It?Tho many friends of CoL T. Moore Jaoluon In this city are very glad Indeed to know that be has -won ont In tie suit lnvolvlug tie sale of hie four thousand acre tract of coal in Harriwn comity. It will be remembered that tils tract of coal was sold by hto receivers at less than half its value and as me matter did not look well to some of the credltors of Col Jackson thty assisted him in contesting the sale, with, the result that the sale has Dees eetaslde by Judge Dayton's court aid It Is further ordered that the action of the trustees be Investigated. The decision will amount to more than half a million dollars to Col. Jackson. It will be recalled that Col. Jackson was heavily Involved by the failure of the TradersNational bank, of Clarksburg, but like an honest man he, being , one of the directors, pat up all the property he bad to protect tbe credit of the bank, it Is believed that a thorough Investigation of this matter will reveal a conspiracy gotten up by at leaBt two large corporations to get this desirable coal field for less than half Its value. This Is another case of high finance by local people. John Kelly, the shoe string man; QUARREL LEAD UP TOJIURUER CHILDREN MUDDIED SPRING AND PARENTS HAD QUARREL OVER IT, WHEELING, Aug. H.?A quarrel that had Its Inception In children muddying tbe waters of a small spring on Bowman's run led to the murder of John S. Nolte yesterday morning by Albert Aultman. Three shots were fired by Aultman, ajl taking effect an.1 causing almost Instant death, while It was .preceded by Mre. Aultman being knocked senseless by Nolte, which angered her husband to murder. A heavy " * ? A ..n.dlti,!, moo TBOfln. piece OI it uy 1 buouwiub w*.- ..v~r on Nolte used on the woman and Aullman, who will he defended by Attorney S. 0. Boyce, It Is understood will take the defense that the case was justifiable homicide and that he shot to defend his wife. Aultmap, after the shooting, gave himself up and It in the county jail, where he is held without bond for a hearing on Friday at 1 o'clock, which will he conducted before Justice W. IV, Rogers. The dead man is 49 years of age. a mlllman by trade and a former policeman. while Aultman is an employe of the National Tube Company. The two families, who live near each other in Bowman's addition to the city, on Bowman's run, about a quarter of a mile from its joining with Caldwell's run. have been having trouble for some time past. Yesterday morning it was precipitated by two of the Aultman children digging in a spring, and the two women were drawn into the quarrel. Aultman, who came out to clean the spring out agalo. was drawn into It also and later Nolle came. tVords led to blows, then the assault .upon Mrs. Aultman and the fatal shots. Following the crime the greatest of excitement prevailed. Hundreds flocked to the scene and Aultman walked quietly away and came to the city, giving himself up at police headquarters, from where he was quickly taken to the jail. The affair occurred at about 11 o'clock and before noon Coroner Rogers, with Attorney R. M. Adrlleman, were upon the, scene and the Inquest was well under way. The tendency to fight even then was not all over and upon several occasions it looked as though fresh trouble would break out. The Inquest. The story is probably told of the murder best ab the evidence was offered at the Inquest by the eye witnesses. The evidence showed the quarreling first began over the action of the children and all the family were tnklnc nart on both th'e Nolle and Aultman aide. Mm. Aultmnn cannot tel) a great deal about the crime, as at the serious point she -was struck over the head with a club and knocked senseless, but knows that shots were flred and saw Mr. Nolte run Into the yard and fall. -Previously he had made the remark that he would fix the Aultmans, It is said. Anna Belts and Nora Nolte were present at the time. WHISKEY WHIPPED HIM. So Richmond Drug Clerk Take* Hit Own Life. RICHMOND, Va?

REPORTS OF THE STATISTICIANS AS TO COAL PRODUCTION, SEX AMONG LITTER8 OF PIGS, WHISKEY CONSUMED AND WAQE8, WASHINGTON, Aug. li.-The statisticians keep at work all the time and while flmires are usually dull reading there Is now and then an emission from the census or other bureaus that Interests the public; This week we are told by the geological survey thai this country produced 414,000,000 tons of coal last year, worth (500,000,000. West Virginia produced a great part of this amount, ranking next to Pennsylvania In coal production. The animal husbandry section of the department of agricultural contributes a thrilling Item -to the stltlstlcal Information of the day when It informs us that In litters of pigs the number of males slightly exceeds the number of females, the ratio being 201 to 200, Is another argument In favor of the supremacy ot the male sex throughout nature. Commissioner of Internal Revenue John G. Capers, Issued a few figures about whiskey! He tells ui that there Is much more whiskey remaining in the warehouses this year than last That may mean that the distilleries are making more, or-lt may mean that the people'ate drinking less. Anyhow there are 20,000,000 more gallons in the warehouses awaiting consumption than a year ago. And now for some more figures ol another and dryer sort. Yet It is in terestlng just now when the working people are talking strike and striking Last year the enormous sum of ter and one-thtrd billion dollars was paid to wage earners in this country. These figures give an annual average Income or $450 to each person employed. The profits of capital last year on the labor of others was but three and one-hal billion dollars.
