A Bltoody Feud in Kentucky.
LrxiNoros, Ky., June 22.-Informa
tion has been received by the Transcript3
of another battle in Rowan county,
which occurred this morning at 9 o'clock.
In this fight Craig Tolliver, the despera
do who lorded it over that sectioni, was
killed. It is said that a large party of
men, ostensibly led by Dr. Logan, whose I
two sons were murdered in cold blood:
by the Tolliver men about two weeks
ago, and who was in jail in this city at'
the time of the tragedy, had organized a
band of regulators for the purpose of I
ridding the county of the desperadoes.
The rumors of this band being in the <
neighborhood of Morehead have beeni
frequent. This morning, a little after I
nine o'clock, the regulators being con
eealedl in close proximity to Morehead,
opened fire on Tolliver and some of his I
gang who were on the streets. Tolliver i
was killed in the engagement, and the
fight assumed a bushwhacking character,
men hiding behind houses and trees and
shooting at any one that could be seen.
Reports differ as to the number killed;
one placing the number at five, includ
ing Tolliver. and another stating that
Craig Tolliver, two of his brothers and
thirteen others had been killed. There
is great confusion in the telegraphic re
1 orts coming, and accurate news is out
of the question.

THE GRAND JURY at Denver, Colorado,
has recently found indictments against
the sheriff and four of his deputies for
malfeasance in office. The charges upon
which the indictments are based show a
systematic scheme of plunder that re
minds us of the Tweed methods in New
York. Bills for services never rendered,
bills fictitious in nature, illegal in char
acter and false as to fact were presented
to the County Commissioners, sworn to
by the sheriff or his deputies and paid'
out of the county treasury. Bills for
guards who never guarded anything and
never got a cent of money were present
ed and paid by the Commaissioners. Bills
for service as bailiffs in court when no
court was in session anid bills for a hun
dred other things for which no service
was rendered seem to have been sworn
to, presented and collected by these in
dicted officials. It is evident that the
