THE FIRST GUN. Inauguration of the Local Po litical Campaign. . .'' ■ Mooting of tlio Qormnns of the Seventeenth Ward. ’ A, C. llcslng- and .“Buffalo” Miller Announce Tliclr Boimrturo from tho Republican I’arty. A mooting of Seventeenth Ward Germans was hold at Tuloloman’s Theatre, on Olybourn ave nue, yostirday evening, for the purpose of or ganizing a movement toward - changing tho present state of municipal affairs at the election next fall. There woro about 200 persons iu at tendance. The mooting was called to order by Mr. A. Hettinger, -who proceeded to mako a speech , denunciatory of tho manner in which tho city government is being ran. Ho said ho believed that the .so-called temperance notions, with trhich tho heads of our local rulers scorn to bo full, could bo eradicated .as well ms slavery iiad boon. Ho was opposed to tyranny in ovory form and. could seo nothing hut tyranny in iho action of the present City Government. Tho Gormans wonld, unquestionably, obey tho law, or what is called law, but would seek their redress, with other liberal people, at tho polls next November. Messrs. Adolph Schoonlngor and Frick woro elected President and Secretary, respectively. Tho former said that tho object of the mooting was to organize a movement, regardless of party politics, whereby tho liberties of tho people could Ijo scoured and retained. It appeared to bo tho mim of tho present City Government to abridgo the Constitutional rights of citizens, and make them subservient to its will. Tho Gormans hod come under its Know-Nothing displeasure moro than any other people, but they woro determined to assort their mauhoo.l, and lot tho so-called louiporaueo people know that they woro neither drunkards, serfs, nor fools. Thoy wore determined to got rid of tyrants and retain their liberties. It was to or ganize for this purpose that tho mooting had toon called. The speaker hoped that tho move ment would bo of such a character that tho three Gorman papers could conscientiously unite in its aupport, and that other people, who woro suffer ing from tho Know-Nothing oppression, could join in it. . ’ . „ Mr. KuobolsdorlT was tho next speaker. Ho made a very excited address, saying that tho Gormans had boon driven fo organize for solf protoction by tho narrow-raindod raou who aro at tho head of municipal affairs, and who are en deavoring to force tholr own sectarian and Know-Nothing opinions down tho public thru.*. Thoy had succeeded. iu this, to a groat degree owing to tho fact that tho pooplo fcad boon misinformed grossly by tho Eng lish journals. Tho Gormans woro deter mined to stand tho oppression no longer. Thoy woro going to organize for tho preservation of tho rights and privileges guaranteed them by tho Constitutions of tho country and tho Stow. Thoy wore going to battlo for those inostimiblo ben efits at tho polls, for thoy woro alaw-tfidingand moral people,' averse to mob-govonmont and difficulty with constituted authority. ' Ho bo liovod tho result of tho November election in Chicago would bo a storn robuko to tho Know- Nothing and so-called tomporamo element. It would show thorn that tho Gomans and pcoplo of other natlonalties woro nor puritanical, but progressive and free, in their ideas, and jealous of their political rights. TJo movement could not fail, if liberty-loving mm Joined in it, and helped spread it to other dVisions of tho city be tween now and November Gormans must sup port it, or become tho shvea of tyrants. Tho following woro appointed a Committee on Resolutions: Moser*- Kuoholsdorff, Karls, Bohmohl, Loupachor. and Lindan. Mr. A. O. Ucsiiff) being