The Double Tragedy Spreads Gloom Over All Something In Nature of Lover's Quarrel While Sing ing Crime 13 Planned. Blxby, 1 T.. Oct. 11. This little town was deserted yjsterday.

A pall of gloom wns thrown over the entire town by tho double tragedy on account of the fact that the families of both victims wore among 'the oldest and best Itnown fnmilles of that, section. The Uowloy's nnd tho LlndsevB !lvo lei than a block apart, and Die fain.llta were continually visiting back and forth. luiler dotnlbj of tho kilting show be yond a reasonable doubt that Bew loy killed Miss I.lndsey because she would not marry liitn. lie .had not only told her relatives thai lie wouM Hill her and do away with himself 11 slip rejected him, but told otic or two other persons in Blxby. In tho faco of these threats, often ropentcd to ner, Miss LIndsey, with a strange faith in tho young man, and lellance of death, kept company with lilm, writing to him once or twice each week whllo she was at Stone llluff teaching. About, :i month ago they quarreled nnd site told him he could not return to see her, but llow ley importuned the girl's mother un til sho insisted on the girl allowing him to come back. Bewley was a Boldlor in tho regular army up to tho close of tho Spanish-American war and was a fearless fighter. He wont to tho Philippines with tho Sixteenth roglment from Kansas and served his -throe years. Upon ills return ho opened a barber shop at Blxby and noon nfter formed tho acquaintance of miss Lindsey. Thoy hnd been seeing each other regularly slnco that time except when they had frequent quar rels. Miss Llndsoy declared repeat- cdiy that sho did not love Dewloy, nnd after their quarrel two months ngo only allowed him to return on his promiso that ho would never mention tho subject of marrlago to her again. Sunday Ucwley sang In tho choir at tho Baptist church, and while, engaged in worship, was doubtless planning the. details of tho tragedy. Miss LInd soy was also a member of tho samo choir but did not attend Sunday morn Ing. At 2 o'clock Bowloy drovo up to tho Llndsoy homo with a livery rig and told Miss Llndsoy that ho would drlvo her to her boarding houso near hn Rtnnn llluff nntinnl lirmae. Hpfnrn I taking leavo sho told her mother that this was positively tho last timo that Bho would over go any place with Dew. loy nnd that If ho asked her to marry t mm ugiim sue wouiu give aim a iinai ncgatlvo answer. y Later bvidenco shows almost conclti' atvciy mat uowley snot miss Lind3cy whllo thoy wero sitting Id tho buggy in front of her boarding houso near tho school houso. Tito bullet entered Iter right sido and ranged through tho heart and both lungs In a dlrec tion that would indicato that sho was sitting on tho left sido of the birggy nud leaning away from him, Tho bill let that had passed through tho girl also passed through tho left arm of llowley and lodged , Insldo his coat sicevo whero It had spent Its forco. It Is evident that ho placed his arm nuoui. nor waist nnu men tircu 1110 ra tal bullet into her side. Indications aro that after shooting tho girl Uowloy alighted from tho bug' gy lifted tho body of tho girl out. laid her gently upon tho ground and then smoothing out her clothing ns sho was found lying In tho roadway with tier hands crossed as If sho had been carefully laid there. It Is believed that ho then watched her dio before killing himself as nuito a period claps r cd between tho timo the first shots wero heard and tho report of tho last three which evidently dispatched Bow ley. After watchlm her breatho her last llowley evidently shot himself twlco In tho breast nnd fell to tho ground somo dlstanco from Miss ))Lindsoy. Soelng that ho waa not dying ') rapidly enough nnd wishing to spend 11' Ills last moment by her side ho drag ged himself through thp dust almost cntiro around tho girls body, laid his head down besldo hers nn dthen Blash ed open his own throat with a Jack knife. Tho knlfo was so dull that It must havo taken soveral efforts to never tho windpipe nnd Jugular vein which was tho condition ol tho body when found.. A pool of blood somo dlstnnco from Miss Lindsoy's body nnd a bloody rall In tho dust to the girl s sido whero tho body was found lying, lend certainty to this theory. .What transpired during tho hail hour or so after tho young couple drovo up to tho gato and before tho trngedy was enacted will nover bo told by an eye witness ns there wero nono. This is tho 1 second, trngedy of this sort that lias occurred In this vicinity. Tho Tulsa case of Will Nctt who took his bride of two days to .a lone ly spot on tho highway north of tho city and shot her, .then killed himself Is well remembered. Tho dctalh at the local tragedy aro similar to tho Tulsa affulr. Involuntarily one's mind turns to tho old theory that this fatal spell will not bo broken until tin? third In cident Is recorded.
