THE SEDAXJA WEEKLY BAZOO. TUESDAY, JUNE 9, 1885-
A LIVELY TIME. Wars&w Manages to Get Up Another Picnic. How An Elopement Was Nipped In the Bud. The Result a Complication of Petty Sensations. The Bazoo yesterday learned of (juite a sensational occurrence which transpired id our neighboring town of Warsaw, which is told as follows : Mr. Cbas. Smith is the genial proprietor of a leading restaurant .at that pkice. Like ail well regulated e-tablishments of the kind, it finds the presence of pretty femi nine help advantageous, if net indispensa ble. In this case the proprietor's daugh ters furnish the help, but, like all femi nines, they are susceptible to the wiles and blandishmerts of the opposite sex, and, being handsome, receive a fu'l share of such attentions from languishing youths and dudes. Among the latter is one Bill Rabbins, who runs a barber shop in the burg. For some time past he has been pay ing his devotions to Mr. Smith's ejdt-st daughter, but, for reasons which are probably best known to himself, Mr. Smith does not look upon " Billie " with the same amount of lavor his daughter does. As a consequence he has taken oc casion more than onci to order the amorous knight of the razor 10 keep out of his din ing hall except at meal tiints. The rtsult of which, as is generally r.he cue, is to make the lovers more firm, ardent and per sistent in having their own way, so much o indeed, that AN ELOPEMENT WAS PLANNED. This, however, came to the ears of Mr. Smith, and when the critical moment ar rived he was prepap d and cetermined to frustrate it. The time set was Tuesday morning, the means a rorse and wsgcn. Ac cordingly at an early hour, just as the chickens were crowing for day, the amorous "William might have been seen hitching his team convenient to the restaurant. A moment later he was in the dining room hurriedly aiding his dulcinea to don her clofik, while about the floor lay bundles and packages ready to be placed in the vehicle. But hardly was the couple pre? ard to gather their traps, when the door opened and pater families with a huge hickory club, nade his appearance. Without a word he reached for William, and the way he managed to troiir.ee him was -only equalled by the lusty yells ot the victim himself. Then he KICKED HIM OUT DOORS, and ordered his daughter back to bed. Sore and bruised, lacerated in heart aad body, William took his ieam home, breatlrng vengeance on all stern parents in general, and Smith in particular. Lat-r in the day, as Smith stood in front of McGowan's store, conversing with friends on the oc currence of the morning, his victim, Wil liam, came up the -street, and approaching Smith, drew and leveled upon hini a large revolver. But Sheriff Bob Bibb bad seen the move, and in a twinkling -seized the irate lover 8nd "disarmed him before he conld do any damage. Ai't-r .which he took him before the justice, who fimd him forcanying concealed "weapons -and bound him over to keep the peace. BUT WElf GEANCE was m William's breast, and he determined he would not be baulked. Paying his fine he swore out a warrant charging -Smith with assault, and another charging him with seining for fish contrary to Ihe statute. Smith was arrested and pave bond to appear for trial yesterday, and then re wore out a warrant charging Robbins with -attempted abduction and another charging him with gambling. The Bazoo informant stated that as a re suit the friends of the contending parties had taken the matter up, and about a half dozen more warrants, the nature il which was not learned, had been issued for other parties. The battle m the courts b gan yesterday in dead earnest, but the result has not yet been learned. LATER Wednesday was an eventful day in Warsaw, and fully gave promise for a first class time in the early part oi the day, but as the afternoon advanced the black clouds rolled away, leaving nothing but the echo of their low thunder to disturb the sun shine of pe.iC2 that settled down upon the city. During the early part of the day the constable and his deputies were kept busy enough serving warrants .and subpoenas upon the whole population, and as if to add to lhs excitement Charlie Schmidt, armed with a double barre'led shotgun and fu 1 hunting equipment?, pa raded the streets in front of his hotel, cursing in unmeasured words his enemies, and defying anyone to attempt his arrest. In the meantime, however, the last of his three daughters had succeeded in making their exit, and they are said to to be all safely housed in Sedalia. Be that as it may the Hotel Schmidts no longer holds them and it is not imp-obable that they may yet see the day they will feel that their poor old father, who is one of the most honest, hard workiog meo in Benton county, was far more a friend to them than the giddy throng who led them to ignore his commands and wsste his sub stance. As the day dawned, howeyer and the battle for warrants for arrests con tinued to pile up before the amazed jus tice, some of the more weak kneed began to think perhaps after all old man Schmidts boast "dat I know somdings too," was not idle, and the result was that shortly after noon he was the recipient of a message by flag of truce, that if he would cease hos tilities the enemie's batteries would &!so be silenced and all charges withdrawn. After a careful consideration of the matter the old man concluded it would be the best plan, and the result was a mutual withdrawal on both sides, left his honor without a case after all, and the Bazoo informant stated that when the train pulled out yesterday everything had assumed its wonted serenity. County Court. County court met yesterday in rrgnlar monthly sess'on. 1 he day was principally consumed in auditing accoun's and issu'ug warrants. Following is the docket : PAUPER WARRANTS. Mr..

