Bd "coon" blood made & lively time
on the steamer Mary Morton while she
was ljing at the levee at the toot of Sev
enteenth t treet this morning on her trip
south. Sam Smith is a light mulatto
about 24 years old, and employed as a
cabin boy on the boat; Jim Bigbam is a
waiter, but of somewhat darker hue. The
two sons of Ham have had trouble sev
eral times during the last trip, and cam
very near having a razor flht up the
river yesterday. This morning the quar
rel broke out afresh iust as the boat was
landing here, and a little later Smith ran
up stairs and borrowed a revolver of
Texas tender, and running back to the
caOin deck, he saw Bingham coming up
aloig n-.e guirds with a tray of dieb.es.
Wj-i.om sainiz a word he fired at him,
lac bullet entering Bingham's right
hand; he t!t u; p i .1 to shoot again
but h". cylinder i elf used to revolve and he
t irneil hud run back through the cabin
and out on the guards again. The passen
gers, who were all out in front and heard
the shot, became excited and scattered in
every direction. For a few minutes no
one knew what had become of the bad
coon with the gun, and an alarm as sent
to police headquarters. Suddenly Smith
emerged again and started to run into the
cabin through the front door when he
was caught with a staggering blow from
the heavy cane of Capt, Boland and fell
to the deck. He picked himself up a
moment later, however, and running to
the ouuide of the boat be plunged into
the river and swam around the stern of
the fctranr r toward shore.
The pitrol wagon bad arrived in the
meantime with Officers Etzel and Hetter,
and wben Smith reached shallow water
be walked right into the officer's bands.
and he and Bingham were both taken to
the station. After their arrival there and
while they were waiting to be assigned to
quarters. Smith, who was thought to have
been thoroughly cooled off with his bath
got out and was only captured by Officer
Etzel, near the court house, after a hard
ruu. Bingham was not seriously hurt.
the ball having entered his hand just back
of the little finger, and came out on the
other side. Neither of the men were said
to be quarrelsome, but their bad coon
blood seemed to assert itself. The men
will probtb:y be given a hearing to
The most txciling and tragic part of
the whole affair was Smith's attempted
escape. He raised a window on tbc east
sidi of the office at the station and slipped
out. Officer Etzel ran to the door, but
the crowd was so large that by the time Le
got out the fugitive bad gotten quite a
start. The officer called to halt, but he
paid no attention and the policeman fired
into the air. Smith did cot stop in his
flight until the officer fired a second time,
when the bullet struck and raised the
dut-t at the feet ot the fleeing coon, when
he stopped, threw his hands into the air
I apd made as pretty a stage fall as one
would wish to see. It was only a ruse,
bowtver, as he was not hit at all, but
probably did it thinking his pursuer
would ring for the patrol wagon or a
doctor and allow him to escape. He is
now locked up at the jail.
The residence of Mrs. Eleanor Wake
field on Twenty-first street was found by
neighbors yesterday to show unmistaka
ble signs of having been burglarized, and
a telephone message was sent to the
police headquarters. Two officers visited
the bouse and found that it had been en
tered by burglars sawing the slats in a
window shutter and breaking the glass
so as to unfasten the catch. An examin
ation of the bouse showed that it had
been thoroughly ransacked, the contents
ot bureaus, etc., having been emptied out
on the floor in the search of valuables.
Mrs. Wakefield and daughter are visiting
in Omaha and the extent of the theft can
not be obtained until their return. Chief
Miller is of the opinion that the burglar
is the same one wbo has been"doing" Dav
enport of late and who was arrested by
the police there early yesterday morning.
The Bame methods were employed as tn
Davenport, where all the keys in the
bouses burglarized were taken by the
burglar, and the fellow arrested there bad
nearly 70 keys in bis possession, some of
which they have been unable to have
identified, and may possibly be from this
aide of the river, as all the keys are miss
ing at the Wakefield residence.
The police ran in May Britton and Lou
Perry laBt night, who were out on a jam
boree and making the rounds. This
morning Magistrate Wivill fined May
Britton $5 fur bting drunk and $25 for
keeping a house of ill-fame, and also
assessed Lac. Perry $10 for intoxication
Ous Stenger and August Beatty were
fined $3 and $5 respectively by Magistrate
Wivill this morning for indulging in the
