Judge Blodfett Renderi a Deelnlon In the Marshall Field Cue. CHICAGO, Feb. Blodgett decided case of Marshall Field Company against John M. Clark, collec- tor of customs, involving the validity of the McKinley bill. He said: best disposition the court can make of the matter is to affirm the de- cision of the appraisers at New York and allow the case to go directly to the supreme court. I will tay, however, that the court was much impressed with the chain of reason advanced by the appellant and it might be difficult for the argument to be met by the other side. However, the McKinley bill has become the operating mechanism by which the government collects its duties and an adverse decision in this case might seriously disarrange the existing arrangement of this (service. There should be a finding of faojte that this court found the case of sufficient im- portance- to warrant an appeal to the su- preme court." An appeal will be prayed at once. Mall Bags Stolen. BURLINGTON, Iowa, Feb. mail bags were stolen from a truck in the Union depot yesterday evening. Only one pouch contained letters.

Shot Oiborne, While Was Killed bj a Bullet from W. J. Elllolf. Two Prlsonen Charged With Murder In the First Degree. COLUMBUS, O., Feb. awful tragedy of Monday, in which W. L. Hughes and Al. C. Osborne lost their lives and five men were wounded, is the sole topic of conversation on the streets, in the hotel lobbies and in the saloons. While a tew, who always have an "I told you ao" story after an event of this character, now confidently state that they the newspaper war between The World arid Capital would end in bloodshed, still the prevailing opinion all along has been that the main fight would be made through the respective newspapers. Osborue, however, seemed to have a premonition of his impending fate. Monday morning he was down town, armed and watchful. He was also very nervous, and would start and glance over his shoulder ac any sound. He had heard reports that Bill lUnott was hunting him Sunday morning and laughing nervously said that Bill "knew where to find hiiu if he wanttd him very badly." Atier Jeav ing Butt's saloon and restaurant, wliere took dinner, he walked back to Schroder's. He was so nervous that 'Squire McDonald ad-, vised him to talie something to brace him up. He did so nd stepped from the door. He no; been gone five minutes when the shooting occurred. The United Press yesterday met a young man, J. W. Lincoln, who was an Intimate friend of Al. Osb >rne, a d from him learned that the deceased had momentarily expected death, and had made a final disposition of his posses- sions. On last week he made his will, and hod sponen to tin, young man as to how he wished his remains cared for. "For.' said he, when reproved for his levit--, "I expect trouble with the Klhottfl if we meet, though I cannot say just what kind." He ordered that this young man take his body from the coroner as soon as through with it, and have it placed in charge of Tom Doonan, the by the was Osborne's friend, and until a year ago. foreman on The Capital. He further desired that his body be taken to the home of his sister, Mrs. Mason, and that later they be given interment at Reynoldsbnrg. This conversation between Lincoln and Osborne took place last week. They again met Monday noon near Schraders saloon, jest after Osborne had been yeighed on the scales and measured. .lincoln addressed him as follows: "Al, _ guess we had better put that casket which we had for yon back in its place, or you don't seem to need it." Osborne mmediately answeied: "This is traight goods and no joking. The day s not over, and I may need the coffin >efore night." With that the two jarted. There was a good deal of talk on the street yesterday regarding the course >ursued bv the police in not locking the >wo murderers in cells as soon as ar- Chief Murphy was asked why was not done. Said he: "I did not ock the Elliotts up for two reasons, jtrst, the attorneys, lejjuia.le men at ,he bar, requested that they be taken to ny office so that a consultation might held, and second, I wished the re- xirters to secure all the facts and state- nents thev could about the affair. I lave often done thin and would do it for any body if so requested in a case of ;h.s kind." The police have established beyond a a doubt that Bill Elliott fired the first shot and they think that both the Elli- otts shot Osborne. It is impossible to lee the prisoners without an order from the chief, this being given should any one have important business with the men. The outside and inside doors are locked so as to pi event trouble should a mob organize, as there have been threats of so doing. At 10 o'clock yesterday the coroner, with Drs. Frank Warner, li. F. Wilson and J, F. Baldwin, began a postmortem examination upon the bo .lies of Editor Osliorne and old man Hughes. It was mown tnat the bullet Osborne received In the head was from the revolver used byW. J. Elliott, and the one through iiis lungs fiom the .revolver of his brother Patrick. It was also shown that the bullet which killed Mr. Hughes was from W. J. Elliott's revolver. Clarence Reed, a young man living near Elliott's home at Arlington, says that Elliott was practicing with his pistol Monday moining He saw him, he says, shooting at a target. At the conclusion of the practice he got into his buggy and drove toward the city. Ed. Osboine has filed an affidavit against W. J. and P. J. Elliott, charg- ing them jointly with murder in the first degree in the killing of A. C. Osborne. The affiant is the piesent mayor of Reynoldsburg and a brother of the deceased. He says he proposes to push the prosecution. In addition to Mr. Huling an array of distinguished and able lawyers will be employed to prosecute the case. A large number of witnesses have been examined by Coroner Eagan in the inquest on the bodies of the two murdered men. Nearly all the wit- nesses swear that W. J. Elliott began the fusil ade by firing upon Osborne, who stood with his hands in his pockets less than ten feet away, and that the first shot took effect in Osborne's chin. It was further testified that W. J. Elliott took refuge behind a woman and fired over her shoulder, aud that at this juncture Hughes dropped dead. Oa- borne in the meantime letreated to the hat store followed by Pat, where he re- ceived his death wound in the heart. of the St. LonlK Hi ST. Louis, Feb.

