The mystery of the dead man at the
Tnorgiic has been solved. Yesterday a
Indy living in thu oily , Mrs. Selfert , vis
ited the rooms of Undertaker Roberts anil
nt once identified the man ns Julius Kic-
horn , from St. Louis , a young man whom
( the hail known from childhood. As the
lady viewed the remains nnd explained
knowledge of the dead man tears
welled from her eyes , nnd to every
spectator present it wns manifest that the
lost Identity of the dead had been found.
The man otico identified particulars con
cerning him were easily obtained. It
i wns nt once ascertained that he had
reached the city on Wednesday Inst , that
ho hnd stopped nt the St. Charles hotel ,
paid his bill in advance uulll Sunday
morning , and a valise containing clothes
of the dead man was found in the room
ho had occupied. The clothing in the
vniisc nnd the clothing on the body wcro
marked alike. Also in the valise was
found the revolver ease belonging to the
revolver found by the man's sido. A
brother-in-law of the lady also identified
the dead man as Julius Klchorii.
On Thursday and Friday last ho had vis
ited with both the parties who now ident
ified Him , but since that time had not
been seen. The mystery , however , con
cerning his manner of death remains ns
great ns ever , Was it suicide or was it
murder remains yet unanswered , nnd the
coroner's jury , which has not yet con
cluded its investigations , is unable to se
cure nny clew or testimony that tends to
throw nnv conclusive light on the sub
ject. A brother of the dead man , August
Kichorn , whoso ndtlress is 831 South
Third street , St. Louis , hns been tele
graphed , and until an answer Is received
from him the body will bo kept at the
coroner's. That the investigation into
the mysterious death must bo complete
is the sentiment of all. The strange fea
tures of it , the finding of the body alone
by the wayside without money on the
person or papers of any kind , and the
further fact that the pistol shot in the
head did not leave n burn or scorch on
the face or hair , all tends against the
theory of suieidu and but leads deeper in
the strangeness of the stranger's ' death.

William Kwnrth , held for the murder of
his half brother , Herman Mnhs , the par
ticulars of which were largely given in
yesterday's BIK : , had his preliminary
hearing before Justice Cochran yesterday
under complaint of murder iu the second
degree , anil was by that official bound
over under $2,000 bonds to answer for the
commission of the crime nt tuc coming
term of the district court. The bond was
readily given aud Ewarth returned to his
homo in the country. The testimony in
the case , ns cited by the witnesses pres
ent , was not of n damaging character to
the prisoner , nnd it is the belief that the
prisoner on trial will bo acquitted. The
testimony showed that the slabbing re
sulted from a quarrel ; that it wns un
known at the time it wns done , by
I the witnesses of the fracas , and that
Iho aggressive party wns , almost entirely ,
tlio man who mct.lus death. The father
of the ( load man was ono of the witnesses
to the trouble and one of Iho men to give
evidence at the hearing , all of which wns
of a mild ami harmless nature.

did exactly right in not entering on a

that the Stale Journal company , with IU
prevailing .sentiment , wns ready to assist
the salt company iu getting n monopoly
of the wells , but the board of public lands
anil buildings were not inc'ined ' to em
bark on nn uncertainty on the part of llio
state. Mr. Russell gave some facts con
cerning thu worth ot brine that liavo been

in nuy of tlio wells tests lots Ihan ninety-

response to the query as to llio possibili
ties for finding a flow of that strength.
Mr. Uuvsoll said that chances wore fn-
vorablu when a son-level was reached of
striking it ; the well is now down to within
less than a hundred feet of sea-level and
in going n thousand feet moro either
brine or solid salt may bo obtained.

