Luther Beech, of Bledsoe county,
was shot and killed last Sunday, on
lie mountain, twelve miles from Mc
Minnville,- by Frazier, Sheriff of
Bledsoe county, and one of his depu
ties named Sherman.
Mr. Sara Denby of this county, had
been in Sequachie valley buying
sheep, and had John Blevins and Lu
ther Beech hired to help him drive
them,' Frazier and Sherman were
in this county in search of a horse
thief, and met up with the party of
sheep drivers on the Pikeville road
at a point about twelve miles from
McMinnville. Frazier had a war
rant for Beech, and attempted to ar
rest him, but lie resisted, and we un
derstand several shots were passed
between them, fall taking shelter
behind trees. Blevins, who is also a
constable of Bledsoe county, told
Beech t,hey would kill him, and ad
vised him to surrender. Beech said
he would surrender to Blevins, but
not to Frazier and his deputy. Blev
ins therefore secured the warrant
from Frazier, and took Beecli under
arrest, and while thus in the custody
of Blevins,' Frazier and Sherman
closed in and fired upon him, one
shooting him in the hip with a Win
chester rifle, the other in the head
with a shot gun. Beech in the mean
time drew his pistol with his left
hand and fired one shot at Frazier,
cutting a button from the latter's
vest. Beech is reported to have been
a very desperate character, having
defied the officers on various : occas
ions, and also having forced the sher
iff on one occasion to release a prison
er. v - ' : .
So far no warrants have been
sworn out in this county for the ar
rest of the parties. If warrants are
not sworn" out before the next term
of Circuit Court, the grand jury will
then have to take cognizance of the
matter.- (":.'. ., j

How It Will Be Taken and What It
Will Cost, A jtj,
. The eleventh census of' the.tUpited
States will soon be taken, and because
of its importance its management
will throughout be watched with
universal interest: For the purpose
of making the census of 1890 the gov
ernment has appropriated $0,400,000
to cover expenses, not including the
cost of printing, engraving, binding,
etc., which items of themselves will
be an enormous expense. The law
provides that all the Supervisors
shall set their enumerators at work
on June 1, and that the work shall
be done by July 1, and the census
shall date from June 1, 1800.
ror me-thirty uays empioyeu in
taking the census, the Government
employes will live off the fat of the
and; The Supervisors, when the
census is completed will receive $125
each, and $1 for each 1,000 Inhabi-
ants in thickly settled districts, and
$M0 per 1,000 in sparsely settled dis
tricts. In no case, however, shall the
aggregate compensation of the Super
visors be less than $500 for the thirty
The enumerators are paid for their
work as follows : two cents for each
person enumerated; 15 cents for each
farm reported ; 20 cents for each es
tablishment of productive industry;
5 cents for each surviving soldier,
Bailor or marine or widow of soldier,
Bailor or marine.
The enumerators, appointed by the
Supervisors of Census to collect the
required date, will have a subdivi
sion covering a population not to ex
ceed 4,000 inhabitants. In this territo
ry the enumerators ' certainly have a
the work they can do if they under
take to do it well. Besides the mere
number of inhabitants, they secure a
correct list of deaths since the last
census; the number of manufacturing
and Industrial concerns in operation
or not In operation: the number of
farms and facts connected with agri
culture, etc. Ail this is of the ut
most importance, and the United
States Government so regards it.
Consequently, failure of a Census Su
pervisor or Enumerator to properly
discharge his duties is regarded as a
serious matter, and penalties are
prescribed for any malfeasance or
miscondnct In office.
Sec. 13, page 7G4 of the United
States Statutes at Large for 1889 pro
vides that any Supervisor or Enu
merator of Census who neglects his
duty shall be subject to a fine of $500;
nny such oftieer swearing falsely shall
he linfd t'-VM and imprisoned not to
Bradyville, Feb. 4. The Exec
utive Committee for Cannon County
met at Woodbury yesterday. Speech
es were made In favor of a primary
election by Mr. Houston, Capt. New
and others. After deliberating
awhile, the committee ordered a pri
mary election for the last Saturday in
May. It was ordered that nothing
but a strict Democrat be allowed to
vote in the primary. Considerable
dissatisfaction Is expressed at the
committee meddling with the mat
ter so soon, as the large Democratic
majority in the county precludes the
idea of the election of a Republican,
unless several Democrats run against
