placing the ballot boxes at the door, instead
of in the lobby, as heretofore, came to the
conclusion that it would not be proper, and
that the Board did not have the right to

placing of the boxes as suggested, would
virtually be closing the court house. It was
agreed 'hat the sale of liquor should be sup

A BOLD THIEF.
An Escaped Convict from the Augusta
Camps Makes a Raid on a Citizen’s
Stables, Steals a Mule ami is
It will be remembered that about the ,
middle of the present month, some 15 con
victs escaped from the camp of Bondurant
& Joplin, near Augusta, in
broad daylight. One of them,
a young big black fellow, about 23 years
age, serving a 12 year sentence, for burglary
committed in Cherokee county seven years
ago, made his way to this city, and on Mon
day night, about 2 o’clock, went to the stables
of Mr. Richard Fogarty, on Sims and West
Broad streets, broke open his stables, stole a
mule and riding it about 18 miles up the
Ogeechee < anal sold the animal to some one
for the sum of $2. The animal was worth
S2OO Mr. Fogarty, in company with a
friend, Mr. Edwards, started out
on the thieFs tracks and succeeded
in tracing him to the place where
he sold the mule. There they got a minute
description <f the thief and the direction
in which he went. Returning toward the
city, they overtook the thief near the upper
lock, and by conversation and threats suc
ceeded in getting a confession from him.
Taking him in charge they brought him to
the city and turned him over to Officer
Frank McDermott, who lodged him in jail
on a commitment from Justice Folliard.
The thief gave the name of William Slot
ter. Bondurant and Joplin were notified
o-day by letter of the arrest, but it is
highly probable that Slotter will receive a
dose < f Chatham county justice before he
returns to the Augusta brickyard. He was
entirely unconcerned at his arrest, and said
he wi bed to return to Augusta.
Messrs. Richardson & Barnard cleared
the British steamship Shildon for Liver

800 sacks cotton seed, weighing 160,000
pounds. Total valuation $180,973.
