Millican ... News came here this afternoon of a killing on G.W. Harrington's plantation,
in the Brazos bottom, near White's Switch. M.R. Millican summoned a jury, and with
Justice Peyton went to the scene. Some little while after they left Deputy Sheriff A.H.
Franklin came in leading Charlie Jones, colored, who did the killing, by the neck, and
before he was jailed, he made a statement that he was going hunting, and borrowed
Charlie Lewis' gun, and Lewis told him he should not load his gun so heavy, and out of
this difference grew the shooting. Lewis was said to have been killed instantly. Dallas
