The weither continues so unfavora

We call attention to Mr. L. E. Jack

Resolutions of Censure.
At a meeting <Df the citizens of Elm
wood township,,toe following pream
ble and resolutions was unanimously
Whereas, On the night of January
3rd, last, Edmond Weaver, Allen Jones
and Abner Harris did wantonly, and
feloniously break into and rob the
store ar.d Post Office kept by our fel
tow citizen Mr. Jas. T. Ouzts Jr.
Whereas, These aforesaid parties?
after having been duly apprehended'
tried, and convicted of the crime of
burglary and larceny at the recent
term of court held at Edgefield Court
House; and they having been sentenc
ed by Judge Watts to three years im
prisonment at bard labor on the chain
gang; after having had a fair impar
tial trial before a jury composed of
twelve (12) worthy, representative
oitizens, (the overwhelming prepon
derance of the evidence unmistakably
proving their guilt,) and
Whereas, Pending a motion for a
new trial besore the Supreme Court on
tbe flimsy pretext that some of the
panel of jurors were constitutionally
disqualified; and vt hile under sen
tence, they; Abner Harris and Allen
Jones, have by some "Hocuspocus,"
technicality, or subterfuge been bail
ed, and taken from the custody of the
Sheriff, and turned aloose on our com
munity^ perhaps recommit their ne
farious and infamous crimes, in utter
disregard and defiance of the wishes,
interest, and wellfare of the law abid
ing good citizens of Elmwood town
ship, who at no small sacrifice of
time and trouble, have caused these
guilty parties to be apprehended and
brought to the bar of justice, and
there convicted of this flagrant out
rage. Therefore, be it
Kesolved, by the citizens of Elm
wood towdship, in mass meeting as
sembled, that we enter our solemn and
indignant protest against this palpa
pable subversion of the law, and the
ends of justice having been
circumvented resultant from the
course of the bondsmen of
Abner and Allen Jones, which virtu
ally nullifies the verdict of the jury,
the sentence of the court, as well as
the will of the people.
We, therefore deem it our imperative
duty as good law abiding citizens
anxious to stamp out robbery and ;
all other forms of crime, determined to?
preserve and uphold la\? and order irr j
this community, and protect our homes
and property against the midnight
marauder at all hazards. We, there
fore declare and desire to put on re
cord our emphatic disapproval and
condemnation of these aforesaid bonds
men, which we regard as a blow, at, and
extremely detrimental to the good oi>
der, safely, and welfare of our people,
and calculated to encourage dishon
esty amoug the colored race, as well as
to paralyze the strong arm of the law
;n meting out justice and punish
ment to guilty culprits. And we fur
ther more call the attention of these
bopdsmen to the fact: that, our coun
ty has already incured a heavy expense
in trying this case which will be
doubled ita new trial is granted; thus
entailing a hardship upon our tax pa y -

We, desire to say in conclusion that
the thanks of the citizens of Elmwood
township are due, and hereby tender

McG. Simkins for the satisfactory,
able, and vigorous manner with which
they conducted the prosecution of this
case. And also be it further
Resolved, That a copy of these reso
