BENJ. N. BRYANT DEAD.

     Mr. Benjamin N. Bryant of 705 Swiss avenue, left Dallas the 19th of December for Cuba. On the 28th ulto, he wrote from Key West, Florida, that he was well, and would sail for Havana immediately.   The daily papers of the 11th inst contained General Brooke's army report of the deaths occurring on the 8th of January. Among them was that of Benj. Bryant. On the 7th of January, Mr. A. Brownlee, of Key West, formerly of Dallas, received notice from a friend at Havana that B. N. Bryant, of Dallas, was in the United States hospital under treatment for paralysis, and was being well cared for.
     From these reports, it is concluded that he sleeps beneath Cuban soil. Having been a citizen of Dallas for over twenty-seven years, he was well known to many of the older citizens,and bore the reputation of being a worth, honorable, upright man. He was fifty-three years of age. He fought in the civil war under Gen. Wheeler, having enlisted at the age of eighteen, from Georgia. He was born in Alabama, but reared in Georgia. He was a member of the Confederate veterans, Sterling Price camp. When the late war came on, he was among the first to offer his services, but his age barred him. He was an enthusiastic believer in Cuban prospects, and being well versed in the Spanish language, anticipated profit and pleasure from his trip. He was a member of the M. E. church, and a Mason, a faithful, devoted husband and father, accommodating neighbor, and staunch friend.
     Mr. Bryant worked for many years as carpenter, then as housemover and finally as speculator. During the boom years in Dallas, he acquired considerable property. At one time, he was estimated to be worth $50,000. But, when the crash came, he was unable to dispose of a part of his property to relieve the rest, and, like many another, had to let it all go. It was in the hope of retrieving his broken fortunes that he went to Cuba a month ago. Mr. Bryant had the reputation of being a model soldier even among the Confederate veterans in the closing struggles of the civil war.

MRS. EMMA H. MILLER

     The remains of Mrs. Emma Miller, widow of the late W. B. (Uncle Billy) Miler, arrived in the city last evening and were taken at once to the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Barry Miller, from where the funeral will take place at 2:30 this afternoon. Mrs. Miller was one of the pioneer women settlers of Dallas county and was equally as well known as her distinguished husband, "Uncle Billy" Miller, as he was familiarly known, who departed this life at his home five miles south of Dallas on the fourth day of last January, after a long and useful career.
     Mrs. Emma Miller was a native of New York State and her maiden name was Dewey. Her parents, Silas H. and Amy Dewey, were married in Coopertown, New York, but early in their married life, emigrated to Ohio, where the father pursued the avocation of farming. Her grandmother on her father's side, was a grand-daughter of the famous Lord Chancellor Hyde, and the maternal grandfather, a Wescott, was of Indian origin. Her father's father was an active participant in the revolutonary war. Silas H. Dewey came to Texas in the 50s and in 1860, Mrs. Emma A. Miller (widow of Madison M. Miller) became W. B. Miller's third wife. Mrs. Miller had been in feeble health for some time and a few weeks ago went to Mineral Wells in the hope of getting some relief, but she died about noon Friday. She leaves three children, Charlie, J. H. and Minnie, Senator Barry Miller's wife.
     The remains will be interred in the old family burial ground five miles south of the city.

THAT FISHER KILLING.
______

Freight Conductor Placed
Under Bond at $750.

     A negro afterward identified as Geo. Thomas, alias George Franklin, was shot and killed at Fisher, a small village on the Missouri, Kansas and Texas railway, six miles north of Dallas, at 7 o'clock yesterday morning. Sheriff Cabell was soon afterward notified of the killing. He proceeded at once to the scene and began a search for the crew and passengers of a Katy freight train which was passing Fisher when Thomas was shot.
    When he received the bullet wound that at once ended his life, Thomas was staning near the track at the southern end of the Fisher switch. He was accompanied by Martin Smith, a negro companion. Smith's testimony before Judge Skelton, who inquested the remains, was to the effect that he and Thomas were just preparing to board the passing train when three pistols shots rang out. Thomas dropped like a log and the train passed on. Foreman Meade of the Fisher section force, testified that he heard shots and turned about just in time to see the negro fall to the ground. Neither of these witnesses, or any of the others, was able to state where the shots came from.
     The character of the negro's wound convinced the officers that the shots came from above him.
     C. Lindenwood, conductor of the freight train, was arrested and bound over by Justice Skelton to await the action of the grand jury. His bond was agreed upon by County Attorney Allen and was placed at $750. Lindenwood gave the required bail and was released.
     The officers are in search of a Kaufman county stockman who is said to have been in the caboose of the train when the negro was shot. All the train crew deny any knowledge of the affair. Lindenwood says he was making out his train report when the shots were fired.
     Thomas, or Franklin, was recently released from the Dallas county jail. Positive identification of his body was made by Deputy Jailer Will Moreland. There is considerable mystery surrounding the affair which the officers are trying hard to unravel.

