Of tbe largest, If not the largest, incor
porated enterprise ever entered Into in
the south bas just been organized in
this city under the laws of Tennessee.
It is to be known as "the corporate
town company of Knoxville, Tenn."
It has for its object the foundation of
great manufacturing city in the healthy
highlands of east Tennessee, which arc
wealthy in timber, iron, coal and other
mineral and agriuultural deposits suf
ficient to support large industrial pop
ulations. The capital stock Is $10.-
000,000, shares $100, distributed ' in
mall holdings throughout the entire
country. Of this amount $200,000 are
already subscribed and paid in. The
company wilt control millions for pur
poses of development, such as building
and owning street railroads.gas works,
furpaces.eloctrlo lights and telephones,
homes for artisans of every description.
The history of the Mlddlesborough town
company may be taken as illustrative of
the future possibility of this new ven
ture on such a large bonis. The town
of Mlddleshorough two voart ago had '
only fifty inhabitants and four houses.
It now bas 7,oou innatuiants ana tne
company owns property. to the value
of millions. The stock of tbe Middies
borough company sold two years ago
in the English market at 6 per share.
It now commands 25. Their proper

where Knrllsh capitalists bave invest

Dead wood, 8. D., March 24 Newt
has just reached Dead wood that C. C.
Hull, a farmer, white hunting brush
rabbits at Hay creek on J. W. Cald
well's ranch six miles west of ' Minne
aula, Butte county, a few days -ago,
found the head of a girl apparently
about fifteen years of age. The ghastly
relic of a foul crime had been wrapped
in bed ticking and partially buried be
neath the loose dirt. The bead was
taken into Minnesula and, though well
preserved, has not yet been Identified.
Back of the left ear is a fracture about
the size of a man's thumb, from which
a crack extends nearly to where the
bead joined the body. A murder has
evidently been committed, but who the
victim is and who tbe murderer is, Is
yet a mystery. A theory is gaining
ground that the crime was committed
elsewhere and the head taken to Hay
creek, a dismal and not much fre
quented place, in the hope that it would
never bo found, and that whenever the
headless trunk might be discovered
identification would be impossible.
There are no clues, but the entire
Block Hills is excited and all the ma
chinery of the law will be invoked to
ferret out and punish the murderer.

Sioux Falls, March 24 The Unit

during its late session at Deadwood,
indicted two Sioux Indians, Plenty
Horses and Jxjuvcs-Ills-Wouian, for

tried at Sioux Falls April 10. As soon
as the indictment was made, United
States Marshal Fry of this city left for
Fort Meado, where the Indians were
incarcerated, and demanded of Cap
tain Somers their surrender. The cap
tain refused to do so, claiming the In
dlans were prisoners of war. 'Die civil
government authorities of the state to

on the war department for the transfer
of the prlsocers to the United States

two police and a woman, Six weeks

Budd threw up a revolver and fired,

.Wheeling, W. Va.. March 2: In
a letter sent to the editor of the Wayne
News by Captain Anse Hatfield, ("Devil
Arise") he says that general amnesty
bas beeu declared in the famous Hat-Held-McCoy
feud, that the war spirit
in blm has abated and he rejoices at
the prospects of peace. This tetter
wilt serve to quell all disturbance as
far as tbe Hatfield side is concerned,
and it is thought that a like letter has
been published In Kotuuky. This
state of affairs Is the result of the mar
riage of one of the Hatfield to Miss
McCoy, and a truce and peace congress
was held shortly after. This feud has
been In existence since 1873. and there
has been no lees than 100 deaths
among the participants.

who discussed the report for nearly aa
hour. The police bave informaon
that the subject of Saturday's lynching
was taken up and certain phases of It
debated, but they bave not been able
to learn whether or not any ' threats
were made. It is claimed that both Sun
zerl and Natall have already told,
most of their , story to Attorney
General Rogers and the members of
the committee of safety, and that tbey
have consented to repeat it to tho
grand jury whenever that body gets
ready to have them. When the grand
jury resumes its inquiry into the jury'
bribing matter tomorrow it will hear
the stories of the Hennessy jurors who,
have been accused of having been
bribed by O'Malley. The object of
this investigation, it is given out now,
is to get at all the men who were as
sociated with O'Malley, and particu
larly the ones who are believed to have
employed him to fix juries. Governor
Nlcholls' long expected reply to Secre

written at last snd left for Washington
on last night's mall. From all that
can be learned about the letter. It will
not give Mr. Blaine either a great deal
of satisfaction or a great deal of news.
