MR. ENNIS
Comes Homes to Remain Awhile
With His Parents.
The friends of Thomas H. Ennis
will be glad co learn that he is now
at home with his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. W. D. Ennis, West Seventh
street, and will remain here for a
time.
Inadvertence is sometimes expen
sive, as was illustrated recently when
Mr. Ennis was in Huntington, W.
Va. Haying sold some stock of the
Empire Realty & Mortgage Co., of
which he had been manager, to a
party in Huntington, when the
transfer of the stock was made. Mr.
Enni3 endorsed" the check for the
company as "manager" instead of
"agent." The man who bought the
stock wanted to return the stock and
get back his money, and it seems
bad Mr. Ennis arrested when he had
gone to Peoria, III., on a charge of
forgery. But there was no attempt
at forgery, and as soon as Mr. Earns
company learned of his trou
the matter was speedily adjust
ed. Mr. Ennis was so mortified over
his arrest that he attempted self
deBtruction. IMPORTANT MEETING

TOBACCO NOW
ROLLING IN
The Long Wished For Tobacco
"Season" Came Thursday
Night. ,
THE DOLLARS BEGIN TO ROLL
Small Growers' Money Always
Opens Up Winter's Busi
ness.
Farmersare busy now. The long
wished' for season for handling to
bacco is on, and tobacco began
to move ' .as," early , as Thurs
day noon;' Even up into the
night hours Thursday wagon sheavi
ly loadfed wth the weed were com
ing in. : -
The heavy ,drop in 1 temperature
yesterday morning will have no nc
ticeable effect .on efforts of farmers
to deliver their crops as soon as pos
siele. The larger part of the new
crop will be taken down from the
barns and hulked before stripping,
but a large per cent, will be deliv
ered on the stalk to the strippers
and put on sale. Those who have
sold to the Regie, Imperial and
American Snuff Co. managers will
put their cnjps into the condition
prescribed in the written contract.
This will, of course necessitate much
work and delay before delivery.
But Christmas money will be
plentiful m a few days. The small
growers who have not Bold are num
erous and it is the money realized
on their crops that will first be put
into circulation. It is that clas3 of
growers -who always need money at
this time of the year. However
frugal they may be. along toward
Christmas-tide their resources have
been about exhausted and they must
of necessity sell their crops to buy
necessities. Many of them stint
themselves up to that period rather
than make application to the banks
for an advance on their crops.
Rev. D. M. Harrison, pastor of
the Presbyterian church at Madison
ville, has resigned.

COL. HOWELL,
Farmer, Lawyer, Speaker, Be
fore High School.
Last Wednesday was a red-letter
day with the pupils of the High
School. Col. W. ft. Howell had been
invited to address the pupils and
teachers of the school and the board
of trustees, from whom the invita
tion enme, was present.
As a political speaker Mr. Howell
ranks high and during his term of
office as Commonwealth's Attorney
he waa a most successful prosecutor.
When ho made his debut as a lectur
er at the High School building he
scored a big success.
His theme was "Supervisorship."
Mr. Howell approached his subject
with some trepidation. This sounds
a little strange, no doubt, to those
who know him well. He is all right
when he talks to a crowd of men,
but when it comes to telling a lot of
pretty school girl3 something that
will inspire them to reach a high
ideal he gets trembly. But when he
got his bearings he brought out with
great force in choice la.guage the
duty of the young ladies and gentle
men before him to prepare them
selves for taking the places of those
who must soon pass away to make
much of the opportunity before
them to make life worth living.
Mr. Howell speaks in glowing
terms of young Mr. John Dotion,
who had been chosen to introduce
him to his auditors. Mr. Dndson is
a young man of bright intellect and
has a great future before him.

SHAMELESS
GOV. BLEASE
Curses the Constitution and
Women Leave the
Room.
POOR OLD SOUTH CAROLINA;
Blushes When Her Governor
Makes a Spectacle of
Himself.
Richmond, Va., Dec. 6. Fully
half of the fifty women in attend
ance at the conference of governors
yesterday hurriedly departed from
the meeting when Gov. Cole L.
Blease, for the second time defend
ing the policy of lynching negroes
guilty of criminal assault shouted,
"To hell with the constitution." -
Gov. Blease's declaration was made
in response to a question asked by
Gov. Joseph N. Carey of Wyoming,
who desired to know if the South
Carolina executive had taken an
oath to uphold the constitution and
laws of his state, and if those laws
did not protect negroea as well as
whites.
"I will answer that question," re
plied Gov. Blease. "When the con
stitution steps between me and the
defense of the virtue of the white
women of my state, I will resign my
commission, tear it up and throw it
to the breezes. As I have said be
fore, 'to hell with the constitution"
When several women present
arose and left the hall Gov. Blease
ceased speaking.
Richmond, Va., Dec. 6. In the
name of the state of South Carolina,
Governor Blease served notice to the
governors' conference that lynchers
of negro assailants of white women
in his Btate would go unpunished.
He declared he would not order out
soldiers to protect such and said:
"In South Carolina let it be under
stood that when a negro assaults a
white woman all that is needed is
that they get the right man, and
they who get him will neither need
nor receive a trial."
