will meet today for the first time after
having meen married over the long
distance telephone in the drug store of
A. G. Goetz, Dayton, Ky. They had
never seen each other before. The
telephone charges were 923. The con-
tracting parties were Mrs. Gertrude Gal-
lagher, a young widow of Dayton, and
Theodore Cohen, a merchant of Hop-
kinsville, Ky. The bride, accompan-
ied by her father, sister and many
guests, entered the store and request-
ed the use of the telephone. The party
took seats around the telegraph booth,
the Rev. R. D. Harding took the re-
ceiver from the hook and asked for

swered. The minister propounded the
usual questions to the bridegroom, who
evidently gave satisfactory answers.
The ceremony occupied fifteen min-
The bride was ushered into the booth
pounded by the minister at the other
end of the telephone. The courtship
had been carried on by correspond-

The Greatest Reunion Ever Held Now
In Full Blast.
4 4UMBER 200.
Dellas, Tex., April 22.—The tweltb
annual Confederate reunion began in
Dallas at noon today under circum-
stances the most propitious. It was a
magnificent scene that greeted the eye.
The great auditorium, filied almost
tc suffocation with eager, bustling hu-
manity, was prettily decorated with in-
tertwined flags of the two unions that
once rushed at each other’s throats,
but are now reunited and one. The
gray-clad veterans, the pretty spon-
sors and their maids of honor, the
gaily decorated officers of the Sons of
the Confederacy, the thousands of
spectators who do not belong to any of
these organizations, the crashing mu-
sic and the thousands of other things
that went to make up the great throng,
told a story that must have been seen
to be properly appreciated. On the
.platform sat the governors of Texas
and Louisiana, the latter accompanied
-v. by hii^j^ff, the lieutenant governor of
and answered the usuW^Sbwk* rt-TJ***-»-**. «»d many others of prom-
inence. But It was the prominent gen-
erals and the bonnie maids to which
the eyes of the multitude most fre-
General Stephen D. Lee, General W.
L. Cabell, General K. M. Van Zandt
and the indefatigable adputant general
of the organization, General Moorman,
all commanded much attention. And
when the commander-in-chief came,
what a fitting climax the cheers and
^itiiuaiasm of his old comrades made.
The great gathering has happily be-
gun and it Is expected to continue as
it commenced. The Confederate vet-
erans meet this year in a land full of
memories dead to every Southerer’s
heart. All this Bplendid empire on
which they stand was won by the same
spirit that followed the stars and bars
to Gettysburg and Chlcamauga. Liber-
ty lovers everywhere revere the name
of Texas. She has won for civiliza-
tion, after a struggle that gave the
world a new example In martyrdom,
the Goliad, the Alamo and San Jacinto,
which will live in history while fame
her record keeps. And it is not alone
tc these that Texans point with pride.

The War Department Tells Him to
Shut His Mouth.
Washington, April 23.—Gen. Funston
was officially reprimanded for public-
ly saying that Senator Hoar was “af-
flicted with an overhead conscience.”
He was also order to cease discuss-
ing the Philippines publicly.
The war department makes public
the following letter:
War Department.—I am directed by
the president to instruct you that he
wishes you to cease further public dis-
cussion of the situation in the Philip-
pines, and also to express his regret
that you should make a senator of the
United States an object of public crit-
icism or discussion. Very respectfully,
William Cary Sanger,
Acting Secretary of War.
A WINCHESTER’S DEADLY WORK.
An Infuriated Negro Kills Two Women
And One Man Near Axteil
Waco, Tex., April 23.—A Winchester
in the hands of an infuriated negro got
in its deadly work near Axteil yester-
day afternoon. Tom McClellan be-
came enraged at the Thompson family
and came near exterminating them.
The father and one son saved them-
selves by running but the mother and
another son were shot to death. The
dead are Millie Thompson, aged 55;
Allen Thompson, aged 25, and Mattie
Shannon, aged 35. It seems that Me
Clellan was living with the Shannon
woman, but she left him and went
over to the Thompson’s who said they
would protect her from any harm. The
Thompson negroes live on Mrs. Bar-
ron's place about one and a half miles
east of Axteil. To this place McClel-
lan went with a Winchester on his
shoulder and murder in his heart. He
shot and killed the two women and the
man, and fired on the elder Thompso^
and his son as they ran away.
After he did the shooting he left but
officers went in pursuit, Deputy Sheriff
Lee Davis left for the scene of the
murders at an early last night, and
before leaving telephoned to all sta-
tions near Axteil to have posses or-
ganized to assist him in capturing Me-

Oil Suit Filed.
Austin Tex., April 23.—Suit was fil-
ed In the Twenty-sixth district court
this afternoon by J. J. Snouffer, Jr.,
against Charles E. Anderson and the
Beaumont National bank on contract
for $12,500. The plaintiff alleges in his
petition that he entered into an agree-
ment with Anderson on April 26, 1901,
wherein plaintiff was to execute to him
a deed to ten acres of oil land situated
in the Iowa colony, in the Bullock sur-
vey in Jefferson county for 912,500. He
did execute the deed and the money
was placed in escrow in the Beaumont
National bank, but that the defendant,
he alleges, conspired with the bank to
prevent him from collection the
amount and for which he now sues.
