HOMICIDE IN POLK COUNTY—An unfortunate drunken broil, in which two young men, George Mobley and Frank McMeekin, were engaged last Friday evening, resulted in the shooting of McMeekin by Mobley, from the effects of which he died the next day.  The shooting was witnessed by Mr. and Mrs. T. G. W. McMeekin, the father and mother of the unfortunate young man.  The parties were perfectly friendly when the difficulty began, and the parents of McMeekin had been dining with those of Mobley that day, and were on their return home when they encountered them on the road side, and upon stopping to prevail upon their son to go home with them Mobley sprang into the woods and deliberately shot his victim down, and then made several efforts to shoot the father.  Mobley escaped that night by fleeing to Alabama.  Parties are now in pursuit, and it is hoped that he will be brought to justice.—Rome Courier.
