former Kentuckian and city editor of the Helena World on Sunday last appears to be the victim of too great zeal on his own part to divert suspicion from himself Save for acts done in this spirit it is not likely that the crime would have been so soon laid at his door Scott was killed in a district made up for the most part of low dives near the Mississippi levee For years this district has been the blight of Helena a very hot bed of crime It is charged that under the old police system the keepers and inmates of these resorts thrived with official indulgence Carruth lately deposed from the po lice force was for a year a patrolman on this beat intimately acquainted with all the resorts and according to report spending much of his own time in the company of these people PHONED TO BARTENDER On the night of the murder Scott was the last member of the World staff to leave the office He remained at his desk until 2 oclock on Sunday morning It has been learned that soon after midnight he talked by telephone with the night bartender of Newbys saloon the most notorious of the resorts in the red light district which is oper ated in connection with anegro board houseUpon the World office Scott went to Newbys place An uncon firmed report says that he was sum moned for the purpose of talking over a threatened campaign for the closing of the dives He was seen in the place by several persons just before his deathA report as yet only partly substantIatedsays that upon Scotts arrival some one in the saloon tried to reach Carruth by telephone succeeding after several attempts and saying to Carruth Your man is here WATCHMAN HEARS SHOTS After that the story is a blank until 230 when a merchants watchman named Bailey walking his rounds up town heard the shots fired which killed Scott It is said that pistol shooting is of frequent occurrence in the levee district at all hours of the night so Bailey gave no particular heed Meet ing Charles Sanders Deputy County Clerk he stood for a time with the latter decussing the matter The two were together for from twenty minutes to half an hour when Carruth joined them Greeting San ders he invited him to drink Nearby saloons were open but Carruth insisted upon going to Newbys place On the sidewalk before the door of this saloon Carruth himself found the body of Scott unconscious shot through the neck and head- Carruths first exclamation was God Charlie Im glad you happened to be with me They might have said that I did it- BODY IN LAMPS GLARE The body lay in full glare of an arc lamp which hung at a street corner only a few yards away Many persons were in the saloon when the shooting occured The night bartender declared that he went to the door when he heard the shots and looked carefully up and down the street but saw nothing The body was within half dozen steps of where he stood From the time of the shooting until the time of Carruths arrest the ac cused man was continually haunting the scene of the murder making Painstaking inquiry concerning every step of evidence that might hint at suspicion His interest was acute Three times within the week preced ing Scotts death it is known that Car ruth deliberately sought a fight with him approaching him on the street with profane taunts and abuse and threatening to kill if the chance was ever offered At each of these times Scott avoided trouble by keeping silence and walking away NEGRO MEETS FLEEING SLAYER oA ncgrias been jicmd iwbo avers r that directly after the shooting he- met a man running in the darkness along the levee carrying a pistol and crying excitedly I said Id kill him and now Ive done it Since his dismissal from the police force in June following the Worlds graft exposures Carruth has repeatedly declared his personal hatred for Scott talking freely ofvengeance Carruth is a man of about thirty Formerly he was employed as pound officer of the department gaining the rank of patrolman only about a year ago Beyond a bare denial of his guilt he will make no statement feveriheat people city are outspoket partisans of the World and its campaign for better gov ernment The investigation relating to the murder will be pushed with the utmost vigor and another effect of this crisis is undoubtedly to be a complete wiping out of the dive district LATERBilly Archdale the bar keeper for Newby has also been ar rested charged with the crime and seven negroes are held as witnesses REMAINS ARRIVE L The remains of Mr J McScott who was assassinated at Helena Ark last Sunday morning week reached Colum bia Thursday morning follpwlng about daylight They werj immediately con veyed to the Garnett graveyard on Glensfork and there interred after a short discourse delivered by Eld Z T Williams a large circle of relatives and friends being present The body was well preserved and ap parently had not moved in the casket from the time it left Helena The wife and friends of the dead highly appreciate the kindness manifested by the deceased Arkansas friends As is generally known Mr Scott was City Editor of the Helena Daily World when the assassin fired the fatal shots but the particulars of the crime have not reached here It is known that a local election was on hand and that the World had been fighting hard for one faction yet a dispatch to the Little Rock Gazette states that the as sassination it is believed did not grow out of the municipal election and there was actually no clue to the perpetrator of the foul deed It further stated that every effort would be made to run down the criminal the whole city of Helena being aroused Mr Scott was evidently a valuable man on the World as much caution was taken in preparing the body for shipment it arriving here in a copper lined casket The deceased was born in Cumberland county 38 years ago When he was 12 years old his parents removed to Texas where young Scott lived until he became a citizen of Adair county eight or nine years ago His father and mother are dead He has one sister living in Texas and his wife and little son reside within three miles of Columbia To the bereaved this paper extends its sympathy LATERParticulars of the

