In motions made by the Attorney Gen
eral for the arrest of the defendants
and for taking the . testimony either
before the 'Supreme Court or before a
Commissioner appointed for that pur
pose. The attorneys for the defense
announce that they will not resist the
motions, and orders for the arrest of
the parties accused of contempt are
expected at any time.
When the cases were first brought
the attorneys for Sheriff Shipp and the
other defendants set up a plea that the
Supreme Court had no jurisdiction,
but the decision, was rendered to the
contrary, and the cases will now be
tried on their merits. It is intimated
that a Special Commissioner will be
sent , here to take the testimony, and
that the Government will be repre
sented in the hearing by Solicitor Gen
eral Henry M. Hoyt, who has conduct
ed the case up to this time.
The Government has secured a long
list of witnesses, which include news
paper men and others who were on the
bridge when Johnson was lynched. He
was convicted in the Circuit Court
here, and his attorneys (white) made
no effort to appeal the case. , Negro
lawyers then took a hand and an
pealed to the United States Circuit
Judge for a habeas corpus, which was
denied. An appeal was made to the
Supreme Court and granted by iustice

Justice Harlan was ratified by the
court, and that night Johnson was
