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).
