The Highway Department has made no official announcement of the contract that was closed Monday, but the report comes from reliable sources and is of sufficient authenicy to be accepted.

Two negroes, giving their names as Mariam Green and Evans Gibbs, were arrested last Thursday by Mil ledgeville police when they attempt ed a bunco game on Jim Jackson. Dublin police came here Saturday with warrants charging the men with similar offenses and took them in custody. Green canu? to Milledgeville during the Christmas holidays and formed an acquaintance with Jim Jackson, pretending to Jackson that he was in the market for a house. Thursday morning the two negroes were on Wayne street talking when Gibbs walked up and picked an envelope off the side walk filled with fake money and wnr saving stamps. They showed Jack-on their find and went down an alley and counted out the money. They told Jackson they would divide with him if he would give them two hundred dollars and they would all keep their mouths shut about their find. There was about nine hundred dollars in the envelope and Jackson in the trade was to re ceive three hundred for his two. Jackson became suspicious and to!d the police. The trade went on with the police watching. Just as it was about to be completed Chief Haynie and officer Broom walked up and ar rested them. The envelope contain ing the money was not found. Police of neighboring cities were notified of the arrest and it was be lieved they were members of a gang working the scheme in Augusta. The negrosc admitted their guilt and in the event the Dublin officials fa ; l to get evidence enough to con vict the negroes will be returned here.
