His pal, who was caught in the car, gave his name as Pete Russell, (which is probably an alias) and is about 22 years of age. Since Thursday two more of the gang have been trailed down and ar rested in Arkansas by Wheeler and Bledsoe. The men are members of a bad gang, which has done much damage, and -mare arrests are expected in this state. Russell has been in jail here several days.

He seems to be im proving nicely and will recover. THE CAMP. The young men of Augusta are an energetic set, and especially when there is an opportunity of them ad ding something to the pleasure of their friends or enjoying themselves. When it is so warm that indoor amusements cease to be a pleasure, they resort to picnics, fish frys and other outings. Monday and Tuesday of this week they entertained with a camp hunt at Taylor’s Bay, which was reported by those present to have been productive of more real pleasure than anything of the season.

The jury in the case of Wallace Grant, charged with the murder of Essex Powers, Friday evening re turned a verdict of guilty. Grant was ably defended by Attor neys J. W. Stay ton and Love Grant, who attempted to prove their client insane at the time of the commission of the deed, but the jury adjudged otherwise. The crime for which Grant was con victed was committed last October, the following account of which ap peared in the Independent of Thurs day, October 24th,1901: “Essex Powers, a negro sat at the supper table, at his home, the fourth door south of the church on Vine street. His chair was near the win dow, his left side face close against the pane, across which there hung a light piece of sheeting, which served the purpose of a curtain. The shot came from without and Powers [fell back as nearly the whole discharge of the gun imbeded itself in the left jaw, tearing the tongue and lower teeth out and ranging upwards. The victim of the shot was pm awful sight as blood streamed from the whole face. Doctors L. E. and F. D. Willis -- — n i n n /I n •*-» /1 /I 1 /I oil VY vap uv uuco ouujinuuvu vt they could for the injured man, whose condition Thursday morning gave them some hope, but the chances are all against his life. The man upon the outside, who must have stood within two feet of the window, when he fired this shot of grapnel, composed of slugs and large and fine shot, is thought to have been Grant Wallace, a negro who has recently been in the employ of the Southern Cotton Oil Mill. Wallace and powers boarded at the house of Mollie Burton and on the previous evening, when Wallace had beaten the woman and threatened to use a razor, Powers had interferred in her behalf. Revenge and jealousy were the motives imputed to Wallace in the commission of this crime.” Huffman’s cream bread takes the lead. Mr. D. S. Blair and his sons operate the Arkansas Broom Factory on their place in Washington township, and have made and sold something near 5000 brooms in the last twelve months.

Charley McMillan, along with some other small boys, was bathing in the river a mile above town, near Gain or’s Ferry, Saturday, when he found a large mussel shell. Opening it in search of a pearl, he found a nickel. The coin bore the date of 1887 and the letter V, with which the earlier coins of that denomination were marked.
