PROFESSOR LEONARD, _XT 316 1-2 SOUTH SPRIN3 ST., THE GREATEST LIVING MODERN SEER, Wishes to thank the public of Los Angeles for their generous patronage since his advent among them. Prof. Leonard has been consulted by many of the wise and learned skeptics of the world, who have left his presence wit'i minds filled with doubt, bewilderment and wonder. Many of our Los Angeles friends have been discussing the source of his powers. Some claim that he is a mind reader or a bypnotizer; others (of a more scientific turn of mind) tbat he is a telepathist or a thaumtiturgist; while our spiritualistic friends claim him as tbe greatest me dium the world has ever seen. The Professor's marvelous powerß are certainly beyond the comprehension of ordinary mortals. , A Man Who Can Accurately Diagnose Your Mental and Bodily Ailments, Can further tell you just what you have come to ree bim about without requiring you to open your iius to even pass the time of day, must, certainly be possessed of some strange power which distinguishes him from hia fellowman. His advice on matters of business is always correct. He foretells the results of lawsuits, specu lations, etc., and in matrimonial ventures his valuable aid has been the direct means of putting hundreds of coupleß on the right road to happiness and success. To show tbe people of Los Angelee his real sincerity in his great work, he will give sittings the remaining days of this week for $2. His advice and forecasts for the future are invariably correct. After Saturday next PROF. LEONARD will charge hie usual price for sittings, viz., |5.

TEN PAGES. THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 6, 1892. THE DALTON BOYS DEAD. Three of the Brothers Died in Their Boots. They Came to Grief in Making Their Last Raid. Two Other Members of the Gang; of Desperadoes Killed. Only One Escaped — A Daring; Double Bank Bobbery at OotTeyTllle, Kan sas, That Cost No Less Than Ten Lives. By the Associated Pres. Coffeyville, Kan., Oct. 5, —The Dal ton gang has been exterminated —wiped off the face of the earth; caught like rats in a trap. They were today shot down, but not until four citizens of this place had yielded up their lives in the work of extermination. Six of the gang rode into town this morning and robbed two banks of the place. Their raid bad become known to the officers of the law, and when the bandits attempted to escape tbey were attacked by tho marshal's posse. In the battle which ensued four of the desperadoes were killed outright, and one so badly wounded that be has since died. The sixth escaped, but ie being hotly pursued. Of the attacking party, four were killed, and one fatally and two seriously wounded. The dead are: Bob Dalton. deeper ado; Grattan Dalton, desperado; Em mett Dalton, desperado; Joseph Evans, desperado; John Moore, alias Texas Jack, desperado; T. C. Connelly, city marshal: L. M. Baldwin, a bank clerk; G. W. Cubine. a merchant; C, J. Brown, a shoemaker. The wounded are: Thomas G. Ayres, cashier of tbe First National bank, shot through the groin and cannot live; T. A. Reynolds, wounded in the right breast; Lais Detz, shot in the right side. THE RAID LONG ANTICIPATED. It was rumored a month ago that the Dalton gang were contemplating a raid upon the banks of the city. Arrange ments were made to give them a warm reception, but excitement finally died away, and the Btreet patrol was given up. About 10 o'clock thia morning tbe gang rode into town. Tbey came in two squads of three each, "and passing through unfrequent Btreets, rendez voused in an alley in the rear of the First National bank. Robert Dalton, the notorious leader, and Emmett, hie brother, went to the first national bank, the other four, under the leadership of Texas Jack, or John Moore, going to the private bank of C. M. Congdon & Co. In the mean time the alarm was given. The Dalton brothers were born and bred in this vicinity and had been recognized. HOW THE BANKS WERE HELD UP. City Marshal Connelly was quickly notified and began collecting a posse. While the marshal was assembling his forces the bandits, all ignorant of tbe trap, were proceeding deliberately with the work of robbing the banks. Texas Jack's band entered Congdon'B bank, and with Winchesters leveled at Cashier Ball and Teller Carpenter, demanded that tbe safe be opened. The cashier explained that the door of the safe was controlled by a time lock and could not be opened for about twenty minutes, or at 10 o'clock. "We'll wait," said the leader, and he sat down at the cashier's desk, first gathering up the money in the cash drawer. 