Monday evening this week was
the time appointed for a meeting of
the council to consider applications for
saloon licenses, but there failed to bo
a quorum present. Only two eouneil-
men, Richards and Armstrong, and the
Mayor and clerk, wore present. Mr.
Broady was on hand as the attorney of
the law and order portion of the com
munity, with prepared protests against
granting licenses to Fraker, Campbell
or Kousehkolb on the petitions and
bonds of these men, which failed in
several essential matters of being in
accordance with tlio law. There be
ing no published time set now for a
meeting of tlio council, the Mayor and
clerk promised Mr. Brondy that they
would notify him duly of the next
time and placo of meeting and they
will probably do so.
The man that' Kinrl Heady killed
was known here as ".Jim" Miller, but
his real name appears to havo been
Walker Miller. The parties lived near
a little town called Smnrlville, a few
miles west of Tecuinseh. Mrs. Miller,
the wife of the murdered man, was in
this city Thursday last, for the purpose,
ro understand, of employing counsel
to prosecute her brother foi killing her
husband. .She was questioned regard
ing the particulars of the tragical event
that made her a widow. She said
Kiiui, with her husband and herself,
had been to Tecuinseh through the
day, and went home together in the
evening. Heady and Miller, each of
them, had a revolver, and on the roajl
homo they had them out shooting and
handling them in a careless manner.
The men had some unpleasant con
troversy. Heady in some way got pos
session of Miller's pistol, and refused
to give it up when demanded; this led
to further quarreling, and to a scullle,
in which Heady hit Miller on the head
with a bottle. Nothing serious occur
red then however, and Miller and
his wife went on to Ileady's hotisef
where they were staying for the night,
calculating to start tor ilrownville next
morning. Heady remained outside
the house, refusing to go in until 'Mrs.
Miller went to the door and asked him
to "come in,"thnt Walker was ail rigid
now, not angry, and had gone to bed.
Heady lefiHod.for awhile, but finally
rushed into the house with a drawn
pistol, boisterously cursing, threaten
ing, and'llourishing his weapon. Mis.
Miller threw her arms around him,
begging him to desist and put away
his pistol. Miller then got up,'a scullle
ensued, Heady told his sister, who still
had hold of him. to get out of the way
for he was going to shoot. She seeing
tlio danger sprang back, the pistol was
fired at that instant.and Miller fell shot
through the' body, and died within fif
teen minutes. Heady, as soon as he
had done his most blood work left the
house and went over to Smartville.
where the ollicers found anil arrested
lia in. Miller told his wife, to go for a
doctor, that he was going to die, and
she iinmediarely started and went to
Tecuinseh, told of the trouble, and had
a warrant at once issued for her broth
We stated last week that Heady killed
Miller in defense of his sister. Wo
had heard none of the particulars of
the matter at that time and based our
statement on a rumor and a prevailing
belief amongst those best acquainted
wi.h all the p-irties, that that was the
cause of the homicide. This belief had
a foundation. Some ten days ago Mil
ler was in Iirownville, and while un
der the intluencc of strong drink spoke
pretty freely his mind onj a certain
matter. He and the man who killed
him but recently returned here from
Dead wood, where they had been for
probably two years.leaving their wives'
in this neighborhood. Miller said to
several of his acquaintances that he
had evidence that his wife had played
him false while ho was gone, and that
lie intended to kill her. To one man
hero he said: "When you go to Lincoln
call at the penitentiary and see me, for
I expect to be there or in hell before
While there it not tlio least doubt
that Miller talked in that way to sev
eral of our citizens, who told us about
it but a few days ago, it would seem
from Mrs. Miller's story of the circum
stances immediately connected with
the tragedy, and her apparent determi
nation to prosecute the slayer of her
husband, brother though he is,, that
everything was lovely between her
and her huslmnd, or that she had at
least as yet no great fear of him. It
also appears from Miller's talk and
threats at the time above stated that
he had no love for the Heady boys,
and that a bitter family lend existed
amongst them, which needed only the
stimulating iniluence of whisky to pre
cipitate death and misery upon tlio
Heady did not try to escape, wo learn,
and claims that he did the killing in
self defenso. Hut his sister's testi
mony will hang him or send him up
for life, if she tells the same story in
court that she does elsewhere. Tlio
verdict of the coroner's jury was that
the killing was premeditated and fel
onious. The Courier and Post are strug.
gllng manfully to get up a quarrol bo
