Our history is wonderful, our

We would like every member

Clarksville. Dec. 16 —After an
all-night session the jury in the
case of the state against Orville
R. Daniels for the killing A Dr.
J. W. Mitchell December 11,1906,
returned as its verdict at 8:5l>
this morning that Daniel was
guilty of voluntary manslaughter
and his sentence was fixed at two
years in the state penitentary.
The defense then moved for a
new trial, which was overrulled.
but an application for an appeal
to the Supreme Court was grant
'd and Daniels was released on
$2,000 bond with 60 days’ time i;:
.vhich to perfect his appeal.
Whether an appeal will bi
taken is unknown; Capt. A S.
vlcKennon, on of the attorney.'
for the defense, stated that ii
Shortly after the verdict wat
rendered, friends of Daniels be
^an to circulate a petition t<
Governor Donaghey for Daniels’
Pardon, While the case has
attracted much attention,
through the fact that fcoth tht
defendant and the deceased wen
well known throughout tin
state, and the courtroom has
been crowded to its limit since
the trial began Monday, the cast
has been devoid of sensational
ism, which, it was thought,
would characterize it. The Ga
zette erred in a detailed concern
ing the testimony of Dr. E. W.
Smith of Little Rock and of Mrs.
Daniel’s sister. Their testimony
was that Daniels told them the
story of the killing at different
times and not, as was reported,
at the same time. The state
ment that the testimony of both
was ruled out is erroneous.
Our hearts go out in gratitude
to you all who have helped us in
so many ways during my sick
ness since July. Our prayer and
faith is that He who rewards the >
least ministry to one of his little j
ones will abundantly bless you;
