REUBEN DAVIS STILL LIVES.
Why Ono Chapter In Mr. Cox's New
'Hook Unit to lie Cut Out.
The story is told tlrnt Hon. S. 8. Cox has
found It necessary to excise from his
hook, now in press, n chapter relative to
tile terrible taking oil" of Hon. Itcubcn
Davis, n member of IJio Houso-wbon Mr,
Cox llrst canio to the Capitol from ills
original district in Ohio. Jlr. Cox was in
duced to licllove that ills Democratic
friend of thirty years ago was slain by an
irnto district attorney in 1871-2, and. that
tile itcubcn i)avis of whom wo have been
reading of recent years, as the leader of tho
Orecnbackcra and Local Optiouists in
Mississippi, is u ton or other kinsman of
tlie older Itcubcn. Davis, whose untimely
death Mr. Cox deplores. In fact, these
two arc ono nnd the same person, nnd 1
would tell how Mr. Cox and the rest of
mankind worn led into this grievous and,
as thescqucj shows, most pitiful error.
1 was an editor of the Appeal in .Mom
phis in 1672. At that period an appar
ently sane inmate had escaped from tho
asylum nt Jackson, Miss., riiul taken rof
ngo in Memphis. lie had outwitted Dr.
Compton, tho shrewd and learned, mana
ger of tlio institution nt Jackson, and be
came a useful local news gatherer for the
attaches of tho Appeal. 1 did not know
this man's name, but had become cogni
sant of his virtues. I never dreamed that
he had served n term in a lunatic asylum.
On the contrary I esteemed him most in
telligent and philosophical. Late one
evening when I was discharging thu task
of night editor, this man, wearing a
troubled aspect,, entered mv apartment. I
was re-writing nnd comfensing telegra
phic nows. Ho said:
"1 have just reached this city. I came
on the express train, leaving Okalona)
Miss., to-day. I have been watching the
progress of the great murder trial pending
there, in which Sam Meek, the poetical
and eloquent dlstiict attorney, is pitted
against that grand old lawyer. Itcubcn
My visitor went on telling, of the. wit
nesses and what each swore and of the
personnel of tho jury. IIo gave number
less details. I know that in all this he
spoke the truth. JIc defined with singu
lar accuracy the personal and moral and
intellectual qualities of Itcubcn Davis and
Sam Meek, the two attorneys now pitted
against each other in a lifo or death
struggle. He spoke justly, as 1 well knew,
ofDavis' violence and irascibility and of
Mcck's mildness and gentleness and
suavity of manners and admirable good
temper and kindliness. Meek had been
nij' school-fellow, and such were his
tender sensibilities and such his generosity
that he suffered more keenly when con
templating the griefs of others than his
own, He entertained a mortal aversion
to the infliction of pain. It was a sort of
fixed insanity, and, therefore, vulgar peo
ple who did not know Sam Meek well
used to say ho was cowardly. He is thor
oughly imbued with tho tender sensibili
ties and poetical temperament of Ills
brother. Alex 11. Meek. Ha is of gigantic
proportions and measureless physical
strength, while Davis, the defendant's
lawyer in this trial at Oka!omi,wits physi
cally weak, slender; sunburnt, nervous
These just descriptions of the two ar
dent, eloquent lawyers were given by the
voluntary reporter who had just lelt the
piaiiic village, Okalona, the scene of the
extraordinary trial and death of Hon.
Itcubcn Davis. "Through the wholo
day," continued my informant, "District
Attorney Meek bore patiently tho offensive-
gibes and taunts and acrimonious
assaults of General Davis. He pretended
not to hear and then to misconceive many
offensive declarations made by Davis.
Finally Davis said that Mcck's statements
were unworthv of credence and his as
sertions false. Friends of Meek gathered
about him, urging him to resent Davis'
insults or retire fiom tho court-room and
from an olllcc of which lie was unworthy.
Davis rose( defying Meek. Thrusting his
clenched fist in Mcck's face, hopronounced
Meek a liar und coward. Meek wasdriven
to desperation" hero my excited reporter
rose to liis feet, his eyes aflame witli fury,
nnd throwing up his hands he exclaimed
"Sam Meek, wresting a Colt's repeater
from John Gilmer, shot Davis dead."
