AKKAl.ox, Knn., .Jan. S A courier ar
rived here at noon yesterday jnst in from
t'.e south line of the state, lio reports a
mntiing conflict between the fleeing des
peradoes wLo assassinated Sin-ii IT Dunn
and n armed jHis.se of pursuers. Accord
ing to his report t hero wore two wagons
loaded w itli titicen of the men jiartieijiat
iuK in the ' (aiiVim'' battle. They had been
camped in a Kiilch south of Springfield,
where they were discovered. They saw
their pursuer Rt about the sumo moment,
and then commenced the life and death
race, tor ten miles the two parties were
not within firing distance, hot just before
dusk the pursuing party came within less
than a quarter of a mile of the despera
does, and then the firing commenced.
Saw I our of Them Tumble.
This riintiiupr fiplit was kept up on a
level plain for a distance of four miles
Following one fusillade four men were
ween to tumble from their seats in the
waffoni, one in one and three in the other.
It could not be ascertained whether they
were killed or wounded. The pursuing
party finding that their jaded horses
would not carry them further, made a
detour of some half a mile to a ranch,
where they procured fresh horses and the
race wa resumed. The courier started
back from that, point. lie says t he pur
suit on party numberine; fourteen men would
follow the desperadoes into No Mans Land
if necessary and brin them buck dead or
alive. Another courier is hourly expected
and with news of a battle.

Another and new feature has been added.
William V. Dunn, the 17-year-old son of
the murdered Dunn, will return here
Saturday after bis father's burial for the
purpose of settling up matters, as he. sas
with a quiet air, but with a dangerous look
in his eyes. The six men who escaped at
the canyon battle huve openly declared
that they will hunt to the death every man
concerned in the disgraceful afVair, and
youitf? Dann has joined them. They feel
bitterly the murder, and this feeling is ia
tensifiod by f I.e knowledge that the lody
of the murdered sheriff was robbed rt
arms, wratch, jewelry and money, provii...'
that outlaws in fact must lie dealt with,

The leaders of the ccni -iirators are now

he wired Governor Humphrey last night,

that more troops be sent to his aid. Xuere
are only twenty-live men in the company
remaining here, and tuis meager force

A. Bioodthlmty Society.
The organization which succeeded in
murdering Siierill Dunn Tuesday has been
formed in live of the tlx counties in Judge
Botkin's district, and the detectives who
succeeding in gaiuing admittance into the

compelled to take an oath that they would
prevent Judge Botkiu from again holding
court, if by any human effort he could be
disposed of. If he remains in the district
there is not the slightest doubt but he will
