At the trial Tuesday of Mr. M.
Jordan of Beaufort County, l>efore
Magistrate Godwin, on the charge
of forgery, the case was dismisse.i,
the opinion of the magistrate be
ing no probable cause. The case
attracted a great deal of attention
and the court room was crowded.
About eight years ago a Mr.
Arthur Hardison, agent for the

Now conies the charge of forgery
against Mr. Jordan, alleging that
he (Jordan) signed the deed, and
