Train Dispatcher Gould Assaulted lamt Night. Cat in the Arm and Braised in the Face. From tbe particulars gathered by a Bazoo reporter this morning, we learn that Mr. Gould, train dispatcher at the Missouri Pa cific office in East .Sedalia, watt brutally as saulted last night and narrowly escaped serious injury. His duties being over for the night, he left the office about ten o'clock for hie home. Aa he w passing through the yard of the Missouri Pacific be was suddenly assaulted by a raan, and in the scufile received two cut in the right arm and a severe blow in the face, knocking him down. His assail ut then departed, and it is unknown whether his object was robbery, or that be mistook him for some one for whom fie was lying in wail to wreak liis re venge. The attack was certainly a bold one, for at that hour there are usually a number o employe? around the vicinitv. Officer SmitT was patrolling the neighborhood, and beard nothing of the affair until this morn ing. One thing is evident, and that is Sedalia has become a stopping point for thieves am scoundrels in their inigrationsflTffd it would be well for our citizens to take proper pre cautions. The police cannot be everywhere, as we have only four men to do night and day duty for a city of ten thousand people. LATER. A Bazoo reporter called upon Mr. E. A Gould this afternoon, who informed him that he was standing at the end of a car waiting for theyardmaster, when some one approached him from behind and struck him, knocking him down and bruising the side of his face. After which the man cut bira twice in the left arm. the wounds bleeding profusely. His assailant then left in the direction of the city. His injuries are not serious though painful. All that have once used it pronounce Dr. Bull's Baby Syrup the best medicine kndwn for the complaints of early child hood. 25 cents per bottle. RAILROAD NEWS. ST. LOUIS, YXXITA AND TEXAS. The Missouri, Kansas and Texas and St Louis and San Francisco railroads, have at last buried the hatchet. Henceforth the passenger trains of the latter will be taken through to Texas from Viuita by the M. K. and T. on the most favorable conditions, Formerly the M. K. and T.did ail it could do to block the St. Louis and San Francisco out of through business. The connections were always bad at Vinita, and the traveler had to race with his satchel some half a mile to the place where the M. K. and T. then stopped. A circular has been issued by the general passenger agents requesting connecting roads to put on full linesof cou pon tickets and baggage cheeks. The circu lar calls the route the St. Louis, Vinita and Texas line, and says that Pullman cars will run through from St. Louis. HOW THE STATE LAW WORKS. When the passenger rates on Missouri railroads were lowered to three and four cents a mile on the- 1st of April, in con formity to the State law, it was generally thought by railroad men that the gross local passenger eamings would greatly de crease. The railway commissioners argued otherwise and thought that low rates would increase the volume of local travel enough to make up for the loss in rate. It is hard to judge from, the returns of th'ee weeks, but at least one road running into St. Louis has increased its local passenger earnings under the new order of things. The Kansas City and Northern has, without additional expense, carried enough or more passengers to bring up its gross receipts to a higher point than they were last year. This ap plies only to lecal business, and has noth ing to do with the through business, or emi gration business, which has been unusually heavy this season. Farmers and dwellers upon the road in many instances use the cars bow between stations where formerly they roaded it, and in general the country folks travel more than they did. Whether this increase is only temporary or not it is impossible to tell. There are those who are confident that if the next legislature should repeal the State law the railroads as a body would not return to old passenger rates. VALUATION' OF RAILROADS.

