FRANK WATSON LOSER.
13. J. Falrless, who cnmo from Tex

JJoi Co. for about five months, lit
Frank Watson, of this city, down for
Watson, who Is slightly rclntod to
Fnlrlcss by marriage, endorsed a 0
draft for him on Sept. 9 and another
for 125 a fow days later. Tho drafts
wcro drawn on Mr. Fnlrless father,
residing In Toxas. Tho elder Fair
less refused to honor tho drafts and
It was up to Mr. Watson, ns an en
dorser, to mako them good. As Fair

ture to Bet him up to housekeeping,
Watson honed to bo reimbursed as
tho former could sparo tho money
from his wgaes, nnd took no legal
Last wcok, Mr. Falrless proceeded
to sell tho furniture back to tho furnl

Memphis Judgo released him, on tho
grounds that It was not a folony.
Tho costs, ndded to tho 165 which
Watson must mako good on nccount

A few personal effects were left
behind which aro largely claimed by

WANTS TO KNOW.
Dear sirs: I notice In your last
issue under "Commissioners Count
the Vote" the following: "Many bal
lots were rejected by the election of
ficers becauso the voters stamped un
der both the Republican and Band
Wagon devices. Of course this killed
the votes thus stamped."
I will ask you to please explain
why theso votes were "killed," when
theso tickets had no opposition to
each other whatever, in fact, could
Just as well have been under one de
vice so far as opposition Is concerned
And it seems to me plain enough that
the Intention of those voters in
stamping under both devices was to
vote for every candidate under theso
two devices. My understanding of
the duties of election officers in pass
ing upon a ballot, Is to determine If
plain, the intention of the voter and
so count it. I have all along contend
ed that said officers should be sup
plied with a plain set of rules of In
structlons covering tho entire work
of holding and closing an election
(I mean non-partisan instructions.
As it is now, some will say you are
required to do this, and another that
consequently, when the ballot boxes
aro returned after an election, no
two are seldom ever carried alike.
An Election Officer,
$8,600 NOW RAISED.
The last report on tho raising of
money for tho West Hickman levee
shows that $8,600 has been raised,
leaving a balance of $1,400.00 to get
This can bo procured without any
great effort. Four of our merchants
have subscribed $100 each. It will
be money well spent. If other busi
ness concerns will give as liberally
when solicited, tho full amount will
be forthcoming in a very short time
This will bo one of the best In
vestments evor inado by the cltlczns
of Hickman. Fully the cost of tho
lt-veo Is lost overy year on account
of high water forcing the factories
to stand idle for weeks.

who has been confined In tho Clinton
Jail for several days, charged wiith

bure, however, that tho trial will tako

Tlno Boar, a negro, who is also
held in connection with tho same
ttlmo, waived examination and will
bo hold to the action of tho grand
Jury tho first of tho year.
