LiTHiior , Cnl. , August 11 On the arrival
of tbo southern ovorlntid train licro at 7:20 :
this moraine , United States Bupromo Judge
Stephen J. Field and Deputy United States
Marshal Nuglo walked Into the depot dining
room for breakfast and sat down sklo by
sldo. Soon alter Judge David S. Terry aud
wife caino'in also. They proceeded to an
other table. Mrs. Terry , evidently recogniz
ing Justice Field , did not sit down , but re
tired to the trnln for some unknown purpose.
Uoforo reaching It , however , and
as soon as she had loft
the dining room , Judpo Terry approached
Justice Field and gently slapped his face. At
this Juncture Doputv Marshal Nuglo arose
from his seat and shot Judge Terry appar
ently through the heart. As ho was falling
Naglo llrcd again , missing him. Both shots
were fired In vary quick succession.
Judge ' ' . 'orry never uttered a sound after
being shot. Ho baa hardly fallen when Mrs.
Terry rushed to the side of bis body and
threw herself upon it. Then ensued a scene
of the wildcat excitement. People rushed
from the dining room and othurs rushed
in. During this time Justice
Field and Deputy Marshal Nngle re
treated to the Bleeping car , where
they were securely locked in at the time Mrs.
Terry called upon the crowd to arrest them.
Before the trnln pulled out Constable Walker
entered the sleeper and was carried away on
board the train. Ho informed the spectators
that ho knoxv his duty , and would perform it.
During the time the train was standing at
the dcnot Mrs. Terry wus running wildly ul-
tcrnatolv from the body of her husband to
the sleeper , demanding admittance , that she
might slop Justice Field's faco. She at the
same time demanded that thuy ba detained ,
nnd thuir examination bo made here. Previ
ous to the cntrunro of the constable into the
Bleepor the sheriff and deputy of Stanislaus
county had already taken charge of Marshal
Alter the shooting the deputy marshal
1 backed against the wall of the dining-room
nnd warned everyone not to arrest him , say
ing that he was a United States ofticcr in the
discharge of his duty. There was no sem
blance of an attempt to molest him at uuy
time. A constable took Deputy Nnglo from
the train at Tracy and proceeded with him
TO Stockton , whore ho is now In Jail. District
.Attorney White ordered the arrest of Jus-
"ice Field upon his arrival in San Francisco
and telegraphed the order to the sheriff of
* oan Francisco.
| David S. Terry was born In Todd county ,
-ventucky , in 163. ) . Ho served in the Texas
tinny under Sam Houston. Ho came to Cal
ifornia in 1S49 and settled in Calavaras
county. In 1855 be was elected Justice of the
Bupromo court of California on the native
American ticket , and upon the death of Chief
Justice Murray in 1857 Judge Terry became
ohlof Justice. Ho was opposed to the vig-
tlnnco committee of Ib50 , and stubbed
wno of the members of the committee
who had attempted to arrest Maloncy , u
-rlond of Terry. Terry was hold by
the vigilantes , but released later. Terry
was looked upon as a man of desper
ate courage , who hesitated at nothing that
would further his plans. On the 13th of
Septemoor , 1859 , ho fought n duel with Sen
ator David C. Brodoriclt , near San Francisco -
cisco , and killed him. Brodorlck opposed
the extension of slavery , and ceased to act
with the democratic party , of xvhich Terry
was a lending member iu California. The
duel was thn result. At the meeting Broder-
ick shot In the ground , but Terry , with the
natural vindlctlvencssof his disposition , tired
to kill. Broilorick fell , and after lingering
about thirty-six hours expired. The kill
ing was looked upon with horror as one of
the most cold-blooded affairs tmit had hau-
pcncd when times were dcspernta and affairs
of the kind frequent. Terry was never
brought to Justice. In later years
Judge Terry has been n somewhat
noted practitioner in the courts. Ho
was employed by Sarah Althea Hill as
counsel in the celebrated case of Hill vs
Sharon , wherein Miss Hill sued Senator
Sharon for divorce and alimony. During
the progress of this case Terry married
Miss Hill and continued us her conn-
uol throughout it. The marriage created
much comment in San Francisco and no lit
tle ridicule. At the time of the final hearing
of the case before Justice Field , Judge Terry
nnd Miss Hill both threatened to kill the jus
tice , creating the wildest excitement in the
court room. They were both locked in the
court room and later placed under arrest ,
Slnco the conclusion of the trial there has
been the deepest animosity existing
between the parties , but it was not
thought it would terminate fatally. In 18SO
Terry was defeated as a Hancock elector , al
though his associates wore elected. Septem
ber 8 , 1883 , ho was sent to Jail for six months
by Justice Field for contempt of court. ]
To Arrest .Iiidfjo Field.