Through the Jail Wall Went Young Randall, That Banker's Son from Zanesville. Two weeks ago the Sunday Morning Bazoo gave an account of the arrest voung fellow who gave his name as dii.and Ritidall, and who claimed to bethel who have been meddling with peopled Kin of a banker in Zanesville, Ohio. His Mory ws afterwards verified bv one or two here who were formerly flora that place, and who knew him and his lather there. Randall was arrested for st aling a suit of clothes and a valine from a hotel in Green Ridge. He waived an examination before Justice Clark, and was committed to the county jail to await trial at the next term ot the Criminal Court. He behaved hinielf well, and this fore noon was let out in the hall way outride of the irou cage.in order to do some washing. The outside door was then locked, and Sheriff Murray went to a law office to transact some business. This was about 10 o'clock. After the Sheriff had transacted his busi ness he returned to the jail with a bar of soap. When he arrived it was to find his prh-oner gone, and a very sug gestive looking hole in the west wall, underneath a window, showed how he went. He had taken offthe door of a heat ing stove, and with this pried out the brick, which only consists of three layers, and made a hole of sufficient size to admit of the passage of his body. Then, poking his head out into sunshine and happiness, the rest of his body followed, and he speedily found himself doubled up into a little heap in the yard the hole being only about four feet from the ground. He quickly found his way out of the jail yard. The prisoners say that just as the Sheriff turned the corner of Third andLamine they could see him from the window. Randall had at this time gotten out two layers of the brick, when one remarked, "here comes the Sheriff!" Randall hearing this, gave one lesperate kick at the remaining layer and succeeded in bursting through. When he made his exit he had no coat. and wore a pair of cheap brown overalls and vest, and a common cotton shirt. His hair was cut as close as possible. He is about 17 years ofage and very sharp and intelligent. Measures were immediately taken for his recapture, and Sheriff Murray says he is bound to have him. Up to the hour of going to press, however, nothing has been seen or heard of him. The fact of the matter is, the jail walls ! on the ia-urie should be lined with boiler iron. It is impossible to keep prisoners locked up in the cells all the time, and a hole through the wails can be made inside of ten minutes. Sheriff Murray has spent considerable money out of his own pocket in recapturing and guxrding prisoners, and the county should protect him fiom this expense by promptly making the jail retire. Young Randail left home three months ago with $800. He got broke in Kansas City, and tramped to Green Ridge, where he committed the theft for which he was arrested. RED MURPHIES. The Blue Ribbon in the Indian Territory. One would think the Ir.dian Territory would be the last place for a Murphy movement, but an exchange says that the good iieople ol Mukogee have Organized a raid on all liquor selling in the 'territory. and have tclilioned the Indian Agent, S. V. Marslon, to revoke all licenses and for bid the traffic The petition is very gen erally signed by teachers, missionaries, merchants, Indians, and two cf the persons who have held licenses, and has resulted in revoking all but two licenses, with a strong probability that these, also, will soon be cancelled. The following are the reasons given for asking that the trade be pro hibited : l-O. Because the traffic is in direct vio lation of treaty stipulation. 2d. If it were true (which we deny) that this traffic is necessary for mechanical or medicinal purposes there is no occasion for it here, because almost all goods and medi cines prepared by the Use of alcohol are imported and not manufactured here. od. e believe the sale of intoxicating liquors on a phyMcian's certificate in an ig norant and immoral community adds largely the sin of hypocricy and absolute Wing, to that of drunkenness. 4th. Because it opens the flood-gates ol debauchery and crime at our doors, with out any form of resistance. If the ar De partment, with every license, would organ ize a court to try all criminals made by this traffiic, and would furnish calabooses and jails for their imprisonment, and faith ful officers to execute the law against of fenders, we should then feel that whiNi this department was setting mad docs loose among us it was sufficiently thoughtful of our interest to furnish weapons of defense. Lislly. e object because we are of the opinion that the licenses are not revoked and forbidden the prospects of those tribes of Indians, now so bright and encouraging, ill be forever blasted in their utter deg radation, if not destruction.