loudly called for, mounted tho platform, and spoko in favor of any movement wbch would free tho pooplo from tho thraldom cf narrow views and national prejudices, by vhich our municipal rulers seem ed to bo swayed* If ouch a movement could bo organized by Republicans and Democrats who beiiovod In Oroeuom of thought and action, and who woro arxkraa to preserve tho constitutional liberties of tho pooplo, so much tho hotter. Tho success of tho city waa being imperrilod by tho Know-Nothing course of tho raon in power. Tho record of tho Gormans In this city aud'iu other cities throughout iho country could bo pointed to with prido by ovory Gorman. Thoy woro not drunkards because thoy lovod tho convivial boor, yet the English press of tho city bad endeavored to ■ mako them appear os such. Tholr history in tho war for tho preservation of the Union and tho abolition of slavery was as honorable as that of any other people. Thoy showed their patriotism and love of American institutions on many a gory field. But it seemed, from present appear ances, that all their sacrifices only entitled them to be trod under foot iu civil life. Their moral record was clearly shown by tho national statis tics of crime. Know-Nothiugism was striving to got tho upper hand again m this city, but it would ho put down os it nos before. Native Americans had produced moro public men at (whom the finger of scorn could ho pointed than Foreigners, what was Colfax ? Was ho a for eigner? Woro Brooks, and Amos, and tho other public men who had earned -for themselves tho contempt of tho whole coun try in tho Credit Mobllior matter, foreigners? Tho speaker closed by saying that bo would vote for any man, bo ho Republican. Liberal, or Democrat, who would exert himself to koop tho personal rights of citizens inviolate. Mr. “ Buffalo ” Miller was the next speaker. Be told some funny stories, denounced the tem perance pooplo and tho Temperance law, and said that ho would never again vote a Republican ticket. Ho would bo a Democrat henceforward, end would advocate tho election of men who would faithfully represent tho pooplo and pre serve their liberties. At this point tho Committee on Resolutions announcod'that it was ready to report, and tho Chairman proceeded to road the result of its la bors. Tho resolutions called upon all Gormans to Join in tho movement against temper ance and for tho maintenance of tho rights and privileges guaranteed by tho Constitution. Liberal men of all parties woro invited to take part in this work, as tho Gormans did not wish to bo exclusive. Tho throo German papers of tho city were also called upon to support iho movement, and all Gor mans woro advised to summarily dispose of that fibeet which would be tho first to raise a disturb ance or throw cold water on tho plans of tho loaders. Tho resolutions woro adopted unani mously. Mr. Francis A. Hoffman, Jr.,' spoke in favor t>f sinking party prejudices iu tho coming cam paign. In order to show how ho felt about tho matter, ho turned about aud shook hands with Mr. Hosing. This was to signify tho union of German Democracy and Gorman Republicanism. Tho Chair announced tho following as tho Ward Executive Committee: Messrs. Schnabel, Earls, Habno. Brand, Hoffman, Dromm, Morko. tongachor, Bloimo, Fricko, Lludau, Lewis, and Hottenger. Tho mooting then adjourned. THE CITY IN BRIEF. Tho anniversary reception and donation at tho Homo for tho Friendless is deferred until Thurs day, tho 11) th inst. * There will bo an entertainment given by tho young people of tbo Third Unitarian Church, this evening, for tho benefit of tho Sunday /School Library.

