A 8IXOTLA11 MARRIAOE AS AO ED MAS FROM
MISSISSIPPI MARRIES HIS YOUTHFUL
DAl'OIITER-IS-LAW THE CEREMONY PER
FORMED AT THE ST. CHARLES HOTEL.
Ever since tho beloved ami ingenuous sire
of our race, was beguiled into eating that ill
fated apple, woman has contrived, in one
way or another, to lift man to the pinnacle
of happiness or to plunge him into the
depths of gloom. Tho few instances in
which these extremes have been escaped are
very rare and prove the correctnessof the rule.
In this case, we are happy to say, the man has
mounted tho apex of bliss, and realized the
dreams that have been a part of his exist
ence since thu death of his lamented son.
Mr. Alfred Boyco is, as stated in his mar
riage license, sixty-throe years old, al
though judged by the standard of looks a
half-score more years could be added to his
age without doing him injustice, lie
stands six foot two or three in his polished
boots, is erect in figure, clean shaven, with
"one . auspicious and one dropping eye;"
teeth that seem on the verge of disappear
ing into their sockets and a nose as sharp
as a pen and babbling of green ilelds.
Into this presence Justice Comings and a
Bulletin reporter were ushered by mine
host Agnew, of die St. Charles, yesterday
atternoon. Seated by a window of the
parlor sat the other actor in this singular
life-drama. A young woman, looking the
age set down to her in tho license twenty
three; she was plainly but neatly appareled
in black, a slight red bow fastened at her
throat, and dark-colored kid gloves drawn
tightly over her shapely hands. The gal
lant old lover, in the introductions which
followed, explained that the lady had not
lwen quite well for some time, although she
appeared at that momenta picture of health
and contentment. Site is of slight figure,
which her close-fitting dress sets off to good
advantage; her hair is a shade of red im
possible for one ignorant in colors to de
scribe; it was not of a cardinal hue, nor
yet if that vulgar or common tint slangily
described as "brick-top." It flashed
out gorgeously under the rays of
light streaming in through the win
dow at which she sat, and
as we gazed upon her aged, but ardent ad
mirer, we were irresistibly reminded of the
'beauty that draws us with a single hair."
Her nose is of the delicious pug type tip
tilted like the petals of a flower and gave
to her handsome features a roguish and
saucy expression. Upon learning who
Justice Comings was she rose from her seat
ami walked to the side of tin; standing
groom. The ceremony was at once per
formed, and the old man said: "Gentlemen,
I could not nmrry under the laws of Mis
sisipppi, ami so I have left home ami
come hero to make this lady my wife."
Mrs. Josephine Boyco whom ho married
yesterday was the widow of his son.
Such a marriage is prohibited
by the laws of Mississippi, and after cor
resjsmdiug with our Secretary of State he
learned that in Illinois there would be no
obstacle to the accomplishment of his pur
poie. So lie came, and Mr. Comings filled
his heart with great rejoicing. Mrs. B.
seemed perfectly at ease, and took the cere
mony as a matter of course. Just as she
was budding into a glorious womanhood
she met tho son of her present husband,
fell in love with him, her love was recipro
cated, and they were married. Hers was a
"A love that took an early root
And had an early doom."
He died. In her loneliness she sought
the sympathy of her father-in-law. She
got it. A tender feeling was aroused in his
bosom. He pittied her forlorn state.
And as pity swells the tide of lore, lie
soon found himself irrevocably gone.
He did not fight this passion. On the con
trary he nursed it and set alxnit cultivating
a reciprocal sentiment in his lamented son's
widow. With what success the scene at the
St. Charles yesterday plainly tells. Tho old
man will not return to his homo to perma
nently reside. He is rich, has leased two of
his plantations and disposed of other prop
erty which secures for him nn income by
which ho nnd his bride will retire from the
public haunts of man and seek some seclud
ed spot where they will find
"Hooka In the runuiun brook, acrmons In ctonon,
And good In everything."
Tho devoted pair have The Bulletin's
blessing. May they live long, fulfill tho
scriptural injunction, and die happy.

most reliable remedy for tho relief of their
discomfort is Dr. Bull's Baby Syrup. Only

The defection of those colored men
who will no longer wear the yoke of party
slavery, or submit to the tyranny and in
justice of party leaders, has created great
consternation among Republicans. The

former condition of political thraldom, but
their efforts so far have not been successful.

