Wood' version of the killing coincide
with other reliable report io so fares
it aLowe that the attack oo ber hus
band waa made while hia back w'
tamed and that all the wound were in
hia back and aide. Mr. Wood Rived
lobg circumstantial account ct the mur
der and slate that he haa evidence in
her poeeaaion that the death of hei
hnsbaod waa the result of a conspiracy
by his enemies to get him out of the
war. She aoonaea Judge Botkin of the
Steven county district, against whom
Mr. Wood caused impeachment pro
ceeding to be brought in the last legis
lature, and County Attorney O'Conner

the state supreme court, with being the
3bief conspirator. James Brennan, the
mufdeier ehe aays waa only their will

eonapiracy Mr. Wood recite the fol
lowing incident: "A littes son of ex
Judge Njsh aaid in the preDce of Mr.
Fleming of Ulyaaea as we drove into
town. "There coma Sam Wood and
they are going to kill him today." A

he wsa talking too much. In conclusion
Mrs. Wood says: "I havs not the slight
est hope that any of the murderers,
whether ia offioial or unofficial stations

vigilant supression of the slave trade
along the coast, and the consequent in
ability of the warlike races to dfopise

revival in the most temb'e form of
alaugbter and bloodshed which former

with Smith doing the most leading.
Fiom the forty second to the forty

tbe sudden departure of Harrison fir

besides, as 1 had just entered the mar

the separation of two loving hearts,
but I promised to care for the ship
owner's daughter as far as wis in my
power, and the interview terminated.
The following morning my wife and
I went abaard the Norseman, which

that a man or bis intelligence and ap

than that of carpenter's mate on a

His reply was that his limited re
source had prevented his gratifying
