New York, Oct. 8. The congres sional commlslon which has been In vestigating the carrying of second- class mail matter by the post offflce department has adjourned the hear ing to Washington, where representa tives of the Periodical Publishers' as sociation will be heard November 26. After the adjournment B. C. Madden, third assistant postmaster general, said: 1 "I believe that beyond question th postofflce department has established Its case, namely, that the present laws regulating second-class mall matter are out of date and practically nullified by present practices beyond the control or the department as now equipped, and that a real and effect ive enforcement would be Injurious to the publishing Interests. There are many publications now enjoying th privileges of the second-class rate in violation of the Intent and purpose of th statutes to th detriment of the postal revenues amounting to millions annually. From the hear ings, the correctness of this ia espe cially conceded by the publishers themselves. They seem to be sub stantially agreed that a reformation of the laws is Imperative.

SEQUEL TG RACE TROUBLES Usee September II roar Mea Hav era Kill aa Sevea Weaii ed la tk Series of Clash Wklc-fe Hav boearr. Argents, Ark., Oct 8. As sequel to the killing of John Lindsey and the wounding of bis eon, Policeman Milton Lindeey bere, Saturday night, presumably by Garrett Colum and Charles Colum, negroes, R. Blackburn a negro, was lynched Sunday night at 10 o'clock at the corner of Sixth and Main streets. The lynching ia the latest link In chain of 'clashes between whites and blacks which started oa Septem ber 16, when a white man named R. R, McDonald killed a negro musician named Wiley Shelby. Next day at the Inquest held at Hue Colum's under taking station, a difficulty arose In which Robert Colum was killed and Deputy Constable Ed. Lindsay and Garrett Colum severely wounded, the latter emerging from tbe hospital on ly Saturday. Policeman Milton Lind say, a brother of Ed Lindsay, was also hurt at that time. Saturday night Policeman Milton Lindsay and his father were walking past the Co lum store when thsy were fired upon from ambush. John Lindsay was killed on the spot. His son was se verely wounded, but managed to crawl out of range. When the police and cltizena attempted to enter the store they were fired upon. It is sup. posed Charles and Qerrett Colum did the shooting. Later In the) Bigot, thinking the Colum brothers were still locked in the rear room of the store, the place was dynamited but the ne groes had escaped under darkness In the early part of the trouble. They are still at large. At 1:60 o'clock Sun. day morning Will Harding, a painter, was halted, on the street by unknown Dartles. whether black or white he could not tell In the darkness. He was asked If he was black of white. On replying that he was white, he was told to go back and while leaving be was shot in the back. At 2'oclock James Mahoney, a contractor, and A. L. Beldlng, a reporter of tbe Little Rock Gasette, while going to see Har ding, were fired on from four different quarters with shotguns. Maloney was painfully shot In tbe band. Betting's clothes were peppered with blfdshot but none entered his body. That end ed developments for the nighu, v t At noon Sunday H. Blackburn, 87 years old, a negro who conducts a con fectionery store In Argenta waa ar rested on suspicion of being the man who fired on Mahoney and Beldlng. The town was quiet all day but as a precaution Mayor Faucette and Sher iff Kavanaugb awore In 16 extra j po licemen and tbe sheriff sent several extra deputies to assist tbe police. Tbe lynching was done in a quiet business-like way. Shortly before 10 o'clock tour masked men entered the police station from the rear and on covered the turnkey with a pis tol, while the other got bis keys, un locked Blackburn's cell and took him out tbe back way. Not a shot waa fired and there waa no loud talking so that Polloemen Pratt Sheriff Ka vanaugb and two deputies who were standing on the street a tow blocks away knew nothing of what waa go ing on until they heard several shots fired at Main and Sixth street. Run ning there, they found Blackburn al ready dead, bung to a telegraph pole, while the crowd around was apparent It merely onlooker Blackburn was strangling to death slowly when be was put out of bis misery by several bullet. w This Beautiful Set of Dishes FREE with DEFIANCE TEA and COFFEE No monev whatever reauired vou ret the set absolutely free for giving vour opinion of the finest tea and coffee in the world to a few friends and neighbors.

