son and says that he will stop these
acts of lawlessness that have been

rest and conviction of the person or
1persons who committed arson when
the storehouse of Mr W E Wall
of the fifteenth civil district of
Montgomery county was burned to
t e ground at 2 oclock Wednesday

Apparently the outrages in that

are increasing and there has hardly
been a night that some farmer has
not been made to suffer as a result
of the visits of the night riders
GOVERNORS PROCLAMATION
IFollowing is N the full text of the
document handed out from the
Governors office after the confer
ence with the citizens of Montgome
ry and Robertson countiesI
Whereas Ithaving been brought
to my attention that continued acts
of depredation are being committed J
in the counties of Montgomery and
Robertson by persons riding at night I
and in disguise who are terrorizing
the citizensbringing the law into dis
repute and disorganizing society
and it being further brought to my
attention that such > person or perI
sons have been destroying growing I
crops of tobacco burning houses j t
and committing other depredations i f
Now therefore in order that the t
guilty party or parties may be ap j
prehended and properly punished j
I Malcolm R Patterson by virtue of I
the authority in me vested by law
do hereby offer a reward of 1500
for the arrest and conviction of any I
party or parties destroying crops
of tobacco in either of said counties b
said reward to be paid upon convic
tion of the offender oroffenders
And whereas it further having
been brought to my attention that
the crime of arson was committed
by these night riders at 2 oclock on
the morning of August 14 1907 by
burning the store house and proper I
ty of W E Wall of the Fifteenth I
civil district of Montgomery county
Now therefore I Malcolm R
Patterson by virtue of the authority
in me vested do hereby offer an ad
ditional reward of twentyfive hun
dred dollars for the arrest and con
viction of the person or persons
committing said arson
The purposeof these rewards is
o prevent if possible the high
handed outrages which have recent
ly occurred in the counties mention
ed and if these rewards are not
sufficient and the sheriff of the
county cannot control the situation
it may be hereafter necessary in
addition to the two rewards to take
such further and additional steps as
Imay be proper and such as will 1
effectually prevent further depreda
tions upon property in the future
uIn testimony whereof I hereunto
set my hand and seal this 15th day Vi
of August 1907

Still Open For Busi

BOTH SIDES ARE FIRM
Attempts at Arbitration at
Chicago Have Borne
No Fruit
Chicago Aug 16The Postal and
Western Union Telegraph companies
yesterday reported their offices on
the Board of trade The operators
were comparatively a few and the
amount of business transacted
was less than normal Both com
panics declared however that they
s
would be able to improve conditions
later in the day
The attempts at arbitration by
Commissioner Neill rand other out
side parties have up to the present
time borne no fruit whatever
News from New York is that the
two telegraph companies are nearing
normal conditions and they assert
that the worst is over
The officers of the union still ex
press confidence in the oetcome and
dispute the telegraph companies
claims that business is being handled
satisfactorily They say they are
receiving canstant additions to their
ranks and deny that any union men
have applied for reinstatement
Meets Monday

Planters Protective Association will

Belived To Have Burned
Walls Store at Fredonia
Tenn
COAL OIL SIGNS FOUND
William Daniels Tobacco
Patch Near by was also
Pulled Up
Clarksville Tenn Aug 16The
little town of Fredonia this county
was thrown into a state of excite
ment Wednesday morning by the
burning of the generallmerchandise
store of W E Wall a prominent
farmer and nonAssocation man
At an early hour Mr Walls store
was discovered to be on fire by a man
name Hunter He noticed the coal
1oil which had been poured on the
porch and one side of the store
In a comparatively short time the
building and its contents were de
stroyed There was no protection
and if there had been it would have
done but little good sofatdid the
building burn The fire is believed t <
Yhave been caused by night riders
=
The loss is estimated at 4500 with
1700 insurnce
About the same time eight acres
of tobacco of William Dan
iel on the farm of Mrs Elizabeth
Nicholson whichjs only a short dis
tance from Fredonia was pulled up
and destroyed MrsNicholson is sev
enty years of age and is prostrated
by the outrage to which she has
been subjected From the tracka
that were made in the field it is
thought there were a large number
in the party that did this work Mr
Wall was a member of I the Assoca
tion at one time but refused to sign
the pledge this year and the opinion
previals that the burning of the store
was done as a retaliation for this re
fusal June 17 he received a letter
in which he was asked to either joia t
the Assocation or leave the country
He was also told that he had accused
certain A8socation men of scraping
his plant beds and was advised to
keep quiet aboutit or stand the con
sequences
Mr Daniel has never been a men
ber of the Assocation and the same
j opinion prevails in regard to the CvV
struction of his crop
A message was sent to Nashville
and bloodhounds were sent from that
city arriving at Fredonia about 10
oclock The dogs started from the
store andfollowed track about 20G
yards when they were unable to ga
any further They were carried to J
Mr Daniels tobocco patch but fail
ed to accomplish anything The men
went to the store either horseback
or in buggies and the place where
the horses were hitched when the
men went in to the tobacco patclr
