According to a statement made by
Hollingsworth to Sheriff McMillan

blood between him and the man ho
killed for some time. This morning
he and Krank Lequire wore passing
the home of Calvert when tho latter
came out into tho road with a shot
gun and ordered Lequire to get out
of the buggy. Hollingsworth states
that Calvert jumped behind a large
tree as he made this command. La
ter the gun was leveled on the de
fendant, but Hollingsworth was too
quick and fired first. The full load
of shot entered the man's face and
chest and it was soon discovered
that his chances for recovery were
Hollingsworth stated that he had
his shotgun leaning on the foot of
his buggy and he grabbed it to pro

Calvert was regarded as one of
the most progressive farmers of his

Republicans to Oust Roosevelt Men.

One or two heads have already

It ls persistently reported that Mrs.
Helen Longstreet, postmistress at
Gainesville, ls among those who will
be removed from office very shortly
by tho Taft administration.
There ls something more behind
tho situation in Georgia than tho
mero general movement to supplant
Dull Moosers by loyal Taft support
ers. Although such a movement ls
taking place In many States, there
aro peculiar reasons for bitterness
between the regular Republicans and
the third termers in Georgia. The
State delegation which went to the
Chicago Convention was badly split,
and the charges of venality fired at
many of tho negro members of the
delegation were given wide and
moro sensational notoriety than
they would otherwise have had be
cause of the Internal strife within
tho delegation. Friendships wore
shattered and enemies were made
among the Georgians at that conven
tion, both among tho whites and
among tho negroes, so bitter that
they will affect Republican politics
In Georgia for years to como.
How long tho Taft appointees will

POSTMASTERS' CIVIL SERVICE.
Taft Sends 2.00O Appointments that
Democrat? Plan to Block.
Washington, Dec. 4.-President
Taft sent moro than 2,000 recess ap
pointments to the Senate to-day, and
immediately indications of a move
ment among some of the Democratic
Senators to prevent their confirma
tion became evident. Senator Gore,
it was said, would have the active
support of several colleagues in head
ing the movement.
The campaign was directed espe
cially against nominations which, lt
was claimed, have been postponed
from time to time, thus bringing the
new terms close to the beginning of
the Democratic administration.
Democratic Senators claimed that
tho President already had deprived
tho Democrats of the privilege of ap
pointing 50,000 postmasters by plac
ing them within the civil service law
by a single order.
Most of tho Democratic Senators
expressed themselves as favorable
to "a discriminating obstruction,"
but several progressive Senators
whose assistance had been counted
on did not appear willing to co-ope
