Ki-Hre t iller .Murphy Killed a Prised
lu Cold lllood.
Seattle, July 29 lOx-First Assistant
Firo Chief Junius Murphy, about 3:15
o'clock yeHtoreay, while standing in the
Copper Chief saloon, No. 221 Washing
ton Btreet, in tho act of taking a drink
which he had ordered, drow from his
Docket a 38-calibro rovolver and sent a
ballot crashing into the brain of 1'hillip
.1. Dawe, the bartender and part pro
prietor of tho saloon. Dawe died in
stantly. He did not spunk a word, and
fell where he stood back of the liar.
Murphy, with the smoking revolver in
his hand, coolly took a drink from the
bottle of whisky which Dawo had
placed uiion the counter and walked
leisurely out tho front entrance of tho
saloon. As ho passed through the door
he slipped the revolver into his hip
pocket and went down Washington
street to tho Fashion Baloon, six dears
below, George Gordon, an attache of
the Copper Chiof saloon, appears to have
been the only eye witness to the mur
der, and J. K. lleckor, a barber who
stood at the front entrance to the place,
saw Murphy slip tho rovolver into his
pocket as he passed out tho doorway.
Murphy was arrested.
Tho only known reason for tho trouble
is that Murphy wanted Daw e togive him
cocktails free instead of whisky and
Dawe objected to mixing drinks for a
man who did not pay. No conversation
took place at the timo of the shouting
except the simple oulering of a drink by
Murphy. As Dawe Btoopeil over to draw
some water Murphy shot him. Dawe
had boon supplying Murphy with free
drinks for a loug tune past and instead
of straight whisky Murphy wanted Man
"Phil" Dawo, as he was familiarly
called by his associates, was one of the
best known saloon men in the city. He
was an Englishman by birth and about
3ft years of ago. About two months ago
he was married to a Miss l'.orton, whose
father is a niotoruian on one of tiie elec
tric Btreet railways. Dawe was an ex
prize lighter and formerly lived in la
coma. Like his slayer he was not a man of
Few men are better known, particu
larly to the older residents ot the city,
than Jim .Murphy. For six or eight
years he served as first assistant chief
of the tire department, tilling that post
under Chiefs tiardnor Kellogg, Jnsiah
Collins and Mckean. Murphy, a fact
that was lamented by property owners
generally, had charge of the fire depart
ment ou the day of the great tire ol June
1, 1889, when tho entire business portion
of the city was burned. He came par
ticularly into notoriety by reason of this.
Many claim that it was due to his in
ability and recklessness that the fire got
beyond the department's control, result
ing in the destruction oi millions of
dollars' worth of property. He was
drinking when the Ire broke out, and
before it had done half the damage
was irresponsibly drunk. The treat
ment property-owners received at
his hands on that occasion was hardly
less than shaiuelul. Hum-crazed, with
ax in hand, he ran about like a mad
man, and on more than one occasion
threatened to chop men down while try
ing to save their property. As a fitting
climax to all this, and while the very
heart of the business centre of the city
was burning, Murphy dropped every
thing and forced a drayman to go with
bis dray to the house of Emma Starr, a
notorious woman, whom he afterward
married, and carry her furniture away
to a place of safety. H was shortly
after tho fire that he married Emma
Starr, though they had lived together
since 1882. In March last his wife pro
cured a divorce from him and Murphy
has been drinking more or less heavily
since. He is 49 years of age, of Irish
descent and was born in the city of
Philadelphia. He has lived in Seattle
about 15 years. He was for several
years a government scout during the
Indian wars and later a police
oilicer in the town of Astoria, When
not connected with the lira department
in this city Murphy worked as a bar
tend.r. For a number of years he
served as such in Jimmy Smith's old
bijou sit oun on Washington street.
When a young man he learned the iron
molder's trade. He is a member of the
Kcd Men and also the Elks.
Murphy was seen yesterday afternoon
in his cell at the city jail. He positively
denied killing Dane, lie admitted,
however, being in the saloon a minute
before the shooting. When told that
Dawe was dead Murphy expressed re
gret and said that the man had been
his friend. Half an hour after he had
been placed in jail Murphy, at the re
quest of bis friends, was visited by
James Hamilton Jiewis. Colonel Lewis
stated that he had not decided whether
he would take the case or not.

