Little Rock, Ark 1 BENTON ALSO HAS DEPOT [ROUBLE Little Rock, July 10.—The St. Louis,; Iron Mountain & Southern Railway! Company yesterday afternoon peti tioned the Pulaski Chancery Court for | an injunction against the railroad j commission of Arkansas. W. L. Moose, t attorney general; W. E. Floyd, secre- i tary of the railroad commission, and J. S. Utley, prosecuting attorney for the seventh judicial district, to re strain the defendants from causing to be enforced the order of the commis sion providing for the erection of the new Iron Mountain passenger station at Benton. In an order issued several weeks ago, following several hearings of the j petitions, the railroad commission di rected that the station be erected at a point midway between the site of the old station and the proposed site asked for by a number of Benton petitioners. In the opinion of the commission this site was the best of the three of fered for decision. In the petition for the injunction the railroad sets forth that the site selected by the commis > sion is impracticable because it is on a grade and near the approach to a curve. The complaint alleges that it will be unsafe to stop trains at this point and asks that the injunction be granted to prevent enforcement of the order. “FAIR” STORES AN ARKANSAS PRODUCT EIGHTEENTH IN CHAIN CON TROLLED BY HARRISON MAN OPENED HERE. The “Fair” stores, a chain of mer cantile establishments, of which which the one just opened at Conway makes the eighteenth in operation in this state, is strictly an Arkansas product, according to J. E. Mason of Searcy, who has been here assisting in open ing up the new business and in ar ranging for a sale of the stock pur chased from Wilkins & Walthall. Mr. Mason is a former newspaper man, having been for several years editor' of the twice-a-week Banner at Harri son. I The idea of the stores is that of F. j Jt. Mitchell of Harrison, who about 12 j years ago Opened “The Fair No. 1, ] at Harrison, with a capital of $1,000, j For several years past new stores have been opened^ at various points, the operation being confined until re^ tenth to northwest Arkansas. No. 11 was opened a few weeks ago at Cai lisle and No. 19 will be opened at Kensett August 1, making in White county-. Each store, Mr. Mason states, is a separate corporation, although Mr. Mitchell « president in each corpor ation.

Mr. Mason claims that by buying in large quantities the stores are able to un dersell smaller concerns. G J. Lichlyter of Searcy is at pres ent in charge of the Conway store, but will be succeeded by the permanent manager, Ray R. Ramey of Mountain Home, within a few weeks. Mr. Lich lyter will be in charge of the new store at Kensett. The store at Conway was located and the stock of Wilkins & Walthall purchased by Mr. Mitchell, A. C. Jones and L. C. Tyson.

Lasseter, assistant ogronomist at the experimental agri jcultural college of the University of Arkansas, was here yesterday making arrangements for the extension school which will be held here August 4 to 9, inclusive. Prof Lasseter stated that he will bring a large amount of mate rial from the University to Conway for demonstration purposes, and will show the people of Faulkner county how to farm correctly, j To a Log Cabin Democrat reporter. today, Special Agent John W. Parlier said: “We want all the farmers in the county to come and get all they can out of the school, as it will be of more benefit to them than all the other schooling they have ever received. The school will not cost the farmers one cent, as the government pays the ex penses. Prof. Lasseter has promised to give us the best demonstration he possibly can.” i The only cost to those attending the school from the rural districts will be their board while here. This may be j obtained at the wagonyards at a low rate, or, as the weather is very warm, they might carnp out, as Mr. Parlier suggests. j j The school here will start at 8 o'clock Monday morning, August 4. Seven other schools of a similar na ture will be held in Arkansas this summer, as follows: Ashdown, July 21 to 26; Fort Smith, July 28 to Aug ust 2; Morrilton, August 11 to 16; iCamden, August 18 to 23; Little Rock, .August 12 to 22; Batesville, August j 25 to 30; Searcy, September 1 to 6.

