CAUSE OF THE TROUBLE.
Wilson, La., Sept. 18.-Dl)r. Jno.
C. McKowen of Clinton was .shot
and killed by State Senator iR. E.
Thomplson on the Wilson and Clin

Wilson tc-day. Mr, Thompson w. a

ed fire on him. Thompson immine
diately drew his revolver, which
was in his saddle pockets, and re.
trned the fire, one ball striking I)r.
McKowen on the right knuckle,
wvhich disabled him. The second
struck him below the chin and af
terwards proved fatal.
'Thie pistol used by McKowen wRa
a 44 calibre, one chamber was dis
charged, and a couple of cartridges
failed to fire. Thomupson's pistol
was a38calibre,which was discharg
ed six times.
The trouble which brought on
the shooting as near as can be
learned, started from charges insti
gated by Dr. McKowen against
Thompson at the Ilst term of court
a few weeks ago, in behalf of his
sister, Mrs. 'ipes, and which w r
thrown out by the grand jury.
Some months ago Mrs. Sallie
Pipes, Dr. McKoweu's sister, maie
an affidavit against 'Jhompson for
_!reenIv. or for moving a wire fence
which was on a dividing line ic
tween their property. Mrs. Pipes
claims she had paid one-half of the
expense to have it built. The case
went before the grand jury. They
did not find a true bill against
Thompson, and this angered Dr.
McKowen. They met on the road
this morning about three miles
from Clinton. when the shooting
took place. Thompson claims Mc
Kowen tired the first shot. No
otiher persons saw or heard of the
tight until Dr. McKowen was seen
on the road by Mills and the negro
girl. Thompson came to Clinton
and surrendered to Sheriff Bennett.

The Confederate Monument.
The Confederate monument,
which it is proposed to erect in
the court hoiuse grounds, will
not be merely 4n ornament to the
town, but the ekpression of loyalty
and devotion to the tried soldiers
of the Southland, .a visible sign
that though old ideals pass away
yet they are not forgotten, but
are cherished in the memory of a
reverent posterity. In addition
to the contribution of the Po!ice
Jury of this parish to the fund,
much more will be required to pay
for a monument suitable for the
purpose in view,therefore, consider.
able labor still lies before the joint
committee of the U. C. V. Camp
and the Police Jury, before a reali
zation of their hopes can be effect
ed. But the work is worthy of
best effort, and is, in itself, a con.
stant inspiration to exertion.
Tile True Democrat welcomes
the undertaking for several reasons.
Principally on account of the senti
ients above exIpresse(d, :111 also,
in the hope that it will prove an
incentive to beautifying the town
further. It will certainly awaken
a desire to pu' the court house
yard ill a condition in keeping with
the monument, so that in future
years, the home.loving citizen need
not blush for the plain and shabby
appearance of these public grounds.
Let all hasten the day, as best
each may, when thie monument
will be a reality, a beauteous memo
rial set in harmnonions environ
A memorial service for the late
President of the United States, Win
McKinley, was held at .the Roman
Catholic Church, Thursday 1% a. inm.
tihe Rev. Father Ayres conducting
tilthe religious ceremonial. Hon.
.los. L. Golsan delivered the pane
gyric on the character of the dis
tinguished uman, whom the nation
" honors in life and in death.
At 11 o'clock, like services were
I held in Grace Episcopal Church,
Rev. Louis Tucker, rector. The
order of exercises were as follows:
Morning Prayer ; Hymn, "Lead
Kindly Light"; Address on Presi
c dent McKinley by IIon. Samuel
McC. Lawrasneon; Hymn, "Guide Mle
O Thoum Great Jehovah"; Scripture
Lesson; Hlynm, "My (;God, My
Falher, Whlile I Stray--lThy Will
Ble Done"; Reading of the Collect
iymin, ".Nearer My God To Thee";
P'rayer; Benedict ion.
Thie hynlnschosen were particn
larly approp riate, the first being
a favorite of IPresident McKinley
himself, the thlir 1 voiced his coun
try's sorrow Iand resignation, while
tile last were his own thoughts in
his dying hour:
"Nearer my God to Thee,
Even though it be a cross
That raiseth mue."
The scripture lessons were read
by Rev. G. P. White. Jndge S.
Mc(. Lawuason had been chosen
to deliver the eulogy oii the late
chief executive, which ihe did,
with taste and feeling, closing
his address withi a glance at thie
future, urging th le necessity of lay
ing aside old fashioned ideas and
comnig to a realization that the
country has grown ill s:ope as iii
Ipower and Imlust now take its posi.
tion as a le:adling ome among tile
imit ions of thie world. 'I'The entire
services were very impressive, and
indicative of thie general feeling o(f
resl)ect for the natioli's chief exe
emtive and of sorrow and imdignation
at his uttime.ly end. As a peopile,
ours are second to none in loyalty
to the national governuenti, anid it
has been shown by tile unainmity
with which they have lparticilated
ill every possible expression of re
spect for the late President.
The memorial services were well
attended, and the miost noteworthy
feature of the auliCcm:e was the
pr. sence of the military antd frater
nlal organizatioms. The \Vest Feli
ciana Rifles under Capt. Kilbourne;
the ConfederateVcterani,under D)r.
F.M.Mumford,the Sons of Veterans
"falling in" with their elders, and
the Masons, J. U. lThomas, Wor.
shilpful Master, h;ad all marched in
ranks to tile church, meeting at
Feliciana Lodge for that purpose.
There were also several Knights
Templar, whose beautiful uniform
added much to the effectiveness of
the scene. A Sahbath.like stillness
was over the towns during th:
two hours of the service, as iln re
