I havo never Uoiio anytliing or

A eEBtOUS BUOOTINO AFFRAY.
James F. Tumor Perbapa Mortally
Wounds Thomas II. llol'.on.
Kaiiivii.i.r, Tenn., May 10. This after
noon James F. Turner shot and mortally
wounded T. A. Ilolton, in tho olfieo of
Justice of thu Peiu-e A. It. S. P.row n. It
appears that tho llrni of which Ilolton was
a mcudier had secured the Usuing of an
ex.-cution upou merchandise in Turner's
storu. Turner replevied tho merchandise
UKin tho ground that execution had been
Isiiued for his individual debt and that ho
simply conducted the store as ngont, tho
firm being Turner dt Co. After doing this
ho brought suit for damages. Under this
new phase of the case tho trial was to
occur in Justice Prowu's olfieo this morn-
lug, but when the hour arrived ludgo
Quark, Tumor's lawyer, was not prvseut,
having been called to the Criminal
Court Ho hud been in the
olllce, however, a few tniuutcs pre
vious. At this juncture tho situation
was discussed, but rather amicably, and
Juitieo ltrown volunteered J'.o go liiinwll
to the courthouse and see Ju Igi (u.irles.
This he did, and relumed with thu infor
mation tlmt ho would con !i 11 110 tho c.ia
since Tumor's lawyer would be unable, on
account of other leg.d engagements, to lo
present. Turner sTurcd 1- T. lloliuan
sndrninn intolheolliee with the aniiouneo
ment that he had'accurcd njiother lawyer
snd was ready for trial, but was told by
J in: Ico Drown that tho case hud lccn con
tinued and that he was not at liberty to do
thia for Ih" reason that his lawyer was not
there at the hour when tho caso was
called. ,
"Yes ho was here!" replied Turner, bo
traving anger and excitement.
"lie was not here at 1(1 oYl.s-k," said
Ilolton very oiitively,andtliist-licted (mm
Turner the retort, "Von are a d d liar.''
When Turner used tho language quoted
Ilolton blushed a little, but with
rciuarkablo coolness. "You must lako
that back," at the ssmo time wulking
slowly towards the gale, w lilch was open.
in su instant Turner whiptod from his
losotn a revolver, and, like lightning,
nulled tho trigger ss tho hiurdo covered
lloltnu, who sank linip and apparently
life vs to tho Moor.
Turner was at once arrested. Ilolton Is
still alive, but cannot recover.

Yes, l'vo been much bettor slnco

wuon occasion demanded it. lo
what do 1 attribute my iucreiuod

1 m of tho opinion that 1 would
have had no troublo if I hud reinuiiied
North. Down South it was so hot that
outdoor work was well nigh unbearable,
and, besides, I gained llesh ill most imme
diately, lry ns I could 1 couklii t gel
much below 130 pounds, Tho climate,
must have had something to do with it.
in tho liock City handicap 1 rode, at i:iol

I wns forbidden by my phvaician to louvo

Tho stisk holders of the Memphis
Jockey Club nro aeriourly contemplating
thn conversion ol a iorlioii of the Held of
tlio park into a trolling track. Tho Idea
is a good one, and its accomplishment will
stimulate Ihe breeding of good bolting
lock in this locality. Thero Is mi reas.in
why Montgomery Park should not have
trolling meetings as well as running races.
Thero sre many lovers of lint rujiklcr
here who never go Ijs running nice and
yet woulJ (lis k to ssi a trotting match
'that promised fast Siort Moiitgouiery
Park iM'iug easy ol atiws and admirably
i'iiiipH'd lor the purse might easily bo
made an annual re ndc jevoiis lor tho best
trotting stock in America. Tho reasons
that tH'ralu ngainst a suivcwdul running
meeting In the fall tin not apply to trotters.
There nro no great trolling events in S.p
tellils r, Slid thero Would tat no danger of
scoiillict of tlates W illi ol her racing cen

and Thn A ri'kAi. trusts that tho Jockey

A ontAT many people In Memphis still
think thut Proctor Knott is better than
Spokane. For their information ths fol
towing, from su eyo witneas of tho race,
may bo interesting. "J'roclor Knott has
had so much work hammered into him of
lute thst Ihe odgo is worn olf and ho Is be-
a' ii it I ii 2 to go luck. Ibis alonocanex
pluln toiluy a defeat. If any eiplnn ilioii
can be ofl-tod. It was not tho heavy
track that beat til ui. as lis has won the
most of his races la slow going. U
wus not tho jockey, as there was uu
swerving in the stretch this time,
us iu tho Derby, lie was simply
outmatched. Spoknuo may not bo
nblo to Hi rt his heels in tho face of Proctor
Knott in the coming Chicago Derby, but
he ccrlninly is today shoes to plates tho
boiler of the two." Tlio samo writer
anys: "Tho Clark stako has proved
a terrible disappointment, not becau-o
SKkano won it, but because, bo
won in such hollow style. Ten thousand
IH'ople assembled to soo tho great Derby
battle fought over again, but they saw in
stead a stupidly tamo contest, iu which tlio
winner played with his Held ns if they
were u lot of llrighton Poach crabs. There,
is sumo excuse for Proctor Knott's defeat
of Thursday; thero is nono to bo ollcred
for that of today. Ko long ns ho was in the
lead ho run like n victor, secure in his
strength mid confident oi his powers, but
the moment ho wns collared iu tho stretch
hotpiit like a coward."
A i'iiominknt ccntlcmnn, who boards nt
