NARRATES STORY OF THE MURDER OF RANKIN. After securing this brief but tltld history of the night, riders from F'hrln- ger. Attorney Uencral Caldwell tiirnol directly to tne crime for whicli tne defendants arc on trial, and nsked this question! "Do you nnncmlicr the night that Cspt. Ilaiikln was killed!" In answer to this and numerous other question, the witness saldt "I remember thst night very well. On that night we all met at Lnn, Ilridge, and from there we went up tlie Hickman and Dyrrsburg road until we got to Louis Carpenter's, and then wo went tinder the bluff to Ld Powells fence and up the road and bllched our horses and met some other frllows there at the corner of the ftnen where we hitched our horses, from there we went to Ed Powell's and got Fa! Powell and took him to Ward's hotel with us for the purpose of having him wake Mr. Wan!. "When we got to the hotel I went behind the house and guarded around there, close to the window, while some of the party went In the room. After they got in there I went In the room, ami when I got In there Mr. llankln was sit ting on the side of the bed and Mr. Taylor was standing up, arranging his clothes. TOOK TAYLOR AND KANKIN WITH THEM. "We left there then with Mr. Taylor and Mr. llankln, and took them up to where we had hitched our horses. "On the way up there we stopped above Powell's house, and Oarrett John1 ion snore Kd Powell In as a night rider. We went from that joint to where the horses were hitched and stayed there sn hour or more, and 1 heard Garrett Johnson and others talking to Mr. Taylor while we were there. "I heard Oarrett Johnson ask Mr. Taylor why he done like he did when the people had hired him to look after the rase, and wlien he found the lake suit pending why did he drop the people and turn to Hsrris and try to take the II said every people's lake away from them and their homes and everything. time he thought aliout it he felt like shooting one of them. "I heard Mr. Taylor explain the way he got the title; thst he got it from some heirs that lived In some city or town up In Tennessee. "We stayed there alxmt an hour, and some of them wanted to whip Ihtm and send them home, and some of them wsnted to hang them, and some of them wanted to shoot them, but they finally taken and put a rope around Itankln's neck and led him down to Long's Slough, Its) oil Dechein Slough, and when we got down there they threw the ropa over the tree and stsrted to hang Ilankiii "I asked him did he want to say something to the Lord. I said, They're going to hang you, and if you have got anything to say to the Lord, you had better say It now.' "lie made some reply that he had done prsyed, or was praying. I did not understand just what he said. BOD HUFFMAN SHOT CAPT. RANKIN. "They throwed the rop nrer the tree and 1 went to walk between Hob Huffman and the tree and Itob Huffman shot him as they were drawing him up on the tree. After thst there were several shots fired. "Col. Taylor was sitting on the ground near where Itankin wss hung, on a littlo root, and just as soon as the first fusillade of shots were fired, Col. Tarlor juftiped up ni.d jumpctl in the slough, nnd they shot several times nt him there. "We thought we had ki'led Col. Taylor, and I struek a match and looked in to sec if I could sec him floating around ou the water anywhere, but could not see him, and we went back to where Mr. llankln was, and I struck a match ml looked at htm. He was lying flat down this way (Indicating on his hack). with hi" head lying in his hat, and the blood wqs running out of his mouth. "I hoard ono of the crowd say that they knew he was dead Ixwnuso another one said to him that he had shot him with a round ot 38 oallb r pistol cartridges. "Then I heard Sam Applewhite say that he had a load of bleycle balls for him before tho shooting, and then after the shooting he said he knowed he was dead hecauso ho put it load of bicycle balls in him. "I don't know who put the ropo around his neck. When I first saw the rope around his neck Jess Curler and Tom Wilson bad hold of it, nnd after we got down to where they hung him there was two or three had hold of the rope. (The last named parties, Carter and Wilson, died while at N'nshville.) "There was about 33 in the whole rrmrd, and I positively recognizor four of the defendants here as Wing parties there, for I talked (o them. They are (iurrctt Johnson, IIiul Morris, Hob Huffman and Sam Applewhite. I heard Arthur Cloar's name called there, but I did not have any conversation with hlin. "I remember that some one, I don't know who It was, was not closo enough to him, had a stick ani was feeling In the water at the edge of the ilough for Col. Taylor's body. "D0NT DO THIS, BOYS; LET ME DOWN." "When they had tho rojo around Cupt. ItuuUn'i neck and wero pulling him up, he said. 'Don't do this, boys; let me down, let me down.' lie said that a couple of times, "When wo left there we came on bark and got our horses and came on down the mad, and snmu went ino way and some another. Tim Clayton crowd left us at the forks of tho road and went up the Fish flap Hill and we camn around under lhe bluff to Brewer's. Before wo separated (iarrett Johnson gave us orders for everybody to hide uverythlng and keep ijulet und not do any talking.

