insisted or rather demanded that I go to Mrs Adkins and insist upon her settling with him by his giving her t household goods they had and twentyfive dol lars in J neyI told him that I couldnt afford

declined to do il he seemed to get extremely mad and left myoffire After that we took some depositions in the case the plaintiff took them and it appeared in the proof that he had threatened to take my life The thatIted that he intended to take my life Dr Adkins was present when the depositions were being taken Well it passed along and different parties began to come to me and tell trie that he was very biiter toward me and that I had better watch him W L Richards cash ier of the Bank of Mt Vernon and fAB Furnish assistant cashier came to me and toldme that Iwas in danger at the hands of Dr

Treasurer Ruby Lafoon For Clerk Court of Appeals John B Chenault ANNOUNCEMENTS We are authorized to announce G T JOHNSON as a candidate for Coun ty Court Clerk abject to the action of the Republican party It is unfortunate indeed that cir cumstances and conditions made it necessary for that quiet peaceable and useful citizen and able lawyer C C Williams to take the life of Dr S W Adkins That it was neccessary to do so is apparent to all The grievance of the physician was totally itnagionary The attorney s loyal to the interest of his client the same duty that Atty J W Brown was so ably perfor ming for the Doctor himself But the very fact that Mr Williams re spected himself and appreciated the rights of his client and refused to force her to settle her claim for ali mony against Dr Adkins for a mere pittance seems to have been the real cause of his intense bitterness toward his wifes attorney His hatred grew into a frenzy and he began to heap insults upon the man who had never wronged him for a moment but upon the contrary had assisted him when he first located in Mt Vernon Many a man would not have bore the insults so patiently as Mr Williams and evidently would have been justified- in acting much sooner than he did The death of Dr Adkins is due solely to his own conduct Many of our best citizens had talked to him and tried to show him where he was wrong that he was doing himself his cause his friends and Mr Williams a great injustice and pleaded with him to desist but he would not Trouble he must have and trouble he was prepared for Mr Williams wanted the cup to pass from him He did not live by the sword and hedid not want to die by it After being warned many times of his danger the attor ney reluctantly armed himself but only for his own protection He was finally driven to theditch He could go no farther and when this murderous onslaughtcame and there appeared to him death andonly death he met the issue and ought it to a finish The death of Dr Adkins and the trial of Mr Will iams tells how it all ended Dr Adkins could have been a useful and successful man among us if he had so desired When he came here our people were ready and willing to assist him and all he had to do was to show that he was worthy The lecord made by him during his two years stay among us we should kindly forget His faults let us write upon the sand and remember him no more This paper feels sorry indeed for his aged mother on whom the blow falls heaviest but she if she clearly understands the facts as the people of this community do she will bear no ill feeling whatever The trial has been had the record of justification made and now let us close the order book forever Let us look to the future and not to the past Mr WILLIAMS EVIDENCE CONTINUED PROM 1ST PAGE Parrett howeveranother t noticeitj I t here in front ol the postoffice Mr Parrett and I were taking aL ut building I had been saying some thing about doing some carpenters work he and I were talking about it Dr Adkins came up and at the time there were present Neil Par rett L T Welsh and M B SalinI Cashier of the Peoples Bank Vernon Says he I am not like the G d son of a b that has to pray for things The application I wili call the Courts attention to and its this In bringing this suit for divorce as the Court knows and as any lawyer knows in bringing a suit you al ways wind up by saying Where fore the plaintiff prays for whatever relief he might or she migl t want hence the application of the remark I of course understood and knew very well that the re mark was intended for me still I paid no attention to it didnt re sent it I called Mr Parretts attention at the time to the fact that it was iuteuded for me The othei gentlemen heard the remark A few days alter that at night just after dark Dr Davis W H Car mical Joe Kirkendoll and rayselt were in front of Dr Davis store Dr Davis was sittingthe three of us were sitting on the bench in front of the store Dr Davis was on the end this way I was next to him Bill Car mical was on the end and Joe Kirkyndoll was standing up in front of us There was just room on one of these seats for four men to sit comfortably I howev er was not very close to Dr Davis- I was nearly half way between Dr