Oa., April o'clock this afternoon Mr. Joseph Hanserd, one of the most popular men ot Colum- bus, was drowned in the river. Some time ugo Jiumber of youag gentlemen of the city formed a boat club aud built a new boathouse on the bank ol the river. between the upper dam and the Eagle and Phenix dam, and between which there Is a fine surface of water for rowing. There is about half a mile between the two dams, and there is seldom ever a pleasant afternoon when the river at this point is not dotted with row boats, the yaung gentlemen frequently taking the ladies out for a boat ride. This afternoon there was quite a nuuiher of boats on the river; Mr. Albert Mason and Mr. Joseph Hanserd, in one of these boats. By some means they approached too near the upper dam. After reachingacertaiu point the boat became unmanageable in the whirling current and was drawn to where the water of tbe falls broke off the bow of the boat and cap- sized it. Then here a great struggle for life. The exciting scene was witnessed by scores' of people who stood upon the river banks. Fortunately Mr. Hamilton Mason and another young man were in a boat which was near enough to render assistance. They succeeded in rescuing Albert Mason, but Joe Hanserd was drowned. 80011 an immense crowd gath- ered on tbe river bank and great excitement prevailed. Mr. Hanserd belonged to one of ttie best families of Columbia and waa very popular. He was a son of the late Joseph Hanserd, a prominent citizen, and a grandson of General Bethune. His mother is prostrated with grief. The body has not been recovered AFFRAY IN MONROE COUNTY. Mr. J. T. Dillard fehot Down by Franlt Wil- son. FORSVTH, Ga., April moruing about 8 o'clock, as Mr. J. T. Diltard and several other gentlemen were preparing to leave the river at Juliette, where they had been fishing Frank Wilson, a noted character in that section, come up to where they were and engaged in coniersation with them. 8on was drinking and made himself very dis- agreeable, and at last called MrTDillard liar, when Dillard struck Win. They were part- ed, aud Wilson left. Ifothing more was thought of it, and an hour later, as the crowd was coming home, Mr. Dillard was walking, while tlio rest of the party were riding in the wagon When opposite Wilson's house, Wilson called to his wife to bring him his gun and walked in the road in front of the wagon aud around on tbe side where Diliard waa. Seeing him com- ing, Dillard dodged behind tho wagon and Wilson fired, fracturing the bone of the left thigh. As Dillard fell, he remarked; "Frank, you have ruined me." Wil5on replied: and shot him again through the hand and thigh. Dr. Kudisill was called at oi.ce and decided to amputate, the limb, and this evening, assisted by Tur- ner Ponder, amputated it. Wilson was arrested and placed 111 jail. Mr. Dillard is a poor man. but honest and industrious; has nine children, all girts, wliiounjj wlrite children in the cure and custody of a negro family near by. The story runs that some time since an old negro woman in the vicinity of the old burnt factory brought three white children out and put them under the care of a family ot her own color. Two of the children were about two years old and the third was about a month old. all point to the fact that the children were of good birth, although it is not known at all where they came from. A trunk containing fine clothes and several things suitable for wearing apparel was left with the negro family. Investigation is being made to un- ravel the mystery, and it may be cleared up. The old negro who brought the children to the negro family has mysteriously disappeared. SUICIDE OF A Simon Levy Horphiue at Sparta and SPARTA, Ga., April a salesman for Nussbaum Co., of Ma- con, committed suicide at Drummers' home here today by taking morphine. Efforts to relieve him were altogether unsuccessful. No cause is known Cor the act. He was about forty years old, and leaves a large family in Macon._____ PROHIBITION IN KLBKRT. THEY WANT Tflfe ROAD. in KanMwt About Midland There. ATHENS, April section of Georgia is greatly stirred up the prospects of bringing the Midland thfoogh here. Atheus is thoroughly in in the matter, aod will do as much as any city of her size could do to secure the road. Monrow is making an effort to secure the roa-1, aud people of High Shoals have taken active m the matter, which will doubtless bring tha road through that place. The High Manufacturing company do a very large busi- ness, and, having no very good railroad facilities, would be glad to see the road paw through that place. At the last meeting of the board of directors Lhe matter was discnssed ana the sum of B> was subscribed by them toward bringing the road through Hiifh Shoals. It proposed to raise another from the citi- zens of High Shoals, which will no doubt secure the road. This means a great deal for High Shoals, it will place it on a pood rail- road, and will devolope its manufacturing facilities to a very great extent. The water power around High Shoals is very fine, and run several more large factories. It also means much for Athens, and our citizens awaiting auxiomiy to see if the road will through this place.

Site the fence, bnt Bird was equally as and over he wont, too, and succeeded In catching her when they set to aud had a regular kilkenny tight. "When both had cried enough Bird then turn- ed big attention to the negro man whom lia had ordered out nl his house, and who had been a quiet spectator of the scnoua family jar, and commenced stabbing' him The lick cut his wrist, disabling hia right arm and compelling him to drop stick he held, hia only of defence. Having him at Itis mercy. Bird then plunged his knife into hia neck and left him. Bint has been arre-ited. It is thought that there must e been jealousy in the case, hence his called for attack upon the other negro. AS IMPORTANT CASK. A Uttle Kick on the at where.
