Their Sentences-Supremo Court Up
holds Lower Court in Noted Case.
(Anderson Tribuno.)
Tho u Mir mut lou of the verdict of
tin? lower court in tho Walter Hays
and lid. Wilson case, which virtually
means Mint tho two men must serve
tho sentence imposed on them by
Judgo Moore, is another step in one
of the most important murder cases
in tlie history of Anderson county.
Walter Hays, lid. Wilson, Allen
Emerson and George Wilson were
placed on trial in tho Court
of General Sessions lust fall
in tho September term, charged
with tho murder of Tom Frank Ha
mey, luttant farmer, who was bru
tally shot ard clubbed to death in
Iiis own yard in the Carswoll Insti
tute section, fourteen miles south of
this city. Allen Emerson and George
Wilson were acquitted of tho mur
der rbargo, and Hays and his bro
ther-ln-law, Ed. Wilson, were found
guilty of manslaughter and recom
mended to tho mercy of the court.
During the trial of the case, which
attracted much attention and drew
largo crowds to court during the
Caree days it was in progress, it de
veloped that the party of men, con
sisting of those mentioned in the
foregoing sen toncos and Toni Hays,
brother of tho defendant, wein to
Hamey's home, drove their car into
his yard, nnd while ono of tho party
held a gun on Ramey as he sat mend
ing an nutomohilo casing under ;i
shade lire. Tom Hays was told lo
advance ?un? do whatever lu; "wanted
to" willi a pick handle.
According to tho testimony of Mrs.
Ramey, 1er husband was brutally
clubbed and beaten over the head,
and even after be had fallen pros
trato on (he ground Waller Hays
picked up a baby's rocking chair
nearby and broke it over the body
of the slain man. During the shoot
ing affray, Harney Hamey, a lad of
J ii years, secured his father's Win
chester rillte and fired a fatal shot
into tho body of Tom Hays before
members ?f the Hays party could
wrest the gun from his hands. The
men then picked up tho body of Tom
Hays, placed it in their car and drove
away, answering Mrs. Hamey's plea
not to leave ber alone with her dy
ing husband, with a "Let him die,
.-damn him."
In sentencing Hays and Wilson on
Sept. 2?5, Judgo Moore stilted that
tho Jury, in bis opinion, had taken a
very lenient view of the caso in rec
ommending mercy, and expressed be
lief that both men were guilty of
murder. Tho two defendants, who
reside nt Starr, will be committed to
tho Stato penitentiary, or to tho pub
lic works of the county, in the near
future unless something unexpected

Ueforo the war there were 1,038 wo

proportion is 1,111 to 1,000. Tho

In Russia, where tho number of wo

Attorney General Walfe So Adjvess
Mrs. Julian H. Salley.
(Columbia State.)
Attorney General Wolfe has ad
vised Mrs. Julian B. Salley, third re
gional director, National League of
Women Voters, that women are not
qualified to sit as Jurors. Mrs. Sal
ley wroto Mr. Wolfe that women
were rather timid abovtt registering
for fear that they would "bo subject
to jury duty. They cannot servo on
juries In the Circuit Courts, Attor
ney General Wolfe says, as the con
stitution provides that the Jury shall
bo composed of twelve men.
An act of the Legislature In 1021
also specifically exempts, "female
electors" from this duty, the A Kor
ney General advises Mrs. Salley. His
letter is as follows:
"Replying to your letter of June
SO, I note that you say that the wo
men arc timid about registering for
voting for fear that they will subject
themselves to Jury duty, and request
ing my advice in tho premises. I re
mind you that I have heretofore held
that, under Section 22, Article V, of
the State Constitution, women are
not qualified to sit as petit jurors In
the Circuit Cocrts, inasmuch ns the
Constitution ?peoiflcally prescribes
that the petit Jury In the Circuit
Court shall consist of twelve men.
However, to set at rest all differ
ences of opinion on tho part of tho
women voters, the General Assem
bly, by act approved March 7, 1921,
(seo acts of 1921, pages 2G9-270,
inclusive), amende" Section 4037,
Volume 1, of the Cot.e of 1912, so as
to Include in tho list of those exempt
from jury duty 'female electors.'
Heneo the fear of Jury duty should
deter no woman from registering

Confederate Wears Yank's Leg.
Frederlcksburg, Va., July 7.
Many Interesting incidents of the

In ono of tho earlier battles of tho
Civil War, replaced lt with a costly

wounded In a skirmish at Whito's
Tavern, near Richmond, In 1864, at
tho hands of J. E. B. Stuart's mon.
His artificial leg by chanco fell Into
tho hands of somo of Mosby's mon,
who presented it to Capt. Ballard,
an officer of Mosby's command, who

Has Tried Sweetened Poisons-binds
Dust Form tho Best.
(W. A. Harris in Elberton Star.)
Editor Elberton Star:
I am always reading something In
every ptfper about calcium arsenato
killing boll weevils. I want to say
that calcium arsenate dust is tho
thing to kill boll weevils. I have
tried it to my own satisfaction for
two years. 1 also tried the syrup
preparations, lt killed lots of wee
vils and did lots of good, but thc
dust is much better and much easier |
applied. I will not use anything that
the government does not recommend.
I have talked face to 'face with somo
of the government experts on killing
boll weevils. They say tho govern
ment has spent thousands and thou
sands of dollars trying everything
and only recommend the dust.
Hero aro some facts about what I
did in 1921. I had five acres of cot
ton in my own crop. Two acres with
out any poison at all mado ono balo
of cotton. I used calcium arsenate
dust on the othor three acres, under
tho government's instructions?. . and
made three bales of cotton. In 1920
those five acre3 mado eicht bales of
cotton. So if God spares my lifo this
year everything on the pince ls go
ing to use calcium arsenate.
I am glad to see our county banks
willing to help tho farmers on thia
line. It shows a good spirit in them.
If wo don't all pull together wo will
all soon bo gono financially.
