FORT SMITH, ARK,
Hanged for Murder—Details of the
[Special Telegram to The News.1
Fort Smith, April 13.— Robert Massey was exej
cuted here this morning for the murder of Edwin
P. Clark, in Chickasaw Nation, December 4, 1882.
The hanging was private, and was witnessed only
by thirty or forty persons. Massey met ihis fate
calmly, and when the trap wa| sprung death
speedily ensuea. Both Massey and victim were
well connected, their relatives living in Texas and
HISTORY OK THE CRIME.
In the month of November, 1881, a man by the
name of Edwin P. Clarke started to tramp from
Dakota to Texas. After traveling for a few days
by himself another by the name of Robert Massey
fell into his company, and. as he said, liked the
looks of Clafke and made known his wish to travel
with him, as he was bound for the same destina-
tion. No objection was made by Clarke, and they
trudged along agreeably I together—Massey mean-
while probing Clarke on the question of how much
money he had. Finding him persistent in his
questions on this subject, Clarke began to suspect
his companion's intentions toward him, which
made him careful in nis answers. In an unguarded
moment he said he had money enough
to take him to Texas and have some left. Then
Massey formed the determination to rob him if he
had to kill him to do so. Their mode of traveling
required but little outlay of money,as bread, cheese
and such food was what they used, and if no
friendly roof offered a hospitable shelter, under
the spreading branches of a tree, on Mother Earth,
they stretched their weary limbs to find a welcome
and much needed rest. Thus they traveled and on
their route entered the Chickasaw Nation, Indian
Territory, aud went into camp near Clayton1:
ranch on the evening of December 3, 1881, quite
near the road they were traveling on. and as the
citizens about there passed and repassed the men
were seen by several before d^rk set In. The op-
portunity Massey hart been seesing he thought had
come and he would embrace it; so, while his com-
panion slept, Massey brained him with a club! To
rob him was a brief job; and he was poorly paid,
for only a sum of $3 or $4 was all he realized by
his foul murder. In his search for his victim's
money he turned his pockets inside out. and so left
them. After the robbery he started to put dis
tance between him and that dead body
lying near the roadsice. before daylight
would reveal it to him in all its horror,
and hastening on with this hope, but still he could
see it as he saw it writhing under the terrible blows
he dealt it. as exhibited by the fitful blaze of the
camp fire, and this picture would not disappear,
no matter however fast he went. The early
l>asser-by of their camp next morning beheld a
i'earful sight, the head of the murdered man lying
in a pool of clotted blood, while the slflill was an
indescribable mass of blood and brains. This dis-
covery soon became known, and as the two men
hail been seen in camp the evening before, the
murderer was readily surmised. Pursuit was at
once made by mounted men, and ere Ions he was
captured, aud a preliminary examination revealed

San Antonio, April 13,—Last night at 9 o'clock,
on Government hill, Fritz Ruhe, a German musi
cian, blew his brains out with a 32-caliber derringer
and his remains were found later by some boys in
the chapparal off the road, whither he had repaired
for the purpose of perpetrating the act of taking
his life. He made his will a week ago and said
yesterday to a friend, who told Ruhe he was not
looking well: •*It does not matter; it will all be
over in a day or two." He was in bad health and
had no hope of recovery, which is assigned as the
cause of his rash act. A jury and justice held an
inquest, which resulted in returning the following
verdict: That the deceased came to his death as
a result of a gun-shot wound by a pistol held and
discharged by his own hand.
The district judge announced to-day, when the
gamblup; cases were called,-that if any were sub-
mitted to him on a plea of guilty, without the in-
tervention of a jury, he would inflict the highest
penalty, lieuce the two parties who were arraigned
called for a jury, which in the case of Broadus in-
flicted a $50, and in the case of Miller a $150 fine.
Both parties convicted are negroes, and theirs
were the first cases tried from among the recently
Indicted gamblers. In this court, Frederick Kront

was taken in charge by Judge Mason, who will
send hiiu home.

