But Can't Tell How Feels in
INQUEST ON THE DEAD MAN.
The Story of the Affair the Same as
Givon by Yesterday's "Globe."
HAMILTON'S FRIENDS RESPOND,
And Order the Body Kept Until They
Can Reach St Paul.
At an early hour yesterday morning,
Beach, the man who shot Alex. Hamilton
the day before in a saloon row, was brought
out of hia cell. Hia face showed up double
sized from the beating he had received.

and cool off his bruises. While thus engaged
Chief Weber and a GLOBE man accosted
"Do you know the result of your shot,
"Your man ia dead."
"Well, I declare!"
"Yes he died last night about 8 o'clock."
"Well, I am sorry I would not hare had

The man neither seemed star
tled, alarmed, or particularly
distressed at the announcement of his
victim's death. While speaking as above, he
continued to bathe his face, and uttered his
common-placa regrets, while his face was out
of his hands. Then he'd plunge into the
hand lull of water, and gently rub his bruis
ed face. Doubtless, the man feels the hor
ror of his position, but being a dull, ig
norant, stolid creature, he can't give expres
sion to his feelings. Under the circum
stances, coupled with his intellect, ho can
not, and does not feel acutely. After he had
sufficiently cooled eft' his sores and bruises,
he was condncted over to the municipal
In the Municipal Court.
About 9 o'clock Chief Weber and Officer
Baer conducted the prisoner, Beach, into
court. Formal complaint was entered
against him by the chief. Accordingly the
-clerk read the complaint charging James Ira

in the second degree, in the slaying of Alex
ander Hamilton on the 15th day of Novem
ber, 1878, in the city of St. Paul, etc.
"How say you to the charge, guilty, or not
guilty?" asked the judge.
The prisoner, who was sitting down, re
moved a red cotton handkerchief from ca

The PrisonerNo, sir.
The CourtHe stands committed to jail.
Officer Baer then took Beach in charge
and led him over to the county jail. There
he was assigned to cell No. 8.
Shortly after Beach had become award of
the publio, and had taken quarters at Ramsey
county expense, a GLOBE man stepped in
and got him summoned up to the bars.

each one attentively, and became absolutely

"You have roamed about considerably?"
"Yes, but I always worked. There was a
young fellow in here asking me questions

asked me al out where I had been and
all that. I see you've got it all in this paper
(patting the GLOBE). I haven't much to
tell. I have just drifted along."
The man spoko the last words in a thrift
less kind ot a way, and then returned to re
read the GLOBE'S report.
The man is a fair specimen of the Jersey
sand-hill coaster, a Georgia cracker or a
North Carolina* dirt-eater. Beach was told
m- t, i i lL 1
that "time was up," and sauntered back to
his new quarters.
The coroner's inquest was held at 10
o'clock A. M. at Dr. Stein's office on Third

game of cards for the drinks he and Murphy
got into a game of cards and eveiything
passed oft pleasantly they played six games
they lost three games apiece Mr. Murphy
paid for the first two games lost, and the
otheia were paid for except the last Beach
lost that he jerked up his valise to go out,Ryan
when witness standing behind the bar called
out to him that theie was 10
cents on him. Th man (Beach)
answered, I don't believe I do then wit
ness said he'd leave it to Murphy. Murphy
said "yes." Witness said he didn't care
about the 10 cents, but didn't want him
(meaning Beach) to go out charging him for
what he hadn't got. Witness told him as
he had got it, he ought to pay for it. At that
the man put his hand down into the breast of
his shirt and pulled out a revolver, anew one.
He cocked it, but didn't point it at anyone.
He held it downwaid, and said, I would like
to see you or any other sn
of a bh make me pay that 10
cents." Witness then came from
behind the bar walked up to Beach and said
to him, "you'd better put up that revolver, it
is not necessary to pull it out for 10 cents."
Mr. Hamilton, sitting in a chair two or three
seats back, jumped up and grabbed the re
volver by the muzzle thinks with the right
hand. The revolver went off. The next I
heard was the report. As quick as the report
was heard, witness struck Beach and knocked
him down. Then Mr. McDermott came up,
and said do you know Alex, has been shot.
Witness had known Hamilton for a week.
Witness said, "is he shot," and McDermott
said "yes, and bad, too, I am afraid." Witness
then said: "It's too bad to have an innocent
gentlemen shot like that." This man
Beach, then came up and says, "there's my
revolver." At this witness said, "don't you
never speak to me," and pushed Beach out
of the door: he, Beach, fell out on the side
walk. McDermott then made the remark to
some one, "watch him, while I get a police-

