Tho Fire Last Night.
Last night about 11 o'clock an alarm
of lire was given, by the blowing of
whistles etc., and quite a crowd re
sponded to the call. It was found
that the drying house of the Reeve
FuruitureT’actory was on fire. The
factory is beyond the fire limits, but
the boys handled buckets so skillfully
as to prevent a spread of the fire, so
that it did not communicate with the
main building or factory proper.
A reporter of the Democrat visit
ed the factory, and ascertained that
Hie loss is about SI2OO, with insurance
of S2OO on the dry house. Loss will
really amount to much more than the
sum named, on account of the delay it
engenders. The company expected to
begin running to-day, and had in an
order for a car loud of furniture, to be
shipped by September Ist. it is sup
posed fire was caused from over-tiring,
as there was two layers of brick be
tween the tire and the lumber burned
in drying house.
CAUGHT AGAIN.
Republican and People’s Party
Scheme Exposed.
Special to The Arkansas Gazette.
Nashville, Ark.. August 10.—
Tlie following letter lias been received
by John T. Dillard,of Mineral Springs
who is one of the best Democrat in
Howard County:
Little Kock. Ark., August 2, 189'2.
—Having seen that you were the de
legate of your party to the. Omaha
Convention, I didn’t know of a gentle
man in your county to whom I could
more safely write this confidents!
note. The fight is on now In earnest,
and if your People’s party leaders
will carry out your part of the pro
gramme, the grand old Repub
lican parly will he successful in this
campaign, and we will have AVhipple
for the next governor of Arkansas.
Don't organize the negroes into Peo
ples party clubs, as we learn that some
of the members of your party have
been endeavoring to do, but work all
the Democrats that you can into your
party. Leave the negroes to vote the
Republican ticket, for State officers, of
course, We don't care to meddle
witli your county affairs, and hope
you may be successful in electing a
Representative, for your man will co
operate with ours in the Legislature.
AVe think your man, Bush, will suit us
for Congress. AVe will quite likely not
run a Republican for Congress if your
people can carry out their part of the
contract to help us elect our State
ticket. You see, we must break
the Solid South at all hazards. I have
been getting the boys organized in
Georgia, but have more hopes of car
rying Arkansas than any other
Southern State. I leave lu re to-night
for Colorado, but will be in California
at work when your State election
comes off. Keep the boys in the mid
dle of the road until the sth ot Sep
tember, and we will fulfill all our
pledges to your leaders. Sincerely
yours, D. L. AVempfer.
AVho Wempfer is, or whether this
letter is authorized, the people here do
not know. He seems from the letter
to be a kind of National organizer and
zealous Republican worker.
Mr. Dillard was appointed a dele
gate to the Omaha Convention, but
did not go nor accept the appoint
ment.
Club Meeting.
The Cleveland and Thurman Dem
ocratic Club met last evening, at the
city hall, elected officers, and trans
acted some important business. In
another place we publish full proceed
ings of the meeting. Meeting was
well attended, and considerable enthu
siasm manifested. Prof. G. A.
Hays having served as President
of tho club for four years, declined a
re-election. In vacating the chair
he made a splendid talk, giving in de
tail a history of the club and the good
work done by it heretofore, ami earn
estly urged zealous work in the pres
ent campaign. A resolution of thanks
was by unanimous vote, tendered this
faithful retiring officer.
As will be seen from the proceedings,
club made suitable arrangements for
tlie reception of Col. Fishback; club,
accompanied by band, will meet him,
at the train to-night, aud escort him
to the hotel, and to-morrow form in
procession and march Io Park Byrne,
• the place of speaking.
Hour of speaking, 10 o'clock, is ear
ly. and it will require energetic action
and system to make a good showing
of tlie procession, so we trust every
Democrat will turn out. Prof. Hays,
marshal of the day, will arrange de
tails, and ho is the right man in the
right place.
