A Murdererís Death
ST. LOUIS, Mo., Nov. 25.--A special telegram from Dallas, Texas, to the Post-Dispatch Hays:
John B. Shaw was hanged at Cleburne at noon today for killing Thomas Crane a year ago. Shaw, who claimed to be an infidel, had refused all along to have talks with or have visits from the ministers, but at the last moment he relented and permitted a preacher to be with him on the scaffold.
