McArthur and J. D. Russeflhd a dif
ficulty at 2 o'clock this afternoon, at
the Bluegrass saloon and billiard hall.
Russell was shot and killed by McAr
thur, who runsa restaurant here. Rus
sell is in the wholesale liquor bus
iness in this town. McArthur, It is
claimed, shot Russell in self-defense.
Russell shot McArthur tirst, Inlicting
a serious wouad, whereupon McArthur
grasped the pistol and wrechbed it
from his grasp and shot him through
the cheek, and once in the stomach.
causing almost instant death. Russell
i6 still lying in the saloon where he was
shot. The physicians did all in their
power to save his life, but with no
avall. Oilcer Ed. Creeley, psomptAy
arrested KeArthur and locked him up
in jail to await the action of the coro
ner's jury. While being con
veyed to the lock-un, he bled
from the wound in the scalp
profusely. Russell has a wife here, and
was well liked by all. Opinion is
divided In regard to the cause of the
quarrel. A good many say that Me
Arthur ,ould not have been unarmed,
as he habitually carries a revolver.
There were only two witneses, Coun
nesey, the owner of the Bluegrass
saloon, and a Chinaman were present
during the trouble, and both are very
retlceet. The trouble seems to have
originated over a dog fight, and some
claim that It was also caused by some
sauir in settling up an old business
accouut. Neither report can be relled
upon this early in the afternoon.
LATsR--8:80 P. x.-Coroner Hersey
about four empanneled a jury, who
after viewing the remains and hearing
all the evidence, found a true bill of
murder in the firt degree against Jas.
MeArthur, and he was taken in cue,
tody by the ofcer and will be sent to
Miles City at once. One of the jury
says that the evidence shows that
Russell had no arms, but that he began
the light by striking McArthur. There
is a very strong ell ng Splat Mo
Arthur, many threats being made, and
it is barely probable that the excite,
ment may run to such a pitch that the
murderer will be lynched.
