Frankfort, Ky., Jan, Ifl.-A shock
ing tragedy, in which the lives of three
prominent men were sacrificed and that
of a fourth hangs by a slender thread,
while two others miraculously escaped
with painful injuiles, occurred here at
1 o'clock today. The Drincinals in the
tragedy were ex-Congresman David G.
Colson, of Middlesboro, and Lieutenant
Kthelbert 8cott, of Somerset.
Hcott wai shot six times by Colson,
and almost instantly killed. Luther W.
Demaree, assistant postmaster at SUelby
ville, an innocent bystander, was shot
three times and died instantly. Charles
; Julian, another bystander, waa shot and
died half an hour Iatr. Captain B. B.
Golden, of Barbodrsville, commonwealth
attorney of the 27th judicial district, was
shot in the back and is not expected to
survive tho night. Colonel Colson him
self was shot twice in the arm. Harry
McEwing, of Louisville, was shot in the
loot, and W.O. Ridpath, of Chicago,
sustained a broken leg by the lifeless
form of Scott falling against him as it
rolled dow n the stairway.
The tragedy is one of the most sensa
tional in the history of the "dark and
bloody ground." The killing occurred
in the lobby of the Capitol hotel, the
principal hostelery of the state capital,
the room being well filled at the time
with politicians and others, who are
here attending the contests for state
offices before the legislature. Colonel
Colson is in jail tonight, charged with
murder, but he claims self-defense.
Storlea or the A flair.
The witnesses to the affair were taken
so much by surprise when the shooting
began that most of them were almost
panic stricken, and there are many con
flicting stories as to how the fight com
menced. Colonel Colson and a party of
friends, among whom was Demaree,
were sitting in the lobby, engaged in
conversation as Scott . and Captain
Golden came up the stairs from the bar
room walking in the direction ot Colson,
The latter, it is said, half rising from his
chair, fired at Scott, who instantly re
turned the fire. The shooting then be
oame general, and bystanders are at
variance as to the number engaged in it.
Demaree was standing slightly in front
of Colson, and young Scott Is said to
have crouched behind him to ward off
bullets from Colaon's revolver. In an
Instant Demaree fell dead, pierced by
three bullets. Captain Golden, who ac
companied Scott reeled to one side, fall
ing into the arms of ex Governor James
E, MacCreary, exclaiming, "I am shot."
The smoke in the locality of the anta
gonists became dense, but Colson con
tinued to press Scott, who retreated
backward, shooting as be moved. Col
son emptied the chambers of a 32-cali-ber
revolver and quickly brought a 44 in
to action. Scott, by this time bad been
shot several times, and as he staggered
back and fell down the stairway, Colson,
who was within n few feet of him, con
tinued the fire until the form of Scott
rolled over and showed life extinct,
The battle was terrific.and bullets fairly
rained through the lobby of the hotel,
several of which went wild piercing
window glass or embedding themselves
and Golden was captain of a company
in Colaon's regiment, and the trouble
w hich led to the tragedy today began
then. A feud sprang op between Col
son and Scott while the troops were in
camp at Anniston, Ala., and in this, it
is said by Colaon's friends, Captain
Golden was a warm partisan of Scott.
The trouble between them at that time
culminated In a meeting between them
in a restaurant, which resulted in Colson
being shot by Scott.
The regiment was shortly afterwards
mustered out of the service aa a result of
the fued between the officers, and the
serous charges and counter-charges
w hich they had made at Washington
against each other as officers. Since
then the men had not met until today,
and it was generally believed that blocd
would be epilled should they meet, as
both were nn erstood to be look ng for
Colonel Colson remained at the resi
dence of Chief Williams while the sur
geons dressed his shattered arm, and he
was not taken to jail until 5 o'clock. He
begged to be allowed bail. The grand
jury is in session, and an indictment
will probably be returned against him

He is in a highly nervous state, and ap

Wasiiinoton, Jan. 10. The senate to
day ratified the Sainoan treaty without
division. The ratification occurred in
the executive session, after two hours of
debate, which was participated in by a
number of senators. Davis, Foraker and
Sooner advocated and Bacon, Money
and Tillman opposed ratification.
Bacon made the leading speech In op
position. He based his objection upon
the general ground that It is contrary to
the apirit of our institutions to attempt
to govern any people in opposition to
their wishes. Bacon said the friends of
the trerty supported it upon two grounds,
that it simply divides authority here
tofore exercised jointly, and that the
Samoan people, being "only savages,"
there ia no reason why they should not
be despoiled of their country. He con
tended that it is not true that the old ar
rangement is simply to be continued
under a division of authority, and as
aer ed that the declaration tbat the
Samoan people are savages is untenable.
In conclusion, Bacon said he is willing
tbat the United States shoold acquire
the island of Tutila with its Pango Pango
harbor if tbat could be done in the
proper manner and without violating all
ot our principles in securing control of it.
Money and Tillman spoke on practically
The friends of the treaty repudiated the)
assertion that the old treaty provisions
were annulled. They asserted that this
country, by the new arrangement, re
tains all the old advantages and avoids
the complications liable to grow out of
the triparite agreement. They urged
(hat the opportunity should not be lost
both to get out of an awkard predica
ment and to control in our own right tbs
