confirmation to the Supreme Court is a
happy solution by the President of a

the position he is chosen to fill, being

sound, legal teaming. The
South should rejoice in his selection,
giving as it does representation of the

from the fact that it in-1

There was ab*ut twenty-two or
twenty-three criminal cases in Court
last week. Out of this entire number
only one conviction was secured.
Several were continued, several nol
prossed, and there was no bill found
in two or three cas";s, and three plead
guilty. This mean something. IIow
is imhatput of a, whole week's work
only one conviction arises, and the
finding in each and every case where
an acquittal was the result seemed to
create 110 surprise on the public mind?
We could hear expressions indicative
?f an acquittal in a good many ca?es
even before Court. There is bound t?
be a fault somewhere. And if the
public are not expecting a conviction
even before Court it musi mean that
the testimony won't warrant a conviction.
And right here we venture
the suggestion that trial justices look
more closely into the preparation of
cases before they send them to the

MR. GLADDEN' TO MR. HALL.
"A Litt'c More Cider Tuo."
Mr. Editor: In rep It to Mr. W. S.
Hairs piece in your paper of the 14th,
I would say that I expected to stay out
of the farce, as W. S. Hall calls ir, as
it was only some small malice amongst
the young men and clerks of our
neighborhood (as I thought.) but as
the old grey heads, and others, are at
the head of it, I must say something
in defence. It is nothing but spite
from beginning to end. The report
that we were selling cider is correct,
but the report that we were selling
cider with alcohal in it, or cider that
would "make drunk'- is untrue. We
were selling cider purchashed from a

rCilUUiC UUU&tJ ?im luu it m.k~
ranty that it had been analyzed and
did not come under the statute preventing
the sale of intoxicating beverages
in South Carolina. The matter
has been before Trial Justice Jones
and iiolprossed. Xow, Mr. W. S. Hall
says you give an account of the trial
of Mr. James A. Gladden before Tria.
Justice Jones for selling intoxicatingcider.
Ja6. A. Gladden never has
been tried, and I doirt see how you
could try a man without a case. Mr.
IIa.ll seems to think that there hai been
injustice done to Mr. Will Barber, but
I don't think s?. The man argued his
own case and was not interfered with
in the examination of his witneises.
After the examination of all the wit
nesses was over, I said to him, "the
next time you go to act Tillman spy
you fix up rour case a little better."
I beg Mr.' Barber's pardon, for calling
him a spy, as it seems that some
others have done the spying and he has
d?ne the reporting for them. 1 have
nothing against Mr. Will Barber. I
have always been a true friend to the
family, and I think if there is a Christian
and a gentleman in Chester County,
his fathei- is one. I would not ?ay or
do anything to injure one of his children
without a cause. I think there
is nothing lower down and meaner
than to pick up every little report that

especially, and report it in the papers

that it is more than the good people of
this neighborhood can stand to allow
the guilty to pass. Does the State witnesses
or trial justice say that any one
is guilty ?n the preliminary? Is a
man guilty because r?u and your followerssavso?
I w#uld say no. Mr.
W. S. Ila'll goes on and says Mr. James
Gladden will not deny this, that and
the other. Why did he not come to
the trial, as he calls it, and bring hi3
witnesses with him and prove those
things and not leave it to a mare boy.
If he was too timid to come, I think
he ought to keep his mouth shut now,
and not say "didn't we kill the bear",
after he had been killed. Mr. W. S.
Hall knows exactly where I atand and
he may think that lie can force me
into the line with him to do his bidding,
but he will be very much mistaken.
I am one of the old true and
tried straightout Democrats. I heard
there was some drunkenness or drinking
in the neighborhood on Christms:.
day, and I also heard that some of
them came to our store drinking on
. i,nf y hf>arrl from them
VUI IQLLLiCfco vie* y i ?-rw*v A MV??>
on Tuesday and there was no drunkeu;iess.
The liquor furnished by the
dispensary had given ?ut and they had
nothing but cider. I never saw a man
d -unk on that cider in my life, and it
has been proven by the State witnesses
it will not make drunk.
Now, Mr. W. S. Hall, I am not in
my dotage yet, and if I was I would
not call 011 you to manage my business
for me; so I will ask you and your
followers very politely not to bother
my business "any more, and if that
will not do, I will order you, and if
that don't do, I will make you.
Will Barber could tell if he would
where s#me of the liquor came from
that caused the drunkenness at the
mill. I think he saw a fight caused
from dispensary liquor before they
went to Gladden's. There was liquor
at different places in the neighborhood
and all that were drunk at the mill
and store went there drunk, yet Gladden's
cider made them drunk. Better
lock your cider and water up for fear
some'one comes and drinks after he is
drunk and it will be blamed on y9ur
water or cider.
I think this is one of the most ma
* i- ? J?
licious pieces ever was written num
any neighborhood, after the indictment
had been proven to be false
from beginning to end, by all of the
State witnesses, except by the men
named in the report of the preliminary.
For #ne mau to get up and press in
two others and say the trial was a
farce, }ast as well say they all swore
lies, trial justice and all, and we are
the best and only truthful men in the
community. Don't right me over my
son's (Jas! A. Gladdon's) shoulders';
came straight forward, for you know
all the time that my son was doing
business for me and did as I told him.
There are too many StfOi'TgQsters
times getting up and picking up every
little slanderous thing they can against
men just in order that their names
may be seen in public print.
Mr. Ilall is attempting to make it
appear that my son was guilty of this
charge, but that the trial justice was
charitable enoujh to let it pass as a
mere warning; therefore he calls it a
farce. Does he mean to say Trial
Justice .Tones, upon whom alone the
case depended, (for there was nojury)
would forget his oath of office so far
as not to punish the guilty, but wouici
all*w "him to pose as the innocent"
even to the disappointment of the best
men of the community? Does not Mr. Hall
know that if Mr. Jones wonkl pervert
the purposes of his court, and should
violate his solemn oath of office, as
Mr. Hail's charge implies that his commission
would be revoked? Or now
does not Mr. Hall know that Mr.
Jones discharged his duty juithfully
and fearlessly? If so, why d?es he
make the charge. If it had net been
proven undoubtedly, by reliable witnesses,
that there was no cause for a
trial, this Justice would never have
rendered a false verdict, as a mere
Now I have said nothing in my communication
but what any farmer or
plough boy can underhand, and if
any of them should happen to find
their name signed to it, by any hook
or crook, they would know what they
were signing. Now, Mr. Hall, I am
done and will not pay any attention to
your slanderous pieces in public print.
A word to the unwise is sufficient.

In my sweet and dreaml^s rest;

And will you touch'my ru'.d respou^eless

j That wi!l never smile again?
: When raj weary form i? iesting
j Beneath the falling leaves,
; And the flowers softly swaying
; In the gentle evening breeze.

While the night winds sigh uound me
And the sta s their vigil k-:ep?
In the silence and the darkness
As the shadows come and got(

For I would net know.
My ears would be deaf to all harsh
And my soul will be free from pain
And never a scornful glance caa I see
To wound my heart again.
For He who watches the sparrows fall
Has marked my resting place,
And 1 shall sleep on till lie bid's me rise
To look in His blessed face.
It is nothing to me if the world forgets
If Christ remea-bers still,
For I know One watchcs beside me

My darling, it grieves me to die and
