THE TWENTIETH CENTURY COUNTRY WEEKLY.
BARNESVILLE, GA., THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 1902.
PIKE’S KEGVI,AII APIUL. TERM
IN SESSION THIS WEEK.
Pike Superior court convened in
Zebulon Monday morning in its
regular April term, his Honor,
Judge E. J. Reagan, presiding.
Court was opened promptly at
9 o’clock, a large number of at
torneys and citizens being present.
The grand jury, composed of
many of the best and most intel
ligent citizens of the county, met
and elected Hon. John F. Mad
den as its foreman. Judge Rea
gan charged the grand jury briefly,
referring to the various statutes
required of him by the law, after
which the work of the court was
begun in earnest.
The cases set for trial were taken
up and a good part of the lirst
day consumed in the suit of A. 0.
Murphey and Hunt vs Central
railroad. This is a case for dam
ages, which has already been tried
twice in the superior court and
once in the supreme court and
won everytime by the plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs shipped a car of
grapes in 1897, which were damag
ed in transit. They brought suit
for $435. The railroad is still
fighting the case and their attor
neys say that they will carry it to
the supreme court of the United
States. Railroads require the
public to pay cash, but when the
public gets anything out of the
railroads, it ia uAuaily at the end
of the law.
Several divorce cases -were tried
Monday and the cases set for the
week proceeded with.
Solictor Bloodworth announced
Monday that the criminal docket
would be taken up next Monday.
A SHORT SESSION
Judge Reagan announced in the
beginning that he wanted to dis
pose of all business in six days,
instead of holding two weeks as is
usual. He said he had been re
quested by numerous citizens to
hold only one week, and he would
endeavor to dispose of all business
within this time. Thus, court may
adjourn today, until Monday and
hold two or three days next week.

Doubtless nearly everybody no
