The Evidence Before the Coroner's Jury Proves Conflictin';. BUT IT ESTABLISHES HIS COMPLICITY IN THE STAGE ROBBERY. AND SHOWS THAT MARTIN OBETED ORDERS. Comment*, speculations, Etc. “JC vents crowd thick and fast,” is an old quotation that might aptly be applied to F.ureka just now. The fire furnished food for a nine duy*’ gossip, and hud not ceased to be a matter of interest ere the daring feat of Sullivan and Ennis, and its tragical finale, startled even those accustomed, through long year* of residence on the coast, to such scenes. On the street cor ners, hotels, saloons and homes it has formed the all-absorbing theme, and ths general verdict is that while both possessed the dare-devil spirit of a Dick Turpin or a Claude Duval, neither possessed an iota of their judgment or discretion. It has been claimed that had they quietly returned to town after the fciniye Robbery, (It is now indisputably proven that Bulli van At least participated in that), and re mained in their old haunts, no suspicion would have been aroused, aud they would have escaped detection, and it lias been a matter of Bin prise and speculation as to what induced them to pursue the fool hardy and dangerous course they did. Their action was doubtless induced by an iucidcut which goes to show how a guilty conscience, combined with a trilling atlair, may turn the current of events and lead to such tragical results as that of Wednesday morning. After the stage robbery Sullivan and bis companion evidently skirted the hills and entered tlie town in the neighborhood of the Richmond furnaces, and sought Dor land4* saloon. Th y naturally concluded that intelligence of the robbery had reached Eureka shortly after it* occurrence, and of course were not aware that tlie stage had continued on its way to Ruby Hill, and that the news wus afterward brought from the Hill. Upon entering the saloon the first man encountered was Fr»d. Gorman, ar.d his presence at such an hour and under such circumstances w as sufficient to arouse their suspicions, and they left hastily. It is evident that they proceeded immediate lv to the stable, and their actions there and subsequently show th* t they regarded their case as a desperate one, and on the im pulse of the moment took a desperate man’s chances. Gorman’s presence un doubtedly led thiM’i to suppose that they were under surveillance, and liable at any moment to b<* arrested with the stolen property in their possession. On no othe r hypothesis can their desperate action be accounted for. Til® Inquest. Messrs. W. ]I. Remington, Frank Dor kee, P. N. Ilans^n, M. 13. Bartlett. J. G Ford and Charles Moore were selected as a jury, anJ at 11 o’clock, in company with Coroner Smith, proceeded to Schwa mb's dead hon e, and examined Sullivan's re mains. The ball had entered the back just below tho right shoulder blade, and passed out near the right nipple, and shows that Martin must have be« n in a direct line with him when the shot wax fhed. After viewing the remains the Coroner ami jury adjourned to the Grand Jury room to hear tho evidence. Mr. Bartlett \»aa chosen Foreman and tho Sentinel's local Seen tary. I’oiutM t:*(a3>H*he h The testimony of Deputy Sheriff Simp son and Messrs. McKee and Martin, who aided ns hi* posse, simply corroborated each other, tud tho main points were all published in yesterday’s Sentinel. Simp son stated that finding that Ennis would escape if the pursuit of Sullivan was kept up, called out to Martin, who was in a'. vauce, to ‘ drop him.” Martin, acting un der authority of a recognized r of the law, obeyed the order, and sh >t him down. All three of his pursuers had called upon Sullivan to half, and his death was the result of his refusal. The evidence of other parties was not so clear, and shows that fcometh’ng ix held hack that may he developed in Ennis’ trial. James Cassidy testified that he knew both men in Bodie. and while he re garded Sullivan as a ijnit r. peaceable man. against whom nothing had ever been said, ho had an entirely ditfereut opinion of Ennis. Since tin it arrival in town he had no connection with either, save to a-ssist Sullivan occasionally, financially, and in Ins capacity as proprietor of a saloon. He also testified that early in the evening of the robbery, Sullivan asked him the loca tion of the cabin of James Campbell, stat ing at the same time that Le desired to get something to eat. A 4f*itk»liou of Veracity. Campbell was hunted up, and upon tak ing the stand, disclaimed any personal acquaintance with Sullivan, further than that he had n et h in in a saloon once or twice,but had never furnished him any tiling to cat, nor had he ever been in his cabin. Cassidy was then r« called, atnl sai l that Campbell had admitted to him that Sulli van had cooked hia supper in his cabin upon the evening of the robbery, but that he was asleep and knew nothing of it. That a man should go to tho cabin of a stranger to cook a meal is incomprehensi ble, and that the proprietor of the cabin should allow such a proceeding, or that h should continue to sleep for such a length of time, and then admit to Ca»sidv that he I knew of it. and afterwards deny it on the stand, is equally strange,* and will open a trail that may lead to important develop ments in the future. Hansen, the driver of tho stage, gave evidence that would scarcely stand the tist of a cross-examination at the hands of any lawyer. He was o’early honest in his conviction that Sullivan was one of the parties who robbed the stage, but could give no satisfactory reason for bis belitf. Tho moon was olwcured at the time, and all the men were masked. NiiIIIyhii'm Complicity