Three More Street Cars Narrowly Escape
Falling Off of the Ill-fated Viaduct
in Cleveland,
• _
Cleveland, O., Nov. 22.—At 2:30 o’clock
tills morning three night cars stopped
on the vftst side of the Superior street
viaduct draw while the draw was opened
to permit the passage of a vessel. There
were about thirty people on the cars.
The current was off, and the motorman
on a Woodland avenue car, which was
furthest from the draw, left his car with
out turning off his controller. The cur
rent came suddenly while the bridge was
swung open, and the motor started for
ward with a jump. It crashed into the
car in front of it and pushed that Into
the car nearest the draw. Men and wo
men screamed and jumped from the cars.
In spite of set brakes the cars were
pushed against the closed gates before
the current could be turned off the run
away. The gates were strong enough to
hold the cars or they would have gone
into the river 75 feet below. One woman,
Mrs. George Shuider, was painfully in
jured by jumping from the car.
Pursuing Her fiun-away Sister, Creates a
Scene at the Union Depot and Makes
It Hot For a Timid Man.
Quite an interesting scene was enacted
in the unidh depot yesterday morning.
It was the case of a timid man and an
irate woman.
The whole story, after being connected ,
through reliable information and police
records runs this way;
Some time ago, probably ten days or
three weeks, Mr. Glenn Havis visited At
lanta. There he met Miss Julia Left
wich, quite an agreeable young woman.
It seems the two left the home of the
young woman for the avowed purpose
of visiting one of the parlts.
But they never came back, it is said.
Instead a note was penned to the young
woman's family saying that the couple
had gone to a distant city, where they
would be made man and wife. They
came to Birmingham, however, stopped
at a hotel, registering separately, though
Havis’ statement shows that they occu

a short time thereafter, the girl went

but as she had left home voluntarily
the charge could not be sustained, she

Miss Rachel Leftwich requested a war

Judge Feagin's court. An officer went
to Louise Hamilton’s and arrested Miss
Julia Leftwich.
At first she stoutly refused to return
to Atlanta with her sister, but on pain
of prosecution for the charge of adultery,
she finally consented to go. When this

Relief Committee.
Boston, Nov. 22.—A meeting under the
auspices of tjie Armenian relief commit
tee of this city was held in Faneuil hall
this noon to protest against the recent
outrages agajjtst Arn^enians and to ex
cite sympathy for affd co-operation In
the work of relief for those in distress.
The floor and sides of the hall were well
filled with men, with a sprinkling of
women, when the meeting was opened.
Prominent upon the platform were Gov
ernor Greenhalge, Rev. Francis G. Pea
body of Cambridge. Hon. Robert Treat
Paine, Samuel B. Capen, Hagop Bigigian,
Rev. C. Hamlin and William Lloyd Gar
Edward C. Potter, chairman of the re
lief committee, called the convention to
order and expressed the intense feeling
of the audience upon a subject which so
touched them as lovers of liberty’; Ho
said the relief committee had remitted to
Constantinople during the last two
months over $3000 and has about $300
coming in this week. These contribu
tions were expended on the field under
the United States legation, in concert
with the missionaries.
He then presented the following list of
the officers of the meeting, who were
elected by acclamation: Chairman,
Robert Treat Paine; vice-presidents.Gov
ernor Greenhalge, Lieutenant-Governor
Wolcott, Charles Francis Adams, Gen.
Francis -A. Walker, Samuel Johnson,
James Jeffrey Roche, Charles R. Cod
man. William Lloyd Garrison, Winslow
Warren; secretary', Hagop Bigigian.
A series of resolutions were presented
by Samuel B. Capan, read and made the
text for a number of speeches, after
which they were unanimously adopted.
They are as follows:
Whereas, During the last year and half
the ancient feud between Moslem and
Christian has broken nut with terrific
viciousness in all parts of the Turkish
empire; and, I
Whereas, It is proved by overwhelm
ing evidence that the responsibility for
such atrocious deeds rests largely with
the sultan's government, whose author
ized agents have been foremost In plun
dering and murdering the defenseless
Armenians; and.
Whereas, This violence has now ex
tended to the persons and property of
American citizens resident In that land
and scrupulously obeying its law's, there
Resolved, That we express our unqualr
ified condemnation of the government
which for so long a time has been utterly
unable to maintain peace within Its bor
ders, but which has used its power open
ly to foment discord and give unbridled
license to its troops.
Resolved, That what such a govern
ment denounces as rebellion among its
subjects, while perhaps a hopeless thing
In itself, cannot be censured by any lover
of liberty who remembers the patience,
industry and peaceful disposition 0f the
American race, and who considers what
the Instincts of our common humanity
are, when every sacred right to which a
man is entitled, even under Turkish law,
has been ruthlessly violated.
Resolved, That we entend our deepest
sympathy to the Christian people of the
empire, who, having survived the mas
sacre, are now left at the beginning of
winter without shelter, food or clothing,
and who may be still in hourly expecta
tion of surrendering their lives to the
rapacious Kurd or the fanatical Turk.
Resolved, That in view of the extreme
destitution of the survivors we call upon
the people of New England to sustain the
appeal of the Armenian relief committee
by forwarding funds to Messrs. Brown
Bros. & Co. under the assurance that
whatever is entrusted to them,will be
duly acknowledged and prudently ex
Resolved. That we approve the project
of administrative reform submitted by
Great Britain to the powers, and only
regret that they have been so long In
their fruitless endeavors to come lo an
Resolved, That we commend the vig
orous efforts of our government to guard
American interests in Turkey, and we
appreciate greatly the firm attitude of
our minister at Constantinople, who has
evidently done all in his power to pro
tect his countrymen from the manifold
perils to which they are exposed.
The speakers were Robert T. Paine,
the Rev. Cyrus Hamlin, the veteran mis
sionary to Turkey and founder of Robert
college; Bishop Lawrence, Rev. F. E.
Clarke, Julia Ward Howe, Curtis Guild,
Jr.; William Lloyd Garrison, son of the
famous abolitionist.
Governor Greenhalge, Hagop Biggelan
and Charles Jeffrey Roche, editor of the
Boston Pilot, also spoke.
Letters were read from Ex-Governors
William E. Russell and John D. Long.
A, Shuman and Josiah Quincy.
Governor Greehalge said:
“We are here to consider a grave cri
sis. The great common sense which
runs through the declaration of inde
pendence cannot be expected of every
people. The Armenian cannot expect
that before he rushes into rebellion he
must have a reasonable hope of success.
But if he has seemed to do what, to our
cold, calculating intelligence, Is unwise,
remember that it Is only the cry of suf
fering humanity after all.
“We heard much about the words of ;
the father of our country about entang- •
ling alliances, but let us be careful that
we do not in a negative or supine way
make entangling alliances with crime and
murder, rapine and torture. (Great ap
plause). |
“The United States of America cannot
afford to sit a deaf mute in the council of
nations. (Applause). Entangling alli
ances—we may make them with the
forces of hell by remaining silent, Inert,
placid. (Applause). I have confidence.
Mr. Chairman, that the elective action
of the federal government will be wise
and prompt and effective. I hope I am
not a jingo. (Laughter and applause).
But T feel a thrill of satisfaction in say
ing that Minneapolis, with 400 blue Jack
ets and forty marines, is likely to be
steaming on her swift way to Constan
tinople to represent the conscience of
Christian American. (Great applause).

