It is upfojrtunate that the raineame

good crowd adjourned to the Chapel
with the boys.
On account of the threatening weather,
many people were prevented from en
joying a rare treat last night at the
Chapel of the University.
^ The occasion was that of the cham
pion debate between the two literary
societies. Both societies had been for
tunate in obtaining able representa
tives, and these gentlemen have spent
much time and thought in the prepara
tion of their speeches.
The debaters were, for the Demosthe-
nians, Messrs. T. Hem Crawford, S. J.
Tribble and J. It. Cooper: for the Phi
Kappa, Messrs. D. Gillis, E. W. Wat
kins and Donald Harper,
The question chosen for debate was,
“Resolved, That the present internal
Revenue System he abolished,” with
the Demostheniau for the alfimative and
the. Phi Kappa for the negative.
What the audience lacked in quanti
ty it made it up in quality, for all were
earnest and attentive listeners, and
Worm’s Band added inspiring strains
to help raise the boys’ enthusiasm.
After a short and appropriate prayer
by Chancellor Boggs, Mr. W. E.
Thomas, secretary of the debate arose
and made an appropriate little intro
The debate was then led oft'by an
excellent speech by Mr. Crawford,
after wliieh a Demostheniau and a Phi
Kappa alternately spoke, each
with force and power.
Six speeches on one subject, and that
subject the Internal Revenue Is some
what calculated to try the nerve of the
strongest, but the orators of the occa
sion breathed so much of tlicir own fire
nud enthusiasm into their theme that it
was impossible for the audience to grow
Hen. P. W. Meldrim, of Savan
nah who had been chosen judge
arose at the close of the debate and
made a few brief remarks which were
some what of a surprise to all. It was
a long way out of the ordinary run of
speeches on such an occasion. Ho said
that it was a much easier thing to say
nice things than to say true things, but

contest inexcusable unless he does tell
He theu said that the champion de

read a little lecture to the men on the
subject of debating, reminding them
that the truly effective speaker does
not go out of his way in search of sun
shine and pretty language. “Be terse,
to the point. Tf you have anything to
say, say it.” lie also referred to the
pronunciation of-some of the speakers,

The meeting was taken up in the
reading of various reports, many of
which are very voluminous. Among
them there are two which will be of
special interest to the public. One is
the report of Chancellor Boggs to the
Board of Trustees, the other is the re
port of Vice Chancellor Charbonnier to
Both of these papers are able docu
ments, and both recommend many
needed changes in the present working
of the University.
The first report of the new Chancellor
is characteristic of the man. It gives
evidence of much thought on the sub
ject, shows wide knowledge of Univer
sities and colleges in general, and be
tokens a progressiveness which will be
of great value to the University.
The report begins with a very high
compliment to Viee-Chaneellor Char-
honnier for the excellent manner in
which he has mauaged the affairs of the

8. It was at the noon hour, while she
was on her way home from theTremont

tectives, constables and private citizens
engaged in the search, tracing luumer-
ous clues all over the city and State,
but without avail. At 10 o’clock last
night Maggie’s murdered and dismem
bered body was found by accident in the
eellar of a house only seven doors from
her home. Before daylight this morn-

and concise statement of the present
conditions of the branch colleges, refers
to the negleet of military training in
two of them, and the neglect of classi
cal training in nearly all of them.
In connection with the branch col
leges Dr. Boggs urges that if the money
can possibly be obtained branch colleges
be established in each congressional
district, and recommends that Dr.
Jones he appointed to deliver lectures
in all these colleges. He speaks in the
highest terms both of Dr. Jones ^iul Dr.

between the close of finals and com
mencement is injurious and recom
mends that it he done away with. He
desires that every possible mmayean s

