Mumfordsville, Ky., November 12.
The details of a shocking tragedy
have reached here from Rovvletts, a
little villiage several miles back in the
country. On Thursday afternoon
last, a party of young people went out
nutting. In the party were Henry
Rowe and Sallie Logsden. Young
Rowe and Miss Logsden have been
sweethearts for a long time. While
walking together young Rowe asked
Miss Logsden to name the day for
their wedding. She replied thn she
would do so when he had taken his
last drink of liquor. Rowe said that
he had done su and would prove it
then and there. He stepped off two
or three paces, pulled .1 revolver from
his pocket and before any one could
reach him sent a bullet through his
temple. Mis Logsdm fell to the
ground in a swoon and when she re
covered w.is a raving maniac. She
has been under medical care ever
since, but as yet :.hows no sign of te

IndfananolU. Nov. 12. General
Herman Sturman. who once possess
ed creat wealth, but lost it throueh
his dealings with the Mexican gov
crnment, has, after many yeau of
persistent effort, procured an allow
anceof his claim, which will restore
his fortune with interest. At th
time of the Maximilian invasion he
entered into a contract to furnish the
government with a large supply of
arms and amunition. Through the
wrecking of a steamship containing a
lanre nortion of the carco, and the
failure ot the government to pay for
the purchase, sturman oecame oanK
rupted and others became associated
with him lost heavily. Sturman en
deavored to recover insurance on
part of his loss and the case was in
court man,1 years. Two years ago
there was an adverse ruling on the
claim in the court: Sturman pushed
fthe matter, however, and has been
rewarded by receiving an allowance
ol $2,125,000 on his claim. This is
to be paid in Mexican bonds and he
will not realise the full amount.

Charleston, S. C, Nov. 12. A
meeting of the ways and means com
mittee of the city council was held to
night to consider the cases of the im
prisoned merchants who have failed
to pay their license tax. The matter
was referred to the committee by the
city council at a meeting held Satur
day. The committee after discuss
ing the matter reached the following
conclusion: "The mayor is author
ised to settle all the cases upon the
payment by the defendants of the
prices of their licenses with an addi
tion of 50 per cent, in each case. In
otead of all fines, cost and penalties,
the additional 50 per cent,, it is said.
will simply reimburse the city for the
actual outlay caused by the trial of
cases. All of the officers of the court
agree to' remit their costs. It is semi
officially stated that the mayor was
also authorized to release any mer
clmrt n iw in jail who can piove
that he is not able to pay the license,
fine ?nd costs of 50 rcr cent, penally.
There are 20 merchants in jail, only
one of whom, Hyatt, a watchmaker,
is unable to pay the fine. The pris
oner had previously issued their ulti
matum, which was that they would
pay their licenses only, so is it doubt
ful if the peaci offering of the city
council will be accepted.
