Kill wltn a BKteber-KntTe
a Negro Named Henry
At half-past eight o'clock last evening, a
well-known, colored man, named Henry
Walker, was stabbed and killed by r rank
Zimmerman, at the grocery store of the latter,
No. 73 Madison street, near the corner of
Third. When our reporter arrived at the
scene of the killing, the dead man lay on nis
back on the stoie floor, near the front door.
The floor was deluged in blood around him.
Police-Othcers Scott and Brennan had cnarge
of the store, and but few were admitted to
the place until the magistrate who was to
hold the inquest had arrived. Esquire
Spellman artived at ten o'clock, and a
iury ot inquest was at once summoned.
The deceased was nearly white, and wore
very plain clothing. He was known as a
quiet and peaceable old negro, who formerly
belonged to the family ot judge cam r.
Walker ot our city, riis wile is wormng ior
Dr. Brown, on Madison street.
The testimony introduced before the jury
was as follows:
Gna Davis, colored: Was present at the
time of the killing; the dead man owed
Zimmerman a dime; wanted another
drink; Walker said: "Hold on, I
will pay it, ran uis hand m nis pocaei;
Zimmerman said: "G d d n you, pay it
now;" Zimmerman struck him, and a young
man, a clerk in the store, named Conrad
Lehman. cau?ht and held him against the
counter; as he did so Zimmerman seized a
knite and -stabbed Walker in me oacs;
Wnlker got loose and fell, and as he did so
Zimmerman said: "G d d n you, I have a
mind to cut your throat; Walker made no
htfht. but struareled to eet loose; Walker
shoved Zimmerman as the latter struck him,
and thev staenrered back aeamst the meat-
bench; Conrad Lehman had hold of Walk
er's arms when the latter was stabbed by
Zimmerman; Walker fell across the coun
ter and then fell to the floor.
Gabriel Bowman: Was passing by at
the time; saw two men holding Henry Wal
ker; saw .immerman strike Walker with
a knife; Walker tell, and as he did so Zim
merman said, 'G d d n you, I'll cut your
turcat; don't fool with me when I have a
butcher-knife;" when he said this Walker was
lying over the counter, and Zimmerman held
his head back and held up the knife; Walker
made no fight; appeared to be attempting to
get loose; Walker was stabbed in the back
part of the store, and the scums continued
to the front; Walker was scuffling with the
two white men.
Esquire Spellman ordered the young man,
Conrad Lohman, under arrest, but he was
already uuder arrest in charge of Police
OtKcer Brennan. The wound was examined
by the jury. It was immediately under the
left shoulder-blade, the wound being the
width of the curved butcher-knne, which
was a weapon usually used by butchers and
others in cutting meat. It was very sharp,
and was covered with blood from point to
Oar reporter intetviewed Frank Zimmer
man at the Btationhuse after he was arrested
by Police Officer Chastaine, colored. Zim
merman stated that Henry Walker and Le
got into a fizht about ten cents for a drink,
which Walker refused to pay. During the
fight Walker phoved him back on the meat
block, and he (Zi-timerman) seized a butcher
knife nearby and, reaching over, stabbed him
in the back. He did not intend to kill Walker,
but only to frighten him; but when Walker
was stabbed, he (Walker) sud, "What have

was dead in a few seconds. Zimmerman said
he telt very sorry, and had no idea of killing
Walker, who was a Iriend of his and had
been frequenting his house.
Dr. Nuttall examined the wound and ex
plained its nature. The knife-blade had en
tered Walker's heart and produced death.

Conrad Lehman, the young man who held
Walker during the all ray, was sent to jail by
Esquire Spellman as accessory to the murder.
He is aged about sixteen years, and speaks
but little English. His part in the affair was
to keep Zimmerman and Walker apart, and
he had no hand in the sudden stabbing and
killing which followed, lhe store is owned
by A. R. Zimmerman an 1 wife, and at the
time of the homicide they were in attendance