Accident in Cooper County. One day last week, Billy Tees started from Leven's farm, in Cooper county, to mill, carrying two sacks of corn shortly afterwards a gentleman passing discovered one sack of corn in the road, and on riding about one-fourth of a mile found Billy lv- mg speechless in the road by the other sack. It is supposed that his horse thiew him and dragged him. He will doubtless be able to j explain his condition, but up to last ac counts he had not spoken. Yesterday I had such a bad cold that I could not speak. I used Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup, and to-day I am as well as ever. It cost me only 25 cents. POSSIBLY FOR LOVE. A Suicide Occurring in Lafayette Park The Discovery of Two De tectivesSubsequent Details. "Hallo!

He lav on the' turf, about twelve feet from the gravelled walk, at the northeast corner of the park, and right where the mingling branches of Ti. .i-.b two fine sycamores derser, if possible, than else-here. The hour made the discovery notable, and so, ... ,.... . iiiiikiiii' ii i x aniprii. r iilm bii.iiiii to get a view of him before they awi him. As Egs knelt down Ost's eye cau the gleam of something on the grass and remarked. "Look out ! he's sot a rvoeker i there." Eggs had not fully comprehended the warninir. however, before he had lifted the hat had made, by aid of the match, a horrible disclosure. The man's head formed the centre of a pool of clotted blood, and a bullet-hole, with powder-burned edges, was visible in the right temple; while in the left, right in a horizontal line, was another and more jagged hole. Both were evidently caused by the one bullet. The detectives were satisfied that this was not a cae in their line, and so simply called the attention of the park police to the liody. Then Officer Harrington remem bered that about one o'clock a. m., he had heard a loud pistol-shot from that direction, and he, with Officer Faily had made an un satisfactory investigation in the hope of learning what was the cause. The coroner was. sent for, and shortly after daybreak Deputy Priedicow arrived and had the re mains conveyed to the morgue. The park laborers immediately cutout the sod which aras so conspicuously crimsoned, and re placed it with clover sod, thus removing all indications of the tragedy under the syca mores. Tiie poor fellow who had thus ended his life certainly could not have chosen n more heautif a! spot from which to take his departure. The coroner's examination did not de velop all of the facts in the case which would be of interest. In the pockets of the deceased were found patient showing that his name was J. Hermann Koch, and that his address was in care of II. Bertram, saloon-keeper, at No. 404 South Seventh street. It was learned from Mr. Bertram that he knew Koch well, and that he (Koch) was employed as carriage driver by Mrs. O'Fallon, No. 281-J Pine street, having previously been employed by C. W. Gauss and by R ht. GoluVttin in a like. capacity. It was his custom to come to the Centre market for the marketing of the O'Fallon household, and Mr. Bertram's saloon tieiug convenient thereto, he always had his cor respondence addressed to that place. Mrs. O'Fallon was, of course, shocked to Icarn that Koch had committed suicide. He had been in her employ for a consid erable time, but of late his mind seemed p re-occupied and he was somewhat neg lectful of his work. On Fridi.y last he left the house, saying he had a suit in court, by which he feared he would lose between $200 and $300. He did not return any more. He went to Bertram's that afternoon and asked for a letter, saying that he ex pected to receive one from his father con tainiiigsufficienl money to pay theexiienses of a trip to his old home. The letter, how ever had not arrived, and he went away in seemingly good spirits. Thus far nothing 1ms been learned as to where he stayed from Friday afternoon till Sunday night, but there is a report based on no very definite authority that he was seen in Schnaider's garden with a young lady about ten o'clock on Sunday night. Mrs. Bertram, who knew Koch well, stated that he seemed desperately in love with a girl who, she thinks, is a domestic in a Jewish family who lives near the corner of Garri son avenue and Pine street. Tne lady does not know the girl's name, but she saw her with Koch at a ball at E-cher's hall a short time ago. llie generally accepted theory is, that he was disappointed in his love, am j that, giving the ladv his watch and his keys, he left her on Sundsy night, and, go ing to the park, finished his career. The latter part of this theory is biscd upon the fact that his watch and keys are missing. But it is not improbable that the watch w.-.s pawned to enible him to to purchase the pistol, which was a Blue Jacket No. 2. Let - ters found in Koch's trunk show that his father and one or two sisters live in Berlin, and another sister in Orsova, Hungary. These letters indicate that the family are all excellently educated and refined. Other papers show that Koch was 34 vears old - that he took out his naturalization paers in Santa Clara county, Cal and that he 1 was a member, during the civil wnr, o Co.