Grand Democratic rally and parade
to-morrow morning—see dodgers,
Ciimden got up a big crowd of over
6,000, now let Texarkana come to tho
front with 10,000 in procession.

KING’S NECK SAVED.
SENTENCE COMMUTED TO LIFE
IMPRISONMENT
In the Penitentiary .-Much Excite
ment Over it in Memphis, and
Mob Law Threatened.
11. Clay King, of Memphis, who shot
down in cold blood David 11. Poston,
some time since, and who was con
victed of murder in the first degree
and sentenced to be hung on the 12th
inst., has been saved from the gallows,
Gqv. Buchanan having commuted the
sentence to life imprisonment in the
penitentiary.
Yesterday’s Memphis papers were
very bitter in denouncing the Gov
ernor’s action. Their utterances, to
gether with the already embittered
public feeling against King, caused
much excitement, and a mass meeting
was arranged for last night, at which
Gov. Buchanan was to have been
hung in effigy. It was given out that
the jail would lie attacked and the no
torious prisoner lynched.
JUDGE DUBOSE HEMOVKS KING.
In view of tlie threats current
against King's life, and tho expected
mob law, Judge J. J. Dußose issued
an order as follows:
• It appeared to the court that there
is non undue excitement in (ho public
mind because of tlie commutation of
the sentence of 11. C. King, who was
by the Supreme Court sentenced to
hang on the 12th day of August, 189'2,
mid it further appearing that because
of threatening mob violence, It is not
safe to longer keep said King in tho
county jail of Shelby County, it is
therefore ordered by tlie court that
the Sheriff of Shelby County, without
delay, take, said King and deliver
him to the keeper of tlie, Penitentiary
at Nashville, in pursuance of the order
as made by the Governor, commuting
his sentence to life imprisonment in
the Penitentiary of the State.
J. J. Dußose.
ON HIS WAY TO NASHVILLE.
Sheriff’McLendon took Col. 11. Clay
King from the Jail late yesterday
evening and out of the city on the
Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad en
route to Nashville. Tlie Sheriff is
one-legged aud unaccompanied.
King’s son went with tlie party and
there were some fears of an attempted
escape. Also fears were entertained
that friends of Poston would inter
cept and mob King.
'Die whole country was aroused
over the commutation of King’s sen
tence and telegrams protesting
against it poured into Memphis from
many portions of Mississippi. Tennes
see and Arkansas.
KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS.
Preparations at Kansas City for the
Grand Encampment.
Kansas City, August 10.—Pre
parations for the Pythian encampment
which opens here August 22, are pro
gressing rapidly and everything will
be ready by the time the Knights
begin arriving. The utmost exer
tions are being made by various com
mittees to insure the comfort of tlie
visitors. A committee lias been appoin
ted to take charge of the baggage
of the visitors and distribute it to tlie
lodgings assigned to each. 'Die list of
places were taken to-night and the
committee lias already enough accom
modation for an enormous crowd.
Merchants have promised to devote
space in stores for information bu
reaus and none of the visitors need
have fear of getting lost. All the
cots that arc in use in Denver have
been contracted for, and with tho
stock on hand every one will at least
have a bed to sleep on aud a roof to
cover liis head.
Hard at Work.
Messrs. AY. 11. Arnold and J. 1).
Sanderson, respectively Chairman and
Secretary of the Democratic County
Central Committee, have gone to
work In earliest for the success of tho
county ticket. AYe commend their
energetic work, and earnestly insist
(hat nil Democrats, both in Texarkana
and in the county, assist them iu every
possible way. It will require harmoni
ous, zealous ami effective work towin
in tho coming election. The enemy
is pushing the campaign and tlie
Democrats will have to meet nil their
schemes and tricks.
Let every Democratic club in the
county get down to work iu earueat;
increase the membership and route
the attacks of tlie opposition—let no
inroads or encroachments be made in
our ranks, but rather gather in re
cruits from them.
No Democrat can afford Io lie u
laggard now. Fall In line with tho
proeesaion to-morrow-
