A GERMAN FARMER ASSASSINATED
BY A NEGRO FIELD HAND.
An Enraged Husband and rather on tho
Warpath — The Cronin Trial — An
Imitator of Mrs. Hamilton—
Kaco War iu Illinois*
Breniiam, Tex., Sept. 16.—On Saturday at
8 p. in. Max Brenner, a young German
farmer living two miles from Greenville,
was waylaid and murdered within a mile of
his home by a negro who had been working
for him. Tho facts are about as follows:
Brenner went to Burton, a distance of four
miles, in the morning with a load of seed
cotton, which ho had ginned and then sold
and started home with tho proceeds, some-
thing over 150. He had gone about three
miles when he was fired upon by the assas-
sin. Three balls from a Winchester rifle
pierced his body, one of them passing direct-
ly through the heart. He tumblad off the
wagon into the road His horses took
fright and ran home. The return of the
empty wagon alarmed tho neighbors and
upon finding blood upon the seat and sides
of the wagon thoy guessed the dreadful
truth, and started out to look for tho corpse
and the murderer. At 3 o'clock Sunday
morning they found Brenuan's dead body
by the fence, where it bad been dragged, the
pockets turned inside out and the money
A negro man who went by tho name of
Robert Green and several aliases, had
been picking cotton for Brennan, and on
Saturday afternoon he left the field and the
cotton ho had been picking during the day,
and did not havo tho cotton weighed, nor
did ho go home to supper, lie did not call
for $3 which the murdered man owed and
was to pay him on bis return from Burton.
Tracks were found from tho cotton field
across the pasture aud a piece of plowed
ground near the lane where the fiend had
placed himself to commit the deed. The
negro had previously told some of his fel-
low hands that he had a gun which would
shoot twelve times. Au empty Winchester
shell was found by tlie searchers yesterday
Late Sunday evening Deputy Sheriff D.
E. Teague arrived at the place, and after
securing a description of the negro started
with a posse in pursuit. It was learned
that he had attended a bail or some sort of
gathering Saturday night, about two miles
from the place of the killing, that he was
gambling and appeared to have plenty of
money. Those who saw him noted that ho
was exceedingly restless, but did not sus-
pect the reason. Tho whole neighborhood
is ai ousod, and it is asserted by many that
if tho assassin is found Judge Lynch will
take jurisdiction of his case.
The murdered man was a sober, industri-
ous young farmer, very popular among his
neighbors. He leaves a wife and a tlireo
days' old baby, besides a brother, one sister
and his mother. It has been only a few
days since his mollier aud sister arrived
from Germany on money he sent them.
A FATHER'S VENGEANCE
He Smashes a Lascivious Mexican Over tho
Head with an Ax.
Paris, Tex., Sept. 16.--There has just
readied here tho particulars of a brutal
affair which transpired six miles north of
Maxoy and seventeeu miles from Paris, in
this county, on last Saturday night. A
Mexican, while asleop, was knocked in the
head with an ax by his employer, who is a
farmer and lias a wife and two daughters.
The oldest daughter is about 14. The Mexi
cau lias been employed by him as a farm
hand for sometime aud has been living in
tho family. The farmer has recently been
suspecting that the Mexican had been
guilty of illicit intercourse with his wife,
but was on Saturday evening for the first
time informed by au eye-witaess that the
Mexican had that morning boea guilty of
the same crime with his daughter.
The injured man waited until the unsus-
pecting Mexican was asleep, and about 9
o'clock that night got an ax and lut him
three times on the head. The Mexican's
left eye was knocked out of tho sockot and
n piece of tho skull was broken and fell out.
Under Sheriff Gunn was notified aud went
to the place to-day. The man had received
no medical attention whatever and screw
worms were found to be working in the
wound. The sheriff had him brought to
Paris to-day for medical treatment, though
it fs not. thought that he will live. The
farmer fled without his hat as soon as ho
had committed the deed and his where-
abouts aro unknown, though no warrant
has been issued fo- his arrest, as no one has
been sufficiently interested in the victim to
make complaint. The farmer is described
as being an easy going, inoffensive man.

