On .Saturday Charles 3)eYonug drove
to K ilbK-k's rooms and sfnt a boy to
toil hir.i a 1:: ly wanted to eo him. As
Kallock approached the carriage
Young shot hi:u in tho breast near
the heart, Kallock turned and ha i-Lot
him again in tho hip.
A crowd overturned DeYour.g's car
riage and bruised him and a police
man considerably, but Jinially DtY. was
taken to the City Jail where he was
300:1 joiue I by his brother. Tho an
gry crowd threatened to mob the jail
and bang both brothels and if Kallock
had died probably they would. Al
though Kallock was .supposed to be
mortally wounded he is :;;ive yet. Ira
i::ensp throngs of workingmen crowd
ed the streets around his hotel and
gathered r.t the "Laud Lots" wk-ore in
flauiatory speeches were mad?. It
looked at one time as if the mob
would control the City, Kearney was
sent for and for a wonder counselled
moderation and peace until it could bo
known whether Kallock would die or
not, when if ho died nothing should
save the De Youngs.
All is quiet now, the police and
state troops are kept in readiness and
Kallock is reported better.
The California Press blame the
Chronicle and state what is tha fact
that it was a brutal murder on De
Young's part. lie commenced tha
fight, opened the ball of abuse and
when Kallock made it too hot for him,
shot him. For the time it will help
the workingmeu party, or, may let the
straight Republicans in as they have
had cothing to do with the mu?s eith
er way. Tha election for city officers
takes place next Tuesday.

we are glad to hear.

The Republican Central Committee
this County met at Light Mile Grove
cm Saturday, and fixed the date of the
County Convention, on Saturday, Sept.
"Olh, at Weeping Water. The meet
ing was a satisfactory one in every
way and passed off with great pleas
antness, and good feeling all round.
We mention this because some people
very foolishly prophesyed that we
would have a row.
Let's hunt up a man soiaewhere for
next Unite.! States Senator fioni Xo
braska. Fluttsmouth Herald.
If a better mm can be found than
Hon. A. S. Paddock, will the Herald
please trot him out? He suits Repub
lican Yalley Republicans. We would
like to examine the pints of your "dark
horse," i ' y v u. have one. - Hat bin Stand
ard. We didn't say anything about Pad
dofk.f did we or dark horse either.
Senator 1. may bo the only Senator wo
haye at present, we've heard that too,
but he isn't the only man in the state
that might want to go to Washington
in 18v i. You'll give us a little choice,
won't you V
a. man to attack another through tho
the columns of a newspaper over an
assumed name, and you profess not to
receive communications of that kind
and I know you don't unless the arti
cle suits yeu. Uut you not only allow
Mr. Pinafore, as he pleases to call him
self m his communication to the Heu
ali of the 21st; but you assisted him
in his attack on me."
If you were not an old man, too old
for me to quarrel with Mr. Dovey and I
would put myselt on the same level
you have, I should simply say you lie
aud drop it there, far every word of
the above is an untruth and I could
prove it by men, gentlemen and officers
of this town, in so unmistakable a
manner that you would not dare to
dispute it or distort what they say. I
did not write one letter of PinafoiVs
article. I did not assist him at all.
He came here very indignant about
the matter which until then 1 had
heard nothing of. His original article
was very severe on you and I insisted
on eliminating some of it before I
would publish it and suggested that
the only member of the Committee
mentioned was Mr. Dovey and I
thought that was hardly fair. Like
yourself when you used to write for
the Herald he was headstrong and
wanted his article to go in just as he
wrote it, saying you was chairman of
that committee. I also suggested
that you were an old man and 1 knew
had been sick lately and that might
account for your not serving. The
auswer was: "He should not have put
iu a bill then." For trying to do vou
this kindness, you blackguard and
abuse ma.
Xow Mr. Dovey it in my business
and every tax payers biuinvss to see
that j?jO is not taken out of the treas
ury; and it is my business aud other
poople'3 business to show up a man
who is constantly grumbling about
high taxes, w hen he endeavours to add
to our burdens under the guise of re
lieving them ; aud I don't care wheth
er you met one day or ten or what you
did individually, I say it was no part
of a citizen's duty that had any public
spirit to charge for that work.
Y'ou can settle with "Pinafore"
about how much yon served and light
it out, but I propose to tell you that
after the article was handed me, to
satisfy myself I made inquiry of Cottn
cilmen, Mayor and others and verified
every statement made by Pinafore, and
Sir, the comments and remarks on
your case was far from complimentary
to you, I assure you, as you will tir.d if
you present that bill to the Council.
I then wrote my own views, si-jned
"Ld." (I uever skulk behind anybody
Mr. Dovey) commencing "We .-.grce
with most of the above, Sec," and e:ie
of the things we did not agree on vas
mentioning your name and nut gtvii
the rest ul tne Committee. I begin to
think you deserve all though, because
I believed that the chargo lor this
work was put in unthinkingly by the
other me. libers and would be with
drawn when their attention was call
ed to it, Uil you it seems mean to light
it out and grab your .510. Go it old
boy, get it if you can.
The last part of your kilter Mr.
Dovey is so silly and boyish that, as I
have S3en you write some terse Eng
lish, I judge you must be now getting
into your second childhood aud I look
over your petulance.
Very Respectfully,

The Mississippi murderers are again
ahead. As usual in such cases, tho
bulldozing outrage in Yazoo County
ends in a tragedy. A few weeks ago
H. M. Dixon, independent candidate
for Sheriff, was compelled to withdraw.
A demand was made that he leave the
county, but this he declined to do. As
many persecuted Republicans in the
South have done, he asserted his rights
as an American citizen, and detied the
mob. The filial result in his case is
the same as has been frequently re
corded in wther cases. He has been
shot and killed by James II. Parks

ocratic ticket. The object of the mob
which surrounded Dixon ou the 23th

independent candidate. They were
only partially successful, as Dixon, on
surrendering, exacted conditions. Mr.