NEGRO BURNED TO DEATH.
_______

Slept in a Barn Destroyed by
Fire.

_______

WAS ROASTED BEYOND RECOGNITION.
_______

Two Small Fires at the Same Time
Again Last Night--Other
Incidents.

     Another small fire with most disastrous results occurred late last night. At 11:05, the man on watch at Central station noticed a blaze on Bryan street and gave the alarm. Central station responded and found the barn in the rear of the residence of Mr. Bell, No. 422 Bryan street, wrapped in flames, with no possibility of saving it. The firemen went to work, however, to quench the flames as rapidly as possible, but hadn't been at work long before Chief Magee detected one low, agonizing moan issuing from the burning structure. By this time, the flames were nearly exhausted and Fireman Ralph Jackson entered the smouldering ruins and wasn't long in discovering the charred remains of a human being. The burned body was still very hot when it was brought out. Undertaker Dunn was notified and the remains were removed to his establishment at the corner of Main and Harwood streets.
     Frank McGee was the name of the negro who met death in such a horrible manner. He was employed as yard and general utility man around the residence and slept in the barn on the second floor. His remains were found near the location of the front door of the burned barn, evidencing the fact that he had made a heroic effort to escape, but failed. The fire which consumed the barn must have gained considerable headway before McGee realized his fate.
     The remains, which have been viewed by hundreds of people, both white and black, at the undertaking establishment to-day, present a most sickening sight. The flesh is entirely burned off the skull, hands and feet, and only the whitened bones appear. On other parts of the body, the muscles only protect the bones from view. The hands are clenched and are raised toward the breast or throat and from the throat and breast, the crisped skin and flesh hangs in shreds and small bits, indicating that the burning man , in his agony, tore the skin and flesh from those parts.
     The dead man is a native of Pittsburg, Tex., where his father, a well-to-do colored man, resides. He was 22 years old and came to Dallas last August, securing employment with Mr. Bell, where he has since remained.
The origin of the fire is unknown. The barn was valued at $500 and insured for $300.

A TERRIBLE SUICIDE.
_______

John Paul Uses a Double Bar-
reled Shot Gun.

_______

HEAD BLOWN LITERALLY IN TWO.
________

Brains and Blood Scattered All
Over the Room--Particulars
of the Tragedy.

     One of the most shocking spectacles which has been brought to an undertaking establishment in this city in a long time is the mutilated remains of John Paul, who committed suicide early last night at the McCommas place, four miles north of town on the Richardson road. The instrument of death used by Paul was a double-barreled shotgun. He placed the muzzle of the gun to the right side of his face and with the toes of his right foot, pulled both triggers. The charges literally tore his head in two and when one of Undertaker J. E. Dunn's assistants arrived on the scene thirty minutes later, the man was lying in a large pool of blood, and his brains and the blood vessels of his head were scattered all over the room and some had even splattered the walls. The remains were brought to this city last night and dressed for burial in Undertaker Dunn's establishment at the corner of Main and Harwood streets. While the clever art of undertaking has patched upon the wounds so that they can be only faintly outlined, still the evidences of the terrible mental suffering which the man must have endured before driven to this rash act are there and one glance tells the story.
     Mr. Paul was well known in the neighborhood, and in the house in which he died, but no cause can be assigned for the act except general despondency. He came to the McComas place last Friday. He had been through a severe sick spell and was still suffering from the ravages of la grippe when he arrived there. He had been taking medicine regularly and was in a very serious mood, but the family ascribed it to sickness. Last night, just after supper, he sat before the family fireplace smoking a pipe. It didn't draw well, and he got up and looked behind a closet door where the shotgun was kept. Some one asked him what he was looking for and he replied by saying that he wished a broom straw. One was brought him, the pipe was cleansed and the conversation resumed, but it was noticed that he kept his eye on the door behind which was the shotgun.
     About 9 o'clock, the family retired. His room was opposite the family room. An hour or so after retiring, Mr. McComas heard him rumbling around in his room. Mr. McComas thought he was taking a dose of medicine and he opened his door so that he might have a light from the family room. A few minutes later, the report of the discharged shotgun aroused the household and the family rushed into Paul's room to find the scene above described. Justice Skelton and Undertaker of this city were notified and repaired at once to the scene.
     Paul was apparently about 40 years of age. He had been married but about some time ago, his wife gave birth to twins and died. This fact prayed upon his mind and his recent illness drove him to desperate despondency.
     His twin children are living with relatives in Wylie and he has a brother living in Hillsboro, who has been notified of his untimely end.

