News was received here today of a bloody fight on Buck Creek, Owsley county. There were seven men engaged in the battle of whom six were wounded. The participants were: Dan and Newell BREWER and Robert LYNCH on one side, and George SCOTT, Lucien and John TREADWAY and Dan ALLEN on the other. Five of the men were armed with pistols and two with knives. The cause of the trouble was an old grudge existing between Newell BREWER and George SCOTT, the latter having been a county officer at one time and fined BREWER in a pistol case. Both Dan and Newell BREWER were fatally wounded. SCOTT'S wounds may also prove fatal. Robert J. LYNCH, Lucien TREADWAY and Dan ALLEN are also dangerously wounded, but will likely recover. John TREADWAY was unwounded, though two bullets pierced his clothing and another went through his hat. The latest report is that neither of the BREWERS are dead, but that there is not the slightest chance of their recovery.
