After escaping Smith went to the Pacific coast and entered the rjjited States navy. He Is still In the service and Has iisen to the rank of assistant engineer. Smith was 17 years old when con ricted of murder In tbe second degree in February, 18W2, for the death of a man named Wilson. In substance tbe report of the pardon clerk was as fol lows: SIXTEEN HUNDRED FEET BELOW Isett and Son, drilling contractors, are drilling another deep well at Oak Valley. It is now down to the depth of sixteen hundred feet and they are still drilling. At 1505 feet the Missis sippi lime was struck and it is iti'l found at the 1600 foot dpth. "Smith had been working with tbe man be killed. They were putting up Ice. Just, before the killing, Wil son, 25 years old, struck Smith In the face. Smith had been handled rougbly. The witnesses evidently (.were hostile to fcmlth. When tbe shooting occurred, Smith was being beld by a man nameJ Ruggles and was struggling to get loose. During this struggle tbe revolver was dis charged and Wilson was shot through tne neart. "Smith's contention wa9 that he drew the revolver to frighten the men who had assaulted him and that the tiring of the pistol was accidental. Smith, however, had made threats against Wilson and had armed him self. This fact quite properly Influ enced tbe Jury in discrediting the statement that tbe killing was accidental. "The trial of tbe case occurred at a time when Populism was rampant in Kansas and political feeling ran blgb. It Is said political reeling entered largely into the trial of this case. No effort was ever made to recapture Smith and no reward for his recap ture offered. If the authorities of Ottawa county bad cared to rearrest Smith, It seems that they ought not to have had any difficulty Id locating blm."
