Night Eiders Destroy Large Tobacco
Princeton, Ky., Dec. 3. At 1
o'clock Saturday morning' a band
of night riders numbering' 200 and
300 men, rode into town and burned
the tobacco etemmerieR ot JohnOrr
and J. A. Stenger. The loss is eeti
mated at $150,000. TJiree hundred
pounds of tobacco were destroyed.
Orr is the agent of the Imperial
Tobacco Company, and Stenger is
agent fof Gallagher, the Irish to
bacco king. . Both are said to be
allies of the American Tobacco
Company, against which the dark
tobacca growers of Kentucky are
alleged to have been waging1 war.
At Orr's factory the torch was ap
plied, but at Stenger's the building
was blown up with dynamite and
the ruitis fired. The marauders
worked the utmost system, all wore
black masks and white handker
chiefs pinned to the left shoulder
to identify each other in the dark.
Immediately on their arrival they
took possession of the telegraph
office and the telephone exchange.
Having cut off all communication
with the outside they took posses
sion of the police station and held
the town marshal and night police
man in custody until they left town.
, They tQpk charge of the water
works, placing guards over the
pumping station, so that no effort
could be made to put out the fire.
All this was done before the citi
zens were aware that the town had
been invaded. When these precau
tions bad been taken,, the invaders
rode through the streets, shooting
out the windows of the postoffice
on the way.
A few weeks ago the tobacco
barns at Fredonia, Kuttawa and
Eddyville, in Lyon County, were
It is believed here that the raid
is part of the fight of the tobacco
growers on the American Tobacco
Company, but it is not known that
any person connected with the Dark
Tobacco Growers' Association was
in the crowd that made the raid.
Golden Wedding.
Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Stephens on
last Tuesday celebrated their gol
den wedding, 50 years of married
life and both ot them happy, con
tented and comparatively heathly,
Mrs. S. particularly so. Their
children and grandchildren and a
few other relatives attended the
dining. Their is no finer old pair
than Uncle Jerry and bis aimable
companion, their tives have been
successful in the highest degree.for
they have given the world a large

Postmaster Taylor is in receipt
of a letter from Congressman
BrowDlow as follows:
Dear Taylor: Your favor at hand.
The free city delivery will be put In

Ia addition to this Saturday's
Nashville Banner contained the
"The Postmaster General to-day or
dered the establishment of a city de
livery at Union City, Tenn , on Feb
1, 1907, with three letter carriers, one
substitute carrier and twenty-six
street letter boxes."
From this it will be seen that
Union City is listed for city mail
delivery by the Postoffice Depart
ment and that it will be operative
on the 1st day of February, 1907.
Our Postmaster, G. T. Taylor,
sa3Ts that the cause of the hitch,
which has held up the order for
some time, was a shortage of $72
in the amount of yearly revenue
required in order to obtain city
delivery, and that the order came
in response to a private letter
written by him to Mr. Brownlow.

A fact in connection with the
Memphis Conference, which re
fleets great honor upon Lauder
dale County, is that two of the
leading divines in this large body
of talented men are products of
our home county. We refer to
Revs. H. B. Johnston and W. D.
Jenkins,"both of whom have occu
pied some of the most prominent
stations in the, bounds of the con
ference. .
Rev. W. D. Jenkins, L. L. D.,
was born ' in Lauderdale County
and grew up on a farm near Rip
ley. During his boyhood days' he
attended school in the rural dis
tricts, such as they had at that
time, and later on was a student
under Capt. H. T. Hanks, and af
terwards for three years attended
McTyre Institute and finished his
course at the famous Vanderbilt
University. His first, charge was
Alamo and Bells. In 1882 he was
married to Miss Mollie Butler, of
Bells. 1883 . was spent on a farm
near Uipley as junior preacher on
the Ripley circuit. For a number
of years he served the charges at
Brownsville, Denmark, Milan,
Buntyn, and for four years each
was presiding elder of the Union
City and Brownsville districts. He
is now stationed at Covington. He
is .deeply pious, and as a man and
minister of brilliant parts his equal
is rarely met with. His labors
have been eminently blessed by the
Master wherever he has preached,
and the rich harvest of souls he has
gathered for the Lord's garner is
the best proof of his faithfulness.
Dr. Jenkins is mighty in the scrip
tures, a scholarly and interesting
speaker, and makes an impression
for great and lasting good wherev
er he goes; " k
Rav. II. Bascomb Johnston was
born July 6, 1860; is a son of Rev.
George andEIizabethiJohhston;
was educated at Ripley ,MclCenzie,
Culleoka and Vanderbilt. He join
ed the conference in the year 1884,
and, has filled pulpits in some of
the leading, towns and cities in the
western sections " of the States of
Tennessee and Kentucky, conspic
ious among them being Memphis,
Jackson, Union City, Brownsville,
Paducah and Fulton, Ky. He was
station preacher the full limit, four
years, in almost all the above
named cities. He ' was presiding
elder for a term of years in the
Paducah district. The Docor has
accomplished and is accomplishing
great good for the cause of the
Master. He is great advocate of
missions, temperance and educa
tion. Hei is courageous and posi
tive in his declarations of what he
conceives to be the truth, ready to
"beard the lion in his den or the
Douglas in his halls," H3 is one
of the leading men of the Metho
dist Chuccb, and will doubtless
make a lasting mark. Lauderdale
