Beaumont Texas In violation of the InterState Commerce Law Sveral car loads of mixed hardware guns ammunition and divers articles and with having fraudulently unlawfully and Knowingly made a false entry of the nature and character of the goods so shipped stating it to be wagon material in the US Court in Texas decided that it did not have jurisdiction of the offense which it was held was com itted in Kentucky at the point of shipment consequently the indict ments were dismissed In Texas At the February term 1900 three indictments were returned in the U S Circuit Court at Louisville against John W Price secretary of the W B Belknap Company Each indictment charged that the said Price acting for and on behalf of W B Belknap Company shipped to Beaumont Texas a load of mixed hardware

in fact said shipment consisted of guns ammunition and en rough wagon material from Louisville to Beaumont Texas was 48 cents per hundred Assuming a car to carry 50000 pounds the aver age load the charge for shipment per car would be 240 00 Each of these cars were actually aded with hardware glass and ammunition The rate on hardware wasg121 on guns 141 and on ammunition 121 The average rate would be 128 which wonld make the charges on each carl properly billed from Louisville to Beaumont 160 00 By shipping the goods as wagom material the Belknap Co saved 40000 on each car A plea of guilty was entered in the court at Louisville to two indictments and a fane of 81000 fixed in one case and 8600 in another The third indict ment was filed away shtas their Chief Executive a man who

from your columns that tollin Hurt is a candidate for Judge Well I hope he will land and tender congratulations in advance I remember him as an oldohum and a wonderful boy orator Then I think Judge Hurt fas a very healing and melodious ring You see I was something of a Judge myself as far as the title is concerned but Bollins is of a judicial cast and his experience at the bar has eminently qualified him for the position Now if he jumps up and states in your columns that he was never a friend of minemerely a passing ac quaintance Ill not be surprised if Stingo Gadderry Zachariab H ectroa Bennett it al r likewiseI I can claim Alex Janes and Albert Bomar for friends as they seem to be unable to enter denial Seriously I would be glad to hear from all those people about whom I have inquired I wish them no harm and shall tryIJ to not write anything that seriously affects their character or Impairs their usefulness They should remember that greatness has its drawbacks and one of them is to be placed in a ridicu ous position before the public Consider Teddy Roosevelt how he toils riot neither does he spin yet Solomon in all his glory was never accused of eating with Booker Washington Then look at W J Bryan the peerless boy orator of the west I have seen cartoons of him and read assaults that planed him considerably low than the angels Then look at Grover Cleveland He has been lampooned and excoriated by Pitchfork Ben Tilman Col Henry Watterson ete and Inova yelled amen at every attack You people backs there dont foal just as I do in the matter There is a good deal of romance and sentiment in my nature and sometimes I grow reminiscent and would like to see any thing or any body from Kentucky Why Id give ten dollars more for a horse on that account and if a tramp dog were to come this vJa- yId be his good Samaritan even if he had been the property of JoB poor Lish Bennett Do you know Id be really glad to see Jo Burpo or Lish Bennett 2 Why two years ago at

section Mr A zblli is a very busy man and step by step he is preparing for the greatest development this section ever experienced and tar beyond the fondest dreams of our average citizen Slqwly but surely Mr Azbllls hopes and ambitions are chrystalizlng into plain practicable theories too plain to be disputed and too inviting to be reo jected by capitalists who desire a safe as well as a highly profitable invest ment IMany are inclined to be discouraged should ba remembered that great enterprises are not secured in the twinkling of an eye as it were or wltbout much work and effort The
