Katon business associate ot uovernor Haskell, was shown a dispatch today to the ' effect that 16 witnesses were coming from Hastings, Mich., to testify, but refused to make any comment.

Mr. Study included in his motion that John F. Robbins be appointed captain of the paraders. The motion was made in the pres ence of the jury hearing the Jones case and a crowded court room. It was greeted with laughter and the judge raised his gavel as an indica tion the merriment must not continue. He did not act upon the motion. Suggested Hiring Barouche. The scene developed from an at tempt on the part of Study to Induce Robbins to have the case of Scott vs. Null set for hearing one week from to morrow. Mr. Robbins refused saying Mr. Rupe is associated in the case, and he (Robbins) did not know if the date would be satisfactory to Rupe. Study then suggested that Robbins hire a barouche and go out in search of Rupe. He said he would do it but couldn't pay for it. The telephone had been used but Rupe could not be lo cated. Witnesses in the case have been in court twice and each time a continu ance was taken. The case had been set for a hearing in each instance." One of the witnesses is Mrs. Eliza beth Fausler, who is 66 years old. She has been required to make the trip from near Jacksonburg each time to be disappointed by the idiosyncracies of the attorneys.

In the sentencing at Farmville, this state, yesterday, of Marcus Lindsay and his wife, a negress, to serve 18 years in the penitentiary, one of the most uni que cases in the history of the state has developed. Lindsay is the son of a white woman, and. although he be lieved he had negro blood in his veins and associated with members of that race, the court held that he had enough Caucasian blood to be legally white. Lindsay recently was married to Sophy Jones, a negress, the widow of another negro, and has since lived with her. The two were indicted on the ground that Lindsay is a white man, who married a negress, and be cause Sophy married a white man. be ing a negress, the law prohibiting inter-marriages between the races. The judge declared, however, that while he was forced to pronounce sen tence, he would petition the governor to pardon the prisoners, but on condi tion that all marital relations between them should cease.
