The saloons were closed last
Sunday but it was not through the
eiforts of the city administration or
Marshal Morgan. The saloon keep

The Tribute was largely instru
mental in influencing, the saloon
keepers to keep closed doors it suc
ceeded in doing what Marshal Mor
gan was apparently afraid to do.
The Tribune has no fight against
Messrs. Laing, Healey, Waltemath
.aud. Sparling: it simply desires
along with all or nearly nil of cur
citizens that they keep closed, doors
on Sunday. This they have started
in to do; let us hope that it will be
continued. .Marshal Morgan did
not figure in this action; he deserves
40 credit

Flovd Hutchinson, an eighteen
year old boy living on Brady island
died Sunday from the effects of
blow on the head struck by John
Rawlins, the skull on the left side
being" fractured from the forehead
to the base of the brain.
As near as can be learned the
particlars of the affray are as fol
lows: Hutchinson and Rollins were
working in the hay-field for Mr.
Abercrombie. Friday night after
quiting work the two boys were
feeding the horses, and Rawlins
had a piece of board or scantling
which he had been using in driving
away a horse which persisted in
eating from the wrong trou
While looking- after the horses the
boys became involved in a quarrel.
Rawlins claims, we believe, that
Hutchinson slapped him in the face
and in self defense he had struck
Hutchinson with the board. There
was a third party present at the
time, but it being- dark he did not
see the fight, but distinctly heard
two blows struck.
Hutchinson was taken to Aber-
crombie's house in an unconscious
condition, and Dr. McCabe of this
city summoned. Accompanied by
vr. jves ue went aown ana upon
examination the physicians found
the left side of the skull badly frac
tured, one fracture running from
the forehead back to the lower part
of the head, and another from near
the top of the head down to the ear.
The scalp was bruised but little,
showing that the club used was
broad. The physicians at once con
cluded that there was little if any
show for the boy to recover. They,
however, trepanned the skull and
rendered such aid as was possible.
but the patient died about twelve
hours after, without regaining con
