era far the Memphis Society
A reporter of tha Aw it inter
viewed Mr. M. P. Kay, agent of the
Humane Society, Washington, yester
day, as to the methods of work tbat
there have produced such marked
success, and with the following re
The Appeal reporter ssked Mr.
Key how public opinion was changed
at the national capital from opposition
to support of the Humane Society,
and he answered :
Three years sgo.when I began work
ss the agent of the Society for the Pre
vention cf Cruelty to Animals, of
Washington, D. O , we were despised
and hated by all tbe coarse element,
and many of our best business men
had no rdepect far us. and for nearly
a year this order of things existed,
nntil I saw that our enemies were
more right than wrong, and that they
were not flghtin the principles of the
Society for tbe Prevention of Crnclty
to Animals but its fanatic and senti
mental tbeoiie. So I moved to the
blither and nobler sphere : It is right
and honest to care for and protect
your animals that are daily doing yonr
labor and supplying you with f jod and
raiment, aod from a universal demand,
to show onr faith by our works, I be
gan the erection of drinking fountains
for horses, and solicited half tbe
money from the owners of horses, all
of whom we had prosecuted for cruel
ty to animals, far their erection.
Many of tbem gave ns 125 each, and
in a III tie while the whole opposition
was changed to one of support and
respect, until today we number nearly
400 members. The vicious acknowl
edge that we ars pursuing the right
coarse, while the business man says
we cannot do without the society, and
therefore muH support it. A few days
b'foro I left W. J. published a card
that if anyone would donate $10 for a
certain kind of drinkicg fountain for
animals as a Christmas present that I
would add $5 more, as that was ths
price, and the next morning one of
our good ladies, not one of our mem
boie, came to our cdo and gave the
amount. I will add, Mtaurs. Editors,
that if any of your good people wish
to moke a like donation to ycur socie
ty for tbe bontllt of these mules and
fdthf-il servants of man, I will not
only give $5 but ray the freight from
Washington to Memphis for the same
pattern fountains. -1 have recom
mended to onr sociely to give a silver
medal to any uian who nsi worked
one horss continually (or fifteen years,
a gold medal for tweuty years, and a
diamond medal for working a horse
for twenty-five conseoutive years, and
a short time ago they voted to give a
gold medal to a captain of. a canal
boat on' the Cbetapuake and Ohio
canal for his humane treatment of
four mules for nineteen years, they
not having lost a day on ac
count of sicknes, lamfenesa or
gtlle, this man not being the owner.
The announcement that this cap
tain was to receive a gold medal frtm
the Hnmane Socloty of Washington
aroused a npitit cf rivalry amonii all
the canal boatmen, and is doing much
more good than all the prosecutions
we have done since cur cra&iiation.
No, we have received no large do
nations or bequests; in fact, Henry
Bernh. of Now York, ia the only man
who does, for the general idea seems
to prevail that we have two Presidents
ia the United States, Grover Cleve
land being toe Preaident of the peo
ple and Henry Bergu being tbe I'resi
dent of tbe animals, and with this im'
press'on a Washington man gave Mr.
Bergn SIO.UUO by bequeet last tail.

MURDER M THE JBSTIS.
ISTERTEir WITH THE SUP
Tit Denies All Knowledge of the
Klillag.bat Admits Having As
slated In Another Mar4er.
If J. Mingo Jones, tbe negro who is
suspected and accused of tbe mnrder
of Paul and Koea Justi, is cot guilty of
that fonl crime, be is nevertheless a
criminal so deeply dyed in villainy
teat the record of his misdeeds, if
fsififu'ly chronic ed, would make a
story of crime ttartling in its Iniquity.
He was interviewed yesterday at tbe
jiil by an Appeal teporter, and while
he stoutly denied complicity in tbe
Juiti mmder he made admissions that
will bring him so near the gallows ss
to make his head sim. He told a
disconnected tale of bis past career
which was full of contradictory state
ments, but plainly
admitted ths f0ll1wiho damaqiko
First That he was in Kc rrville cn
the 1st day cf July, 1888. (Two days
alter the Justi killing.)
Second That he was in poseesslon
of money at tbat tims which be ber
rowed f i om bis brother-in-law. Cham
Ward, now a resident of K?rrville.
Third That he bas now 1350 in
money and a gold watch concealed in
a hoi ow Ice near Kerrville.
Fourth That about fifteen years
ago be assisted in tbe poisoning of
the wife of Jake Humphrey s, a oolored
man who lives near Kerrville, and
that the p-If on was furnished to him
by tbe woman's huebicd.
Jones is now in jail charged with
having; robbed oerUin par. lea at Kerr
ville of S1200, and if, as he indicate,
the $350 in money is cons-.aled where
be says it is, he either etjle it at Kerr
ville or somewhere elre, possibly from
the Justis. The wach, if found,
may fix his guilt, as there
waj a gold watch among tha
things stolen from the ill ' fated
Italian couple. Bat whether guilty or
not, the Sbeiifl has In his cmtody in
tbe perron of tbe Mingo Jones an ad
mitted murderer and in all probability
one of the accomplices, if not the
principal, in the Justi assassination.
He betrayed great nervonsness daring
the ioterview, and is evidently in
treat fear of some unforeseen danger.
His account of
of tbe wifa of Jake Humphreys is as
"I was a boy at the time. It was
after the war when a'i the niggers
around Kn'.xville had the blank
tongue sickness. I was a boy at the
time, and carrying a buoket of water
to tbe home. Humphreys met me
eud poured something white into tbe
bucket and said : 'Dj you know what
, "'No,' sits I.
' "Well, i 's strychnine. My wife is
sick and there is no telling how long
she'll live. I'm getting tired of her.
Let her drink this water."
"I gave her the water to drink, and
she died the same day. I was a boy
acd didn't know any belW."
Tbe Sheriff sent to Kerrville last
night to arrest Humphreys
is s I all negro, about six feet h;gh, of
tbin but sinewy build, sad as mus
cular as a g ant. He wears s black
mustache and a small chin beard. He
can make fourteen con'radictory state
ments in a minute, and will wind
himself up with a network of etoriea
befoie he gets through this cose that
may causa strangulation.
Nothing more U3tf x, inexpensive or
acceptable thaa a box of Colgate's
Gaehmere B.iuqnet Soap.
Thii powder never varlei. A marvel

What the Jo!I0!d Soul Has
To Say To Memphis.
I There is nothing in either An
cient or Modern Ilistory to prove
that Kriss Kricgle ever had a wife,
and therefore, as he is neither dead,
nor never was married, it is impossi
ble for him to have a widow.
But it is possible, and it is true
that the Misfit Clothi.vo Pab
lobs, 262 Second street, are making
special CHRISTMAS OFFERS in
fine Suits, Fants and Overcoats.

much as possible when buying. The
Overcoats you get at the Mistit

cause they are not only low in price,
but also high in quality.
