The war- rants were sworn out before Justice Edmundson on Monday night, and by daylight next morning were promptly executed. The parties arrested were young men of Cottondale and vicinity, and the charges against them are numerous, there being as many as a dozen charges against one, a half a dozen against another and several against others. The charges are disorderly conduct, carrying concealed weapons, abusive language, shooting on public highway, assault, etc. The names of the young men, as far as we could learn are, Ed Thompson, Ed Brown, Elzey Campbell, Yancey Thrower and John Jackson.
