CAMP’S BONDSMEN ANXIOUS.

I he whereabouts of Noah Camp, whose
name was recently discussed by the i
grand jury in connection with the wlitel
of fortune turkey rattling schem • which
was carried on at 110 Broughton street
during the Christmas holidays, is a pain- 1
fill mystery to bis bondsmen. 1 amo and :
his associate, Max Posen, were ;
arrested by Sheriff Koran and lodged in !
jail, l amp was released a few days
afterward under a s3uo bond, upon !
which Henry Wetberhorn and Julius |
Kaullinan were securities.
When tho case of the HI ate vs. Nosh |
Camp, keeping and maintaining a gam- •
tiling room, was called in the Superior
Court a few days ago the defendant turned j
up missing and has been missing ever
since. He was released under bond a few j
days after Christinas, ami from what can j
be learned, did not linger long after he had
walked out from behind the bais. His
bondsmen are anxiously figuring on the
direction he took and what place
he is probably honoring with
his presence, but concerning,
both of these points they are in a state oy\
painful uncertainty. f .

CARRIED HIS JUG ALONG.
A Lumber City Uuii i iiri'icr Under
a Serious Chur-e.
John N. Steele, of Lumber City, was
before United States Commissioner E. C.
Wade yesterday tor illegally selling
liquor. Steele carried the mail between j
Lumber City and Altamaha, a distance
of some fifty miles. The route was trav
eled in a buggy and a witness named Me-
Canuon testified that the carrier used his
vehicle as a sort of saloon. The witness
swore that he had bought two jugs of
whisky from Steele during 188b.' Each
jug contained a gallon and the price per
jug was $2 50. The witness testified that
he had seen others buy frequently of
Steele. The defendant was represented
by three attorneys, Mayor Lester, Col.
William Garrard and Judge Roberts, of
Lumber City. After a preliminary hear
ing he was bound over under S2OO bond to
appear in the District Court Jan. 31.

THE NAVAL STOKES TRADE.
Merchants Discuss the Co-operative
AssoeiM ion’s Movement.
A number of merchants engaged in the
naval stores trade met yesterday aud had
a talk over matters connected with that
important Industry. The warfare against
them, which began last fall and which
apparently quieted down, has, it appeals,
ia„en now hie, aud they are anxious
that ihq erroneous ideas in regard
to their methods ot doing business
should be corrected without delay. What
was said would be done, or what was pro
posed to be done to counteract tho efforts
that are heins made to divert this busi
ness from Savannah is not known, but it
is understood that those who are in
terested do not propose sit still and see
the naval stores trade pass Into other
hands if they can prevent it. A proper
understanding by tne manufacturers of
ihe queslions at issue, it is thought, will
harmonize all conllioting interests.

TWO IMPORTANT CASKS.
Tlic Colton Slates Insurance Com
pany Kel'orc tho Supreme Court.
Tuere were two Important cases on trial
at Atlanta Friday In the Supreme Court.
The first was that of Uickerson vs. the
State, and is an appeal on a conviction
for murder from Bibb county. The facts
of the crime for which the defendant is in
danger ol suffering the law penalty are al
ready known to many.
The Central railroad train one night,
pulling out of town, struck a man when
near the city limits and dragged his body
lor some distance, crush in and mangling
it in a shocking manner belore the train
hands made tho discovery and stopped
the engine. It was at first taken for
granted that the man was either walking
or lying drunk upon tho track wnen the
train came up, and that hecametohis
death livoin injuries received at the time
aud on/he spot. Later, however, certain
susplonous lacts developed, which ap
pealed to indicate that the person killed
iiaiyiiot been alive when run over by the
citfrs, but that he had been murdered and
/hiown upon the track by the assassin lo
Nude the traces of the crime. Tne evi
dence against Uickerson was purely cir
cumstantial, but strong, and later it was
claimed that he ban made a confession of
guilt. Gn the trial in the court below he
was convicted of murder and his attor
neys appealed his case.
After hearing tho argument in the
RicKerson case the supreme Court took
up tne consideration of the famous ease
ol the Cotton .Slates Insurance Company,
the history of which is briefly as follows:
Certain policy holders, some months
back, tiled a bill in the Superior Court ot
Bibb county against the Cotton Sta es
company, setting forth that the officers ot
the concern were mismanaging its af
fairs and charging them with collusion
in measures intended to defraud the
policy holders and depreciate the value
ot their policies. They claim further that
tho company was practically insol
vent and had forfeited lis right
to do business by failure to make the an
nual and semi-annual returns to the Gov
ernor and Comptroller General as re
quired of Ibetn by law, and demanded ot
the court the granting of an injunction
and the appointment of a receiver. The
company, through its attorneys, resisted
the motion aud answered denying the
allegations as above set forth. Judge
Simmons, before whom the matter was
argued, after hearing the arguments of
counsel on both sides, decided in favor of
the defendants to the bill, and the com
plainants excepted to tho decision and
brought tip the case.
1 he case involves assets to the amount
Of $200,000, and since the celebrated fight
against the Southern Mutual Company ol
Atriens. a few years a-o, there has per
haps appeared no case in tho history ol
insurance in this 'tale wtiicu threatened
in itsdetails the development ot so many
sensational points. Tne extraordinary
array of legal talent on both sides is one
of the most noticeable features of the
case.
BEFORE THE M IVOR.
Tho I’olice Make a Big Haul or
“Unlucky Humanity.”

