admitted that he sent the telegrams at
tributed to him, but said they only "an

clared that the men need not strike on his
telegrams, and generally left it in doubt
as to how he earned his salary.
The Lawyers Take the C'axe.
A. I... Smith, for the company, liegnn the
argument. He said the suit was not nn
attack on union labor. Arthur was prac
tically at the head of the strike and it was
a mere subterfuge that the men acted in
dividually in refusing to handle Ann Ar
bor freight. Arthur did know of the
court's order aud was practically in con
tempt. If the judge refused to renew the
injunction interstate traffic would be
stopped by the boycott, which would lie
immediately in force and do incalculable
damage. Frank Hurd, after proposing to

SERVICES TO THE CONFEDERACY.
A Brilliant Record of Deeds of Daring
General Smith was graduated at the
United States Military academy in 1S4
and received the rank of brevet second
lieutenant and at onceentered the Mexican
war. At the close of the war with Mexico
he went to West Point as professor of
mathematics, receiving a captain's commis
sion, and went to the frontier in 1S55. In
1861 he was promated to - be major and
when Florida seceded from the L'nion was
appointed lieutenant colonel of cavalry in
in the Confederate army. His record dur
ing the civil war was a brilliant one, his
exploits at Bull Run and in the campaigns
in Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas
and on the sea coast being some of the
most famous deeds of daring in the
history of that great struggle.
Bis Most Efficient Work.
General Smith's most efficient service
was in managing the blockade-rnnning
department in the southwestern states. He
forwarded much cotton to Europe and re
ceived in return from France and Eng
land munitions of war and materials for
clothing. He established furnaces and
lactones and when the war closed his de
partment was more than self-supporting.
After hostilities ceased General Smith
entered commercial life and from 1800 to
J 808 he Iwas president of the Atlantic and
Pacific Telegraph company. From 1870 to
1875 he was chancellor of the University of
Nashville, Tenn., and since that time had
been professor of mathematics in the Uni
versity of the South at Sewanee.
Leaves Eleven Living Children.
General Smith married Miss Cassie Sel
den, of Virginia, in lbC3. His wife and
eleven children survive him. His eldest
son, F. K. Smith, Jr., has been for some
years a civil engineer in Mexico. Funeral
services will be held Friday.

EDISON EXPRESSES AN OPINION.
The Great Inventor Makes Few Casual
New Yoek, March 29 Dispatches from
Washington intimate that the decision of
the supreme court in the Huber patent
case practically destroys Ellison's quadru
plex patent. Edison said Monday night
that he believed the American patents on
the quadruplex had already expired. He
added: "The man who framed the law
making American patents expire when the
prior foreign patents expire whs a Hima
layan jackass. I have never made any
money on any patents except in England.
It is supposed that the patent laws were
made for the benefit of inventors, but there
is not one inventor in a thousand that has
any interest, in the final decision of the
Troubles of the Inventors.
"I was perfectly indifferent to the deci
sion in the incandescent lamp case. If it
were the practice of the courts to let the
inventor have the delay and not the pirates
he would get some recompense for his
time-and labor. If an inventor happens to
put something on the market that is of
real worth and the pirate sees it the first
thing the inventor knows he has a power
ful rival, which threatens to engulf him
at the start."

Fort Smith. Ark., March 29. A battle
was fought yesterday at Antlers, I. T., be
tween Indian factions. One hundred and
fifty men were on each side Ten men
killed and fifteen wounded is the result.
One side represented the Choctaw govern
ment and is termed the National militia,
the other is composed of the followers of
R. M. Locke, who resists arrest.fearing that
he will be killed instead of being given a
trial by law. United States officers arrest
ed nineteen o' the leaders of the militia at
7 p. m. and took them to Paris. Tex All
is quiet at present. In the Choctaw elect