808 AND EMMETT'S WORK. Bob and Emmett Dalton in the mean while were having better luck at tbe First National bank. When they en tered tbe bank they found Cashier Ayres, his eon, Albert Ayres and Teller W. H. Shepherd. None of them were armed, and with leveled revolvers the brother bandits easily intimidated them. Albert Ayres and Teller Shepherd were kept under the muzzle of Emmett Dalton's revolver, while Bob Dalton forced Cash ier Ayres to strip the safe vault and cash drawers of all the money, and place it in a sack. Fearing to leave them behind, lest they should give the alarm too soon, the desperadoes marched the officers of the bank out of the door, with the intention of keeping tbem under guard while they made their escape. The party made their appearance at the door just as Liveryman Spears and others of the marshal's posse took a position in the square. When the Dalton brothers aaw armed men in the square they appreciated their peril in an instant, and leaving the bank officers on tbe steps of the bank build ing, ran for their horses. 808 DALTON BITES THE DUST. As soon as they reached the sidewalk Spears' rifle quickly came into position. An instant later it spoke, and Bob Dal ton, the notorious leader of tbe notori ous gang, fell dead. > Emmett Dalton bad the start of his brother, and before Spears couli draw a bead on him, had dodged behind the corner of the bank and was making time in the direction of the alley where the horses were tied. The shot which dropped Bob Dalton aroused Texas Jack's band inCongdoa's bank. Running to the windows, they saw their leader prostrate on the ground. Raising their rifles they fired one volley out of the window. Cashier Ayres fell on the steps of the bank, shot through the groin. Shoemaker Brown, of the attacking party in the square, was shot through the body and died in a few minutes. The firing attracted the attention of Marshal Connelly, who was collecting more men for hie posse, and with those he had already gathered, he ran hur riedly to the scene of tbe conflict. After firing a volley from tbe windows, tbe bandits, appreciating tbat their only safety was iv flight, attempted to escape. They ran from the door of the bank, firing as they fled. The marshal's posse in tbe square, without organiza lion of any kind, fired at the fleeing bandits, each man for himself. SPEAKS' TRIED WINCHESTER spoke twice more in quick succession before the others of the posse could take aim, and Joseph Evans and Texas Jack fell dead, both shot through the head, making three dead bandits to his credit. In the general fusillade, Qrattan Dalton, ode of the two surviving mem bers of Texas Jack's squad, Marshal Connelly, L. M. Baldwin and George Cubine were mortally hit and died on the field. Allie Ogee, the only survivor of the band, successfully escaped to the alley where the horses were tied, and mounting the Bwiftest of the lot fled south, in the direction of Indian Ter ritory. . KMMETT DALTON BROUGHT DOWN. Emmett Dalton, who escaped from the First National, had already reached the alley in safety, but had some trouble in getting mounted. Se.veral of the posse quickly mounted and pursued the escap ing bandits. Emmett Dalton's horse W3s no match for the fresher animals of hiß pursuers. They closed on him; he turned suddenly in hie saddle and fired upon his would-be captors. The latter answered with a volley, and Emmett toppled from his horse, hard bit. He was brought back to town, and died late this afternoon. He made an ante-mor tem statement, confessing various crimes committed by tbe gang. ALL THE MONEY RECOVERED. After the battle was over search was made for tbe money the bandits had se cured from the banks. It was found in the sacks where