I'n.ss it, Tli.n llolh M.ii limply 1 1telr His 8lnxly nml Cli. Vitllltrlll.s In ,t limit Mi Hour. Otic of llio most unfortunate tragc (Huh over chronicled In Kddy county occurred Saturday night at 7 o'clock nt 1'hcnlr. the saloon town about n mllo south of Kddy. ISoth men were lu Mm saloon of ilitrllold & Tee. Cliovalllor passed McDanlel mid .Jeff Sykes In the doorwuy between the buIooii und danco hall. Kro Alcliatncl luia crossed the room of tho daucu bull lie lieurd Che vilirrlr t-all hlni 10 Htip, which ho did. CliovnlllPr tlion crowed the room to whero McDanlel wits Atundlng, making Kuinu lenmrk uud holding his hnnd on his hln wicket, MoDunlcl told him to throw III) hln hiinds but he Instead pull od his gun. A ho did so MuDnnlel llred, the Ural aliot taking effect on tho right side of the neck ranging uown under the collar bone and coining out about ono inch from tho buck bono bo tween the shoulders. Tho room being full of Hiuoko after' the llrst shot no olher shots took effect, though Chovul Her fired tils rovolver four tunes nud McDunlol live times. Chevnlllor then walked to tho bur In the front room and ruvo un IiIk aim. Inyliig 11 on tho bar. Immediately becoming tutnt he wus naught while falling, by bystand ers, who luld him down on the Door In front of tho bur, carrying him from there to a bed. Dr. Kcnsltiger wr,s summoned and juudo an examination of tho wounded man and madohls con dition as easy ns possible. Win. llarlleld and Tom Williamson were stundlng In the door between the dunce hall and saloon when tho men wore shouting, while Jeff Sykes was within two feet of Chevalller when the llrst Bhot wus lltod. Chovulller was ar rested Christmas bv McDanlel, and loeked up over night lu the littlo lock, up at l'hetilx, for tlNHikenliMn arl flourishing n slX-shootor. McDanlel did not lllo cotnplulnt, but Instead turned Chevalller loose next day. II nil it com plaint been tiled ho would have been fined at leoBt 950 and costs, und proba. bly laid the whole out in jail at u cost ot 840 or WO to ho county und no ben efit to himself. Since Christmas Che valller, despite tho udvico or his friends, nt different times .threatened to run McDanlel out of thecountry. MeDan. lei, being a ifofluty sheriff, decided to stund his ground. Chevalller had used very insulting language toward Mc Danlel at different times, uud during ull this McDanlel remained pusslve, and from till tho evidence produced it would seem hus tried to esoupe this Inst tragic occurrence to the best of l.h; ability. Kll was ono of the most genial and unlet fellows over to sot foot in Kddy, but It would seem had Imbibed a dlsllku to McDanlel since spending a night in tho lock-up. Justice Iloberts munitioned tho fol lowing rltUCns and held and inquest over the remains Sunday: W. W.lltish, M. 1. Kerr, sr., Tom Jones, Xlb Jones, II. OhnomiiB, M. W. W indom. Tim re; suit of the coroner's Inquest wus to the effect that deceased, Kll Chevalller cuitte to his death by e gun shot wound ut the bunds of Frank McDanlel. .

District Attorney Franklin nppoured for the territory and V. S. Uulemun for tho defense, while Stenographer Driggi recorded tho evidence. Win. llarlleld was the llrst witness and ho testllled to Chevalller calling on McDanlel to stop after passing him In tho doorway. Dr. Kenslnger testified to whero tho mor tal wound took effect. Joff Sykes tcs 1 1 lied to Chovulller stepping up close to McDanlel ond suylng: "I understand you say you arc the best man in the county," at the same time pulling his six-shooter. Others testified to having conversations with Chevalller. who stated that ho Intended to kill McDan lel. Aftf r tho evidence was In. Justice Iloberts summed tip the ease, saying ho felt It a disagreeable duty to decide the matter, but undor the evidence could not hold the defendant olid there fore dUchurged him, fully believing that tho shooting was In self dofence. Kll Chevalller was born In 1857 In Ilaplds parish Louisiana, Ills parents were neighbors or Copt. D. C. Paul, with whom Kll cutne to Kddy county in December, I8l2. Sincothenho was employed for the llrst six months with his brother Joe, who cuuio with him, in opening a forty-acre tract for farming. Joe returned to Louisiana the next summer ond Kll went to work for (lib son, tho man killed by John Densott. Kll worked until tho full or lBUI for Olbson, and since then wus employed by W, W. Hush In tlio butcher business forking at tho slaughter hottso tho greater portion of tho time. Kll had many friends among thoso with whom ho became acquainted whllo lu Kddy, all of whom sincerely regret his fearful death, though none appear to censuro tho deputy sheriff, whom it Is generally believed was compelled to shoot or glvo up to a citizen who, despite tho strln gent law against carrying deadly weon ons, had gouo armed for somo time Tins Is tho only phase of the wholo at fair which all law-abiding citizens dep rlcato: for no good citizen ever carries n slx-shootor In tho dally pursuit of his avocation, and Kit had u six-shooter and miiBt have carried It for u purpose.
