POPULISTS SOON TO MEET.
State Chairman cr-.w.- Issues a Call
to His Co:nmittee.
BIRMINGHAx, Ala, Nov. 30.-State
Chairman G. B. Crowe of the Populist
party has issued a call for a meeting of
the state executive committee of that
party at the Opera House hotel in Bir
mingham Dec. 14. Discussing the prob.
able action to be taken at the meeting,
Dr. Crowe said:
"The future course of the Populists
in Alabama will be discussed and defi
nite action taken in shaping it. It is
not at all improbable that a senatorial
candidate will be out in the field by our
pary, but who he will be cannot be
stated at this time, except that he will
be a Populist. The Populists will main
tain their organization. There may be
a few willing and ready to go back to
the Democratic ranks, as was done by
Kolb, Bowman and a few others, but
the rank and file will remain true and
steadfast and the Democratic party will
be given a fight. A full state ticket
will be put in the field by the PopulistS.
Other matters will be taken up, includ
ing the reorganization of the party,
which will be considered by the com
mittee and effected along stronger lines
than ever before."
Dr. Crowe is very much pleased at the
refusal of the recent conference of Pop
ulist leaders held in this city, which, by
the way, he did not attend, to adopt
a resolution proposing the abandonment
of the Populist organization and the re
turn of all Populists to the Democratic

It was suggested that these questions,

A CHARLESTON SENSATION.
Man Fails in an Efrart to Prevent His
Wife L -avinag.
CHARLESTON, Dec. .-Something of a
sensation was caused at the Southern
railway station in this city last evening
by the efforts of Alex L Easterby of
Charleston to prevent his wife from
leaving the city with Dr. J. P. Johnson
of Ridgeville, S. C.
It appears that Mr. Easterby and his
wife have been separated for some time
by mutual agreement, he doing noth
ing for her support.' Dr. Johnson has
befriended the lady to the extent of en
gaging her as his housekeeper and gov
ernsss for his children.
Easterby objected to his wife accepting
the place, which, however, is agreeable
to her relatives and friends. The police
refused to arrest Mrs. Easterby, when
called on by her husband to do so, un
less he had a warrant. She went away
on the train.
Easterby, it is understood, has en
gaged an attorney to proceed against
Dr. Johnson for carrying away his wife
against his consent.