it had been placed by the robbers. One Back waa found under the body of Bob Dalton, who had fallen dead on it while escaping from the First National bank. The other was tightly clenched in Texas Jack's hand. BODIES OF THE DEAD MEN. The bodies of those of the attacking party who were killed were removed to their respective homes, while the bodies of tbe dead bandits were allowed to re main where they had fallen until tbe arrival of the coroner from Independence, who ordered them removed to the court house, where he held an inquest, the jury returning a verdict in accordance with the facts. Daring the time the bodies remained in the square they were viewed by hun dreds of people from this and surround ing towns, who having heard of tbe tragedy, came in swarms to inspect the scene. The excitement was of a most intense character, and the fate of Allie Ogee, should he be captured, has been deter mined by universal consent. He will be hanged by the people. DIED WITH THEIR BOOTS ON. Among other topics which attracted universal comment were the fulfillment of the prophesy that the Daltona would' "die with their boots on ;" the peculiar fate wbich decreed that thfiy should die by the bands of their old friends in tbe vicinity of their place of birth, and the excellent marksmanship of Liveryman Spears, who with three shots Bent death to as many bandits. THE DALTONS' HISTORY. The Daltons were a numerous family; there were five boys and three girls. Of the boys two engaged in farming, one in Oklahoma, where their mother lives, and one near Coffeyville, where three of the brothers met their death today. The Daltons were second cousins to the noted James boys, and through them related to the Youngers, now serving life terms of imprisonment in the peni tentiary of Minnesota for train and bank robberies. Bob became a cattle thief when a mere boy, and was soon joined by his brother Orattan. They were finally run out of the country, and the next heard of them was in "California, where they took to train and stage robbing. After exciting experiences there they returned to Indian Territory, in the spring of 1889, when Oklahoma waß opened to settlement, securing a homestead for their mother, where she still lives. At the time of the opening of Oklahoma, Rob Dalton was a United States deputy marshal, being selected on account of peculiar fitness to deal with desperate characters. After the opening be returned to his life of outlawry, and he and Grattan were joined by their brother Emmett, the youngest of tbe brothers, Texas Jack and others of a desperate character. From this time their record as robbers of express trains and the perpetrators of other outrages is fresh in the public mind. EMMETT DALTON NOT DEAD YET. Later—Emmett Dalton is not dead. He is slowly dying in a room in a hotel here, and his death is expected at any moment. Indignation against the rob bers was bo intense this afternoon that tbe citizens wanted to lynch the dying bandit. To prevent this the coroner gave oat the statement that be was already dead. Up to 11 o'clock tonight, Allie Ogee was not captured. THEY HAD NO HIDDEN TREASURE. Late tonight an Pssociated Press rep resentative bad a talk with Emmett Dalton. He declared that the stories of tbeir hidden treasure are all nonsense. 'Tf we had bad bidden treasure," he said, "we would all be alive tonight. It was because we were all broke that we planned tbe Coffeyville raid. We were being hard pressed by the officers down in the territory, and Bob decided that we would have to get out of the country. He planned the robbery about two weeks ago, while we were camped in the Osage country. We tried to per suade him not to try it. He called us cowards—that settled it; we started." It waa with great difficulty that the bandit told the Btory, as he was suffer ing terribly from wounds in the side. The physician Bays he cannot possibly recover. Cashier Ayres is resting easier tonight. The Garfield Park Trouble. Chicago, Oct. 6.—Master in Chancery Barber today decided to recommend an injunction in the suit brought by the Garfield Park club, to restrain the city of Chicago from interfering with the racing.

