John Crooms, the Negro who killed bailiff Jim Hamlin, in Worth county, about three years ago, and whose trial has been pending in the courts ever slnoe, was resentenced l?y Judge Bower at Isabella yesterday, and January 6th was the day fixed for the execution.

Crooms has bad able counsel and his case has been stubbornly fougbt. He was sentenoed to hang when first tried, but his case was carried to the Supreme Court. 'I'he Supreme Court sustai ned the court below, and Crooms bas now been sentenced the second

time by Judge Bower. ,

- Crooms has spent mostof the time of his long imprisonment in tbe Dougherty county jail. Several months ago, however, for BOIDe reason, be was transferred to the Bibb county jail. He was brought to this city by Sheriff Cox this morning, and is now ironed and in a, cell in the Douaherty county jai1. He is to be kept here until the time for his execution arr-ives.

The. last hope for In m seems to have been dispelled, and nothing tbat his lawyer can do for him now wi II probably save bis life or stave off his execution. The han~ing will take place at Isabella on FrIday, January 6.

Gen. 1YIorgnn'8 Vo,~ Dead.

One of Gen. Mogans' cows gave up

on the ghost yesterday about noon after sueffring for some time wi th a severe it-

he case of colic.

Medfcal aid was extended in 'her last

as -

n moments, but no human power could

be save the unfortu-nate creature from the ttd grim destroyer, so _ she gracefully succumbed to the inevitable.

~.~ Coroner Grant Wynn was on the

ground, but no jury was summoned, as n there were two good witnesses to the fact that the death was in the

1- of things. So no inquest was n · Had a jury been em anell d and

n in, the verdict wonld ro a Iy
