Last rjisbt abuut 10 o'clock a fatal
sbootint; affray occurod a: the j-outb
side saloon. This .aioon i- located iin
mediatcV fouth of th Northwestern
track on the wcat side of Haatinps ave
nue, and i considered a rather touzh
reort. The fatal duel took dace in the
bar room near the frout door and be
tween two gamblers named Frank Fans
ler and Kd, or ''Kid" Hawkins.
It seems that these two men Have
been nursing a desperate prudire asaint
tach other for more than a year, and
Fanalerha3 threatened to kill Hawkin
several time?. Hawkins wa- quite in
timate with the bar tender at the .-yu'h
side faloon, and fn-quent'y left hh ef
cockine, rS-calibrc revolver in th
drawer bthinJ the bar. a.- a rafe and
handy idace to reach it in ca?e he need
ed iL Last mcht Hawkins had left his
jrun in the drawer behind the bar ai?
usual, and Fanslcr slipped in and took
it. swearing to some of the men about
the saloon that he would kill Hawkins.
Hawkins heard this and he went out
and got another good revolver and came
back. Hawkins then walked into the
saloon and went behind the bar, pulled
out the drawer, as though looking for
his revolver, then lie turned and ipoke
to Fansler, who htood in front of tin
bar and toward the door, sayinc.
"FRANK, (JIVi: J1K JIV KKVOI.VKU."
Fansler at once drew the revolver
from his hip pocket, sayin.c:
THERE. TAKK IT, YOU S OF A H ."
and fired a thot at Hawkins' head.
Hawkins pulled hi.- gun :ind bo:ii men
began firing. FaTslcr was a poor shot.
He fired four times and did not hit
Hawkins. Uut Hawkins hit his man
every time he pulled. The men fired
four times each. The fourth shot by
Hawkins hit Fansler in the lower part
of the chest and brought him down.
As Fancier fell he fired hi fourth shot,
but to no effect
IIF. WAS SOON DEAD.
Fansler was soon in the throe of
death and the noise of battle was a' an
end. The few men who were in the sa
loon at once ran to the side of the dy
ing man and Hawkins skipped out.
The police were soon at the scene of
the murder but Uicm:m who did the
phooting was gone They and sheriff
Iiarlass began to plan a search for Haw
kins when he suddenly nude his ap
pearance on the strict, walking boldly
up to the officers and said: "entle
men I suppose I am the man yon are
looking for." He was taken into cus
tody by Sheriff ISnrlass and wa care
fully guarded all night.
TIIK DEAD MAN.
The coroner took charge of the body
and a post mortem eximiuaiion was
had. Dr. Lynn opened the body and
ascertained that the fatal bullet cut
right through Farisler's liver. The
murdered man had been hit by every
mil' of the four bullet- fired by Hawk
ins. Two shots took effect in the left
d'oulder, one in tliL right idi near tla-w:ti.-t
and one went clear through the
body cuttingthe liver. Fanslcr's .hoot
ing wa very wide of the mark. Two
shot- hit the b:ir and failed to go
through, one struck the wall above
Hawkins head and the other hit the ice
chest at the back end of the b.ir.
THE WIFE TAKES THE ItODV.
Fansler was a married man, having a
wiff and one child, and makes his home
patt of th- time at Kcd Cloud. His
wife dine up on t!:e midnight train and
took the p mains to lied Cloud thi
