has been placed on the square for the purpose of building a band stand over the puplic well on the Court House square We are for the Bandhave been for it from its birth to date but this move does not appear to be desir able from the standpoint of the public good he well is not the place for the stand While the members of the Band would keep the premises in order so far as they could yet they could not pre vent a crowd from collecting From a sanitary view it cannot be justified and the standpoint of beauty it would be a failure Why not fix the balcony of the Court House That would put the Band on high footing and it de serves the best in the town BARN BURNED Last Friday afternoon a barn belong ing to Mr W H Flowers near Bliss was burned destroying a fine lot of hay corn oats farming utensels of every description and one valuable horse The loss is estimated at 900 with no insurance The barn was hear Mr Flowers residence and it is sup posed that it caught from a spark from the chimney of the house When the fire was first discoved it was well un der way and every effort possible was made to release and save all the live stock but impossible to do so Two were left to the ravages of the flames but one made its escape which in some way is unknown and unexplainable by its owner Another barn near by con taining much feed and stock barely es caped it fired twice but was extin guished Fortunately Mr Flowers was ready to respond on first notice of the fire as he was on the puny list and unable for field work Due to his pre Ngence the stock excepting 1 horse and the other barn and its contents were saved As we understand it the insur ance on the barn that burned had expired a short time ago SUCCESS ASSURED Since the Standard Hardwood Lum ber Co installed their

It is said that the man had a dispute over a boundry line and had been quarreling for quite a while when Lanis Barger a son took up the quarrel and tried to cut Newby with a knife Newby caught young Barger and was holding him to prevent any further use of the knife when the elder Barger it is alleged used the ax The assailant were arrested and waived an examining trial and were held under 500

recorded beats any period of a like time since the opening of the house at thiS point GIVE WAY GENTLEMEN We are informed that the only hin derance in the building of the Green county pike to the Adair county line as heretofore mentioned is that three or four people refuse to give the right of way through their farm into Greens burg In view of their own interests in view of the public good the advance ment of Greensburg and Green county we cant see or understand why any one should take such a position There is not a doubt that every farm through which the pike would pass will be enhanced in value from 25 to 100 per per cent Those standing in the way of this enterprize evidently are block ing their own interests as well as the welfare of their entire section trust that all these troubles will disapI- pear when the prosposition is viewed from its real worth by those holding up the concessions needed for its speedy settlmentI Editor News Of what consequence are some mens opinions any

bring some of our own citizens into disrepute by telling a malicious lie on them for some thing that never existed but what they would have uninformed people believe is the truth- I have no respect for a hypocrite who will practice this kind of a thing on his fellowman and he is not entitled to any just consideration from men who have a fair and impartial regard for their business and social in

our roads and they need work very bad Let each overseer work his section at least 4 days this Spring and that will leave two days for repairing the roads in the fall getting them ready for winter If any overseer has a road that needs redistricting or is lapped over on another section if he will let me know it I will try to remedy it and if any overseer or citizen knows of any section or piece ofI road that needs changing and will let me know it I will see what can be done in the matter I hope every over seer will use as many plows and teams as he can on his road the work is done much faster and better with plows than by hand Each overseer working the roads nearest Columbia should work his section at once as these are the sec tions that have suffered most during the winter and need repairing the worst I suppose there will be no public money expended on the road this summer andI for that reason we will haveto work it the better by hand Jo N CONOVER- S A C R MALONE LOSES A

