The Junction City Democrat says the officers of Union Parish ought to pay “their respects” to a “blind tiger” that is “roaming” in the brush near Junction. We are glad to state that the officials of Union Parish are not at all “afeard” of even such a dangerous animal as a blind tiger, and they will go right square after him if the good people of Junction will put them on this trail with the proper affidavit and warrant. Say, Brother Dismukes, had you ever thought about it, that the officers of the law are practically powerless to deal with criminals, especially the blind tiger operator, without the aid and assistance of the good people of the community? The grand jury will soon be in session; send to that body the names of good and reliable witnesses who can put the officers on old tige’s trail, and if they don’t “tree him”, they will most.

Sheriff C. H. Murphy returned from Wichita, Kansas, last Thursday, having in custody the negro Green Heard, who stands indicted for killing Emanuel Hall in Union Parish in December 1900. Mr. Murphy located Hall about Wichita, and he sent the police officers there a description of the fugitive, asking them to arrest him. After a few hours search they nabbed Green, and he frankly admitted that hew was the person wanted. The chief of police then induced Green to sign a telegram to Sheriff Murphy stating that he would return to Louisiana without a requisition. The fugitive said that he intended to return to Union Parish anyway and stand trial; that he was only waiting to get the necessary money to pay his expenses. However, it looks like he had gone a long ways in the opposite direction. Suffice it to say that Sheriff Murphy advanced the necessary funds to bring him home, and he is now ready for trial.
