The CincinnatiTimes Star pays
the following tribute to Judge
R. G. Williams, for the splendid,
manner in which he has conducted
the office, of prosecuting attorney
of the Ronton district: "Common
wealth's Attorney Richard G.
Williams, since the session of the
recent grand jury, has set a rt3cord
for securing convictions in criminal
cases which has never been equaled
in Kenton county. In all, fift
cases from indictments returned
have been prosecuted by Mr. Wil
liams and in each case he has se
cured a conviction. The only
other case, that of George Wolten
betg. charged with robery, resulted
in a hung jury and a new trial will
be forthcoming. This record is
considered remarkable, as the State
makes no provision for securing evi
dence in these cases. The grand
jury report contained a recommend
tion that members of the Legis
lature from Kenton county do all
in their power to secure a State
appropriation f jr the employment
I of a detective to aid the Common
wealth's attorney, but no action
was ever taken in the matter".
The above was followed by a list
of 23 convictions secured in such
cases since Feb.
