C'oggins wns an Intimate friend o' Mr. Henry
and ho determined to go to Cucro aad luvestl-
gatu tbo matter fur himself. Accordingly
Mr. Henry took the II o'clock train on Sunday
aud arrived at his dtitlnutlon on tho following

Jail to ncd If hu could Identify tho clothing
worn by tho deceased aud also the man who
was in custody on thu charge of murder. Mr.

Mr. Cogglns. Mr. Henry then had an Inter-
view with the pMsouer Svnulorltch ut bis ra-
iniest anil by the consent of the ofliclals. One

He said "Well they nccusc me ol killing John
Coggins." Ileury then bald "From what 1
hear they haro pretty stiong evldcuco jgalust
you." "Is that so" said he; "lam glad they
think so." As Mr. Houry was leaving tho Jill
he was pressed to cull tiirnln as tho prisoner
wlshad to have a private conversation with
him. Mr. Iloury got periulssloti of tho Shcrirf
next morning to go and see th prisoner wheu

The lacts of tho murder us Mr. Henry ob-
tained trom the authorities were these :
Coggins and bis partner arrived In

houso their huadiiuarlers. Thoy rented tho
Casino ball to give an exhibition of their
maglo lantern und on tbo day of tho murder
they both drove out of town together stating
that they were trolng down the road to Vic-
toria. Thoy met u couple of negroes about a
mllo from Cuero. nnd stopped them and asked
where thera was a good Dlace to till tit und tlsb.
Tho negroes told them whero to go und they
urovo uown near ine imuic oi mu river un-
hitched tbo team and went Into camp. The
negroes had occasion to go down to the river
the same ovenlng to catch a bor.e und noticed
that Coggins in id his partner were then
cuuipod. They called tho negroes over and
held a conversation. That was thu last tlmo
Unit John Coggins was seen alive. Tho next
morning ubout sunrise Svuutovltoh was seen
to drivuoutof the river bottom nlono and
take tbo roud to Cuero. On reaching thero h