The cackling of geese saved Rome, and if the howling of canines is calculated to have a similar effect, then Sedalia can consider herself saved. Yes, we were saved last night Between 9 and 12 o'clock there was a regular pandemonium of screeches, yells, ! bark, howls and groans from all sites and descriptions of worthless curs all over the city. The law allows every citizen to have as many children as he wants, provided" he "totes fair," but when it comes to dogs why that's a luxury you can't indulge in too freely without paying for it. Our Solons thought that one dog was enough for most any family, and all over that number are taxed. The city also provides for a tax on all dogs within the corporate limits. The or dinance should be strictly enforced. They are not only a great nuisance now, but warm weather will scion set in and will have a bdiro'hbi fore we know It and one precious life is worth all tbe dogs in the universe. Shoot em .

One of the largest rooms in the hotel was fitted up with a bed made esecially for the tall ieople, and furniture to correspond in every particular. The bed, some ten feet long, table and chairs much higher than ordinary mortals use, while the largest wash-bowl in the city was ako procured for the occasion. A HspnbHttm reporter was dispatch, d to the Lindell yesterday afternoon for the pur- ikisc of interviewing the giant and his wife, and in company with two gentlemen, called upon Mr. and Mrs Bates, in parlor 13. They were not in the parlor when the visitors were announced, but after a short delay the pair appeared. It was expected that some large eopIe would lie seen, hut when Capt. and Mrs. Bates' entered the room there was a bewildering silence of a few seconds dur ing which the visitor, gazed in open mouthed wonder. At first a very curious sensation was fell as though one were, by some magical influence, growing smaller and then there apjieared to be a magnifying glass lx.twcen.the visitors and Mr. and Mrs. Bates. But this was quickly disjwlled by the genial giant, who, grasping the right hands of two of the callers in one of his mighty hands, and saying something about the rather chilly weather. Mrs. Bates, too, commenced chatting ami laughing at the surprise of the little pigmies who had called , , 1 t I 11 1 to see her, and apjieared very ladylike and graceful, notwithstanding her iin:ueu-e ize.

He also had his suspicions about the real dimensions of Murphy, t'.e Irish giant, after measuring himself against the skeleton in the British museum, and the armor of Guy of War wick, who was said to be nine feet three inches, was found to be several inches short of the measure of our Kentucky champion. Neither Murphy nor Guy are on hand to contest these points, and it may be as well not to raise a controversy. The combined height of these two people lacks just an inch of being sixteen feet, and beyond a doubt they are the tallest people travelling, luey intend to retire from a public life in a short time. Jim Younger. From lhe ?t. Paul Pioneer. Jim Younger, of the Younger brothers, 1 confined in the penitentiary, and whose 'deeds at Northfield are still fresh in the 'memory of every Minnesotian. is in a fair way of shuffling off this mortal coil in a short time in the penitentiary. In his cap ture, it will be remembered, he was shot in the mouth, and the upper left jaw is gone, as is nearly all of the antrum. His wounds have nearly all healed, but occasionally small pieces of bone work themselves out, keeping his mouth very sore and inflamed, these sores are almost constantly discharging matter substance. From the loss of his palate and upper left jw, it is very difficult for him to masticate his food, which is taken with but little relish.. He is unable 0 cat olher thn w( f(K)d wljch can lie taken easily, having but three upper teeth, and these are on the right side of the mouth. A dentist visited him a day or two since to see if a plate could not be fitted to aid him in eatiug, but it was dscided that it would only irritate his month, without being of any benefit. The fact that a bullet is still imbedded in his mouth, at d that it is nearly all of the time sore, with no hope of getting better, and slowly but surely growing worse, shows that it is only a ques tion of time as to how soon death will result from the injuries. Jim is a man of iron ill, and the amount of suffering he has endured already would have crushed one less determined or hopeful. He is con r ,, r - i iinuanr m pain, ana oiienumes very severe. Though he says but little, tt is plain to see that be is discouraged and 1 1 a uown-uearrea, anu is siowiy growing weaker. Of course, it is only a Batter of conjecture as to how soon he will get his freedom through death. He is in a bad shape, and has but little hope of recovery. The State may be relieved of caring for him in a short time, and possibly his endurance and determination may carry him through two or three years at the loncrst.

