DON’T FAIL TO REGISTER!
Unless Yoq Registered When Yon Paid
Yonr Tax You Will Have to In Order
to Vote in Primary.
A question has been raised by a,
number of the citizens of the coun
ty, as to whether a man will have
to register again if he did so when
he paid his tax Inst full, in order
to vote in the coming primary. In
answer to this, we say NoS A re-,
cent act of the legislature holds
that when a man registers it is
good for 12 months, So, unless
you registered last fall you will
have to register again it you ex
pect to vote in the primary.
The registration books for each
district are in the hands of the jus-
ticej of the peace and everybody
should take advantage of this op-
pot tunity and register.
The day of the primary for coun
ty officers will very probably be
called on the same day us that of

Many of our readers are already
familiar with the shooting of Dep
uty Sheriff John Bennett, of Bibb
county, by Mr. Richard Rice in
Macon late Saturday afternoon,
and who died at the cily hospital
in that city Monday morning at
Art account of the shooting' given
in the Macon papers is as follows:
'•There are conflicting statements
about the killing. Rice says that
it was purely accidental, but Ben
nett, s;n;ed to an officer at his
bedside that Rice shot him pur
posely, because lie had accused him
of stealing money.
“According to the best informa
tion tlat could be obtained, Rice,
Bennet and a man named DiiPriest
had been out driving. They drove
up to Hammett’s bar on Fourth
street arid went inr to get a drink
and while- standing at the bar
Bennett accused Rice ot taking
money front him. Rice became
indignant and told Bennett that if
he had a pistol he would shoot him.
oennett handed his pistol to Rice,
and said ‘You haven’t got the nerve
to shoot.' As soon os he said this
Rice fired the fatal shot, the ball
striking Bennett just below the
heait. Rice then handed the pistol
back to Bennett and walked out of
the saloon, cume down , town and
surrendered to an officer. Bennett
took the pistol put it in his pocket,
walked out of the barroom and at
the same time called for a buck.
He was taken heme but later was
removed to the city hospital. •
‘Rice belongs to one of the best
families in Bibb county and is a
son of the late James R. Rice and
lives with bra mother about three
miles from Macon.
Mr. Bennett’s death will be
mourned by all ot the county offi
cials and especially the members of
the sheriff’s office, for he was held
in the highest esteem by them, and
was regarded as one of the most
promising of the young officers. He
was full of energy and determina
tion to succeed, and bad won u
reputation for perseverance. intel
ligence and cool-headedness. His
good work in capturing the slayer
of Mrs. R. J. Roland won him u
reputation thut will long survive.
‘Mr. Bennett was buried at
Ebenezer church on the Coluriibui.
road Monday afternoon at 2 o’clock,
in the presence of a large crowd.”
Mr. Bennetf was a citizen of
Vienna a few years ago, and was a
brother to Mr. C. I. Bennett of this
city. He leaves a young wife and
baby to-mourn his death.
