A BLOODY CRIME IN ASHE
Two fieri and a Woman Chopped to
Pieces With an Axe.
Jefferuon, Special. The must hor
rlblo tragedy that has ever be..n en
acted Jn the memory of the oldest
inhabitants of the county took place
Sunday, at the foot of the Alleghany
mountain range, just inside of this
county. Crick Davis, with an axe, cut
to pieces two nun and his own wife.
The story of the crime runs thua:
Davis, who lived at the foot of the
mountain, was visited by two former
friends and acquaintances, Alfred
Ffarker and Ron, Levi, who lived near
Chilhowle, Va. They had Btopped at
his houe on their way to see'' their
relatives in thh section. Davis seem
ed very clever and insisted on their
spending the night with him. They
consented and when bedtimes came
every one in the house retired. The
two visitors occupied the same bed.
Davis and his wife occupied another
bed close by, possibly in the same
room. Hardly had they retired when
Mrs. Davis heard a noi.se, and on
looking toward where the Harkcrs
were sleeping, saw her husband with
tho axe, cutting the Barkers to pieces.
She sprang out of the bed and tried
to keep her husband from killing the
old man, Alfred, and immedjately
Davis gave her two blows that sent
her to the floor. Ivi had been
killed by the first blow, that had split
his head half open as clean as one
splits a hog's head in slaughtering.
Alfred had been saved apparently by
Mr?. Davis, as he had time to crawl
out of the bed and into a field of rye,
close by. Nevertheless, he was bleed
ing like a hog and will die, having re
ceived the axe up to the hilt in his
stomach and having his right arm
cut off. Alfred says that as he lay in
the field he heard the awful blows
that followed on the body of Mrs.
Davis, and heard her groans grow,
fainter and fainter. Rut the woman
was not yet killed, ad after the ex
citement had subsided Davis took his
wife in the house, washed her wounds
and washed himself. Davis' little girl,
with the baby in her arms, was the
one who gave the alarm, she escap
ing for her life at the outset.
When people came in they found
Davis sitting by his wife administer
ing to her wants, but the woman
seemed to be in such agony she paid
little attention to what was going on.
Davis said: "I guess I have killed
them, but I didn't know it." A sur
geon summoned from Mountain City,
Ten., gave it out that all would cer
taily die and the rumor is current on
the streets that the woman is dead.
Parties just from the scene of the
tragedy say that there is blood ev
erywhere, that ten heaves would not
have left as much blood scattered
around a slaughter" pen. No motive
can be found for the hellish deed,
though many theories have been ad
vanced. One la that Davis was in
sane, that he had been out of his
head only six months before. Another
is that Levi Rarker was once a sweet
heart of his wife and that this visit
stirred up jealousy. It is said that it
is true the man has been wrong with
his mind several times, but that he
wag really a very meen man and had
once before tried to kill a man with
an axe. The theory of jealousy ia not
believed owing to the fact that Mrs.
Davis was a woman of fine Christian
character and had never given the
slightest attention to Barker since her
Davis is in jail here, having been
bound over to court.
Accident at Hamlet.
Hamlet, Special. J. C. Haverley,
day operator at the north yard, was
run over by a switch engine, here
Tuesday morning at 7:20 o'clock and
injured so badly that he died four
hours later. There was no eye witness,
to the accident, but from a statement
made immediately after the occur
rence, it seems that he was walking
the main line, going from the depot
to the yard to work, and seeing pa
senger train No. 31 coming, he step
ped off on to the side-track, and the
switch engine running parallel with
No. 31, and which he had not ob
served, struck him. His right leg and
shoulder were badly mutilated.

