our young men abont Richmond are so
strong headed as to wish to violate law

decision of Judge Noonan in St. Louis,
allowing base ball games in that eity
on Sunday, can justify the same here,
had better get set right at once.

Last week K. J. Ketiy and John B.
Troxell, two men who lived in n little
house on Ihe northwest corner of Shaw
and Lexington streets, were arrested
on the charge of forgery. It seems
thoy had forged tbe names of the fol
lowing citizens ot Knoxville and vicin
ity to promissory notes and sold the
same: Thos. Bathgate, Geo. Faucett,
Thomas Motlitt, Kicbard Vansant,
John Linnville and Dr. F. E. Acklcy.
How many notes they forged don't
seem to be known, as only two fell into
the hands of tbe prosecuting, attorney,
and on these two five indictments were
found against tbe parties. The par
ties wero MTaiuged on these indict
ments Saturday last, before Judge
Sandusky and entered a pica of not
guilty. Not being ablo to givo bond
they were remanded to Jail, to await
trial at the special term of court to
commence Sept. 6th. The two notes
in the bands of tbe prosecuting attor
ney are bunglingly drawn, and show
at a glance, that the names arc all
written by the same hand. Hie notes
were drawn in favor of K. J. Kelly ami
from two to three names signed to
each. The two notes especially men
tioned above were gvun as eollateial
security to the bank at Polo, and strange
to say are not indorsed by Kelly as us
ual in such transactions. Thomas
Bathgate who held a forged note or
two, took a chattel mortgage on some
personal property and thus saved him
self. We learn the Hughes Hank, In
this city has one of thu notes for $00,
which is not a very valuable piece of
property just now. Kelly and Troxell
bad taken up some of the forged paper
and it is not known exactly bow much
is standing out. Tbe parties came
here more than a year ago from Bates
oonnty, in this state, and for awhile
Kelly carried the Knoxville mail. They
were putting on a kind of water proof
roof paint, and did considerable work
around town. They were apparently
industrial and economical in thoir hab
its, and were the last men that would
have been accused of forgery. Kullv
claims he oanoot writo, aud Tru.xell is
a poor scribe if he did Ihe writing on
the forged notes.
An exchange puts a good deal of
truth in a few words In the following :
"Then are several classes of men who
can not build a city. First, thu fellows
who squeeze tho eagle on a dollar until
It squawks. Second, the whiners who
will do nothing themselves aud com
plain because some other fellow, by his
energy. Is trying to push along the city
in all that tends to its material advau
cemeut Third, the men who have ac
cumulated fortunes through the ener
gy of others, a:id who refuse to give
up a do Dor for a manufacturing estab
lishment or other enterprise that will
bring wealth to tbe city, The clusus
named and others stand as an ada
mantine wall against the prosperity of
many cities and towns. They are every
where to be tonnd. In some places
there are enough of them to stab every
movement that is calculated to build
a great and prosperous city."
