Cecil Carroll was entenced in Vance Superior Court oday by Judge Walter L. Small to serve not less than four and not more han six years in State Prison for the laying of Claude Huffman at North Henderson several months ago. The ase occupied the entire day of court Thursday, and earnest were nade to th ecourt hy cr/insel today’ n behalf of the defendant. Carroll happened at the Huffman mme at a time when there appeared ome differences of opinion • in the lousehold about instructions to the hildren. and ,in some way he was 'rawn into the argument. Some words vere passed between him and Huff nan and a scuffle ensued, during vhtch the two men went to the floor, n an effort to extricate himself, it /as claimed. Carroll drew a knife and atally slashed Huffman, who died a hort while later. Bert Powell was chaged in a trial hat lasted most of the morning with ransporting liquor and driving a car /hile under the influence of liquor.

These cases cleared up the criminal locket, and ended a day ahead of ime a calendar which at the outset arly in the week looked like a long ug of war for the court. But sub nissions were made in several homi •ide ease* and a burglary case, which iverted the necessity for long hear ngs.

Daniel, of Virginia, being the temporary chairman and Senator Stephen White, of California, perman ent chairman. When the crowd was assembling In the convention hall In thf* World's Fair district I discovered my friend, William J. Bryan, of Nebraska, sit ting on the platform. Bryan and I first met when Bryan was in congress a few years before. Bryan beckoned me to sit with him. Bryan inqme<jiately asking me for tickets to the convention halt, say ing he had many friends outdoors who would not get in, because the tickets for Nebraska had been given lo the "gold” crowd fmnr that state, headed by Sterling Morton. The “gold” crowd had the regular creden tials from Nebraska. Bryun said to me: “I wouldn't be in here myself ex cept for meeting Clark Horwell. of At lanta. on ihe street, and h* gave me two tirttets for Mrs Bryan and my self.” . Given Bryan Tickets I gave Bryan a few tickets I had left in my pocket and promised to get h.m more at the first recess, but con fess that I never did*. I'told Bryan later if I had dreamed he would be nominated for president I would have dug up at leart 200 tickets for him! Bryap asked me from whotn the Kentucky delegates would" vote for president. This was. before the con vent lon 'was called to order. 1 re plied that the Kervtucklahd were in truded to vote for Senator Jo C. S. Blackburn, of Kentucky, but that Blackburn was not seriously a candi date for president and after on* or two ballots the Kentucky delegation would probably vote for Richard P. Bland of Missouri.

Independent Progressives Not Apt To Have Entrant If Roosevelt Is Nominee By CHARLES P. STEWART Washington, June 24—There will be no independent progressive ticket if the • Democrats nominee FrankMn D. Roosevelt. The drys, to be sure, may put up a presidential candidate. He probably will-he a progressive, in case they do. Governor Gifford Plnchot of Pennsyl vania is the possibility whose name comes moat readily to mind. The drys’ policy will be to make a bid for pro gressive as well as dry votes. However, a third piarty aspirant, no matter how advanced his views, will not win the progressives' solid back ing. with Roosevelt in tti« race. The Progressive Democrats have decided that the New Yorker is ac ceptable to them. They think he can be eleetd. Na turally it would b poor judgment on their part to desert him, even for the sake of a little additional radicalism, to support someone with no chance whatever. Progressive Republicans are not all so unqualifiedly pro-Rooeevelt. Skep tics among them voice a suspicion that his progressive-ism is somewhat wishy washy. Still, if so Individualistic a group can be said to have a leader, that leader is Senator George W. Norris of Nebraska, and Senator Nor ris is on record as prepared to bolt II—BRYAN APPEARS ON SCENE KSSr p>i 'S ' IB ■•’ ll;' MFiuw? oemt 1 I 'J|j jlffTil The lata William Jennings Bryan. never .get the nomination. J asked to whom the nomination would go. Bry an said: “I expect to" be nominated myself for president. ” I was astounded that this youth of 36 years would make such a claim. After scene further conversation I be came satisfied tidal Bryan was in dead ly earnest, although I could have little flalth in Bryan’s candidacy at that, time. I promised Bryan to canvass the Kentucky delegation at the first recess and see at least If I ouldn't ge ( him a few complimentary votes. I did this, but found little encouragement. The older men on the Kentucky dele gation like Blackburn. Hardin, Hoover for Roosevelt. .Supposing, then, that Roosevelt is nominated, half or more of the pro gressives in both major parties either will be whole-heartedly in his favor or*at least willing to make the best of him. Provided a progressive dry is available maybe they will vote for him. Otherwise they simply will hold aloof from the presidential contest. Anyway, there will not be enough of them for an independent fight on a national scale. A Democratic choice of anyone ex cept the New orker will present an en tirely situation. Then the progressives will be unit ed —with, no place to go. The G. O. P. convention could not have been less to their liking. Ex cept Roosevelt, they are well aware that no candidate they approve has the slightest prospect of being named by the Democrats. Progressive-ism not only is disin clined on general principles to sit back and do nothing: its expondenta are distinctly fearful that a trend toward fascism will develop from present critical condition*, and feel it as a heavy responsibility on them to com bat it.

The time, It Is true, will be exceed ingly short. Nevertheless, the progressives are capable of rapid work in an emerg ency.

Jams at that time had never met Bryan and knew haidly aoytmng of him. When I next met Bryan in the con vention hall, I told him I had secured the promise of seven or eight boys lor him after the dropping of Black burn. I explained, however, that the Kentuckians were operating under the unit rule and as there were 26 Ken tucky delegates, he would have to get at least 14 in order to obtain any sup port from Kentucky. Bryan’s Quarters Bry*n said: “You will get them. I am getting fine news from all over the west and south. Come to my hotel from time to time and let m* know haw you are getting along.” "Where are you staying?” I inquired “At the Windsor-Clifton,” Bryan re plied. "Where is that?” I asked. "On Monroe street, almost opposite the ladles’ entrance of the Palmer house," Bryan said. “Why should you stop at a little, cheap hash house if you are a candi date for president?” I inquired. “Why don’t you come over to the Palmer house and get a parlor and open head quarters, or go to the Auditorium An nex where the great crowds are gath ered?" “Mrs. Bryan and I have a very nice comfortable room at our hotel," said Bryan. "Come to see us.” On the third day of this convention the "gold" delegates from Nebraska were turned out and Bryan and his “silver” delegates seated. Th* Ne braska delegation marched into the hall headd by a brass band, with Bry an on thlr shoulders. They made a triumphant march around the hall amid some enthusiasm, but not a great deal. Seas Bryan’s Opportunity But when the committee on platform minority retorts, and it was announc reported. bringing in majority and ed there would be a debate o n the adoption of the platform, with three delegates speaking forth "gold” re port and two for the ‘‘silver” report (Bryan to get the closing speech), I then began to wake up.