Savannah, Ga„ Nov. 22.—A special to
the Morning News from Warrenton, t»a..
says: At 12 o'clock today Florence Eng
lish and Amanda Cody paid the penalty
on the scaffold for the murder of Cicero
Cody, the husband of Amanda, last May.
The scene of the murder Is near Nor
wood, In this county. Amanda Cody and
her paramour. Florence English, killed
Cicero Cody in his own home one night
with a rock and a piece of wood, his
body being burled near the house, and
every day the guilty pair would visit the
tcmriorary grave and see if the corpse of
their victim still remained. His absence
from home created suspicion, and bis
body was found hidden under some
leaves and pine straw. The murderers
acknowledged their guilt and were hang
ed today. Roth went through the trap
together, their necks being broken by the
fall. Their bodies were cut down in
seventeen minutes and delivered to
friends for burial. The hanging took
place lu the jail, and was witnessed by
only a few people. Both declared as
usual that they were bound for the prom
ised land, A thousand negroes were In
town to witness th- hanging, but were
Dangerous Fire in a Cotton

Marriage of Two Prominent Couples Cele
brated—A Good Romance Spoiled by a
Young Woman's Non-appearance.
Selma, Nov. 22.—(Special.)—Just at
dark last night Dan Gardner struck a
match to light the gas in Maas &
Schwarz's cotton sample room, and the
head of the match broke off and blazing
fell into the cotton samples with which
the room Is filled. In the twinkling of an
eye the room was a mass of flames.
The alarm was immediately sent in,
and. when the fire department reached
the scene the flames had made their way
through the windows and were leaping
hign above the top of the front building.
For a few moments the entire block
seemed doomed to a fiery fate. The fire
men, however, soon got the fire under
control and it was extinguished before a
great deal of damage was done.
Mr. Schwarz says their loss is slight.
The stock of groceries of S. Maas below
was badly damaged by water.
Amende Honorable.
To make amends for their failure to
mention Selma in a pamphlet recently
issued the authorities of the Atlan' a and
West Point road have agreed to issue a
Selma supplement to contain a. write-up
of Selma, her resources and institutions,
the same to be illustrated. Secretary
McKee of the Commercial and Industrial
association will go over to Atlanta this
afternoon to consult with the authorities
of the road as to the amount of matter,
etc., needed and will return Monday and
begin preparations for same at once.
A Negro Shot.
Water Jones, a negro who works on
Rev. Byrd Moore's place, near Summer
field, was shot in the lower part of the
abdomen with a shotgun in the hands of
Mr. Archie Samples, superintendent of
the plantation, yesterday morning about
8 o’clock.
She Failed to Show Up.
Two SouthBide young people tried to
many in Selma Thursday. They both
live near Sardis, and had an appoint
ment to meet at the residence of Mr.
Henry Bowdon, in East Selma. The par
ties were Mr. Humphreys Laster and
Miss Mamie Huffman. Mr . Laster
showed up at Mr. Bowden's residence
expecting to met his would-be-bride, but
for some unaccountable reason she failed!
to show up. Both the parties are well
known, Mr. Laster being a substantial
young farmer of the Southside. It is
not known why the parents object to
the marriage, as both of the parties are
of age. After going to the residence of
Mr. Bowden and failing to find the young
ladv he left for Sardis with the intention!
of finding her. It is supposed that her
people caught on to the little racket and
frustrated their plans.
A Valuable Stamp.
A few days ago the little son of con
stable Ayeock found a stamp Issued from
the Uniontown postofflce during the war.
Little Goodwin Wilkins offered him 50
cents for it and the Stamp changed
hands. Goodwin wrote on to a stamp
collector and asked him what he would
give him for it. That individual asked
the owner what he would take for it and
Goodwin named the sum of $225. He was
just guessing in the dark, but utterly
to his astonishment a litter came accept
ing the offer and a few days later a
