Hggro Man .Shot Dec 26
I" y
Sticcumbs To His
Youm Son of The Man
He KM$a, Four
- Years Ago.
R. B. Morgan, the negro who was
shot on Sixth street between Alain
and Virginia, Thursday, December
26th, died from his wound last
Thursday afternoon.
Tl .....
ueing convinced that death was
imminent he concluded to make a
statement as to who fired the fatal
shot and Chief of Police Rnner
Sheriff Low Johnson and Deputy
Sheriff Jewell Smith went to the
house where he had been since the
shooting. The officers heard his
first 'statement and had the court
stenographer, John King, sent for.
Mr. King complied with the eum-
mons at once. In the nresence of
the four officers named, the dying
man made his statement and made
oath to it, which was in substance
as follows:
"I am in my' right mind and real
ize that I am in a dying condition and
know who shot me. It was the big
gest bov of Jim Morris, witiTblack
curly hair, who worked In a meat
shop on Virginia street, ?I was com
ing from FralSk Hosendove's pool
room on Sixth street, Morris was
coming from toward Main street.
I met him near Cobb's- saloon, on
Sixth street, Morrf just pulled his
revolver and shot me without sayintr
a word.".
From the day he was shot to that
of his death Morgan persistently re
fused to divulge the name of the
one who shot him. Why he did this
has not been known, and consequent
ly no warrant of arrest was issued.
Over four years ago Monran shot
and killed Jim Morris, a son of Jack
Morris, who lives north of town.
The shooting took place in a box car
in the yards of the Illinois Central
railroad. Morgan was tried and
sentenced to the Eddyville peniten
tiary for a term of three year. Aft
er his release from prison he is said
to have been arrested at Leitchfield.
Ky for robbery and was out on a
750 bond when he came back to his
old home and met his death. He
was a son of Peter Morgan, one of
the best colored men in the city and
who was a valued employe ojf the
Western Kentucky Hospital for
many years. He moved into the
city some years ago and was long
lie school buildincr.
The Coroner, Dr. J.-H. Rice, held
an inquest yesterday morning and
the jury rendered a verdict to the
effect that Morgan's death resulted
from blood poisoning due to the im
proper treatment of his wound in
the early stages, as the wound itself
was a slight flesh, . wound that did
not penetrate the cavity.
Wallace Morris, apparently about
18 years old, appeared before Judge
Knight at 3:30 o'clock and put him
self in the custody of the court, on
a charge of voluntary manslaughter
and gave a $1,000 bond te await
grand jury action.
