Kaxsas Crrr, May 15. At an early hom
this morning crowds began to gather around
the banks. The news from "ew York yes
terday hail created tont excitement
especially among small depositors, many oi
whom had all their savings in bank and
naturally felt a little nervous. As the houi
for tlie opening of the banks approached,
the crowds about the doors grew denser,
and speculation were rife as to what would
be done. While some wore serious coun
tenances, the greater portion of the people
were good natured. At nine o'clock the an
nouncement was made that an agreement
had been entered Into by all the bankers ot
the city to pay twenty per cenL on deposits
ami give. If desired, a certified cheek for the
balance, payable only through the Clearing
House. Tlie purpose of this measure was
obviously to avoid the dangers of a panic
stricken run. The large depositors were uni
formly confident and kept away from the
banks. All of the large mercantile bouses
made their deposits this morning as if
nothing unusual bad occurred. Thi had a
decided tendency to check alarm on the part
of those who were disposed to be frightened
at the outlook and the crowds soon began

A terrible tragedy ocearred at tbe resi
dence of Monroe Gray, ten miles southeast
ot this place, yesterday morning, which
has planged two families Into deep
inotrrnlag. An erring wife and an un
principled hasband have been harried to
Monroe Gray, with his wife aad two
children, a girl ot ten aad a boy ot twelva
lived oa a farm which he rented froa
Wi, Bitch, a wealty farmer who
lived on the eastern outskirts of the
village. Until a few months ago Grs)
lived la this town. His eyas
had bees diseased aad he had used a?
nearly all of his money Ja haviag them
treated In East St. Louis. He ftaally de
cided to gc to farming agaia aad as he
had little or bo money he applied to Ditch,
who advanced him funds and let bin. go
en the farm where the tragedy occurred.
Thcrsday Gray drove to Ditci'a house
and asked bim to go with hla te- hie
(Grsrf7 farm to ace about repadrtaa
dike a few rallea to tbe east. Ditch ac
companied Gray back to his home aad re
mained there all night. It wa arranged
that yes terday morning they should go over
to the house oi a contractor named Axley,
a few miles east ot Gray's, to engage kits
to do so! work.
About eight o'clock Gray went oat to
his barn to hitch up fcia team aad left
Ditch sitting with Mrs. Gray la the sitting-room
of the small three-room aoaae.
Gray had been rn the barn but a short
time, when, in reaching up to take dow
some harness, some Umotby seed fell la
one ot his eyes, lie placed hi hand ovef
tne optic and started oaclc to tne aouso
to have his wife get tho need out. As he
opened the sitting-room door he saw that
the room was empty, and Instantly bis
suspicions were aroused. He bad heard
that Ditch had been In questionable rela
tions with the wires of other men, but
cercr suspected that his home circle
wocld be invaded.
He stealthily entered the room, crossed
it to the east side, pushed open the doer
of his wife's bedroom and there witnessed
a sight that aroused all his manhood to
the highest pitch. He closed the door ot
the bed-room and crossed to the wctsldu
of lb- sitting-room to a stand, In the
drawer of which were two large navy re
volvers. As he grasped the weapons the
door of tbe bed-room opened, and Ditch
appeared. The latter Immediately grasped
a chair with which to defend himscif, and
as he did so Mrs. Gray also came out asd
begged her husband not to shoot.
Gray, however, took deliberate aba
with one erf the weapons and fired two
shots, both of which took effect In tho
body of Ditch. As tbe Utter fell to the
floor Mrs. Gray again appealed to her
hesand lo spare her life, but he refused
to listen to her. He fired and the ball
from the large -H-caUbre weapon passed
through her abdomen and she fell by the
side of her paramour. The first ballet
fired at Ditch entered his right side Just
below tbe nipple, and the second .paised
Gray left hla wife and Ditch lying oa
the floor dying, and started with, hla two
children to the house of a neighbor, to
whom he told the details of the tragedy.
When he returned an hour later, bota vic
tims were lying dead in almost the same
position la which Gray had left them.
Then the Bews of the affair spread over
the country like wildfire and before noon
the little cottage was filled with farmers,
and In the yard outside stood little knots
of people discussing In subdued tones
tite details of the aorribie drama that had "Sf
beea enacted. J v,
Mrs. Ditch, the wife ot the murdered x
man, was Informed by a messenger ot tho
death of her husband, and not being ad
vised of the particulars visited the houso
ol Gray, where a most touching scene
was enacted. No one had told her of tho
cacse ot tbe shooting; she had simply
been told that Gray cad shot her hus
band; bnt when she reached tbe bouse
the nature of the tragedy dawned upo'a
her sl c burst Into a violent lit of
weeping. She embraced life body of her
husband and seemed to have forgotten
everything bat that be had been ruthlrsa
ly taken from her, and to have forgiven
film lor nis lncdeiiry to ner. Jfrienus
took her away and soon after she accom
panied the dead body o( her husband back
to their now desolate home tn the vil
lage. The Coroner was not la the County and
his Deputy held an Inquest, which was
rather an impromptu aftxlrand developed
nothing beyond what has been given
above. He decided to require Gray
to give bond In $1,000 for his appear
ance before the Grand Jury, but this
did nut seem to be necessary as
Gray showed no inclination to
make hU escape. He seems to
feci fully tbe nature ot his act
aud displays no grief over It. He acts aa
If he was convinced that he had dealt
justly with those who had so deeply
wronged him. He Is willing to take ail
the legitimate consequences, and will
stay here until wanted.
bheriff Wilson went down to Gray's
farm as soon as he was notified, but did
not offer to make an arrest, as he felt
confident that Gray would not attempt to
leave the country.
