I WASHINGTON, Nov. j.—Two de cisions have been handed down recent ly affecting Jim Crow laws on the rail roads. One, in a Kentucky court, holds that the Jim Crow law in that state does not apply to Pullman cars The other, handed down by the United States Supreme Court, upholds the Jim Crow laws of Mississippi. According to the Kentucky decision, a Pullman car is not a railroad coach. An indictment had been returned against inc t unman v.o. mr uaving fre quently permitted the races to ride in the same tar between Paducah and Louisville. As Construed by Judge Heed, of the Circuit Court, the sepa rate coach act applies only to the regu lar coaches of a railroad train. The demurrer of the Pullman Co. was sus tained. It is thought that attorneys for the commonwealth will take an ap peal from this ruling. Supreme Court O. K.’s Jim Crow A few <lays later the United States Supreme Court put its 0. K. bn state Jim Crow laws with reference to a Mississippi case. The case was the first of it- nature to come before Chief Justice Taft. According to his ruling, tl^e I'nited States wa-. responsible under the Transportation Act of V)K) for dam-1 ages arising under its failure to enforce j state laws ami rules regulating trans portation within their borders. A decision to this effect awarded $400 damage^ against the Director! (ieneral of Railroads because three men were permitted to ride in a rail road ear with white passengers from* Pascagoula t6 Piloxi, Miss. Judge Taft refused to review the case when it was hrejught before him.

After prowling through the house with a flashlight, lie threw the glare on the sleeping man and his wife.

Closing the door, StofTell then committed the alleged assault, accord ing to the charge, while the husband] remained behind. The question the police are trying to' solve is, what was the lmshami doing j ill the time his wife was being attacked. LYNCHBURG MAYOR TO SPEAK BEFORE HISTORICAL ASSN. LYNCHBURG, Va., .

This unification, if effected, according to Bishop Henderson of Michigan would make the combined church the largest Protestant denom ination . in the country. The chief difficulty heretofore has been to sat isfy both the northern and southern churches on the status of the Negro Methodists in the unified church. Sejvcral plans have been suggested,; among them a number of country-! wide conferences of equal status, one for each of six or seven racial stocks. Again one general conference com posed of several regional conferences having the white Methodists in their respective conferences according to the region of their membership, while the colored Methodists have one regional cortTerenc** for themselves, or more if and when the numbers justify. According to Dr. A. C Miller, a southern leader, writing in 1919 in the Boston /ion’s Herald “In all the plans yet considered, there has been logical contusion over the race question and the Regional Conference.” The Southern Methodists object to sitting in conference on absolutely equal terms with Negroes in spite of the fact that any member of any Metho dist Episcopal Church )>y the Metho dist constitution is a member of the whale Methodist Episcopal Church. This is at least one of the knotty prob lems which must be met in the p’aii to be formulated if unification is to become a reality. LIBRARY LENDS BOOKS BY MAIL BOSTON', Mass..

