The conviction of Govan Beard for criminal assault on Mrs. A: Hartley was perfectly legal, and In eplte of the denial of the prisoner of his srullt, the bulk of the evidence favored the supposed victim, al? though her reputation was not of the best. The woman's testimony was convincing; and the negro was tried and found guilty in ? very short time by the court at Helena. A sen tt^nce of death was pronounced and the case was taken to the Supreme Court. There the ruling of the Cir? cuit Court waa affirmed and the hanging fixed for July 18. Nothing could Intervene but a pardon or respite from the governor. THE "VICTIM"' WORRIED. After the trial was over which branded Beard as guilty of an infa? mous crime, Mrs. Hartley, or Mrs. McCabb, aa she was then known, became worried, for she said that she didn't know that urn penalty met ed out to Beard would be death, or ahe would not have warped tbe facts as ahe did. She went to South Mc Alleater. I. T., and lived there a whlle, then she went to Port Smith and back to Helena. Her con? science would not rest and She was haunted by the thought of her per While riding to Forrest City from Helena the woman came upon hul and ing man. and remarked that she was sorry 1 was going to be hung f?vr nothing.
