Louisville Breaks the Beoord So Far as Kentucky is Concerned, And Bends Four Men at the Same Min uto Into Eternity From the Gallows. Special to the Leaf-Chronicle. ' Louisville, Dec. 9. Louisville has a quadruple hanging on its hands to-day, and the men and tke raur deredareof the ordinary low brawl character. The execution, if it takes place and if trie Governor again re fuses to commute the sentence of any one of the murderers, is interesting only from the fact that it is Louis ville's first quadruple hanging. Stephen Hite and Dennis McCar thy, two white men, are perhaps the mpst interesting characters. Hite joined the Catholic church about a week ago and has made a full con fession to Father Brady, his confes sor. The odd fact in his case is his rc-marriage to Mrs. Hite while in his cell. He leaves a bright girl and a son. Dennis McCarthy, who refused during a period of three months after his conviction to talk to anybody, has also made a confession to Father Brady. Nelson Lewis and Grant Thomas are the colored rren who are to hang to-day. Thomas is the murderer of Birdie Coleman, a woman with whom he had lived for some years and whom he killed in a drunken brawl. He still insists that the mur der was committed by others and that circumstantial evidence alone M'ere brought up aguinst him. Thomas will be attended to the gallows by Rev. C. 0. Bates, of the Lampton Street Colored Baptist church. Father Lawler, of St. Patrick's church, will accompany McCarthy and Father Brady and his assistant will support the other convicted men. Hite, in his last interview with his wife, showed a wonderful depth of feeling for a man so ignorant and de praved. "The only regret I have," he told her in the presence of the death watch, "is that I will have made you the widow of a marl who was hanged and my daughter the child of a man who met his death at the gallows." Hite has for months carried close to his heart two tin types. One is that of his wife and on the back of this he has written in a legible hand "Mrs. Jennie Hite, wife of S. It. H., one of the noblest and best of wives." The otfier is the picture of his daughter, which bears on the back the following: "To ray daughter: 1 hope she will grow up a true, good woman."

The Superintendent of Prisons Wanted at Goal Greek. He Telia a Memphis Reporter that the Trouble la Not Over In East Tennessee. Eth B. Wade, Superintendent of State Prisons, was in Memphis this week and interviewed by a reporter for the Appeal-Avalanche. The fol lowing is taken from that interview, regarding 'the mining troubles in East Tennessee : What is the condition of affaire in Coal Creek, Mr. Wade?' was asked. ' Well,' was the teply, I have just left Coal Creek, and from what I could see and bear I have reason to believe that the feeling against the employment of convict labor is just as strong as ever. In fact, there is every indication or lurbuiency among the miners, and I have no doubt that if the troops were with drawn the stockades would be at tacked again. It is only the presence of the military that over-awes the miners.' "'How many soldiers are there guarding the mines now?' " 'There are 120 at Coal Creek and 40 at another mine not far distant," was the reply, "and should they be removed trouble is sure to follow. The miners are dissatisfied and un ruly, and the recent rumor of ex pected trouble is by no means an ex aggeration of the condition of affairs in and about Coal Creek. Monroe, the supposed leader of the outbreak, and another fellow, who, it is sup posed, shot one of the militia, are still in jail, being unable to get out on bail." " 'Do you think convictions will follow in their cases ?" " 'Hardly," was the reply. "Why, to show you the state of feeling in that section, I was told, while there, that nine warrants had been sworn out against me for giving informa tion to Gen. Carnea, upon which he based his indictments against some of the miners who were ar rested. These warrants charged me with libel and false arrest and im prisonment, and they will doubtless be served should the opportunity for so doing ever present itself. I learned this on the eve of my departure." Strength and Health. If you are not feeling strong and healthy, try Electric Bitters. If "La Grippe" has left you weak and weary, use Electric Bitters.

In .the House a bill was passed by almost a unanimous vote, which al lows convicts ninety days a year for good, behavior, instead of sixty, the present law.

He remarked that Mr. Stagg had thrown together some odds and ends, from a full store of general information, based on experience and application to study, and had made a lecture' that will stand muster anywhere. rhose who heard the lecture speak of it iu very complimentary terms.

There is a growing belief in Clarks ville political circles that thetewill be a deadlock over the selection ol a United States Senator when the Leg islature meets. The opinion seems to prevail that neither Senator Bate nor Ex-Gov. Taylor can secure the two-thirds vote of the Legislature and that the lines between them have been so strongly tlrawn that their men will remain firm, and in fact obstinate. If this proves the case then there is a chance for a comprom ise candidate, or whit U commonly called a dark horse. If this condi tion of things prevails the friends of Col. House in Clarksville will push him for the place. There is no man in the State who would make a bet ter Senator, and none who would command more respct in the Nation al Senate. Why not have him?

Business Picking Up All Along the Line. The Leaf-ChronloU Finds It Necessary to Increase Its Slse to bupply Ad vertisers With Spaoe. The outlook for a big Christmas trade in Clarksville was never better than it is now. The merchants are all preparing to supply their trade with the goods the market affords, and from the looks of the show win dows they are making a great suc cess of the undertaking. There seems to be a fight up among the merchants in all lines, each trying to excel the other. They are making their goods appear as attractive as possible and there are now some very pretty show windows and interior decorations in the city prettier per haps than they were last Christmas. ThW is right. There is nothing wrong in merchants trying to excel each other in making their houses attractive. They should do so. The public always appreciates efforts in this direction, and merchants will find that if they make their houses attractive, and let the fact be known through the columns of a paper they will have better trade. There is more money in circulation in this country now than has been here for many years at this time of the year. The tobacco crop began moving early and money is being scattered among the farmers every day. The trade Is already feeling It, and there seems te be a popular feeling that trade will be fine from now until Christmas at least. " The Leaf-Chronicle can testify by its own business that there is a better feeling all along the line. Sel dom have we ever been called on for more advertising space than during the last few days. So great has been this demaud that we liavo found It necessary to increase the size of the paper to accommodate the reading public and the advertisers both. This all goes to 9how that the merchants know there is mouey in the country and that the mail who gets it must be up and doing. To supply the demands on our columns we have enlarged the -Leaf-Chron icle to day to six pages, while to morrow it will be enlarged to eight pages. We propose to keep this up as long as the demand is made for space. A Little Girl's Experience in A Lighthouse. Mr. and Mrs. Loren Trescot are keepers of the Gov.

Doctors at home and at Detroit treat ed her, but in vain, she grew worse rapidly, until she was a mere "hand ful of bones".
