Tho president's warning proclama

plaints against Spain's treatment of
Americans in Cuba, which con
tinually pour in upon the state
department.' Many of these havo
contained pleas of ignorance
of the laws under which tho suspects
were arrested and imprisoned, and it

CiM'CtNAll, July 111. Ceo. llitler,
who conducts a saloon at ISO") West
Sixth stieet, was the victim of a cold
blooded murder about 11 o'clock Thurs
AiiVMias the police could learn Illtz
ler blAvA good reputation and lie had
no enemies. Nothwithstanding these
facts he was shot down in cold blood.
The only witness to the tragedy was
his terro-'Stricken wife. The shooting
occurred in the saloon, but the victim
gamely pursued his assailant out into
the street with lour bullets in his
body. There were eight shots fired al
together. A few minutes past 11 o'clock Hit.ler
arose and looked at his watch. He
then said to his wife: "It's after 11
o'clock, and, as things are quiet, I
guess I'll close up. Sit here until I fill
the bottles and put up the shutters,
and we'll go upstaus.''
The saloon, keeper then walked leis
urely Into the barroom. He was just
about to turn around the counter of
the place when two men entered the
side dror mentione above. The two
men doubtless saw Hitler arise and
leave his w ife's presence, apd their ob
ject was to murder him and get what
few dollars thcie might be in tho cash
drawer in the barroom.
At any rate, the two men reached
the bar almoit as soon as Ilitzlcr did,
but they gae him enough time togeta
few feet ahead of them. The intrud
ers hid their faces by Improvised masks
madp of black handkerchiefs. One of
the handkerchiefs was dark and the
other was white. Just as Hitzlcr
turned to go behind the bar the intrud
ers opened fire on him. Not a word was
spoken by the two men. Mrs. Hitzler
heard the volley of shots and ran to
ward the saloon. When she got to the
hallway ono of the masked men dashed
out of the barroom and pushed her
aside. Tho fellow fled through the
rear yard to Fiont street. Mrs. Hitzler
screamed at the top of her voice and
ran into the saloon in time to see her
husband chasing one of the masked
men to tho street in front of the place.
The two men were firing at each other
ns theyran. Hitzler was already bleed
ing from a wound in tho neck, but
he gamely pursued Hie masked man to
During the short chase the fleeing
highwayman turned half way around
twice nnd fired a bullet into the body
of his pursuer.
When Hitzler got to the middle of
the street he sank down on the hard
granite blocks from exhaustion. He
had bled freely and was very weak.
His slayer ran over Sixth street to the
Big Four railroad yards. Mrs. Hitzler
ran out in the street and bent over her
husband, whose life was fastly flicker
"I'm gone, but I shot 'cm both," said
the game fellow, as he tried to smile at
his wife. The poor woman stooped
over sjOddsscd her husbnnd and then
bcgJjuJiiomc railroad men to carry the
wounded man into the house. Some
employes of tho liig Four yards cur
ried Hitzler into the sitting room. In
tho rear of the saloon, and he died a
few minutes later.
