point of this explosion at once. Mr.
Reid, who was then the correspondent

the doorkeepers at the War Department
had received directions that Mr.
Reid was not to be admitted. But
when he sent his card in to the
President they could not refuse it. Mr.
Reid came in and was greeted by Mr.

All the Half-Breeds Who Remain in
Georgia to Emigrate to the Nation.
CHIcAGo, September 19.-A dispatch
from Atlanta, Ga., says: Mr. A. E. Ivy,
of the Cherokee Nation, is in the city,
as ambassador to secure the emigration
to the nation of all half-breeds who re
main in Georgia. It is over fifty years
since the Cherokees removed from Geor
gia, but many who had formed white
alliances were left behind, and their
children ate among the most substantial
citizens of the State. Mr. Ivy says that
the Cherokees have resolved upon main
tainining their existence, and wish to
increase their number by the addition
of all who are willing to return to the
old tribe. In a few weeks seventy-five
half-breed families will leave for the na

Harlan County's Fighting Citizens-A
Proclamation Issued by Governor Buck
ner-The Story of the War.
PNEVILLE., Ky., September 20.-Gov.
Buckner has issued a proclamation to
the law-abiding people, explaining why
be has ordered the State militia to Har
Ian County, the scene of the Howard
Turner feud. In it he said:
-You must discharge your duty as
good citizens to show that you deserve
to be sustained. If you refuse to dis
charge your duties as good citizens, you
- have no right to ask others to discharge
those duties for you. I call upon you,
therefore, to respond promptly to the
summons of the civil authorities, to
obey them implicitly in their attempts
to arrest and bring to speedy justice, or,
if resisted by force, to shoot down, un
der the otders of the civil authorities,
the assassins who threaten in your midst
the peace and welfare of society."
- The troops are now marching toward
Harlantown, thirty-three miles from
here, across the Cumberland Mountains.
The Howard-Turner feud began fif
teen years ago. William Turner, the
father of the numerous family of that
name, was a very wealthy man and
owned several thousand acres of land in
the County, on a part of which Harlan
town was built. He and some of his
relatives became involved in a difficulty
with Mr. C. Hurst, a prominent lawyer,
over a client of the latter's. Hurst
'was killed, iceiving a dagger in his
heart from the hands of Turner himself
. or one of his henchmen.
Exasperated at this act, for Hurst was
a popular and esteemed gentleman,
some of the most prominent citizens,
among whom were the Gilberts, - low
ards, Halls, Deys and Spurlocks, arose,
with William Gilbert, a wealfhy citizen,
at their head, and, by the aid of money
and influence, had the guilty parties
brought to justice and given a life sen
tence in the penitentiary.
The Turners swore, revenge against
William Gilbert, and one court day two
years afterward, while talking to a
friend, Gilbert was shot from ambush
by young Will Turner, son :of Gerge B.

War was declared. Some time after
ward Wick Howard, cousin of Will, got
in a row with Bob Turner, a brother of
Will Turner, and Bob was killed.
Peace reigned for several days after
this. Then, by prearranged plan, the
male members of both families met at
Harlantown to settle the trouble. Both
clans were armed. E pitched battle en

Bailey, innocent bystanders, were killed.
Two Turners were wounded.
The next fight took place in June last.
The Turners took possession of the Nolan
brothers' store. The Nolans, supported
by the Howards, armed themselves, and
a-:pitched battle took place in the street.
Several were wounded. The Turners
then took refuge in the court house,
and being strongly armed and well pro

which several persons were wounded,

than had been expected; and when 1
went in, I learned from both the Presi

seemed only to add to the apparent cer

storm has now spent its fury, and the

A little band of shipwrecked mariners

rare courage, their two little children,
a boy and a girl, and thirteen sailors.
They were exposed for two days and
two nights to the fury of the elements,
every minute anticipating that a wave
would sweep them from their water
logged craft. They were picked up just
as they had abandoned all hope of res

his brave little wife nursed his wounds
as he lay in a berth on the Yemassee.

Sunday night the storm had increased
to a wild hurricane. The ship was now

The vessel now had over ten feet of

to keep her head up to the wind Capt.

