KILLING OF J. D. TOMlhiNS.
The killing of Mr, J. D. Tompkins
by sheriff J. W. Dunn last Saturday
evening about 5 o'clock, was very un
t fortunate, but a killing that could not
There had been ill-feeling between
Mr. Ton pkips and Mr. iDunn for the
past live or six years, caused by some
misuuderstanding, and since then Mr.
Tompkins has never let an opportunity
pass that he would not villify Mr.
Dunn. Mr. Tompkins would in the
I meantime become friendly again with
Mr. Dunn, only in a bhort time to
again say something disparagingly
against him, or of the manner iu which
he was conducting his onice. Mr.
l)unn was never heard to say anything
a:gailnst Mr. Tompkins, except when he
would hear of thete remarks against
him. It has often been predicted that
there would be a shooting scrape to
take place between them, and that one
n! or the other would be killed, or per
l.ast week Mr. Tompkins circulated
the report in the second ward, where
on Mr. )Dunu has the staunchest kind of
triends a:uong the leading citizens of
th Itat ward, that he([)unu,) had allowed
in two prisoner,, who are coutined in jail,
ke to he turuetl out at nights and to
atl walk the streets. These remarks of
t Mr. 'T'ompkis about Mr. D)un were
toul to him, which he branded as lies.
- On 6- urday morning Mr. Tomp
i kins told a gentleman by the uanme of
as R. J. Weatherly, who bas lately come
,l to our parish to reside, that Mr. E J.
lamley, one of the lbadiug and pro
agl eesive citizens of our town, was a
iscow thief ai(l that he had the proof.
p- Mr. Woatherly had never met Mr.
r linamley, but told Mr. Dunu what he
had heard, anid as he was a stranger
Ce lie did not know whether to believe
what Mr. Tonmpkins told him or not,
r- and asked Mr. Dunn if it was so.
Mr. Dunu told Mr. Weatherley that
Mr. ilamnily was his personal friend
and that they would go together and
inform Mr. ilaimley what he had said,
r which they did. Judge Ransdell hav
Sintg heard what was going ou, went to
e Mr. Tompkinus to the interest of peace
0 in thu con unuuity and to try and pre
vent trouble. Mr. Tompkins denied
n making these remarks, but was very
e severe in his language towards both
e Mr. Danu and Mr. Hlamley. 'ILis made
t Mr. Tompkins furious, who bad al
- ready armed himself during the morn
I, lg hours. At Urias Cone's restau.
r rant he took dinner, where Messrs.
SWill II. Davis and Clark Maben
were also eating at the time,
r and he told them that be would
- kill both Hamley and Dunn be.
- fore evening. These gentlemen told
Mr. Hamley what they had heard, but
failed to see Mr. Dunn, who was at
home. Mr. Dunn was in town on
the morning of the killing, but went
home, and did not return to town
until about four o'clock, when he went
immediately to the post office to get
his mail. After getting it he crossed
the street to Maguire & Schneider's
store on his way home, when he saw
Judge Itansdell coming up Scarbor
ough street. He waited for him and
both gentlemen walked to the office "
building of launedell & Rianedell, and
had walked on the inside of the double
gate and were conversing, when in a
few moments Mr. Tompkins was seen
approaching towards them. fie must
have been watching for Mr. Dunn.
As he came up to the fence he cursed,
at the samte time striking the top of the
fence with his left hand and saying he
"wanted to know who told those lies
about me," and Mr. Dunn replied, '-1
am the man who said so, and you can
resent it if you want." Both men
pulled their pistols at the same time,
and both going offat the same instant,
or perhaps Mr. I)unn being the first
to fire. The first shot front Mr.
Dunu's pistol struck Mr. Tompkins
square in the heart, going clear through
the body, which was the only shot to
hit himnt. The first shot from Mr.
Tompkits' pistol went through the 2x4
rail of the fence, the second shot struck
Mr. Dunn's right index finger, tearing
away a small piece of flesh at the
nuckle and lust touching the elbow,
where it came out; the third shot made
a slight flesh wound above the left nip
ple and the fourth shiot carried away
his watch charm. Nine shots were
fired, six by Mr. 'l'ompkiuns and three
by Mr. Dunn. After Mr. Tompkius
was shot he leaned against the fence
for a few seconds and thenou fell to the
sidewalk a corpse.
Mr. Dunn's vest, coat and overcoat
have twelve or fifteen holes in them,
where the bullets pased in and out.
It was a narrow escape for Mr, Dunne.
Shortly after the killing of Mr.
Tompkins, a coroner's jury was em
paneled by Squtire Egelly, who view.
ed the body and adjourned until Mon
day; but no evidence was taken as
court would meet ard the grand jury
would iuvestigate the killing. Upon
convening of ct:ourt on Monday morn- tion
lug and after the grand jury had been
given the charge by Judge Ranedell, of t
he requested that bqdy to make it sat
their first business as a favor to him. 'e
self and Mr. Dutn, which was done.
Judge Ranedell and Judge J. M. Ken-. goo
nedv, eye witnesses, and Mr. W. H. it
Davis, Mr. Clark Maoou and others
were called before them, who gave the
about the same testimony as above. that
T'Lbe grand jury made a thorough in

of Mr. Tompkiune justifiable and Mr. nor
)Dunu was honorably discbarged.

Mary, aged 12 years, who died with

them only a few months ago with Mrs
Wrn. Berry, a sister of M re. Frost, who N
had taken her to give her a thorough cam
education, and it was while attending tims
college that she was taken with pnea- aun
monia. She was taken to the home of ant
Mrs. Berry, and was almost well, when
she had a relapse. It was a sad, sad
blow to her devoted and affectionate
mother, who already had sorrow and
enough, and the death of this sweet that
girl has broken the heart of the Mis
mother. She has our deepest and sin- will
cere sympathy in her affliction. The Wet
remainus of the little girl were brought
home on Tuesday and the funeral ser
vice was conducted by Rev. Mr. Den
