A Colored Man In a Fit of
Stools His Wife Three Times ,
Ho Then Attempts His Own Lift
Aided By His Own Eovolver ,
llotli Now in a Critical Condition
The people living in the vicinity of 51 ]
Pleasant street , nt about 7 o'clock l&sl
evening , were atartlod by tbo report ol
three pi M shots fired In quick succession
sion , and in a moment or two afterward )
followed by two others a short distance
apart. Within a very short tlmo after ,
ward Air. Iluntoon , who lives almost op
poaito the above number wan beckoned
to come across the street by a young colored
orod woman who was loaning against the
front yard fence of Mr. Tom Orr'a real
donee. On going over
streaming down the woman's neck who
said , "My husband shot mo because 1
would not go to " and was stopped
in her attempt to toll the cause of hoi
wounds by the blood in her throat.
Upon being aakod wnoro ho was replied
that ho waa in the kitchen. The wound
ed woman was taken back to the house
by Mr. Iluntoon and Mr. McClure , who
had boon attracted to the flcono. Upon
going to the kitchen the prostrate
form of a man was found lying in one
corner , partially doubled up in a pool of
blood , with a Cvo chambered ,
The wounded man when found was in
an inaonsiblo condition and when last
he rd from had not recovered conscious-
ness. A physician was telephoned for
and in a few moments Drs. Hart and
Hanchott arrived. Upon examination
the woman was found to have received
three shots. Ono pistol ball had entered
the mastoid process just behind the loft
oar , the second had penetrated the loft
lido of the nock below the angle of the
| aw and was presumed by the surgeons
to have lodged against the inferior
maxillary on the right aide , while
the third ball had nearly torn off the indoz
Gngor oftho loft hand. The manwas
found to havo.
the ball entering the mastoid process of
the right temporal bono , and penetrating
the skull about a half an inch. The sur
geons sot about probing and succeeded in
extricating the ball from his wound and
also from the ono in the woman's head
Ho waa then placed in a carriage and it
is said was taken to St. Joseph's hospital.
From the little that could bo learned
concerning the affair , it appears that the
woman whoso name is Mary Fields , went
to work for Mr. Orr as a domestic a week
igo last Wednesday and has continued
in his employ over since. Shortly after
> ho began in her now place the wounded
nan whoso narao is Elijah Fields came
ind did not return again until yesterday
'oronoon. At thtatimo ho came and gave
icr some money and asked her to go and
live with him. She refused , and in thu
if tornoon ho came again and asked her to
return the money ho had given Jior. After
tie had cone the second tlmo Mrs. Field ,
who had novorbcforo said arty thing about
her marriage relations , ' told the people
with whom aho lived that the man who
liad coaio to see her
[ n the evening while Mr. Orr and his
'amily were out riding , ho appeared for
; ho third time yesterday , and the result
> f the mooting was what has boon stated
On the Itoor of the kitchen was found
i note written in his own hand stating ho
ia.s going to die and that ho and his
vifo would bo buried in > ono grave. It
ilao gave the address , 005 Baltimore
itroot , KansasCityas the place where his
Brother is at work.
It appears that Field was a worthloas
iporting follow , and was considerably
iddictod to drink , on account of which
iho determined
Several colored men who know him in
Kansas Oily say ho was a porter in a
saloon there and spent his money in
gambling and drink. But little could bo
learned of his wife , who is about 22 years
old , She had boon but a short time at
Mr. Orr's , but was lonkod upon by the
Family as a most honest and industrious
woman. She trill remain with them ,
where aho will receive the boat of care
ind treatment at their hands , The phy-
licians say it is extremely probable that
Field will die of his wound , but they
ihlnk his wife will recover.