SCOTTSDALE, Pa., Feb. conflict between the etiikers and uon-stiikers at tho coke plants near Dawson was nar- rowly averted yesterday. A crowd of strikers came down to get the men in the Frost Hill, Paull, and liamey plants to stop work. Many of the strikers in liquor and mostpf them were armed. The employes at work at the mines fled precipitately upon the ap- proach of the mob. No actual conflict occurred. At a mass meeting yesterday the TOO coke workers of the Loyalhanna, Monastery and other Latrobe works were ordered to strike. The frost Bill and Paull plants of W. J. Ramey are still running.

III It. Sioux CITY, Iowa, I'eb. Alliance men in Iowa, Minnesot', tne Dakotas and Nebraska will hold a con- ference here, beginning Wednesday next. It ifflee to the e fleet that the penitentiary nvestigation is a failure and is about to be abanoued was premature. The nvestigating committee is just coming nto a paying lead. The only charges hat bave not panned out fully were those against Warden Dyer. The war- den was not the most successful and efficient official the Ohio penitentiary ever had, but he is a great deal better than some of the disappointed Democratic politicians would like to make him out o be. The charges against Warden Dyer seem to have been prompted argely by a desire to shift ty from tbe shoulders of men superior o him in rank, and the attempt prom- sea to be a failure. The committee ias found some very startling evidence as to the granting of paroles. An old convict named Buch waiter, who re- cently received a parole, tells a very startling story. Buchwalter is an ex- soldier and had about 1700 which came to him in the form of a pension. Dyer's spn-iu-law, Thompson, a would-be at- torney, beard about this money and seems to bave made up his mind to possess it. According to Buchwaiter's statement be approached the convict with a proposition to secure his parole Tor a stipulated sum. Prominent at- lorneys had attempted to secure a parole for the man bjuhonorable means, but had failed. Thompson took hold of the case aud strange to say succeeded in getting a parole. Alter secur ng the parole he offered to get the old man a pardon for a certain amount and has been keeping i client closely housed 'or fear he would run nto some one connected with the prison investigation. Buchwalter stajed iu tbe house a few days aud then did run into some one who told be members of ihe committee all about the case. FREIGHT WRECK. rive Oil TaiOu. Watt VnlgM Can Four ASHLAND, Pa..
