T..e sheriff's force was defeated, he himself was killed and the outlaws withdrew victorious from the field, though Judge Botuin escaped the ambuscade prepared for him. The plan for the assassination had been long matured, but the noted victim cad long been cognizant of the purpose ol those whom he well knew to be his enemies. Nearly three weeks ago a prominent mem ber of tho Citizens' Alliance at Woodsdale went to Judge Botkin at Ulysses in Grant county, and told him that there was a plot to assissinate him on the morning of Jan- three band so as to prevent tho excution of any such threats.

A few days ago an entire stranger to tho other informant sent word to Judge Botkin that men would be secreted at tho head of a canyon near Calvert's pUcc, one mile southeast of Springfield, at day light yesterday morning for the purpose of kill ine him as he passed along after breakfast, en route to his court. Judge Botkin lives two miles due south of the head of tho canyon referred to, and the road he usual ly travels passes within 'fifty yards of a place which forms a natural ambuscade. Judge Botkin received the second warn ing Sunday night, and it coincided so ex actly with the one which he had received three weeks before that he believed fully In its truth and decided to take every precaution. Monday morning he held a consultation with Sheriff Dunn, the result of which was a meeting of the sheriff and six of his deputies at Judge BotKin's house that night. At 3:30 o'clock yesterday morning Sher iff Dunn and posse started on foot from Judge Botkin's house for the purpose of scouting the canyon, where the assassins were opposed to be in hiding. They reached the canyon just before daylight and went at once confronted by an organ ized force of between thirty and forty men -who immediately opened fire on posse. The fight lastid unt 1 sunrUc. Sheriff Dunn was shot in the right shoulder and at once informed the deputy nearest him of the fact. The mob rushed upon the deputy as he went to Dunn's assistance and overpowering'anJ disarming him, or dered him to "clear out." The deputy started away but hearing firing behind him he looked around and saw a number of men standing over Dunn's body pumping lead into it out of their Winchesters. Khariff-elect E. S. Guymar. was closely beset scd attempted to gain tho top of a bank. Bullets were whistling by him like hailitoncs as be was seen to fall as if litar-ulv shot to pieces, but ho has since bisii found and is unhurt. His fall was occasioned by a cramp in the leg, to which he is subject. The moo nu-i.eu xor him for half an hour a.cr tho of the defeated posse, but f..s.ed to hud him. He could distinctly sou ai.d tiear from the hid ing place to which he had crept, the men who, Winchesters in hand, were hunting for him. They made jocose comments on the excellent mark manship they had displayed when they killed Sheriff Dunn and said that they did not want to go until they had put a few more bullets into their other man. Winallv thev concluded that they had killed him and.abandoned the search. He .,q hrnni-ht to this olacc and sent to hi familv at Liberal yesterday afternoon . , , Piietiw Deputy snerius oiem, .mmuu vu. escaped from the ambuscade and took refuge in a private house in Springfield For three-quarters of an hour the sound of the heavy firing was clearly perceptible at Judge Botkin's house, where he and his family awaited the result of tho fight In fear and anxiety. After the firing had ceased a dense throng of men wero seen coming out of the canyon as if bearing three or four wounded or dead men to four covered wagons which stood on the slope nearby. . Consternation reigned supreme in the Botkin as he and his wife and children saw at a distance the surging crowd appear to start toward his bouse. Suddenly the crowd was seen to stop as if vn hv surnrise and looking a mile away to the northeast Mrs. Botkja caught sight The lirst intelligence of the attempted assassination of Judge Botkin received In this city was a dispatch from Botkin him self to Governor Humphrey. In this ho accuses A. K. Gilgora and S. O. Auorey of Woodsdale and C. L. Calvert, J. I. Van Vorics and B. Orner, city marshal of Springfield of the plot.

The ofllcers rode down pon them and uemanaeu tneir surren der. The two men were armed with Winchester r.lles and were supposed be waiting for an opiwrtunity to assassinate Botkin should he return to his home. They were Charles Orccr and Her man Zandt.

No one seemed to know what action to take. Under Sheriff H. P. Larrabce swore in twenty deputies, but no official steps were taken to arrest any of tho men for whom official warrants have been issued. A posse left this morning for Woodsuaic with warrants.

Tho county attor ney, James IC Bcauchamp, took sides with Guyman and examined witnesses beforo the court at SpnngtlelU an uay. a tncory advanced by the Botkin men Is that the Springfield men joined the Woodsdale force to assassinato Judgo Botkin and thpn to kill Guvman and Bcauchamp to put an end to the contest for the shrieV' altv. Much force is given to this by an attempt mado at Springfield yesterday afternoon to shoot Bcauchamp oy ono ot tno men who was in tho party which killed Sheriff Dunn.

Ho started for his nome about sundown accompanied only by his voune son. but thoroughly armed. Xhcre was much fear entertained that they would bo killed on the road, as it is known that scouting parties were out anxious for an encounter with him. He appeared to be courting danger. Just before leaving hero Judge Botkin entered the itoro where Orner and Robinson were being guarded. One of tho guards was sitting between the two men, his gun in his bands, talking idly to tho crowd. Botkin walked up to him, grabbed tho run and pointing it at him, said: came into office.
