Ahkalon, Kan., Jau. 8. Bloodshed
arising from the long continued trouble
in southwestern Kansas has not yet
ended. Deputy sheriffs have partially
avenged sheriff Dunn. It is not known
to be a positive fact, but it seems more
than likely that as a. result of the at
tempt of the deputies to bring the slayers
of the sheriff to justice and force expia
tion of the murderers. Four outlaws
were killed Thursday afternoon. Re
ports, however, need continuation. A
courier arrived here at noon from
he south line of the state. lie reports a
running conflict between the ileeing des
paradoes and an armed posse of pursuers.
According to the report there were two
wagons loaded with fifteen of
the men participating in tho
canyon battle. They have
been encamped in a gulch' south of
Springfield, where they were discovered.
They saw their pursuers about the same
moment and then commenced a life and
death race. For ten miles the two par
ties were not within firing distance, but
just before dusk the pursuing party
came within less than a quarter of a
mile of the desperadoes and then firing
commenced. A running fight was kept
up for a distance of four miles. Follow
ing one fusilade four men were seen to
tumble from their seats in the wagons.
It was not ascertained whether they
were killed or wounded. Tlie pursuing
party finding that their jaded horses
would not carry them any further made
a detour of some half a mile to a ranch,
where they procured fresh horses, and
the race was resumed. A courier started
back from that point. He said that the
pursuing party, numbering fourteen,
would follow tire desperadoes into No
Man's Land if necessary and bring them
back dead or alive. Another courier is
hourly expected aud with him news of
the battle in which one side or the other
will have sustained serious loss of life.

London, Jan 8. The Russian monthly
European Massenger contains such
alarming accounts of the famine in Rus
sia that it is astonishing how tho pajier
succeeded in pawing the Russian press
censorship. The Messenger compares
the present famine in Russia with that
of Ireland in 18t(i and contrasts tho
measures adopted by the governments to
alleviate the distress of tho people. It
says that nobody in Russia over im
agined that her economic condition was
so wretched. Now that tho state of
affairs have been revealed only a mad
man would plunge tho country into war
or foreign complications for years to
come. The Messenger ridicules the stories
of Russian oppression of slaves. It de
clares they are in much better condition
than the Russian peasants. The charges
of frauds by the Germans and .lows, it
says, are totally without foundation.
