Nkw Yonic. Oct, 17. A shooting uflrnv
which resulted in the killing of two notorious
criminals occurred early in tin
morning in the saloon kept hv Tom Sluing
Draper, No. 400 Sixth avenue. From
what can be learned it appears that dm
John Walsh alios Johnny the Mick, with
several other notorious characters vas
drinking at tho bar, and whilo so engaged
Johnny Irving, tho graceless nephew o
icusk, in company with
Bill Porter, another notorious criminal
and fast friend of Irving's entered by the
It is said that whilo Porter was in
prison in Brooklyn, Walsh made a
1araging remark, which was talie'n to
'orter, and tho latter swore to have revenge.
Others sav that after Porter
hroko jail in Brooklyn, Walsh betmyeil
him. Irving immediately on ceeiiu
Walsh, and without a word of warn in.,
commenced firing on him. Walsh starts
for a back room, Irving following, Jinn
as he went, Walsh tried to dedgo be
tween tho ico box and tho ep
of tho har, whilo ho wua n
treating and then appears to havo drawn
Jiis rcvo&cr. Then bo ikfehed into tho
billiaaxlzoom, wltcrefe fiupposod hotti

onohad fallen, ioUowal by another of
similar character, was then heard, anil
the firing ceased. The occupants of th
who had secreted themsclre) ir
an out of the way nook, then rushed int
thebilliaBoVroom where a terrible sijit
9 met their gaze. Irving was lying stoiiu
dead near tho north wall of the ni 4i
with his head toward the door. Wh hi
lay eoutli of him writhing iu the lust
agonies of death. Each man's pistol lav
near him. Irving's fatal wound was u ar
his right car. 'Walsh had a fatal would
in the left side, and another bullet hurt
plowed through tho middle knuckle uuJ
upper part of his left hand. Irvine's
pistol ,wos a Smith & Wesson, of heavy
caliber and of most recent make. Four
shots had been discharged from it. Walsh
had a Forehand & Wadsworth pistol, and
one chamber alone was empty. Whut
Porter did after tho firing of the first Hhot
by Irving no one appears to know, but iw
soon as the firing ceased he dashed out
fftlythe side entrance, and was running
across the street, when Patrick Leary, wtto !
followed hint and culled upon Detective
llickcy, who had been attracted by the i
firing, to arrest him. llickey immediately
seized the iiying fugitive, and thrusting
his hand into Porter's right overcoat
pocket, found !
son revolver of similar pattern lo Irvine's. 1
Three cartridges had recently been
charged from it. Porter was taken to
Oiliccr McCool, who had tho post on
which the murder was committed, arriving
nn the scene gave the alarm, bringing
Oihcors Price, Gallagher nud Fay to hi
utuUtance. Leaving these three to guard
Draper's saloon and prevent any one from
leaving it, he proceeded to tho station
horn: and reported the case to the fcjer
geanU Captain Williams, who was in
bed at tho time, hearing of the tragedy
hastily dressed and with a squad of
men proceetled to tho saloon when
ho found all the witnesses' to tlu
u flair except one man, named Fay. The
other witnesses taken into custody weie
Draper, tho pioprietor, the notorious bariK
hurglur, Bed Leary, and four others,
Leary, Hays, Yoburg und lioth.
Thcr were all locked up in tho Twenty -ninth
Precinct Station. The bodies of
Irving und Walsh were carried on stretch
era to tho dry room of the station houue.
Here they were searched by tho order of
Captain Williams. Irving, whoso face
was attenuated but woro a smile,
had a heavy mustache and stubby
beard. lie woro a suit of

uround whom they lurmcd a sent i -circle,
and now and then orueked ghastly jokes.
Coroner Martin, who was summoned, held
a preliminary exuminarinn. All those
found in the saloon were examined und
their evidence detailed the circumstances
of the shooting as given above, but no
light was thrown on Porter's action
during tho shooting. The witnesses all
stated that they got under cover and did
not see what he did.
Coroner Martin, at the conclusion of
tho testimony, allowed Draper and Leary
to go, and a permit was given to allow tho
removal of the bodies to the Morgue.
Captain Williams, in searching Draper's

