DEPUTY MARSHAL WADE 8!0A/,H Held lor Involuntaru Manslaughter. Manu Good Giilzeus Otter To Go On His tfon). Deputy United States Marshal Wade Brown returned last evening Iroui Hickman, Fulton county, where yesterday Judge Naylor held him over to the circuit court grand jury on the charge of involuntary manslaughter. As an evidence of the sentiment down that way, no sooner had the judge aunouooed hit decision than twenty of the beat citizens of Hiokman came forward and warned to sign the popular •leputy marshal's bond, but while appreciating their feelings he needed no monetary assistance, and pull ing his check book, wrote out a check lor the $500 and handed it over to the cou^t. He then return ed here last evening to remain until Hie grand jury mets the second Monday in May. 1 he evidence showed that last week the deputy marshal went to the Blue Pond section of Pulton county, alter Hnrrison Bolling, a young fellow Who came from up the Ieunesaee riv6r some months ago anu la-gun working for a tarmer named Morgan. The deputy had % . warrant charging Bolling with ^VWtlegglng, and found bun working out in a tield on the Morgan farm. The deputy arrested the man when he jerked away and staHe.l to Hiil.’ 1 ht* deputy pU|lt.d tllH KUn and •nuni-d 14fter Bolling, intending to lire in 'he air to scare him, wbeg Deputy Brovt'.n stumbled Upofl a olod of dirt, ami was thrown for ward out of his balance. Losing his balance he naturally clutched his revolver tightly in regaining himself, ami the clutch snapped the hammer that tired the cartridge and Hent a bullet through the head of Y'oung Bolling, who dropped dead. Deputy Brown sml the others carried the dead body to Morgan’s house and did everything possible for the young man, but he was be yond human aid. Mr. Brown then came to his home in this city in charge of a depury sheriff, aud went back foi his examining trial yester day before Judge Naylor, who held him over to the grand jury on the cnarge of involuntary manslaughter, this being done in Order a more thorough investigation can be made ipto the affair. The low sum of bond fixed shows the feelings the judge bad in the matter. i»ir. mown does not think be will have any trouble whatever in convincing the jury of the acciden tal manner iu which Young Bolling met his death* The deputy was willing to let the matter to go to the grand jury. He in well known all over West Kentucky an one of the best de- „ puties ever serving, and it is a recognized fact that be never shoots at any escaping prisoner, except to scare them arid especially on such a minor and unimportant obarge as bootlegging.—Paducah (Ky.)
