JUDGE AND STATES ATTORNEY
MAKE GOOD IMPRESSION
Arcadia. Nov. 22. Circuit Court
here this week has shown in a mark
ed degree the imprint of the per
sonality of the jurist. Judge Whitney
who is holding his first term of court
here. Court proceedure lias becu re
organized and there is no more pro
crastination countenanced.
Attorneys are discovering that
they must have a really legal excuse
for neglecting to be ready for trial
when their clients' cases are called,
and the witnesses summoned either
respond to the summons on the in
stant set or, lacking good and suffi
cient reason, appear involuntarily
and answer to the court. Not that
such action has been taken as yet,
but the intimation has been made in
a dignified manner by His Donor
and both the legal talent and the
laity are impressed with the court
procedure and show the increased re
spoct they feel. On every hand there
is heard the expression that "Judge
Whitney is goins to make a mighty
good judge.-'
Praise State'i Attorney.
State's Attorney Singletary, of
Bradentown, is adding to the new or
der of things. the weight of his ready
compliance with the wishes of Judge
Whitney, which are identical with
his own. He is prompt and one of
the most forceful prosecutors that
have held this office' and he is gain
ing many admirers among those
whose business calls them to the
court room this week.
The Polk county grand jury rec
ommended the establishment of a
criminal court of iccori1 c'vi tie em
ployment of a detee.iv to hunt out
blind tigers.

time the relations which existed be
C. F Perry, the fruit grower and
Mrs. Pantley, and these were con
firmed yesterday morning when

father and the two, arming them
selves, and learning in which direc

them into the woods, overtaking
t hem about a mile from Hie Pantley
home. Finding they were detected,
Perry sprang behind a nearby tree
and opened fire on Green, shooting
him in Hie side. As the latter fell

body, Perry dying before medical at
tention could be secured.

little interest. Her father was se
verely wounded in the gun batll.e
but it is thought he will recover.

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.