AN EAST DALLAS KILLING.
________

Thurin E. Lewis Shot by Rob-
ert Elliott.

_______

DOUBLE BARRELLED SHOTGUN USED.
_______

Killing Grew Out of Alleged In-
sults Offered to the Slayer's
Mother--The Particulars.

     A sensational killing occurred in East Dallas late yesterday afternoon. About 5 o'clock Thurn E. Lewis, of No. 107 Benson street, a crayon artist by profession, but lately employed as night watchman at the East Dallas compress, was shot and killed by Robert Elliott, a young man about 20 years of age and a well-digger by trade. The cause of the shooting is said to have grown out of alleged insults offered Elliott's mother by Lewis.
     Lewis was 47 years of age yesterday. The birthday was being celebrated in a small way by the family at a 5 o'clock dinner, Lewis' occupation calling him to work at 5:30. Among the edibles on the table was a blackberry pie or something of the kind like "mamma used to make," and Lewis partook of it with great relish, saying that it reminded him of boyhood days in old Tennessee. After finishing the meal, he jocularly remarked to his family that he didn't see any birthday presents; that he was as young as he ever was and would appreciate them just as much, etc., picked up his hat and started to his work in the best of humor and at peace with all the world.
     Lewis and Elliott were next door neighbors. As the former reached the street, the latter, who was standing in front of his own home with a double-barrelled shotgun in his hand, leveled the gun and fired. The charge flew wide of the mark, and Lewis, seeing that he was the object of the attack, ran up the street toward the compress. His slayer pursued him. When Lewis reached the corner, he turned to the east, evidently intending to go around the back way to his home. Just as he turned the corner, another shot was fired, but it crashed through the glass window of the house around which Lewis had turned and barely missed a child resting in its mother's arms. Lewis continued his flight, but Elliott retraced his steps. Lewis ran around back of the houses and into the back yard of his neighbor's house, which was separated from his own by a high board fence and a little alley. He was a sufferer from a lame back and could not jump the fence, so he crawled under. As he rose up, he was met by Elliott who had run around the front way to head him off. Elliott leveled his gun and fired again, the charge, or part of it, taking effect in Lewis' head. The latter raised his arms to his head, cried, "Oh, my God," and staggered to his knees. He regained his feet, and started though his back yard to his house, but had just reached the back corner when he stumbled over a bale of hay and fell dying. Life was extinct a few seconds later, and when a Times Herald reporter, who was in the neighborhood at the time and heard the shots fired, arrived on the scene, his lifeless body was lying across the bale of hay, the head resting in the arms and blood was gushing from three wounds in the head. The gun, a No. 10 bore, was loaded with buckshot, and three of them took effect.
     The body was picked up and carried into the house and two hours later, was viewed by a corner and removed to the undertaker's establishment of J. E. Dunn & Co., corner Main and Harwood streets.

     Lewis leaves a family in a pitiable plight. Previous to securing employment at the cotton compress, he had been without work for a good while and his family was reduced to almost destitute circumstances. He was a sufferer from some spinal trouble and couldn't perform manual labor. His wife is a chronic invalid and a child is mentally affected.
It took all that he made for living expenses and his family, consequently, are left without a penny and are not even provided with the necessities of life. The mother and family of the dead man live in Erin, Tennessee. A brother lives in Van Alstyne and will arrive this afternoon to make arrangements for the funeral.

______

     There was a large crowd collected about the premises, and, of course, there were many different versions of the affair. Lewis' occupation compelled him to carry a pistol. Some said that he had the pistol on his person when killed; others that it was in his house, but certain that it wasn't fired, as every chamber was loaded.

