Watson v. Williamson, Admr.
W. H. Watson vs. J. T. William
son, admr., et al.; Maurv; equity.
Gillespie, the intestate of William
son, and complainant Watson owned
two lots adjoining, and trontlng the
same street in Columbia. Com
plainant alleged in his bill that in
the life time of Gillespie, complain
ant and Gillespie entered into an
oral contract whereby complainant
agreed to erect what was to be con
sidered as a party wall. The wall
was to be built entirely on the land
of complainant, and Gillespie, whose
land was not touched by the wall,
agreed to pay complainant $25 for
theone foot of complaint's lot, which
Gillespie's half of the wall would
rest on, and also agreed to pay com
plainant $261, which was one-half of
the cost of erecting the wall. The
bill was filed against the adminis
trator to recover these sums. A
demurrer was filed to the bill, on the
ground that the contract was con
cerning the sale of land, and was
therefore voidable under the statute
of frauds because neither the con
tract nor any memorandum or note
thereof had been reduced to writing.
The Chancellor sustained the de
murrer and dismissed the bill. The
Supreme Court is of opinion that the
Chancellor was clearly right in this
and the case was accordingly af

cuss great social, economic and
politico-moral questions, and will

Editor Herald: This beautiful
one act play, by Laurence Alma
Tadema, and which first appeared
in Harper's Magazine for August.
1890, will be presented next Friday
night, Feb. 12, at the Institute, by
some of our best amateur talent, for
the benefit of Tennessee's room at
Mt. Vernon. As a literary treat, it
will be a rare one. The fact that it
has been selected bv so competent a
literateur as Mrs. E. S. Fowler, and
will be enacted under her super
vision, is enough in itself to justify
literary Columbia in expecting
something good. Special permission
has been obtained from the author
in her far away St. Petersburg home
to enact the play here, and Messrs.
Harper Bros, have also kindly
waived their copyright for the oc
casion. The object of this entertainment
is purely patriotic and one which
should be dear to the hearts of all
rennesseans. As is well known, the
Mt. Vernon Ladies' Association, has
rescured the home of Washington
from decay and given it to the
Union, as it was when the great
American died, as a perpetual
heritage to liberty loving genera
tions. This society is governed by a
Regent from the country at large,
and a Vice-Regent from each State
in the Union. We are proud to
claim Tennessee's Vice-Regent as a
talented product of our own Maury
County, and through her gentle in
fluence, Tennessee has done her full
share In honoring the home of the
first great American. In looking
over the last report of the Regent, I
notice that the nine registered
Jersies contributed by Maury Coun
ty breeders are one of the chief at
tractions and most profitable in
vestments at the Mecca on the
Potomac. But more Is required of
us and we must not fail to respond
and lay our tribute, though but a
le: on the shrine of immortality;
for, as Tennessee has never failed
when liberty itself was at stake, she
cannot now fail to honor the memory
And so, on Friday night, Feb. 12,
this little play will be enacted, for
the benefit of Tennessee's room at
Mt. Vernon, followed by a short
vocal concert, the two combining to
make a literary and musical treat
rarely witnessed in more pretentious
cities. As the play was laid in the
fifteenth century, the costumes will
be new and interesting, and all of It
a histrionic lesson of an age gone by.
Harper Bros, thought so much or
the play that they had it illustrated
by Abbey, a member of the Royal
Academy of Artists, and perhaps the
best in the world in technique
and life-like delineations, and the
costumes will be patterned closely
from these beautiful illustrations.
The songs have been set to music by
Miss Crawford, the talented musical
instructress at the Institute, making
a beautiful effect with the charming
softness and sweetness of the play
itself. And the play? It is beauti
ful and one that has burst up pure
and sweet and refreshing through
tha sod of a century of dramatic neg
lect to remind us that art is not
dead. At times it sounds as if the
great English master of drama was
touching the chords himself, and
then it melts away in a sweetness
which is truly Keats, until, like
Keats to his nightingale, as I finish
it I am tempted to say:
"Thou was't not born for death, immor
As hungry generations tread thee
Tin voice I hear this passing night was
Iu ancient days by imperor and
Perhaps the self same song that found a
Through the sad heart of Ruth, when

Galveston, Texas, Feb. 1. In
regard to the.statement sent out last
night by the Associated Press giving
an interview with Lyman Gage, Mr.
Bryan said to-day:
"Mr. Gage is a daisy. Greenbacks
should, he says, be retired and sil
ver purchased under the Sherman
act should be sold and Treasury
notes redeemed and cancelled. Then
we ought to have bank notes that
are redeemable only in gold. And
he also says the Government should
not act as a warehouse for either

about Mr. Gage being a daisy. I
wonder if he wouldn't like to in

would have to obtain his permis

Three Desperate Convict Em-ape From

Nashville, Feb. 2. Three des

one of the most daring and success
ful escapes in the history of the old
Tne men were "Butch" Bradley,
alias ueorge uaiaweii, George
Brown and Richard Lawrence. All
were white men and rank among the
most noted criminals in the United
Of the three Bradley, perhaps, is
the most notorious. He was born in
Pennsylvania, and ia now 28 years of
age. His career of crime began in
Chicago, when he was very young.
He blossomed out as a crook and
his photograph adorns every rogues'
gallery iu the Uuited States. In
1894 he robbed a bawdy house In
Louisville. Several pals accom
panied him. They lied to Memphis
and there burglarized the residence
of S. Montgomery.
While dividing the spoils at a
hotel in that city, Bradley and a pal
named Johnny Rogers quarreled
over the division of a diamond neck
lace stolen in Louisville, which re
sulted in Bradley killing Rogers.
He was arrested, convicted of the
crime and sentenced to life in the
penitentiary. He was sent up on
June 19, 1894. Since his incarcera
tion here he has attempted to escape
a number of times, but without success.
George Brown is hardly less
notorious. In May, 1896, he was
convicted in Shelby county of lar-

been here several months when he
escaped from the penitentiary by
stealing the clerk's clothing and
walking out with an armful of
bridles. He was recaptured in St.
Louis and returned to the pen.
Richard Lawrence was serving
out a twenty-eisrht-year sentence
when he escaped last night. In 1892
he was sent up from Shelby county
for twenty-eight years for burglary
and assault to commit murder.
When arrested in this State he had
just made his escape from the Jack
son, Mich., penitentiary, where he
was serving a twenty-year sentence
for a similar offense. Lawrence is