J. J. Noligh , of this city , returned las
evening from Denver bringing back wit !
him , on a requisition , Joseph Wyngart
the tailor , who it will bo remembered L
charged with stealing $700 , from hi
wife in this city about two weeks ago. Th
following is what a Denver paper of Julj
30 , says about the case which present
some interesting features :
John A. Dowooso , a lawyer , yosterdaj

necessary warrant and requisition , nm

mcnt of the court bo what it may. The
prisoner may bo able to regain his liberty
from Dave Cook's men , but it is hardli
probable that ho will escape from Dotoo
tivo Noligh , who has taken all the necessary
sary precautions to arm himself with al
the authority that ho needs to claim the
prisoner , and who scorns from his argu
ment to bo well posted on
disposing of writs of this kind. lie
claims that the atato court has no juris
diction in the matter and that ho wil
respectfully decline to produce the body
of the prisoner. A very prominent
lawyer to-day observed that ho woult
like to see the case tostnd and expressed
the opinion that Dotoctlvo Noligh a stand
was a bravo ono and well taken. Gen.
Cook , superintendent of the Rocky
Mountain Dotcctivo agency , and Detec
tive Noligh spent yesterday in viewing
the city and oxohanping "pointers. "
Wyngart's examination on the charge
of grand larceny will bo hold to-day ,
when it is expected there will bo some
interesting developments.
riio nooks ntul Ladders Conclude
to Withdraw from Active
Service ,
The board of trustees of the Pioneer
[ look and Ladder company hold a moot
ing last evening , presided over by "W. J.
Kennedy , its chairman , in 'Fireman's
dall. The mooting was largely attended
ind a nearly full board was present.
\ftcr the object of the mooting waa
itatod , that it had convened to discuia
the question of the company'ojturning its
property ever to the city and going out
} f active service , several of these
present oxprcaaed their views
ipon the matter. It waa finally
iooidcd to hand in a communication
to the council at its next
mooting offering to dispose of its property
to the city for $2,000. This property
includes the team , cart , harness , pom- _
pier apparatus , etc. It was determined
to retire from active service but not dis
band , the old members holding thom-
jolvos always in readiness to do duty
nrhpn requested to by the chief. This
ictjoii of the Hooks and Ladders , it is
thought , will ccmpol the city to place
lovoral moro upon the list of paid kro
nen. The Pompier corps however will
lot disband but will continue to' run to
Ires as of old.

