One of the points not mentioned is in substance as follows: J It was reported that a onsta- j ble from l.ietneii was called on to arrest ! Stewart and was resisted. At the time' spoken of Stewart had received the! I ai ti 1 1 1 1 wound in the arm. Meredith Svoerlaml st ill retained the knife with which he had cut Stewart, ami Mart vo rrlaml was coming down the road with his reoler in his hand. Stewart at this time was trying to get awav and load his revolver, to be prepared to meet Mart Swoverland. At this junc ture the constable attempted to disarm Stewart, but the latter seeing theap pr ach of young Swoverland armed, refused to give, up his gun. At the impiest yesterday the only c ntradictorv evidence was that given by .lohn Carter, who assert ei I that Swo verland told Stewart to stop. On all other points the evidence seemed to be about the same. In the evidence given ioiav, I I' . ( 1 irver. oi i.remeii.on tinsi point, gave about the same version as that above mentioned. A synopsis of the evidence taken today is as fol lows: Joseph Davis Jr. I am in the hard ware business at Iioiirbon. Swoverland came into my store two weeks ago Sat urday, lie said: 'loe. I would like for you to till up a good revolver and lend it to me." 1 said: 'Mohn, i am afraid you will hurt, yourself or somebody else." lie said: "I want a good revolver to protect myself." 1 said: '"John, we have only this cheap thing." lie said: want a good one." 1 said: ".lohn you had better let this thing blow over. It will be better for all." Nethen turned and went out. I saw he was mad at some one, but did not know who. i Steven (Jerard -Meant Swoverland say: "1 have but a few days to live, and 1 will kill the - --- before 1 die." lie (Cerai'di asked him who he was going to kill. Swoverland said: ''There they are pointing across the street. lie repeat ed it several limes. At that time Swoverland had his hand in his over coat pocket, and remarked: "I am fixed for them." I am sure he meant Stewart for 1 heard him speak his name. Those pres ent when conversation took place were: Curtis Waxter. Mel Spencer. Mel Ueed. Ceo. McCoy.

His evidence was to the effect that he heard only a part of the conver sation heard by Mr. (Jerald. n. T. Carver stated he lived at lire- men. Knew swoverianu ior me pasi fifteen years, but was not acquainted with Stewart. Tie saw Swoverland when he went todinner, lie was gone about an hour. Was standing on the porch of the house when Swoverland returned, and remained there during the encounter. He said Swoverland stopped on the west side of the road. Did not hear him talk loud until he stopped. Stewart at this time was standing on the inside of the fence abo'it fifteen feet from the gate that led out into the road. Swoverland said; "Stewart. 1 understand that you sent for me, and if you did, b J I am here, and anything you want you can have." Stewart replied, "No, I did not send for you; but 1 had some trouble with your boy. Put if you want to take it up lor him the road is open." Stewart then started toward Swover land. When Stewart got into the road about six or eight feet Swoverland told him to not come one inch farther. Stewart kept on. When half way across the road Swoverland again said: " Don t come one inch farther! '' Swoverland had his right hand in his overcoat pocket, ami about that time he pulled his revolver and shot. They were eight or tea feet apart.

The inquest adjourned at . o'clock to meet at II Tuesday. The only conllicting evidence given so far is said to be regarding the meet ing of Stewart ami Swoverland in the road. The greater number of the wit nesses state that the old man called him out in the road anJ then shot at Stewart. The evidence given by John Carter is to the effect that the old man told Stewart to stop, when he started to meet him. It is probable the evidence will be completed tomorrow. The ! Vfi-ion.

Our fun and music loving people will now have a chance to see a farce comedy that has played from New York to San Francisco, and lroni V innepago to New Orleans. This is the ninth successful season of "A Cold Day." The fun comes quick and fast there is no plot in it, and one only looses time if they try to find it. The best farce comedies have no plot, as it is im possible to make funny sayings, situa tions and plot work together successful ly. Plots belong to dramas, a'lul not to farce comedies.

A petition signed by leading farmers and real estate people of Madison coun ty has been addressed to the county commissioners asking them to meet in special session ami condemn all nat ural gas pipe lines in that county that have a pressure of more than :'00 pounds to the square inch. This means that all the lines conveying gas to outside cities are to be put under the ban. A decision of the supreme court last week was the effect that all pipe lines hav ing a pressure of wore than 'Mi pounds to the square inch can be condemned as dangerous. This would make it possible forthe commissioners of I ml iana to deal an effectual blow to all lines sucii as those furnishing Chicago. Indianapolis, Kichmond, Lafayette.

Tliis l- H ui Ottiliu i id --ii t V nni-tii :4 li 1 Hie to onie I lo on;: li Tl'tMlllIf u liustt For some time past a number of our citizens who have passed into the disniil shades of bachelordom, have been seri ously contemplating the formation of a "protective league." The cause prin cipally alluded to Ly them, is the note ot warning given by the advancing column of the new woman. It is well known by these gentlemen owing to leap year being present, their prospects for passing through the ordeal unscarred is very remote, so taking all things in to consideration, they have concluded to loim a bond of fellowship so sacred and oath-hound, that the bloomer clad siren cannot break through the meshes of red tape, signals and grips so as to remove one of the Mock from the care of the judicious and careful shepherd. These gentlemen, we are informed by one who is connected with the inner circle, have about consummated ar rangements forthe large suite of rooms over the Pheonix cigar store, which they will fit up m all the splendor and magnificence pertaining to a thorough ly equipped bachelor's hall. While it is authenticity stated they will not have hung upon the wall such mottos as: "(!od llless our Home," or ingrain car pets upon the lloor, the recently enploy- ed janitor claims there will be as many as two cuspidors in the reception room of these apartment. To give warning as to their opinion upon this new department among the fairer sex, they propose to have placed upon the large bay window that faces Laporte street in large white letters these words: Uachelors Paradise. He who enters here, leaves wedded bliss behind." The Koko, or in other words the shepherd has not up to this time been appointed, but it is thought t hat (.'bris Fisher and Chas. Shadel are about neck and neck for the honors. The membership at the present time is not complete, but we have received from one of these gentle, man aspiring for the position of Koko a partial list. They are: Christ Fisher, Cene, Lewis, I'pton Stansluiry, Harney Ocker, Chas Cressner, 'an Valkenburg Lhas. I'mphrey, lien Uergmau. Chas Shadel, Sam (Jretz.inger, Hal Kelley, Cal Klinger, Jim Hailey, W Corbin, Lee Lauer, Fltiridue Thomp son. While this is not th completed list yet when completed will present jiiite an array of masculine ability to cope with the new woman. We might state forthe benefit of those unacquainted with the roster used in this club, the secretary enters the name of the appli cant upon the roster with a pen made out of the toe nail of a hen and the ink anetjual mixture o' nster and fox blood.
