State treasury is located upon the
ground floor of the building and imme
diately in the corner at the intersection
of Marietta and Forsyth streets. The
room was about twelve by fifteen feet
in dimensions and was used as a sitting
room and desk office by Colonel Mur

one into which the vault opened. In it
the parties met and the affray occurred
in the presence of State Treasurer Ken

THS'CAL'SE OF THE r;RAGEDT.
"VVe have endeavored tb get at the
truth in the matter and we give the con
nected acount made up from the state
ments of those who would consent to
speak about them. They are to the ef
fect ns below givjen.
THE CONVICT LEASE ACT
passed bv the General Assembly in 1870,
under which the convicts of the State
were leased to companies formed and
designated as "penitentiary companies."
One of these companies was composed
of several gentlemen, among whom
were Senator Gordon, B. G. Lockett, W.
B. Lowe and Colonel C. B. Howard. The
convicts of the State are divided in a
certain manner between these com
panies for a fixed sum per annum for
each convict, and are employed by the
lessees in labor upon farms, in mines
and in railroad constructions, etc., as
they may be made most profitable.

THE BIDDING AND BARGAINING.
It appears that) Mr. Jesse Walters, of
Albany, who is a representative from,
Dougherty county in the present legis-
ature, had been in correspondence with
General Gordon upon thd subject of this
interest and was desirous of purchasing
the same. hen General Gordon plae-1
ed the interest in the hands of Colonel
Alston for sale he wrote tO'Mr. Walters"
informing him of the fact, and suggest
ing that he see Col. Alston concerning
the matter. Several days ago Mr. Wal-terscinie-to
this city with the view of
meeting Col. Alston and negotiating
about the interest offered for sale. Col.
Alston reached the city ,f rom, Washiug
tiotfjori jSiuiOnayilast and oru Monday had
an interview with MrW alters. In the
meantime Mr. Cox, who was a neigh
bor of General Gordon and Col. Alston
and an intimate friend of many years'
standing of the. latter. Jiad decided io
get out of the lease business' hisaSejf,
and some arrangement hM been' ttade
between him and. Mr.. Walters upwthAt
r . . . V . -i r'nl- r.'r. ' J' . r. . . T i r. 4- n . . n r ff'Snln
as we learn, that in the event MiV Wal
ters purchased tlie Gordon interest upon
ad vantageb'tts terms he Wrrtild aisotae
Mr. Cox's interest upon terms satisfac
tory to the latter. Upon this account
Mr. Cox as ' paftictilaTfy1' ! ahxitfrrs1 thjit
the Gordou slwe shouldib passed- vjsr
to Mr. Waltera, and naturally set him
self to the task of ' aiding tmsi-eRirlt.
When Mr.,WaUi and Colt Alston. met,
lowever, the former would not consent
to pay tha pfice1 demanded by Coldnjel
Alston, which was $4,000. . Col.: Alston
was acting as the agent of General Gor
don, and was anxious, as his friend 'and
agentKtQ( realize . ltddi, the sale aaum
that would free General Gordon from
th leasd withont-ioss. -In other" Words,
that amount of money . wou hAveJjLat
covered the expenses of TZetiexali (Gor

the purchase money was j)aid jo make

As the governor then went 6ri to his

as he had had no. dinner, he, would go in
there and get something to eat; '
Alston went ' into Berron's and the
governor reached his Office arid: sent

only Treasurer Renfroe and the tax
collector of Gilmer county werein the
Gilmer gentleman remarked that Cox
was abusing Alston beyond endurance;
and that Alston ought not to let a man
talk to him in that way, but ought to
kill him. ,
Treasurer RenTtofe fearing the diffi