The Boonville R?pub'ican contains the following particulars of the late dastardly outrage in Cooper couny, heretofore brief ly mentioned in the Bazoo : Last Thursday aftrrnoon a negro, more brute than human, called at the residence of John Potter, who lives near New Pales line, this county, and knocked on the d or, which was op'ntd by li tle Minuie Pofer, who is about e ght years of ag.. Mien e and a younger sister were the only persons in the house at the time. The negro asked where her father was, and. on being informed iba: he 5s away and would not return uut 1 evening, he seized her and ihrrw her upon the bed in the room and at emp ed to outrage her person. The brave little gill made a des perate distance and ihe screams of hersf If asd si-ter finnlly caused the brute to relin quish hi- pjrpose and leave. He was evi dently afraid that some one would hear the r ou'eries and come to their tsi tance. Ihe girl's clothes were badly torn in the struggle and she sustain-d some severe bruises. Minnie made her way to whre her fa her was as soon as pobsible and ioformel him of the a-siult, and in a short time af terward men were on .the trail of the scoundrel, and it was learned that he had gone in the direction of this city. The description given by the girl of her assail ant s emed to fi. a negro named ill Tay lor, who has ben living here for some time, and on Friday morning he was found, arrested and lodged in jail. He denied the charge and said ne had not been awav from Boojville Thursday afternoon. Heating of his sriett, the consuble of Pal-.stine township, accompanied by a number of men, came in to tKe him back for an ex3minat oa, but Sheriff smith re fused to give him up, for fear taat an at tempt would be maue to lyncj him. On Saturday morning he was taken to Pales tine by Depuy bheriff W, L. Collins, and arraigned before Just ce Palters n. Min nie Po:ter wfs brougjn in o ccurt, and im mediately identified him as the man who bad committed the assault, and a number of citizens testified to having Sren him in the vicini-y. An uncle of 1 aylor, who lives near Pott-r, aid that TayLr was ftt h s hous2 on Thurslay a"ternojn and left about three oclcck, .going in tne di'ection of Potter's hous?. chhers sid they saw him coming from that direction, 'laylor waived examination, and whs bound over in ihe sum of $2,000, to appear bciore the circu t court. It was expected by many that Tylor would be lynch-d by the people of Pales tine if he was identified as the man who made the assault, and a feeble attempt was made to string him up. Afcer tlu proceed ings in court ne was taken to a store there and fcur or five men came in with a roj.e which was thrown over Taylor's Lead. Captain Collins immediately grasj-ed it and threw it off, and pulled his revolver, Y.bich prompt actim had theefiectof quieting the would-be lynch ir?, as no further dem onstrations were mtde. The s ght ol the roje frighteaed Taylor veiy consi Jerdbly and be no doubt felt vtxy much relieved when he was plhced on the train. Ciptain Collies arrived here wi h h.s prisoner in the evening and ledged him ia jail agiin. The evidence aga nst Taylor is very damaging, and no one seems to have any doubt about his guilt. The facts ia the cae will undoubtedly be dhclosed at the trial, which w.ll probibJy occur it the next te siou of court, which meets next month, and his guilt or innocense will then be establ'shed. If guilty he deserves the severest .penalty known to lay. So crime exceeds in enormity, in brutiiity and fiendishness this one attempted last Thurs day .arternoca. And il tliere are any pos sible means by which these outrages, which are becoming all too common throughout the country, can be prevtnted, they should hi used. BICH HILL. Aaron Williams hone, "Cyclone," won the race at the Erwin course Monday, in two straight heats, best three in five. The clash which has been by mauy thought probable betw en the operators and miners of Rich Hill district in reach ing an agreement as to a price for mining coal under the new law, is, we are glad to sta'e, not at all likely to occur. A kerosene can exploded in the house of a Frenchman living near Shobe Monday evening about 7 oc!ock by being left in close proximity to a hor stove. The build ing was set oa fire, but by hard wok, it was ex'ipguished by the neighbors after a bar J light. 3 TheRi'h Hill Coal Mining company new shaft hs been sunk to the coal, a depth of about 55 fee, and the work of erecting nec ssary buildings and placing machinery is now in progress. This shaft opens up to the company an immense field of excellent coJ, which it will rf quire years to work out to a distance that will n cessitate another removal of the machin ery. A new jhaft is also being sunk at the 40 acrs, a mile north of the city, t which point the coal is reached at a depth of 12 to 15 feet. CLINTON. Mrs. Jrsh La Due is visiting her daught-r, Mrs. Mes Colt. Miss Fannie Atkins&n arrived in the city Tuesday night, nd i the guest of her grandmother, Mrs. M. L. Thornton. Misa Kate Lewis, who has been paying her brother, Samuel, a visit, returned to her home in Osctola Wednesday morning. Frank Nance, the whilom popular