I fore the jury was made up
I The case is one of interest in Padn

was arrested He was a brakeman on
the road and Sloan was found dead
near Woodstock Tenn It is sup
posed he was struck in the bead with
a lantern but many railroad men
think ho simply fall off the train as

SQUABBLE OVER A PRIMARY
Democratic county committee mat
ters seem to be enveloped in fog at
present A majority of tho members
of the county committee have peti
tioned the chairman to calla meeting
for Juno 27 and the chairman has
instead called a meting for July SO
over a month later than a majority of
the committeemen want to bold the
meeting Whether they will abide by
thfs or proceed to hold the meeting
on the 27th as they desire to do re
mains to be seen
There seem to be various factions
among the candidates and committee
men at present Some of the candi
dates and committeemen want a coun
ty primary held in September some
in November and others not until
next year
The primary cannot be held earlier
than November however
At the last Democratic convention
a role was adopted that no primary
or convention can be held earlier than
a year before the election
Some of the members of the com
mUte are disposed to feel sore over
the failure of tho chairman to call the
meeting as asked by a majority of the
committee
committeeTho
liTho question of holding a pri
mary is not one for the chairman to
decide declared one member today
A majority of tho committee has
asked that he call A meeting the 27th
inst to settle the question of a pri
mary and it is presumed that there
will be enough members present to
settle it This is all we ask We
have not asked the chairman to call
a primary and dont care what his in
dividual preferences are He is en
titled to attend tho meeting and vote
his sentiments which Is I all that any
of us want to do This thing of the
chairman feeling bigger than the
committee or the party is what has
caused so much trouble in our oom
mittee before It is likely to cause it
now A majority oC the committee
want to hold a meeting June 27 and
petitioned the chairman to call Jt If
he feels bigger than us seventeen and
thinks he knows what we want and
should do better than we do ourselves
he may find that we dont agree with
him
