son-in-law, JIM Jizlcr, nml Instantly
killed. Two bullies were llrcd Into his vic
tim by tho murderer, who then lied,
l'razlcr and Oxford came to this county
recently from Clinton county, Mo, It seems
there had been somo trouble between the
oM man and l'razler, tho latter accusing
hia father-in-law of causing .-i separation
between him and his wife. This morning
Frnzler rent word to Mr. Oxford that he
wanted to sec him. Tho old man, accom
panied by his ton, went to Frazlcr'3 resi
dence, which Is not tar away, and on ar
riving it hero was met by Fnir.lcr, who re
marked that lie proposed to shoot him
down and suiting tho action to the word
hew a pistol and fired twice, both ball3
taking effect, killing tho old man instantly.
Krazler made his escape, but the sheriff
and a posse are In hot pursuit and there Is
little doubt of his capture.
A dispatch to tho Journal from Ivcavcn

DURRANT'S LAST PROP FALLS.
llli Ilupo of Itiihlliliiiig nil Altlil Will Ho

San Francisco, Oct. C The Examiner
says: One of the greatest sensations in tho
Durrant case, and ono which comes now
as a climax with crushing weight upon tho
accused student, has become tho property
of tho prosecution. Theodore Durrant not
only confessed to a classmate that he had
no notes of Dr. Cheney's lecture but he
begged his friend to take Ills notes to his
mother, Mrs, Durrant, that they might be
"I have no notes of that lecture," tho
accused student said, "and I only need
them to complete my alibi." When tlu
student to whom Durrant mado this con
fession takes the witness stand tho crumbl
ing fabric of tho defense will fall. The
h-tudent to whom Durrant made tho fatal
acknowledgement -is his classmate and
friend, Dr. Gilbert F. Graham. It was not
(lrnlinm's purpose to tell what ho knew, for
The sake of an old friendship, for 'the mem
ory of his college days with Durrant, Gra
ham had held back part of his story.
lie had informed the police that Durrant
had asked him for his notes, but he did
not wish to tell the prosecution the whole
story, and repeated Durrant's confession
that he had no notes of that lecture. I.Ike
Charles A. Dukes, he did not wish to Injure
his classmate's case, but now he has de
stroyed its Inst support, lie has given to
tho prosecution what they sought so long
in vain. Ho supplies through Durrant him
self the proof that tho accused student was
not at the lecture delivered by Dr. W, F.
Cheney on April 3. lie explains why Dur
rant "Quizzed" with F. F. Glazer on April
10. Ho reveals Durrani's purpose in ask
ing Charles A Duke to say that he saw him
nt the lecture.
He tells why an attorney for tho de
fense copied Glazer's notes In full after
they hud been placed In the custody of the
property clerk of the police department.
He uncovers tho motive which Inspired
Durrant to plead with C. V. Cross and
asked him to remember that they talked
on the steps of Cooper college until they
were late for Dr. Cheney's lecture. Gra
ham comes Into the case as n witness of
the greatest possible importance to de
stroy the only possible alibi which Durrant
has attempted to prove.
For the tako of his friend araham has
held back the most Important part of his
knowledge of the case, but now ho tells it
all just s It occurred. Ill addition to that
lie repeats a conversation which ho hint
with Attorneys Dickinson and Deuprey a
few days ogo. Ilo has even Informed them
of tho Important confession which Dur
rani made to him. Durrant made his .In Hi
nging request of Graham, when the latter
visited him in Jail.

