TAKES HIS OWN LIFE.
While Visiting at the Home of His
Fthrr-ln-Lw He Cuts the Throats of
His Wife and Child, Following It With
Suicide A Well-Known Newspaper
Man cf Caldwell County The Tragedy
Planned by Field and His Wife.
Harder and Suicide.
Kingston, Mo., July 9. S. A. Field,
tmtil recently editor and proprietor of
the Post at Polo, in Caldwell county,
murdered his wife and infant daugh
ter and committed suicide at Mead-
ville. Mo., yesterday afternoon.
Field and his family were visiting
at the residence of his father-in-law
near Meadville, when he asked
his wife to go into the garden
back of the house to talk. She ac
companied him, taking along their
little girl, about 3 years of age.
"When they reached the garden Field
cut the throats of his wife and child
with a razor, killing them instantly,
and then ended his own miserable
life in the same manner The dead
bodies were found by a member of his
father-in-law's familr and 230 were
found in Field's pocket.
Field was a lawyer by profession and
was abcut 35 years old. He had re
plied at Polo about ten years, and dur
ing that time was editor and propri
etor of the Post, a newspaper inde
pendent in politics, although the ed
itor voted and acted with the Demo
cratic party. Some years ago he at
tempted to practice law, but his fail
Tire in that profession greatly dis
heartened him, and until recently he
had confined his labors to his news
paper, which a few weeks ago he sold
to Mr. Culver, the present editor. In
person Field was small and dark, with
a very large head. He was of a mel
ancholy temperament and often fan
cied slights from his best friends and
grieved over them when no offense
was dreamed of. Field was married
four years ago to a young lady school
teacher of Linn county. Mo., a very
estimable woman, who did all she
could to comfort and reclaim him from
his fits of melancholy. During these
attacks he was unaccountably jealous
of her without the slightest cause.
They had no children except the in
fant daughter whom Field sent into
eternity along with its mother and
Over two years ago Field had a few
nnpleasant words with his wife at
dinner one day and on his arrival
home at night he found her absent,
she having gone with her child to visit
a neighbor lady, and, as she said at
the time, had forgotten the little quar
rel. He returned to his printing office
and threw himself out of a second
6tory window, but escaped injury, and
got up and began to bump his head
against the brick wall of the building.
Dr. Joseph Frazier, who had seen him
till from the window, came up at this
time and caught him, when Field told
the doctor that his wife had taken her
child and left him and returned to her
father's ami that he did not care to
Field had begun very poor but had
made money through hard work as
editor and printer and some law prac
tice: he owned his paper and a pleasant
residence in Polo, with money ahead
besides. Field was a man of unex
ceptionable habits and character in
every respect, and was kind, courteous
and particularly dignified in his inter
course with everyone, and his rash act
comes with a great shock to those who
A note was found on Mrs. Field's
body, saying that everything she had
was to be left to her mother. It seems
that Field and his wife had planned
the tragedy, for she went into the
house after they went out and put on
an old dress and then returned to the

Boston, July 6. The Fourth of July !
parade of the patriotic societies of
Boston and vicinity, at East Boston,
ended in a pitched battle between
some of the paraders and the specta
tors, in which sticks, stones and re
volvers were used with fatal effect.
John Wills, a laborer of East Boston,
one of the spectators, was shot and
instantly killed; Michael Boyle, of
East Boston, had his - head split open
by a club, and now lies dying in a city
hospital. A young man named Stewart
had his nose cut off with a saber, in
the hands of one of the paraders.
Patrick Kelley sustained a severe scalp
wound, whether from a club or a bul
let is not known, and Officer A. S.
Bates was hit in the mouth by a brick,
thrown by an unknown person, and
lost several teeth, besides suffering
from severe lacerations. It is claimed
that the trouble all resulted from the
persistence of those who had managed
the parade in introducing as a feature
float representing the "little red
schoolhouse," which, from its associa
tion as the emblem of the American
Protective Association, has become ob
noxious to many persons, especially
those who do not sympathize with the
A. 1 . A. movement
The Fourth of Julv committee re
fused to permit this feature to appear
in the parade, and those desirinsr to
prevent it tried to have an order passed
by the board of aldermen, but failed.
So great was the interest excited by
this controversy and the expressed de
termination of the paraders to display
the schoolhouse, fully 30,000 visitors
gathered at East Boston. The police
ofncials, in anticipation of any hostile
demonstration, had a special squad of
3."0 men, in addition to the East Bos
ton force, on duty, but they marched
at the head of the procession. At
several points the feeling of the crowd
was jnven vent in hisses at the 1,500
paraders and the schoolhouse, but no
further demonstration was made until
the rear of the parade reached Putnam
street, when the crowd tried to over
turn the last carriage. Word was sent
to the front for police assistance and a
squad of twenty officers was sent back.
:V skirmish followed between the crowd
and the officers. When the parade
broke up, and those who had partici
pated were proceeding in companies
to the ferry a group of between
sixty and seventy was surrounded on
Boarder street by a crowd who com
menced hooting and throwing stones.
A dozen revolvers were drawn, and m
response to the fusilade of stones.
eight or ten shots were fired. The
firing of the revolvers brought a large
body of police to the spot and the mob
was soon dispersed. As the scene was
cleared the officers found John Wills
dead in the street, with a bullet hole
m his right side, and Patrick A. Kelley
lying seriously wounded about the
head. It was learned later that sev
eral other persons had been slightly
injured, all of whom had been taken
away by their friends.
The police arrested Harold Brown
and John Ross as the principals who
did the shooting.

