Knoxville, Term., Not. 2. At
an early hour this morning 300
convicts at Oliver Springs were
liberated by a band of armed and
mounted men, who rode into that
place from the direction of the
mountains. After liberating the
prisoners the stockade was set on
fire and burned; Tha. convicts for
the most part were furnished with
citizens' clothes by tbeir liberators,
The band" had no trouble
in setting the convicts
free. The guard was evidently
overawed and offered no resistance.
It is reported that it is the inten
tion of the miners to liberate the
convicts now confined at Tracy
City, but no confirmation of this
rumor can be had at present.
It is estimated that there are at
least 500 convicts now at large who
have been given their liberty by the
miners. The Governor left early
this morning for Nashville. A good
deal of speculation as to the reason
for his visit to that city is indulged
Mt. Vernon, Ky., Nov. 2 Ten
of the Briceville and Coal Creek
convicts were arrested and jailed
last night. The sympathy of ihe
people generally is with the miners.
Important Oases Argued in theSupreme
Yesterday in the Supreme com t
the case of the merchants purchase
tax, which was alluded to in Sun
day's;CiiRONiCLE, was taken up. It
is that of the State "against W. A
French and George R. French (of
the firm of George R. French and
Sons,! of Wilmington.) Hon. Geo.
Davis; made the opening argument
for the defence. Hon. A. M. Wad
dell afgued in behalf of the State.
George Rountree, Esq., closed for
the defence. In this case the de
fendants purchased the goods out
side te State and their condition is
that tpe imposition of this tax is an
attembt by the State to regulate in-
A LL 1
er-ocaie commerce.
Tbi next case taken up was that
of theiState against Stevenson, also
from Wilmington. In this case the
purchases were made in th State
and itf is contended that the State
has no right to impose the tax be
cause it is in effect a double tax.
The argument in the latter case is
not concluded. All the speeches
were able. The cases involve $30,
000 a year in taxes.

Gentlemen : I consider the Elec
tropoise a most wonderful discov

ily for la grippe, acute sore throat
neuralgia, and nervous headache
with perfect success. I am also
treating a verv severe case of
chronic cp.tarrh with the Electro
poise as the only agent, and it has
given great relief, and if treatment
is continued I believe it will effect a
perfect cure. An intelligent use of
it carries conviction with it.

Sad Death of a Promising Youth.
The death of James E. Shepherd,
Jr., son of Justice Shepherd, of the
Supreme Court, who died in A6he
ville Sunday afternoon, brought
great grief to his fond parents and
friends. He was attending Bingham
school and some days ago his father
and mother were called to his bed
side. He had typhoid fever and
they tenderly nursed him. Satur
day the doctors assured Judge Shep
herd that there was no nececsity of
his presence, and he returned to
Raleigh with the belief that his son
would recover. Sunday night a
telegram came that he was dead.
Never did fond parents have
keener grief. It was a most
crushing blow and the judge wasal
most prostrated." At 12 o'clock,
accompanied by Dr Hubert Hay
wood, Col. Thos. S. Kenan and
Mrs. Dr. E. S. Barm, Judge Shep
herd left on a special train for
Asheville to join his wife and this
morning bring back the body of his
son, who will be buried at Wash
ington. The young man was a model
youth, studious, considerate,thought
ful, polite, the friend of the old who
held him in high esteem. He had
respect for his elders and looked up
to them. He was a manly youth
ambitious to excel, and anxious to
do what was right. He was an
upright and conscientious boy, and
had given his heart to the Savior.
Not many months ago, when
Evangelist Fife was coming to
Raleigh, this noble young man
wrote to his father and said : 4I
want you to go and hear him. You
may not like him at first, but it will
be all right after awhile." He was
devotedly attached to his parents
and relatives. When in Raleigh
every morning and afternoon he
and his father would take a walk
together, and as he was growing to
maturity his fond father was coming
to lean on him, and he was the
light of his mother's and grand
father's life. It is sad to think that
one so promising and young should
be cut down in the springtime of
life. It is sweet to think that his
life had been so pure and helpful to
others, and that he had given his
heart to the Lord Jesus and is now
at rest.
Arrangements have been made
for a special train to-day to meet at
Selma the private car ot Col. A. B.
Andrews, so as to take the remains
of Mr. Shepherd to Washington.
The remains will arrive here at
7.30 this morning and thus go
directly through to Washington.
