subjects also will be prepared for in

Besides, provisions for a scientific,

this amendment and' it is understood
that President Wilson also is strongly
opposed to it. .
Thework of preparing these measures
will be divided among the 18 House-

when in the presence of 5,000 people
the funeral services of Floyd and Claude
Allen were held in the family burial

In spite of the heavy clouds which
continued all day and a slight rain
which fell throughout the afternoon,
people traveled more than thirty-five
miles to attend the dual funeral of
the men who paid the death penalty

of Floyd Allen Saturday afternoon at

They came in conveyances, astride and
on foot. Many came from Grayson,
Wythe and Carroll Counties, scores of
them coming distances of twenty-five
miles or more. By noon the crowd was
enormous, and it was conservatively
estimated at 5,000.
At 2 o'oclck the caskets were brought
out of the home and placed in wagons
to be cotweeyed to the burial plot A
few minutes later the-long procession
started "the Journey to the last rest
ing place of Floyd and Claude Allen,
father and 'son.
The burial plot is located one mile
from the AUen home in a cultivated
field, and occupies a space on the top
of a ridge. A few yards away from
the burial ground is the home of Wil
liam Jones. The caskets rested in the
yard surrounding this home.
The funeral services were then con
ducted by the Rev. Floyd Zens and
the Rev. Mr. Monday, both Primitive
Baptists. Both Ministers made five
minute talks, out did not take any
upon the circumstances which led to
the deaths of the Mens. They were
followed by the Rev. J. T. Smith, a
Baptist missionary, who . spoke for
Immediately following the services
the vast crowd was permitted to view

people passed around, the caskets and

The crowd then left and the bodies
were borne to the burial plot. A brief

were consigned to their graves, Test

handed to Miss Wissler. She was
completely brok?n and wept aloud

OILERS WAGES INCREASED

I r- c.
On George Street At Pres
The regular monthly meeting of the'
Board of Aldermen was held last night
and a number of matters of considerable
interest were disposed of.
One of the most important matters
brought up was that of publishing a'
volume containing the city, charter,;
all the franchises which, have been
if past ycaTs and numerous
titers of jntcrest to the city.
he dfefajfor this book has been com
piled by rR. A. Nunn, city attorney,
and is now ready for publication. Upon
motion it was decided to have this book
printed and the city clerk was ordered
to advertise for ten days for bids for
doing this work.
The oilers employed at the city's
electric light and water plant petitioned
the Board to increase their wages from
twelve and one half dollars a week to
fifteen dollars. After considering the
matter and " upon the motion
if Alderman T. F. McCarthy, the
Board decided to grant their request.
H. P. Willis engineer at the plant ap
peared before the Board and stated
that the two firemen, now employed
at the water nd light plant had more
work than they were able to do
and asked that another man be em
ployed to assist them. This request
was also granted.
R. R. Eagle, city engineer appeared
before the Board and stated that unless
iomcthing was done it woul be useless
to place curbing along George street.
That the street was higher than the.
wlcwalk and unless the latter was rasjmjlcsstood they were listed in a private
or the street lowered, it would not; , Wjset of accounts and probably never
at all satisfactory to place the curbing
there. Upon motion it was ordered that
no more curbing be placed until an
investigation had been made by the
rtreets and pumps committee.
At a previous meeting the matter
of ' purchasing indicators for the dif
ferent fire stations was taken up w
discussed and was to have been reported
on last night but the committee wh"
