George Insko Shot and Killed by
George Cooper, at the German-town
Fair, on Saturday.
COOPER ARRESTED AND LODGED IN MYSYILLE JAIL.
The Germantown fair after a asuccessful
exhibition closed on Saturday with a terrible,
tragedy. Between three and four
o'clock in the afternoon, John Insko, of
Bracken county, was shot and killed by Geo.
Cooper, a young farmer, who lives in
Bracken county, also, about two miles from
Germantown. The.affair occurred on the
promenade of the ampitheatre. Two shots
were fired one of which took effect in
Iusko's head and the oilier in one of
his hands, causing death about twenty
minutes later. Cooper was immediately
taken into custody by the fair ground police,
and was afterward delivered to Constable
Moran, who brought him to Mas-ville
the same evening and lodged him in
jail.? " ' i ' ,

xne particulars ot the trageuy as we
have been able to obtain them are about
as follows; Cooper; who is, twenty-four
years of age, is a cripple and weighs' bujt
one hundred and six pounds. He4ias'been
married dnly a"-few-weeks. On Friday, he
was at the fair with his wife and while
passing around the promenade the latter
was addressed by Insko, who it appears
was not acquainted' with Cooper, although
he had met his wife befor.e. The lady

called all kinds of vile names, tt is alleged
that Cooper did not resent them, but
passed on and edeavoredto aLypid a difficulty:
..They met several times during the
day aptd each time it is claimed Cooper was
cursed and abused 'by Inskso, but it is
alleged, made no effort to resent it.
The next day at the time named as

the difficulty was renewed, bu precisely
what occurred we have been unable to
learn. Cooper fired the fatal shot, and
was instantly felled by a blow from Wilson
Insko, George Insko's brother, who took
from him the weapon he had used.
It was at first determined 'to take Cooper
to Germantown, but as if was reported a
number of Insko's friends had collected
on the ' road, and would, probably do violence
to the prisoner, it was considered
prudent to bring him to this city,' which
was done as stated? Both men: at the time
the affair occurred were considerably under
the influence of liquor.

heard them, but.it.is ppssible tlie.muyi be

Cockerill was sitting at his desk when
Slayback entered, and the foreman of the
composing room, Victor, and the business
manager, John McGuffin, were also in the
room. From Mr. Cole the story of what
happened is learned. He says as Slayback
entered, he said: ''You are here, are you ?' '
Cockerill was evidently expecting trouble,
for,' according to Mr. Cole, his revolver
was lying on his desk. He made some
repjy to Col. Slayback, when the , latter
said : " Is that pistol for me ?" Cockerill
said : " It is for you if you want it, or
when yon want it."
At this Colonel Slayback pulled a pistol,
a self-cocker, and as he covered Cockerill,
McGuffin jumped forward and grabbed
the pistol just as the hammer fell, catching
the hammer between the thumb and forefinger,
thus preventingthe pistol going off.
At the same instant Cockerill grabbed his
pistol and fired as he rose. The, ball struck
Slayback in the left breast, and he fell,
dying almost instantly.
There was a great" commotion, and a
rush was made for the room where the
tragedy occurred. When outsiders reached
the room they found Slayback on the
floor, dead, and, Cockerill knelling beside
him wiping the blood from his face.

Providence, however, would intervence
and he would go on increasing in years, in
the estimation of his fellowm.ui and in
worldly goods, until the year 1SS2, which,
when it cast aside its summer dress and
donned the garb to meet the touch of winter,
there would befall him a calamity
which, even with his knowledge of the
stars, it was impossible to foretell the
issue. If the same hand of Providence in
tervened, his would be a long and useful
life; but the obscurity was too great the
ending could not be told.
" Years rolled on, until the month of
May, 1SS2, the same young man while a
passenger on the Eebstock, from St. Jos
eph to rsatchez, had the horoscope ot his
lifo, as told by the old man, brought forcibly
to mind by the danger of a violent
storm in which the boat was caught. Danger
number one was passed safely, and
there now remained but the one other
event, which would prove the truth or falsity
of the teacings of the stars.
