Phone CM. 57-4t One-Cent Postage. Those of us who can recollect that long, recall that some 12 or 15 years ago the republican party in Nation il con vention assembled made one-cent letter postage one of their planks in the plat form of promises. It has never done so as you would notice it, because the way the Postoffice Department has been run precluded it and one-cent postage went to join the long list of unfilled promises by the party so long in power. j It may not be generally known, but there is an organization styled the Nat ional One-cent Letter Association, with headquarters at Cleveland, O., which is demanding of Congress that letter post age be reduced one-half. Remember ing the high cost of transportation of letters many years ago, the present rat is not oppressive, but if the revenues of the postoftice department will admit of the reduction of one cent, the democrat ic party can make a big bit by doing so. With a Postmaster General thoroughly decided to put the postoffice on a busi ness basis, there is little doubt that if this reduction cannot be made now, it can be in a year or two. If while reducing the tariff on the necessities of life the democratic party could also reduce the letter postage, its popularity would be so greatly in creased that there would be no question of a further lease of power. When the poor man can feed and clothe himself without giving up his all and write let ters to his friends with but the tax of a cent, everybody will be so satisfied and happr that socialism, which showed so largely an inc eased vote at the last election, will peter out like the populist, prohibition and other so-called parties, which spring up today and are gone tomorrow.

About midnight Saturday the peace and quietude of the city was broken by four pistol shots, three of. which were in rapid succession. Policemen Jesse Dykes and Claude Devore were quickly on the scene, being only about fifty yards away and seeing the flashes. Arriving, they found Albert Ilouse, who was placed under arrest and put in jail. Over in llayden Estill's negro pool-room they found George Bronston, a well known negro, dying with three bullet-holes if) his breast. He died five minutes later. Mr. House was brought before Judge Shackelford Monday morning, butCoun ty Attorney Jackson was not ready, and the examining trial was set for this morning at 9 o'clock. Application was made for bail for Mr. House by his At torneys, Messrs. II. C. Rice and S. A. D. Jjnes, but this was denied on the ground that bail could not be allowed before some of the witnesses were heard and the prosecution was not prepared for such. Application for guard was then made and Judge Shackelford granted this and Policeman Claude Devore was elected and he acted. A I the tr'.al this morning, both sides announced ready and a number of witnesses were examined. Mr. Ilouse testified, and be was substantiated, that 'he was passing not far from Hayden's pool-room when George Bronston, who was standing in or near the door, made a remark to him, using a vile epithet. "Did you intend ihaj. for me," asked House. Bronston replied that he did not call anybody such names, but at the same time fired at Mr. Ilouse missing him. It was then that Mr. Ilouse used bis weapon and fired three sho s into Bronston's body. Messrs. Dykes and Devore swore that when they entered Estill's pool-room they saw a negro named Lewis Gilbert with a pistol in his hand and they asked him where he got the weapon. He answered thut he had gotten it from Bronston The pistol was found to con tain one empty shell and one chain b( r had no cartridge. There were only three witnesses for the lefo!ise and they all swore virtually the same. There were others present but it was not deem ed necessary to introduce them. Eleven were offered for the prosecution aid they differed only as to the number of pistol shots fired. There was do speech on either side. Judge Shackelford an nounced that he would hold the de fendant over to the grand jury on bis owa recognizance of $500, and the wit ness $100 each.

The members stood nine for conviction and three for acquittal. Col. Allen in asking Judge Kerr to dismiss the case aginst Dolan, said he would have moved for a dismissal fol lowing the last trial, but for the fact that the jury brought in a verdict of guilty and in view of that circumstance he did not think that it was consistent to recommend a dismissal. He said he did not think that it was fair to Dolan to ask him to go into acoiher trial in view of the five trials and no legal conviction. ii-- bi. i la a wonderful exhibition of canine intelligenca . , Ailuline (k nee, the Wonderful liulterfl)- Dunce and Kope Jumping VEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHTS AT OPERA HOUSE A Great Big Good Show for 13 Cents Acrobatic Sriuiis Tlieui iilaj ifiu Hide eud Seek We have a full line of Cow Peas, pure German Millet, Sorghum Seed.