(..-ifa-Ue-Cli.rtuk-N-. A serious affray took place about 11 o'clock last night, on the corner of Third and Mcssmie streets. It appears from the KVIUIH !ZIIM U 111 lltr: Millie Ulir ... cenitii, inai one .joiiii .utv,niiv, a nmjHT, living in thoouthern part of the city, and bearing the reputation of being a dangerous character, was paying attentions to the daughter of G. R. Chamlierlin, living on t a I... 11." I ir .1. FI Chamberlin had on various occasions inti mated to McCrory that hi suit had best be discontinued, as the young lady was en paged to a gentleman of a more reputable character. At this McCrory seems to have taken offence, though he continued in friendly intercourse with the girl's family. Last night, near the time stated alw.v, McCrorv called at the re idence of Chamber- the young lady was engaged, he would de sist in his attempts to win her love. Cham berlin, at that, hastened to assure the young man that he entertairird no resentment, and willingly forgave him. Shortly after, a sister-in-law of McCrorv called at the houe of Chamlierlin and a-ked hi daughter to go home with her. The young l.dy con cnted, and together thev went out. Cham berlin, siisK-cling th it all wa not right, soon after proceeded to McCrory' house to look after his daughter, but finding her not there, he continued to the hoU'e of a neighbor, where he was told hi daughter had gone. While crossing the street, he was met by McCrory, who as ed him where he wa going, and without wait ing for an answer dealt htm a stunning blow in the fare with a club, repeating the blow a second time, without giving Cham berlin au opportunity to either say a word or to defend himself. Chamberlin staggered home, bleeding profusely. Dr. Long was summoned, and upin examination found that the left eye had been completely destroyed, white a se vere gash almost severed the eye-lid. The wound wa sewed up, but the doctor despairs of saving the eye. Up Jo a late hour McCrory had not been found, and it i thought that he left the city to escape punishment. Like Cham berlin, he is n cooper, owning a shop on the corner of Third and Mesjnis streets. Circuit Court Jurymen.