Beecher need no further evidence that his-
name and fame are dear to the people of
Chicago than the demonstration of Sunday
morning and of last evening, lhe records
of the press show that the outpouring of the
people at Mr. Moodv s church was unprece
dented in the history of church attendance
in Chicago. Last evening M (Jormick hall
was packed. This does not mean that the
ordinary seating capacity only was filled, but
every inch ot space, on the Diattorm and in
the aisles, which would hold a chair, was
utilized. lhe audience was one ot the best-
looking, intellectually. Some of the most
cultured and rehned people ladies and gen
tlemen of the city were present, who gave
ample evidence of their complete enjoyment
ot Air. Ueecher s lecture by frequent and
hearty outburts of applause. This was the
last lecture ot the star course, to the mana
gers of which the people owe a debt of grati
tude for the opportunities afforded during
the course of hearing some of the best men
in the country." This wonderful orator is to
be in Memphis on Tuesday next. Judging
from the demand tor seats yesterday morn
ing there is no doubt but that Mr. Beecher
will speak to the largest audience ever seen
in the south. To the thousands coming fcom
a distance we say, "come on," there is room
for all. Mr. Beecher says he cannot go south
of Memphis on his present tour. He speaks
in Nashville Monday evening; here, Tues
day. The whole police force will be required
to keep people back from the depot on his
arrival. Special orders have been given by
the superintendent of the Memphis and
Louisville railroad to make connection at all
hazards with a view to have Mr. Beecher in
our city in time for his great lecture.
The (iermtn nairest.
Yesterday the beautiful grounds at Estival
park were crowded with children and their
parents. It was the annual celebration of
the German Maifest. a social event anxiously
looked forward to by not only our German
fellow-citizens, but by people of all nation
alities in our midst. Xo class of people in
the worid know how to get up and celebrate
festivals better than the Germans. They
enter into the enjoyment of such festivals
with good humor and zest, and their children
participate in the amusements. The annual
Maifest is a thing looked forward to by the
children of Memphis, and especially those of
German parentage. It is their great May
day, when they can romp, gambol and dance
to their heart's content, and enjoy themselves
to the top of their bent. Yesterday at Esti
val park Hundreds of happy little faces were
seen by our reporter; the children were every
where, and were in all kinds of mischief,
l'rof. Arnold's band discoursed sweet music
for the votaries at the shrine of the muse
Terpsichore. Old folks, young folks,
little folks, whirled and glided around
the pavilion to the music of u Strauss waltz,
and happiness beamed upon all. One thou
sand prizes were distributed among the chil
dren, and others holding entrance tickets.
The prizes were of such a character as would
please children and send them on a voyage
into the realms of delight. The Msennerchor
and Casino singing clubs in the evening ren
dered some excellent German music which
was fully enjoyed by the thousand visitors
present. At night the crowd at the park was
immense, over two thousand people being on
the grounds. JJancing was in order during
the night, and the festivities weiekept up
until an early hour this morning. The Mal
tese ot 13 1 a was a Buccess, financially and
socially. The best of order was preserved,
and fun and pleasure prevailed.

IXow to Treat Whooping Cough.
A citizen reports the following successful
experiments: "iour of my children were at
tacked by whooping cough in its most violent
form. A remedy was recommended to me
which I concluded to test first on two of the
sick children. They were apparently quite
well in about four hours alter i'.s application.
I then epplied the same treatment to the
other two children witn a like result. The
remedv used was Benson's ca peine porous
plasters. The plasters were cut in two parts
and one part applied over the breastbone,
and the other between the shoulder-blades of
each child. I regard the results obtained as
simply marvelous. I have since used the
article myself for ordinary coughs; and for a
pain in the small of the back, arising from
overexertion, and obtained relief almost at
once. jacob coleman,

Messrs. Weeks 3c Potteb Gentlemen : I have
been a great sufferer with Salt Rheum tor thirty
rears, commencing In my bead and face and ex
tending over the greater part of my body. I have
taken gallons of medicines for the blood of diffe ent
Kinds and tried good pnysicians, an or wnicn aa
me no good, and I came to the conclusion that I
could not be cured. But a friend called my attention
to an article In the Union on skin diseases, and I
got a box of Cuticurn. The first application was a
great relief, and the third took the scales all off, and
I felt like a new man. I have used three 60 cent
boxes, and my skin Is smooth and I consider myself
entirely cured. Hoping that tbla may be seen by
some one afflicted as I have been (If there Is any) is
mv earnest wish. And I cheerfully recommend it to
all persons afflicted with like diseases.
