MORTAL WOUNDING OF ROBERT
PARTICULARS OF THE TRAGEDY.
Tho city was startled last night by tho
report that Robert Bribach, n well-known
citizen, had boon killed In n porsonal ren
contre, In tho saloon of the city brewery,
with a stranger by tho namo of George
The particulars of tho tragedy wero sub
stantially as follows:
Moser was in tho saloon when Bribach
entered and was talking to somo person
about playing cards. Aftor listening for
a few moments, Bribach get into tho con
versation nnd challenged Mossor to play
for n wager. Moscr accepted tho chal
lenge, but after ho wns tented said he
would not play for inonoy but would lot
tho result of thcgitmodccido which should
buy tho beer fcr tho company. Bribach
took oll'ence nt this conduct, nnd began
to uso toward Moscr dccldodly uncompli
mentary language, nnd would havo struck
him If tho bystanders had not Interfered.
After the oxclloment hud cooled down,
Bribach invited Mosor to drink a glass of
beer with him, nnd tho invitntion wns nC'
copied. "While tho company wero statid
ing at tho bar Mosor said to Bribach : "You
can say what you please to mo, but it would
not linve boon well with you if you had
struck me; you vould havo been a dead
man." This remark seemed to frenzy
Bribuch, who Immediately threw off his
coat nnd struck Mosor threo or four times.
"If you strike mo again I will stab you,"
cried Moscr. Bribach did strlkn npaln
and sprang toward Moser, who mado good"
his threat by stabbing his assailant under
tho left arm, sovering nn artory. As
Moscr wns in tho net of striking another
blow with his knife, Mr. Swnnitz caught
him around the nrms. Bribach snnk down
on the floor, nnd feebly snid : "I um stub
bed; help inc." Moscr immediately loft
tho saloon and went in search of Dr
Wudgymar, and finding him said : "Come
quick, doctor; I hnvo stabbed a man nt
tho browory." And ho returned to the
scene of tho tragedy with the doctor,whorc
ho was arrested by constable Wcldon, who
lodged him in tho connty Jail. Dr. Wad
gymar could do nothing for tho unfortu
nate Bribach, who died within an hour af
ter he was wounded. The affray occurred
at 10 minutes before 9 o'clock. Coroner
