FOURTH OF JULY ANNUAL CELEBRATION. Visitors in the City From Vari ous Districts and Near by Points. Wr-t cf SssGsssilSons' Foundry. UNION CITY TEKN. The Fourth of July was celebrated in Union City on Saturday, July 3. Crowds began to gather early in the morning, and by 9 o'clock the streets were fairly well filled. I'eople were drawn to the City Park first to hear the band concert, and then to First street to see the athletic events. The 100-yard foot race was won by Ed. Harpolc, who captured the $2.50 cash premium. The shoe race was won by Gallon Cal lihan, the .three-legged race by Warren Murphy, and the fat men's race by Josh Adams. The premiums were re spectively a pair of $3 shoes, $2 in cash and a fine straw hat. Promptly at 10:30 the parade began to move, starting at the Training School on First street Crossing the N. C. & St. L. Railroad tracks the baud was in full march swing, and then appeared some of the handsomest decorated ve hides ever seen on the streets of Union City. After the band came the U. C. Veterans and ladies mounted and in uniform. The next was a decorated lloat representing the Union City Pub' lie School. Seated and standing on the float were a number of well dressed young ladies. The young ladies on horseback were beautiful in their uni forms and decorations. The broom drill girls wore black skirts and white waists and appeared next in line of pa rade, on a float prettily decorated. The first decorated vehicle was driven by Mrs. Irene Dahnke, accompanied by Mrs. Kate Bell. This was decorated in white and indeed it was a beauty. The work was a combination of skill and taste, and the result was a great success. This was the first prize winner. The decorations were by Mrs. Penick. The next was a very beautiftl vehicle decorated in red, driven by Miss Leone Webster. The team was double and the horses wore large red plumes. The turnout was one of the most attractive on the ground. The work on this ve hicle was also exquisitely wrought. The next was a decorated vehicle driven by Misses Irene Davie and Floy Coble. It was in a combination of colors and equal in beauty to its competitors. The vehicle decorated in yellow was the winner of second premium. This was driven by Miss Inez Dahnke. It varied from the others in point of color and was also attractive. D. P. Caldwell drove a vehicle dressed in red, white and blue, which was also very tine. Then came another pretty vehicle in pink and white, driven by Miss Dahnke. The John B. Gordon Chapter was next in order with the prize float. .This float was driven by Uncle Jerry Cloar. In the center of the float Mrs. Green -was operating an old-time spinning wheel. She was dressed in homespun, and carried a motto "Working for the boys that wear the grey." Several members of the chapter were seated on this float, and it was a credit to the good taste and en thusiasm of the ladies. Misses Sallie Chambers and Kate Flack were seen next in a vehicle decorated in red and white, last but not least in the beauty of its design and effect. ' A trade float came next, a double seated vehicle, decorated and trimmed just as the other vehicles were, but varying in purpose by the simple use of the swastica, the emblem used by Hardy, Corum & Jackson for a busi ness sign. This vehicle was decorated by Mr. Corum, and it was attractive every way, taking first prize for trade floats. The Dahnke-Walker Milling Co. and the Union City Ice & Coal Co. had a combination trade float, a very large one and carrying a very extensive display of Jersey Cream Flour. Thej float was covered with an arched roof of straw and very ingeniously designed. This was the winner of second premi um. A decorated float for Bransford & Andrews was next in order, driven by Miss Ada Moffett and Miss Moss, fol lowed by a trade float for the Ligon Furniture Co., laden with a display of mahogany furniture. The judges were Mrs. W. W. Pierce. Trimble, Tenn.; B. H. Johnson, Pecos City, Texas, and Wade Wiley, Union City, Tenn. The parade reached the fair grounds and dispersed for dinner. After din ner W. R. Andrews conducted the broom drill, with about twenty young ladies in white and black. This drill is the same as one conducted by Mr. An drews in Union City more than twenty years ago. The young ladies then are the mothers of some of those who were in'the drill Saturday. It was an inter esting sight, and it was a fine drill, a rythm of motion and measure, forms and faces fair. The first speed ring event was a run ning race won by Clyto Lannom, with second money to Thelbert Rogers. The trotting race resulted in first money to T. R. Reynolds, second to Frank Chambers, and third to Jim Fate Glover. The pacing race gave first money to Geo. Cunningham, second to Box and third to Mansfield. A second running race was pulled off, resulting a second time winning by Clyto Lannom, second, Vaughn Davis. At 4 o'clock the game of baseball was called. The McTyeire team, of MKenzie, opposed the home team, buA was- defeated by a score of 6 to 4. They started very unlikely. Several very bad errors were docketed to the gardeners in the home team. Allen's pitching was all right, but after the shower both teams got to work in ear nest, and the rest of the game was good. Premiums for best couples on horse back were awarded first, to Miss Nina Mai Wheeler and D. A. George, Jr. ; second, to Miss Mary Dahnke and Jack Brackin. In character costume, the boys who won premiums were Henry and Fred Dahnke; best character costume worn by girl, was by Miss Thelma Brummell. The festivities closed Saturday even ing with probably the best display of fireworks ever seen in Union City. The band concert was also a special event. Jubilee Services. The Gospel Temperance Jubilee services held at the First Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and in which all the local pastors took part, was largely attended and a complete success. Short crisp and interesting addresses were made by J. L. Fry, Walter Reynolds, Mrs. W. L. White and F. M. McRee. An interesting digression from the regular programme was the presentation of an elegant gold watch by the W. C. T. U. and others to Senator McRee, through Judge Swiggart, their spokes man. In a felicitious and complimen tary way Mr. Swiggart addressed the audience and Mr. McRee for a few minutes. The Latest Clubbing Kates.