Davis and Mr Carmical and there fore there was not quite enough room between us for a man to sit down comfortably without crowd ing Dr Adkins walked up and remarked againnot addressing himself to me however but to the crowd I am not like the G d son of a bwho has to pray for things and as soon as he had made the remark pressed him self down between me and W H Carmical and commenced talking I was talking at the time to Dr Da vis and didnt cease talking to Dr Davis talked on until we got throug the conversation then I got up and left Now these are some of the things that occurred All of these occurre d subsequent to the time of the institution of the suit and subsequeut to the time he insisted upon me doing as I have de tailed to the Court and occurred a short time prior to the killing I wish to add also that on Tuesday before this trouble occurred on Fri day we took depositions in the of fice of Mr Brown Dr Adkins himself had his deposition taken on that day We went over there and these depositions were taken and during the whole time of the taking of these depositions he would throw out every kind of insult and furthermore he had in his hand a very large hickory stick and in fact I expected to be as saulted then He had a very large hickory stick and he put that stick in a threatening attitude oil several occasions and finally he used such language that Mr Brown said to him Doctor if you dont behave yourself I will get tip and leave your case Mr Brown his attorney made that remark to him The day of this trouble I dont believe I saw Dr Adkins during the day until that night when the trouble occurred I came down from my home to Mrs Butners passing by Mrs Butner and her daughter Fanny were sitting on the steps practically against the fence I stopped I was making inquiry about my aunt Aunt Lou Boulware who had been in Madi son county for some days The larger part of her con vernation was about her and some matters connected with her We also talked about the house being too small and things of that kind While we were there Dr Adkins walked up the street and as he passed by he erIstandthe tone that it was in a most vieI ious manner but the language I didnt understand and cannot re peat He went on up the stret and almost immediately he came back and as be came back he ad dressed himself not to me but to Mrs Adkins and said YouVate talking to the G dson of a b are vyou When he said that said I Doctor go on I dont want any trouble itbyouIand I might have added lieve I did since the witnesses have Ite tifiedhere I havebad enough of this And whenI said that he Stepped up quickly andsa dVou Gdsonofabandas he said that he struck me a bard blowon the cheek and went pistol He started fqrbis beforeI I started for mine and it appealed to me that his pistol hunt in his pocket that was the impression made upon my mind in fact I am sure it did and by that means I drew my my pistol just about that way illustrating an1 fired and immediately as I firel he caught by pistol and I caught hi Ho got his pistol out iust a thought after I got mine As to whether he snapped at me before 1 fired I dont think he snapped before I fired the pistol That is mv judgment about it of that I am not sure I am just simply giving my judgment We grappled thatwayhe hd bold of my pis tol and I had hold of his and we were in that position he trying to use his pistol and I was trying to use mine He went down and with him he dragged me down and we were there when the officers came along and separated us as they have told you I remember that when the officers came who separated us I had my band on his pistol and I told them Take his pistol and as soon as they got his pistol I got up of my own volition However there were two gentlemen hold of me ut the time John Taylor was one and Tom Nicely was the other Mrs Anna Miller the stenog rapher taking Dr Adkins deposi tion told me of the threats that were made on that day which threats I didnt hear I am not sure that she told me before the killing I am not sure that she didnt communicate them after I dont believe that she communicated them until after That is my pres ent recollection So many told me that I really dont know who all the parties were who told me of threats and warned me about the danger I was in I fired that shot simply because I felt absolutely conscious of the fact that I would be killed it I did not and I fired it solely and wholely in my self de fense I most surely believed that I was then and there in danger Never was I more firmly convinced of any fact in this world than I was that I would be killed unless I was fortunate enough to avert it by my own shot I knew positively that Dr Adkins was armed I have seen him time and again pass me upon the street and before lit would reach me put his hand on his pistol and pass me in that way I have read what purports to be the dying statement of Dr Adkins the conversation immediately preceding the shooting did not begin as he states He said he was tired of me making remarks about him and