Liberal, Kan., June 13. Which is
which? is the question agitating at the
present time a large number of people
from Kansas and tho old neutral strip, who
lire now assembled at Buffalo, a point
about eighty mile southwest of Liberal
and designated as the location of the land
office for all that territory formerly known
as No Man's Land or the neutral strip and
now forming Beaver county, Oklahoma.
Last Tuesday news reached this city and
other points in Kansas, as well as Beaver
City and other place in Beaver county
that Buffalo had been selected hy the gov
ernment as the Kite for the land office. A
rush Awards the point was inaugurated at
once and by "Wednesday evening a town,
Buffalo, whieh up to this time was noth
ing but a postoflice, wjls laid out and plat
ted and hundreds of lots taken and occu
pied. Everything went on .serenely and
smoothly until one of the narties received
a telegram yesterday afternoon to tho ef-
lect tnat tne quarter section designated
by the government was not on
section 23, where the postoflice is
built, but on f-ection 25. Several parties
were informed of this as a secret and they,
it seems, told others in the same way and
the result was that about an hour after
the receipt of the dispatch the crowd
rushed to the new point and laid out an
other town. Excitement ran high for an
hour or two and then pcoplecooled off
and returned to the original town
sito and now they are wait
ing for the official announcement
by tho secretary of the interior designating
the quarter section so they may know
where to build. From a telegram received
here today it would seem that the location
is on the postoflice quarter, but this infor
mation is not official.
Buffalo has a beautiful location, sur
rounded by good farming land and is al
most in the center of Beaver county,
a strip of land 160 mile long
add thirty - four miles wide, but
every body is surprised that this point was
selected by the government, for there was
uo town here up to Wednesday morning
and several well established towns had
asked for tho land oflice. There must have
been two or three hundred people on the
ground when your correspondent left
Buffalo yesterday evening. Excitement
is spreading throughout the south west and
people are going to the new place from all
directions, convinced that the land oflice
town and probably county seat in such a
big county is bound to become a large city.

"Washington, June 13. The new land
offices in No Man's Land have at last been
located, and the town of Buffalo selected.
This town is understood to contain two
houses, but the department will arrange

These officials were appointed yesterday,

Under the provisions of the act organ
izing the territory of Oklahoma, the lands
in the strip were declared a part of the
public domain, but they will not be open
to settlement until the completion of
the survey now in progress. A corps of

about three weeks. By that time all ar
rangements for the housing of the new
land office will be completed and the offi

A considerable portion of the land of the

have been going in since 16. These squat

come in first and Idaho will follow im-mediatelj-.
There is no doubt thnt both
the bills will go to the president before the

representation tor the balance ot the Fifty

MINNEAPOLIS FLOUR OUTPUT.
Minneapolis. Minn., June 13. The past
week, says the Northwestern Miller, has
been an exceptionally dull one with the
Minneapolis mill-, but there is promise of
better times for the week to come. Tho
aggregate output was .t!",812 barrels,
averaging 0.J63 barrels daily, against
Ji,770 barrels the week before," 1CO,
000 barrels for the corresponding
time in 1S59. and 123,44 ) barrels

inarkets.together Avith the delay in getting
the water in the canal, causes the general
dullness at the Falls. At noon Wednes
day there were but live mills running,
grinding at the rate of about S.705 barrels
per twenty-four hours. The Anoka mill
increased "the figures to abont 0,S0 bar
rels. It is not likely that the output
will be increased this week, but
with the opening of the cunal next
Monday nearly every mill is count
ing on resuming work. The demand
for flour will hardly warrant such an
active condition of aifairs, but the millers
propose to set wheels in motion, neverthe
less, as well as to show the visitors at the
national convention what Minneapolis is
capable of doing. The export trade is
very quiet, aud quotations remain

