rather closely the proceedingsof each convention I am brought to believe that some of the observations would not be offensive to the readers of the News hence I will give some of them At highnoon on the 16th day of Ju ly 1002 there convened in the beauti ful Island City of Texas one of the most remarkable conventions ever psrhapsthemostrenmarkable convention in some spects ever held in the history of the Ienocraticparty With no flags of hostile factions with no badges to mark personal ambition and greed free from every trace of bossism ring rule and the acrimony of party strife this convention was most remarkable for Itsperfect harmony and unanimity of action Every question touching platform construction and demands State legislation had been settled as had also been all contests for State of fices by the different county primaries thronghout the State Everydelegate to that convention went there with instructions to vote only for those who had been successful in primaries this including a full State ticket headed by one of the purest men in American politics the cleanest man In Texas politics Hon S W T Lanham No one who has the honor of an acquaint ance with Colonel Lanham as he is familiarly known or who may have heard him on that day when he stood before the representative Democracy of Texas and accepted from them their unanimous nomination to be Governor of Texas can fur one moment doubt his sincerity of purpose his votion to his party or his loyalty to his State and Nation This convention was remarkable for another fact which was this that those delegates gathered there were granted the privilege and delighted to honor the lastllvicg representative of that loyal body of statesmen who com posed the cabinet of the immortal Davis This man was Hon John S Rea gan at one time Post Master General in the Davis Cabinet For sixty years Mr Reagan has been an active worker in the political affairs of his country and there is today perhaps no other man who has served so long and so well the interest of his party and especially the interest of the State of Texas as has Mr Reagan Beginning his public career back in the early forties and continuing with but slight interrup tion to the preSent day filling as he has many of the highest gifts of trust in thepower of his peopleat one time In tbe cabinet of Davis at another In the senate of the United States and now In the closing days of his official life for he says that with the expira tion of his present term as R R Com missioner he will retire to enjoy tbe respect and esteem the confidence and goodwill of those whom he has served and who now regard him with an ad miration little less than a Divine rev erence is an honor accorded to the few and one which none have or will in the future more truly deserve Sufficient however for the Democratic convention and now for that otherthe biennial gathering of the amalgamated forces of the AngloSax on and African races as represented by the Republican party in Texas If the Democratic convention was remarkable this one was far more re markable If peace harmony and unanimity of action characterized the actions of the one strife division and pandemonium disgraced the proceedings of the other If the one could be designated as an AngloSaxon conven tion the other could as truly be termed an angleAfrican convention with a small contingent of the Lily whites If the one lacked In entertainment amusement and excitement so necessa sary to political gathering the oth er was black with all that could demoralize insult and disgrace a lover of the white mans supremacy The bone of contention and the only honor for the convention to award was the empty honor of the chairman ship of the State executive committee lor the ensuing two years For this position contested the three leading lights of this spasmodic party In this Statenamely Lyon Hawley and the multi millionaire E H B Green son of the Queen of Finance of the west Mrs Hettie Green It had been evi j dent for the past six months that a bitter contest was on and with the ap proach of the convention the war cloud and it was a very black one too lower ed with a rapidity that threatened swift and direful results to someone In every county in the State where conventions were held divisions fist fights and bolts were the order from nearly half the counties were sent con testing delegations to the State convention thus augmenting by almost half the normal attendance at these conventions Galveston county sent three delegations representing the three contestants This county Hill bad two delegations and here for the first time I had the pleasure of witnessing the novel proceedure tf two Conventions doing business at the same ttme1n tlje sameJIaJIan each faction exerting their utmost lung capacity in an effort to drown the proceedings tit the other To be properly apprecia ted this sight must be seen The chairman of the county executive committee of this county is a negro preach er black as the proverbial Ace of Spades and as ignorant as Balaams mule though to do him justice be is pretty well versed in the schlkenery and treachery of political bossism I am glad to say just here that til a large number of ExAdair county Republicans in this county only a few of them participated in this convention and those who did havesince said that only with the elimination of the negro will they again affiliate with the party in any but national elections The State convention met in Ft Worth September the 9th and a mot her crowd It would certainly be diffi cult to find The clean selfrespecting white Republicans were woefully In the minority and seemed much cha grined and even disgusted with tbe proceedings A sentiment was early among this element for harmony This sentiment rapidly gained favor andI with the aid of a telegram from headquarters asking the leaders on ehalfI of the administration to secure harmo ny at any cost a compromise was reached whereby Hawley became tem porary chairman of the convention Green permanent chairman and Lyon remains chairman of the State Exec utive Committee The wildest dem onstration I have ever seen greeted the appearance on the platform of the con vention hall the three leaders Green Hawley and Lyon When they hand in hand marched to the front of the platformand announced that an agreement had been reached and that har mony would prevail I almost fancied that I was in the midst of an old time Georgia camp meeting shouts of Hal lelujah iThank God and Amen came from all corners of the hall and when some over zealous and extremely pious colored brother raised the tune of Old Time Religion the enthusi asm knew no bounds and all realized that the climax had come for the most unique convention ever held InI Texas and a fitting climax It was Perhaps the most Interesting charac ter in this gathering was the Hon GooseNeck Bill McDonald whoI enjoys the distinction of being the big negro among negroes in Texas In the distribution of the minor of fices in the convention the Lily Whites took precedence and a firmI sentiment was clearly demonstrated in favor of the quiet but ultimate elimi nation of the negro from Republican councils in Texas And there can beI but little doubt that ere long this will be done when it Is there can be as little doubt that there will spring Into existence a party which will be able to present a formidable foe for the now dominant and allpowerful democracy And I believe that Democrat and Republican will welcome the advent of the white Republican party The Democratic party does not anticipate any ascendency to power of the Repub lican party but the Influence of a clean white and possible though not probable successful rival will do much to purify the Democratic party which from its long years of undisputed control and authority has grown to be none too pure Bcspt MELVIN A TBAYLOB FOR SALE Three twoyear old mules They are good ones Also 1 heffer 18 months old