The thief fllct-d an entrance thrniis!i a window on the we-t side of the hmie, In breaking out a couple of p.ines of glass, and undoing the catch which f wtent'd the win dow. He got away with goods to the amount of fifteen or twenty doll irs. The following in a IN: of the good-c tnken : Three men's coat. One pair of pants. Five white i-hirls. Two calico shirts. One valise, containing about five dollars worth oi goods. One p.iir new buckle shoe, No. 8. in size. The thief put on the shoes, which Were a great deal too large for hiiii.judging from the fact that he left an old pair lying on the floor by the stove, which were about a No. t in size. One of the shoes he left was an old brogan shoe, and the other was; an old boot, with the top cut off. lhe thief thorouhlv ransacked the house. leaving the goo:ls sc.it.ered all over the floor, and when he had got what he siipiiosed was the best, he coolly walked out of the b.iok door, leaving it and the window by which he entered, open. The satchel taken was a bl.ick oilcloth one, with a couple ot red stripes running clear around it. It was the property of a Mrs. Thotnjison. who Iii'es in the country a short distance from Sed.ili:t, and who pur chased the goods it contained during the day yesterday and left them in the shop, supposing that they would be safe. The IadiiM who own the shop express it as their opinion that the robbery must have been committed by some one who was well acquainted with the way the window was fastened, and who had visited the shop, but could call to mind no one whom they sus pected. Be that as it may, the thief has got away with his plunder, and ere this is miles away. The police, however, are keeping their eye peeled for a man who has a carpet sack with red stripes on it in his possession. COLD LEAD. A Dcliboiato Murder in Salino Couuty The Murderer in Jail. There are several on. flirting reports con cerning the munler co untitled near Mar shall on Sunday night la-t. From the latest -vlnt-h we get from a gen tleman who arrived thi morning from Brownsville, it seem that one John Flynn, who recently arrived in Marshall, for the ptirMse of starting a saloon, was refused a liceiiM by the town authorities. lint iiKn establishing a grog shop, he selected Weedon Springs, about live miles north of the town on the line of the new railroad, where some two or three hundred hand. are at work. Trouble wa predicted, and on last Sun day evening about eight or nine o'clock, young Wright, a son of old Adam Wright, a well to do farmer, and a man named Kel luin, both living in the neighborhood, were there on a regular tear. A young in in named Sullivan wa standing peace ihly Hid quietly in the bar room wVn Wright and Kelluiu walked in and began a quarrel with the proprietor, Flynn, about the drinks. YoungSuilivaii remarked that ''If I wereyoii I wouldn't q.urrel about that." Kelluiu immediately drew hi pistol and without further provocation shot Sullivan lead in hi tricks. The proprietor of the shebang packed hi tr.-ti. in a wagon, at once, anil took thero ol to, Brownsville, llv was followed by the sheriff, however, brought back and placet! in jiil. Wright wa arrested a an accoru pi Ice, and Monday morning about II o'clock, Kellum, the murderer, was found a-hep and drunk in a hazle thicket, a half mile from th scene Of the tragedy. Sullivan was a young man of exemplary habits, was not addicted to drink and had no part in the difficulty, except to be the victim of a drunken, murderous brute. HL family, we learn, live near or at Mexico. There is great excitement in Marshall, but we have no fear of a resort to mob law. There i strong feeling also, against Flyni. who wa selling liquor in violation of the law. He will, no doubt, be severely dealt with. These are the tacts iu the matter, obtained from a reliable source. Stolen Bods. We all know how that sharp young man played it fine on hi father in-law, some years ago, before newspaper were thought of. The interesting little story is related in the Bible, and the gist of the joke lay in placing spotted rods where the docks drank. By this little piece of legerdemain thi ingenious young man obtained two wives and a tolerable tairstart in the world. There was an humble imitation of this Biblical precedent this morning. Twogen- tlemen made up their mind to go fishing. The rods and necessary tackle , were pro cured, and while one of them went to pro cure the bait, the rod were stood behind a building in front of the Garrison House. A young darky by the name of Hickman came along and saw his opportunity, and the rods. He levied upon them imme diately and lit out for Darkeytown, where he sold both of them. Al. Conner went to look for his rods, and lo ! they were not. He got on trail of the thief and finally re captured his property. The moral of this story if there is any morality in it goes to show that while a fifteen-foot fishing pole is not the most convenient thing to carry around in a six-foot room, the chances are if you don't carry it with you, that you and rod both will be left.