SHOT THEM DOM.
TESTIMONY OF A.WITNESS IN THE
Haymaker Keene Hawes on the
Stand Makes a Statement
of the Killing.
Ten Members of the Party KrioTra to
the Witness Great Interest ia
the Case Manifested,
An Elmira Youth Ells His Father in
His Mother's Defense A Colored Man
at Argentine Kills His "Wife A
Brute Lynched at Port Worth,
Tex, Crhninal News,
Pakis, Tex., June 13. The Cross case
was resumed this morning with the exam
ination of Herbert Tonny by counsel for
the defense. This lasted for several hours
to little purpose, as the witness did not
contradict himself in any particular.
Keeno Hawes, one of the haymakers
at Wild Horse lake on the" nighc
of the killing, was next called.
His statement was that Cross and
party came to their camp, and while there
Sam Robinson and thirteen others sur
rounded them, marched them out. in a line
and made them hold up their hands. He
then told Hubbard he had to die and shot
him down. This caused a stampede, and
Eaton, of the Cross party, ran off to the
lake, followed by some of Hobinson'H men.
The witness did not see Cross at the time
he was shot, but saw Tonny when he was
shot. He was holding up his hands. Wil
cox ran and hid in the tent, but was
brought out and shot down. Tho witness
saw, and identified as of the attacking
party, Sam Robinson, C. Cook. O. J. Cook,
J. B. Chamberlain, John Jackson, Cyrus
Freese, George Thomas, Silvester Moher,
John Lawrence and George Smith.
There were fourteen in the party. He
did not know all of them. A. M. Donald,
James Wright, J. W. Calvert. John Hitter,
William O'Connor and isniith Grubbwere
not there. Dr. R. T. Furness. who dressed
Tonny's wounds, testilied that Tonny's
arm must have been elevated at the time
he was shot. The testimony so far has
been very damaging to the defendants.
Great interest is felt in the case, and the
feeling between Hugoton and Woodsdale
factions has been transferred here. A wit
ness forthe defense went to Marshal Dick
erson and asked for protection, stating
that he had been threatened by a witness
for the government. Both sides keep 11
close watch upon the actions of the other
and it seems impossible for one to do any
thing without the other finding it out.
A SON'S PATAL DEED.
He Kills His Father for Making Threats
Against His Mother.
Elmiha, N. Y., June 13. Frank Warren,
living at the corner of Second and Colum
bia streets, was shot and killed by his 16-year-old
son about 2 o'clock this morning.
Warren was a traveling man, working for
the Oswego Wagon company. Ho went
away yesterday morning, telling his wife
he would be gone ten days. He returned,
however, about 10 o'clock bust night and
commenced quarreling with his wife. The
quarrel continued for some time, when his
son, Herbert, arooe from bed and inter
fered. Duriug the trouble Herbert pro
duced a revolver and shot his father in the
right breast. Warren died almost in
stantly. Warren was a fine looking, robust man.
His wife is grief stricken over the
tragedy. Young Warren, who is a
school boj has been arrested. He is very
collected but says nothing.
In an interview Mrs. AX'arren says her
husband came home early in the evening
and awoke her son and conversed with him
pleasantly about the races. He then came
into the bed room where she was sleeping
and commenced an out quarrel with her
about a simple matter. Hie says that in '
the instance referred to she tried to ac- j
knowledge that she was in the wrong, but j
that did not satisfy him and ho arose and 1
partly dressed himself. While partly
dressed he threatened her with violence.
At this time he asked bur, "What are you
getting up for?" She replied, "I am not
going to have a great strong man threaten
ing me as 3011 are." She cot out of bed
and started away. He followed her. Im
mediately the son appeared on the scene
and the fatal shot was lired.

Paris, Tex.. June 13. Deputy Marshals
McCall and Henderson reached here thta
afternoon with William Cook and Joe
Benson, charged with murder in Panola
connty in th Chickasaw nation in August,
143. It seems that the accused and omc
others were at outs, and that the country
was in a terrorizfd condition by a gang of
outlaws. One night Cook and Benson
fired into a negro camp for diversion and
killed a negro woman and her chikl.
Benson married a woman a week after her
husband had been murdered, and when
Benson was arrested yesterday the people
of the neichborhood thought ft was for the
murder of his ife's first huslxuxi.

prominent restaurant keeper of Cherokee,
a station on the Gulf rocd, about thirty
miles west of here, was shot twice and
seriously wounded this afternoon, by a
Mrs. Fessenden, the first ball penetrating

been confined for extradition for forgery,
wns released yesterday by order of the
court. He was taken into custody again,
however, and he will be brought to St.

will be begun acniu. It was the failure
on the part of the prosecution to produce
the original note forged that caused the
first proceedings to fall through.

number of cowboys in Soccorro county,
resulting in the dea'th of John and Garrett
Davis on one side and Fred Groslot on the
other. This is the second of the Groslot
bovs who has come to a violent death in

ticulars can not be given. There are two
factions in that county.

THE STOCK YARD SALE
Sensational Allegations of a Scheme to
Depreciate the Stock.
CinrGO, 111 , June 13. The anticipated
suit to prevent the cousumntion of the
proposed $211,000,000 sale of the Union
Stock Yards and Transit company of
Chicago to an English syndicate was com
menced before Judge Tuley this afternoon.
Decidedly sensational ch'nrges are made
in the bill and the court is
asked to remove the present of
licers of the big corporation, appoint
a receiver and issue an injunction restrain
ing the proposed issue of lainds and the
sale of plant and stock.
Tho bill charges that it is with no legi
timate and lawful motive that the de
fendants are seeuing to carry out
the scheme of selling tho property,
but that on tho contrary they are
inspired with the intention of selling
it in for a little over half
its actual value: that they then propose to
depreciate the value of tho stock and run
the property down until it reaches tho
minimum. Then, when the small stock
holders are frozen out, it U said the ma
nipulators will buy the plant and goodwill
in it for a mere song.
Mr. Bake declared that the company's
stock is actuallv and intrin8ically worth
$200 a share, whereas the proposed purchase
price is $150, of which only the par value
100 is cash.
Judge Iuley sent the bill to the
master in chancery and tonight a copy
was served up such of the defendants as
was possible with notice to attend a hear
ing tomorrow morning.

question of dissolving the passenger de

jority of the members have signed the
agreement ot the new estern l'assenger

and the Fort Scott & Memphis roads were
not ready to join the association, though
intimating tnat they might do so In
tho not remote future and were op
posed to an immediate dissolution
of the passenger department of the Trans
Missoun association. The Missouri Pacitic
also objected to hasty action in that direc
tion and voted against the proposition to
amalgamate. Thereupon the Burlington

Chicago & Northwestern all gave thirty
days notice of their intention or withdraw
nig from the Trans Missouri Passenger as
sociation. Tlds will settle the question, as
the organization m ill not be able to exit