SAN I'UANCISCO ! , August 14. The chief of
police received a dispatch from Sheriff Cun
ningham , of Stockton , to arrest Judge Field
nnd Doputv Marshal Naglo on the arrival of
the train nt Oakland. Captain Lees at once
loft for Oakland and will take them into cus
tody unless they hnvo left the train at some
point along the road.
The announcement that Judge Terry
bnil been shot and killed at the railroad depot
at Lathrop this morning as a result of an
attempt to provoke a personal altercation
with Justice Flold caused extraordinary ex
citement In this city. The scene of the trag
edy Is eighty-throe miles from the city by
rail and is the breakfasting
station for the southern overland train.
'Iho possibility of an encounter between
Terry and Justice Field has boon rccognUed
ovnr Mnce the imprisonment of Terry for
contempt of court , ten months ago , during
the trial of the suit with his wife , Sarah
Althl'ii Hill , who was prosecuting the claim
against Senator Sharon's estate , alleging she
was the wife of the dead senator.

SAW FHAKCISCO , Auguit 14. Justice Field
wns seen by an Associated Press reporter on
bis arrival hero thin afternoon , Ho said that
for the lust two months all soils of reports
luwo reached him , that Judge Terry had
threatened to subject him to some form of
indignity should ho meet him. This fact
finuscd the United States marshal to decide
to provide such protection as ho could during
Justice Field's stay in the state.
"At thn Lathrop eating house this morn
ing , " said Justice Field , "I took a scat at n
table , while. Nagle s.it on one sldo of mo.
Terry and his wife came in soon after. As
BOOH us Mrs , Terry saw mo she wont out of
the room , as I afterwards learned , returning
to the car for her satchel. Judge Terry
arose and I supposed ho Intended to accom
pany her. Instead of doing so ho walked
buck of mo aud otruuk mo a heavy slap in
the face. I was completely astonished. As
ho was milking ready to strike again Deputy
Marshal Naclo cried , 'Stop I Stop ! " and as
ho was raising his arm a second tlino Nuglo
shot at him , the bmlul entering his heart.
' 1 hat is all 1 know of the mutter , " said the
Justice Iu conclusion.
Protection was accorded to Justice Field ,
It 1 claimed , by Iho authority of Attorney
( Jeneral Miller , who Instructed the marsnal
of the district to see that the persons of
Justice Flela and Circuit Judge .Sawyer
wuro protected. Mrs. Terry , it will bo re
membered , made a personal assault upon
Judfe Sawyer lust year. The order for pro-
.cctlon was based upon thoao facts and upon
threats declared to have boon made openly
Dy Terry against Justice Field. The latter
haa not been arrested , and the notice which
it was said was sent to that office by the
district attorney of San Juaquln , it In that
form , was not carried out.
Told by nn Kyo Witness ,
SAN FKANCISCO , August 14. Among the
passengers on the Southern Overland train
this morning was Colonel H , G. Otis , editor
of the Los Angeles Times. Ho was standing
outside the depot dining room at Lathrop
when the shooting of Judge Terry occurred ,
and was ut the scone of the tragedy n mo
ment later. In an interview ho said :
"Tho train arrived nt Lathrop nt 7:10 : a. m.
