Tho Murderers of Wm Forffuson
and Brnck Watts Mako a Full
In our laBt issuo wo noted tho dov
lllsh crime of poisoning Mr Wm Fer
guson and Mr Brack Walts who had
died from tho effects and of littlo
who has nearly recovered
On Wednesday Leo Wiggington and
his three sons Charles Frank and
John aged respectively 30 23 and 12
years wcro arrested charged with tho
crime They had their examining
trial on Friday and Leo Wiggington
and his son John wcro discharged
whilst Charles and Frank wcro held
ovor without bail to await tho action
of tho Grand Jury Alter their arrest
and before tho trial Frank confessed to
sovoral parties that ho aud Charles
had planned and executed tho deed
Leo Wiggingtons wife also mado a
statement to several parties largely
confirmatory ofjwhat Frank had said
Later on both parties denied that they
mado such confessions and said that
if they did it was while suffering from
the influence of fear and that they
should not bo held accountable for any
statement they might havo mado
while laboring under such excitement
That they committed tho dreadful
murder there is scarce one iota of
doubt and thcro is in nil probability
ample evidence forthcoming to insure
them tho hanging they so richly dc
sorre On Saturday night a mob
gathcrnd and took tho Wiggington
woman out and hung her up for a
while in ordoi to extract a full con
fession from her Thoy alo searched
for Leo Wiggington who had been
released by tho Court because here
was not sufficient evidence to hold
him and had they found him it is
more than likely ho would not havo
been taken down till it had becomo a
matter of pmall concern to him what
further was done Iho mob also
mado a feeble attempt on the jail but
finding Jailor Tipton prepared for
them and lacking a leader they went
off without accomplishing anything
We earnestly counsel patience in
this matter Tho guilty parties at
least those most responsible for tho
horrible killing aro in tho hands of
tho law and tho ovidencc is such that
justice will nlmost surely overtake
them This should be sufficient to all
law loving citizens Tho mob spirit
is a most dangerous thing to turn
looso in a community and while wo
aro not prepajed to say that thcro is
no caso in which tho pcoplo may not
bo justified in taking the law into
their own hands wo do say that any
community can better stand a vast
amount of badly executed law than to
run tho fearful risk of foiling all law
at defiance
Wo havo good and efficient officers
who will do their utmost to sco that
justico is dono then trust this matter
in their hands and givo them what
aid you can in scenring tho evidence
that exists and we prophesy all will
be satisfied with the result aud none
will havo tho possible elianco of re
flecting that ho has needlessly dyed
his hands in tho blood of his fellow
man More than this wo want to
warn all misguided persons who will
not listen to reason that the prisoners
are in tho hands of Jailer Tipton and
he will protect them Ho would sac
rifice much before he would hurt any
ono for tho sako of such miscreant
but como what will ho and his guurds
are going to piotect that jail
Later The Wiggington woman
and tho men Charles and Frank havo
mado a full confession and by this it
appears that it was a cool and delib
ately planned murder They claim
that Leo Wiggington and Charles
came to town somo days ago and
bought tho poison at W S Lloyds
drug store of hi clork then taking it
home tho nost offectivo way of using
it was fully discussed around the tiro
that Frank Charles and John went
to the houso with instructions from
tho old woman if thoy could not And
an opportunity to placo tho poison in
tho coflco pot then to burn tho house
Old man Wiggington has not been ar
aested at this writing
