Harris ;did the Fourth and was buried
. A number of colored bucks and
-wenches have formed the habit of making
night hideous on North Osage street. The
law abiding citizens of that part of town
are making a grand kick about the proceed
ings. The sleeper, "Lone Star," came near
losing a porter last night. The fellow was
away a short distance at the Garrison
iour e interviewing another coon when the
train pulled out. A quick run was made
nd the train overtaken at the brick office
t Engineer street.
The city authorities desire to return
thanks to Mr. Joe Sicher for letting the
land off for one hour to meet the Texas
delegation of democrats which arrived in
the city Friday night. As the train was
late the band was unable to remain long
enough to serenade them.
From a gentleman who came in from
St. Joe, the Bazoo learns that a man put in
the greater part of the day there on the
Fourth looking for a set of teeth he had
dropped cut of his mouth. He also em
ployed a number of other people to look
lor them. Thisis not "false," as the gentle
Jinan's veracity can be vouched for.
Jacok Craig was recently run in by the
police but while some others were being
tried, he ran out and made his escape.
Testerday he appeared before Recorder
Bauck and paid his fine, $5, and went
lis way rejoicing. He probably feels
much better now.

The Fourth at Beaman.
The Fourth was royally celebrated at
Beaman. There were a large numher of
Sedalia's young folks present and all re
port having had a splendid time. Music
and dancing were the order of the day, and
at night there was a grand display of fire
works. Some of the boys amused them
selves during the afternoon by running a
farmer's wagon over a bank into a creek
near by. A team of horses had to be
hitched to the back end to pull it out. The
only casualty to be reported was a run
away in the evening. A team of mules
attached to a light wagon m wnicn were
seated three ladies and a boy. The ladies
were thro vn out, but the boy held on until
tue team was stopped.

Boston papers are full of the descrip
tion of two new dining cars which have

spoken of as "novelties in railroading,"
although the same style of car have been
used in the west for five years.
There were very few of the shop boys
at work yesterday. About half of the ma
chine shop force, and none in the black
smith shops. The K. & T. shops were al
so shut down. It is understood, however,
that the full force will be put to work to
A RAILROAD WAR IN SIGHT.
The riyalry between the Western and
Atlantic and East Tennessee, Virginia and
Georgia railroad is growing every day.and
it appears that a declaration of open war
is imminent. The former road put on a
fast freight and the latter followed suit and
claimed superior advantage. After this
matters cooled down, but during the last
week reached a white heat again, on the
excursion rates to Borne and Atlanta.
The E. T. people advertised three dajs
time on their tickets, and the W. and A.,
not to be outdone, advertise that tickets
via their line would be good fifteen days.
The E. T. promptly met this change. A
lively fight is being made in Atlanta for
the heavy northern watermelon business,
which may lead to a war of rates. Globe

Eecorder Rawck on
Eecorder Eawck was having a picnic
again yesterday morning, and the way he
did do those violators of the city laws up
was a caution to all evil doers. Follow-
bedana's representatives are a success
in sporting matters as they are in almost
everything else. Messrs Marvin & Doug
lass' stable ot neet runners nave been par
ticipating in the St. Louis and Chicago
meetings during the past month, and as a
maiier 01 inieresi 10 us reaaers tne .bazoo
now makes a summing up of their places
in the races run.
At St Louis, Valet won the three-fourths
of a mile dssh and ran third in the race
for a mile and an eighth, in company with
such horses as Freeland, John Davis and
several other fast ones.
Bluebird ran second ;and third in the
half mile heat race.
In the mile and a half dash Beechmore
ran second, being beaten only by a neck.
Lycurgus did not secure a place in the
mile dash, being seventh.
It will be seen that while the showing
was not a remarkable one, it was very sat
isfactory for horses unused to running with
a large "field.
At Chicago came the triumph. Blue
Bird was second, being beaten by a length
in the half mile dash in the remarkably
fast time of 4SA seconds.
Beechmore was second in the steeple
chase of one mile and three quar
ters, being only a half length behind the
Lycurgus was third in the three-fourths
of a mile dash, in the very fast time of
l:15Jt all three of the leaders going under
the wire with less than a neck separating
Valet was the one to distinguish him
self. He -won the three-fourths of a mile
dash, and on last Monday
in the mile and one-eigth event
beat Ascender, the favorite, who had beat
en John Davis and other celebrated run
ners and was looked upon as an easy win
ner, winning handily bf several lengths,
never being touched with the whip, while
Ascender and the balance were heavily
whipped when nearing the finish. Time,
Henry Snyder toed the scratch for intox 2.5.51 the latest ever made on the Chicago
track and but a second slower man tne best
0 record. Valet, by his performance
proved himself a horse of the first class.
The Chicago Times spoke highly of him,
and stated that hereafter he would be heard
from in other events. Valet made the mile
in 1:41 J, and under a strong pull, too, at
that. Had he been pushed he would
doubtless have eclipsed all the
records. It is said $10,000 was
offered for him immediately after the race
but was refused. Marvin & Douglass'
stable of horses are now valued at $25,000.

