IL JN-UP-DAY
|
Today, May 10th, has been designated as clean
up-day for Prescott. This order was made by the Board
of Health and a Proclamation issued by the Mayor, call
ing attention to the fact and urging every one in this
town to clean up their premises.
It is to be hoped that all will appreciate the necessity
of having a clean town and lend their assistance and
money to help. You are always ready to contribute to
any enterprise that you think will help your town from a
financial standpoint, which is right, but what could you

Prescott, the cleanest town on the road.
The committee will have wagons to haul all filth and
trash off that you rake up, so get busy and lets all do our
i part.
KING EDWARD VII OF
ENGLAND IS DEAD
Succession of Prince of Wales

and He Will Be Pro- 1
claimed King Today

London.May 7.—Edward VII.,
king of the United Kingdom and
all of the British dominions be
yond the seas, Great Britain and
Ireland, and emperor of India,
died at 11:45 o’clock last night,
after an illness of less than a
week.
Queen Alexandria, the prince
of Whales, who succeeds to the
throne, the princess of Whales,
the princess royal, the Duchess
of Fife, Princess Victoria and
Princess Louise and the duchess
of Argyll were present when the
king died.
The prince of Wales succeeded
to the crown immediately, ac
cording to the laws of the king
dom without official ceremony.
His first official act was to send
to the lord mayor the announce
ment of his father’s death, in
pursuance of custom.
The intelligence that the end
I of King Edward’s reign had
come was not a surprise at the
last. The people had been ex
pecting it any hour since the
evening’s bulletin was posted at
Buckingham palace and flashed
throughout the kingdom. The
capital received it with great ex
citement, but sadly, for the king
with his own people was unques-1
tionably one of the most popular,
rulers in the world.

HARDING HANGED
FOR MURDER
Former Wealthy Planter
Executed at Wynne To
day. Had Slain His
Attorney.
Wynne, May 6. — (Special.)
Henry Harding was hanged
here at 12: 20 p. m. today, and
the body was cut down ten min
utes later. The remains will be
shipped to Memphis for interment
in Calvary cemetery.
Harding died game as a pea
cock. He made a speech at the
court house before beginning the
march to the gallows. He de
clared that Patterson. 0. N. Kil
lough and the Chancery Court
were to blame for his death. At
the scafford he made practically
the same speech. He said that
he was an honest man and that
he was being hanged by a bunch
of thieves and robbers.
He was pronunced dead by Dr.
Barner in 20 minutes after the
drop fell.
He said he had notified Ril
lough and Gardner to be present,
but noticed that none of them
were present..
Henry Harding was hangt'd
for the deliberate murder of
Hon. J. T. Patterson, who repre
sented Cross County in the Leg
islature of 1905. The killing oc
curred in Patterson’s law office
at Wynne October 10, 1909. A
speedy trial followed, and Hard
ing was sentenced to hang De
cember 31, 1909. An appeal was
granted December 23 by Chief
Justice McCulloch, acting as a
stay of execution, and on Febru
ary 28, last, the Supreme Court
affirmed the sentence of the
lower court. Later, upon the
issuance of the mandate, Gover
nor Donaghey fixed today as the
date of execution, and refused
all applications made for a com
mutation of sentence or further
stay.
The tragedy was the result of
an altercation between Harding
and Patterson, who was his at
torney in a civil suit in the Cross
Circuit Court. Patterson had
won the suit, but Harding did
not approve the management of
the case, and went to Patter
son’s office tc adjust their differ
ences. The argument became
heated, and Harding shot and
killed Patterson. He claimed
The great Baking Powder

homes—never

CREAM
Baking Powder
Received the highest award
at Chicago World’s Fair
that Patterson attempted first to
strike him with a chair, but the
State’s evidence did not bear out
this contention. It was shown
that Harding was abusive and
was ordered from the office, and
as he turned to leave drew his
revolver and shot the attorney
dead.

A LETTER FROM
T. D. BUCHANAN
To The Voters of Nevada Co.:
Having been urged by ny
friends of both political parties
to announce myself for the of
fice of county surveyor, I have
consented to make the race. I
suppose that I am generally
known by most of my fellow
citizens of Nevada County, hav
ing canvassed the county some
few years ago. I do not think
this office should be to the inter
est of any political party. As to
my qualifications, I beg leave to
say that I feel fully competent
to perform the duties required
of a surveyor, having, when a
young man, studied the science
under my teacher, (Prof. W. F.
Tucker, of the state of Mississip
pi,) who was a graduate in civil
engineering and surveying.
Since that time I have put into
practice what I learned in
theory.
For many years I have done
work in the surrounding counties
and especially in Clark and Ne
vada. Should you deem me
worthy of your suffrage it will
be highly appreciated and if
elected, I promise to do all the
work instrusted to me in the line
of surveying, accurately and ac*
cording to the field notes on file
in the clerks office.
Give me your vote in the Sep
tember election and I will make
you a faithful, impartial and ef
ficient surveyor.
Respectfully.
T. D. Buchanan.
