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 marriage. 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. Shipping Cotton to New Orleans. Boston, Special. The Morgan line steamer El Monte, is due at Mystic wharf next Monday from New York to take a shipment of 8,000 square bales of cotton to New Orleans. This cotton is now being received at the terminal from the Tremont and Suf folk -Stills. Lowell, and the entire consignment will be in the shed by the first of the week. This cotton, it is said, is being sent back to the South to cover the shorts in their July delivery. A Philadelphia concern Is said to be the purchaser of the cot ton from the mills. Aycock at Vanderbilt. Nashville, Tenn., Special. Gov ernor Chas. B.

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 that time. 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.

She leaves a large family of sons and daughters, as well as her aged husband, for whom the community feel the deepest sympathy. The funeral of the daugh ter who died in Wilmington was held here and members of the family and friends left immediately for Point Cas well to attend the funeral of the mother there Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock. Dr. Venable Honored. Philadelphia, Special. At the com mencement of the University of Penn sylvania the honorary degree of doctor of laws waa conferred upon President Venable, of the University of North Carolina. False Rumors. False rumors of the death of Pope Leo were circulated in Vienna and elsewhere. State Brevities. The list of books recommended for use in the rural public schools free libraries is almost prepared.

Lowell, Mass., Special. The textile rmmcii Sunday tlfclcrec fLe grrat strike at the Lowell mills at an end. 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 work at once. When asked for a state ment, President Conroy said smiling ly: "We now worship at the altar of defeat, but later we shall rise aga!n and conquer." 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 start all of its looms, even if the full completement of help is available. It 15 for the selling agents and the treas urers to decide, in view of the market whether we shall attempt to run in" full." 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. increase 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. Manning. 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 native troops. Safe Blower Blown Up. Noblesville, Ind., Special. George Marvin, said to be from Chicago, is in the county'jail here in a dying con dition, as a result of an alleged at tempt to blow the safe in a general store at Jolietville. Citizens of the village who were awakened by a ter rible explosion found Marvin lying un conscious near the store, with one arm blown away from his body, otherwise so terrible mangled that he connot live. When the citizens approached another man ran away, making his escape. The accidental dropping of a can of nitroglycerine was the cause of the explosion. Guilty of flurder. Omaha, Special.

The WorU pub lishes a dispatch frem lriacrion. N. J., quoting former Iresldcn Cleveland as saying: "It is perfectly absurd to suppuac fur an Instant that 1 have any d-aire lu reenter public life. Nor have I c-mott-ly entertained the thought since I left Washington more than six years ago. Th matter is ms far from uiy thoughts as it was in when all r;urt itc '.: not i:hl. tur hcadng or sight.

"I have on several occasions within the year undertaken to perform the labor which usually falls to the private in tLe rear ranks but there has njt lurked within me the hope of any re ward save the consciousness of having made an effort to assist in bringing about salutary conditions in the par ty." C ouid Nut Agree. Jackson, Ky., Special. The jury in the case of Jett and White, charged with the murder of Lawyer James K. Marcum, wis discharged, having been unable to arcc. At S o'clock the Jury filed into the couit room and Foreman Richard Millard said: '"Your Honor, we find no chance of coming to an agreement." Judge Itedwine said: 'I will keep you gentlemen until Saturday night, unless ycu get a ver dict sooner. There is no reason why a verdict should not be reached in this case." Foreman Miliard said: "One man has as much right to his opinion as another, and may stick to it." It is believed froa this that there was only one man between a verdict and it is conceded that only one juror then was for conviction. It is said the question of punishment had not been considered. Later the jury again reported that it was unable to agree, and shortly after 9 o'clock it was discharged, so there will be another trial. The dominant faction evidently ex pected acquittal. There waa at least one juror who held out against thi3. The acene after the announcement was in no wise exciting. Some who started to clap their hands were stop ped by the court. The guards took im mediate possession of the prisoners and they were closely guarded back to jail. People gathered around the court house discussing the case, but there was no disturbance or outward sign of trouble. , Attorney Byrd, after consultation. maUe a motion for a change of venue.
