A but Me ensued. Listing but u few moments iiihI when the Kmoke h:id cleared away Hit-hard Johnson 21 years old was dead, -Hubert Johnson was seriously wounded and Garland Johnson hud received casual .injuries. It is said the primary "cause of the affair was a dispute over land lx-tween the father of the boys in the attacking party and J. II. Uoyer, father of the other men in the lisht. Hot words were passed lietween the elderly men. and it is alleged that Johnson slashed Uoyer with a knife. Koyer's son Henry then procured a hammer and knocked Johnson down, though the blow was not suftii-ient to render him uncnsclons or helpless. According to reports Johnson arose and informed them he would go home, get his lKys and come back ami viit summary punishment on the whole, hunch. It was not long until the Johnson imys came. It has lcen affirmed they brought two other men with them. In the meantime the Koyers had - made preparations to give them a warm re ception, ami when the Johnson, broth era were a few paces from the house the battle sfartetl. Ansel Uoyer was at an upstairs window and his brother, Henry, took station at a tlownstairs window. Xo doubt the fight was over quickly for the Johnsons all went down almost simultaneously. Hit-hard John son was killed instantly, Is-ing terribly mangli-d about the hotly anil no doubt received the full charge from a shot gun. . Garland Johnson, the least in jured of the trio, started to leave, but was hailed and told to put down his arms and see about his brothers. ob Johnson had managed to get away and got in a wagon ami was conveyed home. There were many reports circulated that I'.ob's hurts had resulted fatally, but they proved groundless. He was brought to town for treatineent and is getting -alone on the road to recovery. He wa si badly wounded in the face and chest. The body of the dead man lay where it fell until officers arrived. At the time the Koyer home was at tacked, three women and several' little children were in the house. They were sent to the kitchen in the rear before the shooting commenced. A very high powered pistol was used by one of the attacking party and evidences were found that it was shot nine time, some of these shots going through the three walls of the house and one bullet passed through the kitchen where the women anil children had sought safety. The Koyors were arrested and made bond for JJ.VMK They are well thought, of and have not hail anv previous trou ble. Wo understand that Delbert Owens, who Is saiil to have been one of the two who were with the Johnsons, was ar rested here Tuesday and placed in jail. It. EZELL DEAD. I?.
