FIRED TO SAVE HIS LIFE,
W. R. Welch Kills Glen Santeo.
Both Well Known Hero Wo re
produce tho following special
telegram to tho Stato Journal
' from Chadron.
May G. W. R. Welch Bhot otid
killed Glen Satitoo ttt 7 o'clock lost
night near Ida postofileo. Wolch
immediately drovo to this city, ar
riving hero about Uo o'clock this
' morning, and gave himself up to
j tiie sheriff. Tho story of tho
shooting as told by Welch is as
Santee, a man twenty years old,
camo to Welch's home about dusk
tuid demanded payment for u
trowel that Ho claimed Welch had
that belonged to him. Mrs. Welch
with whom he was talking, asked
him how much tho trowel was
worth. Just then Welch, who was
in tho room, spoke up und said
that ho knew nothing about tho
trowel, and that Suutee must jxo to
a nian named Baker, who was then
plastering a house into which
Welch was to movo. Sunteo then '-
struck Mrs. Welch, knocking her
down and stepped over her pros
trate body and approached Wolch,
saying: "Give inn that trowell or
I'll kill you," applying a vile epi
thet. Without waiting for a reply
Santeo struck Welch, grabbed him
by tho throat and continued to
pound him on tho face. Welch
defended himself as best ho could,
Uut was no match for Santeo, and
finally fearing that Santeo would
kill him Welch drew a revolver
und shot Santeo dead.
Welch is twenty-nine years of
ige, is married and has two chil
dren. He came to this country six
years ago and began farming. For
the past three years ho has been
teaching school and has been in
the photograph business. R. San
tee, brother of the dead man, was
Welch's partner in this business
until his death some months ago.
Glen Santeo, tho dead man, was a
guest in Wolch's house from tho
5th of lust December until tho
time of his brother's death. Mrs.
Welch says ho was always treated
as a brother and everything was
done for him that could bo. After
tho death of his brother Santeo
claimed that Welch was responsi
ble for his death, although Welch
was sick in bed at the timo Santeo
Tho dead man is described as a
man who was inclined to bo surly,
and it was thought thai ho was not
quite sound in mind. Welch had
been warned that Santoe intended
to kill him. Welch's face Bhows
marks of a hard struggle. His
face is badly cut up. There are
marks on his forehead, cheeks and
chin that looks liko tho work of
somo blunt instrument. His lip
is swollen so that ho can scarcely
talk and ho is pretty well used up.
