A DANGEROUS PRECEDENT.
The Accepting of a Plea of Guilty c
To the Editor of The News an
Herald: The June term of cour
was quite !hort as all thinkin
farmers thought it should be
but in that short court a prece
ient was established, which, eve:
if it be a custom fully guarantee<
by statute, is it very dangerou
one to establish for n people sit
nated as we are in South Caro
lina. Here was a man arraigne<
for the murder of his fellow mai
and public sentiment held ou
the impression that this was ;
case of cold-blooded murde
without any provocation on th
part of the slain man. It waf
also believed that the State coul<
make out a full indictment fo
murder in the first degree. I
that be so, why should the pie
of manslaughter be accepted an<
the small sentence of five year
be put on the guilty party
While this was an instance o
"negro kill negro,"2 yet we shoul<
be taught by all 'criminal court
that even justice is only mnete<
out in this jurisdiction. Sup
nose another similar murder b,
perpetrated on one of the bes
citizens. Has not the crimina
before the said act is perpetrate<
Ifull reason to believe what hi:
punishment will be, and has h
not the right to believe that hi
case should come under the sam
kind of a tribunal? Is not suc]
Ia precedent as this in part a jus
Stification for Judge Lynch ti

criminal courts? A Citizen.