THE t'EAKFUL riXU,E.
There was a profound silence, f was
deeply shocked. Tho reporter's face was
paler than that of the hapless Davis whom
1 then beheld still', stark and cold,
stretched upon tho clerk's table In the
court-room at Okalona. When I finally
recovered my senses my interlocutor went
"I was compelled to be in Memphis to
morrow and therefore, within the hour,
thud Davis fell, 1 left tho sqeno of 'death
for this city."
Tin: I'uni.iCATiox and nusurs.
1 wrote out, at great length and fullness
of detail, with biographical sketches of
Meek and Davis, the story abovo given.
I was then tho Southern correspondent of
the New York ll'ui-M, and the wholo terri
ble narrative was telegraphed to that
paper, wliilo I gave a brief synopsis of the
tragical facts to the Associated Press.
Next morning, live or ten millions of
people, in varying tones of sadness, or
wiui untcd orciiiu, or stamen, were lean
ing or telling to listening groups how
Meek slow Davis. Davis was no move.
. ti:lkoi:am fkom run onii:it would.
Within thirty-six liours after Davis' un
timely death ns described by my unknown
and unemployed reporter, I received and
was dumfounded by an extraordinary tel
egram bigued, much to my amazement,
by Jteubcu Davis. The peculiar verbiage
of the dispatch had, too, n deadly signiil
cancc, 1 hero was a table-tipping spirit
ualist or mliid-ieader named Miller, linrd
by, and I was about to submit to liiin thu
queer telegram, when I read it again, as
Oiuuina, (., sept. 12, 1872.
I, .. Jlit I'lt, Aweul Ojlh'c, .Uniipits;
Vim mo thu blankest liar living. Com
ing to cut your ears off.
Instead of applying to Miller I went to
tho telegraph ollleo and asked the prodd
ing juilgo of the Okalona Circuit Court
whether Davis hud recovered sulllciontly
from tho wound iiillleied by Sam .Meek to
send mo a dispatch. Tho judge -answered
that he had delivered my inquiry for an
antiwar In Davis himself, who was in per
Tin: map nuronrnii,
1 went forth to discover tho name, his
tory nml abiding plaeo of the "reporter,"
who had regaled me with his admirably
theatrical recital of facts incident to tho
ronlllet in the court-room at Okaloiia.'An
agent of Dr. Compton o' tho, lunatlo asy
lum at Jackson, Miss., had unwittingly
served mo by arresting my reporter as an
escaped lunatic. proceeded to "inter
view" tho fugitive from tho asylum, and
exhibited Davis' dispatch. He upheld be
fore men copy of mv newspaper, declar
Jnj,' that every word it contained IwYh'b'
refcroncp to Dnvis ami Meek was lltcr.il
truth. He went on:
"Itube'Davis is dead I saw Sam Meek
nr. nir.n iiAnn at last.
"1 telegraphed the substance of all this
jtory to my vntticd old friend, Hon. lieu,
ben Davis. His wrath was disarmed. He
could my and do nothing, in fact he was
pmusednnd lniighed-over the story, read
ing my telegrams and letters to the law
yers nnd fillers about tho court-house.
Hut subsequent and nccossnry results of
tho publications I had made reproduced
n thousand times and with a thousand
fold lis original llorconcss tho original
wrath of my friend, now and forever more
practically defunct. There is resurrection
lor those who ilie tho death dispensed by
nature's law, but none for liioso who
sliulllc off this mortal coll In obedience to
newspapers' decrees. 1 have encountered
Mr. Davis only once since 1 slew him, His
life seemed n living death. Ho hud grown
old, very old. He did not sintlo and shook
my hand dubiously. After a somewhat
painful silence, he said, with low, tremu
"1)0 you know that the infernal mad
man's lie which you printed nnd tele
graphed is still trnvellliigaroundtlie globe
and will nuverstop?"
I thought of this tho other day when I
saw n newspaper paragraph Informing Mr.
