.Saved Croat Incitement.
Dallas, May 25. Excitement Iisb
never ran higher in Dallas than it did
last night following the killing at the
union depot by Henry Miller, a negro
saloon porter, of Officer C. O. Brewer,
of the polico force, whose record was
one of tho most distinguished of any
officer that over was in the service of
tho city of Dallas. The circumstances
of the killing, as gleaned by repurtors
from eye-witnesses and officials were
as follows: A scandal in whioh Miller
figured and in whioh the fair name of
a respeotsblo whito woman was sought
to bo smeared, is under investigation
by tho eourts. In this case it is charg
ed that Henry Miller circulated a re
port derogatory to her good name.
Offioors Brandenburg and Browor were
detailed last evening to arrest Miller
for tho purpose of get
ting his denial and evi
dence in the case. lie wai found and
arrested at tho union depot in front of
Alderman Laoy's saloon by Officers
Brandenburg and Brcwor, and Officor
Beard, who was on duty there, entered
the saloon to telephone to police head
quarters for tho patrol wagon in which
to convey the prisoner to tho station
house. At this moment Miller turned
to Officer Brandenburg and asked:
"Will you let me give bond?" to
whioh the offioor answered: "I do not
know what tho charges again3t you
are." "Then, dam you," responded
Millor, "I'll give you bond,', saying
which ho drew a 1-1-calibor pistol and
fired, the ball going wide of rhe mark,
but hitting .1 horse that was lieu to a
post oloso by. Tho negro thon ran
and fired again, it was supposed by
Mr. Brandenburg at him. Rapid firing
followed and poor Brewer, who was
in closo pursuit of the negro, fell about
Bcvcnty feet from tho point whero
tho shooting commenced. Jacob
Bahrr ran up to the wounded officer,
who lay on his back, and, with others,
proceeded to piok him up, no observ
ing as they did so. "Boys, help mo
all you can; carry me easy to die. My
poor wife and babies." He was taken
to Johnson's old drug store, where ho
oxpired half an hour later, his wife
aud ohildren having arrived fivo min
utes before ho oxpired and after ho
had grown unconscious.
Officer Brewer was shot in tho loft
side. Tho ball passed through and
lodged in the right side.
After the wounded officor fell Mil
ler, pursued by Offioers Branderburg
and Board, ran up Elm street, ex
changing shots as ho flew with tho
pu-suing officers, of whom ho was
gaining with a fair prospoot of gett
ing away, when tho chief and assistant
ohiet of 'the firo department came
along in a buggy. The chief, taking
in tho situation, jumped out of the
buggy and Officer Board jumped into
it. With AssistantChief Myers driving,
tho officor soon ovortook Millor and
arrested him. lie was transferred to
tho patrol wagon, which had promptly
responded to tho call over tho tele
phono and was soon within tho bars of
tho city prison. A few minutes latar
