A STRANOE DOUBLE SUICICE.
MUSCATINE, Iowa, Sept. 7Between noon
and 1 o'clock to-day the dead bodies of Freder
ick Scak, a German aged 26, and Carrie Myers,
aged 22, were found near the corner of Odik
and Eighth streets, They both reside in Kan
sas, Seak in Kansas City and the girl near Cher
okee. They came here last night. This morn
ing they made some purchases of white slippers
and crape, and when found the slippers were
on their feet and the crape on their arms. I
yi as undoubtedly premeditated suicide,although
it is not known that anybody saw the act. A
small Smith & Wesson revolver with two empty
chambers and a Bmall hole in the foreheads of
the victims told the tale. The woman's head
rested on Seak's shoulders, and there were no
signs of a struggle or pain. Seak has some
lriends here but the woman is a stranger. Seak
left a letter to a Kansas City friend which may
throw some light on tho matter.
At the inquest this evening it was learned
that Seak has become entangled in a matrimo
nsal alliance with a woman whom he declared
unfaithful, and from whom he attempted to
procure a divorce in order to marry Miss
Meyeis. Failing in that he came here, where he
has lived most of his life, bringing the girl,
and they have been deliberately planning all
day means of making themselves presentable
in appearance for the funeral rites. The fatal
shots were fared in thehoiiBe of a friend, where
they had been staying. Letters writter to
friends say they love too deeply to live apart
preferred death to that fate. The murderer
and buicide always bore a good character here.

good horses with them, shot the poorest ones,
and left. They got about $16,000, mostly in

Return Mr Haven and Accompanying
In anticipation of the return of the President
to the city yesterday afternoon there was an
unusual number of persons on the street prom
enading between tho depot at Jackson street
and the Metropolitan hotel. A very large num
ber of these were strangers, probably recently
come up to the fair, and who had not had an
opportunity of seeing the President. Many of
these had to return to their homes
disappointed, for the Presidential paity
did not reach the city till 10 o'clock
and although th^re were still a considerable
number of people on the streets when the car
riages conveying them dashed up Third street,
few knew that the carriages eontained the dis
tinguished party, or if they did they were sin
gularly indifferent to the fact, for not a cheer
was heard nor any unusual commotion seen
throughout the whole route. Th carriage in
which Mr. and Mrs. Hayes and Mr. and Mrs.
Ramsey were seated proceeded direct to the lat
ter's house, while most of the rest drove to the
Me' ropolitan Hotel. T. C. Jones,
came the guest of A, Wilder, Esq W. Smith,
of Chicago, with his wife and daughter, were
taken in charge by Fied Driscoll. Gen. Dev

There was no demonstration at the hotel nor at

proceed to their several quarters in quietness,
to rest after the fatigues of an arduous and
A GLO BE reporter calling at the house of
Senator Ramsey late in the evening, was tola
that the ladies had been talking of attending
the House of Hope church in the mnruing.
The Senator had no doubt that both Mr. and
Mrs. Hayes would attend that chnrch at least
in the morning, and he thought probable in the
evening also. Bu it was just as possible that
in the evening the President and his lady would
attend either the First Methodist or the Jack

The party will leave via Chicago & Milwau

at Gen. Due's residence, Hastings.
The Last Trump of the Season.
A most brilliant finale of the park concerts
took place last evening. The park was beau
tifully lighted up with lanterns and the en
closure was almost uncomfojtably filled with
promenaders, while the streets suiroanding
were crowded with vehicles. The St. Louis and
Great Western bands played together with won
derful precision and exactness and it would be
impossible to think from their playing
that they were two organizations playing to
gether for the first time.
The large and delighted audience applauded
enthusiastically every number of the following,

