Lyons, Ga., Oct. 5. Sheriff Cul

ers, were this morning shot (and
seriously wounded by Adams Drig

shot and killed himself, when an ef
fort was made to place him under
arrest ST th1Tequest "oTIiis lam.
The shooting occurred ten miles from
this place and it is believed that the
wounded will recover.
The trouble started when Adams
I Driggers got into a quarrel over a
business transaction and left th
Driggers home vowing to return and
kill everybody on the place. Accord
ing to Chief of Police Bailey, short
ly afterwards Adams Driggers came
back and his brother called Sheriff
Culpepper, telling him of the affray
and adding that Adams had returned
intoxicated. The sheriff went to the
place and was struck in the hip by
a load of buckshot. Adams then fired

Jacksonville, Oct. 5. John H. Pope,
local attorney, took the stand in his
own behalf today at his trial on a
charge of murder in the first degree.
The defense announced it had no
other witnesses, and began its argu
ment on a motion for an instructed
verdict in favor of the defendant. The
argument had not been concluded
when the case went over until to
morrow. The state . rested early in
the afternoon's session.
Pope . was on the stand less than
an hour. He denied unequivocally that
he had any knowledge of the impend
ing robbery of the Palace theatre
the night of September 4 by Frank
Rawlings, who shot and killed George
H. Hickman, manager of the play
house. Pope admitted he had very
probably been at certain places de
scribed by the state's witnesses. ' He
denied that he had told Erwin and
Johnny Novinzky, state witnesses,
when he borrowed their car on the
night of the killing, that he and Rai
lings were going to "stick up" the
theatre. . :
Victim of Cireumstancest
ine story was to the ettect that he
was a victim of circumstances. He had
defended Rawlings and W. C. Melton
at their trial on a grand larceny
charge. Melton was arrested in con
nection with the present case, but
ischarged after a grand jury inves
tigation and so far as known left the
ity immediately. Neither Rawlings
nor Melton had ever paid him any
thing because of their lack of money,
Pope said. On the night of the kill
ing Rawlings told him that he had
learned that Melton had received
some money from his sister. He ask
cd that Pope come with him and he
would make Melton pay Pope some
thing for the two of them. Rawlings
had the impression that Melton ac.
quiring some money had gone "under
cover." Rawlings suggested they
get Novinzky's automobile as he did
not know where Melton was. Pope
obtained the use of the car and they
drove to a down town pool room, the
location of which is one block behind
the theatre and one block west. Raw
lings went in "the search of Melton
and returned in a few minutes say
ing he lived up the street about a
block. They then drove to a point a
little more than a block to the rear
of the theatre. There Rawlings again
sought to find Melton while Pope
waited. He waited a considerable time
he said, probably three quarters of
an hour, getting out of the car fre
quently as he became impatient for
Rawlings to return. Finally he drove

Jacksonville, Oct. 5. Mayor John
W. Martin today directed the chief
of police to center the department's
efforts toward ridding the city of
its alleged gambling element.
The mayor was last night vested
with the authority of a grand jury in
the summoning of persons claiming to
have information of, the (activities
of book-makers and other gamblers,
said to be operating here. The mayor
said he did not believe any gambling
existed in this city and decried the
articles appearing in a local news
paper which, he said,-were "a menace:
to the city." Several of the commis
sioners at the hearing last night, how
ever, disagreed with his view. The
law enforcement league, a civic body,
has called a meeting for tomorrow
night for the purpose of investigating
the "alleged unlawful conditions.
Hudson Convicted,
Makes Appeal for
Another Hearing
(By Assuclnteil Press)
Albany, Ga., Oct. 5. Counsel for
Glen Moore Hudson, convicted and
sentenced today to be hanged, made a
motion for a new trial which was set
for November 11. Hudson was con
victed without recommendation of
mercy of the murder of his two step
sons, and the hanging was fixed for
November 18.
Hudson, who had shown no outward
emotion during the trial except for
trembling voice as he told the jury
yesterday he was innocent, heard the
verdict today without a quiver, but
his face flushed slightly as the court
uttered the legal phrase, "to be)
hanged by the neck until dead."
Mr.s Hudson, jointly indicted with
her husband, and due to go to trial
here next Monday, broke into vio
lent sobbing when the news was con
veyed to her in her cell. She reiterat
ed however, according to those pre
sent the story Sheriff Tarver ascribed
to her, that Hudson shot the little
boys.

Paris, Oct. 5. A rear end collision
of two suburban trains in the half
mile tunnel leading to the St. NazairQ
railway station tonight lead to terri
fying scenes and the death of many
persons bound on their homeward
journey from Paris. The wrecked
cars burst into flames and the disas
ter was made all the more terrible
by the explosion of a gas reservoir.
At a late hour tonight sixteen
bodies had been recovered. Twenty
persons are known to have been
seriously injured and sixty others
slightly injured. This, however, given
no idea of the extent of the disaster
because the firemen and others en
gaged in the work of rescue have
been unable to get any distance with
in the tunnel owing to the gas fumes.
Flames Spread .Rapidly
The fire spread with great rapidi
ty and for a time cries of distress
and the moans of the dying were
heard on all sides but these finally
were silenced though the crackling
of th eblazing wooden coaches could
still be heard.
The firemen were not prepared for
the barrage of poisonous fumes which
assailed them as they reached the
scene. Finally they succeeded in play
ing four streams on the last coaces
at the St. Nazaire end of the tunnell
but these were empty and not burn
ing while seventeen coaches in the
center of the tunnell far away from
the firemen's efforts were burning
fiercely.
At no time could they get closer
than 500 feet from the infprnn.
Nevertheless every now and then a
passenger with blackened face would
come straggling out begging the
helpless firemen, police and soldiers
to enter the tunnell and save those
dying within.
One official described the scene as
'a vision of hell."
