Commissioner of Agriculture
Payne, reports the average yield of
cotton in Tennessee 61 per cent.,
corn 46 per cent. The winter
wheat crop already sown, he says,

Andrews and Blewett Lee general
attorneys, Benjamin F. Ayer and

That part of the message, in
which the President discusses the
tariff and trusts, questions of vital
interest to the people, plainly shows
that he has surrendered to the man

lief the masses can hope for from
these oppressions is through the

000 bales as the cotton production

Somers Safety Landed.
Sheriff Saxnraons returned Sun
day morning from St. Paul, Minn.,
with his prisoner, Henry Somers,
colored. The readers cf the Bul
letin are familiar with tje case.
In November, 1900, Wm. Lew
ark was killed in Bolivar. Several
negroes were arrested, tried and re
leased. The grand jury upon what
it deemed sufficient evidence found
a true bill against Somers, who in
the meantime had left the country.
Nothing further was heard of him
until several weeks ago, when the
Sheriff received a letter from the
police department of St. Paul asking
if Somers was wanted here. The
' reply was in the affirmative and the
Sheriff proceeded at once to St.
Paul. Upon his arrival lie found
that the negroes of the city had in
terested themselves in Somers' be
half and in order to prevent his re
turn bad employed a lawyer to take
the matter to the courts. After
tedious trials and an appeal to the
Supreme Court, the decision was
finally in favor of honoring the req
uisition of the Governor of Tennes
see. Somers is now in the county
jail awaiting his trial, which will
take place at the January terra of
Circuit Court. After having to
contend with so many obstacles,
Sheriff Samraons deserves credit for
successfully landinqr-hV-f prisoner.
He is high in his praise of the po
lice of St. Paul.., ?ho rendered hira
eveiy assistance possible.
We copy the following from the
St. PauLl5aily News:
rioou!$nca was imminent at me
central station last uight when
l&criffAV. B. Sammons, of Bolivar,
TenHTwho came here after Henry
Somers, an alleged negro murderer,
advanced angrily toward Louis
Liverpool, a local negro, with his
baud gripping a forty-four calibre
revolver. The angry Southerner
declared be would fill Liverpool full
of holes. Determination marked
every feature, and his hand grasp
ing the big revolver came slowly
from h'i3 pocket. Attorney F. L.
McGhee, who was present, sprang
between the men and Sheriff Sam
mons was finally quieted. The
trouble arose over Liverpool break
ing into a conversation between
Attorney McGhee and Sheriff Sam
mons. Liverpool declared there
would be a barbecue if Somers was
taken back to Tennessee. "You
black do, don't you insult a white
man," declared the Southern sheriff,
starting for Liverpool. "You in
sulted rae when I was here before
and I'll fix yoa right if you say an
other word." Sheriff Sammons
was white as a sheet and 6trode to
ward Liverpool as though he meant !
what he said, when Attorney Mc-j
Ghee got between them. '
