MADE MAD BY JEALOUSY.
Cottonwood Falls, Kan., April 27.
For some time past A. C. Cox, a promi
nent ice man of Stronc City, bad been
threatened byN. A. Dobbins, deputy sher
iff of this county, because of Cox's alleged
improper relations -with Mrs. Dobbins.
Last night after the Remiblican primaries
the two met on the road near Dobbins'
house. No witnesses heard what passed,
but Dobbins drew his rerolver and as Cox
-tarted to run. fired twice, the second shot
entering tne right nip and passing into the
Dobbins then went down the street and
infoi med a passerby that he had killed Cox.
In the meantime the latter had mauaged
to drau" himself to a neighboring house
and get assistance.
Neither Dobbins nor Cox will make any
statement, and as yet Dobbins has not
been arrested. Both were prominent, and
the shooting caused the greatest excite
ment. Cox is conscious but suffering cre.tt
paiu, and the surgeons have not as yet been
able to locate the bullet.

Guthrie, Ok., April 27. The biggest
meeting that was ever held in open
air to elect officers was held at this
place last evening between the hours
of thiee and eight o'clock. After a lengthy
discussion of different subjects there weio
three men put before tho convention for
mayor, Senator Kelly of Kansas, Hill of
Oregon, Hoggart of Dakoto. Just at sun
set there was a motion made to hae the
supporters of each candidate form a line
and of all the excitement yet in Guthrie,
this ran the highest. The sore throats are
numerous this morning from the loud
yelling last evening. The vast multitude
of people in forming the lines went five in
breast aud were counted by tallymen ap
pointed by chairman of meeting. The vote
was in favor of Hoggarfc when at eiuht
o'clock there was a motion of adjourn
ment till this morning at 9 o'clock.
Kelly had the biggest support of
any man before the meeting, until
a great many found out he was
Kansas man and were foolish
enough to think if he was elected there
would be strictly Kansas rules and regu
lations, and at once the whoop went up,
"we don't want any prohibition in ours."
Each candidate for mayor have made long
and good speeches since the work has
been in progress to organize the city, and
hae made many warm friends which
they very enthusiastically are supporting.
The meeting will be called to order this
morning at 9 o'olock, when they will pro
ceed to finish the work of electing city of
ficers, and that of electing a mayor will be
of great interest. The supposition is that
Hill will get there. P. D. Cunningham, J.
W. McXeal, of Medicine Lodge, and J. T.
Frost, of Mt. Hope, and many other Kan
sas boys, are among tho soro
throat crowd. This morning Cunningham
seemed so loyal that at times he had his
hat, coat, vest off and his sleeves rolled up
hallowing, "This way for help. For just
about two hours this was contiuued.
A bank which is organized by Missouri
men got as denosits up thus far two hundred
thousand dollars, and still Ihero arc people
here who are continually reivmu money
by express which they are depositing sb
fast as they receive It.
I understand we are to have registered
letters through the postoffice by Saturday
the 27th. but if matters continue as they
are at present it will worry a man almost
to death to await his turn. There has
been as hich as ten dollars paid for posi
tions in the file iu f rout of the postodice.
Your correspondent counted one hundred
and twenty-five people in front of window,
or rather a crack in a little 8x10 canvass
tent. Postmaster Flynn seems to be doing
all in his power to deliver
the mail to the thousands of
people who call daily. The different
dailies get first-class treatment frdm Jlr.
Flynn by getting the dailies to their re
presentatives five minutes after they re
delivered to tho office. The greatest ob
jection which a great many have is tho
great number of gamblers and fakirs. For
instance, tho shell game, wheel of fortune,
chuck-luct, stud, soap, etc., but as yet
there has not been a single disturbance
created by these fellows and they are al
ready collecting fines of from 10 to?25
from them which will bo used for survey
ing aud platting the different additions to
the city of Guthrie.
The different communications in sever
al daily papers in regard to bloody fights
down in this country are false, aud if we
can succeed in keeping the Wichita EAGLE
upon the line of truth in this grand rush
ir. will be the paper tho people will appre
ciate. THE MA.TORALTT SETTLED.
The long and hard pull for mayor of
Guthrie, Ok., was finished today by tho
election of Colonel D. H. Dyer, of Kansas i
City, Mo. The fight at first seemed to be i
between Senator Kelly, of Kansas; P. T. I
Hill, Indian territory, and Hoggart, of
i . -it-u .i. ., . ,
Dakota. hen the matter was voted on
tho first time Haggart was a little ahead, t
consequently the Kelly and Hill factions I
mixed a littleand downed Haggart accord- '

