In the case of the State of Nebraska
vs. llulbert L. Kellogg, on an indict
ment for the murder of Robert J. Pal
mer on the l9.h day of August, 167:
Jacob Yah'ery I reside in Platts
inouth. I was iti front o: Stadelmann's
store when Palmer was shut on the
19Ji of Augu.:. Iffcird Palmer make
loud remarks. He was in f ror,t of
Muthis' old B ktry on Mai:, t'.rct,
Cass county, Nebraska. I was facing
towards Tu'iner. He stepped up cn
the trough and aluok his ILt al same
one who was Standing near a team.
The other man reached to his pocket,
drew a revolver and shot Palmer.
Palmer stepped down and acted like
he was trying to draw a revolver. He
stepped around, and the other man shot
again. Palmer then started up street,
saying he was shot. The other man
.vent across the street. They appear
ed tj be watching each other. Palmer
had nothing in his hand. He was not
hi ftriking distance of the ether man
Don't Know what Palmer said; he talk
ed h'ud ai;d u -d s:::ie profane words.
They en lied the man Kellogg who shut;
I think the rrisonor is tho tame man.
Think it wati tin fir.-t s-hot that hit Pal
mer; he was up high. Bjth were
standing still. Think the f hot va? find
over backs of hort-es; was looking t
him when he shot; he fired i:i front the
second time. Pri oner stood further
west when second shot was fired; were
facing each other when first shot was
fired Palmer was going past the wag
on when the second shot was fired, and
was tideways to Kellogg. If the first
shot had missed Palmer the ball would
probably have hit the building five .'eet
up from the ground. TYp of trough
was about two feet above the level cf
ground. Kellogg was ttatulirg on the
ground when he fired." The ball hole
in biiildLig is about two feet above doer
sill. I was we?! and south from parties
when shots were, fired. They were
not more than eight feet apart when
the first shct was filed, and five cr six
feet further at second. Palmer appear
ed to be endeavoring to fire at Kellogg
when Kellogg fired the second time,
floie in door ranges too far west for
first shct; it ecu!.! not have been made
by the first slot have examined the
hole and range. Palmer was gi ing
wst vh?n the ?e:oi:d shct was fired,
and kept on after the shot was fired.
Kellogg went towards the center of the
street after the second shot. Palmer
came to Stadehnann's after he was .-hut;
I saw where he was shot, a little to the
rijdil ar,J above iho navel.
Cros Examined. The wagon and
hr.r; ea wl re between me and Pal.ner.
Kr!kgg v.ii m th-" same si.! 2 I was.
The team was h'-aded ncrth-en-t. I
cou'd see inoU cf Palmer's body; he
might have had a pi tol in his haul
a hen talking to Kelb-gg, but I think
not. I could see P!-.wr reach to his
pocket after he got down off the tr-nigh.
Am not positive ho put his horid into
his p K-kct, but it Iokf-J that way.
Think Palmer was trying to get arcund
the wagon to shoct Kellogg v. hen Kel
logg fired the socond time. I could
see th? pistol in Kcilogg's hand plain
when he shot firs t time.
Re-direct. Palmer stepped a few
paces north after first shot.
Jas. O'Neill. I was in Plaltsmctith
cm l-.i 19 h of August last; was sitti-ig
beside Hanna's old store at the time of
the ilioothig; was a little ea.-t a:.d width
of street south of parties about fc'J
feet distant. Shooting occurred about
neon. Saw Palmer stop up on the
platform or trough, and heard him talk
loud to Kellogg. First I recolIt.it of
hearing him say wns to the efTett that
Kellogg had a loaded p'stol, and that
he must leave the country. lie repeat
ed two or three times that Kcdlcgg
must leave the country, and was repeat
ing'it when Kellogg shot. Saw th.i
smoke rf :he pistol both li.nes when
Kellogg fired. Palmer had nothing in
hisj hand that I could see. Kellogg
stood close to ihe team. Palmer was
motioni: g with his hand's whe n the first
shot was fired; he then stepped back,
netth. quick, and then eait. First shot
was fired over the horses withers, near
the haruos. The ball would have
struck the building five or six feet from
the. ground if it Lad missed Palmer. It
would have struck the building east cf
the bakery door. The hcrses backed
after the first shot. I think tho second
shot struck the door. I: the second
shot tad struck deceased it would have
hit his legs or hips. Kellogg went to
wards Hanna's store, and appeared to
b watching Palmer. I saw deceased
at the hotel several times before he
died, which was four or five days after
the shooting. -1 took the statement of
the deceased ju-t af.er the shooting.
Cross-Examined. I Dp iinl know
whtither deceasedhad a pistol in his
hand when Kellogg fired Grst. Kel
bogg eppt ared "cowed," and kept close
to liis horses. He looked excited as he
came to Hanna's. lie came across the
- - e--r--
street about tho same time that Palmer
went towards Stadd.i;an:iV. I luoked
for a fuss, because Palmar had just
told nie that he had tow-hided K'lkgg
a few days before.
Re-direct. Palmer told me that he
had whipped Kellogg, and that Kelh'gg
would be in that day and would proba
bly file an information, and he wanted
me to be tasy oa bim. He also told
me that Kellogg must leave the coun
try. C. II. Parmele. I was at Dr. Don
elan's Drug Store, Main street, Piatt;,
mouth, on the l'Jth of August, when
the shooting occurred. I was toirh
and a little west of the r arties. The
first I heard of the affray was some
loud words. I looked around and saw
the smoke fiom a revolver. The team
ran back. Kellogg stood near the
head cf the off horse; the team ran
back eight or ten feet after the first
shot was fired." Palmer started west
on the sidewalk; the wagon was be
tween him and prisoner; I thought he
started to go around the end cf wagon;
he turned east again .and came up near
heads of horses when the second shot
was fired by pri.oner; Palmer then ran
west on sidewalk and aai I he was slut;
he came acro-s to DoneLn's. The la?t
I sz-.v of Kellogg he was half way
across l Hanna's. Only hoard two
sho"t-; think Palmer did not shoot.
Cross Ex. It was about the time the
firt shot was fired that I first saw Pal
nv;r; saw a putI in his hand after he
got on the sidewalk; might have had u
pistol iu his hand when the first :hot
was fired. Horses were between me
and deceased; could see most of hi
body; think he was on the watering
trcuh. Did not hear Ktlloug say
anything; could not understand what
Padmer iaid before ihe sho'. was fired.
PrisotK-r did not go across the sireet
fast; he had started, cs I thought,
across the street, but came ba.k when
Palmer came towards the wagon. Kel
logg sh-.t under the horses heads the
-co. :,d lime. lie stood near ihe hordes
shoulders; ihc-y stood at the pump w hen
the first shot was fired; and about as
far west as the Bakery doora when the
second sho: was fired. There is a bul
let hole through the Bakery door. The
range of the bullet hole in the door is
ueaiiy in rang-a with where pristner
steed when he fired the first shot. He
stood further west when he firtd the
Re-direct. The horses heads were
nt l no watering trough west cf ihe
pump when the first shct was firtd; the
hind end of the wagon was alo it tight
or ton feet from the sidewalk. It was
after the second shot that Puh.R-r s'id

