JACKSONVILLE'S MURDER RECORD A LARGE ONE In sum in i n g up the recent murders that have been committed in Jack sonville during I he past six months, The Metropolis has the following to Bay: "Duval county's record for mur ders shows no signs of abating, the murder of W. O. Futih last Satur day night adding another violent death to the long list which stands out so prominently to the general discredit of the abilities of the authorities. The list of murders oc curring in Duval county 'luring the past six months is as follows: S. II. Owens, murdered near Du val, June 17th. W. K. Berry, murdered near Riv erside, August I Nth. Cicero Thompson, murdered near Ortega, Sept. Kith. Chit Wah. murdered in Riverside, Sept. Mb. H. II. Hjane, murdered in River side. Oct. 2 1st. W. O. Flitch, murdered in western par! of city, Nov. 1Mb. The above list is far from com plete as there have been many mur ders of negroes, which have passed from the minds of the community, with little more than casual men tion. But the most important phase ot Ibis long list of crimes is the fact that in not one instance has an ar rest of the perpetrator been made. The crimes remain today as myster ious a-i they wen- immediately after the hand of i he murderer had taken the life of the unfortunate victim. Thtre can be no beating around the bush in this ipi.-slion. Duval county is taxed to pay ollicers to pro tect life and to ferret out crime. Jacksonville lias its force of detec-tiV'-s and policemen to protect life. land to capture criminals. The pub ' lie is waiting to hoar from these of J !i-or-. Their answer is necessary to .satisfy the tax payers that their j llloi:ey is wisely expended for SUch . protect ion. This community is becoming aroused, and is demanding that some thing be done to capture these des perate criminals. Such conditions as have prevailed here are more suitable to the islands of the Pacific, where every man's strength is a measure of his law. I i i L'aVr I r'.!i if,'
