Hill, was about twenty-five years of age, and also left a wife and child. Jesse Hill, the first victim, was a single man, about twenty-two years old, and a cousin to William and Russell Hill. It is generally known that a fend has existed for some time between the Hills and certain other persons in the neighborhood, and that there had been more than one hostile meeting recently between the parties. It is presumed that the terrible tragedy of Monday night is the sequel to former troubles, and individuals connected with the recent affrays in the vicinity are supposed to have been active participants in the horrid tragedy detailed above. Last evening Jefferson Rogers and Hercules Walker, the latter a city policeman, were taken into custody, on the charge of complicity in the murders. Others are implicated in the affair, and will no doubt be arrested.