jerked my pistol and fired Thai Surely did not happen I was talk ing to Mrs Butner when he passed up the street but not to his wife The only conversation that occurred between his wife and me was as she detailed here she asked me what I thought of the case now I was not talking to Mrs Adkins but was talking to Mrs Butner as Dr Adkins passed up the street His language at that time was not as he states simply You are talking to him are you It was You are talking to the G d son of a b are you I did not say to him I am tired of you you G d son of a bas he states No mortal man ever heard me use that language except I was quoting it from some other man His statement that I remarked I am tired of you you son of a notIhimIHe fell and he pulled me down as he fell I did not jump on him he pulled me down as he fell I will say this that after we were on the ground I was tning to shott him and he was trying to shoot me but Inever got my pistol in range of his body I did not open my mouth while I was on the ground did not say that I would shoot him or would kill him I made only one remark and that was when the of ficers came up to separate us I told them to get his pistol and as soon as they did get his pistol I got up and didnt attempt to use mine My pistol was never taken from me 1 had no knowledge or intimation that Dr Adkins pistol was not loaded I thought it was loaded I knew from my personal AdkinsalwaysIw to hispocket he was armed and tbatitashis purpose to

stopped there I never had any desire to kill Dr Adkins or any other living man but upon the contrary I have earnestly tried to avoid any trouble with anybody On leaving my home that evening I didnt expect to meet Dr Adkins but I was not surprised at any time I did meet him because he was here in town and so was STATEMENT MADE BY COUN TY ATTORNEY S D LEWIS I believe it is as much the duty of an officer of the Commonwealth to see that justice is meted out to the defendant as to the Commonwealth that jt is his duty to see that is meted out both to the defeudIantviolated and a crime has been committed of such a character and na ture that the Commonwealth should prosecute and a conviction should be had I think it is the duty of an officer of the Common wetlth to prosecute that c ts i with all possi ble vigor Then I am of the opinion that if the Commonwealth officer believes that a crime has not been committed and that the testimony is of such a character that a l defendant should go acquit 1 believe it is then the duty of an of ficer of the Commonwealh to ask the defendant be discharged Haying in the past been a court haw g tried number of cases and believ ing that the Court at this stage of the proceedings feels as I feel I do not believer under the testimony of the Commonwealth in chief that a conviction could be had in this case notwithstanding the state ment of the deceased the dying declaration which statements have been disproved by the statements oftour eye witnesses who have tes tified here Young thompsoq says he was near by and that the slap in the face was made by the de ceased Adkins and that he drew his pistol and snapped three times in the breast of the defendant That being true the defendant had aright to act Furthermore Mrs Butner states that the slap was made in the f eand each man went after his pistol at the same tlma V That toeing true with the Tlanguage used by the deceased the aggression came from the deceased Butnerjmakes has practicallysaid the same Un der all circumstances I think the prosecution of this case would be fruitless that a conviction could not be had and ought not be had and I do not see the necessity of taking the time of the Court tor further witnesses in the case and I shall ask that the case be dismissed Here the attorneys representing the defendant stated that if the Court saw the case as the attorney for the Commonwealth did that it would be satisfactory to them for the Court to discharge the defend antThe motion having been submit ted to the Court Judge Bethurum made the following statement I agree with the attorney represent ing the Commonwealth that from the testimony I have heard a con viction could not be had There fore let an order be made discharg ing the defeudanti Am

horses to pull it along for any length of time Just so with a business There was a time when advertising was scarcely known as man could do without it but a first class merchant nowada s knows by experence that adver tizing pays He knows that when he goes to buy anything himself from a cigar to a threshing ma chine it is usually an advertized or he naturally believes that the maker afraid of the limelight of publicity When an article is really salable the cost of advertising is lost in the increased amount of sales that it makes To tie on the safe side always insist on buy ing advertised articlesEx HEALTH IN CANAL ZONE The highg wages paid mike Hat mighty temptation to our young artesians to join the force of skilled workmen needed to construct the Panama Canal Many are restrained
