    A MOST EXCITING CHASE KINSMEN GO WITH


    Bullets Flew Thick and Fast in Run-
    nsag Fight Through Streets--All
    Were Recapturec.

    In a desperate attempt to escape
    from the state penitentiary at Jeffer-
    son City, Mo., Friday afternoon, five
    convicts fought for freedom with
    weapons and nitro glycerine at the
    prison gate, killing two prison officers
    and wounding Deputy Warden See,
    and four men made a dash through
    the streets of Jefferson City under
    fire, only to be captured after two of
    the escaped men had been wounded.
    Five prisoners, taking advantage of
    the absence of Warden Hall and six
    guards, who left Friday morning with
    seventy-ono federal prisoners for Fort
    Leavenworth, Kans., attempted to es-
    cape, but only four left the prison
    after wrecking the gate.
    Convicts Harry Vaughan, Charles
    Raymond, Hiram Blake, George Ryan
    and Eli Zeigler, who were working
    close Inside the prison gate, having
    secured pistols and a bottle of nitro.
    glycerine, entered Deputy Warden R.,
    E. See's office and shot him in the
    arm as he sat in a chair. He sank
    back helpless and the convicts rushed
    to the gate, where they met Gateman
    John Clay. Before Clay could raise his
    weapon he was shot dead. The con-
    victs then rushed through the gate,
    dragging C!ay's body with them. They
    slammed the gate shut and fastened
    it. Zeigler was left Inside.
    The convicts placed nitro-glycerine
    under the outside gate and blew an
    opening through the steel doors. The
    four men crawled through this rupture
    and dashed through a number of
    "trusty" convicts who were working
    in the street.
    Almost before the four escaped con-
    victs had covered a block, prison of-
    ficlals were in pursuit, shooting ais
    they ran. The chase kept on for a
    dozvtn blocks, the convicts outrunning
    their pttr.ir!'s.

    ed that the company's finance com-
    mittee is believed to have Mr. Mc-
    Curdy's resignation under considera-
    tion. It was learned also that the

    the secretary, arofe and said he ob-
    jected to them as they were not cor-
    sect in their statement of his case.
    "I inJist," he sahi, "that the min.
    utes embody the fCets as they were.
    I Insint that the minutes record the
    fact that the commnlite appointed was
    a second committee, .nd that tile first
    committee found rll not guilty."
    The secretary st.atd that the min-
    utom wcid he corre'ct'(d. Not satisfled,
    however, Dr. Whimiworth aske-l how
    corrected. 'i he bishop then asked Dr
    Wadsworth to write out his correct.
    tUon s and give them to the irictary.
    The minutref were then correc:ted to
    his satisfaction.
    Dr. Wadsworth then came forward
    and stated that he wanted a ruling
    *rom the bishop on iwo points (if law.
    Addressing the his op, hle said: "The
    point Is: was It inot Irregular and
    against church law for Dr. J. W Qaol.
    Man not to answer ihen he reported
    for his conference y'oterday in regard
    to my name, 'no charge igalinst
    him?'"
    "And, second, an.1 after that, was
    It not contrary to Methodist liw andi
    precedent for the prsilding e'l'er to
    present to the coinferefnce the report

    Dr. Walrworth said he thought th,
    proceeodling; of the presiding elder in
    stating the matter as hel did to thi.!
    conference was unkind and unumuai.
    He suld thatt the' ipreuiding elder knew
    that the c(,rnnsittee'sm had found hivi
    not guilty, and that there wits no re,;.-

    Dr. Porter Praised.
    . Dr. Joseph Y. Porter, State Health
    Officer, has re-established headquar-
    ters in Jacksonville. For nearly
    three months Dr. Porter has been in
    PenSacola and la spite of adverse con-
    ditions, growing out of the failure of
    the people of that city to give him the
    proper support for several weeks after
    the appearance of yellow fever, he
    has won a most signal victory and e.-
    tabllshed beyond the shadow of a
    doubt that yellow fever is carried by
    mosquitoes, and, so far as is known.
    carried only by mosquitoes of the
    stegomyia species.
    Dr. Porter succeeded In completely
    stamping out yellow fever in Pensaco-
    la, and all quarantine restrictions
    against the city were recently raised.
    People can now come and go freely,
    without having to show identification
    certificates as to their whereabouts
    for the preceding ten days.
    The people of the entire State of
    Florida must acknowledge the execru-
    tive ability of Dr. Porter, as well as
    admire his medical skill and scienti-
    fic knowledge, for not only did he
    grapple with a disease that has always
    caused the utmost dread throughout
    the country and win a glorious vic-
    tory. but he succeeded in preventing
    a single case of yellow fever from de-
    veloping'at any point in the state out
    side the stricken city.
    The cordon established around Pen-
    sacola by the State Health Officer to
    protect the people of the remainder
    of the state was the most efficient
    ever maintained in the history of a
    yellow fever epidemic. No one was
    permitted to pass that cordon and
    enter any portion of the state, unless
    hle was an inimune. No shotgun
    1 quarantine of olden times was ever
    half so effective as that cordon around
    Pensacola.

