Cromwell Shot at .Orange'r-ranger
* Fined. "
A1out 7 o'clock Saturday evening ,
Night Policeman Will Cromwell shot at
ex-Clty Marshal. JH. H ranger, in the
law office of J. A. Carlisle Tlhere 'was
much wild. talking and inainy cowlllltinti
stitetnentsabout thi affair during Satur-
day nilght and Sunday. After the shoot-
ing Gramnger' was arrested on a charge of
dru"kk and litsorderly conduct and putt in
jail, but was afterwards released on bond.
When the Mayor's court convened yes- .
terrday morning the court room was filled
with people of all colors and conditions,
and all anxious to hear what the witness
es had to say about it, and what'was

heard was substantially as follows:
There was 'a considerable amount co
evidence brought out. ime. witniesse
thought Granger was lrunk and other
didn't think he was.- Some swore lh
tried to pull lisa gun on Officers Pitikoso
and (Cromwell when they went to arres
h int after the shooting, and others di
not seen to know whether he dkl or not
Carlisle said Granger gaveI hiu sooit
whiskey, andil Granger. said that was truen
said. he brought two bottles from Palatk
for Carlisle McCreary said one f o th
bottles had a' hole" in one side of it-.
looked like it.liad been broken. Carlisl
said one of. the bottles ihad been broken
atnd most of the hiskey was lost
Granger swore he did. not try to draw hi
gun on Cromwell. but Cromwell swor
he did.
S it seems that' on .Saturday evening f1
fleer Cromwell saw a negro lstane
'"Shorty" carrying iut the dtreetion o
Carlisle's office a suspiclouss looking pack
age, and upon learning that the package
contained whiskey he asked where' th
negro was carrying it. "Carryiig lit t
Mr. Carlisle's office,." said the negro
"Who sent it?" said the officer; aad tthe
negro said Mr. Granger sent it- to Mr
It seems that Cromwell then went t
the door. of Carlisle's office, andl accord
ing to his statements said, "OentlemenI
want to see the lable on those bottles,'
.an as hbe said so he claims that Mr
Granger started to draw a pistol as he re
market: "You can see any any 4d---
thing in here," and then it was Mr
Cromwell .says. he drew his pistol' and
fired at ranger.
In the room with Granger were Messrs
Carlisle, H. H.' McCreary antd Will Suit
van, who is said to be on the Fernandina
police force. Sulivan was not detained
as a witness, but a large number of wit'
nesses were examined. Messrs Carlisle
and McCreary-were probably the uiost
important. They both swore they saw
Cromwell at the door, heard hint ask
about the bottles and heardThe shot fired,
They both seemed to think the shot was
fired immediately after asking about the
bottles, but neither of then would swear
positively that Granger did not attempt
to draw his gun on Cromwell-though
Mayor Thomas recalled them and ques-
tioned them particularly on that point.
Carlisle said hi shoved Cromwell out at
the door and Ltied to shut It, and Mc-
Creary said he got behind the door when
the shooting' commenced.
After hearing the evidence and duly
considering the same Mayor Thomas
found Granger guilty and fined him' ,5
and costs.
The city was represented by City At.
torney W. 8. Broome, and Attorney J.
M. Rivers appeared for the defendant.
Attorney Rivers gave notice tbat bis cli-
ent would take an appeal ftom the decis-
ion of the court.

The Hlissl tRegret.
A very amusing and characteristic
story of the late Princess Mathilde is
going the rounds. The Princess was
lining at the home of M. and Mme.
Ganderan with some of her most de-
voted frIends. At the hour set for din-
ner one of the guests, Oerome, the
great painter, had not arrived. They
halted a long time, and then suddenly
the Princess cried:
"By the way. I received a telegram
to-day from Gerome, who is in Cadim.
asking me to give his apologies for not
being able to come to-night"
"But. Princess," exclaimed Mme.
Ganderan. "why did you not tell us
nhout it earlier?"
"W.y. many dear,", returned the Prin-
cess. "I am Just beginning to feel hun-
gey." -

