FROM THE CAPITOL
OF OUR STATE
JEditor Daniels is a "Bigger Man" To-day
Than he Ever was Before.
June 6th 1904.
Well, that judicial pair of Pi did
not succeed in throwing any body
into jail after all I
Another and bigger Pof the U.
SL Circuit Court, to wit judge Pritch
ard, put a quietus on the "lower
case" pof the district court in
short order, after hia arrival here
Friday afternoon, and not only re
leased editor Daniels from the cus
tody, or companionship, of a
deputy marshal!, but discharged
him absolutely, '-without day" (as
the lawyers say) and dismissed the
ease again t him, on the ground
that the editorial ut trances com
plained of by Judge Pumell did not
constitute a case of contempt with
in the meaning of the statute.
Thereupon, editor Daniels vaca
ted the luxurious apartments at the
New Yatboro hotel, in which he
had been "incarcerated" for three
days, and returned to the bosom of
h : s family and friends—many of
the latter turning out to give him
an ovation, such as should be
gratifying to any man.
Result: Joe Daniels is today a
"big ;er man'Mian he ever was be
-1 f.»re in his life—and his friends owe
jjud-e Turnell a vote of thanks
As for Judjge Pritchard, he is now
heralded as *'the great liberator,"

printed a tig picture of him on its
first pag«*. Ju'lc TurneM in the
meantime is said to be ' feeling

And Judge Pi eblcs fanned out,
too, when his superior officer call

three atrikes was aimed at one or
the other of the three affidavit
makers (Kerr, Carroll snd Souther
land) whom he had sentenced to
jail without giving them an oppor
tunity to sh >w cause in court why
they shoal 1 not be punished for
contempt. That omission was fa
tsl in law to Judge Peebles action
and the hebeas corpus petitioners
were discharged by Supreme Court
"the contempt case of Judge
Peebles vs. the Roberson county
lawyers has also been settled, as a
result of this hearing before Justice
Connor—Justices Doug'as and Wal
ker sitting with him at his request.
Ihess judges handed down an
opinion, soon after discharging
Kerr, et al, in which they made it
clear that they did not think that
the action of the lawyers in declin

for proceeding against them for
contempt of court. Counsel for

so as to make the senteoce read.
••The respondents deny that it was
their purpose, ao isr as they then
knew or now know, to reflect upon
the offi.ial character on personal
integrity of Judge R. B. Peebles or
to bring him into disrepute or con
tempt " Judge Peebles very prop
erly holds that th a language
"purges" the lawyers of all con

proceedings against t' em. So the
case is dismissed, apparently to
the satisfaction of both bench and
