GEORGIA AND FLORID A
NEWS OF THE TWO STATES TOLD
Crawfordville Democrat: Mr. J W.
Tucker caught Henry last week
up in Oglethorpe county. Henry is the
negro whom Sheriff Callaway shot at
and tried to catch near Lyneville a few
weeks ago. Sheriff M. O. Gilmer of
Gainesville dame down for Henry Friday
last. The prisoner is one of the negroes
who killed a young white man In Hall
county some time ago. He admits that he
struck the man down, but says another
negro shot and killed him. The other ne
gro is still at large.
MR. AKER MAX'S GOOD WORK.
Judge Speer's newly appointed assistant
United States district attorney, Mr. Alejc
Akerman. is making a fine record. Last
week he tried thirty cases before Judge
Speer and secured convictions In all ex
cept four. Mr. Akerman is the son of
the late Amos T. Akerman of Bartow
county, who was attorney general under
President Grant’s administration, who it
would seem has transmitted to the son
some of his great legal ability.
MUCH SMALL GRAIN PLASHED.
Athens Banner: It is a noticeable fact
that in this section of the state there has
been a great increase lately in the sow
ing of small grain crops by the farmers.
The amount of smaH grain raised this
year will be over double that raised a
year or so ago. Patches of oats, wheat
and other grain are seen on every side
in the country, and the indicat ions are
for a bountiful yield this year. It is said
that tile stand of cotton in this section
is the poorest that has ever been at this
season of the year in the last several
DROPPED DEAD IN THE FIELD.
Newman News: Henry Collins, a young
white man living on Capt. J. D. Sims'
place near the line of Heard, was found
dead Monday afternoon. He was plowing
out in a field, and missing him the father
went over about the work to find his son
cold in death near his plowstoek. There
were no marks of violence or evidences
of a struggle. The mule was unhitched
and grazing near by. and the solution !
that the young man became sick and pre
pared to leave the field, tvhen he was
overcome, and passed away without a soul
near to soothe in the dying hour.
UNIVERSITY VLlctni BANQUET.
Athens Banner: The committee in
charge of the alumni banquet at the ap
proaching commencement have mailed
out fifteen hundred notices to os many
alumni of the University of Georgia, tell
ing them of the arrangements that are
being made for the banquet, the time,
place, etc. The committee found some
difficulty In getting a hall large enough to
comfortably accommodate the large num
ber of alumni who are sure to attend.
After a thorough consultation on the sub
ject. the committee decided to hold the
banquet at the Swift building on Foun
dry street. The large room will be put
in beautiful condition and handsomely
decorated for the occasion. It Is expect
ed that fully six and possibly seven hun
dred aiumr.l will gather at the banquet,
and on that occasion the speeches by
members of each class present will be a
most enjoyable feature.
TWO BODIES WASHED ASHORE.
Washington Reporter: The Reporter
learns that the headless body of a negro
has been washed upon a raft in Broad
Tlver, near Anthony Shoals. The body was
first seen Friday, and no efforts were
made to recover it, a* it was in a bad
state of decomposition. Nothing has been
heard of a crime being committed up the
river recently nnd evidently the body was
thrown in away up the stream. In con
nection with the above, we publish the
-following from the lOQberton Trjbune.—
However, it couldn't have been the same
negro, as the body of the Elbert county
find was thrown in the Savannah river,
while the other body was found In Broad
river: "The body of William Goolsby, the
negro rapist, who was drowned in the Sa
vannah river at Craft's- old ferry a fetv
weeks ago, was washed on a rock sev
eral mile* down the stream and a flock
of buzzards were seen around it a few
days ago. At least it was supposed to
be the corpse of the negro."

