HARMONY REIGNS IN PAR1Y COUNCILS UNGER OF DEFER) GONE COURT DECISION CLEARS SITU ATION-HAYS IS REGOG NIZED NOMINEE. Little Roc, July 12.—Harmony again neigns in the Democratic party and all hands will work for the elec tion of Geo. W. Hays ,the nominee for governor on the Democratic ticket. The majority decision of the su preme court Friday, in which the in junction granted by Chancellor Mar tineau was set,aside, paved the way for Secretary of State Earl W. Hod ges to issue directions to the county election commissioners to ignore his certification »of the ticket to them with the Democratic nominee' left off, and pkjoe .there the name of Geo. W. Hays. This notice was sent out by Secretary of State- Hodges Friday afternoon and will reach the commissioners in time to have the name printed on the tidkefc in itc regular place. Tim -opinion or the court, concurred in in full by .three members, Associate Justices Kirby, Hart and Wood, par tially by Associate Justice Smith, and dissented to iir most parts by -Chief Justice McCulloch, declares the party miner settle its «vn disputes, the eoc taatanr. wdtM> fails in the central cmd mittee having the right to appeal to the state convention, and if he fail* there he has gone to his last resort, unless he ean get satisfaction at a court of law, through mandamus pro ceedings. Chief Justice McCulloch holds that the chancery court has ju risdiction to act in the matter if there is a sufficient showing of fraud, but he does not claim such a showing was made in this case, and his opinion along this line will be issued later. With only one contestant in the Democratic party, Col. Brundidge hav ing bowed to the decision of the court and declared himself to be a good Democrat, the State Central Commit tee will not have such a strenuous time ahead, for the Bull Moose and the Republican party that no danger is anticipated. If the two wings of the Republicans should unite there will still be no room for fear. The Brundidge Democrats will now sup port the nominee and declare that all reports of their swinging in behind the Bull Moose candidate to be un founded. PEOPLE Made Strong by Vinol.

Little Rock, July 10.—Shibley Mor ton, a negro officer of Crittenden county, convicted of robbery and sen tenced to serve three years in the state prison, was Wednesday after noon pardoned by Governor Futrell— the first unconditional pardon he has issued since he has been in office. According to the facts presented to the governor, a negro druggist declin ed to pay the license imposed upon him and the officer was told to enforce collection. Morton is 6aid to have gone into the drug store 'and asked the druggist in which pocket he kept the money due for the license. The druggist patted a pocket and thus in dicated he carried a cashier register in that portion of his trousers.
