Fnll Detail or the .Murder lMncovery of theliody What the IiKiucNt Ilevealed Tho Clue to the AHmiHuinx Swift at the Jlmittx ol a Mob. BAiNMtinm:, G.v., Aug. 15. In Miller County, eighteen miles northwest of thtB city, Jose) ill Fulford, a fanner, aged about thirty years, assisted by Harry Bradley and Rubin Robertson, two negroes, Mrs. Fulford, a most estimable aged about 48 yearn, who ut the time was unable to turn himself in bed. The trio then dressed the murdered woman and placing the body in an ox curt, hauled it one and a half miles and sunk it in Spring Creek in the deepest part. The monsters then parted, Fulford paying his accomplices 75 cents each for their services. This money was taken from the dead man, who hail earneil it by sewing, then returned home and mounting his horse spread the report that his wife was missing and that .lie feared she had committed suicide by drowning. The report spread rnpidly and the neighbors Hocked in crowds to search the adjacent waters. The murderer, however, wus at once put under surveillance, although he was permitted to assist in the search, lie Bought to divert tho search from Spring Creek and during Wednesday remarked that he was satisfied that his wife was foully murdered. Late Wednesday afternoon the body of the unfortunate woman was found where they had sunken it. A coroner's jury was 'immediately empanelled, which continued its investigation all Wednesday night and Thursday. The two negroes, Bradly and Robertson, and a negro woman named Sukio Robertson, were arrested on suspicion on Thursday by reason of something they had said and they at one divulged the terrible facts of the murder. The two men fully confessed their guilt. Tho coroner's jury accordingly returned a veidiet to the efl'ect that the unfortunate woman came to her death at the hands of the three men named and that they were guilty of wilful murder. They were immediately lodged in jail and on Friday had a committal trial before three justices, who held them for murder. Tho snlient points ol tho confession are that tho two negroes were passing Fulford's liousu Tuesday morning and were by that worthy hailed and employed to assist in the terrible crime. The two men entered the house with Fulford and Harry Bradley, with a club knocked the helpless lady "senseless, striking her throe blows on the head. Fulford, her husband, then soiled her throat and stumped the breath from her body with his shoe heels. and Bradley were then sent after the cart and the three placed the body in it and carried it to the creek, where they threw it in and sunk it. Tho cart trad;, the marks of violence, and the bruises and cuts on the dead womau all corroborated exactly, although the negroes had the woman's body after it had been recovered. After the conclusion of tho trial there was talk of burning the three to a stake in it yard, bui wiser cjuiwIs prevailed and they were lodged in jail. On Friday night, however, Judge Lynch organized his court and took Fulford, the white man, and Harry Bradley and hanged them to a convenient limb. Some of the lyncheis then perforated each of the bodioi with about filty bullets. There is li tie regret felt over the final scene. Fulfoid was a worthless vagabond and was supported for years by his wife's industry. A rumor is provalent that Fulford's father is of complicity, but it is not generally credited. TEN'MiNUTES.

What the Party In Dolncr In a Land or Magnificent IttanerM and iteau. lifiil Necnery Tko Occupation of the Tourists I'Ibus for ttie Future and Other Mattem. Salt Lake, Aug. 15. A correspondent with the Presidential party writing from Camp Stager, on Terry's Lake, Wy. Torrv., under date of Aug. 13 says: "It was determined bust night to move our camp a few miles to where there would be more abundant gra,ss for tho horses and mules. Accordingly nt 0:30 every one was in his saddle and' started up the valley on the right bank of Wind river. Owing to the ram the trail was in splendid condition for comfort and marching. The sun was obscured by clouds, and the temperature was below 50 all day. At the end of an hour's travel over hills and rolling land, Wind river was reached at il ' point whero it crosses through a mass of rocks, known a.s Red Butte. The first crossing was made by fording in a diagonal direction up stream, where the water was so rapid in iw How that one's neighbor seemed to be moving up tho river with the speed of running horses. Soon by it short ford the river was recrasscd, and at the end of another mile the western boundary of tho Shoshone reservation was reached. From this point our traveling was very interesting, but not so difficult; u journey over a scric3 of lofty divides, to escapo the precipitous banks of small streams tlowing from tho mountains into the river. In descending one of these it w:is necessary to dismount and lead the horses. On the highest divide we halted to take in the beautiful view, covering scores of miles up nnd down the river with the snow covered peaks of the Shoshone Mountains in front of us, and those of tho Wiiul River Mountains at our backs. Here we took our last look at tho great landmark, Crow Heart Butte, thirty mile away, which had been in view bince leaving Fort Washakie. Wallowing Buffalo, one of our Arapahoe guides, told us thai it gets its name after a groat battle bet weei the Shishones and Crows many years ago. The victory of theShoshonea was culobrnted by burying the hearts of tho dead Crows in the summit of the Butte. After ii ride of twelve miles we have reached the banks of some beautiful lakes, which are culled after Captain Terry, for inerly an officer of tho army, but now owning "large cattle herds in" u range near by. The lakes are said to abound in large trout, and we expect to spend to-morrow IMiing. Game is not very abundant in tilts neighborhood, but our hunters brought in two antelopes, and it few mouii tain grouse have been killed in this march. Shoshone Dick, a white member of th tribe, who was captured probably from a.. emigrant train when so young as to ha lost all recollection of the event, is one i our Indian patty. He has gone oil' to loo for signs of game, and wo hope for a gun repoit from him. Our camp is nai.ie. lamp Stager, in honor of General Alio., btager, of Chicago."

THE END IN SIGHT. 1 Belief That the .Strike AVill Soon He Compromised. New York, Aug. It is currently reported that the strike is near the" end.