Justice Field was among the lirst passengers
to enter the dining room. Ho took n seat at
n table facing the door. United States Dep
uty Marshal Nnglo eat nt his side. Soon af
ter they sat down , David S. Terry and his
wife entered the room. When Mrs. Terry
saw Justice Field she turned aud hurriedly
went back to the train , the supposition
being thatoho went aftoraplstolorabottloof
vltrol. Terry sal down ut a lablo further up
in the dinning room , and while waiting to bo
served glared at Field. Presently ho arose
and walked over to the lattor's chair. Judge
Field was loaning over his plate , nnd
Judge Terry approached him from behind ,
and , without a word of warning , dealt lilm
a blow on the sldo of the face. At that in
stant Nngle cried : ' ( laidI Hands off that
miml' Justice Field looked up , and as ho
told mo afterward , never saw such n picture
of incarnate hatred as that depicted upon
Terry's face. Terry did not the
heed the marshal's warning and raised
his clenched list to deliver n
second blow. That menacing posture was
the last net of Ills life. As quick as n flash
Nuglo drew his pistol and sent a bullet
through hit head , and thun another not over
an inch from where the first had struck
him. A great commotion then arose In the
dining hall , and on the platform outside.
Mrs. Terry ran about fn.m the train to the
dining hall door , frantically demanding her
satchel , which some one had taken from her.
She then stormed the door , demanding
entrance and charging those who
barred her out with shielding murderers.
I happened to know that the deputy marshal
was acting under direct orders fiom the at
torney general to protect the persons of
Judges Field and Sawyer atall hazards This
order was made in consequence of the fre
quent threats which Terry had mudo against
the lives of these two Judges. In conversa
tion with me Judge Field said ho
was not responsible for the constant
attendance of the deputy and was rather
annoyed nt It. Ho did not want
a bodyguard , but the officer Insisted upon
carrying out his Instructions to the letter.
He went on the same train with the Justice
to Los Angeles and hud faithfully guarded
his person up to the moment of tha tragedy.
He was in the faithful discharge ot his
sworn duty when he killed Terry. Justice
Field told me ho was not armed. Ho said
ho had been frequently urged to arm him
self , but would never do so , and had declared
that when it became necessary for a Justice
of the United States supreme court to go
about the performance of his duty carrying
firearms with which to protect his person , it
would bo time to abolish the courts.
Tim Man Who Took : the Satohnl.
SAN FUANCIBCO , August 14. A passenger
on the train at Luthrop this morning says
that when bo hoard the shooting ho ruslicd
out of the car and saw Mrs. Terry with a
satchel In her hand. She was trying to open
it and Ho took it from her. She tried to gain
possession of It again , but failed. When the
satchel was opened afterwards a pistol was
found in it.
Navle In Jail.
STOCKTON , Cal. , August 14. The coroner
arrived hero at 12:40 : to-day with Terry's
body in a box covered with white cloth.
Mrs. Terry rode in the express car with the
remains , accompanied by several friends of
the deceased. When the body was taken
off the car she followed and rode with it in
the express wagon to the morgue. She was
distressed and said It was a cowardly mur
der of an uuarmed man. An inquest will beheld
hold to night.
Deputy Marshal Naglo was brought hero
In a buggy by Constable Walker , of Lathrop ,
nt 10:30. : When tbo overland tram loft
Lathrop after the shooting the constable got
in the car and arrested Nagle. Ho rode with
him to Tracy and there took a buggy to
Stockton to avoid a crowd. When Nnglo
reached the jail ho alighted from the
buggy and came in with his coat cover
ing his handcuffed hands. Naglo re
fused to bo interviewed. He said : "I
am n United States marshal and
simply did my duty as an ofllcer. "
He was looked up alone and soon after
sent for a local attorney. His pistol was
given to the Jailer. U is a largo 41 oalibro
Colts revolver of old pattern with two
charges exploded. Naglo was very cool , but
looked pale nnd determined. On boinir
searched he gave up everything without

SAN FKAHCISOO , August 14. David Naglo ,
the deputy United States marshal who killed
Terry , is well known in this city. In the latter
part of the ' 70s no wont to Arizona and
in 1881 ho received au appointment
as chief of police of Tombstone. While oc
cupying that position ho had frequent en
counters with the criminal clement , und by
his behavior ho soon earned for himself the
reputation of a man of indisputable courage
and bravery. Ho shot and killed a Mexican
desperado in Tombstone after a fierce en
counter. Naglo was appointed a deputy
United States marshal here a your ago , nnd
when Tarry mudo the assault on Marshal
Franks last September Naglo disarmed til in.
