THE DAILY ENTERPRISE.
Published every day except Sunday. WRIGHT & HENDRY, : Publishers. LIVINGSTON, M.T- AUGUST 15.1883. The T.owi* Mystery. From the Tribune of Dillon, where the horrible tragedy was enacted, we condense the following account of the incidents connected with the death of Miss Eva Claak, for whose murder Prof. C. A. Lewis i3 now under arrest A succession of loud cries was heard by a number of of carpenters working near the Beaveriie;id river, and they inline diately started ; in the . direction . fron whence they proceeded* Arrived at the bridge across ; the river they overtook Lewis, who had just stepped on the bridge with the dead girl in bis arms. The ghastly; burdea wits taken, from him, and at that moment catching sight of the shattered and empty head—-the brains being all gpue—-Lewis uttered a horrified eiclamaticn and. made a movement as if to jump iuto the river, but was intercepted by one of the men. He acted like a luna tic and talked in a very wild manner about the girl, saying something about lier want ing to be an angel and that now she was oue* He was taken into custody and the coroner notified, who, with a jury, viewed the remains of the girl. The whole top of the Iieud, from above the left car, diagonally across to above the right eye, was gone, the brains emptied, and the left side of the face blackened by powder. 8he had on over lier, dress a light green, gold trimmed basque, probably part of a stage costume. „> In the wagon • fit the camp, near by and where the affair hap pened, were found a rifle and doublé barreled shot gun, with one barrel of the latter empty. They were lying on the latter empty. They were lying on the trunks in the wagon with the muzzles toward the seat. The inside of the wagon cover was thickly spattered with brains and blood, right over the seat, showing that the girl w r as in the wagon when the accident or murder happened and fell out near the right fore wheel, as that was where the bulk of the brains were found. Pieces of skull were found twenty feet away. The girl was not en ciente as at first reported. The jury re turned a verdict stating that her death was s lip posed to have been the result of a gun shot wound inflicted by Lewis. The body was given decent burial by the peo ple of Dillou, and before interment Lewis was allowed to see the remains and seemed very much affected, calling on the dead to speak and vindicate him fjpm the awful suspicion of murder. She belouged in Chicago and about four month's ago started by her mother's consent, as an assistant in Lewis' public performances. The mother was communicated with about her daughter's death and replied to the effect that the body should be given decent burial aud Lewis would pay the necessary expenses. In her statement, telegraphed the Associated Press from Chicago, the mother says that in her opinion Eva had committed sUcide as Lewis had always treated her well and she could not believe him guilty of such a crime. Lewis says he aud Eva were pack ing up preparatory to starting for Ogden. He was going to take her home, showing on the road to pay expenses. That a few minutes before the; gun went off she had put on a green basque and was in the wagon after a gold trimmed cap which she said she would put on and theu run over and show a neighbor- He heard the. gun go off and rushed to where Eva was lying, and raising her in his arms started on a run, calling for help, thinking tlrat she was only badly hurt. That when he. got to the east end of the river bridge he saw that the whole top of the girl's head was gone he dropped the body ami re membered no more until he found himself iu a cell of the jail. The whole affair seems most mysterious. Mrs. Lewis lives in Miles City and her brother, who is a somewhat noted criminal lawyer of Chi cago, was expected there yesterday, doubtless (though not so stated) on his way to defend Lewis from the crime laid to his charge. A HAPPY AFFAIR. Th« Marriage of Mr. Will 0. Hagy and Miss Laura Lambert. From the Sioux City Journal we clip the following extract, which ehroniclesau «vent oflocaHuterest that has been alluded to by tlie Entkrprisk : The marriage of Ml Will G. Hagy and Mias Laura Lumber! took place at the residence.of the bride's parents, Mr. F. J. and Mr»s Christine Lambert, on Douglas • rejet last evenings The contracting par* Hit are well-known resideutaof Sioux City, having both come here in 1857. At the time of .their arrival Mr. Hagy was but 8 and Misa Lambert but £ years of hge. They attended school together and grew up almost in the same-neighborhood. At tlie ceremony last evening noue were present except relatives of tlie parties. Mi« Katie and Master Willie Smith, the youthful; niece and nephew of. the groom, acted the part of bridesmaid and grooms man. The ceremony w as performed by Rev. ,E. F. Chittenden of. the Congrega tional church, and the parties stood under an elegant marriage heil in tin* parlor. Just a« tbftceremony was performed, Prof. Johntieeeanovffrhp eelUR.tftfuek.up the wedding nwoh* - The presents Were vary «ne* consisting of a.ailver apd a giaas fault dW*. a pur*u yfoL tu «20 fold Jrfeew, »e v«ral elegant bouquet holders, a fine silver sendee from the father of the bride, including forks aud spoons, a set of silver knives and forks from another party, a satin-embroid ered toilet set, inclosing a handsome neck lace and locket, table linen, another toilet ease and numerous floral tributes. The newly-wedded pair will remain in the city until Sunday, and will receive congratulations at the residence of Mrs. Hagy or Mrs. Lambert until that time. They will then go to Livingston, Montana, which will be their future home. Mr. Hagy is engaged in the business of general merchandising there. The Journal unites with the many friends of the newly-wed ded pair in congratulations. Prcsidont Artlmr. last news from the presidential party was dated August the 12th. They were then camped for the night on L'un widdie creek, a .small tributary of the Wind river. In honor of the Governor of Montana, who is with the party, the spot was named Camp Crosby, as other stop ping places aiong the route have been named after members of the party. The President and all his companions were in the best health and spirits and enjoying the trip in the highest degree. Fishing is the chief amusement, and the President who is an inveterate angler, is having all the success in that line he can desire as every camp is beside a mountain stream full of trout. Senator Vest is his compet itor in the sjKnt, aud according to the dis patches both are catching trout enough to supply a regiment. The only shadow of discomfort arises from frequent showers which, however, prove blessings bv cooling the. atmosphere and. the sandy arid soil over which the- route now lies. The party must now be drawing near the confines of the Park, the objective point of their journey. Communications from them with tlie outside world, come somewhat slowly, as news in necessarily carried by courier to Ft. Washakie, the nearest tele r graph station.
