CAUGHT A SLUGGER

One of the officers attempted to arrest a drunk in the vicinity of the Union Depot today and found him a slugger. He brought his man in but not until he had used his club and got his chin badly scraped. The fellow had $7.25 in his pockets.

Poplar bluff, Mo., Apr 15.-- H.R. Adams, William Heck and Riley Henson were killed in a pitched battle at Ten-Mile creek, ten miles west of this city, Friday morning. Circuit Clerk C.M.

AN UGLY AFFAIR

About 4 o'clock Tuesday evening the citizens of Sikeston were disturbed by pistol shots. It seems that Ben Marshall, son of John Marshall Sr., was under the influence of drink and was quarreling with Thomas N. Myers Jr., in front of McCoy's store.
About the first thing that attracted attention was a pistol in the hands of young Marshall, who fired at Myers. Myers clinched, took the pistol from him and fired a shot also. Neither shot took effect.
The only serious damage was done to Marshall, who was severely beaten up by Myers. We understand that the affair is the result of an old grudge.

ARMY CAPTAIN ON TRIAL

San Francisco, Mar. 24.--- The jury disagreed today in the case of H.V. McGinnis of St. Louis, a former army captain who was gassed while serving overseas, on a charge of bringing a stenographer, Miss Esther Botts, 19 years old, to California in violation of the Mann Act.
McGinnis was mentally irresponsible as a result of his experience in France, according to the testimony of his wife. He came to San Francisco last July and was arrested in January.
Mrs. McGinnis stated that she believed he disappeared while mentally unbalanced.

Kansas City Journal December 31, 1897

HE EXPECTS TO BE HANGED

" Dunno whut you call it, but I done it. Guess I better plead not guilty, though."
This was the answer of James Reed when he was before Justice Case yesterday for murdering his mistress, Susie Blakely, on East Twelfth street.
During the preliminary hearing Reed showed the most stupid resignation. He had no counsel, and said he did not want a lawyer. " I expect to go the way my father went," said Reed, sullenly.
He heard the whole testimony without a word or motion, and seemed glad when the case was over. He is now in jail awaiting the action of the grand jury.

John Kuneth, a Polander 34 years old, tramped St. Louis for weeks, he said, to get work as a wood carver and failing to get sufficient work to furnish food and lodging, in a fit of desperation he threw a stone through the window of the Central Police station in order to be arrested and thereby secure food and shelter. He was accommodated with a fine of $100 and commitment to the workhouse.