He pleads for the establishment of
the following new chairs: Constitution

chair of Logie and Elocution, a chair
of General History, a chair of Human
Physiology and Hygiene, and a chair of
Sacred Literature and Evidences of
Christianity. In addition to these he
wants assistants in the departments of

school for young boys who are going to

Col. Charbonnier’s report was a very
long one, and very systematically
drawn. It was necessarily more a record
of the past than a recommendation for
the future, but there were in it some
suggestions of vital importance. Col
Charbonnier thinks that there are too
many degrees in eollege. For the
academic department he proposes two
A. B. and B. S., one State eollege de
gree B. A. or Bachelor of Agriculture
As professional degrees he recommend
three, B. E., C., E. C. and M. E. He
then suggests two post graduate ile-
degrees, M. A. and M. S.
lie also recommends that the number
of Senior speakers be reduced to four,
two orators and two essayists.
The report closes with some statistics
concerning the Brown fund, which
shows the great good which is being
done by this fund.

Storm In Madison Countv.
There was a very heavy storm in the
Fork last Sunday in which several out
houses were blown d<Swn and also a
great number of trees. The hail was
very large and in the lower part of the
district the crops are nearly destroyed.
Underneath are two circular
cellars, oue for each family. Neither of
them rises above the level of the ground
and there is a clear place about each,
extending to the foundation walls. A
wall divides this part of the premises,
so that the front and rear cellars are ac
cessible only by the respective tenants.
The building is owned by Henry Leuth,
his wife and his son Otto, a young man
of seventeen. The rear part is occupied
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Sheovell. Both of
the families have been of unexceptiona
At the time of Maggie’s disappear
ance and for two weeks later Mrs. Leuth
was in the hospital and her husband out
of the city. The sole occupant of their
part of the dwelling was young Otto,
who slept there nights and took his
meals at las brothers, a few* blocks away
He had no occupation. Two or three
days before the return of Mr. and Mrs.
Leuth, the Shevells complained to Otto
of a bad smell obout the house. He ex
plained that rats had probably died in
the cellar and that a mattress upstairs
was full of worms, and promised to at
tend to them. He carried a mattress and
feather-bed into a shed, and for Some
days the smell was less noticable. \
Alter the return of Mr. and Mrs.
Leuth they noticed it also, and the
neighbors began to complain. Sunday
night the smell became intolerable, and
the Shevells joined Mrs. Leuth in insist
ing upon a thorough and immediate in
vestigation of the premises. Mr. Leuth
took a lamp and commenced an explora
tion of the eellar, and under a part of
the house, beneath the fioor and about
midway between the well like vaults,
lie discovered the naked body of a child
partially coveree with rags. The head
and one arm were severed from the trunk
Almost paralyzed with fright,J Leuth
hurriedly imparted the news of his dis
covery to his wife and rushed over to
the police station to give the alarm. De
tective Dougless, Patrolman Stein and
The world correspondent accompanied
Mr. Leutli back to the house. A few
minutes later Coroner Walz arrived and
the body was removed to the grass-plot
adjoining the house.
The body was horribly mutilated and
decomposed, but every oue present was
confident that it was Maggie Thomp
son’s body. The skull was found to
have been broken in at the forehead in
three places. Oue wound wa^ over the
right eye, one on the left frontal bone
close by tire hair and one in the left
temple. The jaw was also broken and
the left arm had been torn off at the
elbow j but the trunk was too badly de
composed to give any further clue to
the nature of the assault. All the
clothing was off aud had been piled
upon the body.
Meantime Maggie’s father had been
called out of bed to make the identifica
tion sure. He was simply told that a
body had been found, but that proba
bly it was not Maggie’s. Without
shoes or coat he rushed to the spot. One
look at the dress and liat was enough to
satisfy him, and the mingled grief and
fury of the burly man were terrible to
witness. lie was not allowed to look at
the face, beaten out of all semblance to
humanity, and was taken to his home
by main force. There another terri
ble scene was enacted when Mrs.
Thompson learned that the worst she
had ever dreamed in regard to her
daughter was more than realized.
The body was then removed to the
Morgue, and a further examination of
the premises made. A box of chloride
of lime was found near where the body
laid and a boy’s jacket, partly eaten by
the chemical. The police arrested the
five occupants of the building and
lodged them in the Central Station
Mr. and Mrs. Leuth immediately estab
lished a complete alibi, and were re-
lca*d, and a rigid cross examination of
all the parties was at once instituted
Otto seemed the most indifferent of tie
lot. He affected to treat the whole
matter as a good joke. He answered
every question promptly and declared
that he had never seen Maggie in his
life, and did not know how her body
came to be in the cellar.
The boy admitted being in the house
about the hour she disappeared and
that he placed the chloride, of lime
under the house. He put it where it
was found, because, he said, that was
where the worst smell was. But ander
steady and skillful cross-examination he
became uneasy and wavering in his re
plies, aud when confronted with the
bloody feather bed, brought, from the
shed, his bravado departed and
he broke down completely. Little
by little the truth was wrung
from him. and finally, unable to stand
strain, he expressed a willingness to
make a clean breast of the whole af
Otto said that li4 had met Maggie
Thompson near his own door, and when
she asked him for a button for her
string, he promised to .give her one if
she would go with him into the house.
The unthinking child followed the
young brute upstairs and there he at
tempted to assault her. Failing, he
picked up a heavy hammer and struck
the child down. Death gavehim a hor
rid privilege. Then he covered up
the body and left the house. For a
week he did not sleep in the house, and
at the end of that time carried the body
to the cellar.
The hammer with which the crime
was committed, young Leuth said, was
upstairs iu the house, and Detectives
Lawrenee and Douglass returned to the
scene of the tragedy and found it hold
ing up a window-sash in the bedroom.
The spread upon the *bed was stained
with blood, and the sheets were black
and filthy, as if they had been rolled in
dust. Otto’s confession threw his moth
er into hysterics, and she was taken
home prostrated and almost insane.
The Shevells were then released.
Young Leutli is about 5 feet 7 inches
tall, very slender and will hardly tip
the scales at 120.
His facial characteristics show ncitb
er vieiousuess nor mischievousness
llis upper lip is thin and is lapped
slightly by a somewhat thick underlip.
His nose is large and straight, while
his eyes are brown and small, with no
indication of cunning. Since his con
fession he has been moaning and crying
and begging for means of self-destruc
tion. He secins to realize for the fiist
time the enormity of his crime. Dur
ing the past month he frequently ap
proached Mrs. Thompson and with
seeming indifference asked if Maggie
had been found.
Aside from this affair the hoy has
never developed any depraved instincts.
IIs lias an undoubted talent for music
and plays well on the violin, but has

