iilestiou. They wished to know
why Ihe officials hadn't the common

Citizens of Derita met yesterday
lor the purpose of I'm inulal ing some
plan of action, but beyond 1111 ex
pressed determination thai every
man must keep a watch on his own
premises, nothing detinile was de
cided upon. Harris is a 8lipM-ry,
active man, and he may now be
many miles from where he made
his attack Monday night.
'Squire John P. Hunter, of
rila, caiiio to tow n yesterday uud
purchased a revolver. He told the
the police that he proposed to carry
it, and (hat his neighbors also
would go armed. The decision
was endorsed. "A good many of
us have had guns for Harris for a
long time, but 1 reckon a man needs
something to carry around with
him now. I have laitl out in the
