St. Louis, Nov. Senator William
J. Stone swamped Thomas J. Akins in
the contest for United States Senator
from Missouri today, but the returns
from Congressional districts indicate
that there has lieen a switch from

these elections are still in dotiht, the
indications are that the Republicans
have won several from the rural dis
tricts, in additional to carrying two
districts in St. Louis and possibly
three.

A large barn on the Ira Hastings
farm, a few miles north'bf East Cape,
was completely destroyed by fire Sun
day afternoon, and all the contents,
consisting of hay and farm machinery
were lost.
This was one of the largest barns in
f'outhern Illinois, said when destroyed,
contained 1"0 tons of choice alfalfa
: av and about .$"()( worth of farm ma- i
tilinery.
The loss is estimated at $.",0()0 and
i' insurance amounts to &2,r00.
The exavt origin of the lire is no!"
nown, but it is believed by Mr. Kin-!

lighted cigarette that had been care

The fire broke out at 4 o'clock in the
i fternoon and lasted until almost mid
right. The flying emliers lighted on two
eiher large barns nearby, and for a
time it appeared that they would also
be lot.t. Neighboring farmers assist
ed in keeping the flames confined, and j
by heroic effort the adjoining buildings i
were saved.
ray several Republican Congressmen
have been elected over Democratic in
cumbents. The race for Governor of New York
between Gov. Glynn and former Dis
trict Attorney Whitman is close, with
Whitman leading by more than
100,000 in the upstate vote. It is not
believed that Glynn will be able to
overcome this majority with the vote
he will receive in greater New York.
Tammany Hall has not given the Gov-
Lernor enthusiastic support, and his

Before he succeeded in dislodging
the beast, he received numerous

was finally successful in freeing him

left standing a short distance from

directed aim the animal was killed as
it was in the act of leaping upon him
the second time. Mr. Beal, who was
busy looking after some repairs to the
car did not know of the encounter un

He was so elated with his success
that he concluded to continue his hunt,

in one of the bloodiest pistol duels
rv r recorded in the police annuals of
ikfston. Tom Daugherty, a carpenter
that city, yesterday morning, tired
two- bullets into the body of his son.
Mai ion Daugherty, fatally wounding
him, and then turned the weapon on
James Tierce, breaking his wrist, af
ter which be mortally wounded Chief
of Police E. E. Arthur, who was en
deavo'ing to Uell the disturbance.
Daugherty and Pierce are carpen
ters and have worked together much
of the time during the past few
months. Both are about 45 years of
age and are men with families.
It is said that Pierce was( suspi
cious that Daugherty was paying too
close attention to Mrs. Pierce, but
friends say this suspicion was with
out foundation.
Yesterday morning Mrs. Tierce had
gene to the depot at about 9 o'clock,
preparatory to making a trip to
Cairo. Her husband followed a short
time later, and when he reached the
depot he found Daugherty and Mrs.
Tierce in conversation.
He returned to his home and se
cured two revolvers after which he
again apoeared at the depot and walk
ing toward Daugherty, fired one shot
at him. Daugherty immediately drew
his revolver, but before he had an op
portunity to use it, his son, Marion
Daugherty, a young man 24 years of
age, grappeled with him and they
both fell in the. center of the Iron
Mountain railroad track in front of
the depot. - -
"In the meantime, Chief of Tolice E.
Er Arthur had seized Pierce and in his
endeavor to wrest his gun away from
hiir. thry fell and were struggling
with each other a few feet from tb
irate fathwr and hi.? son.
7SSSSSSBSSSSSX
The elder Daugherty admonished
his son to release him or he would
shoot him. The boy still slung to bis
father, and did not re lease hi'- hold
until two shots had been fired into his
body.
The young man released his father
and struggled to a post for support,
still pleading with his parent.
The M-nior Daugherty i said to
have remarked to his boy, "Pierce
shot you didn't he, son?" to which the
bey replied, "No, Tierce did not shoot
me. You have killed me, you ought
to come on with me now."
The older man then remarked, "I
will not go until 1 have killed both of
these men," ami walking over to where
the two men were struggling he point
ed his gun down at them and fired.
The shot broke the wrist of Tierce's
right hand, and the revolver he was
grasping fell to the floor. The Chiof
then turned and rolled away from his
adversary, and as he did so, Daugher-
tired at him, the ball penetrating
his abdomen and passing through his
body.
Chief Arthur and young Daugher
ty were conveyed to the office of Doc
tors Malcolm 5 Miian, a short distance
away, where their wounds were dress
ed. Marion Daugherty was shot twice
one of the balls entering one hip and
pa-ssing out at the other. The other
bullet passed through his body and
penetrated the kidnevs.
Chief E. E. Arthur was struck by
one bullet which entered the upper
part of his abdomen and passed direct
ly through his body, coming out near
the spine.
The train for Cairo, waited at the
depot for the injured men to receive
temporary treatment, after which they
were placed aboard and taken to a
hosoital in Cairo.
Tierce and Daugherty were arrested
about a half hour after the shooting,
and Daugherty, when arrested had
purchased a ticket for Cairo and was
aboard the train. He protested at be
ing arrested and was taken from the
train by force.
When searched a revolver with
every cartridge fired, was found in his
pocket. The one that was taken from
him immediately after the shooting,
contained two empty cartridges, thus
imlicating that he had fired eight shots
in all.
Tierce's gun also contained two
empty cartridges, but bystanders ssy
that he fired but one shot, and it is
the belief that one of the sK41s was
empty befora the dul opjiftd.
