Below will be found a few comments on the situation as told by the Troy News I Banner Probably the greatest and moslI interesting law suit ever tried in I Onion county is on before Judge Maiden in Union City This suit is interesting for several reasons A woman and especially if that woman is young and pretty who claims to have been injured and i badly treated Is always an object of profound interest that is to men Men are so constructed even the willIregardless of the fact whether shes right or wrong and the minutest fragment of news about her her size habits conformation look expres sion pose dress appearance words character friends and so is devoured like a famished person hiding food It cannot be denied that Miss Walk er is both young and pretty The wealth and high social stand ing of the gentleman she sues and the huge amount she sues for adds no small amount of interest to the case She sues for 50000 We do not pretend to know what Mr Edwards Iis worth nor Is It any of our business but current report that lying blatant gossiping false old dame generally accredits Dick with being worth from 100000 to 150000 x 1T 1qr r f It is fair just and proper to state that Dick Edwards has ommittlng any reference tu his life before marriage and without passing any judgement upon it since his marriage about two years ago ben a model domestic man of irreproachable and unexceptionable habits It is doubtful in our mind if Mr Edwards can get a perfectly fair trial here There are a great many people prejudiced against Edwards partly be cause he is rich partly because he owns and runs an automobile It is generally believed that a judgment and n pretty heavy one at that will be secured against him Misi Walker went on the witness stand Tuesday running The sub stance of her charge against Edwards is that he courted her proposed marriage to her and taking her to New York for the pretended purpose as she alleges of there marrying her took advantage of her love for and confidence In him betrayed her accomplished her ruin and then de serted her and left her a stranded wreck and stranger in a great un known city We are reliably informed that Miss Walker who was on the witness stand all day Wednesday made a splendid witness cool selfpossesse- tactiul Intelligent resourceful and wellbalanced she made a fine im pression both on judge jury and audience the house being packed tits utmost capacity Miss Walker training as an actress was doubtless of great assistance her in this try jnf ordeal Burglars Still Busy in Fulton j and ElsewhereII Reports from all over the country say that burglaries are becoming general It is almost impossible to pick up a local paper without seeing accounts of numerous burglaries The Fulton Leader says Burglars are still successfully operating in this community Two country homes were robbed Thursday While the family of Mr Nu gent was at church at Palestine thieves entered their home an stole a large quantity of silverware cloth ing etc One of the thieves was a small boy as he left his old clothes and put on a new suit that belonged to one of Mr Nugent boys Another burglary was committed Thursday near Roachs Crossing south of town This robbery was committed by a young man and a barefooted boy They were seen and pursued by a number of farmer- but managed to escape There seems to be but one way tto capture these bold thieves That way is to get bloodhounds and place them on the trial At each house visited the thieves have scorned enough booty to pay for the service of bloodhounds The surest and l robberdJ is to get bloodhounds Hughey Newman went to Hickma- today lie will be accompaniedI home by his wife who is there visit ling her parents Fulton Leader Three prisoners escaped from jailF at

J Bryan made his campaigns for the Presidency in 1896 and 1900 has received a letter from Mr Bryan In which he announces he will accept the nomination for the third time if ills tendered to him The letter is dated June 18 at Stockholm and is as follows I have been watching political developements and have noted with gratification the vindication of Democratic principles You have correctly stated my position As I wrote to Col Wetmore I shall do nothing to secure another nomination and do not want another one unless the conditions seem to demand it I may add that I enjoy the freedom of private life and feel that I can do some good without holding any office There are however certain reforms which I would very much like to see accomplished and to assist in the accomplishment of these reforms I am willing to become the party candidate again if when the time tor nomination arrives the advocate of reform are in control of the party and think that my candidacy will give the best assurance of victory If some one else seems more avail able I shall be even better pleased I need not assure you that I am rmore interested in seeing our princi pIes triumphant than I am iss the personnel of the

