THE FRANK CASE AGAIN
Agitation over the murder of Leo Frank does not
come to an end even in Georgia, though sensitive citizens
of that state who 'do not like to hear it talked of have
advised that discussion of the affair be stopped, says the
The latest utterance on the subject is a three-page
article in the Augusta Chronicle signed by the editor and
publisher of that paper, Thomas W. Loyless, in which he

tator, and charges him with the chief responsibility for
the Frank lynching and consequent disgrace to the state;
his campaign against Frank and his persistent attacks on
former Governor Slaton having incited to insurrection,
riot and murder, with the former governor as the next
He declares that Watson's motives were to increase
the circulation of his paper, he having exhausted his am
munition against Catholicism and foreign missions, and
to wreak vengeance on Governor Slaton because the lat
ter had refused to do for a f rend of his exactly what he
did later for Frank commute his sentence of death for
murder but had permitted him to hang, no doubt of
the man's guilt existing.
Mr. Loyless reviews the "Frank case, showing that
Watson had misrepresented .facts and helped to create
sentiment against the accused man and that he made
false charges against Slaton; among them that he was a
partner of Frank's attorneys and was under pay. This
charge was not made until after Watson had tried to
bribe Slaton to let Frank hang by offering to throw his
political influence in behalf of the governor as the next
United States senator from the state. The editor pays
high tribute to Mr. Slaton as one of the most honest and
scrupulous and, as events have proved, one of the most
courageous of men.
It is a bitter arraignment t)f Watson who, there is no
doubt, has been a public nuisance and a hindrance to
progress in his state for many years, and the article is a
courageous expression on Mr. Loyless's part, for it means
vicious assaults in return and possibly violence. He con
cludes with these words:
"There may be, and I have no'doubt there are, many
men in Georgia and elsewhere who will be unable to un
derstand how any man could be willing to carry on a
work of .this sort for money even to increase his income
eight times over. But such men do not understand Tom
Watson. He has but four controlling passions: Bitter
ness, born of political disappointment; hate, engendered
by his attitude toward the world and the world's attitude
toward him; exaggerated ego, causing him to seek notor
iety in any and every way possible; and avarice, money to
iiim being the greatest god of all."
It is evident that Georgia is not to hear the last of the
Frank case for many a day.
FXECTRICITY AS A DESTROYER
announcements have been made of discoveries by which
persons at some distance could be killed by electricity;
none has apparently been successful.
But the idea seems, under the light of the progress
in the use of electricity in the past year, by no means im
possible as were wireless telegraphy and telephony a few
Artificial lightning, it is predicted, will be the great
war force of the future.
Here is another city which is making a success of
municipal ownership of public utilities. The Ashland
Tidings says : "The Ashland municipal electric light plant
and system is proving to be a big asset to the city. The
plant is a success from every point of view, is paying for
itself and setting aside a depreciation fund which will
completely rebuild the plant in twenty years with some
to spare, and is providing patrons with electric current
at a less rate than that paid in almost any other city on
the coast. According to figures given the Tidings by
Recorder Gillette, the electric department sets aside the
sum of $730 sinking fund to pay off the bonds and $200
depreciation fund every month, above running expenses."
The Commercial Club will hold a membership meeting
tonight and it ought to be well attended. The general
discussions of matters pertaining to the welfare of the
city can only be productive of good. And better than
anything else such meetings give the 800 members of the
club an opportunity to get acquainted with each other. '

Electricity will be the great destructive force in the
wars of the future, if there are any wars after this. In
the history of the development of arms and armaments
the present war in Europe will have its place as having
brought to the front enormous guns, submarines and air
The great guns demolished the "impregnable" forts
of Belgium. But by the time the Germans reached
France the French and the British had learned to dig
underground and escape the power of the great guns, and
now their power and use are limited.
The great early success of the German submarines
lias come to an end by the nettings and various devices
invented to destroy their power.
But no effective way has been devised as yet of meet

THE GREAT BLESSING
We have much reason to be grateful, since there's no
warfare, grim and hateful, within this smiling country s
borders; we slay not at some marshall's orders. In
. Europe men are now preparing for months
""'b'"' of freezing and despairing;, they 11 spend
"i. V. ' the winr.pr in thf rrpnrrtps whilp fnps with
guns and monkey wrenches, make daily
efforts to dislodge them, and they'll be too
blamed cold to-, dodge them. Oh, when
you're seated in your rocker, with trusty
pipe and shilling shocker, with peace and
comfort all around yau, and not a peril to
confound you, think how your trans-At
lantic cousins are being shot up by the
dozens. There ; are no comforts in the
trenches; no rocking chairs or padded benches ; there
are no sprightly evening papers, to tell the latest football
capers. The men must stand in muddy .water, and wield
the musket and the swatter, and shiver in the biting bliz
zard, which freezes them from nose to gizzard. Oh,
think of that while you are rocking before the fire, and
blithely talking of White House brides and income taxes
think of the swords and battle-axes!

Battle Being Fought
Between Mexican Factions
Douglas, Aril.,' Nov. 10. A pitched
battlo is reported raging between Vil
listas, commanded by Francisco Villa,
and Carranzistas, led by Alvaro Obro
gon, near Hermosillo today.
Evidently lntendiug to crush Villa by
simultaneous attacks from three aides,
Ohregoa hurled three columns of troops
against the rebel chieftain yesterday.
Villa forestalled this move by desert
ing his headquarter at Magdalene and
suddenly assaulting the enemy advance
guards near Hermosillo,
In this fight ha hud the advantage
of superior numbers, and his scheme
appears to ba engage the Carranxiatas
columns on at a time, thus preserving
hii own numerical superiority.

. WHY "AN-URIC"
IS AN INSURANCE AGAINST SUDDEN DEATH!
Sufferers from Backache, Bheumatlam and Kidney Trouble,
Before an Insurance company will
take a risk on your life the examining
physician will test tie urine and report
whether you are a good risk. When
your kidneys get sluggish and clog,
you suffer from backache, sick-head-
ncne, dizzy spelts, or the twinges and
pains cd lumbago, rheumatism and gout.
The urine is often cloudy, full of sedi
ment; ciiannels yiften sot sore and
sleep is disturbed two or three times a
night. This is the time when you should
consult some physician of wide experi
ence such as Dr. Pierce, of the In
valids' Hotel and Surgical Institute,
Buffalo, N. Y. Send him 10 cents for
sample package of his new discovery
"An-uric." Write him your symptoms
and send a sample of urine for test.
Experience has .taught Dr. Pierce that
"An-uric" is the most powerful agent
in dissolving uric acid, as hot water
melts sugar, besides being absolutely
harmless and is endowed with other
properties, for it preserves the kidneys
in a healthy condition by thoroughly
cleansing them. Being so many times
more active than lithia, it clears the
heart valves of any sandy .substances
which may clog them and checks the
degeneration of the blood vessols. as
well as regulating blood pressure. "Aa
uric" is a regular insurance and life
saver for all big meat eaters and those
who iloposit lime-salts in their joints.
Ask the druggist for "An-uric"' put
up by Dr. Pierce, in 50-cent packages.
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets fof the
liver and bowels have bcea favorably
known for nearly 00 years. Adv.
