VOLUME IV. NEWPORT, ARKANSAS. FRIDAY. JANUARY 27. 1905. NUMBER 233. (ENGLAND DEMANDS RUSSIAN DISCLAIMER. Czar’s Minister Evades English Minister, Alleging Charges Were Not Official—Massa cre’s Victims Buried. v/ St. Petersburg, Jan. 26.—Sir Charles Hardinge, British am * bassador to Russia, has called on 'IPtH^ign Minister Lamsdorff for r n explanation of the proclama tion posted in Moscow and other p> cities telling the people that An gle-Japanese influence is behind L the present uprising in Russia. I Though the placards were I posted by the authorities them I selves and printed in the Rusky ft Invalid, the army organ, Count ■ Lamsdorff replied that he did not b think the accusations have an ■ official organ. He promised to I institute an immediate investiga ■ tion. It is doubtful if England ■ will accept the one already given. B Capt. Grove, the British con ■ sul at, Moscow, met with a chal m lengexo fight when he called m Acting Chief of Police Roud s neff’s attention to the fact that I the proclamations were endan | gering the lives and property of § Englishmen in Russia. I , The leading victims of Sun | day’s massacre in St. Peters i burg were smuggled secretly in f to their graves during the mgnt, at the authorities’ order. It was planned to bury them publicly, but the officials feared a demon stration. &T .VTE/SIFTINGS. For libel suits, Perry county has an undisputabie leadership that is likely to give its people the reputatton of having long tongues. And what could be . worse to discourage immigration or better to promote emigration. Six suits have been filed by prominent people of Adona against their neighbors and fel low lodgemen in the bonds of W. 0. W. for damages aggregating $35,000. Now, if judgments are secured in the next term of court, when the cases will come up for trial, the cheapness of talk will become an expression that does not apply to Perry county. The charges made against and by their senatorial representative, A. W. Rison, al so promised to be aired in the it court. I Howard and Edwin Gould, grandsons of the famous Jay Gould, a prodigy in his time, but whose star has been eclipsed by I Pierpont Morgan and many oth \ ers in this latter day, are touring \Arkansas over some of the lines ia which they are interested. * They ride in a special of five coaches and don’t make very long stops, at least not in such > towns as Pine J31uff, where the ' people are clamoring for a new depot. Both are very young men, ' I though one is president and the other vice-president of the Cot as;'-ton Belt. The Republican state commit tee in refusing to endorse the claims of either contestant for the Texarkana postoffice and 1 leaving the matter to a party I primary of the patrons of the e; office thought to avoid the shoals | of party dissension, but the elec l tion held for that purpose is s | being contested and the whole Wt matter was again brought up to | the executive committee of the | state organization, which met in | I Little Rock Thursday night and | £ endorsed the claims of J. G. I I Biekley, present incumbent and I j nominee in the recent primary. ' Ben Foreman, who for the past year has been schooled in in surgent tactics, is not satisfied, however, that he was fairly beaten and proposes to carry his troubles to the ear of the presi dent. The burning of the Hoxie un ion station (sounds big enough) was not such a small affair after all, as the railroad officials say | that it has been one of the most costly ever suffered at a similar sized station, great damage hav ing heen done to the telegraph wires. The Iron Mountain and Western Union wires entered the building by way of a cable, and these were at once put out of business. A new cable was cut in at the cable pole to the north of the site of the depot build ing, run under the tracks of the Iron Mountain and Frisco and connected again south of the station. The instruments were arranged in the lunch room of John S. Gibson. It is said that this is one of the fastest pieces of repair work ever done in this section of the country. The Iron Mountain is setting in box cars to serve as a telegraph station. The proprie tor of the Boaz hotel kindly of fered the company the use of the rotunda of his building for the use of the passengers and as many rooms as would be neces sary to accommodate the differ ent officials there. FAUST INDICTED FOR PERJURY. Searcy, Jan. 26.—The grand jury has returned an indictment against Dr. John Faust, charg ing him with perjury in connec tion with the trial of John V. Roberts at Judsonia last Septem ber. Dr., Faust was the princi pal witness for the defense in that trial. Roberts was charged with violating the grave by par ticipating in the midnight remov al of the body of Ed Pitts from a grave. It will be remembered that the body of Pitts was subsequently palmed off and buried as that of Dr. R. G. Lightle, on whose life there was insurance amounting to $21,000. In the trial at Judsonia in a ! justice’s court Roberts pleaded | an alibi, Dr. Faust testifying in 1 substance that he and Roberts were together at Armstrong Springs the night Pitts’ grave was violated. A bench warrant has been ! served upon Dr. Faust and he has been granted bail in the sum of $500. NEW DRUG STORE. - I John T. Jacocks of Little Rock has recently opened a very nicely furnished and well stocked drug store in the E. L. Watson build ing on Front street and together with his family has made New-! port his home for the future. He is a very pleasant and clever gentleman and a progress ive merchant who believes in pleasing his trade and thus win ning their confidence and busi ness. He has associated with him Mr. S. R. Hudson, for many years a popular druggist of this city and a man of broad ac quaintance and fine reputation as a pharmacist. Both Messrs. Hudson and Jacocks are regis tered pharmacists, and all pre scriptions will have their careful attention. The ijew firm, we feel sure, will enjoy their part of the business of our growing city i and its fine* tributary territory. » PLAN PROPOSED TO HOLD COTTON. President of National Ginners’ Association Would Store Cot ton Till Market Reaches Ten Cents. Dallas, Jan. 26. — President Taylor of the National Ginners’ Association has the following plan to hold cotton: Every planter or holder of cot ton puts one-fourth of his hold ings in the hands of his banker to be held till September 15, but can be sold sooner in the event cotton goes up to 10 cents per pound. The banker is to issue a form of certificate in duplicate to the grower, one of which will be sent to the clearing house asso ciation at New Orleans or New York and when 750,000 bales have been deposited the plan to become effective, otherwise the cocton to be turned back to the grower. The planter is to deposit ware house receipts for the number of bales which he wished to be put up and if desired the banker to loan him as much as $25 per bale. The cotton is to be kept insured at the expense of the owner and he is also to pay in terest on money borrowed at the customary rates. Where there _ _1_J.1 A. A axe liu waiciiuuoco meean be held in cotton yard until April 1 without damage, after which time it can be stored at compress or sent to nearest port or inland market where they have facilities for taking care of the same. These certificates should be uniform and so worded that the cotton cannot be sold until the price agreed on is reached until after, say Sept. 15. By relieving the market of 1, 000,000 bales there will not be enough left to run the mills and leave a normal supply in the spinners’ hands, and at the hedging markets, like New Or leans, New York and Liverpool, where there should be at least 500,000 bales at all times to pre vent corners. Do this or some other better plan if it can be found, and the price of cotton will take care of itself if the growers will reduce acreage 25 per cent or more. DOCTOR COFFMAN WRITES EN ROUTE.
