night, was finally decided in favor of the
defendant. City Attorney W. E. Hen
dricks strove hard to convict Gladney, but
it seems that the defense Messrs. Mulkey
and Leek had the better side of the case
and gained it. There is still another case
pending against Gladney, which will prob

Marshal Myers receivod a dispatch
from Officer J. M. Sidgway, of Martin,
Tenn , a place about fifty miles belqw hero,
asking him to look out lor and arrest two
men, named respectively John Barbee
and Charles Clemens, who are
charged with killing one John Price Jr., in
Martin, a few days ago. Officer llidgway
makes the same error that most other
officers of small towns do. He fails to give
any discription of tho fugitive men ; but
is content with stating their crime and
their names, neither of which are worth
shucks to an officer not acquainted with the
appearance of the men ho is to track.

Two gentlemen, owners of fast horses,
have been in the habit of testing their

guilty of thisoffenso for somo time,
and though efforts were uiado by tho offl
ccrs to work up a case against them, these
efforts have, bo far, proved tutile. On
Monday evening tho offenso was again re
peatod both men racing down Commercial
avenue at a dangerous rate. They are test
ing tho patience of the officers severely and
the necessary ovidence against them is bo'
ing sought after, which, when obtained,
will call for a law suit and a fine.
-Yesterday foronoon Mr, James Law,
one of tho watchmen on tho Halliday &

improperly blocked, and when Mr.

of course, discharged. In spite of the fact
that under the new state law witnesses

officers scoin to find it as difficult as ever to

would find the running down of this pesti
ferous gang a much easier undertaking.

DEATH OF THE PRESIDENT.
I'll B BKqUKI. TO TUB BLACKEST DEED, BUT
ONK.IS AT HAND.
It is with feelings of sincere regret that
fiiK Bulletin this morning confirms the
rumor of tho president's final demiso, given
i) yesterday's issue. The rumor that a dis
patch passed over tho wires to St. Louis at
1 1 ;()() Monday night, stating that tho presi
lent had breathed his last, proved only toi
truo yesterday morning, when a dispatch
irnved here saying that the sad event oc
uurred at 10 :U3 the night before. It h
needless to say that, though prepared for
this turn in the president's enso, every man
ind woman was yet shocked at the news
tnd many wero the exclamations rtf regret
that wero indulged in by pedestrians.
ISusinm men stood in thoir doors in
sort of stupor hardly paying civil attention
lo their customers, and these also expressed
plainly in their faces the disturbed feelings
within. All the forenoon dry goods men
were kept busy in selling black and white
draperies, which wero used in decorating
business houses and pnvato residences
vithout number. A large number of flags
were raised at half-mast the custom house
;uid tho Hancock and English poles being
the first to waft over the houso tops of the
city, by this mute, but painfully expressive
sign, the sorrowful news of the death ol
tho country's chief executive. Other flags
soon appeared on other poles, on house
topa and from tho mourning windows ol
residences. Limp and motioulcss hung
these signals of tho city's grief, as though
ven the elements shared in tho sacred sor
row and ventured not to disturb the unusu-
d silence which prevailed everywhere
Soon tho doleful tolling of a bell broke in
ipon the universal stillness it was the
ell of ono ot our lire company's, ami soon
:very bell in the city, church bells and all.
Ijoined in a general death knell, which ex
pressed more strongly than words could do

womanlv bosom in the city was filled

proof of sincere internal grief. Thus
while the strangely quiet aud black dra-
peried streets were silent evidences, the toll
ing bells spoke in unmistakable and power
t'ul tones, of the feelings of an entire com
munity bowed down with Borrow. It is need
ess to say that tho day will stand forth
prominently as the gloomiest this city had
ever seen and will be marked in tho mem-
jry ot all now living, both young and old
is fraught with an interest that is as decplj
painful as the crime to which it was a siue'
was dark and infamous.
Yesterday's dispatches announcing tbJ
trcsident s deatti were not very
full in their discriptioni of the circum
stances of the last moments of tbr presi
lent's existence as they might hive been :P
but the hows and whys, sunk in'o utter in-fc
ligniticance in the presence of the startling
fact that the end had at l ist comes and the
people, who had been watching closely and
inxiously every slight change in the pa
tient's condition, were too much aborbed in
the all important announcement of the
incident's death, to inquire for the niinoi
mrticulars except on second thought.
The following are the dispatches of yes
DEATH OK THE PRESIDENT.

TIIK rilESIDKNT's LAST WOIUW.
Previous to ills death tho only words
(spoken by tho president wore that ho had a
kovero pain in his hoart. It is supposed by
tho surgeons that death was occasioned by
a clot of blood forming in the hoart. Bliss
wastho first ono notified of the president's
expression of pain, and upon entering th
room ho at onco saw the end was near.
Members of the family wore immediately
summoned to tho bedside. All around and
perfect quiet prevailed. Mrs. Garfield bore
the trying ordeal with great fortitude,
and exhibited unprecedented courage. , She
.rave way to no paroxysms of grief, and
tfter death became evideut she quietly
withdrew to her own room. There she sat,
i heart-stricken widow full of grief, but
with too much courage to exhibit it to
those about her. She was laboring under
a terrible strain, and, despite her efforts,
tears flowed from her eyes, and her lips be-
ame drawn by her noble attempt to bear
the burden with which she had been
iffiictcd. Miss Mollio was greatly affected
tnd bursts of tears flowed from the child's
jyc9, notwithstanding her noble, efforts to
'ollow the example of her mother.
THE DEATH SCENE
was one never to be forgotten; perfect quiet
prevailed, and there was not a murmur
heard whilo the president was sinking.
After death had been pronounced the liody"
was properly arranged by Dr. S. A. Iloyn-
ton. Telegrams were immediately sent to
the president's mother in Ohio, and to his
.ons Harry and James, who nre now at
Williams college, as also to Vice President
Arthur and other prominent public men.
Mr. Morris, the undertaker of the village,
will be in charge of the remains. Eugene
Britton, coroner of Monmouth county, will
bold an inquest over the body of the Utc
president. He has yet made no arrange
ments for the inquest, and as far as can be
iscertained he has not -been notified of the
County court met in the couuty clerk's
office on Monday afternoon, with Judge
Yocum on the lench. Mont of the busi
ness transacted was probate business and
not of much importance. Two persons
were examined and adjudged insane, one of
them was a son of Mr. Malinski.
Tho seven cases against Mns. Maiiy
Walkkii, for selling liquor contrary to law,
which States Attorney James M. Damron
was to have prosecuted m the court of
Esquire O. A. Os!om on Monday, were all
lismissed, because the puobecution did
sot put in an appkakance. If Mr. Dam
ron believed that he was doing his duty
when ho undertook to conduct this prose
cution if ho only believed that he wag not
conducting a malicious prosecution in this
:ose, why did ho so disgracefully abandon
it? And if hodid know that the Walker
prosecution was a disgraceful persecution,
why did ho not dismiss it at once and at
tend to tho prosecution of the negro mur-
lerer Hays? These are points upon which
fHE Bulletin and the "honest thinking
class ol the . county' would Iiko to
be informed, and which Mr. Damron
in view of bis protestations
f honesty of purpose in the performance of
lis official duties cannot well ignore.
