Olds, whoso l'a '?uv ?uado gas en

Whitman, tit Oconee county, who is
serving a six months' sentence im
posed hy tho Federal court at Green
ville on the charge of violating tho
rational prohibition law. Sheriff
Miller and Jailer Lancaster say Mr.
Whitman Ifas been a model prisoner
and has given thom no trouble.
Mr. Whitman claims ho is a vic
tim of a consplrfncy, a "frame-up,"
by moonshiners of Oconee county,
who took this method of "getting
revengo on him" because be bad re
ported som? of them for operating
moonshino si?ls. Accoi Mug to the
minister's story, most of bis neigh
bors in Oconeo county had been en
gaged in tho manufacture of whis
key, and after bo bad begged them
to desist and they bad refused to do
so,, bo reported somo of them to the
officers. Tho ofneers asked him to
get further evidence, and be then
told some of his neighbors that be
had a curiosity to seo a still in oper
ation. They told him they would bo
glad to gratify his wish, and told
kim to como to a certain place on a
certain night. Ile-did so, and found
what be supposed to bo a still in
operation. Just after ho appeared
on '.be scene, bo said, the owners of
tho plant ran off and officers carno tip
and arrested him. His trial and con
viction followed, tho court, sentenc
ing bim to six months In tho Spar
tanburg jail. His sentence will ex
pire about tho last of October.
Is a Rapt ist Preacher.
Mr. Whitman, who appears to bo
nbout in years old, says he is an
ordained Baptist minister, and has
been engaged in evangelistic work
for a number of years. Some time
ago. according to his story, bo be
came interested in child welfare
work and succeeded In finding homos
for a . number of unfortunate and
reedy children, ills work along this
lino gradually developed into an or
phanage, which bo established In
Oconee county, about ton miles north
of Seneca. He says lie had a tract
of 12 acres of land, with a 10-room
houso and a four-room cottago on tho
place. Ho soon found that most of
lils neighbors were moonshiners, he
says, and then his troubles began.
He said that he had JG children in
thc orphanage at the Hmo of his ar
Family Conies Here.
After lils trial and conviction Mrs.
Whitman and ber ilvo clbldren woro
loft alone at tho homo in Oconeo

says, and about six weeks ago Mrs.

Mr. Whitman says ho has never

his arrest and conviction and bis jail

Will Not Abandon Preaching,
Mr. Whitman said yesterday that
his plans for tho futuro wore some
what indefinite, but that ho expected
to again engage in ministerial and
evangelistic work after bc completos

Mr, Whitman said ho had been
kindly treated by tho authorities in
