On Friday night a man by the name of

took some medicine between 2 and 3
o'clock Saturday morning; hearing him
groan, bis sister-in-law supposing him to
have beea taken suddenly worse, opened
his room door - and called to him,
but receiving no answer she resolved to
call in some of the neighbors. Mr. Neonan
was the first to arrive, who, on entering the
room, discovered blood on the floor. ' Sher
rard was covered over with the bed clothes.

had made an attempt ob his life. Upon

waa taken to the city hospital and proper

PISTOLS FOR ONE. I
How a Faithless; RVincennes Lover was I
Brought to Time.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.l
Vincennes, Ind., Dec 1C. —A highly sen
sational affair occurred this afternoon, the
participants being well connected, which
has occasioned considerable gossip in bus
iness and social circles. For some time
trouble has been brewing between a school
teacher, Miss Annie Stuart, of this city,
and Mr. Charles M. Wetzel, an attorney,
Miss Stuart alleges that Mr. Wetzel is her
betrothed, and the faithless young limb of
the law having grown tired of her
caresses has of late been giving his
attention to another highly respectable
young lady of the city, Miss Stuart has
grown desperate and despondent,and in her
jealous frenzy has endeavored in every way
to win her lover back to her heart. Not
succeeding in this she plotted against her
lover, and secured the services of a rela
tive, Mr. T. O. Gardner, in her behalf. The
latter gentleman made a business appoint
ment with the attorney to meet, him'at
Squire Stark's residence, across the
Wabash, in Illinois, . where he
ostensibly had some deeds to
convey to a mythical party. Wetzel kept
the appointment promptly, but to his dis
may, was met at the door by his discarded
sweetheart, who stoutly asserted that Wet
zel should marry her. A friend had se
cured the girl a marriage license in Law
rence, 111. Wetzel refused tb,comply with
the girl's request. She then drew a revol
ver upon him, when he started into a rnu,
which resulted in a lively race across the
river bridge, over half a mile, but the girl
was not fleet-footed enough for her recre
ant lover, who escaped her and left the
city for parts unknown. The young lady
is determined, and means vengeance. The
affair creates much excitement. ."';.;, j '

Minneapolis, Dec 16.—Mayor Ames re

him out and found him oomfortaby seated ~
in the mayor's office busy with municipal '
affairs, and looking as happy as nsnal. and ■■,
perhaps improved by his trip. After a f *-w

to any inquiry whatever. j But I am confi

"Yes, I saw. the telegram from Wash
ington published in the Washburn -pre*"-,
asserting that I had demanded a seat in
the congress now in session, and the like.;
I can only say that I believe that telegram
was sent at the instanca of W. D. Wash
burn. Every man with whom 1 talked in
VV.isb.ißgt or knew well my mission, and
. 4-htmra 29 the only man who would make
such absurd misrepresentations, because he
..:■ j..itii rally t:_e only man interested to
that extent. I went for the purpose of
collecting, .is I told you on the eve of my
departure,printed reports of. the tes'i.
mony introduced in all the recent cases
of contested seats in congress, the re
port of the committees to whom such mat
ters had been referred, together with aS
the legal points I could glean. I met
with the most gratifying success, even
beyond my anticipation, and you know my
friends give me credit of being very
sanguine. I received most excellent coun
sel from a number of the leading Demo
crats of the country, and will begin the
contest now as soon as possible. 1 have
evidence which will surprise the Wash
burn folks. People will . laugh
and people will weep. : hearts
though apparently made of stone will ache
and perhaps bleed. Facts will be brought
to the surface. While in New York city I
visited the coroner to make a request that
I should receive a copy of all papers left
by Louis Olsen, the man who was so crazed
by Washburn's corruption funds that he
murdered his wife and killed himself, j I
mean the papers relating to Washburn and
the Minneapolis & St. Louis railway. ' 1
was referred to Mr. Gerry' vie president of
the Society for the Prevention ol
Cruelty to Children in New YorK
and met him by appointment. Mr
Garry is one. of the best informed
and leading attorneys in this country, EH
a pleasant and "affable gentleman. I at-;
him at the headquarters of the associatioi
where the three little Olsen children ?.r(
cared for. He informed me thai the tw<
vrtlisfcs which Oisen bad left at the note
where he shot his wife, had hist been takei
into the custody, of the society and secure
ly sealed. & They will soon be opened jby
the New York Trust company, who hate
been appointed guardians for the little or
phans. „- These valises were • unfortunately
allowed to remain in the hotel until just
about the time I arrived in the city. In
reply to my r inquiry, .1 was informed
that if these ; effects'/ had been
tampered with it had been' done at the in
stance of two Minneapolis ' gentlemen wno
arrived : just subsequent *to the tragedy.
Mr. Gerry assured me that I should have &
certified copy of . all papers -pertaining; to
Olsen's acting as land agent for the Min
neapolis & St. Louis Railway company,: to
the recent election campaign in Minneap
olis and to Washburn in any particular.
