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.
