MURDER BY WHOLESALL.
FOUR MEN KILLED IN A MISSISSIPPI
TOWN IN A FEW HOURS.
One Was a Family Feud, Another a Row
Between Colored Men, and the Gambl
ing Fraterulty Furnished the Rest of
the Excitement-The Sherifl Busy.
LULA, Miss., Sept. 28.-This region is
suffering from an epidemic of murders,
and people are bafl:ming to feel that
something ought to be done about it.
The trouble began on Satunla‘y night,
when three men were killed in the street
g&hung (l)l‘ the most dcap’erat.? fl“leu‘-riptlon.
on 'flfi' bouvnwo nvolv narow
with %hn ‘ard, iiskey was the prim
ary canse, tangled up wlt& an old family
feud which has been efx wted to make
trouble some day. They both went armed
in mg‘ci‘fntlon of trouble, and when they
met Saturday night bofan firing at lmnfi
range, closing up rapldly until Harris fe
dying on the pavement,
Another feud broke out in the Hall
family, colored, when Cooper Hall, a des
perado of the worst type, shot down in
cold blood his brother<in-law., He is in
hiding but will be captared and wr‘v
likely, hung without waiting for legal-
Pprocess,
Then the gamblers had their turn,
Moses Osborne, one of the best known
men in town, who had a strong element of
sporting blood in his veins, lost some of it,
and his life, in a dispute with a gambler
over a game of dice. Both were armed,
but the gambler was quickest with his
weapon,
Yesterday the gamblers observed the
Sabbath after their fashion, and as the re
sult of a dispute over cards another mur
der was committed, this time not of the
duello order. James Patton, one of the
most darilui gamblers, offended a brother
artist in his line, who hid by the street
where Patton must pass going home and
shot him from behind. b 3 7
Two of the murderers are in cusmdi and
the sheriff is hunting for the others’ From
the feuds which four murders will ecreate
or emphasize other desperate encounters
are almost certain to grow., The J)eoplc of
the commuuiry are much alarmed,

be satisfied if Prof. Briggs will re-aflinn
his declaration of faith made to the «j‘l“w
tors of Union Seminary, which pi®ved
entirely mtlslm-tori' to them. ‘T'o this re
aflirmation Prof. Driggs of course could
not object,
Dr. Hrigg‘: was asked about the ruwer
by a Press NEWs reporter, but said: *“As
the suggestion is entirely hyv»tlu-ticnll
cannot decide it off hand. KEverything
would dereml upon the questions asked.
I connot be expected to commit myself till
I Lave seen the questions.”

A Secret Meeting in an Vacant Tenement
on Florence Street Yesterday- Pros
pect of the Biggest Kind of a Split ia
the Tenth Ward,
There is an empty tenement on Florence
street near Kossuth, Yesterday it wore an
air of undisturbed tranquility and its gap

just as if the destinies of the Tenth ward
were not in a measure linked with its own,
Mysterions figures glided in by ones and
twos and three,unseen except by the sharp

Sy-and-by when a considerable group
had been fath('l'ed in the deepest recesses
of the building, P. J. Curran, the Julian
street barber, took the chair; John Mel
