Brandon, Miss., Aug. 10 A horriblo
shooting affray took place hero nt 9
o'clock this morning. In which T. Dab
n ey Marshall, a prominent lawyer and
member o the state legislature from
Vlcsburg, and two of his friends shot
and killed II. T. DInklns, agent of tho
Austin Iload machine company. While
standing on the platform of the depot
iJinxins was approacned ty .Mnrsnnu
nnd his two companions. H.H. Coleman
nnd . P. Fox of Vlcksburg. Marshall
walked up to DInklns and snld: "This
Is Mr. DInklns." and placing a pistol
nt DInklns' stomach fired tho weapon.
DInklns grabbed the pistol Just ns It
was ttred, and poslbly the first shot
did not take effect. As DInklns backed
away from Marshall, there was n fust
lade of shots from Marshall's compan
ions. It Is thought DInklns fired Mar
shall's pistol at the latter, as It was
found In his hand when dead.
The cause of the killing Is a sensa
tional story told of Marshall by DIn
klns. Two weeks ago DInklns and Mar
shall occupied the same room, but dif
ferent beds, at a room In Raymond,
nnd next morning DInklns told of what
was alleged to have transpired during
the night, stating that Marshall was
guilty of a crime Flmllar to the one for
which Oscar Wilde Is now serving n
term In an English prison. When the
story came to the ears of Marshall, he
denounced It ns a lie through the press.
DInklns, however, maintained that the
story wns true.
Marshall was the Democratic noml
nea for senator from Warren and Hind
counties. The killing Is strongly con
demned by the people. Marshall and
his friends have surrendered.

Washington, Aug. 10 There nre per
sons whose relations with the president
nre of the cloicst character who be
lieve that Mr. Cleveland's Ilrst cholqe
for Justice Jackson's successor on tho
supreme bench will be Mr. Olncy, the
secretary of state. It is known he plac
es Implicit confidence In tho poundness
of Mr. Olney's opinions on all Impor
tant lecal questions which come be-
fore him, nnd that he fully appreciates
tho great assistance Mr. Olney has ren
dercd him In the disposition of the
great questions that have arisen dur
ing the last two years. Whether Mr.
Olniy's residence In Massachusetts will
render him unavailable It is not known
but It Is the opinion of many well In
formed persons here thnt but for this
objeclon he would surely be the man.
Next to him Mr. llufus Peckham Is
thought by many to be the most
likely to receive the nomination.
DEMANDS ON CHINA.
No olllrlnl advices have reached the
state department concerning the report
cd destruction of the American mission
property at Inghok, China. It lu be
lieved nt the department that the place
referred to Is Identical with Su Ing,
where troubles were reported two days
ago and that this second dispatch re
lates to the same Incident.
Acting Secretary Adee received a tel
egram from Nashville signed Jointly
by the Southern Methodist nnd Pres
byterian Missionary society ofllclals
confirming the report of the outrage
ous character of the Ku Cheng massa
cre apd urging tho state department
to protect tho American missions In
China. Mr. Adeo has responded by tcl
grams that United States Minister Den
by had already taken the most vigorous
measures to secure the safety of Amer
icans nnd thnt renewed Instructions to
that end had already been mailed to
the minister. It Is not doubted that
Mr. Denby Is doing everything possi
ble in the disturbed district to care
for the missionaries but there are some
things beyond the power to accomplish
at this time. He has for many months
personally and through the American
consuls In China, urged the mlanlnnn.
rles to come down from the dangerous
Interior posts to the treaty ports, repre
scntlng to them thnt no matter how
Inclined he might be to do to, he could
not dispatch ships over land or up shnl
low streams to protect them.
ACrnlral Carpenter is also willing to
do everything proper toward coopera
ting with the minister, and If he be
lieves It to be prudent to send some
of his sailors and marines out and
through n hostile country he is fully
authorized by his instructions from the
navy department to do so.
Tho state department expect to re
ceive full nnd ample reparation for
the damage sustained bv th Amnri.
cans in China, and Ipdeed Minister l
xjvimy nns itircauy maue a most vig
orous demand on the Chinese govern
ment to that effect.
ALL LEB'T TO DENBY.
Consul Genernl Jernlgan has taken a
great deal of Interest In the recent
trouble and has sent several dispatch
es to the state departmene giving in
formation and making suggestions for
protection. Th.e state department has
not called upon the navy for any ship
or force to land and proceed into the
Interior. Minister Denby has aputhor
ity to call upon Admiral Carpenter for
United States forces nnd under his In
structions the admiral Is bound to fur
Both state and navy departments be
lieve that the United States represent
atives on the ground, clothed with am
ple power, nre better able to act for
the best than those here In Washington
Accordingly Secretary JUcAdoo said
today that he could give Admiral
Carpenter no Instructions, especially
ns Minister Denby had not asked that
anything be done. As to the suggest
ion that the admiral should tend a
force In boats ho said that the minis
ter nnd ndmlral were better able t
know whether such a course was wise.
It might be a sacrifice of men lo send
them several hundred miles in the In
terior. The British government had
more cause for making a demonstra
tion than the United States and yet no
Kngllsh forces hnd been pent to the
scene of the trouble. Mr. McAdoo said
that an order from him to Admiral
Carpenter might wholly Interfere with
plans or operations, the commander
had in view or under way.
Shanghai, China, Aug. 10 The Ameri
cans here have sent a cable dispatch
to President Cleveland protesting
against United States Minister Denby's
action In consenting thnt the British
consul should represent America In
the Szrehun Inquiry. They recom
mend n reconstrutlon of the commission
by sending an American official of ade
quate rank and the exclusion of Impli
cated Chinese ofllclals. They also
recommend that a marine escort ac
company the commlpslon.
London, Eng-., Aug. 10. a dispatch
to the Times from Berlin says: It Is
stated here that the pope has written
to Emperor William requesting him to
take the Catholic missions In China
under his protection.
New York. Aug. 10 Rev. A. B. Leo
nard, corresponding secretary of the
Methodist Episcopal board of foreign
missions fears further violence to the
Americans in China. Speaking today
of the cablegram received by him yep
terady from the mUlsonarles at Foo
Chow appealing to him to arouse the
authorities to the necessity for action
"I have wired the secretary of state
nt Washington urging him of the ne
cessity to act promptly for the safety
of our citizens In China and asekd to
be advised of what steps would be
taken. I have as yet received no re
ply. "I understand that Mr. Olney Is at
Buzzurds Bay and that Mr. Uhl Is In
Europe. I do not know who Is In
charge of the department nor do I
know what is being done in this grave
"I do not like to criticize but I do
Know that our missionaries are praying
for the presence nmong them of the
government's defensive strength and
they are not the kind of people to ask
It If it is not badly needed. It Is also
certain that If our missionaries are p
danger so are all of the Americans and
foreigners In China."
