BRUTAL MURDER COMMIT
TED NEAR THE CITY.
THE VICTIM AN INNOCENT OLD
COLORED WOMAN.
Hhe Fought Bravely for her Life
but waa Overpowered Mo
Clue to the Murderer.
A most brutal murder oeeurrcd three
miles west of the eity on Saturday night.
Ily it Ilnrriet Williams, an aged colored
woman, lost her life. The partieulars are
sickening.
Early yesterday morning Harry I'ark.
a colored man who lived near the scene
of the tragedy, went in search of his
horse, which had wandered away during
the night. His walk took him past the
cuhin which was occupied by Harriet
Williams. When near the back door he
heard groans from the inside and think
ing something might have befallen her lie
nieued the door. There n terrible sight
presented itself to him. On the floor ut
the opposite side of the room and lying
in a poolol hcrown blood lay the woman,
Two bloody axes were at her side.
Frightened nearly out of his wits the fel
low ran to some houses near by and
liiickly summoned the inmates. They
hastened to the scene as soon us possible
mil entered the house. The surroundings
told the story
Clad onlv in her night clothes ami
bleeding profuselv from seven ghustly
wounds the woman was lying on the
lloor with her head resting on the hot
loin step of the stairs that led to the u
1KT storv. Near bv her lay two axes
ovcrcd with blood, and scattered about
1 the room were dilTerent articles of furni
lure, wearing apparel and furniture that
'old plainer than words of tlic terrible
struggle that had taken place during the
"'B1'1
The woman was not yet dead, al
though unconscious. She was helped to
the bed and every effort made to revive
her, but it was vain und an hour later
lie died, without having uttered a
word.
The victim of this brutal murder was
i highly rcsicclcd, industrious and sav
nig woman, l or three years sue lias
lived entirely alone in the little house
where she met her death Saturday night
It is one of five cabins just oil' of the Hay
wood road. The nearest house is eighty
yards away and is occupied by 1 lames
Henderson. Forty yards farther bv
the family of Joseph l.atimore and at a
listaucc of 1.10 and 100 yards resjiect
ivelv live the families of Barrv Barks and
Mr. A verv Alexander.
For sonic time past the Williams wo
man has worked nt dill'crciil places
the city during the week, ic!idiiig only
Sunday nt her home. On Saturday she
worked at the residence ol Geo. W. l'aek
and in the evening left as usual to sciid
Sunday at her little cabin. When about
a half mile distant she slopicd at the
store of Fletcher Reynolds to purchase
some groceries und while there talked
md joked good naturciHy with the clerk.
While paying for her goods a live dollar
bill dropH'd to the floor and one of the
livstandcrs picked it tip. The clerk no
ticed the action and looking up he said:
"What would you say Harriett, if I
were to tell you that von had lost some
money
"I should tell vou that you might keep
all that vou found," she replied. "1 have-
not lost any money."
With that the man behind the counter
handed the bill to her. She replaced it in
her pockethook and carelessly remarking
that she had $.1 more ut home to g
with it left the store.
After she hail arrived ut her home she
was seen several times. Twice she was
about the yard for wood and water, anil
once she went to the l.atimore house to
get some milk for her ten. The last
time she wus seen was about tight
o'clock.
No cries were heard from the house
luring the night. No suspicious (icrsons
were seen about the neighborhood and
the whole affair is shrouded in mv-
tery.
coroner milium summoned a jury
comHsed of J. W. Stnrncs, C. F. I'cnni-
man, J. M. Cunipbell, K. M. Denver, M
II. Moucyhnn, M, M. Ledlijrd, and an
iti(ucst wus held. The post mortem re
vealed three bloody and deep gashes
made in the head, a gush at the shoulder
that cut to the bone and one on cither
arm. A slight cut had been made on
the ankle. The evidence was substan
tially ns above, und from the npcarnncc
of the room it was evident that the
struggle hud been a long and desperate
one,
The murder was doubtless committed
by a would-lic robber who knew that the
womna hud some money about her per
son and who secreted himself in the house
until she had retired. The victim always
slept with an axe ut the head of Iter bed
and one was standing at the wall near
the rear door. When all was quiet in the
night it is supioscd that the murderer
come from his hiding place, nnd while
moving about the room aroused the
womahi She jumped to her feet and
grasped the wenpon. He took up the
other axe and the struggle began. The
door at the front was hacked as were the
stairs and one of the axe helves showed
two fresh cuts that told of a blow that
hud fullen short of Its mark. The man
was undoubtedly the stronger of the
two und the victory was his. Leaving
victim on the floor he turned
.the dress she bad taken off
and looked for the money. He cut the
..!, r. it u i. r "

keys and perhaps some money and fled
That he did not get all of her money, and
pcrhnps none, was discovered late In the
- If, ....1...e. 1., I. !...!
Hiicruuun. a hi iakhl-l uuiik tuiiuiiiiinu-
we vered with Uaod nnd to one hair
adhered which upon investigation proved 1
to have come from the head of the mur
dered woman. It is the opinion of De
tective Denver, however, that the man
was wounded in the struggle.
