MURDER AT CULBERSON
Our neighboring town of Culbertson was thrown into an intense state of excitement Tuesday evening, by the fatal shooting of Harry B. Hull, by John G. Hunter.
The trouble appears to have grown out of the fact that G. V. Hunter's mule trespassed on Hulls farm, and had been taken up and held for damages caused. The old man made an attack on Hull in a billiard hall and was struck by Hull with a que (sic). That the young man then appeared on the scene and shot Hull twice, with instantly fatal results.
A neck-tie party was strongly threatened, but seems to have fallen through for lack of a leader. Young Hunter was taken to Lincoln Wednesday night, for safekeeping.
