From the Berlin "Medical Gazette :
"Dr. Souvielle, by his invention of the

The I.aet Meenes of tke Tragedy as
Belated by Mrs. Chisolm.
On Monday we published a chapter of
Mrs. Chisolm's recital of the murder of
her husband, daughter and son, and to
day we give the concluding part of her
Now I called to my husband to go in
to a cage till I could see what to do.
The lionse was filled with the smoke of
the guns. I ran down stairs to see
what the mob were at. Cornelia hung
to her father. Clay hovered over John
nie. "Bill" Gully had squatted down,
with his ooat off, and seemed to bs
lighting matches. He oalled to me
and said, "any ot you wbowantto come
out do so now. We are going to burn
the house; it's afire now." I asked him
what for; I ran hack and wanted to ex
change clothes with Mr. Chisolm. I
begged him onoe more to bldg till I
could carry Johnnie out to keep him
from being burned, and starting out
with Johnnie I charged him to stay till
I eould see what to do.
1 went down the stairway and down
the hall to the outer door ; then I saw
the demons oouiing back with fresh
guns, headed by him who, in bis dev
ilish propensities, has put Satan to
shame long since. I called to Clay to
let us lay Johnnie
back to his father. I turned and was
dismayed to see him (my husband)
coming down bolding a gun in his
hand, the breech foremost, Cornelia,
nearly fainting, followed with her
head resting on her father's shoulder,
her arm around his neck, his arm
around her waist. I called out, "Path
or, what are yon goiDg to do ?" He
said, "To take my boy home." I oall
ed to him to go hack, the mub was re
turning. Cornelia bad begged him lo
come down, I afterward learned, tell
ing him "Bud Jnhunie" had died easy
—that it was better to be shot to death
than burned alive.
Jnst as I turned and sawmy husband,
"Charlie" Rosenbaum passed him ou
the stairs. "Why, Charlie," said he,
"arc you going to forsake me f" "Well,
I don't know, .Judge, what better we can
do; they Bay the bouse is on fire." I
ran Iff the foot of the stairs, racing with
lienry J. Gully, who, I was already
]>ositlve, had shut both Mr. Gilmer and
MoLellan. Getting before Gully I just
bad time to slam the door and press
hard upon it, whon the mob surround
ed the outside door. They need not
have thought my hnBhand would run
from the whole of them. Henry Gully
looked on ms with an angry fury, and
put the guu within a few iuches of my
head, hut seeing the grate in the door,
ran it through at my husband. I
screamed to him to stoop quick so he
oould not shoot him in the head.
Cornolia jerked him suddenly down,
screaming and begging. Rememberthat
front her beautiful face even trom her
lips, the blood was oozing—even the
strings of her bonnet, under her chin,
were shut in two. Mr. Chisolm had no
chance to tarn his loaded gun. He
oalled, "Let me up, daughter," and
raising himself, met, within a few
incites, the gun. My daughter called
out: "Don't shoot my papa, my good
papa, who never did any harm, but lias
been good all the days of his life. Oh!
If you must have more blood, kill me;
I can't live without my papa." The
old demon turned the muzzle—she had
her pretty, soft, round, white arm
aroutul her father's neck, and pressed
her whole person before him. Gully
pnt tlte gun to iter arm, and pulling
the trigger, pul the whole load of bails
iuto her arm.
My husband pressed against the
door, calling to me to let him out. 1
always did as he told me. He passed
out. Gully discharged the other load
in my husband's hip. The boy who
hail been active in handing guns all
day was ready at his elbow with
another. I tried to keep it from Gully,
but could not. Gully at once dischar
ged lioth loads into my husband's body
and rau back to the door, Mr. Cbieolm
wavered from side to side, almost hav
ing to balance himself with his hands.
There wero some goods back in the
ball. I cried to Mr. Chisolm to get
behind them. "I'hil" Gully ran out
of a eide room with a heavy stick he
was in the habit of carrying, and see
ing that Mr. Chisolm conld barely hold
himself up, ran to strike him down
with liia club.
1 sprang forward and asked him what
he was going to do, but bsfore he could
strike Gully put auother load iuto his
hip, and "Bob" Mosely, shooting from
the steps, put one load iD. that made
the largest hole of all. My husband
several times said to me afterward, as
he put his hand on his leg, that that
wound was the one that was killing
him. I can't tell how many wounds
were mortal. He was wounded in all
the internal organs, lie fell, and the
moli retreated. I fell down over him.
Of course 1 was covered with blood, hut
not iny own—the blood of husband and
children. Said my husbanJ : " My
whole family are murdered ; you and
Clay are covered with blood ; Johnnie
dead, Cornelia killed ; hut, precious
wife, if any* of my ohildren should live,
tell them I die an innocent man; their
father never harbored a thought or did
a deed for which they need blush. I
die for my country,and because I would
be a freeman and a Republican."
Cornelia fell over him, and he, kissing
Iter, said, "My poor baby, you are
killed." "No, I am not, papa," she
said. "Yes (laughter, yon are shot iu
your arm." Ami, papa?" And this
was the first she knew, though a heavy
gold bracelet had been severed and
driven through her ar it. 3he arose,
and Clay sank down, taking his father's
head on his knees. I ran to the door
and asked if there was a man in the
town who would help me carry my bus
band borne—telling them they had
killed Johnnie and my husband and
shot Cornelia to death, and I could not
carry them all. I saw a body of men
coming, and ran hack to him. "Bil"
Gully was ahead this time to shoot what
he thought another dead man, but I
snatched the gun that had fallen from
Mr. Chisolm's bauds; and raising it,
stood between him and the mub.
Tlte idea that there was even that
much to meet him frightened "Bill"
Gully, and for a moment he Btopped.

