in the entries, among the number be
ing the failure of T. S. Connor, of
Orangeburg, to enter the race for
Governor. He announced lils candi
dacy several weeks ago, hut his
pledge was not Hied. Another an
nounced candidate who failed to en
ter the race was H. ll. Evans, of
Newberry, who a good while ago an
nounced his candidacy for Attorney
General, and who made tho state
ment recently that ho would "run
against Fraser Lyon If ho had to run
from behind jail bars." In this race
an unannounced eui rani was Barney
B. Evans, of Columbia, who has
been in thc race for the ellice before.

TWO CONVICTED OF ?ICROER.
Som? Horrible Detalla Depicted by
Ono Witness.
Florence, June 15.-Tho jury in
tho case of Harry Md no ts)) and John
Williams, charged with tho murder
of little Andrew Jackson, brought in
a verdict of guilty at 11.30 o'clock
to day. The court room was filled
with people, a number of whom were
ladies who had sat throughout the
day listening to thc case. The argu
ments were completed at 10 o'clock,
the judge charged them at 10.30, and
the jury retired immediately, being
in tho room about forty minutes.
There was a slight demonstration
when the jury handed up their ver
dict, but Jude? Shin o nnnll?d-"!t. In ?
second.
The usual motion for new trial was
made.
A number of witnesses wore exam
ined, but perhaps the evidence most
damaging to the defendants was the
following statement of Freddie Uc
Intosh while in jail: j
I was standing on Evans streev j
near Mr. J? rdan's, where John anal
Harry pass d by in the hack, driving'
the gray mare, and saw 11 tl lo An
drew Ja kson jump up behind tho
hack, i saw Harry take bim by tho
arm and got him in tho hack. Harry
told John to drive fast, and they wont
on back to tho stable. I went on
back home and was standing at the
wood pile and I saw Harry hold An
drew and John hit him two hard
licks with a piece of Iron, once on
tho back and once on the side of the
head, and Andrew hollered, "Oh,
Lord, 1 am dead and can't seo my
mamma any moro; 1 would bnvo
been home If those boys had not held
me on that hack and brought, mo
here." This was under tho hack
shod. William Foxworth was there,
i too, and saw everything. He knows
I moro than I do abou' lt, for ho was
hack there with them.
When John hit he fell to tho
ground and Harry jumped on him
and choked him; they then put bim
in the long stable. This was be
tween 7 and 8 o'clock. He stayed
there until the boys came back from
the depot, that night, then John and
Harry brought him in the house and
put him in the colset, near the tele
phone, and covered him up. They
kept him in the closet until tho next
night about 10 o'clock. John and
Harry took him out, of tho closet and
put him in the hack; they were driv
ing "Big John," and carried bim off.
Tho next morning I hoard them talk
ing together at the depot, and they
said they had Andrew in a safe place;
that ho would soon rot in that car
box. When they took him out of the
house he was wrapped up in two or
throe of my mother's old skirts
ono black and ono yellow. They said
they was going off from here. I told
(hem If they did I would teil Mr.
Burch. They said I had hotter not
tell Mr. Burch nothing. On the
night of the killing my mother was
cooking supper when the boys car
ried him in the house and my sister,
Lucilo, was sick in bed, and my fa
ther was in Wilmington, \\ C., on
his run. Ile did not. como back un
! til the next night. I do not think my
I father and mother knowed anything
I about it, and William did not help
John and Harry, but he was there
and saw lt all.

candidates for Governor of South

same stump und there were no "dead
men In trenches" as had heen pre
dicted, '-even no personal encount
ers.V and hut little disorder. lt
should ho remarked, however, that
?pening meeting was used hy the
champions chiefly for sparring
mentngs, for taking each other's
(uro preparatory for the body
to he delivered later.
Ivernor Blense, who. spoke first,
read,: his entire speech from manu
script, and made no direct reference
to his opponent, devoting most of
his time to the defense of lils admin
istration and to outlining his present
platform.
Judge Jones followed, and also
read from- manuscript tho various
plunks i in.his platform, hut after fln
Is'Jiug '-Cue manuscript he foll upon
Governor Blease and hogan to score
his pardon record and for intimating
that the corporations were hack of

This aroused and stirred the

Judge Jones was Interrupted four

that stood directly in front of bim.
,. '?Could Baise tho Hoof."
"Just 'wo men hollered for
Blease," shouted Judge Jones defi
antly? "If 1 were to ask tho Jones
men to holler they would raise the
court' house roof. Something has
boen said about the corporations be

I don't know it."
"I do know that W. H. Andrews,
president of the Atlantic Coast Lum

noisiest and most blatant supporters
of GoVernor Blease. lt was by a de

1 ./Applause was Divided.

car box; thal Eubanks came oui

- Amidst the clamor of yells from ri
val factions, and the friendly shouts
of Slate delegations, the fifteenth
Republican National Convention be
gan its history-making course at
noon. There was none of the seri
ous disorder that had been feared.*
A row minutes alter tho gavel had
crashed its summons to the dele
gates, quiet had been obtained, and
Chaplain Callaghan repealed his
prayer.
Immedlatoy after this expression of
reverence!, however, developments
came like shots from a rapid lire gun.
First Big Victory.
Taft men drew first hood In tho
convention when Chairman Rosewa
ter, after listening to arguments of
the Roosevelt and Taft forces, ruled
out of order the demand of tho
Roosevelt men that the temporary
roll be amended. By the proposed
amendment, contesting Roosevelt
delegates that were under contest
would have been substituted for
Taft delegates admitted by the na
tional committee. The action of
Chairman Rosewater prevented a
vote by the convention on tho Roose
velt proposition,

for supremacy was heated and close
between tho two contestants, Killin
