After examining Owen Cook, a friend

veloped no interesting evidence, the
State informed tne Court they would

The first w :mss cilled for Ilie de

Russell only having paid 15 cents on the
second bottle of beer and that she saw-
Breeding before the shooting; he was in
Vick's room with Cook.
This morning Mr. Breeding wa'
placed on the stand. His talc of the af
fair was briefly as follows: He stated
he was In conversation with Clif! Cook
in u room nt Gibson's house and went on
to say : "During the conversation l>e
tween ourselves, I heard some loud talk
ing on the outside of this room out in
the yard. I w alked out of the room and
told Mr. Cook there was some trouble
on the outside and started out of the
house, going out on the walk; there was
a man standing there about six or eight
feet from the gate near a tree, and be
was using pretty hard language
and I thought the man was drunk.
I heard him say 1 have
got the best of you I can do you up.
She told him you are a coward; you have
not goljthe nerve to lire that gun.” Mr.
l ook told me it was not necessary for
me to leave; he did not think there was
going to be any trouble,he said“stay here
a few minutes and we will resume our
conversation.” 1 passed into Hie room
mid Cook was passing out. I heard 11
shot tired as I went into tl.e room. I
turned around and took was staining
at the edge of the porch ami lie tired tUo
shots in the direction of the gate; there
was quite a commotion from some peo
ple there and I walked to the back part
of the house and stayed there, I suppose
10 minutes and left the house. This was
the most important evidence elicited by
his examination in chief. Breeding then
underwent a rigorous cross-examination
nt the hands of Major Teel, and the wit
ness contradicted himself on many ma
terial points; he was still on the stand
nt the time the Lum ( reporter left the
court room.

Murderer Lynched
Vim exne-. Ind.. January Is.—Holly
Epps, the murderer of Farmer Dobson,
has expiated the terrible crime at the
hands of Judge Lynch. About 12:50
this morning a crowd of masked men, 20
or 30, carrying sledge hammers and va
riousotherimplements,marched through
the suburbs of the city. Being refused
entrance by the Sherif!', they knocked
down the door of the jail and proceeded
to Epps' cell, dragged forth the crimi
nal and hanged him to the nearest tree.
Epps was the negro who murdered his
master with an ax anil attempted an as
sault upon his mistress. She. however,
proved too much for him, defeated his
object, and succeeded in attracting the
neighbors, who arrested the murderer.
Professor Cook’s Opinion.
New Youk, January 18.—In an address
before the American Temperance Asso
ciation, in Chickering Hall, Joseph < ook,
of Boston said: “We are the most
drunken race on the planet, and the
palm for red noses should be awarded to
Irish, Germans, and Americans.’’ To
make a knowledge of alcoholic effect on
the *humaii system compulsory in the
schools was to take the bull by the
horns. Cook bad not lost nil hope that
the Republican party would yet lead a
crusade against the liquor trallie.

I was in that battle myself. Yes. sir,
there's the very fence that I jumped
over when the rebs were pushing our di

dropped my hat, and, by gum, there
it is!’”
The other St. Paul man had also been
to Chicago, and had likewise seen the
panorama. “TVas the man who rushed

Alsiis. January 17.—“ What's this?”
inquired your correspondent of Mr.
Henry Brown, an attache of the police
department, us lie picked up a large
large sized ax that stood in a corner of
Marshal Lucey's office, “That, sir. is
the Weapon which terminated the life ot
the pretty Mrs. Eula Philipps on the
night of December 2ttii." Your curres

looking ax. imide so by its blood stained
handle, and the bloody linger prints
which still remain upon its handle and
blade, made by the victim of the cruel
tragedy in her endeavors to ward off the
blows of the assassin. Mrs. P. had but
a short hour before her untimely death
arranged a Christmas tree, tilling its
branches with I ttle tokens of love that
was to meet the gaze of little children
in tlie morning and dealt out to them ns

Chicago Socialists.
Chicago, January 17.—Socialists at
their meeting to-day discussed the ques
tion, "Why do men sleep in the tun
nel»?" Several speeches endeavored to
show that it was entirely owing to the
existence of capitalists that they were
obliged to sleep in tunnels and anywhere
night overtook them. T. P. Duper said
Hie Socialists would not get their due
until they burned everything before
them, as General Sherman did on his
march through Georgia.