On Monday evening noxt an entertainment for tho benefit of the Nursery and Half-Orphan Asy lum, will bo given at Standard Hall. Thoro will be a concert and a hall, and tbo arrangements, being in tho hands of tho lady managers, those Who attend ore assured of a pleasant evening. On Robey street, between Jackson and Van Huren. a “to lot” ticket has boon posted ou a domicile in substitution for a yellow “ Small pox ;horo” announcement, which has been frightening passers-by for a month past. Don’t all apply at once. The Council Committee on Licenses mot yes terday afternoon, and agreed to report against the passage of tho ordinance requiring every owner of a vohiclo to tako out a license. This precious document was a creation of tho bralu of tho Jlon. Arthur Dixon, commonly known as jho “ teamster's friend.” It non stated in lux Tuuoux tho other da? that Mr. Wheeler, who occupied tho position of toss puddlor At tho shop of tho Chicago Plato and Bar Mill Company, was discharged for good reasons. It appear* that ho resigned, and this correction la made at hla request. . „ Yesterday afternoon throo hoy*, named Oharloa Fioldmack, Oharloa Burgos, and Willie Borvis, ran away from tholr homos. and have not Einoo boon hoard of, Fioldraaok lives at No; 881 War ren avenue, and took away with him hla mother's Sold watch, a Masonic ring, and a revolver, one of thorn woro ovor 10 years old. Yesterday afternoon a Gorman teamster named Carl Mach, whilo In an intoxicated condi tion, foil out of his wagon on Olybourn avonuo. and, alighting on hit) head, broke his nook, and was instantly killed, ■ Ho lived in tho country. His body was taken to tho Webster Avonuo Sta tion to await tho action of tho Ooronor. Tho gnmblora who woro arrested for vagrancy, on Tuesday afternoon, woro yesterday morn ing hold under S2OO bail in onofi case, for further examination, which moans that they woro lot go long enough to; engage in borrowing money, or something of tho sort.' so that thoy can oomo into court, and show that thoy have an occupation ouloldo of gambling. Tho Woman’s Hospital of tho Slate of Illinois has boon removed to tho now building recently purchaaed by tho Board of Governors, No. 229 Thirteenth street. Extensive alterations are 'being made in tho honso, and until those aro completed tho Managers will not ho able to re ceive any now patients either no inmates or in tho dispensary attached to tho institution. Duo notice will bo given of tho reopening. Tho Commissioners of Lincoln Park have sus pended tho ordinance in relation to fast driving on tho Lake-Shore Drive on Fridays, of each week, from 2to 7 o’clock p. m. Tho speeding of horses will bo permitted at tho time mentioned above, from Dlvorsoy street to the Circle,— south to tho point where tho Drive deflects' Into the Park. . All parties driving will keep to tho right. Sulkies will not bo admitted. Tho alarm of fire' from box 278; at half-past 8 o'clock yesterday mcVning, was caused; by tho discovery of .flames in tho , old Union' street Police- Station, between Randolph and Lako Streets, which many «. bumtnar ana oaot-Off will remember tenderly as a lodging-house -during tho past winter. Tho flro is believed to have boon started hv an incendiary. Loss, S2OO, fully insured. I’ho house is tho property of tho city. An interesting part of tho testimony in hear ing before tho Commissioners on iho exchange of city and Government property for Library purposes, has to do with fixing tho value of tho walls of tho old Poat-OQlco building as thoy stand. Tho evidence taken from exports is to tho effect that, for general business uses, thoy aro worth nothing, except for debris, as tho building is not on the business .lino, and could not bo adapted for business uses without being tom down." Tfiio question Is solely, What la tho material worth ? A mooting of tho Sons of Portsmouth—men who woro bom in the Navy-Yard city of Now Hampshire—was hold atNo. 158 State street last evening, for tho purpose of making arrange ments to attend tho celebration in commemora tion of tho two hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the settlement of tho city. Tho attendance was not very largo. A committee was appointed to visit tho railroad managers and loam If a re duction in tho faro could ho sccnrod. Another mooting will bo hold next Wednesday evening. Wo understand that tho vestry 1 and Building Committee of Trinity (Episcopal) Church decide on tholr Church plana this week. Those now under consideration