bf the late Sebastian Bell who was a very prominent man of Met calf county A f GREAT IS TOY FAITH The above was Rev J F Claycombs text at Presbyterian Church Sunday morningAlthough there was a small congrega tion present possibly on account of the intense heat of the atmosphere yet that did not lessen the interest of the Rev Claycombs sermon at the Presbyterian church Sunday fore noon The speaker was not at his best because of having been ill during the past week but he delivered a discourse that would have beeu a credit to a man of more mature years and experience in the Gospel field Rev Claycomb handled his subject in a manner which was plain and point ed and his conclusions were the views of a deep thinker a sound reasoner and a logical interpreter of the meaning of the Scriptures- He is zealous in the work of the min- Istry and a young man should at all times receive encouragement and a hearty God speed in whatever calling he may have chosen in life F McL Mr Tim Collins and wife visited ar their old homestead in the Glensfork country from Saturday morning until Sunday afternoon Mr Collins reports good health and good crops in that com munity He also says there is an un

up a city is for each and every man in it not to strive to rend and to tear it down When every man in town is doing well do not try to tear him down All the res idents of a town are partners not opponents In all likelihood the more business done by youri rival the more you will do Every gentleman who treats his customers honestly courteously and fairly will get his sharei and the more business that can be secured by united efforts the better it will be for all When a town ceases to grow it commences to die and the more the people try to kill off each other in their business and goodname the more rapidly will utter ruin come to all Stand together for advancement of every citizen If a man shows ability to prosE per do not pull him back with jealousy or weigh him down with cold

BROTHERHOOD It is not possible to create a true and genuine brotherhood up on any theory of the baseness of human nature nor by a commu of belief in abstract propositions as to the nature of Deity the number of His persons or other theorems of religious faith nor by the establishment of a system of association for mutual relief and by which in consideration of certain payments made regularly each becomes entitled- to a certain stipend in case of sickness to attention then and to the ceremonies of burial after death There can be no genuine brotherhood without mutualregard mutualgcharity and mutual allowance for faults and failings It is those only who learn habitually to think better of each other to look habitually for the good that is in each other and expect allow for and overlook the evil who can be brethren one of the other in any true sense of the work Those who gloat over the failings of one another who think each other to be naturally base and low of a nature in I which the evil predominates and excellence is not to be looked for can not be even friends and much less brethren Mert Pike h i lJ Will give you comfort on a sweltering day When hot and weary it imparts vigor

job to do right when every body else is do right in fact it takes hard work to do wrong when all our neighbors are doing right Just so we find it hard to do right when we see every body else going in the wrong direction But kindreader had you ever thought that in times of this kind when it seems that all the people are proned to do wrong is the very time above all others when we should do the right By doing right during such periods we add stars to our crown and show forth more vividly that true character which true men and women only possess Any one can do right when it requires no sacrifice but it takes courage to overcome difficulties- to make sacrifices to oppose the powerful in sin to take the straight path during times of dark clouds and dangerous storms as well as during times of sunshine and peace we repeat he who does the right in spite of these things is the true man character states Itmembersing teachers and the only homebuilders who have the approval of God are made In order that the future rulers in both church and state shall be men of moral courage possessed with that dare do the right in spite of all opposition spirit we as home builders must DO RIGHT

well as the cleanest of dresses and collars to have becomingly ar ranged hair and ever to meet her other half at the door with a kiss The house must always be smiling in its orderly way children ditto baby no exception to the general rule Now the great wonder is has the husband nothing to do in this matter of making home happy To be sure he may do a great deal towards making a home He may build the house and fur nish it in princely style He may furnish an abundance of food for the table buy any amount of fine clothing for the family need Yet he is cross and surly as a snap ping turtle or unsocial or care less in his habits or unsympa thizing with his wife and little ones All that the wife can do will not make the home an agree able one Neither can a wife be happy with a husband who is addicted to finding fault with his bread and butter She may try ever so hard to please him yet when he sits down to mealsshe lives in constant fear that some portion of the food will not suit his

an actor of genius and versatility he cannot be readily spared With him missing from this great field it may be said that there is no other actor to choose and reveal to lovers of the drama in America