A CONVICT’S FATE.
A NEGRO THEIF SHOT AND DIES*
An Oglethorpe Bailiff Fires upon an Es
caping Prisoner, Who Afterwards
Dies from Kidney Disease.
Several weeks ago a convict who had
served oat a sentence in Col. Smith’s
chain gang, stole a cow from Mr. Bob
1’atterson, of Madison county, and then
sold the animal to Mr. John H. Smith,
an Athens butcher. 31 r. Pattersou
traced the cow, and Mr. Smith settled
with him. A warrant was taken out
against the thief and placed in the hands
of one of the best aud most careful bai
liffs in Oglethorpe county for service.
The thief was found near Beaverdaiu
church, and when the officer attempted
to make the arrest he met with a deter
mined resistance, and in self defense he
fired upon the negro with a pistol, the
ball taking effeet in his body. * After
this wound was inflicted the negro
managed to escape iu the darkness ami
was carried off aud concealed by some
of his black friends. About two week*
after the shooting the wounded negro
died, aud it was reported that it was
from the pistol shot inflicted by the
bailiff*. An investigation, however,
found this to he false, as his death was
caused from kidney disease.
The I bailiff is said to be .entirely justi
fiable in his conduct as the shooting wa-
done in self defense and in the dis
charge of his duty as an officer.
The matter created a little breeze of
excitement., and all manner of reports
have been prevalent in the city the past
few days: hem e The Banner gives u.e
