Klonterman toM a mcst sensational story its follows: About 1 o'clock, bo biiid, ho Started upstairs, to tho rooms occupied by himself and wife, over tho saloon, accompanied by Hunt. IIu- wife ran fro:n hor bed-room crying out that there was a inan in her room. Slavery followed the woman out and attempted to pass tho two men. He was without coat, hat and vest Hunt struck him ond he fell down stairs, Kloster- inan and Hunt then, as they claim, went town and finding Cript Slnttory unconscious immediately took him up and carried him to Ihe police Btation some two blocks away r I A short time after they arrived there an Unknown young man coma in with a gold watch and chain and some money which ha Said he had found in Capt Blattary's vest The Captnin'a Dlnmondn Gone. Bcrgt. Gregory sent immediately to Dr. Henndrlcks, who dressed tho captain's •wounds and pronounced them .very serious.

This property was not on him when he was brought to tho station. Mm. Klnntiiruinn'H Narrative. The sergeant then went to the house of KloBtorunm—and— rpinKtiminrt—Mrsr"KlnRtnf— man.-'—Hhn Bald- Hml elm--retired about 13 o'clock and that about half nn hour later she looked toward the door, which wns ajar, and saw a man '(landing In the hall. She watched him for several minutes and then askeJ who he wns. He started toward her door and she jumped out of bed and ran into tho adjoining room, occupied by her mother. Sho then raised the window and called hor husband, who was In the saloon below, Her husband, she uaye, ran up-stalrs, found the mnn in the room, and struck him twice with his open band.- By this time John Hickoy, Klostermau's barkeeper, had arrived, and helped Klosterman to get Slattery out of tho room. They took him to tbo stairs, and when there she recognized tho voica of Alexander Hunt, saying angrily, 'What are you doing in my friend's room*' Thou a blow was struck and she heard somebody falling clown-stairs. She says aho • does not know Capt. Slattery, nor did she notida any jewelry on his person. Hunt'* Brutal Afmault. Thore 'geouis ; to be no doubt that Hunt, after beating tCapt. Slnttory.-. in a brutal mannorj threw him down-stairs. AH this time the captain had not spoken, according to the statements of his assailants.

But ihis year tho winning club h'as had no such luck. It not only beat the most expert of its opponents, but the "hoodoo" was absent when it played with tho weaker clubs. Another fenlure of this year's playing' is the load the New York and Boston clubs had over the others. While tho two loaders ended tho season so closo together that tha last day's playing was necessary to decide the championship, Chicago, tho third In the race, was HO points behind Boston. The fight for third place was as exciting as that for first, Chicago «"d Philadelphia closing within 18 points of each other, and tho raco requiring tho last two or three days' playing to decide.
