FACE FOURTEEN BLVTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWB WEDNESDAY, JUNE .11, 19-17 Court to Rule On Belated Laney Vetoes BATESVliLE, Ark., June II. WP)—A court'lest'of. the Carpenter salary bill, passed by the recent legislation but later vetoed by' Oov. Ben Laney, lias been set lor July 7 in Independence County Circuit Court. 'Circuit Judge S. M. Bone agreed to the date in pre-trial conferences yesterday. The suit was brought in the nmme of Assessor John Whaley In ah effort to force county Jud, •Forrest Jeffcry to pay lus salaiy under terms of the new law, which abolished the 'county salary measure »nd returned the county to the fee system. In an effort to bring legality of the law to a test Judge Jcffery denied the higher claim, and al- loVed Whatey only what the county initiated statute provides. ' : VilIdity of the law hinges or the" question of whether Governor l*neys veto is valid or whether he cancelled the measure too late Assistant Attorney General Ike Murray has' ruled that the governor's action came too late. Court action on the salary bill probably wil Ibe interprctatcd as applying lo the Reed liquor bill, which was vetoed by Lnncy iinclor similar circumstances. The need bill would remove much of the discretionary powers of the revenue commissioner in issuing and revoking liquor licenses. $2,500 Ring Recovered From Sewer for Guest In New Orleans Hotel (NEW ORLECC.'S, June 11.

FOE one had almost forgotten ; . that there was n Mr. Tolliver, although I remembered vaguely ' that Flora had once told me he was Lg traveling man and was seldom ^jibic to'comc home. :' He was a liltle man, hardly ''more than five Icet lour or five, : with a leonine head and a great '; inoss of long, wavy white hair, .which he wore brushed back from • 'beautifully modeled forehead. • -"Except for his mouth he was the handsomest man I had ever seen; •liis rrioulh "Was flabby and loose. . I had thought of Mr. Tollivcr, if ,1 thought of him at all, ns a por of tramp, seedy and shabby and 'unwashed. But he>was immacu- Jate^—indeed almost a dandy. .-r"'V£hcn word was finally flashed •JBrpund the town by telephone that Mr. Tolliver had asked formally ^by letter for an interview with _Mr. Forbes, Olsego was like 1 rchicken with its head cut off. V There arc several accounts o : that Historic interview — Sam's i Nelson's, Father's. "The one mos -relished is Weyman's. 'Cousin Sam was waiting for Mr 'TTolliyer in his library. He ha< had'Weyman set out t'.ie whisU> arid open a fresh box of Corona cigars. As Weyinan showed Mr Tolliver in, ho came forward will cordial outstretched hand. > Mr. Tolliver bowed. He ignorci the proffered hand. Ho refused k surrender his stick. He refused tt lit down. .When Cousin Sam* oflored him a drink, Mr. Tollivcr said insultingly: "I thank you, sir, but I am arlicular about those willi whom drinlv." Weyman insisted that poor Mr. iam's ja\v dropped a full six iches and that he looked for all lie world like he had been spit n the eye. ' A T great cost to •"•re. my personal 'celings I have ccmje lo ask on, nay, lo tell you, to keep away rom my daughter," continued Jrotlicr Tollivcr. "When I have •our promise, when you have sal- slled me that you menu to keep hat promise, 1 shall BO. And I Jive you my sacred wcril of honor hut thcrcador neither I nor any ncnibcr o£ my famil}' shall ever larken your doors again." Sam's eyes fairly bugged out, ind he \vns so hopping mad and so isfoimded lhat he kept swallowing ike he was choking. "Which daughter?" he finally ;ot out. Mr. Tollivcr was slightly taken a,back. "No subterfuges, young nan," he snapped, very sour-like You know very well whicl laughter." "I suppose yon mean Flora,' Sam said. "But why? What have I done to Flora?" This was plainly the opening Mr Tolliver was wailing for. Wcymai said he jumped to it. "You dare to ask me thai?" Mr Tollivcr thundered. "Yon win have taken the name ot a whil flower of n girl, a girl who trustee you and honored you above a others . . . you who have Irnmplcx her good name into the mud . you who have made that name . byword and a hissing ..." Mr. Tollivcr flung back his heai and roared that Sam was ncvci never, never to sec his daughlc again nor under any conceivabl circumstances to address a singl word to her. He, her father, he natural protector, was forced t go nwiiy in the morning. But h hnrt his ways of finding out wh; was going on. 11 Mr. Sarr.uc orbcs ro much as flung a glancs i his daughter's dircclion, Mr. olliver would rclnrn, yes, even •om the far corners of (he earth, ml so help him, he would horsc- hin Mr. Forbes within an inch t his life. Cousin Sam says he was never mad in his life. He said: "Why you snotty litllo opinjay! Clot out of my house nd stay out." Mr. Tollivcr invilcct Sam to put im mil. When .'Jam hesitated, lr. Tolliver roared that lie was oing, hut of his own free will and t his own pleasure. Me repeated is lineal of horsewhipping Ham t he ever again spoke to Flora-' die. Then lie .stalked out Ihc door. * 4 * ^Oli a minute Sam just slood •*• there. Suddenly the whole pisodc appeared incredibly funny. Ic laliRbcd and laughed. He took a drink, another drink. Vhen \Vcyinan, who had been lis- cuimi from the next room, sidled n lo ask if he should lock up Ihc louse, he gave him a drink, loo. After Wcyman had gone, Sam vound Ihe grandfather clock. He started to close the windows and .urn off Ihc lights. Quite close lo him he heard a litlle lap at one'of the Krcnch windows that opened on the garden, lie guessed at once who it was who tapped on his window at 11 o'clock at night. 'Go away, lillle white flower, lilllc innocent dove," he saiil lightly. "It's far too laic for you lo conic in. lUin on home and go to bed." 'lease, Sam, just tor a minute, a liny, tiny minute." "No." "Hut I have lo sec you. It's terribly important. I'lcase, dear Sam. 1 give you my word of honor I won't f.tay but live minutes— three. Please, please, pretty please." It was a warm night, and the late phlox was in bloom. Its fragrance drifted tu Sam in waves carried by a little errant breeze. There was no moon, bul Ihc s were beckoning candles. The ran hot in Sam's veins. Half willingly, half relnclanlly, he slipped the catch on the screen. (To Be Continued).