May Itclnrd the Cmnr.
Topeka, Kb., Oct. ("..-(Special.) The to
Hep authorities and temperance people Of
Topek.t iiro very much exercised over two
court decisions re ently made upon the
liquor law and prosecution growing out of
Its violation. The most serious one Is Hint
of the supreme court, which declares It to
be unconstitutional for a policeman to en
ter any placo without a warrant and arrest
a person for violation of the prohibition
law. The Mjce pretend to believe that
this decision give almost unbridled license
to the down-cellflr and up-gnrret Jnlnt-keci-em
to conduct their business. It does
not take very long for the otllcers to dis
cover a place where liquor Is being sold,
but without breaking Into the room and
catching the seller red handed lb Is ex
tremely dlllleult to determine who Is do
ing the i-elllng and get a warrant for him.
And this supremo court decision Is now
supplemented by n ruling from Judge Iln.
zen, of the Shawnee county district court,
Whleh the police believe Will make It even
more dlllleult to secure convictions. Judge
llazen Instructed the Jury In a lecent whis
ky case that but little reliance was to bo
placed on the testimony of "spotters," and
the Jury accepted this Instruction ns bind
ing by returning a verdict of acquittal In
side of live minutes. Of course Judge lla
zen did not tell the Jury they must not
believe the "spotters," but he Intimated so
strongly to them that It was unworthy of
belleT that they burned the bridge anil
disregarded entirely what tho "spotters"
had sworn to.
Mr. 1'. 1. Honebrake, of the Toieka
board of police commissioners, takes Issuo
with Judge llazen on this point In tho fol.
"We are but following the example of
the United States government, which
spends thousands of dollars annually in
the secret or detective service, In detect
ing counterfeiters and counterfeiting, Il
licit distilling and smuggling, crimes that
cannot be reached In any other way. Crim
inals are dally convicted of crimes all over
tho Fnlon on detective evidence. The laws
of the slate regulating the police depart
ments of the cities of the first class pro
vide expressly for detective service.
"I notice the lawyers have a line pini
on the Jury when they tell how honest,
good, wealthy, wise and moral men are
'Induced' to commit crimes by the low
down, dishonest detectives.
"The inducement that causes these good
men to fall Is tho chance to sell a 2."-cent
bottle of beer or a'.Vcent bottle of whisky.
We want to say, however, In this conilden
tlnl way, to gamblers, prostitutes and
whisky sellers, that they are liable at any
time to entertain an angel unawares."
INTRUDERS MUST GET OUT.
Tho Cherokeo Nation Will Iteglll to I'liy
Them Olt lo-ilny and Then They
Washington, Oct. G.-fSpcelal.) Chief
Harris, of the .Cherokee nation, is on
hand to look after some departmental
work In connection with the Intruder ques
tion. He will Inform tho department to
morrow that the nation will at once com
mence to pay oft the intruders according
to the appraisement of the commission.
There are over I,fj0 Intruders and the total
appraisement amounts to about $.0,ix .and
It Is estimated that the payment will lie
completed within a month. When this Is
done the nation will Insist that it has done
Its past In the matter of removing th- In
truders and will Insist that the governnieiit
force the intruders out of the nation short
ly after the iirst of next Jnnuary.
This Is according to legislation covering
that question, which was incorporated In
the Strip opening to settlement bill.
Harris Is very much dissatisfied over thu
way the administration has handled this
question. According to the original under
standing, as embraced in the law, the in
truders were to be removed last year.
Hut It happens that tin- Intruders havo
some friends close to tho administration
and they bine been using their pull. This
resulted In a provision being added to the
last general Indian bill, providing that the
government could not molest the Intrud
ers until after the first of next January.
Mr. Harris is not certain that the admls
tr.itlon will remove the Intruders even
after that date. This Is one of the things
he 13 here to look after.
Mr. Harris says he would not allow the
much talked about prize light to come off
In the Cherokee country. Should it be
booked for that country he would ask the
government to prevent It, In this way
Governor Mosely, of the Chickasaw nation,
can prevent It, It he so desires. He Is not
certain that the Fulled States would have
any business to prevent the light In any
one of the nations, provided the Indian
authorities were willing that the tight
could be pulled off In their country. Should
Mosely conclude that it is all rght
to havo the light In the Chickasaw nation,
and thus make no request to tho I'ulted
States for aid to prevent it, .Mr. Harris
thinks that the government would have no
right to Interfere.