have boon propaiod by Mr, Gordon H. Lloyd, of Detroit, and aro thorough ly ecclesiastical in tholr stylo of architecture, without any very costly, ornamentation external ly, tho design being to secure a more effective aa well aa ornato interior. Wo hopo to give our readers full particulars in a few days. Tho rector, the Rev. Edward Sullivan, to-day closes tho fifth yo&r of his residence in Chicago, and celebrates it by mooting bis congregation social ly at tho residence of W. M. Tildon, Esq., No. CBO Wabash avonuo. Tho occasion will, proba bly, bo ono of much interest and enjoyment. Tho reverend gentleman also proposes preach ing his quintonnial anniversary sermon next Sunday evening. Yesterday morning Dick Latlirop and his wife, Lottie Palmer, wore before Justice Scully, on tho charge of bigamy. Tho case waa continued until tho 24th inat., m SSOO bail, tho prisoners promising to bring witnesses to prove that the law had loft them single before they woro united iu matrimony. A good strong link in a chain of evidence, which would prove tho controry, was received by Borgt. Sam. Ellis, yesterday morn ing, in tho shape of a dispatch from Racine, Wia., signed by J. W. Palmer, and which road as follows; “Mrs. Lottie Palmer has throe husbands, if married to Diok Luthrop.” It is assorted on good authority that Mrs. Lottie Palmer has married and remarried, but has never boon unmarried, neither by death nor by tho law. She has led a life replete with ro mance. having been a circus-rider. No bail was given in the cases, and whereas, a few _ short weeks ago, Dick Lathrop and Mrs. Lottie Pal mer stood before a church altar in bridal rai ment, they now languish iu tho damp and mould of tho Cook County Jail. THEY TOOK HIM IN. TUo 'JThIcS Who IZobbod.tho St. Louis Public Library Arrested m Chicago— lain Career Among thO Faro-lSanku. A man named Qoorgo Sbumaway, alios Wilson, Thompson, Brown, etc., who bos figured some what prominently In this city and St. Louis as a gambler and thief, was arrested yester day morning on Laßallo street by a St. Louis doteetivo named' O’Neil, and Denny Simmons, of tbo city force. Sbumaway was arrested on tbo charge of having broken into tbo, rooms of tbo Mercantile Library of St. Louis, ono night in tbo month of March last, and oxtraoting therefrom two oil paintings valued at $2,600 apiece, aud SIO,OOO worth of ancient coin. Tbo circumstances which led to his arrest aro as follows : Tbo efforts of tho po lice having foiled to ferret out tho whereabouts of tho goods, or to fix tho identity of tho burglar, tho Librarian of tho institution, Mr. John W. Dyer, inserted a card in tho city papers, stating that S2OO reward would bo paid for tho return of tho goods, and no disclosures would bo mado. Ono day tho Librarian re ceived a card stating that tho missing property was at his disposal, at a certain place, on Broad way, in St. Louis. Tho Librarian wont thoro, aim it was delivered to him by Sbumaway, minus two valuable medals. A reward of $175 was paid to Sbumaway. Tho police wore apprised of tho recovery of tho property, and wore de termined to know who tho. deliverer was. Tho Librarian, boiug a gentleman of honor, declined to betray him, but was finally brought before tho Grand Jury, and compelled to disclose Shuma way’s name and residence. But, before this, that smart rascal had loft tho city, and had come to Chicago, which was his former homo. Yester day morning Doteetivo O’Neil arrived In tho city, in quest of him. It was believed that only an exhaustive search would reveal bis bid ing place. But, happily, in this tho detectives wore mistaken. Doteetivo Denny Simmons was detailed to assist O’Neil, and those two had not walked throo blocks away from tho City Hall before they espied their gamo. Ho was arrested without dilUculty and lodged in tho Control Sta- ; tiou. Not long aftor his arrest, Constable James 6. MoElligott appeared in Mr. Wash burn’s office, accompanied by Miko McDonald, and askod if tho prisoner had any money or val uables on his person when arrested which ho had surrendered over to tho authorities. It was a matter of surprise to tho detectives that Mike McDonald should znako any such inquire, hut, it being a civil question, and pre sented in a gentlemanly manner. 