charge did not explode, tbe cap being
slightly indented from the force of the

was placed by tbe negroes, who pre
viously worked the mine, and who
neglected to remove it.

NOT POISON AT ALL.
An . Imitation to Frighten A
The charge against Oral Poindexter,
the 12-year-old boy accused of trying
to poison members of tbe Widow
Smith's family near Cohurg, was dis
missed Friday morning by Jvstic
There was no evidence to convict;
tbe boy, who proved a complete alibi
at the time of tbe last supposed at-;
tempts of poisoning were committed.
About eight witnesses were examined j
on each side aud there was tome opn- j
flirting testimony. One of to little
girls, a atep-granddaugbttr of Mrs.
Hinlth, testifies tbat she saw the boy,
Oral Poindexter, enter the premise, at
the time some of the supjxaed poison
and the last threatening notes were'
left at the house, but her testimony
was not accepted.
There was no evidence introduced to
show that there really bad been any
poison placed about the house, except
ing at one time when some vitrei waa
found in the pump. The other stuff
scattered about the premises, which
Mrs. Smith thought whs poison, was
only an Imitation substance placed
there with an evident Intention of'
frightening her. In fact the examina
tion has tended to show tbatth,ere wag
no intention to kill any member of the
Smith family, but Instead an effort
was being made to frighten Mra. Smith
so that she would leave the ranch.
This explains very clearly why the
family persecutor did not succeed in
poisoning any members of the family
as was at first supposed he waa trying
to do. - .
As for the little girl being struck on
tlie head, this part, of the affair is be
lieved to be a boax a no the gifl is
believed to have beeii prompied to tell
ths aud other stories by thd'peteon
who is really at the bottom of the
Potter & Condon who prosecuted te
case, joined with DorriH&Btvans,wiiQ
had charge of th,e defense, in tlie effort
to ferret the matter out and flnd 'ok
who tho guilty party is, and they are
confident they now know to whom to
j attach the blame for the whole affair
namely a member of the persecuted
family. However It is believed that
the trouble has come to utermbauaand
if such shall proa lo be the case the
suspected party will doubtless be al
lowed to go without being prosecuted.
Tbe result of the examination has
shown that the boy, Qral fohidextef.a
bright young lad, had nothing what
ever to do witb tbe crime. Eugene
