1 lit lil There and Trouble .May
Cai'o Uulletin: As is generally
known in this city and county, Un
people of Thclics precinct have for
many years refused to allow any i:
grocs to ifside in their neighborhood.
They have hesitated at nothing to en
force this regulation, ivsortinir to
physical violence sometimes when
threats- did not serve the purpose. Hut
it seems now they will have to aban
don this policy or come in contact
with the law.
The .1. li. Murray Lumber Co.. one
of the big lumber concerns of the
north which has been operating in
this city and vicinity for s,,me lime,
has lately been towing its lumiier to
Thebes lor transfer to C. ..V K. I. cars
for transportation north. The com
pany owns the towboal Condor ami a
fleet of barges, and has timber land
enough in Southeast Missouri and
Arkansas to keep them busy for fifteen
years. Mr. Chas. Murray is here to
direct the company 's business. Sev
eral days ago he sent some harys
there and had them unloaded by a
gang of negroes taken from here.
Monday lie took fourteen negroes
up there to load the lumber into cars,
about live barge loads of lmnbcrin
all, which would have kept the gang
busy several days, but last even ins;
the whole gang came back to Cairo
and reported that they had been or
dered away under threats of death,
and that lh,- town marshal was anions
the men who had given the order.
Mr. Murray reported the matter to
the C. .V K. I. officials and they at
once sent a sjiecial train with detec
tives to Thebes, with instructions to
ferret out the guilty partiss. The rail
road company will leave nothing un
done to force the citizens of Thebes to
change their attitude on the negro
.question, because it is a matter of
business with the company. Mr. Mur
ray says he would not feel so bad
about it if he could get white men at
Thebes or elsewhere to do the work.
He says there are a lot of white men
idle in Thebes, but they are evidently
loafers, for they refused to work.
Unless he can be protected in taking
his negro labor np there he will have
to abandon Thebes as a shipping
Gcbacg says, in speaking of the
little amu-'ement at Wiiliamsvilie last
Tuesday: "But Hen, if we are allow
ed to make a prediction, will one day
be heard from even yet in some public
place at iefferson City, but probably
not in the Capital building."' The
spirit of prophecy must be upon
Gebang, for there is a great deal more
in nis prediction than appears on the
surface. When Fiory is Governor it
is iiot at all improbable lhat Ben will
be found at the oitiee of the executive
pleading for Gebang. He can rely
upon what little influence Ben may
have, but he should keep out of
trouble as long as possible.
Dentil of Well Known Citizen.
The Marble Hill I'ress relates the
following concerning a man who was
well known at the Cape:
"Last Saturday evening John W.
Crader with three others st.irted home
about live o'clock, iu a farm wagon.
When a short distance from town the
team became frightened at a threshing
outfit and became unmanageable. Mr.
Crader jumiHjd from the wagon and
fell on his head killing him almost
instantly. He was a good citizen and
his sudden death is a shock to the
whole community and distressing to
his family and friends. He was about
53 years old and leaves a family of
six children and many relatives and
friends, t whom our sympathies are