Mr. Morris's Death Was Sudden After
His Wife Administered Chloroform.
REIDSvILLE, N. C., September 16.
The Corner's inquiry into the death of
i. E. Morris, a well known merchant,
was resumed to-day. Mrs. Morris ad
mits having administered a small por
tion of the chloroform which caused her
husband's death. She says he then
asked her to leave the room as he wanted
rest. Half an hour later Mrs. Morris
told the cook to go upstairs to her hus
band's room and see if he was asleep.
The woman returned and said Mr. Mor
ris was dead, but the wife told her she
was mistaken, and that Mr. Morris was
asleep. Sam, the hostler, was sent up
stairs by the cook, and returning re
ported that his master was dead. Mrs.
Morris said he, too, was mistaken. The
la ut.dress finally went upstairs and made
a similar report on her return. Mrs.
Morris said it could not be, but did not
go ups:airs herself.
Sam went for a physician and told
some friends on the way that his master
had died. Wen the neighbors arrived
Mrs. Morris asked them not to go up
stairs, sayihg that she did not think her
husband was dead and that they might
disturb him. The friends entered the
room which smelled strongly of chloro
form and found an empty two-ounce
vial of the drug on one of the pillows.
It was only a foot away from the face
of Mr. Morris. A handkerchief was
over his mouth and he lay dead, with
his hands crossed over his chest.
The theories are four-suicide, acci
dent on the victim's part, accident on
Mrs. Morris's part ind murder. Since
her husband's death Mrs. Morris has
been prostrated and at times hysterical.
Once she leaped from a window and ran

The South's Opportunity.
The present' year will be memorable
for its blessings to the farmers. The
South has produced the largest crops of
vegetables, fruits, hay, forage and grain
that have ever been known. Unless
there is some general misfortune to be
fall the cotton crop, the present will
be the largest ever produced. In all the
history of the South, the abundance and
money value of its agricultural produe
tions have not been equalled.
With the start given to the farmers
by the proceeds of this year's crops.
they ought to be in a position to be in
dependent. They will become so, if
they will only resolve to live at home by
raising their own provisions for the sup
port and maintenance of the household
The yield of corn has been so prolific
in the South that there never was a
more opportune time for the farmers to
raise their own meat. With a cotton
crop of a money value this year of
from $350,000,000 to $400,000,000, the
South will never be in a better condition
to pull itself out of the thraldom of
debt and dependence. In the greatest
money producing crop of the world, the
South stanids practically without a suc
cessful competitor. God so made our
soil and climate as to make it the home
of the cotton plant which yields its
snowy staple in such excellence and
abundance as to be nowhere else
equalled. With food crops in quantity
sufficient for domestic consumption, the
South would be the garden spot of the
Union and our people the most inde
pendent and prosperous in the world.
-The Confederate government enacted
a law to restrict the production of cot
ton. If the Farmer's Alliance, which
has already accomplished so much in
its fight with the jute trust, would insist
that the farmers and planters of the
South shall raise corn and meat enough
for their sustenance, the South will be
independent and prosperous.
Let the Farmers' Alliance do this and
the great battle against trusts and
monopolies will have been fought and
won.-Augusta Chlron cle.

some woman, despite her years and the
reckless manner in which she has given
herself up to her passions, and even yet
she has a marvelous attraction for a
certain sort of man. Old Sharon was
her dupe and Terry was completely
under her thumb and they are only the
most conspicuous among a long proces
sion of men who have found her at
tractive and dangerous. She has tre
mendous courage and vitality, and,
while very passionate, can be as cool
and sharp as steel when she is playing a
game with circumstances. She comes
of a good family -a family that had no
money, however-and her passion
for intrigue, excitement and adven
ture has induced her to break with
all the traditions of her station, and has,
by the way, succeeded in keeping her
pockets filled in one way or another ever
since she began her career. She is about
5 feet 6 in height, extremely well made,
and is still graceful, lithe and slender.
She has a pale, olive countenance with
delicate features and a pair of starry
brown eyes, and her thick, wavy, brown
hair has never been cut in a bang, but
is brushed loosely back and ripples
around her brow and cars. 11er eye
brows are very black and arched, and
her lids white and drooping, biut her
mouth shows the result of the life she
h~s led, and has grown coarse and hard.
Iowever the rest of the face may es

mouth always reveals what the life has
been, and hers is not a pleasant or a
trustworthy mouth. She is tremendously
clever, and no man who talked to her
half an hour could believe anything
against her unless he had previously
steeled his heart against her plausible

Early Frenc Dresses for Autumn
Cashmere and Camel's Hair Gowns.
The first French dresses imported for
autumn repeat many of the designs
brought out late in the summer by Pa
risian modistcs. Round waists, full
sleeves and straight skirts reappear with
variations. Jacket waists and elaborate
fronts of corsages remain in vogue and
basques are not wholly aban'Ioned.
Some features of the directoire coat are
retained, and new ones are added. Pas
sementerie, braiding, fur and feathers,
with velvet cut bias and also velvet rib
bons, are the trimmings of - the first
dark dresses. The round waist is with

