All on^wlorv Under Compilation Win
t/Uptx'w Newport's Population to
mWwF Be Over five Thousand.
BBr The canvassers’ books :or the
Bf city directory, now being eom
W piled under the direction of Ma
or D. B. Castile and to be pub
lished by the Independent, show
J,604 names and there
ably 100 more to be add_d,m
districts that could not be reached
on account of the high water.
A total of 1700 names, means
a population for Newport of over
5000 figuring on the very con
servative basis of 3 people to'
every head of a family.
While the canvass shows a
large.number of unmarried males
and females, as well £s many
temporary residents and would
thus cut down the average per
cent, usually taken in estimating
population from directory sta
tistics, we find on the other
hand numerous entries of large
families especially among the -
negro population.
Newport thus shows an in
crease of about 70 per cent in the i
six years following 1890, when j
her population was but 2800, j
compared to 1571 in 1890. I
Shadowed the Sheriff.
A difficulty arose Tuesday os
tween Allen Morris and Sheriff
inn T T.fwan which came near
ending in a serious affair, fne
trouble started on the night of
the Democratic primary when
Morris “shadowed” Logan while,
on his way home. j
Morris claims that Logan had j
turned on the combination at the;
‘"'■'•'Vault where the Jonesboro town-j
ship ballot® were kept. Logan;
said he did it to keep Ferguson’s
friends from stealing the box as j
Logan carried the box by a h.m-;
drod majority over f erguson. i
Morris is a brother-in-law of,
Ferguson. He approached Logan!
Tuesday and said Logan had told j
a lie about him. This started a i
rough and tumble fight and in j
the fracus Logan pulled his pis-1
tol, but further trouble was pre-j
vented by County Judge Rains j
and Clerk Armstrong. —Jones-j

be Compelled to Serve Penitentiary
Sentence.
Little Rock, April 12. —William
Eppert, the self-confessed fire

number of incendiary blazes in

was sentenced to five and one
half years in the state peniten
tiary and two years in the fed

Gov. Davis tonight notified the
officers that he would issue a
oardon to Eppert in the state
;ases tomorrow morning and he
ivill then be required to serve
>nly the two years sentence in
:he federal reform school. Ep
pert was arraigned in the circuit
‘ourt today to Answer to two in*
lictments. One charged him
,vith burning a barn belonging
:o Judge R. J. Lea and the other
,vith burning a stable owned by
rheo. Treadway. Eppert plead
ed guilty to a charge of arson in
30th cases. Judge Winfield of
:he second division passed sen
:enee in the former case and
ixfjd his punishment at two
pears in the penitentiary. In
:he other case Judge Lea sen
-OTforI Fnnpvt to three and one
'ialf years in the penitentiary.
In the meantime the federal
grand jury returned an indict
ment against Eppert today,
charging him with petit larceny
in two counts, i he indictment
charged that he stole 40 cents at
one time and 20 cents at another
from Grover Bratton. The case
was in the federal court because
of the fact that the money was
stolen in the federal building,
over which the federal govern
ment has jurisdiction. Eppert

counts. Judge Trieber sen
tenced him to one year in the
federal reform school at W ash
ington, D. C., on each count.

crat. Hezekia Z. Hawkins,
whose home is near Vilonia, was
taken to Conway for examination
| and adjudged insane by the
| county court. Besides this in
firmity Mr. Hawkins is a deal
mute and is totally blind. An
attack of meningitis when he
was 7 years of age resulted in
the loss of his hearing and the
I sight of one eye. Last Friday
i while cutting sprouts on his field
i| he was struck in the eye having
the power of sight, putting out
that eye. The pain and inflam
mation from this was so great

he has since been raving. He
was taken back to his home
pending his admission to the
asylum, but physicians believe
that he is not likely to live long.

Little Rock, April 12- • There

democratic state convention

that three days will be consumed
in the meeting. There will be
at least two offices which must
be settled by the convention, the j
candidates and their standing!
being as follows:
For Agricultural Commissioner
—Guy B. Tucker, 208; John P.
Logan, 100; B. F. Witt, 96; Ran

There is more Catarrh in this!
section of the country than all j
other diseases put together, and
until tne last few years was sup-j
posed to be incurable. For a
great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease and
prescribed local remedies, and
i by co‘ stantly failing to cure J
with local treatment, pronounced ;
it incurable. Science has proven
catarrh to be a constitutional
.disease and therefore requires
i constitutional treatment. Hall’s
Catarrh Cure, manufactured by
F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo,
Ohio, is the only constitutional
cure on the market. It is taken
, internally in doses from 10 drops
' to a teaspoonful. It acts direct

faces of the system. They offer
