Goshorn of this city has been em(>loyed to defend E. Vancil, who is charged with murdering his wife by administering poison. Mr. CHishom was our. of the city today and enild not be seen but Mr. Campbell, his partner, stated that it Mr. Goshorn had b ;cn emplojfd henknew nothing of it. From a 'l indications Mr. Vancil in- , tends to make a fight. Ho has already i hired attorneys who will take up the i case at once. The I .Awrencc World ' said that an attorney of lola may be hire<l to assist Mr. Riling of that city I in the case. i The I.awr?nce •VS 'orld says. ! It has been said that Vancil is as- ; ex-convict, and that he learned his trade of shoe-maker while serving a term in the penitentiary. This story, ' his acquaintances say. has been in cir-.. dilation here among those who knew him for a year or more past, and it appears to be pretty generally believed, Tho World this morning called up .lohn F. Goshorn of lola, a prominent attorney who has lived at Ida for a great many years, and has been familiar with Vanclt's record there ever since Vancil was a little boy. He ienied the report, and declared that as long as Vancil was at lola he bore ii good reputation. Mr. Goshorn identified the Vancil he had in mind with the Vancil who is in prison here charged with murdering his wife, by saying that some years ago the young man had hi .s foot shot off while hunting. Vancil met with such a mishap, and now wears a cork foot. Vancil is a man perhaps 30 years of ace and he was raised at lola. Ho came directly from lola to Lawrence and all o.f his career thai is not familiar to Mr. Goshorn is familiar to his acquaintances here. So; it Is pretty conclusively settled that he has never been in the penitentiary, and that this charge of murder is the first seriJus charge ev?r brought against him by the officers of the law.
