Out in the Still! district, near thin
city on the Platte bottom, the bad
blood and bitter feeling between
the two factions culminated jn a
snniiinary eiif;aement. The

outspread map, declared tin- inten
tion was to re-locate the school
upon the s.ot indicated.
At this juncture Charley Vande
venter ins. mated that Mct'roskey
was misleading" them in regard to
tlu- exact spot of the new site. Mc
lioskey indignantly denied Hie
charge, whereupon Vandeventer by
a well directed blow struck him
down. McCroskey was up in a
moment and sei.in the larjjrc oil
lamp upon the deck raised it above
his head with the intention ol
