P. D. Deaton, forermly co-publisher
of The Mountaineer, left Wednes
day morning for Gainesvillei Ga.,

printing plant, and will operate it.
Mr. Deaton came to Waynesville
about 18 months ago from Johnson
City, Tenn., and cecame a partner in
The Mountaineer. He sold hi's inter

Judge Felix Alley in his charge to
the grand jury Monday morning, held
the members of that body as well as
the vast throng that filled the court
room to capacity, as he set out the
duty of the grand jury and defined
four common crimes perjury, seduc

usual manner of delivery, Judge
Alley impressed on his hearers the
folly of crime and sin. So forcefully
did he bring his charge that only a
few of his hundreds of listeners real
ized that it consumed more than an
The Mountaineer is printing a few
of the paragraphs from trie charge:
"You hae a two-fold duty to per
form nn. to the state, or to the pc
pie as a whole to see that parties
against whom there is just ground to
chartre the commission of crime shall
be held to answer the charge, and on
the other hand the duty to the citi
zen to see that he is not subjected
to persecution upon accusations hav
ing no better foundation than public
clamor or private vengeance.
"The peace, the good order, the
morality and well-being of the com
munity depend in a large measure
upon your diligence, intelligence and
integrity of purpose, for, on the one
hand, it is your duty to disregard
trivial-offenses brought to this court
for the purpose of persecution and
vengenance, and on the other hand,

the crime of perjury. We come in
