A DEMOCRATIC POINT GAINED,
Chetksnk, Wya, Dec. 21. Another pro
nounced victory was gained by the Demo
crats in the supreme court here yesterday.
The Republicans had called upon the court
to Include the governor in the mandamus
proceedings. The object of this move was
to force the court to say who was governor.
The court decided that the governor need
not be a party to suit against the state
canvassing board. It would be presumed,
ia the absence of allegations to the con
trary, that the court was legally conducted.
It was announced from the bench that the
supreme court would refuse to go Into the
natter of the count of Hanna precinct, in
Carbon county. It would confine Itself
entirely to the state canvass and to ques
tions of tha prima fade legality of returns
before the board.

Passengers Kept Down by a Fusillade

Ark., Affair ua Undoubted Case of Poi
soning Two More Oeath and Four
CniCAOO, Dec 21. Amid a fusillade of
shots four desperate thieves esbaped from
a Chicago and Eastern Illinois suburban
train at Fifty-third street last night during
a reign of terror that had been inaugur
ated by Officer Bailey attempting to arrest
one of their number. Windows w-re shat
tered and lamps extinguished by the
shower of bullets that whistled over the
heads of the passcugers in the smoking
car, and for five minutes the scene rivaled
a tale of life in the far west. It was colored
effectively, by 'the. two policemen standing
at bay before the revolvers of two of the
thieves while their pockets were rifled.
Restated an Attempt at Arrest.
Officer Bailey and his brother. lxth de
tectives, lxjsrded the train at Chicago and
at Forty-first street four men boarded the
train. A little while later Bailey on pass
ing the men recognized John McGrath and
Walter Gaynor, two members of the Mc-Urath-Mortell
gang, which is notorious.
Knowing that tho police were looking for
him Bailoy laid his hand on McGrath's
shoulder and said:
"You are under arrest. McGrath, so
come with me."
With an oath McGrath declared that no
officer cotild take him single handed, and
before Bailey could suspect his Intention
he had drawn a large revolver which he
thrust in the detective's face.
Both Officers Held Up.
Try to take me and I'll kill you," Mc
Grath exclaimed, at the same time cocking
Bailey's brother noticed the disturbance,
and started to help his brother. He was
stopped by Gaynor, who, with revolver in
hand, told him to throw up his hands.
There were a number of passengers in the
car, but everything had transpired so sud
denly that no one was able to offer assist
ance, McGrath gave instructions to his
companions to search Bailey's pockets,
take his revolver, and any money that was
on his person.
Terrorizing the Passengers.
In the meant i me McGrath's companions
marched np and down the aisle of the coach
firing their revolvers in every direction,
using the stove, windows and other objects
for targets. By two or three clever shots
the suspended lamps were extinguished,
increasing the confusion. There seemed to
be no attempt on the part of the men to
shoot the passengers, and McGrath, seeing
that some of the passengers were looking
dangerous calloi his men together and
told them to leave the train as it was ap
proaching a stopping place. Iu a moment
they all jumpd oil aud disappeared.
Struck the Officer with Hi PiHtol.
Before McGrath pased out, however, he
dealt Officer Bailey a blow on tho left side
of tho bead. He sprau-,' from the oar, fol
lowed by Gayuor, nud lxith dLsapieaii-d
among the freight c:irs in the yard. Uncov
ering himself Officer Bailey hastened after
them, accompanied by his brother. He
fired a number of shots in the dm-otion the
men had taken, but the men escaped. The
police were culled up all over the city when
the train reached linulewood, but so far DO
arrests have been made.
THE CONVICTS WERE POISONED.
Arsenic Pound in Jones Stouiacli Two
More Deaths and O hers Sick.
Little Bock, Ark., Dec 21. It has de
veloped thut the cause of the sudden deaths
among theouvicts at Helena, Ark., was
arsenical poisoning, though how it was
administered and by whom is yet a matter
of conjecture, A chemist yesterday ex
amined the stomach of Robert Bane and
found large quantities of arsenic This
establishes without a doubt the poisoning
theory. About 2 o'clock yesterday morn
ing ten more of the convicts werctaken
suddeuly ill and physic-inns were sum
moned. One of the Guards Sick.
One more man died Monday night and
another yesterday morning, making six
deaths In all. The camp was broken up
yesterday and the convicts taken away.

Grekn'shoko, Pa., Dec fcl. Mrs. Kate
Painter, who is charged with the poisoning
of her husband, was yesterday held for trial

censed; that Mrs. Painter was found kneel
ing beside the corpse, and was overheard
saying to herself: "O God, forgive me for
