THURMAN of Washington county is a date for Circuit Judge in the district comp sing the counties of Green Taylor Marion and Was Ington subject to the action of the Democratic party lION C JJ METCALFE On the 25th of this month t Democrats of the 11th district willmeet at Somerset to nominate a candidate for Congress We are informed that the Ho- C W Metcalfe of Pineville will accept the nomination if it is tendered him There is no better man than Metcalfe He is a lawyer of ability and reputation a Democrat of the Jeffersonian stripe a forceful speaker and would make a splendid canrIidate and if elected an ideal Congressman whose abitity would be re- Cognized by his colleagues Democrats nominate Metcale and with him on the stump against either Edwards or Hunter you would not be ashamed of him The time has come when every progressive citizen of Columb realizes that water works are ba ly needed not merely as a matter of convenience but the health and business interests of the the town would be materially affected by a good supply of water un del reasonable pressure We doI not mean to say the wells in town are all bad but it does not take an expert to determine that those on the square are not as good andwholesome as we would like Whether the water is healthy or not is a question in the minds ofI many users but we all know that the wells are not satisfactory in many respects Leaving off the purity and quality of the wa ter or accepting the statement that both are sufficient then we say that from the standpoint convenience the people of Colu m bia should have water works A good system would place wa in every business house and the homes would soon be fitted with modern plumbing with b tubs and all the conveniences a comforts of pure water Fr a business view we can aff water works because it would give protection against fire and would reduce insurance rates which would be to the advantage of every property owner and busi ness man in the town There are several sufficient supplies of pure water within easy reach of the c town which could be utilized at a small cost We need the water works we have the elevations and the water and there are no reasons why this important prog- essiver step should not be made It can be accomplished for a few thousand dollars and would be a profitable business to the oWners We suggest that the town put in the plant There is no reason as we can see why a bonded indebtedness for this thrg town should not desire the full ownership there are several citi zens who would take a part of the stock Gentlemen of the Council what think you 1 Citi zens of Columbia speak out on this proposition The News of fers you a chance to expres- yourselves The Democratic convention o the Fifth Appellate district con vend in Lexington on the 4th and split wide open It is not our business to say who is righ- nor who wrong but it seems to us that Chairman W A Lee in attempting to secure advantages for his choice in forming the temporary organization went far beyond the limit of fair prece dents in Democratic conventions and teachings There is no way better than the old one fair and square and play no favorites It is to be regretted that any DeI ocrat will not submit to and in candiIdategene struggle The day has come when many men will not meek ly bow to party lash and support nominees and men who aid in securing nominations for their friends through corruptmeasures Every man wants to be treate fair whether he is willing to give such treatment or not Su methods such conventions will ahen yea The argument in the case of W P

petition the amended answer and the demurrers each section by section discuss ed the law as applied to each par agraph and in some instances sustained the demurrers over ruling them in others The re suIt of his decision as viewed byI an outsider is that if the allega tions in Bretts petition are tru he has a cause of action but the Railway Company can prove what is contained in its answer

succumbed to the inevitable and passed over the river of deceased was born and reared in Adair county about thirtyfive years of her life having been spent in Columbia When quite a young woman she made a profession of her faith in Christ united with the Presbyterian Church and liv ed a consistent Christian life until the end came Mrs Nell was a victim of a cancer and everything that medical skill and loving friends could do failed to bring about relief Last year she accom panied her husband to Hot Springs Ark with the hope that the water at that noted resort would be beneficial but like all other tried remedies it fail ed to give relief Soon after returning from the Springs she took her bed and gradually grew worse until relieved of her sufferings Mrs Nell was twice married her first husband being Capt Geo W Nell CountyICourt Clerk and who was a practicing attorney at the time of his demise About twenty years after the death of her first husband she was married to Hon Geo Nell who survives her with two children by her first husband Mr John Nell who lives in the West and Mrs Mary Russell wife of Dr C M Russell this city The funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church Friday morning at 10 oclock conducted by the pastor Rev W C Clemens many relatives and sympathizing friends being present The interment was in the city cemetery The match game of baseball between Columbia and Greensburg played at this place last Saturday afternoon was the most interesting contest ever wit nessed by the citizens of Columbia and terminated in a victory for the home team the scores standing 4 to L Three of the scores for Columbia were made by M C Winfrey and one by Ben Jef fries We did not get the name of the Greensburg player who was cred ited with the one score won by his side Dr R Y Hindman did fine work at first base putting out four or six men Dr Eras Barger of Esto pitched the game for Columbia and as a ball twist er he is hard to down He is a swift pitcher Ben Jeffries being the only member of Columbia Club who can catch him Tim Cravens Geo Mont gomery and Ewing Stults did fine field ing catching a number of high flyers Greensburg has a fine team and their playing was not to be snubbed at Their pitcher in the person of Vaughan Ward is good and their catcher Taylor Cox is next co Ben Jeffries The bat ting on both sides was poor There was never a more orderly game played in Columbia the Greensburg boys con ducting themselves in the most becom ing manner receiving courteous and gentlemanly treatment from the home team Mr M Rey Yarberry umpired the game and we believe that he was fair in all his decisions There were two very close decisions in which he de cided in favor of Columbia but had they been lost to the home team Greens burg could not have won the game The citizens of Columbia and the pea pre of Adair county generally will be glad to learn that Dr W F Cartwright of Albany will soon become a resident of this place The Doctor was

the penitentiary for life from Adair county eight years ago for killing Dan Kidd has been paroled Kidd was maudling drunk could scarcely walk at the time he was killed and Crockett should not have been paroled John Crockett was with Jim at the time Kidd was murder ed and if our recollection is correct the firstshot was fired by him He was also given a life sentence The deed was murder and the verdict of the jury should not have been interferred with If you will come to the Columbia Fair you will meet your friends if you go to St Louis you will meet strangers If you come to Columbia you
