15,-000,000 The reporter learned incidentally that John Howard, a brother of the notorious Wils Howard, accompanied by a man named Ed Noe, both of Harlan county, boarded the train bound for Louisville at Flat Lick. Knox county. last Satur day, and traveled to l.rab Orchard in Lincoln county, where they left the train and went to the house of a man named Joseph Blair, who formerly lived in Harlan Harlan county, but is now residing at Crab Orchard. John Howard is a very dangerous dangerous and desperate young fellow, and it may be set down as certain that he would not leave Harlan county while hi brother. Wils Howard, was there. His leaving the county and going to Crab Orchard is therefore very conclusive ev idence that Wils Howard, tbe bold d perado. has fonnd the climate of Harlan not exactly congenial at this time, and ha gone to other parts. As long aa Wils Howard remains away from Harlan county there is not likely to be any further trouble. But with his return, the blood will again begin to flow. Tbe good citizens of Harlan are determined that be shall not reside in that county and continue Ida career as an outlaw. If he surrenders to the au thorities, be will be given a fair trial. an punished or cleared according to tbe law and the evidence. Unless he makes himself smeniable to the courts, he will be killed. That seems to be, in a nut shell, the situation in llarltn county,
