ANOTHER MURDER. \ Death of a Man from Iho Effects of a Wound Received Noaly a v Month Ago. Ho Was Struck on tho Hoad with a Bottle, and His Skull Praoturod. A Bwodo, named John Wlokstrom, who is sup posed to have boon' tho victim of. a tragedy, died at the County Hospital on Monday afternoon, from a fracture of tho skull. Tho man was re ceived at tho hospital, lost Saturday afternoon, in company with a-man named--Poto Nelson, Jboth- men having boon brought thoro Ini an express-wagon, from tho Scandinavian boarding liouse No. 102 North' Wells street. Wick otrom did not appear. to bo suffering very seriously from tbo wound in his head, and tbo Warden therefore did not question him as to how It was received.. Bub soon after tho Bwodo was put to bod, and boforo tbo wound had boon examined, ho grow unconscious, and remained oo until Monday afternoon, whon ho died. Dur ing tho time ho was in tho hospital ho remained insensible, except* that ho appeared to .suffer acute pain. .Upon examining tho wound it was found to consist of a fraoturo.of tho skull, which oxtondod from tho top of tho head almost to tho baso. Tho skin had boon partially sowed up ovor tbo fraoturo, ns tho result of which mortifi cation bad set in. Tho fraoturo had also healed on tho odgos, but minute splinters of tho bono actually penotratod tho brain. From what can bo ascertained, the man had lived, had oven walked and talked, and conducted himself very muoh as other men do, for throe weeks with his head in this condition. Tho man died without giving ony information which would indicate how tho wound was received. But tho man who was brought in with him Booms to havo opened tho way to tiio solution of tbo mystery. In conversation with a reporter of Tm Trib une, yesterday morning, ho said that Wlokstrom and ho bad been boarding for eomo timo at Carlson’s boardlng-houso, No. 102 North Wells Ltroot; At the same house was a Swede named John Miller. On tho night of April 20, which was Saturday night, a uanco was hold at tho lioueo. Ho did not participate in the dauco, being confined to bed at tho timo. Tho next morning ho saw Wickstrom in bod, and was told that Mil ler had stabbed him in tho head, in a fight, tbo bightprovious. Joseph Carlson, tho proprietor of the board ing-house, was also interviewed. His story Is substantially ns follows : On tho night of April 20. a dance was given at tho house, which was attended by Miller and Wlokstrom, at which liquor was freely drank. When thoy retired, which woe about 12 o’clock, both men woro con siderably under tho influence of the liquor. About half-past 12 Carlson hoard a eouftle In tho hall on tho second floor, adjoining his room, and, putting on his clothes, wont out to aoowhai caused it. Ho fouud Wickstrom prostrated on tbo floor, near tho head of the stairs, in a pool of blood. Ho answorod whon askod what was tho. matter, hut was uuahlo to get-up without assistance. Carlson called - Wickstrom’s room-mate, a man namod Ragman, to help him carry tho wounded man to hia bod. lie soon after revived, and said that Miller and bo had boon fighting, and that Millor had struck him with a botllo. Miller, who roomed on tho first floor of tho house, had rotirod to his apart ment after executing his bloody work. Carlson saw him at an early hour tho next morning, and. upon mooting bun, Millor said, <( Did I ovor steal anything from this house ? Wickstrom said I wva a thief, and that’s why I hit him.” Soon after bo wont out of tho roar door of tho bouse, and, according to Carlson’s statement, has not been soon since. About 10 o’clock tho next morning* (which was Sunday) Wlokstrom arose and came down stairs. He said ho wanted to see a doctor, as his hood hurt him. Carlson gave him tho address of a Dr. Foss, whoso office is at No. Cl East Chi cago avenue, and tho wounded map walked un assisted to tho place. A Tuhjd.se reporter called on Dr. Foss yesterday afternoon. lie said that Wlokstrom called at his office on Suuday morn ing, the 27tb of April, and said that ho had boon out on the head with abottlo. Tho physician examined tho wound, and, ao bo coys, found a long, gaping gash in tho back part of the head. Ho stated that he was unable to find any frocturo of tho skull, or any depressions, and, therefore, stitched tho wound up. Ho declares that ho examined tho gash very oarofully, but saw no fracture. If this statement bo true, tho mystery darkens, and It is yet to bo unraveled as to whore and when tho frocturo was made. Tho mauhad no money, and Foss told him ho would treat him no longer, and suggested that ho go to the County. Hospi tal. Tho next morning tho physician received a note from Carlson requesting him to moke a call at Ilia house to see tho. woundod man. Foss did not go, however.