The dedicatory services will be both impressive and irtte' - est- The all absorbing topic of conversation in the city yesterday was the murder of poor John Gibbs. The victim of a cruel and murderous assault was'an innocent kind of a farm laborer,'who spent most of his time in the city a constant frequenter of saloons and whom many said "had a wheel in his head". He \vas not considered overly bright and was held as' a sort of a nuisance by the saloon keepers who were always ready to take his money when he had any and to turn him out when he had none. When sober he was fairly industrious and when not working on a farm was ready for odd jobs about town. Not many days ago he was employed by Engineer Osmer as chain-man on a land survey. He came to town a few days ago to take a job with John Baker, the ice man and as he stated to a friend he was keeping- sober lo be ready to go to work when the ice was thick enough to cut. His propensity to frequent saloons was the cause of ing. Prof. Jos. Gulp,opened his juvenile dancing school in the G. A. R. hall yesterday afternoon. The attendance was quite larg-e there being more than forty of the brightest lads and lasses of'the city-in. the class. Prof. Gulp has an elegant class and his instructions will make the juvenile club graceful dancers. The instructions will be • continued each Friday afternoon after school. Prof.. Gulp gave his first lessons to the Lotus, club at the G. A. R. hall last night. HIS UNTIMELY DEATH. Yesterday morning at an early hour he went into Hunter & Klein's saloon on Third street, and became engaged in a game of cards. The game was thrown onto Gibbs and his partner. When it came time to settle Gibbs told Klein the barkeeper that he Jiad no money. Barney told him that be could not work him in that manner and without further ado began an assault on young Gibbs using as a weapon a murderous implement made of a section of hose 19 inches long loaded at one end with a billet of hard wood. Jt was I A MURDEROUS WEAl'ON which in the hands of the infuriated saloon keeper did its work quickly. At the first blow Gibbs cried out that he would go and started for the door. Before he reached the door and safety he was caught by one Bogue. a hanger on about the saloon who pulled him back. Barney Klein then caught hii victim and jammed him up against the ice chest with" one hand, beating him over the head with the deadly loaded hose. EYE WITNESSES SAY that Klein dealt his victim a full dozen blovvs before he released him. Gibbs then regained the "door'and started up the street. He turned at Broadway and staggered up to the Senate saloon, above Fifth street which he entered and tottering up to the bar leaned his head on the railing and asked for water to wash his wounds. John Tierney went to get tbe water but before he returnee! Gibbs had wilted and fell in a heap on the floor. It was thought that the man was drunk and he was carried outside,. but he F.ELL AS ONE FAKAI.YZEU on the pavement. Officers Murphy and Cullen c ame along and picked the injured man up to take him to jail for drunkenness. It T. was impossible for him to walk and they carried him to a dray and loading him on started him off to jail. Bystanders interposed and told the officers that the man was not drunk but FEARFULLY ENJUKIED and suggested that the man be taken to a doctor. The officers replied that that would be all right, that the man would get proper treatment at the jail. When asked how he was hurt and who did it, all that Gibbs could reply was that "BARNEY DID IT:'' At the jail it was suggested to Deputy Sheriff Gallagher that a doctor be summoned to examine the man's condition but he repli ed that ' 'He will be all right when he wakes up." Ic less than an hour the man was dead! Immediately after, John Keller, brother-in-law of the deceased filed an affidavit against Klein, charging murder. A warrant was placed in' tbe hands of Marshal Dean and-Barney Klein was soon behind the prison bars. He at once retained D. D. Dykeman and M. D. Fftnsler as attorneys. The body of the murdered man was taken.to.the undertaking- establishment of Woll & Parker where it was viewed by hundreds of persons impelled by morbid curiosity yesterday. TUB POST MORTEM examination which was made by Coroner Ballard and Dr. Arthur Hermann revealed externally a deep cut about two inches long on the right of the back of the head, a badly contused left eye, right eye somewhat bruised and other bruises and abrasions on the head. An examination of the brain showed that the middle meningeal artero had been ruptured.. The blood clot thus formed had exerted a pressure on the brain which CAUSED HIS DEATH. When interviewed by a Journal i-e- porter Dr. Hermann said that with prompt and proper treatment Gibb's life could probably hare been saved; that the operation of trepanning for the purpose ' of relieving the brain of such pressure was a common practice, and that in this case there was no especial reason why it could ha,ve not been performed successfully. Yet the ignorant "officers who did not know a mortal wound from a plain drunk, let the man die in jail without medical attention! Coroner Ballard will hold an inquest this morning at 9 o'clock. The weapon which did the deed is in his possession and was looked at b; • many with much interest yesterday. Barney Klein, the prisoner, has been in partnership with G. W. Hun. ter for the past nine months. He is said to possess a violent temper and to be hasty in action when crossed in any manner.

An Illustration. Of the value of extensive and judi cious advertising of any article of undoubted merit is found in the remarkable success of the California Fig Syrup Co., which has simply been phenomenal, even in the age of great enterprises. Organized a few years ago to manufacture a new and more perfect remedy than hwd ever been produced, a laxative with original and attractive features, prepared from delicious fruits and health-giving- plants, one which would be pleasant and -refreshing- to the taste, as well as really beneficial to the system, v the management very wisely concluded to select the leading- newspapers throughout the United States to make known to the public the merits of the new remedy, Syrup, of Figs. Recognizing the Journal as a most valuable advertising medium, arrangements were made with it for the attractive advertisement which appears in our advertising columns. As happens with every valuable remedy, cheap substitutes are being offered to the public, hut with the general diffusion of knowledge it is becoming more difficult each year to impose on the public.