VanderbUt Jr., cup, completing tbe distance of 297.1 miles In 290 minutes, 10 2-6 seconds, or at the rate of more than a mile a minute. Vlnceunze Lancia, in a 120 horsepower Italian car, waa second in 293 minutes, 28 4-6 seconds. Antoinlne Duray, in a 120 horsepower French car, waa third In 293 minutes, 44 4-6 seconds. Albert Clement In a 100 horsepower French car, was fourth in 301 minutes, 69 4-5 seconds. CamiHo Jenatzy, In a 120 horsepower German car, waa fifth in 304 minutes, 33 seconds. Lancia actually finished the course about three minutes ahead of Wagner who, however, started six minute later than his rival and had that much margin at the finish. Only live cars finished tbe race but there were 14 of the 17 care that started running at the time the race was declared off, which was done as soon as Clement had won fourth place. It waa with the greatest difficulty that tbe crowds were kept back, from the course during tbe last lap. With out regard to personal safety they swarmed over th roads, giving way only when the faat flying racing machines were 100 yards away. While France carried away the pre mier honors of the race, Joseph Tracy of the American team, had th sat isfaction of registering the fastest lap made. On his fifth round Tracy drove the 29.7 miles in th remarkable time of 26 minutes, 21 seconds. Tracy suf fered severely from tire troubles In the first few rounds and this cost him dear. He was on his ninth lap when the race was called off.

Washington, Oct I. Mr. Terkes, commissioner of internal revenue, with the aproval of the secretary of the treasury, Sunday Issued the de partmental regulations controlling the making of denatured alcohol, the hand ling of the same and Its uses. These regulations follow and render effective a law enacted by congress at its last session, and which provides for the withdrawal from bond, tax free, of domestic alcohol when the same Is rendered unfit for beverage or liquid medicinal uses by tbe ad mixture of suitable denaturing mate rials and for tbe use of the denatured article in the arts and. Industries, and for fuel, light and power. The law becomes effective January 1, 1907. In discussing, the new regulations Sunday Mr. Terkes said: "The prime object to be attained by this type of legislation is to fur nish, for purely domestic uses, and al so for what might be called Industrial domestic purposes, heat, light and power, cheap alcohol, with the hope thereby that there will be a reduction of expenses In the departments. "This denatured alcohol will be competitor with illuminating oil, gas oline and coal "In determining on Ue denaturing agents to be used the cost of the same is of great moment for to render this new legislation of pactlcal use and benefit, It Is necessary for the dena tured product to pass into the hands of the consumer at as low a price as can be secured. "Under tbe regulations now Issued alcohol of 180 degree proof Is freed from tbe tax of 11.98 per wine gallon after being denatured by tbe use of either some general denaturing ma terial or some sepdflc . material adapted especially, to the uses of certain manufacturing interests. There will, therefore, be two classes of de natured alcohol; first that styled 'completely denatured,' which will pass Into general use for general con sumption, can be purchased at store without limiting regulations aa against the private consumer! and second 'specially denatured,' ta which tbe material demanded by tbe needs of manufacturing tntereeta will be re garded, and with limitation aa to tbe as of this class, confining It to the 'special maautaotarinc Industry tor which tt as pteparad. This 'specially deatured" alcohol will be kept aider strict surrdllaao and governmental supervision. "For th completely deatured ar ticle, to eraryon haadrad gallons of ethyl alcohol will be added tea gallons of wood alcohol and oae-half gallon of benstn. "Th denaturing proces win s ae eomplisbed on th distillery premise, wber th alcohol Is produced, la special bonded warehouses designated aad seed akwe for denaturing pur poses aad for tbe ttorag of denatur tog materlala. Thee buUdlnas and th opsratioa Itaelf win be under do 1 1 jggprnatl tnspsctioa apd eo. trol. "After the alcohol has been dena tured It is removed from th distil lery premises and then becomes a subject either of general distribution, If completely denatured, or for distil, button to the manufacturing establish ments whoa special denaturing for formulas have been approved by the government. "Denatured alcohol will supplant very largely the consumption of wood alcohol for both domestic and manu facturing purposes, as It will be cheaper. "While the price of tbe completely denatured product can not now be definitely stated, It Is believed It will not be more than 35 cents a gallon. The regulations number 152 and deal In the smallest detail with ev ery part of the process of d9naturiz Ing and consequently are extremely technical.