- for a reason wnui, ho Baid ho believed was a good ow, viz., Wiokstono had no money and ai**«vld go to tho hospital. Tho only °V * ftVol ° statement, that tho skull of the dead man was, ua at that time, £s, what seems to bo a fact, *-„ t ho Uvcd for two weeks after receiving the wou..j. ftn( j during most of tho Umo, according to Caribw'y mont, was not only strong enough to warn talk, but was rational.* • About four days after the fight, Dr. Askbrlus. whoso office is at the corner of Division ana Market streets, was called to attend Wick strom, for erysipelas. At least this is his statement, lie says ho did not closely examine tho wound in tho hoad, as tho man did not scorn to be suffering much from it. Wickstrom, dur ing all this time, would say very little about tbo fight with Miller, aud did not wish tho latter ar rested. Dr. Emmons hold a post-mortem examination on Wickstrom’s remain yesterday morning. Ho decided that death had resulted from a fracture of tho skull. There was much inflammation about tho wound. Coroner Stephens will hold an inquest to-day. but it is probable that the mystery will remain as it is. THE CITY IN BRIEF, There are two more dogs to-day, which makes ISO iu the city.

Tho object of tho mooting was to examine witnesses in order to enable them to complete thoir report. Thoy will doubtless bo ready with it boforo tho end of tho woolc. A Scotchman named .John MoDougal, from B&ltimoro, yesterday wont into tho saloon No. 18 North Canal street, and was induced to w&gor bis gold watch, worth S6O, and sls in currency, In tho American hazard gamo. Ho was quietly beaten out of both, and tho property holug tho sum total of bis wealth, ho was a most disconso late man when ho roportod his loss at tho Union Street' Station. A detective wout with him to tho snloou, but tho birds had flown, and tho sa loon-koopor professed to bo entirely ignorant of tho fact that such a gamo had been played in bis establishment. On Monday evening Officer Oudmoro dis covered eighteen boxes of cigars piled up against a,wall on tho first floor of a vacant building on the southeast corner of Clark and Water streets. Tho circumstances led to tho belief that they would bo called for boforo morning, and, con cealing himself, tho officer kept faithful watoh until half-past 11 o'clock, when ho was rewarded by seeing two men cautiously enter tho building. Cudmoro caught one, and the other escaped. The arrested party gave tho name of George Mc- Kean, and was before Banyon yesterday morning on tho charge of larceny. Tho examination was, however, continued until tho 14th. In a letter from a correspondent, published in yesterday’s Tbiduhe, it was stated that the Ben ders, tho fiends who havo boon murdering no many people in Kansas, fonnorly lived in Hyde Park, near this city, and loft there a year ago. Inquiry of old residents of Uydo Park, yester day, failed to elicit any information regarding thorn. No one recollected such a family, and, if they ever lived in Hyde Park, their homo must have boon in the Holland settlement, near Burn side station. Tho brisk breeze from tbo north which began blowing so suddenly on Monday, was ushered in by a olond of almost phenomenal peculiarity of appearauco. First a long, narrow silver band lay against the northern sky. This rapidly mounted, increasing in size, until it was half way overhead, when it stretched clear across the sky from oast to west, a bright, snowy front, with on inky, ominous background. Not au other cloud was visible at tho time,' but this sil very sky-bolt, which, when just overtopping tbo city, lot loose an exhilarating north wind, to bang about shutters and blinds, and suggest to parties about to retire tho propriety