Douglas the course of the river is nearly

last letter , "the future great , " as the
jealous press of the other and uliler towns
facetiously called Douglas , is situated
near tlio center of a plain or valley aver
aging from ono to two miles wide. The
viuw here is simply splendid. On the
West is the Laraniio range of mountains ,
in full view , and some forty or forty-live
miles south , but frequently appearing to
be scarcely a rille shot away , rises the
famous Laraniio Peak , a tall , steep ,
pointed mountain , towering toward tlio
clouds and overlooking all the otliur
peaks of Its range , and from whoso sum
mit MIOW can bo seen a largo portion of
Several years ago , some seven miles
northwest of lioro , on a high tract of
ground at the confluence of the North
Pintle and La Prclo creek , on the north-
Dank of the former , was located the fain
ous military post of Fort Fettorman. It
novel1 had any forlilications like a fort
proper , but consisted simply of a few
barracks and warehouses for
commissary supplies. Several com
panies of soldiers wcro stationed
thorn to hold jn cheek tlio Indians that
then infested this country and committed
the worst atrocities and barbarities im
aginable on the frontiersmen and emi
grants , but the red men wcro finally
forced on to reservations , and about four
years ago the troops were withdrawn
and Fort Fettorman was abandoned as a
military post. The government build
ings were sold at auction and purchased
for a trillo by discharged soldiers and
othor.s , and a little village or trading
point has sineo boon kept up , quite a pat
ronage being derived by the merchants
and business men from the stock ranches
in thib portion of the territory.
Taking its name from said military
post , this section of country , including
the eastern half of central Wyoming , has
been known as "tho Fettennan country , "
and whun it became certain that this par-
adi o of the stockmen and the cowboys
was actually to bo Invaded by the great
est civilizor the world ever know , the
locomotive , people from all the states
and territories turned their attention this
way. As Fort Fottorman Is located in
the center of a military reservation or
tract of land some six by ton miles in
area , it was of course impossible to locate
the proposed new town at or near bald
military post , BO tlio railroad company ,
or rather the townsito company , secured
COO acres of land at this point just cast
and outsldo of the reservation , and about
a month ago the town of Douglas was
The reader will no donbt inquire , "Why
was it not called Fcttcrman instead of
Douglas ? " The reason is : Everybody iu
this section desired that it bo called Fet-
tcrman , and no opportunity was neglect-
cd to have their wishes made known to
the town silo company. The latter read
ily acceded to the popular demuuil , but
the postotlico department refused on ac
count of having postoflices named i't.
Fiittcrmnn and Fcttcrman , as a similarity
of names always causes much trouble
and annoyance in handling the mails.
Finally thu name of Douglas was given ,
in honor , I understand , of the lamented
Stephen A Douglas. The change was
very unsatisfactory at first , and it set
people outside to studying geography
( through the newspapers ) , but wo arc all
getting accustomed to it and the term
"Tho Douglas country , " will soon become
as familiar and popular as the old title.
As early as March pcoplo began com
ing here and looking over thu situation.
The iirst location , of course , wasasaloon ,
a little wooden shanty being erected for
tlio purpose. The second was u restau
rant in a tent , the third a grocery in a
tent , and the fourth was a tent nine feet
square , pitched by your correspondent
and four companions This constituted
the town about the Iirst of April.
The little settlement was established
on one corner of the company's land ,
whore it was known the town plat or
survey would not reach , and from that
time on people begun to como in. On
the 12th of Juno a canvass showed that
wo bad about two hundred pcoplo hero ,
and business tents and houses were being
established so rapidly that it became
necessary to form streets between them.
Everything moved along nicely until one
day the railroad surveyors came along
and sot grade stakes directly through
our little town , and a few days later the
graders came along and commenced
work and about half the touts and build
ings bait to bo moved. Previous to this ,
in fact last year. Mr. Frank S. Lusk , of
the town by that name , fifty-five miles
east of lioro , had purchased a tract of
land adjoining : the company's townsito
land on the north. This was his oppor
tunity for a speculation , so ho platted a
portion of it iu blocks and lots and
streets and Is reaping a rich financial
harvest by renting lots for live and ton
dollars a month each , according to loca
tion. Of course this raised a storm of *
indignation and n largo crop of profan
ity , but there was no help for it , and the
greater portion of the towu Is now on
the Lusk land.

some thirty odd blocks about thrco-quar-
tors of a mile south , which I will discrlbit
fully in my next letter , when I will also