but the Hoggart crowd were worked up i

election by default. However, the matter
was settled as unsatisfactory and Col. Dyer '
was put in the field and elected first mayor i
of the city of Guthrie. Otc The meeting I
continued under Chairman Constantine.
! of Springfield, O., and a man who has
i worked faithful and nonest in every meet
I ing and has made the people of Guthrie
like him for his faithfulness.
After the election of Colonel Dyer the
following councilmen were sworn in: Rob-
ert Hill, Oregon; S, S. Sargent, Florida;
Geo. Orbnt, Dakota; W. H. Filiis, Tennes

The entire set of city officers elected here
today was met by your correspondent and
it can be said for that body of men never
before m any country was a crowd of men
who showed bv their looks of determma- !
tion that "the right shall prevail,"' as did
The greatest trouble concerning the
gron th and interest of the town of Guth
rie seems to be the mingling up of claim
ants of lots. tho who were here as they
claim first, made their tet laments observ
inc streets and alleys and as people came
in later, seeini: and "knowing that the best
lots were alrendv taken, proceeded at
MrWk r t-nnn- n U . .tcwyifr rtl- KiT -...4 . .
Ksthev h3 1 much right io
wttlement on those lots as any one else.
The greatest trouble seems to bv. as some j
call it, evidence of the fact that the pre- I
ent townsite plat was filed or at least j
settled upon be ore the time thattbeprej-i-I
dent's proclamation said that they might; I
go upon the lands, some say they can
swear parties were upon tnee grounds
forty-tisht hours before the appointed
time. Again, others will show that parties
came here and had their tents pitched
upon the ground as government employes
and-resigned their positions at 12 cclock
Monday in order to posess some of the
choice property, and the question is
whether or not Secretary Noble will cer-
mit such filing to go upon record and
stand. The majority think ho will take
the glat sent to him Monday by first
parties under consideration and await the
wishes of the people, which upon
a present sate bases number at
least six thousand inhabitants
before he approved of anything, as in
order to have a good, thrifty city the sat
isfaction of the majority should be se
cured. The discontented portion held a
meeting to organize a new town or rather
two, one in west Guthrie and one in east
Guthrie, which if things are not settled
pretty soon on original site, will be done
and good streets be thrown wide open for
travel, and the streets which should be
open stand spotted with little insignificant
The first resolution sustained by the
honorable council will be of value to those
who have built in the street or squatted in
back part of different lots.
Resolution No. 1.
"Resolved, That that all persons shall be
notified to not build on streets or anv part
of a lot running into the street in order to
hold a right over first settlers."
The opinion, however, at present pre
vails that the streets of Guthrie will be
peaceably cleared and a i o. 1 business town
will be theirs in the course of a few days.
Colonel Jones, United States marshal,
informed your correspondent that the
many sensational articles appearing in the
evening papers are false and without
foundation, and that he has never until
this time appointed a deputy at Purcell,
where some of the Dapers mentioned such
a high state of trouble.
The Wells-Fargo are handling their
matter in a very batisfactory manner
considering the great rush. Mr. Conner,
the general manager at this place, inform

six carloads of express unloaded at Guth

THE DEATH OF HEBEIXCOb'RT.
The body of TV. V. Hereincourt, of Du
buque, la., who was special artist for
Harper's Weekly, was taken north on to
day's express in charge of his brother.
Mr. Hereincourt fell dead iu front of
his tent here in Guthrie. The cause of his
death was certainly that of apoplexy. A
committee of five was chosen to draft
resolutions of respect, and after each mem
ber had prepared a short article of respect
they consented to lay them before Chair
man Constantine for his approval and
then to the home council which they
heartily sustained and will forward to the