THEY ABOUND IN THE ILLINOIS
Some of the Members Accused of Corrup
tion Two Chicago Senators and Sev
eral Country Members Charged With
Receiving Money to Alter and Kill the
New Game Kill Other Crooked Work
Soon to be Laid Bare.
Chicago, July 4. Early in the regu
lar session of the legislature, a rigid
bill was introduced for the preserva
tion of game. It is charged that a
member of the house obtained 8700
from the Illinois Sportsmen's associa
tion for substituting a section remov
ing the penalty from sportsmen, but
placing it on the dealer in game.
Then, it is charged, a Chicago sen
ator and other members approached
the game dealers and demanded from
$500 to 81,000 each to work for a change
in the law in favor of the dealers,
while one Chicago senator offered for
$3,500, to see that the whole bill was
killed. This exposure will, it is said,
be followed by others.
Evidence has been obtained estab
lishing charges of bribery in the pas
sage of the Miller and Lowenthal bills,
the Crawford railroad bill, the bill
providing for consolidation of certain
corporations, and it is asserted that
evidence can be had that money was
nscd to defeat the arbitration bill, that
some of the money was paid to mem
bers in Chicago, but the larger amount
was distributed in Springfield.
It is probable that the board of
trade may aid materially in furnish
ing evidence against one or two mem
bers of the house in connection with a
oertain bill in which the board of
trade was interested. It is said that
sufficient evidence is in hand to indict
at least fifteen members of the legisla
ture. IN BEHALF OF DEBS.

ment Proposed Labor Day Set Apart.
Washington, July 4. Several hun
dred members of the local Knights of

man Sovereign last night at a meeting
held to protest against the imprison
ment of Eugene V. Debs. Mr. Sover
eign denounced the confinement of
Debs as an unlawful act of the courts.
He asked the workingmen to bond
together for mutual protection, and
announced that he had ' issued
an order to the Knights of La
bor of the United States to set
apart Labor day, the first Monday in
September as a time to make a mam
moth protest against Debs incarcera
tion. At the conclusion of the speechmak-
ing a resolution was adopted demand
ing of congress legislation which shall
give legal protection to organized em-
Elo-es of corporations and secure them
1 the future from "the arbitrary and
nnjust application of an injunction
under a gross and wilfull misconstruc
tion of the law."

Love-Stricken Traveling Doctor Tries
Hard to Prevent a Wedding:.
Fort Scott, Kan., July 4. Dr.
Hunter, of Chicago, a traveling doctor,
with an advertising company, drove
sixteen miles through the mud to this
city yesterday afternoon to prevent the
marriage of A. J. Bunce of Topeka and
Miss Ida Guernheart of Omaha and
created a sensation which resulted in
his arrest. The young man and woman
were leading members of his company
and they came here to get married.
The doctor, who, it appears, loves the
firetty young woman, arrived at the
luntmgton hotel with his silk
hat, broadcloth clothes and white
shirt all bespattered with mud, just
as the ceremony was to be performed.
He entered the room where the offi
ciating judge was waiting for a wit
ness, drew a pistol, and attempted to
shoot Bunce. The two scuffled, but
the prospective groom was finally
compelled to flee for his life. The
screams of the fetjale patrons of the
hotel attracted 500 people who, seeing
Bunce running hatless, supposed him
to be the offender and pursued him.
He was captured three blocks away in
hiding in the grain room of a grocery
store. After proper explanations he
returned to the hotel escorted by the
city marshal and the ceremony was
performed. The doctor was later
found and arrested.
