LOST ZEPPELINS :
!BLOW TO GERMANY
Half Of Effeclirt Airtkip
Fleet Has Beea De
Germany pobably lost one-half of
her total effective fleet of super-Zeppelins
on the day of October .J20 in the
disastrous raid over England, accord
ing to official cablegrams received in
Washington. All France is exultant
over what the dispatches declare to be
tho greatest defeat over administered
to an air fleet sinoe the beginning of
the war. Thevgratification fe more in
tense becauso it is known that this
German raid was an attempt to carry
out a fearful threat of vengeance made
four days before
On that occasion the German gov
ernment sent out a warning to both
France and England of dire punish
ment to follow what Germans de
clared to be unwarranted and inhu
man, attacks by British and French
aviators upon peaceful German towns.
Reprisals were threatened in an offi
cial German communicatlon.-which in
part reads: -.J'For
every brick that falk from,
neaceful German homes; wholerows
of buildings will be overthrown in.
There were thirteen monster Zep
pelins in the raid, and' about' naif of
these with their crews were captured,
and it is considered to be a death blow
to Gerqpny in air fighting.

R. C. HOPSON.
In the Democratic primary election
in August there wece several candi-J
dates for tne ofneeof Jailer and a com
plete surprise was sprung when R.
C. Hopson came under the siring
with, votes to spare, flfs strength
and running qualities had been over
looked and the wayl he could get
votes was a revelation to the old
timers. Mr. Hopsonisji native of this coun
ty andNmost of his active life has been
spent on a farm, or In running a
country store- A few years acrd'he
came t6 town and tried the grocery
business without muctu success, be
yond the fact that if gave him a wide
acquaintance in the city as well as the'
county, that brought him many a
vote in his contest. He represents
upon the ticket a part of the county
that has. seldom if ever had a county
officer and tho Bainbridge people are
fjr him almost to a man. He is a
moral and upright man, a consisten)
member of. the Baptist church, and in
thess days of corrupt politics this is
by no means a small factor in a race
for an office of as much responsibili
ty as jailer.
Mr. Hopson has the disadvantage
of having as his opponent one of the
strongest men on the Ra publican tick
et, but he has demonstrated that he is
something of a runner himself and is
proceeding in a leisurely, systematic
and effective way to get the votes
necessary to elect him. ' Things are
looking rosy for the whole ticket and
Mr. Hopson is tipped as practically
certain to be the next jailer.
