Quilt of Howard Little Thought to
Be Established,
Bluefleld, W. Va.-The guilt ot
Howard Little, who was arrested
aldout a week ago, charged with the
murder of "Aunt Betsy" Justls, Geo.
A. Meadows and wife and three chil-
dren, seems now to be 'established
beyond a reasonable doubt.
His wife confessed to having wash-
ed his bloody clothing the day after
the murder, and in her affidavit she
says also that he left their home
about dark on'the night of the mur.
der and returned the next morning
with his clothes all bloody and torn
and said that he would kill her if
she told anything about his condition.
He borrowed a 32-calliber revolver
a few days before the crime was
committed, and returned it on the fol-
lowing Wednesday with two chamb.-
ers empty. The body of George
Meadows was exhumed, and two bul-
lets taken from it by Drs. Richard-
son and White, were almost identi-
cal with the balls taken from shells
belonging to the weapon Little had

Cotton Crop Condition for'the Month
pf B*ptqrtber.
ew Orleans.-Takilg the cotton
belt as a whole, thbre has been no
marked change, and the change, it
any, has been toward further deterio.
ration, according to the Times-lemo-
' crat's cotton crop bulletin for ; the
month of September.
Continuing the bulletin says:
"The storm of September 20 did
great damage in the districts, which
came within its sweep. Picking has
made rapid progress and there is
generally an abundance of labor for
this purpose. Farmers seem disposed
to sell at current prices, at least
enough to pay their debts, but a con.
siderable part of the crop is likely to
be held for an advance later on. The
boll weevil has wrought havoc in cer.
tain sections, but the Intense heat
minimized the loss from this peat."

Justice Gaynor Named For Mayor
of Greater New. York.

Tammany Cohorts Were Se Strong
That They Easily Overrode Oppo-

sition Faction, Headed by
Senator Patrick McCarren.


New York.--Justice William Jay
Gaynor, of the New York state su-
preme court, was nominated for may-
or of Greater New York by the de-
mocratic city convention.
The nomination was made with a
great demonstration of enthusiasm,
and by a unanimous vote. Tammany
had Its own way, which initiates the
democraic campaign for the control
of the city government for the next
four years. Of the 1,679 delegates
represented, Tammany had control,
to all intents and purposes, of almost
the entire representations of the bor-
oughs of Manhattan and the Bronx,
mustering 918 votes,
The Tammany cohorts were so
strong that they overrode with ease
the opposition, faction headed by
State Senator Patrick H. McCarren,
oi Brooklyn, who hoped to secure the
renomination of Comptroller Mets, of
that borough. The convention nonim
inated for this office,, Robert M.

Trust company, the Tammany selec-
In the mayoralty fight, Justice Gay-
nor's chief opponent will fe% Otto T.
Bannard, president of the New York
Trust company, who was nominated
by the republicans a few days ago,
and who has some assurances of sup-
port from the fusionists. There yet
remains the possibility that the Inde.
pendence League will make the con.
test a triangular one by naming a
separate ticket.
The platform adopted by the demo.
cratic convention dealt broadly with
national, state and municipal ques.
tons, denouncing the recent terti
fegfsiation, and objecting to any leg-
islative interference th local affairs
by the state legislature.

It Is due to the heroic and unselfish work of every one of these men
that we were able yesterday morning to resume the operation of ears on the

these meu publicly for their unselfish work in our behalf.
Tonightwe expect to furnish current for street lights and stores through.
out the entire length of Du.vl St:, and some adjacent territory, The re

member that each of'our six lighting circuits must be cleared up separately,
Ind that thoie circuits serving the greatest number of customers and those
easiest to clear up, must be taken first. The work has been expedited to-
day by the arrival of an additional force of linemen, metermen and oarpen.
