AUSTIN WEEKLY STATESMAN THURSDAY FEBRUARY 14 1895.
.THE Dti DLY KNIFE
IN THE HANDS OF A MEXICAN AT
M'NEIL KILLS TWO
A Mexican Named Modesta While At-
tempting to Quiet a Fandango is
Assaulted by two Other Mex-
icans Whom He Kills.
Sheriff White yesterday morning while
ai breakfast received a telegram from
McNeil saying two Mexicans had .been
shut and killedjsonie time during Saturday
He took the morning train on the Austin
and Northwestern for the place mention-
ed and shortly after he left Justice Mat
Johnson and Deputy Sheriff Thorp in a
buggy left for the scene of the double mur-
der. THE PARTICULARS.
Deputy Sheriff Thorp returned last
evening from McNeil bringing a Mexi-
can named Modesto who was charged
with the killing of the1 two Mexicans. The
nnrtimilnra nf thft pnitA nrA nhrmt no frA.
: Modesta is the boss of a gang of Mex-
icans at McNeil who are employed by Mr.
A. F. Martin to cut wood. Saturday was
pay day and when Mr. Martin gave Mo-
desta the money to pay the hands off he
told him to request the men not to have
any fandango and blow in their money
as they generally did but keep quiet.
It seems that this kindly advice was not
heeded and the Mexicans went on and
had their frolic. Modesta in compliance
with his orders from Mr. Martin went
over to the scene of festivity and again
requested the men to cease making the
night hideous. Two of th Mexicans named
Pedro and Fernando jumped on to Mo-
desta and attempted to do him up for
meddling in their affairs. He very prompt-
ly swiped out a knife and gave each one
of them a vicious stab. This settled the
matter. They both turned him loose al-
most instantly and turned loose their
: ' old on life likewise. Both of the Mexi-
cans died within a very short time after
they were stabbed. When Justice Mat
Johnson reached the scene he held an in-
quest over the two dead Mexicans and
returned a verdict in accordance with the
above facts. Modesta was brought to the
city last evening and placed in the county
jail for safe keeping.
Lovers of the Sport Are Trying to Get
up a Fight.
xnc sports in the city are trying to ar-
range for a pugilist mill to come off in
Millett's opera house next Thursday
night. They have on the list Micky Finn
and two or three other feather-weight no-
tables and to add to the interest there
will be a bout between two well known
"coons." If everything pnns out well the
affair will come off as stated Thursday

troubled with frequent colds concluded te
try an old remedy in a new way and ac-
cordingly took a tablespoon ful (four times
the usual dose) or (Jhambcrlain s Cough
