who Fired oa Guards WAS A NEPHEW OF MR JO COFFEY The reign of lawlessness at Empire on Saturday culminated in the slaugh ter ol Bobt H Coffey of this city who had been for nearly a year in charge of the force of guards stationed at Em Saturday morning as John H Fields one of the guards was escorting a number of miners to their workj about oclock they saw a party of nine strikers on a hill across the railroad from themines about half a mile away The strikers opened fire and the miners quickly got out of range of Winchesters Fields threw himself on the ground and returned the fire until reinforcements arrived under Deputy Sheriff phas J Barnesand Chief Guard Ii IF Coffey Theatrikds Wericeased firing and disappeared over the hill A squad of guards under Geo Lander started in pursuit on foot Coffey borrowed a horse from Dr Gooch and started through a piece of woods toward themC Lander called out to him that he had better not expose himself alone buthe did not stop This was the last seen of him until he was found dead four hours later lie was nearly two miles from the mines when found near the bouse of I ayles3 Parker Soon after he left the guards heard three shots in that direction AsCoffeys gun was his hand loaded the probabilities are that the three shots were fired at him from ambush as he rode through the woods His body was found lying on the right shoulder the gun under him The horse was eating grass probably fifty yards away The fatal shot a mushroom bullet from a rifle It entered the left leg above the knee severed an artery and spreading out tore out a place almost as large as a mans hand on the inside of his leg As the horse was unhurt Mr Coffey had probably dismounted when attacked He was lying In a pool of blood lifeless He had bled to death in a very few momeats Coroner Allenswor went to Empire Saturday and held an inquest G W Lander was the principal witness who detailed the facts given above He was corroborated by B F Grant Deputy Sheriff C J Barnes stated that J W Anderson was suspected of the murder as his shoes found to fit the tracks leading from the place art er Andersons arrest The jury returned a verdict of mur der fromagnnshot at the bands of parties unknown Before The finding of the body Wm and Ed Gold worthy Jr W Anderson Geo Philips Ellis Dickard and two tramps named Barton werearrested Wm Goldwortby resisted violently and attempted to shoot Deputy Barnes with a pistol snatched from John Fields scabbard He was overpowered and disarmed The men were all brought to this city Saturday after noon and lodged in jail The body of the dead officer was brought to his home in this city at203 East 18th street and funeral services were held at 3 oclock by Bev C H Nash of the Baptist church Afterwards the Masonic Lodge of which the deceased had been a member took charge of the body and burled it with Masoalc honors In Hopewell Cemetery Mr Coffey was 53 years old and a brave and efficient officer He for merly lived in South Christian but la ter entered the scrvibe of the L N Railroad as a special detective which position be held until his health failed He located at Guthrie and served a term as mayor of that town Then he came to Hopklnsvllle and having re gslled his health a year ago he was employed by the Empire Coal Co to guards its property He had been there ever since and when the Sheriffs posse was sent be became one of the 30 depu ties sworn in lie wile the recognized leader and as such the strikers feared and bated him He stated to friends when here two weeks ago that he was marked for slaughter by the law lees element but Never 1tati t t 1 moment lie was absolutely fearless rind the very man to deal with a law less clement Ills intrepid courage made him reckless at times and this cost him his life He leaves a family of five children and the bereaved widow He was twice married He first wife was Miss Boyd and the second Miss Chalkley of Virginia lIe has three grown sons and two smaller children Two of the sons Asa and Bob are in Honolulu Frank is in the railroad business and was present at the funeral The trials of five of the men arrested were called yesterday and continued until Thursday Two tramps named Barton sere released The officers believe they have the right men or at least a part of them There is much indignation felt at the assassiimilnu and while there is no immediate danger it would not take much more trouble to arouse a mob spirit opklnsvllle Kentuckian The murdered man was a nephew of Mr Jo Coffey Cashier of the Columbia Bank Fights Iris Way to Liberty Nashville Tenn Oct 28A des perate man George Parker alias Butch Cassity cowboy murderer and train robber wanted for complicity in the great Northern 83000 ex press robbery at Wagner Ont escaped from the very clutches of the law this morning and the chase after the fleeing desperado makes up one of the most exciting days in the history the Nashville police department News of the thrilling dash of the bandit spread through the city In a very few minutes and it was not long until many citizens armed with pistols rifles and shotguns joined Chief of Police Curran and Sheriff Hurt and their men in an