The Case Will Now
Go To the Supreme
Court, it is Said
Dayton, Tenn., July 21.—The State
of Tennessee against John Thomas
’ Scopes, on trial for eight days in Rhea
county court, tonight was the case of
John Thomas Scopes against the State
of Tennessee. Conviction of Scopes
today on a charge of violating the
Tennessee law against the teaching of
theories of evolution in public schools
paved the way for an appeal to the
State Supreme Court.
The scene of the “evolution test”
will be shifted from Dayton to Knox-,
ville, where under the regular order of
procedure, the Tennessee court will
hear cases from this circuit the first
Monday in September.
After both defense and state coun
sel had agreed this morning that the
defendant should be convicted, the
jury returned a verdict in les3 than
The minimum fine of SIOO was im
posed by the court and bail was fixed
at SSOO. The defendant made a sure
ty bond for his appearance in Rhea
County Circuit Court the first Mon
day in December, when the Supreme
Court is expected to have passed upon
the case. As soon as the verdict was
returned the defense moved for a new
trial and when this was over ruled,
, Scopes’ attorneys made the other
customary legal motions to complete
the record and send the case on its
way to the Supreme Court.
The beginning of the end of the
case that b.is covered a wide variety
on subjects was noted soon after court
convened this morning. Attorneys on
the contending sides of the issue an
nounced that they had decided to fore
go argument and submit the case at
once to the jury.

ON THE JOB ALL THE TIME
I Mi-. Burbon Richardson, our on-the
job-all-the-time deputy sheriff, has
lately ayonned the blind tiger folks by
carrying off the stills without per
mission. He brings one in almost ev
ery week, and no doubt there are more
from where these came from, if reports
are true. We heard of a man once
who walked three miles to steal wood
on a cold winter night, when by actu
al calculation he had to expend three
times the time and energy that would
have been necessary to get the wood
honestly. Why will these violators of
the law do likewise when they could
mf.ke an honest living otherwise by
less effort or risk?
FRACTURED HIS ARM
We are sorry to learn of an accident
to Mr. Buck Richard’s little boy this
week. While playing upstairs in a
Pack house he fell or w r as pushed
from the door to the ground below
and fractured his arm near the wrist.
