Th« Tl*lt of Frank Oven and his wife to The News office reminded me of the time we made the first chalk plates for newspaper illustration* here. Mr. Owen began his newspaper illustrating with chalk plates and'has reached with his pencil the height of a staff illustrator for Colliers, the National Magazine, which is about as high as one can go in the game. He lived and grew up in Clarksville and being back home for a visit he came into The News office to renew acquaintance and let some of his early-day friends see that he is still the modest, unassuming but talented young man whose success has not turned bis head nor heightened his hat. Just little more than forty years ago was made the first chalk plate illustrations for a Paris newspaper, the Daily Advocate, an afternoon newspaper published by \V. N. Furey and myself. TVe had acquired the paper from the Whitlow brothers who had published it for several -years and it was a struggling journal but under the management of Will Furey developed later into an influential publication. There was to be a triple execution in the jail yard. Three men. sentenced by the Federal court to die for murder in Indian Territory, were to be hanged one bright Friday in May. 1S34. -We had owned the paper only a few weeks and it occurred to us that if we had some illustrations of the hanging it would be good business. Hax-iag the affair photographed and sending to Dallas for cuts to be made would have taken several days so we resorted to the chalk plates that were in a commercial printing shop here but had never, been used. They were new then and considered a sort of ex- periment, 'though the Dallas Nem-« cartoons were for several years made by that method. We had photographs of the men taken some days ahead and a drawing was made of the scaffold, and from these we engraved chalk plates of the structure and crude likenesses of a white man. a negro and a Mexican, the convicted men being of the three race*. The pictures could not hav* been used to identify the men on a reward poster but they showed the nationality of the Individual* and had some slight resemblance to the men. The plates were ready the day before and I attended tha hanging, being the only reporter and editor, while Furey set the type and made up the forms. Two carrier boys were stationed outside the jail entrance and as fast as I wrote a sheet or two of copy, giving the preliminary details as they occurred, they were passed through a. crack in tha fence and the boy galloped off to the shop on Clarksvllle- street where the copy was put Into type. The boys worked in relays and when the drop fell the men were pronounced dead all I had *o write in the office was the final act of the event. We had papers on the streets in less than half an hour after the men dropped, much to the disyust of th« competing newspaper •n-h'ch had its office across the street from, the jail and ha^ ficrared on beating us out with the story—and when they did appear they had no pictures and we had already j sold the papers in the business part of town. It was what newspaper meij call a "beat" and .we •were rather proud and received some compliments from our readers.
