THE GALLOWS That is the Aim of Wife Murderer Veronai Flener He is Trying to Kill Himself by Starvation in the Butler County Jail Bowling Green Ky May 10 Verona Flener convicted of the mur der of his wife in Butler county last July and sentenced by the Butler Circuit court to be hanged on Friday May 27 is trying to defeat the gal lows by starving himself to death Flener within the past fiftyfive days has eaten nothing except three pounds of wafers His body is wasted and emaciated until he is now little more than a living skeleton He is at present the only prisoner in the Morgantown jail and is allowed the full freedom of the prison He is unable to sleep of nights and the greater part of his time is spent in pacing up and down the narrow cell in which he is confined It is thought probably that Flener will not live to be executed unless be takes nutri tious food The case of Flener is familiar to all He killed his wife in cold blood by stabbing her with a knife last July He afterwards attempted to commit suicide but was prevented from carrying out his plan by his son who wrested the weapon from him after he had been badly injured The feeling against Flener was so bitter in Butler county that a guard was placed around the jail to prevent mob violence A few days later he was brought to the county jail at Bowling Green for safe keeping where he was confined until taken back to Morgantown fur trial His defense was emotional insanity but the jury after a short deliberation fixed his punishment at death The execution of Flener will be the first legal hang ing that has occurred in Butler coun ty in forty year- sSTRINGENT METHODS Farmers Resolve to Boycott the Auction llouse5 Fine to Sell Tobacco at Auction That stringent methods are to be used by the farmers of Davless coun

expense of an appeal to the United States Supreme Court by James B Howard from the recent judgment of the Court of Appeals of Kentucky affirming the sentence of imprisonment for life in his case Vft

assume jurisdiction it will require about 2500 to prepare the record so as to present the case to the court We have investigated the question of Howards financial condi tion He has on hand about 250 lo psi cent of the amotrritrequlred and unless the balance is raised with in the next ten days the record can not be prepared in time and he will be removed to the penitentiary with in the next thirty

late one It certainly Is this and yet there are advantages in what we see If only we have looked and worked ahead and so prepared as we best might for what has come One great advantage to be found In this lateness is that the fruit trees have not budded out as they would have done had we had what is called an early spring The probabil ities now are judging by what is seen in much of Kentucky that weave going to have a good fruit year Another great lesson from the backwardness of the seasona backward ness due not a little to a fall of rain that has kept the ground so wet that comparatively little plowing has been doneIs the lesson that more fall plowing should take place when this is accomplished there follows an en richeulng and mellowing of the ground not otherwise possible At the same a AjjersThis i Stop it or you will soon be bald Give your hair someIAyers Hair Vigor ing will stop the hair will j Hair Vigor grow and the scalp will be clean and healthy Why be satisfied with

the Protection contemplated by the schedules of the Dingley Tariff law Accordingly the domestic interest are encouraged to hope that the investigation now being conducted abroad by the Government will result in putting a stop to the flagrant under valuations which for years have prevailed at leading ports of the United States Several hun 1 dred invoices of a prominent Import- Ing firm have been

assumption that if we throw down the bars in this country and let all sorts of foreign made goods in free to compete with Ameri can labor other countries will make similar laws and permit our goods to enter free Of course this is a pre posterous assumption but it is not difficult to account for when we recall that it was fastened upon the Demo cratic party in the South at a time when the South imagined couldnt do anything but grow cotton which it supposed it would have to send out of that region to be manufactured This section of course was considering not the interests of the whole countrybut merely its own interests Then too It was jealous of the Northern indus tries and preferred to patronize the foreigner Once this was fastened upon the party this party was true to the tradition PS Mr Cleveland says it ought to bi and consequently tell a good many years behind the times In this as in other things Hence the party became committed to this dogma or a Tarifl for revenue

