MURPHY WILL QUIT CRIMINAL CASES; — And Start to Robbing the Trusts and Railroads, Ac cording to Reports. I Little Rock, Sept. 9—Col. Geo. W. Murphy, dean of criminal lawyers of the Southwest, and the attorney most sought after for the defense of criminal cases in this section, has announced he will not accept another criminal case. “When I have completed those I now have on my list,” said Col. Murphy this morning. “I will be through with criminal law and then start in to rob the railroad companies and the trusts.” Col. Murphy has been the cen tral figure in all the big criminal trials in Arkansas and adjoining states for many years, and has defended all the legislators tried here upon boodling charges, and has been retained to defend all those yet to be tried. None of his clients were ever given long sentences, though most of his cases have been those in which a murder was committed. Plumbing, Steam Fitting, Gas Fitting. Reasonable Charges on Work.