A mandate from the United States supreme court or dering the dissolution of the injunc tion against thft enforcement of the commission's rates is expected at an early date, probably July 21, accord ing to the commission. Members of the commission, rate experts and representatives of the Cotton Belt and Iron Mountain rail roads were busy all day yesterday making1 needed revision of the tariff, which was issued by the commission in 1908. It was said at the commis sion office that practically all the de tails had been worked out, and the re vised tariff will be ready for distribu tion when the injunction is dismissed, and the commission rates made effec tive. The chief change in a general way, made by the revision, is the ex tension of the maximum distance cov ered by the tariff of 1908, from 300 miles to 400 miles under the new tarm. j Concerning requests being made as to how to proceed in obtaining refund of overcharges on passenger fares since the injunction against the two cent rate was granted. Railroad Com mission members say the federal court probably will appoint a "master” to supervise the work of making the re fund on both passenger and freight overcharges. The work of the master will be to determine difficult questions which will arise in adjusting the over charges made by the different rail roads. * Passenger officials of the Cotton . Belt and Iron Mountain yesterday said the applications for lefund on passenger fares will be handled through the general passenger office of the roads in St. I/Ouis. It was as sured that no person will receive a refund unless the ticket was issued by the person who presents it for refund. The Rock Island officials said the case against that road has not been decided, and until then no plans will be made as to the disposit'on of the matters. SEES NO OBJECTIONS TO OILING STREETS EDITOR LIVINGSTON OF RUS SELLVILLE TALKS OF EXPE RIENCES IN THAT rJTY. Prom Monday's Daily. Editor J. A. Livingston of the Rus sellville Courier-Democrat, who spent yesterday in Conway, is an enthusiast on the subject of oiling city streets to keep down dust. “It is much better and much less expensive than sprink ling with water,” Mr. Livingston said, “and I have never heard any objec tions raised to its use. The oiling was first tried out last year and proved so successful that many residence streets have been oiled this year. Anyone visiting Russellville during dry weath er could not help noticing the marked contrast of the dust on the unoiled streets and the lack of it on those that have been oiled. The only trouble we have had is in obtaining the oil promptly, the citizens of several sec tions of the city being impatient over a delay in shipments which has caus ed them to have to wait longer than they wished to have their dust laid.” Mr. Livingston states that it costs an average of about $40 per 300-foot block to make two applications of the oil, which will not only keep down dust but also shed water so as to pre vent mud for at least a year. The second year, he says, only one appli cation is usually needed. CONWAY MASONS ATTEND FUNERAL From Monday s Daily. Among the members oi Green Grove lodge No. 107, F. and A.

Little Rock, July 15.—After hand ing down 12 opinions and considering other pressing business matters the supreme court of Arkansas yesterday adjourned until September 21*. The court had been in constant session since last fall and the five justices welcomed the beginning of their an nual vacation. The court set aside the submission of the case of the State, ex rel. At torney General, vs. Trulock et al, commissioners of a Pine Bluff im provement district. Hearing was passed until fall for further argument and consideration. 1 The case involves the validity of all the improvement districts now in pro cess of formation. It involves the con struction of an act of the 1S13 legis lature which sought to introduce im portant changes in the law on that subject. It is said the effect of the act was to repeal the improvement dis trict law by leaving out the author ity of the city council upon the ques tion of whether or not a majority have asked for the improvement.

