5 Prof. Bowman's lecture drew a good siz
ed audience last evening at he 'court house
The attendance pf ladies at these lectures
is increasing, an additional number being
present last night. " , .v ' .
"IMan ;as . a- savage has made wonderful
strides," said 'the speaker, "though man
as an idealist , is retrograding. ; Surely this
great "struggle "and- state of conflict which
we are undergoing is not the bests.
What prospect is . there that life will
become ;more rational? What OTospect yet
is there of the kingdom of God to be es
tablished? :I think that the prospects are
as braght;as the stars and I love to dwell
on this ideal state, for I believe dnihe ps-
sibilities of a human society infinitely high
er". than' the present. . . f
"Will the nations of , the earth ever rise
so far above the savage as .to SO out of the
butchers" business' and give up the barba
rous practice of. wars. The standard army,
millions of idlers trained 'for blood, ; is a
blot upon the civilization of the earth.
"The time, will come when the govern
ment will cease to exist as the boasts of
monarehs,. bosses and despots. s (applause)
A corrupt republic is Just as corrupt as. a
corrupt monarch; This barbarousness will
come to anr end when kings, bosses, mil
lionaires, trusts, combines and enslavers of
men shall cease. I sometime s think with
Lincoln' that God must love the common
man, for he has made so many of them.".
Prof. Bowman, in closing his remarks,
said that he lully". believed that; the time
was 1 not far distant when, the socialistic
theory would be the glorious consumation
of the nations of the earth.

tee. , The Gazette had a pleasant inter
view with (Mr. Luther at his -office,;, last
night, in which he said: ' ."There were
twenty-eight of ther thirjy-sixtCcomanittees

were -represented ,lby ' proxies, ? except two,
making' a representation of thirty-four.
The meeting -was held inUhe,3rarbprough

draft ,a suitable address to the people of

cago; platform was tf eaffirmed and "the state
platform adopted: by the' state . convention
approved. The "policy of the .republican
party in both state and'i nation was .con
demned. The address, which will soon be
published, sets forth the principles of white
supremacy, and - invites everr man who is
in favor, of . the supremacy )pt! the Anglo-.
Saxon race to join the .democratic, party
in its effort to redeem, the state from radi
cal misrule. Many other irnatters'of a
business nature were discussed arid acted
upon.' The address submitted was unani
mously adopted by the committee. The
report in the Gitizen' that a majority was
opposed to' the Isssuihg at this: time of . an
address is a mistake, as a large (majority
was from the 'beginning in favor of such
move." .. y
Mr. Luther further stated, that the meet

and harmonious. ,

W. , R. Sams of Madison county, whp is

rious, if not fatal,; shooting affair . which
occurred - on Shelton Laurels-last Satur

on the left side. Doctor. Banner, was sent
for, and-after probing the wound pronounc
ed it a fatal one. The patient, however was
still alive when Mr. Sams left..,
"This aft air, it is alleged, grew out of a
long standing feud, and that a, woman, was
at the bottom of the trouble. Both of the
participants are young men. ; Shelton lives
in Tennessee and was on a visit'to friends
and relatives in "Madison, his -old home
Hare had not been arested at last ac

,Mr. Sams also : says that, there was s
bloody riot on Bull creek a few days ago,
in which stones, knives, sticks, and pistols
were used. The disturbance occurred at a
corn shucking given by W. !A, JAustin. Mr,
Gams says that not less than twenty (men
were engaged in it, and while.no one was
killed, several were badly ohhded."----!N
less than twenty shots were -fired. Chairs
were' broken' and burned, thceloek thrown
in the fire and the disturbers ..undertook t6
roast the old dog alive by, covering him up
with hot embers. ' ' -
Warrants were, issued 'for. the; offenders,
a number of whom attended trial with guns
in hand. The trial was moved from Jus
tice J. F. Tilson .to L. W. Peek, and the
hearing will take place Friday. '
The affair has caused much excitements
owing to the number"1 of persons engaged

serious trouble will occur. 'Mf: asms says
that the same-rowdy "crowd. threatened to
release every man on, the chain: gang, but
did not do so. .
