Governor Knoblkch Shot to
Death on the Streets by
James Cherault. d
Accused Admitted to Bail. t
Last Monday morning our usually o
quiet community was startled and I
electrified by the sad news of the It
tragie killing of ex Lieutenant Gov- Y
sr-or Clay Knobloch by James ti
Cherault. The news spread rapidly a
and expressions of regret and sorrow a
were beard on all sides as eager in-. t
quirie for the particulars of the 4
terrble tragely were made as people
mt passing to and fro or ceogre
edsele sma bMeets hue sd th P
to discuss the sad occurrence. d
At first particulars were scarce tl
and hard to get. but gradually it h
became generally known whabut had
taken place after the report of the
first shot fired.
Prior to this first sLot no oth.-r eye
witness than the accusedl himself has
to the present writing been foundl;
anod according to his testimony given
on the preliminary trial, after some
conversation about a matter which
had been previously broached to hm
by the deceased on two separate
previous ccasions, and about which
the deceased had threatened to ki:i
his (Cherault's) son Eddie, the de
ceased remarked: 'I've got a double
barreled shot gun, loaded with buck
shot, and I am going to kill her
father, her brother, and Eddie, your
son." That thereupon, Cherault
said: "If it comes to that, Governor,
I will be a witness against you for
what you have told me since last
Friday night." That then the de
ceased took a step or two backwards
towards the edge of a show window,
and drew his pistol on Cherault;
whereupon Cherault quickly drew his
weapon and commenced fring and
kept up firing until the deceased's
pistol dropped, then turned and walk
al sway towards the court house,
and surrendered himself on the way
thereto to constable Max Dupr6
whom be met, and to whom he said
In answer to a question as to what
had happened: "Thank God I I was
quicker than the Governor."
The whole unfortunate oceurrece
was a matter of very abort duration,
sad took plane at a time when there
were few people about The seems
of the tragedy was on Main street, a
few feet (25 or 30) from the Cherault
Barber Shop. Dr. Fleetwood, who
was at his drug store, corner Main
and St. Philip streets, with has back
to the scene, bad his attention at
tracted by the first shot. He turned tl
at once, saw the second and subse- 0
quent shots, and ran to the place o
where the tragedy occurred, a dis- ti
tanee of about sixty feet; the deceas- F
ed had sunken to the ground and was
unconscious when he reached these- 8
so quick had everything taken place. P
Within a very few minutes, asses- P
tance had reached the unfortunate Il
man who was in a dying condition,
and measures of relief at once inas- cl
gurated. Drs. Fleetwood and P. J. *
Dansereau having pronounced his *
case hopeless, the priest was hastily t
summ:oned, and Rev. Father Dubourg
reached his side in quick order, and I
hurriedly ministered to him before he tl
passed away.
Dr. Fleetwood who was the first to
reach the unfortunate dying man saw
a pistol near his body on his left side,
which when examined by Sherif
Beary who got there four or five
minutes after the shooting, was found
to he a 32 calibre Smith & Wesson,
with all the chambers fully loaded.
This is the pistol which, according to
C'herault's testimony, the deceased o
had drawn on him and with which he
tried to shoot hmun. Why the pistol
was not discharge cannot be explsto
ed except on the theory that Ch'rault 5
was too quiek In his actiob tot the
deceased, saod that his Inrt shot took
seet sad disabled the deceased. o
The sad uasir is uaiversally de
plored; the deceased having been a
man of much prominence in the
paulshb; Cherault a respected citizen;
and the two had been always looked
upon as good friends The prdlim
loary examination of James Cherault
was held on Tuesday afternoon, the
State being represented by Distr.ct
Attorney W. P. Martin, and the ae
clsed by the law firm of Cugnet &
Knobloch, and upon it's conclusion
the accusel was released on bond by 1
Judge Caillouet.
A lur Thing
It is said that nothing is sure ex
cept death and taxes, but that is not
altogether true. Dr. King's New
Discovery for Consumption is a sure
care for all long and throat troubles.
Thoonands can testify to that. Mrs.
C. B. VanMetre of Shepherdtowno,
W. V., says "I had a severe case of 5
Brouchitis and for a year tried every.
thing I heard of, but got no relief. g

Confederate Reunion.
Our metropolis, New Orleans, was
literally in charge of the Confederate
Veterans this week, who held a three
days' reunion there. The "oIl boys 1
in grey" were in evidence every where
and "there was nothing too good for
them." They had come from all over
the South and there were thousand le
of them. There were parades, re
nions, speech-making, hand-shak
logs, yelling-the old Confederate'
yell-yarn spinning ,ad libitdum, and
the thousand and one little things and w
acts which go to make a successful f
social affair and tend to confer upon
the participants what the world is
agreed to call "a good time."
No doubt, the old -'vett" have had
"a good time" of it all, and we of the
presset gl ersUo rejoice that they
did;'ad eulettein the hope and utter
the wish that they may live long to
have many other annual reunions a
repetition of tlhat 'good time."

The Casket declares that .'the sing. w
gingr of a non union man" is no more
morally wrong than the deliberate so
ruining of another man's busincw. d
,The latter is just as wrong as the a
former," says our esteemned cootem-i a
poraryr. "The independent buslnes c
man is considered an enemy of the at
trust or combine; the con union man,te
in enemy of the union. There is this
hlaerence, however; any workman
may join the union; not every iade
iendent business man may join the
:ombiue, but only those whom the
)rganisers of the combhie think it
worth while to admit. There is an.
>ther dilerence; when capital com
nite its acts of violence, labor suffers;
when labor conmmit its acts of vin
ence, lahor suffers again; it pays the

when overcome by supe; or capital.
Pllrefore, our sympathies are always
with labor."