Nnglo is nuout thirty-eight years old , and
has uwifo and family living iu this city.
The Attorney ( Joiiernl Explain * ) .
iNDiANAroMS , August 14. Attorney General -
oral Miller was found at his home and naked
concerning the command which ho
was quoted as buying made to
thu marshal at San Francieco. "It
was given out. " ho said , "under
my dlroctlou. There was danger that Judge
Terry , who was stated to bo u violent und
desperate man , would likely rnako u deadly
assault upon Judge Field and Judge
Sawyer ono or both of them and
that some precautions ought to betaken
taken iu the promises. I therefore called
the attonMon of the marshal of that district
to those statements , and I told him that it
was duo to the country and the courts that
precautions should be taken to keep the
peace aud protect the courts and judges in
the discharge of their duties. "

Dr.s MOINES , la. , August 14. | Special
Telegram to TUB UEH. | Tno most exciting
contest in a state convention for many year *
was the fight for gorornor in the republican
state convention to-day.
The convention was very largo , too largo
to ba handled easily , consequently each can
didate had n small army of shoutcrs. There
seemed to be n great deal moro noise than
organization in each camp. The Hull men
were particularly enthusiastic- and spent
good , valuable time In walk in. up and down
and shouting that they were winners.
The same wns true to some ox-
tout of the Wheeler men , though
they had a bolter organization. The Hutch
ison men wore fewer in number , but they
included excellent politicians , who , without
oaylng much , kept getting their forces in u
compact mass that could hold together in
The opera house- was an inspiring sight
this morning when the convention nssum-
bled. Two thousand people were anxiously
looking out upon the scone , watching every
move In the game. Flags and bunting and
pictures of statesmen and soldiers were scon
in profusion. Among the" 1,200 delegates
there were a great many strangers , und many
of the fnccs of well known lownns
who have usually boon among the
leaders at republican conventions wuro
conspicuously absent. Among some of the
faces that wore mlssodwero : J S. ClorUson
and Pete Hepburn , both of whom are now
in Washington ; John A. ICasson , who has
not yet returned from his Berlin triumph ;
James Rich , of Dubuquc , the keenest organ
izer In tno state ; John Q. Huunolls , now
general consul for the Pullman company at
Chicago , nnd many othurs.
The temporary chairman , Hon. John N.
Irwln , of Kookuk , who is also ono of the
owners of the Chicago Times , made a speech
that will road a. great deal better than it
sounded , for ho has a poor voice for public
speaking. Uut it was an eloquent and
scholarly production and was received with
cheers , particularly the allusions to Allison ,
Kusson , Clarkson , Larrabeo und other dis
The selection of a permanent chairman was
very unfortunate , the honor being given to n
young attorney named Soliingur , of Carroll
county. Ho has a very high opinion of his
own oratory , and made n speech that was
tedious and hut. Tbo audience wearied before -
fore ho finished , and tried to cheer him down.
Ho could not preside with any force at all ,
und the convention got away from him sev
eral times. Dispensing with the nominating
speeches , thu convention began balloting at 'J
p. m. and kept It up straight for several
hours. As there are ninety-nine counties in
Iowa It takes u Ion ; time to call the roll , so
that each ballot stretched out , and at 0
o'clock but ton ballots had been taken.
It was known that Governor Larrabeo
had consented to let " his name
go into the convention , but it was shrewdly
done only to keep the delegates that favored
him from going to Hull on the first ballot
and givinar Hull the moral effector that vote.
