chinists called upon them at 9 o’clock,
General Foreman Mitchell and Fore

being also present. The strikers laid
their grievances before these gentle

ful tale of the ship, when, on May 29,
lying off Rio. when the entire crew

Captain Allen was taken aboard by a
physician, who died, while the re
mainder of the crew were taken to the
hospital ashore. On June 18, Albert
Anderson, 2t> years of age, died in

A “Cut and Dried" Ticket.
. In the I’. P. County Convention, held
, at the court house yesterday, some ac
! count of which we gave in yesterday's
; r’pile, together with the ticket nomi
| an amusing incident occurred,
wli h conclusively proved that it was
I a “cut and dried" affair throughout.
' Mr. W*. W. Carloss was Chairman and
I George Brackman Secretary of the
body. Only one man was placed in
nomination for each office, ami Chair
man Carloss, as is the custom, put the
question for ballot. When time came
for selecting a Circuit clerk,
lie hesitated, and Secretary Brackman
got up and said that as Mr.
I Carloss, their worthy chairman, “was
[ on the ticket" for clerk, he would put
question to vote—then somebody else
noting the secretary’s break, inter
rupted him, and placed Mr. Carloss’
name in nomination regularly.
This, taken in connection with
the fact of their closed
door meeting in the morning, and
that only one name was voted on for
each office, gives the “cut and dried”
work of the bosses away.
The people will not endure such
dark and tricky methods.
Shooting Affray.
Thiii morning about six o’clock M.
I’. Anderson aud Jack Edmunds,(latter
known as “One-armed Jack’’), met out
on State Line Avenue, near Sand Flat,
when Edmunds drew a pistol and shot
Anderson, the ball taking effect in the
face near the nose, coming out on the
opposite side of the head near the ear.
Anderson's wound is considered dan
gerous, but not necessarily fatal. Ed
munds gave himself up to officers, and
is now in the Miller county jail.
It will be remembered that about
six weeks ago the same parties had a
difficulty over a family affair, and
Anderson then shot Edmunds with a
shotgun loaded with bird shot, the
load taking effect in his face. Ed
munds said at. tha* time, we learn,
that he would “get even" with his
antagonist, and it seems that he has
carried out the threat, he having re
covered, aud first opportunity present
ing itself this morning, as shown
above.

The State Debt Reduced.
Since Woodruff’s biennial report as
State Treasurer was filed October 1,
1890, Treasurer Morrow has redeem
ed of the outstanding 6 per cent
funded bonds and coupons of 1869-70,
$398,120. This, of course, applies to

There are a couple of Turkish wo

are of no service and are simply va

A Horrible Murder.
An old man, named Bunn, while
fishing' in Backman's creek, about
five miles from the T. ('. junction, on
Tuesday last, discovered the trunk of
a negro woman, with both legs and
■the head missing, sewed in a sack aud
partially sunk in the water. The old
man made further search and succeed
ed in finding the missing limbs a little
further down the stream, whiel like
the trunk, were sewed in a sack and
sunk in the, creek. The head how
ever. though diligent search has been
made, hud not been found up to Inst
night. Mr. Bunn gave the alarm
promptly, and in a short while
the remains had been fully
identified, by scars upon them,
as those of Mary Keeling, who
had been missing from her home
since Saturday last. It appears that
of late the deceased and her husband
George Keeling, who lived on a small
farm about a mile from where the
body was found, had not lived agreea
bly together. George bad grown ex
ceedingly jealous of attentions his
wife was receiving from another ne
gro, named Harry Tucker, and the
pair had, of late, had frequent quar
rels. On Saturday the woman left
home saying she was going to Texar
kana and would not live again with
her husband. After she had gone,
Keeling followed and overtaking her
at a neighbor’s a mile away, forced
her to return with him to his home.
This was the last seen of her alive.
That night at about 10 o’clock, a
shot was heard in the vicinity of Keel
ing's house, and later hi the night, he
went to the house of a neighbor and
stated that his wife had rim away and
left him. He was arrested at the junc
tion yesterday and will have a prelim
inarp trial at the junction to-day. The
clrcumstatial evidence again! the pris
oner is said to De very strong, but the
full extent of it was not learned. Har
ry Tucker, the woman’s supposed lov
er, and a brother of Keeling, are also
under arrest, supposed to know more
about the murder than they dare to di
vulge. So far as we could learn no
effort has yet been made to procure a
statement from the alleged murderer.
It is thought Keeling killed his wife
by shooting her and afterwards chop
ped her in pieces with an axe or hatch
et.'—lnter-State News.
The negro Keeling was not brought
to the city, as was expected, and we
learnjjhis committment trial is being
held this afternoon, at the T.-C. Junc
tion. YYe understand t hat there is no
evidence against Hurry Tucker, the ne
gro woman’s lover, who was also ar
rested, and that he will likely be re
leased.
Col. Carloss is not unknown to the
people us an office seeker, having been
in the field for some time. He is a
good man, but will hardly fill the
Clerk’s place.
