with General Ilancock'a consent, all the civic
divisions of the funeral proterBion will
march only from the City Hall to Filty-ninth

Montickmd, !., August 1. A volley of
shots, apparently from a half dozen of guns,
aroused the (ole ol this town, early yes
terday mornirg. Those who were ont first
saw four masked men running In different
directions. In tho jail the dead body ot Jack
Hopkins was founj, shot lo pieces with
buck-shot. Several days ago Hopkins quar
reled with hit employer, George Gllmore, n
wealthy planter of this county. While (Ill
more was attending to his stork ho was struck
on tho hack of the head and fell Insensible to
the ground, when Hopkins fell upon him
with a knife. He was Interrupted in his
fiendish work, by half a dozen men whom
Hopkins succesffnlly resisted, cutting his way
through them with his bloody knife and
e caping lo the woods. A KiS6e of men with
dogs started in ''pursuit, keeping on the trail
until Tuesday morning, when Ihey overtcok
him in McDonough aud arrested him. He
was more like a wild nuimal than a mnn
On the way back he was tied hand and loot,
so determined wka he to attack his guards.
In the jill hern is a patent cell. In this
Hopkins was placed and left lor the night.
About twenty masked men rodo quietly up
to the edge ot the-town at 11 o'clock Thurf
day night. Four ol them wore detailed to
proceed to tho jail armed with double-bur-relecl
shot-guns. As they nppmarhed the
cell, which has otnlngs for ven Hating, the
Imprisoned wretch begged for mercy. The
fcur men, however, silent as death, placed
the muzzles of their guns at the openings and
filed, fairly filling the prisoner with shot.
Quickly reloadiog, they discharged their
guns again and turning upon their heels, re
joined their companions and rode away.

quarters yesterday and arranged lor a glove
contest between Sullivan and McCaffrey, to
take place at Chester J'ejk, Cincinnati, on
August ldih. The date was the one origi
nally agreed upon for Sullivan and Rian to
box, but Uy an tailed to connect. O'Hrien, in
discussing the merits ol modern pugilism with
"Parson" Divies today, claimed that thero
was no money lor McCaffrey with an) man
but Sullivan. The parson thereupon offered
to giie McCallrey $1,00(1 to meet Clenry lu
Chicago uuy time in the near luture. Mr
0 llrien accepted this proposition, and articles
were signed to that etlect,
McCaffrey said to n Philadelphia reporter
last night' "There will 1 no danger or this
match falling through. I mean business this
time, as I meant business before when I was
trying to get up a match with Sullivan. The
match will be made either for four rouuds or
to a finish, but I don't intend to stand up for
four rounds; I Intend to", knock Sullivan out
it I can. That's my ambition. I never said
1 could whip Sullivan, but I intend lo try."
McCafliey will go Into training immedi
ately, robably at Far Rockaway. The fight
will lie for the gate receipts, the winner to
take nil, and McCaffrey say's that if Sullivan
wishes to bet from $1,000 to $5,000 on the
result be can be accommodated.
