March 29, 1888
A few days ago Z. Elliot handed us a copy of the Martin County, Ind., Tribune, containing a lengthy account of a murder committed in that county March 18, 1864, which has just come to light by the confession of one of the guilty parties.
The confession implicates a number of prominent business men and a minister of the gospel. At the time of the crime Mr. Elliot was in the army and one of his comrades was the brother of the murdered man. All of the parties are old acquaintances of Mr. Elliot, who will watch the proceedings with a great deal of interest.
