Over twenty mots were Ired in the street m the business part o the town. Updrufi was shot through the lungs but. possibly he may recov cr. Muatcrson and his party, who started the row, were allowed to cs cape thereby avoiding prosecution As vet no ellorts have beeu made to capture him. It is said that he ha been in this city since the shooting. There were mimerours rumos curren ou the streets la6t night stating that Bat Masterson had been killed in Dodge Citv. Numerous other men were reported killed or wounded The above special despatch was re ceived at a late hour last night from the Pueblo Chieftain in response to au inquiry from this office as to what had happened in Dodge City. We were unable to reach Dodge by tele graph but presume this is the lates from that place. Ed An Ungrateful Cuss. win Williams is the victim ot mis placed confidence. Several week since a young man, Charles M. Sim inons by name, arrived here from Ot tumwa, la. and being sick, dishearten cdand "broke" called on Mr. Williams with whom he had been acquainted in Iowa. In view ot his straightened circumstauces Mr. Williams gave u his room to Simmons, whom he at tended aud did all ho could to mak comfortable and cheer up his fallen spirits. Sometime ou Monday, Sim t i - inons wno naa oceu nursed to good health, it isalleged broke open a trun belonging to his benefactor and stole $300. Besides appropriating these funds he robbed Mr. Williams of ev erythiug of value he eould manage to walk off with.

At two j minutes past six o'clock this evening a wild cry of fire was heard and at six twenty the entire row of build- ng9 west of the depot building, 22 in number, were in allies. Simultane ous with the cry, great volumes of smoke issued from the rear of Lock- wood's billiard hall. "Within two minutes from the first crv the entire uilding was in flames. A furious gale prevailed and the flames swept across the street setting fire to Fred Geislcr's new saloon and residence. So rapidly did the flames sweep that scarcely anything was saved. Many persons had barely time to escape. The unfortunates and their estimated osses are as follows : L. M. Spcare, store, dwelling aud four other build ing!, $6,000, small insurance. Lck wood'a billiard hall, $5,000, small insurance. F. Geisler, saloon and residence, $1,600, no insurance. Mrs. L. Eaton, lodging house and news 6tand, total loss, no insurance. "Gem" saloon, owned by Spearc, total loss. Colorado Restaurant, owned by Chas. Hand, $600. Chris. Davis, bar and liquors, $700, no insurance. Bur- bridge, barber shop and building, to tal loss. Pat's "Way Up" saloon, to tal loss. Adams Express office, saved only the books and safe. Cook's saloon, total loss. Alex. Rogers, store room, hay, grain aud provisions, $1,000. Coucanuon's saloon audboard iug house, total loss, $5,000. Schwiu gle's wholesale store, nothing saved but a few pieces of furniture belong ing to Mrs. Mitchell, now in Las Vegas. Holmes' lodging house, in the rear of Geisler's saloon a total loss. Immediately in the rear of Spear's store was a small frame build iug in which Mr. Spear had stored a thousand pounds of giant powder, this building as by a miracle is left standing unburued. Many of the sa- loonists and storekeepers had just re ceived a new invoice of stock, not yet opened. The town will be rebuilt as speedilv as possible. The origin of the fire as yet remains a mystery. Joe Stokes. Joe Stokes who has at last met his deat.li near El Paso, was a man who lived by his six-shooter and Jived well. He was born near San Antonio Ttxas. where his father is said to be a wealthy stockman. Joe, however had been repudiated by the old gen tlemau. lie first came to this country about six years ago, aud lived at all the hurrah towns along the line.of the railroad. He was a handy man with a 6ix-shooter, and whenever short of fjuds whipped out his gun and con vinced the man of whom he sought to effect a loan, that it was better to give him the mouey he required rather than insisting on any col lateral, as ho only put up lead for such purposes. It is said that he commit ted a murder in Dodge City a few years ago, and was lodged in jail. One day he pounced on the jailor, choked him and relieved him of his six-shoot ers and belt of cartridges. He then walked out of jail and made his es cape. He spent sometime in Otero where one of his brothers owned half interest in a dance hall with "Steamboat" a Mexican woman of the demi monde, who had a reputation all through this country. Joe succeedpd iu inducing this brother to appoin him bar keeper in the establishment and soon had the owner of the halt interest "froze out." He came to Las Vegas with the railroad, am opened his career here by cuttiug the throat of au American over a game o cards at the half way house, lie wa rated as a desperado and is said to have killed at least half a dozen men Helcdasert of romantic life, ant mauy thrilling incidents aro related iu which he prominently figured. will be remembered that Joe and Bill Stokes were confined in Jail here fo nearly a year, haviug beeu charged with being engaged in the robbery of a train In the cut near this city a year ago last September. Both were final íy released, it having been proven that they were in no way implicated There is strong presumption that Joe was interested iu several of th numerous stage rouocnes mat were committed near this city a year or two ago, Joe Stokes was about 27 years of age, 5 ft. 9 iu. tall,and weigh ed 165 pounds. After Stoke'a release from jail at this place he went south and took up with a disreputable character near El Paso and was aiming to make a new start by stealing cattle. A number of men from El Paso learuining of his depradations visited his retreat and took him and another man aud hung them. Thus it seems that Stokes has met with a violent death at last. Mrs. j. II.