Iho Century : "Fifty or sixty years
ajro tlin gypsies in England wore a much
more remarkable race than they are at
present. The railway had not come to
break up their habits : there were hun
dreds of lonely places In dell and dmglo
where they could 'hatch the tan , ' or
pitch the tent ; their blood had been lit
tle mixed with that of the 'Uorgio,1 or
gcntllo. They spoke their language witli
greater purity than at present , and still
kept their old characteristics unchanged.
If they had the faults of the Arabs , they
had also many of their good qualities. If
they stole horses and foraged on farmers ;
if tlielr women told fortunes , lied , and
sometimes cheated a man out of all his
ready money by pretending to ilnd a
treasure in his cellar , on the other hand
they wore extremely grateful and honest
to those who befriended them , and mani
fested in many ways a rough manliness
which partially rcdeomcu their petty
vices , They wore all , as are many ot
their sons at present , indomitable 'rough
riders' 'of tnc horse horsey , ' and , to a
man , boxers , so that many of them were
distinguished in the prize-ring , the last of
these being Jem Mace. At this time
tbcro prevailed among the English
Romany a strong , mutual faith , a tribal
honesty , which was limited but all the
stronger for that even as the arms of a
man grow stronger when he loses the use
his legs. They wcro a people of power
ful frames , passions , and traditional
principles. Their weak children soon
died troin the hardships of nomadic life ,
the remainder illustrated selection by
Bufl'oring , and the survival of the fittest
"With such characteristics there could
not fail among the gypsies man } striking
instances of warm friendship , intense
love , and the fidelity which endures oven
till death. This was known of them
when little clso was known beyond their
most apparent and repulsive traits.
Walter Scott indulged in no romantic
license when he depicted Hayrnddin
Mangrabln devoted to Qiiontln Durward ;
even at present the Incident of a thought
ful gift or any little act of kindness to
them will bo remembered with a grati
tude out of nil proportion to Its value ,
and go the rounds of all the Romany in
the United States , Anil , therefore , when
men fell in love with women there often
resulted those Instances of inteiiHo passion
and steady faith which at Iho present
day are really becoming mythical. The
cypsy in this , as in everything else , has
boon a continuation of the middle
ages , or of the romance era.
"Such a passion was inspired more
than half a century ngo by Jack Cooper ,
the Kurumcngro Horn , or lighting gypsy ,
in a girl of his own trlbo. nor pamo was
Charlotte Leo , and it was about 1830 that
Lcslio , the royal academician , led by the
fame of her beauty , puinted the picture ,
now in New York in the possession of his
sister , Mies Emma Leslie , troni which an
engraving was tauen. The fame of her
charms still survives among her people ,
and when a few days ago as I write , 1 was
talking of Charlotte to some gypsies of
her kin near Philadelphia , I was asked if
meant the Rlnkeui that is , the beauti
ful ono. "
An Important Decision.
Estellino Bell : A man was recently
brought before a Ynnkton ( D. T. ) justice
of the peace on the charge of assault and
battery. "Tho complaint says that you
attacked this man with a knife and nearly
killed him ; how is it ? " said the jtisice.
"Yes , 1 stabbed at him a few times ; he
came up to my house and began abusing
mo and calling mo names and "
"That's no reason for assaulting him the
way yon did. " "Hold on a , minute ,
iiidge ; then he jumped around and said
no could lick rno and struck nt mo "
"Still you had no business to attack him
so savagely ; you nearly killed him. "
"That's all right , Your Honor , I'll ex
plain ; then ho wont on to abuse my wife
and began chasing the children around
the yard and " "That will do von
had'no excuse for attacking ( him with n
knife ; you should have called a police
man to rcmovo him ; 1 must hold you for
attempt to kill. " "Just another word ,
iudgo , after that he walked over and
kicked my do < ? and " "Hoy ? kicked
that liver-colored bird-dog of yoursV
"ISot ho did , judge ; walked right up to
him when no wa'n't doin' nothin' and
kicked him right in thoside. " "Yes , and
just as like as not injured him so you
can't hunt with him this season ; why
didn't you tell me this at first ? you did
perfectly right in going at him with a
knife , and I discharge you. Mr. Plain
tiff , just whack up a $10 line to this court
tfor kicking the dog. "
