WASHINGTON'S LATEST SMATION-FATAL
CONFLICT BETWEEN NEWSPAPER .31M".
A. M. Soteldo, a prominent. news
paper correspondent, and. formerik
news editor of the National Republi
can of this city, -became involved,- a
short time since in a fight with a than
by the name of Keegan in a house ; of
jU fame in Washington, and both were
arrested and arraigned before the police .
court of the city and fined for breach
of the peace. Clarince Barton present
news editor of the Republican wrote
up an account of the affray, which ap
peared in the columns of that paper,,
in which Soteldo was .treated in, no
very complimentaryi terms. • Soteldo,
who was n high •spirited, proud. 'and .
ambitious man, and the head of a
haVing a highly respectable wife. ud
several chilnren, felt deeply ,aggrieved
and offended at being thus held up to
public contempt and scandal. He
made several efforts to induce the piper
to. retract .its charges against him,
pleading as a reason the disgrace and
unhappiness inflicted upon his , wife
and family'. Failing to induce the
editor of the Republican to make a re
traction, he attempted to bribe an
employee of the office to give him the
original manuscript, of the article, with
the purpose of establishing beyond
question, its authorship,
no doubt, the chastisement.of the - man
who wrote it. The proffered bribe was
refused, and -the 'attempt exposed
through the columns' of the paper,
This incensed him the more.' After
brooding over his imaginary injury for
twodays, and in the mean time drink
in< , tO excess, he- devised a
avenging the wrong upon Clarence
Barton the' ews editor of the Republi
a. Having enlisted - the sympathy
of his younger brother, A. C. Soteldo,
theV prepared themselves each with a
five shooter revolver, A. M. Soteldo
carrying a huge bowie - knife in addition,
and i visited the office 'of the Republican
at about 9 o'clOck on Thursday eye
lastJ" Finding Barton on duty- at his
desk, A. M. SoteldO approached, him
and presented a paper demanding an
apology fOr the - insult , oflered him in
the/article complained of, Barton , re
fused to receive the article, 'telling hint
he must see Mr.'Gorham'tle managing
editor. The younger Soteldo in, the
meantime stood upo&the other sido. -of
the table in readiness to participate in
the anticipated affray. .• Upon Barton's
refpsal the elder SOteldo struckAhn
violently while sitting upon his chair.
Barton seized • a revolver which was
lying in the drawer of his table, - and as
he says attempted to fire upon his
assailant who was grappled with
bUt the weapon missed fire. The two
rolled from the chair to the floor, and
_were thus'engaged in a death
struggle both attempting to use .their
weaPons,•the younger Soteldo began
T ing upon Barton, firing several shots
el rapid succession. Two shots took
ffect !mon Barton,. but fortunately
neither was fatal and did not -disable
him. In firing upon Barton,... one -of
'the shots took effect upon his brother,
striking him in the back of the neck
bAind and. below the right ear, which
produced instant paralysis and has
since proved fatal.. Barton finding his,
assailant disabled turned his attention
to the brother who had discharged the
five chambetS of his weapon, and then
fought him by striking with the:batt of
his pistol. He, Barton,- attempted to
use his weapon, but says he could not
•iit the excitement, get it off. One
chamber , howeVer, was found, to . be
empty after tthe melee; and it is thought
he must have fired one shot. The -
struggle between the younger Soteldo.
and Barton, which began on the second
floor of the building, was continued to
the street, both rolling down, the
~By this time the po
lice came upon the scene and Soteldo
the yetinger was arrested' and taken to
the Central police station. Barton Was :
taken in a carriage at once to his.
demo accompanied by a physician,
who dressed his wound and extracted a
ball which had lodged in his neck; but
fortunately had not penetrated any
vital part. His; wounds proved not
serious and he will soon l be out. gin.
_Dirs. Bliss and Sowers were iininWiato-
V called to attend A. Vii. Soteldo,
witent they f(lund lying insensible
from the effect of his• wound in the
Republican - office.. After an examina
tion they pronounced his wound fatal,-
mid he was removed in . an ambulance
to PrOvidence Hospital, and his 'heart-
Stricken Wife was summonnt: ) his bed

completely paralyzed `. and conscious
ness was suspended. - Ile regained
consciousness fora few hours only,
during which time his . ante-mortem
statement was taken, but which has
not yet been given to the public. He
lingered until ten o'clock on Saturday
evening and expired. Thus. - ends a
' amentable tragedy growing out of the
fool-hardy indulgence of a brutal pas
sion inflamed by over indulgence in
strong drink, resulting from evil asso
ciation and gross, immoral conduct.
One life. is sacrificed, an other will . be
consigned to many years of imprison
ment, while the third participant will
wear the'scars of the conflict to the end'
of his days. Barton showed great,
pluck, and--.is complimented for his
heroic valor. - His escape from instant
death seems to be, purely acceidental.