Beach came in the saloon. Then Ryan took
his place and witness went up town. When
he came back the game of cards was just
done. heard them talking about ten
cents, but he didn't pay any attention, as
he knew nothing about it. Mr. Ryan said
the man owed ten cents for the game. Th
man said he would not pay. Mr. Ryan
said ho shouldn't go out without paying for
the game. The man took up his valise. Th
man then said, I would like to see some
Gd dn man make me pay, or get away
with me, either." Then Beech drew a re
volver out of his blue shirt and cocked
it. Then Hamilton jumped up
and was shot. grabbed and got the
revolver. He, Hamilton, was laying against
the counter, trying to cock the revolver he
had taken from Beach he was too weak

William Foos, a lad about 14 years old,
was next sworn. Witness related who waa
in the bar-room. Saw Sylvester Ryan have
hold of the man's (Beach) shoulder, and told
him he had to pay ten cents before he left.
The man had a rdvolver in his hand point
ing towards the ground. Then Alex,
came up behind the man, caught the
revolver, and the man pulled the trigger and
shot Hamilton. Then the fighting com
menced, and the witness left the saloon by
the back door. Witness just looked in and
came in the saloon just as Ryan and the man
were standing up. Didn't see the game of
cards. Witness had seen Alex about the sa
loon for about a week never had seen the
man Beach before.

Ryan, the bar tender, Hamilton and Beach.
Beach and Hamilton were playing cards.
They played one game, and Hamilton lost
saw the beer lost on the game drank, but did
not see anybody pay for it. All sat talking
awhile, and then Beach said to him (Murphy):
"Friend, don't you wish to play a game of
cards for the drinks?" Witness accepted,
and they played five games then Beach pro
posed another game Beach lost at the end
of the fifth game all was paid up at the end
of the last game Beach picked up his valise
and started out. After which witness' tes
timony was confirmatory of the testimonv
given by Ryan. Witness stated that while
Beach had his revolver out he kept it pointed
towards Ryan all the time McDermott

McDermotfs Business Status.
As Mr. McDermott's saloon has became
notorious by reason of the tragedy enacted
there, it were well to inquire, what is his
business status? has only opened out at
the corner of Washington and Eagle streets
very recently. Formerly the place was kept
by Charles Kellerman. This latter had a
beer license, duly taken out June 18th, 1878,
and numbered 29. Kellerman now keeps a
beer saloon on Washington street, opposite
the Metropolitan hotel. There is no record
of the transfer of Kellerman's license to Mc

THE DRIVEN WELL ROYALTY.
A Committee From Farinington Ylsits
Winona in the Interest of Organized
Opposition to tlie Payment.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
WINONA, Minn., Nov. 16.Messrs.
Fluke and Martin Robinson, representing the
anti-diive well association of Farmington,
Dakota county, to contest the right of the
patentees to collect ten dollars royalty on each
well, arrived here on Fndav to consult with
parties who had been sued "in Winona. They
brought a list of the defendants taken from
official records in St. Paul, amounting to one
hundred and fifty well owners, -who have been
sued in Farmington. They are summoned to ap
pear in St. Paul in December. The Winona
defendants appear in January. Two thousand
dollars have been subscribed in Farmington
to fight the monopoly. The estimated cost of
carrying the case to the supreme court is ten
thousand dollars. A public meeting will be
held at the court house to-night to discuBS the
proposition made by the committee from
Farmington, and if possible organize a 'similar
association. Some seven or eight hundred
citizens of Winona have already paid royalty,
and it is not likely that the meeting to-night
will result in any strong organized movement
to resist payment of the royalty.

BOSTON, NOV. 16.In their annual report the
directors of the Old Colony railroad says: "We
regret to announce a disaster of great magni
tude, which occurred on the line at Wollaston,

steps to adjust fairly all reasonable claims for
damages and have already naid considerable
sums to various claimants. There still remain
many unsettled claims, some of large amount.

They Don't Like It When It Goes Against
Why did the secretary of state issue im
perfect blanks for election returns this year?
Was he unaware that members of Congress
were to be elected or wa3 it a trick in omit
ting them? If a trick, it is likely to be a
boomerang. I Meeker and Stearns coun
ties Mr. Donnelly was cheated out of several
hundred votes by the failure of judges of
election to make returns. So in Dakota
county Mr. Poehler lost several precincts
from the same cause, and now comes Hen
nepin county and reduces Mr. Washburn's
majority by some 700 votes, caused by the
use of these defective blanks. Whereat the
brethren get up on their hind legs and
The Coming Contest.
Mr. Donnelly has made a gallant canvass,
which even his most bitter enemy must ad
mire. Almost single handed he ha3 waged
a battle against the most gigantic and cor
rupt political ring that has ever disgraced
Minnesota politics and has fairly beaten hia
before the free and unpnrchasable
voters of the district. And more, he intends
that the people shall not be cheated of their
victory, if an appeal to the American Con
gress can prevent it. At any rate he will
make the corrupt practices of these rings so
odious, that they will not be heard of again
in the Third district.
