The Notorious Desperado, Two Cousins and Hiram Cooper Uhldled Willi UulletS While Resisting Officers of the Law. Lexington, Kt., June 23. This morning determined men to the number of 1(10, all armed with Winchester repeating riflos, came iuto Morehead under chargo of Sheriff Hogge, to serve a warrant on Craig Tolliver, charging him with false swearing in issuing a warrant for the ar rest of the Logan boys, killed several weeks ago. As one of the sheriff's posse was crossing the railroad near the water tank, about fifty yards east of tho Ruines Cottage Hotel, and before any attempt had been made to serve the warrant, Craig Tolliver, who was near the hotel, flred at him. The man dodged behind a pile of lumber, and Tolliver and his two cousins, Bud and Jay Tolliver, and Hiram Cooper went into the hotel. Then the posse camo up in the brush behind the hotel, and immediately opened lire upon the building. Tho house was soon sur rounded, but at something of a distance, as none of tho sheriff's men cared .to get within, range of the deadly guns tho Tol liveis knew so well how to use. After firing had bceu kept up for probably three-quarters of an hour the Tolliver mon attempted to leave the hotel and cross theraiUnad to a hotel on the opposite sido. While making this foolhardy attempt tho notorious '-leader or tho gang which has been sucjTa; terror to Rowan County fell to the ground pierced by four balls from the deadly Winchesters, two going through his head and two through his breast. The others got to the opposite house and fought the posse for some time, but finding the place less secure than they had expected they made an at tempt to recross the railroad to their old position. In this they were unsuccessful, for all three of them fell riddled with rifle balls. After ascertaining that no more re slstanco would be offered, the poss picked up the dead men and placed their on the Hoor of the porch of the CotlagJ Hotel. Investigation showed that only one of the sheriff's posso was wounded, and that was Dr. Brown, who received an ugly flesh wound in t he thigh. The fighting was kept up for two hours, and, as some re marked, sounded like the Fourth of July, During the firing the utmost consterna tion prevailod among the women and chil dren, who ran from their houses and rushed to the depot hoping thereby to "f" bullcta.r Tho nassenirer train irfflcir'itTTJTlencrriToiie u cioca was au- nrcd for two and a half hours on account of the shooting, as the fight began just as iha engineer whistled for Morehead. The sheriff sent a detail of men to stop the train, but the engineer, hearing the rapid firing, brought the train to a standstill before reaching the outskirts of the town. After the light was over the engineer was per mitted to run his train into the depot, when it was immediately boarded by a number of the posse armed with their Winchesters. Ladies screamed, and a few fainted, whilo many of the men had busi ness outside. Tho posso, however, care fully searched the train for one of the Tol liver gang they thought had escap ed. Catesby Tolliver, a boy and brother to Craig, had a hoio shot through the leg of his pants. The posse was composed of the bost men in Rowan County. They appeared to be hard work ing farmers, and were all sober, earnest looking men. Everybody in Morehead seems glad the Tolli vers are exterminated, and people will now breathe easier.

Along the route as the carriage bearing the Queen came in sight the cheering started up afresh, and when she had proceeded a short distance the cheering had become a mighty roar, which seemed steadily to in crease in volume and eventually to be continuous and mighty. The enthusiasm of the people appeared absolutely bound less. The Queen was manifestly delight ed. . Her face wore a constant smile, she bowed and thanked the people, and when ever on the way she recognized any per son she fairly beamed with joy. LOST ON THE LAKE.
