OUR CITY'S BRAVES.
Fifty of Them Stand by and Look on
While Three Villains try to
Annihilate John Fitz
patrick, Out the Plucky Officer Does Them
Last evening James Brown, James
Murphy and Charley Kinzer were trying
to raise a quarrel among themselves.
Officer John Fitzpatrick being unable te
hush them up attempted to arrest them.
Irown is a great big stout ruffian, and
Murphy thinks there is no man in the
county to equal him in the ring and is a
villain, and Kinzer is a hard man also,
and they were all drunk enough to be
full of fight.
Fitzpatrick attempted to arrest Brown
first who resisted; John struck the man
with his billy over the right eye a couple
of times and downed him, but Brown
swore he would not be taken alive and
seized Fitzpatrick by the throat and
kicked Lini in the breast savagely. The
call of the officer for help did not receive
the least response from the cowardly
crowd, and while he was overcoming
Brown, Murphy slipped up and wrench
ed his billy from him and with this
cleared his (Murphy's) way through the
crowd like a person would sweep feath
ers on a im.rble flour. Mr. Fitzpatrick
then left Brown and followed Murphy,
and with his gun in Murphy's face order
ed him to give up the billy. Murphy,
told him to shoot and at the same time
tripped him with his foot, but the orncer
se:zed Murphy as he fell and the two
came down together, with Fitzpatrick on
top, and another desperate fight ensued,
with Murphy with the billy making every
effort to lay 3Ir. Fitzpatrick out.
At this state of things, Bill Ellington
came to the officer's assistance and took
the billy from Murphy; but meanwhile
Kinzer had seen Murphy with the billy
and called out ''I'll stay with you boys"
and had in a way lent l is influence for
the murderous couple, and even made
an effort to get Fitzpatrick off from

Murphy under the pretense of helping
him. "When Ellington took the billy
from Murphy, Murphy grabbed the bar
rel of Fitzpatrick's revolver and pulled
on it and came near shooting himself as
the officer had a hold on the other end
his finger on the trigger and in the scuf

Up to this time Murphy had not re
ceived a blow, but now enraged at his
failure to overcome the officer and the
loss of the billy, began to use all kinds
of evil languege and would not give up.
To overcoue him Fitzpatrick struck him
once or twice in the face with his fist
and proceeded to yank him along to jail.
The trouble occured in front of Blake's
saloon and when Mr. Fitzpatrick returned
Kinzer had disappeared and Brown had
made for the railroad; but mean while
Marshal W. II. Malick, who had
been at the other end of Main street
came along and followed Brown up and
caught him climbing into a box car be
yond the beer store house along the rail
road track. Mr. Malick there captured
him and after a little convincing med
icine and determined effort brough his
man back. -
Murphy and Brown are the same men
who, a little over a week ngo, got in a
scuttle with Marshal Malick by Blake's
saloon, and in his effort to down Brown,
Malick threw him into a plate gloss win
dow and received a severe gash on his
left arm. From that arrest they were
just liberated yesterday. Brown is a
young rough but Murphy is a paofession
al villain and is worthy of the peniten
tiary and would undoubtedly have killed
Mr. Fitzpatrick had he obtained the
revolver. John Fitzpatrick is a brave
man to engage the three Murphy, Brown
and Kinzer in such a combat, unaided
and with a crowd of cowardly men
At court this morning Murphy and
Brown plead guilty to resisting an offic

Brown had two cuts across his forehead
over the right eye and Murphy had both
eyes more or less inflamed. Mr. Fitz
patrick appeared in court but was pretty
sore from the kicks he had received on
the breast and head, and his neck bore
scratches from Brown's fingers. The
sentence was only ten days and costs,
$7.80. Mr, Fitzpatrick showed pluck
and good reasoningin not shooting the
men, although he would have been justi
fied in doing so.
From the past experiences it is plain
ly evident that Plattsmouth has the
pluckiest and best police force of any
town in the state and they are thorough
The' men who stood round and refused,
to help Mr. Fitzpatrick were cowards
and do not deserve the name of citizens

life to protect.
