W. T. Jones. convicted wife mur

and sound in the penitentiary, where
he will spend the balance of his days
Convicted of the killing of his own
wife. Marion Jones, the prisoner.
who has spent many months in the
Union jail, was Monday evening re
fused a rehearing by the Supreme
Court. and the remittitur was sent
down Amediately. The Supreme
Court. in a few words. tells that
Jones's only hope for even a stay of
sentence is over:
"After careful consideration of the
within petition. the Court is unable
to discover that any material matter
or question has been overlooked or
disregarded. It Is. therefore, order
ed that the petition be dismissed and
that the order heretofore granted.
staying remittitul. be revoked." Thia
order, signed by Chief Justice Ira B.
Jones. and Associate Justices Eugene
B. Gary and C. A. Woods, means a
life long term in the Penitentiary
for W. T. Jones.
As no Federal question Is involved
the opinion of attorneys is that the
case Is ended, and that Jones must
spend the remainder of his days in
the Stae prison, unless a petition for
pardon should be granted. There was
considerable talk of an appeal to
the United States Court at the time
Jones's case was afflrmed by the Su
preme Court of this State. birt this
is not regarded as within the range
W. T. Jones, wealthy planter, of
Santuie. Union county. has a serious
crime to- lie wake nights and think
over when he comes to the State pris
on. His wife, on July 8. 1908. met
a horrible deat& by strychnine and
the testimony pointed to her hus
band as the guilty man. Statements
of his counted strongly against him
at the trial. A chain of circumstan
tial evidence was woven around him.
and in February, 1909. a jury de
lared Jones was guilty of murder.
MFhe case, while as to the evidence.
must have been very strong against
Jones. Instances of ill treatment of
bis wife and testimony that on the
night of the killing cursing was

tered the room of a man, who stop
ped at her .home one night, these
and other matters were brought out
ag the trial. It is even true that ef
forts were made to cast a shadow
upon the character of Mrs. Jones.
In order t.o save her husband from
the band of the law. She was then

Asuide from the general interest

WILL GO IT ALONE
BAPTISTS AGAINST MERGIG IN
Northern Baptists Want Southern
Baptists to Help Them Help the
Brother In Black.
Home missions furnished one hun
dred topics for consideration at Fri
day's session of the Southern Baptist
Convention. now in session at Balti
more. The Rev. Dr. Burrows report
ed that there was a general increase
during the past year of $114.000 for
the home and foreign mission boards.
The board of home missions en
dorsed strongly the policy of the
Southern Baptist Convention of .hav
ing no "entangling alliance" with oth
er Christian bodies that can in any
way endanger the Baptist doctrines
or practices as Baptists.
This utterance referred specifically
to the labors of the board in Pana
ma and Cuba, where it was stated
that the work was progressing rapid
ly, but that diffe;lties in the way
of the work of both the Sunday
schools and other phases have de
veloped in the trend towards "so
called church union efforts and the
obliteration of denominational lines."
"We report." the board adds. that
the lives of professing Christians who
go to the Canal Zone for money-mak
ing are a hindrance instead of a help
to Ehe Baptist church. Then, too,
the efforts of some Caristian workers
to discredit denominational work in
the interests of an undefended Chris
tian union are adding to the difmcul
ties of our missions."
The report. thourrh not stating
specifically. was aimed at the Young
Men's Christian Association, accord
ing to a statement by the Rev. E. C.
Dargan. of Macon. Ga.. member o
the Cuba and Panama committee.
After the session he said:
Un Cuba and Panama the T. M. C
A. stands for undenominational pre

Church has always. and will always

These partial returns indicate that
in probably all of the States South

crease in population since the last ap

Eagles. now busy gathering food
for their young, are creating no end

nesting among the crags of the Cas

their presence is the increased num
