Kentucky and the Immigration Movement Dearth of labor is the great draw back of the south fell in every com munity retarding every line of en terprise and depriving every proper ty owner in some measure of the just returns of his thrift It is this fact that has set on foot an investi gation into industrial conditions outlof which was evolved the immigra tion movement that has gained such widespread popularity This dearth of common labor not only cripples factories in meeting their demands planters in harvest ing their Tops and householders in keeping up their efltabUahmtnu but it actually interferes vrtth the development of the country to its full wealth producing rapacity It is there that the condition Iis serious and there is no hope in the outlook by the natural gain in

it is well known that there iis no surplus of labor in any portion of the south it is a matter Hof vital importance to the progress of towns and localities in Jacksons Purchase feat we make every effort to overcome these conditions The farmers of Jacksons Pur chase have been blessed with boun teous crops and throughout this section the cry goes up for help Men and women unused to such la bnr have been compelled to assist in the field and in the harvest to protect the immense crops and save them from loss The factories in HIckman in some instances have found it diffi cult to secure sufficient labor to operate their plants to the full capacity- It is the oppartuncjijime for strong energetic work in the interest of immigration and the up building of this end of the state The success of this movement is of vastly more importance to the business men of Jacksons Purchase than a few days time in ordinary routine of business Every individual is urged to consti lute himself a

at ClintonI Kentucky- Dr Jeff Williams a dentist ofr Nevada Mo Monday about 8 1 Si oclock shot and killed his step brother Vaughan M Moore of Amory Miss at the home cf their parents Mr and Mrs Jas C Moore In North Clinton A pistolI was used and one ball appears to have entered Moores shoulder andt ranged downward into the left side toward if not into the heart The other shot struck Moore in the chini or neck and passed Into his left arm It is thought that three shots were fired Moore died Instantly andI his body found by those who firstt arrived on the scene In a reclining posture on the front steps Williams hatless and coatless hurried at once to town to surrender to the sheriff not waiting to see if the man he had shot was dead Sheriff Evans took him In charge asdi afterwards turned him over to Jailer Jackson upon commitment papers from County Judge Drummal The town was greatly startled by the tragedy for it was wholly un expected nothing being known o any quarrel or ill feeling the two men who had come here tto look after their aged parents both of whom are desperately near to deaths door- Particulars of the dLstressin affair are not likely to be clearly known until the examining trial Williams claims that he acted iin his necessary selfdefense and the circumstances so far as we have been able to obtain them seem to bear him out in that claim There was only one immediate witness to to the shooting and his name is withheld by request We have not undertaken to get his story of it and we were given to understand that he preferred to make his first statement at the examining trial The fulll particulars as then brought will be published in the Gazette Dr Williams is 42 years old and has a well established business as a dentist at Nevada Mo and is a prominent citizen Hof that city Vaughan Moore also was wet1 thought of and his tragic death at his boyhoods home is the cause of much regret He was engaged business at Amory Miss and b a family there He was M