there was nothing more of a startling nature took place in his history until his difficulty with Logan Bomar Logan itl some manner became indebted to Melvin in the sum of sixty cents the debt was due and unpaid and there was no offset against the same Melvin like most boys in the country was short of funds and he appealed to Lo gan to pay him what he was owing Logan turned a deaf ear and an empty r pocket to all Melvins intreaties until forbearance ceased to be a virtue and lie resolved to have that money or blood He would collect that money or die in attempt Accordingly he armed him self with a shotgun a murderous knife a club and a pocket full of rocks and 1 sailed forth on his murderous errand r Logan lived in his immediate neighbor hood and the journey was not a long one Melvin went unattended by anybody except his faithful arms He found several colored men at Logans house the brethren and friends that had gathered in his defense Melvin walked up in front of the colored domicile and in thundering tones demanded the surrender of the whole outfit and especially the sixty cents Logan re plied that he intended to pay him the sixty cents at the earliest opportunity J but at that time he was without the means to do so but if Melvin would give shim a little time he would pay the full amount with interest Melvin replied that he had heard that same tale so ofEen that it was worn threadbare and he would listen to it no longer Melvin began to brandish his arms and the colored party retreated into the house and barred the door Melvin got glimpse of Logan through the win dow and opened a volley with his shot gun and set the bed on fire and raised a terrible consternation among the fe male portion of the family and by the use of much water the flames were subdued and the bed saved Logue sent his brother Dud out with a flag of truce to confer with Melvin but Melvin misjudging the nature of his ere rand clubbed him and felled him to the ground Melvin then withdrew his forces and everything became quiet When he in a short time returned aunt Winnie Logans mother came to the door and paid the sixty cents and everything became quiet Melvin went home hap py in the possession of his money but the happiness did not long continue Logue swore out a warrent against Melvin charging him with shooting with intent to kill assault and battery trespass breach of the peace misde meanor and all the crimes known to the I i catalog and he was promptly arrested I and placed under bond to appear before Esquire of the Harmony precinct for trial When the court convened Mel vin was on hand the County Attorney jIwas tnere to prosecute The defendent took charge of his own case He plead not guilty and the trial began The Commonwealth had two witnesses Hawk Morrison and Dud Bomar The Court after briefly refering to the sta lutes demanded of the prisoner his flame Melvin White your honor Well rfr Melvin White you have been fotch- beforema charged with all the crimes they could bring agin you now have you anything to say why the judgment of this court should not be pronounced agin you Melvin told him to proceed with the trial Mr Hawk Morrison was sworn and deposed as follows He was at Logues on the morning of the difficulty and Melvin came trying to collect sixty cents that he said Logue owed him He had a gun a big knife a club and a rock in each coat pocket Logue and us all run into the house shut the door and fastened it to keep Melvin from getting in and Melvin he seed Logue through the window and shot at him and sot the bed afire and we uns was skered and put the bed out Melvin then went away and in a little bit he cum back What did he go away for asked the Attorney I lowed he went after weepens Then Logues mother lowed shed pay Melvin and then Melvin he seemedsatisfied Dud Bomar was then examined Mr Bomar said the lawyer tell this court what you know about this fight Well there wernt any fight Melvin is a very clever feller and was just mad Did not Melvin shoot at your brother Logue Yes but Melvin was just mad Mel vin didnt mean any harm Did he set the bed on fire Yes but Melvin did not aim to do that he shot at Logue and he missed Logue and

NewsI We are infomed through a reliabl source that iPnlnmVun has backed square down on her proposition to- build her share of the pike to Green burg Our informant stated tha Greensburg has raised her share of the money and put it up to Columbia to do likewise when they Columbia refused to do anything of the kind Greens burg then told Columbia if Adair coun ty would build five miles of the pike Green county would built the remain ing portion Columbia gently informed them they could do nothing of the kinc and as a last resort Greensburg said they would build the entire line them selves as they were determined to have the pike This is the same Columbia that proposed to join Cumberland county in a pike Burkesville sent a committee to investigate their propo sition and it required about thirty minutes of said commitees time to dis cover that Columbia was more that willing to talk about pikes if someone else would build them but whet the time came to talk about the fi nances required for said undertaking Columbia was not there It seems to us that Bro Harris of The News and Bro Stapp of The Spectator have npl been treated right in the matter as they were given to understand that Co lumbia wanted pikes and her citizens were ready to help build them anc with this belief they published state ments which led to the matter being taken up by other towns that compell ed Columbia to show her hand The News is correct in the above statement Not only has Columbia flunked but the Adair Fiscal Court as well This body has decided that Adairs roads are good enough and con fidentally we expect they will build a wall around the county at the next termRest is the great restorer We tire our muscles by exercise and then rest to restore them yet a great many of us do not stop to think how

nay rent same at a fair rent value to anyone contracting with the county to nacademize road and that pay for said ent be deducted from amount to be paid him on contract Whereas the expense and

