The special term of court for the pur pose of trying the Nightrider cases and resubmitting to the Grand Jury all those cases in which indictments were returned at the special October, 1908, term, and judgment in wincii was reverseu uy uiu Supreme Court at its May term, con vened here Monday, with Judge Jos. E. Jones presiding. The new Grand Jury, composed of the following persons, was empaneled, sworn and charged by the court: J. B. Caudle, T. J. Latimer, D. A. Luten, J. S. Henderson, Polk McDonald, James Davis, R. Clark, R. C. Reynolds, N. W. Whipple, James Nelms, 0. P. Smith, F. A. Powell, and 0. A. Kennedy. A number of the Nightrider defend ants who are out on boiid were present in court. The Grand Jury began the hearing of witnesses as soon as em paneled. At the first day's session indictments were returned against Garrett John son, the alleged leader of the so-called Nightriders' band, and who was sen tenced to be hanged at the January term of the Circuit Court, and the case re versed by the Supreme Court, and Ar thur Cloar, another of the six men that were sentenced to hang. Gen. D. J. Caldwell announced that he was ;eady for trial Wednesday morn ing when court was opened. A lengthy argument ensued between R. A. Pierce, chief counsel for the defense, and At torney General Caldwell. Mr. Pierce argued for a trial of some of the men that had never been brought to trial instead of these two defendants, which the defense was not prepared for, but stated that they were prepared for the other men. Gen. Caldwell then said that he pro posed to try these two men at this term of court, and get indictments returned against all that he could, and nothing more. Mr. Pierce then asked for time in which to file a plea in abatement. RURAL LETTER CARRIERS Will Celebrate Thanksgiving Day at Humboldt, Tenn, The Gibson County Rural Letter Car rier's Association is making extensive preparations toward the entertainment of the rural carriers of West Tennessee on Thanksgiving Day. They are preparing an "old time" barbecue, which should be a strong drawing card, but apart from this they are going to have some good speeches on interesting subjects by up-to-date people. Miss Cole, of Dyer County, will read a paper; Col. J. W. Rosamon, who for a number of years headed the West Tennessee Farmers' Institute; Mr. E. R. Maxey, President Illinois R. L. C. A., who has a national reputation as a friend of the rural carrier, an advo cate of good roads, parcel post, etc., aud always found working for what he advocates. These and more, as their program is not entirely completed, but they are strictly going to have a good time, and they want every carrier in every county in West Tennessee to come and bring his wife or his sub, or both. They have sent out a circular letter of invitation to every postoffie in West Tennessee having rural service and if, by chance, any place failed to get one, they want it understood that all are in vited. The carriers of Gibson County are on this job, which means a good time for all and plenty to eat. Don't consider it mere advertising gush when Southworth says that he has the finest and most artistic line of fram ed pictures ever brought to Union City. He knows- it is that way. You will know it when you call to see them. 34tf Closing Out Sale of Live Stock.
