by that sobiiquot, because no ono

Alexander tells tho story him

to put in his speech.
"Yon can go to Crawford," lie
stated yesterday afternoon, whilo
ho was still in tho heat of tho
affair, "and tell him that I'm not
afraid of him or any other man
living. I will pormit no man to
insult mo as he did and not resent
it; nor will I allow any man to
withhold from mo illegally what
is my jtibt clue. Crawford may
swear out a wauniit for my ar

provo by his own friends that ho
was in tho wrong and was tho first

early this morning 1 met Craw

streets. Ho was with a couplo of

ed him when ho would bo ready to
pay my commission, as I wanted
to inform othors who wore intor
ostod in tho affair with mo.
"Instead of giving mo a squaro
answer ho was inclined to bo
quarrolsomo and told mo ho
would't pay mo a cent until 1 govo

"I don't deny I owe him that
amount, on auolhor transaction,
but that is a paltry sum comparod
to what is coming to mo from
him. I told him ho was foolish,
and that 1 was ready at any mo
ment to settle accounts.
"It was then ho became insult
ing and called mo a name I'll
stand from no ono. I reached
out and nuulo a pass at him. It
wasn't a punch, but more of a
slap, becauso I wanted to recover
quickly, iu caso his friends might
want to jump mo. Crawford
backed away and went down into
his pocket for his pistol. I saw
his move, and I also drow my
gun. I wasn't going to let him
kill mo, as I havo got my wifo and
littlo babies to look after, bo I
was ready in a moment. Craw

hustled Crawford away.
"I didn't try to kill him, but 1
was ready to mcot him at his own
game. I'm waiting now for him
to causo my arrest, and tho ontiro
business will como out in court.

that may got what money is duo

about thn deal."

abovo mentioned is tho son of a
man who formerly owned a lino

Piolutivo to tho editorial and
other comment appearing in tho
Advertiser this morning, I wish to
Btato that tho roasons assigned by
that sheet for my communication
of yesterday aro entirely in error.
I wish to reiterate tho statement
I mudo to tho offoct that if tho
roof timbers aud supports havo
not been strengthened by tho
addition of plates and bolts
of greater power than tho
plans and specifications called
for I, do most emphatically
consider tho Opora Houso build
ing unBafo. 1 consulted with
sovoral peoplo of good authority
in such matters upon this subject
and I recoived from them tlio as
Biiranco that my viows wore cor
rect. 1 was told that cortnin ad
ditional suppoits woro to bo add
ed. As yot I fail to find that this
has beou done; if not, thoro is not
a proper amount of support to
tho roof in question.
Tho reasous for my withholding
my Bontimonts on tho subject up
to tho last moment wore,that 1 sup
posed'that tho extra work of so
curing tho rafters and tio beams
by propor supports would bo
completed, beforo tho present. As
this had not boon done up to yea