city of Columbia and the people ofj Adair and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoflice ao ccond claa mail matter WED APRIL J7s 1901e f Where are we drifting What will be the condition of our county a few years hence What will become of the spirit of ente prise that has gained footing in this part of the country within the last few years and gave us an unprecedented growth and cle velopment in town and counts Where is the person who can see a bright future for this sectic unless progressive steps are taken In justice to the powe that be in truth and in earnes there ought to be some plan devised by which the building of good roads should begin this year The recent session of the court evidently does not hold hope to those who want better roads it only tickles the fancy arid satisfies the ambition of the few who are content to live under present circumstances The Magistrates alone are responsible for this they are bound to realize the necessity of better roads they cannot fail to see that thei action does not meet the require ments that it is suicidal to take a backward step They ar bound to know that the public roads of this county are the mos formidable obstructions agains thrift and enterprise Whil some of them may feel gratifies over the defeat of the plans sub mitted by the Commercial Club while they doubtless pride in red cing the tax yet by and by the mistake will finally show up with compound interest It is tobe regretted that some mem bees of the Court could not rise above their prejudices prove broader than their districts and give to Adair county the firs thrilling impulse of substantia roadsinaugurate a system that in the course of a few years would have secured many mile of solid pike The Club labored hard to devise plans with no oth er motive than to best serve the entire county It had nc thought nor desire to dictate tc the Court and no member of i1 was asked or expected to do any thing to advance the proposition not consistent with an open hon est presentation of the plans and purpose The Fiscal Court of this county can not dodge the re sponsibility by accusing the club of unfair motives it can not satisfy the people by wiping out the tax and leaving the roads almost impassible The Court injustice to the reputation of Adair county in the face of most urgent needs and in obedience to the desire of the people ought to reconvene itself take up the road question alone and estab lish a system that will add to the assets of this county each year If we could build 6 miles a year 10 years would soon pass and hand over to the people 60 miles of macadam road The Club dill stand hands off or give its assistance Read the proposition submitted by ifche Club Figure pu what would accomplish in 10 years then figure it for 20 years It you find it defective suggest a better plan The Fiscal Court of Knox county has ordered the building ofI several bridges The people of this county want better roads They are willing to be taxed to get them Who wants a wall placed around the Court House Clinton County wants better roads and the Fiscal Court of that county made a road levy of 25 cents to the 100 the legal limit Should the town council follow the example of the Fiscal Coui the public square would be a mud hole the streets become in pass ble the lights cease tc burr decay follow and tax be reduced cOinty111asbuilding of macadam roads and Knox county joins in Where is lovely progressive Adair Everybody in Adair count ought to make arrangments to visit Columbia when that wall is built It will probably be finish ed before the roads get impassi ble next Winter That is if it is built in 1907IThe Hart County Fiscal CourtI has decided to start the corporIatenearly every direction Did you ever think that the court house would be walled in- Have you ever counted the cost Do you know any reason why it should be done The Columbia Commercial Club did not present the plan and did not ask for its buildingIThe Fiscal Court of Pulaski county has taken steps to have a 250000 bond issue ordered by a vote of the people to be used in building pikes in that county and it is stated that the proposition will winat the polls How much like Adair county The Fiscal Court at its last neeting knocked out the road tax refused to build a bridge at a very important crossing made no provisions for bettering the public roads discredited the motives and impugned the efforts of the Commercial Club but it avored a stone wall built around the Court House Many of the people will not get to visit the Jamestown Exposition Many will never see the old fort with its massive walls but every citizen in Adair ought to come to Columbia and bring his wife sons and daughters to view the court house with its strong wall of stone around it and adorned with an iron fence on top when it is built The Legislature of Tennessee has taken an advance step but doubtless a wise one one that will result in great good to that ommonwealth It created a public road commission and appropriated 1000000 to build roads That body of men cant claim kinship with the Adair County Fiscal If there are any reasons why the Court House should be walled in we would like to hear them If there has been a demand for the spending of the public money for such a thins we would like to know from wh nceitc- ame Adair couYitYwill present

will succeed and if so it will start the ball to rolling Mr James Garnett has been selected as a member of theI State Democratic Campaigne Committee filling the place of Judge Robins who retired from
