Killing One and Making ths Other
Jump Into the River—He
' Was Not Hurt
Manchester, 0., Dec. 21.—Harry
Blue and his wife recently came here
from Colorado. Since his arrival he has
been spending his time in mad carousal
and exhibitions of his cow-boy proficien
cy. Monday, in company with Thomas
Bouvard, who lives in Lewis county,
Kentucky, he proceeded to get drunk,
and, as he termed it, “paint the town
red.” The marshal, Robert McChesney,
hearing of their conduct, followed them
up and attempted to place them under
He placed Ins left hand on Bouvard
and, as ho did so, Bouvard and Blue
pulled their pistols and commenced
tiring at him. McChesney also pulled
his pistol and returned the fire. For a
short time the sound of cracking pistols
and whistling of balls was suggestive of
fearful carnage, as the street was crowd
ed with people at the time. After the
first two shots Bouvard reeled back a
few paces and fell dead on his face with
a bullet in his breast. Blue, after emp
tying the chambers of his pistol, fled to
the river and crossed to the Kentucky
side in a skiff.
It has since been learned that Blue
received a bullet wound in his left side.
Frank Pummel, a by-standor, received
a stray ball in the knee. The wound is
such as to cripple him for life. Mc-
Chesney, the marshal, was shot through
his overcoat. Otherwise he escaped un
injured. Coroner Purdy, after viewing
the remains and hearing the testimony,
pronounced the death justifiable homi
cide. The deceased was taken to his
home for burial. Officers are after Blue,
and he will soon be brought in.

fate of his favorites, and ordered a rigid
1 investigation.
Three eunuchs who had access to the

i Suspicion of having instigated the crime
I rests on one of the concubines who, un

present temper of his majesty it is
doubtful whether even she would es

sufficient proof of her guilt be adduced.
