A HOTEIj CI..EIIK AHRKSTRD.
Joliii Tierney Accused of Burning »
Hotel at Hendei'soTiville, N. C.
Macon, Ga., Aprils.—.JohnTierney,
a well known hotel clerk who has been
clerk at the Park Hotel in this city,
was arrested tnere on a warrant from
North Carolina charging him with
burning a hotel at Hendersonville, N.
0., a little over a year ago. The war
rant also calls for the arrest of J. J.
Nelson. Tierney says he will go back
to North Carolina witljout requisition
papers as he is positive he can easily
establish his innocence. According to
Tierney, Nelson was proprietor of the
hotel and Tierney was chief clerk.
Nelson gave §14,000 in mortgages on
the pro])erty and had it insured for
$14,500. Tierney’s home is at Niagara
Falls, N, y. He has many friends in

que design, with projecting pavilions
10 X 60 feet on all four sides, and cir
cular towers 25 feet in diameter, with
a total iloor space of 50,000 square
In s))eaking of the Government exhib'
it Dr. Chas. W. Dabney chair
man of the exhibit commission said:
The material for the Government ex
hibit at Atlanta is now all in hand and
can be placed in thirty days if neces
sary. The exhibit will be very com
ple'te and one of the most interesting
in every detail ever made by Uacle
Sam. To the visitor entering the Gov
ernment building from the northeast
entrance the first department exhibit
to meet the eye will be that of the
Smithsonian Institution on the left.
Among other rare exhibits here will
be seen a series of figures illustrating
the evolution of the negro from the
earliest animals, through the ape, the
chimpanzee, and the South African
bushman down to the negro as he is in
this country. Another interesting se
ries of ethnological representations
will bo figures of the aboriginal In
dians of tribes that once roamed
through the hills and forests of the
South, as the Cherokees, Chickasaws,
Creeks, etc. Further on the right w'ill
be the exhibit of the patent office, il
lustrating the wonderful triumphs of
EVOLUTION OF GINS AND PLOUGHS,
A.niong otlier models will be a series
illustrating the jjrogress of ginning
machines from the first cotton gin of
Whitney down to the comjilicated gin
of to-day. The plough will also be
illustrated by models from the earliest
plough shares down to the steam
plough of modern farming, and the
progress of other farming implements.
A special exhibit will illustrate the
progress of cotton manufacturing ma
chinery. The workings of the'geolo-
gical survey will bo illustrated by
maps and models, and map presses will
be in operation to illustrate that de-
partmerit of the work.
AGBIOULTUBE AND HORTICULTUBE.
Just beyond the interior department
exhibit, in the centre of the building,
will be the exhibit of the agricultural
department. Models of the fruits of
the country will be shown, in manj'
instances on their original tree's. Spe
cial attention will be paid to the ex
hibit of orange and citrous fruits, in
tended to show their methods of cul
ture, their diseases, and the methods
of preventing and curing diseases in
the trees and i>lants. A display will
also be made of horticultural and
fruit-growing tools and implements.
In this connection will also be made
an exhibit of the different soils of the
country, their adaptability to different
sorts of agriculture and horticulture.
Plants constructed of wax will illus
trate plant diseases and the insects that
prey on agricultural, and plant life,
and the chemicals and instruments
used to exterminate them. A full dis
play will be made of cotton plants,
both of this and foreign lands, in fac
simile models, the cotton and other
fibres of American and foreign growth,
and the insects and diseases' that prey
on the cotton crop, together with the
methods of war waged on them.
EIBDS AND BEASTS.
In the ornith'olxJgical and mammalo-
gical disj)lays will be realistic models
of the various birds and animals of
America, set in natural surroundings,
showing their habits and methods of
feeding. For instance, one of these
specimens will be a fox in the act of
carrying oft' a hen, and so natural is
the model that it will take a second
look to convince the observer that the
figures are not alive. These models
are prepared by experts and will illus'
trate fully the valuable on nefarious
habits of native beast and birds.
HOW MONEY IS MADE.
On the right hand aisle will be ex
hibited the workings of the treasury
department, including specimens of ail
sorts of money, bonds, etc., and a coin
ing stamp in operation. Owing to
Atlanta’s proximity to salt water the
exhibit of the fish commission will bo
the most beautiful and complete ever
made by the United States Govern
ment. The hatcheries will be repre
sented in operation and all kinds of
material used by the fish commission
will be presented.
MAILS, OLD AND NEW.
The postoffice department will have
specimens of all kinds of mailing
equipments used by the United States,
including a full history illustrative of
the mail service of the country, from
models of the first horseback mail car
riers down to the present day. The
dead letter office will be shown in oper
ation, and specimens of all stamps is
sued by the Government since the be
ginning will be on exhibition.
ARMY AND NAVY ILLUSTRATED.
In the annex of the building will be

