Minister F.nrgent Transferred from Berlin to tie Court of St. Ietrt.bui-t His CuurM Complimented by the President. Washington. IV C, March 27. The nomination of Sargent to In. Minister to Russia was a total surprise to most persons at the Capitol yesterday. It was not delivered to the Senate until after Secre tary Frellnghuysen had spent an hour or more at the Capitol for the purpose, it is conjectured, of preparing leading mem bers of that body for its reception. When it was laid before the Senate in executive session a few questions were asked and briefly answered to the effect that the transfer, though not requested or even suggested by Minister Sargent, would doubtless be agreeable to him, and would also undoubtedly be pro ductive of good results a a matter of National policy, although la wh.it man ner w as not stated nor asked. The Senate, therefore, accepting these assurances of members of the Foreign Relations Com mittee, confirmed the nomination by unanimous consent. There is good reas on for believing the action of the Senate was based not only on a belief that Sar gent's transfer (which in European esti mation is diplomatic promotion) would be agreeable to him aud avert the possi bility of further unpleasantness arising from personal hostilities, but also upon the prevalent impression that the position of the American Minister at the court of Berlin will significantly, and for an in definite time, be left vacant. KOTIVIKO. Secretary Frelinghuysen sent the fol lowing telegram to Minister Sargent last evening : Washington, D. C . V. S. A., March 2. SAiiGt-.NT, Minister, Berlin The Presi dent approves entirely your course in the Lasker matter; you have done nothing but obey the instructions of this Govern ment therein. The President, thinking it may be agreeable to you, to-day nom inated you as minister to St. Petersburg, aud your nomination, without reference to :iny committee, was immediately and unanimously confirmed by the American Senate. This action manifests the appre ciation of your worth, and does you the honor of which any citizen may well be proud. Signed Fmklingh ittsbn. A COWARDLY CRIME. An Estimable Citizen and Offierr ot Use Peace Murdered in Cold lJle I by an Illi. unis Desperado. Winohkstkk, Ii.i... March 27. One of the most dastardly mur ders that ever disgraced this coun ty was committed in the town of Glasgow, six miles southwest ol this city, about 4 p. m. yesterday. At that hour the citizens of that little Village were horriiled at seeing Jim Coats, one of their most estimable tow nsmen, shot dow n and killed in cold blood by a young des perado named Davis Wells, from Greene County. The ouly cause assigned for the killing is as follows: Mr. Coats is a constable of the pre cinct in which he resides, which embraces the town of Glasgow. About a w eek ago Davis Wells, who is a young man about twenty-five yeai a old, and who Is looked upon as a hard citizen, came up from his home in Greene County to Glasgow am' undertook to run the town. His conduct was very unbecoming, aud Coats arrested and incarcerated him in the calaboose. This did not set well with Wells, and since that time he has made some very violent threats attainst Coats' life. To-day Wells met Coats in Glasgow and began talking to him about the arrest above referred to. They had not been speaking loug when Wells drew a large revolver and shot Coats once in the left side and then ran out. of tow n swinging a large revolver in either hand, since w hich time he has not been seen. Coats died in about twenty minutes after he was siiot. He was about twenty-eight years old and one of Scott County's most estimable citizens, lie was married aud leaves a wife and one child.

Washinoton, 1. 0 Mht h 27 Your correspondent had a con resnattoa with fief utiirj I'reling huysen, before that gentleman left his residence for the State Department this morning, regarding the transfer of Minister Sargent from Merlin to St. Petersburg. The Secretary saitl that the change would be an agreeable one to Mr. Sargent and that this was the most important consideration in making.' it. It was a promotion, St Petersburg ranking higher than Berlin as a mission. " Will it nut appear that the Govern ment has decided to submit to Bisuiaick's dictation in this matter?" "Not at all. I am not at liberty to speak on this point, hut you cun say that Mr. Sargent's course has been entirely approved by the President and the Depart ment, and that the feelings of the (ierman iovernment In regard to Mr. Sargent have neither been considered nor consult ed in this matter. If Mr. Sargent bad desired to remain in Berlin the change would not have been made." "Will a person known to be friendly to the Ccrman Government. or, rather person whom the German (iovernment sees no objection to be appointed in Mr. Sargent's place?" "It is likely that for the present nobody will be appointed to the vacancy at Ber lin. We can manage to get along with a charge d' affaires. When Mr. Sargent's successor is appointed his name will be sent to the Senate without waiting to bear from Germany. This Nation is not in the habit of consulting foreign nations regarding such matters." "But liisman k will claim the credit (A driving Sargent out of Berlin." " If there is any credit in it, he is wel come to the claim. I do not think that were I to make things so disagreeable for the German Minister here as to cause him to desire a change of residence, there would be much credit in it for me. I could easily do It, hut not without violat ing the laws of hospitality or descending to a systematic course of discourtesy." " Which Bismarck has done?" 'I have not said so."