and killed Clay Dunn near Dorena opposite lliokman reportl quite numerous and varied came to this place as to how the affair was done as is usually the case in such circumstances We real lied the fact that one narrative was as good as anothor from the fact that so many wore afloat and we had no way to know which was correct Our idea was to convey the item o news to the public then correct this week in accordance with the real facts As it wax we wiere S partly in error Since Kist eeks issue we have been informed of Ithe f true state of affairs from strictly a reliable source and in justice to the community in which it was done as well as to the unfortunate though as we believe justified man we give it to you as follows Clay Dunn had for a year or more been on terms with Mr Lamberts wife which the latter considered too familiar and out of the natural order of domestic felicity He bad anum ber of times warned Dunn to cease these relations and let his wife alone Dunns friends as well as Lambert friends warned him and told him it was dangerous for him to continue But he turned a deaf ear to tbe warnings heeding them not but continued to resort to clandectii meetings The matter had gained such notoriety we are told that t was neighborhood talk even with little children A week or more be fore the unfortunate affair occurred Mrs Lambert had remarked to her husband that if he would permit her to go to Paducah on a visit the would have nothing more to do with Clay Dunn Up in response told he would do anything to atop re lattons that had heretofore marred the happiness of his home And an honest hard working man he procured funds and sent her to Pa- ducah In the meantime he Uarne that Clay was arranging to get an advance or loan on his farm and would follow Mrs Lambert to Pa ducah where they would meet and go further He at once hastened to where his wife was Clay Dun arriving in the city the same day Mrs Lambert was so taken bysur prise at his arrival that she was seized with nervous prostration She accompanied her husband home still claiming she would have no more to do with Dunn On Sunday Mrs Lambert received a note from Dunn and afterward Mrs Lambert told her husband that Dunn was going tc Charleston Mr Lambert went tc his field early Monday morning and started his men to work taking his t shot gun along On his return he met Dunn When he got within 15 fret of him he remarked to him thatt- he had frequently requested him to not interfere with his domestic affairs and refusing he thought they bad better setile the matter then Dunn said alright and put his hand to his pocket for his gun where upon Mr Lambert shot him above e the eye killing him instantly At the inquest his hand was on his breast noar his pocket in which was h a 45 calibre Colts revolver It Is claimed Dunn had said a few days previous that the gun was lor Jimmie Lambert Mr Lambert walked to the magistrate and surrendered himself and gun but was never r taken in custody His bond was only placed at 1000 which was ready made Mr Lambert has hosts of friemls who will see that he wants for nothing in his trouble t I Murderer Captured by Finis f Ciakat Madrid Bend Henry Darnell a negro

as can be ascertained where anyone held onto life for a time exceed- Ing fctven weeks with a hole almost entirely through that organ of life the heart Henderson Gleaner The case of John Ross colored

DODDS Seey Pres ccI t Bold Burglary Attempted I Friday Night The residence of Rev C L Price was entered last Friday night at I about 2 oclock by a single burglar whose boldness was unparalled in former nefarious deeds committed in the city for the past few weeks The burglar obtained an entrance into the house through the cellar showing a complete knowledge of building and surroundings He entered the sleeping room of Mr and Mrs Price and for the purpose of locating objects within the ream and also to prepare a way of easy scope if necessary the man turned ou the Jtflectric lights flooding the room in Us brlgnt rays The sud den glare cf light awakened both I Mr aid Mrs Price and the burglar rnatr H h sty retreat making good his escape without recognition This is ihe last burglary or attempt at such that has been committed in Hickman since the beginning of these JeprrdationT and is also the boldest We feel sure the city officers ars doing all in their power to locate the principals and their accomplices in these series of bold crimes but if there is a continuation of such depredations greater diligence and stronger efforts are necessary on the part of both officers and citizens alike for thet peace and dignity of our city are at stake and should not br sacrificed o Ladies to Begin Revolver Practice As a result of the frequent depre dations upon the hones and proper y citizens in this vicinity by seem ingly a band of organised burglars who have so far escaped detection and arrest the ladies of this oily are seriously conUmplating the organiz ing cf a club for revolver practice The fair name of womanhood in lye olden times was Us own pro tection even among gentlemen of the roads and the unprotected were never molested But not so now In this centufwhen the easiest method is the best among nefarious vagabonds whose livlihood Is the fruit of others toil Our I women when unprotected are aij at the mercy of men of this type but with their quick ear tode lect any sound and a trusty weapon near witn the knowledge that their hand is as quick as their ear they will rrake a mighty dangerous article for any nightprowler This organization should material lie and with only a little practice the unprotected women of the city ould feel as secure as the boldest masculine sex It is a splendid idea and may it succeed if ever the occasion presents Itself Best Show at Hickman This Season Cooley and lagans big show boat Wonderland arrived inI Hickman Sunday and gave a high class vaudeville preformancc here Monday night The company Is

