The Slat/back Tragedy.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.}
St. Louis, Oct. 16.—The Slayback-Cock
rill tragedy was the one subject of interest
here to-day, and as the feeling against
Cockrill had been sedulously worked up by
Slayback's friends, and a very one-sided
account of the affair was published by one
of the morning papers, the survivor of the
fatal encounter has been freely condemned.
The injustice of this will be seen when it
is known that of the four witnesses of the
affray, three testified on oath on the in
quest that Slayback was an armed
aggressor. " The Gloee correspondent
interviewed W. H. Clop ton, who made the
following flul statement of his connection
with the affair: . .*.
**I was at the office of Col. SI ayback at
4:30 on business. When I got through and
was about to go, he asked me to sit down,
but I told him I wanted to go to a publish
er in the rear of the building. I went,
and on coming, back Slayback caught me
by the arm and we went to the office of .
the Post-Dispatch. On arriving iters I
followed Slayback up the stairs. We were
both walking hastily.He took one rapid step
when near the.door and entered," when the
door was closed. I put my hand on the
knob, entered and saw Slayback taking off
his coat and heard him say: "Don't draw
that pistolbn me." -When the word "draw"
was enunciated I heard a pistol fired. I
approached Cockrill and forced his arm
toward the window. Slayback called me,
an 1 I turned, and he had closed with Cock
rill. Seeing Slayback bleeding I released
Cockrill, and eased Slayback to the floor.
I had gotten down on my right knee hold
ing Slayback, and on : looking up saw an
excited person whom I know to be a news
paper man with a pistol at my head. I
told him to put up' " his pistol
saying: * "Don't you see my
friend is dead f. ' when the pistol was low
ered. . .-...-,- -..-.
"When Col. Slayback entered the room he
closed the door, Cockrill was in the act
of rising, and Slayback commenced taking
off his coat with his right hand thrown be
hind him to enable him to"» catch the right
coat sleeve with his left hand. lie called
on Oockrill not to draw (bat pistol on him.
When I. went into Col. Slayback's office
was sitting with Col.. Broadhead and an
other gentlemen. I sat with him until he
he read the editorial of the Post-Dispatch,
omitting the card. He then took another
edition of the same paper out of his desk
and read another editorial. He asked me
if I would go and see Cockrill with him.
When he had got to tho foot of the stairs
I told him he had better let me go and see
Cockrill. I asked him if there was any
thing of a personal nature between him
and Cockrill, and he replied that there was
not; that their difficulties were all settled.
I told him I would go and see who was re
sponsible for the editorial, and when I had
done so that I would serve him in any ca
pacity. He insisted on going himself, and
said that no apology would
satisfy him; that he would just slap
Cockrill in the face and demand an apolo
gy afterward. Col. Slayback made no other
threat, save that of' slapping Cockrill in
the face. He had no pistol. He was not
unduly excited and made no motion, ex
cept to take off his coat. He was ; moving
toward Cockrill, and had no pistol in his
hand whatever. By the time, he closed
with Cockrill I had the latter by the right
arm, in which he held the pistol. Slayback
called me. I turned, and seeing his face
covered with blood, released Cockrill's arm
and went to my friend's assistance.. Cock
rill passed out of the room with the pistol
in his hand. While I was relieving the
wounded man, a policeman entered and
went to the reporter's room, and subse
quently, when the crowd had gathered to
my office, CoL Slayback died in my pres
ence and in my arms. I should judge that
he lived only a minute after the shot . was
fired. I heard no werd from Cockrill. .He
spoke no word, and had he done so, I would
have unquestionably heard it." This Clop
ton substantially repeated at the inquest.
• (Western Associated Press')
St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 16.—1t was expected
that counsed for Col. Cockrill would apply
for his release on bail this morning, but
the evidence taken before the coronor's
jury not yet being written out, and there
fore not in position to submit to the
court, and owing to the fact that Judge
: Laughlin, of the criminal* court,'is sick,
action in the case will be deferred till
'Wednesday. No charge has yet been made
. against Mr. Cockrill, but it is .understood
--.the coroner will swear out a warrant very

St. Louis, Oct. 16.—Quite a sensation
was created this ; afternoon by 7 a report
which was circulated on the streets, that
Morris Michael, a pawnbroker, ;of No. : 6
: north Fourth street, had declared that the
pistol that John M. McGuffin bad testified
_to have taken away from Col. Slayback in
: the shooting affrayV at the Post-Dispatch
office last Friday evening really.- belonged

