A report was current here yesterday that three negroes had been'kllled and that James Randolph, one of the best known citi zens of the county, who had assisted in the arrest of other negroes, had been £hot. The difficulty grew out of the stealing of some corn out of the field of the Messrs. Eubanks, three miles west of Shannon, by a negro named Daven port, who was caught in the act and made to pour the corn out of his sack. The following night the Messrs. Eu banks went to the field to look out for thieves, and on returning were fired on by a squad of about forty negroes who were lined up alongside the road. None of the shots toiok effect. Messrs Ran dolph, Rogers and Barnett were Deputized to Arrest Ihose implicated in the shooting, and followed 'hree negroes into Chickasaw county. The negroes barricaded them selves in a barn, armed with shotguns. When they refused to open the door or come out the door was broken in and Randolph struck a match, when the negroes immediately opened fire on him, hitting nim in the head and shoulder. The negroes ran out and one of them was struck by the shots fired at them in the'darkness.

Peter Power himself was on the stand at the afternoon session. In a hieasure his testimony was corroborative of that given by Lawyer Lamb regarding the connection of Messrs Cockran and Weidenfeld with the suit. TURK COMES TO TIME.

The outburst of French feeling against Germany that took pla:e at the celebration of the an niversary of the battle of Mars-la-Tour (or Vionville, fought Aug. 16, 1870), is described circumstantially by a cor respondent telegraphing from Stras burg. Many inhabitants of Lorraine crossed the frontier in order to partici pate in the ceremonies. Bishop Turl r-.az of Nancy, addressing these persons, said: "You come across the border in spite of German cannon and in spite of the unhappiness hanging over your provinces, to show here, on French spil, your unshaken fidelity to the bid Fath erland.

At ^mid night thirty-six hours had passed ot the possible 120 tor the naval tween the attacking conflict be Bquadron In charge of Commander Plllsbury and the de fending squadron commanded by Rear Admiral Hlgglnson. The coming of another day was recorded, but the an ticipated meeting between the/ hostile fleets had not come to pass. After a day which had been on the whole de void of any sensations, the night, thick and cloudy as it was, with the moon, quite obscured, developed so many con tusing situations and so many extra ordinary reports that the Hlgglnson squadron had just cause for grave Un easiness. Somehow the feeling grew that it Would not be such a difficult at tainment after all for three auxiliary cruisers of the white squadron to slip in and anchor r.t some harbor, pro tected as they would be by the inviting darkness which prevailed. In the early part of the night the station at the Isle of Shoals, notified the nearest mainland point by the use of torches and the secret code of the navy that a large, strange two-masted craft had been sighted outside the shoals. Ad miral Higginson's wonderful system of signals worked to perfection. Almost in a moment, it seemed, the destroyer Decatur was was rocketed from Ports mouth to put in to pursue the mysteri ous comer," and in another moment the Dfecatur, with the smoke belching from her four great stacks, was plowing furiously through the heavy seas. The stranger turned and fled at full speed, and this fact led to the decision that she may have been one of the attacking f'eet passing onward on scout duty. At a later hour the Decatur had made no report. KNOCKED OUT BY A GIRL. Trmnp Wonts Money and Gets Some thing Else. New York, Aug. 23.

Made Immune lor Eight Months by New Discovery. Indianapolis, Aug. 23. The eastern part of Indiana has been ravaged by hog cholera for two months. A remedy has been discovered by Dr. Frederick ICemmer of Wayne county and applied to more than 400 hogs the last ten days, and not a hog so treated has died. Dr. ICemmer describes the remedy as an anti-toxine made for the cholera germ. The germ is isolated, dried and pulverized. A fluid is made of this powder and it is injected into the hog to antagonize the poison of the cholera. Dr. Kemmer says that the hog is then immune from cholera for eight months, when the operation ought to be re peated. He says that the medicine does not have any bad effect on the meat.

