A CLEAR CASE OF SELF WEFENSE
The Story of the Killing an Told by

The Crimiaal Court wsb crowded

up at o clock in the atternoon.

down to the corner. That be drank a
good deal that day and that be did not
care paiticuliily what was the recult

attempted to shoot bim end did not

followed bim in. lie then crisp ent
and went tooth toward Poplar street,
and found O'Donnell Btanding on the
corner, near uoodyfiirs drug store;
Monaaco was with McMabon. When
McMahon found O'Donnell fce ac
costed bim and words parsed them;
about this time Monasco jumped in,
remarkirg tbat "You are the man
that struck McMabon, atriking O'Don
nell several blows in the face, appar
ently as bard as he could bit bim.
caugbt Monasco by the coat and jerked
Mm back to the edge of the Bidewalk.
Then seeing McMahon move toward
O'Donnell, I releaeed Monasco uod
Etarted toward him, wrecchtug a pittol
fiom bis hands, which brought, my
back to O'Donnell and Monaeco. While
taking the pittol from McMahon I
boaid the fho", and heard Mouasco
say be was shot.
Raid he waa on his way home, ab ut
u:.su p.m. Mi en a (Jannon met bim
and to'.d bim be thought I had better
etny with him, as he expected trouble.
So I remained. Sheriff Cannon and
mvHjlf fjllowed Monasco and Mc
Mahon around the corLer, where they
fonnd O'Donnell. Monasco hit O'Don
nell, knocking him against tbo drug
store, anu as u ucuniUteil he tired.
O'Donnell was standing pei f ectly q uiet.
with bis bands behind him, and ee.med
to be perfectly peaceable. I saw Sheriff
uannon take a pistol from McMahon
about the time of the shootiog,
testified tbat he waa in store; tbat he
walked to the glaee window and saw
some one strike 0,'Donnell, who wan
standing out tide with bis baad behind
colored, testified "I saw Monasco shnt
np hisealom and saw McMahon come
out of it. The sheriff and McMahon
were together. McMahon stopped
and Cannon started to talk t) O'Don
nell. McMabon seemed to be very
angry and I ihink told O'Donnell be
would meet him the next dav. O'Don
nell told him he would meet him any
time. Monaeco ran in and struck
O'Donnell two or three times. lie
staggered back and shot.
ttifled: "I saw O'Donnell, McMahon,
Cannon and Toomey standing in front
of the Court-Housi), and McMahon
told O'Donnell he thonsbt be wai his
friend nntil that day. O'Donnell re
plied that he waa still hia friend, and
McMahon called him a d d liar.
Then O'Donnell struck McMahon and
knocked bim down. Then McMahon
went t) Harrington's saloon, and I
grabbed bim just as he started behind
the bar, I thiuk to get a pistol. I said
to him that be and O'Donnell both
had families, and they had better let
the matter drop, ai there was no use
in their filling out over this little elec
tion. Then Mack came out and met
Monaeco, whom we all call "Bull
Kun," in front of his (McMahon's) sa
loon. B'llt Run opened the d,;or, and
he aud Mack wont inside, and thev
c:oica it. in tbo mnant.nn t;,ipt.
Cannon tried to get in, but could not.
In about a minute Muck and "Bull
Kan" ctme out and came down toward
the Court-House. "Bull Kun" lorkinsr
the door after him. "Bull Run"
made nome remark about O'Donnell,
but I don't kuow what he did suv
about him. O'Donnell claimed I had
obrtructed the polli, aud was a little
mad with me. I had Dulled a vote
out cf a man's hand, and was at rested
and fined $100. That's what the elec
tion cost me."
testified: "I saw the difficulty. I
was standing in fiontof the court
house and heard O'Donnell and Mc
Mabon bave some woida. O'Donnell
struck McMahon and knocked him
down. Afterward I saw O'Donnell
standing on the corner of Poplar and
Main, and heard Monasco say. 'You
are the man who struck McMahon,'
and then struck O'Donnell or tried to
etrick him. I raw McMahon and
Monaeco come together down the
street from tbe direction of McMahon's
saloon, and Monasco sai J, 'I want to
see the man who knocked McMahon
down.' I was pretty full myself, and
don't think I was in a position to know
exactly what did occur. I heard
Monasco ask O'Donnell if he bit Mc
Mahon and rush at O'Donnell, who
then shot bim."
aid: "I witnessed the difficulty; I
stopped on the corner to find out who
lal been elected; McMabon and
O'Donnell were talking, and McMabon
t ild Donnell he would see him the
neat dny; O'Donnell told him he could
s-.e him t'.i'n, then Mooaxo jumped
in and Mrtick O'Donnell, when toe
ltUr rhot him,"
DS. D. P. OOODYEAB
said: "Tne difficulty took place near
the south door of my drugstore; I did
not r-e the shooting; when I heard
the r.iie 0"tide I went to the east
door; j i! no I did so I heard the shot
tired nt the rO'i'h door; I then looked
ami saw McMahon standing near

ing it to a Kht npon O'Donnell, at
which ii;t mt Sheriff Cannon grabbed
him and took it away from 1dm."
VKSDICT OF NOT GUILTY.'
When the evidence waa finished
Gen. Luke Wright, for defendant, said
if there ever was a case of self-defense
this was one, and he thought ita waste
of time to bosr a rnow testimony.
Ti.t Jt'oii-)-jenMal sa'.d he would

Cleveland's administration is a failure
in any sense. It is a success. :lt is
growing in strength Wause it is

The mugwump hope that he would

the only actual failure so far in Mr.
Cleveland's Presidential career.

