Another Accouut.
Indinapolis, Aptil 30. The express
matter in the . L. N. A. & C. train
was earned m the baggage car, which is occu
lted by messenger aud "baggage-master. It
was, as usuali the first car on the tram. The
messenger's name was George N. Davis, oi
Louisville. Last night at 11 o ch.ck the train
reached Harrodsburg, Owen County, a local
station, the third below Bloomlrgton. It bas
a population of not more than four hundred
soulf , aud at that time of niglit as quiet as the
grave. It is, iu round figures, 112 miles from
Lafayette. There is a water tank
at ilorroasDUi g, ana me iraia sioipeu mere
four or five minutes to replenish the engine.
While it was at a stand-still one of the passen
gers in a sieeping-c.r, J. ti. aamuiou, oi
Greeucastle, happened to be looking out of
the window, and by the reflected light of the
engine and lrom the car-windows, taw a man
emerge aonarentlv from under the trucks, and
d.sappear in the direction of the engine. Iu
the brief g'.impse nr. iiactiuon nau oi me
man, hi saia he was above medium higut,
dressed in the tattered garments of a va-erant.-and
carried a stick in his hand-a club
for a stick. He naturally suposes him to
be some tramp, who was pstealing a
ride under the tiucks and dismissed the mat
ter fr m ills mind.
Meantime the engine had taken water and
started. Nothing unusual occurred until the j
Utile statlou of Smlthville Hid. about two
miles Norh ot Harrodsburg, was reached.
A sharo ring oi the bell on the enuine stopped
the tralu. Befere an inquiry as to who pulled
the bell rope could be made, the baggage mas
ter fluug open the door of the smoking cr and
reeled, covered with blood that trickled from
a ghastly wound in the head. He sank on his
knte- between the forward seats and gasped
out to the horrified passengers who rushed
to him, that a rooner naci enterra
the bagae car, and shot himself and the
express messenger. This was all he was able
to say, when he fell unconscious on his face.
By that time, Conductor Chamberlln was at
his sine, aud, with a few of the more intrepid
passengers, maae nn way mio me uaggage
car. A siugle lantern, turned low, anu swtug-
icg from a hook iuthe ecu ng, cast a aim

side of his safe, which' ws

was evidence of a terrific struggle. The floor

Webber, the baggage master, gives the fol
lowing accouut of the affair: "When the train
slopped at Harrodsburg, he and Davis were

that if the officers of Illinois attempt to enforce

Galveston. May l. The Mayoral y con
test between Ex-Mayor Fulton aid acting
Mayor Atkins took a new and unexpected turn
today. The sleuth hounds of investiga
tion got on tne ngut scent when
thev stat ted out to investigate
the frauds in the alderman lc contest between
Cuney and Allen . After seating turn y they
iook up tne -rial again, ana to-aay tne uig
wolf was fairly run to cover, where he Iras

Hunt. When the Council met to-day, in com
mittee of the whole, the contestant (Fulton)
through his Attorneys, immediately began
proving the fraui uleut character of the re
turns from the Eleventh Ward. These returns
had already been proven so putrid that Atkins
was unable, through hi witnesses, to po!nt
out a single genuine ballot in the Eleventh
Ward box. His entire defense con
sisted of an exhaustive document
labori-msly aliening, in a superficial manner,
the existence of fraudulent ballots iu tlie
boxes of the other w ards. For Instance, In
the 7th Ward Atkins alleges the nernet atlou
of such hnlous offences agalust tbe elect on
laws as vtne pasting together of one ballot,"
another ballot he alleges "had a circle upon it
made with a pencil; while s''ll another was
"scratched with a blue pencil-'- In this man
ner be enumerated perhap a hundred petty
Irregularities. The attorneys Jor Atkins, at
tne conclusion oi tne evidence oitered by Ful
ton, attem.ted to call witnesses and prove for
whom they voted lor iayor in the Eleventh
Ward Fulton objected to it on the. ground that
to show for whom they voted would be equiva
lent to holding an election at a time and man
ner tot provided for by law. The committee
sustained this objection, and, on mot on of Al
derman Lee, by a vote ot
six to three the testimony offered by
Atkins, was rejected. This brought ou tbe
crisis. The attorneys for Atkins, after a hast v
consH.tation, re-entered the Chamber and
threw bomb shell In the camp by announc
ing that Atkins withdrew his case from tur
ner consideration ot the council.
aud said lie would appeal to a more learned trl -bunal.
The strangest part of the proceedings
was the pompous announcement by the junior
attorney .that he took the responsibility of say
ing that the coutestee (Atkins) would contin
ue to hold the office of Mayor pend
ing the discussion ot the case by the courts.
This is the rub: Fulton with the Eleventh
Ward thrown out. has an undisputed malorliy
ef 91 votes, yet Atkins refuses to abide by any
result tne city council may aeternuue, ana ae
Bantly declares war by unnounciug he will
continue to be mayor, no matter what the
council does, until disposed by a more "learned

test to avoid his impending defeat, he repaired
to his office and immediately began a whole
sale decapitation orth e old and tried members
ot the city police force. By nightfall he had
summarily d'smbsed twenty policemen, in
cluding two aetectivea; also discharged some
minor employes. Some days ago he dis
charged thirteen policemen, including Chief
Police Jerdoii", and appointed others in their
stead. Thus, to-night the entire poUce
force of the city are new men. every one
of whom is a strong partisan oe
Atkins, it certainly looks as though Atkius

the City Council hurling him from office. That
such a mandate will be issued to-morrow no

outcome is apparent everywhere. The popular

down to fortress Munroe. Under our interna

tempt to engage her she would first have to
fin tbe Strtflok outside, and then the Streiok
might keep just outside of range of her antago

on the Garnet. This gives the lfu si ui snip a
big advantage, and although she is a smaller
