Saturday afternoon Dr. Kinsey's so:

body. The negro took out a knif<
from her pocket and began to abus,
Mr. Kinsey, who insisted that sh<
hush stating to her that he did no
mean any harm by the remark, whic1
was jokingly madle.
,'Got a Gun.
She continued her abuse and short

home, returned with her husband, Jo
Freeman, she carrying a gun, Mr
Kinsey was informed of this fact an<
went to his home and returned wit]
his gun, which he put in Mr. Brat

this came over to the store and in
structed his son to put the gun u:
and go to Magistrate Wilson and ta'k
out a warrant for the negroes an<
have them arrested. This Mr. Kinse:
did and turned the warrant over t
Constable Maxey, who went afte
Williams to malke the arrest. Maxe:
appointed Dr. Kinsey and others a
special constables to aid him in maki

The party proceeded to the horn
of the Freemans, but just befor

e Bishop Hoss of the Methodist Church
Says There Will be No
e Nashville. Tenn., June 21.-"The
church is going to contend for it and
not surrender a hair's breadth," said
r I Bishop Hoss last night, referring to'
the action of the board of trust of
- Vanderbilt University in refusing to
seat the' three members elected by
a the general conference of the Meth
odist Episcopal-church, South, to fill
the vacancies in that body. The bish
- op threw down the gauntlet to the
t board of trustees, declaring that "the
- church believes that the decision of!i
e the commission (appointed by the!
e church to consider the university
I matter), was in every way sound and
just and it will contend for it to the a
- end." S
"The issue has been fairly joined,"
esaid the bishop, "and there will be no
compromise. The naked question is!
whether the church, which originatedi9
the university and which by the sol
e emn affirmation of the trustees them- 9
I selves put on their own records three' n
years ago, owns the university has
'any right to control it.
"The notion of ownership without
control," continued Bishop Hoss, "is
the emptiest piece of humbuggery
th .vis ever sought to be perpe
tuated. If the church does not con
trol the university, it intends to know
the fact, and the sooner the matter
can be determined the better it will .
r be for all concerned."
The bishop stated that while no de
finite action coild be taken until a!
meeting of the college of bishops is:
held, there is no doubt at all in his~
mind that there would be a suit, andb
that the matter would never be giv
en up1 by the church until it was
convinced beyond a doubt that it did
not have the right contended for.6
"There is not the shadow of a
doubt about the question being car-'
ried in favor of the church," he con- c
tinued. "The trustees profess to a
have applied to the law of the State, c
when as a matter of fact they have
done nothing of the sort. The only a
elaborate interpretation of the laws a
'on the subject is the one that was
made by the commission appointed -
by the general conference. The trus- *
tees -have rebelled against that and *
have applied to the individual opin- *
ions of two or three lawyers, who *
were selected for the express pur- *
pose of hearing their own side of the
case. The church believes that the i
decision of the commission is in ev- F
ery way sound and just and will con-S
tend for it to the end."s
The general board of education of:
the MIethodist Ejiscopal church,'
r' South, of which Bishop Hoss is pres
e ident. w.ill meet Thursday morning.e
While the bishop did not say thatan
1 action in the Vanderbilt controversys
would be taken, it is highly probable
- that.the matter will come up.
