subscription to the hotel. A meeting was

State against Ransom, for rune, forty
Jurors were examined in completing the
jury. Two went off for cause, six were op
posed to capital punishment, live were
struck off by the .State and tlfteeu were ob
jected to by the defendant. The evidence
of Estep, the stepfather of the little girl
and an Episcopal minister, was fatal in its
effects to the State’s case. He said that
after Ransom was confined In the Chntti
nooga jail, he toldjltuu-om that if he would
sign a pledge never to touch liquor again,
and would pay him #IOO, he would do bis
best to get him out. Ransom gave him an
order for #IOO, of which he collected #47 50.
Tins and the swearing out of the warrant
two weeks after the offense was committed
had great influence in acquitting Ransom.
Governor Gordon has pardoned Mandy
Riggins, who iseonfhieda! Dade coal mines.
She was sent up in 1874 from Pike county
for iulanticide to serv * a life-time sentence,
she Governor’s order says: Whereas,

The premature explosion of a blast ontho
Chattanooga, Columbus and Southern rail
road at a point three miles south of Bremen,
a station oil the Georgia Pacific railway,
cause I the death of three convicts Saturday.
The Chattahoochee Brick company, of At
lanta, has the contract to build this road,
and in its construction is using convicts.
The accident which caused the death of the
three men was in a cut. The manner in
w hich tiie cut was being taken out was by
blasting out the dirt in large blocks.
The explosion oceurrisi while the now
dcr whs being put in. and the theory ad
vanced is that h small piece of fuse had
gotten in with the powder. Superintendent
McAul had charge of the work, and was on
the top of the hill through which the cut
was being made, while the convicts were
Glow, ready to take out the dirt when the
fall was made. When the explsiim took
place an immense block of dirt fell into the
cut, burying three convicts a distance of
fifteen foot under the ground. When they
were dug out life was ex inct. None of
their bones were broken. The remains of
the convicts we. e taken to Atlanta for the

Griffin News: The damage suits growing
out of the killing of throe negro preachers
last summer by the Atlanta and West Point
railroad, a few miles below Newnan, have
not yet been called at the nresc-nt session of
Coweta Superior ( oitrt. The amounts sued
for aggregate 800,(100. Last week an at
torney of the road effected a compromise
with the families of the deceased men, who
reside in Meriwether and Pike counties, by
the payment of £7OO to each family, tak
ing receipts in full settlement of all
demands against the road, etc. New
naii lawyers say that such a proceeding is
not only a flagrant violation of theethi s of
the legal profession, but is without prece
dent in that judicial circuit. They claim,
moreover, that the alleged settlement is
clearly an admis ion of toe liability on the
part of the railroad, and in nowise relieves
it from the responsibility of suit mjreov >r
fees claimed by counsel for the plaintiffs.
P. F. Smith, P. 11. Brewster and P. S.
Whatley were employed by plaintiffs to
bring suit against the railroad company
and as settlement was made with their
clients without notice to them (plaintiff’s at
torneys), they will proceed with the eases as
if no settlement had been effected.
Marietta Journal: Home two or three
weeks ago a young man eaine to this place
who gave his name as Joo Green, and said
he was from North Carolina, He hired to
Mr. McConkey for a few days, and then to
W. L. Me Rea a few days, and from
there lie went to Paulding county, and on
Feb. 25 a letter came to the office at this
place addressed to Joe W. Green. The
Postmaster gave it out to George W. Green
through mistake, and G. W. Green
opened it, without looking at the address,
and read it, as most any one would have
done, through curiosity. It was from
Joe W. Green’s brother, near I,enoir,
N. C., telling him that the man
he shot was dead, and that
his lawyer’s advice was for him to get out
of the United Btates as early as possible.
G. W. Green, with Marshal A. B. Smith,
went in search of him at once, and soon
found and arrested him, and are still hold
ing him in custody, waiting to hear from
where he committed the murder, but as vet
they have had no satisfactory news. Joe
Green acknowledged to having shot a man
by the name of Triplett, but claims that he
did it in self-defense, and doesn’t seem to be
at all uneasy, as lie says he thinks he will
come clear.

