Who were the two men standing on the bridge over tue O. & A. out-oft on Friday night at 6:20 o'clock? That is the mystery in the case of the Harrison murder and when the identity of the two men is discovered then the authors of the cowardly murder will be known. Mr. Harry Paddock, of Godfrey, haa furnished the only clue and his Is a vague, unsatisfactory one. At 5:20 p. m. Friday Mr. Paddock, who is a plasterer, was driving home after his day's labor and crossed the bridge. At that time a 0. & A. trails was passing under it and very naturally his attention was attracted to It; but he and two men with him in the wagon, distinctly remember to have seen two men standing at the end of the bridge apparently waiting for some one, as they made no move that he saw. Suspicion now points to these two men, but who they are remains a deep mystery. They evidently were waiting for Mr. Harrison who bad passed over that road four times a day for nineteen years, and was known to have left home early Friday morning on business. Mr. Paddock was about ten minutes drive ahead of Mr. Harrison, and be could not have gone far over such a road when the tragedy occurred. The theory that Mr. Harrison knew the men is still held, as why else should the reins have been aronnd the whip just as he was accustomed to place them when he stopped to talk to some one he knew. Neighbors of the Harrisons tell of two villainous looking men who frequented the neighborhood for several days and Mrs. Harrison, who is loth to believe her husband was kilted by an enemy, thinks these tramps may have done it. Chief of Police Kuhn thinks differently however and is working on another clue. He is hopeful of discovering the guilty persons and he is also determined that the summary vengeance that is on all sides threatened the assassins, shall not be meted out. It the farmers of tbat vicinity should capture the murderers they say* openly thny will hang them from the O. & A. bridge where the Inoffensive man met bis death. Chief ol Police Kuhn has made a careful examination of the ground and has found blood spots leading from a place half way down the hill. The theory is that after Mr. Harrison was shot, the assassin led the horse down the bill and then turned it loose. The blood spot on the hill was made when the dead man fell forward from his seat. At the bottom of the hill the horse was allowed to go on Its way home and the murderers took to the woods. • PAUL BROS.Tj Prescription Pharmacy, Pore Drag* ud Medicines, Paint, Glass and Oil, Sponges, Cbamloi, Toilet Articles.

This morning, In the Circuit Oonrt, at Edwardsville, the school case came np for trial. The [counsel for defense moved to amend their pleas, which was .denied by Judge Hartzell. The Judge allowed counsel for defense to prove that the .colored children were not debarred from school last September. The counsel for defense, Messrs- Baker and MoOlnnls of Alton, and Travous & Warnock of Edwardsville, presented affidavit* showing the absence .of important witnesses. Tbe affidavit of the attorneys alleged that ifJMessrs. Btowell and Starr, members of the Board of Education, had been present, they would have sworn that the children were not barred from the public schools on account of color; that black and white children were assigned to schools to prevent overcrowding. Tbe affidavits also net forth the absence of Hon. L. Pfeiffenberger, who it present, would have testified that he was architect ot the buildings; that they were as good buildings and as well equipped as any buildings ot their size and cost in the State. The counsel for the prosecution, Ool. Brenbolt and J. M. Palmer, Jr., admitted that the gentlemen who were absent would have testified as above summarized, If present. This of coarse rendered the presence of the witnesses above mentioned unnecessary, and Judge Hartzell ordered a jury called. The examination of the men comprising the panel commenced this afternoon and at the hour of going to press the jury had not been completed. The trial, will, It is said, require two or three days more. It is likely that the case will not be given to the jury before Friday or Saturday evenings.
