A 1ft I 4 ESTABLISHED 1859 HICKMAN FULTON COUNTY ttNE 24 1904t f V L R AcXIXJjNOt2f Murder alOMlnoliII j James Edwards aged 40 living at OaktpnKy eight miles north of Cuyce was shot and lustautly killed by a man named White last Saturday evening at 6 oclock Four shots were tired iu allj each one taking effect The remains of Edwards were taken to Mayfield and buried in the Robbins Cemetery Suu day He was formerly resident of thejyear M Ballew near Alexander Beside a widows the deceased leaves four children to mourn his untimely death It seems that the trouble arose over the driving of some stock by White through Edwards yard and that White had been warned not to do so again The men met Saturday oveuiug and Edwards accused White of again tres passing oilJus property which accusation was denied by White This led to further accusations sad denials finally the lie was passed aud White deliber ately shot Ed wards through the heart killing him instantly After Edwards fell White deliberatly shot three more bullets into his prostrate form The killing has created much excitement iu the vicinity of Oakton where Ed wards was well known aud much indig Button is felt towards White whq it is claimed was to blame for the whole affair He was immediately arrested and placed in jail at Clinton White is practically a stranger in the neighborhood he having lately arrived from Breathitt county and nothing much is known concerning him White has ret fined Bullock and Smith of Ohutbu to defend him He claims that he acted iu self defense Edwards le says was advancing upon him with his hand in his pocket when he shot Speaking of tho affair the Clinton fJazette says Pending the development of the facts in the case we shall refrain from an expression of opinion We are sorry to have the fair name of our county blotted by this crime Vrhich certainly might have been avoided 1f men were not so ungovernable iu their passions and so indifferent to the shedding ol human blood The juries of the land are iu some measure responsible for this The records of our courts show h tt iMl or y+ roeNietad fM Wi erime of murder It has benofteu said and truly that it is easier to escape pnnishment for killing a man than for stealing a horse Life should be held more sacred and the man who kills upon small or no provocation should be held accountable and punished not made a hero of AH Honored Guest Hickman was honored on Monday of this week by a visit from Han Charles Gibbs formerly of Tennessee but now a resident on the Puckett place seven miles southwest on the Dyersburg road Mr Gibbs is living a retired life happy and contented hale and hearty at the ripe old age of 77 years In the present day and generation the name of Charlos Gibbs is not much known but there was a time in Tennessee when that name was one the people loved to conjure with j when it brought power and honor to its friends and ignominy and defeat to its enemies In the late six ties and early seventies the owner of that name was one of the most prom nent figures in the political history of the state He was known throughout its length and breadth as a man of most wonderful resources with an intimate I knowledge of all the great men of his day the polish ofa thorough gentleman containing the blood of the old t L southern aristocracy having a forceful I character a striking personality a thor ough knowledge of the leading questions of that time and oratorical prowess equalled by few of the public meu tbeuI before the people He was twice elected secretary of state of Tennessee and would in all probability have been itsI governor had he not decided to retire from active political work at the expiration of his second term as secretary of state in 1881 Mr Gibbs has always been a great lover of thoroughbred horses and to this day enjoys nothing better than the sight of a line blooded animal and its worklhhas seen all the great world beaters from a time forty years ago to the present and while he has never owned a large stable himself Is well and favorably known to the owners of fine horses everywhere Considering his age Mr Gibbs is perhaps the best posted nan on everything in general In the county In his later years ho has be cone a veritable bookworm aui he reads everything he can get his hands on He bids fair to live many years yet aad to entertain the younger gener ation with talts of his experiences and to deal out advice to his younger friends that will prove invaluable to them tot o i f I J Ii f t JL l 4 f oft iij 1 Just a VOr TV i J f It 4I 4i r i About Stap Books iJJ

subject tothe democratic primiuaryS THE WEST IIICKXAX LEVEE A considerable impetus was given to the West Hickman la1 vee proposition last week by the visit of Mr Henry Bond of the RichmondBond Oilcompany and his assertion that what the town stood mostly in need of was a levee protecting the pro perty interests of that portionI of the town This question has frequently been laid before the people but for some unknown reason it has always been side tracked in the interest of some other scheme and has been allow ed to lapse from time to time It is pretty general concedeI however that the time has come when some definite action mustt be takenwhen the levee must be built in fact When the matter of raising their tracks was laid before the railroad company last fall it mett with some Unexpected opposi frog amTfor the time was tabledjI in the general officers of the company but it is now believed th- J t ate if the citizens will take hold of matter with the determination to push it to a successful conclusion the railroad company will meet them half way and do their partt towardaccomplishing a muchi needed improvement AsforjMr Mengel it is understood that he holds the same relative position now that he held last fall when he declared that he would willingly bear his share of the burden iin order that his plant as well all1 i other property intertests in the overflow districts should receive proper protection 1 Concerted action is what iis most needed in this matter and i if the property owners in West Hickman will take hold of it showing a determined spirit