    Good Showing for Florida.
    A bulletin on the manufacturing in-
    terests of Florida, Issued at Washing.
    ton a few days ago, by the Census
    Bureau, places the value of the man-
    ufactured products of the state for
    last year at $30,241,078, an increase of
    47 per cent since 1900. There are
    1,410 manufacturing establishments in
    the state, capitalized at $32,958,482,
    and employing 49.961 wage earners.
    who are paid $15.736.222 annually.
    The product of the principal articles
    manufactured was as follows last
    year: Tobacco, cigars and cigarettes,
    $16,764,276; lumber, $12.592,105; tur-
    pentine and rosin, $9,851,173.

    Although Isham Edwards was exe-
    cuted some three weeks ago, for the
    murder of N. W. Eppes, the pardoning
    board as yet has taken uo action in
    the case of George Caldwell and Nel-
    son Lurken, who are still confined in
    the Duval county jail at Jacksonville
    under sentence of death for the mur
    der. The case wan presented to the
    board before the execution of Ed.
    wards, but a decision was deferred
    until after the execution. Edwards
    confessed his crime and exonerated
    Caldwell and Larken.

    A general strike of the cigar u..k-
    ers in Key West was ordered a few
    days ago. Several conferences of the
    Manufacturers' Union and the Cigar-
    makers' Union were held. with no sat
    isfactory results. The differences are
    difficult ones to settle, and there may
    be a demand for a sympathetic strike
    of all the branches of labor, before
    the trouble is ended.

    A dispatch from Norfolk, Va., says:
    Commissioner Bowden of the United
    States court has finished compiling
    the testimony in the case of W. N.
    Camp of Florida, who owns 52.000
    acres of the land in the Dismal
    Swamp district, against the Lake
    Drummond Water Company, for $250,.
    (H*0 damages. The case will now go
    to the United States circuit court for
    hearing.

    Assistant Engineer Isaac Winston.

    Jim Crow Law Declared Valid.
    The now famous Jim Crow law
    passed by the Pensacola city council
    some weeks ago received its first test
    a few days ago before Court Commis-
    asuner Coaton and was held to be
    legal in every respect. As a conse-
    quence L. B. Croom, a negro preacher,
    who was arrested for violating the
    law, languishes in Jail and will re-
    main there for thirty days, having
    been sentenced by the lower court
    to serve this time for violating the
    law.
    The state law passed by the legisla
    ture separating the races was recent-
    ly declared unconstitutional by the
    State Supreme Court and soon after.
    ward the council of Pensacola passed
    an ordinance somewhat similar, only
    changing those portions which the qu-
    preme court had declared unconstitu-
    tional.
    The negroes of the city immediate-
    ly raised a fund to fight the law, and
    and one of their number. Rev. L. B.
    Croom, volunteered to violate the or-
    dinance in order to make the test. He
    did so, was arrested, sentence to their
    I'.' days at hard labor, and appealed
    the case, giving bond for his appear.
    ance.
    Recently, however, the colored peo-
    ple decided upon another move, hav-
    ing employed colored lawyers. The
    bondsmen of Croom surrendered him
    to the marshel of the city, and habeas
    corpus proceedings were Immediately
    instituted. The case came up for
    hearing a few days ago before the
    court commissioner, and later he ren-
    dered his decision, declaring the ordi-
    nance to the legal and remanding
    ('room to the custody of the marshal
    to serve the thirty dlys.i

    The following presentment of tthe
    grand jury of St. Johns as read in open
    court at St. Augustine, fully explains
    itself: "The grand jury in strong
    language c'ondenmns the present court-
    house, and the sentiment expressed
    by that august body is echoed by
    nearly every resident of St. Johns
    county. In the face of these strong
    condemnation proceedings, the author-
    ities of the county cannot avoid imme.
    diate action, and a new courthouse is
    practically assured. In fact, there Is
    talk that work on the new building
    may begin this winter. The improve-.
    ment cannot come too soon, according
    to the public opinion here."

    The contract has been let to the
    Viltner Manufacturing Company for ait
    ten-ton ice plant for Starke, to be in-
    stalled and in working order by March
    1, 19()6. The necessary amount of
    stock has been sold and cash paid In
    to warrant this step. The last four
    years has produced great results an
    Starke in the regard to public im
    provements. Telephone, electric
    lights. waterworks. long distance tel-
    ephone, and now comes an ice plant,
    and steam laundry. A spool cotton mill
    will be the next thing in order.

    Another business enterprise was or.
    ganized at West Palm Beach the past
    week, when the Florida Concrete Man
    ufacturing Company came Into exis-
    tence. The company will be Incorpor-
    rited with a capital stock of $10,000,
    and its object will be the manufacture
    of all kinds of cement blocks for
    buillding. paving and other purposes.

    ACTIVATED W. SLPFISHNUES.

