of the city. It appears that his murderer met
Charless on Market street, and acoostcd him
abruptly, with theso remarks: "You aro the
son of a that swore against my charac

one ball taking effect in bis abdomen, the
other in his left side after he had fallen. The
victim reeled into a store, and was finally re
moved home, where he died tho next morning.

of over $18,000 from the Boatmen's Saving
Institution, in which, at that time, four years
