NOTES FROM NEW ORLEANS
tVickliffe Receives a Threat from New
York The Waters Shooting.
New Orleans, La., March 20. -Mr.
John C. Wickliffe yesterday received the
following letter from New York: ' Xow
that your treacherous mission is don.s and
your bull-dog thirst for Italian blood is
satir-fied, you and the other New Orleans
blood hounds of your stamp may prepare
yourselves for the penalty that you well
deserve, and don't forget you will get it
sure enough." The warning went to the
Kesnlt of an Old Feud.
The shooting of Waters by Capt. Dunn,
of the counsel for the prosecution in the
Hennessey case, really had no reference to
the assassination, although it is true that
Waters was drunk Wednesday nigh", and
was abusing the citizens who took p:irt in
the uprising. There was an old feud be
tureen the men growing out of politics
and the shooting of Dunn's friend. Baker,
by Waters four years ago.
Another Account of the Fight.
Waters was standing at the corner of
Canal and Bourbon streets at about il
o'clock and was boisterously denouncing
the affair of last Saturday. Dunn hap
pened along nbout this time and W.Uers,
catching sight of him, made some, very
uncomplimentary remarks. Waters
called Dunn, who was turning awa-, and
as Dudh came toward him. Waters drew
n revolver and fired, but missed. Dunn
also drew and eleven or twelve shots were
exchanged in rapid succession. Frank.
Waters was .16 years, a native of this city.
He married, two years ago, Miss Doug
lass, who survives him. Arthur Dunn is
' years old, He is married and has a
family of six children.
Don't Like lilaine's Denunciation.
Although the capital of the state is at
Iiaton Rouge both Governor K icholls and
Attorney General Rogers reside here.
These gentlemen are in consultation re
garding the reply of the governor 1 1 Sec
retary lilaine, whose letter to th? gov
ernor is regarded here as having been pre
niatttre.aiid unnecessarily severe in its de
nunciation of the action taken by the cit
izens of New Orleans.
The Jury Itriuery Matter.
I'k-fore the grand jury yesterday Thomas
!. Collins, u detective, testified concern
in.,' the bribery of tales jurors in the Hen-ne.-sey
case. Collins managed to gain the
"mlideiiee of Private Detective O'.M alley,
wiio took him into his t-mploy. His te-ti-in
.nv was secret. The city attempt d an
ther coup similar to the Collins scheme,
but this, although well planned, fell
through. A detective was bi ought here
from Italy, arrested upon a charge of
counterfeiting, and sent to the parish
prison. He was put into the satne s -ctiou
v-itli the other Italian prisoners, but they
heeame distrustful of the newcomer and
nothing was learned.
The Way How ot to Do It.
Sheriff Villere, in his report of Satur
day's mob work, says that when he heard
of the trouble he first went to the chief of
Police, who referred him to the mayor;
the mayor was not to be found, so he weut
to the governor, who told him to formally
deniand the mayor's assistance aud to re
port to him (the governor). He thee weut
to the mayor's uftice. where be learned
that the mob had completed its worK.

has the follow ins; from Harrisburg, Pa.:
The much -talked of prize fight between
Joe McAnlilTe. of New York, and Jim
Daly, .f Philadelphia, took place in the
vicinity of this city last night, nearly 31
spectators witnessing the mul. The terms
of the light were that Jim Daly should
stay six rounds for a purse of $1,000. This
he managed to do, aud although receiving
a lot of punishment was aluiont as fresh
as his burly opponent at the finish. It is
only fair to McAuliffe. however, to state
that he broke the first knuckle of his lert
hand in the fourth round and was inca
pacitated from hitting the Quaker City
man as hard as he might otherwise have
done. Neither man was much hurt, al
though Daly was knocked down four
times. D;tly was awarded the money.
Letter Written on a Postage Stamp.
Ellington-, Conn., March 20. When the
postmaster at the little country office in
this village opened his mail bag one day
last week a singlecancelled postage stamp
fell out. He looked among the letters to
see if the stamp had come from any of
them, but they were all right. Then he
examined the back of the stamp to see if
the gum was still on it. He found that
Mrs. J. F. Irviss,of Shaker station, in this
state, had exercised her ingenuity and
strained her eyesight by writing a letter
on the back of the stamp. On one edge
was a small margin of white paper, such
as is always found on the full sheets of
stamps, and on this was written the ad
dress, Miss Lizzie K Kibbe.

Nkw York, March 20. The Recorder
says: The American association and Na

from the national board. The National
league people have been quietly at work
for several weeks endeavoring to patch
up a peace with the Association. The As
sociation people refused to treat with
Thurman, which is practically the cause