    Attacel Upen Petent Medielne Made
    by Mon of Mereenary Mind.'
    No other buslaess of a legitimate
    character has ever been obliged to
    staad such unwarranted and vicious
    attacks as have been made on the
    "patent medicine" business by men
    of supposed and profersed intelli-
    gence and honesty, who have, In most
    eases, been actuated only by a desire
    to further their own selfish ends. The
    "patent medicine" business is one
    that had Its Inception in the dire
    necessity of the people, and one that
    has grown to its present magnitude
    by reason of the virtue of the prepara-
    tions It has put out. At the present
    time the "patent medicine" business
    represents the investment of many
    millions of dollars and the employ-
    ment of many thousands of men.
    The busin e of the "patent medi-
    cine" manufairers is to provide a
    s),tem of medication, for home use,
    that lacks nothing in efficacy when
    compared with doctors' remedies, for
    simple and familiar ailments, and
    which is, at the same time, within the
    financial reach of all.
    In the practice of medicine physi-
    clatni originated or assimilated many
    specific remedies. Sometimes the
    knowledge of speciltes was obtained
    from an old grandmother, who had
    practiced the healing art with roots,
    berba and barks. Some of them have
    been devised by the ingenuity of
    physicians, but many of them have
    been handed down from generation to
    generation. Those are the simple
    remedies in every-day use and in con.
    stant demand.
    These remedies were so constantly
    used that their efficacy became gen-
    erally known-they became the stand.
    yards of the medical world, the medi-
    cal staples, so to speak. Physicians
    who used them and who knew their
    result producing ability saw the de-
    mand for them and devised means
    for their wholesale manufacture In
    laboratories great enough to make
    economy and exactness possible.
    When the first physician started to
    manufacture more of a certain rem-
    edy than he needed for immediate
    use the "patent medicine" business
    was born, and with Its birth there
    came into existence the system of
    family medication that is now so gen-
    erally in vogue.

    There is no other medicine manufac-

    effective, and prompt relief follows its
    use. Grateful parents everywhere do
    not hesitate to testify to its merits for
    the benefit of others. It is a certain
    cure for croup and will prevent the at-
    tack if given at the first appearance of
    the disease. It is especially adapted to
    children, as it is pleasant to take and
    contains nothing injurious. Mr. E. A.
    Humphreys, a well known resident and
    clerk in the store of Mr. E. Lock, of
    Alice, Cape Colony, South Africa, says:
    "I have used Chamberlain's Cough
    Remedy to ward off croup and colds in
    my family. I found it to be very satis-
    factory and it gives me pleasure to
    recommend it." For sale by all drug-

    "It there is one thing more than an-
    other that makes me wild." said a
    member of the Mutual Improvement
    club to a friend, "it Is to have that
    Potter woman correct me when I Just
    make a slip of the tongue. Did you
    bear her say in that muperelllous wa7y
    of her.s. 'My dear. I'm sure you could
    not have meant that they had music
    "lKtw\eeU each niumber"-you meant
    between every two numiilers.' And
    every one near us beard what she said.
    the cat!"
    "Oh, I shouldn't mind her," said the
    other woman easily. "If you want
    revenge Just look at her with one of
    those short waited, pudgy daughters
    on either side at the assembly and not
    a man on the horaoun."
    "M-mn!" said the aggrieved one.
    "Yes, she does look funny; but, my
    dear, did you realize you said 'on
    either side' instead of 'on each side?'
    Of course If they were on either side
    they'd-well, they couldn't be. you setl
    I kndw you wouldn't mlud having me
    speak of it, for I've noticed you make
    that little error occasionally, and it*i

    The queeIn of IDeuatlrk once pail a
    visit to the Dauish colony of Iceland,
    where the good old bishop exerted him-
    self to the utmost to show her every-
    thing that was worth seeing. The
    queen plad many complements to her
    host. and having learned that he was a
    family man graciously inquired how

    us some fine samplesof sweet potatoes;
    but on Tuesday evening he brought to
    this office some very fine samples of his
    second crop of Irish potatoes, which
    were raised in his garden from culls of
    the first crop, which were fine and
    which we believe would find ready sale
    on any market. Dr. Gunn always has

    TO


    THE


    PUBLIC:


    It is our intention to conduct a first-class furniture business, and we ask a liberal share of your patronage.
    Our stock will be found to contain the latest novelties as well as all Standard goods. We are making preparations to be
    able to execute promptly any order we may receive for any kind of furniture, and house and office furnishings.
    "To fill a long felt want" we will inaugurate a repair department for high grade furniture, which will be in charge of one
    of the most skillful workmen obtainable.
    It would afford us great satisfaction to be able to announce a strictly cash, pay-as-you-go, policy; but it is our opinion that
    inla business the size of ours, in dear old Tallahassee, the plan would not work, still, the merchant who extends credit indiscriminately
    must either "lose out" or charge exhorbitant prices in order that the good customer shall pay the debts of the one who never pays.
    We may be beaten by some, but we intend to reduce to the minimum the number of those who buy goods on credit of us and never
    pay. Persons unknown to us must show us their ability and willingness to pay as agreed upon. By selling largely for cash and in-
    sisting upon a strict adherence to a careful credit policy we will be able to offer our goods at the lowest possible figures.
    To customers of small means, whose reputation and references show them to be worthy of it, we will extend the installment
    plan of purchasing.

    If we can offer you the best goods, the lowest prices and the most satisfactory service,
