A CUTTING AFFRAY.
A serious cutting affray occur -rd
at Caruthersville Monday
night, in which Lee Flemming
and Albert' Dugger were serious
ly cut by a negro. From all re
ports, the assault of the negro
was entirely uncalledfor, and
that the temporary escape of the
negro who did the cutting is all
that averted a lynching.
The negro was working on
Toad Baird's place, where he
was captured late in the night
by Constable Watki ns, and to
avoid summary vengeance was
coniined in the Hayti city jail till
morning, when lie was transfer
ee! to the Kennett jail.
It is said that Flemming is in
a critical conidtion, but may re
cover. Dugger was not so
We have been unable to learn
just how the difficulty arose.
Later: It is said that Mr.
Flemming had been ill for some
time, and being weak and tired,
he and Dugger had stepped out
of the side door of the barber
shop to enter the saloon to get a
drink, when Dugger brushed
against the negro, at which the
negro took offense, and began
slashing the white men.
Feeling against the negro is
Webb, Chairman and Miss! high, and it is not too late yet for
Gladys Cladwell, Secretary, for
the manner in which the associ

Resolved: That a copy of these
resolutions be sent to the county
papers for publication.

him to bo summarly dealt with.
Tuesday Night: A crowd of
200 or ISOO was formed in Caruth
ersville, bent on lynching the
negro, and in some way obtained
charge of a engine and coach, and
between HO and 100 men went to
Kennett, passing through Hayti
a little after midnight. The news
had doubtless been sent to Ken
nett, and when the crowd arriv
ed there the negro had been
spirited away from the jail, and
they returned home.

The Cotton Exchange Bank is
a new bank for Pemiscot county,
organized at Steele last week,
with Judge J. S. Gossom, pres

president; S. E. Redden, 2nd.

are made up among the best

and it will be a strong bank. The
organization of an institution of
this kind, when that city already
has a bank, would indicate that
Steele is coining to the front.