Six Hundred Men Left Dead on the Field. Many High Government Officials Made Prisoners. The Kevolotlonltts' Triumph Complete. General Crespo Expected to Enttr Caracas Today—Foreigners In Jtopardy. By tho Associated Press. New Yop.K.Oct. 5.—A World LaGuay ra, Venezuela, cable, dated October sth, says: A desperate battle has just taken place at Los Teques. Six hundred men were killed, and many high government of ficials captured. Crespo struck another decisive blow, which, following upon his previous successes since the revolution began in last March, means victory for the Creßpists. Los Teques ia but ten miles from Caracas, and Crespo haa an nounced hiß determination to enter the capital tomorrow. From details received here, the fight was a most bloody one, 600 men being left dead on the field ot battle. Consid ering the size of the contending armies, this indicates Beiious fighting. The government forces were routed. Crespo had 14,000 men, including 6000 brought by General Colino. Tne revolutionist general possessed twelve pieces of artillery and had the assistance of several Americans, be sides General Widener, a German, and General Betalli, au Italian. . General Pulido, uncle oi the acting president, was in command of the gov ernment forces, numbering 6000, and went to Los Teques, to repel Crespo'a advance. This defeat robß the acting president of his army. All the govern ment officials at Los Teques, and those accompanying the presidential army, are reported prisoners in Crespo'a camp. Crespo has made a formal demand for the surrender of the capital. He has backed up hie demand with the an nouncement that he intends to enter Caracus tomorrow at the head of the regolutionary army. La Guayra ia still in the hands of the government, but cannot hold out against the victorious Crespiatsif Caracas opens its gates. Foreigners are now in jeopardy. It , may be impossible to control the mnr derously inclined populace and the ruf fir.n element of the soldiery, Americans may, however, feel some what secure, as the Chicago ia close in port, ready to protect Uncle Sum's sub jects. RUMORS AT THE STATE DEPARTMENT. Washington, Oct. 6 —It waa rumored about the state department this after noon that news had been received from Venezuela to the effect that a disturb ance had again broken out, and tbat the etate of affairs was bo serious as to re quire the continuance on the coast of Admiral Walker's fleet. Nothing can be learned from the officials of the de partment, and the advices received in dicate a Budden change in the situation, as a cablegram received yesterday from Admiral Walker stated that everything | was quiet. LATEST ADVICES BY STEAMER. New York, Oct. 5.-The steamship Venezuela arrived from La Guayra thiß afternoon. According to the news she biings, the long struggle in Venezuela is nearing the end and will result in the overthrow of the government, which made such a persistent fight. Colino had joined forces with Crespo, and they were advancing on Caracas. Crespo has possession of every city and stronghold except Laa Pegues, Maracaibo and Ca racus. At Las Pegues the revolutionists expected to fight the decisive battle. It ia the best fortified place the govern ment troops hold, and General Palido is there with 6000 soldiers. On the 28th ult. there waa a battle between the revo lutioniats and government troops at Macuto, in which the revolutionists were defeated. When the Venezuela left La Guayra, the 19th ultimo, the revolutionists were looking along the coast for the steamer South Partland, which sailed from New York Borne time ago with a cargo of arms. Apparently no effort was being made to get hold of the six political refugees seized by General Urdaneta on board the steamer Caracas in the harbor of Puerto Cabello several weeks ago. Neither Admiral Walker nor Minister Scruggs knows just where the six men now are. The government does not know where the refugees are. The man who seized them is now in opposition to the government. Reports are current, however, that the six refugees are hav ing a hard time in the dungeons of Fort San Carlos, at Maracaibo. Their mends say they are being very badly treated, in addition to being half starved. From accountc given by passengers of the Venezuela, it appears that the cap tain of the Spauit-h gunboat Jorge Juanis is running things to suit himself in the harbor and city of La Guayra. The captain, it seeme, gives protection to everp foreigner who needs it, and, as the result, ia highly popular with the foreign element in La Guayra. The officers of ships speak of him in terms of unstinted praise. The Spaniard took it upon himself, among other things, to protect American ships from many petty annoyances thrust upon them by the customs authorities. When the Venezvla arrived in La Guayra there was trouble about land ing. The customs authorities refused to allow the ship to land unless she de posited ber register in the custom house. Captain Hopkins refused to give up the register, but turned it over to the American consul. Then, with the captain of the Spanish gunboat on board, Captain Hopkins pulled into the breakwater. The Spaniard then suggested that the captein should call for help from the American men-of-war. A signal waß run up and hardly had it got to the peak when a PRICE FIVE CENTS. boat dropped into the water from the Chicago, and 35 marines tumbled into it. The marines soon had possession of the Venezula'e deck, and there was no further trouble. WKiVKB GROWING BOLD. He Will Speak at Puluskl, Kogardlesa of Consequences. Nashville, Term., Oct. s.—Gsn.

