AVarrant Clerk Harrison, of the Execu
tive department, was asked Wednesday
what effect the Governor’s absence would
have upon bills passed by the General As
sembly, the question being put in conne -
thin with the constitutional five day’s
time allowed him to sign bilb. Capt.
Harrison said his absence would not uffect
the matter at all, that if any bills were
passed during his absence, they could not
be delivered to the Governor until he re
turned, and he would then have the usual
time in which to consider them. He sup
posed that the bills would be retained by the
authorities of the General Assembly until
his return. There was no hitch, or delay or
danger at all in the absence of tue Governor
at this tune. Gov. Gordon is expected to
return home on Tuesday of next week.
Rachel May. a whits girl of fourteen sum

charged with laieeny. At a preliminary
trial she was oonvictsa upon evidence purely
circumstantial, and upon failure to give
bond for $l5O was taken to Baxley for im
prisonment in the county jai'. to await trial
m the Superior Court. Tlio people of Bax
ley had never heard of the girl Wore but
felt that it would be an outrage to allow ono
so young and fair to be incarcerated in their
midst, and especially upon grounds so un
substantial. The news, of her arrest and
presence in Baxley created considerable ex
citement, and in a very short time fifteen of
the most prominent citizens of Baxley vol
unteered to stand the Inind and set the vic
tim free. Several of the lawyers who were
professionally incapacitated' to serve as
bondsmen volunteered to defend her when
the trial occurred.
Monday morning a special train was
speeding from Macou*townrd Americus to
beat the 6a. m. train from Albany. It bore
some of the magnates of the road. About
two miles from Americus section master
Thomas Gresham lives, and about that hour
he had started his hands oil a pole car
toward Andersonville. He heard the train
as be entered the cut and jumping off the
car started ahead with a flag, telling his
hands to reverse anil go bock; as he
reached the curve in tho cut he saw the ap
proaching train and flagged it down. Tho
engineer blew his whistle and reversed tho
breaks, but as he rounded the curve, ho saw
the pole oar across the track, and the hands
trying to lift it off. It was impossible to
check up, and the engine struck the car
tearing it to pieces. Tne negroes got out of
the way. No oue was hurt and the special
reached Americus a few minutes ahead of
the regular morning train.

Adams was killed by eight bullets piercing
his body. One of bis sons was shot in the
head, and a daughter in the knee, but
neither of these is seriously wounded. The
others escaped unhurt. It is supposed from
the notion of the mob that the lives of tho
whole family were to have beou taken. The
origin of the trouble grew out of the diffi

Mallory, a son of Adam, a few
days ago, in which Mr. Smith, was depu
tized to arrest the negro on a warrant for
ussitult aud battery on his son. The negro
resisted arrest and was shot by Sniftb.
The affair was settled botweon the parties
themselves and no further difficulty was ap
prehended. but two of the negro’s brothers
from Quitman countv went over and created
more bud blood by their threats. On Mon
day night a gang of what was supposed to
lie the negro’s friends fired upon Smith’s
house but did no damage. Smith’s friends,
for no one else but his friends would have
taken part, must have found out that tho Mal

On Sunday evening of last week u daring

There have been some idle reports current
to the effect that some of the English resi-.

the Sentinel that these rumors are utterly
without foundation. The only man who
has hesitated to take tho oath was a minis

would be bound to fight. Upon being
assured to the contrary he took the oath
without further questioning.