Boston, Special. The Morgan line

SUICIDE AT GASTON! -
Young Man Under Indictment Take
tils Own Life.
Castonia. Special. E. II Caldwell, a
joung merchant who had been arrcst-
u for retailing whiskey, late Wednes
day night, committed suicide In rear cf
his store near the Iray Mills.
Usually very little attention is civ
en by the public to the indictments and
trials before magistrates of those ac
cused by violating the whiakey laws.
This was the case, when it waa casu
ally mentioned on the streets of the
city that young Caldwell, who has been
running for about a year a grocery
store near the Loray Mills, bad been
indicted for this offense, tried before
a magistrate and bound over to court
under a $200 bond. Every one waj
thu3 unprepared for the startling be
iuel, when it became know that some
time during the night Caldwell
had committed suicide In toe
rear part of his store. It i3
supposed that the deed was com
mitted about midnight, as different
parties living near the place remember
having heard the report of a gun about
It seems that Tuesday afternoon,
Caldwell requested a friend to buy for
him a certain amount of strychnine,
but the request was refused, with the
suggestion that he mount his horsa
and leave the country, if he wished to
get away from his troubles. At night
he told -his wife that he was goinf,- to
his father's, to talk tho matter over
with him, and this accounts for the
fact that his body was not found until
morning. It seems that he secured a
shot-gun and placing it to that part of
his body just over the heart, pushcj
the trigger with a broom handle. In
stant death resulting. Before doing
this, however, he wrote a short letter
to his wife, declaring hia love for her
and the children, and stating that it
was all right with bim and his God.
Caldwell has been here for about two
years, for a time at the Dixie. Farm,
then at the Morrow Roller Mill. By his
conduct he had won the confidence of
all who knew him. Some months ago
he went into the mercantile business,
in which he has not been successful,
and then came the other troubles al
ready referred to. In his letter to his
wife, he stated that he could not stand
the lies that had been, and would be
told about him. He was only about 23
years of age, and leaves a wife, and
four young children. The remains
were carried to Gutheriesville, S. C,
where he formerly lived.
Tril to Proceed.
Wilson, Special. According to the
expectation of the majority of those
who heard the affidavits in the Jones
murder case, Judge Shaw renderd a de
cision that sufficient evidence for a
continuance had not been brought out.
In giving out this decision he said in
part while there had not been sufficient
evidence brought out in the evidence of
affidavit to show the existence of a
state of public sentiment as claimed by
the defendants, yet there had been
some sentiment sthred up by the city
papers and by the discussion of the
case on the streets, and if at any time
during the trial of this case it came to
the knowledge of the court that there
was any outside influence bearing on
the trial it would be continued until
the September term.
Daughter's D?ath Killed Her.
Wilmington, Special. A peculiarly
sad death occurred at Point Caswell,
near Wilmington Tuesday afternoon.
Mrs. Ludwig Vollers, wife of a leading
German citizen in that section, upon
learning of the death of her daughter,
Mrs. George Haar, of Wilmington, the
morning previous, suffered a collapse
and died within two hours. She leaves
a large family of sons and daughters,
as well as her aged husband, for

Lowell, Mass., Special. The textile

Every union affiliated with tht council
was represented and the vote was
unanimous. Mule ppinners and loom
fixers were included In this vote. The
meeting lasted an hour. There was no
dissension. The sitcation was discuss
ed carefully and with no suggestion of
excitement. The vot ahowed every
delegation favorable to a return tc

Agr-nt William Scuthwork, secre
tary of the agents, said: "It will be
impossible to start the balance of the
machinery so as to employ at once all
who will come back. Running with
an incompltte force for three weeks
has disturbed the balance that usually
exists between stock and prices in th?
various departments. A mill may have
depleted stock in certain kinds of
yarn and for that reason be unabte ta

completement of help is available. It

urers to decide, in view of the market
whether we shall attempt to run in"
The strike began on March 30th an 1
involved about 17,000 operatives. The
miils were shut down until June 1
when the agtnts opened the gates and
the majority of the operatives went
back to work. Th? strike has cost in
wages about $1,300,000.
It is understood that the agents will
take back all the old help they have
room for and will make no discrimina
tion against the leaders of the strike
movement. The high price of cotton
precluded any hope of the success of
ine strikers' demand for a 10 per cent.
War Against Mad Mullah.
Simla,. India, Ey Cable. Major Gen
eral Charles Comyn Egerton, who has
been in command of the Punjaub
frontier forces since 1890, has been ap
pointed to the command of the Somali
land expeditionary force which is op
erating against tho Mad Mullah, su
perseding Brigadier General W. H.
General Manning who took command
of the British exuedition in Somali
land last November, after a reverse
suffered by Colonel Swayne, has not
proved successful in his campaign.
Columns detached from the force have
been badly mauled by the Mullah's
followers, tho most serious British de
feat being the ambushing of Col. Plun
kett's flying detachment of 208 men,
with two maxims, on April 17, when
Col. Plunkett, all his officers and prac
tically the entire force were wiped out.
The last advices received In London,
June 16, were to the effect that General
Manning himself was surounded and
unable to assist Colonel Cabb, whose
column was in a serious position at
Callaby, and on half rations. One of
the causes of the non-success of the
expedition has been the cowardice of
the native Somaliland regiment, of
vhich so much was hoped when it was
formed recently. Only a few days ago
news came that the native cr.mel corps
had mutinied. The operations against
the Mullah, who first raised the tribes
against the British in 1899, have al
ready cost $2,000,000. A desire has
been manifested to abandon the cam
paign, but in view of the predicament
of General Manning's forces, it has
been found necessary to order British
troops in India, and when they arrive
the British expedition in Somaliland
consist of 800 British, 1,200 Indian, and
