GREAT EXCITEMENT AND STRONG TALK OF LYNCHING. THE MURDERERS ARRESTED AND TAKEN TO GREAT BEND. 30 PRE VERT A MOB, The citizens of our town wore called upon Thursday to witness a deed which for cold-blooded fiend isbness, is without parallel. Geo.W. Brower and Burr Cofer, both farmers living some six or seven miles from town, had for some time been and Brower had at often times been threatened with violence, but no notice had been taken of it.

Brower had taken up' some of Cofer's stock which was running at large, and had sitbd Cofer for damage done to his crops. The case was hea rd on Thursday before Justice Cummins' in Dennis Hall. The case was finally compromised, each agreeing to pay his own costs. After the trial Burr Cofer went down stirs and out into the street, and the old man, Burr's father, took his position in the door. As Mr.

Brower passed, the old man cursed him and said, "there goes tho old' thief." Mr. Brower" turned and asked what he said anc Cofer repoated his remark. A good deal of loud, talking was done, and Cofer ap- peared anxious to draw Brower into a quarrel, when Burr dashed up the steps with a knife in his hand and began stabbing Brower. Three bad cuts were made in his breast, and two in his back. Brower staggered a few feet and "fell and died in a few minutes.

The affair took place befoie some twenty five witnesses. The city marshal and constable assisted by one deputy, took charge of both the Cofers and took them to ureat Bend and turned them over to the sheriff. Great excitement pervailod and it was thought that they would be mobecj and1 lynched before they could bo got out of town, but the fore-thought and cool heads of our citizens prevented any suoh rash act. Coroner shaw waB notified and arrived at about 8 o'clock p. m.

a jury was se cured and an inqnest The jury rendered a verdict of murder in the first degree," The coroner returned on Friday morning and dissected the He discovered that one of the blows struck in the breast, had severed an important artery near the heart. The Cofers have been looked upon as bad characters for a long time, but were not thought capable of such a cdol premeditated crime, Mr. Brower was an honest industrious farmer, who hod been a resident of Barton county for some timo. He leavs a wife and eight children to mourn his loes. i uneral services were held in the hall on Friday at 2:30 p.
