A xmME of the legislati de

OscA Booz was hazel upon
his eatrance to West Point. Two
years later he died. An investi
gation is now being held to de
termine whether there was any
connect:on between the hazing
and the death. The college au
thorities admit that hazing is
still practiced at West Point.
They also claim that they can
not stop it. The experience of
hundreds of other institutions,
both larger and smaller, shows
that they could if they. wo
be con' .
anything else. There is no
anydne from redistricting on
a 'asis of contiguous territory.
The present legislature would
memorialize itself by the passage
of a bill providing for the redis
tricting of the State.

These two articles are highly '
appreciated and are highly vala
able. They suggest to us hos- g
fatour traie historians are pass
ing way.How important there
fore, that they make good use of e4
the fleeting time by giving txe il
treasures from their richly sto.ed &
memories for the present and a
future generations. All suc'i fr
contributions will be most highly
welcomed by us and we trust that
our old soldiers whom we love so
well to honor will take advantage ID
of every opportunity to give us a
higher appreciation of the great- .
ness of their valor, the usefulness cc
of their devotion, and the justness (o

The three men charged with
the murder of William Ros
borough are, whatever may have
been their past records, charged
with a crime the eiormity of
which and the circumstances sur
rounding it demand that they be
kept in the closest confinemeni
until a jury of twelve of their
peers shall determine whether
ttey are or any one of them is
gruIlty. Under the present condi
tions we seriously doubt whether
any circuit judge would release
any one of them on bail, even if
a very large and safe bond could
be secured. We are at a com
plete loss, therefore, to under
stand how it is that the sheriff of
Fairfield County allows one of
these criminals to act as a trusty
at tie jail and to have the free
dom of the streets by day. The
f'ct that the party in question is
not thought to be guilty by the
officer counts for naught in miti
gation of punishment. The sup
position of one man against the
investigation of twelve men after
d:ys of persistent work is a very
TiE latest development in the
Rosborough case that has already
attracted so much attention is
the petition that will be present
ed to the governor by a commit
tee of colored citizens protesting
against one of the accused being
a trusty at the jail. We are noi
surprised at this natural ontcome
for from the very time the mur
der was committed, the negroes
-especially the leaders among
them-have shown a determina
tion that the guilty parties be
brought to justice and have given
every assistance possible in fer
reting out the crime. Their in
dignation is a righteous one and
h'ghly commendable. The crimi
nal in question has had no righi
under the sun to the privileges
enjoyed. The circumstances de
mand as we have said before thai
all three be kept in the closesi
confinement. Public- sentimeni

Other counties have realized thi:
fact and have taken the necessar3
steps to remove their jails to mort
private places. In fact, it is a
matter of history that Fairfieli
once took the initiatory steps to
wards this greatly desired end
Second, it is a disgrace to a town
to have the county jail at the
most important junction of its
two principal streets. Such an
important location should be oc
eupied by some other kind of
building or go unoccupied. We
well remember our complete sur
prise on finding such a state of
dfftrs when we first arrived in
~own, and this is the impression
nade upon all visitors.
Still anothe-r reason is that the
resent jail is not sufficiently
tdapted to the county's unprece
lented progress in criminality.
Ye are told that at the present
ime there are not sufficient quar
ers to confine prisoners in sep
trate cells far enough apart for
hem not to have communication
rith one another, if circumstances
temand that they be so kept.
'his should not so be.

2terests of town and county de
