Dallas, April 16. In yesterday's
News appeared an extract from a letter
received by City Marshal Arnold from
Nashville, Tenn., relating to the mur-
dor and outrage of two ladies in that
state, in the course of which, speaking
of the party charged with the crime,
the writer says: "Ho has lived in seve
ral places in your state, viz: Gaines
ville, and I think Fort Worth, and it
has occurred to me that he may bo the
man, who was guilty of tho terrible
murders which were committed in
your state sotno two years ago. He
was in Texas about that time, and if
he had the nerve to commit this crime
here he would do the same thing there.
What place in Texas did the
murder of the young ladies occur at?"
The following hue and cry, sent out
by the authorities of Rutherford
county, Tennessee, describes the party
Four hundred and fifty dollars re
ward is offered for tho arrest of one
George Dunnaway, who is wanted at

been cut in two. ' He wears his hat on
the baok of. his head, pulled down

and quick spoken.
Excitement at a Lecture.
Oliburni:, Tex , April 16 Prof.
1) O Tlipnis lectured to-dav at the
court house on phrenological matters,
and during nts lecture rcierreu iu mo
nnmhr nf children born to poor par
ents in the slums and purlieus of the
large cities as furnishing the greater
number of inmates to tho asylums, re
formatories and prisons.
At tbB 8taBe of e lecturer's re
marks Capt. Plummer, paid and evi
lantlv under uncontrollable excite
ment, approached the professor, and
pointing a cocked revolver in his faoe,
violeBtly exclaimed, "You've got to
take it back."
"Take baok what?" Certainly I'll
take it baok ! What is it?"
At this stage of the proceedings Dr.
Young approaohed, and stepping be
tween Plummer and the lecturer said :
"Why, captain, you are wrong! Look
beyond yourself I You do not under
stand." He, appoaled to the audienco
not to allow a stranger to be imposed
upon and he was quickly aided by them
in maintaining pcaoo and protecting
the stranger. Then Deputy Sheriff
Battle camo up and prevailing upon
the irate Plummer to leave led him off.
To make the consternation of tho audi
ence moro complete if possible, a car
penter named tostcr was atrioken with
an epileptio fit. The gentleman, R. O.
Dieuis, continued and finished, and in
closing appealed to every intelligent
gentleman who heard his lecture as to
his course while in the city and asked
only an impartial hearing and fair play.

life was extinct.

Court Marshalled far Making an
San Antonio, Tex., April 17.
Army circles of the department of
Texas are just now agitated over a
court martial whioh assembled at the
post of San Antonio yesterday for the
trial of Capt. Bainbridge Reynolds of
the Third United States cavalry, for
conduct unbecoming an officer and a
gentleman. Tho particular conduct
for which Cant, ileynolds is to bo tried
consists in his having written and had
published in tho San Antonio Express
of April 2 a card of apology whioh
road as follows :
"An apology to the ladies and gen
tlemen wbo visited me on tho evening
of tho 29th and 30th ult. I wish to
offer my moBt humble apology for the
extreme ungentlemanly conduot on my
part. I was sick, and at tho time
mentioned I was crazy, and cannot ap
preciate how I could have conduoted
myself in suoh a disgraooful and un-
entlemany manner. To eaoh and all
most humbly beg your pardon and
ask your forgiveness. 1 know that
vou cannot forget and hope you will
permit me to show by my future con
duct that 1 am not the loarer 1 made
myself to appear on those evenings.
The kind invitations to the ball I will
have to deoline, well knowing that my
firesenco could not bo agreeable. Aski
ng for forgiveness.
Capt. Third Cavalry.
As may be imagined, the ultra fash
ionable sooietv of this oitv was ereatlv
shocked on reading tho above card in
the Express, and what induced Capt.
Rcvnolds to write it still remains a
mystery, the general opinion being that
he was greatly under the influence of
liquor when ho indioted it. Tho trial
will be fairly entered into to-morrow.
and rioh and raoy developments are
expected. Capt. Reynolds is being
represented by Hon. Geoege Paschal
of this city.
