the killing of William Callaway, near Gad

Callaway was under Indictment by the

of that county. Callaway was a desperate
character, mid had boasted that he would
not submit to arrest The Sheriff and his
deputy, Mr. AL J. Williams, of Gaddistowu,
determined to execute the warrant, how
ever, ami took steps to do so. Each of
three o(H rers summoned a small josse aid
prooeeerirti to tite residence of Callaway.
Deputy William- was first on the ground,
a:ul found Callaway and two of his sms at
work in a field, all heavily armed. On
going up tliey wore wxhi discovered by Cal
la way, who. Instead of surrendering as he
was orderoi to do, commenced firing on the
deputy with a pistol. William- returned
the fire, but without effect. Callaway then
made for and suivecded in getting hold
of a shotgun, and was ui the very act of

A few weeks ago tre City Council author
rod the Finance Committee to sell 1,100
shares of gas stock, or a sufficiency to
reolt.' iAittX toe the purpose of building
a high school. It was estimated that this
air-xint of stock was about sufficient to
roaiire the raaiaFsum. This action was
:t*-rlv •'.'!>vsl by Mr. Mceaslin, the Secre
t. v and Treasurer of t lie ga* company, who
- isv an Aki-vman. It ha? been the’policy
of tho gns company to oppose any action
: t:v Council toward the
of any of the city's stock in the com
pany. A few days ago the company de
clared a st-s-k dividend of 50 per cent, and
a cash dividend of 4 per rent. It has been
claimed that the company was not making
excessive profits. Indeeii, with gas down to
fla thousand, it was said it could barely
earn a dividend on its present stock. The
issue of 50 per cent additional stock therefore
ex uted comment. A member of the Coun
cil said: “It looks like it was a flank move
ment to defeat the purpose of the City
C unci!. Under the resolution, not more
than I.IGI shares of the stock can be sold.
With tit-' capital increased bv 50 per cent,.
Lit** shares will not bring $25,000, and the
g-nerai impression of the Council is that
toe 'company has taken this method
to defeat, or at least to postpone,
the purpose of the Council
in appropriating so much of the stock for
the erection of a high school building. It
is true," said Mr. Meeaslin when asked con
cqpning the stix-k dividend, “that at the
company's meeting on last Monday we made
the issue of stock spoken of. We did it be
cause we had spent upon improvements
aNvut the works fully as much as the divi
dond amounted to, and probably more too.
That money belonged to the stockholders
and we gave it back to them in stock. The
ideo that this was done to thwart, if possible,
the saw of the city’s gas stock ter high
school purposes is preposterous. I don't
see what possible connection the gas com
pany has with the common schools, and that
subject was not mentioned at our meeting. "