THE COLQUITT LAND SUIT.
The Macon Telegraph, speaking of the
suit to recover land In Colqult coanty, an
nouncement of which has been made In the
Morning News, gives the following his
tory of the claim: According to the alle
gations. the. lands were originally grant
ed by the state of Georgia to John Foster
of Richmond county. In 1847 he convey
ed the lands to Eliza Anderson, the wife
of Robert Anderson of Hamburg, 8. C.,
and the deed was regularly recorded.
Robert Anderson, and his wife moved to
YValker county. Georgia, in 1868. and Mrs.
Alexander died Intestate in 1881. Her
husband and one child survived -her. This
child is the Carolina A. Kilgore who Is
one of the present complainants. Under
the laws of Georgia at the time of her
death Mrs. Anderson's property, which
she had Inherited from her father, John
Foster, went to her husband. Robert An
derson. Hi* daughter. Caroline, grew up
and married. It* 1883 he again wedded,
his second wife being the Armlnia I.
Anderson, who now Joins Mrs. Kilgore in
the suit. This wife was before marriage
Arinina 1. Catlett. The couple had one
child. 8. R. Anderson, who Is the third
complainant. Robert Anderson died In
Walker county, leaving Armlnia 1. Ander
son and her son, besides Mrs. Kilgore,
his first wife's child. In dividing the es
tate, the widow elected to take a child’s
part, she and Mrs. Kilgore and little
Robert taking share and share alike. Dur
ing these years John Foster's widow,
Jane Foster, had acted a* executrix of
his will, hut It Is alleged that she fully
recognized the lands as having been con
veyed by her husband to Eliza Anderson,
and she made no claim to them. But In
1890. many years after her husband's
death, it is alleged that she was induced
by Henry M. Hitt, a real estate dealer
of Augusta. Ga., to offer the lands for
sale, tm-ause the heirs under the Foster
conveyance had not known or asserted
their lights. The hearing is set for

Sanchez & Haza, the leading cigar

Times Don 'lguncio Haza states that

MOVING FLORIDA CATTLE.
Bartow Courier-Informant: Messrs.
Lightsey and Lewis one day last week
purchased the stock of cattle consisting
of 1,000 head from Hon. R. E. Brown of
l>e fk>to county. They intend to move
this stock at once, together with 000 they
now have on lEstipoga Island, to the Kis

stock in that section. Mr. Henry Lewis is
now in the woods getting them up. This
last deal gives Messrs. Lightsey & Lewis
the largest herd of cattle on this side of
Kissimmee river, and they are preparing
to put more cattle on that range as fast
as the beef cattle are. taken ofT. They
have the contract for moving the Fulton
stock of cattle from the river section,
which are to be loaded at Ballast Point
and Fort Pierce for Mr. H. T. Lykes for
the Cuban markets. This contract con
sists of moving 4,000 head and will take
some time to deliver them all.
THE SALOONS OPEN AGAIN.
Jacksonville Metropolis (Thursday): The
saloons of Jacksonville, after being closed
for nearly two weeks, opened at 7 o'clock
this morning, and the thigsty were on
hand to satisfy themselves. Old topers
have had a hard time for several days
past. Their countenances indicated a dis
appointment that was indeed pitiful. For
days- they cast sheep’s eyes at all the sa
loons they passed. Sometimes they would
venture in, and with a significant wink say
to the bartender: “Can't you let a fel
low have a drop or two?” Bui they were
all turned down. Ginger ale has been the
most popular drink. This Is not usually
the case In Jacksonville, but since the
fire there has been a great demand for It.
One mixologist In speaking of this de
mand said: "We have never had any
special trade In ginger ale before the f%e,
and some days 1 never sold a bottle, but
stnv.e the fire I have disposed of over 5,000
bottles, and I guess other places did even
a better business. We had all kinds of
trouble trying to obey the orders of Col.
Lovell, and in some cases we made old
customers mad. but I believe the best
thing that has been done since the fire
was the closing of the ealoons. The most
pitiful thing I had lo encounter was an
old man who offered me $5 ‘for a dram ’
One of the soldier boys was In the place,
and, of course, SSOO could not have bought
a drink at that time. The man was well
dressed and seemed to be in need of a
drink, but it was no good. I saw him
take a carriage for the Terminal Station,
and that night he entered again. His face
was changed. He opened his valise, and
it contained four quart bottles of rye
whisky. He explained that he had made
the trip to Waycross to get it.”