A BLOODY TRAGEDY.
A Horse-Thief Kills a United Stales Mar
tfhal at Chctopa,Kansas.
A correspondent of he Atchison Champion
give? the particulars of a raarder which oc
curred at Chetopa, Kansas, on the 25th inst.,
a United States marshal beiog the victim
Early that morning a citizen called at the
residence of Eobert Clift, city marshal
and deputy United States marskal, and in
formed him that a mai passing in sight, on
foot, must be asrested as a horse-thief.
Chfi at once mounted his horse and followed
the man, ertaking him on the prairie in
full view of the town, and ordered- him to
surrender under arrest. The man proved to
be one Richmond, who had been about the
towa some time before, and had been fur
nishad money by benevolent citizens to re
move with his family to Lawrence cennty,
o. readily replied that he would sur
render? and torned as if to walk on before
the marshal,, and taking two or three steps
suddenly- turned, facing- tbe officer, and
raised a pistol to a dead aim mwi fired before
the surprised officer could* even get his band
p. The barf struck him* squatrely in the
throat, ant through ths
lodged in th neck-bone, fracturing the
spinal column. I a moment- he reeled aacf
fell from bi hcase, the blood gushing out at
his mouth. Richmond start*d O a brisk
run to a large cornfield near by and toward
he timber in. the Neosho bottom. Several
persons were in eight, but failed to compre
hend the situation in time to stop Hie flight
of the thief. The- marshal was* imzaediately
looked after and earn ed to his hbme not far
away. Drs. Lisle-r Anderson and Kackley
were soon ory the ground, and on examina
tion, pronounced the case hopeless. Al
that could be, wasdoaaeto alleviate his-suffer
ing s. remained conscious several hours,
and gave directions a& to the disposition of
his business affairs^ After a time he became
delirious, and his sufferings were terrible.
lingered until past midnight, when death
released him from his terrible suifSring.
o'clock the newa had spread all ovea the
town, and men were seen coming from
every quarter, arm ed with such weapons as
were at handshot-guns, rifles, revolvers
till forty or fifty determined men had
assembled. The pursuit was at once
commenced, but in the excitement
that prevailed,- there was little order
or system, each squad taking
the course most jeadily suggested. neon
100 arm ed men were eagerly searching
every nook and corner in the neighborhoo d.
The search was continued in this irregular
manner till evening, I was ascertained rate
in the day that a man answering tho descrip
tion of Richmond had crossed the Neosho
five milfes below town, and had boldly struck
out across the prairies towards Baxter, twenty
miles east. Night overtook the puraueis be
fore they overtook the thief. Thus gained
an advantage that any fleeing murderer
might ardently desire. There are large corn
fields all along the route in which afc could
easiiy hide from his pursuers, even if they
were on the track of the right man. A num
ber of men continu ed the search, and were
joined by several from Oswego and Baxter.
HHE MUEDKKEB CAPTUKED.
JOBLT N, Aug 30s.Richmond, the man
who shot and Mlfed Maishal Clift, at
Chetopa, Kas. on Sunday morning, was
captured night before last, at his home in
Lawrence county, by United States Jffarshal
Graham, of the Indian territory. I., was
thought th#t Richmond would at osee -make
his way to his home, ana the United States
marshal at once proceeded to Lawrence coun
ty to intercept and capture his man. Ar
riving at Richmond's house found
that this man had not yet put in an appear
ance. therefore took possessien of the
premises, permitting no one in the hou se to
depart therefrom, nor permitting siders
to approach it. I this manner the officer
quietly awaited hour after hour, and at a late
hour on Wednesday night his vigil was re
warded by seeing Richmond slowly walking
up to-the house. Everything appeared serene
about the premises, and he walked unsus
pectingly right into the arms of th& waiti ng
officer, who topk him unawares and had him
disarmed before Richmond could- say Jack
W learn also that after the epture was
made the sheriff of Lawrence county re
fused to permit Graham to take his prisoner
out of the State witho ut a requisition from
be governor. A it would necessarily re
quire several days to obtain tbe necessary
papers the prisoner was taken imcharge by
he sheriff and placed iri the Lawrence
county jail, where he is now awaiting the
papers from Jefferson which will take him
baek to Kansas, the scene of Lis cowardly
murder. The feeling is naturally very bit
ter in and about Chetopa, and it is safe to
conclude that Richmond will get the full
benefit of the law.
