Governor M. B. McSween
ey has laid aside the robes of
office and retired to private
life. In return for the con
fidence reposed in him he has
given the people honest and
faithful service-an eminent
ly satisfactory administration.
|Go vernor D.C. Heywayd is
'now at the helm of the Ship
of State and it is safe to say
that he will rule over our peo
ple wisely and justly, main
taining the high standard set
by hfs predecessor.
That there are yet brave
menieft who will speak their
.minds plainly is shown by the
following from the Charleston
Post: 44When they refer to
the slayer of N. G. Gonzales
outside newspapers will please
observe that he is not an offi
cial of South Carolina. The
misfortune.and disgrace of his
elevation to the Lieutenant
Governorship was ended yes
terday and a gentleman and a
^ood citizen now holds the
NORTH CAROLINA JUSTICE.
On last Thursday James
Wilcox, white, of a promin
ent family, charged with kill
ing Miss Nellie Cropsey, was
tried at Hertford, N. C., and
was convicted of murder in
the second degree on purely
circumstantial evidence and
was given the maximum sen
tence, 30years imprisonment.
We risc to offer an amend
ment to our constitution mak
ing it mandatory that a "tar
heel" jury be imported when
a white man is to be tried for
murder in South Carolina so
that justice may be done to
the dead as well as the living.
"CRY ALOUD AND SPARE NOT"
In view o? the recent con
spicuous and flagrant viola
tion of the law prohibiting thc
carrying of pistols by the
second executive and first leg
islative officer of the state it
behooves every law abiding
^pare not" in their condem
nation of the pistol carrying
nuisance, thereby aiding in
creating a public sentiment
that will demand the enforce
ment of thc law in every case
of violation. Until this sen
time nt i s* created.the la tv will
not be enforced and until the
law is enforced the evil will
KILLING of N. G. GONZALES.
From the Baptist Courier.
It is Almost impossible to write
in a elm, dispassionate manner of
the killing of Mr. N. G Gonzales
in Columbia last week by Lieuten
ant Governor Tillman. It was BO
unexpected, apparently so uncall
ed lor, evidently so premeditated
and cartifuily arranged, taking
place in the bright light of day,
on themaiu public thoroughfare,
in the presence of parsing ladies,
