Tlic Itarr Oak Tragedy.
On Friday ljut Orion's Anglo-American
four combined swindles arrived
here as advertised. The tents were
pitched, and after the usual atrect par
ade they wore rapidly filled with peo
ple. All went well except for ill feeling
of dome toward the gang of
Hlinrpcre, who plied their huei
oroiidly. both within the tent
At, or rather after, tho evening per
formance, however, a disturbance look
place which will long be remembered
by otir cilizenfi. The paiticulaw in
the case arc as follows:
During the concert in the evening
one Glint Elliot, of Mankato, who was
drunk, made a good deal of noiso by
sneering at the lit i much of the enter
tainment, and in comerjuence rot into
an altercation with Claude Powers,
adopted son of J.Iiles Orion, the propri
etor. Officer L. Lacey came up in
time to prevent hlows, and ordered
Elliot to be quiet, which order he
obeyed, but not till4he ihowma:i had
told him that he was "spotted" and
would be "attended to after the per
formance." True to luc thrcttd made,
as soon as the performance whj ended,
Oi ton's men began hurrying the audi
ence from the tent, telling them that
there would be a fuss. Just as Elliot,
fatill in tho charge of Lacey, emerged
from the tent, he was struck on the
head with a tent Make in the hands of
one of the hhow men, and as Lacey was
stooping to help him up, he, too, w:
hit twice in the back with a sand bag.
Thinking it was going to be pretty hot
for him "Mr. Lacey made tracks for
town lo procure help. Upon his le
turn lie was greeted with oaths and
threats from the showmen, but it is
probable no open fight would have
taken plaef, had not two or three un
autorized persoM, among them George
Evans, our half crazy x-restaurant
keeper, commenced to rail back at the
circus men, threatening lo cut the
ropes. This appeared to enrage Or
ion's roughs beyond all bounds, and
with the chcus cry of ".Hey Jtcube !"
they grabbed tent stakes and proceed
ed to deal about them riht and left.
.Several bystanders, in all about twenty,
were knocked down, and Evans was
pretty badly pounded, a punishment
he well deserved. As the hhowmen
& iveic in the majority they succeeded in
H making the crowd outside the tents
betake themselves to a distance of safe
ty. Ihey however followed the circus
men to the depot, where the were
loading their wagons and tents on the
cms, and another war of words and
clubs followed, in which Low ITawley.
who should have boon in the jug for
drunkenness, was pietty roughly
handled. Mayor Mann was pent for
to use his influence to quiet tho crowd,
and had succeeded in doing bo, but
just as the train started Evans, who
had been home an yot his shot gun. ar
rived on tho spot and fired a shot at
the train. At this the showmen be
gan shooting at tho crowd about the
depot, most of whom were spectators
attracted by the disturbance. At tho
first volley Zig Longnccker, a hard
working blacksmith, and a man whol
ly innocent of taking any part in the
disturbance, was shot through the
brain and fell uuconcious upon the
platform. At the second volley Mayor
Mann was shot in tho back, and a
young man named O'Neal, from the
country, was shot in the heel. The
firing by the showmen was kept up as
long as they thought they could hit
any one at the depot. The circus train
Rtopped for the regular train to side
track, but when they started on they
resumed firing and kept it up till they
were fully half a mile from the depot.
There arc parties here "'who say they
heard Orton order his men to get their
. "gims" and fire low, just as he stepped
aboard tho train. Upon examination
it was found that Longnecker was shot
through the brain, the ball catering
- the right temple and coming out just
above the cheek bone on the left tide
He died in less than an hour, being
wholly unconcious after his fall.
Young O'Neal received only a flesh
.wound in the heel, and is doing as well
as could bo expected. A. W. Mann
was shot in the back, the ball entering
just below the shoulder, close to the
back bone, and lodging within the
body. He is now in a critical condi-
v tion, only his extra strong constitution
being in his favor. His physicians say
- that should he recover, his lower
extrcmeties will always be paralysed,
inaking him a helpless cripple.
Sheriff Johnson started on Saturday
morning's train for Washington, Kan.,
whith er'thp show had gone, to arrest
the outfit. Sixteen were arrested and
I ' brought to Mankato. The rest were
allowed to ge their way to Sedalia,Mo.
where the show was billed to appear.
The parties arrested arc no undergoing
a preliminary examination. It is prob
able that two or more among them
took part in .the shooting. Burr OaJz
