and in the meantime King went to
his home about one hundred yards
away, he s&id to get a jug. others
said to get a pistol, and returned to
Arnolds. An argument ensued, bad
words passed. Both parties with oth
ers present left ArnMds' home to
go .to King's home. Abnold stating
he was going after his wife who was
at Kings. When about half way be
tween the two homes the climax came
when Arnold was shot, and died
a few minutes, by King. King's evC
dence showed that he turned, went
hctme, got his wife and little boy and
went to his grandfathers without
knowing he had shot Arnold. Other
witnesses stated he said after shoot
ing Arnold "Damn you,. If that ain't
enough I'll give you more."

Here is the way the Hoover orga

of the farmer whet are trying to re.
main within th.f Republican party.
Claude H. MacKenzle, the present
Republican National Committeeman
from Minnesota, was pre.convention
manager of the campaign of Governor
Lowden in his state. Notwithstand
ing the fact that he Is national com.
mltteeman. Mr. MacKenzle and most
of his associates have been swept
aside by Republican national head.:
quarters, and conduct of the campaign
in that state put into the hands of
men who never made the mistake of
offending Mr. Hoover by champion
ing the cause of the farmer. This
is not a surprising development to
the leaders of farm organizations, who
have been bumping up against the
hostility of Mr. Hoover at Washing,
ton at every turn during the past
eight years of fighting for equality.
But as a warning to farmers of the
sort of consideration and treatment
they may expect at the White House
should Mr. Hoover be elected, the in.
cldent ought to be enlightening.
