Judge Prince Comments on Soft Noiced
Judge Prince enjoys a lidiculous
situation as much as anybody. He
doesn't wear the stern, austere expres
sion of most judges. He studies each
witness as ho is placed on the stand,
ami frequently asks questions eu
points which the attorneys do not
Yesterday morning while a well
known magistrate was on tho stand,
the court hud difficulty in understand
ing the magistrate's testimony. Judge
Prince asked him the second timo to
j "speak out," followed by tho remark:
"I have never in all my life seen so
many snit voiced people ns are in
Greenville county," which evoked no
end of amusement.
In tho midst of the Grundy mu-der
trial yesterday morning, the solicitor
asked fora beer bottle. The dep.ities
began to look at each other, wondering
if such a thing was to be found, when
Judge Prince broke the silence with
the remark: "There's plenty of them
lying around here,1' whereupon a
search was made, and the long-necked
bottle was habed up ont of one of the

Engineer Drunk While Running a Train.
St. Matthews, May t.-Tuesday night
several residents of this place boarded
the Southern's train from Charleston
to Columbia at Orangeburg and it wns
not long before it became evident that
something was wrong, by the lurching
and sudden jarring movements of the
train. On teaching this place the en
gineer was found to be almost help
lessly drunk. Tho conductor, Capt.
Murray, who was in charge of the train,
had the engineer removed to the bag
gage car and w ired to the authorities
for an engineer to carry the train to
Columbia, An engineer was sent from
Branchville to take the train on and
meanwhile the many passengers had a
tiresome wait. Among the passengers
were several prominent men.
The run on which this incident oc
cur red-is on the Charleston division of
tho Southern and the Columbia ellice,
Superintendent Williams, knew noth
ing of it until informed yesterday by
a representative of The State that the
information above was in the posses
sion of this newspaper. Tho State's
Charleston correspondent was instruct
ed to see Superintendent Heetherbut
his replv was as follows:
"Charleston, May 4.-Superintendent
I Iee thor was out of tho city to-day and
could not bo communicated with. No
information about the alleged drunk
enness of the engineer could be got
from the other officials who were seen
and they all reforred The State's repre
sentativo to Mr. Heether for any state
ment which may be made upon the
This, of course, is a very serious mat
ter and the penalty under the rules of
the railroad is instant dismissal for the
offen ding engineer. A pathetic feature
of t he case is that the engineer in ques
tion is said to be one of the oldest in
the service and has made an honorable
