corner of Clark and Madison streets
yesterday and probably" fatally
wounded. The man who did the shoot

was witnessed by hundreds of people,
and the intended murderer would have
"been lynched on the spot' if he had not
been rescued by a strong 'party of
police. The first shot was fired from
behind asd 6truck Clifford behind the
ear, and he fell.
' Olmstead then ran up close to his vic
tim and fired one shot into his side and
another into his shoulder. It is a case
exactly similar to the Memphis Freda
Ward and Alice Mitchell tragedy.
Postmaster Hesing, in talkinir of the
crime, said he firmly believed it was
one of the first fruits of ; the possible
escape of Prendergast from the gal

beastly love which Olmstead' bore to