the s thing can yet be accomplished The railroad company needs to r be convinced that a levee is as 1 1muchto their benefitas to any tJ other individual and thathi ac- cordancef with their holdings andsil the value of property jeopardiz f htheirF safeFart f fMtakeI sliould be more than willing his proportion of the ex i pence and no one allowed to es cape The manufactures have declared themselves ready to getll- rr beljiid the scheme and push it- in i t along most of the individuals signifiedtheirr Ily aid in proportion to the amount seemtof their s that the railroad company is the oniy stumbling block in the way of f of beginning the work at once If it k i worit r 1 ae to others it iV not believed tlile way of its accomplishment but cy would be as eager for it as its to mofcr ardent advocate The amount which it is asked to do tor i the levee is small 1s iridto the YMt benefits j Witt jjl tr 2 o ifil fV3 3Yrt tBI IiIIf Iwlnoh svould bo VbOdlved horn illt nnd is not nearly so much ns hasI sorssme others vjio are interested The question has been agitated for some time but agitation amounts to nothing unless it results in action and to obtain favorable action the proposition must ho boosted along by those interested and every oportunity talancelltrilctto thought on the subject One thing is certain the West Hick man levee will never be but until the people take hold of iitfc Once the thing is started the will be a grand rush to get into the band wagon and it fre luteisd rush of the crowd the orginal promoters are crowded to one side by the new converts who are anxious to get into the forefront of the procession All that is needed then is for some one to start the ball rolling So wholl1 start 4er In another column will found the announcement of 1 T eat as a candidate fqr the office of sheriff of Fulton county 1 o the great majorityof our citizens he needs no introduction He is a native of the neighborhood I near Alexander where ho was a farmer until his appointment s a deputy sheriff some three years ago His life since that time has been an open book to all1 As a public officer his superior has never held office in this county As a private citizen and the father of a family his reputation is unsullied by even a suspicion of wrong For his ability as an officer one needs but to refer to the long list of arrests mad e by lhim without show j without continent There is one thing about Jim as an officer that stands out preeminently among his many other qualifications t which can best be expressed iin the vernacular of the street He delivers the goods His candidacy is entitled to the serious and tite Kiw abiding pebpleof then flit sind should they elect him th I will find in the sheriffs office a man who knows not fear who wears no mans collar is tied t in no political rings or clique has no ax to grind and willal ways be found at the post of du ty thoroughly competent andI ready to perform any of the many duties of his office The people of Fulton soe much exercised over the ultimate outcome of the action of our citizens in putting the wholesale beer house out of business he recently This feeling of appre hension is attributable no to the wish that Hickman would in some manner become sled in the meshes of the law that she might suffer a fine or other punishment for what Ful tonites are pleased to call liesmisdeeds and shows to what e tent the animosity of our sister town may be carried There ca 1 be but one interpretation put u this feeling and that is that the town of Fulton 1 las so given over to bitterness and un jealousy that she wool rejoice to see our people con j demned whether the cause be j just or not Swelled with titsimportance of an inferior clothe- iu j a little brief authority she readily willingly and joyfully Condemns Hickman for perform an act of which she u10r than all other towns stand most in need A little Hickman hood infused intoi the veins of Fultons citizens would have a salutary effect upon the morals the town would cause the beam to be cast from out thei j own eyes and materially lessen j the expenses of their police court 1 s- He it said to her credit however I that either through fear or

literature abounds with reference to henpecked I husbands said Prof Herbert Allen Giles of the University of Cambridge in the closing lecture of his recent course at Columbia university Then he went on to tell a sample story culled from this branch of Chinese literature says the New York Tribune Ten henpecked husbands resolved to form a society to resist the imposi tions oftheir wives he said The teD wives heard of the plan and while the meeting for organization was in prog ress entered in a body Nine of the rebellioushusbandsincontinently bolt ed but the tenth one retained his place quite unmoved by the frightful apparition The ten ladies merely smil ing contemptuously on the one man left behind returned to their homes satisfied with the success of their raid The nine husbands thereupon returned and resolved to make the heroic tenth time president of the society When they went however to inform him of the honor it was found that he had died of fright Women have a few privileges that men have not continued Prof Giles They are exempt from the bamboo punishment no woman can be bam booed And a woman is a source of enx iety and misgiving to magistrate and counsel in any case in which she may be a party for no Chinaman will enter into an agreement with a womannot from any feeling of chivalry at all but from a rooted conviction that he will get time worst of it Prof Giles continued to reveal mas culine secrets by describing some things which he said recently took place at a dinner at which a number of highclass natives and important foreigners were present The host ad dressing himself to the latter in quiredDo you fear the inner ones Upon inquiry he explained that he meant their wives and added with unconscious pathos that many China men stood in constant fear of their wivesNow for example he does said the host naively pointing to a solemn and rotund magistrate who had impressed everyone as filled with a sense of his importance
