Lash- ee in another column, who is a can- ldate for re-election to the ollice f. f-heritf of Benton County, sub ct to the will . of the Democratic arty. It goes without saying that Mr. Lnshlee has fulfilled his prom ises to the people, and hiis made a rood and fearhss cuhcer. He has iceii prompt and accommodating in his business dealings with the tibhe, and has made a record of w hich he should be proud to ow n and which will stand the scrutiny of all critics. He is a sound Dem ocrat, tried and true, and has a host of friends who recognize his merits, and they are confidenc that it will take a hustler to lead him in the Democratic primaries to be held on Saturday, March 11, 1SJG. In another column of this issue of TllE ClUiONlCLE will be found the announcement of Mr. E. G.

His friends in t he county are legion, and it goes without saying that they are going to endorse his claims at the Dt.no- cratic primaries. J. L. Douglas and six other citi zens of the twelfth district, were arraigned before Justice Sam T. Presson Tuesday on the charge of assault and battery with intent to commit murder in the lirst degree, by shooting into the house of Mrs. Mortimer Sullivan. It seems that. Sullivan and another woman de parted for parts unknown sometime ago, since which time Mis. Sullivan has lived alone, except when neigh bors came in and more recently a hired man has been living on the place. Mrs. Sullivan claims that she has frequently been annoyed by men trying to frighten her at night, and that one night last week a number of men surrounded the house and tired -several shots into the house, and the above case is the outcome of warrants sworn out by Mrs. Sullivan. After a thorongh examination the defendants were discharged. The State was repre sented by J. G. Eobins, esq., and the defeuse by J. .A. Cleuient and J. M.