Bay City, Mich., July 20. The terri
ble fire which started yesterday after
noon continued to rage ail night and the
sun rose this morning on a field of ashes
extending over 40 blocks. It is estimated
over 100 buildings, occupied as factories.
stores ann dwellings, are in ruins. The
fire burned a swath six blocks wide from
the river almost to the city limits, a dis
tance oi nine blocks, sweeping every
thing in its path and only stopped when
there was nothing to feed, on, the houses
having become scattering. The loss is
estimated at $1,000,000. A terrific wind
was blowing from southwest when the
Itames started in Miller & Turner's saw
mill, and the burning boards were car
ried 201 feet in the air, and wherever
they dropped they started a new confla
gration. The firemen were utterly unable to
cope with it and were driven quickly
from point to point. The progress of the
fire was through a section largely occu
pied by the homes of laboring men.
They were compelled to abandon every
thing and are now huddled in temporary
quarters without a possession in the
world and with nothing to eat.
Wagons and drays which were hauling
away household goods were overtaken
and burned in the street. The firemen
finally attempted to make a stand sev
eral blocks away but the cyclone of fire
swept down on them and soon was
blazing thirteen blocks from the point
of starting. Here the wind began
to die down and the firemen
finally began to get the mas
tery. The (lire was not under
control till midnight. .Many houses in
the burned section were built upon
ground made from refuse by the mills,
and not only were the buildings con
sumed but sites also. A number oi ar
rests were made o thieves stealing
This morning there were several re
ports ot the loss of life but it is
only positively known that one
unknown woman was burned to death.
Most of the business places
burned had small stocks, ranging from
two hundred to sixteen thousand.
Miller & Co. lost three million feet of
lumber worth sixty thousand dollars.

Jacksonville, Fla., July 20 Nearly
1,000 Cuban residents of this city have
joined a club organized for the purpose
of assisting their countrymen in the
event of a war with Spain. A meeting
held here yesterday was attended by
fully 15,000 Cubans, besides many Span
iards. The speakers were Jose Marti,
the exiled Cuban patriot who is now
living in New York, General Carlos Ko
lotl', Lieutenant-Colonel S. Sanchez and
J. i. Poyn.
Senor Marti explained the object of
the meeting and told in a forcible way
the exact situation in Cuba. His visit
was not for the purpose of arousing feel
ing against Spain, but to organize the
Cubans into clubs that would assist in
the cause of independence with their
money when an opportunity for unity
was presented. The other speakers
added but little to what he said, but all
insisted in having an organization and
being on the alert for emergencies.

Save Her tMiil.l'a Life.
Losu Bhani'ii, N. J., July 25 A
thrilling scene was enacted here last
evening in front of the Star hotel in
which Mrs. Mary Kuhling performed
an act of bravery which saved her child
from a horrible death, although she
may lose her own life. Mrs. Ruhling is
25 and the wife of William Ruhling.
Some time ago she came from her resi
dence in Now York with her two chil
dren, Katie, 3 years, and Edna, 3
months old, to board at the Star hotel.
Tho trains of the New Jersey South
ern railway pass this house. About 7
o'clock last evening Mrs. Ruhling was
seated on tho piazza holding her infant
daugh er lidna in her arms. She was
suddenly startled by hearing screams,
and looking up saw her daughter Kate
on the railroad track in front of an ap
proaching train which was coming from
the West End.
Without hesitating and still holding
her baby in her arms Mrs. Ruhling
rushed lo the rescue af her child. Mrs.
Ruhling dragged little Kate from the
track when tne locomotive was but a few
yards away. Almost the next instant
the ernve mother was struck by the
cowcatcher and thrown on one side of
the track a considerable distance. The
baby was knocked out of her arms and
fell afew ieet from w here Mrs. Ruhling
lay bleeding and unconscious.
The mother and her babe were carried
into the .hotel. Hie physicians after
making an examination of Mrs. Ruh
ling, found that she had received a se
vere gash on the head and that her hip
was diflocate.l. She also received in
ternal injuries. Tne baby was not seri
ously hurt. Mrs. Ruhling was delirious
all day and the physicians are in doubt
as to her recovery.

Washington, D. C, July 22-The
special committee of the House inquir
ing into the Homestead troubles heard
the Pinkertous' side this morning.
Robert Pinkertou presented a statement
covering the history of his agency since
its organization in 1850, stating that
for twenty years they had furnished
men to protect property during
strikes. These men were carefully
selected, and seldom permitted to carry
arms except under public authority.
They never wantonly fired a shot in any
strike. The men were sent to Home
stead only on the assurance that the
sheriff would swear them in as deputies
if necessary. Many of these men were
regular employes, thoroughly tried and
trustworthy, tiie others were vouched for.
They did not go into Pennsyl
vania as an armed force. The arms were
shipped from Chicago and ordered not
to be given the men unless deputized by
the sheriff. As a matter of fact the
boxes were not opened until the strikers
opened fire and it became a matter of
li.e and death. Klein had been killed
and five others wounded before the Pin
kertous returned the fire. Pinkerton
was handicapped in the fight by the
lact that the strikers made a breastwork
by placing women and children in front.
The statement declares the act of the
strikers after the surrender of the watch
men, "a disgrace to savages," yet, be
cause done in the name of American
labor it is upheld by some newspapers
and political demagogues; it declares on
the trials for murder it will be shown
that the Pinkertous' acts were legal.
The statement then reviews the history
of strikes and says it shows that organ
ized labor every where, will murder and
destroy property out of sheer wantonness
and revenge, and it is morally certain
from the threats of the men themselves
that the Homestead strikers would have
done likewise if the company tried to
supply their places. The employment
all over the country by banks and private
people as watchmen was referred to,
then the subscribers to the statement
affirm that counsel assure them that
they have violated no law, federal or
State; that they had a right to employ
and send men to Homestead to act as
watchmen, that if they were attacked
they had a right to kill if absolutely
necessary in self defense; that they
had a right to bear arms on
the premises ot the Carnegie com
pany in order to protect life and
property whether or not they were
deputized by the Bherilf of Allegheny
county ; that he had the right to ship
arms Irom Chicago to the Carnegie
yards at Homestead for the purpose of
arming our men if and after they were
deputized by the sheriff ; that in view
of the attack on the barges our men had
a right to bear arms and defend them
selves, and that nil their acts in firing
in self-defense from the barges after the
attack on them were legally justifiable
under the laws of the United States and
the laws of the State of Pennsylvania.

