NO BAIL ASKED FOR GRYMES.
The Late Clerk to the Treasurer In Jail?
Investigation Abont Completed.
Almut noon t?Bidr?Jay E. B. Grymes was
carrn-tl from the Second station-house to
Um Hustings Court and handed over to
the Citv Sergeant. Ibis was done by
order of Judge Witt.
There was a conference of counsel and
client in the court-room, at tho conclusion
of which Mr. (?oori_e 1). Wise stated to
the Court that as they were not aware
why the accused had be?n given up l?y hi?
bondsmen they had no motion to make.
Shortly after this Captain Epps lett the
City Hall with his prisoner, who was
taken to lu? homo for a few minutes and
thence to the jail.
It wits stated yesterday that one ot the
reasons why Qnr_MB'? bmid-men pave him
up was that it had been reported that he
was seen in Cliatiottesvillc. His counsel
positively deny tho truth of this, and say
except going a few miles up and down the
toad the accused was at Big Island all the
time ho was away.
Speaking to a Disr-ATcn man yesterday*
Commonwealth's-Attorney Smith said that
he had no authority to give permission to
any one on bail to leave tho city. Such u
person was in custody of his sureties. In
tins particular instance he knew nothing
of Grymes being out of the city until a
few days before the grand jury met, when
ono of the counsel asked him not to semi
the case before that body last Monday,
saying that Grymes was at Big Island and
would be produced at the proper time.
As to the bail-bond being forfeited in
consec-uence of Grymes's non-appearance
last Monday, for which timo ho was recog?
nized. Mr. Smith said this was not the case.
Yestorday morning Mr. Boudursuomitted
to Mayor Ellvson a partial report of the
result of his investigation of the books in
the Treasurer's office. A fuller ono is
looked for in the next few davs. when it is
believed that affair? will take an unex?
pected turn. The Mayor was in conference

noon he found the little fellow sitting ou
t .'if poroh waiting for him. The child ask.
cd permission to go out and play for

ran out and got on a passing wagon.
Several vehicles wero passing up the
street, one behind the other, and when a

In doing this he was knocked down by

Tallahassee, Fi_.. April IL?A shooting
affray took place on the piazza of the
Leon Hotel about a o'clock this afternoon
between 8. 8. Harvey, of Penasoola, and
J. E. Alexander, of Deland. narvey has
been one of the active workers for John
F. Dunn in bis contest for the United
States senatorship, and Alexander is here
in Call's interest Harvev waa seated on
the piazza when Alexander came up the
ateos with W. H. Clark, ex-postmaster of
Jacksonville. Harvey beckoned to Alex?
ander to walk down the porch with him.
Harvev had heard that Alexander had re?
ported that ho (Harvey) had boasted that
there was t'2.*>0,000 in hand at Tallahassee
with which to clef catcall, and he asked
Alexander if he had circulated this story,
adding that he did not propose to let him
or any other man tell damned lies about
Alexander asketl if Harvey meant to call
him a liar, and upon Harvev'? replying
"Yes." he struck Harvey a blow on the
1p ft templa. Then both men drew their pis?
tols almost simultaneously. Harvey fired.
Clark struck his arm up and the ball
missed Alexander. Alexander turned and
ran, and Harvey fired a second shot at him
as he passed through the door. Clark,
still straggling with Harvey, then ran to
the door and fir-'l a third shot at Alex?
ander as the latter disappeared through
the back door ot the office leading to the
barber-shop. None of the shot? took affect,
with the exception of a spent ball, which
hit Albertus Vogt in the foot, doing no in?
RAO TO noDOE.
In a gToup within twentv feet of Harvev,
when he fired und in a direct line of his
shots, were E. EL Purdy, of Davton- J. G.
Spottswood. A. Vogt, and F.W. Hawthorne,
agent of the Associated Frees. They had
to dodge the balls to escape being hita
When Havey fired the third snot across tho
office there were half a dozen people pass?
ing in and out of the ?lining-room and up
and down the stair*. But luckily no one
was hit. Tho wildest excitement prevoded
for a few tniuure?. and the whole hotel was
in an uproar. Several minor altercations
grew out of the affair, but nothing serious.
HOW HABVEY OOT THE DBOP.
Alexander says that his pistol caught in
the case a? ho was pulling it from his
pocket, which enabled Harvey to "get the
drop " on him. After that he did not dare
to fire tor fear of hitting Clark, who was
Btruggling with Harvey. Alexander un
douliteilly owes his life to Clark's inter?
ference. No arrests were made, but the
Mayor served notice on both men to appear
in court Monday morning.
TUET WILL HE FINED.
It is predicted that ho will fine hoth men
hoavily under two"or threo different
charges. Alexander'? friends had told him
earl-; in the day that Harvey was looking
for him and that there would be trouble,
and one of theso friends ha<l insisted that
Alexander tako his pistol, which he finally
did. It was in arulibs- in his hip-pocket,
just as when handed to him a short time