It seems that on Tuesday afternoon after
Messrs. Hodnett, Jones and Birdsong lost
him under the vine* in the ditch the search
teas taken up by a party headed by Mr.
Frank Smith The party tracked him over
the country, through woods and fields until
late in the afternoon and then lost track of
him. Then Mrs. Smith saw him going over
a hill and reported it to tho party, who took
a fresh start and went in pursuit. When
they first saw him he wus going through
Mr. John Herring’s field and they called on
Mr. Herring to stop him. The party were
so far off that Mr. Herring did not quite un
derstand what they said, and, supposing it
was a bear he was called upon to stop, he
dropped his plow handles and gathered a
large rock. It was then that he saw a negro
breaking for a skirt of woods near by,
When tne party came up a search was made
in the woods, but the fugitive could not be
About an hour before the sun went down
the searching jiarty stopped ut Mr. Her
ring’s house. Mr. Herring and his family
came up at the same time, the family hav
ing gone to the Held in the early part of the
evening. On reaching the house they found
that the door had been burst open, and on
entering everything was tofssy-turvy. Tho
trunks had been opened and the contents
scattered about the floor, and oven the fur
niture had Itoen broken. It then flashed
upon them that the house had been visited
by. the man they were after. Although the
party were worried out with the long search
they now became active and a search
was made for the negro. Other neigh
bors were called in and soon quite a
party of men had gathered about the house.
A look into the house revealed no trace of
tho negro except that he had been there
and demolished everything. Then a thought
struck one of the party that possibly he
might be in the loft. A ladder was pro
cured and placed against the galdo end Of
tho house, and one of the bravest of the
party, Mr. Frank Smith, ascended. A
plank was ripped off, and the negro was
seen lying in the loft. He told the intruder
that if he came in he would kill him. Mr.
Smith went down the ladder, and in a
short time the cold barrel of a shotgun was
thrust through the hole, and
a voice asked the negro to surren
der. He swore he wouldn’t, and re
in >ated his threat to kill the man who came
in. There was a loud report and the negro,
with a howl of pain, sprang to the opening
and declared that he would whip the entire
party. Mr. William Simmons held a gun
in about the position of “carry arms,” and
in a twinkling the negro had shot out a
heavy plank from the loft through the
opening. It struck the stock of tne gun
held by Mr. Simmons with such force as to
break the stock short off. If the gun had
had not broken the force of the plonk it
would no doubt have killed Mr. Simmons.
This decided tho party and they determined
to take him dead or alive. The
negro, in the meantime, had left
the loft and deicended into the
house. The crowd rushed in upon him and
he was soon overpowered, though he fought
manfully. He gave up. and said he would
go with them without further trouble. He
was found to have been shot in the hip, and
an effort was made to wash off and dress
the wound. By this time it was dark, and
it was necessary to have a lamp. The
fugitive knocked the lamp out of the
hand of the negro who held it, and
would have given the meu more trouble
but for their determined effort to hold
him. His bauds were tied after a desjierate
struggle, aud a trace chain placed around
his neck and tied. A stake was then driven
securely in the ground, and the negro, find
ing that he was firmly bound, gave no more
trouble. He was guarded all night, and
yesterday morning he was placed in a
wagon aiid brought to Macon. The follow
ing constituted the party; John Herring,
Frank Smith, Madison Latson, William
Simmons and John Bull.
THE DUKE OF MARLBOROUGH.
Reticent as to His Private Affairs, But
Talks Freely on Ireland.
From the New York Herald.
Boston, Bept, 13. —His Grace the Duke of
Marlborough, arrived in Boston last night
from Newport and drove directly to the
Brunswick Hotel, where he will remain
during his stay here,
W hen a reporter callod on him he was re
ceived graciously, but the Duke declined to
talk about his reception at Newport or his
future actions on the ground that it was
nobody’s business what tho Duke of Marl
borough did in private life.
lie talked fully and freely about Ireland
and the Irish question, however, and in
reply to questions said;
THE GOVERNMENT’S GREAT DIFFICULTY.
“The great difficulty of the government
at tho present time consists in the fact that
they have to administer a coercion act
which in the very nature of things—in tho
the very nature of countries—must always
be an unpopular remedy. Whether the
coercion act was alisolutely necessary is, in
my mind, a very grave question. 1 think
myself tliat when Lord Salisbury took office
there were two courses open to him. One
was to deal with the Irish question on the
lines of the old tory policy, which was the
jxilicy of coercion, and tne other was to
leave the Irish question und to deal with the
equally, if not much more, important sub
ject of domestic reforms in England.
THE LIBERALS’ LEGACY.
“The Lilieral party left a long programme
of reforms which had long been wished for
by the people of England, and in that pro
gramme none were more important than
the subjects of county reform, incidents of
local taxution, London municipal reform
and all those cockney questions which are
in a chaotic stato of transition in England.
“My own opinion is that if Lord Salis
bury had, in conjunction with the support
ers outside his party in Parliament, elabo
rated a scheme of English reform, he might
have carried universally needed and iin 1 sir
tan t measures which would have placed tho
party before the country’ in a totally differ
ent light to that which it occupies at the
present time. Lord Salisbury decided,
tiowever, to attack the Irish question in the
first instance. He was, no doubt, prompted
to this course by the notorious acts of law
lessness which have always been of persis