A Steamship Fire—Libel Suit Decided
[Special Telegram to The News.l
New Orleans, April 13.—At 7 o'clock to-night
fire was discovered in one of the compartments of
the splendid new steamer Dupuy de Lorne, of the
French Commercial line, taking on a cargo at the
head of St. Andrew street. The compartment was
stored with cotton and contained about sixty bales.
As soon as the fire made its presence known the
compartment was flooded. The fire department
turned out, but the officers of the steamer refused
to let the firemen go on board, and announced that
the crew could manage it. Shortly afterward it
was stated that the fire was out. The amount of
damage can not be learned to-night. It is said to
be confined to the sixty bales of cotton, and some
injury to the remainder of the cargo from water.

they made a bold break for liberty, some boys

has been for several years connected with the In

his departure from Palestine is very much regret-
The fire department, in conjunction with the fire

very agreeable time. Invitations have been ten-"

The continued illness of Judge Reagan, at Wash-

the stump, notwithstanding that even at that time
he was suffering severely, and his labors in 1 he

his home to rest, recuperate and get back to his
old-timed good health.
Exciting Chase of Horse-thieves—De-
scription of the Criminals.
[Special Telegram to The News.]
Bellville, April 13.—J. L. Townsend, sheriff of
Colorado county, is here looking out for a couple
of horse-thieves, and apparently desperate char-
acters. Sheriff Townsend says that while on the
e^t-bouud train of the Sunset road this morning,
at about 7 o'clock, his suspicions were aroused
against two men who had gotten on at a way-sta-
tion, and he commenced making some inquiries,
which alarmed the parties, who both, while in Col-
orado county, jumped from the train while going
at full speed. The train was stopped, and the
sheriff gave pursuit, and soon came up with them
iu a field, where the parties pursued took a bay
horse and a gray inare from parties who were
plowing. Sheriff Townsend saw what was up,
aud tried to get one of the horses, but
one of the thieves opened fire upon him with a six-
shooter, while, the other thief secured the horse.
Tiie sheriff lired five shots in return without effect.
The officer received one shot through his coat.
These thieves are both dark-skinned, and Mr. Tow n-
send took them fcr Mexicans, but the one he spoke
to answered in good English. Weight of each
about ]IX) pounds. One has a full black beard
about one inch long, and has been wounded be-
tween two first fingers of one hand; the other has
no beard, but a small scar on the chin. Sheriff
Townsend lost th»dr track after a pursuit of lour
miles; but wants the hue and cry raised, and hopes
for their early capture by notice given through
^ UCC1. .U»™, „~vcu. Dpon the conclusion of Kennedy s testimony the
supposed to have been robbed before he came to defense smnouneed the> would call no other wit
Dr. Webb, Q. C., leading counsel for the prisoner,
said he begged to submit a respectful protest
against any evidence being allowed in this ease
which woiild bear upon the existence of a con-
spiracy prior to May 3d, even though evidence
were excluded by that means which would thro\v
light upon a plot existing before that date
to murder Mr. Burke. The only exoeptiou
to this principle would be, that evidence which
concerned the words and acts of the prisoner
might, with propriety and according to the rules
of evidence, be admitted in support of a position.
Dr. Webb cited various authorities, running from
tlie time of Edward I down. He said the prisoners
were first arraigned before tiiis tribunal on a
charge of conspiracy. This was followed up by
the more serious charge of murder. I coutend such
a combination of charges is unprecedented in the
history of criminal cases.
The court reminded Dr. Webb that the present
indictment was not for conspiracy and murder,
but a single indictment for murder.
Dr. Webb, continuing, said: Indictment for con-
spiracy to murder, your honor, may only be based
upon evidence going to show there was a design to
murder some definite person, and the law regulat-
ing the evidence of aiders and abettors in case of
conspiracy could not be made to apply in the pre-
Mr. Sullivan, for the defense, in his argument
supported these views.

THE WHEAT CROP.
Important Statements from the North'
Detroit, April 13.—For April the secretary of
state lias received official returns from 6G8 town-
ships in the southern frontier counties, where 800
per cent, of the wheat crop is grown. Fifteen per
cent, of the acreage is reported killed. Of the re-
mainder, 17 per cent, is below the condition one
vear ago. when wheat was in fine condition, hav-
iug been injured little during the prec«ding*wiuter.
The ice which so generally covered the fields in the
southern part of the State, March 1, and from the
3d to the 5th, followed on the 6th by snow, melted
away on the 10th. On the melting of the snow the
wheat fields were slightly green, which shows the
roots $1 ive.
The figures above given are unquestionably the
correspondent's judgment as to the present condi-
tion of wheat, but it is obvious no very satisfac-
tory estimate can be had until the plant com-
mences to grow. The total number of bushels of
wheat reported marketed in the eight months,
August to March 10, is 1,741,000. Estimated amount
held for market by farmers 3,000,000 bushels.
The condition of clover is 99 per cent, of the con-
dition one year ago. , „
Horses, cattle, swine and shtep are in a thrifty
Apples promise 93 per cent, and peaches 67 per
cent, of an average crop.

