A GEORGIA IEW.
The Curous Comments of some People on the
Dicharge of mackwood
(From the Atlanta Constitution.)
The governor has as yet received no ap- t
plication for a requisition for F. A. Black
wood, the much-fought-over forger wno is
now under arrest in Aiken county. Souit-h
It will be remembered that whnen Black
wood's application for a writ of liabeas t
corpus was decided in his favor, instead of t
being turned loose, he was pacet upon
South Carolina soil. but. by a strange coi.1
cidence. right within reach of some South
Carolina constables. who had warr.ats fr
hisarrest. It was supposed that im.ediately
after his arrest application for a requisitlon r
would be made by the Auguta atherme.
But so far there are no evidencs ot ay i
The decisiou of Judge loney in ti::'. case
seems to amuse a good many miember- of
the profession in Atlanta. They say that
the only question before the cuu:t was the -
legality of the arrest of the prisoner, and
that that question could not have been t
made by the prisoner. That has been the t
universal decision. So Judge Roney must
have released the prisoner because he found
that his arrest was illegal and iihat the sov
ereign-that is the State of South Carolina t
-was demanding his release. There is no C
law on the face of the earth to sustain him t
in this position. It is not comity nor ex
tradition nor anything else. But the most
amusing fact connectcd with the whole
affair was that Blackwood was not released.
If entitled to his liberty he ought to have
walked out of the court house a free man. t
But it seems that while declaring that he
ought to be released, the judge did not re- t
lease him, but instead put him in custody of I
the sheriff to carry hin back to South Car- I
olina. The sheriff didn't carry him back
to South Carolina, but carried him down
below Augusta to Sand Bar Ferry, and put I
him in a boat and carried him over to the
South Carolina coast on Beach Island.
where two South Carolina olicers stood
ready to arrest him. t
"Who sent them to that particular point I
on the river*" asked a prominent attorney t
who was discussing the question yesterday.
"Who sent the sheriff with his prisoner I
several miles down the river when there 1
was a broad 'bridge by which they could
have crossed to Carolia? Where did
Judge Roney find his authority for releas
ing a prisoner on habeas corpus and still
holding him in custody? Who sent the C
sheriff down the river' All this may be
very adroit management. but it isn't law.
Such a decision will be ridiculed on both -
sides of the river."
This is a sample of the queries put by
different members >f the bar when discuss- I
ing the Blackwood matter. The prepon
derance of opinion seems to be that Judge
Roney's decision is not good law, but while
they criticise his decision. all join in paying
the highest tribute to his character as a man
and in expressing the belief that he has I
acted conscientiously throughout. t
MORE OF BLACKWOOD.
Efforts to Bring About a Compromise in the
Interests of Stone and McNally.
(From the Atlanta constitution.)
The friends of Stone and MIcNally.
the two men charged with having kid
napped the forger blackwood, are making
a strong effort to bring about some compro
mise by which these men may escape trial
upon the charge hanging over .their heads.
For some days the officers here have been
expecting to receive an application for a
requisition for Blackwood, but no such ap
plication has as yet been received.
Jt will be remembered that when the
habeas corpus case was decided in favor of
Blackwood the court, instead of ordering
his release, turned him over to Ihie custody
*of the sheriff of Richmond county, with in
structions to "place hinm back upon South I
Carolina soil." This was done, but it was
done in a way which indicates that there
must have been some previous understand- 1
ing between the authorities of Richmondi t
county and those of Aiken county, S. C.
A broad bridge joins Augusta and I1am
burg, and had the prisoner been released.
and he should have been under the decision
of the court, he would undoubtedly have 1
made straight for that bridge as the short- C
est path to safety. It is natural to suppose,
too, that the sheriff would ordinarily have
taken Blackwood to South Carolina by this<
- Did he do this? Hardly. MIr. Sheriff evi- t
dently has a fondness for water routes, anda
to gratify this fondness takes his prisoner(
several miles down the river, where a row ]
boat is obotained, and together they arc
landed on the South Carolina bank of the -
river. By a strange coincidence, several
A&iken county constables happen to be at
the same point at the same time and the re
sult is Blackwood's ride to liberty is noth
ing more - than a transfer from a jail in
Georgia to one in South Carolina.
Blackwood is supposed to be held until a
requisition can be issued for him, but he is, I
in reality, being held until some sort of an
agreement can be brought about.
Stone and MIcNally are considerably1
averse to being tried in South Carolina for
kidnapping, and if they can effect some ara
rangement by which the wounded honor (
of the State of South Carolina can be ap-a
peased they will gladly do so. As the<
matter now stands they are to be turned -
over to the authorities of Aiken county, S.
C., as soon as the cases pending in Georgia
courts are decided.