ment was hoard in the case of Percy Olm
stead, plaintiff in certiorari vs. William
Duncan, acting Mayor, etc. The plain
titt was finod in the Mayor’s Court some
time ago for violating a city ordinance
by keeping some hois inside of the city
limits. He claims that he only kept the
hogs in transitu from one market to an
other, and tnat this keeping was not a
violation of the city ordinance. After
argument was finished the Judge took
the record for examination, saving that
he would reserve his decision for a later
date.
Messrs. John Houston, J. E. Biack
shear and P. J. O’Connor were appointed

•JUSTICES OF THE PEACE.
THEIR ORIGIN. POWERS AND
DUTIES AS DEFINED 11Y LAAV.
The Effect of the Solic tor General’s
l etter in K.grd lo Fees Deri vatlou
of theTltie “K,quire” and its Appli
cation—Amertcaus l!e It Because
“It’s Eng'ish. You Know.’’
Solicitor General duliignon stated yes
terday that he has not had a complaint
about magi trates’ costs since he issued
his letter oi Jan. 4. Prior to that time no
had complaints nearly every day and
some days half a dozen. For each criminal
warrant issued by a Justice of the Peace
the Justice is allowed a tee ot $1 25. Un
der a local law he can charge $3 for
drawing a bond, aud has beeu collecting
it at the time the bond was made, which,
the Solicitor Geueral declared, the
Justices had no right to do.
Every Magistrate, ex-Olfiuio Justice
of the Peace or Constable is required to
keep a printed or plainly written copy of
the lee bill posted up conspicuously in
his office, and the Savannah magistrates
do it.
MAGISTRATES’ .TU ItISDiCTION.
The criminal jurisdiction of Justices of
the Peace is defined in the State Code.
Justices ol the Peace fiavecrimmal juris
diction in issuing warrants for the appre
hension ot any person charged on oath
with a violation of ihe penal code, or
who are so known to them officially; In
examining such persons, when brought
belore them and to commit, bind over and
discharge. They also act as conservators
of the public peace.
The office or the Justice of the Peace
was established at a.i early date in the
history ot the English law. In those
times they were called conservatores
paces, or as nowadays conservators ol
toe peace. They and and not dtrivu their
powers then exactly as they do now.
Some claimed their power by prescrip
tion; some asserted it by virtue ol the
tenure ol their lands, while the most of
them were elected by the freeholders of
tho county.
ENGLISH MAGISTRATES.
In the year 1327 the system of election
was discontinued in England, and Parlia
ment ordained that such magistrates
should receive their appointment from the
King or under bis commission. They
were still styled conservators, wardens
or keepers of the peace until 1361, when,
as Blackstone states, they acquired me
mere honorable appeliaii >n ol justices.
They are now appointed by tne Lord
(Jhauoellor by virtue ol the Queen’s spe
cial commission under the great
seal. The lorm of commission ad
dressed to the justices was determined
in 1590. Certain property qualifications
are required of the English justice. In
Georgia all persons are eligible to the
office ol Justice of the Peace who are en
titled iu the county in which the district
Is situated to vote for the members ol the
General Assembly, who have been three
months in the district next preoedmg the
election and wno do not labor under any
disqualification,
SERVE WITHOUT PAY.
Asa general rule the Eugllsh justices
serve gratuitously, but in the cities ai.d
large towns there are stipendiary justices
who receive a fixed compeut-atiou. in
