FROM MONTGOMERY.
Denver Smith Has a Word to Say to Billy Ke
hoe—Murder Case Up for the Fourth
Time.
Montgomery, Dec. 4.—(Special.)—Mrs.
Mary Whitman Manton died at Provi
dence, R. I., on November 10. Mrs. Man
ton was the widow of Mr. Walter Man
ton, w'ho died recently.^ She was born in
this city nearly sixty years ago and
spent a good portion of her early life
here. Her father was Mr. George Whit
man, one of the early settlers of Mont
gomery, and her mother was a sister of
the late Capt. James Y. Brame. Her
brother, Mr. George W. Whitman, was
clerk of our circuit court about thirty
years ago. She was noted for her beauty
as a young lady, and was a great belle
in the best social circles of more than
one southern city and fashionable sum
mer watering place. Mr. Manton be
longed to a wealthy and prominent fam
ily in Providence, but lost his wealth
several years ago through business ad
versities. Latterly Mr. and Mrs. Manton
have lived in Washington city, where
Mr. Manton held, a responsible position
in the state department.
Denver Smith Replies.
Mr. Denver Smith called at the Journal
office today and said he was ready to
meet Billy Kehoe and James McClarney
in a glove contest nt McDonald’s Friday
night as suggested. Denver Smith said:
“1 will acct pt their challenge to box them
four rounds each,and if I don't best them
in the number of rounds named I wdll
give tin m the box receipts.” The admis
sion will be $1, 50 and 25 cents.
For the Fourth Time.
Douglas White is on trial in the city
court for the murder of Margaret Davis,
committed on Carter’s Hill road about
three years ago. On the first hearing of
his case the jury failed to agree, and on
the second trial there was a verdict of
guilty with a death sentence, which was
reversed on an appeal to the supreme
court. On the third trial the verdict was
set aside on a ground of error. The state
closed its case at noon and the hearing
of evidence for the defense was begun.
The defendant is represented by Capt.
John G. Winter, Mr. James S. Fuller
and Mr. Thomas Arrington. The state is
represented by Solicitor Lomax, assisted
by Mr. John J. Robinson.

A Big Land Beal.
Augusta, Ga.. Dec. 4.—The Chronicle
has received a special from Thomson,
(ia.. telling of the largest land deal ever
consummated in this section of Georgia,
The tract of land consists of some S000
acres lying in Columbia and McDuffie
counties, and situated about twenty
three miles from the city of Augusta.
It was sold for division among the heirs
of the late Dr. James S. Hamilton, and
was bought by Mr. John E. Smilh, a
prosperous farmer of that neighborhood,
who paid in cash $33,000 for the tract.
This ileal simply goes to show that there
tire farmers in the south who have cash
mnney on hand nnd who have faith in
the south’s present and future.
Mr. Smith will run the farm next year
(himself, placing on It some 200 plows in
addition to those already on the planta
tion. Less than one-half of the tract is
under cultivation at present.

NflBERS,
THE VIRGINIA ASSEMBLY
Receives a Message From Governor O'Ferrall
Suggesting Wise Legislation—The
State’s Finances.
Richmond, Va., Dec, 4.—The Virginia
assembly met at noon today. The offi
cers nominated in the caucus were elect
ed. Governor O'Ferrall in his annual
message declares that the financial con
dition of Virginia is excellent, and the
settlement of the state debt with the
creditors is so satisfactory it is probable
that no contention will be renewed on the
subject. lie expresses confidence that
steps will be taken by the legislature
to restore the University of Virginia,
which was partially burned in October.
He asks for generous appropriations
for pensioning Confederate veterans and
widows. He invokes the power of the leg
islature to stamp out lynching, and rec
ommends the subject tuVn act requiring
every county or city to pay into the
treasury of the state for the benefit of
the public free school fund the sum of
$200 for each 1000 of population, not ex
ceeding $10,000, for every lynching which
may' occur within its limits, and that
the expense of the militia called to pro
tect a prisoner from violence shall be
refunded to the state. The governor sug
gests that the penalty for rape be death
in every case, and that an indictment
for either offense shall have precedence
over .every case on the docket. Governor
O’Ferrall maintains that it is the duty
of Virginia to preserve personal liberty,
and that no man shall be compelled to
work unless it be for penal punishment.
If lie is not satisfied with ills wages he
has the right to stop work. On the othen
hand, no man should be compelled by
menace, threats or force to withdraw
from his work. When that is done he
is no longer a free man, and whosoever
thus deprives him of his right to labor
and to earn a livelihood robs him of that,
which is granted to every man in this
land of equal rights and freedom. He
declares that it is the duty of the state
to protect ail property, and defends his
course in using the militia for this pur
pose whenever it seemed necessary. He
demands the enactments to put an end to
horse race gambling in the state, and in-,
sists that pool selling in all its forms be
absolutely prohibited. He asks that prize
fighting be made a felony, and calls for
a special act to break up lawlessness in
that portion of the state opposite the Dis
trict of Columbia.