1)0 was told that Mr. Ellis had eomo property In his posses sion which ho had taken from Shumway. Forth with MoElligott servod a garnishee upon Mr. Ellis for tho property, anu, to mako matters more certain, served another upon Air. Wash burn. Tho propriety of this proceeding will bo shown by the following: Last fall, Miko’u faro bank, No. G3 West Madison stroot, was often frequented by Sbumaway. Ono night ho lost heavily, and, to mako it up, slyly cut a hole in tho bottom of tho money-drawer, while tho gamo was going on, and extracted therefrom $l3O. Ho soon after loft tho city. McDonald, who is a fioor man, being a vagrant, now seeks to recover ho money by serving writs of garnishment. Sbumaway, it would seem, has mado a business of robbing tho money-drawers of faro-banks, which, since stealing stolon money is only a slight offense, is somewhat commendable. Last winter ho robbed a faro-drawer in Bt. Louis of SI,OOO, and, as tho money could not bo fonud up on his person, ho was acquitted In tho Polico Court of tho charge. Hois a young mao, about 80 years old, slight in build, hluo eyes, and a shrewd operator. Ho was taken to Bt. Louis last night. To tho Pigeon-Shooting Match. The Lake Shore St Michigan Southern Hallway Stock Yards dummy will mako an extra trip to-day, leaving the Harrison street depot at 13:15 p. m.. to accommo date those wishing to attend tuo pigeou-ahootlug match at Dexter Park, THE PLANS. Result of Yesterday’s Meeting of tho Committee. The Number of Competitors Eg duoed to Six, How Mr. lilley Destroyed His Chances by Carelessness, Since the eventful day when Aid. Ogdon de clared that “ Wo, tho Chairman of this Commit tee," did not want any reporters to ohroniolo tho actions of that Committee in tho selection of plans, tho gentlemen and others representing tho daily papers woro not admitted to their'ses sions. Even tho Janitor’s brother failed to steal surreptitious admittance. And, though moro than ono column of a certain disreputable news paper was printed, purporting to be a report of tho doings of tho Committee, not one word of it contained a syllable of truth. Tho Joint Committee mot yesterday morning and discussed matters in the ’chilly privacy of Kentucky Block. Thoy adjourned till afternoon, when six plans wore to ho chosen of tho sixteen which hod boon sifted out from the forty-nine. Mayor Modill was present. Aldermen Ogdon, Bailey, Heath, MoQouuiss, and Schmitz j County Commissioners Lonorgan, HorClog, Galloway, Singer, and Boguo; and Public Works Oommia . sionors Thompson, Carter, and Prindivlllo woro also present. The Committee, after illnousoiug iho morilo of some of tho plans, took a vote, which romiUnd in the choice of tho plans of tho follow ing architects t Messrs. .Matz, Gay, Burling Sc Adler, Randall, andWhoolook & Thomas. Six moro ballots woro hod, and No. 8, tho work of a foreign architect, was admitted at tho earnest solicitation of Aid. Ogdon, who desired to give tho author a complimentary vote. This argument for tho choice of No. 8 has already boon pressed by Aid. Ogden throe times. The question is whether No. 8 will not receive tho first premium by a complimentary vote. i . The article published in tho Times yostorday criticising tho plans of several architects pro duced some slight talk among tho Committee. Tho writer, while praising tho really handsome and strikingly original design of Mr. Tilioy, in dulged In some strong language in reference to .Messrs. Burling & Adler. Tt charges the latter gentlemen with, a direct attempt to bribe a ro jortor of that paper with a pair of costly sloovo nittons and a sot of studs to match. So un reliable is the 2'imcs generally that tho artiolo bad directly' tho opposite effect to that intended. The Committee woro inclined to throw Mr. Tilioy overboard, and accept Messrs. Burling & Adler, with' no' hotter reason for so doing than that a direct charge had boon made against tho • latter , by a newspaper which was noted for its untrnthfulnoas. This is to ho greatly regretted. If iho charge is true, it is sufficient cause for the exclusion of this design, and can bo proven very readily. Tho city editor of tho Times, or iho reporter to whom tho bribe was sent, will doubtless testify to tho fact, if it is a fact. It is tho iuioutlou of tho Committee to investigate the matter, and, should the charge ho sustained, to drop Messrs. Burling & Adler without more ado. If the charge is false, another libel suit will bo added to the already extended list arrayed on the legal slate against tho paper which published it. Mr. Tilley’s plan received the warmest com mendation from tho Committee for its origluali ity, beauty, and harmony, but tho architect has mode au