PROMPT JUSTICE METED
Hannaway Gets 20 Years—The Law
the Land Prevails in Dooly.
In fchecaseof St .te against John
Hannawa\ tor a*sault with
to rape, the law has taken its
course and John has received the
limit of the law in such cases,
which is 20 years of hard labor in
the State penitentiary. The crime
of this fiend, ot assault and at
tempted rape upon the person of
an innocent, lovely white school
girl within four miles of Dooly s
capitol, is familiar to our readers,
The people were justly incensed
and strong talk of a lynching pre
vailed for a time, but cool heads
and a call of an extraordinary
session of the Superior Court by
Judge Littlejohn prevented this
double crime and as a result
within one week after the crime
was committed and within three
hours after court bad convened,
justice had been meted out to the
criminal and an example fur
nished worthy of emulation by
any other county, and a practical
demonstration given of the fact
that the blackest crime is amply
provided for by the laws of Geor
gia. Judge Littlejohn short,
pointed gave charge a the
concise and to
grand juty and a charge that was
eagerly listened to and approved
by all in attendance upon the
court, the court room being judge well
filled with spectators. The
said that he had no apology to
make nor was it his object in calling to ap- the
pease sentimentality although he had
extra session, and the victim,
great sympathy and friends, for he only
ercised that right of discretion
allowed him by law of adjourning of
one court for the purpose con
vening in extraordinary session
another, when in his judgment the
ends of justice could be better met
by so doing and the crime com
mitted warranted. The grand
jurors went to their room, prompt
ly returned a bill for ‘ ‘assault with
mtent to rape” against John Han
naway, who immediately plead
guilty and received the above
maximum punishment. Judge

Would not Sufler no Again for Fifty Times
I awoke last night with severe
pains in my stomach. I never felt
so badly in all my life. When I
came down to work this morning
I felt so weak I could hardly work.
I went to Miller â€“ McCurdy’s
drug store and they recommended
Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy. It worked
like magic and one dose fixed me
all right. It certainly is the finest
thing I ever used for stomach

in my home hereafter, for I should

five box cars and two flats heading
