A Chapter of Crimes, Accidents
Special to the Galveston News.
Hearne, Dec. 26.—A merry ,
Christmas, with a few free fights,
but nothing serious occurred in the
corporate limits yesterday. Two
families in the Brazos bottom by the
name of Nixon and Hinson had a
dinner spread with the expectation
of a Christmas holiday, but the men
quarreled as to the best man and a
bloody scene occurred. Three of
the ^lixoui were woinifled, *n*k- re-
ceiving a' pistol shot through the
ankle joint that will probably cause
Skguin, Dec. 26.—The Mayor
suspended the ordinances for the hol-
idays, and the Marshal, being unable
to stand the pressure, resigned.
Austin, Dec. 26.—Christmas was
very quiet, but little drunkenness and
Houston, Dec. 26.—Deputy sher-
iff Cockeral, o£ Fayette county, was
shot in the head with a Spencer rifle
while attempting to arrest a party at
Flatonio yesterday. The wound is
thought not to be serious.
Dallas, Dec. 26.—Business was
suspended yesterday and Christmas
generally observed. The crop of
drunks was planted early, and yield-

A cawing duel took place in the

cut in the side, but not mortally hurt.

Cincinnati, Dec. 27.-T1-A rapid
rise in the river causes some appre
hension in the minds of the river
people for the safety of boats and
cargoes now at the landing. The
water now touches the curbstone at
Giln.ore's landing and at the pres-
ent rate, will probably reach the first
floors of houses in the vicinity of
Broadway and Main streets by morn-
ing. Whaifboats are almost up to
the sidewalks all along the shore.
Freight is being removed from the
boats as rapidly as possible. Dam-
age to boats is apprehended from
the action of the swift current and
from drift-wood, some of the latter
being logs of lartje dimensions, which
are driven about with great force.
Tragic Termination of a Joke.
Chicago, Dec. 2S.—John M.
Wait and M. B. Gould, both promi-
nent and respectable business men,
this afternoon, thinking to play a
practical joke on a colored janitor,
disarranged the contents of Mr.
Wait's room. They then conceal-
ing themselves in a closet and waited
until the jaitor appeared. The lat-
ter becoming excited at the condition
of the room procured a revolver, and
hearing a noise in the closet trieJ to
pull the door open and failing in
that, fired through the door. The
shot passer) through Mr. Gould's
head, and he died shortly after.

THE MAINE MUDDLE.
Congressman Frye Makes a Dec-
laration With the Wish Fath-
er to the Thought.
Augusta, Dec. 27.—At Lewis-
ton, three thousand people attended
an indignation meeting last night.
Ex-Governor Dingley, Congressman
Frye and others addressed the meet-
ing. Frye characterized the action
of the governor and council cs a
palpable and unequivocal steal; "he
met but one democrat in congress
who attempted to defend the action
of rfie t usiorcists; the plot was
hatched a month ago; this republi-
can state will never see Daniel F.
Davis govtrnor ol Maine."
removal of arms.
Boston, Dec. 27.—The following
was received from Bangor at three
o'clock this morning: "Although
the feeling was vety intense, the or-
dinary quiet prevaded on Friday,
and all business proceeded as regu-
larly as usual. The best citizens
express great indignation at the
moving ot the arms through the
streets on Christmas, but not the
slightest tendency of disorder was
manifested. News of the clandestine
removal ol rifles of the. old town
company from the armory by the
Fusionists, caused much comment
and comparison with the lack of any
proposition by the republicans here
to disturb the munitions at the arse-
nal or armory. Lieutenant-Colonel
Daniel White, of this city, who suc-
ceeds to tfie command of the state
militia, by the resignation of Colonel
Mattock, has issued a circular to the
different companies expressing the
hope that all present troubles will be
peacefully settled and asking reports
of membership, arms, etc.
Petitions signed by several leading
citizens, including a number of the
most prominent democrats of the
city, will be forwarded to the gov-
ernor urging the propriety of com-
plying with the proposition of Mr.
Morrill for referring thedifference of
questions involved in counting the
returns to the supreme court.
governor garcei.on's letter.
Boston, Mass., Dec. 27.—A spe-
cial from Augusta, Maine, to the
Herald, says bitter feeling and the
chance for trouble seems to increase
rather than disminish. The Gover-
nor's letter to ex-Senator Morrill
does not mean so much as at first
sight it may appear to. It refers
to points that have not already been
adjudicated upon, but it is under-
stood that he believes these points
are extremely few, and he has the
decision of the court to back nearly
every case. This leaves hope for a
peaceful settlement through the
Morrill plan, decidedly a faint one,
though the attempt was creditable.
It looks now as if nothing can pre-
vent trouble on the assemblage of the
legislature, but rather a back down
on the part of the fusionists, and how
much chance there is ot this one
man can judge as well as another.
Men who do not encourage violence
openly do not hesitate to say they
fear, expect it. Congressman Frye's
speech last night was not reassuring,
and Congressman Reed thinks blood
will be M.od before it is over. The
cxcitement in the country towns and
villages glows more rapidly than in
the cities. The meetings of both
paities to-night will be numerous.

Last Thursday the funeral of Frederick
N. Clute took place at Herkimer, N. Y.
He was the oldest railroad man of contin-
uous aervice in the country. Mr. Clute, at
the time of his death was eighty years of
age, and had been in active railroad ser-
vice forty eight years. The sad part of it
is that in all those years he had escaped
injury from accident to be killed at last
by *n express train Monday a week ago.
The deceased was a great favorite on the
New York Central, and the company
maintained him without regard to the
work he could do.

ents on Christmas day, one of which was

Edmunds, convicted of the murder
of Julia Osebrook and her child, was
yesterday sentenced to be hanged at
Ozark, Ark., February 27th. Ed-
munds' crime was committed ii,
187S. A year before this he located
in Washington county, coming there
with Miss Osebrook, from Kentucky.
He left Washington county with her
and her child, to go to Johnson coun-
ty, but never arrived and Edmunds
subsequently turned up at his Ken-
tucky home and said his companion
had died at Popular Bluff, Mo. Some
months later human bones were found
on the edge of the Arkansas river,
near Spadra landing, together with
the clothes of the missing woman
and child. One ot the skeletons
was identified as that of Miss Ose«
brook by means of a peculiar tooth.
