THE COLORADO TBAOKDY.
Denver, July 5. The city is terribly
excited over the startling news receiv
ed lagt night that two of the county
commissioners had been shot and kill
ed, and t lie other commissioner and ti e
county clck mortally wounded by a
muk-d mob. The truob'e that led to
the shooting was ihe result of an old
feud, dating hack lo 1879, when the
county was created by an act of the
legislature and the county scat located
at Hot. Sulphur Springs A' n elec
tion in ISfc';. tl-e people hy a vote

Ti:e m-.J ter ws tfckoii to 'he ciitnct
court, and theii to the supreme court.
In the meanwhile the hatred existing
between the rwo factious grew in in-tensit-,
culminating in yesterday's
bloody work. Grand county has three
commissioners, Barney Day. K. GMill
and E. P. Webbei, a majority of whom.
Dav and Webb r, were in favor of de
claring the v te illegal thnt created
Grand Lake the count) sea', and the
ienioing the reccrda baek to the
..Springs. Last Monday the commis
sioners had a r gular ruetii g at Grand

treasurer vacant because of bis refusal

When aiout midway through lie
thicket three -masked men sudchniy
sprang out of ibe busies and com
menced firing, shooting them all down
almost instantly. Before their work
had been done the commissioners re
turned the fire, instantly killing one of
the assassins. The other two masked
men, thinking they had killed all three
of the party, disappeared in th f -ashes.
When the startled citizens arrived at
th'- place of the combat, a moment la
ter, they found Day Dead and Webber
and Dean mortally wouuded. They
tore the mask from the other mni, and
found he was Mills, the oth r county
commissioner. The two other assail
ants are not known. Suspicion r sts
upon two noted desperadoes. Bill Red

was brought to Hot Sulphur Springs it
produced the most intense excitement,
and shorily before dark last night a
party of twenty horsemen, well armcd
left for Grand Lake, and a terrible
fight is expected. L'p to this hour, ten
o'clock, no later news has been xeceived
from the scene of the tragedy. A
courier riding fifty milci over the
mountains ia the only means of com
munication. It is probable that no fur

The postmaster-general today heard
argmuvnts relative to the question of
the legal status of lottery companies,
which involved the entire lottery ques
tion in id' its phases W. W. Belknap
and C. W. Moiilton appeared for the
Lon i i) a company, and Mr. Sn'ncr will
aj p ar tig'oiisl thai cmpany. It U un
derstood that be lepreseuts Robertson,
of Louisiana, w ho made a fiaht in the
house against Ihe lotteiy company at
the last session. It is claimed, that the
Louisiaua company is enjoying privi
leges not acorded to others, while the
company maintains that as it exists
by and under the'laws of Louisiana it
is a legal institution, and should be
lecoguized by the postotlice depart
ment. The company is also represent
ed by Col. Moulton, who spoke three
hours, and at the conclusion of his
argument the postmaster general said
that the mere fact that the lottery is
recognized by the state as a legal in
stitution, did not lessen the responsi-
ilitv of the government in the preui
iscs Hi seemed to think both com
panies slu-uid be placed on the sain
footing, but did not indjeat- whf' 1 is
views wen? concerning the teg-dit f

Another question has arisen in the

"assisted immigrants." j- t the port of
New York several clays ago. the steam
ship, City of Richmond arrived wih
seven pauper immigrants. They land
ed at Custle Garden. The steamship
goon after departed on her regular trip.
The question to i e decided is as to the
disposition to he in ide of the pauper
immigrant, whether to send them baek
to their own country by another vessel,
or to allow them to remain in this

Speaking of Mr. Blaine's remark
able memory, ex-Senator Thurmaa
is reported to have told the following
story : "In 1876," be said, "Blaine
came to my town and made a speech.
I went to hear him. While I was
talking to him at the place where he
had spoken I saw in the crowd an
old farmer of wealt h ami consequence,
a client of mine, who is a stanch Re
publican. He wus regarding with
much interest the gn at Republican
leader ot whom he bad heard so
much, but never before had seen. I
beckoned for him to come up, and
said : "Air Blaine, I waat to pre

up to spvaK to him.
Suctdeuiy iookin up he saw Squire
Brown at a distance. The old man
was wondering if Blaine would re
member him. Leaving the crowd
about him, Biaine walked straight to
Brown, and, cailing him by name,
thoolt hauds with htm cordially, and
at-.cr talking a lew minutes said:
"Snui re Brown, did ou ever tram

Judge I'hurman, 4'it had been fom
ears since that circumstance oc
curred. Blaine had had an immense
number oi' things to think ot'in that
time, and yet he had recalled the
man and remembered without diffi
culty precisely what had happened
so long ago. To my mind it was oao
of the most wonderful feats of mem
ory I have ever known."