to Slayback. and. that he (Michael) had

oner late .-. this -""■'. evening . recalled
the jury that sat on the inquest, and sum
moned Michael before it, who swore he
identified the weapon as - the one sold to
Col. Slayback about four months ago, and
that it still retained * his private i trade.
mark. ■„ This establishes the ownership of
the pistol, about which there has been so
much doubt, and . overthrows J that part of
Clopton's testimony, which - believed Slay
back was not armed. In fact, it changes
the aspect of the whole : affair, and is re
garded by Cockrill's friends as an addition
al and very strong point in his favor.
- St. Louis, Oct. 16.The Bar association
of this city held a meeting * to-day, and •
adopted a long resolution on the death of
Col. Slayback. After paying a glowing
tribute to that gentleman's character, abil
ity, legal attainments and general social
qualities, it says:7"lt is especially incum
bent with the bar to anticipate the event
of a judicial inquiry. A most valuable life
has been destroyed, a happy hearthstone
shattered in the midst of one of the
largest cities \ of the land, a. deed -V of
: homicidal violence has been perpetrated
Into the circumstances attending the com
mission a searching investigation will be
made. If the homicide be proven to be
felonious, we hope and j believe the pun
ishment will be condign, but it is not our
duty here and now to determine this ques
tion. As lawyers we defer to the law, but
passing from the actual to he as
yet uucertained circumstances of
this bloody deed, .we feel' it
our duty to protest against the spirit of
ruffianism which is abroad, the wanton em
ployment in speech and writing of intern
peratedicentious and defamatory language,
tho resort on frivolous pretext to deadly
weapons, and the encouragement of a sen
timent which may impel a sensitive spirit j
to throw away life in a demonstration that
death is not feared.". 7 " .

and as the boat swung out into '. the stream '
he leaped to the deck of the Argus. This '
vessel, too, was a mass of Ilame3, and to *
reach the wharf Girtner, encouraged Jby ,

Chicago, Oct. 16.—Ex-Rev.; George C.

let at the Grand Opera house this evening
before a cultivated audience, physically
measured by the capacity •_; of the house.
His somewhat sudden transit from the

. Chicago, . Oct. 16.— markets on
'change to-day for. the leading cereals and
for provisions,' were active ! and stronger,
the shorts being the principal buyers* and
absorbing all " offerings. ■' On . the regular
board a good advance was secured \in all
markets. "Although the highest figures
were not sustained in the afternoon, yet the

continued in active' request, and sold up
jj*£*@£s'c further. ; Oats also were firm and
steady. _ For regular wheat quite an active
speculative demand existed, and the feel
ing developed was stronger and prices
higher. Foreign advices were 'favorable,
and New York was reported firmer. Our
receipts show an increase, but the arrivals
were for forty-eight T hours. . The market

mand was good from the speculative inter
est and tho offerings not large. Later the
market eased off a trifle, prices receded
about " %c, fluctuated, and' finally closed
about lj^c higher than the closing figures
Saturday. The futures advanced in about
the . same degree, November, December and
year scoring a gain of about lV_o. On the
call board, the offerings were rather free,
too large, in fact, for ; the - advance to be
fully sustained, and; the market eased off
slightly. 7 The demand for spring was
good, .and although the receipts were
heavier the market was firmer and
higher, Winter J was 7; in .fair

for May than the closing figures on 'change
Saturday. The demand was almost entire-*
ly speculative, shippers buying sparingly
at the advanced figures. ; The - cloudy
weather and reports " of heavy rains in the
west had - perhaps some influence on . the
market. On call the cereal was even in
greater request, and notwithstanding the
little drop in wheat and provisions, made a
very perceptible : advance in the face of
the unloading of over 3,000,000 bushels on
the call board Z below, which amount was
eagerly taken by the shorts. Of year corn
alone a million and a ; half bushels
changed, hands.V; Reports from various
sections of the country; are to the effect
that there \is . a feeling prevailing among
farmers in all sections that the extent of
the crop of 1882 .r has been ; overestimated,
and that they can realize most from their
corn by holding " it until next summer,
when many of them expect to get 75c."" It
is probable that many farmers who can
afford to do this, will. The" high price of
hog products is an argument quite con

and other markets showed an increase. *
-:, the WEEK just past :.
has been rather ovantful ;- on 'change
in the wheat 7 market. " There r"was ;. a
fair y\ speculative ; s~; business .in this
market -.during'the week :7 under ;
review, and prices ruled firm: from the be

