MR. IJARFIELD AND MR. TURNER,
WELL KNOWN MERCHANTS,
MURDERED IN COLD IILOOD

Between 8 and 9 o'clock this
morning Sheriff Hedge received a
telegram frcm Juliette stating that
Me srs. Barfield and Turner, the
well knon merchants cf that
place, had both been murdered
some time during last n'gbt and
the store robbed.
The3e two genfc'emen kept the
only genfral store in the place and
slept in a back room. They have
been in the habit of opening at
any hour of the night to people
from the phosphate mines.
It is supposed ths robbers were
admitted on a pretense cf buying
goods and then murdered the two
proprietors and plundered the
store. They were found about
7:30 this morning, both dead, ly
ing in the store-room, with eQ
dences of a terrible struggle..
The murderers made good their
escape but the officers are on the
trail. Sheriff Hodge left for
there at noon today and will do
his utmost to apprehend the mur
derers. McConnell's Bond.
This morning an interesting and
important document was received
by acting c!erk II. L. Crane, ot

A Small Fire.
Fire was discovered in. one cf
the vacant Hood cottages in the
first ward at 8 o'clock lastj night
and an alarm turned in. The
truck and hose wagons were soon
on a dead run up Ocklawahato the
fire, which was soon extinguished,
having only burned through the
floor and a little on the wall of
one room and the hall. Leaves
had been heaped under the house
and set to fke by some one with
The streets were very dark ar,d
the boys narrowly averted several
collisions, and on the return did
run into John Vereen's buggy,
smashing one wheel. The fire

without any light to guide them.
City Treasurer D. S Moody
when interviewed yesterday in
regard to a statement in yester
day's Times-Union about organ
izing a colony to emigrate to Mex
ico, declared that no such ide-a
ever entered his head and that the
statement has no foundation what
ever. J. A. Rowel I was also in
tcrviewed in regard to a statement
in th; sam : paper that told of his
emigrating to Honduras where he
will make his future home. H
said it was a fake from beginning
ty end and cannot conceive why
anyone shou'd stick such a thir
in thi pipir. Hi is not gji x to
