A TERRIBLE ACCIDENT
1I Dr T. J. Collins Has Part of His Head
< Dr. TJ. Collins, u prominent phy
sician living at McKibben, was seri
ously if not fatally wounded yesterday
morning about 6 o'clock.
The particulars of the affair are very
meagre and conflicting. The only
thing about which all reports agree is
that Dr Collins received the contents
of a shot gun in the side of his face,
which tore away the lower jaw bone, a
portion of the chin and his right ear.
One report says that Dr. Collins was
reaching for his gun, which was stand
ing in the corner of his room, when
the hammer struck a bureau and the
gun was discharged. This theory is
hardly practicable, as the shot was
fired from the rear. The charge first
tore oft’the ear and then entered the
cheek, shattering the chin in a horrible
Another report says the doctor was
accidently shot by bis young eon, who
was trying to extract a shell from bis
gun, and this is probably how the ac
The first heard of the affair was
when a telephone message was receiv
ed this morning asking Dr. T. E.
Drewry to go to McKibben and con
sult with the physicians who have
been at the bedside of the wounded
man since shortly after the accident.
The attending physicians consider
the wound a fatal one, and entertain
but little hope of saving the mans life.
Dr. Collins is over 40 years of age,
is married and has several children,
two o f whom are married.

Col- Bryan in New York.
The New York Time, the strongest
Democratic newspaper in New York
has this to say of Col. Bryan’s recep
tion in the metropolis the other night:
“Mr. Bryan, we doubt not, thinks be
has bad a magnificent, reception in the
enemie’s country. The three thousand
guests and spectators at the dollar din
ner went wild over him, fought like
cats and dogs with each other to grasp
his band, and raised the roof with
their cheers. He will go back to Ne
braska and wait for news of the great
ground swell for Bryan in New York.
“Ho will wait in vain. The Dem
onstration at the Grand Central Pal
ace is i.s empty of meaningas it was
noisy in performance. The men who
howled for him on Saturday night
have no influence or following in this
city or State. They are largely the
political chaff of the community,
blown about by all winds, planting
sterile ideas in barren soil. It was an
occasion of much enthusiasm but no
“Bryans sticks to bis 16 to 1 doctrine,
which Judge Gaynor says cost the
Democratic party a million and a half
votes in 1896. He refuses to abandon
that fatal issue, even to attack the
trusts, although hie associates are work
ing hard to make an octopus hunter
of him. Probably he is wife in that.
. The greed of the monopolists is a pret
ty good subject to talk about these
I hard times, but there is‘nothing in it’
for Bryan’s original promoters and
employers, the silver mine owners;
and the subject has no interest for the
, class from which Bryan gained sc
many following 1896.
“Unless some Democrat comes
along with a plan of campaign more
attractive to the voters of New York
than those of Bryan and Tarvin ths

learn something of the chiracter of

1 Mr. J. M. Quigby, one of the most
1 prominent planters of Meriwether
county, was in the city today and tells
a very different story a- to the piety
and industry of “Rev” Lige Strick
land. Mr, Quigby said that he had
known Strickland during slavery, and
Major Thomas was the first person,
white or black, who had ever found I
any good in him. The negro belonged >
to Mr. Quigby’s father-in-law, and
before his emancipation he was strung
up two or three times for poisoning a
valuable horse belonging to bis mas
Strickland moved into Mr. Quigby’s 1
neigborhood about four years ago, and '
his conduct became so repulsive to
white people, and decent negroes, that
he was run out of the settlement after
living there about six mouths.
He was known to have had more 1
than one wife, and Mr. Quigby, who is
a justice of the peace, was about to .
cause the arrest of Strickland when he |
left for parts unknown.
I he next be heard of the negro was
when he was informed yesterday that I
he bad been lynched, knowing the
negro as be did, he was surprised to
learn that any one could express a re
gret that the state had been ridden of
such a character.
He says that Strickland used his
ministerial garb as a cloak to shield
him in his checkered career, which i
since childhood has been but a series

“IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT ’
The Secretary of the Ants Imperialist
Boston, Ma.-- , April 21 —Concern
ing tlie dispatches from Washington
to the effect that the administration
had discovered that the anti-expan
sionists in this country bad been
sending messages to the Philippines
stirring them up to discontent, Erving
Winslow, secretary of the anli-Impe-!
rialistic League, said that the charge I
was ridiculous concerning the impli- ■
cation of treason in such an act. Mr.
Winslow said that there was no such
thing as treason except an overt act
against the government. Construc
tive treason was not recognized by the
constitution of the United States. He
declared that it was of course impossi
ble to tell whatsome individuals might
have attempted to do, whose indigna
tion had been excited by the president's
action. He continued :
“If there is to be any punishment
inflicted it should be byway of im
peachment of the president, who em
ployed the army and navy of the
nation in a war against the people of
the Philippines with the avowed pur
pose of destroying their army and of
reducing the people to admit the sov
ereignty of our government, while it
is not pretended that this war was
declared by c tigress, in which body
alone, under our constitution, the right
to declare war exists ”
Mr. Winslow intimated that it would
be difficult for anybody to elude the j
press censorship and get dispatches to ;
the Philippines. The complaint all!
along had been that the press censor-j
ship was so rigid that nobody knew j
i what was going on in the Philippines. ;
