A FATAL AFFRAY
A difficulty occurred
on Tuesday afternoon, the 19th, at the dram shop of Robert Moore,
in this city, between Andrew Ramsey and Wm. Cartner, in which the
former stabbed the later with a bowie knife, inflicting a severe
wound on the right side, which occasioned the death of Cartner on
Thursday evening about sundown.
We understand that
it was occasioned by a dispute about the division of profits growing
out of some kind of a gambling co-partnership that had existed between
them. We make no comments about the provocation, leaving that to
be determined by a judicial investigation. Ramsey left when the
act was committed and although the proper course has been pursued
to apprehend him, he has not yet been taken. He is by birth, an
Irishman, and has lived in Boonville nearly two years, during which
time he had generally been employed as a bar-keeper. Cartner has
resided in this county about 30 years and was by birth, an Englishman.
He leaves a widow and five or six children.
It will be seen
by an advertisement in another column, that $100 reward is offered
by the Mayor to secure the arrest of Ramsey.
We have just been
informed since the above was written, that upon a post mortem examination
of Cartner, it was discovered that the knife had cut off a piece
of the breast-bone, severed two ribs, cut through the diaphragm,
and passed through the lower lobe of the right lung. His physicians
state that it was impossible for him to live under the circumstances.
