Representatives of the state's at-

to delay the execution and told

is a bar to execution, was presented

Judge McKInley declined to per-

WASHINGTON. I). C.. Feb. 17.—
Affairs of te Democratic presidential
nomination contest have reached a
show-down. Either Wilson or Clark
will be the nominee. That much has
been determined by somo of the
leading lights of Democracy In Wash-
ington Harmon, bccouse of the at-
tacks made upon him by Bryan, al-
leging that he is too friendly with
Wall street, practically has been
eliminated from tho contest, so far
as actually capturing the nomina-
Harmon will remain In the racc to
the end, however, and the slogan of
the anti-Wilsonites is "anything to
beat Wilson." Harmon will be used
as a stalking horse in evory state
and coalations will be formed with
the Clark forces to dofeat Wilson.

JACKSON, Ky„ Feb. 17.—A Ijng
slumbering Breathitt county feud
war was rcvlded yesterday when
John Davidson and Levi Johnson
were killed and another man
wounded near Buckhorn, about
twenty miles from here. The shoot-
ng was dono from Sandlin's store
along the mountain road and five
men are said to have participated.
Davidson recently was acquitted
of the charge of murdering John Ab-
ner, who long had been identified
with tho Callrhans of this ssctlon.
He was friendly with the Deatons
which has resulted in what is term-
ed the Deaton-Davidson clan. Tho
diooting on yesterday occurred with-
in three miles of Ed Callahan's home.
It is feared the trouble will bring on
further resumption of hostilities.