Hartford, Conn., Aug. 23.—President Roosevelt was, welcomed In Hartford on his New England,tour yesterday by a great burst of enthusiasm. The pres ident chowed his pleasure at the recep tion he received and delivered a well received speech last night drt important rational relations. To President Roose velt the feature of the day was the presentation of a large floral piece by the worklngmen of Hartford. Hartford was In gala dress to welcome the president, the weather was perfect and there was not a hitch to mar the pro ceedings. In Poke Park, one -of the beautiful outlying recreation spots of the city, the president was greeted by 10,000 workingmen, who presented him with a magnificent floral horseshoe inscribed: "Workingmen's welcome to oiir presi dent." Father Michael Sullivan made a few remarks of welcome, In which he com mended the Honesty and Sincerity of purpose of the president in all his acts. The president responded, and his remarks were frequently interrupted by applause. He said: "Father Sullivan: I came here to say a few words myself, but nothing that I can say will in any way have the sig nificance that the gift from the wage workers of Hartford has. I should, of course, be wholly unfitted for the posi tion I occupy if I did not give my best thought and best purpose to trying t'o serve the ••'aterests of the toiler of America. (Cheers). My most resolute purpose shall be given, and, if I may say sO. is being given, to trying to do arything that can be done to help our people. Perhaps I can do this best by trying to help as well as I. can their best purpose and their best thought. (Cries of 'Good, good.') I should like to accept that gift as in some way per sonal to myself, buj I would rather ac cept it as I know it is meant, as a Gift. From Americans to a man who for thp time being em bodies American governmental princi ples. (Cries of 'Good, good' and cheers.) Five thousand men and women ciowded the Coliseum here last night to hear the address of President Roosevelt. At least two-thirds of the audience were workingmen, and the enthusiasm manifested by them when the president alluded to the rights of the toiler aroused the keenest interest. Again and again during his prefatory re marks, which were based on the after rcon—tha presentation of a floral horse shoe by the workingmen—the president was interrupted by vociferous applause. Such side remarks as the following: "I do not care how honest a man may be, if he is timid he is no good," evoked loud laugh'.er. Again, in speaking of the isthmian canal, he aroused mirth by soying that one of the problems in con nection with the great engineeering feat would be to procure fifty-thou sand-dollar patriotic, ambitious men to work for a ten-thousand-dollar fee. WAR GAME STILL ON. Plllsbury Has Only Two More IVighta in Which to Make Landinft. Rockport, Mass., Aug. 23.—In the light of the knowledge gained in those hot, anxious days at Santiago four years ago. that readiness and watchfulness are half the battle, the officers and men of Admiral Higginson's home defense squadron are keeping as keen a look out for the appearance of Commander Pillsbury's supposedly hostile naval force as they did for Cervera In 1898. During the early part of last evening the conditions were Ideal for an at tempt by Pillsbury to carry out his part of the war problem. A thunderstorm, which came up about Rockport's supper time, left behind it a heavy pall of fog that enveloped the town shore and made it hard to distinguish large ob jects. Shortly after 9 o'clock the mist lifted, the moon and the stars came out and Pillsbury's best chanc-e was gone. He only has two more nights within which to attempt a landing. If he has not established a base ashore by noon on Monday he will lose the game. CABLE CAR GETS AWAY.:"' Gripmnn Is Killed anil Twenty Po# xennrers Injured. Kancns City, Aug. 23.

GATES -IS BITTEN HK AND HIS CROWD ft^HOLD OF -$1 ATTEMPT TO GAIN CONTROL OF COLORADO CONCHY IS k§5' 14 THE LAUGH CANNOT IS ON MR. GATES mc GET- CONTROL AND CAN NOT LET. GO HIS HOLD A INGS. New York,' Aug. 23. Three million four hundred thousand dollars was Wall street's estimate at noon yester day of the losses sustained by John W. Gates and his coterie up to that hour through their attempt to secure control of the Colorado Fuel and Iron company. When Gates plotted l(is big gamble his intention was to oust Chairman Osgood and the latter's board of di lectors at the: annual meeting on Aug. 20, take over control Of the property and turn it into the United States Steel corporation at a pretty advance over the price he and his associates had paid for control. All this was calculated to send the market skyrocketing, and there were millions in it for the Chicago crowd, who had loaded tip with 200,000 shares of the common stock. But this time the' hero of the cotn corner and the Louis ville & Nashville coup got hold of the "hot end.". The gentleman who passed it to them v. as Chairman Robert E. Osgood of the board of directors of the Colorado com pany. Hie had his board of directors pass a resolution declaring that all stock transfers would have to be regis tered under the laws of Colorado, also that they would have to keep a stock list for the registering of stock and of all instances where the stock was, put up for collateral. Bloclicd by an Injunction. As this had not and could not be done one of Mr. Osgood's kind friends se cured from a Colorado court an In junction deferring- the annual meeting until the law had been complied with. On Aug. 14, the date when the injunc tion. proceedings were inaugurated, Col orado Fuel and Iron was at 91. It broke one point and four days later, on the granting of the injunction, cage a slump of 5 points, A break of 5 more followed the passage of Aug 20 without an annual election. Of course every point dropped meant a loss of $200,000 to the Gates faction with its 200,000 shares. Then some one began turning the stock loose in Wall street and the pounding carried the stock down to 73 3-4, the lowest point touched yester day. Wall street is wondering whether the Gates crowd unloading in spite of their assertions that they will hold out and smash Osgood If-they have to hold out until Saratoga becomes a Sunday school resort. Wall street is enjoying the jok? on Mr. Gates, who, with all but 40,000 shares out of 240,000, cannot get control of the Colorado property and cannot let go without dropping mil lions.
