JUDGE MALCOLM C. EARfER TO
PRESIDE OVER SUPER! COURT
New Judge To Hold His First Court In This
County And Lawyers And Other Court
Officers Will Be In Their Places.
The Bartow superior court will
meet next Monday morning for the
regular January term. Associated with
its meeting will mark the beginning of
the term of Judge C. Tarver
who has been commissioned as judge
and is this week holding court in
Whitfield county. Notwithstanding
the fact that a great number of the
people of the county have met Judge
Tarver and have seen him as an ad
vocate in the court room and have
heard him deliver quite a number of
addresses before secret orders and in,
his active campaign fof the judgeship
during the last democratic primary,
there is every evidence of interest
shown which will cause many to at
tend court this term and witness his
manner and conduct in the high and
honorable position which he has as
sumed as judge of the superior courts
Of the Cherokee circuit.
Judge Tarver is perhaps today the
youngest superior court judge in Geor
gia. It is said that the framers of the
constitution of Georgia were of the
opinion that a man was not sufficiently
mature to hold this office until he be
comes thirty yeark of age and, hence,,
by constitutional prohibition a lawyer
is held disqualified for this office of
any younger age. Mr. Tarver was in
his thirty-first year during the cam
paign and is now only slightly over
thirty-one years of age.
He has been, however, a close stu
dent of the law and has thrown into
its study and mastery every facutly
and natural talent possessed by him
with the result that he has, in a few
\ years, achieved a reputation as a
strong advocate and practitioner. He
is universally conceded as one of the
most skilful, hardworking, earnest and
vigorous lawyers in North Georgia,
and notwithstanding his youth, has al
ready attained an eminence granted to
few men of his' age of this day and
time. He is likewise a self-made man,
securing his education largely through
his own labors, and the material help
to a small extent, of friends who be
lieved in him. After his entrance to
the bar, lawyers at once begun to rea
lize that he had in him splendid legal
ability, that he applied himfelf to the
study of his profession and to the mas
tery of the details of each and evfcry
case which he undertook to handle.
It was, therefore, but natural that he
should soon be considered as judicial
timber and when he became a candi
date and appealed to the voters of the
circuit he was given that support from
each and every county at once which
made him a formidable and finally suc
cessful candidate for the position.
There are those that predict that.

will be considered as the best judge
in Georgiy and his friends are sure
that in his administration of the du
ties of the office equal and exact jus
tice will be done-to each and all with
out reference to any external fact or
condition, and that the majesty of the

all men will accord to the newly in

and Jo equal rights between the poor'
and the rich.” < ” *
Monday morning Judge Tarver will

and after observing the formalities in

trial of his first case in Bartow county.
Coming in also for the full term of
four years will be Solicitor General J.
M. Lang, who has just completed the
unexpired term of Hon. T. C. Milner.
During the short term Mr. Lang es
tablished a reputation as an able
prosecuting officer and with the ex
perience derived from the two years
of service in this position he Vill
doubtless be able to furnish a yet more
satisfactory record during the next
four he has been chosen to serve'
iu this capacity.

All drawn jurors are expected to be
in their places in the court room
promptly upon the convening of court
and it is said that no juryman will be
excused from service except for legal
reason properly presented.
Withstanding the honoP and the money
value attached to these prizes and the
many congratulations which he has
received, Jack, as he is called by hun
dreds of his friends', remains the same
modest, affable, genial man among
men, which gives additional cause for
the well wishes which follow' him
through this and the succeeding years.
LOCAL U. S. MARINE WILL

Fred Palfrey, a United States Mar

aboard the New Hampshire, while the
big dreadnaught steams through the
waterway from coast to coast.
Comparatively few Americans are
favored with an opportunity to visit
the great canal, and this trip to the
tropics, which has been aptly timed to
avoid the rigors of a northern winter,
will doubtless prove of great educa

CARTERSVILLE, GA., JANUARY 4, 1917
SERiOUS ACCIDENT -
A1 STREET GROSSING
Runaway Horse Driven By
Yank Tatum Rushes In
Front (V Csenin.
— ' _—
Saturday morning a serious accident
occurred at the Main Street Crossing
of the Western & Atlantic Railroad,
within the heart of the business sec
tion of the city, which caused all who
witnessed it to shudder with appre
hension and dread.
A horse, driven by young Yank
Tatum, attached to a buggy took
f’ ight on Main street and begun to '
run toward the crossing. Young Tatum
was seen doing his best to control the
animal but being a large and strong
horse it rushed headlong down the
street. Young Tatum sought to turn j
him into the driveway leading toward
the cotton warehouse and turning out
at Young Bros, drug store. He partly
succeeded in doing this but the horse
swerved agaiu and made his way for
the crossing, nearly upsetting tht*
buggy on the sharp turn made. Just
as he got on the main track the Louis
ville & Nashville through train for
Cincinnati caught the buggy, jerking
the horse around against the power
ful locomotive and dashing the buggy,
with Mr. Tatum a distance of fully
Young Tatum was thrown against a.
freight car standing near the platform
of the depot, his head striking the box
ing of the wheels and blood gushed
from his weanr’e He was picked up
by friends who had little hope of find
ing him alive and much less for living
any length of time. Medical aid was
summoned and he was at once carried
to the office of Dr. A. B. Greene, the
nrMroad surgeon, where his wounds
were examined and dressed. It was
found that he was 'yet conscious, not-s
withstanding the suddenness* and
great force of the impact, and in a
short time was carried to the home of
a friend of the family, where he is
doing well considering the nature of
Those who witnessed the accident
attach no blame to the railroad crew
in charge of the train colliding-with
the driver and buggy, nor to the boy
who was apparently doing his best to
avoid reaching the crossing, but the
accident was altogether due to the
mad rush of a run away horse.
The buggy was torn to atoms. The
horse suffered tjie breaking of one or
more legs which necessitated killing
him and a large crowd congregate.!
immediately after the accident and
viewed the place where happened what
appeared would be a fatal and bloody
It was with great relief that news
was carried from the ‘wounded man j
that he was likely not fatally hurt and J
those who witnessed marveled with i
wonder that he escaped with his life, j
The watchman, D. H. Jordan, saw i
the oncoming danger and did all ini
his power to avert it but wus unable
to keep tlie horse from rushing on to
the crossing in front of the train he
saw approaching. It was an unavoid
able accident in so far as human
agency was concerned and the many
friends of the injured young man are
hopeful that he will soon recover and
that, he will suffer no permanent, in
juries from his experience.

several years have been laudable un

a very large majority of the sentiment
of the county is in favor of a contin

a great time for the gathering of the
i people of the county at one central
point, for an opportunity to view what
has been accomplished in progressive
agriculture, breeding of live stock,
household economics, and the various
stljer features which have been played
