SMITH LEADERS RESENT EVEN SUGGESTION Of BOLTING PRIMARY The man who discovered that the friends of Governor Hoke Smith would not support Joe Brown in the regular lection as against Yancey Carter, the Independence J-eague candidate, is getting the horselaugh for having unearthed the largest political “marc’s nest” of the year. The adherents of the governor positively refuse to become interest ed over the effort to stir up trouble. From the way administration men in the senate and house talk, such a thought an disloyalty to the par ty’s nominee has never occurred to them. ______ Twelve Men Killed as Result of Joke. Sedalia, Mo. —Five additional deaths as a result of an explosion of black powder at Windsor oc curred today. This brings the total dead up to twelve. Among those who died today was Conductor Hershberger, who, according to testimony brought out at the in quest, threw the match which caused the explosion- Ten others injured are reported as showing im provement.

Alexandria, La. —Mrs. Bonita Schwartzenberg, a handsome young widow, has been fined $1 and cost in the mayor’s court at Pineville, La., for horsewhipping the Rev. H. C. Wroten, a young Baptist pre acher of that town. Mr. Wroten stood calmly in the main street of the town and received the whipping without a murmur. His wife stood near him and when Mrs. Schwart zenberg had exhausted herself ap plying a Irrge buggy whip, the minister and his wife proceeded on their way. Mrs. Schwartzenberg says she whipped Mr. Wroten because he he had scored her in a sermon. The minister denies that any part of his sermon had any reference to the young widow. He declined to appear against her in court. Gwinnett to Hold fair. Lawtenceville —The farmers of Gwinnett are preparing fora coun ty fair, to be held the 28th, 29th and 80th inst. The movement is backed bv the Farmers’ Union, and they have enlisted the aid of Major W. E. Simmons, who has consid erable experience in conducting county fairs.

NO CONVICT AGREEMENT Governor Smith Galls Warring Fac tions Together, But Result Seems a Dog-Fall. The extra session of the legisla ture has most the state of Georgia in the neighborhood of $35,000, and it seems we are no nearer a so lution of the convict question than when it was called. Relative to the juggling of the two bodies of the general assembly The Constitution of this morning says: “Governor Smith last night called a conference of the leaders of the legislature at the mansion at 8:30 o’clock for the purpose of harmonizing, if possible, the two branches in an effort to get a con vict measure passed so that the extra session might be adjourned. Those invited to the conference weie president James J. Flint, of the senate, with Senators Felder, Martin, Farmer and Stephens, Speaker John M. Slaton, of the house, and representatives Holder of Jackson, Wise of Fayette, Jones of Merriwether, and Taylor of Sumter. “The party met in front of the Aragon and went to the executive mansion on time. They remained until nearly midnight discussing the convict measures proposed and disposed. “The house committee on peni tentiary and penitentiary matters, forty strong, gathered at the capi tol at 7 p. m- for the purpose of receiving the report of the subcom mittee from that committee to whom the “twenty seven” senate bill, recently passed by the senate, had been referred. “It was thought the committee could report to the house committee, who would be able to present a re port to the house this morning, hut they announced they could not re port during the evening, so a meet ing was called for 8 a. m., when the house committee will wrestle with the senate measure. “The subcommittee meeting was executive and nothing would l>e given out until the report was made to the house committee. “It is understood, however, that the senate bill is to be amended to resemble largely the Holder measure as introduced at the extra session, with those amendments which were incorporated in the conference com mittee measure. “If this is done the house will stand where it always stood, and the battle will have to be fought all over again.” Straw hats Gone to Ruin. New York. —There was a big smash in Wall street yesterday. Fully a thousand straw hats went down to ruin. September 15 is the date set by the financial district for the end of summer headgear, and numerous brokers who ventured in to the region of the bulls and bears in defiance of the rule, soon saw their “straws” look like a naval practice target. Although there was less demol ishing of hats on the stock exchange than in former years, the* curl) market and consolidated stock ex change, as well as the lower corri dor of the produce exchange, kept up precedent in good shape. Broad street was littered at noon by many erstw'hile natty senits and split braids. NO. 24