thI matter as unAmerican and subver save ot the Monroe doctrine G Cleveland wants a brief platform i he cannot get a traditional one and Gov Dockery of Mississippi offers him this Hod durn it which seems to meet the requirement admirably The Democrats want a more thorough j investigation of the Postoflice scandal l It may be because they are so elated over the success they had In that In

DAUGHTER rv I EF RANK w R STOCKTON J LryTIAbt liwf br lJ tel tuABCo New Cur CHAPTER XII l I CAPTAIN BONNET MIRAL HKCOMES AN AD HE Hclnget IM Ito the coast of the caro Unas and Virginia and perhaps even farther north if her wicked fortune should favor her The growing com merce of the colonies offered great prizes In those days to the piratical cruisers which swarmed up and down the Atlantic coast To He over for a time off the coast of Charlestown was Capt Bonnets Immediate object and to get there as soon as possible was almost a necessity The crew of desperate scoundrels whom he had gathered together had discovered that their captain knew nothing of navigation or the management of a ship and there were many of them who believed that It Black Paul had chosen to turn the vessels bows to the coast of South America Bonnet would not have known that they were not sailing northward Thus they had lost all respect for him and their conduct was kept within boundF only by the cruel punishments which he Inflicted for disobedience or gen eral bad conduct and which were ren dered possible by the dissensions and bad feelings among the men them selves one clique or faction being always ready to help punlsli another Consequently the landsman pirate would speedily have been tossed over board and the command given to another had It not been that the mor were not at all united in their opln ions as to who that other should be There was also another very good reason for Bonnets continuance In authority he was a good divider and so far had been a good provider If he should continue to take prizes and to give each man under him his fair share of the plunder the men were likely to stand by him until some good reason came for their changing their minds So with floggings and Irons on deck and below and with fair winds filling the sails above the Revenge kept on her way and In spite of the curses and quarrels and threats which polluted the air through which the stout ship sailed there was al ways goodnatured companionship wherever the captain Dlckory and Ben Greenway found themselves tor gethor There seemed to be no end to the questions which Bonnet asked about his daughter and when he had asked them all he began over again and Dlckory made answer as he had done before The young follow was growing very anxious at this northern voyage and when he asked questions they always related to the probability of his get ting hack to Jamaica with news from the father of Mistress Kate Bonnet The captain encouraged the hopes of an early return and vowed to Dick ory that he would stnd him to Span ish Town with a loUr to his daughter just as soon as an opportunity should show itself When the Revenge reached the mouth of Charles Town harbor she stationed herself there and lu four days captured three well laden mer chantmen two bound outward and one going In from England Thus all went well and with willing hands to Ulan her yards and a proudly strutting captain on her quarterdeck the pirate ship renewed her northward course and spread terror and mlle prizes even as far as the New England coast and If Dlckory had lead any doubts that the late reputable planter of Bridgetown had now baconio a veritable pirate ho had many oppor tunities of setting himself right Bon net seemed to bo rowing proud of his newly acquired taste for rapacity and cruelty Merchantmen were recklessly robbed and burned their crews and passengers even babes and womon being set on shore In some desolate spot to perish or survive the pirate cared not which anil if resistance were offered bloody ma acros or heartless drownlngs were almost sure to fol low and as his men coveted spoils and delighted In cruelty he satisfied them to their hearts content- I tell you Dlckory Charter saId he one day when you see my daugh tar 1 want you to make her under stand that I am a real pirate and not playing at tho business Shes a brave girl my daughter Kate anti what I do she would have me do well and not halfheartedly to make hor ashamed of mo And then there Is my hrother 1n law Dtlaplnlno I dont bellows that ho had a very high opinion of me when 1 was a plain farmer and planter and 1 want him to think bettor of me now A bold fearless pirate cannot ho looked upon with disrespect Hickory groaned in his heart that this man was the father of Kate Tho spirits of Diuliory rose very much as the bow of the Revenge was pointed southward