CHESTER VS. ROCK HILL.
[1r. Dixon Presents Arguments for
Chester as the Proper Place for the
Location of the new Federal Court.
Mr. Editor-Please permit a
few remarks in regard to H. R.
Bill 9005 now before congress and
the desirability of having a Fed
eral court at Chester, S. C., as
provided by the bill and in regard
to which an effort has been made
to replace Chester by inserting
Rock Hill. The necessity for
legislation, dividing the State of
South Carolina into two federal
judicial districts; should be ap
parent for the following reasons:
The almost unprecedent growth
in population and industrial
wealth of the northern portion
of the State within the last fifteen
years has resulted in bringing
about a corresponding increase in
litigation, which is subject to the
intervention and control in a great
measure by the federal courts.
Take, for instance, the great com
mon carriers. These are in the
main created and organized as
corporate bodies under the laws
of other states. Many of the mills
are likewise foreign corporations.
Lately have come into our midst
great water and electrical power
companies, some o' them being
foreign corporations.. Again, there
are the telegraph, telephone and
express companies, all having
charters foreign to our State.
Still, there are the great insur
ance (life and fire) companies,
created and existing under and by
virtue of laws of other states and
countries than our own. Now,
when litigation arisiis, where the
interests of the enumerated com
panies above are concerned to the
extent of an amorunt over two
thousand dollars, these foreign
corporation, by bond and peti.
tion, have ordinarily the power to
remove the cause into the United
States circuit cour:;, and in the
past they hare invariably elected
and pursued this policy. The
citizen of the Stats is rexed by
delay and taxed for the expense
of the same and often abandons a
meritorious cause rather than en
dure the system. Often he is un
able to do 'so. The great indus
trial advancement of the Pied
mnont section goes on unabated,
its industries are being added to
almost daily, it is growing more
populos6 every ye.ar; and as much
as we hara sugered fr.opa the fact
of an inadequacy of facility 'n
the dispensation of justice
through the federal courts, much
as we have had to endure having
motions made and papers filed,
and process served at, in, and
through offices in Charleston (an
experience Union has and is now
anegoing), it would appear that
the freguescy .of the thing must
be greatly mnultipliad in tb ;;a
future, unless we can secure rehlit
by the successful passage of the
present bill now pending before
As another reason for such leg
islaion, the northern counties of
the Stata ;re distilling grounds
of th.e moonshiners. Practically
all the violations of the internal
reveue laws take place in our
Piedmont section. The United
States government has about quit
?rosecutin g offenders for retailing
lquor, shelving the punishment
of such offenders upon the State
aid ;nunicipal cburts. The other
aasof thp court (federal), are
so umerogjs, sgeh as illipit distil
ling and illicit transporting, ,.ases
of violation of postal laws and
forgery and counterfeiting cases,
that the United States court can't
find the time in the congested con
dition of its criminal dockets to
try these small cases. Did we
have another district it might be
So taking all of the above into
consideration, it is strikingly ap
parent that we need another fed
eral district and another foderal
judge for South Carolina for the
proper and expeditious trial of
causes &nd a prompt and unprej
udiced dispensation of justice.
We do not wish this bill to fail
of patronage, as it did in the last
congress, on account of the local
fight made between different towns
aspiring for the honor of having
the court to be held in such par
ticular towns. and any man who
acts in such senise can have his
patriotism measured in a very
small half bushel.
De:.egations f:omn South Caro
lina have been to Washington
nd appeared before the house
judiciary ecomnittee before whom
the bill is pending. The argu
ments in the interest of having
the court to meet at Chester were
made by Solicito~r J. K. Henry,
Mayor 1R. E. Wylie of Lancaster,
Mayor liardin of Chester and
. W. Dixon of Wiunsboro
o.k Hill was represented by
Prof. D. B. Johnson, J. B. John
son . G. Anderson and I. B.
Dunlap. The counties directly
interested in the situs of this
particular court are Cherokee,
Union, Fairfield, Chester, York
and Lancaster. It cannot be
successfully disputed, and we be
lieve the committee were con
vinced that in those points neces
sary for the accommodation of
the court and the parties in at
tendance thereon, Chester is the
equal of Rock Hill and what now
remains to decide the matter be
tween the two towns is the fact
of centrality of situation as re
spects the territory made up of
the above enumerated counties,
and accessibility as to railroads
or other modes of common cou
veyance. Any one interested
should procure a map of the
State. Take as a radius the dis
tance from Chester to Winnsboro,
a distance of twenty-seven miles.
Take Chester as the centre and
swing this radius around. It
will be found to cover five-sixth
of Fairfield, the whole of Union,
three-quarters of Cherokee and
nearly all of Lancaster, nine
tenths of York and all of Chester.
Take the same radius with Rock
Hill as a centre and use in the
same way and you will not brush
either Fairfield, Union or scabely
Cherokee. Should the court be
held at Chester, most of the peo
ple in the proposed territory
could attend court in buggies.
Again observing the railroad,
Rock Hill has only two and
Chester has four.
The committee were very much
impressed by these facts disclosed
in a very able way by Solicitor
Henry, Mayor Wylie and Mayoz
Hardin, whose remarks, though
brief, were bold and scintilating
with common sense and wisdom.
Rock Hill had but one argument
"The Glory of Rock fill, to
which we all said and say yet
'Amen'". But if that were to be
the determining force in the mat
ter why not Union.
There were petitions from all
the counties mentioned for the
court to be held at Chester ex
cept tbe county of York, and we
believe that unles- Congressman
Finley uses his influence with the
members of the committee and
members of congress against
Chester that the court will be
held there. Its fate, the bill, is
largely in his hands. We think
that he will act wisely and patri
tically in the mattEr, and in tbe
light of the facts lierein expressed,
the people of these counties
should have cause for congratui
tatons and the advooatesi of
Chester are confident and hopeful.