was received here a few days ago by It. S.
Oberfnlder. It is the first nuthentli! and
reliable Information received from Cuban
soil In this part of the country. Watson
was formerly a prlvato In tho Twenty-llrst
t'nlted State? Infantry, stationed ut Fort

".My Dear Sir: I got my commission nt
Tampa, Fin., on March 1, 1&95, for a cap
taincy In the Cuban iiruiy at JleO per month,

cx-llnlted States cavalrymen and n very
smart German, who graduated at lyelpsle,
Germany, in chemistry, and Is an expert
In making nil kinds of explosives. We
started from Tnmp.i, Fla., oti a small
steamer on March 12, nd landed without
any trouble near Santiago do Cuba.
"Now, I will describe the soldiers that
wero sent from Spain. They are ti young
lot of boys, who are not iicclimated and
are dying like sheep. They have little bed
ding and a small rubber cape to cover their
shoulders, and nil are armed with the
Mnnsur rllles and machetes.
"My commission gives me the privilege
to forage on the enemy and destroy lilt
property belonging to the sympathizers of
the government. Slnco my arrival here my
company has been lu several engagements.
I sent out a scouting party In Charge of
Lieutenant Hamilton, a former private In
the Seventh Fulled States cavalry. He
returned in two hour", reporting that he
came across twenty-two Spanish soldiers
In camp .eating dinner and with no guards

them and In ten minutes after our arrival
captured one olllcer. thirteen men and

soon there was a tush forward by those
willing to lend usslstance to the crushed

brought about by Pinkerton Detective John
It. Savllle, who hns been working on the

where they uncsicil him. 1'iirdeii admitted
to Marshal Fn-y that ho had taken the
money, and said he was willing to return

A FRANK CONFESSION.
I.nndon "Cr.'ipllle" SaH Hrltlsli Conceit Is
Helng Kuplilly eliminated l.y He
cent sporting I'.ient-,
London, Oct. 7. The Graphic says this
morning of the Y.ile-C.imbrldge contest at
New York Saturday: "America has taken
the conceit out of us in a way unequalled
since Australia beat Kngland at the oval
In ls92, and It may, perhaps, be a long time
before we recover from tho shock. As a
Iirst step towards accepting defeat grace
fully, we might, perhnps, cease to talk so
much about the dllleivuc-s or climate as a
coiitrlbutaiy cause to our defeat. When the
team came over and were beaten by ox
ford they had to compete under conditions
of cold nnd damp quite as foreign to their
experience ns the lieu of New Vork has
been to the KngUshmen. We did not urge
the disadvantages which Yale had suffered
in diminution of their ttlumph and It is not
quite game to enlarge upon similar causes
in mitigation of our defeat."
The Dally News says: Though not so
overwhelmingly (is when the London Ath
letic Cluli was beaten by the New Vuil:
Athletic Club, the defeat was bad enougii.
Winning or losing, however. It is a .small
consideration compared with the good
t(W.al riihiilpt brought about by these
friendly rlvalrys beliveen the old and New
Worlds. Our athletic Invasion has t--sulted
In a heavy blow to our self-esteem:
lint the tables may be turned If the Ameri
cans send over a team next year. Cllin.it
accounts for a deal In these matters, and
other things being at all equal, tin- ad
vantage must always be with the home
train. Admitting this, however, the fact
remains that the Americans are just now
Tho Standard says: The victory was
most decisive und In view of the fact that
except for Fltzherbet the Cantabs per
formed ns well as they have generally done
at home, one is driven to the conclusion
that Okford was somewha.t lucky 10 beat
Yale or decidedly unlucky In subsequently
losing to Cambridge. It is Impossible to
shut one's eyes to the fact that at the
present time America is peculiarly rich lu
i.ipable athletes of all kinds: and though
we may hope that at the next lmiurtatu
meeting tho englishmen will assert their
supremacy over their rivals, or ut nil
events come out on an equality, It would
be churlish to refuse the trunk anil curdl.il
acknowledgment which the r mt achieve
ments ot their American opponents mi rlt.
