seat At the election last fall it is alleged that by manipulation of ballots it was made the permanent seat Tho people of Boston claim that Spring field has not the worth of county rropertynecessary to prevent the county from being moved by vote this fall Adopted Vigorous Measures The only available building for a coun ty court house was a hotel building in Boston A few weeks ago this was sold at sheriffs sale and bought by Spring field parties Saturday night a party left Springfield for Boston with machinery to move the building to the former town for use as a court house thus preventing the county seat Issue from being raised this fall on the ground of insufficient property Boilers were put under the building which is three stories high and the finest In the county and twenty teams were hitched to it Inside the house were sta tioned twelve men armed with Winches ter rifles The Boston People on the TralL Tha building was moved about five miles toward Springfield which is about twentyfive miles from Boston when the people of the latter place discovered the trick and immediately organized All available horses and rifles were brought into requisition and a strong party start ed ptirsuit Upon overtaking the build ingmovers the pursuers commanded a halt which answered by a volley of shots from the men in the building The Boston men then fired and a fierce battle raged which ended in the Springfield party being driven from the building Reduced the Building to Ashes Coal oil was then procured and the floors of the building saturated The building was then set on fire and con sumed Great excitement prevails but owing to tho remoteness of the scene news is hard to obtain Parties arrived here Wednesday nighb from Springfield and departed hurriedly after buying all the

destroyed The men who attempted to apply the torch were shot in their tracks The probabilities are that the battle will be resumed by an invasion into Springfield This the Spring field people will
