From the story "A Midnight Howl"
"A little before 12 o'clock last night the atmosphere was made blue with multiplied howls of 'murder' in the vicinity of court house square. Not knowing what the matter was, everybody on Wabashaw and Fourth streets took up the cry of 'murder' and 'police,' and for about two minutes it seemed as though pandemonium was let loose."
