Tho morning opened beautiful and bright

fold biavely and believed ho would bo as

Enjoying himself with song and music
Tho jail was guarded till night by the sold

utes after the doomod man said his prayers
and prayed with him ten minutes Ho nte

doath warrant to Johnson at 8 oclock
Johnson said tho sentence was just Tho
rope was then adjusted and everything was
pronounced in readiness at I oclock whon
tho e with tickets wero admitted 1 ho
gnlkv was erected in the jail yard aud
no spectators were admitted
Johnson walked on tno scaffold with a
firm step but a nervous twitching of the
lips and eyes Sheriff Allor asked him if
ho had any request to make Ho said ho
wanted his collar nnd necktie removed
which was demo Ho then addressed the
crowd saying he hoped to meet them ull
in a world whore there was no sorrow Ho
thanked the Sheriff for his kindness shook
hands said good bye and was swung into
eternity In ten minutes lie was dead Ha
was then exhibited to a crowd of 5000 on
the outside
Is as follows The afternoon of October
J5 Adam Crew went to the residence of
George Williams Everything was closed
up Ho went to the barn and there I on ml
Mr Williams body just inside of the barn
He was considerably ularmod aud did not
Co to tho house but ran and arousod tho
people of the ueighbqrhood who upon en
tering the house were confronted by a ter
rible spectacle
In the bedroom near the bed lay the
lifeless form of Mrs Williams A two
months old babe was in bed uninjured but
almost famished It had probably boon
there for forty hours unattended Ap
pearances indicate that the deed had boon
done about bed time Tuesday evening
Mrs Williams was preparing for bed and
was probably stooping over the babe at
tending to its wants when the murderous
blow was struck
Mr Willhams was in his shirt sleeves
and had probably been attracted to thu
barn by a noise and must have been struck
on the back of tho head with an ax just
utter entering the barn door evidenced by
a large cut on the back of thu head After
he had fallen the murderer cut his throat
from ear to ear almost serving the head
from tho body The weapon used was
Williams ax which was found hid in a
straw stack
Wesley Johnson a young man who bxd
been working for an uncle of the murdered
man was arrested Tuesday night John
sou did not get home until 11 oclock
Wednesday it was noted he acted a little
queerly and nt noou ha notitied his em
plover he was going to quit and was going
to Toledo from Wauseon At Wauseou
ho was seen to enter tho water closet aud
soou after a watch was found in there and
later a pocket book was fished up out of
vault both of which wero identified as the
property of Mr Williams
Johnsons trial began on Februnry A
181 He was tried for the murder of Mrs
Williams The evidence was circumstan
tial He had more money when arrested
than he could account for Blood on his
boots told part of tho story and u breast
pin belonging to Mis Williams was found
in his pocket He was defended by Martin
Krupp and W II Hubbard Prosecutor
Cahill was ussisted by Judge Haag Judge
Moore presidod Johnson was found guilty

County but divided from Fulton only by a
road T hoy were poor had one child anil

farmers Tho baby who is the solo sur
vivor of tho peaceful littlo homo circle is
manifesting a determined disposition to
live despite three days of ngouiziug priva
tion In harmony with other all airs of tho
sumo sort there was a womuu in it John
sou was as ho claimed at times tho hus
Land any how tho lover of Lou Myers u
woman of twenty six who lives at Delta
Bho wrote a letter to Johnson before his
crime saying that another fellow had of
fered her money to go with hm to Chi
It was this letter which probably in
duced Johnson to kill and rob that ho
might keep her to hitnsolf and away from
such a wicked city as Chicago Since tho
crime she has been sharp enough to Keep
irom nun cue was nis mistress no doubt
nnd whilo her reputation is not counted
the best she is nw living quietly at homo
Several of Johnsons brothers attended his
execution Johnson had been converted
during his confinement and died in the
usual style with a hopo that ho might go
to heaven His body will bo buried in

proacher brother will preach tho sermon

Wards Affairs
New Yontr May 30 The charges of
Mr Fish against Ueneral Grant and your
solf are very specific said a reporter to
Jesse Grant to night I should think it

That may bo was the answer but
wo meaning probably tho entire Grant
family have all come to the conclusion
that wo will make nd statements for publi
cation This matter can not bo settlod by
tho newspapers and we nro content to
wait feeling suro that in tho end we shall
be porfectly justified

be seen to day The following statement
of Mr Fish however was sontto Mr War
What did Ward do with nil his money

pose that this man Warner got a largo part
of it

I see nothing in that which requires
nny reply I havo nothing to say about

woll this evening at his home In reply to
the inquiry How ho came to loan 50000 to
Fred Grant without security he said
I lout It to him as I would lend it to
nny man who I thought was honest and
had tho ability to pay
What representations did Orient make
to you
I would prefer not to stato that The
matter will become tho subject of judicial
investigation in a few days
General Grant said this evoning in re
ply to tho question whether he desired to
make any statements of Jas D Fish
I have nothing at present to say
To day Russell Sage was asked by akro
porter as to transactions with Grant it
Transactions with Grant Ward I
nover had any transactions with that firm
I do not desire to bo mixed up with them
But you are roported as having ad
vanced sums on government contracts
No sir I never advanced a cent to
them I never got mixed up in those sort
of operations
And you never lost a half million dol
lars through that firm
Not a cent
What are your convictions as to General
Grants connection with Wards methods
Well I believe the General tried to be
square I think he is an honest man
Mr S F Randall when asked where
the original letters between Grant and
Fish were replied that ho was wholly ig
norant He would noither deny or alllrin
whether thero were additional letters iu ex
An expert employed to examine Into the
affairs of Grant Ward said to day that
be doubted if an accurate account of the
business could be secured The books
were in such a wretched shapo that it iraa
next to impossible to form a correct idea
of the assets and liabilities
Ward taid to a reporter to day
I wish you would deny any rumors that
connect tbo President with this business
as I never had any transaction with him