About two weeks ago C J. Walker, of Minneapolis, arrived in Chicago and registered at the Idlcwild Hotel. He made no attempt to hide the fact that he was heir to an'estate of $05,000, which he had inherited from his mother who had just died. lit was cn route to California and the Pacific Const, intending probably to buy a villa there and spend the rest of his Ufcdn ease. He became a favorite m the hotel lobby, however, and \v,i- 'persuaded to raiicrl his roast trio \!«— I illinn (/crtrune IVrry, of New Jersey, fell I violently in love with the young licit ami gave him her hand in marriage The ceremony was solemnized by tin Kcv. Hr. McCracken. Gets Many Phone Calls In the meantime,the telephone-; at the Idlewihl were burned tip with telephone calls for Mi Walker. A Mr. Kelly at the J.a Salle Hotel was handling all his business transactions for him. Also a Mr. Dunbar of the hirst National Bank was acting as Mr. Kelly's agent. As time went on, it was revealed that Walker wa worth more than $65,000. IJnrcvealed assets in his mother's estate kept pil ing up until his fortune mounted to over $150,000. Since he had decided to remain in the city. Walker decided lie needed a ear, so he called at tile Rolls-Royce Agency and purchased a $7,500 yoadster model. “Mr. K. i 1 y" and Mr. Dunbar vouched for the purchase by telephone. In the meantime Walker effected several small loans around the hotel, pending the settlement of his estate. He also ran up a good-sized bill in the hotel dining-room. Carey B. Lewis, proprietor of the hotel, did not think of pressing an heir to a $150, 000 estate for a small tiling like room i' 111, ii ai.su wciu ity mi imam. Night Mart Gets Wise Hut the- night watchman noticed that Walker’s calls always came when he was away, and that as soon as Walker left the hotel, the now Mrs. Walker would get a photic tall from "Mr. Dunbar” of the hirst National Hank. He became suspicious. So he followed Walker Monday morning when he left the Hotel, and found that the young Rufus Wallingford entered a booth in a nearby drug tore. To hi- amazement, he found that Walker, Kelly and Dunbar were one and the same. • Discovery led to .bis arrest, and it was learned that there was no $150, 000 lorTtne, or any hint of such a thing. In Harrison Street court Monday morning ‘ "Wa llingford" Walker was sent to the Bridewbll in default of a $50 fine. GEORGIAlOURT UPSETS BIASED VERDICT ATLANTA, GA. Nov. 2.—The Su preme Court of tin State of Georgia, in directing a second new trial tor Charlie Harris, has added another chapter to one of the most remarkable murder cases in the history of this state. Harris stand- convicted of the mur der of Georg' ierce, a wealthy white farmer, we’ town throughout the state Harris w a tenant on the Pierce place and h. servii es were sought by Pierce, at odd times, to do plowing. A dispute arose over whether Harrs would plow one or two mules An altercation resulted in which the two men chased each other around one of the mules and Pierce was killed. Harris admitted the killing, hut claimed self-defense. In May, 1919, he was indicted anti, on trial, was con victed and sentenced to be hanged. Motion lor a new trial was overruled .uni me case was ippeaieu. urn ap pellate court sustained the trial court. An extraordinary motion for new trial was filed, thereupon after the man was resentenced to be hanged. That aj> pcal was based on improper communi cation with the jury by a <leput> sheriff. The moti'iv was appealed and sustained by the appellate court, the ease being sent hark for a new trial. Ill January, t hi - year, Harris was again tried, convicted and sentenced to he hanged. Attorneys for the defense appealed on the p ound .that the court failed to charge on the element of actual combat in connection with vol untary manslaughter. The Supreme Court reviewed the evidence, cited a portion to show that Pierce had a re volver, and there was evidence indicat ing a mutual combat, upon which the court should hare charged the jury where requested ill writing to do so or not, hence the trial court v versed and the case goes back for a third trial. Harris has been confined in Fulton I jail until a few months ago, when he was taken back to Floyd County as one of the first prisoners in the new jail. He will probably be tried again at the next term of Floyd County Su I preme Court.

Financial Condition Demonstrates That Combined Assets of the American Woodmen Are $1,000,000 The officers’ council of the Chicago district, at a recent meeting, endorsed a program for a campaign for mem* ') tship. This organization has already a membership of 100,000 men and women, and its jurisdiction covers ac tive work in twenty-three states. Last Saturday evening the deputies, officers and members of the Chicago district met f6r a jolly good time, and a “feast in the forest” at 3336 Indiana avenue. All lodges in Chicago, with the'ir friends, were well represented. Mr. Jbseph J. Attwell. supervisor, gave some very interesting facts regarding this wonderful fraternal organization. The work in Chicago is showing re markable increase throughout the coun try. During the last four years, nearly $2,000,000 were paid in .dues. During this time, with 1,000 death claims fully paid, the hooks show A balance of $1,000,000 in the reserve fund. The American Woodmen came through the war and tlu period with 20,000 new members and $500,000 more than at tlie beginning of that period; increased its membership during the reconstruction year following, on a basis of 20 per cent more than any fraternal insurance operated exclusive ly by people of our group.
