The Recent Robberies

For the past year there seems to have been in this county an

organized band of petty thieves with headquarters in this city.

All efforts have been made to discover who they were, but of

no avail till last Sunday, when WILLIAM CRUMLEY, JACK MAPLES

Jr., JACK MAPLES Sr., and JAMES MAPLES were arrested, charged

with robbing Mr. JAMES BATTS tan-yard. Several sides of leather

were found at JACK MAPLES house. CRUMLEY it seems told the whole

affair, stating that he always stood guard with a shot gun in

hand ready to kill any man who approached while the others did

the robbing. CRUMLEY admits having robbed HAM CARSON's blacksmith

shop, and also shooting at Mr. WHITE two miles east of town

while stealing Mr. WHITE's watermelons. Mr. WHITE it seems heard

them in his field and went out on them, and they shot at him.

There has been divers other robberies of spring houses and

gardens going on all summer in and around through the county

near town, and it is supposed that the same gang has been doing

all of it.

The immediate cause of the arrests were that on Saturday night

the wagon cover and a carpet in Mr.T C DICKEY's wagon were

stolen, and on Sunday night Mr. DICKEY got a search warrant

and searched MAPLES and CRUMLEY's bedrooms, where they found

a churn and some tools belonging to HAM CARSON. They failed

to find Mr. DICKEY's goods, but were arrested all the parties

at once and brought them into town Sunday evening and guarded

ill Monday morning when the grand jury found true bill against

them, and failing on bond they were all sent to jail. On Tuesday

CRUMLEY had a trial in circuit court and was sentenced to the

penitentiary for five years. This will be the second term he

has served in that institution. A J MAPLES Sr., A J MAPLES Jr.,

and JAS. MAPLES had their trial continued till next term of

the court.

institution did well in choosing him to fill the vacancy caused

in every respect -  genial, clever, and accommodating, and we

venture to say the Bank will lose none of its popularity by

having him to preside over it.
