DEED H. MEYER, Editor.
FRIDAY. OCTOBER 17, 1884.
Greer County has a new town
named after Cogressman Lanham.
The annual state fair will be
held in Austin commencing De-
cember 2 and continuing six days.
Mrs. E. A. Jones, wife of Hon.
E. A. Jones member of thefiaw
firm of Jones & Kendall, Waco,
committed suicide by cutting her
throat last Sunday morning. No
cause is given for the act but ill
We received this week a copy
of the Firm Foundation, a Maga-
zine published at Austin under the
management of Rev. A. Gary, a
minister of the Christian Church
and in the interest of which dem-
nomination the magazitae is pub-
lished. It is neatly gotten up and is-ft1,""1" cm'uul
full of good reading matter. Rev. a11 lnterestcd
J.W. Jackson, of Breckinridge, is
one of the assistant editors.
A most horrible crime came to
light near Troy Indiana last Fri-
day. StillwelU Hendershot, as-
sisted by his eldest son killed his
wife and completely severed the
head from the body, throwing the
body in a well and hiding the
head in the bushes near where the
crime was committed. The fath-
er and ion were arrested and con-
fined in jail and on the same night
a mob of about two hundred
strong entered the jail and took
the son out and hung him. The
father had been carried to another
jail and confined, but it is said
tlat an effort *will also made to
deal out summary justice to him,
a refusal on the part of the wife
to sign * deed of property which
belonged to her in fee simply is
said to have caused them to com-
mit the crime.
As was announced Hon. Mr.
Lanham addressed the people of
our county on Wednesday night
in Shield's hall. After being in-
troduced by our fellow townsman,
Mr. John M. Moore, Mr. Lanham
reviewed briefly his work in con-
gress, particularly Buch as 'per-
tained to Western Texas. There
was quite; a refreshing difference
in the way the speaker expressed
his views on the tariff question,
and the manner in which some
other speakers have addressed
Albany audiences within the last
fortnight. Mr. Lanham after
stating that he believed in'a re-
duction of the present tariff, told
hie hearers plainly that if his
views were not in accord with the
views of a majority of the people
of the district, that they would
have to elect some one else to rep-
resent them. Altogether the
speech was well received and cr«-
atod a good impression.
At the conclusion of Mr. Lun-
ham's speech Attorney-General
Templeton, who is supposed to
reflect the views of the state ad-
ministration, spoke far about an
hour and a quarter and endeavored
to show that a loase law was what
our people needed. Mr. Temple-
ton was listened to patiently, but
at tho same time it was evident
that he was not endorsed in this
In regard to the number of cat-
tle driven out of the state of Tex-
as, a correspondent writing from
Doan's at the Red river crossing
of tho Dodge City trail, saysth^
up to date there have crossed at
that place 153 herds, containing
3!H,227 head, not counting horses.
He has kept a record since 1877,
and says the smallest drive over
this trail was in 1869, when only
110,000 JMSttd cikw.L ' n
k close attention, as
attends their climatization.
It has long since been acknoiwl
edged that good stock will do ai
well in Western Texas as m any
of the older states, and no one
will deny that the introduction of
fine horses, cattle and sheep qow
will in a very few years add im-
measurably to the wealth of Shack-
elford county. We have always
been opposed to the lease law and
its opperations, but we believe
that when a man buys laud he has
a right to fence it -and put it to
such us* as he sees proper. a.«
much so as the horse or cattle man
has a right to round up hi3 horses
or cattle and sell them.
The introduction of fine stock
by the Norman horse company
was really the first venture of this
kind attempted in this county,
and it was followed by other par-
ties, namely, Messrs. I. M. Chism,
Stuart Johnson, G. E. Waters and
many others who have recently
had fine stock shipped in from
Kentucky, Ohio, Illinois and oth-
er states, and many more would
follow the example of these gen-
tlemen if it were not for fear of
having their fences cut. Instead
of intimidating parties who come
here with the intention of em-
barking in this enterprise we
should encourage"them. We are
in the growth and
development of Shackelford coun-
ty. We can say however to those
who contemplate fencing land and
going into the rearing of fine stock
that their property will in the f u
ture be protected. Every good
citizen must raise his voice in fa
vorof law and order. Public sen-
timent will govern in this matterl
and we feel assurred it is against
the destruction of property.
THE RESULT OF THE OHIO ELECTION.