Mere worils ar powerless to de
scribe yesterday's game Figures tell
the story much mon graphically -20
to 5 iii favor of Nashville wiw the
score. That tells the tale wiMi sutti
cient minnteness. It wim the worst
drubbing Memphis ever rtreived at
the hands of a visiting nine. But
nobody is greatly surprised. Such a
result was discerned lung ago. It is
even a matter of iimgratulation that
it came at a time when it cost so lit
tle. It wits only an exhibition game,
and a most painful exhibition it was,
too, not to say niortii'vimr. Tlie man
ner in w hich Nashville kept the home
nine running after the ball was exas
perating. It was a defeat of w hich mi
amateur nine might be ashamed,
but it was a wholesome defeat.
It will probably teach Memphis
that when Nashville turns a pitcher
loose it is hardly good policy for Mem
phis to engage hi in. As a general
principle that was as true a mouth
ago as it is now, but it took probably
such a dose as the home nine got yes
terday to enforce the principle upon
tho minds of certain persons with suf.
Ucient emphasis to make it acknow l
edged. That remit having been ac
complished it is perhaps reasonable to
1iom that a pitcher will be employed
to take the place of Voss, off" whom it
will not be jxissiblo for any club in
the Southern league to moke twenty
five base hits in one game.
The game hardly merits detailed
description. A few, sample innings,
selected at random, will serve to show
what kind of a game it was. Marr
(Nashville) was first at but. lie sent
a foul rly over third base, which
Whitehead mulled; he then bit safe
to center Held for two bases, (ioldsby
tried Fusselbach with a fly over
short, but the latter muH'eil, and
tioldsby was safe at lirst. Then ilil
lery stepped up ami knocked the ball
somewhere into left Held for three
bases, bringing in Marr und tioldsby.
Sowdors hit safe for two bases and
brought in llillery. Then Beard
came along und cut off a slice of the
pie for one huso, but was put
out trying to steal second. Sowiiers
ambled leisurely in on a passed ball,
and O'Brien look the stick und bad no
trouble in making a base hit. Hill man
then grabbed tlie ash, O'llrien going
to second on a passed bull; llittimin
hit to short una was intercepted at
first ; Maker took base on balls, Schcll
base bit to second, ami I'hclan mulled,
O'Hrien coming in, and linker third.
Marr then took another w hack, hit to
third huso, Whitehead fumbled, bnt
delivered the ball to I'helan, who
dropped it ; Schellhose made for sec
ond, and wus caught in a chose und
lint nut, but not before Haker
had scored. That made six runs
for Nashville, und an audible
grin begun to disseminate itself in the
audience. Black miuUt base on balls,
but fell a victim to Maker's (Incasing
and was caught in a chase between
first and second. lAvin took base on
balls, Andrews hit to second and
made first base, although I-iivni was
put out at second. Speed bit to
pitcher and was retired at lirst. The
second inning was not quite ho disas
trous, but tlie home nine seemed
badly demoralized. ioldsby hit safe
to second for one bag, stole second and
third on Colgan's bad throws,
llillery hit safe to left Held
for one bag, (ioldsby scoring.
Sowders hit to right field for
one base. Beard hit to pitcher, who
delivered the ball to third, retiring
llillery. O'Brien went out on a foul,
Bittmun out nt lirst on quickly fielded
ball from right field. Fusselbach hit
to short und failed to make first.
I'helan out on fly to left field. White
head, already tbo surest, best batter
in the nine, stmt a clean two-bagger to
left field. Colgan sent the ball safely
past first. Whitehead scoring. Voss bit
to second and expired at lirst. No moro
runs were made until the fifth inning,
when by bunching hits Nashville
scored 5 runs and Memphis!. The only
inning that excited any enthusiasm
was the seventh. Memphis bad threa
rren on bases, Voss, Colgan and
Whitehead, and nobody out. f thick
came up to do fir die, but elected I ho
latter, l-uvin then stepped in tlie
breach, or rather the diamond, ami
Rent a beauty to ccntwr-licld, landing
himself at first, und bringing White-
beail ami I olgan borne. The crowd
yelled with delight. It was the lirst
opportunity they had, and they im
proved it. 1 hey bad no chance after
that. Andrews Went out on a foul,
and Sneed failed to make first. In
the eighth inning Nashville made
four, and in the ninth four, Memphis
getting goose eggs. It must not be
forgotten also that Andrews made a
fine three-bagger in the sixth inning
which made bim very solid with the