In the robbery, however, is indisputably proven, as the watch taken from Barney Kane, who was a passenger on the stage, was found upon his body. After hearing the evidence, the jury re turned a verdict that Sullivan’s dentil was caused by a pistol shot at the hand of Wm. Martin, and that the latter acted under the«instructions of a law officer, and there fore no blame could attach to his actiou. The Victim <*n:l Trimmer. John Sullivan was f'om Lowell, Mass., where his wife and two children still re side ; Ennis, who claims to have known l.irn a long time, says lie was about 33 years old, and his appearance would not indicate that he was older. He was about five feet eight Inches iu height, with a physiognomy that phrenologists would term a good one, and hair that grow in wild profusion, and presented the appear ance of a wig. All the testimony adduced before the Coroner's jury, ami informa tion gleaned from friends, whs to the effect that he was never considered a bad man, was not addicted to intemperate habits, and never quarrelsome. Hit* family is said to lie a respectable one, and his venture to have been the result of desperation, growing out of bis inability to obtain em ployment. This argument will scarcely hold good at a time when workmen are iu demand be-e. He wu buried by Schwarob lust evening. Charles Ennis, bis companion, chums to bo a native of New Hampshire, is twenty seven yean olu. about five feet six inches in height, and has a countenance that would send the hand of any honest man to his pocket-book. He has been on the coast about nine years, and came to Eu reka, in company with Hullivau, from Winnemucca, about three weeks ago. He was a brake man on the Virginia and Truckce railroad for about two years, and afterward worked in one of the Bodia mints. Wllllntn ffartlu, Who shot Sullivan, is one of the best known men in our community. He is careless and rough in appearance, is noted as a quiet, inoffensive but courageous man, who never sought a quarrel .uni who nev« r avoided an enemy, and is one of the best shots on the coast. He has always | been a favorite among those who knew him b^-st. and the verdict of the jury ac quitting him of all blame wag hailed with general satisfaction. An Interview With The Sentinel’s representative had an interview with Ennis last evening, and questioned him in regard to his connec tion with the affair. Ho frankly admitted that the stealing of the horses was pre meditated, but denied all knowledge of the stage robbery. It bad been agreed upon by Hullivan and himself, he said, that they would relieve Htc wart of a couple of his best horses, with which they would get out of town, and they called at his stable on several occasions to examine his stock. This latter assertion was corrobor ated before the jury by the stable boy. i On the night of the robbery he was in | Buland’s saloon, when Sullivan came In and hastily said that they must leave Immedi ately. This surprised him, as it had not been tluir infc. ntion to leave for a day or two. Hullivan, however, insisted, and stated they would have to leave that night or not at all, and finally raid he was as well satisfied to leave theu as at any other time, and they started for the stable. They bad expected to encounter but one man, but met five, and this disconcerted their plans. After leaving town he had advised Hullivan to take to the bills, but the latier, who was acquainted with the country, objected, stating that they would leave the main road when reaching Railroad Canyon. Not knowing the ro*d, j he says he followed Sullivan’s guidance with' lit question. He told his story in an | unembarrassed, plausible manner, and is evidently shrewd enough to have decided upon his best line of defe nse, and having mapped it out has determined to stick to it. The charges upon which he will be tried will be robbery and grand larceny, the penalty for which is not less than five year*’ imprisonment, and maybe extended for life. At best, he has not au iuviting future before him. I'M K Dl fiT. Scrap* from I lie Nate-liooU of the Seuiliters Reporter. Johnny Kearns lias left Ruby Hill for Bodle.

The Palisade folks indulged in a Muy day picnic to the E. A P. Hay Ranch yes terday. A phasaut time was the result. Mr. H. B. McKee yesterday received the sad intelligence of the death of his sister in Missouri. “Misfortunes never come singly.” Judging from the amount of provisions Ed. Dean has bought for his lunch fco-mor row night, ho must expect to feed all the sufferers by the fire. The Clark street bridge is now open to the public, and from its structure, it is evi dent that Mr. Whitton does not propose that the county shall be put to the expense of buildiug another soon, barring Hoods aud fire. Architecture. Our town heretofore might will have been termed one of packing boxes, as much of the district burned was built in the early rush, little regard being had to architecture. A* the district has now proven a permanent one. our citizens are building a better class of houses thau here tofore. Mr. C. M. Beunett, whose plans were adopted by the late Board of Super visors for our Court-house, and who has designed and built some of the finest houses throughout the State and in Cali fornia, has located permanently among us, an 1 those contemplating building will save money by consulting with him at his office on Spring street near the Bateman street bridge. An In novation. Messrs. Reynold and Tickle some days since inaugurated a series of pigeon-shoot ing matches, on the flat between Eureka and Ruby Hill, and they have been well uttended by those who claim to be crack marksmen.

