disposition and hla injuries were such
that be could hardly recovor. Investi
gation showed the discharge of the gun

spinal column. He was removed to the
hospital early Sunday but gradually
sank away. No blame Is attached to
anyone for his death. The men all had
orders to not approach nearer than
thirty yards when firing. No pris
oners were allowed to bo taken, and
the officer's place Is always behind the
firing line. It baa opt been learned
who fired tbo fatal shot and no blame
Is attached to any official.
