August 7, 1901
Tuesday morning Sheriff Murphy received a telephone message from Junction City stating that a man named Tom Tullis had shot and dangerously wounded James Cameron. Tullis claims to have acted in self-defense. He expressed a willingness to surrender to the sheriff, and Mr. Murphy left for Junction Tuesday morning to take charge of him. Cameron was engaged in the saloon business at Junction.
At last accounts he was not expected to live more than a few hours.
