A RUNNING DUEL
Between Policeman Disheroon and a Negro
Wanted for Robbery. ,
Oliver Jenkins, colored, alias Dick Tur
vine, was arrested yesterday by Officers
Disheroon and Brlzendlne. and the
charges of highway robbery and assault
with Intent to kill docketed against him.
Jenkins was pointed out to Officer
Disheroon by a negro from Blossburg,
who said that Jenkins took $2.50 from
Jilin yesterday at the point of a revolver.
Said the informant to Officer Disheroon:
“I didn’t mind the loss of the money so
.much as I did the fact that Jenkins com
pelled me to kiss his pistol after be rob
bed me." It is said Jenkins also robbed
several other negroes.
When Officer Disheroon approached
Jenkins the latter ran up Avenue II to
ward Twenty-first street. He refused to
halt and as the officer could not gain on
him he drew his revolver and fired at the
fugitive. Jenkins, without checking his
pace, answered with two shots from a
44 Colts revolver.
One of the bullets struck a negro by
stander in the shoe, but did not hit his
foot. Officer Disheroon returned the shot
and kept up the chase, which developed
into a running duel. The negro turned
into an alley and near a vacant lot
stopped and deliberately aimed his pistol
at the brave officers. Both fired simul
taneously, but again the bullets flew wide
of their living targets. The negro then
ran under a house and, with his pistol
pointed at the officer, declared he would
kill him if he came after him, but Dish
eroon fell on his face and began to crawl
tow'ards the negro JusTas Officer Brlzen
dlne, who put in a timely appearance,
covered Jenkins from another side of the
house. Jenkins threw his pistol to Offi
cer Disheroon and was carried to the city
prison.

The Republhcan and Populite Contestants Take
Their Course—Colonel Reese’s
Claim.
Montgomery, Nov. 26.—(Special.)—Col.
Warren S. Reeae leaves tonight for
Washington to prosecute his contest for
Senator John T. Morgan’^ seat. He said
tonight that his contest was based on
Morgan's being elected by a democratic
majority of the Alabama general assem
bly which had itself been fraudulently
elected and organized; that of the honest
ly elected members he has four majority
over Morgan. He says he had petitions
signed bV 30,000 white men In Alabama
praying congress for a republican form
of government here.
Colonel Reese's friends, figure that,
counting Utah's two, the senate will
stand; Republicans. 45; democrats, 37;
populists, S; which would make it a tie.
Should the democrats and populists com
bine, and should Morgan be sidetracked,
the republicans would have a majority
in the organization of the senate.
Goodwyn and Robinson, populists, and
W. F. and T. H. Aldrich,republicans,who
are contesting the Heats of Congressmen
Cobbs, Harrison, Robbins and Under
wood, respectively, on the grounds of
electron frauds, will leave for Washing

An Irate Father Appears in Time to Prevent His
Daughter’s Marriage,
Montgomery. Nov. 26.—(Special,)—An
attempted elopment terminated rather
sensationally near here this afternoon.
Mr. A. Meriweather, an electric car mo
torman, and the pretty young daughter
of Col. Pete Harrison, a farmer, deter
mined to marry, and, engaging the ser
vices of a notary, drove into the country
to consummate their plans of union. Just
as the party halted to tie the nuptial
knot the irate father appeared on the
scene with a gun and opened fire. The
groom fled for safety, the father filing
at him several times as he sped along.
The father captured his daughter and
returned home with her.

women often feel
the effect of too
much gayety—
balls, theatTes, and
teas in rapid
succession find
them worn out, or
“run-down” by

from nervousness,
sleeplessness and
irregularities. The
smile and good
spirits take flight. It is time to accept
the help offered ill Doctor Pierce's Fa
vorite Prescription. It’s a medicine which
was discovered and used by a prominent
physician for many years in all cases of
“ female complaint” and the nervous dis
orders which 'arise from it The “Pre
scription ” is a powerful uterine tonic and
nervine, especially adapted to woman’s
delicate wants for it regulates and promotes
all the natural functions, builds up, invig
orates and cures.
Many women suffer from nervous pros
tration, or exhaustion, owing to congestion
or to disorder of the special functions. The
waste products should be quickly got rid
of, the local source of irritation relieved
and the system invigorated with the 11 Pre

only put the nerves to sleep, but get a

The Specialist who treats thousands of patients has more experience than the

The Indisputable fact that Dr. Holloway is the only physician in the South con
trolling sufficient practice In private troubles, such as Syphilis, Gonorrhoea, Gleet.
Stricture, Bad Blood, Skin and Bladder Diseases, Ulcers, Womb Troubles, etc., to
devote his whole time to their cure is sufficient evidence of his great experience
and successful treatment.
Special attention Is given to the treatment of unfortunates suffering from
early imprudence, errors of youth, loss of vitality, loss of manhood, sexual de

GET WELL and enjoy life as you Bhould. Many men and youths are today
occupying subordinate positions in life who. if they were able to exercise their
brain power to its full and natural capacity, would instead be leaders.
