GREENYILLE JURORS FINALLY
Motion For Sew Trial Is Refused and
Lawyers Announce Intention
Greenville, Sept. 4.?George W. Tid"well,
aged 53, was found guilty of manslaughter
today after the jury had deliberated
nearly 24 hours and was recommended
to the mercy of the court.
Judge Prince thereupon sentenced Tid
well, who, on March 12, 1914, killed
Emmett Walker, to serve seven years
in the State penitentiary or upon-the
public works of Greenville, the prisoner
being left free to take his choice. I
The verdict was announced by the
jury upon the convening of court this
morning. The 12 men had been out
since 10:30 Friday morning. It is saH
that until the last few minutes six of
the jurors held out for acquittal.
This was the second time Tidwell
has been tried. In May, 1914, he was
tried and sentenced to 12 (years. His
sentence was subsequently reduced to
seven years by the governor. Counsel
for Tidwell announced that an appeal
would 'be taken. Judge Prince overruled
the motion ifor a new trial. He
admitted Tidwell to bail in the sum of
$5,000, pending the next session of the
supreme court. x
One of the grounds for appeal will
be the allegation .that some one spoke
to the jury as they were going into a
hotel for supper. Jurors admitted
n offainct TiHnroll ,Hllt
IlCCti illg <X ICUiUlU USU11IU1, xiuovi*, vua
6ay that they paid no attention to it
Still another point is the allegation
that Tidwell could not legally be tried
for murder, inasmuch as his sentence
iad been commuted. Counsel contend
he should have been tried for
Wronged the Woman.
Wiley was in tears and hubby looked
"Oh, dear! Oh, dear!" moaned
wifey. "If wish I'd taken poor mother's
advice and never married you."
"Did your mother try to stop your
marrying me?" he demanded.
Wifey nodded violently.
A look of deep remorse crossed
"Great Scott!" he cried in broken
tones. "How I wronged that woman."

Forty Mexicans were counted. Before
the firing began they manoeuvred
2 through the brush until they had
spread up and down the tortuous river
bank a distance of two miles. .When
s the Mexicans opened fire it was returned
by the troops, who were soon
joined by rangers from Mission. Word
also was sent to Mission and Capt.

' Trouble at Brownsville
J The trouble area today was confined
to the Mission district and Brownsville,
separated by 65 miles. In the section
surrounding this city troops of several
companies of infantry and citizens
worked unceasingliy through the day
' following all clue's developed as to
} the whereabouts of the bandit gang
which terrorized the country 11 miles
* north of here Thursday.
Late today a band of 13 Mexicans
?as located south of San Benito. A
detachment of cavalry was sent in
search and it developed that the Mexicans
were headed for the Rio Grande.
1 Fort Brown then notified a detachment
of infantry hidden in an advan'
tageous position near the Rio Grande,
five miles from Brownsville, that the
* Dana probably would come in that direction.
Simultaneously a detachment
1 of cavalry under Lieut. Crittenburger
5 left Brownsville for the vicinity of the '
' hidden infantrymen. :The cavalry ar- gk
1 rived just in time to prevent the Mexi- *
* cans crossing, -but a citizen spoiled the ~
" game biy firing a shot. The Mexicans
L thus warned promptly hid in the brush.
At sundown as the cavalry and infantrymen
were 'being stationed along the
5 .bank of the river to prevent Mexicans
5 crossing the stream, five of the band
were seen and 13 are known to be