THE CRONIN CASE
Still Dragline Its Weary "Way Through
Chicago, ill., Sept. 16.—Whan the Cronin
trial was resumed this morning Lawyer
Forrest, for tho defense, on behalf of Dan
Couiihlin, challenged a fipecial venire of
jurymen on the ground that tho regular
panel had not yet been exhausted. Ho said
that in the trials of McDonald and Mc-
Garifclo, in the celebrated boodle trial which
resulted in their conviction, every two
weeks they had a regular panel, which was
used up before tho special venire was re-
"We are entitled to have a regular panel
every two weeks," said Mr. Forrest, "and I
After a brief discussion Judge McConnell
said: "So far as Mr. Forrest's suggestions
are concerned I see nothing in them what-
ever. I believe this court is sitting as a
separate court, and is controlled indepen-
dent of all others. A particular judge of
the criminal court has undei taken to find a
jury in this case, and having no panel at
that time he has undertaken to got a jury
by special venire. It is proper for him to
continue to the end with summons by
special venire upon citizens of the county
for jury service. At the same time if the
regular panel was iu I would not hesitate
for a moment to tender thera to you (jeutle-
uien for selection. At tho same time it
would only be pro form i. 1 •_ k, *\ irljout
any doubt, that we have a right to proceed
to the end and get a jury by speoial venire,
but I am so anxious to get a jury that I will
proceed to any end iu order to do so."
State's Attorney—The only question,
quor honor, is whether this special venire
was issued and properly served. If it was,
then their motion should be overruled.
Court—I will overrule the challenge, but
if latsr ou the defense wants that pauel
brought from the other room they can have
Mr. Forrest—Very well, your honor. At
tue same time I wish to save an exception.
Messrs. Donohoe and Foster also formally
made the same motion on behalf of their
clients, O'Sullivan, Kunze and Boggs. It
was ovorruled and the customary exception
taken. The examination of talesmen was
ILLINOIS RACE WAR.
TIlO Suckers Make Stutters Sultry for tho
Latvrexcevillk, 111., Sept. 16.—A race
war between whites and blacks occurred
here Saturday night. A few days ago a St.
Louis negro named Slick came to town and
Saturday quarreled with a white man and
attacked him with a knife. The latter es-
caped after receiving two wounds, ami
Slick dashed down the street, slashing at
every one. Judge Barnes of the county
court ordered the negro to stop. The negro
then attacked the judge, but the latter re-
taliated by knocking him down. Tho negro
was then disarmed and arrested. Moan-
while the blacks hearing of the arrest de-
termined to rescue the prisoner from the
few white men around the judge. There was
a liarj fight in which the negroes were beat-
en back and four of the ringleaders arrest-
ed, The prisoners were taken to the county
jail and the sheriff and his deputies wero
ordered by the judge to guard the buiWing.
Tho blacks quickly organized and nut <e an
attack on the jail. The sheriff was ordered
to fire on t.heiu but refused, and tho negroes
forced their way into the jail and rescued
the prisoner. Judge Barnes organized the
whites and attacked the blacks at the jail.
There was a bloody fight in which pistols,
kn ivos and clubs wore used. Judge Barnes
w»s cut and shot, but his wounds are not
fatal. Dr. Johnson, Ed Limb and three
other white men wero seriously hurt. Two
negroes were shot and half a hundred heads
were broken. Tho whites won aud tho
ringleaders w«re again put in jail and a
heavy guard placed around the building.
The riot has created great excitement.
COULDN'T WORK THE GAME.
A tost Wom.in Unsuccessfully Tries the
Baby Game on Iler Lovers.
Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. 16.—[Special]—
Pretty but wayward Kitty Fox has been
trying to imitate Mrs. Hobert Kay Hamil-
ton but failed, and this afternoon the doad
little baby boy she used in her attempted
deception was buried by the authorities.
Kitty loved a stone driller, Michael Mnl-
roy, and tho two had lived together. Kitty
wanted a marriage ceremony performed
but Mike's favorite reply was au exhibition
of hie .-uVection in which he used his fists. A
farmer : amed Carpenter loved Kitty and
she rotu ned bib affection to such a degree
os to < low him to call on her when Mike
wai ,;vv"y. The fannT, she says, is rich,
H»» v-ant a' to mar. V her, but .»ho refas&i
him because she wauteil to wed .\liko.
Two weeks ago she called on Dr. Jiai ring-
tou and said that, she expected to become a
mother. She told lior neighbors tho same
story. The following Tuesday, after com-
plaining of illness, she went away, return-
ing Sunday with a big, bouncing baby boy.
People who saw the boy said th At it was !!
months old, aud that Kitty wns too lively
for a woman who had been iil. She first
told Mike that lie was tho father of the
child, but Mllroy, instead of marrying her,
disappeared. 'i'hen she telegraphed tho
same story to Farmer Carpenter, but he also
failed t(5 respond. On Friday the baby died
and this evening he was buried. Neitherof
the men was at the funeral. Kitty has
quite a history. She. is tho daughter of re-
spectable peoplo, but has led a fast life, and
onco attompted suicide. She has confessod
her pian to deceive her lovers.