Every stile that a the pirate vessel sailed broupljt him lIIessagclasafety and of his steadfast affection for her Indirectly the bringing of such a nessage and tho story of how the bearer brought It might have another effect which although he had no right to expect was never absent from Dlek orys soul This ardent young lover cwIcombedid not aepend upon reason If lovers reasoned too much It would be a sadI world for many of themiWhen the Revenge stopped In her progress towards the heavenly Island of Jamaica or at least that island which was the abode of an angel aullI anchored off Charles Town South Carolina Dlckory fumed and talked impatiently to his friend Ben Greenway Why a man even though he were a pirate and therefore of an avaricious nature should want more booty when his vessel was already crowded with valuable goods he could not imagine Dlckory did not know very much or care very much about the sea and Its commerce and some ships to be robbed soon made their appearance One was a large merchantman with a full car go and the other was a bark north ward bound in ballast The acquisi tion of the latter vessel put a new idea into Capt Bonnets head The Revenge was already overloaded and he deter mined to take the bark as a tender to relieve him of a portion of his cargo and to make herself useful In the busi ness of marooning and such trouble some duties Being now commander of two vessels which might in time increase to a fleet Capt Bonnets Ideas of his own importance as a terror of the sea in creased rapidly On the Revenge he was more despotic and severe than ever before while the villain who had been chosen to command the tender because he had a fair knowledge of navigation was informed that if he kept the bark more than a mile from the flag ship he would be sunk with the vessel and all on board The loss of the bark and some nun would be nothing compared to the maintenance of discipline quoth the planter pirate Bonnets ambition rose still higher and higher He was not content with being a relentless pirate bloody if need be but he longed for recognition for a position among his fellowterrors of the sea which should be worthy ot- a truly wicked reputation A pirate bold he would consort with pirates bold So he set sail for the gulf of Honduras then a great rendezvous for piratical craft of many nations If the father of Kate Bonnet had captured and burned u dozen ships and hadIforted every sailor and passen thereupon to walk a plank he would j not have sinned more deeply in the eyes of Dickory Charter than he did by tbus ruthlessly Inhumanly hard heartedly and altogether shamefully ignoring and pitilessly passing by tlun Island on which dwelt an angel his own daughter i But Bonnet declared to the man that it would now be dangerousI for him and his ship to approach the i harbor of Kingston generally the re port of British menofwar but In the waters of Honduras he could not tallI to find some quiet merchant ship by- which he could send a message to his I daughter Ay and In which and the I pirates eye glistened with parental I joy as this thought came into his mind genI tleman a to and to his good brotherinlaw Dela plaine So Dlckory was forced to be satisfied and even to admit that there might baI some good common s nie in these re i marls of that most uncommon pirate I Capt Bonnet I So the Revenge with her Blender I tailed southward through the fair West Indian waters and by the fair West Indian isles to Join herself to the piratical fleet generally to be found In the waters of Honduras CHAPTER XIII A GIRL TO TUB FRONT A HE Jays were getting very long at Spanish 4 Icl1on although there were no more hours of sunlight than tsar usual at the season and even the optimism of Dame Charter was scarce ly able to brighten her own soul much less that of Kate Bonnet who had al nios fnrjMittcn what it wus Jo be o- ptiwc Poor Mr Delaphilne whose- life had begun to cheer up wonderfully since the arrival of his niece and her i triumphant entry into the society of the town became more gloomy than he had been since the months which followed I the death of his wife Over and over did he wish that his brothcrln law Bonnet had long since been shut up in some place where his eccentrici ties could do no harm to his fellow creatures especially to his most lovely daughterMistress Kate Bonnet was not a girl to sit quietly under the tremendous strain which bore upon her Uncle she said I cannot bear It any longer I must do something But my dear he asked looking down upon her with infinite affection what can you do Vo are here upon j an immovable Island and your father Is sailing upon the sea nobody knows j where j 1 thought about It all last nightI said Kate and this is what 1 will du I will go to tho governor I will tcllI him all