnson had made his way to the trunk, and procuring a knife and a revolver attacked Spillman, firing at him withoutffect with the lat ter, but following up the assault with the . knife, which be plunged into the side of his victim, inflicting a wound from which he died in about . thirty minutes. Johnson was promptly secured by El bert Love and his brother and bound with a strap, and a messenger was dis patched to the city for medical aid for Spillman, who, shortly after the cutting, COMI-LAINKD OF KAIKTNK88, and asked to be taken into the yard, where be died in a little time after the physicians arrived at the scene of the tradgedy. The coroner was notified and a jury impaneled, which viewed the .body preparatory to removing it to the court bouse, .where the inquest was subsequently held, and the result of which Is given be low. In the meantime a messenger had been dispatched to bear the dreadful tid ings of his murder to the wife and family of Spillman, who reside on a farm ten miles from Emporia, on Phenis Creek, and who arrived in this city at. about midnight. Pending the examination of Spillman by the doctors, Johnson was taken in charge by Policeman Page, who, with a couple of guards, and followed by a few boys, walked the murderer back to jail, where he was thoroughly searched and afterwards - manacled. Shortly thereafter the body of Spill man arrived in a 'bus, in charge of Sher iff Moon, ex-Marshal Fleming and oth ers, who bore the remains of the do. ceased deputy Into the dwelling apart menu under the court house, where they were prepared for burial. As the Tehicle carrying Spillman's corpse moved slowly up to the court bouse gate a spirit of pierce Indignation seemed to live "the crowd which had gathered there, and, while there were no noisy demonstrations, there .'were suggestions afloat that would not have contributed to the comfort or the prisoner if he - could have beard them. This feeling, however, we are pleased to note, gave place to better counsels, and no attempt at violence deepened the horror of the dreadful affair, which has so appalled the community. - The prisoner has long entertained the hallucination that members pf the Ma. sonic and other secret orders are SEEKING HIS LITE, and when arrested last May, be bad tied onto his chest an old breast plate of sheet iron and was armed to the teeth. At about 11 o'clock, Coroner Ilibben, County Attorney Sedgwick and Messrs. I. D. Fox, T. C. Fleming, J. G Burnett, C. S. Wheeling, D. Hammond and J. D.

My brother, his wife and myself were present when the stabbing was done. There was but one shot fired ; I did not see the knife in Johnson's hand ; Spillman had hold of the pistol by the barrel. Johnson had four pistols and two knives in his trunk. S. B. X Love. mark Elbert Love testified as follows: I re side in Kellogg's addition to the City of Emporia. I was very slightly acquaint ed with Spillman in his lifetime; was acquainted with Johnson; have known him about seven years ; he had made his home at my bouse since last June a year ago; I saw bim and Spill man at my house this evening about, good dark, when they came there about 8 o'olock ; I was there when Spillman came to his death ; Spillman came up in the yard there with Johnson ; I spoke to Johnson and offered Mr. Spillman a chair; Johnson, walked on into his room, where he had formerly lived; I followed bim; he commenced taking his bed clothes off the trunk ; when be got them off he took out bis keys and opened the trunk; Mr. Spillman spoke then and said, "Johnson, bring your trunk out;" Johnson said he could open it there; I stepped forward and took hold of one end of the trunk, Johnson the other end, and moved it into the front room ; Johnson opened it and took out bis clothes first, then afterwards took out his pistols ; when he took hold of the first one, Mr. Spillman put his hand on it; he, handed it to me and I took it to the table and examined it; it was unloaded ; by that time he had the second out ; I took it to the light and ex amined it; I said to Spillman, "this is fully loaded ;" then Spillman bad the third pistol in his band ; I found it un loaded; be handed me the fourth one; I examined it, and it was loaded all ex cept one barrel ; Spillman was taking the pistols as Johnson took them out of bis trunk ; next was his butcher knives two of them ; he handed them to me and 1 laid them on the table; he took out the rest of the articles in the trnnk ; Mr. Spillman then went to the table and commenced taking a mem orandum of bis things ; after calling over his clothing he came to the pistols and knives; I took the pistols and knives off of the table and banded them to John son; I made this one with which the shooting was done the last one; I would not trust Johnson with this one, but put it in myself, and he picked it up and laid it with the rest; 1 reached It and laid it back and said, "Mr. Johnson, they will rust if laid together." He was then about to shut the trnnk, and Spillman said, "You bad better put the skin in the trnnk ;" Johnson picked up the skin and laid it in the trunk ; says I, "Johnsoo, fold it np and H will lay better ;" he then wound the skin up and took the knives out; then be spoke to Spillman about selling it to aim ; Mr. Spillman took one l notice a letter In IJ.e Law-J rencc Journal of tho 7th inst. from knife, and Johnson walked back with the other and inid it in the trunk ; he then took the skin aiid folded it down again and laid it in the south end of the trunk ; the pistols laid in the north end ; when he did that, my wife asked him what he did that for; I don't recollect whether he spoke or not; as well as I recollect he closed up the trunk again ; I belped him into the north room with it; then he came out first and I followed ; Spillman, I think, was still sitting at the table ; after being there a short time Mr. Spillman said, "Let's go out doors and get some air;" Johnson took a seat "about seven or eight feet from the door and Mr. Spill man one between bim and the door ; that was after we went out out of doors ; Sam Love sat in the door and I sat on the sill Johnson said he had for gotten some needles ; got up on his feet as though be was going to get them ; Spillman said. "You need not mind about the needles; Mrs. Moon will fur nish you all the needles and thread you want." He went right on into the house-; as he went in my wile said, 1 wouldn't let him go in; he wants that liquor." Mr. Spillman rose to follow