Atlanta, Oct. 1 9 The police are
on the look-out for one Leonard Wil
liamson, a well known farmer of
Emanuel county, for whose arrest a
reward of $300 is offered.
Williamson is wanted for the killing of
Lawton Collins, another young farm
er, about the same age as Williamson.
Williamson was engaged to be mar
lied to a certain young lady and had
bought the marriage license, when the
affair was broken off by Collins telling
something uncomplimentary about
Williamson's father, who is a Meth
odist preacher, it is said, told his sdn
to make Collin apologize, and if he did
not to kill him. Williamson invited Col
lins to take a drive, and while riding
along attracted Collins1 attention by
pointing at some object on the road
side. While Collins' head was turned
Williamson plunged his knife into
Collins' throat and gave a jerk across
the flesh, making a wound from which
the life blood poured. Collins fell out
and Williamson cut Collins in thirty
different places. He immidiately
fled. The people of Emanuel are
much incensed, and if Williamson was
in their hands now he would probably
be lynched.

Minneapolis, Oct. 19. A. J. Horp
mann, of this cily, who has been in
vestigating the condition of the farm
ers in Ramsey county, D. T., who
were reported to be starving to death,
returned last night. He says there
are seventy families who are obsolute
ly destitute ot food and fuel, and
something must be done and immi
diattly . The real condition of the
people is beyond description. Men,
woman and children are in rags, and
thev have not a cent of money in the
world. Their crops were totally des
troyed, and their land, stock, and
farm implements are mortgaged. Ab
solute distress prevails everywhere.
A minister was living in one room
with his wife and two small children.
One of the latter was wrapped up in
a crib in order to keep warm, and the
other was blue aud shivering with
cold and emaciated with hunger.
There was no fuel with exception of a
little dry manure, which is all that any
of the families have to burn, and the
only food they had to eat was dry
Mr. Horpmann says the frost,
which came in August, destroyed all
the wheat that there was, as well as
all the vegetables, even those 'which
were as hardy as turnips.

DalLis, Oct. 19. Of all the dajs in
the history of the Dallas tair since the
first opening of the gates, in 1886, this
has been the greatest. It v. ill doubt
less ne remembered in future years, as
a red letter day, although it may pro-perl,-
be termed a "white Friday."
From early in the morning until after
noon long excursion trains pulled
crowds in. They came from Fort
Worth, from Denison, from Longview,
from Corsicana, from Cleburne, from
Kaulman and to embrace the whole
business in a systematical way, they
came from Texas. Fully 20,000 were
present on the grounds at one time.
Old army men said 40,000 would
come nearer the proper estimate. At
any rate all throughout the day expo
sition hall and machinery hall, were
thronged, county exhibit hall was
packed and so with every department,
including the loud-mouthed fakir's
tents. It was the largest crowd ever
polled together in Texas, not except
ing the anti rally at Fort Worth last
year. Fifteen thousand children went
through the gates uniformed schools
were there.
To morrow is "drummeis day," and
a large crowd is expected, though not
so many as to-day.

Savanah, Oct. 19. Rev D. P. Mc
Donald, of ICarly county, a white Bap
tist preacher, has been acquitted of
the charge of murder, for which
he has been on trial for the past
On the eve of Aug. 17, while Mr.
R. F. Chandler was returning home
from town in a one-horse wagon, he
was met by McDonald, when, with
out a word being passed, Chandler
arose in his wagon and hurled a rock
at McDonald with great force, knock
ing out some of his teeth and cutting
quite a cash on his lip. A second
stone was thrown, striking him in the
breast, making a painful wound.
Mr. McDonald fired his psstol at
Chandler three tunes, one shot taking
effect, producing immediate death.
Messrs McDonald and Chandler had
been unfriendly for some time on ac
count of some disparaging reports
against McDonald s character, which
hand been circulated by Chandler,
the latter suspecting his wife of a fond
ness for McDonald. McDonald fled,
running, after the killing.
When the court convened he came
in and surrendered himself.
