A Horrible Murder in a North Carolina
Thelbv, N. C, Jan. 21. Charles
Williamson, 23 years old, shot and killed
his brother, Rastus, aged 20 years, yes
terday. No motive is known. . Charles
Williamson came to Shelby Monday to
arrange for his wedding, which was to
take place yesterday. After making
some purchases and procuring a marriage
license, he left for his father's home,
nine miles from here, where he arrived
in good spirits. After supper he started
to visit his brother-in-law ,Joe Washburn,
or the store where the shooting occured,
When near the store he met Rastus, who
was riding in a dogcart with James
Mauney. Charles was invited to take a
drink with them, which he did, and
then the three went to the store. When
they arrived there Charles caught Rastus,
dragged him out of the cart and hit him
over the head with a bottle. Rastus fell
to the ground, whereupon Charles shot
him in the back just below the shoulder.
Rastus died at 4 o'clock yesterday morn
ing. After the shooting Charles went to
his grandfather's house near by, and told
that some one had killed Rastus. lie
then went home and told his father that
he had killed Rastus and was going
away. This was the last seen of him.
Charles Williamson had a bad record for
drinking and fighting, and it is said he
has been obliged to leave this section
twice to escape prosecution. On his first
trip he went to Texas, and soon after
quarreled with his uncle and cut him
dangerously. On his last trip he was
accompanied by his brother. He re
turned to North Carolina some three
weeks ago. Mauney and Washburn,
who were the only witnesses of the crime
say that no words passed between the
brothers during the assault. The occur
rence has so shocked Mrs. Williamson,
the boy's mother, that her life is feared
THE BRIBERY CHARGES.
A Question of Veracity Between Met
calfe and Clarke.
Olympia, Jan. 22. The committee
appointed to investigate the charge of
bribery made by Representative Metcalf
met to-day and adjourned until tomor
row. As matters stand it is a question
of veracity between Clarke and Metcalfe,
as to wehther the latter received any
money. Clarke, in his testimony, ad
mitted everything that Metcalfe charged,
except the actual payment of the monev.
The Metcalfe occurrence is the outcome
of efforts made by both factions to catch
the other in a trau. Several members
gave the Squire men to understand that
tney were willing to sell out, but the
bquiremen saw through their game.
Thereupon the Sauire men played back
over Metoalf's shoulders, and the result
was the charge against Clarke.
Important to The Dalles.
Salem, Jan. 22. An important mem
orial to congress, introduced by Senator
Raley, was passed by both houses to-day
After reciting the navagibility of the
Columbia river for 1000 miles from its
mouth with the exception of the obstruc
tion at The Dalles and the Cascades, it
urges congress to pass Senator Mitchell's
bill for a boat railway as speedily as
possible, declaring that such railway will
meet with the requirements of commerce
on this river, and will give immense
satisfaction to the people of the state,
who are interested. Representative
Minto, although voting aye for the mem
orial, made a spirited speech, in which
he gave notice to the house that he would
soon introduce a measure calling for a
more expeditious means of removing the
obstructions referred to. He" declared
that the dilatory manner in which the
work of building the canal and locks at
the Cascades was carried on by the en
gineers of the general government was a
shame and an outrage on the people of
O'Shea to McCarthy.
London, Jan. 21. It has become
known that Captain O'Sher lately wrote
Justin McCarthy demanding an apology
for hinting in a speech that a different
color has been given Paraell's conduct
in the divorce case. McCarthy's reply
not, being satisfactory, O'Shea has ad
dressed him another letter referring to
McCarthy as "an ill-constructed dummy,
a straw starting from every seam," and
saying McCarthy possesses two qualifica
tions for his present post meanness
and mendacity. The matter has created
Koeh's-Remedy Gaining In Its Efficacy.
Berlin, Jan. 21. Dr. Guttman, at a
meeting of prominent physicians,
demonstrated upon a subject who died
of advanced tuberculosis, that an ulcer
on the intestines, besides the ulcers on
the lunge, had been nearly healed under
injections of Koch's lymph, a fact that
suggested Kochine tended to cure ulcera
tion of the bowels.
The Silver Pool Investigation.
Washington, Jan. 23. David T. Lit
tler, of Illinois, who was mentioned as
agent of Senator Cameron in purchase
of silver bullion appeared before the sil
ver pool investigating committee to-day,
Littler was asked if he had purchased
silver for Senator Cameron. He replied
"Yes, I bought a small amount of sil
ver for Cameron, pending silver legisla
tion. I don't remember the exact
amount, about one hundred thousand
dollars worth." Did you buy for any
other senator, representative or govern
ment officials? "I did not offer to do
so. Cameron knew I had purchased
some on my own account and when he
met me one day he said, 'I want you to
buy some silver for me?' I think he
opened the subject although I don't re
member about it."
No Trouble Anticipated.
San Francisco, Jan. 21. Regarding
the reception of the news of the king's
death at Honolulu, and the possibility '
of trouble arising therefrom, Consul
General D. A. MacKinley said last night
that he did not anticipate any trouble
"Why should there be?" said Colonel
MacKinley. "The present regent, Princ
ess Lilluokalani is the king's successor,
and the ministry is on a firm and popu
lar, basis. The legislature adjourned
two months ago, and cannot convene
again until called by the queen. No, I
do not anticipate the least trouble aris
ing out of the death of King Kalakaua."

tution of several other suits on the same
account. The circuit court meets the
first Tuesday in February, when the

Ohio Earners Demands.
Galion, O., Jan. 21. At the farmers'

Eighteen delegates were elected to the
national convention with instructions to

forming a third party, and the prospect
for organization on a political basis are
