W. P. WALTON.
Hon. S. S. Cox, the Rlntesman nml humorist,
died in New York Tuesday night,
after n short illness of peretonitis. He
was born in Ohio in lSlM, where he wns
given a flue education. First ndopting
the pio ession of law, lie afterwards became
an editor and it was while he edited
the Ohio Statesman that he wrote
the gorgeous descriptionof a sunset, that
procured for him the sobriquet of "Su
Bet" Cox. His first public service was 8
seen tary of legation at Peru in 18 W. He
w nt to New York to live in 18tS, and
was elected to Congress, si nee which he
has served almost continuously, the exception
being during his enenmbency
as minister to Turkey. This latter was
too dry for his disposition, so he resigned
and returning to New York was again
elected to Congress and was a member
at the time of his death. He waa a very
effective and humorous speaker and as a
writer and lecturer ho arose to proud
distinction. He is the author of numer
ons book, .several of whieh rank very
high in the world of letters. He was a
Htaunch democrat, a devoted friend to
the South and will be sadly missed by
both. It is said of him that but for
his humor, that was liable to burst forth
on any occasion, ho would have gained a
higher reputation as a statesman, which
he was in the strongest sense.

The Mountain Monitor is the nnmo of
a paper just started at Pikeville by S.
X. Swinnne and it is a highly creditable
publication. It is soundly democratic
too, and is destined to do a good work
for that caute and for tho restoration of
law and order. The issue before us contains
accounts of the trials of the Hat-11
dd crowd for the murder of the
McCoys. Four were sent to the penitentiary
for life and KUison Mounts, for
tho minder of Alpharia McCoy, was
sentenced to be hanged Dee. !!d. Alex
Messer was the only one to accept his
sentence for life and he was taken direct
to tho penitentiary, while Val Hatfield,
Dock and Plyant Mayhorn were
lodged in jail at Lexington to await the
result of an appeal. In sentencing
Mounts to death Judge Hice said: "It is
not only a great crime for which you
stand convicted, but tho circumstances
under which it was committed display n
spirit of llendishness nud barbarjty here
tofore unknown in the history of this
country since the days when the savages
roamed the trackless wilderness and
wrought their fiendish crimes. I can
hold out to von no hone for clemency. I
feel that if the governor knows the circumstances
under whieh tho crime was
committed, it has so hardened his heart
against all appeals for mercy that it
would be useless to pray for even a respite.
I would advise you to turn your
attention in your pleadings to a higher
court than any of this world. If you
have been coerced as you say, He knows
it and will doubtless extend to you mercy.
Appeal to Him. He alone can aid
you in your present extremity."
