A lie news spread with great rapid it but most people received it with doubts until investigation established the fact beyond question. Then the excitement became More and More intense and crowds of people rus lied to that Quarter of the City where the shooting took place anxious to View the body of the dead outlaw and to learn the particulars. In a Smail Frame shanty in the Southeast part of the City on the Hill not tar from the Wared s hotel Jesie James has lived with Iii wife since some time in a vember last. Kobert and Charles Ford two of his gang have made their Headquarters at his House and Cli Aracsi it in a of has Hvid Vith Bim in that shanty Ever since nov Rinbei. Hob Ert arrived about ten Days ago and the three have been making preparations for a raid in expedition on which they were to stat to night. James and the two Fords being in the front room together about this morning the former took Oft his Belt and Laid his instals on the bed preparing to Wash himself when Robert Ford sprang up behind him and sent a Bullet through his brain. The Ball entered the Back of his head at the base of the right brain coming out Over the Eye. The Ford Brothers at Quot once made known what they had done and gave themselves up. They Are now under guard at the court House. Tiie body of Jesse James was conveyed to an undertake where Itwara prepared for burial and where a photograph was taken.

A Herald reporter reviewed the body at the under Iii d when it was being photo graphed. To was a Fine looking Man. Apparently forty years old with Broad foe Nead and his physiognomy was that of an intelligent As Weli As a Resolute and daring Man. The House where tames lived and in which he was killed has the appearance of an armory. A number of guns and pistols including a repeating Rille a Needle gun Navy revolvers with a Good store of ammunition were found there. Jesse James was in the Inabit of wearing two belts with a Brace of very Fine revolve ers and Twenty five extra cartridges. In a mall stable near by were discovered Sev a dial Fine horse the property of tames. Tile Ford brothels claim that they Are detectives and that they have been on James track for a Long time.

In the Light of All moral reasoning the shooting was wholly unjustifiable but the Lav is vindicated and the $51 ,000 Reward Oil or Edify the state for the body of the brigand dead or alive will doubtless go to the Man Wix had courage to draw a Rev it Lver on the noted o a Law when his Back was turned As in this cas3. There is Little doubt that the killing \va3>the of a premeditated plan Fornai Edify Robert and Charles Ford sectoral months ago.

Understanding to Kiis a Jesse Ever since last fall. A Short time ago. Ine fore Ilobert had joined James the latter a Posod to Rob the Bank at Platte City. He said the Burgese trial would and his plan m As if they could get another companion to take View of the situation off the Platte City Bank and while the argue Aetna were being heard in the murder Case which Woula naturally engager the Atten Tion of the Citi zin.<5, boldly execute one of his favorite raids. Charles Ford approved of the plan and suggested his brother Robert As a companion worthy of sharing the Enterprise with them. Jesse had met the boy at the latter s House near Richmond three years ago and consented to see Bim. The two men accordingly went to who re Robert was and arranged to have him accompany them to Platte City. As stated All three came to St. Joseph a week ago sunday and remained at the House All week. Jesse thought it Best that Robert should not exhibit himself on the premises lest the Prtt ence of three Able bodied men who were doing nothing should excite suspicion. They had fixed upon tonight to go to Platte City Ever since the boys had been with Jesse they had watched for an Opportunity to shoot him but he was always so heavily armed it was to draw a weapon without his seeing it. They declare they had no idea of taking him alive considering the undertaking suicidal. The Opportunity they had Long wished for came this morning. Breakfast was Charley Ford and Jesse James had been in the stable currying the horses preparatory to their night ride. On returning to the loom where Robert Forral was. Jesse said Quot its an awfully hot Day a, his coat and Vest and tossed them on the bed. Then he said Quot i guess i la take off my Pis Tols for fear somebody will see then if i walk in the he unbuckled his Belt in which lie carried two forty five calibre revolvers a Smith in Weison and the other a Colt and Laid them on the bed with his coat and Vest. He then picked up i dusting Brusly with the intention of dusting some pictures which Hung on the Wall. To do shia he got on a hair. His Back was now turned to the Brothers who silently stepped Between Jesse and Liis revolvers and at a motion from Charley both Drew their guns. Robert was the quickest of the ,-0. In one Iii Tion he had thi3 Long weapon to a level with his Eye with the nozzle no More than four feet from the Hack of the outlaw s head. Even in that motion As Quick As thought theire was something Itiat did not escape the acute ears of the hunted Man. He made a motion As if to turn his head to Ascot Lalii the co Tirse of that auspicious sound but too late. A nervous pressure on the trigger a Quick hash a Sharp Repolt and a Well directed Ball crashed through the outlaw s Skull. There was no outcry just a swaying of the body and it fell heavily Lack upon the carpeted door.