Pittsburg, Pa„ Dec. 4.—Postmaster
John O'Donnell resigne'd the chairman
ship of the democratic city committee

An Old Hule Unearthed.
Washington, Dec. 4.—If the populists
should enter an objection to the election
of the republican chairmen of commit
tees, and that party cannot get the nec
essary majority, it transpires that they
can placa a majority of their senators on
the committees anyhow. Some one in
the caucus today called attention to rule
24 of the senate. This rule has been in
force since 1829, and its pertinence to the
present situation was unnoticed until
this afternoon. What the report brings
may be easily apparent upon reading
the text of this rule, which Is as follows:
"In the appointment of standing com
mittees the senate, until otherwise or
dered, shall proceed by ballot to appoint
severally the chairman of each commit
tee, and then by one ballot the other
members necessary to complete the
same. A majority of the whole number
of votes given shall be necessary to the
choice of a chairman of a standing com
mittee, but a plurality of votes shall
elect the other members thereof. All
other committees shall be appointed by
ballot until otherwise ordered; a plural
ity of votes shall appoint."
Whatever of doubt may exist as to tlie
power of the republicans to command a
majority, there can be no question of the
fact that they have a plurality over the
democrats.
Atlanta’s Election.
Atlanta. Oa., Dec. 4.—In the city elec
tion held here today the vote was very
close. At midnight the count showed the
election of Woodward and Dlmmoek for
aldermen on the citizen's ticket. They
were opposed by a ticket supported by
tiie prohibitionists and the American
Protective association. The candidates
on Ihe citizen's ticket for the council
are leading so far as the count has gone,
but it Is very close, and some candidates
from both tickets may be elected.

THE SCHEME DO5*T WORK.
Only $500,000 of Gold Hits Been Deposited
With the Treasury.
Washington, Dec. 4.—Since Secretary
Carlisle's offer to pay the express charges
both ways for gold deposited in order to
build up the gold reserve, slightly over
$500,000 in gold lias been deposited in con
formity with the offer. Many millions
of dollars of gold have been offered by
national banks, but the conditions at
tached have been such that Secretary
Carlisle has declined to receive it. For
instance, $700,000 in gold was offered by
Louisville, Ky„ banks. The gold was
light weight, and the banks wanted it
accepted at its face, and not its bullion,
value. Many banks in western sub-treas
ury cities offered to deposit gold if they
were given a credit in New York. The
terms of the original offer expressly pre
clude this being done, as it was not the
Intention of the treasury to assume the
“expense of exchange for national banks.
The offer states that the gold must be
deposited In the nearest sub-treasury by
the depositor, and currency would be
forwarded in exchange, the treasury pay
ing express charges both ways. It did
not contemplate the deposit of gold in
one sub-treasury city and the delivery of
currency therefor in another sub-treas
ury city at the government's expense.
In the meantime withdrawals of gold
from the treasury will continue, and the
gold reserve is now slightly below $79,

no state of war exists in the south at the
present; therefore the government has
decided to give the boat her papers. It
iH stated that the vessel will proceed in
the direction of Acapulco and there meet
a schooner loaded with arms and ammu
nition. The tug will not attempt to lund
at LaLibertad or LaAjutad, but will

Indianapolis, Dee. 4.—A peculiar con

was caused bv the fire. The employes of
Schnull & Co., the chief losers, claim that
the flames brokp out after the collapse,
and the insurance companies, taking this
as their cue, may refuse to pay the pol
icies, which do not insure against darn
ages caused bv a collapse. As the total
loss Is fully JiiOO.OOO, a legal fight Is not

Pure Tr,o£.
Butterine is a much abused product.
4s a matter of fact it is pure, sweet,
wholesome, and infinitely preferable to
ordinary country butter. A special
correspondent of this paper recently
visited the factory owned and operated
by the Armour Packing Co., of Kansas
City, manufacturers of the widely ad
vertised Silver Churn Butterine. A
five story building is perfectly fitted
for the scientific preparation of this
food product. Everything is spotlessly
clean; all appliances are the latest and
most improved, and every precaution is
taken to secure the production of van
absolutely pure and wholesome food.
All processes are under the direction of
a foreign chemist who has made the
skillful combination of pure sweet fats
the study of his life.
Prof. Charles Chandler, of New York
City, says: “The product is palatable
and wholesome and I regard it as a
most valuable article of food.”
Prof. J. S. W. Arnold, Medical De
partment, University of New York,
says: “A blessing for the poor, and in
every way a perfectly pure, wholesome
and palatable article of food.”
