It is learned from Policemen Richardson and Cassity that Harry Brown and wife, who were married in Joplin about three months ago by Justice Orear, created a small sensation about 2 o'clock Tuesday morning in a room at the Metropolitan Hotel. It appears that the couple had been imbibing freely, as four empty beer and two whiskey bottles were found in the room. Mrs. Brown got her husband drunk, secured $40 or $50 of his money, hid it in her stocking and attempted to escape from the hotel. The police were called in, compelled her to give the money back to Mr. Brown and both went to Hotel Follett, registered, and went to bed and were held in custody until a telegram arrived from Joplin confirming their marriage. The officers then released them and they boarded the evening train for the west. No chloroform was discovered by the policemen, nor do they believe any was used. The woman's reputation is not considered first-class by the officers, and she admitted that her husband found her in the room of a certain clerk and pounded him.

SENT TO THE ALMS HOUSE
Yesterday the father of Lewis Hopp, living a few miles north of this city, in company with others, brought him to town securely shackeled and made a statement to County Clerk Spragins to the effect that he was violently insane, having the previous night knocked down and severely beaten his father, who would probably have been murdered had not parties interfered. About 12 o'clock that night the insane man visited Hunt's mill, fired the engine, blew the whistle and aroused the neighborhood. Mr. Spragins ordered him confined in a cell at the alms house. It is probable that he will be sent to the Nevada asylum.

DR. TOOMES' BILL DISALLOWED.
Yesterday the County Court refused to allow the account of Dr W F Toombs, services for attending W T Reeves, who was stabbed by T C Asbridge, the "Blue Man," the judges holding that they had a regular county physician for such cases. They did not wish to establish a precedent which they thought would be dangerous to the finances of the county.

A large number of accounts were allowed. J C Day, sheriff, was allowed $693.80, board of prisoners; W W Donham, circuit clerk, was allowed $58.50 for certifying to and making out said bills. The court was in session five days and allowed bills aggregating $3,644.09, of which $3,118.77 was on the current expense fund and $525.32 on the poor.

Adjourned until Tuesday, 13th inst.

Death of Col. J.D. Williams.

With profound sorrow THE LEADER announces the death of Col. J.D. Williams, who is well an favorably known in this city and state, and throughout the country. He came to Missouri from Georgia soon after the close of the "cruel war," and located in Kansas City, about 1868, and established a newspaper, the Bulletin, we believe. He conducted it with ability and success. It was afterwards merged into the Times, of which he was the original editor. The ups and downs of Western Missouri at the close of the war were so varied, and the outlook for Kansas City, at that time, so inauspicious that he disposed of his interest in that newspaper and engaged in another line, in which he was more successful. In 1884 he removed to this city with a view of purchasing THE LEADER, but he and the publisher could not agree on the terms, so he engaged in insurance and real estate, in which line he devoted himself until the day of his death. He was a man of broad views, broader liberality and universal benevolence, and during his residence in this city he transacted his business so honestly that he soon won the confidence of our community. A few years ago he retired and turned the business over to his sons, Chas. Alf and Tom. T Williams, under the firm name of J D Williams & Co., who have conducted the business since. Mr. Chas. Alf. Williams is a prominent journalist and has occupied numerous responsible positions, among them managing editor of Kansas City Journal, and after occupying the same position on the Minneapolis Tribune, under his friend, Col. Brethen, Mr. Tom T. Williams has managed the business lately, and is a young man of integrity and ability. The friends of the deceased and his estimable family sincerely mourn his death. He was a man, taken all in all, the likes of whom we will not see again soon. The funeral will take place from the family residence at 3 o'clock tomorrow afternoon.

Died.

Bert Mitchell, of Taylor township, aged about 21 years, was buried to-day in Maple Park Cemetery.

A three year old son of S. Cofine, who died at Galloway yesterday, was buried today in Maple Park Cemetery.

Webb Grant died at his home in Cass township last Sunday and was buried in Mt Pleasant Cemetery Monday. He was a well known citizen, highly esteemed by his neighbors and the community. He stood upright in the sight of the Lord. Politically he was a Republican but always worked and acted in such a manner as to hold the esteem and confidence of his Democratic neighbors.  Thus the oldest generation of Greene county is passing away, revered and honored. May his undoubted faith in a blessed immorality be realized.

Roden, Bakersfield, Ozark county.

Remains Removed.

Some time since THE LEADER contained an article referring to the neglected condition of several graves in an open field near the wagon works, and suggesting that something be done to protect them from the iconoclastic hand of progress. One of the graves was occupied by Mrs. Sarah Fulbright who was buried more than half a century ago, and the marble stone above her ashes has been broken and worn by the elements and vicissitudes of so long a lapse of time. James Fulbright, of Laclede county, has had his mother's ashes disinterred and removed to his home where they will again be laid tenderly away.

Married.
