He said he armed himself with an ax, not to hurt any of tho people in the house, but to prevent their escaping, as he had been told to watch a door. The murder, Johnson said, planned by Bud McKnlght, a white who was a suitor of tho girl, Maude Miller, whose mother, Mrs. Cotton, whipped her for allowing McKnlght's attentions. This Is the only motive he knew for the crime.