Coal for Bffoxican ISining'-—Prospects
[Special Telegram to The News.]
Laredo, April 13.—Mr. GuTord, who has been en-
gaged for several years in mining operations in
Mexico, along the Mexican National railway, be-
tween Laredo and Monterey, visited the coal mines
above Loredo. yesterday, for the purpose of de-
termining whether the coal obtained there was of
the proper qualify to smelt the sUver ores found iu
this particular portion of Mexico. He returned to-
dav highly encouraged with what ho had sfen. and
declares that the lower seafu of coal, but recently
opened, ami now being worked, is of the very
qualit> necessary to be used .irt the smclt-
ing-works, and of a quality sufficient to
work up all thu ore in Northern Mexico. This
solves the problem of the success of American en-
terprise in Mexicau silver mines. Governor Hunt,
with his usual sagacity aud enteroris-, offered
coal at special rates, providing the smelling works
were established in Laredo, at same time donating
sufficient.ground to build them ou. The only diffi-
culty in the way now of securing these works at
Laredo is the customs duties of the United States

Mexico of having the leud product shippmi there

ply showed Kavanagh received his instructions as
to driving and waiting from Brady.
Mr. Adams, for the defense, declared there was
£, change in the Kavanagh evidence yesterday.
His sudden discovery that it was Smith and not
Delauey. whom he drove to the scene of the mur-
der witn Carey was, as any oue could clearly see,
a story concocted between him (Kavanagh) and
Carey. There were other discrepancies between
the evideuce given by the informers and that of
other witnesses by whom the crown sought to back
up their perjuries, with oue solitary exception.
No witness for the crown had ever set eyes on
Brady before the 6th of Mvy, yet they
now claimed with one aecord they were able
to recegnize him as the man whom tnev saw in Phoe-
nix park that day. If the jury believed these wit-
nesses to be mistaken, then the case rested solely
ou. suspicious evidence given by informerers of
doubtful character, and the unreliability of their
evidence was too clear to bo commented on. If
the jury would set the evidence of the innocent
girl (Meagher) ag-aiiist that of the infamous Carey
—liar and hypocrite: yes, liar and hypocrite and
murderer, too, by profession, as well as practice—
they would undoubtedly declare in accord with the
facts and probabilities and evidence that Brady
was not guilty.
The court here said the points raised by Dr.
Webb against the introduction of evidence could
not be sustained.
Mr. Adams, closing for defendant, said: Heaven
forbid I should be arraigned before the tribunal of
public opinion as defendant (Brady) has been in
advance of a regular trial. His case has been
prejudiced; his guilt has been presumed in a man-
ner the most scandalous on record. Let not the
jury be led away aud prevented from
doing justice, because crime is awful in its nature:
but let them consider solely the question whether
Brady is guilty. Let them bear in mind the chief
evidence against him comes from persons who
spoke to save their own necks. Such evidence
must ever be regarded with great suspicion. He
went on to say the principals in the conspiracy
had tied to the United States and France before
Carey and Kavanagh had given their testimony in
the Kilmainham examination.
Mr. Naish, for the crown, in reply, said the cir-
cumstances of the crime are not doubted. It was
equally conceded it was the fruit of conspiracy
and not a matter of personal revenge. For this
reason the crown had been able to adduce evi-
dence of the existence of a conspiracy. The ac-
count of the organization, its objects and plans,
as given by Farrell, were such as could never be
concocted by the most sKillful lawyer. Counsel
then traced the connecting links in the evi-
dence. It had been shown that Brady was
absent from his work on ithe 5th and 6th of May.
The book of the time keeper established this fact.
It is also proved he made inquiry for Burke on the
5th of May. This appeared from the undisputed
evidence of the lodge^keeper's wife. The fact that
Kavanagh amended his evidence did not discredit
that witness, but proved his veracity and fortified
his previous statements. If Carey and Kavanagh
had been engaged in concocting evi-
dence they would both have sworn
to the same story in minor as well as major de-
tails. Mr. Naish took up the evidence of various
witnesses who swore to having seen Brady in the
Phoenix park; dissected it carefully, and main-
tained it furnished the strongest possible proof
that Brady was there. He held there was an utter
failure on the part of the defense to establish an
alibi for Brady. The evidence of Little was so
entirely at variance with the actual facts it stood
This closed the speeches, and Judge O'Brien be-
gan the charge. Commenting on the evidence ad-
duced by the defense to prove an alibi, he said
there was nothing, as tar as could be discovered,
to fix the particular evening of the 6th of May in
the mind of Miss Meagher. The evideuce tending
to prove an alibi was frequently resorted to
vented especially by women when its prodgpmction
would assist their frieudfe. Reviewing L^wrlefly the
evidence of Kennedy and LittjjPe he dwelt
upon the evident desire of $j£*he latter to
make the time at which he saw R^radv fit in as be
ir.g before 9 p. m. The testimo^uy of this witness
was open to the same comii®eat ns was that of
other witnesses for the jgF*efense, namely, he was
declaring to have occuu^d one day what did actu
ally happen another "essing on to the evi-

