Abram Schilley

Louis Wagner, 45, of this city, is alleged to have shot and almost instantly killed Abram Schilley, an aged veteran of the Civil War. The shooting occurred in a Cambria City hotel. Wagner, it is stated, was temporarily insane as a result of excessive drinking. There was no trouble between the men. Wagner, it is alleged, simply pulling his revolver, saying, I am going to shoot you, and at once making good his threat. Schilley was about 76 years old. Wagner is in the city jail.
