George Gould was shot and killed last Thursday forenoon hy J. Sherman Caswell on the W. S. Cutler farm in East Mont pelier, The murder was oue of the most oold-blooded and dellhcratc orimes ever oommttted 1b tbe atate and afforda a atrik ing Inatance f tne extent to whioh a maa'a reason can he domlnated by theptiwerof jealous passion. Tlie scetie of tlie tragedy was the farm of the late Willard S. Cutler on the road leading to Calais aml just over the line in East Montpelier. Caswell h gan to work for Cutler BDOUt tvventy-two years ago, aml ainoa that time has lived on the farm. He aspired to the hand of his employer's daughter, Lanra, now about thirty-eight years of age. but his suit was uneucoeasful. Cutler died about three years ago aml Caswell and the girl remaitied on the farm. Last spring Mrs. Cutler died, aml about that time George Gould com meoced to work on tbe farm. Gould ap pears to have suooeeded in distancing Cas well in the raoe for the hand of tbe bllXOtO Laura, and on the day prec eding tbe mur tler the COUple came to Montpelier and were marricd by Bev. J. B. Wright, They spent, Wedneaday night at Jaok Blodgen'a, in Putnamaville, going bome Thursday foro Boon, Caswell was np-atalra when they arrived aml the only other oioupants of the house were two womell. About eleven o'cloek, half an hour after hia arrival, QoUld was going into tbe house with some kindling-wood for his wife to bulld a lire. Aaheatapped npon the threaheld Caswell appeared at a wlndow about ten feet over Gould'a head, and, tbrusting ont a ahot-gun, lired down npon hlm. The charge of shot struck QoUld in the face, tearlBg off the left side of his head, nose and javv aml passing into his right breast. Gould elasped both banda over hia face and ran aoross tlie road against a feoce, falling about one hundred tifty feet from the steps. He died in about balf an hour. No one saw Gould when the shot was tired, but Miss Minnie Cutler saw bim running from the steps. He spoke several tiines before t-xpiring, but no one knowajual What he said. Dr. D. (i. Kemp was siimmoned and arrived tifteen miiiMtes after Gould died, He dtreoted the neigh- bors who had gathered to leave the hody where it was till the seloetmcn arriv ed, and it was not moved till after twoo'ohick in the afterBOOB, when S. 8. Towner was sum- moned to care for it. Immediately after tiring the fatal shot, Caswell went to tbe house of a iicighhor atid asked bim to take hlm to Montpelier. He Intended to give himself up to SheritT Dudley, bnt be was absent aml he surremleied to (.'. DeF. Han croft, whoin he inet on Main street. Caswell J talked qttite freely about the details of tlie crlme and made no objeotion to being takeu : tojail. Caswcdl is forty-six years old and was bom at Worcester. He was a member of Company c, Ponrteenth Vermont Volun- teers and a government pensioner. It was ; his orlginal Intention to kill Mrs. Gould and then oommlt suioide, but after making away with Gould his eouraga faileil hlm. To a , friend who visited bim at the jail he said he bad no regrets for what he had done and that the only thing he was sorry for was that he did not kill the woman too. On Fri day morning Drs. Kemp, Chandler and Bisbee held a fortnal autopsy aml deeided that the vlotim met his death from hem orrhage induoed by receiving a charge of shot from a gun in the lower jaw, some of the shot lodging in the breaat . The de oeased was thlrty-aeven years of age. Fun- : eral services wi're held at the house Satur day afternoon and the remalna were in terreil in the Cutler hury ing-ground. The murder was evidently premeditalod and de- , llberately planned. Caswell was a drink Ing man and it was reported that he w;is under the Influence of llquor when the deed was oommitted. This report is denied in other quartera, and it is stated that the tnur derer had beendrinking nomore than usual on the day of the crime. Caswell was evi dently determined to obtain the hand of I.aura Cutler in marriage, and his rage at seeiing her the wife of his hated rival drove bim to commit the terrible eriine. He had often tbreatened to make trouble for Miss Cutler in case she married another man, , and the sad tragedy npon the very day after her marriage proves that he was 'making no idle tbreata. He seemed reinarkahly cool aml nnooncemed after giving himself up, aml at firat Bhowed little sigus of repent- anoo. Laier, bowever, when he hegan to realize the inevitahle I'onseiptenoes of his aot, be broke down, aml for several days refused to take any food. No ltiterview eotibl be ohtained with the prisoiier, as his counael at onoe Inatruoted bim to do notalk- , ing. J. (i. Wlng will defeml Caswell and S. C. ShurtlelT is WOrklUg up the case against him. The charge against him is murder I II the tirst degree. Mr. Wing re fused to make any statcmout about tbi! probable line of defense, stating that he haii uothiiig to say at present, bnt that at tbe proper time the prisoiier would tell his -tory. He finally deoided to waive tbe prelimlnary examination, and on Monday Caswell was bOUBd over to await the action td the grand jury, whioh coiivened yesterday.