It lies In tho perversion of our theories of government, tho Introduction of the Idea of class enrichment through legislation.

Tho Post then recalls Garfleld'a statement when a congressman, that servlco on tho wnys and means was morally depressing becauso of tho unconcealed selfishness shown thero. The Post adds that Congressmen Payno and Dalzell arc startled at tho swinish displays made dally beforo the committee which recalls Charles Francis Adam's famous characterization.

A number of entertainments were given during the holidays which we are riot able to report in detail this week, on account of our local report er, Miss Frankye Reid, being out of the clly. One or two of the events were written up and brought to the office, and we would have been glad had the rest of them been brought in. One of Hickman's capitalists has recently completed a dozen houses for renting. Another has just finish ed six and has let the contract for six more. Still another has built three and expects to put up seven more, and another has in contempla tion seven, while all over town others- are building one, two or more. And still the demand continues. Every one of these houses are occupied as soon as completed. Why do these money men put so mucn money into investments of this character? Simp ly because they pay so well. It is a known fact that these investments pay these parties from 'J5 to JO per cent interest. And as the Indica tions are that our factories are per manent things, it Is a sate invest ment also. We know of no better Investment for one with a few hun dred dollars than to buy a lot and build one or two houses to rent. 24-4- JCaUrtd tl th Hickman, Kentucky, mall matter. pcaloflca m ooad-clasii The rentals pay big interest .31,1 Santa Claus Got Busy. This Is one Christmas that Santa Claus treated us right, alright. We got a real present especially designed and appropriate for a bachelor. One wc have wanted for a long time and Santa finally came across. She was presented formally enough, by an eminent divine, with the words "will you keep, honor, etc. "and will hereafter be known as Mrs. Speer. Santa was certainly "cuttin up." And at last an opportunity presents itself where we can write up a wedding just as we think It was without fear of ieapordinng business or bodily harm. In fact, for many years, we have been lying about weddings all quill other folks drivers do for it is true that still paper men; as they do not confine themselves to little lying. It was just an ordinary, quiet wedding neither the bride or groom being of any great consequence in the social, religious, political or financial realms (we could not, dare make all these denials for other folks) . The bride was dressdress of some ed in a tailor-mad- e stuff. She had sort of another dress, but preferred wearing this one because she wouldn't have to change. Don't know whether she looked beautiful or not we were watching the preacher. Hearsay testimony is to the effect that she looked about as pretty as nature would permit. The groom wore a black suit and scared look. The 'look was assumed. The suit was bought. We still have the suit. After the ceremony, the newly wedded couple repaired to the depot (newly weds always "repair" to the depot, other folks just go to the ' depot) to take a train for St. "Louis, adcompained by our partner and another appropriate gift for a bachelor. The train was already taken by other people, but they were permit- ted, o ride because tney had previous- ( 1y arranged for transportation. As usual, a good crowd met them at Union Station. The bride is the daughter of Mr. andiMrs. Jno Stoltz, of Sturgeon, , Mo, t She isjthe best cook we ever housekeeper met, and a cracker-jac- k She is a good girl in all other respects.

With the defense of the eight night riders' trial well under way the case has settled down into a wearisome round of cumulative testimony. The defendants are pleading not guilty and relying on alibis to escape These alibis are to be strengthened by the testimony of scores of witnesses, most of them relatives of the defendants. All but two of the eight defendants have been put on the stand. Each of the defendants remembered distinctly many people who were in their homes the night of the Rankin muider and recalled many incidents that occurred then Bob Huffman, one of the accused eight, was the first witness Tuesday morning. He followed the others in his denial of ever having been a night rider or having ever joined the band in any of the raids. Roy Ransom followed Huffman, and in turn was succeeded on the stand by Garrett Johnson, the reputed leader of riders. Both men denied any knowledge of the riders and detailed their movements the night of the Rankin murder. It Is developing that there was a great deal of visiting among the Reelfoot people that night. Each defendant had company that night, out could not say when he had visitors before. Johnson stated that the night the riders met at Marsh's store to pre vent a raid by Lake county men, as detailed by Frank Fehringer, the sheriff had authorized them together for protection. Johnson denied that anyone was masked or that the men gathered there were night riders. In fact he had never seen a night rider and would not know one If he saw him. Hathorn-'Newto- n.
