June Jackson, a Negro Boy of Win der, Held on Serious Charge. Friday evening about (:“>•) o’clock a negro boy called at the back door of the bouse occupied by Mrs. -Julie Tiller,a widow woman living inside the city limits of Winder, on the Gwinnett side of town, lie asked Mrs. Tiller if her son was at home, saying the boy was wanted at the depot to help unload some trees. Being told the son was not at homo, the negro asked if there was any other man at the house who could go. Receiving a negative reply, he blusted out, “Well, <1 —n you, I’ll brain you if you scream,” and advanced toward the woman, j who shut the door and ran into the * house for a gun, screaming all the while. The negro ran around the house !to the street and fled toward the 'Seaboard depot. I Neighbors soon gathered and form ed a searching party. Mrs. Tiller and a neighbor were walking through j the crowd at the depot when June I Jackson, a negro boy about nine teen years of age, said, God knows they can’t ’ me of it ’cause 1 wuz down here.” It developed j that several parties had seen June 1 going in that direction at the time. (Then were 20 minutes for which the negro had no alibi, and Mrs. Tiller swore positively that he was dressed like the negro and she be lieved him to he the one. A coat which the negro’s step- (father identified as his own, which (June had Urn gearing for the past | few days, was found about fifty j yards from Mrs. Tiller's house. : Saturday afternoon the case was tried befor Judge George Robinson, ordinary-elect of Gwinnett county, | who bound Jackson over to the [superior court for assault. • June Jackson is well known in I Winder and this is not the first I time he has been in trouble, but the ! chances arc that this little escapade will hold him for some time to come.
