Col. Albert R. Lamar, late editor

a distinctive character, Col. Lamar

men famous the world

White Caps in Mitchell.
We had hoped that White Capism
would be confined to some ofthesiatei-
where it originated, but the trouble
has appeared in our own state, and in
an adjoining county Lawlessness is
never excusable. We are glad to see
that Governor Gordon is taking hold
ol this imported evil in a very vigorous
style. A dispatch to the Morning
News from Atlanta yeslerday says :
The citizens of Mitchell county have
become both alarmed and indignant
at the lawlessness prevailing around
Pelham, and have appealed to tilt
governor for aid in suppressing it. The
outrages committed by disguised men
in the night time reported to the exec
utive were the burning of theginhouse
of Glouser Brothers in Pelhant, break
ing into the house ol Jane Nix and
whipping her and three other v:..ite
women, the whipping of Henry Butler
and his son, and the severe beating
given a number of negroes. The gov
ernnr to-day announced Ins intention
ol breaking up this lawlessness if it
exhausted every power and resource
of the state. He directed the secreta
ry of state to issue a proclamation
offering a reward of $250 for the ap
prehension of the guilty parties engag
ed in the incendiarism, and $100 each
for the parties who were connected
with the whipping outrages. The or
dinary of Mitchell has been instructed
to post this proclamation throughout
Farming will Pay.
The Augusta Chronicle thus sunt
marize.s a few bristling points on the
subject of farming:
First. That planting, when com
ducted with intelligence, and follow
ed as a business, will pay, and pay
Second. That the supplies of the
farmer, so far as possible, should he
made at home.
Third. That farming properly
couducted not only secures a living,
but can he made to furnish a generous
Fourth. That farming like every
thing else, requires dost, personal at
tention, and good financiering. That
books should be kept and accounts
itemized on the farm as accurately as
in the store, and that there is not only
subsistence, but wealth, in farming in
Georgia, if men will he content to dig
The Cotton Plant.
What a royal plant it is! The
world waits in attendance on its
growth. The shower that falls whis
pering on its leaves is heard around
tho eorth. The sun that shines on it is
tempered by the prayers of all the
people. The frost that chills it and
the dew that descends from the stars
is noted, and the trespass of a little
worm on its green leaf is more to
England than the advance of the
Russian army on her Asian outnosts.
It is gold from the instant it puts
forth its tiny shoot. Its fibre is cur
rent in every bank, and when loosing
its fleeces to the sun, it floats a sunny
banner that glorifies the field of the
humble farm ; that man is marshal
under a flag that will compel alle-
giauce of the world, and wring a sub
sidy lTom every nation on earth. It is

In 4 he Arrington-Lane Murder Case.

“Mr. Foreman, have von, 0
you not, reached a verdict?”
“We have not,” said Byrd.
“Are you likely to agree?”
"We are not—no prospect.’
“Your duties,” continued Judge
Hansell,“have been long and arduous.
I have felt it to be my duty to retain
you up to the present time. All par
ties are satified that you have consci
entiously discharged your duties' with

on your par has reached my ears. I
thank you for having honesth endeav

Judge Hansell then read, in open
court, an order declaring a .mistrial.
The jury was then discharged from
the further consideration of the case,
and from attendance in court for the
remainder efihe term. Foreman Byrd
then handed in a card containing

the trial. In a few moments thereaf
ter court adjourned for the term.
HOW THE JURY STOOD.
From beginning to end the trial last
ed ten days. The jury were in the
jury room seventy hours. During that
time they did not ask the court to
charge them on any point. But two
ballots were taken during the oyhole of
their consideration ol the cash. The
first was quickly after going to the jury
room. Each man wrote his ballot,
and upon examination of all the votes,
nine were for acquittal and three were
for conviction. H. D Byrd put tn
one of those votes. B. C. Herring an
other and J C. Humphreys the*- third.
The next ballot was taken this morn
ing at 8 o'clock. It stood eleven for
acquittal and one for conviction. H.
D. Byrd was the twelfth man. Her
ring and Humphreys came over to the
side of the defendant within two hours
after the first ballot was taken, and a
verdict might have been rendered then
bad it not b.ten for the tenacity ol Ju.

could not agree was that of "cooling
time,” so Mr. Byrd, the foreman of
he jury, staled to your correspondent.
