T., May 2.-At Spengle's undertaking house in this city lie the bodies of two of the most notorious des peradoes of the Dalton-Doolin gang. The dead men. stretched out on two boards, are George Newcomb, alias "Bitter Creek," alias "Slaughter Kiel," and Charley Pierce, alias u Dynamite Dick." The advent of the officers with the re mains of the outlaws was a complete sur prise to the community, as no one had been apprised of the fact that the bandits were being pursued, much less that there had been a fight and that two of them had been kille.l. They were brought in just as they were when killed — in full clothes, with their bouts and spurs on and armed to the teeth. Besides Winchesters, each had on a revolver apiece and belts of ...

She and Durrant Seen Together by Four Witnesses on April 3. Despite the frequency with which Theo dore Durrant. charged with having mur dered Miss Minnie "Williams and Miss Blanche Lamont, has been before the pub lic of late, the interest taken in the case, owing to the shocking character of the crimes and the mystery that still so largely surrounds them, remains unabated. This •was intensified yesterday by the fact that fl was known that Judge Conlan was to render his decision in the matter of the preliminary examination of Durrant on the charge of having murdered Minnie "Williams and was also to take up the pre liminary hearing in the Blanche Lamont ease. When the court opened the usual crowd of morbid-minded people was present. The absence of women was, however, a notice able feature. • Upon taking h...

Soledad was backed down from 10 to 4 to 1 in the opening race. The sister to Dolly McCone, Dolly M, was also carded as a good thing in the first event, but finished back in the ruck. Ichl Ban showed up very well for the length of time he has been in "Pop" Weaver's care. Professor Oscar Gleason, the noted horse tamer, is evidently as good at picking winners as he is expert at subduing the vicious mem bers of the equine world. He hit the ring hard yesterday ewer the wins of Ricardo and Norb lieh, getting over $5000 ahead on the day. When a horse opens in the betting at 9 to 5, is backed down to 7 to 5, and at the last moment recedes in the ring to 2 to 1, with the bookies clambering for the money, it is a sure indication of a hard winter.