_______

     Mr. Dick Chamberlain, who lives in that neighborhood and has helped the Lewis family over many tight places, said: "From what I can learn, careful preparations were made for the killing. The slayer had his horse saddled, standing in front of his house and was close to it when he fired the first shot. After emptying two barrels of his gun in vain, another shell was given him which proved more successful. Mr. Lewis heard the shots, but did not know that her husband was involved until his lifeless body was brought into the house. It is a shocking affair. There isn't a poorer home in the city. Lewis died leaving his family in a poverty-stricken condition. They haven't a penny. After the shooting, the wife of Lewis and her children came to my house. Mrs. Lewis is an invalid, and has been for a long time. There are three small children and a good-sized boy who has been a helpless invalid almost from birth. Lewis was a crayon artist by profession, or enlarged pictures of something of the sort. He had been idle for several weeks. Finally, he secured employment as night watchman at the compress. Lewis was 47 years of age and a Tennessean by birth. Coming to Texas, he first located in Van Alstyne, years ago, and filled the office of constable there for several terms, I believe. He moved to Sherman from Van Alstyne, lived there several years, and then came to Dallas. He was unable to do heavy work on account of being afflicted with a weak back. By profession, he was a retoucher and enlarger of pictures."

_______

     Mr. H. L. McCorkle, who lives a short distance from the scene of the shooting, said:
     "Mrs. Elliott, the mother of the young man who did the shooting, came to my house directly after the killing of Lewis. She is a poor woman, hardworking and industrious. She stated that Lewis had insulted her several times of late. Her son, Robert, is a well-digger and a hard-working young man. He came from Fort Worth yesterday, I believe, and his mother told him that Lewis had offered her gross insults during his absence from home, and he avenged the alleged insults. One of the shot fired broke a pane of glass in a window near my residence and grazed the face of a child in the arms of its mother."

_______

     Young Elliott was arrested by Police Officer Henry Tanner and brought to the city hall calaboose. He was afterwards transferred to the county jail, but when seen by a reporter, refused to make a statement.

EUGENE STORER WAS KILLED
______

Shot by a Fourteen Year Old
Negro.

_______

FOURTH KILLING IN A WEEK.
_______

The Young White Man Was "Guy-
ing" the Negro Boy About a
Shoestring.

     The fourth killing and the sixth shooting that has occurred in Dallas during the past week, happened at 8:30 o'clock last night in Louis Baratini's butcher shop at Ross avenue and Central railroad. As a result, I. Eugene Storer, a young white man, not yet of age, is lying at his boarding house pale in death, while a brother of his in Dallas, and his parents at Terrell, are bitterly lamenting his untimely end.
     Young Storer, who was only eighteen years of age, was shot and killed by Will Henderson, a fourteen-year-old negro boy. The two had been thrown together often during the day and had quarreled over trivial matters several times. They met at Baratini's meat market about 8 o'clock and immediately commenced "jawing" each other. The negro became terribly incensed several times.
     Storer, so the eye witnesses say, finally commenced "guying" the negro boy about a dilapidated-looking shoestring the latter had. The young negro's anger grew fiercer and finally, breaking all restraint, he drew a 38-caliber revolver from his pocket and fired it point-blank at Storer's breast. The bullet went straight to the heart and Storer fell to the floor, dying almost instantly.
     Immediately upon firing the shot, Henderson made a dash for the street, running like the wind. A few rods from the meat market, he was intercepted by two men who had heard the shot. They caught an insecure hold on him, but he soon jerked himself free and dashed wildly up the street, making his escape around some near-by houses, and, for the time being at least, effectually evading capture.
The body of young Storer, was soon after the killing, taken to his boarding house at Allen and Juliet streets, where the young man lived with his brother, Charles Storer.
     Storer's parents live at Terrell. News of their son's death was sent them as soon after the shooting as possible. They are expected to arrive in Dallas this morning, when arrangements for the funeral will be completed..
     Young Storer worked at the collar-makers' trade, and was regarded by those who knew him as a very exemplary young man. His "guying" of the negro was taken by those who heard it, as only a boyish prank. His brother, Charles Storer, works at Tenison's saddlery establishment on Elm street. His father is a contractor and builder, and for several years was foreman for Brown & Dabney.
     News of the sad affair was telephoned the police station a few moments after it happened. Mounted Officers Wilson and Lewis hurried to the scene and at once gave chase to the escaped negro. They prosecuted a vigorous search all over that neighborhood. They were able to find where Henderson had been, but were unable to find Henderson. Still, they patiently kept up the pursuit and were joined by other officers.