-It is stated upon good authority that
their attorneys have made a proposition to ,
drop the prosecution against Blackwood in
case the same is done with the eases against
Stone and 3IcNally.
This is the same proposition that wasI
made by their friends before the habea.,
corpus case was decided. The South Car
olina authorities ref used to entertain it then,
and it does not seem likely that they will.
Ao so now. If this fails, a compromise
will be s,ght on some other basis. t
In the meantime Blackwood languishes1
- in jail. -__ __ __
A Woman Kills Her Child.
*Effie and Jane Shaller, colored, living or
the plantation of M1r. Barnes Plyler, jtust
over the State line, were arrested on Satuir- I
dylast, charged with murdering an infamns
cid of the former. Efie Shallers is the I
mother of foui- children, all of them, how
ever, were said to have been still born. Ons
Saturday last her fourth child was born.c
No one was present wvith her but her moth t
-er, Jane Shaller. It was regarded as a sus-e
picious circumstance. in the neighborhood,
that all her children should have been born
dead, so a physician was sent for and ar
examination was made of the child. The
physician removed one of the lungs of the
child and placing it iti water found th it it
tioated, which showed that the child h'?d ~
once breathed. On further examination its
neck and shoulders were found to be brokt .
The women both persisted that the child
was born dead. Warrants were taken out e
for them and they were held for trial on
bond of $2,000 each.-Lancaster- Ledger. J

"With Malice Toward None, With Charity for
(From the Nev York Herald)
The brave Southerners who took part in
Pickett's brilliant charge at Gettysburg,
have been looking forward to July with
high anticipations. They hoped to meet
their Northern opponents on that famous
and fateful day, to rehearse the events
which were big with historic significance
and to recount to each other innumerable
adventures and hairbreadth escapes.
They were also to take with them a mon
ument, commemorative of the splendid
courage of their comrades, and to erect it
on the furthert point reached within the
union lines. The plan is approved by the
survivors of the union forces which re
pulsed and drove them back. There scems
no harm in marking the spot where the
Northern forces were temporarily broken.
and if a monument to Southern courage
stands close to a moaument of Northern
pluck, what of it!' The brave men on both
sides crossed their swords there, and the
spot will forever have a painful interest for
But the Gettysburg Battlefield Memorial
Association say "No," politely. yet decided
ly. The are willing to have the monument
built at Pickett's starting point, but not
within the lines of the Northern army.
They object, also, to the inscription on the
base of the moument, two lines written in
pencil by General Lee and found in his army
satchel after Appomattox:
Glorious is his fate and envied is his lot
Who for his country fights and for it dies.
This strikes us a very mean and small
business. So it will strike cvery' soldier
who won honor on that field. The brave
man is always ready to give deserved praise
to his opponent. It was an awful day,
that day of Pickett's -charge, and stern
Southern stuff was met by stern sttuff from
the North. If those magnificent armies
could meet in July, 1887, they would "pre
sent arms'' to each other. If the cause of
the North was victorious it was not because
the South lacked courage, and we may well
be grateful that after 2-> years the survi
vors, Northern and Sotuthern, shake hands
as citizens of a united country.
The dead of both sides may properly he
honored. The South shoruld be invited to
build as many monuments as they please.
and on any spot to which their dash and
valor give them claim. Those heroes lih
side by side in neighboring graves, and if
the monuments of North and South touch
each other they are simply typical of the
two forces which during the charge were
close enough to cross bayonets.
A New Telephone.
Dr. Cornelius Herz has invented a tele
phone which can be made for 62;1 cents.
Wherever the electric button can be used,
Herz's telephone can be applied. It is es
pecially adapted to use in hotels and resi
dences. With it one can speak as well as
ring. The people will welcome all inven
tions of the kind. They add to the conve
nences we now enjoy.
Fre long the rate on the Bell telephone
will be reduced, and it will be placed within
reach of hundreds who are denied the use
of it by the unreasonable and exorbitant
rental which is demanded by the company.
Illinois proposes that the rental in that
State shall not exceed $:36 per annu~m for
each instrument. New York is canvassing
the question. The price ought to be re
duced by the company itself.-Au'guta
The sprague Fam~ly.
The complicated domestic affairs of the
Sprague family have long held an undue
share of public attention. It will be re

Rhode Island, after being divorced from
the daughter of Chief Justice Chase, ma.r
ried a girl at Staunton, Va., and that his
son Willie further illustrated the f'amiy
tendency to peculiar matrimonial perform
ances by marrying his step-mother's sister
and becommng by that operation his own
uncle-in-law. The boy has now further
proved his devotion to the paternal exam
ple by applying for a divorce from his wife
on the ground that he was not of legal age