him, and did follow him; as quick -as a man could make two steps 1 heard him fire; I was sitting in the door at the time; my wife spoke and said, "This man is shot!" and I sprung up; I rushed to the room where Johnson and Spillman were scuf fling ; I moved to the east in the room to give myself light to see what was going on ; I took Johnson by the left wrist ; I raisea nis nana ana saw tne Kmie in it; I pushed it back over bis 'neck ; I then reached around bis shoulder and took bis right wrist, and stiffened his arm with mine ; Mr. Spillman took the pistol out of his hand; the pistol was in his right hand, and the knife was in bis left ; Johnson said, "Damn you, let me go !" I said, "I won't." I then took my left hand and took the knife out of his left hand ; I said, "Johnson, what do you meant" Ho said, "You know 50a fel lows have, been trying to kill me for some time" ; says I, "You have killed that man ;" Spillman had fainted by that time; he said, "They'll hang me now." My brother came in a few minutes af ter aud we tied him; I have related all the conversation I had with Johnson at the time of the occurrence ; Johnson was sitting on the bed and Spillman bad hold of the pistol ; there was not much light in the room; I did not see him do the cutting; there were present Samuel Love, Jinsey Love and myself; I was in the room as quick as the shot was fired; my wife was in the front room; the scuffle took place in the north room ; I heard nothing they said after they went into the house the last time ; I assisted Johnson to put the trunk back into the room; after we took the trunk back Johnson did not open the trunk while we were in there; I didn't think Johnson had time to unlock the trnnk before I heard the shot; I am positive that I put the pistol in the trunk; I am not posi tive whether Johnson put the knife in the trunk, but think he did ; I did not notice the trunk after I heard the shot ; I have not noticed the trunk since ; I laid the pistol myself about tho middle of the trunk : when we first put in that skin we .covered all the articles with it ; Johnson folded it again and exposed them ; I think he puf his hand on this one and moved it down among the rest ; I did not see him put the bed clothes in the trunk ; the trunk was closed and, as I supposed, locked ; he said he kept the pistols and knives there to keep the Masons and Odd Fellows off of him; he has always said so. T. E. Love. Jinsey Love, being sworn, testified: My name is J insey Love ; I am the wife of Elbert Love, the witness who has just left the stand ; I saw Johnson and Spill man at my house this evening; it was getting thick dusk ; I was present when Spillman met his death; they came into the house as I was putting away the milk; Spillman said that Johnson had been to him to bring him down ; that he thought we were going to meeting so much some person would steal his things, so he wanted to take them out, and Mr. Spillman could take a memo randum of them. My husband and John son brought the trunk out into the room. Johnson took all his clothes out of his trunk and reached and got his bottle and took a drink out of that and then com menced taking out the pistols, and the sheriff told my husband to examine them and see if they were loaded ; there were two loaded, lacking one ball ; he laid the first pistol down and Mr. Spill man put his band on it; I said, "Vou had better shoot off these pistols ;" Spill man said there was no harm in him he was a good old fellow. Then he got out his knives and took both of them in his hands and looked at them and laid them down; Johnson said he would like to sell one; the sheriff talked like he would buy one from him ; he asked him seventy-live cents for it ; the sheriff said that was pretty high; Johnson said that he would not get it for anything less if he had not wanted tobacco; he had put them down in his memorandum ; Johnson then fixed all the' things back in the trunk, and after he laid the things back into the trunk the Sheriff said, "There is you skin left out," and he put the skin in and fixed it the long way of the trunk, and while he was fix ing this be laid something back under the edge of the lounge; be said, "This is my thread and buttons;" then he took the skin and turned it back ; said I, "What did you do that for?" he com menced fixing them and shuffling them about, and the Sheriff said, "Shut them up," and he commenced looking about and said he had lost the key; the Sheriff said, "Here it is in the trunk;" he pretended he was locking his trunk ; I told bim to set his trunk back in the room; they set the trunk down and came out; says I, "Mr. Johnson, sit down there on the lounge ;" the Sheriff said, "Johnson, let's go out and get some air, and where we can watch the horses ;" so all five of us went out of the house, and I stepped out and went to put up some milk; just as I got to the door I saw Johnson go back into the house, and just as I got to the steps I stepped back very quick, and the Sheriff said, "Mrs. foon will give you plenty of needles and thread ;" says I, "Don't let him have any more liquor," and just as I reached the . door I heard the pistol shot; says I, "Yon are shot;" Spillman said, "No, I aint;" says I, "Boys, run here ;" and they ran in; I don't know, but I think he shot first; I heard something that sounded like it had struck a button, and yet he said he was not hurt much ; my bus band had ran in and grasped Johnson, and I called to my brother-in-law to go and help him; and just as Spillman stepped out into the room, I saw a little blood on his shirt, and then I said to my brother-in-law, "Run and help him, he is getting sick;" then I holloed for Mr. Leslie; I did not see him fire the Eistol ; Spillman was in the room with ini when the pistol was discharged; Spillman said, "I am cut ;" my daugh ter was there and I told her to go and tell someone to come quick; .by this time Mr. Spillman was out in the yard; I saw Johnson do something with the till of the trunk ; the trunk lid was shut down, but was not locked ; this is not the pistol he sold the Sheriff; a very lit tle time elapsed between the time he came into the house and the time he fired ; this stab I heard was almost at the same time; I think while be was fumbling with the trunk, he slipped this pistol in the till ; dont know whether he put his knife in or not: ho did not have the pistols and knives when tie came to my house. her JrxsEY X Love. - mark. , St rTT ' ijoarM wools S.