FOUND DEAD IN BED.
_______

C. J. Stockbridge, a Well Known
Printer, "Cashed in" Yesterday.

     C. J. Stockbridge, a printer by trade, who had been living in Dallas for nearly a year, was found dead in his room at the residence of C. L. Martin, No. 518 Commerce street, last night shortly after 9 o'clock by Mrs. Martin. She gave the following account of the affair:
     "Early in the evening, I was told that Mr. Stockbridge, who, together with his cousin, Mrs. George Barnard, had been occupying rooms on the second floor for several months, was asleep. Shortly after that, I found an empty morphine bottle on a table in another room. I immediately investigated. As soon as threw down the bed clothing from Mr. Stockbridge's face, I saw that he was dead. One side of the face had turned blue, and I judged from this that he had been dead for several hours."
     Stockbridge was apparently about 50 years old, and is said to have been unmarried. For some time, he had been "subbing" in The News composing room, and at one time was in the employ of The Galveston News. He was a member of local typographical union No. 173.

PROBABLY FATAL ACCIDENT.
_______

Frank Miller, a Negro, Torn with
Shot, May Die.

     A negro by the name of Frank Miller, employed as commissary guard on the Texas Trunk construction train No. 1, W. R. Bowen foreman, accidentally shot himself with a double-barreled shotgun last night about 9 o'clock while seated in one of the cars in the train as it stood at the corner of Trunk avenue and Commerce street. The gun was loaded with No. 6 shot and the charge nearly tore off the left arm in addition to making a hole in the left breast about two inches below the nipple large enough to permit of the entrance of a man's fist. He was conveyed to Parkland hospital, and at that place at midnight, it was declared that his death was the question of but a very brief space of time.
     Miller is about 20 years old, and was born and raised in Kaufman county. He had been employed on the construction train for about a month, and had no relatives living. The construction train arrived in Dallas yesterday morning from a point below the town of Cedar in Kaufman county, where its crew has, for several weeks, been at work on the Trunk extension.

A NOTED PRINTER
_______

An Overdose of Morphine Caused the
Death of C. J. Stockbridge.

     Justice J. M. Skelton held an inquest yesterday morning over the body of C. J. Stockbridge, the old printer, who was found dead in bed in his room at No. 518 Commerce street, last Friday night. The verdict was that death was caused by an overdose of morphine. The justice exhibited to a reporter for The News a bottle of morphine which yet contained a few grains of the drug, and a bottle full of laudanum, both of which he said were found in Stockbridge's room. The body was interred yesterday by Dallas Typographical union No. 173.
     Probably no printer who ever lived in Texas was more widely or better known than "old Stock," as he was affectionately called by his brother craftsmen.
     Years ago, it is said, he was a district judge at some South Texas town. Later, he drifted to New York. In a mission at that place, seven years ago, he became a devout Christian and remained so until the day of his death.

FRANK MILLER DEAD.
_______

A Verdict in Accordance with the
Facts Returned.

     Frank Miller, the negro who accidentally shot himself with a double-barreled shotgun in a car on the Texas Trunk construction train standing at the corner of Trunk avenue and Commerce street Friday night, died of his wounds at Parkland hospital early yesterday morning. Justice W. M. Edwards viewed the remains during the morning and returned a verdict in accordance with the facts.
     Miller, who was about 20 years old, was literally torn to pieces by the shot. One charge made a ghastly hole in his left breast just under the nipple. The other almost tore the left arm from the body, leaving it hanging by a mere shred. The gun was loaded with heavy charges of No. 6 shot.

A widow survives him.

JOHN NORVELLE DEAD.
______

He Was Shot and Killed in East Dallas
Last Night.

