-while J. L. Isenberg, editor of the Dally
Wave, is badly -wounded, the result of a
sensational street fight that occurred here
this eveniug. Iscnberg -will recover.
The cause of the tragedy was a criti
cism -written by Isenberg in his paper.
The objectionable article appeared in.this
afternoon's paper, and no sooner had Pat
terson read it than he started on a search
for tho editor.
The men met on the main streeC at 7
o'clock in the evening, a prelude of angry
words "was almost immediately followed
by blows. Several passes were made,
when Patterson flashed a revolver and
began snooting at his alleged slanderer.
Several shots were fired before Isenberg
could seek cover, one ball taking effect
at the outer edge of the left eye, and pro
ducing a painful wound.
In the midst of ttie fracas Marshal Will
iams appeared upon the scene. Patterson
turned his gun upon him. Tho first shot
caught Williams in the right breast, pass
ing clear through his lungs.
Before Williams dropied he whipped out
his revolver and managed to fire at his
would-be murderer, the bullet hitting Pat
terson in the forehead and killing him in
stantly. Williams died within an hour.
Editor Isenberg in the meantime had him
self found treatment, and at a late hour
was resting easy.
Patterson's body was removed to the
morgue, where it rests near that of Wil

Lawyer Blair Lee Says It Would Be

Powell Highly Commend It All
Classes Agree as to Its Merits.
The principal topic in legal circles yes
terday was The Times Bureau of Legal
Advice. Everyone who has had any ex
perience in the practical workings of the
law knows how badly such an institution
is needed. Almost all of those who are
members of or are connected with the
District bar had the new enterprise in
tbctr thoughts and on their lips yesterday
and every one, from the "leading lights
or the profession to the humblest lawyer's
clerk, had a word of praise to utter, and
took the opportunity to state what a
void the bureau would fill.
The interest taken In the affair was
not confined to the lawyers, but preachers,
professors, mchants, manufacturers, and
mechanics of the city were unanimous in
declaring the bureau of legal advice a most
MAJOR POWELL WISHES SUCCESS.
Commissioner Powell said to a Times
reporter that he had read with a great
deal of interest an account of the establish

Epokcatsoine length onthegreat possibilities
for doing good and for correcting evils
which it would afford.
Among other things he said:
"That scheme is first rate, a most worthy
charity. It has been needed in this city for
some time. In my experience I have seen
many instances where such an institution
would have been of sen-ice to oppressed
families. You must have skillful, well
educated lawyers if you want to be suc
cessful, for almost as many cases are lost
through the incompetency of attorneys as
through the failure to secure any legal ad
viser. I wish you the success you deserve."
Commissioner Ross: "There can be no
doubt that many poor people are not able
to pay Tor legal advice and it is, indeed, a
commendable charity that gives them this."
Blair Lee, lawyer: "If you found and
maintain any system by which Ignorant
and poor people can be protected in their
rights, you will have made one of the most
marked advances of modern times. I
sincerely hope that you will succeed."

very humanitarian and praise-worthy
scheme for the benefit of the people. It
will help those who might otherwise lose
Conrad. II. Symc, lawyer: "I think
that this movement which aims to protect
-the rights and to redress the wrongs of
the defenseless and powerless should re

who believe in equal and exact justice to
ex'eryone irrespective.of.race, color, or con
dition." Bnshrod Robinson, member of the firm
of llobinson, Chery & Company: "I think
it a splendid institution and I feel that
It will be the means of protecting many
worthy people. I heartily approve of it."
S. W. Woodward, member of the firm of
Woodward & Lotbrop: "It is vwy pro
gressive and ought to be successful. It
will prove a great boon to the poor people.
I hope that a sufficient meritorious case
will be soon secured so that the bureau
may obtain a standing right away."

The free-silver men were beaten yes

in the selection of Judge W. M. Beckner
for temporary chairman and Congressman
A. S. Berry for permanent chairman,
and in the organization of the committee
on resolutions, as well as in the organi

To-day they went down under the adop
tion of the minority report of credentials,
seating Clay's; "sound money" delegates,
as well as under the adoption of the
majority report on resolutions for sound
money and the indorsement of President
Cleveland and Secretary Carlisle.
The committee on credentials is one
that "tho sound money" did not look
after, and the silver men had a majonty
on it, but the convention overruled that
majority by adopt in"- the minority re
port. Senator Blackburn and other silver lead
ers remained on the floor of the convention
and fought to the last on the resolutions
after which they, did not take much in

previously deserted them. They were
very bitter towards Auditor of State
Norman, who w as General Hardin's man
ager and himself a candidate for re
nomination. In Senator Blackburn's speech against
the majority report on resolutions he
showed his feelirg toward some on whom
he had depended while he referred very
respectfully to Senator Lindsay, Congress
man McCrcary and others who had op
posed him openly. The convention wis
a record-breaker in great speeches as well
as iu otiier respects.