Fleming. - JOHNSON, THE MURDERER- Edward Johnson, the perpetrator of the horrible crime, is a light colored negro, about forty-five years of age and of a grizzled appearance. He came to Emporia from Indiana, his native state, about seven years ago, and for the last two years had been boarding with the family of Elbert Love, at whose house the horrible tragedy occurred. He has never been . married. In consequence 01 a wound received in the war of the rebellion, he lost a leg, for which he draws a pension. The " peg leg which he wears baa made him a familiar character to every body in Emporia, and until bis ar rest last spring for the deadly assault on Constable Johnson, he had not been con sidered a "crank" or in any way un usually void of mental or moral account ability. In fact a great many -negroes who are well acquainted with him, in sist that he is a sane man, and this class of our citizens are loud in their protes tations that the law ought to be taken into the hands of the people and the murderer be SUMMARILY HUNG to the nearest tree. As a' competent jury adjudged him insane no longer ago than July 12, however, this senti ment is frowned down by the law abiding citizens, and there seems little danger of mob law at present. A reporter of The News visited John son at the jail under the court house, this morning, to see what he had to say con cerning the perpetration of his horrible crime. He lay on the floor of bis solita ry cell, his remaining leg loaded with chains. At sight of the sheriff and par ty he roused up with a half averted look of stupid indifference. In answer to in quiries addressed to him he said be felt very bad and had been spending his time praying, as he expected every min ute that he would be taken out and hung. Reporter What made you commit the murder? Johnson "I believed Spillman was a member of the Masonic Order, which is persecuting me, and I wanted to make him confess it." "Did you think he could confess it af ter you had killed him?" "I did not intend to kill him. I only wanted to wound him." "Did you not have murderous designs on Spillman when you induced him to. take you out to Love's " "No, I had no thought of killing him until I saw my revolvers aad the knives." "Then why were you so anxious to have him take you out there ?" "I believed some of my things had been stolen, and I wanted to look through my trunk andjsee if everything was there. Sheriff Moon, who was very much at tached to Mr. Spillman, could not re strain his feelings, and with maledic tions on the murderous demon he closed the jail and the visitors withdrew. SKETCH OF MR. SPILLMAN. James A- Spillman was born in Ohio in 1836, and was, therefore, forty-five years old at the time of his death. While he was quite young be removed with his jather's family to Van Buren county, Iowa, where his youth was spent until about 1800, when he removed to Oregon, remaining there until 1869, when he spent four more years in Iowa, and came to Kansas in 1873. For some time he lived with Mr. - Moon, who was then running a farm a few miles west of Emporia. Not long after his ar rival here Mr. Spillman purchased a farm on the head of Phenis Creek, about ten miles southwest of Emporia, and shortly after he went to Iowa and mar. ried Mrs. M. A. Young, and with her set tled on his Carm. When Mr. Moon was elected sheriff in 1878, Mr. Spillman, not being ycry strong then, and wishing some employment less arduous than farm ing, received the appointment of Under Sheriff, which position he held np to the time of bis death. He bad made a very popular deputy, and was announced as a candidate for the office of Sheriff before the county convention this fall. There was not a better citizen in the county than Jim Spillman, and no one speaks of bis sad taking off with any. thing but theprofoundest sorrow. His wife, who arrived in town last night about midnight, is . almost dis traded with grief, and his chit dren are heart-broken by the awful calamity which has befallen them. His family consisted of his wife and a son by her first marriage and three children of his own. Edward Johnson was not lynched at Cottonwood Falls on Saturday night, the cheap wind that some of the "boys" have been relieving themselves of to the contrary notwithstanding.
