D P. McCaleb of Helton, formerly
e member of the State Executive com-
mittee, representing this district, said
of Vice-Commander Campe: "Who is
this man Campe? Why ma i alive!
He is the follow that went through
the entire Spanish American war and
the war with Germany as an enlist-
ed man. lie is the man who refused
to accept a commission several times
because he wanted to stay With the
fellows who (lid the fighting. lie is
the peppiest, snappiest, livest, doitig-
t'rt fellow you have ever seen. The
Only objection to him was that he
was a top sergeant, lie could not
prevent his being made that kind of
a company commander. He is the
King Bee of the live wires! He will
inoculate you with the spirit that has
made the American Legion the great-
est factor for the good in the world."
He was wounded at Mantanzas in
189S while serving in the Spanish
American war; he was one of the
few siirvivors of those who marched
from Tien Sien to Pelun during the
Boxer uprising. He served in the 2nd

France and was awarded a D. S. C.,
a C. de G. and other decorations, and
was three times cited for bravery.
Regarding his visit here a local
legionnaire said: "Vice-Commander

nervke men who are not, members
are urged to attend this meeting and
learn first hand of the great things
the Legion is doing.- of the advan-
tages of being a Legionnaire i.nd of
cooperating with the officers of the
Post in all their undertakings."

NEGRO S.W E1) FROM MOB
Pelton, Feb. 10.—A verdict of
"guilty" was returned by the Jury
her, this afternoon at 5:30 o'clock in
the cane of Homer Joyce, charged
with the murder of John Zuroveo, a
Bohemian, at Temple, on Nov. 29,
and his punishment was assessed at
five years hard labor In the state
penitentiary. The Jury had been out
since 10 o'clock last nl$it.
When the verc'ict was returned,
Joyce, wjio has been out on bond,
was taken into custody by the sher-
iff's department and placed in Jail
to await the action of the court on a
motion for a new trial which attor-
neys for the defendant stated would
be filed immediately. The defendant
appeared calm and unshaken When
the verdict was read1, but women rel-
atives who were present were heart-
broken and wept bitterly when the
sentence was pronounced.
Just about an hour before Joyce
was placed in Jail John Lewellen,
who also stands charged with the
murder of Zurovec, was released on
bond in the sum of $10,001}, after
an agreement had been reached with
the state for his release from jail in
tha* amount. This agreement came
after the court had re-set the Lewel-
len case for next Monday, when it
seemed that the jury in fhe Joyce
case would not bo able to reach an
agreement in time for the hearing
of the LeweUen ease to proceed and
war passed until Monday on account
of Joyce being a material witness in
The hearing upon the Lewellen
habeas corpus proceedings before the
court of criminal appeals at Austin,
which was taken to that court after
bond had been denied the defendant
by Judge Blair, was to have been act-
ed upon by that court today, but
upon reaching tin agreement with the
state for bond' tho court of criminal
appeals was notified that the appeal
had been withdrawn.
It was stated that there was a se-
rious legal question Involved in the
Lewellen case as to whether or not
he could be tried in the court here
pending an appeal on the habeas cor-
pus proceeding and having this in
mind, attorneys for the state stated
that they would agree for bond.
Before Sheriff liou is would approve
1 tie bond for Lewellen he,had three
of tho signers make affidavit as to
their worth. Among those who
signed the instrument were V. E. H.
Reed, S. G. Garth, J. It. Whatley and
several others. It calls for his ap-
pearance In the District court Mon-
day, at which time all witnesses in
tho case and the special venire of