     John Norvell was shot and killed on Elm street, between Good and Hawkins streets, at 8:30 o'clock last night. Dan Foreman funs the saloon at 664 Elm street, and the first shot was fired from the side door of the saloon. Norvelle ran west on Elm street about 100 yards, when he sank down on the sidewalk and died.
     Police Officer McCartney heard the shots and ran to the scene of the shooting. Norvelle gasped once or twice and then died after the officer reached his side. Justice Skelton was notified and an alarm sent in to police headquarters. Chief Cornwell responded and the justice and the head of the police department made good time in getting there. Justice Skelton viewed the remains. Then, the body was sent to the morgue and the justice made a quiet investigation on his own hook. Chief Cornwell pursued the same tactics. It was stated that a woman and a negro partner witnessed the shooting. The former was placed under police surveillance and the latter was notified to appear in Justice Skelton's courtroom to-day and make a statement under oath.
     An undertaker had loaded the body of the dead man on a wagon and was making preparations to start down town to the morgue, when The News representative made his appearance. A motley crowd of men, women and children were present. A short distance east of the group, two young women were endeavoring to console a stricken sister. Her cries were heartrending and could be heard for blocks away. "Oh, my God, he is dead. Has it come to this? My husband, my husband, why did they kill you?" She screamed at the top of her voice. Her piteous cries and tearful lamentations aroused the sympathy of all who were within hearing distance.
     "That's young Jack Norvelle's wife," remarked a bystander to The News representative, as the widow's kind-hearted companions led her away from the scene of bloodshed to the home of a neighbor. Just one block east of the Forman saloon building, a middle-aged man was heaping curses upon the slayer of young Norvelle. At times, he would weep as if his heart would break. Then, his rage would overcome his grief, and at times, he was almost uncontrollable.
     "That's Charles Norvelle, young Jack's father," whispered the guide who was piloting The News representative about. Finally, the frenzied father of the dead man was led away to his lodgings and the crowd dispersed. Officer McCartney said to a News reporter:
     "Norvelle was shot twice. The first ball lodged in his thigh. The second entered his left side in the region of the heart. He must have been running west on Elm when the fatal shot struck a vital part. He topped over and died. I searched the body and found no weapon of any sort. The shooting was done with this (exhibiting a 38-caliber gun). A woman had this pistol, but later, she gave it up and I held her as a witness."
     Mrs. John Norvelle has rooms at 665 Main street, not far from the place on Elm street, where her husband died by violence. The woman in charge of the rooms stated that young Norvelle was a stranger to her. "His wife rented rooms from me and makes her own living," she said. "I saw Norvelle to-day for the first time, and it has been my understanding that he was working at his trade in Fort Worth. The couple have one child."

     A deputy sheriff was holding forth in Sheriff Cabell's office at the courthouse at 8:40 last night. The telephone rang and the deputy answered the call.
     "Is Sheriff Cabell in?" was asked.
     "No," was the response.
     "Well, a man has been killed out here on Elm street in East Dallas."
     "Who killed him?"
     "Me, Dan Foreman. Tell the sheriff I am coming down to the jail to give myself up."
     Foreman was as good as his word. He started down town, but fell in with Police Officers Thompson and Pegues, who arrested him and then escorted him to the jail. He claims that the killing was justifiable and that he acted in self-defense.

A NEGRO SHOT AND KILLED.
______

Dr. H. E. Wicks Made a Break for
Liberty and Lost His Life.

     Dr. H. E. Wicks, alias John Williams, a colored prisoner, was shot and killed yesterday afternoon between 12 and 1 o'clock on Houston street, near the front gate to the jail yard.
     Bailiff Herman Muller did the shooting. On Wednesday, Wicks was arrested on a charge of forgery and waiving examination before Justice of the Peace W. M. Edwards, was granted bail in the sum of $500, but failing to give bond, he was sent to the county jail. Yesterday, he was out in charge of Bailiff Muller, ostensibly to hunt bond. Bailiff Muller, at the time named, was taking Wicks back to jail, having also two negroes handcuffed together, whom he was taking from the criminal district courtroom to jail. About thirty yards behind Muller and his partner, Deputy Sheriff Whitt Webb also had two prisoners whom he was taking to the jail.
     When Muller and his prisoners reached the gate opening into the jail yard, but Wicks broke off down Houston street in a run, Bailiff Muller started in pursuit of Wicks, calling upon him three times to halt, but unheeding the command, Wicks kept running, going at full speed, when Bailiff Muller fired the ball from his pistol, entering the body of Wicks under the left shoulder blade, going through the body near his heart and passing out in front. Wicks fell forward on his face, mortally wounded, living only about an hour.
     Bailiff Muller surrendered himself at once, went before Justice of the Peace W. M. Edwards, waived examination, and on agreement of the state's counsel, he was granted bail, Justice Edwards fixing the amount at $500, which was given at once, and Bailiff Muller released.
     The body of Wicks is now at the county undertaker's and to-day, Justice of the Peace J. M. Skelton will hold an inquest.