Tx , Mureu W Yesterday afternoon there occurred here one of the most daring attempts at bank robbery the country has ever known. Charles K. Hagley, Willy Hays aud a hoy eighteen years of age, named Frank 1'ar nientcr, and John Kinkald, a member ol the Kanger force, constituted the party, the latter playing in with the party to trap them. The plans have been forming for several weeks, but were not sjefffneted until last night, wheu Kiukaid, bdug In their confidence aud getting the plans. Informed Lieutenant Schmidt fully as to the entire scheme, and the latter notified Colonel J. G. James, cashier of the bank, of what was going to lie attempted, Sergeant Crimes was stationed In the bank vault, and Ashly James, cashier of the bank, was st his counter, no one else being In the hank t the time sppolnted, but for some reason the attempt was not made until half an hour later. While Parincntcr and Iluyes were out side near the bank entrance holding the horses, Maglcy anil Kinkald entered. They passed through a passageway around the counter, Maglcy in the lead, smoking a pipe. As he entered he told Mr. Jsmcs he wanted some New York exchange, an I James told him to stay In front of the counter; thai thev did not allow any 0SM to come behind. Bagley answered, "I will conu anyhow," and took his pipe out of his mouth and put It In a case When he had passed around to a railing, separating the business from the oilier part of the room, he drew his alx-shooter, covered James and continued to walk around to an entrance to the Inclosure where James was, aud where the money and vault were. When he covered James he called on him to throw up his InmN. which James did. Baglcy had a bag In his hand, and told James to put all his money In It. James did not comply Immediately, snd Baglcy said : " you, I will kill you If you don't," and at the same time presented his pistol to James' heart, as If he would shoot . At this movement Sergeant Grimes tin i the contents of a double-barrel shot-gun into the robber, and Kinkald followed with a six-shooter. Baglcy staggered and fell riddled with balls. One pistol shot entered near the left nipple. Lieutenant Schmidt and another ranger were sta tioned across the street in the route I hey were expected to lake on their retreat. A book agent by the name of Wear was in the bank at the time the robbers en tered, and was talking to .lames, w ho ex cused himself to attend to those gent 1c men. Wear went towards the door, but stopped to see what was up, and suspect ing how matters stood started to run across the street, when 1'arinentcr called to him to stop, and he not heeding lie emptied his pistol at him, ami the teller of the bank, who was stationed in the store across the street, hearing the shots, ran out, and seeing Wear running from the bank, supposed he was one of the robbers and presented his Winchester, and told him to tki'ow up his hands, which Wear did, calling out, "1 am not one of them." Lieutenant Schmidt fired at Hayes, who started to run, but did not wing his man. One of the rangers emptied his pistol at the boy at close range, but did not hit him. The boy Pannenter told his pals as they entered the bank that he would Imi there dead or alive when they cam it, and was captured at his post and did not flinch under the fire of the rangers. Kin kald, Sheriff Davis and others are still In pursuit of Hayes, w ho has not yet been captured, and as he Is well mounted h may not be overhauled soon. U Is said he is wanted nt several places for rob bcry. It is supposed he la wounded The coroner's jury at the Inqneet ol Hagley, who lived for two or three hours, brought in the following verdict: "We, the jury, find that the deceased, Bagley, came to his death by wounds made with shot from the pistol or guns of some of the ranger force while he was engaged in an attempt to rob the bank of John (i. James, aud that the rangers were justified In said killing; and we commend Captain Schmidt and Kogcrs, Off Ban and Kinkald for their efficacious action In pre vent lug the robliery." Among the jurors was a brother-ln-In w of the James boys, who is a citizen of this place. One of the men of the gang has been at t. tiding stage stand on the Seymour route, and it was Intended to have him come, to divide the party, and rob the Itauk of Henrietta at the same hour, but he was lame ami could not go there, so the Hen rietta si heme was abandoned. Haulers started for this man yesterday. Parties: are out from Henrietta to capture Hajes, and it Is hardly sslblc that he will be able to make good his escape. A CBT FOR SUCCOR.