OLD TRAGEDY RECALLED +CANE VALLEY KY Sept 26 Editor of the News Having read in the News sonic time ago t fa tragedy that occur red in Neatsville Adair county in the fifties written by myold friend WF Neat all of which I remember very well I recall another tragedy that occurred in Adair county in a mile and a half of Columbia many years ago The old house in which tho event occurredJltiHstands on one of tho banks of Russells creek to remind tho old passer of the crime perpe trated in that house In 1841 JacbblJnrk and his two little sons aged 10 and 12 lived in the house mentioned the three comprising his family his wife having died several years previous to the crime I am relating Not being posted with all the details connected with the deed I had to rely upon older men than myself for information Uncle Porry Hancock an old and one of the best citizens of the county and a man of sound judgment and solid information informs me that Burk was a soninlaw of William Henry Harrison not the President but the same name and he claim ed to be related to President Har was a candidate several times in Adair county for the Legislature and in one race he was beaten only one vote Frank Montgomery Sr beat him that vote But to return to the tragedy Uncle Perry Hancock informs me that perhaps on more than one occasion Burk told him that no one should ever control his two little boys but no one thought at the time he meant murder bat time passed on and the father and two sons seemed to be living to gether tranquilly Little did the two innocent boys think when they went to bed that fatal night that it was their last night upon earth The next day Oliver Hancock a brother of Uncle Perrys was passing by the house and not see ing any of the family he went to the stable and there he found the Senior Burk hanging by the neck dead Whilst he was gazing upon the body Judge Zach Wheat rode up They remained awhile then went to the house to hunt for the little boys but found the doors locked By this time it was nearly dark and the search for the boys was abandoned until next morning Several parties gathered next morning and forced their wayinto the house and on the bed the boys were lying spooned with their heads cut off However there was a small piece of skin hanging between the neck and head of one of the boys A bloody axe was near the door and a sharp shoe knife was lying on the table in the room and a part of the bed corn cut off showing where Burk got the rope with which he hung himself Thus ended a Cripple murder that was perpetrated sixtyone years ago which but few

ago the Metho dist people informed this section that the Louisville Conference would establish a school of high grade in the Columbia or adjacent folDgo on a tour of inspection to lookout the most desirable local proIposed school would have the best surroundings in point of patron 0age Columbia and many othe places were visited at that time- eons and we were informed that this beautiful litte city was in th opinion of the committee the most desirable location in all this Sourthern country Later on an other tour was made and then we were notified that Columbia was the place for the school but in or der to secure it a certain sum of money or its equivalent in prop thearty would be required from the people of this section The amount asked by our Meth odist brethren so far as we were able to learn was 10000 No ef fort has been made to secure that sum and from that day to the present this important matter has been in the embrace of a deep sleep Now the Louisville Con ference is here the committees that inspected this and many oth er places are here and we tract that the importance of establish ing a school on the line as hereto apparentffollow As we have been informed the prime motive of our Methodist brethren is to open up new territo ry in point of educational lines and particularly in a section able patronlpose This being true it follows that the great consideration in locating the school should be not the amount of money or property donated by the community but the amount of available pat- onagethe evidence that the school will have such surroundings will build it and give it patronage To our mind Columbia is the most centrally located town in the field in which this school is A needed The Columbia District compos ofeighteen circuits the larger number of them lying South of this place but within a reasonable distance has a membership of 5 It has 22 houses of worship valued at 3510000 10 parson es worth 3500 and 54 local Jmovmggious bodies and not flattering Methodist it seems that they have the strongest foothold in part of the State here and here to stay j here to take ann ac part card wield a powerful influence in all matters that tendIJ better humanity JUBJ a short distance to the north only eightt ten mieQr the Leban on District would furnish a good patronage to school here The Method ut in this district able to support a school of high grade and it would certainly draw a large p strons ge outside the limits of their organization Just now wo have the assurance an electric railway will be from Columbia to Campbells within the next year this will add to the convenience and worth of the school and will result in good to the entire community of this there is an effort to the line to Burksville which at this hour is not a oer tainty but is within the range of opentup proximity to the entire southern- g part of the district We trust that the Conference will not overlook the advantages of this place as follows It is the most accessible center of the field in which they intend to es tablish their school it has the- r direct hacking of 5820 members of their church and the good will of the entire people in district of fully forty thousand It is not hedged in by old and well estab isdthe gateway through Which many passcheach year going to Georgetown Lexington and other Plasso to enter college It is the plaC W loeate t he school heIf this fcfown io WIJlmg to wesn trust that the money considerate will be based on the amount that can be secured by a good system of loliciting The people of this town and county are ready to Aid in bettering our school facilities and an earnest effort along this line would bring good results We now have a good school one that is doing excellent work one that our people are proud of but while this IS true this country is able to sustain another and we are anxious to have the Methodist locate their school in this town We do not consider that would in jure the other but rather be an advantage The best efforts of obrtained where oompetion exists TifREReSorghum making Farmers are beginning to make preparations for wheat Frank White made a flying trip to Lebanon last week This