fined $3 for intoxication.
J. E. F;tzjerald pleaded "not guilty" to
the charges of vagrancy and late hours, but
the judge found him guilty and fined him
$11. That calls for about eleven days.
Henry Hook came up smiling to
answer the charge of intoxica

He was fined S5 for intoxication, and the
other two charges were dismissed.

There was a lively and nearly fatal run
away Friday night about 12 o'clock. A
young gentleman of this city and Miss
Mollie Korth and two sisters had been ont
to the park in a buggy nearly all day, and
during part of the afternoon were racing.
They started home when everything
was over, but had proceeded but a
short distance from the park, when their
attention was called to something and the
buggy was stopped. The horse had not
yet recovered from its excitement and
while no attention was being paid to it,
started toward the city at breakneck speed.
Miss North, seeing the danger, jumped
from the buggy at the start, and
the other two ladies and a baby
were thrown out before they had gone far.
The gentleman, however, held on until
Ohio street was reached, but here he met
the same fate. The buggy was turned over
and completely wrecked. Strange to say.

Putting Him Through.
Judge O'Brien was having a picnic all
by himself yesterday. Joseph Staley, col
ored, was arraigned before him on four sep
arate charges and fined as follows :
For assaulting one Mittie Stanford, $5.00
and costs. There were two charges against
him of this character, and both were dis
posed of in the same manner. For carry
ing concealed wepons he got $25 and costs,
and for destroying a hat for Mittie Stan
ford, $15 and costs, the sum total of which
was $85. Mr. Staley probably had about
85 cents in his pocket, but the jndge was
mad and wouldn't call it square. Instead
he turned him over to Constable Carnes,
but as Mont had no use for him he gave
him to Sheriff Conner, and he is now snooz
ing in the county jail. Truly the way of
he transgressor is by no means soft.

Otterville, July fSpecial.! John
Bonham. a farmer living some three and a
half miles south of this place, while riding
near his home last Thursday, was shot and
instantly killed with a double barrel shot
gun, in the hands of some unknown assas-
sin, mdden in tne brush. A jury empan-
nelled by the coroner to-day returned a
verdict in accordance with the facts. There
is great excitement here over the matter
but so far no clue to the perpetrator of the
cowardly act, as Mr. Bonham is not known
to have any enemies. The closest investiga
tion will be made and it is probable the
mystery will soon be solved.
Mr. Bonham was a widower, and is re
ported to have been living with a widow
At the time the tragedy occurred a boy
and girl, who were working in a field near
by, heard the report of the gun, and look
ing up saw Mr. Bonham fall from his
horse. Being badly frightened, they ran
away and gave the alarm, and in a few
moments several parties arrived on the
scene and found Mr. Bonham already dead.
Near by was found a calico hat with a cal
ico band, but beyond this nothing was
left. A Bold Burglary.
St. Joseph, Mo., July 5 Special The
boldest robbery ever perpetrated in St. Joer
occurred at five o'clock this afternoon,,
when an unknown white man and a negro
visited the residence of policeman Har
ry Chapman, in the southern portion of
the city, they rapped at the door and on
ascertaining that Chapman and his wife
were not at home, entered and'
seized the little girl who had
answered their call, and after gagging
and tying her to a bedstead, they began
their search for valuables and fished out of
an old stove pipe $650 in greenbacks with
which they escaped. The entire police
force of the city are searching for the
thieves to-nisht, but their efforts are not
likely to be rewarded with success.