the United States tne institution of Jus
tices ot the Peace has been adopted from
Euglatid. In Georgia they are elected by
the people, hut, in some States they are
appointed hv the Gov-rnor.
T he civil jurisdiction of the justice Is
dittoed at lengtn in the State code.
Among other things he is authorized to
perform the marriage ceremony. In this
respect he is put ou the same grounds
with tho minister ot the gospel. If he
marries it couple without a license he is
punishable by a tine not exceeding SI,OOO.
Justices have jurisdiction in all civil
cases arising ex contractu, ana in cases
of Injuries or damages to personal prop
erty woen the principal sum does not ex
ceed SIOO.
TUE NOBLE NAME OF ’SQUIRE.
The term esquire, so familiar to older
citizens as carrying with it a certain de
gree of dignity when attached to a Jus
tice of the Peace, is au ancient term
dating from the time of the Roman em
pire, though it was in most common use
under ihe feudal system, \xhicn latter
dominated the whole of Europe. The
name and title was originally given to an
armor-bearer who was an attendant on a
knight. As ibis ollioe in times of chivalry
was mostly borne by persons of good fam
ily, the word esquire came to be used in
England lor the rank next below knight
and above simple gentlemen. The young
est sons of peers, who are now called hon
orables, their eldest sous and those of
knights, the justices oi the peace, sheriffs
ot counties, sergeants-at-law aud doctors
of divinity are esquires, by virtue pi tbeir
rank or office.
ESQUIRES BY PRESCRIPTION.
Heads oi ancient families are esquires
by prescription and hence the word has
come to be used as a common addition to
the names of all who hold the rank ot
gentlemen. Au esquire was formerly
created by the king by putting a silver
collar around his ni ck aid bestowing on
him a pair of spurs—not unlike the cos
tume of tue “Georgia Major,” a pair ot
spurs and a paper collar. But nowadays
the title of e-quire is so generally lie
stowed that it has lost Its strict technical
value. Iu the United States the title is
given to pit him officers of all degrees,
from governors down to justices and at
torneys. Indeed, the title, in addressing
letters, is bestowed on any person at
pleasure, and contains no detiuiio de
scription. it Is, in fact, merely an ex
pression of respect.
Another Ymr .l* tlie ilfanhattili,
The annual siatemeut of the Manhat

THE M ILK eIT BASKET.
Vegetables Scarce lint Prices
Generally Uncliaugetl.
The market dealers report vegetables
scarce, though selling at about the usual
prices. The oold weather, they say,
stopped the growth of those that were
coming on and new ones are not yet iu the
market. Cabbage, both Northern and
home-raised, were unusually scarce yes
terday afternoon: some tew ones sold as
Uign as 40c. each. The reason of the
scarcity ot tnis vegetable is that the
growers have cleared the ground of all the
winter crop so as to commence plantiug
tor the spring crop.
Notwithstanding the scarcity of almost
every kind of vegetable, the prices remain
about the same. The dealers say that the
people wili do without betore they will
stand any great raise in prices.
The following vegetab es were in the
market yesterday aiternuon and sold a’
the prices given: Lettuce, scarce, 10c. a
bunch; radishes, sc. a bunch; onions. 10c.
a quart, or two quarts for 15c.; cabbage,
mostly Northern, and quite scarce, 15c. ut
400. a head; turnips, 10c. a quart; celery
65c. a large bunch: oyster plant, 10c. a
bunoh, or two bunches tor 10c.; parsnips,
15c. a quart; carrots, 15e. a quart; beets,
