The Minstrel Misses.
The lady minstrels took tins city by
storm. As early .as 7:15 there was
crowd in front of the Cent theater's box
office big enough to half fill the house,
and it Was so large by the time tin
doors opened that every seat was taken,
the back part of the house jammed up
to the entrance and the overflow had
taken to the benches outside to wait for
the second show before even the cur
tain had gone up.
Taken an a whole the performance
was the neatest and niftiest show pre
sented in Meridian since the girlie min
strels were here last, and on every side,
as the audience filed out, was heard tin
comment that the show was even better
than last year. Individually there is
much that can be paid, as every one of
the girls could rank tip singly with the
best of the vaudeville performers that
have appeared here this season.
"Dreamland" has been sung here
many times, but it remained for Miss
Mayme to sing it last night with the
genuine Broadway touch. A treinendu-
ous hit was scored with the opeutng
number of the olio in which Miss. Etta
Rpberts sang hi slumber song, assisted
by the entire company on a darkened
stage, the girls wearing nighties and
There were five different opinions as
to who was the "particular hit" of the
show, Popular vote named Miss Rob
berts as she bowed acknowledgment to
the third encore, but this was bcJore
Miss Bueher gave her imitation of Anna
Held. Then the audience decided
that Miss Mayme was "it," and that
opinion lasted until the Drisdall sisters
came out in their singing, laughing,
dancing and joke skit, vflfich drove the
house wild and received four encores.
This appeaaed to settle the question, but
Miss Isabella appeared in her character
of the little Italian kid, and those who
had gone before .became for the mo
ment a mere memory. The audience
seemed determined not to let her leave
the stage nt all. Meridian Star, Sept.

Is Shot By Arthur Sweeny in Paris
ArthurSweeny, a bricklayer, 30 years
old, shot and killed J. R. Blaney, a
printer, in the poolroom operated by V.
l Valentine at 7 oYlcx'k last Thursday
evening, following an alleged slighting
remark made by Blaney about Sweeny's
sister. Sweeny gave himself up to the
authorities immediately after the kill
ing. The two men met that afternoon, ac
cording to stories told by friends of both
parties, and seemed to be drinking. A
slighting remark by Blaney is said to
have led to sharp words, but friends in
terfered and the men were separated.
Later in the evening, however, they met
in the poolroom. Sweeny is said to
have renewed the quarrel, whereupon
Blaney advanced upon him with a bil
liard cue, according to the account told
by bystanders. Just as the men were
about to grapple, Sweeny drew a revol
ver and tired three times. At the, first
shot Blaney fell at his assailant's feet
and was dead before aid came.
Blaney was a member of the Typo
graphical Union at Chicago and has a
wife and child in this city. Sweeny is
president of the Paris Bricklayers'
The above account of an awful affair
in which a Union City man lost his life,
was sent out from Paris last Thursday
night to the State press, being printed
in Memphis and Nashville papers.
The remains of the unfortunate young
man arrived in this city Friday at noon,
accompanied by Mr. Spieer, a citizen of
Paris, the undertaker who had the re
mains in charge at Paris. Reports by
Mr. Spieer do not agree with the above.
He says Blaney had been engaged dur
ing the day assisting a local preacher
secure advertising matter fur a church
journar. At about 6 o'clock the two
men, Blaney and Sweeny, were seen
standing on the street talking. Two
young ladies walked by, and Blaney
said: "Hello, there goes an old sweet- i
heart." Sweeny, who had been drink
ing, seemed to think the words 'improp
er and oegau to abuse his companion.
At this time a gentleman, a bystander,
interferred said he had heard the re
mark, that it meant nothing, as Blaney
had once lived in Paris, and there was
nothing to be mail about, and succeeded
in separating the men and started them
in opposite directions, thought that was
the end of the trouble and was very
much surprised half an hour later to
hear of Blaney 's death.
At 7 o'clock Sweeny walked into the
poolroom where the other man was en
gaged in, a social game, renewed the
quarrel and killed his man.
Citizens of Paris within a short time
contributed a neat sunt to help defray
The remains were taken to his home
on Jlarnson street, where they were
kept until Sunday afternoon, awaiting
the arrival of the young man's father,
J. 0. Blaney, of Ironspot, Ohio.
The funeral service was held at the
home at 3 o'clock, conducted by Rev.
Stuart, pastor of the First Christian
Church, burial at East View Cemetery,
attended by a large crowd of friends
Mr. and Mrs. Blaney came to Union
City last April from Ripley, Tenn., and
Mr. Blaney hail been employed at
Hurt's job office. Since they have
been here they have made many per
sonal friends who regretted his untime
ly taking away.

Blaney and her three-months old babe

He was on his way from Atlanta to
Hot Springs, Ark., and he made more
speeches than on any other day of his
present trip or on any day of his recent
Western trip. The train made fifty
stops during the day, and there weij
such crowds on hand everywhere that
Col. Roosevelt had at least to go out to
the rear platform and speak a few sen
tences at almost every station.
The colonel's throat, which has not
been in good condition since the Sara
toga convention, stood the strain well,
and he is inclined to believe now that
talking agrees with it. .
Col. Roosevelt was not talking poli
tics today. He was urged to nmplify
that part of his speech in Atlanta 1,1st
night which referred to the tariff and
the plank of the New York State Repub
lican platform which deals with the
tariff, but would not do so.
"I have nothing to add to what I
said last night," Col. Roosevelt said,
"except what in my speeches at Sarato
ga and Syracuse I said about the tariff
and the administration is exactly what
I said in Sioux City, la., Sioux Falls,
N. 1)., Cincinnati and elsewhere."
The Roosevelt train traveled leisurely
through parts, of Georgia, Alabama,
Mississippi and Tennessee Sunday, and
the engineer stopped wherever there was
a station. The people swarmed over
the tracks and crowded around the end
of tle train in struggling masses about

Knoxville, Tenn., Oct. 6. President
W. W, Finley, of the Southern Railway
Company, delivered an address here to-
lay before the Southern Appalachian
Good Roads Congress, in which he
made an earnest plea fur the construc
tion of an improved system of highways
throughout tho Southeastern State
stressing the importance of wagon roads
as a feature of transportation. He de
clared that it is the farmer who is most
vitally interested in the improvement of
the county roads, but that all are inter
ested in the welfare of the farmer and
in making conditions' in the country so
attractive as to turn the drift of the
population back from the city to the

Mr. Finley in the lino of having im
