POLICE PICKINGS.
Items Noted Among: the Lawbreakers—Sev
eral Important Arrests.
Joe Smith, colored, was arrested by Of
ficer Goggan last night on the charge of
attempting to pass a counterfeit silver
half dollar on Pete Poppy George, the
fruit dealer, on the corner of Third ave
nue and Twentieth street.
Charles Fay and Joe Stevens were tak
en In custody last night by Captain Don
elson and Officer Culpeper on the
charge of doing business without license.
They had several boxes of shoes when
arrested.
Mr. Newberry stumbled over a negro in
the rear of his barber shop last night,
and as his manner was suspicious Officer
Goggan was called In, and on searching
the negro found a concealed pistol on
him. He was placed in the lock-up, and
the charge of carrying concealed weap
ons was placed before his name. The
prisoner gave his name as George
Carver.
City Warden Morgan of Chattanooga
arrived last night, and will carry back
with him Will Malone, colored, who was
arrested here a few days ago on a tele
gram from Chattanooga stating that
Morgan was wanted for a murder com
mitted In that city several months ago.
W. M. Doyle was arrested last night
and imprisoned on the charge of larceny
of a watch from T. S. Sanford in this city
some fifteen years ago.
Charlie Lies, alias Charlie Washington,
alias Charlie Mclntlre, who Is serving out
a sentence for carrying concealed weap
ons, will be arraigned at the conclusion
of his term on the charge of burglary
and grand larceny.
CHARGES OP FRAUD.
The Mississippi Legislature Will Be Asked,
to Investigate the Charges.
Jackson, Miss., Dec. 13.—A sensational
squabble is likely to be had before the
legislature, which meets in January, and
all on account of a state law whloh re
quires the seventy-five counties to con
tract every five years for books to be
used by the public schools. These con
tracts were awarded a few weeks since,
one big book concern, the American, cap
turing the lion's share. Rival concerns
now claim, however, that many of the
contracts were secured through fraud
and bribery, and will endeavor to have
them set aside by the legislature. Each
county has a board of school book con
tractors, and some of these, it is charged,
were paid large sums of money for their
votes. An investigating committee will
be asked for.
JOHNSTON’S CANDIDACY,
What the State Press Has to Say of the Gen
tleman From Jefferson.
A strong pull, a steady pull and a pul?
altogether tor Johnston for governor.-^
Cleburne New Era.
An Unholy Warfare.
Says the Huntsville Argus:
‘‘Never In the history of the state has
such an unfair, unjust and unrelenting
warfare been waged against any man
within his party as has been kept up
without ceasing by the Montgomery Ad
vertiser against that peer of any In his
party, Capt. Joseph F. Johnston. Its
venomous, blind and persistent assaults
would be cruel If they were not hurtless.
The democrats of Alabama will submit
to no such Injustice. Within the last few
days It has become manifest that no
means will be deemed unworthy of use
which will tend to effect the cherished
end—the defeat of Johnston. But, mark
you, the people b.elleve'all the more, from
these desperate tokens, that he is the
man of all others who should be made
governor of Alabama."
Can Heartily Support Either.
The Jasper Eagle, a gold standard pa
per, says:
“The ‘sound money wing’ of the dem
ocratic. party In Alabama, If the press
is to be taken as an Indication, are going
to run Congressman It. H. Clarke of Mo
bile for the nomination for governor.
Clarke is an able man and the party will
have good timber If it gets either John
ston or the Mobilian. We can heartily
support either.”
The Party Will_Not Force.
Says the Hamilton News-Press.
"Is it not lamentable that two great
dailies like the Mobile Register and the
Montgomery Advertiser shou.d show so
much temper because they can’t force
the democratic party of Alabama to dis
card Capt. Joseph F. Johnston as a can
didate for the nomination for governor?
Captain Johnston has been an openly de
clared candidate for the nomination for
over a month, and If he was not accept
able to the great majority of the party
Is It not reasonable to suppose that there
would not have been opposition devel
oped ere this, particularly when these
two great dailies, In the language of a
contemporary, have been scraping the
state with a fine tooth comb to find some
candidate to oppose Captain Johnston?
This is the best evidence to our mind
that Captain Johnston is the first choice
of a. great majority of the democratic
party for governor, and this fact will
be fully developed when the state con
vention assembles, despite the powerful
Influence (?) of the before mentioned
dallies. Hurrah for Cant. Joseph F?
Johnston, who is unmistakahlv and oveflJ
whelmlngly the choice of the democratic
party of Alabama for governor. s
NATIONAL COMMITTEE -

Will Meet in Washington January 16 to Name

Next Democratic Convention.
- T-•n"**'
Philadelphia, T>ec. 13.—Chairman W. F.
Harrlty has Issued a call for a-<meetlng
of the democratic national committee,
to be held at the Arlington hotel, Wash*
Ington. D. C., on Thursday, January 1#

iness also. The resolution offered by

■t il uoviiiijBi JXfjAKij Y WIPED OUT.
Two Merchants Are Under Arrest and Are
Heavily Guarded.
Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 13.—The town
of Titusville, in Brevard county, was
nearly wiped out by fire about 1 o’clock
this morning. The fire originated in
Hamburg’s store, in the business centre
of the town, and before it was gotten un
der control thirty-one buildings were de
stroyed. All efforts to control the fire
were in vain until dynamite was used to
blow up buildings. During the progress
of the fire a Mr. O’Rrien entered a burn
ing building to secure $18, which he had
left in his room. He got the money, but
was so badly burned that he died in a
short while. The total loss is estimated
at $100,000, partially insured.
The opinion is general that the fire was
Incendiary, and Messrs. Hambcrg and
Garner, merchants, have been arrested
on suspicion and are now in jail The
fire originated in Hamberg’s store, and
the circumstantial evidence against the
men is said to be strong. Many threats
have been made against the men today
and lynching was feared tonight. To
prevent this many special officers were
sworn in, and the jail is now thoroughly
guarded.
CAPT. HARRY JACKSON DEAD.
He Succumbed to an Operation for Appen
dicitis Performed Thursday.
Atlanta, Ga., Dec. 13.—A death, almost
tragic from its suddenness, was that to
day of Capt. Harry Jackson, who is one
of the best-known barristers in the south
and a social leader. On Monday night he
was in fine health, and attended a recep
tion tendered Mrs. Potter Palmer. Tues
day he felt a severe pain in the left side.
On Wednesday he drove to the office of
his physician and advised with him.
Thursday night an operation for appen
dicitis was performed, and today at nodjf
he breathed his last. He is a son pf
Gen. Henry R. Jackson, who was once
minister to Austria. Uaptaln Jackson
received his early training In Vienna aryl
London, and entered the Confederate*
army at the ego of 16. He has a son at
tending Harvard university.
