ported laaurrectioa of the Negroea.
Mr. J. B. Moon, a recent graduate of
the Un»versity Law school and a leading
member of the Danielsville bar, was in
Athens yesterday. He says things are in
a rather exciting condition in Madison
county and that a good deal of trouble lr*
brewing which may result in bloodshed
and genera) collision between the whites
The beginning of the trouble was on
Wednesday, when Mr. Murray David, one
of the wealthiest and most prominent men
of Madison county, received an anonymous
note containing the following startling
statement: “You shill die to-night.’'
Mr. David lives in Paoli, a small town in
Madison county, and he immediately trans
mitted the information which he had
received to his neighbors. They forthwith
formed a garrison and stationed guards on
the oui,posts of-the town. As night ap
proached the garrison was increased by
additions from the adjaceat country and by
nightfal a large and resolute body of men
were assembled in Paoli to protect any
and all of their number from assault on
the part of any of the black race. About
seven o’clock a large body of negroes
advanced toward the town with the inten
tion of carrying into effect the threat made
to Mr. David, but on finding the town so
.well fortified and protected they turned
back. Men were kept on watch all Wed
nesday night for tear of trouble and last
night, on account of the open threats made
by the negroes, the watch was kept up.
It is not knowi? how the matter will end.
Mr. Moon says that he does not know the
cause of the outbreak on the part of the
negroes. There is no personal animosity
between them and Mr. David. The only
ground on which it can be accounted for
is the inborn meanness of human nature,
which is obliged to have an expression in
one way or another. Meanwhile the peo
ple of Madison are in a state of excitement
and disquietude. It is certain that if they
.need aid they have ouly to notify the
people of Athens to that effect and in a
few minutes a large delegation from our
city Will be en route to that cottoty for the
protection of their relatives and brothers
of a common race.

A Grent Programme to be Presented
at tbe N. E. Gearffta Fair.
Every farmer in Georgia should be pres
ent at the North East Georgia Poultry and
Stock Fair on next Thursday morning.
It will be the great day of the whole year
for the farmers of Georgia. Recognizing
the importance of the Farnnrs’ Alliance
as a factor in the growth of o»r country,
tbe directors of the Athens Fair have
set aside next Thursday as the day upon
which the farmers of our State wi 1 meet
in Georgia, and celebrate the year &
j’jiHhc apprnprvitJ Tu ue
great cause the farmers represent. To thaf
end speakers whose knowledge of the in
terests of our agricultural population can
not tie doubted, will be here to address the
yeomen of the soil. Practical farmers
from every part of the South will be on
hand to give their views and to imp-nt
such information as their extended oppor
tunities for observation allow. President
L. F. Livingston, the toast of Georgia’s
Ailiancemen, and the conspicuous figure
in tbe great farmers movement, has pro
raised to be on hand. Hon. W. J. North
ern, the practical business man and farmer
of Sparta, as fearless and as honorable a
man as Lacedemon ever produced, will
mingle with the people of the State in
Athens next Thursday, and then there is
Felix Corput, R J. Redding, and dozens
of others whose presence will lend interest
and profit to the great farmer’s jubilee
Not satisfied with bringing to Athens
the most prominent Alliance men, the di
rectors have secured three Alliance cou
ples who will be married on the grand
stand on Alliance day. The grooms are
men who have walked behind the plow
and haVe obeyed the Biblical injunction of
living by the sweat of their brow. The
brides are the fairest and most accomplish
ed daughters of Banks and Oglethorpe,
and when in the presence of thousands of
spectators, next week this perpetual union
of heart with heart shall be consummated,
the scene will beggar description. Con
gratulations and’ gifts will be showered
upon the contracting parties, and joy will
reign supreme. The fact which will en- |
dear this ceremony ruoie than any other |
to the farmers of the Slate is that the
three couples will be arrayed iu cotton
bagging. No silk polluted by the thought
of monopoly, no autin emblematic of mo
nied oppressors of the people, will clothe
these fair brides. Dressed in the products
of the fleecy staple, and beautified by that
loveliness which has been said “when un
adorned to be most adorned,” these couples
will in their own peculiar way, by the
marriage ceremony, express their discoun
tenance of trust and monopoly, and will
nail one more spike in the coffin of the
Besides these attractive features, there
will be on farmers’ day the great Wild
West show in operation. The wonderful
feats accomplished by this aggregation of
experts will be tbe wonder of all present,
and will be a memory to be preserved and
mused upon on the return of the visitor to
Besides these, tbe balloon ascension by
the Jewel Brothers will be made, and at
an altitude of thousands of feet, the great
parachute leap will lie made. This will be
a most thrilling and wonderful sight, and
any one who has the opportunity of see
ing this great attraction should not fail to
During the afternoon there will be races
between the finest horses to be found on
the’Southern turf. That these will be ex
citing and close is shown by the fact that
in Atlanta and Macon, where these horses
last contested, the races aroused the great
est enthusiasm and interest. The Athens
public and Georgia in general will have
the opportunity of seeing such racing as is
seldom seen south of Coney Island.
But words fail in attempting to describe
the numberless attractions which will be
presented next week. Suffice it to say that
the man in Georgia who fails to see the
Fair in Athens next week misses the op
portunity of a life-time. We indeed have
had a Piedmont Exposition with its ex
hibits of Northern machinery and North
ern manufactories. We have had a Stale
Fair which presented a great aggregation
of cabbage from one county, pumpkins
from another and yam potatoes from a
But while these are all very good in their
place, it has remained for Athens to get up
a show which will be a Georgia show in
its essential features, and yet discard ail of
the worn out features with which the pub
lic has been afflicted for years back. Such
a great consolidation of attractions as will
bs presented next week, partakes more of
the nature of a half dozen shows, than of
one fair. To use tbe words of the average
circus company—speaking with more
truth, however—we present next week “a
mastodon combination of enormous pro
portions, and of unsurpassable novelty.”
FAIR NOTES. ,
It has b<en Slid by some, that Athens
cannot accommodate the crowds which
will be here next week. The directors
have, however, made ample preparations,
and thrfe will be plenty of room for the
accoßimodation of all.