CnioAGO. Oct 17. A special from San
Antonio, Texas, says: In the District Court
yesterday the habeas corpus case of Ilobt.
Ilalport, alleged to be implicated in the
forgerv of a $b0,000 check on Kidder. Pea-body
it Co., of Boston, came up and was
postponed until tho return of 'the Boston
officers from San Francisco, where Hal-pert
has a brother who is thought to be tho
actual perpetrator of the forgery, and who
is also under arrest. Judge Moouan
vacated the original bond of $100,-000,
. and Halpext is now under
a second bond of like amount
A correspondent had a conversation
with F. .Grsos, of tho firm of Gross
& Co., bankers here, at whose instanco
Ilalport was arrested. His first attempt
to obtain money here was mado on Lock-wood
& Kainpman'fl bank, but they refused
him. lie then applied to Gross' for
100,000 marks which ho desired to take to
Mexico and dispose of there to merchants
doing business with Europe, He also expressed
a desire to purchase $3,000 in Mexican
gold, which made his demand aggregate
527,000. Shortly after his departure
from the bank it occured to Mr. Gross that
this man might be the much wanted Boston
forger. JWhen he appeared and was
known under the namo of Dewey
the officers were put after him,
but for tlireo days wero unable
to find them. He was seen on the
fourth day by Mr. Gross son, who followed
him and secured his arrest. Tho
name of Halpert which lie gavo was telegraphed
to Boston, and luckily, just at
that time, it was learned that Dewey, who,
had operated in Indiana and elsewhere,
was really one Halpext, and this was supposed
to be the man. About this time
another Halnert was arrested in San
Francisco Tho Boston firm ordered
both to be held, and say they wanted the
men more than the monov they had lost.
Kobert Halpert held here is beyond doiib
a brother of Halpert, alios Dewey. It is
also concluded on tho best of grounds that
the brother here lias been operating with
his brother now under arrest at San Francisco,,
and tho money desired to bo negotiated
for here was actually based on
the results of tho Boston leather forgeries,
which aggregate about 100,000. Kolert
Halpert will have no difficulty in proving
that he has been constantly in this city
for many mouths past, and ho is backed
by many wealthy Isaelietes here who regard
him as innocent, and so tho question
of his connection with the forgeries de
pen ds upon proving that he has acted us
San Fkancisoo, Cal., Oct, 17. The
Chronicle it its issue oi to-day publishes
a statement to the effect that II ul pert, the
alleged Boston forger, drew drafts amounting
to $-18,000 through Daniel Meyer, o
this city, on "Rosenheim & Co., Berlin, two
days previous to his arrest and forwarded
them, expecting soon to follow and caxh

Bank, was committed for tril yesterday.
He was subsequently brought jnto court
as a witness against John Walters, .the
broker who was arrested on Saturday
charged with stealing and receiving bond
which had been deposited with the bunk.
AVarden's testimony showed enormous
recklessness In stock gambling. He
charged Walters with having incited him
to abstract und dispose of the securities of
the bank und claimed that to Walters'
influence alone was the defalcation due.

lie Btatcs that there are now 75.000 pcoplo
in the Territory with a taxable property
of $20,000,000. Ho regards tho causes
that have heretofore operated to check
tho progress of tho Territory in
well under control. lie considers
tho country properly adapted to cattle
raising. Tho mineral resources of tho
Territory arc rich, but comparatively undeveloped.
It is no unusual matter to
have silver ore assay from $1,000 $5,000 to
tho ton. Tho production of gold and silver
was S0,2J8,207 ; the copper production
was 15,000,000 pounds. The number
of cattle in tho Territory is about 2SO,000
head, an increaso of 300 per cent, in tho
past three years. Ho speaks of tho presence
of the Apache Jndiaus as a constant
menace to good order, a source of '
ual apprehension, and a drawback to settlement,
lie renews previous suggestions
contained in the mcs&agcs of lib predecessors
respecting needed changes in the laws
governing tho Territory.
