A cruel tragedy occurred, on Saturday evening, near Winamac, in the cowardly assassination of James Mc- Manuess, more familiarly known in that region, as Uncle Jimmy Boyles, aged eighty, who settled on a farm in Pulaski county many., years ago, bringing with-him a woman who was_ accepted as his Wife iiritil 180-1, when the rightful ..wokuan appeared and supplanted hie*3Viva.l. Some weeks, ago John '-'ijow; a tenant, as' the result ? of trouble .with "Uncle Jiuiiuy" sought out Michael' Jonner, aged sixteen, who had made his home with Boyles since he was four years old, and together they conspired to put him out of the way. On Saturday evening Mr. Boyles saddled his horse preparatory to visiting Winamac, which fact being known to the conspirators, Low loaded a, double-barrelled shot-gun with buckshot, and Connor lay in wait for his victim, and fired upon him from the rear, the entire load passing through his body. Suspicion fell upon Low, and Sunday a confession was wrung from him, which led to the arrest of Connor, who was found in a hay mow where Low had concealed him. Both were placed in jail. A special vonire has been issued for the Grand Jury to take immediate action in the case. The fi. i*. l>un«B To-X!ght. Final arrangements have been completed for the II. 14. K. P. ball at the rink to-night and a most en 1 joyable affair is promised. From 8:30 to 9=30 there will be an exhibition drill by the Uniformed Rank and a promenade concert bpthe new K. P. band. As the U. II. K. P. is one of Logansports crack uniformed bodies the drill will no doubt be witnessed by a large crowd. liie concert by the new band will also be an interesting feature. The grand march will be called at, 9:30 o'clock and from that time on to the wee sma' hours joy will be unconfined. Mr. and Mrs. Fred Van Ormau will go to Chicago on Saturday, where, on the following day they will join a special party of Western hotel keepers and their wives, who will depart for Boston by special train to attend the anaiml meeting of the Hotel Menu 1 Mutual Benefit Society of the United Sautes which meets on the 14th and 15th at that place.

For some weeks past it has been evident to those intimately acquainted with tha state of local business, that the "Johnstown" store, opcrat- en by the Sklute brothers, ^Simon, Joseph and Abraham, was not on the ligh tide of prosperity arid that it could not much longer stand the buffeting of fate and the falling off of ; >tisii)(-!*s which has been, noticable since tho storo moved from the Bur- •ows building on Fourth street to the room it occupies at present on Broadway. In fact for some days past the Sklutes have been busy packing ;heir goods into boxes preparatory ;o stopping store rent, intending to meddle the goods over the country in .vagons. This became known to certain creditors among whom was Mr. W. Burrow,- whom the SkluteH owe $40 back rent. He secured a udgement for the above amount and placed the same in the hands of Deputy Sheriff Gallagher for colleo- ;ion. Gallagher went to the store 'or the purpose of levying on the goods, where he was confronted Joseph, who in the absence of of Simon was holding the fort Joseph refused tho deputy admission and when the latter forced his way n and began levying on the goods, Joseph became enraged and threat- ned to shoot the deputy, who immediately caused the arrest of the irate Pollock for obstructing legal process, and tho fellow was placed in jail. When Simon, who is the head of the iinu, returned, he explained that Joseph did not understand things rightly, and "To" was released. But ;his was merely the beginning of the. end. Connor, Trick & ' Jo. hold a first mortgage on the Sklutes' stock for a bill of goods, and theyimmediately began foreclosure proceedings. This aroused other creditors, and before the afternoon wore away enough claims had been liled against the Sklutes to tako pretty much everything they had, consequently their door is closed to-day. .?a«oh SKorgcv Returns. Jacob Zorger, the Pan Handle freight conductor, whose departare a couple of weeks ago was commented on so freely by the city press at which time he was represented as haying left a couple of maidens mourning his departure and several creditors wondering about t|ie value of certain claims against hini, returned on Saturday, his leave of absence having expired. He mude a trip to Old Mexico and the Southwest, and returns totakehis position in n, few days. Mr. fiorger called at the Journal office and stated that tha charge made against him that his creditors would suffer was an absurd one and time he owed no man anj'- thing; and was ready at all times to meet any financial claim* presented against him. That when he departed on his trip he left enough money ia the pay car to satisfy all local demands on him, besides which he had personal property here inore than sufficient to meet any claim. The story about the girls he laughs at and says that the reports of that affair, which were so generally circulated about the time he loft, must have been prompted by some maliciously inclined person who "had it in" for him, and took this method of "getting even." Mr. Zorger's financial standing or reputation are not in the least injured by thoso false reports, and he wilt take his former run this week, as of old, undisturbed by what has passed.