Join oar grand A S of E And alt be optedale A TRKACXttftOUS OUIM- We oonfoss to a ftoiing of pity for some of the oppjnoati of this effort of the farmers to place themselves upon jut equal footing with other pro ductive and industrial interests of the world But some of them are not deserving of pity nor of much contideraUoA Certainly are not those who attempt to make the whole thing a personal matter sad vent their spleen in ill diaguleal hatred malice and skutder Those who do that simply advertise themselves knaves clad fools knave because they would betray and deceive those who support and trust them merely to gratify p ttyspite fools because they cannot perceive that their sins will Inevitably find them out and that their falsehoods and slanders will react upon their own heads Thte kind of opposition Is not argu moat nor oaa It be hurtful to this Society We welcome honest discussion ktvjpUgBtton and argument and gladly ml k m a like spirit of sin otrfty If we cannot sustain our portion let victory go to the other aisle The following from the Farmers CoWs scarcely comes within the shove dasc hut let tM charitably aoBSlder it suck They members of the A S of L arc blindly led to think that a hanlful of farmers can put the price of wheat at SI per bushel and keep it at that figure abolish the law of supply and demand and without juris diction of the supply It is different wi h the oil trust or steel trust which can make the supply of itll products whatever pleases them II And the days of their ignorance God winked at We notice 11 Farmers have not jurisdiction of the supply of farm crops Webster says jurisdiction is The power or right ofexercising authority If farmers therefore have not jurisciction of farm products they have neither the power nor the right to exercise authority over them The farmer wns or has control by rent or toast the land from which the pro ducts grow i he prepares the land be plants the seeds which are his he cultivates the soil and guards the growing plants from injury I he har vests the matured product and it is Hishis by right of production in land that belongs to him from seed that belonged to him through labor performed by him and it is his by right of absolute and undisputed pos session If that loco not establish ownership and jurisdiction then we would like to be guided to a knowledge of what does establish it Now take the logic of this peculiar Guides argument If the farmer cannot abolish the law of supply and demand without jurisdiction of the supply he can abolish the law of supply and demand We have prbven that he has that jurisdiction and there you are with a Guide h A Glimpse at Reelfpot Lake broII I Twelve nules A trom 1this1 hoisted by his own petard But tanners have no disposition to abolish the law of supply and de mand They propose to base all prices upon that law equitably en forced exercising proper jurisdiction of the supply Now Isnt that fair and isnt it logical Hat it is different with the trusts I Ah sure I We were afraid of that Nearly all this class of opposers find it very different with the trusts The trusts have a right to otntrel production but the farmers have net The trusts can make prices on their output but the farmers cannot make prices on theirs Certain classes of the human family may absolutely and arbitrarily con trol what is theirs only by the right of preparation and shaping but the largest and most useful claw of all mankind must not attempt to control either quantity or price of what Is theirs by every right human or di vine This is remarkable Guid ance for justiceloving people I A S of E claims that farmers as a lass are entitled to every right and privilege possessed or exercised by any other class Before the friends oC the monopolistic classes deny these rights to the farming class they should induce their friends theme nopolistic classes to aease to exer cise them Another strange argument is made to the effect that if Amerfoan farmers charge SI per bushel for wheat ether countries especially England will pitch into wheat growing and abso lately wipe ui off the earthI That Is certainly the raggedest scarecrow that ever decorated a knotty pole in a stumpy field The very same thing was used to scare the cotton planters in the Souththat If they held their cotton for a reason able price India would pad the world with cotton and Southern cotton would not be worth the picking But the planters held the price went to the minimum and one of the biggest board of trade men says he expects to see it go to 15 cents II Whats the matter with Indi- alOne dollar per bushel is not high price for wheatIt little more than covers the cost of production and marketing but it is thought to be equitable compared with other prices and with the supply and demand and that is the proper basis for any price Wheat has been more than a dollar many times in this country It was S2ll in 1866 161 in 1867 Sl 20 In 1870143n 1871 S172 in 1876 5140 in 1891 Sl85 in