Sometime ago she told her friends that
she had money in the bank. No bunk
book was found yesterday nnd it is
thought that it was taken.
The murdered woman was about 53
years old and was, in old slavery days,
the proicrty of Senator Vance, and
later was given to the Kev. K. N. I'rice.
She was known to the citizens of Ashe-
ville better by the name of Harriet Vance
than by the name of Williams. The hit
tcr was the name of her husband who
deserted her twenty-three years ugo,
The coroner's jury adjourned without
agreeing upon a verdict nnd will hold an
other meeting. The case is in the hand
of the sheriff and the officers urc doing
their best to run the murderer down, but
as yet there is positively no clew. The
funeral took place at 3 o'clock this after
noon from Wilson's Chiicl, about a mile
from the home of the dead woman.
GOSSIP OF THE DAY.
It has been suggested that the dark
tjreeii staudpiK' that looms portentous!
into view from Benumoiit would loo
much liettcr if it had liecn erected with
view to beautv as well as utility. The
truth that there is in this suggestion
apparent to the dullest intellect. How
much belter the water would taste if the
slniuliiiiic was to be decorated with
snakes of the time of Confucius nnd I
.mis of the I'aleooic lwriotl, in a simple
blending of ancient arts that would be
simply iiTCKistmic: Ami wlmt a grace
the whole thing would give to the land
scaie if some very iipronis subject like
"The Naiad's Bath" or "A Morning Di
lioulil lie artistically cmiilazoucd iiKn
the present dullness of the tank! The
scheme of having artistic standpiH.'8 nnd
water towers is by no means new to the
world, and sonic philanthropist might
isily win name and fume for himself I:
presenting to Ashcvdle the services ol
loiue skillful fellow who should be cm
powered to make the dull unsightliuc
if the big water holder change to the
doom of the rose. The whole thing
:ull of a suggestive interest that has lice
resented to the Gossiicr us n thing
worthy of comment, and it is here pre
scntcd to un anxious world with a fc
suggestions tacked on.
Now the New York Sun has gone into
the business of giving to lovely woman
crtain interesting points on how to
make herself even more attractive tha
he really is. First the Sun culls nttcn
lion to the lack of grace und steadiness
in carriage which has lx-come ureal alllie
ion to i ne iriencis ol tnc many young
women who tumble und slide and trii
idling the streets while out walking. Next
the Sun assails the luck of melodious
voices among the American women, and
complains of the "discords we hear so
frequently ; the flatness, the shrillness,
the indistinctness, the nasal quality, the
false modulation, the distressing empha
sis."
The Sun has reasons for asking for re
form in these directions, and it would
also have excellent arguments in plciit
to urge, if it cared to, against the same
faults among men. On some of the streets
f Ashcvillc it would lie a very hard mat
ter for any man to walk with the ease
md Bareness ol fooling that ought to
characterize the practiced cdcstrian
but the argument would still hold that
iiK)ii very few roads of any kind wouli
the American man walk 'vith astvleth
would entitle him to praiscful attention
s for the voices of many men, they will
easily take ns many demerit marks as the
voices of the women. Iiidistiiictncssaui
lack of cultivation urc two of the worst
of the besetting sins, although the others
are nil there with them. (Juitc a rurit.
is the mull who can spring gracefully
his feet at o dinner or upon n platform
and treat the assembled auditors to a
neat, compact bundle of arguments nnd
remarks uttered in a pleasant, easy, well
modulated tone that fulls upon the cur
with the smooth pleasing of the mellow
lute, or even with the harmonious dis
turbance of a buss drum when in the
hands of an artist whose soulful, earnest
thoughtful thumpings ure full ol careful
anxiety to please and hopefulness that
each distinct und separate biff shall have
its due value in the homogeneous blow
ings and bunging of the memlx-rsof a big
iirnss bund. Juitc a runty, too, is the
fellow who cun give un order in -a store
or restaurant without having the clerk
or waiter come back to ask him to try it
over and tell them once again what some
particular thing was that he mumbled
over without sufficient clearness to make
himself understood.
Here s a sensible remark from u book
on "Delicate Fcusting" which has re
cently come from the Hiiriiers' press
Kitchen' wine and 'kitchen' butter are
futnl to good cookery." Mr. Theodore
Child, who wrote the book, tins arrived
ut the foundation of one of the vicious
practices of certain housckcciicra who
think that it is all right to use any kind
of cutublc truck in cooking which they
find to Ik too cheap, too rancid -or too
tasteless, or too miserable in apiicarancc
to place before their guests upon the ta
ble. It is probably not necessary to em
ploy gilt-edged butter or the most deli
cate of wines and liqueurs in the prepa
ration of sonic very dainty dishes; but
the use of the white, lard-like grease and
the ghustly liquids, costly at twenty-five
cents a gallon, which the queens of the
kitchen often make prominent ingredi
ents of an otherwise pleasingly con
structed dish, should be discouraged in
every proicrly managed household. If
man was made to deprive the bogs of
their own best dishes turn him at the
" i
trough with the noble animals nnd give
all an equal chance; but don't force them
upon him at the table under easily pene
trable disguises.