of au additional blanket, and one, just one, more "night-cap.” Talking of tho execution in this State on Fri day next reminds one of the sang froid once displayed by a Hoosior reporter named Elijah Halford, but familiarly known as Ligo. Ho it was that asked a criminal on tho drop to ."wiggle his little lingers as long as ho was alive and * conscious.” so that tbo report ers could form some idea of how a man felt after ho was turned off. One would naturally think that so promising a journalist would have made his mark in his pro fession. With what surprise, therefore, does ouo loam that ho gradually sank from the proud rank of police reporter on an Indianapolis paper to tbo menial position of managing editor of Hr. Scammou's organ. Tho Hotted States engineer who has charge of the improvements of tho harbors on Lako Michi gan opened a number of proposals yesterday at his office. No. 151 Lake street. Among tho bids was ouo for extending the* Chicago breakwater, and another for ' making an addition to tho pier at Calumet. .At tho latter place SIO,OOO will bo expended this year, and when tho work is completed there will bo a good channel eleven or twelve foot deep. Tho breakwater at this city is to bo extended 800 feet during this season, making it, when this in completed, 3,000 feet long. Only 950 footwill thed remain to make it 1,000 feet long, as originally designed. About $90,000 will bo expended.

It will probably bo remembered that tho Times accused Commissioner Ashton of taking brick and stone from the ruins to build his house. Tho Wines, ns it invariably does, mis represented tho developments made at tho pre vious session of tho Committee, ami, as appeared yesterday, deliberately Uod about Ashton and . Mr. Dixon, tho contractor. Commissioner Ashton proved to the satis faction of tho Committee that ho had not taken a brick or a stone from the county’s building, and that ho had purchased several thousand bricks of Mr. Dixon, who owned tbo ‘ property, ho having bought tho ruins of the city’s portion. Hr. Dixon also showed that I\p waa guiltless of any of tho crimes charged by the Times, Tho Committee decided to report' to tho Board that they had investigated tho matter, and wore una ble to ascertain that any material, except that used in tho construction of county biuldings, had boon taken from tho ruins. Richard £. Lathrop and wife, of lUclno, spent two hours in tbo colls at iho Control Police Sta tion. Lathrop, ■who has boon employed by tbo Western Union Railroad Company, was divorced thirteen years ago from his llrst wife. Since that timo sho has repeatedly endeavored to in duce him to marry her again. Ho has refused, and a fortnight ago married Mrs. Charlotte Palmer, of lluuino, m tide city. The ceremony was performed at the Western Avenue Metho dist Church. Mrs. Lathrop No, 1, furious at not being married again, pursued the party to Chit cago, and yesterday obtained a warrant for their apprehension on tbo charge of adultery, su)>- posing that they were cohabiting unlawfully. They woro arrested by Detective Lackey at No. 990 West Monroe street, tho residence of Mr. Lafayotto Varney, and, taken to tho. police station. A reporter Intor viowoa them in tho coll. Latlirop ia a pre possessing man, but declined to give any in formation, hoping thereby to escape notice in tbo paper. Ho is about 00 years -of ago. Mrs. Lathrop No. 2 was formerly employed by B. L. Brand as assistant in his photographic establish ment, since which time she has started one for herself in Racine. Sho is a bright little woman about SO years of ago, and quite good looking. She was communicative and had no hesitation in presenting tho facts, but does not give her predecessor a very good character. Sho was married about nino years ago, and obtained a divorce from her husband on tho ground of drunkenness and cruelty. They woro bailed out by Justice Bauyon, and will bo tried to-day.

Tho doctors gave him no hope, when ho carried tho matter to Ood in earnest prayer, and in one moment was fully and permanently restored. The most remarkable part of tho story is found in those words of Brother Travis: “To save tho feelings of tho family 1 withhold both the name and location.” THE BENEVOLENT FIREMEN.
