The Court of Common Pleas
e for Pickens county convened on
t Monday morning with Judge S.
W. G. Shipp, Solicitor Bonham
and all the court officials in their
places. At the appointed time
the stentorian '0. Yez! 0, Yez!'
0 of court crier P. A. Porter was
- heard calling the jurors, defend
s ants and witnesses to hustle to
s their places, and Judge Shipp
put the machinery of the court
e in motion. His charge to the
grand jury was plain, concise
and to the point. A synopsis of
the charge is as follows:
JUDGE SHIPP'S CHARGE.
I am glad at the beginning of
a my career as Circuit Judge to
have the privilege of presiding
at this term of the court. When
I was a boy I lived in the up
country. Years ago the hills in
this section were gashed and
torn with great gullies and
washed by the rains. Now the
fields have been restored and
I protected by a splendid system
. of terracing and produces as
e well as any land in the state.:
- I understand it is a common oc
r currence to gather a bale of cot
e ton from one acre This is a fine
- country with a fertile soil and a
s climate unsurpassed. You peo
E ple to be congratulated. This
s too, is a law-abiding community
I The violations of law are on a
a minor scale. For this the coun
> ty and the state are to be con
a gratulated. The office of Grand
Juror is a highly important one.
In a sense you have more power
than the court, No one can be
tried without you presentment.
Note carefully the import of
your oath. Observe and keep it
in its broadest sense. None but
a good man can observe an oath
like that. You are to leave none
f unpresented through fear or fa
ver. It may become your duty
to present your best friend. But
no one must be presented from
envy or malice. Enmity must
never be your guide. It is a
fearful thing to be clothed with
power, it is so liable to be mis
used or abused. Your oath isi
Look to the observance of law
thirouighout the county. See
e that the officers are faithful in
the performance of their duties.
The office of Magistrate is an
important one. Are your Mag
istrates faithful and efficient?
1- They are under your su
.e pervision. There are many
f crimes that do not affect individ
uals directly, so they might go
y unpunished, but such may be
r- very hurtful to the community.
d Such things should have the es
d pecial attention of the members
h of your body.
The following is the court's
il record up to Wednesday noon,
