A Fatal Affray.

HEMPSTEAD, Tex., April 4. — Deputy Sheriff Richard C. Chambers was shot and instantly killed here this afternoon by Stephen W. Alchin, a well-known citizen. The latter wrote a communication in a weekly paper, reflecting upon the official conduct of Sheriff McDade and Deputy Chambers. When Chambers met Alchin to-day a quarrel ensued, and both opened fire simultaneously. A bullet pierced Chambers' heart, and Alchin was fatally wounded and cannot live, it is believed, twenty-four hours.
