Aurora, Mo., June 16 A row oc
curred here while a circus was load
ing on cars preparatory to leaving
town between some natives and fol
lowers of the show. Dave Tunnel
and Will Fleming, two local men,
thought they had not been treated
right, and sought satisfaction. First
there was a quarrel and then a fight.
The result was that three of the cir

one ot the natives got a puncture in
the heel from a bullet.

Whether the selection of Washing
ton will affect the tentative selection
by Russia of M. Nelidof as one of its
envoys is not known. Private ad
vices reaching here from Europe to
day say Emperor Nicholas has been
considering General Kuropatkin as
a possible associate for M. Nelldoff,
but that nothing is said on the sub
ject in St. Petersburg lest Kuropat
kin's enemies rally against him. The
fact that General Kuropatkin pos
sesses the confidence of the Japanese
and his wide knowledge of Asiatic
politics gained through long exper

quaintance with Russian policies in
Persia and his experience as govern