and the close seller October was 2c. higher
than it closed; last week, November l^c.
higher, December lj^c. higher, and. year
2c. higher. The' receipts during the week
were % fair, . but there was a steady oat- -
ward movement, the shipments e3**feeeding
• the 7 receipts -by -over: 125,000 '. bushels.
Strong .-'. parties : were believed to be -still
in : the deal,' and '■* determined' to \ hold the
market, and possibly force prices up. This
has a tendency to keep the shorts' a" little
nervous, and, while they bought quite free
ly," there was bat little disposition to sell,
and hence the market was gradually ■■. bid *
up, though at no time was . there 7 any'" ex
citement. Bat the unsettled and buoyant
feeling in the corn market was perhaps
the most direct cause for the firmness in
wheat. There was a brisk speculation in *
corn all the week, attended with - a good
deal of excitement and a sharp advance, and
the effect .'was-felt in nearly all other
speculative markets, wheat sympathizing
more closely than any other. The visible
supply of this grain at latest ) dates . was
13,946,000 bushels against 13,149,000 bush
els the week previous, and 20,176,000 bush
els for the corresponding week a year ago.
The amount of flour.received for the week ;
was 5,790 barrels; shipped-88,707 barrels.
Received for the corresponding timo last
year, 126,729 barrels; shipped 109,4-18 bar
rels. This market was more " active, and
trading for the week heavier, and with the
tone of ' the market improved from what
it has been ever since the moving of the
new crop. This condition and favorable
change - has . been brought about by the
slow moving of the new crop of wheat and
the scarcity o' the more desirable j brands
of flour, and an improved demand for the
same, and dealers are more - hopeful as to
the future of the market. The home
trade have been buying ; quite * freely, and
have kept the market well clear :of the
finer Minnesota? and hard wheat, and of
the better:winters, with something of a
disposition on the part of these buyers
to 7 stock '• ■| up .and accommodate a
supply on hand rather than have the deal
er carry the goods as has been the case for
some months past.: Shippers and export
ers have been on hand, and . the foreign
buyers have taken more than usual of the
better export stock '* and the - low grades,
and the movement has bee much more free
than for foineimatiir past. ': ;.■:•« were
received during tiw wctk 34fc00-.) ,bushels
of corn and 983,000 bushels shipped
out of Chicago. ; During the-correspond-:
ing, week of. last year the receipts'
were . 2,113,000 bmshils ; and the*
shipments 1,826,000 bushels. j The amount
of corn in sight is 5,676,000 bushels against
8,650,000 bushels a week ago and 128,121,
-000 bushels for the corresponding week of
last year. These figures show why high
prices can now be so easily forced in the
face of a threatened extraordinary crop.
During the week this market was charac
terized by much activity, attended by con- :
siderable excitement and higher prices,
and at the close cash No. 2, or October,
was t 6^c i higher than last week.
November 4%c higher; January. 3}^o
higher year sj^c higher, and May 2 \^c
higher. The principal .cause of the ad
vance has been
to ' which reference was made last week,
which it was believed had been formed for
the purpose of cornering the market or at
least "squeezing" the shorts. The combi
nation was represented to be very strong,
and during the entire week the: members
of it were liberal purchasers. ' The shorts,
in view of the situation, became extremely
nervous and began" to buy in freely,
and ' finding themselves in competition
with 7. the bulls, 7 ; were" compelled
. to bid prices up in order to get what they
wanted. - The October option advanced the
. most, but all other options showed a good
■ deal of improvement, year .being especial
ly strong. The light receipts favored the
bulls very materially, being only 340,000
bushels against; 2,118,000 bushels for the
corresponding week last year, and nearly
650,000 bushels - less than the shipments
during the week. Besides, there were J re
ports that the crop had been greatly over
estimated,, some publications putting the
estimate only at two-thirds of the average.
All these influences combined to excite the
market and bring about the improvement:
The "milking" process, " : which almost \ ■ al
ways ; attends : incipient . corners,' was ' not
wanting, and there were occasional breaks,
some of them very decided, but were invar-'
iably followed by an up turn in prices, the
: reaction .generally going higher ! than be- ;
fore the break..-«."- 7 ';

; ;Bbaineb», Oct. 16.—Hartley" s. hall was
fairly, jammed to-night with Kindred men,
who listened to Nelson, Judge"'.; Reynolds, i
Gilman and Thundering Gordon. While" 1
the crowd paid strict attention to ail the
speakers, not a single vote was made for
the reason that Gilman gave the crowd a
little breeze that was too mild to mention.
Gordon spoke about ah hour, with a.' glass ,
of water in one hand and a daily Globe in
the other. He , endeavored to explain
away some of his crooked transactions,and
abused severely "all the newspapers. |He
said Kindred never held any public | office,

which he should come before the people as

■ Kindred Rally at Ada.
fSj»cial Telegram to the Glob?.] ...
Under the auspices of the Kindred club
of Ada there was a grand Kindred rally- at
Ada to-night. The .brass band was out
early, and discoursed stirring ; airs. The
large village hall was crowded with a re
spectable ' and attentive " audience, Col.
Geo. Johnston had been announced to
speak, but for business reasons could not
be present, Ma j. D. C. Stall, of j Ortonville,
and W. W. Hartry? of Brainerd, made the
addresses. Mr. J. V. Campbell presided,
and introduced the speakers, Maj. Stall's
address was a review of the. disreputable
tactics of the Nelson gang before and at
the Detroit convention. He gave Thunder
ing Gordon and the thieving Minneapolis
pine land a thorough going over in his own
peculiar . and. forcible r style.' Kindred's
connection with the Northern Pacific Rail
road, company was very. satisfactorily ex
plained. 'Mr. Stall concluded with an
eloquent \ peroration on the lights and
duties of citizenship, and the necessity of'
people to set down hard on this I man Nel
son, and his scheming ] brothers. 7 Wm.
Hartly then made a short address, mainly
devoted to proofs •of the legality of ; Kin
dred's nomination, and the mestir>g rid- \
journed with great enthusiasm. "
