TWO IMPORTANT RULINGS.
Supreme Court of Tenne-ssee Renders
Decisions at Knoxville.
KNoXvILLE. Nov. 16.-The supreme
court yesterday decided two of the most
important cases to come before it this
term. It upheld the uniform textbook
law passed last spring and denied the
American Tobacco company's effort to
enforce the sale of cigarettes in Ten
The book law provides for a uniform
system of books to be used in city and
county schools, the contracts for fur
nishing these books to be let by the
state to the lowest and best bidders.
These contracts were let in the summer
and soon thereafter the American Book
company, through a negro school
teacher, begun a legal fight on the law.
The court holds it is constitutional.
The cigarette case was brought on ac
count of a revenue tax provision having
been made by the same legislature, li
censing the sale of cigarettes. At the
same time there existed the 1897 law
against cigarette selling. J. Blaufield,
a local dealer, paid the license and sold
cigarettes. He was fined, then a test
case was made by the American To
bacco company to test whether the anti
cigarette law was affected by the reve
The court holds the revenue assess
ment cannot forego the criminal statute.

Sensational Address by the Negro
Bishop at 31acon.
MAcoN, Nov. 17.-Bishop H. M. Tur
ner delived a sensational address this
morning to the Georgia conference of
the African Methodist church. He
uirged every possible opposition by
Georgia negroes to the Hardwick bill
to limit the suffrage now before the
legislature. He said he Iroposed to
take the stump himself and implored
every minister present to do likewise.
He said the law wor ld reduce every
negro to the ignoble status of a free
slave and their condition would be
worse than before the war. It would
outlaw every black man and woman.

notoriety and was backed by the "poor

farmer Kills Men Who Were Driving
Away With ills Wife.
GREENviLLE, S. C., Nov. 17. -Dr.
Thomas E. James, a prominent physi
cian of this place, and his son, Wade
Hampton James, were killed near Six
Mile church, just before midnight, by
Sam Lanier, a prosperous farmer of
The alleged cause of the doable kill
ing was that Dr. James and his son
were driving away, so Lanier thought,
with the latter's wife.
Dr. James and his son left Greenville
efew days ago to visit the vicinity of
Six Mile mouitain. On their way they
stopped at the house of Sam Lanier
and there, it is said, by some means,
procured Mrs. Lanier and the three
started toward their destination, which
is unknown. They had not gone very
far, however, when Sam Lanier inter
cepted them. He had learned, it is rep
resented, that they had driven away
with his wife.
The irate husband, armed with a shot
gun, started in pursuit. As soon as
Mrs. Lanier saw her husband approach
ing, she, it is said, leaped from the
buggy and disappeared in the darkness.
Just as she leaped Sam Lanier emptied
the contents of his shotgun into the
bodies of the men he thought were car
rying his wife away.
Lanier then went to Pickens and sur
rendered to the sheriff.

The above noted serious and unex

train on the eve of the forward move
ment for Ladysmith has apparently
convinced the British that the advance
will be contested step by step. The
