Marlon, Va.. December -S.?Anent
tbe recent trlal of .1. L. C. Anderson.
Treasurer of Sinvth county. on tne ruio
issued agalnst hlm by the Clrcult
Court, recent publications havo been
misleadlng. Durinu tbe recent heated
campaign in thls district certaln news?
paper articles" were publlshed tendlng
tu reflect serlously upon Mr. Ander
son'a conduct of his olllce. the lnfer
ence being drawn that he had lmprop
crly and Intentlonally placed a large
number of names on the voting lists
for ;? rtls'an advantages. By reason
or tiii-<< publlshed charges, tho court
Instructed the grand Jury at the No
y, ..,; . t th court to make in
tlon of the fucts and report its
, which wa< done.
The grand jury reported 224 names
whlch were on the voting list for 1910,
and which were returned delinquent
for om* of tho years?1007. 190S and
1909?and l.'OSO narhes of partios who
had not been assessed for one or moro
of tbe three years above named. Tho
trlal was had last week. and resulted
in a verdlct of "guilty of gross negloct
of ofllclal duty."
The facts as I recall them, as they
appi-ared ln evidonco, were an follows:
Of the 224 names abovo mentlonel, all
excepl fifty-four were satlsfactorily
explained, the grand jury Itself havlng
asto thnt Ilat made twcnty-clght mls
takes as to certaln names, somo of
whlch were not on tho voting list, and
others not returned delinquent as to
capltations, as charged. In making
the llfty-four mistakes, an average ol
eighteen per year, in dealing wlth 3.000
voters each year. lt ls stibmitted that
it Is no more than will almost un
avoidably occur in any offlce having se
manv transactions to deal wlth, and
especially at times when parties anc
party workers are crowding the ofllce
all anxlou's to pay before the tlme
As to the 1.030 list, something llkr
400 wero young men, wbo could noi
have gone on tho commlssloner'-* booh
for the year in which lt was cbargec
they were not assessed; about 10'
names wore repcated in each of tht
three years, and tho grand jury ltseli
mado '227 mistakes, either reportinj;
the names of men who were not or
the voting Ust at all, or were in faot
assessed, the llnes and pages of tht
conimissloner's books glven ln eael
instance where they were assossed. Thi
great majority of the other names re
turned by the grand jury ln thls Us
woro satlsfactorily explained by Mr
AndefSOn. The law as to making ui
voting lists and recelvlng taxes, ai
detined by the court, was dlfferen
from the vlows under whlch Mr. An
dei-son and party workers on botl
sldes had been actlng in thls county
The work thrown upon Mr. Andersoi
just at a tlme when ho was busles
receiving taxes, of golng through th
records of hls oilice, thc voting am
delinquent lists for tho past thre
yoars has boon lmmenso, and lf he liar
had further tlmo other names mlgh
be satlsfactorily explained. Thoso no
explained as errors of tho grand jur;
or otherwlse wore admitted by Mi
Anderson as errors of hls ottlce, mad
olther by hlmself or some < of hi
deputics or clerks. llow those error
crept ln Mr. Anderson was unable l
explain, but stated ouiphatiuully tha
he had never placed on, or omltte
from, olther list, or recelved mone
on taxes Improperly, knowlngly or ln
tentionally, and no attempt was mad
to contradlct thls statement or ln
valldate his testlmony.
Judge Fudge, Cominonwcalth's At
torney of thls county, who closed tb
caso for the prosecutlon, stuted tha
he Jr.id known .Mr. Andorson all hl
llfe. and tliat thero was notliJng ln hl
llfo, or ln the evidonco in the case, t
causo hlm to doubt or questlon eltliii
tho integrlty or honosty of Mr. Andoi
son, and that, ln his vlew, thore wn
not ln tho ovldcnco any foundation f<
tho statement that Mr, Andorson Im
aoled ln any Instance to favor hls ow
party, but that, so far as ho knov
thero were as many Democrats as Ri
publlcans, who had been Improperl
placed on the voting list. There w'
not tho slightest evldence, so far i
I cun rocall. that Mr. Andorson hu
ovor at any timo attompted to pad tl
voting Ust in favor ot the RepubUcu
party, so that I soo no warrant, fro
the facts in thls case, for any stat.
ment that tho verdlct in this oaao ln
pairs tho electlon of Mr, Slomp i
anybodv olse. Many public olllola