I PEACH CROP BEGINS TO BE MARKETED' I I I FIRST ARE CARLOADS SHIPPED, FROM WEST ARKANSAS TOWNS. , Fort Smith, July 15.—The peach crop began moving in earnest yester-1 day, when the lrst carload shipments , were made. They were out of El Do rado, De Queen and Horatio. Rains, followed by hot weather, are causing the crop to ripen fast, and from re ports received by hailroads from the southwestern pail of the fruit belt yesterday it is possible that the num ber of pickers will be inadequate to i move the crop as soon as it is ready for shipment. Although the crop from southwest ern Arkansas will be very short, its quality will be unexcelled. Unlike the crop from many of the northern sec tions, where the yield will be large, the fruit will not have a wormy ap pearance. | The first carload shipments from the Johnson orchard at Highland be gin this week. The orchard will pro duce 350 carloads this year, compared with 1,000 last year. I Cantaloupe shipments in carloads began for the first time this year wThen two carloads were .sent out of Van Bu- J ren. JURY EXONERATE ! HARROD’S SLAYER i FUNERAL SUNDAY. 4 P. M. SENTIMENT STRONG AGAINST1 MADDING, WHO RAN DOWN j NOTED LAWYER. BULLETIN: Little Rock, July 12, 2 p. m.—The coroner’s jury this afternoon exoner ated J. E. Madding, the autoist who ran down and killed Judge James H. Harrod, holding that the death was the result of an unavoidable accident. j Little Rock, July 12.—-The coroner's inquest over the body of James H. | Harrod, the distinguished attorney ! 'who was killed Friday at noon, began' at 9 o’clock Saturday morning and the I 'most of the day will probably be con-1 'sumed with the examination of wit i , nesses. 1 While it dtlmeii oy the defense that the death of Judge Harrod was *an accident and it is admitted that James E. Madding, the young man | piloting the high powered car which crashed into the distinguished citizen, had no criminal intent, yet public feel ing is high against him, because it has been shown by many witnesses that the car was traveling at a high ' rate of speed at the time of the ac cident. There has never been any dan ger of personal violence toward young Madding, but sentiment is so strong that prosecution and conviction, for at least manslaughter, is demanded. It was customary for Judge Harrod, < with neighbors, to walk to the city * every morning, he declaring that his < health demanded the exercise. At , 1 noon he usually rode home in his tour- ] ing car, but Friday he decided to take 1 1 a street car home and did not wait for . his son and the machine. As he ' stepped from the car a heavy truck 'crossed Broadway headed in the same 'direction a sthe car. The rapidly approaching car driv en by young Madding, and occupied by Aca C. Gracie and Miss Mary Mast in addition, could not be seen by Judge Harrod. The car, headed in an op posit direction from the street car and the truck, in order to avoid a collision, running full force into Judge Harrod and James Coates, the small son of ! John E. Coates, a well known insur ance man of Little Rock. I Judge Harrod was thrown againsi the curbing, the top of his head beinp crushed in as though it was an egg shell. He died instantly. James Coates received a deep gash in his throat, which extended from ear to ear. and another in his forehead. He will probably recover. ! Judge Harrod has been very promi nent in legal affairs of Arkansas foi many years. He was one of the most active of the State's attorneys in the recent rate litigation, and was slated to become United States District At torney for the Eastern District of Ar kansas. He was a classmate of Pres. Woodrow Wilson, and was the person al selection of the president for this place. The funeral will take place Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock with interment at Mt. Holly cemetery, beside the grave of his young son. Thomas, who was drowned at Ludington. Mich., two years ago. just as he was reaching his majority. A large delegation of Conway peo ple will go to Little Rock tomorrow to attend the funeral of Judge Harrod. Included in the number will be many members of Green Grove lodge No. 107, F. and A. M., of this city, in which Judge Harrod continued his membership after moving from Con way to Little Rock. The local Masons will leave at 12:07 p. m.. and proceed J.0 the Masonic Temple, Fifth and Main, where they will join with West ern Star lodge of Little. Rock, which will be in charge of the Masonic fu neral services. HAYS WINNER IN COURT DECISION MARTINEAU IS RESERVED INJUNCTION DISSOLVED AND HODGES CERTIFIES HAYS AS NOMINEE. Special to tn» Loc Cabin Democrat. Littie Rock. July 11.—The supreme court this afternoon reversed the de cree of Chancellor Martineau and gave a decision favorable to Hays in the contest proceedings instituted by Brundidge. Chancellor Martineau’s decree was reversed, the complaint dismissing and the injunction which has re strained the secretary of state from certifying out Hays as the Democrat ic gubernatorial nominee was dis solved. Justice McCulloch concurred in the general findings, but dissented on the question of jurisdiction. He held, however, that under competent alle gations of fraud the chancery court would have had jurisdiction. Justice Sm:th concurred in general, but not tn all the finds. Secretary of State Hodges said this afternoon he would certify out the name of Judge Hays as the Demo cratic nominee, so that it will be printed on all the ballots. TWO MORE CANDIDATES TO TRY, TRY AGAIN The familiar motto taught in the old primary readers is evidently th*1 maxim of at least two prominent Faulkner county citizens, who, failing to achieve their ambitions in the pri mary election of 1912, are again to be candidates for the positions they sought. E. V. Johnston of Eagle township, who made a creditable race for county treasurer before the last primary, running second in a field of [ six candidates, states that he will seek [the same position again at the next primary, and that his announcement • will appear at the proper time.
