term of the Lnurens County criminal
court last year on a charge of assault
and battery with Intent to kill. Sat

tion before Judge Watts asking for a
new trial in tho case, basing their
claim for a new hearing on the:
grounds of after-discovered evidence,
this alleged evidence being submitted
in tho form of affidavits from certain
witnesses who testified at the trial of
Mllam a year ago. The motion for a
new trial was refused by Judge Watts,
and notice of intention to appeal the
case to the higher court again was
given Ly the attorneys for Mllam.

A GREAT SUCCESS
Eminent Violinist, Assisted by Con
trulto and Planlste Gave Highly En
tcrtaJnlng Concert Last Friday.
Viewed from every standpoint, the
musical entertainment last Friday ev
ening given by Skovgaard Concjgrt
Party was a highly successful one.
Never before have the people of Lau
renB had the pleasure or attending a
concert so repleto with brilliancy of
musical talent or one so pleasing to
the aesthetic emotions. The three
members of the party, Herr Skov
gaard, violinist, Miss Ikert. contralto
and Miss McClung, planlste, proved
themselves artists of the first rank,
of whom criticism should come only
from the world's musical leaden*. Tak
en Individually or collectively the ar
tists seemed at their best and their
best seemed to be the height of musi
Herr Skovgaard showed himself a
master of the violin, master of the
tccbuique. as well as of all the soul
fulness that can be brought from a
glorious Stradivarius. He certainly
? won the heart of every listener. Miss.
Ikert, With bur deep, rich contralto,
that displayed, range, beauty and per
fect enunciation received after every
number enthusiastic applaii.se. which
subsided only when she reappeared
to give an encore. Miss McClung, the
charming planlste, gave several selec
tions that brought forth the wildest
enthusiasm from the nudience. Her
accompaniments were truly perfect
and added all that could be desired to
the evening's pleasure.
The program was well balanced and
the listener was thrilled one moment
with the beauty and strength of selec
tions from the classics and the next
moment with the chnrm and simplici
ty of selections familiar to every
American such as "Sewanee River,"
"Annie Laurie," and "Home Sweet
I Ionic." Nothing, in fact could have
been added that would have made the
evening more enjoyable.
It is well to add that the attention
given by the audience was exceedingly
eoud and this from a house that was
crowded almost to overflowing, was
in itself proof that the genius of the
artists was felt and appreciated.
The members of the party each re
ceived large bouquets of Ho weis from
admirers in the audience. A very hap
py incident of the evening was the
presentation to Herr Skovgaard of a
large basket of violets decorated in
the national colors of the artist's na
tive land. Denmark. This was pre
sented by the members of the eighth
grade of the city schools.

and jumped. The fireman followed
him. The two engines collided, but

been reversed, began to run back

until, in the middle of the freight yard
and about a hundred yards from the
pOSSi tiger depot, it ran into a caboose
and a Clinchfleld coal car. The ca
boose was completely demolished, lit

scoped, but not completely destroyed.
The tender of the engine was smashed
Into an almost unrecognizable mass.
Luckily no one was hurt nor was
the track damaged.
Inside of two hours the track was
cleared and trains were running ov
