G B HAYS Sheriff Bradley
County This October 1,1879
It is pretty well known over the county,
and especially in court
circles, that there has been for some time
an ill feeling between
JAMES NIPPER and his boys on one side and
REV. J B HUNT and
son on the other. It seems that this feeling
started from a
law suit between JAMES NIPPER and the Baptist Church in
neighborhood. REV J B HUNT is or was pastor
at the said church
and consequently took part in the lawsuit
in behalf of his
church. They have been before Justices
and Courts with their
case till a great many of the neighbors
have become involved
either one way or the other, till there
is a general bad state
of affairs in the settlement. But the latest
from it took place
on saturday last. We get the report about
as follows: REV. MR.
HUNT and his son GEORGE were on their way
home from here and
either overtook or were overtaken by HENRY
NIPPER, JAS. NIPPER
Jr. and WM. OFFICER who were in a wagon.
At any rate a quarrel
was started between them and after HUNT
and his son passed the
wagon a rock was thrown by OFFICER, striking
saddle. The two HUNT's then distmounted
and the battle commemced,
and is said to have lasted five or ten
minutes. All parties
were badly bruised up we understand, and
old man HUNT especially
- who was severly injured from blows recieved
on the head. There
is no telling when this matter will end,
as the feeling between
the parties grow worse with age. But it
is hoped for the sake
of law and order that there will be no
more such fooliness.

The Recent Battles
A friend of Mr. JAMES NIPPER called Monday
and asked us to make
a correction in our report of the battle
between HUNT's and
NIPPER's boys. As he gives it, it is about
as follows: The HUNT's
throwed the first rock, and that none of
the NIPPER's were hurt
in the fight. Further that the first ill
feeling commenced about
a fence that NIPPER claimed HUNT had put
on his (NIPPERs)land,
and that the lawsuit with the Baptist church
months afterwards. The two HUNT's were
arrested and gave bond
for their appearance before a Justice on
Nov. 4, In
addition to the above we have heard it
said that HUNT's will
also have NIPPER's and OFFICER arrested.

He fired two shots at DAVE RINKLE - one
taking effect in the

out; the second
shot passed through the shoulder - - neither
one of which are
considered dangerous. The third shot was
fired at LUNA RINKLE,