Thfet Ohio has gone republican
there is no doubt, but the exact
majority can not now be stated,
It will probably not be less than
ton thousand, and may run to
fourteen thousand, but even if
it does it indicates a democratic
victory in Novembet. We have
stated it heretofore that everthing
less than twelve thousand majority
for the republican ticket would
have no effect],in the election for
President. And now with a ma-
jority of only half that number,
after the superhuman effort of the
republican party to carry the state
it cannot be taken as anything but
an indication of defeat in Novem
Cincinnati, Oct. 15.—Both the
democratic and republican press
this morning agree that yesterday
election in Cincinnati was the
bloodiest ever held here. The
democratic papers assert that the
thosand deputy marshals employed
were engaged mainly in intimida
ting honest voters, while the re-
publicans press construes the con-
duct of the police force and dep-
uty sheriffs in a similar manner
comparing it to the Miasisppi pol-
Cleveland, October 15.—(mid-
night)—The republicans, now that
the returns are all in, are begin-
ning to exhibit considerable dis-
satisfaction at the result of the
elections in Ohio. The truth is,
they have suffered a severe defeat,
and although they have exhibted
their supremacy on the local issue
of the present fight, is it a notori-
ous fact that the democratic tidal
wavo has reduced their majority
so successfully that their leaders
may well exclaim: "Another
such victory [as yesterday] and
we are lost!" The radicals them-
selves concede the democrats elev-
en congressmen out of the twenty-
two elected, and two or three are
still in doubt. The only thing the
domocrats have cause to regret in
the election just closed is the de-
feat of Frank Hurd in the tenth
congressional district. This is
really a severe blow to the party,
but in every other respect the dem-
ocrats have a clear gain. The re-
publican majority is everywhere
cut down to such an extent as to
make the state absolulely certain
for Cleveland 4nd Hendricks next
month. At radical headquarters
considerieg the fact that their Jast
majority was 20,000—1 think the
domocracy of Ohio have fought a
noble battle in the struggle just
closed, and given a good earnest of
what they will do when they are
relieved, jas they necessary will be,
of all those harrassing agencies in
the presidential fight.
Republican congressmen have
been elected in the 1st, 2d, 8th,
9th, 10th, 12th, 14th, 18th, 19th'
and 20th districts; total. 10*.
Democratic congressmen have
been elected in the 3d, 4th, 5th,
6th, 7th, 13th, 15th, 16th, 17th,
and 1st; total, 10, The 8th and
11th districts are still in doubt.
Colutpbus, Oct. 15.—A dispatch
from Toledo sayi Hurd concedes
the election of Ramis, republican,
to congress in the 10th district.
An explosion of dynamite in
the parliament building at Que-
beck on Saturday damaged the
building to the amount of $25,000.
No one injured.
Why he Rebelled
Some years ago a detachment of
United States artillery was sta-
tioned at Hot Springs,to care for
the public property, the Supreme
Court having decided that tho
Springs belonged to the United
States. One day one of the de-
tachment fell ill and was ordered
by the surgeon to "take a hot bath
and drink the water," meaning
the Sulphur Spring water. He
went to one of the bath houses
where a bath was prepared for
him, and ho was left to enjoy the
1 uxury. After the usal time elaps-
ed the attendant went in to see
how he was getting along. He
found the soldier sitting on the
edge Sof the tub much swollen
about the waist and the water re-
du ed about one-half. The at-
tendant asked him how he was
getting along. The soldier repli-
"Pretty well. I enjoyed the bath
but," he added, as a look of de»'
pondent determination settled ov-
er his countenance, "I'll be dog-
goned if I drink all that water,
not even if they put me in the
guard house for it."
They were expecting the min-
ister to dinner,
"Is everything all ready my
dear ?' asked the head of the house
"Yes, he can come now as soon
as he likes.'
"Have you dieted the family

A sad occurrence is casting a
gloom over our community. Mr.
Will Donohue, well known as a
quiet industrious young man was
in attendance upon a series of
meetings conducted by Mr. Ezoll.
He professed conversion on Sun-
day night Sept. 28th, and night
after night remained sleepless un
til his excitement attracten atten-
tention. Efforts were made to
quiet him, but in vain. On Fri-
day of last week he became so de-
ranged as to require constant
watching. He is still declining in
physical and mental strength, and
even his life is despaired of. His
i^tve been notified of his
, but i> an old Texan
having resided in Southern Texas
ever since 1850. He is a native
of Germany, and the last three
winters has been to Germany as
an evangelist and during the
present year has labored chiefly in
Russia, spending the month of
January in St. Petersburg. Last
week he came up here on a flying
visit to his friouds at Ft. Griffin,
and expected to remain only a day
or two and expressed his willing-
ness to preach one night at Albany
on his return. His friends, how-
ever would not let him leave Ft.
Griffin so hastily, but set him to
work preaching every night, be-
ginning on Thursday night and
closing Sunday night, during
which time quite a number pro-
fessed conversion, six of which
were baptised Sunday afternoon
in the presence of a large congre-
Mr. Keifer received a pressing
invitation to return to Ft. Griffin
at his earliest convenience. At
present he is on his way to Kan-
sas where he is expected to hold
some German meetings.