effort to apprehend the man but as the case stands he outwitted them all He went to the Newman Co dry goods store and after making small purchases presented a 50 bill in pay went It was found that the bill was one of those stolen from the express train A telephone message was sentf to the police and the bandit waS tained Detective Dwyerand Dickens responded Detective Dwyer asked the man his name to which he re sponded giving the name of Ferguson We are officers and you are under arrest said Dwyer at the same time placing his hand on the man shoulder Quick as a flash without uttering a word and before the officers could pull their pistols the prisoner with both hands threw back his coat and jerked from their holsters a brace of forty live caliber pistols holding them in either hand commanding the officers to per mitblm to pass them Dwyer had his pistol while the other officer had his pocket billy filled with shot They grabbed the prisoner from each side and a desperate hand Whand encoun ter followed in which neither of the three men had a chance to use a pistol Dickens brought his billy into play up on the head of the bandit but be fought on like a demon Fur three minutes the three men struggled in a small space near the frootof thc store only a few fees from the door In some unaccountable manner the desperado a man of herculean strengt threw the officers from him and made a dash into College strectl Before the officers could recover themselves the man ran down the street where a large ice wagon was passing On the wagon were three negroes The bandit threw otc pistol In the holster he wore catching one of the horses by the bridle He com mad ed the negroes to leave the wagon stating tbathc needed the team Two were on the pavement in a jiffy but one refused to give up and did not leave the drivers box until after hi life had been threatened The despi r ado grabbing the reins and a big whip jumped to the drivers seat whipped up the horses and was off in a minute the team going up the grade fireenglna fashion AS the bandit drove up College street Detective Dwyer re opened fire on the fugitive and missed The desperado proceeded on his wa to the Cumberland river bridge apply ins the lash to the steeds at their every jump The wagon swayed to and fro as It went over the bridge narrowly escaping a collision wit othervehicles In the flying ride the desperadu lost his hat With coolness and delibwRtJoa the bandit decided upon his xuov lie was certain he was being jwJsijed by two and perhaps a dozen oWcers and citizens Bridge aveBtae at the cO rncr of Frst street he noticed a buggy with a goodlooking bay horse attached His brain acted quickly The ice wagon team was slow hitched to a cumbersome wagon This team could not stand the race against more fleetfooted animals and the driver decided to abandon the vehicle He threw the horses killing one and leap ing from the wagon marked with four bullet holes leaving a trace of blood behind on the seat he told a negro who was standing near by to take charge of the team Again he show ed rare presence of mind Running across the street he held up an old negro who was driving the bay horse which belonged to Maj M J Dodson After securing the Dodson rig the bandit drove on at a frightful rate Across thorough fields he went to a saw mill near the river passing across several gullies where telephone poles are trimmed for use There were several hundred of these poles The bandit did not falter for an instant when he found himself hemmed in but whipped up the faithful steed and sent him lOa mad dash over the tim ber buggy and all Some of the poles were a foot or two apart but he did not mind this his only thought being to bush the horso along in the sensa tional drive for liberty Leaving the pole yard he came to a fence He hcstitetl a moment and then tore down a section driving through without stopping for an instant The bug gy turned over but the next instant ittwas set aright the horse was whipped up and again was sent across the coun try at a gallop stopping not for wire fences or other obstructions The horse was tiring and to stay with him would mean arrest Abandonment gave hope So jumping from the bug gy which had remained Intact during the long hazardous drive he started through section of Shelby Park on footThe bandit noticed a horse tied near the river He cut the hitch strap mounted the horse bareback and again started off In a gallop The ride for the next few hundred yards was as sensational as the trip across the telephone poles This time the animal had w jump through wire fences and over gullies and ravines anywhere from ten to fifteen feet deep At last he was stalled la a triangular wire fence with a thirtyfoot gullY a few feet ahead The animal was then abandoned by the fugitive The man was being closely pursued by Detective Dwyer and Patrolman W II Giger and several shots were tired by the officers and tha bandit When last seen the man was going due east Penitentiary bloodhounds were put on the trail but the path had been tra versed by officers and they could not track him Capt Henry Curran all available policeman and Sheriff Hurt and his