HASKELL WIIHDRUNS As Treasurer of National Demo cratic Convention. Strenuously Denies Hearst Charges, but Quits Position for the Good of the Party. Chicago, Sept. 25.- Gov. Chas. N. Haskell at midnight tonight resigned as treasurer of the Demo cratic National Committee. His resignation was announced by him self in three hours after his arriv al in Chicago from Guthrie, Okla., and after he had conferred with of ficials of the Democratic national headcpiarters. That his resignation is the direct result of the charges made against him by Win. R. Hearst and Presi dent Roosevelt, Mr. Haskell ad mitted. At the same time he did not, by his resignation, intend to admit that any of the charges were true. The Resignation. The resignation of Governor Haskell as forwarded to Chairman Mack tonight, reads: “Hon. Norman E. Mack, Chair man Democratic National Com mittee, New York. “My Dear Sir: In pursuance of information as to your date for re turn here, when I went home before I assumed I would find you here upon iny return today. I now learn that you will be detained in the East until Tuesday, and, as I must be home Monday, I leave tomorrow. “Since the President and his cabinet have joined forces with Mr. Hearst and three Wall Street brok ers to make a personal fight against me, notwithstanding the president in his answer to Mr. Bryan aban doned his charges about Ohio Standard Oil cases, yet by all the means at the command of the government and the millions of Hearst and Wall Street allies, they persist in vicious, unwarranted and untruthful attacks on me—person ally, I welcome their attacks—and shall meet it with all the vigor at my command. I shall treat them all as private citizens and subject to the penalties of the law which they merit. “In this i know t shall have1 the aid of my neighbors at home for all proper purposes; but my time must be free from other de mands here. Again my heart is full cf hope Oi the election of Bry an and Ktni. Honest govern ment and ri le by the people is at stake. Important beyond any bat tle in the last generation, is the pending contest. I would uot, ; for one moment, consider remain ing in any way connected with the i committee, therefore, 1 heteby tender my resignation as treasurer of the Democratic National Com mittee, that not the slightest con test of ray own could be used in any way by the president to cloud the sky and shield our opponents from discussing the real issues and laying bare the Republican dupli city to the people. “Sincerely yours, “C. N. Haskell.’’ LITTLE ROCK MAN SUICIDES Ben Corbet, 50 Years of Age, Ends Life on Account of Family Troubles. Little Rock, Sept. 26.—With family troubles which he said were too great for him to bear.

Moore is up against a proposition. l'he law says the wife of a Confederate pen sioner can draw the pension even after the death of the pensioner, with the presentation of the proper affidavits. Some time ago a pen sion was allowed to Jacob Schibb of Lafayette county. He drew the pension until his death and a war rant was issued for his wife, when Auditor Moore discovered that she was a uegress and held it up. l'he woman claims Schibb had negro blood in his veins, and she was legally married jto him, and if she makes this proof, Auditor Moore will have no recourse but to allow the claim of the woman and pay her the account owed her by the state. Telegraph Company Sued. Tom Davis and his mother, Mrs. Kli/.abeth Davis, have fded suit in the Faulkner circuit court for damages amounting to $1800 each against the Western Union Tele graph Co.

Greer, who Thursday afternoon stabbed with a paper knife and killed. J. W. Reneau, over a collection Greer was e;. deavoring to make, will have to remain in the county jail, bond be ing denied him. Greer asked for a preliminary hearing yesterday morning, and it was given him, but Judge Frank Martin, before whom it was held, refused to grant the petition for bond and held Greer to the grand jury on a charge of murder in the first de gree. Lewis Rhoton then called on Judge K. W. Winfield in the afternoon, prepared to make a fight for a writ of habeas corpus, but Judge Winfield, who presides over the civil branch of the circuit court, announced the case belonged in the criminal division, presided over by Judge R. J. Lea, and in the absence of that judge, he would not t ke a hand in the matter, es pecially as court opens next Mon day, when the grand jury will con vene, and the matter can be laid before Judge Lea then. Reneau, who was murdered by Greer, was a very popular railroad man, and it is understood that the railroad men of the city, who are all sworn enemies of Greer, are raising a large sum with the inten tion of securing the aid of Senator Jeff Davis in the prosecution. DEPOT FORCE IS OVERWORKED Almost overwhelmed with busi ness is the force at the local rail way station, and yet Station Agent J. W. James has little hope of se curing any relief, owing to the policy of retrenchment of expenses adopted by the Missouri Pacific system. Although the business of the present summer aiul fall is at least twenty per cent greater than the same period last year, both in passenger and in freight traffic, it being done by an office force of one less clerk than was furnished last year. District Agent Williams was here a few days ago to investigate the local situation, but Mr. Janies hardly expects any additional cler ical assistance in the near future. AT THE HOTELS.

The circulation is increasing al most more rapidly than we are able to take care ol it, and the adver tising patronage has been fully up to our expectations. Although the Daily is just completing its second week, it is already on a paying basis and if its business continues as good as it has been at the beginning, it will be a perma nent fixture in Conway. Iii the enhancement of real es tate values the State Normal school has already repaid to the people of Conway the cost of its location here, and the real benefits of the institution are yet to come. Six hundred thousand dollars is a low estimate of the actual value of real estate in Conway. Ten per cent is a low estimate of the in crease in the value of Conway real estate during the past twelve months—twenty-five per cent is nearer the mark. The cost of se curing the Normal was, in round numbers, $60,000. Figure it out for yourself. To Strengthen King Bridge. County Judge J.

Something You Should Know Your watch contains 160 separate pieces requiring 1,750 distinct operations in the production. The bal ance wheel runs a mile an hour, 24 miles a day. One wheel revolves 4,730,450 times a year. The balance wheel makes 157,680,000 vibrations ever 12 months, and keeps it up for years. Is it not a faithful servant? Are you a good master? 100 Years A good watch will mark the time perhaps for a century, if intelligently treated. It may not last five years if neglected. Once a year is none too often for a watch to be cleaned and oiled. To disregard this is to in vite disappointment and add greater expense. J. J.
