, The General Assembly is composed
of conservative men who are disposed
to legislate .in favor of the masses in-J
stead of the classes. : Judging from
the general appearance - of things,
there will be some legislation of vast,
importance to the, ' stafee, among , the
questions under , discussion . being
those of -a more equitable method of,
taxation, longer school - terms, good
rcad3 building, etc..
As there has been considerable agi-
tation , for immediate, action along
lines-of proposed legislation, it is be
lieved that the legislative biirwill be,
set to srindiBg without a customary
delay of several days and for, thia rea
son the opinion is expressed that im-
until the last few days of the session,-

: i A GeorgiavState 'Association. was or
ganized here Tuesday afternoon by the
Greater.: Hendersonvile c(lub. '. Dr.
Truex, of Atlanta," was elected presi
dent, Harold 'M. Smith,' of Tennille,
Ga., secretary , and Leonard Phinizy, of
Augusta, treasurer. Ar number of
prominent Geprgians were enrolled as
members..- .The organization of this
association will come as a matter of
interest to all Georgians and especial
ly to that r t element that spend the
summers here. It will be remember
ed that the weekly Press Association
of , Georgia held a convention here
about 4ryears ago, and those in attend-;
ance expressed themselves aS being
delighted with' Hendersonville. As a
result a 'greater number of Georgians
have been coming here .since. The
fact that -a Georgia State Asssociation
has been established here will doubt
less attract' many others to this high
ly .favored section. The State clubs
committee, of the Greater Henderson
yille club is actively engaged in organ
izing .similar associations in ther
states! Hendersonville is destined to
become The City of States. :

iives, Dicea Dill, of this lace, wife of.
Xohpi: Dill, the victica to whom it is.
said the blame' for" the catastrophe :1s
attached, figures . coaspicuously. : ; ;
i In 1905 John Dill '.was married to
Dicea Alien,' of Campohello, S. U3. At
that time . licenses to wed were not
Issued inrlhat state. The license law
has since been enacted. ' , Dicea claims,
that the marriage was jperformed be
fore a Justice of the Peace ;andjn the
presence of witnesses, hen.ee -was legal
lneyery sense.' At first aD.went.well
and. John provided for Ms vif e's Hsnp
port. , Later he grew indifferent in
this respect and spent most of !his
time-away if rom ; home. IFour.'years
ago 'Dicea sued him for nonsupporL
The. stipulation set forth' was thatrhe
either, suppott her or stay away from
her entirely and ceased to Interfere
with her affairs. John chose the latter-recourse.
Neither sued however
tor divorce. There has been no com
munication between the couple since
that date. ; In the meantime, John took
unto himself two other wives 4n differ
ent :twns. It is alleged that these
wives can show "certificates of mar
riage. He grew tired of them in time
and deserted them likewise."
John's highly colored matrimonial
career suddenly jerminated when he
was blown into atoms by the'bpiler
explosion of a week.-ago. He had been
discharged by the Southern, for which
road he had worked, as fireman. He
Unst tippn p.moloved by. the Sea
board in the same - capacity and had
reported for work, for, the first time,
only .about four hours before the ex
plosion occurred. Dicea claims that
according t . report he was tinkering
with the boiler and run down the; pop
valve too low in order 4o hold down
the steam. He. took one ' chance too
many the pressure was too great
the steam could not rass off, and the
horrible catastrophe which resulted in
hurling eleven -souls into eternity was
the result. ' , J .:.. ' -' .' ..
Dicea had not even heard of his
death until the claim agent camehere
with" an offer, to compromies. , Dicea
claims that, he said the road was will
ing to divide three "hundred dollarsbe
tveen her, her child and wife No. 2. It
seems that wife No. 3; has tereda:
damage suit against e road.. vDicea
8aysthe claim agent has already, paid.
her - $25.00,; and that he claims he .wfll
nay the child in the neighborhood of
$125.00. Wife ... No.- : 2, according to
Dicea's statement is -to v receive the
f three hundred. Dicea
states that she agreed to accept what-
"v vvv , . . i a i., Vail oa. np.r
ever the road saw m y
respectability, kept her from nting
to' be Ji.ixed up in a sl.wfthQm
,gly features. She further, states that
she has "signed the papers She
seemed to think that, the fact, that she
could not "show a license," under the
laws of the State of South Carolina, at
the time of the marriage, -would prove
a bar to legal proceedings, though-he
claims she can prove that her marriaee
was legal. t '

Gus Gaither, colored,-" shot and in
stantly killed his wife,. Zerusha Gaith
er, at their Jiome, directly across from
the Presbyterian Manse, shortly af
ter 9 pciock Thursday, night " The
.weapon ;used 'was an army rifle. sTne
ball entered just ;above the upper lip
and came out at the back of the neck."
Domestic infelicities .' are alleged as
the., cause of he dastardly crime. A
quarrel had been in progress for sev
eraldays, according . .to the : testimony
of various, persons. - While the negro
and his wife were eating their supper,
it Is' alleged, the uuarrel was resumed
and that ' the wbman requested Gaith
er to pack his trunk and get out, as It
seemed - 'impossible for them to, live
peaceably together That they finish
ed their supper and the woman af
terward seated herself in front of the
fire. "Gaither left the rbom and soon
after was Jheard ( fumbling around ii?
an adjoining room in which there was
no light A slight noise - evidently
caused 'the woman' to turn her head in
the direction of the opened door to the
darkened room: Instantly there was
a blinding flash and her upturned face
received the full discharge of the gun.
Death was instantanedus.-: . It is claim
ed thai' a woman and boy; were, in the
room at the' time, but had their hacks
f turned, intent upon looking at a mag-
azine, and that tne crime waaf enacted ,
With such hferrible swiftness that they
uia not nave , time to turn Tound be
fore the woman was stretched: in
death, Hence .there ; were no; real ey e
witnesses' tolhe tragedy.; :No sooner
1 was the diabolical ,crime committed
than4 the murdered threw down hls'gun;
rushed out o rthe hfjuse and gave him
.' self up" to " the1 authorities He ' was
locked in the county Jail pending a
preliminary trial which was held; at
thecourt house Tuesday, before -Justice
of the Peace, B. F. Hoood, at
whicli time three or four of the state's
witnesses were examined, when the
statefrested its case and the murderer
was - committed to Jail, without :halL
McD. Ray, Esq., appeared as plaintiff's
attorney, and W. A. Smith, Esq., rep
resented the defendant ; The case bids
fair to. be an Interesting one full of
dramatic coloring. . ; ,
Zerusha Gaither was the daughter of
Frank Brown, commonly known as
"Parson" Brown, a highly respected
colored man. According to v common
report her reputation was not of the
best. -:yX:; y:
Gus Gaither,; the . murderer, , came
originally from Charlotte and was for
some time , employed by Mr. George
Stephens, of Charlotte, in the ca
pacity of chauffeur.' For. two ox three
seasons, .including; last summer, he
worked at the Kanuga Lake Club. ; It
seems that, there has beeen domestic
friction in the Gaither household from,
