The Times and Democrat,
Orangeburg, S. C.
TJncfflcial statistics of the year show
that the number of murders and sui
? cides in this country has greatly in
/ 'creased, and that there has been a de
crease in the number cf legel extcu
tions, compared with the Lumber oi
icmicldes.. The homicides and deaths
by violence total 9,212, as compared
with 8,482 for tbe year 19^4.
The startling feature cf the record
is the increase in the number of mur
dcirs committed by highwaymen, be
inp582, against 464during 1904. Four
. years ago the number ?"? only 103.
Jealousy provoked 579 murders and
liquor 642. Homicides growing out
ol quarrels number 5 111. The record
cf self-destruction is one of the most
deplorable of tbe year, the number of
. prominent men biirg much larger
than hitherto. The total is 9,982, an
increase of 542 ove:: the list of the
proceeding year. The steadiness of
tile increase is indicated in the fol
In 1899, 5 340; 1900, 6 775; 1901,
7.245; 1902, 8 597; 1904 9,420; 1905,
The proportion of suicides between
men and women remains about the
same, nearly twice as many men as
. women taking their own lives. Phy
sicians head the list cf professional
men, the number being 340
The causes were despondency, do
mestic, infelicity, dissapolntment in'
love, 111 health, liquor and business
losses. Poison was resortf d to in 4,
732 cases, shooting in 2,861, hanging
tot 1,022 and drowning in 868.
Ten blew themselves up with dyna
xalte and three starved themselves.
The legal executions numbered 133
cf which 51 were in tbe North and 82
in the South. Sevebty-three were
negroes, 59 white men and one a
; Mrs. Bogers, of Vermont, was the
one woman executed. Showing, the
relative changes of murderers and ex
ccutions it may be said that in 1835
.1,808 murders were reported, while
the number of hangings was 108, while
:bhis year 133 were hanged or electro
cuted for 9 212 murders committed.
The number of lycohings was 66,
'She smallest number reported since 18
-35 when statistics were first gathered
?by tbe press. Of the total number lyn
. ched 65 were negroes. Thirty four
were lynched for murder, 15 for crim
inal assault and 15 for miscellaneous
A. Finny affair.
The newspaper controversy, be
tween D. H. Means, clerk of the sink
ing fund commission, and Jessie T.
Gauntt, late private secretary Secre
tary of State M. B. Cooper and pres
ent secretary of State is calculated to
make the people sit up and pay atten
tion. As the Newberry Observer
says the gist of the whole thing is
that there has probably been "graft"
in the secretary's office. It looks
that way, though the proof is only
circumstantial and inferential, Five
books of the c ffi 3e are missing?said
to have been destroyed by a very
mysterious fire in che secretary's of
fice?a fire that seems to have known
precisely wnere these books were and
to have gone for them and scarcely
anything else. Four of the bock;
were books Oof original entry, in
which Mr. Gaunt j, while private sec
retary and aftervrai d? as secretary cf
state entered, the charier fees of the
cfflce; the other was a bonk kept by
Mr. Means himself showing fees
turned over to him. Mr. Means ex:
planation of the books puts M Sec
retary Gauntt is a very awkwaiu posi
tion bi fore the public. Mr. Gauntt
replies that Mr. M -ads is an "enemy"
'and is trying to injure him. Toere
will likely be some revelations by an
investigating committee Dt fure the
matter is ended. S^uth Carolina
cannot afford to let c fficial scandals
like this be fought out in the news
paper. A thorougb^and impartial/ in
vestigation is needed and there is
reason to hope that the whole affair
will be sifted to tbe bottom.
"Will Be on J?op."
While speaking before more than
three thousand negroes in Macon, Ga.
emancipation day, John W. Gilbert,
cf Paine college, Augusta, urged
the leaders of his race to fight for a
jury trial in cases before tbe
oourts, where twelve of their peeis,
that is twelve members of the colored
race, shall decide the matter at issue.
In a very long address, he urged this
change and was received with great en
thusiasm. He said the negroes ,d
the same right as the white r< o
tbe ancient trial before a juryo? .ir
peers, and protested that twelve w^ite
men could in no initance be termed
tne peer of the negro. The sugges
tlon was an entirely new one, and fell
lipon the ears of his hearers with a
profoundness that was astounding.
The matter stirred the negroes as no
other similar utterance irom a negro
speaker before a gathering of Macon
negroes in many years. He said if
the race was to judge from the prog
ress which had been made during the
past thirty years, the passage of an
other similar period will witness a
civilization that will put tbe race on
a firmer basis than that occupied by
the whites. "They will be on top"
-were the words that fell from the
speaker under the spell of the occas
