guilty, but the court informed him
that he was too hasty, -as the case
was not on trial. No one has
expressed a doubt as to the guilt
of the negro, and his conviction
and execution is only a question
of days. His confession is a long
rambling recital, much of which is
probably untrue, but sufficient to
show, him as a brutal fiend and
to cause profound expressions of
satisfaction and relief when he is
swung into eternity.
There will bo an election held
here on Saturday May 7, for the
purpose of electing four trustees
for the Bartlott Oity schools. Let
all boar this in mind.
