The King murder of last Raturdy
afforded the Omaha newspapers a whole
page sensational article yesterday. As
was atated in the Saturday issue of the
IIkkm.H, King was murdered ly a w oman
who claims to !c his wife, at the Paxton
hotil. Harry King the murdered man, is
the son of II. W. King, sr., of the great
clothing firm of II. W. King fc Co., of
Chicago, He is about thirty-two years
of age. He grew to manhood in Chicago,
enjoying all the pleasures of that great
city under the liberal gratuities of his
father who is ranked among the wealthy
men of that place. The linn is one of
the most substantial clothing housis in
the world. It has eight branches, one in
each of the cities of Philedclphia, Cin
cinnati, Boston. Kansas City, St. Paul,
Milwaukee, St. Louis and Omaha. Mr.
Harry King was engaged in doing the
outside business tor the firm. He hid
ome to Om:iha to open up the business
there and after he had come west had
married a Miss Duffy, a daughter ot
Judge Duffy, of St. Louis. He had
been married three times. His first wife
was divorced, and his second wife, the
murderess, claimed to be deserved.
When she learned of his last marriage
-he followed l.im to Omaha to prosecute
iiim as she said, for bigamy. Alter

at tiie Union Square theatre last evening
in " Our Irish Visitors." There is neith
er ingenuity in dramatic construction nor

written to amuse, and it is capitally suit
ed to elicit the hearty laughter of popu
lar audiences. It is, of course quite be
yond description analysis. Its incidents
are earned on by Colonel Gilhooly and
Jerry McGinnis,' two typical Irishmen,
by Mrs. McGinnis, a no less typical Irish
woman, by Miss Arabella McGinnis, who

these people crack jokes, sing songs, aud
dance the veiy rythmical steps that set
un audience to accompanying the dancers
with a pedal accompaniment, with ft
spirit which never flags. There was con
siderable laughter over the unceasing
repartee between Gilhooly and Mc
Ginnis, yesterday, liberal approval of the
neat terpsichorean efforts of Seymour
Blanche Seymour, and much sympathetic
adiuiratioi) for Nellie Page's " serio "

knew no bounds when Messrs. Murray
