Carthage, Tex., Oct. 5.—A verdict
of not guilty was brought In this af-
ternoon by the Jury in the trial of
Dr. PauK charged with the murder
of C. B. Short last year at Centei,
This case haa attracted wide atten-
tion In this section of the state. It
grew out of the attempt of Short to
protect a negro who was being
searched for by the officers.
And Must be Either Accepted or Re-
jected Without Farther
When the local interurban commit-
tees met together yesterday for a con-
ference, not much time or discussion
was found neceasary to bring the
gentlemen to about this realisation:
That the last word of the St. Louis
people before leaving Saturday nigbt
for home clearly Indicates that the
local people must get together with-
out further much delay, and either
accept or reject the proposition.
Consequently, the chairman of the
committee, Mr. Wm Ginnuth, was in-
structed to communicate with Waco
and Marlin to arrange for a joint
meeting on the proposition. Mr.
Ginnuth was busy with the matter
until a late hour yesterday; and said
that definite arrangements had been
perfected to hold a meeting of the
citizens from each of the three places
mentioned tomorrow (Wednesday)
night at 7:30 o'clock, at Waco.
All of the locally mentioned di-
rectors in the proposed company and
ibe local committee, together prob-
ably, with a number of other citi-
zens. will attend the meeting from
here; some going in auto cars and
others via the Katy railroad. Mean-
while. it i> preferred by the commit-
teemen to not have published any of

TIKE-LOOT FOR CROSSING
LIGHTS ENDS TOMORROW.
The last dey of grace for installing
lights over the crossing of several
avenues and the M. K. and T. tracks
expires tomorrow, as fixed by City
Attorney Lemly under instructions of
the council. The material for the
lights have not been received: and
St. Louis officials (to whom the mai-
ler was referred) have not been heard
from. Consequently, Agent White's

it seems, it's up to him to go to jail
Meanwhile residents in North and
East Temple are of the opinion thct
a light is needed at the Downs Ave-

where, since at that point, there are

Is it to come to pass that the Tern-

Heretofore, the library building has
been used, and the ladies of the Asso-

have declared themselves undesirous

even further, and slfttad the Stags

is neceasary for such an event, has

Chicago, 111., Oct. 5.—Returning to
Chicago today to take up democratic
campaign direction in the west, Nor-
man E. Mack, chairman of the demo-
cratic national committee, declared
the tide is strong for Bryan in the
east, and if the democrats hold ad-
vantage there the democratic ticket
will surely be elected.
To the Associated Press represen-
tative Chairman Mack said on his ar-
rival here today: ,
I have been three weeks in the
east, where 1 studied the political
situation from every angle. I noted
every drift and current, and today
1 am prepared to say if we hold the
steady gains we have made in the
last two months the election is ours.
New York is going democratic; in
fact there will be a landslide for
Bryan in the entire state. New Jer-
sey, Rhode Island, Maryland, Dela-
ware and Ohio will also be found in
the democratic column. Indiana is
safely democratic; even the republi-
cans don't claim it."
Mr. Mack said that President
Roosevelt's letter will help the demo-
Stated to have been a result of a
disagreement previously growing out
of a horse trade, a cutting affray

withheld from this report at the ea»-

friends, destring that until after the
seriousness of the injuries can be
better known, his family be not ap-

in charge of Dr. R. W. Barton, who
afterward reported the injuries quite
serious, tho not necessarily fatal.
Mr. T. W. Woods, of near Heidei -
heimer surrendered to Policemen Geo.

him over to Constable R. L. Cooper.
After hearing from the hospital of

was furnished satisfactorily, pending

Whv Colds Are Danseroos.
Because you have contracted or-
dinary colds and recovered from them
without treatment of any kind, do
not for a moment Imagine that colds
are not dangeroua. Everyone knows
that pneumonia and chronic catarrh
have their origin In a common cold.
Consumption Is not cauaed by a cold
but the cold prepares the system for
the reception and development of the
germs that would not otherwise have
found lodgment. It ia the Rame with
all Infectious diseases. Diphtheria,
scarlet fever, measles and whooping
cough are much more likely to be
contracted when the child has a cold.
You will see from this that more real
danger lurks In a cold thaa In any
other ot the common ailments The
easiest and quickeat way to cure a
cold is to take Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. The many, remarkable
curea effected by thla preparation
have made It a staple article of trade
over a large part of the world. For

Strong's defiance to anti-prohibition
supporters and the democratic state

abandoning the submission of the
prohibition proposition and to favor
statutary prohibition enactment by
the next legislature is alarming the
antis here, who realize that the move-
ment is shrewd and hard to combat.
This makes the anti-prohibition con-

RETAIL MERCHANTS ASSOCI-
ATION HELD MEETING
The regular monthly meeting of the
Retail Merchants Associat^n was
held last night in Judge John L.
Ward's office; vice-president A! J.
Jarrell in the chair.
Following the reading and approv-
al of the minutes of the last meeting
Secretary Spencer read a communi-
cation from Wm. Brewer of Cleburne,
State President, calling attention of
this Association's arrears for Nation-
al dues. It was decided to hold the
matter in abeyance until after the
pure food show and probably to re-
mit from the proceeds.
By a unanimous vote, article 5;
section 5, of the by-laws was strick-
en out. This made compulsory upon
a member to discharge an employe
who persistently refused to pay his
honest accounts. It was the sense
of the meeting that this might be lu
conflict with the atti-trust laws.
Secretary Spencer reported gratify-
ing progress of the arrangements for
the pure food exhibition in Novem-
ber. More than fifty per cent of the
booths have been engaged by exhi-
bitors, and the local jobbers and re-
tailers are in correspondence with
other manufacturers whose products
seek popularity in this market; and
it is anticipated that all of the
booths will be filled for the show.
He says that the Association is alrea-
dy clear of the initial exepnae, by the
sale of the booths already spoken for.
Secretary Spencer called attention
to the need for receiving thru the
members prompt reports on all new-
comers to the city; also reports on
"changes in credit ratings." In
the last respect, he says, it has fre-
quently been found that a man with
good rating may, later on, merit
one not so good. It was the sense
of the meeting that both of these
details should be constantly born in
mind by the members and their co-
operation had, since unquestionably,
both are matters of necessity for mu-