At five o'clock yesterday morning Ih
warnln 'notoiof the fito boll rangoullouc
and clear upon the morning air and people
plo living in the vicinity of the cngin
house either arose or turned in bed am
listened. The alarm sounded box 42
Thirteenth and Douglas , and only strucl
onco. In a few minutes an alarm wo.
turned in from box 43 , Tenth atroot engine
gino house , and at this these who hac
hoard the first alarm and had turnoc
ever ) for another snooze , sprang
from tholr beds and rushed into tin
It-\jas a laughable sight to BOO the res
idonta emerge from their various dwell
ings. Some
and others were oven loss dressed that
that , but all were bound in ono dirootior
lower Harnoy street.
Before the place wan reached groal
volumes of black smoke could bo aeon
pouring forth from the cupalo of the foui
atory building o'n Harnoy street , botwcer
Eleventh and Twelfth streets , occupied
i > y Leighton & Olarko , wholesale drug-
; ista. The ontirofiro department was
soon upon the ground but the interior
at the time of turning in the first alarm.
The fourth story was filled with flamoa
and smoke before a steam of water could
bo gotten into it.
' \7hon the hoao was laid and the water
turned on , the flames had broken through
.ho cupalo and other portions of thereof
roof and were leaping high in the air aa
f defying the power of the firemen or
the water which they endeavored'to throw
nto the building.
At the front of the building a long
adder was put up to the fourth atory
window and Officer Ituano seized the
notelo of the hose and hastily mounted to
, ho top. The thick smoke rolled forth
from the -windowd as if to stay him in hia
course and drive him back Tthonco ho
samo. This , however , had no effect upon
lira , and ho
until the water was turned on and ho
was able to turn into the building a well
directed and effective stream.
In the roar of the building two streams
voro being thrown up against and into
ho building , but the men who hold the
nozzles were upon the ground and it was
a hard task to otand upon the ground
and throw water with any certainty into
a small window foir ; stories abovo. In
consoquouco of this inconvenience much
of the water waa thrown against the
brick wall , with no other effect than to
plash back into the fasca and eyes of the
iromon and that of the crowd gathered
near and ran away down the alloy ,
A hose was carried up.- through Ilor's
iquor Btora.onto.tho roof and the stream
was thrown upon tbo'roof of the burning
building , but
Soon the boys got tholr bearings right
and landed water into the fourth story
window in good shape. This , with the
troam from the front was beginning to
ell and the flames began to succumb.
It was now thought that the fire was
under control and the firemen and spec-
ators breothdd moro caey , when ono of
hose unavoidable accidents occurred.
The hose which was doing such good
work from the rear
nd the water flow ever against the walls
f the building on the opposite eido of
ha alloy. The order waa given to shut
ho water off at the hydrant but not a
wrench could bo found , and for fully five
minutes men were running hither and
'on looking for a wrench , while some
of the excitable ones were vainly on-
savoring to unscrew the hoao frcm the
lydrant ,
During all Una delay the
nd by the tlmo another stream replaced
ho ono shut off , all that had boon gained
> y the firemen was lost and the odds
voro turned the other way. The flames
md worked farther forward in the
milding and were rapidly approaching
ho front.
The teams and carta were aont flying
or moro hose and several trips were
made hi various directions until all the
ivailablo hose in tbo city was in uao. The
look and ladder boys , with ladders upon
heir shoulders , ran around into the alloy
nd soon had a narrow stairway upon to
ho top of llcr'fl building. Up this a line
f hoao was dragged and in a few mo
menta a second stream wan playing from
ao top of llcr'a building on to the burn-
ug block ,
The flamca worked rapidly to the front
nd leaped from the windows into the
who received the order to come down
which they did. As the fiery , and forked
tongues leaped out of the windows they
cached around on all sides as if in search
f something to dovour. They darted
upward and with their ravenous jaws ,
appod around the heavy galvanized iron
ornico , which gave away like paper and
netted and dropped upon the sidewalk
In a few moments after the flamoa
> roko through the front windows
nd following this came the sharp report
f exploding chemicals , like the reports
t pistols.
As the chemicals began to explode the
rowd of spectators began to draw back
as if expecting a larger and moro serious
xploaion , but it did not come for it v M
now evident that the fire men had the
nd it would bo but a matter of a few
moments before nothing but blackened
nd charred ruins would bo soon. This
troved true , The fury of the fieroo
lames waa spent The demon had been
battled and , after a soveroetrugglo beaten ,
and all that remained waa to wet down
tuoh places a might help to ciuso it t <
break put nnow ,
During the progress of the fire thi
smoke had worked into llcr'a liquor stori
and waa issuing from the windows anc
doors and it was thought for a tlmo tha
the flames had found their way in amonj
the liquors. This thought waa followei
by the recollection of the burning o
Ifer'a liquor atoro some tlmo ainco anc
caused no little worry among these whc
are interested in the city's welfare
Luckily the smoke waa all that found iti
way into the store of Mr. Her and did nc
particular damage.
After the flames were subdued thoqucs
tlon naturaly waa
but to this there was no answer. Nobod ]
seemed to know. Those who claimed U
have soon it first , say that it started
in the basement and ran up the
elevator abaft into the fourth atory and
thence to the cupalo , where the flamci
first made their appearance.
The next question aakod waa :
but to this question the same answer wat
given aa to the former and no ono wat
found who could satisfactorily answer it ,
It certainly was a mysterious fire and
many claim it was caused by spontaneous
combustion , but whether this is so or no )
is not known.
The firm stated that their stock ol
gooda invoiced 8125,000. They had
upon the stock $84,000 insurance and
upon fixtures $1,200 , making iv total
insurance of § 85,200. The stock ia almost

committee has placed upon me the duty
of communicating with the clergy , ves
tries , and congregations of the diocese ,
upon tha subject. Subject , of course-to
any necessary modification , our
plan is this : To erect a
monument similar in every respect
