no seriously and five more considerably
ptpuei'd .'.1th ahot la the result of an af
nay in this city this afternoon. The
caue of It all, AugusfKrueger, la the most
seriously Injured of any and now Ilea In
the Jail at Avoca. He , will probably die
from his wounds. , Dr. Stephens la dan
gerously wounded and , Jamea Duncan
seriously. The other Injured are Jesse
Sidebotham, Franklin, ' Charles Bat
telle, Gerald Johnson and Harry James.
All are residents of Hancock,
Krueger, who la a wealthy retired farmer,
la usually peaceable man, but la Inclined
to be quarrelsome when drinking. A few
days ago he went to Avoca and brought
home a jug of whlalty. His wife, fearing
trouble, got It away from him and locked
It up In a closet. This afternoon Krueger
demanded possession of the Jug, which his
wire refused and he threatened to kill her
and started to put his threat Into execu
tion. The woman ran from the house be
fore Krueger could procure and load hla
gun. A block up the street she met Dr.
Stephens and appealed to him for help.
Stephen, thinking to quiet Krueger and
secure the gun, went to the Krueger home
and asked him to give up the gun, but
Instead of complying Krueger fired several
shirs a-t Stephen before he could get out
of range. Two of the shots took effect,
one In the shoulder and the other In the
thigh.' While not fatal the wounds are
of a dangerous character. '
The little town was by this time thor.
oughly aroused and neighbors, armed with
guns, flocked to the scene and A shotgun
duel" Immediately ensued. Tt was In this
fusillade that the others ' were Injured'.
Finally the attacking party procured a
targe section of sheet metal and, with this
as a shield, advanced on the Krueger house
and demanded that the occupant surrender.
After some further parley and the exchange
of some more shots Krueger complied. It
will then discovered that Krueger had been
dangerously and probably fatally wounded.
One load of shot atruck him In the chest
In the neighborhood of the heart, another
one In the thigh and there were scattering
ahot wounda on almost every portion of hla
The people of Hancock were ao Incensed

IN LAIR OF TRUSTS
(Continued from First Page)
stroyed the democratic party, there ought
to be dozens of able republicans who would
be available aa a candidate, oa It would
appear that almost any n ubllcan could
win with the democratic party wiped out.
There would then' be no necessity of giv
ing President Roosevelt what would be re
garded by many as practically a third term.
With such an easy victory for the repub
licans ahead, why, he asked, should not
somebody else be given a chance?
"Jim Crow" Laws.
When asked what he thought of the
criticism by democrats of his Idea - of
federal ownership of railroada, Mr. Bryan
said that he never had advocated any
thing that waa not opposed In some quar
ters. He waa told that some of the south
ern democrats seemed alarmed lest the
"Jim Crow" cars should be eliminated
by the adoption of his Ideas of fedora!
ownership. Mr. Bryan, m reply to this,
said that If the various states owned'
the lines within their borders the local
law would continue to be enforced. He
waa asked If he meant that negroes and
whltea would be separated ir the state
had a Jim Crow" law, to which he re-,
plied that the atate laws would naturally
hold good on local lines. . He did not care
at this time to discuss the details of how
the plan would effect the carriage of
whites and negroes on the through lines
under federal control. He had noticed
that ' one citizen, who did not give, hla
name, waa very much worked up about
the possible abolishment of the "Jim
Crow" cars, but he never attempted to
answer the arguments of men who did
not give their name and that he hoped
to talk In various parts of the country
and deal with the aubject more com
pletely than he could in conversation.
Will Not Go to new Zealand.
Mr. Bryan announced a change of plan
regarding his proposed trip to New
"I think I shall not go," he said, "for
I've been away from home a long time
and It' feela good to get back. I , had In
tended to go there after' the election, but
have decided not to."
William J. Bryan today .received from
the American Anti-Trust league the follow
ing letter, endorsing his speech of Thure-
aay night at Madison Square Garden, espe
cially that portion referring to a war on
trusts and the government ownership of
Hon. William Jennings Brvan: On be
half of the American Anti-Trust league
end expressing, as we firmly believe, the
sentiments of the great majority of gorxl
citisens who are opposed alike to the evils
of monopolies and the dangers of socialism,
we welcome you home and expreaa to you
our gratification and appreciation for all
of your great speech of Thursday night at
Madison Square Garden, and more espe
clall for your Invincible stand In favor
of, not the regulation, but the deatructlon
of the criminal trusts and for the govern
ment ownership of railroada.
We hold that the experience of all civ
ilised nationa has fairly established the
principle thst the maintenance of high
ways Is one of the chief functions of gov
ernment or of the few great attrlbutea of
sovereignty of which no atate can divest
Itself of without destroying that great prln.
clple of equality ef rights which Is the very
cornerstone of the American republic. We
rejoice in your courage and are proud of
the ability with which you are teaching
the doctrines of JefTereonlan dernoeracy
and the principles of the American Anti
Trust league. We recognize your leader
ship in America for the coming battle tor
the achievement of the last and greatest
rights of man. namely, the eoonomlo lib
erty of all men and women. We pledge
you our hearty and enthuslaatlo support
and bid you Godspeed in the good work.
