by Rudolph Erich Raspe, an expatri

translations and Imitations in German

aged 14, unless the higher courts or
the governor interfere. Date for his

Judge Peurifoy in court of general

found him guilty of murder.
A motion for a new trial was over

he passed sentenced.
Faries went on . trial yesterday
morning in the first of four charges
of murder against him growing out
of the f atal wounding on September
6th of four members of the family
of James M. Taylor at Clover where
all of the principals in the case live.

Immediately after the verdict was
read, former Governor Cole L.

for Faries, gave notice that they
would file a motion for a new trial.
This motion was made an hour later
and over-ruled by Judge Peurifoy.
Immediately after overruling the
motion' the judge called Faries before
the bench and pronounced the sen
tence. Standing erect and holding
his black slouch hat in his hand, Fa

the judge while sentence was pro

thing to say as to why sentence
should not be passed, Faries replied
that he had nothing to add to what
his attorneys had said. Judge Peuri

judge in conclusion said to Faries:

Sentencing of Fanes concludes
one of the most notable cases of re
cent years jn South Carolina. It ali
grew out of a children's quarrel in
the little cotton mill village of Clov
er. The children of James M. Taylor
and those of Faries quarreled. There
were several quarrels and finally tile
adult members of the families be
came involved although never reach
ing the point of violence. Finally on
September 6th little John Faries, son
of William, told his father that a
member of the Taylor family had
struck him with a stone. This, ac
cording to Fanes' own story on the
witness stand, so provoked the elder
ly man that he could not stand the
quarrels any longer and geting his
gun he started shooting members of
the Taylor family. He said he really
did not know what he was doing. Six
members of the Taylor family were
found wounded when the smoke
cleared away. Four, Newton,'Leila,
and Fred Taylor, and Claude John
son, their grown cousin, died.
