(Bonne Terre Register, Fri. May 3,
BILL DOOLEY DYING.
Bill Dooley, who figured in the Dooley-Harris feud of this county and shot and killed one
of the Harris boys on a passenger coach at Rock Springs, is dying of consumption at State
Hospital No. 4. After his capture he was adjudged insane and committed to No. 4.
We saw him last Sunday lying on a cot in the Hospital Infirmary, wasted and worn
away, too weak to take much notice of anything and certainly near the end. He may
live a week, possibly linger on for several weeks, and if any of his family care to see
him alive it would be well for them not to delay.