about my father I do think it will be wrong even to tell him urldgIIto take my father wherever 1 may liii him and to bring him here where it shall be decided what shall be dotty with him and I am sure the decision will be that ho must be treated as u man whoso mind Is not right and who should be put somewhere where he can have nothing to do with ships This was quite childish to Mr Dela plaine but for Kates dear sake ho treated her scheme seriously But tell me my dear said he how are you going to find your father and in what way can you bring him back here with you 7 The first thing to do said Kate is to hire a skip I know that my little property will yield me money enough for that As for bringing him back thats for me to do With my arms around his neck he cannot be a plradI captain And think of It uncle arms are not soon around his neck it may be the hangmans rope which will be there Mr Delaplalne was troubled fnrI more than he had Vet been His rowing niece bellowed that there was something which might be done for her father but he her practical uncle did not believe that anything could be done And even If this were possible he did not wish to do It If by sonic unheardof miracle his niece should be enabled to carry out her scheme she could not go alone and thoughts of sailing upon the sea and the dangersI from pirates storms and very terrible to the quiet merchant He could not encourage this nigntborn scheme of his nieceIBut there Is one thing I can do cried Kate and I must do It this very day I must go up to the governors house and I pray you uncle that you will go with meIIt was not half an hour after that Kate and her uncle entered the grounds of the governors mansion CHAPTER XIV THE GOVEHNOK OF JAMAICA HE governor of Jamaica was interested In the visit of Kate Bonnet whom he saw alone In a room adjoining the public apartments He had met her there two or three times before and had bees forced to admit that the young girls of Barbadoes must be pretty and piquant In an extraordinary degree But now she was different Her sor row had given her dignity and had added to her beauty She quickly told her tale and he started upright In his chair as heI heard It Do you mean he exclaimed that that pirate Is your father It amazes me The similarity of names did not strike me I never imagined any con nection between you and the captain of that pirate ship Now Kate was weeping The gov ernor did not attempt to console her Her sorrow was natural and it was her rightWhen she looked up again she spoke about what she had come to ask him for the authority to bring back her father wherever she might find him and to defend him from the attacks of all per sons whoever they might be until she reached Jamaica And then she told him how she would seek for her father on every sea The governor sat and pondered The father of such a girl should be saved from the terrible fate awaiting him if Andiyetthing It was to do To find a pirate a tierce and bloody pirate and bring him back unharmed to his daughters arms and to reasonable restraint He spoke earnestly What you pro pose he said you cannot do It would be impossible for you to find your father and If you did no matter who might be with you and no matter how successful you might be with him Iris crew would not let him go But there is one thing which might be done His majestys war vessels report at different stations I might send a dispatch to his majestys naval olllcers ordering them not to harm your father but to take him prisoner- I and to bring him here to be dealt with Kate sprang to her feet orderIi my father Ah sir your goodness Is great this is far more than I had dared to expect I beg you to be seated said the goy ernor and let me assure you that in offering to send this order I do no tin the least expect you to take ItI From my heart I thank you cried Kate give me the orders anlI will take them or I will= i Nay nay sold the governor such olllces are not for you but I ttlll give the matter my present attention Rely on me my dear young lady my order shall go by the very earliest opportunity Kate rose and thanked him warmly This is much to do your excellency for one poor girl she It is but little saidIernor and that With that he rose offered Kate his arm tumid conducted her to her uncle When Mr Delaplnlne was made ac quainted with the result of the Inter view bout his gratitude and surprise were great He comprehended far bet ter than Kate could the extent of the favor which the governor had offered to bestow It was Indeed extraordinary to commute what was really a sentence lof death against a notorious and dan gerous pirate for the sake of a beauti fill and pleading woman An idea shot through the ambitiousI The governor was a wl ower suet Kate before Was there any other lady on