If o. II ho could tell me why he waa shot. In

Dr. Klmhark having examined the wound pro
nounced It very serious. He could not poel
tliely assert that It was fatal, although the fact
thai the bullet waa a very large one, that It made
a Jagged wound, and that It did not bleed much
externally, I almost conclusive evidence that It
Is mortal. 'Hie weapon used by ttisi murderer
wa an old-fashioned Derringer rifled pistol,
near half an Inch diameter In the bore, and must
bnve carried a bullet o? about one ounce weight.
It bore no marks upon It by which It could be
particularly Identified. It waa khort and heavy,
and the barrel closely rilled. It wa. evidently
nude to fire at a short dUtamv. and Intended to
kill. Tlie clothes bore no marks upon them by
which they could be dlttlnuulahml Tho coat
was of gray tweed, mid evidently made for a
small man. The lining la of a dark color, except
the sleeves, which hy the gaslight appeared to
be drab. In the pocket was a common white
handkerchief, with n common border, repre

At Donohue hat asserted positively that John
Hcannell had fired the fatal shot, a visit to tha

wa deemed necessary.
The person in this house said that John Scan
ncl was at Copake, on the Harlem Itallrosd. mid
had been there for al least eight weeks. If,
therefore, the assailant was John Scannell, he
must have coiiio to this cllv to shoot Ilonohuo,

ThnniHS Donohue, the rcpua'd murderer of

That the murder waa prearranged and every
chance of Its non-aiiccea guarded against, und
that the assassin waa aided and countenanced
by three or four men hired for tho oocaslon, or
v olunteera In a cause which thoy believed sacred,
thero Is hardly a doubt. Johnson's saloon was a
source of nttractlon last night on account of the
sale of pools on the election, the main feature of
Interest being the Mayoralty. The pool buyera
began to aatomblo at a little after seven o'clock
and whllod away tho tlmo which Intervened by

worn tho Interest felt In hla movements a year
ago to a thread by tils Inactivity In the course ho
had openly declared to have espoused, namely,
to rovenge the death of Florence hy killing Don

at the time, probably not, for ho had but few
friends In the crowd, nlthoitgh there wore many
who were struck with a feeling of pity when

but many surmise that he Jtit went homo nnd
then walk, d to tho lllossoin Club nnd gazed

on the statement of a, gcntlouiaii who positively
declares that about right o'clock he saw Scan