While the lamp holds out to bum The vilest sinner may return Our efforts are not for those that already have knowledge but rather to bring the ignorant into wisdom and we can assure this unreliable

rockc the cradle rested upon her head as she lisped lter first prayer and smoothed her pillow during the weary hours of sickness She can be trusted and into her ear is poured the secret thatfno one

one end bathed in the sunshine of the morning of life the other lost in the shadows of the grave Speaking of man and wife there is no duty that man should consider more saored than the protection of his wife and family The man who will bring upon them disgrace or even give rise to comment that will cause them heartaches is unworthy the name of man Some people say that there are two sides to every story With the story of the man who has sc far forgotten his pledged love for his wife his duty to his children and his own self respect there is only one side and that be willies in the blood of- ontcrnpt and condemnation Man is sinful ever but as for us we would rather stand before the judgment on the final day with the crime of murder the crime of theft or thes of violating every commandment in the decalogue of Christian faith charged against us than to meet the charge of forgetting ther duty to ones wife No one with a drop of red blood in his veins who will stop and think of the love shown by his wife of the sacrifices made by the woman of his choice of her steadfast faith In him and loyalty to his interests can do naught but J hang his head in shame when he realizes that he has forgotten thett vows of the wedding day that hec has subjected her to pity that I Iii sometimes worst than scorn that he has perhaps turned away from her pleading voice and tearful eyes to bask in the smiles of one whow loyalty and love Iis like the mist of morning to disappear beneath the bursting rays of the sun of adversity No man am do these things Only brutes in the form and shape of humanity can be guilty of such crime c r If Christianity may be said to have given a permanent clevatio to women as an intellectual and moral being it is as true that the present age above all others has given play to her genius and taught us to reverence its influence It was the fashion of other times ts treat the literary acquirements of the sex as starched pedantry or vain pretension to stigmatize them as inconsistent with those domestic affections and virtues which consti tute the charm of society These things have in a great measure passed away The pre judices which dishonored the sex have yielded to the influence of truth By slow but sure advances education has extended itself through all ranks of female society There is no longer any dread lest the culture of science should foster that masculine boldness or restless in dependence which alarms by its sallies or wounds by its inconsis tencies We have seen that here as everywhere else knowledge is favorable to human virtue and human happiness i that the refinement- of literature adds lustre to the de votion of piety i that true learning like true taste is modest and un oitentatirus i that grace of manners receives a higher polish from the discipline of the schools i that culti vated genius sheds a cheering light over domestic duties and its very sparkle like those of the diamond attest at once its power and purity There is not a rank of female society however high which does not now pay homage to literature cr that would not blush even at the sus picion of that ignorance which a half century ago was neither uncommon nor discreditable There Is not a parent whose pride may net Slow at the thought that his daughter happiness is in a great measure within her own command whether the keeps the cool sequestered vale jf life

conceives to be the truth It Is to benefit in the widest possible sense the people who read it and who give it their support It is to make itself an agent of civ ilization and progress What a newspaper is for Is to do right and to keep others from doing wrong It is In this way that it conserves its own interest and obtains the rewa- tot which it is entitled It is throug- its concern for the welfare of the people that it gains the influence and achieves the power that makes Iit independent of any obligation save that of fidelity to its high responsi bullies To place itself on this sort of footing a newspaper must be as im personal as an institution can be come with flesh and blood behind it It must be to perform its perfect work nothing less than an organ- Ized conscience and
