LUNCH CLUB MEETING TO
LOOK INTO ADVISABILITY OF

which there was a large number of
farmers, merchants and business men.
The feature of the meeting was a
discussion of the important questions
of transportation and cold storage
Hon. Frank Reynolds, of Atlanta,
secretary of the Georgia Chamber of
Commerce, was a guest of honor and
delivered the principal speech. He
went fully into a discussion of the
vital subjects and gave some valua
ble information that will be of great
value in establishing the community

Griffin and Spalding county.
Other speakers were J. E. Wallace,

ter of establishing the cold storage
plant and will make a report at the

cold storage question, but dodged that
proposition and gave the pleasing in
formation that the Experiment Sta

that if it was moved it would be ne
cessary for congress to pass a bill to
that effect. In providing that the
federal fund be paid it was provided
that all payments should be made to

HOSPITAL IN CRITICAL CON

SERIOUSLY WOUNDED AT HIS
HOME IN MILNER.
Rege Crawley was brought to the
Griffin hospital Thursday night seri
ously wounded and Pike Ethridge is
suffering from bullet wounds about
the heart at his home near Milner as
the result of a shooting affray between
the two men et the warehouse of the
latter late Thursday afternoon. Offi
cers are now seeking others reported '
to have participated in the affair.
Earlier Thursday Revenue Officer
A. S. Sowell and a party of deputies j
raided a distilling plant while in ope-1
ration near .Milner. Nat Crawley, I
brother of the wounded man, and ‘
three negroes were arersted by the I
officers, who, it is said, caught them '
as they were making a “run.” The I
men were brought to Griffin and turn-!
ed over to Sheriff Patrick.
There are two versions of the cause'
of the shooting. It was first statedl
Rege Crawley accused Ethridge of!
giving the officers information which
led to the raid on his brother’s dis
tilling outfit. Later reports were to
the effect that several days ago one of
the negro tenants on Ethridge's farm ;
slapped one of Crawley’s boys, and i
I that Crawley whipped the negro for |
this act, which caused the trouble
leading up to the shooting, which oc-!
curred at Ethridge’s warehouse and I
resulted in the serious wounding of I
the two men.
