Hcaoros, Kak, Sept. 18. The case
cf the state against James Brennan,
charged with the murder of the noted
Sam Wood last June, was commenced'
Thursday in the district court.
The feud whic'u led to the murder,
the crime itself and events following it
ware of the most exciting and sensation
h! character and such it was supposed
would the trial be. Judge Botkin, how
ever, before whom the trial is being bad
determined that it should not be. To
enforce this determination he has issued
peremptory ordere to the court's
bailiffs to maintain order in and about
the court. He warned them that they
would be held accountaDle for any dis
turbance that might arise, and toid
them that it was their duty to see that
no man entered the court room with
weapons on his person, Not only were
they to attend to that, but tbey were
specially charged to see that no person
carrying firearms of any description
was allowed to approach the building,
especially the windows. Should any
one attempt to do this, after they were
warned, the bailiffs were strictly en
joined to place such parties under arrest
for contempt of court.
The time of the court was occupied in
examining jurors. A jury had not been
selected when the court adjourned fo:
The killing of Sam Wood was one of
the most notable crimes in the latter
history of Kansas. Its remote cause
was the enmity which arose between
the citizens of Hugoton and Woodsdale
over the location of the county seat
which afterwards resulted in a battle
between the people of the two towns,
in which four men were killed and sev
eral wounded. Following that and as a
result of it occurred the noted murder
of Sheriff Cross and several of the depu
ties. During all this time Sam Wood
'and Judge Botkins were on opposite
Bides of the question and were bitter
enemies. Finally Judge Botkins gained
an upper hand by defeating Wood for
'district judge on the republican ticket.
Then Woods joined the alliance and
was ejected by thai party to the lower
o'jae of the Kansas legislature, where
his knowledge of parliamantary usages
induced the alliance caucus to appoint
jhim a steering committee of OLe. While
the legislature was in session be caused
impeachment proceedings to be brought
'gainst Judge Botkins. alleging all sorts
of judicial misbehavior. Judge Botkim
iwas acquiuea, out ine trial lniDiiterea
the old feud between the two and their
(friends. Just after the close of the
legislative session Sam Wood went to
'Hugoton to attend Judge Botkin's court.
He had entered the court, looked over
the docket and was leaving the building
when James Brennan an acknowledged
friend of Botkin shot and killed Wood.
A peculiar circumstance of the trial
is that Judge Botkin presides.
, The friends of Sam Woods have sworn
fhat justice must be doue in this case.
jThey say Brennan must suffer the death
jpepalty if not by judicial sentence then
ty the sentence of Judge Lynch. All
sorts of threats have been made against
pudge Botkins and it was on that ac
count that the judge issued his stria
'gent orders regarding the disarming ol
all attendants of the trail.

Great Loss of Lives. Thousand
Perish In the Floods.

Madrid, Sept, 17. Ths floods which
have caused so much damage and which
are already known to have resulted in
the loss of thousand cf lives, had been
general in the south of Spain. The
damage done is simply terrible in ex
tent. In the province of Toledo the
rush of water from the Consuerga river
was a sudden and unexpected that hun
dreds of people were drowned in their
beds. The aspect of the town is posi
tively frightful- Four hundred bodies
have already been recovered and at
least 100 corpses can be seen floating in
the swollen rivers. A national relief
fund has been opened. Wine and grain
crops have been destroyed through the
flooded section of the country.
The overflowing of the Consuegra
threatens to be the cause of further
ilamsige. Two-thirds of the houses
practically destroyed are still standing,
but their foundations are sapped and
threaten to fill at any moment. The
families saved from drowning are in the
greatest distress from want of food. A
moderate estimate places the total loss
of life at 2,000. A large numoer of
corpses still rest where they were found.
Unless soon interred an epidemic of
fever is feared. Municipal and goern
ment authorities are exerting them
selves to the utmost is order to relieve
the extreme distress existing. So far
as possible the drowned are being
buried in trenches dug for their recep
tion. Many bodies found are entirely
nude, showing that they must have
been washed from their beds or as
drowning people jumped from their
windows only to meet death in '.he
swollen waters surging around them.
The utmost praise is due to the troops,
physicians, clergy and sisters of charity
who, in this emergency, have shown
themselves capable of almost superhu
man exertions on bshalf of the sufferers.
Months of terrible privations and ex
treme suffering are before the utterly
impoverished survivors. Crops are
gone, cattle swept away, houses and
household furniture ruined, and all that
would enable them to earn their bread
has vanished beneath the torrents of
water which have rolled over the towns
and villages, fields and farms. The
gripiogs of hunger have, in several in
stances, driven men to desperation and
they have been goaded to pillage their
luckier or more wealthy compatriots.
Bands of desperate men, determined to
obtain bread at any cost for their desti
tute families have been driven to mak
ing raids upon and pillaging buildings
where they expect to frnd food. In
gome cases the rioters were successful
in obtaining a limited supply of flour
wheat and corn. In most cases they
found the wheat bad been removed to
a place of safety or distributed or sold
to the starving peasantry. The troops
have been instructed to take the most
severe measures to protect property.
Two thousand kilos of army bread
have already arrived in the flooded dis
tricts and the commissariat corps is
working night and day to supply pro
visions to the starving people.
At Almeria the number of dead is
still unknown, but it is admitted that
over 000 houses have Nien destroyed
and a large number of people perished.
It is impossible at present to get full
details of the disaster But, in addition
to places already referred to, at Andaras
the stream has overflowed add is ruin,
ing the grape crop, and the village of
Puarto, Lapiche and Villsfranca have
been severely ravaged by the floods.
The queen has subscribed $20,000 to
the relief fund and the Bank of Spain
has added $6,001 At Almeria the flood
has stopped operations at the electric
light and gas works and the city is in
total darkness. The river Andaray has
overflowed its banks, converting the
valley into a vast lake. It is estimated
thst over 5,000 head of horses and cat
tle were drowned. The police have sue.
ceeded in suppressing pillage. Food is
rapidly ' arriving for the sufferers.
Fresh corpses are being discovered all
ths time. The bodies of sixty persons
have been found in a public hall, where
they had been overtaken by the flood
in the midst of a wedding feast.

