ceeded te organize The following were
the Lewis county delegates:

another said it was M. F. Marsh. The
Chairman finally stated that Phillip M
Marsh was in nomination He was
J. N. Kchee effeied the following reso
lution, which was adepted:
lltneked, ThatMaseu county disavows
any right te name the Democratic nomi
nee te succeed the Hen C. B. Poyntz,
mid recognizes the right of Lewis county
se te de; and the delegates from Masen
ceuuty agree te vote for anyene said
county may propose, and declines te
waive any rights she may have as te
Lewjs county then asked te be allowed
te consult. They retired and came back
in about five minutes, when It. D. Wilsen
stated that they bad agreed upon Judge
G. S. Wall. Judge J It. Garlaud, the
only man who had made any effort te
secure the nomination, had been ignored
by his own county.
Judge Wall was promptly en his feet
and asked that his name be withdrawn.
He had understood that Lewis county
had come down instructed for Judgp
Garland and he would stard in no man's
way. He though that his nomination
would net be for the Interest of the party.
Then everybody get mixed up. Colenol
Baldwin and It. B. Levol rushed ever te
the Lewis ceuuty delegation and a dozen
were trying te speak at ence.
Q'Hare moved te make Wall's nemlna
tien unanimous, which was seconded and
Judge Wall again protestcd in a vigorous
manner. In the din which, ensued seme
one moved te adjourn, which rcceived
several seconds but was net recognized,
by the chair. Judge Wall again stated,
that under the circumstances he could,
and would net Accept the nomination.
It. D. Wilsen took the fper and ald
that net a precinct lnjtacfyc'duiitx had
Instructed for Judge GfarhVnii. "'

Finally it was understood that Garland
had been placed in nomination. R. II.
Weed moved that the vote be taken by
counties; ngreed te. Lewis was called
and voted "no," Masen "yes," after con
sulting, and Garland was declared the
nominee. Masen county was pleased and
At this Juucture Judge Garland stepped
te the front. And he was niml. His
voice trembled with repressed passion as
he scored his brethren from Lewis. He
claimed te have been betrayed by them
and said he had tee niuch pride te accept
the nomination. He thanked his Masen
county friends and' said he ought te move
It looked like the nomination would go
begging net that no one wanted it, but
somebody seemed te be afraid somebody
would get beat. Masen wanted te shove
the honor en Lewis and vice versa. Each
wanted the ether te take the short term,
se it seemed, until Lewis, through Wil Wil
eon, pledged herself te Masen for the
Lewis declining any ether man, Themas
It. Phister nominated ex-Senater E. L.
Worthington. Kehoe again nominated
Wall and Sam Raymond of Mayslick

county men voted for Wall.
Wall was declared the neminee and the
agony was ever.
The Judge made a neat speech accept
ing the nomination, which had at last
come te him. us he thought, in a proper
way He exhorted bis friends te go te
work in earnest for him. He reminded
them that it whs but five days until the
election and told them the Republicans
could de an immense amount of work in
a short time
E L Worthington was then called for
and responded He spoke of his warm
pergenal nnd political friendship for the
nominee aud became se earnest in his en
thusiasm that he prefaced one of his sen
tences ith "Gentlc.inun of "the jury."

Ijo had IU henp friMUeptly tq at

ness for the safety of hh family, which
consisted of hla wlfe and twp little chil
dren, particularly ayihe cook slept In
a small house near the residence. Mrs.
Bryant ashed the cook te sleep In the
house that night but she gave some rea
son and refused, and nleut 9 q'ceck
Mrs. Brynnt uud the children retired,
she sleeping in a bed en ene side of the
room and the children en another bed
In an opposite corner.
Mrs. Bryant wai, awakened by some
ene coming in through the window, and
by the dim light which she left burning
she could see a burly colored
man eemlng toward her bed, followed
by two ethers. ,
The frightened woman screamed, but
hardly had the sound been uttered be
fore the foremost man struck
her en the head with a pine knot
vheh he had, knocking her into
insensibility. Th sleeping chil
dren were awakened by the" noise, but
they were terrified into silence by the
horrible brutes, who In turn committed
the hellish deed for wh&uh they came.
After the men had geno the children
tried In vain te areusutlier mother, and
then wert te a neighbor's house about
"00 yard distant, and told them what
had occurred. Mr. Bryant came home
about this time and a pese was at ence

A physician was summoned for Mrs.
Bryant, bnt it seemed that all efforts
vens useless. She was in a very deli
cate condition, having for several weeks
this spring been a patient at a female
infirmary at Berne, Oa., and was deliri
ous from her inhuman treatment and
the excitement until late Sunday night,
hen she regained eonNekmsne-ss.
The search for her aw-ailants was
without success until Sunday afternoon,
when the cook get intexk-ated and ex
plained the whole affair and who Mrs.
Bryant's assailants were. She told hew
her brothers, Jim and Berry Red en, had
made her leave Mrs Bryanfs window
unfastened, and that, though they
didn't tell her what they wanted it
opened for, she formed her own conclu
sions. A party of the infuriated citizens
went immediately te the home of the
Redens nlxjut two miles distant. The
brothers, Mjeing the posee coming, tried
te e&cape, but were captured, together
with a colored man named Will Carter,
who was with them, Mrs. Bryant was
still unconscious, and they were put
in Childersburg jail with a guard of
about one hundred men ever them until
Monday morning, when they were
taken before Mrs. Bryant, who in the
mean time had slightly recovered. She
immediately identified Carter as the
one who came In first, and thought the
ether two were his companions. Ropes
were immediately provided and the
three men hurried off te the Louisville
nnd Nashville railroad bridge across
the Cecsa river, a few hundred yards
Carter protested his innocence and
said the Reden boys were the real cul
prits. This availed nothing, however,
ns In a few minutes three dead bodies
were swinging from the bridge. The
mob fired several volleys into the life
less forms, and then disperhed. The
coroner held an Inquest Monday after
noon, and his jury decided that the men
came te their death by hanging, execu
tioners unknown. Mrs Bryant is still
in a critical condition, and her recovery
is extremely doubtful.