tent occurrence in Ireland in the relations
of landlords to tenants, and he was no doubt
pressed to adopt this course by the Irish
landlord element, who have always been
howling for help and protection from the
torj’ Prune Minister.
“I think myself that he allowed himself
to bo drawn into a vicious circle, and then
the more prudent course would lutvo been to
allow the state of things which existed in
Ireland ut the time of his accession to ma
ture before he attempted any legislation
with regard to the land or the strengthen
ing or the criminal law.
“I was myself in Ireland a year ago this
autumn, und as far as I could judge from
travel through the wilt Is of Connemara and
other portions of the west,thn disturbance of
the peace and the difference* Ist wren land
lords and tenants were of a local and only <*■
casional character. A dispiritimi seemed to
be abroad, Ixith among the tenants and the
landlords, to come to some adjustment of
tho difficulties which have tieen cuused in
the matter of statutory right by the great
fall of prices.
WIIAT SHOULD HAVE KEEN DONE.
"I believe myself that though disorder
cotihl not have been wholly avoided, and
acta of harshness on the part of iaudloid*
would, In Individual instance* have eauswl '
difficulty—l believe. I say, (that the am
eminent might well have left the whole !
question of Ireland to sharp for a while and
have turned thatr attention to a universal
and couatruoMv* programme of English re- i
PS ‘The position which I/ird Salisbury's
government now occupies is one of con
siderable difficulty. He lias embarked upon
a course which ostensibly is intended to
maintain a Parliamentary union in the two
countries. In order to accomplish this la?
has been compelled to pass a coercion act,
which cannot lie jiopular even among his
THE LAND BILL.
“In order to mitigate the unpopularity
which this act has undoubtedly' thrown
upon his government, be has forced through
Parliament a laud measure which in its con
ception is infinitely more radical and more
completely subversive of the right of prop
erty, as a lawyer would look at it, than Mr.
Gladstone’s land act of 1882. He has de
prived the Irish landlord, by act of Parlia
ment, of a portion of that statutory right
which was decreed as an unalienable pos
session to tho Irish landlord for a period of
fifty year-s by Mr. Gladstone’s act of 1882,
anil He has not offered one penny of corn
ponsation for this measure of Parliamentary
spoliation. We must leave it to lawyers
and jurists to judge of his wisdom of the
measure, but that it will in any way in Ire
land mitigate the unpopularity of his coer
cion act it would be ridiculous to suppose.
“With regard to the successful working
of the coercion act which lifts been passed
and of the policy of suppressing the
Nntional League, it' is perfectly impossible
to say how Far Lord Salisbury’s govern
ment ' may be successful in repressing the
popular ferment. The forces allied against
the government are undoubtedly strong.
Not only the Irish element in Parliament
and the popular feeling in Ireland itself are
very strong forces to contend against, hut
the hand and glove support which the Irish
partv are now receiving from Mr. Gladstone
and his supporters wiil tend very largely to
weaken the hand of any government which
endeavors to administer the law in the face
of the passions of the Irish people.
A HARD PROBLEM.
“The problem lias become an extremely
difficult one. The majority in Parliament
is, to a certain extent, homogeneous. What
the feeling of the eleetors-at-lnrge in Eng
land and Scotland with regard to the pres
ent government is it is absolutely impossible
Speaking of the American sympathies
with the home rule cause, his grace con
“The Americans suffor in more than one
respect from a misapprehension of the
analogy between tho constitutions of the
two nations. America, with its great ag
gregation of States, is something like the
vast continent of Europe with all its dif
ferent nations. New York and California,
for instance, are widely separated, and their
respective needs differ very much. But tho
relations between England and Ireland
must be as close as those between Kent and
ONE COMMON POLICY NEEDED.
“It is impossible to conceive of two sepa
rate financial and commercial policies in
England and Ireland which would not be
disastrous and conflicting to both, particu
larly to Ireland In many other ways the
needs of Ireland and England are so similar
that while home rule in some form is a ne
cessity, which cannot be ignored, yet there
cannot safely be two separate and widely
divergent policies for Great Britain and
A Joke on a Lawyer.
From the Marietta ( Ga .) Journal.
Lawyers are always telling jokes on each
other. In a crowd the other day we heard
a good one on oue of our ablest and most
successful attorneys. It was stated that at
a Justice Court the aforesaid lawyer had
made a long, loud aud energetic speech.
The attorney in reply deliberately started
off by’saying- “May it please the court,
my brother who has' just preceded me in
his noisy and ranting speech, reminds me of
a story 1 heard in which a fanner had lost
a good many chickens nightly by some
thief. He locked his chicken house,
chinked up the cracks, and still the chick
ens would disappear. Determined to catch
the thief he hung a large bell ovor the
chicken house to which he attached a rope
and then circled the chicken house with it,
so that any one coming in contact with the
rope would l ing the bell. Seated in his
house at night with a double barrel shotgun
across his lap, he didn’t have long to wait
before the bell tapped. The farmer has
tened to shoot the intruder, but he was in
visible. He returned to the house and again
waited when the boll rang out the second
time, clear and strong. The farmer rushed
out and discovered that a ’possum had
climbed the rope. He waited a minute to
see the result, when the ’possum looked up
at the bell and exclaimed; “Well, if you
haven’t got the biggest mouth, the longest
tongue and the least brains of anything I
ever saw in my life.”
