JUS INDICTED BY
THE GRAND Jll
TRUE BILL AGAINST CLINTON
BROWN WAS RETURNED
IS CHARGED WITH \ FELONY
The City Jailer Accused of Assault
With Intent to Murder—lndict
ment Grows Out of Old
As was to have been expected
the grand Jury, at Its session yes
terday morning, returned a true
bill against Clinton Brown, at pres
ent the city jailer, charging him with
the offense of assault and intent to
murder. The facts leading up to this
indictment are familiar to the people
of this city.
Some time ago there was a differ
ence between Brown and T. L. Lamb,
at that time a member of the police
force of the city of Brunswick.
Brown, it is claimed, invited Lamb
to accompany him into the rear of
the city jail yard, and when some dis
tance from the back entrance to the
barracks, secured a gun, which he
had secreted in the yard, and attempt
ed to kill Lamb.
The latter, seeing the situation,
got out of the way before any damage
wasi done. The cases were taken up
by the city council and Lamb was
discharged from the force for con
duct unbecoming an officer and Brown
was suspended for a period of 30
Here the matter rested until the
grand jury met and took the case up
from a criminal standpoint, with the
Of course, like all other cases of
this character, there are several
-sides of the story, and it likely that the
truth of the matter will never be
known until the case against Brown
is finally placed on trial.
The original case, disposed of by
the city council, created considerable
interest in the city and it is to be
presumed that this development will
be equally interesting.
Up to a late hour last night the
warrants had not ben placed in the
hands of the sheriff, but it is more
than likely that, it will be done early
this morning. In the meantime tho
defendant is under bond in the sum
of one thousand dollar,-, having been
so placed in the justice court.

Several accidents have occurred

THE MILL SEEMS CcrtTAm.
Wisconsin Lumbermen Hav e Abput
Decided to Locate Here.
It is understood that information
was received in the city yesterday to
the effect that Messrs. Snell and Rice,
of Wisconsin, who were here last week
looking into the advisability of build
ing a large saw mill here, have about
decided to make the investment.
When these gentlemen were in
Brunswick they were seen by a rep
resentative of the News and expressed
themselves as being very much pleas
ed with the city as a good site for a
large and thoroughly up-to-date mill.
They have recently purchased some
very fine timber lands on the line of
the B. & B. and other sections
of the county, and it now seems more
than probable that they will come
to Brunswick and build the mill as
was originally contemplated.
If this be the case it may mean
much for this city, and give us a
new enterprise of the character that
we really need.

TWO OTHER CONCERNS
CHARTERED BY JUDGE PAR
Two more new business cocerns
were incorporaien in the superior
court yesterday morning which means
that the commerce of the city is to be
enhanced by just that many new and
Probably the most important of the
two, is the Glynn Development com
pany, which is organized by a num
ber of the most prominent business
men of the city. The company, which
is. a brad new one, propose to en
gage largely in the handling of real
estate and improved property. The
incorporators are among the most sub
stantial business representatives of
the community, and there is bo ques
tion but what the concern will, in
a short time, rank among the sound
est concerns of the fjlty.
The Stanley Land Go., like its broth
er Incorporation, is anew venture in
business Brunswick. It will have be
hind it some very strong people. It
will also make the real estate line
a special field of endeavor and It is
more than likely to succeed.

TALK OF FORMING A BIG
The following sent out under an

of interest in Brunswick fire insur
ance circles generally:
’’Current fire insurance rumors
speak of the early amalgamation of
the Southeastern Tariff association,,
and the Southern Inspection bureau,
F. J. McFadden, now secretary of
the burtan, as assistant secretary.
The S. E. T. A. is now allowed by
reason of anti-compact laws, to op
erate only In Georgia, North Carolina,
Florida, Alabama and Virginia. The
bureau does not make rates, but
makes surveys of special hazards and
leaves it to the companies to name
their rates, thus being to operate in
all the southern and southeastern
Interested managers point out many
advantages of the amalgamation,
which is also looked upon favorably
by company headquarters. Under
present arrangements the two con
cerns impose a rather heavy tax upon
their members, and tho expense of
maintaining the two separately is
greater than if they were one. It
is also believed that better results
can ho obtained by operating both
bodies from one headquarters. The
projected amalgamation will be a
matter of very great interest to all
fire insurance agents as well as to
every company operating in this sec

ly after 12 o’clock, the great gathering
was called to order by General 1,.
B. Levert, commanding the Louisia
na division of Confederate veterans.
In the great crowd of grand old
men there were delegates from ev
ery southern state. Th auditorium a
great structure, was a solid mass of
Confederate flags and hunting and
pictures of Lee, Jackson and other
leaders of the Confederacy.
There was not a foot of vacant
space in this mammoth building when
after the prayer by , Chaplain-Gen

in a patriotic speech welcomed the
visitors. Mayor Capodeville exten

presented the building to the veterans.
He told of the services which Louis

'people of New Orleans during those
'trying days and referred to the city
[as the home of Beauregard and other
I famous heroes of the war.
| General John B. Gordon arose to
respond to the address but it was at
'least ten minutes before the enthti
siam at the sight of their old loader
could be controlled by the presiding
officer. The waving of flags, the hur
rah of the old veteran-- and the gen
eral great welcome accorded to Gen
eral Gordon is a sight never to he
forgotten. Mon who iiave never at
tended the reunions before, saw their
old commander for the first time
since they left him at the ciose of
the war. General Gordon looks any
thing but well. When order was re
stored the General responded to the
address of Mr. Krutchitt. In accept
ing the building General Gordon than
ked the people of New Orlenas for
the warmth of the welcome and made
touching reference to the recent death
of General Moorman, for many years
Adjutant of the Confedtrate Veter

It’s easy to Shake off the Coffee Habit
There are many people who make
the humiliating acknowledgement
that they are dependent upon Cof
fee to “brace them up” every little
while. These have never learned the
truth about Postum Cereal Coffee
which makes leaving off coffee a sim
ple matter and brings health and
strength in place of coffee ills. A
lady of Davenport, lowa, who has us
ed Postum Food Coffee for five years
is competent to talk upon the subject.
"I am a school teacher and during
extra work when 1 thought I needed
to be braced up I used to indulge in
rich, strong coffee of which I was
very fond and upon which I thought
1 was dependent.
"I began to have serious heart pal
pitation and at times had sharp pains
around the heart and more or less
stomach trouble. I read about Pos
tum and got some to try. I dropped
coffee, took up the Postum and it wor
ked such wonders for me that many
of my friends took it up.
"in a short time I was well again
even able to attend evening socials,
and 1 did not miss my coffee at all.
Now l can truthfully say that I have
been repaid fully for the change 1
made. 1 have no indications of heart
disease and not once in the past four
months have I had a sick headacho
or billious spell.
"My lather, 78 years old, is a IJos
tum enthusiast and feels that his good
health in a large measure, is due to
the six cups of good Postum which
he enjoys every day,”