moll along with several Constables were all in the chase by this time When he abandoned the buggy fear ing he should be apprehended perhaps he threw a wallet bulging with green backs in the air Capt Cnrrau now has the money 1260 in 810 and 820 bills of the Bank of Montana in his possession They answer the description of the stolen motley in every de tall When last soon the wan was bleeding at the head perhaps from a pistol wound but more probably from the effect of the clubbing he received rom Detective Dickens at the New man store In all probability he is in league with Anna Rogers alias Mandie Wil lams and has been here sltce the time of tier arrest Following the trial of the woman a story was afloat that three men confederates of the woman were present at the trial tosdiscover was true

Republicans of Adair coun ty entered the fight yesterday morning with a determination such as they had never before exhibited in a county contest The colored element of the party was on the square by the time the polls were opened and their ballots were rapidly cast until they had voted out But few darkies if any failed to vote and every white Republican in the two Columbia precincts took an active part in polling the full strenth of the par ty By ten oclock the Democratic candidates were convinced that the day was lost to them and the par ty workers became negligent and from that time on but little inter est was manifested This overwhelming defeat is not a surprise to many Democrats of the county For weeks it has been conceeded that the Republi cans had a strong organization and and were working day and night to get out every vote in the county Upon the other wand the Demo crats appeared to be dillitory and the party workers exhibited no signs of enthusiasm It was known that they were up against a majority of three hundred or more and to overcome that was problem too difficult to fathom Every Republican candidate in the county who had opposition has been elected the majorities ranging from 250 to 850 James Garnett Jr the Demo Attortney no re ceived the full strength of his par ty and perhaps as many as one hundred Republicans who are his personal friends complimented him with their votes R T McCaffree the Democrat ic candidate for Surveyor was elected without opposition While the Democrats of Adair county have been badly snowed under they are not dismayedand in the future will prove their ability to cope with the strong op position It is not our intention in this article to explain the de feat but to acknowledge it neith er do we mean to abuse our Repub lican friends for scoring their greatest victory inti this county They are entitled to all the officas for which they contended entitled to all the glory and satisfaction that should accompany victory The offices belong to them and and likewise the responsibility- We are built to stand most any thing even an overwhelming Re publican victory and while we find no pleasure in breaking the news of our defeat still its our mission and below we give the vote of this following is the vote of the county by precincts County Judge Nest Columbia Dohoney 116 E a s t Columbia 192 Milltown 92 Keltner 80

George W Ewing many years ago a to citizen of Columbia and who yet has illmany relatives in Adair county We had not been in Jeffersonville but a minutes when the object of our visit was discovered moving slowly up street It had been a number of years since we met him but he was recognized at first sight looking very in much like he did twenty years ago excepting his stooped posture and the changes that the weight of years will bring He is now seventy nine years if we remember his statement at It would be the pleasure of his life to he could again visit Columbia and of Adair county meet and converse with many old friends associates of his boyhood and early manhood days He was perfectly delighted to see us and bad we had the time he would have doubtless put in a day asking about the people of Adair county He made particular Inquiry concerning the Tutt and Mercer families Mrs Mary Cravens and her children to whomhe is His health is not very good though he is able to be about everyday For about fifteen years he filled is regular job in the carworks at Jef fersonville and gave up the position account of the inilrmltleQf age Any day when the weather is good he can be seen on the street leading to the boat landing He is generally alone walking with his head slightly of seemingly meditating as we thought about his old home and the friends of his earlier days He of Adair county and Adair county people and so anxious is he we would be glad he could come and spend a few happy days among the scenes of his childhood The last words he said to us when we bade him farewell

has always been with He is enterprising and Is using his utmost endeavors to advance the interest of Columbia not only in a way but In every other way tends to elevate man A few weeks ago he started the move to organize a Y M C A iu this place but the way was not made clear until last Sunday At the close of his talk sufficient sum of money was raised by subscription to rent the Christian College
