A BLOODY An Old GMidote Settled «« the ftdlg In fe Kentucky .Mountulii fdwft— three Men Killed. '. Lisx.moTojj, tfy., Nov. 8.'— A gentle tnan just from Irvine, the county seat of .Estill County, this State, fifty' miles distant, gives the following details of the. bloody tragedy which took place thorp -election day. Dr. P. A. Lilly, prominent young physician, came up to the polls with Charles White, a negro, The would-be voter was challenged by John Wilson, and a row ensued between the latter and Lilly, in which the lie was passed. Then both mon reached for their revolvers. Lilly drew his weapon quickly, but Wilson's pistol hung in his pocket and was discharged before ho could get it out. While he was strug. gling to free his revolver Lilly fired two shots, both taking effect in Wilson's breast near the heart. Wilson managed to fire twice at his antagonist in rapid succession. One bullet struck Lilly near the heart, the other missing him. At this juncture Will, a brother of Wilson, came up behind Lilly and wrested the pistol from his grasp. lUit this did not atop the wounded physician, for hastily drawing his large knife, he made three fatal stabs in John Wilson's body. Both ombrvtants fell to the ground, but the fight weut on, and Grant Lilly, a brother to the doctor, rushed up to assist his' wounded kinsman. Before he coula render aid Wilson, with his life blood flowing fast, raised on his left elbow and with trembling hand fired at Grant, inflicting a fatal wound in the abdomen. As ho fell Wilson crawled over to where Dr. Lilly lay and raising his pistol high in the air brought it down on his victim's skull with crushing effect. Lilly died a few minutes afterward, but Wilson survived : till Wednesday at noon. Grant Lilly died Wednesday night. . J Several bystanders, including Judge H. C. Lilly, were slightly wounded by stray balls, but none of them will die. Dr. Lilly was a son of Judge H. Clay Lilly, circuit judge of the mountain district in which is Estill County. He has had great difficulty m holding court in several of the mountain counties. Several times he has been protected by the State troops. The press of the State has criticised Judge Lilly's action, and Dr. Lilly and his brother Grant have been very much worried over these criticisms. Grant Lilly some time ago assaulted Editor McCarthy, of Irvine, with a pistol fgr copying an article from an exchange reflecting on his father. Dr. Lilly a few ! tnonths ago went to Richmond, Ky., for the purpose of whipping Editor Tipton, of the Climax, because ho had corned' something Judge Lilly did not like." Wilson had been rather free in expressing his opinion about Judge Lilly's official action, and when the trouble arose Tuesday over the negro voter the opportunity presented itself to both men to settle the old grudge. More trouble is expected. BLACK diphtheria was prevailing in an epidemic form in Cygnet, O., and the was ., schools were all closed and business practically suspended.

Ciirc.AGo, Nov. 8.-The Tribune says: The Democratic land-slide has had an appreciable effect upon the political complexion of the United States Senate. That body in tho Fifty-second Congress will have 88 members. The Republicans had calculated that it would stand 51 to 87 in their favor. Tuesday's election, however, disappointed them in Illinois Kansas, New York, New Hampshire, North Dakota and Wisconsin. The Legislature in some of these States is doubtful, and others is certainly Democratic.

Six years iwo Ellison Hatfleld was killed by three McCoys the murderers wore arrested, but a raiding party of Jlntflelds took them from the officers arried them into West Virginia, tied them to trees, and riddled them with bullets. Two ears ago a man named Tom Wallace stole the niece of Herman McCoy, who was murdered in the war time. Tho girl escaped rom him after u time, but he led a party of Hatflelds into Kentucky after her. Failing o find her, the raiders dragged her invalid mother, Mrs. Daniels, from her bed and beat er almost to death.