THIfcF ARRBSlv Bat Tamed Loose Again JumpatheTowa. .Marsh:.! Kelly received a telegram from Mr. G. B. Jones, the City Marshal of Clin ton, Sunday night, to arrest a young man by the n unc nf O. G. M Crellis, who would arrive in Sed.ilia on the 9:30 passenger train tbe M irshal arrested his man when the train arrivrd in the city, and took him to the cooler, alter which he notified the Mar shal of Clinton th.it he had arrested Mc Crelis. Another dispatch was received from Jones yesterday morning, telling Marshal Kelly to hold McCrellis, as he was charged with steiling a valise at Clinton, mil that parties would be down ."ast night to identify him. The Marshal turned McCrellis loose yes terday morning, a'ter he had lain in the cooler all day, mil he immediately skipped nut. When the M. K. & T. train arrived from the south, last night. man bv the name of Iee got off of the crs, and seeing Marshal Kelly, went to him anil told him that he was the man that McCrellis had stolen the valise from, and that he was ready to iden tify him as the man. The Marshal told Lee that he had turned McCrellis loose, and he didn't know where he wa. Of course. Lee felt a little indignant at the way the marshal had conducted the affiir, and some words passed between them. Lee then left and went up town, where he soon after got into a fus with a railroad man in front of the Wine Hall. The marshal apearing on the scene, ar rested the railroad man, and was lugging him off to the cooler, when some friends in terfered, and told the marshal he had ar rested the wrong man. The marshal then turned the railroad man loose and collared Lee, who he succeeded in locking up. Lee rem lined in the cooler all night, and this morning was given his liberty, and started out to find McCrellis. Lee savs that the valise stolen from him by McCrel lis was the only property he had in the world, and as he had expended between fifty and sixty dollar to recover his property, and failed when just on the eve of success, that he was very naturally indig nant at the way the business had been man aged by the marshal. McCrellis ha, no doubt, skipped the town with hi ill-gotten gun, and by this time i. far away. It is to be hoped that Lee will catch him and recover his prop erty, as he appears to be a hard-working man, and one who could illy afford to lose the valise, which contained all of his clothes. SWEET SPRINGS. Missouri's Great Summer Resort- How Things Look Up There.

FRENCH Y'S KNIFE. Does Deadly Woric at Choctaw Station. We learn from the Sherman Register that a difficulty occurred Saturday near Choc taw Station, between Michael Bradley, T. H. Jones, and a man called Frenchy. These two in company with William Ever hertand G. W. Armstrong have been run ning a wood yard near Choctaw station. Very early Saturday morning a difficulty aroe between them. Bradley accusing Frenchy of shirking his duty and at last called Frenchy a liar. The lie was given in return, whereupon Bradley struck him a blow with an axe handle. Frenchy, who had a knife in his hand, which he had been using in cutting meat for breakfast, de fended himself with the instrument and cut three terrible gashes ia the body of Bradley, one in the bowels, one in the pit of the stomach and one in the back just above the right hip. Bradley expired in a few moments. Frenchy fled at once and has not been seen since. The partners state that Bradley was a very quarrelsome and overbearing man, while Frenchy was a very quiet, hard-working and peaceable fel low. Bradley was a large and powerful man, whHe Frenchy was rather mall, and of light statue. The cutting was clearly done in self-defense. Frenchy is known to many persons in this city, as he was employed in a restau rant here not long ago. Denison Xeics.

