Boyle tohow to him the Dellone. It was then
ten tnlnulM to 9. Shearer slid also that ho
had been married , but refused to tate
whether he was n widower or not. Ho said
ho hail Jtwt mailed a couple of letters , ono
to Webb and another to Emma Shearer , 14
Brighton I'lacc , Allegheny City. Pa. Ho
said those were his children. Ho said ho
wanted to advise them how to live. Ho
then gave the names of some other parties
to whom ho had written. They were Ml > 8
Kittle Nicholson , Conncllsvlile. Pa. ; Mr. Mc
Ginn , Ottumwa , In. ; W. Kirkland. 14 Brigh
ton Place , Allegheny City. Pa. ; MIHon Gilt-
Tier , an uncle of Miss McCllntock , at Dan-
longc , la. Ho left another addressed to the
hotel proprletora , saying that his real name
was J. B. Shearer. He desired that a
telegram be Bent to Dr. W.V. . Shearer ,
Green Castle , Mo. , and another
to Mr. McGinn , agent Adams Express com
pany , Ottumwa ; also to turn over his be
longings to Dr. Shearer when he came
( meaning that ho would come for his ro-
malnii ) , and to turn over the letters .to Dr.
Shearer. The letter Is signed J. E. Shearer ,
alias II. J. Hughes. It gives a poitscrlpt
saying he assumed the latter namq because
a man by that name had been Intimate with
his promised wife In the room for which ho
asked when ho went to the hotel , and It was
Ills desire to occupy that room.
Shearer was then unable to say more , and
at last accounts was asleep.
The contents of the other letters ho re
fused to divulge , nor would ho allow them
to bo opened. Ho said something about a
statement ho would like to make before he
nhould die , but ho wanted Miss McCllntock
to bo with him when It was made. He
could not make It without her , and at last
ho said : "If I nee death U to come upon
mo I will make It ; 1 would have made It In
the room with her , but there was not time. "
Ho called for a drink , which was given
him , and ho fell back on the cot.
The man's wounds nt first were not
thought to bo serious. Dr. Snvlllc at first
nald ho thought the bullet , that had ap
parently entered the right lung cavity , might
have glanced off , whllo ho was certain the
ono that entered the left side would not
prove fatal. Later It appeared that the
man was bleeding Internally , and the doctor
thinks the wound In the lung may provo
Dr. Allison , who attended the woman ,
thinks she will recover.
MISS M'CLINTOCK'S STORY.
The wounded girl was seen at her room
In the Dellono hotel n few moments after
the shooting , and In giving her version of
the affair stated that she formerly resided
In Pcnnslyvanla , not far from the town of
Alleghany City , where she first met
Shearer , several years ago. Two years ago ,
leaving her mother , an Invalid , she came
west and remained with some relatives
near Ottumwa , la. , Ono year ago she came
to Omaha and shortly after her arrival
formed the acquaintance of II. J. Hughes ,
whom she recognized as a friend. The
friendship continued for some time. Liter
on she said that she returned to Iowa ,
where she again met Shearer and they became -
came engaged to be married. After that
she paid several visits to Omaha , meeting
Hushes each time and receiving his at
tentions. On December 15 they occupied a
room at the Midland hotel , not as man and
wife , but for the purpose of talking over
their affairs. Soon after this Hughes re
moved to San Diego , Cal. . and
she returned to Iowa , whore she
remained until Thursday , when she met
Shearer , and from Ottumwa they came to
this city together. They went to the Mid
land hotel , where they were assigned to a
room , Shearer registering as "II. J. Hughes
and wife. " After going to the room she
says that Shearer accused her of being un
faithful and also ot being intimate with
'lughes. This she denied , and a scuflle en-
cued , during which Shearer drew a revolver
and threatened her life. Just as ho was
about to fire , she says that the landlord
burst In the door to the room and drove
them out of the house. From there they
went to the Dellone , where her companion
registered as , "J. C. Shearer and wife. "
They were assigned to a room on
the second floor. As soon as they
had entered the room , the woman
says .that Shearer locked the door ,
drew the revolver from his pocket and
again accused her of being , Intimate with
other men , and especially so with Hughes.
Once more , she states that she denied the
charge , replying that Hughes was simply
her friend and nothing more. Charges and
counter charges were nude , after which
Shearer fired nt her once and then turned
the pistol upon himself and shot twice. As
soon aa she realized that ttho was shot , sha
states that she fled from the room , ran down
the stairs and fainted. She said that Hughes
has a brother who is a druggist on North
Miss McCllntock says she Is 1 ! ) yoara old.
She refuses to have her friends notified of

NORTH PLATTK , Neb. , May 18. ( Special
Telegram to The Bee. ) The advertised fistic
encounter between James Llndscy of Omaha
and \Vllllain Gibson of Cheycnno came on
tills evening and resulted at the cud of the
third round In a wrangle over a foul claimed
by Gibson , which the referee refused to
allow. The latter'j decision gave the fight
Several matches between local sports oc
curred before Llndscy and Gibson stepped
Into the ring. U was evident from the start
that the Omaha man was too much for the
Wyoming descendant of Ham. In the first
round the men sparred rather timidly for an
opening , which was not discovered by either.
In the second round , after several clinches , In
the break-away Gibson struck his opponent
and the latter claimed a foul , which was
not allowed. Round closed with honors
evenly divided. In the third round , after
cnns'derablo clinching , Llndsey succeeded In
planting a stinging blow under Gibson's left
optic , bringing the latter to his knees.
Whllo In this position Llndsey tapped him
playfully on the cheek. The Wyoming man
Immediately claimed a foul and left the ring
and refused to continue the fight.

