[May 23, 1890] -

MURDER.--There was a killing a few days ago just over in Pulaski from Bee Lick, which looks like a very serious murder. Wyatt Warren shot and killed Jim Delaney under the following circumstances: The men married sisters, but there was little love between them.  It seems, however, that they had bought a broad axe in partnership and that Warren had taken the first show at it. Delaney went for it several times, but Warren was using it each time. The last call he made for it Warren was not at home, but Delaney told his wife if she would pay him 50 cents he would say no more about the axe. Mrs. Warren gave him the money, but Warren was much displeased when he heard of it. Delaney passed shortly afterwards, and he ran out and demanded the return of the 50 cents. Delany rode on without making any reply and when he got off a little ways pulled his pistol out and shook it over his head. Warren ran and got his gun and without warning fired a load of buckshot at Delaney, one of which struck him in the back of his head and passed clear through it, killing him instantly. Warren is a distiller and Delaney, who was known as Drunken Jim, was a stock trader for Ike Herrin. A grudge of long standing existed between the brothers-in-law and it was predicted several years ago that one would finally kill the other, but their differences were patched up to some extent and they had recently been apparently on fair terms. Warren was arrested, but we have not heard the results of the trial. [1]