Denver, Col., Sept. 16.—Frank Piue, who
is known all over Europe and tho United
States as one of the smoothest confidence
men in tho business, is at the Windsor
hotel in this city at tho point of death. He
has been reduced to a mere skeleton by an
enlargement of tho spleen which iiinders
the action of the heart ami will cause death
in a short time. Frank Pine is a French-
man and is noted for his gentlemanly ap-
pearance and manners. Une of his most
notorious transactions was the sale about
fivo years ago of a mino iu the I.eadvillo
district, which was worth practically noth-
ing, to London speculators for $30,000 or
¥10,000. The losers sent over to prosecute
liim for swindle, but it was found that ex-
tradition papers could not be obtained on
the only charge that could be brought, ob-
taining money under false pretenses. Pine
lately made Philadelphia his headquarters,
and before he was taken sick was to lie seen
about tho Girard house. He is now reason-

New York, Sept. 15.--The trial of Henry
S. Ives was resumed in tho general sessions
court this morning before Recorder Smyth.
Jre3 was early in his place and showed no
signs of discomfiture because of the recent
developments and publications in the past
few days. After a brief examination of As-
signee Cromwell, who was appointed wlion
the firm of 11. S. Ives & Co. failed on
August 11, 18S7, an important witness for
prosecution, JS. Wilson Woodruff, con-
fidential secretary to Ives and later secre-
tary of tho Cincinnati, Hamilton and Day-
ton railroad, wascalloil to the witness stand.
Ives' face was a study when Woodruff
was called. His face flushed perceptibly
but he made n > other sign. Woodruff is a
young man witii an unprepo3se.-sing face,
lie stnted that he had first become acquaint-
ed with Ives eight years ago, both beingem-
ployed as clerks in an advertising agency.
Woodruff's testimony was very damaging.

DkNISON, Tex., Sept. 10.—About ono
month ago Deputy United States Marshal
Carr with a posse attempted to arrest a
trio of whisky poddlers on Rod river bridge,
about three miles north of Denison. Lewis
Jacksou, ono of the Indians, was killed; an-
other of the gang was arrested the next
morning on the territory side, while one
man ran back towards Texas. The posse
thought that he was shot and that his body
hud fallen through the bridge into the
river. Such was not the case, as he
made his way safely to the Texas
side, and after going up the river a short
distance lie nulled off his shoes, swam
across and then started for his home, 135
miles away. Being barefooted, travel was
slow, but he reached his home on the
Canadian river four days after the shooting.
About a week ago he surrendered to Mar-
shal McCaul, stating that his name was
Geo. Wade, and that be was with Lewis
Jackson the night Jackson was killed. Mc-

tho western part of this county by Mrs.
Hampton, his neice, who literally hacked
his face and head to pieces with a butcher
knife which she had carried for weeks avow-

cries of murder aud reached lilrn only in

Holyoke for the alleged murder of her son
Thomas last June by giving arsenic was be-

of poisoning by the same woman in two

the verdict of the inquest hns not yet been

any degree the amounts raised on the notes
of the firm. The amount of the firm's notes

Minneapolis, Minn., Sept. 16.—J. Frank
Collom was arraigned in Judge Hooker's

forgery. Tho charges of uttering paper
wero not preferred against him. Collom
asked to have until Wednesday to enter his
p!ea. Judge Hooker reduced his bond to
.$33,000. It is thought that there will be no
further indictments. It has been substan-
tially agreed between the parties to have
the trials come off during the latter part of

Washington, Sept. 10.—[Spccial]—It ia
believed uow that ex-Congressman Warner
will take the pension oflice, though he has
not announced his acceptance yet. The
politicians are at a loss to understand why
tho place should be thru3tupon him. Tbey
sav it will be a virtual turning over of the
interior department to Missourians. From
Noble down the department is filled with
representatives ol that state. Smith, dep-
uty commissioner, now acting in Tanner's
place, who rerated himself and thereby
grabbed over &GOOO, is a Missouri an. He is
the assistant attorney-general for the in-
terior, and now to take up another iu tho
person of Warner is a little too much for
the hungry crowd that are yet waiting for
recognition. Tanner's partisans are sayiug
that he only agreed to resign on the prom-
iso of being made recorder of deeds, but
Lige Ilalford denies that any such bargain
was ever made. If Tanner can be put off
till his case gradually fades from the pub-
lic minds he will bo allowed to sink into his
former obscurity. The rccordership is con-
sidered entirely too big a thing for one of
his caliber, and it is a chance whether his