Kunta Fo nnd IMIssba 1'Pacific Declare the
Wn&nt i , ii End.
From telegrams PeceSvid at Missouri Pacific
and Atchison headquarters it Is understood
that rates will be restored absolutely May
28 on the part of Ujcsa. roads , two days later
than the resloratlifii by the other trunk lines
engaged" in the figgX over. Cole > rad"oand south
western rates. Owls news wrfs received with
pleasant satisfaction by the Colorado lines
and everybody was feeling better than for a
week .past. Assistant General Freight Agent
.PhllllppLof the .Missouri Pacific corroborated
the rumor thati-Presldent Rlnehart of the
'Santa Fo and Vice President Warner of the
Missouri Pacific had Issued slmutaneously
notices of restoration ol rates May 28 , the
.requisite ten days notice thereby being given.
Although the fight was of short duration It
was one of the most disastrous In the history
of western railroads , the decrease in property
duo to the war amounting to about $3,000.000
In Colorado. Nebraska felt It somewhat , but
not to the extent of Colorado , a conservative
estimate as to the shrinkage In this state
being $750,000. In the southwest shippers
and others felt the reduction considerably ,
and as the war benefited nobody there Is the
pleasantest feelings noticeable among all
classes of business that the rates are to be
What effect the restoration will have on
contracts made is a question , but undoubt
edly the roads will carry them out on the
agreed upon basis , notwithstanding they
may fall below regular tariffs.
The Maximum Jtuto Hill.
Judge J. M. Woolworth , speaking of the
approaching hearing of the temporary In
junction granted by the circuit court of
the United States restraining the Board of
Railroad Commissioners from putting the
Newberry maximum rate bill Into effect ,
said that the case would probably bo argued
during the week commencing July 11 , Jus
tice Brewer of the supreme court having
thought Jte would be able to got to Omaha
about that tlmp. The taking of testimony
in the case has been completed nnd has been
printed for the benefit of the court , but
( Mr. Woolworth refused to give out any portion
tion of the testimony , as to the manner In
which the law became part of the statute
books previous to the pitting of the court.
.Tho case promises to bo a notable ono In
American jurlsprdence , ! as questions will"bo
raised that have never been raised before
regarding the rights of legislatures to pass
maximum rate laws. ,
Another ItatiiVur In Sight.
DENVER , May 18. The report that the'
Union Pacific Is offering a free ride around *
the mountain loop for four of the big con
ventions to bo held hero this summer. If it
proves true , will probably result In such a
passenger rnto war as has not been known
In a decade. The Rock Island has taken up
the glove by offering .the Republican Na
tional league excursionists a free ride to the
summit of Pike's Peak. The Santa Fo may
carry Its passengers free to Grand Junction
and return , un < \ the Missouri Pacific may
go Into a deal with the Rio Grande and
make circle rides free.

was very low with a cough and nt times
spit up much blood. I was not nblo to do
tuo least work , but most of the time was in
bod. I was all run-down , very weak , my
bead was dizzy anil I was extremely despon

to do mo much good , but I had faith In it
nnd continued using it until I bad taken
fifteen bottles nnd now I do not look nor

that you would bo living now.1 I can thank
fully say I am entirely cured of n discaso

would have resulted in my death. "
Even when the predisposition to consump
tion is inherited , it may bo cured , as verified
by the following from n most truthful nnd
much respected Canadian lady , Mrs. Thomas
Vonsickliu , of Brighton , Ont. She writes :
" I have long felt it my duty to acknowledge
to you what Dr. Pierco's Golden Medical
Discovery and his 'Pleasant Pellets' have
done for mo. They almost raised mo from
the grave. I had three brothers and ono
sister die of consumption and I was
speedily following after them. I had severe
cough , pain , copious expectoration nnd other
alarming symptoms and my friends all
thought I had but n few months to live. At
that time I was persuaded to try the 'Golden
Medical Discovery' nnd the first bottle
acted like magic. Of course , I continued on
with the medicine nnd as n result I gained
rapidly in strength. My friends were aston
ished. When I commenced tbo use of your
mcdlclt.es , sir years ago , I welched but ISO
pounds nnd was sinking rapidly. I now
weigh 135 , and my health continues perfect. "
