Frank Nichols A Negro Man Attracted From His Home Friday Night and Killed Last Friday night at his home near Crider,
Ffrank Nichols, colored was attracted from his house and assasinated.
Early Monday morning while Bob Asher, also colored was engaged in some work at a barn in the Crider neighborhood, Frank Nochols made his appearance and called for him and
as he started out of the door Frank loaded a leveled a shot gun at him and said that he had come to kill him but before he had time to shoot Bob jumped behing the barn door. As Frank entered the barn Bob grabbed him and succeeded in taking the gun away from hin but in the scuffle had his giners badley bitten.
After the fight Asher came uptown and gave himself up and had a warrant issued for Nichols.
The trial was set for Friday and came up for hearing before Esq. W.C. Rucker. That aftwerward both Nichols and Asher were fined for breach of the peace, the former was assessed twenty-five dollars and the cost and the latter ten dollars and the cost. Before the trial Asher had packed up his household effects and shiped them to Cairo, Ill, where
he intended to go after the trial. That evening he bought tickets for himself and family for Cairo, but did not go, remaining in Princeton. In the mean time Nichols went to his home reaching there after dark. While putting up his horse his wife heard some one walking around the house. Shortly after he returned from the stable some one threw a rock or something against the house. He went out in the yard and in a few seconds the report of a shot gun was heard by his wife, but strange to say, she never gave the alarm or attempted to get him in the house.
Esq. W.C. Rucker was called to Crider Saturday morning and held an inquest.
Saturday morning shortly after daylight Sheriff Wylie Jones noticed Bob Asher passing his house coming into town. A few
minuttes later he received a telephone message from Crider to the effect that Frank Nichols had been killed. He went to the depot and arrested Asher just as he was boarding the train for Cair, and placed him in jail. As Nichols was killed between the time Asher was seen to leave Princeton in the direction of crider and his return, circumstantial evidence is very strong against him. His examining trial is set for today.
