will be remembered that tils tract of

did not look well to some of the credltors
of Col Jackson thty assisted him
in contesting the sale, with, the result
that the sale has Dees eetaslde by

it Is believed that a thorough Investigation

WHEELING, Aug. H.?A quarrel
that had Its Inception In children muddying

on Bowman's run led to the murder of
John S. Nolte yesterday morning by
Albert Aultman. Three shots were
fired by Aultman, ajl taking effect an.1
causing almost Instant death, while It
was .preceded by Mre. Aultman being
knocked senseless by Nolte, which angered
her husband to murder. A heavy

Aullman, who will he defended by Attorney
S. 0. Boyce, It Is understood
will take the defense that the case
was justifiable homicide and that he
shot to defend his wife. Aultmap, after
the shooting, gave himself up and
It in the county jail, where he is held
without bond for a hearing on Friday
at 1 o'clock, which will he conducted
before Justice W. IV, Rogers.
The dead man is 49 years of age. a
mlllman by trade and a former policeman.
while Aultman is an employe of
the National Tube Company. The two
families, who live near each other in
Bowman's addition to the city, on Bowman's
run, about a quarter of a mile
from its joining with Caldwell's run.
have been having trouble for some
time past. Yesterday morning it was
precipitated by two of the Aultman
children digging in a spring, and the
two women were drawn into the quarrel.
Aultman, who came out to clean
the spring out agalo. was drawn into
It also and later Nolle came. tVords
led to blows, then the assault .upon
Mrs. Aultman and the fatal shots.
Following the crime the greatest of
excitement prevailed. Hundreds
flocked to the scene and Aultman
walked quietly away and came to the
city, giving himself up at police headquarters,
from where he was quickly
taken to the jail. The affair occurred
at about 11 o'clock and before noon
Coroner Rogers, with Attorney R. M.
Adrlleman, were upon the, scene and
the Inquest was well under way. The
tendency to fight even then was not
all over and upon several occasions
it looked as though fresh trouble
would break out.
The story is probably told of the
murder best ab the evidence was offered
at the Inquest by the eye witnesses.
The evidence showed the
quarreling first began over the action
of the children and all the family were
tnklnc nart on both th'e Nolle and
Aultman aide. Mm. Aultmnn cannot
tel) a great deal about the crime, as
at the serious point she -was struck
over the head with a club and knocked
senseless, but knows that shots were
flred and saw Mr. Nolte run Into the
yard and fall. -Previously he had
made the remark that he would fix
the Aultmans, It is said. Anna Belts
and Nora Nolte were present at the
