PROBE BEGINS
UNDER GUARD
Militia Protects Tennessee Grand
JuryMany Men Already
Under Arrest
I
Memphis Tenn Oct 2ijWhat
may happen as a result of the investi
gation of night rider depredations in
the northwestern section of this state
is a matter of conjecture With the
convening of the circuit court for
Ohio county in special session today
at Union City to formally Investigate
the death of Qulnten Rankin who
was killed by a night rider band in
the vicinity of Reelfqqt lake Monday
Mondaynight
night last that section is under the
complete domination of military rule
FIve companies of the state national
guard will be at the disposal of Col
onel Tatogn the military commander
to enforce martial law and it is pro
posed to gather in every member of
the band To aid the militia the ad
joining counties have been drawn on
for possess of picked men Should
this force be inadequate to cope with
the situation it is declared that the
entire military force of the state will
be concentrated if necessary
In the Reelfoot lake district the
lake itself Is the source of contention
actlvltyofthe
the socalled night rider organization
It was contended by those living in
the vicinity that it was their right to
ply their vocation as fishermen in its
waters without molestation while the
owners of the land upon which the
lake Is situated took the opposite
view In the courts the latter the
Western Tennessee Land company of
which Captain Rankin and Cohmel R
Z Taylor of Trenton were the organ
izers and are largely Interested were
upheld
Then followed the night rider warn
ings threatening death to those who
opposed the wishes of the members of
the band It was upon the first visit
In many months to the lake region
that Captain Rankin was killed
Men with moneyed interests have
been forced to leave their homes and
upon others who refused to obey warn
ings corporal punishment has been
inflicted Notwithstanding the efforts
of the local authorities the depreda
tions continued during the past year
the situation becoming more and
more serious until with the killing of
Captain Rankin It was proven neces
sary for the state officers to act
From Nashville two companies actI
state troops were hurried forward thu
day following the lynching and Gov I
ernor Patterson abandoning for the
tim6 a campaign for reelection theI
to the scene to personally direct the
work of ferreting out the members of
the mob and the gathering of evi
dence Two other military companies
went from this city Of a number o f I
men arrested 10 are being held and I
it is that when the d
promised grand
jury is convened sufficient evidence
will be furnished to secure the indict
went of every member of the night
rider organization The sessions oU
the court will be under military pro
tection a company of militia arriving
from Nashville this morning especial

with a monster demonstration in this
city William J Bryans advent into
the Empire state was an auspicious
one It has been a red letter day
remarked the candidate while rest
ingr in the stateroom of his private
car He was greeted all the way
through the entire tour by enor
mous crowds his audience at Port
Jarvis Binghamton and at this city
being made up largely of working
men At Binghamton he replied toI
the presidents recent letter regarding °
labor He said
The president declares that he Is
willing to do everything for labor ex
cept to do what Is wrong He virtu
ally asserts that he will not do what
Is wrong for anybody We must all
applaud this resolute determination
on the part of the president to adhere
to the right but if he knew his tel
low men a little better he would not
feel so lonesome on this subject He
is not the only one In tho country who
desires to do right There are really
a great many good people in this
country who are just as anxious to do
right as the president but many of t
them differ from him as to what is
right and they are not willing to ad I
mit that they are doing wrong merely
because they differ from him
The president seems to think it J
would be wrong to establish a depart
ment of labor with a secretary of la
bor in the cabinet I beg to differ
from the president on this too and
I believe that a majority of the Amer
ican voters differ from him
theydesire
gt in wish
ing to give labor representation in the
cabinet He believes it would bs
wrong to amend the law against a
trusts so as to exclude the labor or
ganizations from the operation of that
law I differ from him and I believe
a majority 6f the American people do
11 The president believes It would be
wrong to limit the issue of an injunc
tion as is proposed in the Democratic
platform We believethat the injunc f
tlon should not be issued in a labor
dispute merely because there is a la
bor dispute We believe that no in
junction is justified in a labor dispute
unless the conditions are such as
would warrant an injunction it there
were no labor dispute I believe that
a majority of the American people
agree with us in this
The president thinks it would be
wrong to grant a trial by jury in aJJ
case of direct contempt but I bellev
that a majority of the America eo
pIe think with us that a laboring man
is as much entitled to the protection
of trial by jury as a man accused of a
crime It is a pure assumption on the
tpart of the president and a groundless
assumption that those who desire the
legislation set forth in the Demo
cratic platform desire it because they >
are willing to do wrong The trouble
with the president is that he does i
not recognize the possibility of an
error in his own judgment and wili > 1
not admit that any one opposed to
him can possibly be right