dangerously ill at his residence, 2027
Spruce street, in this city. Although he
has been suffering for nearly two
mo n t he, his condition has been known
to but a few friends, and even they were
not informed of the dangerous character
of the malady. Mr. Dougherty, in the
early part of June, went to Long Branch,
where he has a residence, with a view
of restoring his health, which at that
point was supposed to be impaired by
the effect of overwork.
His physician, Dr. H. C. Wood, gave
instructions that his patient should take
complete rest for some time. Mr.
Dougherty's restless nature prevented
him Irom following implicitly this ad

Wood immediately went to the Br nch

Lipski, a young Polander, was married
at 8 o'clock to Miss Mary Kobevich.
Among the guests were Michael F'elin
ski and John and Henry Kobevich,
brothers of the bride. All drank freely,
and soon a dispute arose between two of
the men as to which of the wedding
gilts was the most valuable.
They came to blows, and Lipski, who
was just passing through the room, with
his bride by his side, stepped forward to
part the men. Then the row became
general, and knives and revolvers were
used. One of the shots struck the bride
in her side and she fell to the floor,
where she was trampled upon by the
fighters. The neighbors had by this
time summoned the police, who sur
rounded the house and arreted all who
had not in the meantime fled.
Mrs. Lipski and her two brothers
were found to be very seriously
wounded. Lipski was stabbed in many
places, but none of his wounds are con
sidered serious. Many others were cut,
but were carried home by their friends
before the officers came to the scene.
Twenty-seven of the participants were
arrested, several of whom bore ugly

Warrensburu, Mo., July 25 During
the meeting ot the state Teachers'
Association at this place in June there
was an exhibit of a most queer medal,
which is supposed to be an amulet worn
by DeSoto during his exploration of this
part of the country.
It is of pure Bilver and bears an in
scription on both sides, while it also
bears the insignia of the Pope and an
image on one side, also a representation
of Christ on the cross between the two
thieves, while ou the other side of the
medal is a representation of the Last
Supper. The date is very plain in large
bold letters and figures and shows the
amulet was made in 1545, or nearly 350
The amulet is the property of Major
Turner who purchased it of a jeweler in
the southern part of the State, who said
he got it from a negro who had dug it
up on his farm on Turn Back creek. It
was examined by several antiquarians
and all agree that it is genuine and be
lieve that it has been thrown away on
account of its time expiring, as these
amulets were blessed by the Pope for a
certain length dT time and were given to
those who were about to travel.

Italian Laborers Get On a Spree, and
the Inhabitant Flee.
Star City, Ind., July 29 I"ive hun
dred Italian laborers employed in laying
pipes between the gas fields and Chi
cago quit their camp yesterday and
took possession of "this town.
Stones and sticks were thrown
through the windows of houses
and stores and the little community was
completely terrorized. For half a day
they paraded the streets defvintr the
authorities, breaking windows and tear
ing down fences. The two saloons in
the place were broken down and cleared
out, the desperadoes drinking all
the liquor they could find and
rolling the barrels out on the streetB and
demolishing bottles and glasses. Going
to the railroad depot the rioters robbed
the office of what money it contained
and assaulted II. B. Stanton, the
agent, in a horrible manner. Af
ter beating him nearly to death,
they dragged him out upon the
street, stripped him of his clothes and
suspended him by his arms to a tree.
He was rescued almost an hour later in
an exhausted condition and may die.
When night fell the people of the village
aban ioned their homes and fled from the
place to the surrounding towns where
they could get protection. The rioters
are still in control and secured whisky
trout other places, and the scenes
are being re enacted except that
the fighting is among the rioters
as the citizens have not dared to return
to their homes. The sheriff' has endeav
ored to restore order, but the
people are in such fear of the
desperadoes that tnoy reiuse to obey
his summons and he is powerless.
About one fourth of the entire camp is
engaged in rioting and blood has flowed
freely, but it is not known that anyone
has been killed.
