VIDALIA, Ga., July 25.—Frank Earle,
a negro desperado, who held up and
robbed a commissary clerk at Davis*
camp No. 2 on the Macon, Dublin and
Savannah railway near here last Mon
day, was captured yesterday at Helena,
carried to Higgston and put in tho
This morning about 2 o’clock a crowd
unknown men took him from the
jail, carried him out Half a mile from
Higgston and shot him to death.
Earle admitted robbing the clerk, but
claimed he only wanted to collect what
Contractor. Davis owed him for work.
On last pay day Davis had offered him
his wages, but Earle refused to accept
the money. Davis was absent Monday
when Earle returned, urrned with a
rifle. He held up the clerk and robbed
him of $20, which was more than was
him, according tb his own state
Leaving the camp, Earle turned Ills
steps toward Higgston, and while on
the way he held up two farmers and re
Sieved them of their guns. He then
proceeded on his Journey and when
near Alley he accosted two negroes and
made them turn over their "shooting
irons" to him. Farther on he took
pistol from a man named Levorett.
When Earle reached Alley he boarded
est-bound train for Helena, at which
place he was arrested, a request hav
ing been received by Marshal Smith
to effect the capture. An officer was
sent from Vidalla to get the prisoner.
When the officer arrived, he at once
recognized the negro, who was taken
In custody and carried to and placed
in the town Jail at Higgston, from
hich he was taken by unknown
parties and put to death.
Earle, when told he was to be taken
back to Vidalla, exhibited great fear
for his life upon his arrival there,
spent the afternoon in lamentations
over his probable fate, saying that if
vas carried back he would
lynched. His fear increased ns the Ume
for his departure arrived; and his loud
yells attracted the attention of the
hole town. It was necersary to bind
him In order to force him on the train,
There was a reward of 525 offered fern
his arrest, which will doubtless be paid
to Marshal Smith.
Earle came here recently. It is said
he was from Atlanta. Ho was a tall
negro, about 24 years old. Scars on

570 MULBERRY STREET.
ATLANTA, July 25.—A white man
hose identity has not as yet beer
established, was killed last night about
clock near the Butler street cross
ing by a switch engine of the Georgia
railroad. Engineer George Fallings
nv the man on the track and called to
him to get out of the way. The man
stepped from the track, but a moment
later walked back on the right-of-
He was knocked down And
dragged under the engine. The
head was crushed by one of Jthe wheels
of the locomotive and be died almost
instantly. In his pocket was found a
printed card reading “C. L. Kinard,
Sylvester, Ga., shippers of water
melons and fruits." A telegram was
to Sylvester and instructions
came back to ship the body at once.
There Is little doubt but that this is
the man’s name. Kinard was in At
lanta yesterday selling melons from the
Central railroad track, and as he can
not be found today the Impression is
that the dead man is the mining
melon dealer. The crushed condition
of his head and face renders his identi
fication impossible. The body was for
warded to Sylvester this afternoon.

this city. The new engine for the wa

been here and placed in position July
has never reached the city, and <a let
ter to Superintendent Woodward from
the works says that tho engine will
not be completed for several weeks.
The ninety-two-foot iron girders for
the Whitehall street viaduct are also
delayed for the same reason. Con
tractor Wilkins has been expecting
them every week for a month, and now
pays that lie does not know when they
will be here. The two girders are to
span the railroad track's and are Im
portant factors in the construction of
the viaduct. Contractor Wilkins
forging nhead with the work nnd hopes
that he will not have to suspend opera
tions by reason of a failure to get tho
girders. The officials of tho works
when Inst heard from say that the
girders will certainly be ready .for ship

BALTIMORE, July 25.—In 18S0 the
Southern lumber mills had an output
valued at 538,116,000. In ten years this
has advanced to 5105,675,810. Since then
there has been a steady Increase In
production, until today it may be com
paratively estimated that the value of
the output, including the material UBed
for cross-ties, fuel and fencing and the
naval stores by-products, is between
$325,000,000 and $350,000,000. With no
change in the methods which have
been generaly followed In lumbering op
erations, the output in the South might
be expected to reach at some time a
point where an annual decline instead
of an annual Increase will he reported,
but this may be prevented and the tim
ber of the South may be made u per-
petual source of wealth. In this week’s
issue of the Manufacturers’ Record is
noted the beginning of a plan for a
conservative handling of Southern for
ests, which, generally applled.will make
them permanently productive. On this
point the Mnnuacturers’ Record says:
‘For several years, Mr. Grorgo W.
Vanderbilt, on his estate at Blltmore,
N. C., has been giving to tho $outh and
to the rest of the country n magnifi
cent object lesson of the value of sci
entific handling of the forests. Such
object lefeson has been greatly need
ed. Much of the advance made by the
South as a producer of lumber has
been due to the failure in other parts
of the country to adopt plain, common-
sense methods In lumbering opera
tions. Immense tracts of tlsiber laud
have been denuded by the wholesale,
with a great waste of cut timber, de
struction of younger growth and tin
absolute disregard of tho future. With
tho transfer of energies to tho South
and an acceleration of those already
there, like carelessness and lack of
foresight have been manifested. The
efforts of the forestry division of the
United States department of agriculture
culminating In the plan for a vast for
est reservation nt the summits of the
Appalachians in five or six Southern
states and the work of such progressive
men as Mr. Vanderbilt have done much
to fasten attention upon the necessity
for a conservative handling of tho for
ests still standing in the South and a
reservation of woodland in regions de-
voVed wholy to agriculture, or left to
wnste after the turpentine workers and
lumbermen have wrought their work.
"One state in the South which has
come to the front ns a lumber produ
cer seems destined to become the lend
er in the adaptation of common senso
nnd science to lumbering undertakings.

informing him that the tax digests of
that county had been forward to At

stated that the returns from Decatur
county this year showed an Increase
over last year of $446.896—nearly a half
million dollars. This Immense increase

roxns the statement was made that It
had entered into a cnntrnct with the
Kirby Lumber Company, organised nt
the same time for the sale and manu
facture of the timber standing on the
1.000,000 acres of Its oil lands. This
rontract Involves the cutting of 8,000.-
000,000 feet of timber nt the rule of no$
than 350.000.000 feet n year. If tho
minimum only shall be cut nearly tw«n-
ty-three years will cover the contract.
Under ordinary conditions It might bo
expected that tho close of those twen
ty-three years would show a vast tract
land nt the mercy of the ele
ments. The contrnet between th« oil
company and the lumber company con
templates no such thing. It looks to
the exploitation of tho forest, nnd, nt
tho same time ,to Its Indefinite preser
vation, if not cultivation. No treo less
than one foot In diameter is to be cut
nnd care is to be had that snpilngs
and other young growth are to be un
injured. The results of this undertak
ing may be easily estimated for tho

there are vast tracts best suited to

lumber supply, but as regulators of tho

parts of the South.
