TEXAS, A Shootlnc A flair at Bslton. (8PECIAL TO THE PICA TUNE. Bolton. Aug. 12. Lant night Luckiii Farley, representing the house of Kauff - man & Range, Galveston, waa shot by the clerk of the Avenue Hotel, George Rains. They had been drinking during the day, and went to bed on the gallery. Soon alter Rains got up and got hold of Farley's pants, who called Rains to account, account, he having considerable money on hand. This appeared to excite Rains, who went into the office, got his pistol and asked of Farley if he thought he wanted to rob him, to which Farley good naturedly said, "No nothing of the sort." Rains commenced firing, and emptied four shots into him. Farley was not armed. Three shots passed him, two through the breast and one through the leg. One still remains in the hand. He is considered in a critical condition. A special this morning from Galveston brought his brother, and Mrs. Farley came from Waco by special train.