error for which ho should never forgive himself, —an error of sheer carelessness, by which ho has lost tho fruits of all his labor. One member of the Committee said: “Ho must have boon inspired when ho drew that plan, so per fect does it soombut, liko many another man of genius, ho has lot a trilling error rulu him. His comers each project eight foot into tho pub lic street, and beyond tho limits of the Court- House Square. This piece of carelessness is de plorable, because it cannot bo remedied without destroying tho symmetry of tho structure. The plan of Messrs Armstrong & Egan found a staunch supporter in Aid. Bailey, who has tho contract for the County Jail, in process of con struction according to plans furnished by this firm. Ills iuliuonco, however, failed to save it, and it wont by the board without’ creating any groat stir. On the first ballot, Messrs. Cochrane & Miller received but throe votes, and on the remainder their stock never rose higher than five. This result was entirely unexpected, and will create considerable amusement among tho fraternity. Messrs, llauklu & Garuaoy were dropped again, but this was to bo expected. They are entirely out in the cold now. Of tbo nine plans eolcctoil cn April 23, tho fol lowing havo boon dropped : Messrs. Cochrano & Miller, Welsh, TUloy, Karla, and Armstrong & Egan. Those that remain of tbo ulno'aro Otto Matz, • Honry L. Gay, Burling & Adlor, and Whoolook & Thomas ; No. 8 aud Boudall bavo boon added. Tho next stop contemplated by tho Committee is ono which will moot the views of tho tax-pay ers. They will employ an export (not a bogus ono, but d genuine export) to inspect every ono of tiro plans aud specifications, and estimate tho cost. Tho gentleman who is thought of is a Scotchman who has mado: a busi ness of this inspection, • having been carefully educated to it. His labors iu this city have saved property-owners largo sums of money during tho rebuilding season, by correct ing tho charges of contractors aftor tuo archi tects had passed upon them. To those gentle men who have employed him ho has saved about 16 per cent of what their buildings would havo cost. Ho has boon In tho city a littlo more than a year,. . On Wednesday next, tho Committee will In spect tho written descriptions sent in by tho architects, confining themselves to tho sixteen from among whom wore chosen the six fortu nate gentlemen named above.

for tho order as amended, and ft became a po lice law. • On and after to-night, tho members of tho po lice force are empowered to outer saloons after 11 o’clock, and arrest persona who aro found vio lating tho ordinance, ao specified in tho' above prdor, .... . . Yesterday .afternoon Commissioner Sheridan showed Tun Thidunk reporter tho following, which he said ho intended to offer at tho moot ing of tho Board to-day: I disapprove of that portion of 800. 3 of General Order No. 22 which directs tho officers " to arrest forth-, with," as an unnecessary, Injudicious, and dangerous exorcise of power. ■ Tho Commissioner has but slight hope of be ing allowed to spread his protest on tho record of proceedings, AMUSEMENTS. m'viokee’s TiiEAxnn. Wild Oats,* 1 ono of tho merriest and most de lightful of tbo old comedies, was presented at MoYiokor’u Theatre last evening, with Mr. Edwin Adams as Hover, a character which ho has made almost liia own, and In which his capacity for gontool comedy is exhibited with most admirable effect. Tbo audionco was not a lorco bno, a fact for which tho rainy weather was doubtless re sponsible. for it is not to bo supposed that so completely charming and attractive a perform ance as Mr. Adams 1 Hover would bo lightly patronized on any other account. In spirit and humor, and in tho graceful dash with which tho impersonation is Havered, it is a most engaging part as played by Mr. Adams, Ho was but mod erately supported by the company, tho members of which seemed 111 at case In the old comedy. Mr. 'O'Neill manifested a tendency to slightly exaggerate tho rolo of John Dory, and Mr. Piorco was rathor tamo as Sir George. Mrs. Allen made of Lady Amaranth a Quakeress sufficiently de mur© and charming, and tho Ephraim Smooth of Mr. Barry was a creditable pioco of character acting. Tho same bill will bo glvou this even ing. DIBOnOAKIZBD. No performance waa given laat evening at Myers* Opora-llouso by tho Kitty Blanchard Bur louquo Combination, which waa disbanded yes terday. Cause, lack of patronage, and tho cause of that suggests itself.

