Coulter, 55 years old, and his son, Harry Coulter, about 23 years old, of Dyer, were both shot and instantly killed here this afternoon by J. A. Al- ford, hardware merchant of Rutherford. The killing occurred at the Mobile & Ohio depot as the Coulters were about to board the north- bound afternoon train for their home, a few miles north of here, in Dyer. The affair is greatly deplored by the friends of both the Coulter and the Alford families, and U the outcome of a series of family trou bles extending over a number of months. The Coulters are well known and prom inent citizens of the county, as are the Alfords. W, S, Coulter was considered to be one of the leading members of the Gibson County bar, and his son, Harry, was likewise fast making a record of being a highly talented young lawyer. Mr. Coulter, Sr., was possibly one of the wealthiest citizens in the county. ' The morning train from the north brought a large crowd of people from the upper sections of this county to at tend the present term of the Circuit Court here. With this crowd came the two Coulters and J. A. Alford. There was no intimation of any trouble until this afternoon. The "dinky" from the north came into the station. - Alford, who had evidently left on the south bound train, arriving some thirty min utes before, and had boarded the north bound train at Fruitland, a few miles south of Trenton, stepped off with oth er passengers, and in a few moments began to empty an automatic pistol at the father. Upon his falling to the ground, Alford turned and directed his fire at the young man, who was in the act of climbing into a day coach. Having shot the young man down, he turned and fired a last shot into the prostrate form of the older man, and then calmly replaced his weapon in his hip pocket. There were nine shots fired, seven taking ef fect; three of them struck the young man and four the older one. All shots completely pierced the body of each, i Immediately after the shooting Alford called out that he would give himself up, and in a few minutes surrendered to Constable Overall, of Rutherford, who happened to be near at hand, Al- j ford was armed with a pair of auto- mm if s ?.!;bcr p:;tcb, IcLJ steel bullets. J. A. Alford is a prominent citizen of Rutherford and is engaged at present in the furniture business. He is a man of perhaps 40 years of age, and is the son-in-law of W. P. Elrod, a prominent banker of the county, living at Ruther ford. He has borne a good reputation in his home community as being a man of quiet and peaceable manner. W. 8. Coulter had been prominent in the affairs c4 this county for a number 0 of years. He was a son of the late Maj. J. M. Coulter, who died only a few years ago. He was in every respect a self-made man and at & late age be gan the practice of law, in which pro fession he has achieved unusual suc cess. He ia survived by a daughter, Mrs. Hattie Belle Hays, of Dyer, and a brother, Boone Coulter, of Union City. - The affair has stirred the entire com munity and Trenton is to-night filled with tho friends of both parties. Mr. Alford could not be reached this evening, being in consultation with his attorneys. ' ' Real Estate Transfers. Mrs. Fannie Thomas to C. B. Roach, lot in No.- 1G, $1,800. Jas. F. Gardner to H. T.
