Evidence It daily coming to band that
Congressman Gr-st "ill 1n(1 lborJ r
to travel If lie sucrer.ls in securing tbe
or it republican cotifctvisional nomin
tion. People conversant with the politi
cal situation in tbia end of be Eleventh
district, re ssre tbat the congressman
has rovrn tmlilj i" disfavor with hi
party for the st si nionthi. and open
nvowalsare mlr by l.rrrtnfore warm sup
porters of hi, ttint tli y will never vote
for him asio. The trouble Is mostly
owing to the nunnrr in which he hat
manipulated tie patrnnage of Mm dis
trict, although the f't ia by no means
lost sight ot that Mr. Ilest has dor.e abso
lutt'ly nothintr in congress, to entitle him
to any furibrTbonor. He is not charged
with neglecting his duties, but there la an
apparent lark of those qualities which
are essential t be a luccuifiil public ser
vant, in hi i imposition. This ran be do
more forcibly illustrated than in bis fail
ure to fulfill the many promises that were
maJe to the workinirraen before his elec
tion, in regard to securing additional ap
propriations for the arsenal work here.
How much bck pay have the workmen
received since Oest wss elected In 1988!
If he had any ii.lluence with tbe adniinis
tratlnn why didn't he have a clause in
tbe contract for stone for the arsenal dam
to cnmiel the dressing to be done here?
That would have given the home work
men reniunrratire labor for some time,
and shown that ht b.td their true interests
The disiUN-tion with Mr. Deal is
not confined to this lorslity, but If any
tiling, terms to le more Intense in other
parts of tiis district. This is rsecial)y
true of Haui-iM k county, as the following

W. Ii tiest, f 11. k Iiliunl, has recently
made a lour of this psrt of the Eleventh
district, and is no doult saiisticd that be
has made some bitter enemies among
those of his own parly. So long as
Cleveland was president Judge Oest had
an east time of it. for tbe (.filers to a great
Html were tided by democrats. Wtien
Harrison went into tlin White bouse It
was not a difficult matter to get rid of
democratic postmasters in the district, for
the reason that must of them hands I In a
prompt resignation. How to fill the va
rant places without creating a row was
the ipestion. Ii Is id that Oest a
pra! d to lUrrisoD to assist him out of
llir dilemma, but was Informed that he
must make bis own appointments.
The postoOli-c war in Iliincock county
was a hi'tcr one. Io Carthage, the

mid by people all over this city yesterday
a'ternooo. At first it was hardly believed,
but it proved to be the truth, and after a
lapse of over six months the prosecution is
to possession ot tha last thraad of evidanc a
neaded to establish I eyood the psradventure
ot a doubt tliat Cronin was assassinated in
tha Carlson rottaira, and that it waa his

Carlson cottage were found in tbe as war
Just underneath the manhole at the enrner

is only a mile and a quarter southeast ot tbe

He announced tbe faet and eent it up.
Upon forcing it opea the doctor' instru

Tbe articles were anon In Chief Hubliard's
office, and Judge Longenecker ant Mr.

quietly, tier eyes filled with tears as she
spoke, but quickly recovering from her emo

as coolly as any man In tbe room. Tbe next

Every garment recognized as Dr. Crouiu'
bad been cut off tbe body. Tbe vest was rut

and tbe doctor's white shut and collar. Ev
idently a vary sharp knife or a pair or scis
sors had bean used la this operation, it was
dona an neatly. Here and there, despite the
black dirt that nearly bid tba original color
of tbe clothe, dsrk red stains were foun.L
Capt. Sob ut tier pronouncsd tbem blood -status,

The aecnnd white ahirt was not ripped or
torn like the Brat one, though It, too, was
blood-stained. The attorneys agreed that it
waa tbe ahirt of one of tha mur

on tbe long end lmely trip through tbe de
serted streets of Like View with tbe muti
lated body. Tbe detectives present exam

