Another murder was committed this

and cursed and abused him, holding in
tho mean time a six shooUr leveled a'
him. Weidiinyer was unarmed and
could not bo provoked into
a difficulty, which ho knew
would end in his death, so
the matter parsed oil without serious
trouble at that time.
One day last week Estell wis seeii

time aud tho killiug did cot take place
until th s morning,
The details of tho difficulty thi
morning, which from later accounts has
not yet proven fatal to the wounded
man, are as follows:
Tom Weidamyer went to the field
this morning to work, as usual, ai,d
upon returning to the hou-e f und Es
telle there. As so.n as I'Ltolle saw
hicn ho put his hand in his bosom and
pulled his pistol, but belore ho could
uso it, Tom fired and shot off three of
the fingers of the hand in whioh he
held the pistol. Four moro shots were
fired in quick succession, one taking
eireot in the right arm, one in tho left
arm, and one in the left breast just be
low the heart. Five shots wcio fired,
ono of whioh did not take effect. Tom
immediately surrendered to Mr W. H
Abbott, tho manager of the John II
Harrison farm and Mr Henry Ash
burn, the merchant at Harrison. They
started to town with him, but before
thoy arrived here met Deputy Sheriff
Tom Madden to whom they turnded
over the prisoner. An examining
trial will be had tomorrow and it is
the ught tho offenee clearly a case
of jastifiablo homicide Tho amount of
bad required will doubtless bo small.
Estolle is not yot dead, but it is
thought ho cannot recover.
The weapons used are in tho pos
session of the officers. Tho one used
by Woi.lamyer is a14 calibre Reming

stained with bis blood, is a 33 Smith