the island better fitted to pro side over the gubernatorial household But although a mini of high position could not wed the daughter of a pirate a pirate evidently of unsound 11111111I could be adjudged demented as he truly j was and thus the shadow of his crime be lifted from him This wits a greatI deal to think of in a very short but the good merchant did It and the i fervor of his thankfulness was greatly increased by his rapid reflections As they wereon their way homo Kates eyes were bright and her step lighter j than It had been of late Now uncle said she your know we shall not have to watt for any chance ship which may take the governors dispatch We shall engage a swift vessel ourselves by which the orders may be carried And uncle when that ship sails I must go IYou cried Mr Delaplalne That IBut remember undo cried Kate as likely that I shall meet my fathers ship as any other My father shall be brought here and the good gov himIhas led him KatesIthought them To look Into those sparkling eyes again was a joy of which he would not deprive himself if he could help it Suppose he should capture our yes sel she exclaimed what a grand thing it would be for him all unknow- Ing to spring upon our deck and instant ly be captured by me After that there would be no more pirates life for him When Dame Charter heard what had happened at the governors house and had listened to the recital of Kates glow ing schemes her eyes did not Immedi ately glisten with Joy If you go Mistress Kate said she In search of your father I go with you but I cannot go without my Dlckory It is full time to expect his return al though as he was to depend upon so many chances beforo he could come back his absence may with good rea son continue longer and I could not have him come back and find his mother gone no man knows where For in such knowI sailing cried I CHAPTER XV A QfKSTION OF ETIQLETTB ROUDLY sailed the Revenge and her attendant bark into the waters of Honduras Gulf and proudly stood Capt Stele Bonnet upon her quarter deck dressed In a handsome uniform which might have been that of a cap tain or admiral in the royal navy one hand caressed his ornate sword ldlt while the other was thrust into the bosom of his gilt embroidered coat A newly fashioned Jolly Roger In which the background was very black and the skull and crossbones ghastly white flew from his masthead Apart from a general desire to show himself n the ranks of his fellow pirates and to receive from them respect which was due to a man of his capa billties and general merits Stede Bon net had a particular reason for his visit to this port and for surrounding himself with all the pomp and clr cumstance of high piratical rank Ho had been informed that a great man a hero and eliot among his fellows in fact the dean of the piratical facul ty and known as Blackboard the most desperate and reckless of all the pirates of the daywas now here To meet this most important sea robber and to receive from him the hand of fellowship had been Bonnets dqslre and ambition since ho had heard that it was possiblejThe morning was advanced and the fReVenge was rolling easily at her anchorage but Bonnet was somewhat uncertain as to the next step he ought to taKH He wanted to see Blackbeard- as soon 1l3 possible but it would cor talnly be a breach of etiquette entirely inconsistent with his present position for him to go to see him He was the latest comer and thought It was the part of Blackboard to make the first visitPaul Bittern now came aft The men are getting very restless he said they want to go on shore Theyd till go If Id let em Capt Bonnet gave his big sailing master a lofty glare It I should let them you mean sir iam sorry I cannot break you of the habit of forgetting that I command this ship Well sir you may tell them that they cannot go I am expecting a visit from the renowned Blackboard now in this port and I wish to weN come him with all respect and a full crew Black Paul smiled disagreeably I will tell you sir that you cannot keep to these men on board much longer with the town of Belize within a row of half a mile Theyve been at sea too long for that Therell be mutiny sir If I go forward with that message of yours It will bo prudent to let sumo of thorn go ashore now and others later In the day I will go In tho IIrstI boat and see to It that tho men collie back with me And by the way It would not ho a bad thing If 1 touch at Blackboards vessel and inform him that you are hero I dont nttppogo ho knows thin Revenge nor her captain neither I t Bittern said Uonnot I Ice it very much I assure you that 1 am known from ono end of this coast to tho other and Copt flinch board is not an ignorant noon So you can go ashore and take some of the men stopping at Blackboard ship And by thin