The River and Harbor Committee of the
House having heard the Florida membersin
tiehalf of appropriations for that State, has
blocked out most of the Florida features of
tiie river and harbor bill. The indications
are that the State will fare pretty well.
There having been no appropriations for
the rivers and harbors of Florida last season
the disposition is to be pretty liberal this
year, especially in view of the prospect that
there may be no new harbor bill at the next
session. Cumberland Sound will probably
get about $125,009, Apalachicola harbor
8100,000, Pensacola harbor $lO,OOO, Tampa
bay $12,000 and the St. John’s bar $lOO,OOO.
Of course those estimates ure subject to re
vision when the bill is gone over for the
last time, but it is now understood that the
sums w ill be about as above indicated.
East Tohopekaliga lake is one of the love
liest lakes iu Florida. It is nearly round,
being five miles in length and four and a
half iu width. It is perfectly free fro n
islands, so that the view is wholly unob
structed. The lowering of the lake about
eight feet has formed a magnificent saudy
beach around the entire lake. A drive is
now being constructed around the lake
which will be one of the finest drives in the
State. On the southern end of the lake A.
K. McClure, of Philadelphia, lias a large
plantation in cultivation. On the north
east is the thriving English colonv of Nar
cosse, while at the southeastern end is the
new town of Kunnymede. This place is
owned by the Philadelphia company, of
w hich John L. Hill is manager and James
Forrest, of Kissimmee City, the Superin
tendent.
John Drawdy claimed $34 for thirty-four
cords of wood furnished the sugar works at
St. Cloud and took out an attachment under
the lien law for that amount. The Sheriff
levied on all the wood at the mill, about
300 cords, shutting down the works and
causing a complete loss of all the juice
which had been ground and the cane whic.i
had been cut. Capt. Rose said he did not
owe the debt and the bill had never been
presented. Ho has commenced suit against
Mr. Drawdv’s bondsmen for $5OO a day
damages for every day the mill is stopped
ami for the damages to the cane. This is
very much regretted, as the company has
invested many thousands of dollars to pre
pare for the work, and the trouble will
result in a long litigation, a great loss to
the bondsmen, and bo of no benefit to the
community.
An important meeting of the directors of
the Manatee Cattle Company was held at

ing gentlemen aamprising the hoard were
present: JudgWZiba King, Fort Ogden,

tary and Treasurer; Hon. John W. Can

grazing land in Floiida. It is understood
t hat the stock of Judge King, who is the
largest cattle owner in the State, has been
purchased as well as that of several other
large owners.
Pensacola Commercial: The manner in
which the liberality cf the Itsliau govern
ment in the matter of its subsidy of the
Italian marine is frequently abused often
liuds fitting illustration at i bis pert. The
bounty is only paid tor mileage sailed with
cargo, and as exportations to America
through the port of Pensacola are of rare
occurrence, nearly all vessels arriving are
in ballast only. The Italian vessels are
generally ballasted with a rough rook,
unfit for anything save for the stif
fenug of a ship, yet it is placed
upon the vessel’s manifest as cargo, and a
consular certificate obtained at the pon of
departure embodies the master’s affidavit
that the stuff is a consignment to order.
Upon this the eoUecti >n of the bounty is vi
feoled. Wneu it comesto paying duty on the
ballast, there is a protest, the master say
ing the stuff has no more value than so
much dirt (a fact), and, oil the strong li of
such a representation to the Treasury!) pari
meat by t he Collector of Customs, the Secre
tary as a rule allows a large rebate, jf he
does not actually instruct the Collector to re
turn any duties collected in this connection.
A peculiar pnase of the business is the
probability that the Italian government is
aware of the fraud thus Is ing constantly
practiced upon it—an inference drawn
from the reliable statement that the Italian
Minister at Washington, some time since,
issued a circular letter to the Italian Con
suls of America, instructing the latter to
wink at the practice. This method of se
curing the liounty is now quite common.
