The second issue of the Bernice Home Journal carries at its masthead “volume, number 43”. Evidently this is misleading. The first issue of the Journal was published about March 6th in Ruston, so we are informed; and how it can record “number 43” after its second issue is something we cannot understand. Does it mean that 43 copies of the paper have actually been published?

The board of pardons for Louisiana has recommended the pardon of James Defee, who was convicted of murder without capital punishment, in Union Parish in 1894, and sentenced to the penitentiary for a term of 12 years. This winds up the chapter, so far as the penitentiary is concerned, in the shooting resulting in the death of Mr. Joe Platt and the serious wounding of his father-in-law. For this affray, six persons, all white men, were sent to the pen. The two Tisdales died while serving their sentence; Williamson and Pardue were pardoned after a short term at Baton Rouge; later P. G. Defee was also pardoned, and now the board has recommended the pardon of Jas. Defee.   See A Genuine Shootout.

Another railroad is projected through Farmerville. The promoters of this enterprise contemplate construction a line from Little Rock, Ark., to the Gulf. Representatives of this project say they will visit Farmerville soon-possibly early next week-to look into the situation here. If matters appear favorable they propose to start active work in a short time and have trains running into our town by the end of the present year. While our chances are now bright for the early construction of the proposed McShane road, still if one railroad is a good thing for Farmerville, two roads will be much better, so every possible inducement should be offered the promoters of both enterprises.
