Milwaukee, November 4. Fritz
Graven, a wealthy farmer of the town
of the town of Oak Creek, died yes
terday and his son August is held in
the county jail on the charge of mur
dering his father. The elder Graven
was 73 years old and his son 37. The
old man was found Friday in an un
conscious condition in a stable. His
skull was fractured and it was at first
supposed he had been kicked by a
cow. A close examination, nowever,
developed that the fracture had been
caused by some sharp instrument.
The old man never regained con
sciousness, and suspicion was so
strong against the son, and on a
complaint by other members of the
family he was arrested.

Chattanooga, Tenn., Nov. 5. In
formation has been received of a fatal
duel between two well known citizens
of Elmer county, Ala., at a point near
Good Hope. The men, Maj. John
Ray and W. T. Wilkerson, purchased
a large tract of land for speculative
purposes. Last week when the sur
veys were made a dispute arose as to
who should take possession of a por
tion of it. Blows followed but the
combatants weie separated. Friday
they met and began firing at each
other with pistols. Ray was shot in
the head and instantly killed. Wil
kerson was so badly hurt that he only
lived long enough to tell the story of
the shooting. Both were well known,
i Ray having been county treasurer.

Tacoma, W, T., Nov. 5. Sixteen
sailors of the ship Hecla, which arriv
ed yesterday loaded with wheat for
Great Britain, entered suit in the dis
trict court against Capt. Snow, ol
that vessel, for cruelty. They allege
that he started for Cardiff, Wales,
with a crew of sixteen men and after
she had been out but a short time
he began feeding them on rotten
meats, which were not fit to cat, and
both captain and mate shamefully
abused the sailors. While near Cape
Horn, Snow attacked the carpenter,
breaking his jaw and knocking out
many of his teeth. A few days latei
he nearly killed ono of his men, who,
debilitated by poor food, was unable
to work and at times was put in a hole
and tied up for forty-eight hours. One
of his men was tied on a staunchion
for four davs without food. During
this time his scant food was placed
within sight but out of reach. When
the Hecla reached Acapulcho, the
men were weak from ill treatment and
insufficient food. They were cast
into a dungeon and kept confined
until the vessel was ready to sail. The
men appealed to the United
States at Acapulcho, but were unable
to obtain any assistance from that
