A man by the name of Thomas Polmanteer was killed by John Crews, at the place of the latter, abou* four miles south of the BUck Buttes, on Stony creek, on Bandar last. We learn from Deputy Sheriff Ping that some time last winter deceased heard that Crews had been talking about his wife, and gave him a thrashing. Last Sunday a man by the name of Hughe- went in Polmanteer and said that Crews wanted to se!l his place or buy Polmanteer's, and wanted to see him. On this deceased weDt over to see Crews. On arriving within about fifteen paces of the house Crews fired at him, striking him in fie thigh. Polmanteer started to run, when the other shot him in the back with a charge of bucksbot, and afterwards took an ax and knocked his brains out. Crews then fled fur the mountains. Hughes was arrested as an accomplice, but discharged. Nothing has been seen or heard of the murderer since.
