Yesterday afternoon an inquisition into the death of Thomas Doherty was held before Judge Seward, acting cor oner. The inquest was preceded by a post mortem examination in the form of an autopsy conducted by Doctors Alton. Weirick and Perry in the pres ence of the jury. The scalp of the deceased was divided and removed until sufficient of the skull was ex posed, when the practiced hands of the surgeons sawed the skull asunder and removed it. The entire body of the brain tissue was then extracted and beneath it the bullet which had caused death was found, flattened and battered. The jury then assembled before Judge Seward, and Dr. S. T. Weirick gave the testimony revealed by the autopsey. Relieved of its technical terms, it was to the effect that the skull had been perforated by the bullet at a point about two and one-half inches above the left eye; that the bullet had ranged diagonally down ward until it rested beneath the brain and upon the optic nerve which it had nearly severed—such injuries being sufficient to cause death. Doctors Alton and Perry concurred in Dr. Weirick's testimony and subscribed to it. John Snyder, John Ynilland Chris topher E. Keenan were .then sworn and gave separate testimony, of which the following is an amalgamation: The killing ocurred at a cabin about jht miles west of here, owned by the Northern Pacific Coal company and now occupied by John Snyder, one of the witnesses. Doherty had been working for the N. P. Coal com pany until Tuesday last, when he was paid about $63, and came to Living? - ton. Doherty was at Snyder's cabin on Friday, and with him came to Liv ingston and returned the same day with a quart of whisky. Theodore Pendleton came to the cabin and be gan drinking with Doherty. On Sat urday forenoon the two were very drunk but in excellent humor with each other. They wanted to come to Livings ton that night to a "nigger show," and Snyder agreed to bring them down. About 11 o'clock that day C. E. Keenan, one of the witnesses, rode into camp on his way to the coal mines near Timberline. (He knew Doherty who had werked at those mines.) Doherty and Pendleton were both very drunk at that time but still good-natured. In a few minutes Kee nan's pony got loose and run away over the hills. Snyder- and Keenan then started away in pursuit of tlue pony leaving Doherty and Pen dlet on alone* together in the cabin. They were absent about half an hour md went from one-quarter to one îalf a mile from the cabin. While they were absent John Yuill came up from his cabin a mile away to borrow some matches. When he came to Snyder's-cabin he saw the man Do herty sitting down and leaning against the wall outside. Doherty was groaning, and seeing the blood run ning down over his face Yuill knew the man was hurt. Yuill then went inside the cabin and discovered the half-breed, Pendleton, lying down on the bunk, apparently asleep, with his revolver in Ids' hand. Yuill came tway and started to go to a neighbor iiig cabin; when after going about 200 feet he met Snyder and Keenan return^ ing from their chase after the pony. He told them there had been shooting at the cabin, and all three went there together. When they got to the cabin Doherty was still sitting outside and making a sound as if singing, Kee nan .went up to examine his wound when Doherty told him to let him alone. Pendleton was still asleep on the bunk, Revolver in hand. They de liberated as to the advisability i»f seizing upon him, but concluded not to bother him lest he might shoot. They then concluded to bring Doherty to town, ami for that purpose began harnessing Snyder's mules. While thus engaged in front of the door Pendleton woke up. came out and in threatened to shoot Yuill. The latter did not relish the threat and betook himself and the mules out of range. Pendleton continued threatening :to shoot, and swearing horribly for some time after. They then abandoned their purpose of bringing Doherty to town, and Keenan started for Living ston after an officer and surgeon. Both Yuill and Snyder appear to have left the cabin in the meantime. As detailed in yesterday's issue, officers Metcalf and Wimett, accompanied by Dr. Alton, went up and arrested Pen dleton and brought him and Doherty to Livingston. Deputy-sheriff Metcalf was sworn and stated briefly that when Pendle ton was arrested he expressed sorrow (presumably for the killing) and sev eral times since then he has spoken in the same way. The evidence than went to the jury which consisted of Gus. Plummer, foreman, Thomas Wheeler, John S. Bechtel, William Morris, John Mc Laughlin and Alvah Ketchem. They returned a verdict to the effect that Thomas Doherty came to his death "by a gun shot wound inflicted by the hand of Theodore Pendleton." PRELIMINARY EXAMINATION. At the conclusion of the inquest the prisoner, Theo. Pendleton, was brought before Judge Seward to an swer to the charge of killing Thomas Doherty. He at first said lie was guilty, but being instructed by the court that he had better withdraw that plea he did so, waived examina tion, and was committed to wait the action of the grand jury at the next term of district court. Stebbins* Say. In the absence of Mr. W. R. Steb bins we re-produce the following suc cinct interview with him published in the Cheyenne* Leader: "The total cost of the Park hotel and surrounding camps," said Mr. Stebbins in reply to a question, "was $180,000. Of this amount Rufus Hatch paid $106,000. Of the balance his partners paid only $10,000 leaving a debt upon the prop erty of about $75,000. Of this amount about$10,000 is owed to the carpen ters, who until recently held posses sion of the hotel. The balance of the money is due to persons who pro vided the furniture and materials for the building. The money is owed principally to New York and St. Paul people. The hotel is 450 feet long, about 130 rooms have already been furnished and the remaining 30 will be put in good shape for occupany by the tune the season opens. Every thing about the place will be in full running order at the earliest moment that an excursionist will venture there. The hotel will be in charge of John II. McKinney, the well-known cattleman. The difficulties in the way of sight-seeing in t he Park have been pretty effectually done away with. After reaching Livingston. Montana, which is the objective point on the Northern Pacific, a branch road runs for sixty miles to the line of the National Park and thence by stage tiie passengers are transferred seven miles to the hotel. Of course the hotel is made the point from which visiting excursionists will radiate to the differ ent points of interest. About 175 miles of stage travel will include all the points of interest in the Park. The route is all laid out and can be covered in about four days although in six days time the points of interest can be more satisfactorily examined. The government fixes the rate of charges for everything. There will be an im mense number of excursionists to the Park this season." Gannie Jeffers, Queen of the gypsies Of the United States, was buried at Dayton, Ohio, a few days ago. where the tribe have considerable projierfy, and a large burial lot in the cemetery. She died at Greenfield, Tennessee in March. Her body was embalmed and removed to Day ton for interment. The former Kings and Queens of the Gypsy tribes were buietl in Dayton.