Not Mr. Kennedy.
An article published on Frida? Iasi
in reference to gambling and dissipa
tion among a gang of young men on
the lots at 13th and Wilson, has bad a
beneficial effect; it has stirred these gen
try up as we intended it shonlddo auu
it has also sent the polioe into that
neighl»orhood on Sunday. The "gang"
are greatly exercised that their Sunday
amusements have been interfered with,
and are blaming Mr. James Kennedy,
who resides at Thirteenth and Wilson
with having informed on them. Such
is not the case,the reporter of the Re
publican obtained hir. information from
some ladies who had been insulted by
the gang and not from Mr. Kennedy.
In conversation with that gentleman
yesterday, however,he informed us that
hereafter lie would not only iuforin on
them but would also appear against
any of the gang he discovered violating
and desecrating the Sabbath in the man
ner they have heretofore done.

This morning about 8.30 the coroner

Mtand Point—The prospect. of
Hlo Vindication—Politic* and
Parties la Kansas.
Special Correspondence ot the Republican.
ToPfka, Kansas, Sept. 20th, '7!l.
Tliis is an oil' year iu Kansas politics,
but the intense feeliug that was the
ontgrowth of the Senatorial election of
last winter has not yet subsided and
the recent elections in Maine and Cali
fdrjnia have stirred up the political
Wind so that party feeling is just at
present at a high state of fetmenta
The Ingalls investigation begins on
Monday of next weok and the Capitol
is already full of legislators, lawyers,
witnesses and others who expect and
are to figure iu this, Kansas first good
big investigation. Mr. IngallB the
principal figure in the sensational mud
dle arrived in the city this morning
and Senators Sualsbury, Vance aud
Cameron (Wis.) came in thto afternoou
the balance of the committee is expect
ed ti -night.
I have had as yet no chanoe to talk
with any of the members of the com
mitteebut know about how public opin
ion regards the situatiou. Senator In
galls has some of the finest lawyers iu
the State to represent him, prominent
among whom is ex-Attorney General
A. L. Williams,acknowledged to be the
first lawyer in Kansas.
Ingalls intends to make a strong fight
and will contest every inoh of ground
the proseoution brings forward, and as
he is a famous organizer aud au unusu
ally shrewd aud acuie man it will take
the combined efforts ct his euemies to
unseat him.
This is the prosecution's second effort
to bring the Senator to grief. Doling
the latter part of the last session of the
Legislature a determined and weli
planned iuvestigation was had by a
joint committee of both houses, com
posed of a majority of anli-Ingall'smeu,
but while they conld trace and find
numerous instances of bribery aud cor
ruption, they did uot succeed in fasten
ing a single one of these cases npon Mr.
Iiig&il's personality.
Ingalls feels confident he will be vin
dicated or at least that the investigi
ling committee wilt fail to obtain suffi
cient evidence tossuslain the charges
against him. It is generally conceded
hers by men who were participants iu
the contest last winter that Ingalls or
hi* friends used mouey lavishly to se
cure his re-election, as high as two
Ihonsaud dollars being paid iu one or