Testimony of Witnesses of tlio Affray Between Deceased and Ills Mur derer, John Miller. Coroner Stephens yesterday held an inquest at the County Hospital, on tho body of Charles P. Wiokstrom, tbo murdered Swede, the circum stances of whoso death woro given in Tina Tptn unb of Wednesday; Tho following is tbf evi dence elicited s Dr, Emmons, worn: 1 nude a pont-moriem ex amination of tho liody of Charles wlokslrow, at tho Uorgno, May IS, 1873. I found no marks of Injury upon tho body. I found a wound upon tho posterior right stdo of bead. Upon opening tho head I found tho skull fractured and tho brain broken dowu, and considerable pus formed, Tbo pus is the result of tho Inflammation aftor tbo injury. In my opinion, tho man como to bis death from tbo injury rocelvod upon tho bead. Tbo wound was produced apparently by somo blunt Instrument, that would crush the skull by tho blow. A sluugshot, or small hammer would pro duce such a wound, but a fall would not. John Dngman, sirom : I rcaldo at Ko. 109 North Welts street. 1 bavo boon acquainted with Wlckstrom since 1804, Know him in Sweden. Ho was my room mate at the same boarding-house. Aftor tho dauco Wlckstrom find myself started to go to bod. Miller went up wllb us. Miller and Wlckstrom got into n 'quarrel. Wlckstrom told him (Miller) to go to bed. and not bo fooling around there. The quarrel ended by Wlckstrom calling Miller a thief. Miller pul hla band In tho Inside pocket of his coat os If looking for something to strike him (Wlckstrom) with. Wlckstrom said “ I know ■ you have got a sluug-sbot, but I am not afraid.” I wout - between tbo two men. I told Wlckstrom to goto bed, and took him by the coat and Jerked • him Into ■ tbo room, and closed. tbo door. • Wlckstrom then undressed and went to bed. Kelson then came Into tho room. Carlson, tho proprietor of tho bouse, came'lnto the room, and ookcu Wlokatrom wUt Uo bad »lm«od Millor, saying that Miller complained that be (Wlckstrom) bad called him a thief. Wlckstrom said that Miller was in tbo habit of running from one boordlug-bouso to another, without paying bis debts, and of stealing bis baggage and running away. Carlson then went away. Wlckstrom then Jumped out of bod ond started out of tbo door, Into the boll, saying bo wanted to sco Carlson aud toll him wbot kind of a man Miller was. I told him not to go, but bo went out. I then saw Minor como up tbo back stairway, I beard a heavy crack or blow, and then a fall. Then I saw Miller run back very quick and go down tbo same stairs. Nelson and myself wont out Into tbo hall. Wo carried Wlckstrom to bod. Wlckstrom sold that Millor struck him with a kuifo on tbo book of tbo liosd. . Joseph Carlton, sworn: I bavo scon tbo body In tbo dead-bouso. It Is that of Charles I*. Wlckstrom, who boarded with me. I saw him last olivo ot my board ing-house, on last Saturday evening. Ho was com plaining of a wound in tho bond. Uo stated to mo that it was a blow given him by Charles Miller, also a boarder at my house. (Tbo evidence given by the wit ness was tbo same in substance as that of Bagman.] CharUs Kelson, sworn: 1 reside at No. 193’North Wells street. lam a boarder at that bouso. 1 was ao Jualnled with Charles P.