way 1 want you to go by that bark of ours said give her time old black Roger I used to lly I forgot to I send It to her and n man might as well not own and command two vessels ItIsot out in the longboat crowded with men ho stopped ut the bark hILl did not go too near for fear that sonic of the crew might jump Into his already overload ed boat You are to run up this rag cried Black Paul to Clip the follow III com maud and so saying ho handed up the old Jolly Roger on the blame of an oar Our noble admiral fears that if you do not that you may be captured by sonic of those good vessels lying hereaboutClip out with a laugh I will attend to the capture iou soon as I get out of reach of his guns witch ho will not dare to use hero I take It Hut I I HO HO UK CHIlilJ HIAlK ALL ANt WHERE UIU YOU tOMIi FROM AND WHAT ARE YOU DO ING HERE want you to know and him to know that woro not gain to stay on board and in sight of tho town If you go ashore so go we Stay where yo are till orders come to ye shouted Black Paul if ye want to keep tho cat off your backs And as ho rowed away tho men on the bark gavo him a cheer and proceeded to lower two boats j From In the i IIlw1Iyone or way to interfere with them until it was found out what they intended to lio1 The Rovengo was a stranger in that harbor although her fame was known on not a few pirate decks but If site camu to Belize to fraternize with the j other plrato vessels there gathered together I why didnt she do it No Idea of Importanco and dignity which his position imposed upon Capt Stele mlndtllWhenRevenge a good deal of Interest was excited in tho anchored vessels The great Blackboard himself stood high upon his deck and surveyed the strain gors through a glass Tho mon In the sailingmasters hoot rowed steadily towards Blackboards vessel Bittern knew it well for ho had seen it before and had even had the honor so to speak of having served for a short time under the mas ter plrato of that day As soon as the boat was hear enough Blackboard hailed It in a tremendous voice and ordered the stranger to pull up and make fast This being done a rope ladder was lowered and Bittern mounted to the deck being assisted in his passage over the side by a tremen dous pull given by Blackbeard The great pirate seemed to be in high good spirits and very glad to see his visitor Blackboard was a large man wide and heavy and the first im pression conveyed by his personality was that of hair and swarthiness An untrimmed black beard lay upon his chest and his long hair liming In masses from under his slouched hat his eyes were dark and sparkling and gleamed like beacon lights from out a midnight sky the sleeves of his shirt were rolled up and his arms seemed al most as hairy as his head two pairs of pistols were stuck into his belt and a great cutlass

Accept Operators Proposition John Mitchell who has done so ranch to bring about peaceful relations between the miners and operators and the other high officers of the ra tional union recently issued the following circular To the officers and members and District No 23 U M W of AGen tlemen At a meeting of the Nation al Executive Beard of United Mine Workers of America held in Indian apolis Ind April 30 1904 the fol werefWhereas The executive officers of District No 23 U M W of AI have recommended to the miners of Dis trict No 23 what course they should pursue in the present controversy between themselves and their em- ployers relatives to the proposed- mining scale and Whereas The proposed reduction of 4 ij per cent on mining prices yardage dead work and day labor is less than has been accepted by the mine workers of every other dis trict whose contracts expired March 31 1904 and- Whereas We Ibelieve it would bs impossible to secure better prices or condition by submitting the questions issue to a board of arbitrators and Whereas As it is our judgment that a strike if inaugurated could not under the present conditions of the coal trade be defended or be prosecuted to successful issue and if lost would result in the disintegration of the organization and the dissolution of the joint movement of operators and miners in District No 23 andWhereas We believe the best in terest of the mine workers of Western Kentucky will be conserved by yielding to the inevitable and accepting conditions of last years agreement with a 44 per cent reduction Therefore be it Resolved That we the members- of the National Executive Board recommend to the officers and members of District No 23 issue to arbitration and rather than inaugurate they accept the first proposition of the operators which is the renewal of the agreement that expired March 31 ees a reduction of 4 per cent On behalf of the National Executive Board JOHN MITCHELL President L L LEWIS Vice President W B