may be either plain or full on the shoul
ders; its fullness below is pleated or
gathered to the points at the waist line,
and it is trimmed there by vandyke
points of embroidery or of gassemen
terie, or else it is edged by a folded
ribbon, fastened by a bow without ends
on the left side. The round, shallow
yoke, so often mentioned, will still be
made of velvet, silk, moire on embroi
dery, or of the dress material covered
by passementerie. The high standing
collar and mutton-legged sleeves will be
made for most woolen dresses; cloth
dresses, however, seldom have very full
sleeves, as they cannot be worn under a
cloth jacket or fitted coat. The skirts
of new dresses are hung to appear almost
straight, yet those of heavy fabrics have
one or two short steels in their founda
tion skirt, merely to support them, not
to add to their size; the pad bustle-s are
omitted altogether. The fronts and sides
of many skirts are perfectly flat, while
all are made full in the back by means
of gathers or pleats, or some lengthwise

is shot with gold, brown with green, or
gold with brown, red with blue and
green with red, producing many new
effects. The dahlia prune, and old.

new fabrics and promise to be popular.
Chocolate with much cream in it will be
a stylish shade for autumn and green is
combined with this shade. The gray
greens are shown in dark and in light
shades in fine woolens and are made up
with velvet of the new mahogany shade
called in Paris le Buf~alo Bill.
-The first autumn dresses will be of
cashmere or of camel's hair, in shades
of dahlia, castor brown, grayishi blue,
Eiffel red or mahogany, trimmed with
black pointed passementerie or six cords
in open designs. The round waist, full
and slightly pointed, will be trimmed
with three vandyke points of the gimp in
frout, and sometimes in the back also,
beginning just below the collar, and on
the shoulders; that in the middle is the
deepest; and to hold it well the cash
mere of the waist should be lapped to
the left shoulder, and hooked from the
left shoulder down, though the waist
lining is hooked in front. The fulness
in front and back is dmwn in small
pleats to the points at the waist line.
No darts are seen, and there is not
more thani one side form; indeed,
in the gentiine. French waist the
only seams arc those under the
arms. The standing collar is fast
cued on the left side, and should
be covered with passementerie. The
sleeves are in one piece, full at the top
and shaped to fit the arms below the el
bow. A point of passemnenterie is placed
at the top, pointing downward, and at
the wrists, pointing up~ward. Black
ribbon, three inches wide, is folded -less
than two inches in width, and laid
smooth around the pointed end of the
waist, fasteining on the left side with a
bowv. The straight round skirt mounted
on a fouindation skirt. is trimmed all
around the foot, or else only in front
and onl the sides, with upturned points
of the black passementerie. These
straight skirts should not have their
placket-hole opening in front or back,
but-on one side, usually the left, as it
can best be kept closed there. It is also
a good plan to p)ermanently attach the
belted skirt to the waist, tacking the
belt across the back and sides of the
pointed bodice inside at the waist line.
Short sleeveless jackets of velvet, of
faille or ot' moire, will form the bodies
of many dresses of silk or of fine wool.
The dress material will be down the
middle of the front of the waist, shirred
closely at top) and bottom, or drooping
in blouse fashion. The little square
jacket of velvet will fall opon to show
the front. It is without revets, reaches
only to the waist line, and is square-car
nieredl. The back miay be straight across
the waist or slightly pointed, and sorae
times two tabs arc adlded in basque
fashion. Silk cord in braiding patter'ns
trims velvet jackets. Silk jackets are
sometimes black on colored dresses, andl
are then faced with the color of the
dress, andl may have revers of the same:
or a black moire jacket on a Henrietta
cloth waist may have green or mahogany
rev'ers and collar, and cord to match on
the edge. Rather large, full sleeves of

THE CRONIN CASE. .
AN INGENIOUS STORY INVENTED
BY THE CONSPIRATORS
To Account for the Brutal Murder of Dr.
Cronin and to Create Public Sentiment
in Favor of the Suspects Now on Trial.
But the Scheme Fails to Work.
CHICAGO, September 19.-The morn

having furnished evidence that Dr.
Cronin was murdered by emissaries of
the British government, as a plot of the
The Times says: "Another scheme on

in circulation yesterday in behalf of the

studied concoction, is only second to
the plot itself whereby lie murder was
carried out. The plan was worthy of the

The same paper prints an interview
with George E. May, who is supposed to
have been Miss LeCaron's correspond
ent. He says: "I have turned over no
letters. to Mr. Forrest or any living soul."
In his most emphatic manner, he says:
"If 1 have received any letters from
Miss LeCaron or any one else, referring
to the Cronin case, or any one connected
with it in the remotest way, you may
cut off every finger on my right hand."
"But didn't you take a buggy ride
with Mike Coughlin? Isn't there that
much foundation for his story at least?"
"In answer to that question I want to
say that I don't associate with ,uch
men," he said, indicating that no more
rides would go anyhow. "I am an
American, not a Clan-na-Gael. So far
as I am concerned-and speaking for
myself I speak for my family-the

and it can't make use of me."
