HUNTER. 10 SHOT If
“Woman Will Be Woman’s Friend When
She Ceases to Make Man Her Aim in Life”
HU irs ILL«
Police officers and members of the
ihcriff's Lorce early this morning ar
•este<’ Will Hunter who last night
iho' nis wife and Charles Peterson at
drs. Hunter’s home.
Sheriff William McCullough and Po-
lice Officer aBrney Cleaver came upon
Hunter at old stock yards northeast
»f the fair grounds, and placing him
In their buggy brought him hack to
town, to the county jail.
The sheriff says that when lie and
the policeman drove up to the stock
yards Hunter saw them and came out
from under a platform where he had
been sleeping. He gave himself up
readily and remarked he was glad it
Stepping on the porch of his wife's
home at 414 South Frankfort Avenue
at 8:30 o'clock last night, Hunter,
with no other remark than, “How' are
you all?" drew a gun and shot Chas.
Peterson in the back below the right
r.houlder. He then shot his wife in
the right arm above the elbow and
through the muscles of her left hand.
As his wife turned to flee Hunter
tried to shoot her again, in the back,
hut his gun missed fire.
Elmer Wassinger and Mrs. Ollie
Smith, who were on the porch, grap-
pled with Hunter before he could fire
She says that she did not know
Hunter was out of jail until yester-
day afternoon, when she received a
note from him in which he addressed
her as “My dear wife,” and asked her
to meet him. She thought that his
jail sentence, which he had been serv-
ing, wras eighteen months, and was
surprised to know that he had been
released at noon yesterday. She did
not meet him.
"When he stepped on the porch,”
she says, "he said, ‘how are you all.’
Mr. Peterson was sitting down, but as
Mr. Hunter asked the question, he
arose to go into the house. As he
was opening the screen door Hunter
fired on him and Peterson fell.
"Hunter,” she continued, “tt'n fir-
ed at me and the bullet struck me. I
turned to run and heard the gyi click.
My daughter and Elmer Messinger
then caught him and took the gun

Mrs. Hunter says she has not lived
with her husband for nearly two years
That he was always drinking and con-
stantly In trouble with the police for
bootlegging. She says he was drink-
ing yesterday evening.
She says that after the shooting a
man named Ben Robinson came to
her house to see her and said Hunt-
er was wearing his coat, and that

their grasp Hunter dashed down the
steps and running fast disappeared in
a southeasterly direction.
Both Mrs. Hunter and Peterson will
probably recover. Jealousy against
Peterson, who was a boarder at Mrs.
Hunter's, was the cause of the shoot-

The police were summoned after
the shooting and an ambulance called, ;
She does not know where her hus-
band got the gun, hut believes Rob-
inson loaned it, as well as the coat.
The gun is an old one, 38 calibre.
Let Out of Jail Yesterday
Seen at the jail this morning, Hunt-
er said he did not have much to say
at this time. However, he did say, "I
am not sorry for what I did. I feel
that I was justified In doing it.”

Mrs. Hunter's wounds were dressod
at her home by I>r. Zinn.
Lying in her bed this morning, Mrs.
Ola Hunter talked of the affair. She
stated that she and her daughter, Mrs
Ollie Smith, and several of the men
hoarding at her house, were sitting on
the porch of her home, talking about
the threatening storm, when her hus-
band stepped on the porch.
Hr. Ida C. Nahm, prominent woman
physician of New York, who declares • its
that “woman will be W’oman’s friend
when she ceases to make man her
aim in life."
“Women don’t like each other as
much as they might, as I wish they
would,” she deplores. “If we search
for the basic reason for many wo-
men’s dislike for women, I believe it
would be found in man. If there is Sffil
not an actual man in a woman’s tl&A
life, there is a possible one, present jj$ |
or future. The women favored in face *#'■ ||y
or figure or both, or who are endowed
with charm, are regarded as possible
rivals. And for the unhappiness that
rivalry may cause, such woimn are
disliked by the women whose thought
is centered on man. Now put man in
his place, not as a god, or even a man
god, but just a plain human, and wo-
men will not dislike other women.”