COX INVITED ALSTON OUTDOORS

told him he could not get out of it, and

he did so

affair earn on at 3.20 p.; m.; tod for
nearly two hours the men were thus
tenderly cared for by physicians and
friends. Col.-Alston became' very rest
less, and urged his way once clear across
the room in his struggles. He return
ed to consciousness once but only for a
brief -moment or two. --Mr. Frank1 Got-"
don, son of SenatorGordon, was prompt

tion CoL Alston once pressed his -hand
as a sigh of recognition and faintly call
ed his name, "Frank." Then with a
struggle he said : "I am dying . I jet
me see my wife."
THE DEATH OF COLONEL ALSTON
occurred at 6.40 p. in. He was surround
ed by his wife, daughter and son and
by numerous friends. He remained
unconscious, and did not recognize his
wife or children. Mrs. Alston bore the
situation with great fortitude until the
moment of the- final struggle and then
the seehe of grief and woe Was one of
unutterable awe. Tears and sobs of
sorrew filled the air and followed after
the spirit in its flight into the great tin
known. COL. ALSTON'S CAREER
was one rich in episodes of a remarka
ble and often romantic nature He was
a man of peculiar character. He was
descended from ' a famous family, the
Alstons of .SoJtU .CarJjnwho were
men . of . power and reputation, and
whose dash and courage made them re
markable. They were duellists born
and men who rated life as abauble in
a combat for aprincipTeJ or a sentiment
of honor and pride, orin venge'fmce for
a wrong inflicted.
Col. , Alston was Tbom in Macon , (la.,
on the last day of December, 1832. Af
ter emerging from his school days he
engaged in mercantile pursuits in
Chaneatomv SL C, and at the age of" 24
years ttiarried Miss Mary Charlotte Ma
GilldanghteTof a laigo planter; He
began the study of law and was admit
tpraeticeiin 1858. .'He pdrsued the
lawr.fthtU-tn w"ai: eatrie on, when he en
tered the" service and rose to distinction
$SCne of ihcleading'spirits in Morgan's
raiders. . He, was one pf the bravest of
that brave band, and- through -a hun
dred fights recklessly invited death but
never received a wound. At the battle
of Cynthiana, Ky., it isrejajed that he
lost his breaKfsTBv Itaviiighls biscuit
shot from between: nis1-ter1th.
PREVENTING A PKOPHKCV:
Col. Alston has oi'ten remarked to the
writer and to others in the realistic lan
guage Of the west, that he felt as though
'ihe'Quld, not. be spared to a peaceful
deathliut that he should some day "die
'with his boots onT He said this to
Captain Ed. Mercer pne of his most de
voted admirers, and when yesterday
Captain Mefcer looked1 upon the dying
form '-'of Ms friend he recalled the
I alihost prophetic words. And when
the body was earned to a bed chamber
the faithful friend followed it and ten
drlfdrfroWS of CohAlston
was shot down, He did not want to
see that prophecy fulfilled to its letter.

The New Congress; and the Candidates for Olfice.
. Special pispatch to the Baltimore Sun.
W'astilngTON, March 11. It is rather
probable tiat the Senate Democratic
caucus for the 18th inst. will not on
that day do more than discuss the gen
eral line of policy to be pursued during
the session, and arrange for the re-or-
fanization of the standing committees,
t is likely that a number of' Senators
will not be able to get to Washington
before next week, and, therefore, the
matter of changing the present officers
of the Senate can very properly be put
off for a few days. The greatest inter
est appears to centre around the secre
taryship of the Senate, for which position
there are more than a dozen candidates.
Mr. Watterson, of Kentucky, who be
gan his canvass for the office more than
a year ago, expects to start out with
twelve Or fourteen votes, but is likely
to lose after the first ballot rather than
gain. It is very much to the credit
of the Democratic Senators to be able
to say that they have in no wise en
couraged the wiToT"liitflt'fdiffice, and
the majority of them have declined ab
solutely to give any promises to the office-seekers.
This is as it should be, as
Senators will then have the opportuni
ty to select the best material. There
are a n amber of applicants for the po
sition of chaplain to the Senate, which
pays 900 per annum. The Kev.Dr. Ad
dison of Trinty P. E. church, of this
city, is warmly pressed by his friends,
""i4 c "
.j ii. n l : al: i.v
nev.ut, -oisai, or Lsaitimore, who is
backed up by powerful influence from
that city. The Senate has had for
number of years a chaplain of the po
litical stripe, and it would be rather a
relief to have one now who will leave
pcratic Senator suggested to-day that it
would be a good unrig i6t trie Senators
to take turn in offering up prayers, but