two iuiiances for the vole aud influence
of promiuent members; hut whether
these facts cau he traced directly to In
galls remains for the committee to de
As money was used by ex-Governor
AulbO'.y and Chief Justice Horton, the
only c lo r candidates for Senatorial
honor , the sympathies of the majority
of the i>ersous who are interested arc
in Ingalls favor. It is generally couue
ded that be has been the most val lia
ble Senator to the State and has done
more ior its advancement and improve
ment than any other we have ever had.
Ingalls is a favorite in Washington and
is generally liked by both parties: Sen
k'.or Sauisbury being one of his warm
est friends, and all KaDsans there as
well as political circles in general, are
anxious for bis vindication.
Of course there is some talk of a con
viction, and in that event the question
of succession will fie one of interest; it
is the genera! opiuion that Gov. St.
Jehu will appoint ex-Gov. Anthony to
the vacancy should Mr. Ingalls be un
seated, as Anthony has strong claims
upon St. Johu, he being the direct
means of securing to St. John the gov
ernorship. incidental to the invesli
gstion is a great deal of political talk,
a prominent subjeot being the Ivesi
denlia) campaigu of next year. Grant,
of course, has a large following, and
whenever iris name is mentioned it i.
received with applause. It Is thought,
though, by a great many that Grant
will not allow his name to be put for
ward for the office, and this element ot
tlie parly are in that case pretty even
ly divided betweeu Sherman and
Kausas is such a thorough Repnldi
can State that very little is ever said
atiout Democrats and the Democracy,
i Cud Bayard is a general favorite and
the first clioioe of the better element of
the party. Tilden is seldom mentioned
■n other than sneering and disrespect
ful terms. Thurman I have never hea-d
mentioned, while the Greenbackers and
their party are absolutely dead beyond

We notice by the evening jontDito
that a movement has been started to
legislate Hr. Macal lister out of niaplace
as Solicitor to the city by the abolition
of the office. The city cannot do with
out a solicitor, and we never heard a
word derogatory to the fitness of the
preoent official. To abolish the offioe
and then re-oreate it, under another
name, would belittle Council, by doing
by indirection what the members fear
'o do openly. We were opposed to the
extension of the term of office, but as it
was extended, and a respectable gen
tleman elected to fill the position, it
would bs a piece of small business to
dismiss him by a trick. We never
kuew of such small business as is pro
moted, to bring honor to the party en
gaged in the doing of it. We know
oothing beyond the newspaper rumor
f the matter, and we trust it may be
unfounded. The abolition of an efflee
filled by a competent incumbent because
he may differ in politics from the ma
jority of Council to make room for a
Democrat, is a pieoe of politioa! perse
cution which will do infinite harm to
the promoters. To the victors beioug
the 4 epoi1s does Dpt apply in this oaae,
liscanse there 1st no vaosnoy,—and to
make one, to apply the principle, is, to
4ur mind, unwise and uufair. Let well
enough alone, gentlemen!
