the weavers. There is little doubt but
that the rest of the employes will go

weavers will return because the loss of
wages for the past eight weeks has
driven many of them, as well as other
operatives, into straightened circum

opinion that the operatives will have
trouble in operating the machinery

fall scries of the lJiue Orass lynching
bees. Saturday at the close of the
Itfultyville fair, Osear Morton, a prom
inent and wealthy citizen of Stanton,
in Powell county, went on the warpath.
Only two weeks ago Morton killed a
man at Stanton and wa out on $5,003
bond to appear next w eek at the Powell
circuit court. When Morton arrived at
the fair he proceeded to get drunk and
then went to find Sheriff William
Simms. who was his deadly enemy, a
feud of long standing existing between
the two men. Simms and Morton met
near the entrance to the fair grounds,
and after a few words both of tlieiu
drew guns and a quick exchange of
shots followed. When the smoke had
cleared away it was found that Sheriff
Simms was dead. Before a crowd could
collect Morton was hustled to the coun
ty jail. The jieople became infuriated
and a big meeting was at once held in
the public square. A mob was quickly
formed and marched to the jail. The
jailor was overpowered and the keys
to Morton's cell were obtained. After
a short parley he was taken to a little
bridge some distance from the town
and the rope was placed around his
neck. The leaders drew their guns
and told him to jump or else he would
be riddled wite bullets. He jumped
breaking his neck, after cursing his
captors. Further trouble is expected.

Birmingham, Ala., October 15. As
November approaches the congressional
campaign grows more heated. The
populist in Alabama appeared and are

forts than ever. They are jubilant
over the Oeorgia result.
However, the democrats are very
active, and are preparing to meet every
move made by the opposition. . They
are inviting to this state such speakers
as Speaker Crisp, Secretary of Interior
Smith, Congressman John Allen, of Mis
sissippi, and others, besides Senator
Morgan. All the congressional candi
dates are already on the stump, and a
very lively campaign is being waged.
In the first, fourth and lifth districts
the anti-democratic nominees are
straight out . republicans, whom the
populist and .TelTersonians or Kolbites
have indorsed in their district conven
tions and agreed to support. In the re
maining distric ts, except the sixth, the
opponents of democracy are populists
or Kolbites, who have the indorsement
of the republican conventions, so that
the fusion lietween the populists, Kolb
ites and republicans is complete, one
district excepted, so far as the conven
tions and party machinery of the three
parties are concerned. This admits of
but two complete sets of tickets in the
