Butkln Emphatically Expresses Himself oa That Point One PrU- oner iiscur;ed, Four Held for Farther Examination, and Two Admitted to Boll A Skirmish in Court. Liberal, Kan., Jan. 16. The prelimi nary examination of most of the men charged with the Dunn kilting was con- ' tinued at 11 o'clock to-day until January 3. The court discharged Robart ( Hutchinson of Haskell county, one of the defendants, because no j evidence was produced against him. Carey Anderson, chairman of the county commls- j sioner of Seward county, and Lee Estes, an innocent cattleman, were admitted to bail in the sum of 5,000 and the four re maining prisoners were held for further examination. About 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon the court adjourned until this morning be cause the state had two witnesses around the sand hills somewhere that it wanted to get into court. Judge Ellis of Pratt op posed the early adjournment, and the argument became so heated between R. M. Painter of Meade, of counsel for the state, and Ellis that the court had to adjourn in confusion. Painter made a very eloquent address which Ellis denounced "a wad of noise and blow without anything behind it." This angered Painter and ho rose to a ques tion of privilege. He said he didn't pro pose to bo "bamboozled" any longer by Judge Ellis. He said that he bad been s. Hesaid thathehad been all through the case tho subject of sarcas tic and cutting remacks from Ellis, and he didn't propoje to stand it any longer.court coueV marks and further bloodshed in Seward county. "When court opened this morning County Attorney L K. Beaucbamp said his two witnesses had not appeared and that tho $tate would rest its case. Toe defendants' . counsel then demurred to the evidence in- j troducod so far as Estes, Anderson and HutchhisQn wero couforped, and E. W. Griggs of Meade, who J represent Hutchinson alone, made a very j fine argument in favor of his cl ent and J secured his Immediate discharge. Though no evidence against Estes and Anderson ( bad been produced, the court overruled the demurrer relating to them and Judge Ellis then asked for an adjournment of the hearing to January 28. After con siderable argument this was granted. Lawyer Griggs in his argument said that Dunn and his posso wero in the canon the morning of the killing ostensibly to make arrests, yet they had no warrants and were armed to the teeth, and, in J fact, they were thero in the interest , f f their devotion to he Judge of . heir district and the femoral of the j county seat to their town. He said Dunn I and his posse, to all intents and purposes, j were thero for the commission of public offense, and that the number of men they ! found opposing them only prevented thorn from doing so. Had the opposition been otherwise, he said, every gun in the hands Of the deputies would have spoken in thunder tones for the removal of the J county seat. Governor Humphrey authorized the , withdrawal of the troops here at noon to-! flay and they departed at 1 o'clock, the Rock Island holding its train an hour for their convenience. . The four prisoners held without bail will be taken to Springfield and kept under guard there until the hearing is resumed. Ko one fears an attempt to take them from the deputies and a pacific condition of things will no doubt prevail here for tho present. The strongest evidence for the state was given yesterday afternoon by tho now BhTiff of Seward county, E. S. Guyman of liberal, who was a deputy in the posse of Jheriff Dunn whon the killing was done. Guyman is the man who sprained his ankle in jumping down a bank in the canon and who was leu thero helpless and was at first supposed to havo been killed. He testified that while lying where he fell, obscured by the weeds and grass of tho canon, ho saw Sam Minton, Sowcn Chase and By Orner pass by with in thirty feet of him. This was just after the shooting and while Guy man's compan ions were flying over the hills to Spring Jield. Guyman's identification of tho men Is positiro and It is probable that tho state, will rest its case when he leaves the stand. Ho is bing sharply cross-examined and tho highest interest in Ills testimony is shown by tne fact that , the people in the court room aro crowding JL about him to hear every word he utters. ' ffhe climax of the trial, ao far as the state is concerned, has been reached. t BOTKIN AVILX .NOT RESIGN'. The JnJga Says So Illtnielf Xo In To- peka on Lrgalllaslnej. i Topeka, Kan., Jan. 'lfi, Judge Theo- floslus Botkin arrived in this city at 4 oclpck this morning. Ho went directly to the Copland hotel. He remained in his room until a late breakfast hour and then to his morning meal with Governor Humphrey and General Hanback. X Judge Botkin will not resign. He held ft long consultation with General Hanback Immediately after breakfast and at its "conclusion the assistant adjutant general was asked whether ho had induced Botkin to present his resignation. "Botkin does not intend to resign," mid J- inent ho called the Thlrty-sefknd district jv Judge. Jj'Here is a man who wants to know "We Want Your Money ! ou can buy winter goods cheap. We tfant money.

GUENTHER'S, " MOd&wly 310 Ohio street whether you will resign," said General Hanback. Judge Botkin straightened up and drew ' his long Prince Albert coat close about 1 him. Every eye in the hotel lobby was 1 fastened on him as he said: ! "Look at me. young man. Do I look like a man built on that stylo of architec ture! I hare had no thoughtof resigning." 1 Judge Botkin docs not even discuss the ' situation In his district seriously. If tho I recent occurrences have interested him especially, he does not show it now. He is Jovial and inclined to Joke about the ' manner in which ho is compelled to con duct his court. I , His business In Topcka is to examine in the law library the decision effecting a case which has been submitted to him re lating to the sale of county scrip. He will probably return to Seward county to-night. J General Hanback was Botkln's attorney in the impeachment trial and is a close ad- J vlser of the Judge.

WAsnixoTos, Jan. 16. Both the prosl dent and congress believe that Chill hai been trifling with us and that tho little republic doss not .intend to ipolo gize. A wonderful change of senti ment has taken place among mem bers of congress, and those who werr protesting against a war policy and saying that they would not sustain the president In such a policy, now say that we should issue an ultimatum to Chili and give her a week in which to decide what she will do.

The reported preparations of tho Chilian government for war, though lacking official confirmation as yet, aro viewed with deep concern at tho navy department. The reported shipment of torpedoes through Montevideo to Chili has had the effect of warning the navul officers that in the event of war I hoy are to be met by a foe armed with tho test modern weapons. PUmnbtskable preparations for war by Chill are not to be discerned, it is said, such us the reported dispatching of a fleet of tbreo cruisers and a toriedo boat from Valparaiso under scaled orders, wuicn was reported iroia cam luruUsU irtvaic uuiri;: '.'aiuru-;. i.u la the prevailing opinion at tho navy' depart ment that this fleet is bound for the straits of Magellan, which may be regarded to a certain extent as tho gateway to Chili.
