In an aspect uf awfulnesi that can

'Mr. llrdih Apologised tu tue oleik for the

out tl leaf n l cail McDormld. Wton
Mc. came in, he did net lay a vrord, only
tppc'd ild) Into a room for a moment.
When he returned, however, he caught
Iiruth by tho shoulders and
pistt-l o: ibovei hltn through
tho doorway, lirusb tcsmid
to to surprised, and merely laid, "Why,
Mac, thtru'i nothing between us. Why
treat mo thus" Upon this McDonald
diow a ptilol and shot him through the
bowc'.i. Tho ball tovered a main artory
and bibko lliu vcrtf-hal column. Mr.
lirash died In a fnw rnluutct. McDonnM
wat than arrested and bandcuffod, but the
olerk made an etcape. The excitement
was at a high pitch, and a guard of armed
men, placed on duty by the ofllceri who
have chrg: of tbo prUonr, barely )r.pt
blm from being dealt with by lynch-law,
Weaver it the name of tl.o man who
clerkol for McDonald.
Col. iiruth, the uncle of the murdered
man, at llm city attorney, hat aimed to
enforco and exocut the ordinance! by a
faithful dltcbargo nt his public duty.
McDonald hat boon twice trrosted and
brought to trial for lolling ardent iplrlti
without llccnio, and Col. Uruih has been
officially required to proiocute tbe caie.
Tfalt tecurel for him the enmity of Mc
Donald, who hit been regardod i a very
desperate and dangerous character; and
Col. Iiruth wa stricken down by a tud
dea blow In tbe dark, which
it is believed that McDonald gave; aod
efforti wars raido to burn and destroy hi
rutldence alto, although theru wa no de
tection of '.bo guilty ptrion. McDonald
wai a ealoon-keoper ia Murphyiboro tome
four yoari einct; had previously been in
tho mines; and for the last twu or three
year hai lived In Carbondal. Nobody
outcrlalni a good opinion of him, and he
hat alwayi borne the odium of hit neigh
bors at a reck kit and criminal man. It it
believed that ha murdered Mr.
G. W. Iiruth out of rcvongo and
iplte toward Col. Uruih. At twelve o'clock
yesterday, the tlorlff and the poite of
armed men woro fearful that McDonald
would fall into tho hand of the mot.
They are with the pritonor, and yet the
houte outtlde ii turrounded by people who
intend to lynch McDjnald if they can get
