flMAT IMMIGRATION ENTER-
Jremltiont Men Intcrcitid in the
South' "United in an Organttn
The remarkable southward trend of
population which is nofr attracting at
tcntion throughout the entire country
which during the last five or six months
with but little organized effort has re-
sulted in many thousands of Northern
and Western people settling in the
south and "which promises to become
one of the greatest movements of popu-
lation ever s:en in this or any other
country has emphasized thti impor-
tance of some strong well-managed
company operating on a very broad
and comprehensive scale undertaking
the work of handling this immigration
' business and in connection with that
the securing of capital at home and
abroad for investment in the south.
With these objects in view the South-
cm Immigration Land & Title Co. has

the south. It is the purpose of the
company to secure a eood class of
settlers from the north and west where
there are many thousands anxious to
remove to the south and also to bring
into the south thebetter class of foreign
emigrants to colonize large tracts of
land to find buyers for southern
mineral and timber properties and to
investigate and where necessary per-
fect titles to southern linds. This
company will have the hearty co-operation
of southern railroads. ""It must
become a potent factor in the advance-
ment of the south and be the great
medjum for bringing together the
south's unequaled opportunities for the
setder and the investor ami the north
and west's surplus population and
capital seeking the most profitable
field of employment. The president
of the company is Hon. Chauncey F.
Slack of Pennsylvania; first vice-president
Mr. Julian S.Carr the millionaire
tobacco manufacturer of Durham. N.
C; second vice-president Mr. M.
Erskine Miller of Stanton probably
the largest individual coal land owner
in the Virginias: third vice-president

ment. Among the directors are Hon

Tyler Tex. Ma? a6 Last night
past the hour o( midnight the neigh-
borhood of Marvin clitirrn in this city
was startled by three or four pistol
shots ringing out of the peaceful home
of Mrs. Maiy X'attcrsOn. The sequel
wail that Jbe Garrett a brother of Mrs
Patterson had fired two pistol balls
into the body ot his brother-in-law
W. H. Mugford. The condition of
the wovlnded man is criticle.
Immediately after the shooting Mr.
Garrett made a statement to the effect
that the shooting grew oat of family
trduble; that on entering the home Of
his sister he found Mr. Mugford there;
that the latter had been forbiden to
enter the house; that on seeing him
there he told Mugford to throw up his
hands; that at this Mustard threw his
hands in his hip pockets and that he
Air. Mugford corroborates Garrett
to the extent of being ordered to
throw up his hands; but says that the
shooting was unprovoked. He says
that he and Joe had been good friends;
and at their last meeting before the
shooting they parted on very friendly
terms; that he was surprised to re-
ceive the command to tnrow up his
hands and started to run on receiving
it; that Mrs. Patterson ran 'between
them imploring her brother not tq
shoot and that Joe ignored her appeal
ana nrea two snots into ms oack as
he turned to run.
A News reporter called to see Mrs.
Pattersoi this morning for a statement
and was informed by one of her chil-
dren that she was tn bed sick. He
also addressed her a note later in the
day requesting a statement to which
she replied: " I feel too unable to make
any statement at present."
Mr. Mugford has always stood well
where and has for vears been in the em
ployment of the Cotton Belt.
Mrs. Patterson is a most amiable
iady who in her effo-t to raise her fam-
ily since her husband's death has won
the esteem of all who know her.
The prisoner her brother after the
shooting gave .himself up to the police.
This morning he waived an examining