I sympathize most heartily, gentlemen,
in your ardent desire to improve the side
walks of tbe Classic City. Some of them,
on Broad stn et and College avenue, though
often paved and re-paved with brick, are
the worst in tbe city. It is hardly extrav
agant to say that they are perhaps the
meanest on the North American continent.
The fault, gentlemen, is not in our soil, it
is in our brick. When first laid down*
they look reasonably well; but they are
speedily disintegrated by the rains and
•frosts, and worn threadbare by the attri
tion of passing feet. In a few monthsi
they are uncomfortable; In a few more,
they are dangerous. A citizen cannot walk

died, goes for the saying; but how is this
to be done? In answering this momentous
inquiry, I beg leave to say, as a lawyer, as
well as a Mayor, that you cannot improve
the pavements of the city, or the mcrals of
I tbe city, through the instrumentality of a
bogus law. By bonus law, gentlemen, I
mean a and passed tbrongh
the General Assembly of Georgia in a man
ner contrary to the provision of the Con
stitution of the State.
When you adopted your paving ordi
nance on the second of September, with
such prodigious unanimity, and pressed it
into, and through the House of Represen
tatives in less than fifteen days, you were
evidently not aware that by such celerity,
you were violating tbe State Constitution.
You had never lenrned, or you had for
gotten that the Constitution, the supreme
law of this great commonwealth prescribes
a thirty days notice to the people of any
locality before a local law affecting their
rights can be admitted into the General
Assembly. This notice, gentlemen, due
to the people of Athens, not merely as a
legal right but as a sacred Constitutional
right, you failed to give, and as the natural
and inevitable fruit of this failure you
have on your hands a law, so called,
which your people cab defy and which
you cannot enforce. To convince you,
gentlemen, that I am correct, allow me to
read to you a few lines from the Com
mentaries on American Law, by Chan
“To contend,” says the Chancellor, “that
the courts of justice must obey the requi
sitions of an act of the legislature when
it appears to them to have been passed in
violation of the Constitution, would be to
contend that the law was superior to the
Constitution. There can be no doubt,that
every act of the legislature contrary to the
Constitution, is null and void.”
Such high authority is conclusive. Your
law is a nullity. You may threaten with
it, and frighten the ignorant, the timid,
but your threats will excite the derision of

If you attempt to coerce such men with
a bogus law, you will not only have the
costs to pay, but you expose the city to
damage suits for what is termed “vexatious
litigation,” and there might be nothing
left in the treasury to pay the salaries of
either Mayor or Aidermen. In view of
such an alarming possibility, I hope you
will join me in laying this unconstitutional
nullity on the shelf; and as we do so, let
us say in the words of the wise, the witty,
the honest, the valiant Jack FUstaff, “O

Flach—The Affair in Detail.
Reports reached the city this morning of
a killing which occurred in Madison
county, at Fowler’s bar room. This estab
lishment is quite near the line which di
vides Clarke from Madison* and it is a
place which has figured quite extensively
in the eyes of the public since tbe prohibi

best known negroes around Athens. Bill
Finch keeps bar for Fowler, and it seems
that last night as usual he closed the bar
about nine o’clock aud went out into the
grove adjoining the bar where several
negroes were playing a game of cards on
which some money was up. In this crowd
was Bearfleld and his brother and a negro
who works in the bar with Finch. When
Finch came up to the crowd who were
playing cards he found them disputing
over the possession of tbe stakes and
finally they began fighting among them
selves. During this lime Finch was stand
ing near the crowd and the negro who
works in tbe bar cried out “Where are
you, Mr. Finch ?” and received the reply,
“Here I am.” Thereupon the negro in 1
question run up to him and began talking 1
with him when he was followed by a.
lusilade of rocks thrown by the other
negroes. Finch called to them to stop,
but instead of so doing they continued
throwing, one of the missiles striking him
in the body, inflicting a painful wound.
Thereupon Finch drew a pistol and shot
at one of the negroes in the crowd who
bad a pistol in his hand. By some acci
dent, however, he missed bis aim and shot
young Bearfleld in the head, killing him
instantly. It is but proper to state that
the above account of tbe affair is the sub
stance of the story on Finch’s side. Sev
eral negroes from that part of the country
were in town this morping aud they do
not hesitate to state that the murder was
in cold bic-oJ. They allege that the ne
groes were quietly playing cards in the
woods when Finch, considerably uuder

ug at one negro in the crowd missed him
’and shot Bearfield.
THE SLAYER IN TOWN.
Bill FinCb was in town this morning
about seven o’clock. He was seen by a
number of our citizens, and about half past
six o’clock walked down Clayton street in
his shirt sleeves. He saw a number of
people whom he knew, and went around
to see Mr George Booth, to whom he told
his story of the crime. He is quite well
known in Athens, having worked for Mr.
Booth about three months ago. He was
not seen in town after eight o’clock, and
his where-ibouts, as we go to press, are un
known to the police. No warrant has been
eceived from Madison county for his ar
est, and it is for this reason that no effort
r has been made by the police to secure him.

John Keel, who lives on the edge of

The couple lived together for thirty
years, and raised a family of four children.
All the children married and moved away..
The couple became lonely, and they got a
young lady named Jane Hunter to come
and live with them.
Miss Hunter is about 20, bright and at

Hunter. His wife grew jealous, and ac

Yesterday in the House of Representa

Mr. McDonald, of Ware, was one of the
