Terrell, Texas, August 15. -- Fred Grinnan and Felix Roberts, local insurance agents, had a quarrel at Cloud's saloon last night, in which Fred Grinnan shot Felix Roberts five times, from which Roberts died almost immediately. Both men were about 24 years old, their families being wealthy and influential. The fight was first with fists, but both began to draw revolvers, in which Grinnan was the quickest and put in his five shots before Roberts could use his. Grinnan surrendered to Marshal Joe H. Kellar and has been under guard during the day. Roberts was carried to the Elks' hall and embalmed and afterwards taken to the home of his mother, Mrs. Anna W. Roberts. The funeral will take place tomorrow morning. Mr. Roberts was a brother of ex-Mayor M.C. Roberts and nephew of Matthew and Leonidas Cartwright. Mr. Grinnan was a son of Major J.S. Grinnan, all of this city and men of wealth and influence. Houston Daily Post, August 16, 1900
