How a Dance in a Kentucky Town Was Broken Up, BULLETS AT A BALL. A Ro-v Over One of the Belles in Which Six Men Are Fatally Shot- Others Wounded. dl.VKliS "VVIil'.E 1T.KSTY. .suL-i'.f;, Ky., March 3i—Re- ports have been received at this place of a terrible battle at Kilgore, a small mining'town on the'Newport News £ Mississippi Valley road, about 20 miles west of this place, Tuesday night, in which six men are said to have been fatally shot and several others slightly wounded. A quarrel arose at a ball between two of the dancers over a young woman present. Suddenly a shot was fired and a panic ensued—men, women, and children rushed for the passage to the open air, the door of which became clogged with a mass of humanity whose only object was to escape from the shower of murderous bullets being fired in the hall. The first man to fall was Sherman Lucas, a miner. As • soon as Lucas fell his friends rallied to his rescue and a perfect fusillade was the result. Between ten and twenty men were engaged on both sides, and it is estimated that 150 shots were fired. The firing ceased only when ammunition was exhausted. During the fight the lights were extinguished, which fact no doubt saved many lives. When the smoke of the battle cleared away six men lay on the floor badly wounded. Several others were slightly wounded, not sufficiently, however, to call in medical assistance. The wounded men arc Sherman Lucas, Charles IJunting, Samuel Bunting, Andy Tlowell, Jeff Waugh and David Waugh. The Buntings a-nd "Wauglis are not expected to survive. No one has been arrested for the shooting, and it will be a hard matter to fix the guilt where it belongs. No women or children were injured. A SEASON OF SONG.

The democrats will appeal to the courts to have the re- )ublican judge restrained from taking josbession of the office, on the ground ;hat his election is invalid, and of course that will involve a decision as to Bulkleley's authority to order the election, i ~- __ ' Died of Hi9 Wounds.
