The Missouri Horror.
Lynching of an tnparalleled Villain,
We have already given some paiticu-
lars in relation to a matt being arrested
near Clearuiont. Mo , who was driving a
wagon containing the bodies of five mur
dered persons, of whom he w is believed
to have been the mnrdeier The follow
ing account Irom the St. Louis Ueubli
can gives the history of the ase iu de
tail, with tho tragic finale to the awful
On looking into the wagon a fearful
sight met the gaze-.of those w hose sus
picions of the man had led them to iu
vestigate the matter- Within that wagon
lay five- bumau beings covered wilh
blankets. They were piled promidcmisly
together, aud were partly decomposed,
presenting one the most feaiful sights
that ever the eye of mortal beheld.
Tho victims were two men. one woman
and two small children, all with lln ir
tbroats cut from ear to ear. They wrre
sleeping in the wagon at the time of tho
murder, for they were found in their
night clothes. The body of one of the
men was nearly cut in two, and l ore
evidence of having made a hard struggle
Under fear of immediate death the
following statement was cl cited from the
man : lie said his name was Osburn ;
that bis wifo aud w ife's mother lived
near Mount Ayer, in liinggold county,
Iowa. lie eaid his mot' er in law's name
was D liah Ayers, and that bo had a
boy 5 years old lie said the name of
the murdered family is Ormes ; that they
went to Kansas from Minnesota last
spring ; that the name of the other mur
dered man was Dauiel Dickerson ; that
he bad accompanied the murdered family
from Minnesota to Kansas, and was a
cousin to Mrs. Ormes. lie eaid that
Joseph Williams muadereij the party on
last Thursday night near Uolton, Kansas
and hired him. for a consideration of
S700, to conceal the bodies ; that lie
started to . do so, intending to secrete
them in a brush patch; that there was
a keg of whisky in the wagon from
which he Lad freely imbibed, and has
been drunk ever since -, that be dtsired
SEPT&MMR 11, 1S72.
t put tlienj in tlio Missouri river, but
that he got tn White Cloud in the Jay
time and could not do so. He slates
that lie cotilil not find any suitable place
to hide the bodies ; that it appeared to
him that Providence was against him,
and smote his conscience so that lie was
not conscious of what he was doing. He
stated that Williams followed the Ormcs
family from Minnesota for the purpose
of murdcriot; them ; that the cause of his
hate was an old h.ve nffiir betweeu Lira
self and Mrs Oimc-s ; that Williams had
ewotn tielay Ormes, his wife, and their
poRUiify ; that when the partits were
tuiirdcred they had ihe wagon in which
their bodies were found, tws yoke of ox
rn and soma loose CMtile- lie sui-1 he
had traded the cattle j-tt before ho ar
rived at GliMnno:vf, an 1 that lis had also
hid the S700 in a sack.
After having made t!:o abori; confes
sion he was given over intu tho hands of
some of the leading citiz-ns of the Nod
j way valley to take charge of him. They
! then imtoedntely etartod a courier for
Vary ville to report the matter to Sheriff
Wray. They also scrrt back on the
road he had just traversed and found
that he had told th i tnuli regirdii.g the
ealooftliecatlio, but the money could
not be found
sheriff Wray left f ir X. insat at once,
do have SioUoti, Obiirn's professed ac
complice, anesied. The bodies of the
five victims have all been buried, and
O.-t bum is heavily ironed au l strongly
guarded so that escape is impossible. He
will certainly stretch hefnp.
The parties scut out on the back track
to see if any clue could be fmud to the
murder, after inquiry and thorough st arch
learned that the deed had been commit
i ted in Nodaway county, one and a half
miles northeast ot Hurr Cak Grove, and
j some sixteen miles west of Mary ville.
j The finger of Providence seemed to!
j have guided them to the exact spot !
; Ijl,,, :li0y found the false teeth of!
. , ,
the murdered woman,
j St'.ilicieiit evidence ha 1 ticw b?en col
j lected to prove the previous statem. i.t of
the prisoner false, and leave little dottbt
, )!l;lt j,e W.B tll8 murderer They then
i hastened back to where the nrtsotier was
confined, and confronted Lira with the
tlaiutung lacts. When assured that lie
U;1,j not lonn. to live
he . S iiJ, wilh the
j gentlemen, you cannot hang a man but
n, . . it'
e was then asked to reveal the
! particulars ot Ins crime, when be made
in substance, the following confession :
IU gave his nimo as Tn. zev. and
said it was not O-b ir... as etated in Lis
first confession. That bis home was at
Mount Ayer, Iowa, where he had a wife
au l one child. The parties he hid mur
dered xvoie live iu number. A man wilh
his wife and two , children and another
man who was unmarried. He said they
were travelling iu a lmn er wagon, and
that i hey were reluming from Kansas to
their home in Minnesota. He met them
first last Thurday, the lfnli. Having no
money and traveling iu the same direc
. t;n ,)ey kiuilly asked him to join them,
which he did. The wugon being large,
they all, six iu number, slep: iu it. The
inn tied man. his wile and two children
slept on a platl'oim raised ou the front of
the wagon, while the remaining two slept
iu the boitoiu of the Led below.
Last Sunday night they camped within
ball's mile of a house near Ba-r Oik
Grove. At this place tho wretch con
ceived tho plan of murdering them and
making way with their horses and wag
on, their catile (three; or fonrin nu nbe.),
and whatever money they' ui'ght have in
their possession. After having mnrdeied
them he inteiified to secrete tht m in the
brush or Clear creek, near by.
That Sunday night, little dreaming of
the black hearted wretch they had taken
under their shelter, and the awlul fate
that awaited them, they liy down in tlie
wagou for the night, and all save the
murderer were sound asleep
Satisfying himself that all were asleep
he took a loaled pistol which lay iu the
wagon, and placing it at the hed of the
man who was sleeping by his side, fired,
lie instantly killed him.

beggery or starvation urging him, but a
simple desire to seem greater than he

(and there were several engaged on dif

was made. The criminal had filled up

coolness and presence of mind in trying
emergencies, said :
"Here ! you hold on to this cord. Now
do just as I tell you, and I'll take care of
the man, no matter who Lc is er where
he comes from."
Then, taking out her pocket knife and
opening it, she leaned out of the window
and, in a low voice, faid : "Who are you,
there, in that basket ?"
"I say, who are you, thero, in that
basket ? Do you hear ? I have a knifa