which was riddled with bullets. Kverr

men were badly wounded, fifteen militia
men wounded and five reported dead.
Fnll Account cf the Trouble.
The following account of the trouble is
sent by an American Press correspondent
at Paris, Tex.: A sharp encounter took
place at Anilors at 2 o'clock yesterday aft
ernoon and for thirty minutes a volley of
leaden hail fell about the town. At that
hour the militia suddenly came from the
woods and charged down upon the resi
dence of Dick Locke, the leader of the Na
tional party, and opened fire on it. Ixtcke
saw them coming and hurriedly got into
his house when the fusillade log.m. Ixeke
with five men, returned the fire from the
upper story. Fully 1,5:10 shots were fired,
every window was shot ont, and the sides
of the house were perforated like a sieve.
Stray bullets flew far and wide and terror
and consternation prevailed throughout
the little town.
Lee Lays Down I'ncle Sam's Law.
The attack was a surprise to every one.
At daylight yesterday morning the militia
under command of Captain Key Durant
went to Locke's house and insisted on
searching it. He was not at home, but in
the mountains about three miles from
town. After remaining in town a while
they returned to camp. Word was con
veyed to Ixjcke and in company with his
son and seven others he went home to see
what had been done. He reached there
about 1 o'clock in the morning. United
States Commissioner Kirkpatrick Lee had
a consultation with Durant, who is a
United States deputy marshal, and told
him that the United States would hold re
sponsible the party that started a fight.
It transpired at this conference that Dur
ant had papers for only one man. Willis
Jones, under indictment for murder.

OPENING OF THE BATTLE.
Attack ou Locke's House by the Militia
No one expected an outbreak then, and
the American Press correspondent went to
Anilers with Duiant's party, where Locke
also came and stated what the law was
which statement was later verified by the
county judge. It was in effect that any
of his friends who were wanted would sur
render to the sheriff on warrants, the law
requiring warrants before arrests Could
be made. In short he proposedto submit
to the sheriff, but claimed that the militia
had no rght to interfere. The party then
started for the militia camp, where they
were met by a force of militia headed by
Judge Duke, who refused to hear any prop
osition and started at once for Locke's
house. Locke asked them to allow Lis
wife and children and the women and
children in ihe Methodist parsonage to get
out of the way.
Brave Conduct of Mrs. Locke.
The sharp report of a Winchester ended
the parley and a furious battle was on.
Mrs. Locke went out of her house into the
street and denounced Duke and his follow
ers as cowardly, brutal murderers aud
crossed to the parsonage to assure Mrs.
Halland and her husband that Mr. Locke
would not fire upon their house, which the
attacking party had taken refuge behind.
Meanwhile Captain Thompson had come
and begged the militia to stop firing. After
a parley the militia withdrew and went
into camp a mile a -ay. Mrs. Locke then
went to town and sent physicians to her
bouse. Marshal Lee telegraphed to Mar
shal Dickerson at Paris to send a strong
force, as tuey had warrants lor the militia.
Casualties in the Fight.
The results of the battle are these: Luke
Hill, shot through the shoulder, danger
ous; John Worcester and Silem Homer,
shot in the bead, seriously wounded. Of
the militia Solomon Baptiste, shot
through the side and mortally wounded,
and three others have flesh wounds.
Locke's little daughter had her hair burned
by a bullet as she was going up stairs wi' h
her mother's baby in her arms. A ball
passed through Locke's hat and his son's
arm was grazed. It is said his children
were shot at as they endeavored to get
from their residence to a cabin in the yard.
Arrest of the Militiamen.
Late in the afternoon John Gibbous and
Judge Durant went to the militia camp
and arrested Judge Duke and others.
Many of the militiamen refused to partici
pate in the attack. They said they did not
understand it to be their duty to war
against women and children. Great un
easiness prevails at Antlers. Fears are
entertained that the town will be burned.
Looking- for More Trouble.
It is expected that Locke and the entire
force will break camp and leturn to Ant
lers. If so, they may attack the militia.
This opinion is strongly entertained by
many. Should they do so it will more ser
iously complicate matters. Their attack
on Locke's house is a vindication of his
suspicion that they intended to kill him
from the start.
