an election should be followed by an official
list of the killed, wounded and "missing," the

In fact, very few editors ever Ret hurt, aud
as to politicians well, activity in politics
seems almost equal to a physical policy of
life insurance. There was Preacher-editor
Kalloch shot, but not killed, by De Youn in
Ban Francisco; De Young shot dead by Kill
loch's son; Editor Carruth shot by Land is in
New Jersey, and dying after lingering a year;
Editor Dawson, of Charleston, murdered, but
not for reasons connected with journalism;
perhaps three or four other cases, and Anally
the recent shooting at Washington really
not more than a dozen cases of political or
editorial shooting in a dozen years. "Threat
ened men live loinr" is a proverb with a good
deal of truth in it.
It was not always so. There was a time,
and many living can remember it, when
shooting among editors and politicians was
alarmingly common. The civil war was the
era of politico-editorial reform in this partic
ular. The hotspurs got aatiate.1. Among
the last noted cases in the west was that of
the once noted, if not notorious, Maj. Moreau,
of Indiana. He had an unfortunate record.
He had won honors ia the war, and then been
court martialed and dismissed under circum
stances wulcn left a doubt whether he was
not the victim of persecution. He had been
a Republican, and left his party on the re
construction question. He was unfortunate
in business, and his creditors made serious
cnargea. Mis record as to the fair sex was
also questioned. Withal be was a violent
partisan and attacked unsparingly ; so his
enemies kept his alleged misdeeds well venti
lated. Alter many encounters and many more
threats Maj. Moreau published a cruel attack
on a fellow editor, ridiculing a personal de
formity. Ine assailed man proceeded to
Moreau's office and emptied a "bulldog'' re
volver right and left; Moreau dived under a
beavy table, while compositors and "devil
went out at door or window, ns was most
convenient. Great damage to fixtures, but
nobody killed. The plsee. then became too
hot to hold Moreau and he went to Georgia,
where he was killed by a negro, under circum
stances which cannot be detailed iu a family
paper. He certainly bad a brilliant career.
Of all modern commonwealths MisM.ippi
has made the bl.xxli.wt record in editorial
killings. Popular opinion would a-ssign that
place to Arkansas or Texas, but both are far
behind Mississippi. The "heated term" did
not last many years, but it was terrible.
There was a time when editing The Vicksburg
oeotlnel was looked upon as almost sure death.
Of nine successive editors eight were killed in
duels or street lights. Dr. James Fall, who
lives (or did a few years ago) iu New Orleans.
was long a distinguished man as being the
only editor of The Sentinel who was not
killed, and he was shot in the leg in a duel
with Mr. Robb, a fiery politician. This shoot
ing epidemic tiegan as early as lSC'-si, in
what was called the "flush times" of Vicki
burg, and reached a furious climax during
the heated debates over the annexation of
Tetas and possible dissolution of the Union.
Nine-tenths of the fights involved editors,
lawyers and politicians, though occasionally
a gambler mixed in. A mob finally rose and
banged the gamblers. Among the noted en
counters was that in which S. 8. Prentiss
put a bullet through Governor Henry S.
Foote. Almost every man and boy in Vicks
burg went over to
see the duel. Hon.
T. B. Hill, of Geor
gia, Is believed to
be the first politi
cian in the south
who refused to fight
a duel (In 1S50,
Alex. Stephens be
ing the challenger)
on legal aud moral
grounds, and yet

lawyers and politicians abated at Viokburg,
but raged all the more violently at New Or
leans. In Washington city encounters of either
kind have been extremely rare; and yet two
presidents have been assassinated and the life
of a third attempted. Lawrence, who tried
to shoot President Jackson, was an undoubt
ed lunatic and lived thirty-five years there
after in an asylum. A pistol was once drawn
In the Uuited .States senate aud snapiied nt
Benton, of Missouri, but it proved to be un
loaded, and the act is believeu to have been
a "bluff." In the bouse of representatives
there have been some fist fights, but no shoot
ing. The ferocious assault ou Senator Sum
ner by Representative Brooks, of South Car
olina, was made with a cane, but it was
nearly fata all the same.
The ludicrous "encounter" between Morri
son Munford, of Kansas City, aud Col. Fos
ter, of St. Louis, growing out of editorial
battle over the invitation to Jefferson Davis
to address a crowd at an Illinois fair, inter
ested the people for a long time, and ended in
giving occasion for a general laugh.
The recent shooting at Washington seems
to have been largely the result of a joke.
Kincaid was told that Taulhee intended to
kill him, and Taulhee was led to believe
that Kincaid meant further mischief with
uu pen; so the correspondent, a nervous
and somewhat excitable man, constantly im
agined that the ex -congressman was seeking
to "corner" him until, in sheer desperation,
be armed himself and shot bis supposed
enemy. The original cause of trouble was

Kincaid to the Louisville Times of a Wash

of Louisville, and in the ticket department of
tbe Louisville and Nashville railroad, and
later provision superintendent of the Wagner

New Albany by his friends, and buried in

a man of magnificent physique, which, per
haps, caused the resurrectionists to violate
their usual rula, which Is to obtain the corpses

ward Pearce, a policeman in New Albany, was
less prominent than Mr. Johnson, but very
popular. It is a very curious fact that dur

At midnight, in the mi.l.st of a fearful storm,
the robbers entered the cemetery and went
straight to the graves.
"Throw up your hands and surrender!"
Such was the greeting they received.
George Brown, colored, drew a pistol, but
before he could raUe it there wu.s a shot from
one of t!ie Johnson brothers and a load of
buckshot went through Brown, killing him
instantly. The two doctors and a colored
