Whltecappers In Lauderdale.
VThitecappers are reported to be
committing some depredatioiis in
the Maclin High Ground section of
Lauderdale county, situated in the
river districts, which is a matter of
much concern to some of the proper
ty owners. Last weelc, it is alleged,
that these law-breakers shot into a
negro cabin in that section and in
their promiscuous shooting killeld a
fine horse belonging to a negro on
the Foster plantation, besides excit
insr the occupants of the cabin into a
panic. It is further charged that
notices have been placed on many
negro houses urging that the occu
pants leave or suffer the conse
quences. A petition to the governor
asking that he offer a reward for
the capture and conviction of the
party or parties thus disturbing the
peace was circulated in Kipley last
week " and was numerously signed.
The burning of some timber for
building purposes is also charged
against the gang.
Tipton Above the Line.
J. W. Simonton, editor of the Cov
ington Leader, is in receipt of a let
ter from Senator Wm. B. Bate stat
ing that Tipton county is still above
the national quarantine line. This
will be very gratifying intelligence
to cattle raisers. The quarantine
line as first promulgated by the gov
ernment department of agriculture
placed the entire State of Tennessee
below the line. The line was after
ward modified, however, with the re
sult that a number of counties in
Tennessee in fact, all counties
above the line last year except White
and Carroll, will remain above the
quarantine line and have the privi
lege of shipping cattle for feeding
and other purposes all the year.
Chattanooga lias Hopes.
It is said to be practically assured
that Chattanooga will be in the
Southern Baseball League after all.
As the Montgomery franchise has
been divided between the two com
peting electric roads, it is impossible
for them to come to any agreement.
W. II. Ragland, owner of the new
railroad company, insists on having
all the games at its park, and Ra
phael Semmes, representing the old
company, will not agree to that.
They have been given time to reach
an agreement, and in case they do
not do so, the franchise will be given
back to Chattanooga.
Barbers Have a Bill.
Knoxville barbers have prepared a
bill seeking to establish a high stand
ard for barbers in the State of Ten
in Tennessee, shall pass an examina
barber, before working at his trade
in Tennesee, shall pass an examina
tion as to his fitness, and as to his
physical condition. This is to pro
tect the health of patrons of barber
shops. The draft of the bill has
been sent to Xashville, with the re
quest that it be introduced in and
passed by the legislature, now in ses
sion. All the barbers' unions in the
State are believed to favor such a

A telegram last week from Hon."
George E. Bowden, announcing the
vote in the senate on the Adams' bill,
set the people of Union' City wild as
soon as it became known, and bells
rang, whistles blew and people
yelled. Union City will have a
great rally to commemorate the pass
age of the bill. The saloons will
surely go from Union City.
Increasing Plant's Ontpnt.
The Standard Steel Company,
which assumed charge of the South
ern Car and Foundry Company
plant at Lenoir City, announces that
it will erect a new building 120x225,
and increase the plant's output from
eight to twelve cars per day.
After K. of P. Headquarters.
A joint meeting of the Chamber
of Commerce, Retail Merchants' As
sociation and Nashville Bank Asso
ciation was held last week in the in
terest of the movement to get the
headquarters of the Endowment
Rank, K. of P., located in that city.
In the board of control, which met
at Chicago last week, Nashville had
three votes, and Grand Rapids,
Mich., and Indianapolis two each.
A committee will go to Nashville to
see what that city will do.
Two Less in Lauderdale.
A serious shooting affray occurred
on the streets of Ripley last week' be
tween three negroes, and as a result
Wes "White, an old man about 65
years of age, is dead, and Ed. White,
his son, is dangerously, if not fatal
ly, wounded. The shooting was done
by Julius Curren, a young negro
about 21 years old. A number of
people were on the streets at the
time of the shooting, and it is a won
der that no one was hit.
Bauopass Retarns Home.
Jeff Bumpass, who it will be re
membered, killed. Tom Taylor on the
streets of Troy on Christmas eve
night of 1000, while acting as dep
uty marshal, and was later tried and
sentenced to the penitentiary by
Judge Swiggart for seven years, for
manslaughter, returned to his home
in Troy last week, having been par
doned by Gov. McMillin. It was,
indeed, a strong petition sent up for
his pardon, being signed by the en
tire jury that found him guilty and
all the county officials.
Vtg Land Deal.
It is announced that the Tennes
see Valley Iron and Railroad Com
pany, composed of Nashville and
Memphis capitalists, has sold 71,000
acres of iron and timber lands in
Wayne county, Tenn., to Pttsburg
capitalists for slightly less than
$250,000. It is said the purchasers
will build a railroad to the lands and
develop the property. S. II. Brooks
and John Overton are Memphis men
interested. It is said the property
contains the largest deposits of iron
ore in the western belt.
Compulsory Education Law.
The Public School Officers' Asso
ciation, in session last week at Nash
ville, adopted reports favoring prac
tical plans for the improvement of
the jural schools and a compulsory
education law of limited character.
It also indorsed the idea of limiting
the public school age to 18 'ears.
Gov. Frazier made a short address,
assuring the association of his co-operation.
Knoxville Bank Clearings.
The official figures show that
Knoxville made the largest propor
tionate increase in bank clearings of
any Southern city east of the Mis
sissippi river during the past year.
Only two cities exceeded it in the
South west of the Mississippi. These
were Houston, Tex., and Little Rock,
Ark. Knoxville's increase was 25.3
per cent.; Chattanooga, 21.6; Nash
ville, 15.7, and Memphis 1G.0.

Under the leadership of the negro

A new draw will be built at once

The new draw will be operated by a

The case of the State against Jim
WTiite for the killing of Jim Posey
in the former's saloon at Union City
Christmas night, was called in Cir
cuit Court of Obion county last
week, but the defendant's attorneys

ground that they were not ready for

Burglars In Cnlon City.
The Union City people arc suffer
ing from a series of burglaries that
have been carried on right under the

While hunting near Newport, last
week, W. C. McNabb shot himself
through the left foot by an accident

It was in a downtown theater recently,
and the climax of a tragedy was approach

garden, had been challenged to a duel with
the hero, says the Chicago Tribune.
"Fight me! Fight me!" and the villain,
too full for further utterance at the mo

empty on a table thirty feet away.

It was the villain's cue word, and he was
so intent upon seeing that none of its
laconic force was lost on the audience that
he must have been slow with the action.

The neck ot the bottle burst in a dozen
