AX INTERESTING : VASE; FRANKLIN'S CHEEKY ' , ) APPEARANCE, ETC.-c v ' , ? FiASKXis, April -27tn, 1885." ' Judge Gilmer reached here this morn ing at 10 o'clock, having made 'the drive from Webster in three liours tmd forty eight minutes, the last five miles being made in thirty-five minutes. Capt. J. B. Young's famous pacer, Santa Claup, bad the honor of expediting the Judic iary and winning honors for; himself. The Judiciary was ' not exhausted by any means, . but t immediately entered upon a new tpur of duty. The Court was promptly '- organized, thji Grand "J pry ably chargedr.wut Solicitor- Fergu-: son-entered on' his work. An examina-j tion-of his docket develops .af unusual numhenof misdemeanor, but very little of crime. jOnly four .eases .of . larceny appear, which speaks well of the hon esty of the people. .' There i -rather a liberal exhibition , f assaults' - and. bat teries, a smaller number of affrays and a goodly number 6f yielding to the temp tation of carrying, concealed weapons. Among the cases are 'twenty-one bilk against a woman, one Lotty Calloway, for "Belling whiskey without license. There is one case of burglary ia which n is hoped and believed that toe char acter, of the accused: will be amply vin dicated. ' He is a young man of a highly respectable 'and influential family, far removed above the temptation' to the crime with which he stands charged, and with no antecedents which might properly subject him to suspicion. He will , probably hi put on trial "to-mor row. A case was tried this afternoon which just one year ago was the'occosioh : of wide spread interest in mis and adjoin ing counties. Early in April of laet year a party of young inn were working one of the public roads. There was much emulation between them and some rath er rough bantering, relative to work and capabilities; . This was more especially with Benjamin Buchanan and. James W. Shepperd, the latter scarcely come of age, the other older and a married man, though a very yoong one. .Buchanan, enraged at an insulting expression of Shepperd, suddenly raised the hoe with which he was working, and struck Shep perd a heavy blow ugon the. very crown of the head as be bad turned to resume his work. He did not fall until he bad reached his -house, several hundred yards .distant, which he did bathed in blood, .then. falling unconscious on the floor. Physicians were obtained as soon as possible iroui franklin. tiis skull was found to he cleft open, fragments of the skull driven into the lacerated brain, i and in dressing and cleaning the wound a very material Quantity of the brain ' sraa -removed-. - Dr.. I.vl a. rjeaetitioner of hong standing and exleiisTve practice, told me that he had never knOwn any one to survive the removal of so much of the brain, and that in nine cases out of ten the injury would have been followed by death in twenty four hours. Shep perd ' is well and gave in his testimony this afternoon with a clearness and directness that proved that his intellect ual powers were not materially impaired. tie is said however to nave bad slizut attacks of epilepsy since his recovery. : At the close of the. testimony the de fendant submitted to a verdict of guilty and was sentenced to eight months im prisonment in the county, jail which with a prisoner's ttmfinement will go to make up a year in prison for an oflence which seems to have come lroin a sudden impulse of uncontrollable terrper rather than from notice or premeditation. The punishment falls heavily upon a sick wife and helpless children, and justice might ask for. no more. . Franklin wears a cheery appearance. The newly created municipal authorities have done much good work in repairing streets, making siue walks, providing crossings, and in planting snade trees which Btretch out in long rows, enclosed in newly white washed boxing and have a look of h ealtb , care and -taste. There is not much building' going on. Mr. A. S. Bryson has a large stock of bricks ready for the erection of a building near the Arlington Hotel. The three hotels here are in good keeping and well kept. The Arlington, the youngest, by Mr. Bryson is very pleasantly eitnated and is very popular. D- C. Cunningham, with the additions to his . house maintains, if he has not increased, his popularity; for the house is1 full to overflewing.; The house of Mr. and Mrs. N. G. Allman is as charming to me as it always has .been. Finding my way there once, I have al ways been" true, to it.' Hera are Judge Gilmer, Solicitor Ferguson, .