Dickson's Dreadful Drop During Double-Decker. Contest in No. 2 in the bunch plucked for Dickson was opened up by Connors. A narrowly averted farce was the re sult. The visitors swooned stone dead at the first pop; and had it not been for the intervention of the higher elements the affair would have gone as rotten as old saw-dust. The lad with the smooth system of arm-spinning started in with such commanding zeal to gob ble up the foe that the chalk stated 6 to 0 before the first inning was scarcely over. Then the cloud-burst descended and the fans flocked to shelter, Mr. Ump hollered quits and a double-decker was announced for the following even ing. The lid was taken off No. 1 by 7?igue. For some unknown reason a disastrous effect succeded and the boy with the neat knack was called forward to pull the clan out of the mire. The change cast an awful slump over the opposing force. The result was a steady loss for them and before the ninth came around all the favor of the 11 and 7 score was with the locals. Pigue had gotten his bearings mean while and appeared in better form for the next round. His old established work took a fresh hold; and the clan, of course, raked in another one. The chalked marks stood 12 to 6. The collision of the 57 variety aggre gation and the Blue Sox bids well to be called tolerable in all but one spot The Dickson crew was weak as can be easily deducted from the last two con tests they had here, and we surmise that they were just as weak from the be ginning as they were in these two con tests. Now the unknown quanity is, how did they ever get ahead of the clan in that first bout at Sunny Dell? The answer is hard to get at when you stop and think, considering in the in terim the past work of the aggregation. Without any question that first game should have been carried off. The action on both decks was competent and capable of raising interest, but ac cording to observation it should have gone further. The concluding count in Saturday's big battle with McKenzie was 6 to 4 with the favor for the clan. With Al lan at the wheel and Wight in smooth, elastic working order the aggregation clapped the gradual clamp down upon the enemy and pulled them out the other end of the sausage grinder in an extremely minus condition considering the material they rushed down and put into the limelight. The visiting crew began the set-to in a very rushing and enthusiastic manner, and local support suffered a slump when they sent -three runners over the plate and settled back on their haunches preparatory to taking another bite out of the clan's rep. But just then Allan put on steam and began to smoke. The visitors were the first to start the fanning. Tigue, a brand-new clansman, got to first and prepared to give a free exhibition of his base-running. He got around safe and the winning vein was struck. From there to the eighth the score was neck and neck. The locals came to bat for the ninth and got two men on base when Connors came to bat with two lost. The first one flew on a level to a safe location between second and center field, and the runs counted, in as much as Tigue was on first when the hit was made. Candidate for Governor.

Harelson, 29 years old, a barber, 121 Mississippi avenue, was shot three times and almost instantly killed in his place of business yesterday noon by his negro porter, "George Henry Nightin ealo. 21 vears old, 6(55 McKinley street. The shooting was the tragic sequel to a controversy between Harelson and the negro, which began Saturday night, when the negro was upbraided by his employer for neglecting his work. There were no eye witnesses to the tragedy. Mrs. Harelson, living in the rear of her husband's place of business, heard the succession of shots and reach ed her husband's side before he died, and in time to see the negro with pistol in hand rush from the front door. Soon after the shooting Nightingale was arrested at his dwelling on McKin- lev street by Patrolman Jack Broens of the Webster avenue police station squad, and Deputy Sheriffs Martin and Jacobi of Justice William Creagan's court. The negro was bleeding pro fusely from a severe scalp wound which he claims he received during a desper ate struggle with Harelson before he fired the shots in self-defense. QUARREL FRECEDED TRAGEDY. For the past two months Nightingale has been employed as a clothes presser and porter in the Harelson barber shop on Mississippi avenue, and frequently his employer reprimanded him for do ing his work in an unsatisfactory man ner. Before closing his shop Saturday night, Harelson, the police say, ordered the negro to clean and press his trous ers. The negro refused and a heated controversy ensued. Harelson was shaving himself vester' day morning, when Nightingale sann- tered into the shop and renewed he difficulty of the night before. The negro claims Harelson went into his living apartments in the rear of his establish ment and returned with a 41-caliber Colt's pistol. With the butt of the weapon, Nightingale says, Harelson beat him, not stopping until the heavy pistol accidentally ' fell from his hand. The negro maintains he grabbed for the pistol as did Harelson, and in order to keep his employer from shooting him, turned the weapon on Harelson and fired three shots at him. Three bul lets took effect in the unfortunate man's body. Running into the room, Mrs. Harel son found her husband writhing upon; the floor. ,r "Honey, I'm dying," gasped the wounded man. The nigger got me," In a frantic effort to detain Nightin-: gale, who stood near the body of his victim, Mrs. Harelson,, unmindful of her own danger, attempted to disarm; the negro." Nightingale, however, ei fected his temporary escape, going di- rectly to his home, where he was after ward arrested. ' Paul Green, 18 years old, 680 Lau derdale street, followed the negro to his home and assisted the officers in locat ing him. B. L. Norwood and C. A. Lund, 725 Mississippi avenue, at a dis tance, heard the men quarreling and the sucession of shots. They reached the scene of the murder before the ar rival of Capt. John M. Couch and offi cers from police headquarters. The body of Harelson was prepared for burial by McDowell & Monteverde, undertakers, and shipped to Union City, Tenn., for burial. The unfortunate man is survived by his wife and Edward Harelson, 18 months old, together with two brothers and a sister J. W. Harelson, 987 Bar ton avenue; E. G. Harelson, Donovan, Mo., and Mrs. Julia Worley, Harviel,. Missouri. Harelson came to Memphis two years ago from Union City, and for a time operated a barber shop oa Calhoun avenue. His slayer is a son of Taylor Nightingale, a negro preacher. Com mercial Appeal. . 1 . " . ' Use Jersey Cream Flour. None better.
