years ago There are now in this country 195000 miles of rail road The earning capacity of this property is equal to 2000 per annum for every man wo man and child in our whole country All who are a little intelli gent on the subject know that the stocks and bonds of the grea steam roads are regarded as goo investments But a 11 are no aware of the odds against which these securities earn their divi dends We give our readers a few facts for the sake of compar ison with investments in Inter urban securities of the best kind Beginning with 1893 when so many of the steam roads went in to the hands of receivers for over a decade the steam road- have been combining into grea trunk lines and competitive zea having been thus destroyed they have not been liberal in exten sions but have got all the busi ness they could without regard to the convenience of the people who produce their freight and who patronize them The entire system is capitalized at about 60175 per mile of which 29970 is stock and 30205 is bonded in debtedness Yet they manage to pay dividends that tempt cap ital to invest and the capitalists are so well pleased with their i vestments that they are quite independent in their ways of con ducting their business This is one of the causes that brought the Interurban Electric Roads into existence Now for the corn parison The Interurban roads are capitalized at 2000000 per mile and under They are operated at 5 per cent less cost in the nature of the difference in the method of applying power and for other reasons They make business by stops where the steam roads could not afford to stop they run more frequently over their lines at the same or less cost and are better patronized by passengers They are paying in vestments when they run parallel to the steam roads even Where they have all the business they should pay three or four times as much as the steam road- on account of the difference n capitalization and also On ac count of the smaller cost of maintenance and of operation at the same rate of charges but the uniformly charge less for hot freight and passenger service These statements account for th fact that the Interurban road have prospered and that they are peopleTherethe cost pf Interurban Railways To properly construct the roadbed bridges ties and rails costs quite as much as steam roads cost For the overhead work twenty per cent may be added to the cost So when a man has 1000 in the capital stock of an Interurban road capitalized at 2000000 all other things being equal it is a far better inves- ment than a thousand dollars inat the capital stock of any other sort of a road capitalized at 60 175 per mile for it has if properly built great r intrinsic value greater earning capacity and le fictitious debt to carry But apart from all these things convenience the uptodate fac ities and the increase of values all lands along the line of such a road should lead people of ordinary intelligence and of even moderate aspirations to invest in such an enterprise And let our people understand that sometimes selfishness overreaches itself thatithe same without thirhelp and ha ye itthatfound themselves left on the side County Convention Called In accordance with the call for a State Convention published elsewhere in this paper the Dem ocrats of Adair county will meet in mass convention at the court in Columbia

all the ad jacent counties and trading was brisk throughout the day Quite a number of mules and horses changed hands and the Master Commissioner solu several tracts of land Jockey street was alive from early in the morning until late in the afternoon several of the jockeys making three and four trades during the day The merchants and otherbusi ness men were kept busy waiting upon trade An interesting suit has been filed in the Russell circuit court by a Mrs Per kins and a Mrs Hadley two illegitimate children of the late Dr AlI Jackman who died several months ago leaving an estate valued at about 20000 The two women above mentioned sue for the whole estate claiming that such a contract existed between their mother and Dr Jackman Able counsel have been employed on both sides and the case will be fought to a finish It is our understanding that there does not exist a written contract but the plain tiffs claim that they can prove their rights to the estate in controversy The

friends hope that he may regain his strength and that there are many more years in store for him While writing upon this subject a News man states that himself and Mr N M Tutt called at the Stewart home last Thursday afternoon and were agreeably surpris ed to find Mr Stewart much better than had been reported After spending an half hour very pleasantly Miss Sallie invited us to take a look at her straw berry bed before leaving The plants are young but we venture the asser tion there is not a clearer bed in Colum bia nor one that bids fair to be more productive Since Mr Stewart has been

