Death of the Constable. Yesterday morning the last episode of the Garvanza tragedy took place, in the death of the constable, Anton Harnischfeger. He received the bullet from Sprague's pistol about 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon, and he lived about sixty hours. The wound was just one inch above his eye, and, from the first, death was inevitable. The Coroner held an inquest yesterday morning, and the jury brought in a verdict to the effect that death resulted from a gunshot wound in the head, inflicted with a revolver in the hands of B. F. Sprague. Testimony was given on the circumstances of the shooting by W. F. D. Jones, P. E. King and A. F. Wagner, all of whom were in the party that went to arrest Sprague.
