Senator Harper Accuses Capt. Teal Of

Now in (.,o 'ncee of my. position
in the ýmta i0,,r I desire to quote
the ex-.ct woids written me by

ITeal's s. mrnathies are more in
accord v\i h the man behind the
plow than my sympathies are.
Myv infr .nant wrote in his
tirst letter tO me that ('apt. Teal
is a we',cn in the hands of Cath
olics." As he (lid not state di=
rectl' the Captain was a Catho
lic. I :wrote to him (my inform

his reply he stated: "He is a
Catl:uiic and has quit the M:ason
ic ('orier. He attends Catholic
church all the time. I saw the last
rite and ,.a rament administer
ed to hi: by a Priest when they
thought he was going to die."
As the Catlt,:in had not paid his
Lodge dues for 1914 and 1915,
when the foregoing was written
to me I suppose my informant
knew what t-3 was talking about,
but since, th1', Cap;tain has paid
his Lodge dues which he paid 4th
inst. for 191.4 and 1915, as the
Secretary's books show.

If M'Ir. Teal had jumped upon
my infurmant,it would have sav=
ed me from having to write this,
but be states "Sen. Harper's
Methods", when it is a fact that
the first information to me was
not even asked for, but I think'
the position the Captain has
placed me in calls for this ex
planation, therefore I am giv

Steamer Elam Goes Down
Helpless in a high wind and
darkness, the river packet S. L.
Elam, of the Carter Packing Co.
carrying a number of passen
gers and a cargo of cotton,
stru k a snag in the Black river
late Sunday night and sank at
once in five feet of water. The
news was received here today.
The packet was near the shore
where it had been driven by the
wind, when it ran on the snag.
This probably saved the lives of
a number of the passengers, as
the stream is much deeper in the
middle. Going down in only five
feet of water, the main deck of
the boat was not covered,and the
lives of the passengers were,
therefore, not endangered.
This covers the report of the
sinking received by Capt. H. M.
Carter, owner of the packet, in
"I do not evmn kow where
the Elam went down," said the
captain, "nor at what time. I
only know that no lives were
The lam,doubless,was driven
