Apr.uitf. A shocking accident happened to John S Miller, ex-editor of the Clarksville Democrat, this morning. He was sitting in the office of L. A. Ragsdale about 9 o'clock, having a double-barreled breech-loading shot gun in his hand, which was accident ally discharged, sending a load of shot through his left arm just a frac tion above the wrist. The hand was torn almost off by the charge, render ing amputation necessary. There is no telling Just at present how the gun was discharged. Mr. Miller was sitting on a sofa in the office toying with the gun. W. B. Sheldon, who is book-keeper for L. A. Ragsdale, was sitting in a chair near the table, which is only a few feet from the sofa. Mr. Sheldon was not looking at Mr. Miller at the time the gun was discharged. It is stated that Miller asked some one after the acci dent, how the load came to be in the gun. He had been out hunting Thursday afternoon, and on coming in he took the shells out of the gun as he thought. He evidently left one In the gun, as only one barrel was loaded. Anyway it is a terrible ac cident and will lose him his left hand. His wife was summoned and the scene was pathetic in the extreme when she found her husband almost unconscious from the pain and the loss of blood. She stood the shock firmly, however, and did not give down under the trial. The news soon brought a crowd of friends and eurious people to the spot, wanting to see the wounded man. The doors were locked and only the physicians and a few inti mate friends were allowed in the of fice. He was finally taken to his home on First street, accompanied by physicians and friends. For the last four months Mr. Mil ler has been in the insurance business, and had been making it a success He represents several leading fire and life insurance com panics, and car ried several thousand dollars in acci dent policies.

The city authorities and the Elec tric Light Co. are again at logger heads. At the meeting of the board of Aldermen Thursday night the Electric Light Company made proposition to furnish the city twen ty-eight lights at $7 00 per month per light. It was voted to accept this proposition by the board, but Chairmon John Hurst, of the Light committee, thought at the time that the city could get along with fewer lights, provided fifteen of them were raised thirty-five feet from the ground, and told the board so. The matter was dropped in this position Later on during the session the ques tion o: light for the city was called up the second time. It was then or dered by the board that the commit tee on lights contract with theElectric Light Company for twenty or twen ty-five lights at $7.00 per month This the Electric Light Company re fuse to accept. They want the twen ty-eigbt lights as per proposition, or none. The president of the company told a Leaf-Chronicle reporter this morning that the company would not enter into a contract for twenty-five lights at $7.00 per month per light. Mr. Hurst says the city cannot afford to pay for more than twenty-five lights at the price asked, an aggregate of $2,100 against about $1,304) for the full service of thirty lights heretofore. The company aska the city to pay more per light for twenty-eight lights than it asks of the individual who takes only two lights. Mr. Hurst says.the com mittee can make other arrangements for street lights. FROM PORT ROYAL. ttossip Prom One of the Oldest Towns in the State.
