womanhood awakes; she has her first ex
perience of love In Its grand Intensity. Dis

austere plantation owner, which serves
vastly to adorn and embellish the story.
The book deals with Intrigue, the basest of
passions, murder and yet It cannot be
called a tragedy, for there is too much j
of the sweet sentiment of friendship, love
and rollicking humor for that. It reflects
a striking picture of the marauding clans
that terrorised west Tennessee with the
ghost of a "servile rebellion," and of how
the better element at last brought
them to Justice; that sort of quick, simple
Justice for which that country was then
noted. The book will never depend for its
popularity on its power to play on the
cheaper emotions, for it has a narrative
of sustained Interest that makes a bold
appeal to the lover of high-class historic

only old-timers remember, but It is nonetheless of record that a predecessor
In the office now held by Thomas had a head-end collision with Uncle Hams
laws way back In 1872 as Is attested by the criminal docket of the federal court.
This was the case of Joel M Uiiffen, appointed postmaster by grace of Sen
ator P. W. Hitchcock In return for political and financial assistance In his cam
paign. Postmaster Grlffen. who, when not aorting mall was working a farm In the
west suburbs of the city, got iu bad by taking home with hlin a number of
Uncle Sam'a mall sacks and using them to market potatoes and other farm
products. There was ne civil service commission in those days to come snoop
ing around, but the federal grand Jury started after the honorable postmaster
and promptly. Indicted him on three counts, one for appropriating to his own
private use and benefit a certain United States mall Back belonging to the Poatof
flce department, valued at lb, another for similarly misappropriation on another
occasion twenty-four ceriaJn Lulled Stales mail sacks, aud another for misap
propriating at still a different time five certain United Slates mall sacks, and
in each case neglecting to account for or to pay for them.
By agreement entered into between Grlffen's lawyer, John I. Redlck. the
postmaster waa permitted to plead guilty to two counts in the Indictment,
while the third waa nulled, and the cOIliptt6unate judge let hltu down easy
vvlth a fine of flm) and cocts.
It is needless to say that Postmaster Griffen speedily vacated the Job and
was succeeded as Postmaster by CaHUer y. Voat.

terday that a settlement among the Adams'
men and the company was In prospect,
through the promise of the leaders that the
men would return to work pending dis
cussion of settlement terms which Mayor
Gaynor had promised to bring about.
This plan, however, was overturned at a
meeetlng of delegates of the various com

was decided not only to keep the Adam.4
men out. but to extend the strike sym