The act of the last Legislature establish ing a home for old and worn out Navadans has been declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, borry for it. RELIEF, A Wise Movement on the Port of the Committee. A meeting of the Committee of Fifteen was held at the Court-house last evening, and the work of the Executive Committee was reviewed and favorably commented upon by several of its members. Judge Dave E. Baily moved that the thanks of the Committee be extended to the Executive Committee, composed of Messrs. Probert, Foley, Chamblin, Sadler and Baker, for the effective, efficient and noble manner in which they had discharged the duties intrusted to them, and, after some highly complimentary remarks, it was agreed to. A running discussion was kept up for some time, as to what disposition should be made of the goods yet on hand. Mr. Foley stated that what remained was not of a varied character, and that the Com mittee was put to heavy expeuse in assort ing them, in keeping a watchman, paying for drayage, etc., and stated that some thing would have to be done with them, as the Court-house would soon be needed for the District Court. It was finally agreed that the matter should be left with the Executive Committee, and they were au thorized to take such steps and dispose of the goods in such manner as they might deem best. What has troubled the Committee for some days, has been the large amount of beans and corn meal on hand, and a scarcity of other articles. This they will probably remedy, as several of our mer chants have offered to take the surplus of these articles off their hands, and allow the full amount that it would cost to bring them from the nearest point where they can be purchased. The Committee will then give orders on such merchants for certain amounts, and the merchants will furnish the holders with such goods as they may dehire at cost price. This is the best of the many excellent ideas advanced, as it will enable those in needy circumstances to buy a variety of necessary articles instead of taking a sack of meal or a hag of beans, and dieting on those two articles for a month or more. The Committee then adjourned, with tho understanding that they would again meet when anything should occur that might demand their attention. BTSISKSS BITS. Tidied Up During a Day'* Tramp Arouiail Town. L. Hynes, the tailor, is building a resi dence and chop on Clark street near the bridge. Mr. 8. G. Humphreys has ordered a large stock of drugs, and will reopen as a dispensary on Monday next. Gregovich is in receipt of some cherries, string beans and other tempting and sea sonable fruits and vegetables. Uncle George Thachor yesterday had his losses on the ‘Corner ” adjusted. We be lieve it is liis iuteution to rebuild imme diately. Ennis has serious objections to con founding him with others of the same name, and enters his protest under the head of “New To-day." Morris Brothers will reopen the Eureka saloon on Saturday morning. They have made many improvements over the old place, and will make it additionally attrac tive for their customers. Luther Clark is arranging to pnfc up a a two-story building on the site of the old Palace Saloon. He will occupy the upper story himself, as a sa’oon, and rent the lower portion for some other business. A number of burglar-alarm drawers was received by Mr. W. II. Remington yester day. They are a sure safeguard against burglary, and their cheapness should com mend them to merchants and others. Charley Lovitch, the tailor and repairer of clothing, lost his all in the tire. He has | opened a shpp in the rear of the jail, and j persons wishing to have their clothes reno vated should give Charley a helping hand. Iliram Johnson was busily engaged yes terday in superintending the removal of goods from his warehouse to his new store. In a day or two more, he says, he will lie able to supply the entire town with gro ceries. There were sufficient provisions and gro ceries piled up in front of W. II. Clark’s establishment yesterday to have tilled an ordinary building. The amount of goods j he receives almost daily is conclusive evi dence that business is brisk in liis line just now. Brown. Tassel A Co. have added largely to their stock the past few- days, and have received some of the finest goods ever brought to Eureka in the boot and shoe line. Their stock of ladies’, misses’ and children’s boots and shoes is especially large, and should be examined by those de siring to purchase. The International. Uncle Dave Hall has about concluded to rebuild the International Hotel. lie is negotiating for the lot of F. 0. Swenson, just north of him. It is his intention to erect a'handsome two-story brick building, with the hotel above and stores below. Mr. C. M. Beiiuett, the architect, is engaged on the plans. The new International is to be one of the finest buildings iu town. Uncle I Dave is a pioneer and proposes to stay by i the town. He does not believe that ho can | fiud a better place than Eureka. Molatcsta A Liggett threw their new saloon open to the public last evening, and there was u continual stream of callers all night long, who called to wish the firm all manner of good luck and a prosperous future. Both members are clever, accom modating gentlemen, and, as their new j building is one of the best, and their stock j of liquors first-class, their place will take 1 rank as one of the leading resorts in the \ town. They deserve all the success with which they may meet, end none wish it more heartily than the Sentinel. Hiange of Proprietor*. The White House clothing store has changed hands, Mr. A. Berwin stepping down and out, and Mr. M. Davidson taking possession. The new proprietor is an old California merchant, and has several es tablish unnu in that State. While we are sorry to part with Mr. Berwin, we are glad to know his place will he supplied with such an enterprising man as Mr. David son is rt presented to be. — .. -— The First. Public Administrator Smith has applied for letters of administration upon the es tate of Tcm Pan, a Chinaman, who, it is supposed, has no relatives living in this | section, and the ca e will be heard ou Mon day, May 10th.
