FIVE MEN INJURED IN FIGHT OVER NEW MAYOR

St. Louis, Mo.---One man was probably fatally cut, two were seriously slashed or shot, and two were badly battered in a battle in front of the Wellston city hall between policemen and sympathizers of Charles J Roberts, who, 24 hours before, was declared mayor of that place, displacing the Reverend Irl R Hicks.
The fight followed an all day celebration of the ousting of Mayor Hicks by Circuit Judge G.H. Wurderman, of Clayton, who decided Roberts had received a majority of votes in the municipal election.
The wounded were taken into the corridor and council chambers of the city hall after the fight.
Outside a crowd of 400 men gathered and threatened further trouble.

The County Paper (Oregon Mo) May 26, 1882

At a variety theater in Kansas City last Sunday evening, one of the main attractions was the exhibition of Bob Ford, the slayer of Jesse James, on the stage.
Handbills were distributed in the afternoon, which stated that the " only one of its species " etc., would positively appear on the stage, but it didn't draw worth a dent.
About halfway through the performance Bob Ford was led out by the manager in circus style, and looked rather sheepish.
He was introduced as " the great and only," and proceeded to remark, " My name is Robert Ford. Tomorrow night I will give the history of my past life from this stage."
When this animal exhibit was over, a few of the ladies hired to sell beer, cheered vociferously and they were alone in their enthusiasm.