II. F. Price. Was cn Mam stroe',
t'lattsmr.uth, oa the 19. h of Augu .';
heard the Jlrt ahot but did not see it.
Stepped out and saw Kellogg apparent
ly p'jllinir the oil horse back, and roatU
around unJer the Lor.-es heads and fire.
Palmer wtr.l towards Dnehm's. Kel
logg went ov,r to Hanna's, stood up by
the door-cheek and raised up his re
volver and cocked it.
R G. Doom. Was in riattsmouth
on the 19th of August, at Simpson Sc
Michel .rail's store, saw Palmer stand
ing on the watering trough. Kellogg
was there wi.ti hii team; prisoner was
on the same side with Palmer. He
started r.nd went around the wagon;
deceased was talking and had his hands
in motion. Saw the smoke cf pri.-on-er's
pistol, ho was then ou tho south
east side of the wager; deceased was
on the trough, he got down after the
firt shot. Pa'mer went towards Ami
s m's and then went to St .dehnann's.
I saw the smoke from both shots. 1
Went to SiaJtlmann's and saw whore

hands. Saw deceased have a revolver
at seme time, but do not know when it
was. Kellogg appeared perfectly cool
at the time of the shooting. Could not
see pri.oner as distinctly as deceased.
Cross-Ex. I mean by Kellogg bo
ing cool that he did not talk, t-w Pal

just before the affray; he started out
of the store and went down street; as
he started out I heard him say "Kel

see Pal.ner after he was shot; found
him in Stadclmanu's, wounded with
gun-shot wound. I tended on him, in
compiny wi'h Dr. Livingston, until his
death, and helped to make a po6l mor
eiJi examination. The ball which
wounded him went into .the bowels
above and to. the right of the ravel.
Palmer died on the 21th of August
from the effects of ihat woun.i.