Wlckstrom was at tbo danco, also a man by tbo uamo of Miller. I •do not know of any trouble between thorn. That night about 12 o'clock I wont up stairs to go to bod, . >Vbcu I got opposite tho room occupied by Wlckstrom, a man named John Eugman was standing In tbo door of tho room, and Wlckstrom was In bed. Ho como outride of tho door into tbo ball. Just then Miller came up stairs from tbo bock part of tbo bouso tbat4oads down to bis (Minor’s) bed-room. Ho paused tbo door (of my room very quick, and immediately afterward I heard a heavy fall, aud tnon Millor ran by my door again, and jumped down tho stairway, I bad to pass through tbo - room occupied by deceased, ond John Eugman to got into my own, but was standing at tbo tlmo In tho room occupied by deceased. Engman and myself tbero camo out alter tbo fall, and round Wlckstrom lying in the balL Carlson, tbo proprietor of tbo bouso, camo up-stairs at tbo same time, aud walked up to Wlckstrom and asked him what was the matter. Wlckstrom said Millor has hit mo.” Wo lifted Wlckstrom up and I saw a wound In tbo book of his bead. Ho was bleeding from tbo wound. Wo put him to bod, and bo again said that Millor; bit him. From tho tlmo that Wlckstrom left tbo bod until I beard tbo fall was not ono mlmito. There was no ono in tbo boll but Millor. Ido not know of ony trouble between Wlckstrom and tho other boarders. Miller left the bouso on Sunday morning. Tbo next day I saw him In tbo yard, and ooou after some one said that Millor bad gone. Uo was running when I saw him In tho* yard. I did not speak toMlllor about the cane when bo passed the door; bo went so quick it was impossible for me to seo whether ho had anything In bis bands or not. There was no loud talking or noise previous to tho fall. I never saw Millor havo a slung-sbot. Tbo verdict of the jury was “that tbo Bald Charles P. Wlokatrom, now lying dead at tbo County Hospital, in tbo City of Chicago, camo to his death May 12,1873, from inflammation of tbo brain, produced by a fracture of tbo Bkull: and wo, tbo Jury, find that said injury was produced by some instrument in the bands of John Miller.” Tbo police know tbo whereabouts of Millor, and will liAvo him In custody boforo tbo roodor baa finished perusing tbo above testimony. MAKING THE FEATHERS FLY. Swoopstalcos Plßcon-SUootinff at Box* ; ter Parlt Afternoon. Tho first of a series of pigeon-shooting ovouts, arranged to talco place at Dexter Park,occurred yesterday afternoon. It was a sweepstakes of $25 each under the English rules, there being twenty-three entries. Tho peculiarity of tho English rules is that fivo ground-traps are used, placed five yards apart at equal distaucos from tho score, with which they communicate bystout cords. Tho shoot or, not knowing the trap that is to bo pulled, must keep an oyo on tho five, so that the difficulty of the under taking is largely increased. Some com pensation, however, is found in the privilege of using the second barrel if tbo first fails to bring down*tho bird. Borne very fine shots wore made in this way, two birds being dropped by Messrs. Thomas and H. H. Klein man at a range of over 60 yards. Tho crack shots wore out in full force, but they made a poor showing, Paine, Tinker, and Bogarduu be ing about the poorest on tho entire list. It was to bo oxpootoa that they would suffer some dis advantage, as the various competitors woro handicapped, tho best shots being required ,r(o shoot at 80 yards’ rlso, while others woro placed at 28, 27, 2G, 25, 24 u and 23 yards respectively. Tho day was exceedingly cold, and (ho birds, though wild, woro dumpish and hard to raise from tho trap. This operated seriously pgaipst good scores, as nearly ail tho pigeons would walk off throo or four yards from the trap before taking wing. Tho progress of the match was very much retarded thereby, and when darkness overtook tho marksmen they had shot at but 10 birds oaob, and the match was {' lostponod until this forenoon at 10 o’clock. Bo ow is tho' score as for as shot Varda rise, ‘ Score. .....'JO 000110100 I—4 ......80 111110111 I—9 A'ame. T. A. Paine. K. W. Tinker.... A. 11. Bogardus., A. Kloinman.... M. L. Johnson..