K. & T. conductor, was in this city Tuesday to purchase coal for his hotel at Eureka, Kas. Miss Anna Mi'ler and neice, Miss Sarnie Waldo, from Santi Fe N. M., ar rived in the city Tuesday night and are the gues-s of Mrs. E. Allison. Mr. Chas. S. Robinson, who is solicit ing subscribers to stock in the new Build ing and Loan Association abuut to be organized in this city, is succeeding finely in the enterprise. Between five hundred and six hundred shares have been sub scribed. The new depot for the K. C, C. & S. railway was laid out Wednesday afternoon by their Engineers. It is kcatel on Ohio street between Washington and Wfaier streets. Rock is bein quarried new, and the foundation will be laid at once. The Gulf people are going to have a very fine depot. Another Burglary. Some one managed to break op n th stand of the invalid, J. D. Palmore, at the depot Wednesday night, and carry away some five dollar' worth of his stock. The lc ss is a severe ooe to Palmore, as he has nothing beyond what he has been able to make at -his stand in the past two months, besides which he is an invalid, and has a large family to care for. To rob him is the lowest of all deeds. CROSSBN'S CROSS. An Elopement Extraordinary and a Strange Reconciliation. La-t night there arrived in the city, on the north-bound train from Lowry City, a young and simple-minded looking granger, whose red eyes betokened long and bitt-r weeping, and whose sid countenance wore an expre-sion of untold agony. Accom panying him was one of the best known and genial travelling men on the road John McMinn, of Versailles. The pair ap proached a police officer, and were soon in earnest conversation with him. Intui tively the reporter knw an item was there, and at once mide himself an uninvited member of the par'y, with the followiog result ; THE SAD EYED STRANGER proved to be Mr. J. D. Crossen, an honest larmer, residing one and one quarter miles southwest of Lowry City, and this was the tale of his sorrows : Last Monday he left home biythe and happy as a lark, leaving in the cosy nest a young and loved wife and a fair and idolized babe. Busy with his labors he did not gtt home until Tu sday, and what was his hor ror to fid the nest deserted, the loved ones flown. Crazy with anxiety, and as he state, uniwjire of any cause for so sudden a departure, he visited the neighbors, bnt learned nothing. Finally, g)in to Lowry City, he found his wife had taken the train TO BROWNINGTON. On the night lrsin he came al-o to that point, only to learn his wife and child had gi ne on wett to Clint n. Yesterday morn ing he too arrived at Clin'on, but found no tr.ce of the Joved ones. The day and tha night were spent in agony and tears, and vsterday evening, scarcely knowing wlnt he wss doing, he went to the depot. There he met Mr. McMinn, who, struck by his pitiful condition, inquire I the cause of his woe, and Crosen unbosomed himself to him. A MAN OF THE WORLD, and faoiili ir with its ways, McMinn was n )t long in ascer aining that Mrs. Croen had the day before purchased a ticket to Sedalia, and as he, tco, was bound for the future capital, he offered his sarvices t the lone benedict. They wre thaokfully received, and when the pair landed upon the pUtform and sought the officer he told them that the lady arrived Wednesd y night and had put up at the Pacific house. Her name was found upon the register but she had left again. The husband's HEART SANK, but the officer soon learned that the wife was still in the city, and af'er a short search she was found registered at Wil son's restaurant. Thither the officer and husband repaired nd soon after returned. I WILL SEE 3IER TO-ilORROW," said Crosten to McMinn. cS;e her to-night." replied the practical business man. "I will, then, if you say so," was the re ply. "Do, and let me know the result." The officer and husband again repaired to Winson's and soon returned and the joy and crUitude which beamed from the husband's eyes as he gsasped Mac's hand told without the fervently uttered words Its all right, God bless you," the result CRIMES AND CASUALTIES Two Killed.

The principals are two well-known type setters, Ira Somers and Joseph McCann, and the audience will be mainly composed of the delegates to the International Ty pographical Convention. There is no enmity between the opponents, and it is safe to say that no blood will be shed. The object of the meeting is not to see which of the two men hag the best biceps, but which of them can set the greatest amount of type in a givn number of hours. The arti cles of agreement provide that th type used shall be solid minion, with out paragraphs: that each comrjetitor shall correct his composition at the termination of the tvpe-settinz. and that one line of work shall be deduct. ed from the amount performed for each minute or fraction of a minute spentin coreection; that each com petitor shall be allowed an assistant to empty his sticks : that the copy shall be strictly identical, and that the stakes shall be $250 a side. The printers in this citv and tha delegates from other cities are in tensely interested in the contest, and it if certain that an immense number of them will be present.
