ter, Mrs. Leonard and placing her arms
around her neck, burst into a fit of
weeping, asserting her innocence, de
claring she never thought of burning
the birn. Mrs. Leonard replied in
sobs "sister I cannot help what you
say, the law has put you in jail, not me

bow many things you have done and
you never would listen to me." An of
ficer tore the sisters apart, conveying

letter was one she had received In June
from K. L Crutchfield, the negro now
serving a life sentence for instigating
the murder of railroad foreman Beach
man the month following. It was full
of endearing terms and named a time
and place for their meeting together
a few days later. It is a significant
fact that Crutchfield several years ago
was suspected of having burned two

ants for the position.
Labor Commissioner Varner was
here today and was talking about his
work of visiting cotton mills and other
manufacturing phnts. He says that
the towns and mills are growing so fast
that it is very dimcvlt to keep up with
them. Speaking of the employment of
children in the mlls he said that while
there were children under age in mills
yet the law against their employment
under a certain age was as well oLeyed
as other laws. He declared that what
is worse needed is a compulsory educa
tion law. He has no authority to in
spect mills and there is no penalty upon
them for their failure to report to him.
He will recommend amendments to
the present law to the next legislature.
He has already recommended a more
stringent law in regard to child labor
in mills and will renew the recommen
dation. He says the only appropria
tions available for the examination of
mills is $350 a year and that the whole
amount allowed his department is $3,-
500, from which small sum the State
expects to get some brief reports, such
aa are made in New York, Pennsylvania
Missouri end other States. A gentle- j
man who was present while the inter- !
view was taking place remarked that
in a certain mill a visitor asked a very
small boy his age. The boy replied 13.
The gentlemen then asked him how
long he had been employed in the mill
and he said 6 years. There are cer
tainly some extremely sma'I chileren
in cotton mills here and there in the
State and as soma observant gentle
man has remarked a lot of these must
either be dwarfs or under twelve years
Congressman elect, Richard N. Hack
ett was a visitor here today, leaving
for home this afternoon. He talked
very interestingly about his stirring
campaign and fine victory in the eighth
district. He was asked the question
what Spencer Blackburn's attempt to
contest the election amounted to, and
replied: "There never was a fairer
election from a Democratic standpoint.
If there were any irregularities they
were on the Republican side of the
fence. The fact is that Spencer Black
burn is in this contest for another rake
off. I do not anticipate any results of
course. It will simply be the trouble
to me to get evidence to rebut any at
temp ted evidence he will present As
a mat ter of fact the Republicans in the

tion in attempting a contest. A lot of
them opposed his election and voted