Memphis, Tenn, Sept. 19. Unl
the supreme court shall interfere in tis
behalf Colonel H. Clay King will be
hanged in this city on November 6 neit
for the murder of David IL Poston on
10 of last March.
The chapter in the life of Colonel
King, so far as the criminal court of
Shelby ountr is concerned, was closed
Friday when Judge J. Dubois of the
criminal court, after a lengthy opinion,
said: ""Let the motion be overruled."
The crime for mhice H. Clay Kit
stands convicted is too fresh in te
minds of the people to need rehersiLg
in deta'iL Between 10 and 11 o'clock
en the 10th of last March Colonel King
stepped from a doorway on Main street,
opposite Court House square, and shot
down Lawyer D. Poaton, who was hurry
ing t J the court house on important
business. He died a few hours later.
Kirg at once gave himself up and was
committed to jail without bail and his
trial, a few months thereafter, lasted
thirty-two days, the longeut and most
celebrated criminal trial in the hifctory
of the country. The jury after nearly
two days' deliberation brought in a ver
dict guilty of murder.
A new trial whs upplied for, and Fri
day morning JuJge Dubois, delivered
hie opinion, overruling the motion.
Every exception in the prisoner's be
half was overruled. King sat perfectly
stolid with it broad fan pressed tight
against bis bps. Judgd Green, King's
attorney, exevpt d to the judgement of
the court in overruling the motion.
There was another pause of a minute,
when Judge Dubois, looked up from
the mani'script he had been rearrang
ing, said: "Let the prisoner come for
ward." Instan ly King rose from his chair
and with a nervouB but fixed and im
movable countenance stepped a few
paws toward the bench and looked
bteadily in the judge's fuce. In a dis
tinctive voice the judge said: "It is the
judgement of this court that you, II.
Clay King, shall be committed to the
body of the county jail ant there safely
kept by the sheriff until the Gih day of
Nov., 1891, when, between the hours
of 10 a. m. and 1 p. m. the sheriff shull
within the jail, take you to a gallows,
therein constructed, and hang you by
tho neck until you are dead."
The prisoner stood as a statue through
tho dread ordeal of words, and wher. the
court had finished he turned on his
bee's and walked firmly back to his
Major Watherford then arose and
said than au appeal would betaken to
the supreme court.
Colonel King between two deputies
was taken back to jiiil.

Infant 1'ruiii Trouble.
Kansas City, M-, Sept 1C The
blowing up of his houte in Armourdale,
Ka?., and the strange death of bis wife
hy poison have seemii.gly crazed
Joseph M. Juvenal. Thiee he insanely
attempted t do murder.
It as the day set for the pieliminary
hearing of Miss Miliie Plcff man, charged
with blowing up Juvenal's house with
dynamite. Miss I'lotfman was the
young woman whom Juvenal jilted for
the woman who subsequently became
his wife, and who died from the elTects
of arsenical poisoning last Saturday.
The arraingements for the trial were
unique. The crowd of people who
wanted to hear the trial was to great to
be accommodated in the small oflice o
JuBtice Herring. There is a large lodge
room over the justice's office which
could be procured for the hearing at a
rental of 7.50, and, so as not co dis
appoint the hundreds of people atxioua
to hear the trial, the judge announced
that if the necessary sum ;ould be raised
among the crowd to pay the rent, tie
would adjourn court to the lodge room.
Two const allies iassed around their
hats and soon the desired amount was
raised. The justice then announced
that court would be held in the room
Tlie case had attracted wide attention
in Armourdale, and among the friends
of the parties interested the feeling had
run high. As a pecautiooary measure,
therefore, the justice ordered that every
male spectator should be bearched for
weapons before being admitted to th
court room. Two coustables were
stationed at the entrance and they made
the Sbaroh. A half bushel of revolver
and other weapons of various kinds
were gathered from the crowd. Juvenal
gave up two revolvers, and John Hale,
attorney for Miss 1'fofTman, gave up
one. The search, however, was not a
very exhaustive one, and the constables
failed to find a dagger which Juvenal
had secreted in an inner pocket und a
derringer which Hale had placed be
yond the Bearchers' reach.
The trial was about to begin when
Juvenal suddenly drew his dagger ami
made for Hale, Before he could reach
him, however, he was intercepted by
the bystanders, who disarmed him
Hale was expecting the attack and
drew the derringer. He, too, was dis
armed After a hasty consultation
with Ihe attorneys Justice Herring ad.
Juvenal was arrested nnd taken to
the police station, where lieporter Hut
ton of the Times followed to interview
him. Whan Mutton was admitted to
the con-cdor Juvenal seized a heavy
stove iron and would have beaten the
reporter to death but for the interfer
ence of the guards.
It is believed Juvenal has become in
sane as a result of his troubles.