Cox that Hon. Jteubcu Davis still lived,
and that tho chapter of Mr. Cox's book
made up from my "Madman's Story" in
thv Appeal .should bo suppressed. "Law
yers in my town," continued Mr, Davis,
"read to mo letters-in wliipli tlmy aro in
structed to 'take charge of business in
trusted some time ago to a lawyer named
Davis, now no more.' Five hundred or
more letters have readied my town con
taining tearful references to the iate
lamented Hon. itcubcn Davis, and still
they conic, 1 shudder and feel like a fel
low who had stolen surreptitiously out of
hiscoflln, without orders from tho Angel
Gabriel, every tlmo a man comes towards
mo with a letter in his hand. 'Kvcry letter
that has reached Aberdeen, where I live,
in tlie lastten years has something to say
of the late Hon. Itcubcn Davis, nnd I was
never late. I was a 'before nrcakfast' fel
low in lbCO-1. 1'eoplo abroad named lUvis
keep on writing to these lawyers, asking
them what'disposition was made of my
estate. I get no now business outside of
my Immediate district. The nowspapors
won't correct the story they printed as
you did. I believe the whole army of
editors would have tho world believe that
Sam Meek shot my head oir and finished
me with dynamite. Vcs," lie continued,
in low, snd tones, while tears stood in his
eyes, "I am dead, d d dead!"
I submit these pitiful facts for repro
duction because, as stated. Hon. S. S.
Cox m publishing this book now in
press may do his old friend Davis inlinito
service by substituting for thu chapter to
be suppressed thu story I have here re
cited. Moreover, I have never ceased to
reproach myself as jmrticepi crlminis since
Davis was assassinated, and Mr. Cox, by
enacting tho role of resurrectionist, would
do mo as well as Davis a good turn,
and his forthcoming book can lose no
shareof its charms by the proposed sup
pression of the dream of a madman.

The Cinciiinntis arc very conlldcnt of
their ability to hit llarr, wliilo tlio friends
of tlio home nluo scout the Idea. Charlie
f-'nydcr says that llarr proved puzzling to
fome of tlie. clubs last season, but that the
CineinnaUs batted him all over tlie
ground. An cnthusirtstio friend of Uarr's
oll'crcd Jo bet him that thoCinclnnatlS
would not make eight base hits off his
delivery. "Why;" said this gentleman,
"a club is batting llarr terribly when it.
secures six or eight hits in n game."
Snyder said nothing in reply, but his
smile fccmcd to say, "Wait until wo
Pofkopolls' get on to him," There is no
questioning the fact that llarr has im
proved wonderfully since last season, and
that he not only infuses confidence into
the audience, but also into tho players,
It is to bo hoped that llarr won't lie
tempted again by outside clubs to leave
the city. Next season, with tlie many
changes that will take place, there is not
much doubt that Washington will slip

which is n trlile older than tho general

The University of Pennsylvania Is out
with another cight-onrcd challenge,
thotigh it Is not mute as sweeping as the
one last year. This time it is directed at
tlie Columbia College eight, -and names
Lake Qulnsigamond, Mass., July 1; dis
tance a milo and n half. It is not likely
that Columbia will accept. In fact, Col
umbia men say that if the Pennsylvania
boys will come to New London and row
over tho regular four-milo course there
they will row them cither bijforo or after
their race with Harvard. The Harvards
and Ciilumbias row about July 2St and tho
Colunibias are, training for a lour-mile
nice. J.UKU iiiiisiuiiiuiiu, unco iiiu seenu
of all tho aquatic battles between tho
college and other oarsmen, lias, of late
years, fallen into neglect. This year tho
regular Fourth of July regatta between
the different colleges will bo decided on
tills Hike, Lake George proving too rough.
For that reason it would bo quite con
venient for Pennsylvania to row an eight
on the same water just before her four.
Pennsylvania is especially trained to row
a mile and a half, out few people 1io aro
posted believe that her eight could row
four miles. In n four-milo race with
either Harvard, Yale, or Columbia, tlie
Pennsylvania eight would probably be
last. Her men aro much smaller and
lighter. She has always had tho lightest
college eight of anv of them, and though
they havo the skill and dash to make it
hot race with any of them for a milo ami
a half, they lack 'tho strength and endiir
nneo to row four milesnt speed. Columbia
will probably say just what has been said
in this article, that if Pennsylvania wants
to row, she can come to Now London and
row over tho regular four-milo course.
