ONE DESERTER, ONE SLACKER.
Federal Ofllcor KOIKMI in n Couple in
the Hattie Creek Section.
Last Friday afternoon the U. S.
deputy marshal was in the Battle
Crook section on official business.
While there he and his companions
noticed some parties who made ra
ther suspicious movements-so much
so that the officers placed them under
arrest. On being searcebd they were
found to bo in possession of two good
Colt's revolvers and ammunition suf
ficient for a considerable hunting ex
pedition, whatever the nature of their
game might be. They wero also sup
plied with plenty of good, warm
clothes-two grips full. But-and
thereby hangs a tale-they did not
have registration cards, and could
not satisfactorily explain their move
ments for the past few weeks. They
were brought to Walhalla and tried,
before the U. S. Commissioner, on
the charge of failing to register for
military service In the United States
army, and upon tho evidence pre
sented they were held for their ap
! pearance at Greenville Court.
Shortly after the hearing before
tho Commissioner was concluded, the
Local Board for Oconee county re
ceived a message from the Local
Board of Stephens county, Georgia,
saying that H. T. Brown was 41 de
serter, and that J. C..Brown was a
slacker, and if seen to arrest thom.
These were the men who had Just
been remanded to jail to await fur
ther trial. Upon being notified to
? that effect the sheriff of Stepha;
?county came to Walhalla at once and
i carried H. T. Brown back with him
?to bo court-martialed upon the charge
I of desertion. J. C. Brown remained
in jail until Monday morning, when
his father came over from Basta
nolle, Ga., and made bond for bis
appearance before the District Court
upon the charge of failing to regis
