tory offense against a ten year old
girl, was bound ovor to tho next term
of tho grand Jury by Justice of tho
Peace Glenn Taylor upon S3000
bonds. This Is one the heaviest bonds'
ever Imposed upon a man charged
with a crime In tho annals of Jack
son county courts. Tho court said
tho bond might seem execsstvo to
some, but that In view of tho hcln
ousness of tho offonso tho ball de
mand was light.
Attorney Porter J. Neff represent
ing Hamlin, asked for a light bond,
and was strenuously opposed by Pros
ecutor Kelly, who classified tho tes

"the most damnablo ho had ever
'heard.'' The defenso also took ex

''that In somo communities men had
been lynched for similar crimes."
The mother of tho Ilttlo girl wept
throughout tho entire proceedings.
Hamlin i tt pioneer o( this ecctlori,
and has a family. Ho was arrested
about 18 months ago for cutting a
fellow socialist with a knife- during