QUIET AT KINGFISHER.
Order Kept by Three Sets of City Officials
Ihe Postoffice Not Opened.
Special dispatch to tljo Dally Eacle.
Kingfisher, Ok., April 27. The excite
ment at this place is at a lower ebb than
at any time since the opening of the terri
tory. Tho land office is not so crowded
but what claim-holders may file in a
reasonable time after arriving. The town
lot speculators are still here and awaiting
lumber to arrive so that the main streets
may be established by placing the most
substantial buildings on those streets
The surveyors are at work locating the
streets and alleys and much dissatisfac
tion is arising from the survey, as it neces
sarily locates muny in the streets and thus
throws them entirely out of any lot. Men
who had been offered from $5 to $100 for
lots a few days ago are now wholly thrown
out. Joe Moffit, ex-marshal of Kingman,
Kan., has filed on the same quarter the
land office is located on and objects to
proving it up as a town site. But the lo
cators seem to pay no attention to him and
are locating on it as a town site. Many
contests are sure to grow out of the pres
ent condition of affairs.
The three sets of city officers are co-operating
in keeping good order, but a very
determined effort is being made by Lisbon
and Kingfisher each to override the other.
The Kausan who has so long feasted on
town site fights is hero in all his glory.
They seem to be the main schemers for
The terrible sand and wind storm that

The postoffice has not been opened yet
aud it is estimated tnat at Outline and
Caldwell fully ten thousand letters and
packages are awaiting the announcement
of the star route to be forwarded to this
place. Man- people left the states expect
ing the postoffice would be established
here and mail aud expiess matter would
bo at once forwarded. The Rock Island
people have established a ticket office hero
and have very kindly carried all mail
matter from this place, but have not been
authorized to receive mall pouches from
this place. Many persons left home with
a small amount of money and instructed
drafts or registern letters to be sent
hut no communications of anv kind have
yet arrived. Stamps and stationery are
very scarce; some have paid as high as $1
for a 2-cent stamp. Copies of the Eagle
have sld. here r 25 cent. Everybody
seems to be anxious to hear from home.
PartlCT are daiIy arrivinR here from thee

PROSPEROUS STEVENS COUNTY,
Special dispatch to the Dally Eacle.
Hugoton, Kan., April -T. With tho
late rains Stevens county blossoms as tho
rose. The prairie looks beautiful covered
with green. The buffalo grass is at least
four inches high and seems to got more
thrifty year by year.
The new $7,000 school building now un
der course of construction is admitted by
all our neighbors in adjoining counties to
be tho most complete in architectural de
sign of any put up in southwest Kansas.
This building is under tho efficient man
agement of Messrs. Bunyan & Stark, men
who have had great experience in build
ing. It is estimated that millions of forest
trees have been planted in this county this
spring and owing to the abundant rains
are making a good growth. Cottonwood
and black locust seem to bo the most
hardy in this climate and are mostly
planted on th.vt account.
Crops of all kinds are doing well. Corn
is coming up well. Our eastern friends
vvouki be surprised to seethe beautiful
alfalfa fields we have iu this country; this
grass is now one foot high and one crop
can soon be harvested and acain another
thereafter. This is a most valuable grass
for this country.
Fruit trees of all kinds are doinjt well and
many peach trees w ill bear this spring. Only
three years ago the roaming buffalo could
be seen in this county.
Hugoton has arranged to advertise her
resources and advantages to thoic people
in Oklahoma who must eek homes else
where. .No country can offer any better
inducements than Stevens conntv, as all
admit that Kansas affords no bettor Innd
j than here. Land can be obtained at rea
sonable prices, so tnat an can aiioru to
purchase homes with limited means.
Mr. John Itutter will havechargo of this
advertising campaign in Oklahoma, and
his aDilitily is well known in southwestern
Kansas as a rustler, and tho people hero
have great faith in him in this capacity.
We expect migration herefrom that over
crowded country soon after his arrival
The EAGLK'P popular agent. G. W, Mc
Millan, was here the other day erecting

It is estimated that 10,000 acresof broom