Circuit Court for the murder of John Miller and was tried found guilty and sentenced to hanged Thereafter lie was hange- under the judgment of the court by Young E Hurt who was then the sheriff of the county John Miller had been a soldier himself and had only a short time previous to his death returned from the army and was residing with his father on the farm where Dr Tink Miller now lives A body of Federal soldiers were encamped at Co 11mbia and on one night two of them Green Johnson and Pack Motley went out on a chicken steaiing raid They went to the house of Gaither Miller and while engaged in raiding the coops made some disturbance when John Miller went out of the house to see what was the matter and when he a preached the coops he was shot an after lingering some hours died An alarm was immediately given and when in the night the officer in command the troops had them all aroused and th roll called it was found that the only one absent was Green Johnson On the next day an investigation was had before the co u r ts an when Pack Motley was calledas a witness he told the story of the crime and charged the murder upon Johnston Johnston was afterward arrested Fcntress county Tennessee by the fa mous mountain detective Jo Taylor and returned to the jail in this county and tried for the crime which resulted as stated above Under the gallows and in the presence of the crowd gathered to witness the hanging Johnston called Pack Motley to him and charged upon him the crime of killing Miller John ston at the same time declared his innocence of the crime and stated that he was going to die for the crime of Motley This scene of course under the circumstances made a profoun- sensation Shortly after the hanging of Johnston a story was told by one to the effect that Pack Motley ha sickened and died and that on his deathbed he made a confession that he stead of Johnston shot and killed ler and that Johnston was an innocent man This story gained in circulation until it was told all over this county and other counties adjoining and is toI the present time almost universally believed and has doubtless saved a Brea many murderers from the death penalty It is not known whether Pack Motley is yet alive or not but it is certainly known that Motley was still alive and well for more than twenty years after this story of his death and confession had been circulated all over this county Thcfact of Johnstons guilt was most clusively shown upou the trial and tha he was certainly guilty beyond all cavil in spite of his declaration of innocence at the time he was hung John Mille- made a dying declaration in which he stated that when he approached the chicken coop a very little mana mere boy in statureran away and as he ran discharged his pistol straight up into the air and that a tall dark faced ma nI remained at the coop and shot him The mother of John Miller who was stand ing looking on from the door of the dwelling house made the same state meat Motley was a very small man a mere boy in stature while Johnston was a taU dark faced man Motley stated that when he saw John Mlle approaching he ran and discharged his pistol in the air and that Johnston mained and shot Miller Motley return ed to the camp and to his company while Johnston sled at once adding the crime of desertion from the army to his crime of murder By this story of the death and confession of Motley has ever made such a profound impression upon the public is one of those unaccountable things with which we meet now and then It could not be believed by anyone knowing the facts in the case even if he had made such a fession It would be apparent that heI had told as great a falsehood as Joh ston did on the gallows Mrs Berry Smith of near Greensburg was instantly kiHed last Saturday morning by the a cidentaldischarge of a shotgun n the hands of her 15yearold son As we received the information the young man had started hunting and as he passed out the door of the house the gun

If to one man there were as signed the task of smoking this affair the stump would be thrown away only after about 400000 years of pArsistont puffing day and nightIf annum output of domes tic cigars were to be made into one long agar of the usual diame tAr there would be produced a weed that would go 18 times around the world at the equator Our cigarette crop would make a single cigarette 130000 miles in length If ten cigarettes be tak en as the average daily consumption of each cigarette smoker in the country it is evident that some 800000 Americans habitual ly use tobacco in that form We smoke and chew about 140 000 tons of tobacco a year and about 70000 pounds of snuff is disposed of either by nose or dip ping In the North one rarely sees the indulgence in lappee and macoaboy but in

hi in the introduction and passrge of a rule requiring the recognition of the delegates holding prima facie cre en tils in effecting the temporary organization of the State convention It simply amounts to the reading of the riot act to Chairman Young and was th result of his intemporate not to sa vicious declaration that he would recognize any delegation sent by Mayor Grainger and the Louisville city administration even though the delegates b regularly and properly chosen If Chairman Young persists in his course and determination to make trouble at the State convention hGwill not be permitted to open that convention a custom more worthy of a breach than observance heretofore shown the Chair man of the Executive Committee The committee can and will choose another of its members to perform that duty The bossism of Chairman Young is of a very clumsy character His interference during the campaign came near being fatal to the party in both Lexing ton and Louisville He may be a
