Wm.: Franklin, Ells wuriu, hans. .- ' Fresh pork at Baker's. - 1 From McPherson, "Kan., Daily Re publican, Sept. 20, 1905. The following is taiten from the Parson Sun and is of especial interest to McPherson county people: - "The jury in the case. of the Farmers'- Alliance' Insurance company against A. B. Williams, the local rep resentative of the Connecticut" Insur ance company, reached a verdict early this morning after nearly fifty hoars of secret deliberation. Mr.- Williams is guilty as charged in the' informa tion. He was arrested and tried on eight counts and the jury brought in a verdict for conviction on each alle gation. The case was one of the hardest fought of any ever-tried in this county. Mr. Williams will prob ably appeal the case and ask for an other trial. "Thecime of criminal libel, such as Mr. Williams has lust been con victed of, is punishable by payments of $1,000 tine and a term of one year in the county jail. - Should a new trial result or an appeal result in the deci sion reached today being sustained. Mr. Williams would have an immense fine to pay as well as a long term in prison. However, Mr. Williams Is still hopeful for a reversal of matters in another trial or an appeal His counsel.have taken the steps prece dent to asking for a new trial. It'ls probable that no' jury in any criminal action ever tried in this county was in the jury room for such i a long period as the twelve men .who tried this case. The final arguments of the attorneys ended Wednesday forenoon, after which the case -was submitted to the jury. Masterly ar guments were ' made on both sides and the case was watched with keen interest by hundreds. Mr. Williams printed and exten sively circulated hundreds of circulars branding the Faimers'-Alliance Insur ance company as false to its patrons. The company resented the action as being criminal libel and the suit and conviction resulted.'' ? There are about nine hundred policy holders in Labette county. It was but natural that they should be disturbed by these charges. If they were true it was time to drop the company, if they were false Mr. Williams- should be held - to account. A- complaint was made, charging Mr. Williams with criminal libel. lie was arrested and on the eleventh day of September, 1905, he was brought to trial in the distriet court of Labette county, Kas. The burden of proof lay upon the members of the company. The pre- sumtionof law was that Mr. Will iams was innocent until he was pro ven guilty. So it fell upon the Farm ers' Alliance insurance Company to prove that Mr. Williams' circular was false, that there own business meth ods were correct, a nd that Mr. Will iams' attack was malicious. This they had to do at the home of the prisoner and among his friends. Officers of the company were presen t and their books were brought Into court, every oppor tunity to cross-examine, but so utter ly did Mr. Williams fail to discover proof of fraud or mismanagement that the jury returned a verdict of guilty on everyone - of the eight counts. That is twelve men, his own neighbors, have said that Mr. Will- flams' circular was false in to to, and criminally malicious as well. . For years the Mutuals of Kansas and especially the Farmers' Allianoe have been the objects of a disreputa ble and unscrupulous warfare. De famatory circulars, unsigned, undated, without imprint, postmarked some times in the state, sometimes else where, and occasionally distributed on the streets, have been scattered throughout among the people by-the tens of thousands. - " This company has not been boast ful but as a servant of the public it has felt it a duty to prevent false im From J. H. Deatrich. . St. Thomas, Pa., October 12. Ed ltor Western Kansas World. At a surprise party given in honor of Cap tain Jacob H. Deatricb, at his old homo in Saint Thomas, Pa., his cous- n, (J. M. Jjeatncii, presented mm with a long knife or daggerwhich has a history. The address is as follows: "It is in recognition of your distin guished service in the war of the re bellion, when as a captain of the 20th Pa. Cavalry, your record for fidelity, valor and honor was so meritorious that your comrades, wiien you was mustered out of service at Cloud's Mills, Va., after having rode with Sheridan to the end of the war; pre sented you with a sword as a testimo nial of their regards. Sow, after 32 years, a long interval of time and dis tance, mingled with the vicissitudes of life, you have returned to the scenes once familiar, to recall the in cidents with old friends of your earlier years, where with many others in 1861, you left the plow stand in the furrow to respond to the first call for 75.000 troops to go forth as you and they did in the strength of your energy and young manhood at your country's call to duty, to do battle for the Union, and in defense of the flag. That was a time when families and homes felt the test of severed ties and shed the tears ol sacrifice. Your friends of this village which bears a pious name, .who have survived, .with ""you that struggle upon this happy occasion, do present you with this bloody dagger, as a souvenir of their regards. The history of this homely, home-made dagger is that it was handed down from a southern sea pirate and was left by a confederate soldier with the speaker. Your cousin, C. M. Deat- rich, when said soldier was a member of Jones' brigade of ' E well's corps, when said brigade marched through Saint Thomas to the tune of Dixies land, on their way to the bloody bat tle of Gettysburg which occurred but 32 miles distant from this place, July 1. 2 and 3, 1863. This dagger com pares well with "that one used in the days of Theodoric the Great or when tire warrior blood of the Dietrich of Germany was stirred away back in the Fatherland, or when Dei t rich of Alsace, the 13th in" lineal descent of the Amilie was the leader of the Os tragothsin the year 454, or that one used by Deatrieh of Berae, who in 927, during the war of the middle ages, was the leader of a noble band of stalwart knights, who led a crusade against Jerusalem, the holy city, in an effort to recapture, it from the SaraCenor heathen hosts of which family traced back in history you are a worthy descendant. The next spots on this dagger are said to have ' been the result of blood stains of victims who fell by a strong arm's stroke. I present you with this homely keep sake upon this memorial occasion of your visit as a testimonial ol our re gards, and when you come to make up your garland ot memory's flowers you may use this dagger to sever the thorns from the stems which gave life to the garland, remembering that our friendship which is more than a mere simple bud, you will place by the side of the sweet for-get-me-not sweet as the music of the old Saint Thomas band. The captain "made fitting response. '' 222 Sooth PwriaSL, ; Chicaoo, Iu, Oct. 7, 1902. Eight nr"-tK ago I was to III that! waa compelled to lie or sit down nearly all the time.
