WEI? NEMO AV, AUGUST Ul, 11)12.
THE CAMPAR?N MEETING,
The state campaign meeting for
Oconce in 1912 has been held and is
a IliiiiK of tho past. One week from
the time al which Hie candidates
were speaking In the grove al tho
Court House before the people of
Oconce, the people of this good old
.ounty will be casting their ballots
ai the Court House and at other pre
cincts for tho mon who spoke.
What will be I ho result ?
Tho Courier has stood aloof from
tiny unfair means during the cam
paign, and now. nt thu last moment
that we may speak before the elec
tion shall take place, we do not In
tend lo stoop to the use of any un
That the editor of The Courier
has stood squarely for Judge Ira B.
Jones from the start ls well known,
and that we are stronger to-day In
the assurance thal we are standing
for the right man and the right
principios ls a fact that we are glad
to tisser! We have grown stronger
in this conviction day by day, and
tbe campaign meeting fur Oconce
has given us additional strength.
And \t t our position is not taken as
the i? .-ult of the observations of a
year, two years, or ton.
lt so happens thal a few years of
our life were spent in tho city of
Newberry, the home of both candi
dates, and we have known of hoi h
men during tho past thirty years.
Upon that knowledge, and a reason
ably close and an unprejudiced ob
servation of public affairs and pub
lic nun during the mist t wen tv ve>>
or\i??r i'd South Ca roll li N? m?
nm mont claim for Judge Jones per
fection; but ho is a clean niau, high
toned, aldo, honorable--a gentle
man-in the highest sense of the
word A MAN.
Just as we say lo you. people of
Oconce, that Judge Jones is not
perfect for there is no representa
tive of tile human race in whom all
ls good and everything perfect-so
we sa.\ to yon that wo recognise that
there ls no man so bad that in him
cannot he found some good. On this
basis of reasoning we do not hohl
Judge Jones up to you as a perfect
man. without '.ault, infallible, nor
do wc say to you that Governor
B lea se is totally depraved. But, cit
izens of Oconce, we have a knowl
edge of both men, extending over
the past thirty years, a closer obser
vation extending ove; Hie period
during and since the Constitutional
Convention and session of the leg
islature following, both ol' which as
semblages it was our privilege to
look in upon frequently and to ob
serve men and incidents.
lt is upon t hose years of observa
tion that we base our appeal to von,
voter- of Oconce, to tum out next
Tuesday and vote intelligently, dis
passionately, laying aside nil of .111
Imosity and prejudice, casting your
ballots on tin side of right and for
the man who best represents that
which is highest and noblest, not only
in tile realm of humanity in it.-i wid
est sense, but in the more restricted
sphere of our affairs as represented
hy our State government
Think calmly. reason clearly.
Judge by the standard of right, citi
zen' of Oconee, and cast your bal
lots accordingly, and when the
votes have been counted next Wed
nesday Oconee will have placed her
self on record as giving to Judge
ir? B Jones a larger majority in

The Verdict in Sequel t<? Famous Mc
Los Angeles, Aug. 17.-Clarence
S. Darrow was to-day acquitted of a
charge of Jury bribing.
After a trial that ba? lasted since
early in May, the famous advocato of
the causo of union labor was freed
bv the jury from charges growing
oiit of sensational ending of the trial
of James B. McNamara, confessed
slaver of 21 persons.
When the jurors Hied out Darrow
was not given to the custody of the
sheriff. Instead, the court directed
Earl Hogers, chief counsel for the de
fendant, to "have and take charge of
Mrs. Darrow, who bad been sitting
beside her husband, dropped her
head on his shoulder and wept. There
was a murmur in the court room.
Then for a time it was still.
Darrow, his mobile face showing
the wear and tear of the long months
ol' anxiety, gazed steadily ahead ol'
him, except when, tor a moment, he
turned to comfort his wile. For 31
minutes the suspenso continued.
Then a bell rang. A deputy sherill
elbowed his way through the crowd
at the door. The jury was ready to
come lu. Slowly they made their
way to the jury box. The foreman
got to his feet:
"We, the jury," he read from a bit
of paper in his hand, "lind the de
fendant NOT guilty as charged in
The suspense was broken, lt gave
way to hysteria. Seldom in a court
room in this country has lhere been
such a scene.
The crowd in the back ol' the room
tried to rush past the inclosure to
the place where the defendant was
sitting. The bailiffs fought to hold
them back. Order was a thing un
heard ol', impossible. The spectators
had seen a little drama of real life.
They wanted to tell the hero what
they thought of him.
Darrow was profoundly moved.
Tears streamed down his cheeks, but
his rigid self-control did not give
way. Hardly had tho foreman read
his one brief sentence before the de
fendant stepped toward the jury box
and thanked the men who had just
declared him innocent.
Mut before he went even to the
jurors he turned to his wife. Mrs.
.Darrow threw her arms about her
husband's neck. Her husband gently
disengagv.l her arms, and friends
led her into the judge's chambers at
the rear ol' the court room.
