A tuesday night and yesterday morning was the time and the Little town of Sheldon was the scene of a fight which at first promised a sensation of no mean dimensions. The trouble originated As trouble sometimes does in a big drunk. Alonzo Sexton and George Mcdowell got on a tear in the course of which they became involved in an argument touching property rights to some cider. Blows followed the disagreement and Mcdowell was severely licked. He swore vengeance. Yesterday morning he got a revolver and started out to look for Sexton. He met him near the railway in company with his brother Charles. Mcdowell stated his immediate intention of killing the elder Sexton. The brother of the one marked for Slaughter interfered and Mcdowell turned the gun upon him. In the meantime Alonzo armed himself with a big cinder which he hurled full in his opponent s face. He then knocked him Down took the gun Fromi him and kicked him pretty severely. There is no danger of his death As stated in an afternoon paper however. Yesterday William h. Sexton came to this City and filed complaint in Justice France s court charging assault against Mcdowell. There were two complaints one for each of his sons.

Oli May Bett ten. His recall to Power will be at an Early Day. Washington april 5.�?the Friendship which the Empress dowager of China entertains for i Hung Chang May result in his being recalled to Power at an Early Day. There have been reports that this move was actually under Way but nothing official has been received Here to Bear this out. The main obstacle to his recall it is said is the difference Between Russia and great Britain As to the preponderance of Power in China. In the Sharp diplomatic struggle going on Between the two Powers Russia has relied upon the Good offices of i Hung Chang while great Britain has had cause to resent some of the activities of Earl i in behalf of Russia. This feeling in British official circles was the main cause for the enforced retirement of i. Since then however the British sentiment against him has become less acute and it is understood that if the dowager Empress sees fit to recall him to Power there is not Likely to be the same opposition As great Britain would have interposed some time ago. In i Hung Chang it is said China would have the services of. The first statesman of the Orient for the crisis through which she is passing and that her helplessness in the diplomacy of the last two years would be thus overcome. L. O.
