the identity of any member of the
mob was elicited. The verdict was
given three minutes after the testi testimony

City and county officials testified
that they had endeavored diligently
to get at the facts. Their efforts so
far are unavailing.
"These things are kept pretty close
and are hard to find out," Mayor
Deputy Sheriff Hicks and City
Marshal Looney stated they were
working hard on the case but could
not throw any light on the identity
of the lynchers. The nearest thing
to a disclosure was made by J. A.
Benson, a Marietta merchant. Mr.
Benson said he drove by the place
soon after the lynching. The party
had parked its automobiles by the
road side and led Frank to the death
tree. He said he had a pretty good
idea what was going on. He did not
stoy to see it. He did not recognize
anyone in the party.
W. J. Frey, near whose cotton gin

his field when three or four automo automobiles

Frank. He hastened to his house and

the cars had stopped, and the two of

Mr. Hudson came from Lake City to

As long as the present mercantile

combinations, make prices to over overcharge

The farmers will never receive

this matter has been informally con
sidered by the board to the extenet
of discussing land located in differ
ent sections of South and East Flor
ida as a possible site for the school,
but these discussions never proceed proceeded
ed proceeded even so far as to provide for the
selection of the committee to make
investigations; in fact, the matter has
not been taken up for formal consid
eration by the board of commission
ers of state institutions. When the
matter of selecting a location for the
girls' industrial school is brought up
for consideration and determination
by the board, the Marion Farms will
doubtless receive careful considera
tion as the board has an option on
the land and it could be purchased if
the board should decide to pursue
that course. No sale of the land by
the owners could be consummated
until -the option held by the board of
state institutions shall have expired
at the end of the present year, with

The foregoing may be considered
final in regard to this matter. While
as Mr. Knott says, the board of state
institutions has an option on the
farms until the end of the year, there
are no funds available for the pur purchase,

made appropriation for that purpose.