Springer of Illinoiß, charging him with misuse of wool statistics. He sent a copy of the letter to the Illinois State Journal of Springfield. GEORGIA HEARD FROM. SHK ROLLS DP AN OLD-FASHIONED DEMOCRATIC VICTORY. The State Ticket Elected by About 50,000 Majority—The Populist Vote a Mere Bagatelle, and the Republican Nil. Atlanta, Ga.,Oct. s.—Georgia today elected a governor and other state of ficers and a full general assembly. Two full tickets were in tbe field, the straight Democratic and People'a party. The Republicana have simply a national electoral ticket and will throw the state yote to tho People's party. The Democratic ticket was headed by Hon. W. J. Northen for governor, and the People's party by Hon. W. L. Peck. The day opened beautifully, and reports from every part of the Etate pronounce the vote the heaviest in many years. Returns from 75 counties "out of a total of 137 give the Democratic ticket a majority of more than 30,000. There Beems little doubt that the majority will reach 50,000 when the vote of all the counties is in. The third party will probably carry six to eight counties for the legis lature, and their strength will be about 20 members of the house, out of 175. The third party leaders concede not less than 30,000 Democratic majority at 11 p. m. Columbus, Ga . Oct. s—The election in this district passed off quiet.lv. It thia county the Democratic majority will be between 12,000 and 15.000. A vast majority of tbe intelligent negroes cast a Democratic ballot. Marion county, where the third party was considered very strong, has given a handsome Democratic majority. Reports from various counties in the fourth district show a Democratic majorit7. Muscogee gives over 12,000 Democratic majority. The Democrats are firing cannon and ringing bells, and are jubilant generally. The state ia safe for the Democrats by about 40,000 majority. Savannah, Ga.. Oct. s.—The total vote of this county is 3250, of which the third party polled only 200. Governor North en and the entire state ticket have 30C0 majority. The colored Republicans re pudiated the deal with the third party by the leaders, and openly voted the straight Democratic ticket. INDIAN VOTERS. Sisseton Bucks Show Tuelr Aptness for Politics. Sisseton, Oct. s.—The Indian voters on this reservation, to the number of about 400 were initiated into the politics of their native land yesterday, a council being held at which they considered their future course in the field of politics. Rev. Charles Crawford, Senator Pettigrew, Major Dickler, and a number of chiefs spoke. The council was really called by the Republican coun ty committee. It is surprising to see how apt the Indians are proving. An examination of affairs developed the fact that schemes are on foot that would do credit to the most experienced poli ticians. AFTER THIRTEEN YE Alts. The Last Chapter in the Colebrated Sharon Case. San Francisco, Oct. s.—After drag ging through the courts over 13 years, the Sharon case was finally Fet tled today, when the supreme court of the state dismissed the appeal that had been taken by Sarah Althea Terry from the judgment rendered by the late Judge McShafter in August, IS9O, which judgment was the granting of the petition of Sharon's executors that tbe alleged mar riage contract between William Sharon and Sarah Althea Hill be declared a forgery. Not Going to Fnse. Yankton, S. D., Oct. 5. —The Demo cratic state central committee baa forwarded to the secretary of state, as required by law," certifi cated of tbe nominations made by the Democratic state convention. This settles the question of fusion in South Dakota. The etate is believed to be surely Republican. Ordered to Redondo. San Diego, Oct. s.—Orders have been received instructing the commanders of the cruisera Charleston and Baltimore to sail Friday morning for Redondo. The four days' drill which had been planned for tbe local company of naval reserves must be deferred. Florida Election Returns.
