Halrd, January 1. Tho terrible
tragedy at Colt on Springs In this
county Thursday last resulted in a
double homloido. Tom Jones and
Geo. T Franks wore friends. Franks
became Involved in a dllHculty with
another man Jones interfered and
took Frank's pistol from him
ami drew tho cartridges, Franks in
sisted on tho returning of tho pistol
and told Jones It lie did not rechargo
and return It ho would kill him.
I ones refused and Franks went awnv
and tcturncd with double-ban eletl
gun and repented tho demand. Jones,
Who had in tho meantime charged the
pistol, drew It and llrcd, Franks tiring
at tho same time. .Tonea was instantly
killed; Franks died In an hour.
Halrd Is on the anxious bench as to
tho result of tho approaching election

Perhaps (ho most nmustng reception
ever accorded to malty in tho United
Htrtra nt least the one most In conso
nance with American traditions was
that experienced by William IV., who,
In his youth, was n gay tar. Vhile in
the harbor or New York tho young
Bailor caught a glimpse of n vcrv
pretty woman, from whom ho stole 'a
kiss, with the remark, "Tell your hus
band, when ho comes home, that vou
were kissed by tho son of a king."
Unluckily for tho principal, who was
a vary good fellow, by the way, the
beauty's lord and master had arrived
at tho erlt teal stage of tho adventure;
ami. being a very mtisoular as well n
plucky Individual, he took the future
William I V, by tho shoulders, n.n him
out or his house, emphasizing tho ac
tion by planting his boot In tho royal
seat of honor, and remarked, "Vou
cah tell them, when you go homo,
I hat you have been kicked by the son
of it tailor." That Is tho kind of a
spirit we shonld like to see assert itself
In this country, combined with per
fect courtesy to vlltors of all ranks.

agreed to postpone his resignation as a

will oppose and harass the govern

In the organization in Ireland

COMMENTS ON GAMETTA.
ondon, January 1. The Pall Mall
r(tr tills evening says it is thought
death of Gambettti will hroiik- nn
the republic. It will have minor ef
fects of great iniportanee.f hough far too
serious to be other than a convinced
partisan of the public. Gambctta has
always been susceptible of the
forco or the French traditions. He
thought himself now tho Mazarln
or Richelieu. Liberalism all over
Europe will deplore tho loss of so
great and remarkable a figure
of a statesman who used his truly
Tortile mind for n noble cause, and will
live in French history among tho most
coura-'eoiis. acute and most ai!tliv
founders ofthercpubllei'he measure or
inn toss is oi secret or or avowed satis
faction of which it will bo held by the
reactionists and enemies of free gov
ernment all over Europe.
Dorscy's Tin-Hncd Cedar Chest.
Ex-Senator Dorsey's ccdnr chest
promises to bring disaster aud ruin to
in many Republican leaders as Oakes
Ames' fatal memorandum book. In
It he has preserved the letters written
to him during the political campaign
of 1880, In which lie was one of the
lender nil those confidential letlets
wherein his brother ltcpublicans ex
pressed their profound love for him,
applauding the course he -was pursu
ing in his Indiana campaign, and
encouraged him to new villainies.
The dangers of political letter wri
ting and the advantages of a cedar
chest are again illustrated In nil mu.
Men like Horsey, who preserve theso

aud dangerous. It was by this means
that Senator "Windom nearly reached
