Reuben Hawkins, a noted i Wilkes
county Radical, and keener of the poor
house, was indicted. for. maltreatment
of the poor, was tried, convicted, ap
pealed to the Supreme Court, and the
Case came up for another, hearing in the
Superior Court of his county last week.
The court took a recess for dinner and
before it re-convened Reuben had fled.
Thus writes a Wilkes correspondent of
the Raleigh News. ;
A Wilkes county correspondent, writ
ing the Raleigh News about the Supe
rior Court up there last week .and the
week before, says the grand jury failed
to find a bill against Alfred Edmund
son, who killed Tedder and severely
wounded Elijah Church in a difficulty
that occurred in that county "H few
months ago. The two latter were hoted
desperadoes and outlaws, and went to
Edmundson's house one night for the
purpose of killing him, but he was a
noted tighter and the result was Tedder
was killed and Edmundson and Church
badly wounded; both were captured by
the sheriff and lodged in jail. Edmund
son was released and Church goes to
the railroad three years and six months.
