I.—For some months past a very hard feting existed between the citizens of L'totis and Coronado, twe> small towns of Wallace coaniy, Kansas, over tbe location of the eouaty seat. The ooun'y government is now located at the latter place und the citizens of the former are attempting to bave it moved to their town. This bard feeling often led to rows and knock-downs when thn citizens of una village would visit the other, but with no fatal results until yes terday afterncon at 3 o'clock, when Frank Jonnes, A. N. Barry, George Wat kinr, Kmmett De Swing, Charles Coulter, Bill Rains and a man named Johnson left Leotis for Coronado. Upon entering that town in a wagon they noticed a suspicious movement among some of the citizens who were standing on the pave ment in front of one of the stores. Coulter, Rains and Johnson sprang from the wuguu and reacbe I for their revolvers. No sooner had the men touched the ground than tbe party in front of tbe store poured a volley from sixshooters into the men, killing Cent, ter, Ruins and Juhu6on, and wounding Jonnes, Barry and Watkius, whose re covery is impossible. During the right De Swing ei-caped from the town and bas not yet been heard from. It is not known whether he is wounded or not. After tbe killing tho bodies of the dead n en were left laying in the street, no one being allowed to remove theas until nearly midnight, when tbey were taken to the undertakers. The wounded men were oonveyed to a hotel, aud are being cared for. Nouu of the murderers have yet beeu arrested, and it seems tbut no i tlie i' in the county has any de sire to attempt the task. The two towns are only two miles apart, and further trouble is anticipated between the citi zens. They are located twenty miles from the railroad and telegraph lines, tv the latest news from them has not beeu received. THK ■ LM I mil ARE.
