The particulars of the shooting as we learn are as follows: Callahan and a young man named Wm.Miller, were engaged in fishing on the river below Madison, and observing some ducks in their flight, Miller seized a shot gun which was in the boat and fired at the birds. On replacing the gun in the bottom of the boat it was, from some unknown cause, exploded, the load of shot entering Callahan's arm in the rear, just below the shoulder, nearly tearing away the limb. Miller immediately pulled for the shore and ran for assistance, some three miles distance and on returning found Callahan had fainted from the loss of blood. He revived, however, sufficiently to tell of the accident, exhonorating Miller from blame. Coroner Alley held an inquest at Miller's insistence. The jury finding the above facts to be true, discharged Miller. 1-30-1903 || CALLAWAY HELEN MRS.
