THE WEBER MATTER.
Superintendent Hayfield's Ofil
STATE OP SOUTH CAROLINA,
OFFICE OF STATE SUP'T OF ED'C'N.
COLUMBIA, S. C., Feb. 13, '94.
Gov. B. R. Tillman, Columbia, S. C.
DEAR SIR : Under the law county
school commissioners are required
to report to the State Superinten
dent of Education by the 1st day
of October of each year, among
other things the amount of money
collected and expended for schools
during the year.
On the 3rd day of October, 1393,
John L. Weber, as school commis
sioner for Charleston County' filed
his annual report with me, which
showed expenditures for the year
to be in excess of the receipts.
Being dissatiaSed with the report
I souhht an explanation. Mr. We
ber had resigned and left the State
to accept a position in Trinity Col
lege, located at Durham, N. C., and
F. Horton Colcock had been ap
pointed by you as his successor.
Mr. Colcock was unable! from the
records in his office, to explain the
discrepancy. I, therefore, prepared
blanks and sent them to the school
trustees of that county for the
purpose of obtaining the desired
information. In making up these
reports a discrepancy was discover
ed in one of the school warranta.
I have inado a personal exami
nation of the school commission
er's office and find that this parti
cular warrant has been raised from
$7.65 to $97.65 by inserting the
figure 9 in the margin in front of j
the figure 6, and writing the word
ninety in front of the word seven
in the body of the warrant. I
also find other warrants that have
been raised and others that were
issued for labor not performed,
and for school supplies and furni
ture that were not furnished.
The warrant for $7.65, raised to
$97.95, above referred to, is made
payable to "Isaac Hammond or or
der." The correctness of the claim
is sworn to by him before the
chairman of the board of school
trustees issuing it, aud both of them
say the warrant was issued for $7.
65 and that was the amount ac
tually due. Isaac Hammond is a
merchant of good financial stan
ding and reputation, and engaged
in business in Broad street, in the
City of Charleston. He says that j
he turned the claim over to Mr.
Weber to be countersigned by him
as school commissioner and that
Mr. Weber brought him $7.65 iii
cash, the amount due him. The
warrant was certainly raised before
it was presented to the county
treasurer. Geo. H. Walter, fo*" pay
ment, for it was paid by him with
a check drawn in favor of '"Isaac
Hammond or order" for $97.95.
The check was presented to and
paid by the Charleston Bank. Isaac
Hammond's name being endorsed
on the back of the check. The
teller of tho bank, who paid the
money, endorsed on the back of
the check in blue pencil that he
had paid it to John L. Weber.
Mr. Hammond says that the en
dorsement of his name on the back
of the check is a forgery, and the
expert of the bank say it is not
his signature. The changes in the j
warrant appear to be in the hand
writing of Mr. Weber. There was
issued payable to Isaac Hammond
or order" another school warrant
for $6, which was raised to $8.50*
This warrant took very much the
same cause as the one above refer
red to and the changes in it appear |
to be in Mr. Weber's hand.
The report then states that in
1892 Mr. Weber received $355 for |
the purpose ?f-holding joint teach
er's institutes for Charleston, Ber
kely and Colleton Counties, and
that he expended but $215 fori
these purposes, leaving $140 in his
hands unaccounted for.
That in 1893 another such insti
tute was held, for the purposes of
which Mr. Weber received $315
and expended only $230, leaving
$85 unaccounted for.
Mr. Weber ran an account with
Messes Walker, Evans & Cogswell,
on which he had charged the arti
cles he purchased for his own pri
vate use, also those he purchased J
for h is own "use as school com-|
missioner, and also those he pur
chased for the use of the public
school of his country. On April 9,
1893, he owed ou this account for
all purchases $100 50, and on the
same day the account was credited
with $66.50. This credit of $66.50
was a school warrant issued to
Walker, Evans & Cogswell origi
nally for $6, but raised to $96.50.
The changes appeared to be it Mr*
Weber's hand. Walker'Ev :ns &
Cogswell collected the money.
Purchases were continved, and on
April 20, 1892, had increased $8.01,
makiug the whole amount $108.51.
On the same day, April 20, 1892, a
second school warrant f >r $86.25
was issued to them and the account
of the warrant they paying Weber
$47.24 cash, the difference between
the amount of the two warrants! l
and tho amount of tho accou^
balancing the account. Thi
rant was not raised, but waa
for more than the amount c
purchase by reason of a Q
in the bill rendered.
Parchases were continued,!
November 15. 1892, Weber
$25.92 and on that day his ac
was cr?diter! with $85, the ai

which they received the benefit
$84.75. From the $289.13 ti
the $84.75 and there is left $264

It is, perhaps, but proper
me to say in this connection tl
Walker, Evans & Cogswell do
very large business, and that th
transactions occurred in the or
nary^-un of their business, a
that they are wholly innocent
any wrong intention or com
dealing, having had confidence
Mr. Weber's honesty.

Weber's hand, and it also appears
that he collected, the warrants af
ter they had been raised, the three

treasurer in one check, No 310,

issued to Henry Wilson for $6 for I
repairs on a school house by the
trustees of School District No. 4,
and in September, 1894, the trus
tees of the ?ame district issued to
him a warrant for $48.75 for repairs
to school houses and furniture.

warrants appear to have been
written by Mr. Weber. There are
only two schools in this distriot.

This exposure was due to Super

NOTICE TO INVENTORS.
There was never a time in the his
tory of our country when the demand
for inventions and improvements in
the arts and sciences generally was so
great as now. The conveniences of
mankind in the factory and work
shop, the household, on the farm, and
in official life, require continual ac
cessions to the appurtenances and
implements of each in order to save
labor, time, and expense. The political
change in the administration of the
government does not affect the progress
of the American inventor, wi o being
on the alert' and ready to perceive the
existing deficiencies, does not permit
the affairs of government to deter bim
from quickly conceiving the remedy to
overcome existingdiscrepencies. Too
great care cannot be exercised in choos |
nga competent and skillfully attor
ney to prepare and prosecute an ap-1
plication for patent. Valuable intersts
have been lost and destroyed in in
numerable instances by the employ
ment of incompetent counsel, and
especially is this advice applicable to
those who adopt the "No patent, no
pay" system. Inventors who entrust
their business to this class of attorneys
do so at imminent risk, as the breadth
and strength of the patent is never
considered in view of a quick endeavor |
to get an allowance and obtain thr
fee then due. THE PRESS CLAIMS
