The Notorious Kentucky Outluu, Cen
vlcted of Murder.
Pi.vevii.le, Ky., Aug. 25. Berry
Turner, the notorious desperado and
mountain killer who has terrorized the
neighborhood of Seuth America, in this
county for the past few years, has been
tried and convicted In the circuit court
The jury brought In a verdict Wed
nesday morning, and the sentence If
'21 years in the penitentiary. The crime
for which Turner was convicted was the
murder of Isaac Lewis, und the opinion
here Is, that he was let off exceedingly
light A death penalty or a life sen
tence was predicted.
Mr. Hal S. Cerbett mnde one of the
' ablest pleas for the defence ever heard
at the bar. The crime for which Turner
was tried was committed nine years
age. Isaac Lewis was u young man
living with Turner, who, for some cause
never brought out made up his mind te
4 Turner and young Lewis hud been te
Plneville, where Turner get drunk and
went home in that condition. When en
the read he borrowed a gun and told
several partie3 that he intended te "kill
a man with it"
Lewis reached the Turner home first,
and en the return Berry, the outlaw,
concocted a schema whereby he might
kill the young man. He accordingly
told him te go out and fix a mark
en a pump, as he wished te try his new
Lewis, suspecting no wrong, did se,
when Turner, Instead of tiring at the
- mark, turned the gun en the young
man. Lewis lived until the next day,
when he died.
The murderer did net attempt te flee,
and as there was some delay about
burying the remains, he made the re
mark te a witness, that if the body was
net taken away from his heuse that he
would threw It ever the bluff and let
the hogs eat it
The plea set up by the defense was
that the killing was accidental. Turner
has killed several men since, and has
twice been arrested and escaped from
custody for this particular crime.

WEEKLY CR0L' BULLETIN.
Condition of the Small Creps Throughout
Kentucky Up te Yesterday.
The weather conditions during the past
week ever the largest portion of the
state have been favorable te growing
crops. A geed many sections, however,
send very encouraging reports and there
are very few thnt send really dishearten
ing ones, The only complaint iu regard
te staple crops is lack of geed rains.
The rainfall during the week was very
unevenly distributed. In the Northern
counties, except in the extreme Western
and the Eastern parts of the state, there
were geed rains. The counties of Han
cock. Jeffersen, Oldham, Shelby Fayette,
Kenten and ethers adjoining had tine
rains en the 18th and 10th. Over most
ether sectieus there was very little rain
during the weeu.
The temperature 1ms been slightly in
excess of the normal, except in the
Southwestern part of the state, where it
was about normal. There has been no
lack of sunshine.
The dreuth that has prevailed in some
sections has undoubtedly done great
damages, still the geucral tone of the re
ports Is equally as encouraging as that of
the last week.
A general rain would he almost sutli sutli
cieut te insure a fair crop of corn, to te to
bncce and hemp, except In u few sec
tions where great damage has already re
sulted from the dreuth.
Repoitsen corn arccentlictlng. While
the majority are faverable and fairly
geed, a geed many ethers are very tils
ceurnging. Especially is late planted
corn in the dry sections suffering; and
there will be a considerable shertage of
this crop in these sectieus.
Tobacco has net suffered te the extent
that corn has; even In thesu counties
where the dreuth is severest. A geed
many lepnrts indicate an excellent crop,
while n complaint Is an exception. Cut
ting nnd housing Is In progress in some
sections; nnd the largest part of the crop
Is expected te he saved before frost.
Pastures In the Central part of the
state are bndly in need of rain.
Much complaint U being mnde of the
peer fruit crop, soine lute fruits, espec
ially grapes, retting badly.

Everybody who has attended the first

ment is doing its utmost te make The

Notwithstanding the fact that they have
been handicapped in some anneving ways
both days have been up te the high 'stand

The absurd roneit of diphtheria, which

kept many ever-timid people away.
Tlieic was a geed crowd en hand yes

one. The show of stock in the arena was

Adverse te the Striken The Head
't of the Order Ezpreaa Sympathy.
Bufpau), N. Y., Ang. 25. At raid
night Wednesday night Mr. Sweeney,
the head of the switchmen's order, offic
ially recognized the fact that the strike
movement ei switchmen, which was in
augurated twelve days a$e in this city,
had failed. In the official terms of tlla
Order, the strike was "declared off."
The men wle were formerly employed
as switchmen in the railway yards bera
will be notified by thelr local officials ,
thnt the purpofce for which they quit
their employment has net been accetn-
pllshcd, and thut they are new at lib
erty te get back their places if they can.
The beginning of the end of what was,
until hist Sunday, an almost general
btrike of the switchmen In the Buffalo
railroad yards, wns marked by Mr.
Sweeney's appeal te the heads of ether
orders of railway werlcers te meet him
in conference in this city. Mr. Sweeney
was brought face te face with the fact
that there wa no longer any strike of
switchmen in the Buffalo yards.
The evident feet that the companies
had resumed the netural conduct of
their business without the men who had
left their employ with Mr. Sweeney's
sanction pressed home te the grand
master the conviction that bis local fel
lowers had become no longer striking
switchmen, but only idle men whose
work is the throwing et switches, but
whose positions had been forfeited
without profit te themselves. Their
leader was brought te sec by dally de- '
velepments in the yards that If his men
were saved at all some power beyond
his resources or theirs must be in
Mr. Swucney knew that his cause was
lest. He turned, as a last resort, toward
the ether organlatlens of railway
workers, arid his invitations te Messrs.
Sargent, Clark, Arthur, Wilkinson and
Thursten were vislWe indications that
the switchmen must confess defeat
without fraternal aid.
At a meeting of tle heads of the dif
ferent roll-way organizations It was de
cided net te order a sympathetic strike.
They, however, expressed sympathy for
the striking switchmen.