There is no use in reforming matters by

of our own. We want our share of the
good things in this life, and are like the
boys who marched in the striker's proces

When a Republican reporter went to ob
tain Mayor Bowman's version of the allair.he
found that dignitary seated in his private
office, oppose the market-house. MiiTotmded
by several of his friends. Although two
hours had passed since the shooting, he was
still considerably excited, and he was un
sparing in his denunciation of what he re
garded as the greatest outrage yet perpe
trated by a body of men whose very organ
ization he considered an outrage on the
community. In reply to thy reporter's re
quest that he state the occurences in detail,
as he remembered them, he said he would
try to do so, but allowance must be made
tor the necessarily confused state of mind
of a man into whose office window sixteen
rifle balls had been fired with murderous
"We expected," said Mr. Bowman, "an
attack on the market-house, but not in that
way. All good citizens agree in condemn
ing it as a wanton nnd murderous piece of
business. You see, it was alsait half-past
3 o'clock, p. m. and I was standing in the
mayor's office on the second flour of the
market-house. Lukellite, who is ono of
my counsel, was in the off.ee with me,
having just returned from Belleville, where
lie had gone in compliance with a notice
from the Illinois and St. Louis railroad
company that they would apply for an in
junction restraining us from interfering
with the laying of the track, which occa
sioned the trouole this morning. By the
way, Mr. I lite has received notice that a
like application will be made to-morrow,
ami he will have to go there. Well, I was
engaged in writing a brief history of that
milroad matter for one of the reporters,
when we heard several shots
lired, up at Joyce's corner.
Mr. Ilite and myself ran to the south
window, and we could see the shooting go
ing on over two hundred yards south of the
market house, and over a hundred and fifty
yards south of the metropolitan station.
Thinking it a street fight, I sent word down
stairs for two deputy marshals to no down
and quell the disturbance, Mike Walsh, the
marshal, being sick with a congestive chill.
After sending this order. I turned again to
sit down at my desk. As I did so I heard
Hite suddenly exclaim, "Don't shoot, you
!" und looking out the
window near my desk, I saw a gun pointed
out of a window at the metroMilitan station
toward my office. It was just in the
act of being withdrawn, and Mr. Hite
said to me: "Did you arc how I made
that draw back his gun f
had iust sat down when the first
thing I knew a rifle bullet came in at the
window near me, and narrowly missed tho
lead fit Mr. Sullivan, who was in the room.
A moment later another bullet came in at
the same window, ami then several more,
till at last fifteen bullets had been fired in
at that one window, nearest my desk. Two
t them oassed through two partitions into
the library, one of them burying itself in a
pile of daily papers on fire there. When
the bullets began to whistle pretty thick,
and the plaster to fall, I need hardly say I
Of course I did not excise myself, but I
peeped out of the window and saw that the
shots were all coming front the metropolitan
headquarters. This murderous assault was
ntirely unprovoked, as not one shot was
tired from the market-house, nor was provo-
ationofany kind given. Of course peo
ple who were on the street hastened to get
into places of safety, und many had
ery narrow escapes. One lady
was shot through toe oress, unomer
who was walking along the sidewalk north
of the market-house, saw the dirt plowed
up by a bullet only a short distance from
her feet, and in fact the most utter reckless
ness characterized the fusilad". The shoot
ing was kept up for nearly an hour, there
being sometimes an interval of a moment
between shots, and sometimes several being
fired in quick succession. I think as many
as one hundred shots were fired altogether,
everyone of which came from the metro-
nolitans. It would lie dilticuit to conceive
of a more unprovoked assault. Alter u
few shots had been fired, as I said, every
body got out of tho way by getting into
loorwavs ami into stores, ami men inoso
fellows began to shoot at my horse. I keep
the antiiiulticd to a tree on the shudy side
of the market-house in the afternoon, and it
was in full view of them. They struck the
buggy once, and finally shot tho horse in
the flank. It began to rear and pitch nnd
try to get away, anil a young man named
Guclck, who is employed in JJcckers dry
goods store, railed out, 'some one untie
that horso ami take it away!' Ho am
acted on the suggestion, out one
or two replied, saying, 'You go,
Guclck, they know you and won't shoot at
you. N Mr. Guelck went over, untied the
horse, got into the buggy and went around
to Fourth street, intending to put tho horse
up at Mere' stable, which faces on Main
street, lust opposite the metropolitan head
uuarters, and runs back west to Fourth
street. Just as he got to the west end of the
gtable tho metropolitans gave him a volley,

jumped out of the buggy, and just then
either the horse or tho harness was
struck, and the animal broke away and ran
off. It ran right to tho front ol my private
office, where I keep it tied in tho morning,
and there tho buggy collided with a tele
graph isile, wrecking it. My horse is pretty
badly hurt. While the metropolitans were
shooting at Guelck right through the full
length of the livery stable, several shots wero