the fullest detail all the different
styles and armaments of modern ves
sels, many models of historic vessels
and models illustrating the progress of
naval construction from the early days
of the Government down to the pres
ent day. The war department will
also have a very complete exhibit of
guns and army equipments and will
show in detail the. manufacture of the
modern army rifle, the different kinds
of projectiles, etc. As a whole the
Government exhibit will be complete
in every detail.
Members of the administration de
cline to discuss the recent firing on
the British flag by a Spanish gunboat
in almost the same place and under
about the same circumstances that the
Allianca was fired upon, but it is plain
to see that they are greatly pleased at
the incident, and that they expect to
see the British government promptly
call Spain to account for it.
As a rule public sympathy appears
to be with the Cubans in their strug
gle for independence, but there are
exceptions. A number of letters have
been received at the Spanish legisla
tion in Washington, from ex-Confed-
erate soldiers offering their services to
aid Spain in piitting down the revolt.
Some people believe these letters were
written by cranks, and that the Span
ish minister would not be able to
locate his volunteers, even if his gov
ernment wished to avail itself of their
assistance. ' However much Spain
might desire to enlist Americans in
her service it could not bo done
publicly, through the Spanish legation,
simply because it would be a violation
of the iaternational neutrality laws
that this government would never
allow. If there are any Americans
who desire to fight on either side they
should go to Cuba, where they can
easily make arrangements to do so,
and where their chances for getting
yellow fever or smallpox, instead of
glory, will be «bout 99 out of a possi

Many of the shad are caught around

]>Iinister Ransom In Mexico.
A city of Mexico si^ecial dated April
8th, says that United States Minister
Ransom rested ea,sier yesterday, but
that a large carbuncle had developed
on his neck and a similiar inconven
ience on his right elbow. These, with
the extreme hoarseness which troubles
him, will probably jjrevent his taking
an active part in the duties of his new
office for a week or so. The new en
voy is greatly pleased with Mexico.
Until the minister recovers from his
indisposition the legation remains

GUILTY OF MURDER.
Thomas C. Aughtry Convicted of K 111-
ing Conway B. Oliver.
Columbia, S. C., April 8.—The
trial of Thon:jis 0. Aughtry for the
killing of Conway B. Oliver ended
Saturday night in the conviction of
the defendant. The case i^ossesses
many points of interest. Oliver was*
a young white fireman in the employ
of the Southern railway. Aughtry
used to be mail carrier here. He is
said to have won the affections of
Oliver’s wife, and on that' account to
have left his wife. Just one month
ago yesterday Oliver was found shot
to death on the outskirts of the city.
He had returned from a visit up the
street to procure some eatables and
was on his way to his father-in-law’s
house to meet his wife.
The testimony at the inquest jjoint-
ed to Aughtry us his murderer and he
was arrested. Aughtry is a well-known
man with raven hair, i>iercing eyes and
the reputation of being dangerous.
The evidence against him was circum
stantial, there having been no witness
es to the deed. He was heard to say
on the day after the crime that Oliver
was no better than a d—d nigger and
a woman testified that he had 'told her
that he loved Oliver’s wife, and that if
she couldn’t do him any good she
should not do anybody else any good.
Several witnesses testified that on
the afternoon of the murder Aughtry
and Mrs. Oliver were together in the
woods near the scene of the crime.
Aughtry admitted having been with
some woman, but denied that it was
Mrs. Oliver. The witnesses testified
that the -noman had on a blue dress at
the time and the defense sought to
show that Mrs. Oliver had no blue
dress. The state overcame this by
producing the dress unawares. The
other damaging point against Aughtry
was his being seen in the neighbor
hood of the murder that evening with
The trial consumed all the week.
Fortune seemed to favor Aughtry, as
the chain of evidence was incomplete,
but the blue dress exhibited
worked against him. The jurors
were out four hours and at 8:30 o’clock
the result was declared. Augh-
try’s countenance never changed. A
poll of the jury showed one juror to be
in favor of a recommendation to mercy.
This, however, does not affect the
straight verdict of “guilty, ” as it was
not incorporated in the verdict and
was given only as this juror’s position.
A motion for a new trial will be made.
This is probably the first time a white
man has been found guilty of murder
in this county.
Interesting His Race.
Selma, Ala., April 8.—W. F. Crock
et, a young negro from Montgomery,
Ala., is in the city trying to work up
interest among the colored people in
the Atlanta exposition. He wants the
negroes to organize and show what
they have done in the way of develop
ing themselves. Crocket is an intelli
gent negro, and is working uji much
enthusiasm among the negroes here.
He goes from here to other cities in
the State, and is meeting' with
much success in his efforts.

“Castoria is an excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
good eflfeet upon their children.”
Dr. G. C. Osgood,
“ Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquamted. I hope the day is not
far distant wheu' mothers will consider the
real interest of their children, and use Castoria
instead of the various quack nostrums which
are destroying tjieir loved ones, by forcing
opitim, morphine, soothing syrup and other
hurtful agents down their throats, thereby
sending them to premature graves.”
Dr. j. F. Kincheloe,
“ Castoria is so well adapted to children that
I recommend it as superior to any prescription
known to me.”

Ill So. Oxford St., Brooklyn, N. Y.
“Our pl^icians in the children’s depart
ment have spoken highly of their experi
ence in their outside practice with Castoria,
and although we only have among our
medical supplies what is known as regular
products, yet we are free to confess that the
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon it.”
