VOL. IX. Judge Landrum,special Judge, having an important murder case in the Lee Cos.. Circuit could not act in the capacity of Judge this week. Hon. B. F. Bell, of the local bar, acted this week as special Judge, in cases wherein Judge Carroll was disqualified, with great dignity and ability. He pre sided in the trial of the State vs Wade Hampton charged with the murder of Mary Larry. Jim Beard, a negro youth 18 or 19 years old committed the deed, claimed that Hampton advised and planned the killing, and was convicted upon his testimony. The Jury rendered a verdict of murder, as charged, but could not agree upon the degree of purnishment, which means a life sentence in the State peni tentiary unless the verdict is re versed by the Supreme Court, if appealed, and it is believed an appeal will be taken. The case was vigorously prosecuted, Hons. H. H. Brooks, Jr., district attor ney and A. M. Saunders, county attorney, assisted by Hon. W. W. Magruder. By appointment on the part of the Court, Hon. Jhomas J. Wood, represented the defendant. One and one half days were consumed in this trial. Jim Beard through his attor ney, Mr. O. F. Turner, effected arrangements to plead guilty of manslaughter and was sentenced to the penitentiary for the term of twenty years. If t-he peni tentiary officials don't keep a close watch on Jim he will not be confined very long and is a very dangerous character. The Court dispatched quite a number of important criminal cases, and we are impressed that from now on crime demminish in the county It seems that some people are hard to be impressed that there are laws for the government of people. We need more execu tion of the laws. Judge Carroll as judge, will have the bench more to himself at the next term as the docket has been pretty well cleaned of old cases. Cases that may be found at the next term of couit will be tried at that term, if all can be disposed of. There is no use in continuing cases that can be tried and Judge Carroll so views it and has served notice ot ! his intention. Hon. H. H. Brooks has demon strated his titness and ability as a prosecuting attorney and gives general satisfaction. He was very successful in convictions at this term of the court: Having finished all that could be done on the criminal docket at this term of the court departed for Macon, his home yesterday morning. Mr. Ames Saunders, the coun ty attorney, has been assidious and untiring in the discharge of his duties and we are of the opinion that the creation of office of County attorney, a y;ise act. Crime will not be so rampant as in the past if the same interest be taken as at this Court. There are plenty of crimes overlooked that will receive attention yet. Law and order must prevail for the protection of women and children and the lawabiding ele ment. All in all, this has been a most successful term of Circuit Court i which will adjourn either today ! Ijjr tomorrow after disposing of. iwi matters. I MISSISSIPPI, FRIDAY, MAY 27, 101!O. WEAK, WEARY WOMEN Learn the Cause of Daily Woes and End Them. When the back aches and throbs.

Boss Slalin Has Big Job. Everybody knows who Boss Slalin is. He is the foreman of construction on all the contracts recently started in the town. Anybody who thinks Boss Slalin has an easy job is mistaken. Even the President of the Unit ed States with all his depart ments does not do as much work or think half as hard as Slalin, in one day of his executive du ties. Mr. Slalin is an old timer and has superintended hundreds of big jobs in all parts of the country. Way back in the sev enties when St. Louis was on a building, boom he was one the job. He came South and cover ed big contracts in Mississippi until the yellow fever drove him back to the home of his child hood, Milwaukee. Then again he came to the dear old South land and has ever since been a familiar figure in building circles througout Mississippi and ad joining states. In recent years he has hovered around Stark viile and it was Boss Slalin who is remembered by the college boys as the “man behind” in the construction of the great build ings of A. & M. When Boss Slalin is on the job things move and you may rest assured it's no ch (> ap job either. No better idea can be conveyed of the .sub stantial building movements of Geiger than the fact that it takes a Slalin to engineer the con struction. —Geiger Times, (Ala.) The News can add nothing that would add to the apprecia tion of the people of the new town Geiger,the new site along a new line of railroad now being constructed and completed to G Mger in Alabama, about 16 or 17 miles east of Scooba, Miss,, fr ra Reform, Ala., and will be completed to York where it will connected with A. G, S. R. R., and will probably be extedded to Gn (port. Miss. Mr. Slalin. no do. bt, feels very proud and gra tified at the high compliment paid him. His work at the A. & M.C. stands as a living monu m nt in support ot the above de s rved tribute to his name. ■ ■■■■■—M —.i... fgm ■ - 1 - ■ NOT 3E OF FIRST MEETING OF CREDITORS.
