sheriff's posso to givo their father
and brothers tlmo to escape, Mrs.
Charles Daniels and her sixteen-year-old
daughter were shot to death
yesterday near Davon, Mingo coun
ty, by the officers. The shooting of
Mrs. Daniels and her daughter grew
out of a family feud between tho
Christians and Daniels on tho border
of Kentucky and West Virginia. Tho
Christians lived in Mingo county,
West Virginia, and the Daniels in
Pike county, Kentucky. About three
weeks ago George Christian ventured
to the Kentucky side and, was slain
by Jim Daniels. Christian and Dan
iels were brothers-in-law and had
formerly been allies. After the kil
ling of Christian tho two families
and their friends became involved.
Tho Christians obtained warrants for
Jim Daniels and his brother Charles,
and led a posse of Pike county offi
cers to the homo of the Daniels.
When the officers appeared within a
few feet of the house, Mrs. Daniels
and her daughter opened fire with
rifles, one of the posse receiving a
bullet in the arm. The Christians
opened fire. Mrs. Daniels was shot
down In the doorway, but the daugh
ter stood over her prostrate form
and fired upon the posse until she
dropped dead across her mother,
pierced by three bullets. Tho officers
closed in, but by forfeiting their
lives the mother and daughter had
so effectually covered the retreat of
father and brothers that the latter
made their escape.

long imprisonment 'without trial led
a year ago to a movement hero and
in England by which a cash bail bond

tho civilized world believes, has been
