. wTio wos'bnyonoted during the troubl
at the du up on Sunday evening wa
< ! oad or in a dying condition. Thi
wna Ron or ally nccreditod ns ruin in

militin hmvicks about 11 p. m. , am
mitdo inquiries of the cunrds but wa
given to understand that Armstrong
liad not-been in the bnrrack * , ns reported
ported , and that nothing was knowi
of nny cno having received any aorioui
Yesterday , however , It wai
lenrnod that the wound had bocn si
flovero aa to provo fatal nnd that thi
body-was in the handa of the coroner
The facts , ns nearly ns they could bi
ascertained proved to bo about as fol
lows ;
After the disturbance preceding
dress parade , ns described above. Mr ,
Armstrong slnrlod to cross Ei htl
slreel , which hnd just boon cleared bj
the militia. The two or thrco preceding
coding collisions between the tniiitit
nnd citizens had aroused the feeling !
of both parties. On reaching about
the center of tlio street the old mar
wai slopped by n uunrd , who ordered
him back , at the name time pointing
liis bayonet at him , as waa done with
all who crossed. This probiblj
aroused cither the fear or anger of the
deceased and ho aiezed the gun cither
to wrest it from the soldier or ta
avert it from his body. Ho then
turned to luavo , and what followed ia
not positively known. Ono witness
Bays thnt n militiaman clubbed his
musket nnd felled him to the ground.
A wound on his forehead Booms
to boar out the theory
thnt ho fell on _ hia face.
The sarao witness Bays that the next
ho saw was the butt of n musket in the
air , ns if'the guard WAS bayoneting
the prostrate man. His oldtat BOH ,
Qeo. D. Armstrong , wns standing
near by and ran to his father's rescue ,
but waa driven back as stated above ,
by one of the guards leveling his
Bockodimusket at the crowd. Arm
strong waa then assisted to his feet
md led by the guards inside the yard
about the old church and
into' ' the south wing of the
brick building. Ho expired inside .of
fifteen jnlnutes after the _ occurronco.-
' ' ' '
It'waBele'omoid'b'eBT not to make the
natter public for fear of a disturbance
md nothing was known to his family
sr others for Bomo time after of the
sequel to the encounter. About 9
> 'clock Ilia youngest aon , Wm. E.
Armstrong , relurned homo and learn
ing of Iho" affair , wont wilh George to
iho barracks , which tl y reached
through the kind assistance of a block
watchman. They were not permitted
to BOO their fatnor , but were informed
' .hat ho hnd boon hurt nnd waa asleep.
In the monntimo Coroner Jacobs
md been notified , nnd nb'out 11:30 :
vent down to remove the remains to
ils undertaking ; rooms. When the
; wo sons RMV the wagon nrrivo Iho i-x-
ont of their loss nt once flashed upon
hum. The body wna removed to the
loronor'a rooms nnd but few know of
ilio death of the victim until yoj-
onlay morning.
At 10 o'clock the jury was empan-
: elh > d and aworn in. It consisted of

luaincss inons
W. J. Kennedy , 0. B. Rustin ,
Jhsrlei H. Goodrich , F. J. McSlwne ,

After viewing the body it wns con-
iderod advisable to hold a post mor-
om , and accordingly an adjournment
raa taken until 3 p. m. The crowd
rhioh hnd assembled were permitted
0 pass through and view the re

The bodybore but two

as distinct as it approached the loft

A meeting of the employes of thi

yesterday aftorneon at 2 o'clock n

were present. A resolution was drawr

of the company would bo willing tr
raise the pay of mon receiving lesi
than $1,70 per day to that sum , nnd
further , if they would raise the pay ol

the conditions will bo favorably ro <
n well attended mooting of the Lv
borers'Proteclivo union was heldnl
Ihti same hall. President Walsh presided
sided , and in opening the meeting
made , in some respects , the best
speech of the many ublo impromptu
fiT'irtu ho has produced since the
movement began. Among olhor
tilings , ho said that ho considered
Mnyor Boyd indirectly responsible foi
the crime committed last cvcnintr ,
when Armstrong was killed. Hotel-
psrnphud for military assistance when
in reality ho hnd made no effort to
miiintain order , do did not per
sonally appear upon the scene
of notion when ho should
have been there , nnd when his
presence would hnvo prevented any
violence. What have the militia been
brought to Omaha for ? To take the
lifo of a defenseless old nun , ono of
the oldest inhabitants of the city ?
Men nro not safe in the streets , nnd
no mun can walk Eighth streetn pub
lic hightvay , safely , if the militin are
allowed to use their weapons without
restraint. If no ono else would take
steps to have the man who oayonoted
Armstrong nnd killed him arrested
and punished , the speaker assured the
meeting that ho would do it himself ,
and , if the man's company would not
give him up , ho would cell to his as-
ustnnco thu residents of the city to
buck him up. If Mayor.Boyd hnd
called upon the union ho would have
ibtained assistance in m.iintaim'ne ;
aw and order. Why waa ho not at
the dump on Wednesday lost , nnd
showing by his presence that ho was
desirous of ineetintr public excitement

heir placta should bo declared vacant.
! propose to stand firm , and I want
ill uf the workingmen of Omaha
.o do the same. Do not fear or waver.
iVhnt ia it if the executive committee
ire aent-to jail ? There nro thousands
of others who are ready to step in andre
ro able 'to fill the positions. In ro-
iurd to Armttrong'a death , to which
ho aoeakor again referred , ho said
hat the verdict of the coroner's jury
must not ba waited for.
At thia juncture the reporter of the
lorald entered the room , nnd was in
cited to "theplatform. One of the
reaaons why the speaker was in the
mil was that ho desired to demand
.ho arrest of the militia man who
) aynnuted Mr. Armstrong , and ho
vnntod also every workingman in and
iiitaidq of the city to turn out on
iVo'lneaday ' and attend the funeral of
he deceased. The speaker hnd been
n fnvorof arbitration , but after thia
tilling ho w a not.
M.ijor W. A. Fonda reaignod hia
lOBition PS u merahur of the executive
ommitteo. In so doing he Raid that
10 had not tha time to both look after
ho union without his own business
uttering irreparably. Another and
lore important reason was that the
ommitteo should bo composed as
H possible of workingmon.

oto of thanks extended Major Fonda