Died Frank Orates, the Xwsiaaippj Murderer. When fought to Bay by a Deni aon Fosse. From the Dem.on Aeu of yesterday we learn that Constable Spence, Deputy Sheriff Jamesi Massy, Jame Pryor and j, Siais, who left Denison Monday tveninn, in pur suit of the Mississippi murderer, Frank Graves, returned Tuesday evening with his lead body. The party ascertained at 7 a. m. Tuesday morning, that Grave had passed the night at the house of Mr. Targart, near Red river, and that he had left that place early Tuesday morning. Mr. Tuggart had given him a hat in the place of the one he hd lost in tbe fight Monday. At about 10 o'clock a. m., the pursuing party overtook Grtves at a place north of Mr. May' farm, and about twenty-five mile from Denison. He wa ner a house, sitting no ler a tree when the party arrived. He got up, and backing towards a fence, fired sev eral shot at the party, who called upon him to surrender, and he then jumped over a fence into a field, with the evident in tention of making for the brush, which joins tbe field on the further end, the party in full pursuit. A running fight ensued, in which a great many shots were fired, the murderer himself firing seven, reloading his pistol aa he ran. The posse closing in on him, he stopped, taking the pistol in both hand., placing the muzzle of the pistol to his fore head, pulled the trigger, and fell dead, the ball tearing off a large portion of his skull. The body was brought to this city, and now lies in the carpenter shop of Mr. Mills. An inquest will be held this morning. The man is about 5 feet 6'inches high, and probably weighs about 120 pounds. He is about 40 years of age. During the melee, the aaa liviBg at the house near where the fight occurred, was hit by a stray bullet which produced a slight wound in the scalp. The gentlemen composing the party de serve great praise for their perseverance SBd the bravery displayed throughout this af fair. His coat, which was found Monday evea ing, showed conclusively that the report that he was wounded oh Monday, was en tirely false. BRXKNAK'S BULLXT. A Policeman Shoota a Man in Jef ferson City. From the Jefferson City Triune, Between eleven and twelve o'clock last night, policeman John Cohegan, while standing ner the City Hotel, wa attracted by loud shouting and hallooing up High street, near Capt. Mail' store, on the cor ner of Jefferson. Proceeding in the direc tion of the noise, he saw three men moving along the sidewalk on the north side of High street, acting in a very boisterous manner. Others were attracted by tbe un usual noise, among them Dr. V. A Curry of the Jefferson House. Cohegan kept along the center of the street and did not overtake the parties until they had reached the corner of High and Washington Sis., when he crossed and remonstrated with them. On his near approach, one of the party, subsequently ascertained to be Gee. Opel, broke and ran down Washington street in the direction of the Capitol. One of the men followed on a run after Cohegan, shouting G d d n you what are you running after that man for?" About mid way down the block, Cohegan overtook Opel, and at this moment the man who was pursuing came up and struck tbe po liceman. Cohegan let Opel go, and the man who struck him, Robert Brennan by name, tumed and ran back to High, Co hegan after him. At the corner. Brennan turned and clinohed him, and, after a scuffle, threw him in the gutter, at tbe same time, as Cohegan says, cutting him (Cohe gan) with a knife, and slashing hi vest. Brennan then ran down High towards the Convent building, and Cohegn, as soon an he had regained his feet, started in pursuit. Jut in front of Fred. Kolkmeyer's, Bren nan was overtaken, and Cohegan caught him by the coat tail. Brennan turned and the men again clinched for a tussle. Jnst before Brennan seised Cohegan, the latter aid to him, "Don't make another cut at me, or I will shoot you." They ecufled for a few momenta face to face, when Cohe gan got his pistol out and f red The ball entered about an inch and a half below the navel, bearing toward the right hip. Bren nan was then taken to Chris. Kolkmeyec on the corner of Mulberry and McCarty, where a Tribune reporter saw him a short time afterwards. Dra. Willie B. Winston, Curry and Matthews were there, and Father Hoog was also present. Brennan said he was running from the policeman when shot, but this is evidently s mistake, aa he is shot fairly in the abdomen. At the present writing, it is impossible te determine what will be the result. It waa thought best not to probe for the ball laei night, but that tbe best and only advisable course was quiet. When we left, Brennan was vomiting, bat from the fact that no blood was throwa up, the wound may not be fatal. Brennan ia represented aa being, ordinarily, a quiet man, and had worked for some time with Henry Kolkmeyer ia the quarry. Cohegan gave hisuelf ap to Dr. T. Matthews. The most of the foregoing statement ia de rived from Mr. Cohegan, and, we suppose, in about the troth of the aafortanate mat ter. John Hartman was standing ia front ot Fred. Kolkmeyert when Cohegan aad Brennan clinched just preceding the firing of tbe shot. We are informed that he says he heard Cohegan tell Brennan not to cat at him again, bat thought they were scar fing ia a friendly manner.