*WMI. .
r The unexplti'a lpeed in
politics this week, when C. M.
Brown announced himself in favor
of the nomination of. Bob Davi2 for
governor in the second primary.
Brown received about 0,000 votes
in the first primary, and it has all
along been supposed that he would
throw his Influence to BSEoWa4 int
the second race. The Davis pa-
pers have accepted tb 'ilew, and
discounted it Tn v0ai,4Jir stating
that most: of 'Bto'4" votes cane
from the old W .0 edcrate soldiers
*who coiled i0t bte "delivered" by
Brown or falyone else. What
intifletae Col. Brown's "flop" will
have remains to be seen.
Senator Brown must have .good
and sufficient, at least expedient,
reasons for his change of front-we
call it "flopping" in Vol'usia county,
where we have seen so much of it
in the past. But, considering that
he has just finished a six months'
tour of the State in which he told
the people to vote for him first, and
Broward second, it is certainly no
to Mr. Brown to tell why he has so
suddenly and unexpectedly' trans-
ferred his affections.
Come, Senator, out with it.-De-
Land News,
In Alachua county, the home of
the two candidates, where they are
best known, the vote. on the 10hi
Inst stood: W. N. Sheatq :t,022,
W. M. Holloway 576. That shows
what a mistake, was made by thdse
who voted, for Mr. Holloway.--
Punta Gorda Herald.
The Punta Gorda Herald has
been Insinuating that the editor of
THa STAR is not a very sound
Democrat, and now he shows his
want of Democracy by saying that
the majority made a mistake.
Brer Jordan is the kind of a Demo-
crat who believes that the majority
should rule. if it happens to agree
with him. His Democracy has
probably got the dry rot. He may
vote for the Democratic nominee in
November and may not.
"Peas up," Bro. Adrian, didn't
- you vote for Dr. Richmond -a Re-
putblican-when General Dickerson
was the nominee, in Lake county?
It is an albsurdity, and a reflect
tion upon the intelligence of thrt
men who voted for Mr. C. M
Brown in the first primary to say
that they will now support Mr.
Davis because Mr. Brown is sup-
1 porting him. Before the first pri.
Imary Mr. Brown was considered an
t anti-corporation candidate the sanit
as Mr. Broward was, and it wa-
I this fact that caused him to get a
handsome vote, but now since lie is
known to be supporting the Stand-
ard Oil Compaty's candidate tine
honest anti-corporation voter will
not take voting instructions from
him, but will vote for Napoleon B.
e Broward, who -is still sticking to
the principles advocated by hint
from the beginning, and which Mr.
t Brown advocated until he went to
Jacksonville and saw "Boh"--AND

promised the HeraLidu an a big 4ish
of "crow" on or about thii time.
As it has not yek been received, it
is to be inferred that Brer Godu in
had none to spare-needed it all for
himself. We trust he will eat it
like a man and with no-growling,
-Punta Gorda Herald.
What can Brer. Tordan mean
by the above? We certainly came
nearer to getting all we asked fr
iu the first primary than he did,
and we are certainly as sure of suc-
cess in the next primary as he can
bea To be sure, Brer. Jordan
hasn't been spiking his lemonade?

one of the four gubernatorial can-
didates voted for in the May 10th
primary, apd who Is now whooping
up the trust candidate-Mr. Davis
---and abusing the people's candi-
date-Mr. Browtld-has recently
received absme letters from some of
his old Confederate Veteran friends,
which must hav* made him feel
about asAmaU awthe little end of
nothing. Brown has acted in a
way that hap certainly humiliated
many of his old time friends, and
we predict that he will think so too
whelt the Davis vote is annouuce4'

made a great mistake when' be
flopped over to Davis. I am- a Da-
vis man from principle, but Brown
is pot, and the people know it.
There It certainly something wrong
somewhere,, and I believe Brown's
coiing to Davis in the way he has
cqme, .will do much more harm
than good. The people know
that Brown is not naturally for
Davis, and many of his old com-
rades are now ashamed of the way
he has acted." -

Napoleon B. Broward is actively
campaigning for the second primary
and his picture and anubuncement
are on 3d page. Mr. Broward is
not without strong grounds of con-
fidence of his ultimate success. He
had the highest vote for Governor
and expects the combined support
of the temperance people and the
anti-corporationists, and it is rea-
sonable to suppose that lie will get a
large majority of both of these
elements.-Nassau County Star.

Considering what it ihas seemed
to be, and what it now claims to
he, the Jacksonville Metropolis, is
the most disgusting paper we know
of today. And if there' is now a
man in Florida-living or dead -
who does not agree with uits, jt let
him whistle. If we had not beet
for Broward before, surely the re
cent cartoorts in the Metropolis
would have made its for litin We
don't know what the Metropolis
,'people ate receiving for their effort
to slander innocence, but they are
F probably being overpaid.
To talk about John Stocktont
"forcing a second prinimry oni Sen-
ator Taliaferro" is low and dirty.
The same. people who pretend to
censure him for entering the race a
second time would have no res.
pect for him should he fail to do so,
Stockton sadoing his duty and the
people know it. and o June 7
many who voted for Taliaferro iti
the first primary will vote for
Stockton because they have learned
something about the dishonorable
methods that have been employed
by the trust magnates against himnt
