James Shay, keeper of a dance house at Newton, was shot at that place last Sunday evening. He was killed on a street corner, and was fired at five times, all of the shots taking effect, killing him instantly. It is not known who committed the deed. Shay was a resident of Abiline in the days of the Texas cattle trade. (The Kansas Chief, Troy, Kansas. Thursday, February 27, 1873. Page 2).