ernoon at 1 :4J o'clock Hon. Va C Ooodloe
stabbed and killed Col A. M. Swope, in the
corridor of tbe government building. Oood
loe and iSwope met wben at their mail boxes.
Suddenly one of them aaid it could not be
distinguished which "You sprke tome; you
insulted me." After some angry words both
men drew their weapons together. Swope's
was a revolver; Goodloe' a hunting knife.
Both rnshed at each other. Swop fired and
Goodloe stabbed bim in the breast It was
a fatal thrust, and the wounded man gasped,
staggered backwards towards the door, ut
tering ejaculations of pain and rage.
Followed HI Dying Foe.
Goodloe followed him and planted blow
after blow on his opponent's breast. Dur
ing tbe atabbing Swope fired another shot.
which buried itself In Goodloe's right side.
It is believed it will have a fatal effect. Im
mediately after firing the second shot Swope
fell forward dea i.
Goodloe' Wound l'robsbly Fatal.
As soon aa Swop had fallen Gjodloe stag
gered to the door of tbe building, and seeing
an omnibus agent called to him: "Call a
carriage I'm shot clear through; get a doc
tor." CoL Goodloe was taken to the Phoenix
hotel and physicians summoned, who pro
nounced his wound to be probably fatal.
Th roetmastar'a Account f th Affair.
Following is Postmaster McCbesney's
statement: "I was drawing a money order
wbsu I heard some loud words and two shot
in the lobby. I rushed to the window and
aaw CoL Goodloe and CoL Swope in a dee-
perate encounter. Swope was backing
away and uttering loud exclamations, and
Goodloe rapidly atabbing him all tbe time."
CoL Ooodloe is at present collector of in
ternal revenue at this place.
Sad News lor Wll and Children.
After tbe affray toe uewa was immediately
eent to Mrs. Ooodloe by telephone, and abe
came in a carriage to toe bote! where her
husband lay. One of CoL Goodloe's daugh
ters fainted when ebe heard the news, and
tbe grief of the family was unbounded.
Knew the lssne VTontd B Death.
Col. Swope said a few days ago that be
knew if be and Goodloe met tbe issue would
be death, and said tbat iu such event he pre
ferred to be tbe slain rather than the slayer,
for the reason that CoL Goodloe bad a large
family dependent upon him. Swope was a

Swope fretting his mail. Their boxes ad
join. Swope obtained his mall, and, seeing
Goodloe, instead of steppiag aside, com
menced a conversation through t!ie open
window with a postal clerk. Goodloe said
to bim, "You obstruct tLm way." Swope
replied to tbe effect that It was au indiffer
ent matter to bim if he did. Goodloe aaid:
"This is the secoud insult from you."
Deadly Weapon Drawn.
Each confronted tbe other, drawing their
weapons, Swope a revolver from bis over

bis trousers pocket. Goodlo opened his
knife, ISwope tiring before be could nse it
Tbe first shot struck Goodloe in the abdo
men. Goid;oe plumed bia knife into Swops,
when Swo fired the second shot which

Goodloe's c Nidation tonight is precarious.
He rallied from tbe shock and hi pulse is

I.EXInoto-1, Ky., Nov. 9. Tbe Ill-feeling
between Swope and Goodloe began in 1SS3,
while Swope was collector of internal rev
enue here Goodloe went to v ashincton
City and tried to indue the president to re
move him. This came to tbe ears of Swope,
and ever since then the men have hated each
other with a deadly bitterness. This feeling
was deepened at Louisville a year ago last
ipring when, in tbe state convention to
lect delegates to tha national Ppublican
convention, a delegate from Pulaski county
arose and protested against bis count r casting
its y ute for Swope asdeleeate-at-larfe to tbe
national Republican convention at Chicago,

At this point Col. Swop arose and said:
"That's ncbt. I don't want vour vote.
Don't do like my county did instruct for
one mnn and vote fur another.
CoL Goodloe arose from bis seat and ex-

for the remark made in the Hepublic-an state

Willi W. Dickinson disappeared from
Commonwealth nearly nine years sgo, and
tliougb extensive search was made and a
standing reward of 3,'K0 offered for his re
covery, no trace of him wassver found. Mr.
Dickinson was a wealthy man, and took an
active part in tbe warfare upon tb notori

of the worst characters wbo infested tbat

threatened to "nt even." One dav Wilbe

by th examination of tbe teeth ot the skele
ton, whk-h were not thoes ot Wdlie D ckin

bore up bravely, but the stiwin was too
much, sod bar mind gave way.

wbo resembled Wiliie Ditkmson. The de

worn by tt illie at tbe time of his disappear
