News reached here to-day from Temeranc
Oik, Limestone county, of a triple trag

tho result, J.unes and Martin Lcntz, broth

men and the best of friends, until u few
das ago, when Coleman repeated a story
which be claimed the Lent, bo.vs had told
him, which was defamnton to tho charac
ter of several highly connected young ladles
In that neighborhood.
When friends of the young Indies heard
the story they began to tiocu It down,
Coleman refenlng them to the Lcntz boys,
but the latter denied that they had told the
story. This caused bad blood between the
oung men, and Inst uvuilng, when Cole
man was leturnlug home, he wns wajlald
by the Lentz brothers. They sprang out
as ho pissed uml one of them seized his
horse's bildle, while the other struck him
with a rock and shot him In the arm.
Coleman quickly returned tho lire, empty
ing his revolver. James Lentz was shot
In the abdomen and Martin In tno lungs.
Coleman then rode hurriedly away, send

both have since died. 1'ubllc SMupathy

Therefore ho grunts LI Hung Chang the
fullest powers to treat with Japan for the

on the part of tho Chinese to the progress

Washington, Mnrch 7. (Special.) A sen
sation wns developed to-day In the depart
ment of ngilciilturo by Information re
ceived from Uklahoma, It Is charged that
ccitain county i lei Its lu the Snip counties
have been making money out of the seeds
sent them fur distribution by the depait
mcut. Some wee-its ago the sccietnry of agrlcul
tmu decided to favor Oklahoma with un
additional 'i(',tl packages of seeds, owing to
the situation In some of tho counties. It
was also suggested that thu seeds be sent
to thu count) clerks fur distribution, which
was clone. Thus each county clerk re
ceived over 7,(W P ick.ige-s, to be distributed
to those calling for them.
Hut, nccorillug to information Hint has
1 cached the sceretaiy to-d,i. It seems
that eel lain clerks decided to charge GO
cents for each apportionment of seeds.
L.icli package contained tell different kinds
and one package- is allowed to each appli
cant. Hut a packages, such as furnished
by thu government, can be purchased for
W cents, anil thus It appears that the clerks
engaged In selling government seeds nre
cluiiglug even mine- than tho pi lee in the
open markets. Hut ns the Information
about government seeds is not generally
known the business uf making cxuihlt.mt
cli.il Res hns b. en .successfully carried on
In cettalu Strip counties.
It Is needless to obsciio that thu seeds
thus set apirt for the people of the Strip
were not Intended to be sold by the county
clerks. The seeds weiu furnished I15 Hie
government to be distributed fiee lo the
settlers, anil the cleiks knew It. It was
.supposed the) would gladly do tills work
without making charges as an accommoda
tion to the people of tho various counties.
Soon after the news 1 cached the 1lep.1t t
meiit to-day it was decided to call the
matter to the attention ot the ileparmeiit
uf justice and If possible punish the- cleiks
thus engaged. It was suggested at the- de
partment that this was obtaining monc
under false pretenses and the- amount
thus secured at the rate indicated b the
inlorm itlon would .ig'icgule f&i for each
cle-ik selling the seeds. An eifoi t will be
made- to h.ivu the- depiitmciit of Justice
take Hie- matter lu hand and meet the at
tending cleiks with punishment th it will
nut only thtuvv them uut ot olllcc, but will
lollow them with continued punishment for
taking money for heeds thus furnished b
the 1lpp.11 intent. It is believed the depart
ment of justice. In the Stiip will be able to
mike it vcij uncomfortable for thu 01-te-ndeis.
