Tracks Between Mill and main streets. A woman who resides near wad annoyed and Takt Perry Mackin to make them go away. Perry went out and spoke to the Young Fellows but they Only Laught him to scorn. He then it up town and later when the gang discovered marshal Beamer stalking them they went to the Wabash Wagon Bridge. This practically Stop their Orgie but they conceived a grudge at Mackin and t he evidence indicted that there was an understanding among them that Perry was to get his Quot As soon As they could 1 Ocate him. About 6 00 o clock Gil Bert Mclaughlin and John Berger ran across Mackin and John Dill near Weinman s Saloon. Mclaughlin a Fackt Mackin and the latter thinking that he was being attack by the whole gang whip out a pocket knife and stabbed Mclaughlin three times cutting him twice on the 1 Eft hand and once in the Side very near his heart.