great enterprise is aided and encour»ge<T.
By the act organizing the judicial districts »ne dis-
position of business in the courts will be greatly
facilitated. The act to facilitate the collection of
claims from the general government on account
of moneys expended in frontier defense will ena-
ble Texas to reclaim money she should have had
long ago. The act to provide for the settlement
of claims of school teachers is an act of justtoe
that has long been delayed. The act to provide
for a reformatory institution is one in
the interest of humanity and public morals.
Besides these there are many others of
minor importance, amounting in all to
about 150 bills that have become laws. Fault-
finders there will be, but after mature considera-
tion, it will be found that you have redeemed your
pledges to the people, and that Texas will con-
tinue to prosper and grow under the influence of
your work. While differences have arisen and
sharp debate has ensued, it is my firm conviction
that all have labored for what was believed to be
the best interest for the general good. You have
been patient under difficulties. The absurdity of
requiring the people's representatives to stay at
the capital and serve the public at $2 per day was
never more fully demonstrated. I tender to you,
in the name of the people, their thanks, and trust
that on reaching your respective homes, you may
find your families in good health, and that, by in-
dustry and economy, you may soon repair the
waste places consequent on your stay at the cap-
ital in the interest of the public. John Ireland.

by ixiui>sel Adams that persons present in the
park as principals were now all safe in France or

The evidence went to show those men who were
in the park, with the object of murder, were ln-
vineililbs, although soiu persons cognizant of the
plan, and not there, might not have been members
of that brotherhood. In concluding his charge he
asked the jury to dwell on the evidence with that
solemn consideration of its points which was due

as to the guilt of the accused. In making lip their
verdict laey should set aside all prejudice all
weakness, that frequently influences our jud 'meut

iorg away, for after about forly minutes tho, sent
word lh»y ha<l reached an agreement, and'beiug
summoned back to their oenciies, announced
amidst a breathless silence in court, that Joseph'
Braay was guilty of murder.
T»» .indgo finished his charge at 13 minutes aftar

minutes before 4. W han the verdict was ruad a
deep but suppressed murmur went around the
court room and Brady, who, up to this time had
been singularly composed and tree from emotion
turned asuen pale.
Dr. Wsbb started up to make a motion, and after
complete silence had been restored and before the
judge pronounced sentence of death, said, in an im-
pressive voice: I desire to move for an arrest of
judgment. He alleged that under the crimes act
tne jury which heard the case, and which haa just
given in its verdict, was not legally formed; that
the prisoner had not received notice that he was to
be tried before a special jury.
The motion was denied by Judge O'Brien, who
now said to the prisoner: Have you anything to
say why senteuce of death should not now be pro-
nounced upon you?
Brady responded in a loud, clear and firm voice:
I am not guilty of the charge which tlie informers
have sworn on me. These men wanted to swear
away the life\»f any one to save their own.
Sentence was then pronounced that, on the I4th
of May next, Joseph Brad}' shall be hanged.
After sentence, Brady, who had recovered his
composiu-e, rose in his seat and, with solemn ve-
hemence. protested his Innocence of the crime
After making the last disclaimer he was hurried
from the court-room by the officers.
In the street the announcement of the
verdict had been received with marks of
the utmost disfavor and condemnation. Great
