Night Riders' Case .
is Reversed by
Eight Convicted Defendants, Six Sen
tenced to Death, Are Granted
New Trials. ,
JACKSON, Tenn., July S.-The caae of
the eight night rldera, six of whom were
under the death sentence, charged wlih
the murder of Captain Quentln Rankin, at
Walnut Log, on Reelfoot lako, October 19
last, were reveraed by the supreme court
today and were remanded for new trials.
The six men who were under the death
sentence are Garrett Johnson, . alleged
leader of the night rider organisation In
Oblson county; Arthur Clair, Fred Plnoonl
Sam Applewhite, Tld Burton and Roy Ran
some. The other two, Bud Morris and Bob .
Huffman, were convicted of murder In the
second degree. The opinion In the case
was delivered by Special Justice Henry A.
Craft of Memphis.
In reversing the case, the court assigned
two principal reasons. The first' was that;
the grand Jury, which found the Indict
ments agalnat the alleged night riders, was
not selected in a proper manner. The grand
Jury was selected out of a panel named
by Judge J. E. Jones, the trial Judge,
whereas ths law provides the panel should
be chosen by at least three members of
the county court. The state did not allow
the defendants a sufficient . number of
challengex. . , . .
When Jurtlce Craft concluded his opln- '
Ion, a storm of applause broke out In the
court room, but was quickly stilled by
the marshal and his deputies. Tho pris
oners will be taken, back to Union City, and
an effort will be made to obtain their re
lease on ball
