Kansas City, Mo., Sept. 25).?Judges
.lohn Ii. Stone ivml .1. R. Marsh, of the
county court here, quarreled while the
court wns in session yesterday, and with
clenched lists sprang at each other and
struck blows that were warded off by
the ollicers of the court.
The board of equalization recently
raised the personal tax assessment of
marly every merchant in Kansas City.
When tho merchants appeared before
Judges Stone. Marsh and Christian and
County Assessor Rower entered vig?
orous protests. Judge Stone charged
.fudge Ma^sh and Mr. Bower with being
responsible for the enhanced taxation.
.lodge Marsh indignantly denied tho
charge, retorting:
"You're making a grand-stand play."
At this the two judges with clenched
lists sotting at each other. Before the
other court ollicers coul?' interfere they
had exchanged "ritrhts" and "lefts."
Neither landed, and further show of llst
cuffs was stopped by the court attaches.

Booneville, Cnl., Stage-Robbed oa a Heav?
ily Wocded Road.
Uklnh, Cab, Sept. 29.?Two masked
highwaymen held cp the Booneville Htiige
this afternoon, and .1. R. Burnett, a pas?
senger, was shot and instantly killed by
one of tho robbers. As the stage was
passing through a heavily wooded part
of tho road, seven miles from here, the
bandits suddenly appeared and ordered
the driver to stop. Burnett, who was
seated on the rear of tho stage, board tho
order and plunged his Im ml into his
pocket The highwayman thought that
Burnett was about to draw his pistol,
and iired, the charge striking Barnett in
the neck, killing him instantly. The
bandits then secured three express boxes
and disappeared.
Bat nett was a pioneer resident of the
city and a prominent citizen. The sher?
iff is now trailing tho outlaws with blood
hound. Suspicion has fallen on two
residents of this vicinity who bear a bud
reputation. If the highwaymen are dis?
covered tl'ev will undoubtedly be lynched.
