at Wilmington, concerning the suit of
$50,000 brought by some bond selling
company against the Washington

through other agencies. This was done
during the term cf the previous board,

handed dowfi by Judge I. M. Meekins
here today to six members of the
jury in the first liquor case brought

a considerable sensation itr the city.
Tta. I lodges, well known farmer of
the county, had been brought up in
court on t,he charge of manufacturing
liquor. He was represented by H,
C. Carter. The jury was selected, and
evidence of a strong nature* was in
troduced by the government, tending
t.. show that Hodges had been manu
„fucturii)g liquor for some time. The
defense had very little "to offer in
refutation of this veidence. Judge
j Mcokins charged the jury-that if they
! belioved the evidence to be .true .it
j was their duty to find Hodges guilty.
I The jury went out imd remained
in their room for-about half an houi
when word was sent to Judge Meekins
that the foreman desifed to talk, to
him. An audience was given and the
juror informed the judge that the
twelve men were unable to reach an
agreement. The . judge ir.iwifestec".

"How do you stand?" he wanted
to know, and was informed that six
were for conviction anil six for ac
quittal. Whereupon he ordered the
"jury returned to the court room,
proceeded to discharge them. Before
doiifg so, however, he asked the six
men who were for'acquittal to stand
up. This they did. The judge looked
them over and then told them thai
they could leave the court room and
that they need not fear bciug called
again to serve as jurors on a liquor
case. More than that, he directed the
cltrk not to pay them for their at
tendance as jurors. The six men
fded out of the room rather sheep
ishly. A new jury was, semeteil arid
the same.case was brought up for a

Ann Peterson, Formerly a
Slave, Born in 1815;
Lived Near Here
Ann ' Peterson, aged negress, died
at the Ajlsbrooks farm near here
early yesterday morning. She was
born in November, 1815, and if she
had lived until next nufflth, 'sßl- would
h:-ve reached the ripe old age of 112
years.
„ The life of the aged woman carries
v ilh. it ttUtliy sorrow* and hardships.,
She was til!*daughter of Went India
negroes who were slaves in Missis- i
sippi when Ann was born. She was
named Taylor a'fter her master, who
was a large . slave holder in that
state. She grew to womanhood, and
von a slave husband with tlu> consent,
of their musters at the age of 25
>inr». She had two children by this
marriage, but they were only a few
years "old before she lost them when
-her master exercised .his property
rights and sent Ann to North Caro
lina where she was sold. Separated
from her husband and two children,
.by never heard a word from tlioiQ,
after leaving .Mississippi.
Jler purchaser was named Williams |
which name she went undo! - for
a while. A few years after coming
I t re, she. was married to lillt Peter
son, the man servant of a neighbor!
slave owner, ■ near Knfield. To tllis
union there were born four children,
I.OUJS, lieadie and Lucy.
Ileadie lives in South Carolina-and is
i ow 7(1 years old. She has a sofy Ro'b
irt L. ('rowell, of Everetts ami he is
50 years old.
After the slaves were given their
freedom and the right to contract
the common law marnage accorded
them, Ann married Hill Peterson.
I At the time of her death, she'was
living with Lucy Brown on .the Hamil
ton Willianiston road. She was a hard
workejj, honest and polite in all her
I dealings, and was ,a general favorite
of both white and vfdored people. I'n
ril two weeks ago, she was clear in
iiMlui, and sound in body, doing many
things around the house. She helped
i with the cooking and other house
work .and even assisted with the
family washing,
'A month before her death she direct
ed her children as to where and how
.- he wished to be Juried. Slit? selected
a little cliurch yard in Halifax county
in vnowy white-doth and placed there
and asked that her body be wrapped
beside her people.
The last words spoken' by the aged
oman who had served as a slave for
# iiiore than 50 years and enjoyed more
. than 60 years .of freedom, came three
tlayj before her death when she call
ed her mother whom she bad not seen
for nearly a century and said, "I
will be there in a day or two."
Her last wishes were granted and
the body was carried „U> the little
prave yard in Halifax county this
morning.

we can but think she is entitled to a

In his Inief talk. Mr'. Pope asked .

both socal functions and work. That