Wm. Stadehnann. I was in front of
my store, in Piattsmouth, on the 19th
of August. Heard some loud talk and
heard Palmer saying "God damn" lo
seme one; iaw Kellogsr draw a revolv- j
er and shoot. Palmer was on the wta
tering trough; could see his body down
as low as the waist. After the first
shot was fired deceased ran up toe
street and got his revolver out; he ran
back and Kellogg fired again. Deceas
ed then ran up the street and said he
was shot; did not see anything in his
hand while he was on the trough.
Kellogg went across to Hanna's store
fttr the shooting; taw him cock his
revolver after he went over to Hanna's.
I took deceased irflo my store.
Cross-Ex. Palmer might have had
a small pistol in his hand while at the
pump, but I do not think lie had; his
pistol was a small one. Did not see his
left hand. Palmer and Kellogg were
25 or 30 feet apart when the last shot
was fired. I saw blood on deceased's
.-hirt before he said he- was shot. When
he came into my store he said it was
the fir--', shot that hit him. lie said so
three or four times.
Sufficient evidence was here submit
ted to the Court (with which the j iry
had nothing to do) to show that the
statement of Palmer was made while
he believed himself about to be sum
moned before the Bar of God, and the
following was admitted as evidence in
the case :
Statement of Robert J. Palmer, made
before Jas. O'Neill, a Justice cf the
Peace, in and for Cass county, Ne
braska, in reference to his being
shot by II. L. Kellogg, tu the 19ih
day of August, 1&G7:
1 told him that I was going to have
my wh-atthrcsttd day after to-morrow;
he said, "I will kill you if you fool
with me." I said, "I do not intend to
hurt you; but you cr I will have to
leave this country, as 1 understand you
are carrying a deadly weapon for me."
He then pulled out. his terolver and
Question Did you make any threats
or motions towards him.
Answer No, sir. My revolver was

this statement having been told by my
physicians lhat I cannot live long, and
the same is true, as 1 expect to answer
at the Bar of Gcd.
R. J. Palmer.
I do hereby certify that the abovo
statement of 11 Ion J. Palmer wis
made and signed before me on this 19:h
day of August, A. D. 1SG7.
Jamls O'NriLL, J. P
G. II. Black. I was at ihe store of
Black & Buttery at the time of the
shooting, a little west of south from
where the shooting occurred. I was
sitting inside the store when the affray
commenced, but Lr-.'t up ;u. ! went to th"

on the opposite siie of the team, faeiog
west cf norili, with his Lml in his coat
pocket. lie raised his hand up even
with his body and fired under the hors
es neck; or near there. Deceused put
his pistol over the horses necks and en
deavored to fire at defendant. Some
one fired a second shot; don't know
which it was. Deceased went op n-ar
the tailor's shop, and said "I am shot."
He then started af ross the street to
wards Donehn's, and then defendant
started across. I saw Palmer's pistol
almost immediately after the first shot.
He had to go over the w atering trough
or around the ptunp to get to K-llogg.
The horses were at the west end of the
trough. The barrel of the pistol was
elevated when first shot was fired. I j
could not see Palmer's hands for the j
hordes. He was gOsticu'ating.
Cross-Examined. I was silting
down when I heard the first noise. It
was but a few seconds; after I went to
the door that the first shot was fired.
Platform extends about 2 1-2 feet west
cf the pump. Palmer was either on
platform or pavement when I first saw
him. Trough is on south side of the
pump. The team was angling across
the street. Horses heads were nrar
west end of the trough. Prisoner
stood south of off hor.se, near its head,
when he fired first shot, not over six
feet from deceased, with left hand hold

the shooting than where O'Neill testi

lo go out and have a talk with him;
prisoner refused. Deceased told me
he would way-lay the road for prison

Kellogg is a quiet, peaceable man, so
far as I know.
