Fenelon, oue of Rhinelander’s leading merchants, was shot and instantly killed by J. Bascom Robbins, salesman for the Chicago Crockery Company. The story, as it has been published in the Milwaukee Sentinel, and told by people from Rhinelander, is that Rob bins had passed up the Valley selling his goods where he could to the' differ ent merchants and at last reached Rhinelander. He visited dealers in that city and among them Mr. Fenelon. The merchant did not want anything in his line but while the conversation was being earned on, one of the young lady clerks slyly flirted with the ‘‘knight of the grip” and this was re nerved at times when Robbins happened to pass the store. At 8 o’clock in the evening Robbins went into the store and made a small purchase of the young lady in question, and requested that she meet him afte}- the store was closed. Fenelon overheard the request and without a word or a moment’s delay, threw the young man out of the store and chased him to within a block of the Rapids House, at times catching up and “cuffing” him severely. It is thought that Fenelon went back from there and closed the store. Robbins went to the hotel and told the clerk what had happened, was very much excited and said he would leave on the next train and requested that his bill be made out. He then went to his room, secured a Smith & Wesson re volver, 38 calibre, and placed it in bis pocket, returned to the office and had just paid his bill when the irate mer chant appeared, and at once started for Robbins, in a menacing manner. The latter was beside himself, fearing that Fenelon was going to shoot him, in the moment of excitement he drew his re volver and fired, the ball piercing the merchant’s heart and death was instan taneous. Robbins gave himself up and was taken to the jail by the sheriff. The affair created inteuse excitement and it was circulated that a crowd was assembling to lynch Robbins, and to head off anything of this kind, Sheriff Wismer and one of his deputies took the prisoner from the jail and going about a mile through aswamp, brought him out near the N. W. depot, and hid ing among the box cars until the pas senger train arrived, they boarded the same and came to Wausau and Robbins was placed in the marathon county jail for safe keeping. Robbins is of slight build, weighing only 125 pounds, is twenty-five years of age and of very pleasing address. Ilis home is in Tennessee where his father is still liviug. His uncle is at the head of the crockery firm, iu Chi cago, for which the young man has been traveling. He has wired his brother to come here and lie is expected on every train. The young man is prostrated over the affair and avers that he only meant to wound Feuelou. Mr. Feuelou as has been stated, was among the leading and most highly re spected citizens of Rhinelander. He was a large man, weighing fully 175 pounds; always quiet and gentlemanly but a man who did notiknow what fear was, and when once stirred lip was ag gressive. We learu that the sentiment has been changing at Rhinelander in favor of Robbins anjl he now has many sympa thizers, and it is thought that he will be entirely safe there and therefore sheriff Wismer came down yesterday and took Robbins back to Rhinelander this morn ing where he will have a hearing. We understand that he will set up a claim of self-defense. He has engaged the firm of Bump, Rreutzer & Rosen berry of this city, to defend him. BENJ. FELDMANNN.

The search was kept up very late Wednesday night and all day Thursday ami up to Friday noon, dur ing this time heavy charges of dyna mite were exploded and while logs and debris were brought up nothing was seen of the body. At noon, on Friday, men with pike poles were searching only a little distance from where the boy was last seen, when one of the hooks caught in the lad’s clothing and the body was brought to the surface and taken to the home qf the bereaved parents.

The Holzman Robbery not Known Un til Read in tne Pilot Last Tuesday, the Pilot made note of a daylight robbery, at Frank Holz man’s house, on the Thursday before. The first knowledge w-hich Chief Ander son had of the affair was through the Pilot. Going to the house he found out that two persons had seen the man who had gone into the house and stolen the watch and money, and described him. The chief has uo doubt but that it was a tramp who was subsequently arrested for vagancy and who was giv en a certain number of hours to get out of town. There xvasone mark by which he could easily be known, that was a large scar on his face. Had Chief An derson been notified of the robbery at once he has every reason to believe that he could have returned the proper ty and apprehended the thief. Chief Amierson requests that these matters lie reported to him quickly and he will let no time escape in arresting the guilty ones.