check came for the amount, after the
stamp collector had seen the stamp and
was convinced that it was genuine.
Goodwin Wilkins feels very proud of
his pick-up, but It would be hard to Im
agine the feelings of the little fellow
who sold it for 50 cents.
Clay-Fowlkes Nuptials.
Probably the largest number of the
elite of Selma ever gathered at one time
end in one place weere gathered at the
First Methodist church last night to wit
ness the nuptials of Maj. James Burns
Clay and Miss Marguerite Edna Fowlkes.
Many could not as much as gain admis
sion to the church.
Promptly at il o'clock the march to the
hymeneal altar commenced. The ush
ers, W. N. Compton, A. J. Goodwin., Dr.
Samuel Kirkpatrick, W. S. Woolsey, E.
C. Jones and E. Gillman, came first, fol
lowed by the attendants, J. T. Russell,
Jr and Miss Carolyn Haralson. C. M.
Howard and Miss Lueile Fowlkes, A. F.
Armstrong and Miss Page Jones, Col. L.
L. Herzberg and Miss Louise Melvin,
Capt. R. D. Walker and Miss Louise
Compton, L, O. Davidson and Miss Lucy
Burns. Then came Major Clay on the
arm of his best man, A. A. Hobdy. fol
lowed by the bride-elect on the arm of her
sister, the maid of honor, Miss Alieze
Fowlkes. Rev. A. J. Lamar performed
the wedding ceremony.
Immediately after the ceremony a re
ception was given at the palatial home
of the bride’s mother, Mrs. B. J. Fowlkes,
on Church street, which was attended by
the members of Selma's 400.
Major- and Mrs. Clay will leave this
morning for Washington, where they
will spend their honeymoon. Than Ma
jor Clay no more popular or deserving
young man ever won the heart and
hand of one of God's best gifts to man.
In social, business and military circles
he stands second to none.
Than Mrs. Clay no more admirable
woman ever vouchsafed her love and
life unto any man. She is a woman of
superior mental endowments, of queenly
igrace and beauty.

The Advertiser's coup d'etat which
came out after the late elections has
been sidetracked. Governor Oates Is out
In a speech declaring he will not be a
candidate for governor, and will not ac
cept the nomination. So the Advertiser
must nominate some other man. Here
tofore the people have had their candi
date and the Advertiser has had Its can
didate, and it has always triumphed in
the fight by forcing by diplomatic
skill its candidate on the people. But all
good things must have an end as well as
evil ones. The Advertiser has great rea
son to rejoice over its former triumphs.
It speaks volumes for the power and in
fluence of that great newspaper organ,
but It ought to be satisfied with Its form
er victories and follow the people In the
coming contest; otherwise it may lose its
prestige, which has been of so much val
ue to It in the past. It may press Its
claims a bit too far and fall very hard.
Indeed, the little fall it has Just experi
enced In pressing Governor Oates’ claims
to a point where most of its gold allies
left it alone ought to be a warning. The
Mobile Register, the Birmingham News,
the Anniston Hot Blast and the Hunts
ville Argus refused to go with the Ad
vertiser in pressing Governor Oates'
claims after Capt. 3. F. Johnston an
nounced his candidacy. But notwith
standing this, the Advertiser says the
gold standard men must have a candi
date—another demand for harmony, we
suppose, such as the Advertiser is accus
tomed to making. We doubt If this great
organ can find its man.
It does seem time for this peace-loving
organ of the party, so devoted to party
harmony, to let up and fall into line.
Why worry about finding another candi
date? Why not have the one who has
been so loyal and true to the cause, who
has shown his devotion to the democracy
of Alabama? Why force an unwilling
candidate into the race to oppose John
ston In order to get up dissension and
division, if success is what you want?
Mr. Rich or Mr. Clark® of Mobile, or H.
C. Tompkins of Montgomery, may go
into the race unless they think the water
is too deep for them, If the Advertiser
will call them out. But it would be a
great mistake to force an issue of this
kind on the people now. when the whole
country seems willing to give the nom
ination to Johnston by acclamation.—
