Savannah, Oct, 26 The situa tion in Screven county as to the result of the murder of Sheriff Brooker by the Zeigler brothers, according to last night's reports, is most serious and really remark able for a civiiized community. The Zeiglers are entrenched at their homestead, about five miles south of Sylvania and swear that they will not be taken alive, The Zeiglerr are populists and the district is a populist one. They have besides a number of re'a tives and family connections living in the country right around them all of whom have espoused their cause and sworn to stand by them to the death. A dozen or more of the close friends and relatives of the Zeiglers remain in their house or in the immediate neigh borhood, it is said, and all are armed to the teeth. The house, it is said, is a perfect arsenal of shotguns, Winchester rifles and revolvers. It occupies a com manding position and the garrison inside could do terrible execution against any party which attempted to invade their stronghold. THROUGH A TRESTLI4 An F. C. & P.
