Ta Was "Softo His Ways !
Ono of thc most sensational legal
complications that has ever aroused
thc interest of a law-abiding neighbor
hood was tho outgrowth ol' a trial re
cently Judd before Judge B. NY.
Quirk, of tho Hickory Flat Circuit.
Tho circumstances, told with the no;
ccssary dryness of detail, aro as fol
lows :
j, One John Fetors, a sober und indus
ii ?un.- limn, jjtHcU' ie leoine innuo ono
night. This occurrence was so unu
sual that iii? wife, becoming; alarmed,
tirciscd tho neighborhood, ami men,
women and hil tl rou turned out in t:
general search. Tho next day John
I'el era' coat was /bund near the rivet
bank. Marks of a struggle were also
discovered. Immediately thero arose
a cry th ut I he niau hud been murdered;
aud, about this lime, thom carno along
a repu table citizen who declared that
ho had, several days before, heard Sim
Whitened Al Miller swear that they
would kill Peters. The two men were
arrested and ink eu before a justice of
thc peace. They avowed their inno
cence, nnd their lawyer declared thal
thoy could not bo held for murder
until it was proved that a murder hud
been committed. The proof was not
long winning, for a fisherman soon ar
rived with tho information that he had
found tho body of Peters. Tho body \
wan Iden lilied nnd thc preliminary
(rial proccoJed, resulting not only in
establishing tho fact that White and
Miller swore that they would kill
Peters, hut they were overheard td
declare that they would drown him.
They were held over and were indicted
hy the grand jury.
When the case canin up ho foro
Judge Quirk, of tho circuit court,
some of tho ablest lawyers in thc State
wore in attendance, for White and
Miller wore not friendless, anti more*
over, they wcro not willmot means.
After more than tv week of "slnr-1
inishing" a jury was impaneled, and
then the great trial was begun. The
majority of tho people, including the
press, o four-column folio sot in small
pica and printed in the back room of
P. li, Whitson's cross-roads store, be
lieved that a verdict of guilty would
ho rendered, avcLbets wero mndo with
persons who holT.vod that the prison
ers were guilty. Vuil who thought that
the jury might ho "culvored."
The trial bad not proceeded far
when it could ho clearly seen (hat tho
judge was convinced that White and
Miller wcro guilty. This jurist was:
something moro than a peculiar old
follow. Ho was n decided character,
and so sot wore his opinions when
once lormod that no iirguincnl and no
proof could chango them.
"Gentlemen of tho jury," said the
judge, when all tho testimony had
been heard, MI don't think that it is
necessary to go into nu argument con
cerning this case. Tho guilt of these
men is ao clear that it would bo a
criminal act to waste tho county's
money in prolonging this trial. Now,
prisoners, tho best thing you can do is
to confess your guilt and throw your"
.?elves upon tho mercy ol' thia court."
"Lave you any confession to make,
Mr. White?"
"No, your honor, except that I nth
.'Ilavo you any confession to make,
Mr. Miller?"
"None, except to say that I had
nothing to do with tho killing of our
friend Fetors."
"All right," said tho iudgo. "1 so?
that you do not desiro ?my more) ; hut
if you expect to cse?poplin?sh ment by
tua king tl prolonged ii jut, let ino toll
you that yon will mott with nothing

to the prosperity ol'my now-nuuto
frionds. I find thc farmers sorely
oppressed in some things in this
country. While thoy seem to
have good fertile lands-lands that
will produce most anything need
ful for man to satisfy tho appe
tite-corn, peas, potatoes, wheat,
rico, cane for manufacturing syr

word I would like to say to you is

you may attend Alliance meet

this present day could pay cash
for thoir labor a hand would work
with moro satisfaction ; he would
take moro interest in your welfare ;
lie would give you more labor for
tho amount promised and lie could
Iced his family at less expense,
and it would leave him something
lo fall back on should sickness
occur in Inn homo. So long as
you live lit thc present rate, so
long will you have to live. It
would bc botter to live ono or two
years hard and try during that
time to Pinko something to live
upon than to havo to work hard
all youl'(lays and then have noth
