Jefferson City, Mo., May 11. Gov- 1 ernor Stephens to-day pardoned An drew Cornelius, who came to the pen itentiary last Novemlter from Greene .county for two years for felonious as sault. Cornelius is blind, and the im pression is that he stabbed the man m the belief that in so doing he was saving his own life. The prosecuting attorney and the trial judge, together with a large number of citizens of Greene count v, recommended the pardon. His wife who is also blind, came with their two small children and sought the pardon. Chaplain Tike of the penitentiary, who saw them with their father and husband at the penitentiary, was touched with the sad plight and he also joined in ask ing the pardon. Cornelius was unable to do any work while in the penitentiary be cause of his blindness. Kansas Officer Shot While Pur suing Bank Robbers. capture them, but will shoot them on sight. Ed Roberts, the deputy killed, was a former resideat of Emporia, aud connected with some of the most in fluential Welsh families. The sheriff of Marshal county arrived here about sundown, weary and worn out. He has followed the outlaws from Mary ville, near the Nebraska line, until this evening. He was taken in hand by the officers here, and placed in bed, with a promise to call him the moment the men were overtaken or discovered. Marshall county offers $C00 reward for each of the robliers, which has been increased to over $2,000 by personal offers of friends of Roberts and the sheriff of Marshall county.

The horse was recognized by a farmer, who states that it is so worn out as to be almost unable to move. COUNTY COURT.

Emporia, Kan., May 13. Hun dreds of men on foot, on horseback, and in all kinds of vehicles are scour ing the Neosho valley in Lyons, Mor ris, Osage and other counties in all the excitement of a man hunt. Thev are hunting two bank robbers who, at Maryville, on May 0, broke jail with a lot of other prisoners and have so far escaped arrest. They have been constantly pursued for over 150 miles. The two robbers are Jame Murphy and E. F. Stell, and last night they added murder to their other crimes, and have aroused the entire country, so that they are now being pursued by posses from severa I counties in a manner similar to that in Minnesota, when the Younger boys were run down. At midnight last night the outlaws neared Dunlap. about eighteen miles north of here. One of the parties pur suing ran on to them in the dark, and. thinking them to be a portion of the pursuing party, they called out, "Hello, is that you, boys?" and were replied with both barrels of a double-barreled shotgun, the con tents taking effect in the body of Deputy Marshal Edward Roberts, of Dunlap, causing his instant death. He was only about six feet from them, and the charge of shot went through his heart. His companion immediately fled, not knowing that the robbers had but one gun. which they had stolen. He could easily have killed or captured both men, had he attempted it. The robbers fled, and later in the night stole ex Mayor Story Sargeant's horse and buggy and started south, followed by a posses of Morris county citizens, with deputy sheriff Pittsinsburg in the lead. About G o'clock this even ing the robbers had been traced to within three miles of this city, and a couple of hundred citizens started out with Winchesters, Remingtons and shotguns, or any other weapon avail able, and are scouring the banks of the Neosho and Cottonwood rivers. From talk in by the people from Dunlap, it is not likely that the rob bers, if overtaken, will make any ex pense to the state for trial, as" the pursuers say they do not intend to Captured in Kansas Timber. F. Emporia, Kan., M.y E Estelle and James Murphy, the men who broke jail and killed a constable Edward Rolterts were raptured near Hartford and were brought to Emporia at 0 o'clock last night. A rumor that a mob from Dunlap. the home of the constable, would attack the Emporia jail, caused the pris oners to be taken to the Marshall county jail. After their capture Murphy said he tried to keep Estelle from shooting, but he presumed that they would hang him also. The men were captured separateh-, but both were found in the Neosho timber about 5 o'clock and were fired at when started to run. Estelle was wounded in the leg, but both escaped. Within half an hour Joseph Miller, marshal of Dunlap. and M. M. Suddock. an Emporia attorney, captured Murphy, hiding alone in a bush. Soon after this Estelle raised his head from the center of a neigboring wheat field and was seen bv the entire posse, which closed in and took him. The officers of Lv- on. Marshall and Morris counties headed the posse. Fell Into . Wat of Boiling Liquid. St. Joseph, Mo., Mav l-'l. James A.
