The Berry Case. The preliminary hearing of Bob Flvecoats, charged with killing Will Berry on the 16th Inst was held before squire Stevens Wednesday. A num ber of wlttDesses were examined. The evidence all went to show that Berry was drunk and disorderly; that he insulted some ladles at the depot; that with a car pin he cleaned out the depot and threatened any one who would touch him; that he said that if city marshal Gilchrist attempted to arrest him, one or the other would die; that he knocked the marshal down three times in front of the Can dy Kitchen; that city marshal Gil christ called on Bob (meaning Bob Flvecoat) to help arrest Berry; that Berry cursed all the parties who were trying to land him in the cooler; that Fivecoat did not molest him until after Berry had knocked him down and was trying to get the revolver away from him swearing that he would get him (Flvecoat) yet. There is no question but Berry was a bad man; that he was crazy drunk and in a fighting humor and afraid of no one. The testimony of the witnesses for the state and defense did not differ ma terially. County Attorney Cline and John J. Jones appeared for the state and C. A. Cox for Fivecoat. The trial lasted all afternoon; num' erous witnesses swore that in his con dition, no two men could have taken him without hurting him. After the evidence was in Judge Stevens bound Flvecoat over to court In the sum of $1000. No one expects Fivecoat to be convicted in court, but in case the cause comes on regularly for trial and a jury finds that it was a case of Justi fiable homicide it will end the matter for all time and this will probably be the best way out of It. The Joints continue to run but street riots are less numerous than they were a few weeks ago. Report Cards; For district schools for sale at this office. tf, Ringling's Circus. One of the largest crowds ever seen in Chanute, came in Monday to seethe circus. Some came the day before and soon after daylight Monday morning. the streets were crowded by those who desired to see the great circus. They were not disappointed for it was the largest circus ever seen in town. The different tents covering something like ten acres of ground. People were here from the vicinities of Humboldt, Buf falo, Fredonla.Thayer.Galesburg, Erie, Stark, Savonsburg and intervening points. They saw a very fine show and went home well satisfied. While the crowd was a mammoth one, it would have been much larger if we had got ten a good rain within the past month. As it is, many farmers are kept busy hauling stock water and could not come. One of the pleasing features was the lack of fakirs, who usually follow the shows. There were no shell games, no electric belts, no soap fakirs, for all of which the people feel thankful.
