Cor.miBus, O., Feb. 24.—A tragedy occurred on High street. Monday afternoon in which two men were killed and seveml. injured. The affair was the result of articles published in two Sunday papers. W. J. Elliott, of tho Sunday Capital, and A. C. Osborn, of the Sunday World, did the shooting. A bystander named Hughes was shot through the head and died almost instantly. Osborn was instantly killed. P. J. Elliott, a brotherpf \V. J. Elliott, was jilso hit. The street was crowded with people watching the parade at the time. The trouble grew out of an exchange of articles in which the principals referred to each other's families. The Elliotts were placed under arrest and throats were openly made against them. I>. J. Elliott, who is the Columbus agent of the free employment bureau of the state, was shot in one arm and the back. P. C. Sullivan, a clerk, was a bystander and was shot in the arm. Among the wounded spectators were John II. Reese, government statistical agent, shot through the left leg, not serious; C. W. Sullivan, book-keeper, shot through the arm; R. E. Gardner, of Danville, O., shot through the ankle; C. W. Reifschncider, struck in the breast by a spent ball. The excitement here Monday night was very high and the situation looked threatening. Large crowds continued to hover about the scene of the tragedy. W. J. Elliott and his brother were held at the city prison, and owing to threats which have been openly made the police authorities have taken extra precautions to prevent any outbreak or mob violence. The prison doors have been securely fastened, and only officers having business in the prison are allowed to go back and forth. W. J. Elliott was interviewed and among other things said: "At 1 o'clock p. w. I drove to town from Arlington, and thought I would go and see tho parade. I met Pat, tny brother, and we started south on High street Whon opposite Park's gun store I said to Pat that I had left a pistol in there to bo fixed about a week before and that I believed that I would go in and get it. When tho man gave me the pistol I put it into my pocket, not even look- Ing to see whether the follow had loaded it. Wo started on south. I did not expect to see Osborn, as he never came up town for several days after he wrote anybody up. "When in front of Schrader's saloon I turned and saw Osborn with a revolver pointed at me. I reached for my pistol wiien I heard n bullet •whiz by my head. I think he shot two 01 three times at me and I fired back Osborn started after Pat, and Pat van into the street through, the crowd, Osborn flring at him and into the crowd." A large number of eye-witnesses say that W. J. Elliott opened fire on Osborn as he came along the street, and the best information is that the first shot fired by Elliott hit Osborn in -the Bide of the head or neck. Osborn, after returning the fire at both Elliott and his brother, ran into a hat store, where he was followed by P. J. Elliott and they had a hand- to-hand struggle, during which several shots were fired and Osborn was shot through the head, the ball entering the chin. W. J. Elliott was at one time state supervisor of printing and has taken an active part in politics. He is a personal friend of Charles Stewart Paruell, the Irish leader. The story of the shooting, as related by Gus and Shedau Johns, eye-witnesses, is that A. C. Osborn was standing in front of Schrader's, talking to Frank Clark, an attorney, when the Elliotts appeared, walking south on High street The two men walked up close to where Osborn was standing and one made a remark, whereupon the other fired at Osborn, who started to back away. He drew a piytol and began firing at the two Elliotts, who were following him, revolvers in hand, and shooting at him. When Osborn reached McDonald's hat store he opened the door and ran in. Patrolman McManamy caught W. J. Elliott and took the revolver away from him. When the police entered the hat store they foimd Osborn lying dead on the floor and Pat Elliott standing over him, revolver in hand. Three revolvers have been found, but Osborn's is not among them. Two belong to the Elliotts and are nearly empty. The police are anxious to find the owner of the third. Every chamber is loaded, and the police believe it was held by some fourth party, yet unknown. Fourteen shots were fired altogether. Pat Elliott says that Mr. Hughes was killed by Osbovn, while eye-witnesses claim that \V. J. Elliott was the murderer. /W. J. Elliott said that he did not regret the death of Osborn in the Least, but would have rather served twenty years in the penitentiary than be indirectly the cause of Mr. Hughea' death. F. W, Leavering is the proprietor ol the Sunday World and Osbom was the city editor. The Elliotts had made charges of immorality against Levering, also implicating Claude Meeker, Gov. Campbell's private secretary. The World on Sunday retaliated, making saarges against the Elliotts. One Hundred and Nineteen Killed. HILL MINKS, N.