As the ballots progressed for the first few
times there were many surprises , as the re
sult chewed whore solemn promises In differ
ent cases had been broken. It was soon seen
whom Larrabeo favored. Each of the three
leading candidates had claimed that ho was
for him , but after his name was withdrawn
his homo county cast one 'vote ' for Hutchi
son , ono for Hull and thirteen votes for
Wheeler , and stuck to it with little devia
There was a sensation on the sixth ballot
when the first break in an instructed delega
tion occurred. Marion county had been voting
ing solidly forWheoler until then. When
the county xvas called the chairman , as
usual , announced "thirteen votes lor
"Ono for Hull , " hhoutod a delegate.
Instantly tnere were cheers from hundreds
fur Hull and groans from the Wheeler mon.
Great excitement prevailed , which the chair
man tried in vain to still with his gavel. The
chairman of the delegation shouted that no
man had u rU'ht to vote against the instiuc-
tions of his county.
"Yes he has. " "No gag law , " and hisses
of disapproval were hoard on every sirto.
When order was restored it turned out that
there were three votes for Hull recorded
from Iho Marion couuty delegation aud the
Wheeler grip was broken.
There was little excitement until the eighth
ballot was taken , which showed decided
gains for Senator Hutchison. Then his fol
lowers nearly raised the roof with their
yells. Ho gained still moro in tbo ninth and
then fell off a little. By this tlmo an attempt
was made to adjourn for supper but this was
defeated , nnd ono mnro ballot was taken
with slightly different results. At 7 o'clock
the opposing forces took adjournment for an
hour and at 8 o'clock the fight was resumed.
When the convention re-assembled at8
o'clock the delegates settled down to the bal-
letting as if they expected to spend the night.
Hull and Wheeler had both gained n Iittlo
in the recess while Hutchison had fallen
off. The opera house wus packed with vis
itors and delegates watching the partici
pants in the greatest deadlock that Iowa or
any other state has soon for years. AS the
evening were on the convention began to
amuse Itself by voting for local candidates
In different parts of the state to complement
them , Whllo now aud then some rural
dclngato would bo seen nodding , ut
terly oblivious to politics and candidates ,
aud so the evening passed invay. The men
who had prophesied that the whole thing
would bo settled in five ballots began to look
funny when more than 111 teen had produced
no change , and to conclude that this is likely
to bo the greatest con test for the governor
ship that IOWP republicans had ever known.
A motion to adjourn was defeated and the
twentieth ballot proceeded with , which ro-
rosultud : HutchInson 575 , Hull 255 , Wheeler
' . ' 85. Irwin 85 , Crape 4.
Under the rules nothing could bo done butte
to proceed to another ballot , whicn was
done amlil much confusion , and resulted :
Hull 891 , Wheeler 303. Hutchmson 3'J3.
The third attempt of the evening to ad
journ was made and defeated , nnd the
twenty-second resulted : Hull 440 , Wheeler
U51 , Hutchlnson U5U , Crape 8. An effort was
made 10 udfourn until morning , and after
Bovcrul amendments were moved und do-
footed , tbo roll was called and resulted fa
vorably , and at 1U:80 : tlio convention ad
journed to U a. m. to-morrow.

the capital that a number of letters have re
cently been received which warned ttio ofll-
cors of the supreme court that it was the
intention of Terry to make nn attempt upon
the life of Justice Field. It Is understood
that this Information led to uu ofllclal com

which it wns suggested that precautions
should bo taken to prevent the blood-thirsty
husband of Sarah Althca from carrying out
his design. Whllo thu details of the affair
nro necessarily meager , it is believed there
that Deputy Marshal Naglo was required to
keep within sight of Justice Field atoll
times and to bo prepared to defend him
against any hostile demonstration. The
opinion is freely expressed that Nuglo regarded -
garded himself as the special guardian of
the dignity ns well ns the life of the associ
ate justice , and that ho must have believed
that the danger was Imminent when ho fired
