FOUND HIM GUILTY.
Chestnut Is Sent Up For a Fifteen
Robert Chestnut, who shot and
killed W?ill R. Sabin on the 25th of
last April, was sentenced on Satur
day by Judge DeVore to fifteen years
in the penitentiary or the same
length of time on the public works of
Orangeburg County, the jury which
tried his case having brought, in a
verdict of guilty of manslaughter,
after deliberating over the case
one whole night. The case was
given the jury about four o'clock on
Friday afternoon and the verdict was
returned a few minutes after seven
j o'clock Saturday morning.
.Chestnut shows plainly the effects
j of his imprisonment and'the terrible
I ordeal throuigh which he had passed.
When asked if he had anything to
say, his counsel, who had striven to
[ satisfy the jury of his innocence,
pleaded earnestly and eloquently for
I leniency from the court in passing
sentence. With voices at times ef
fected by the emotion,4 which was evl
! dent, '.Messrs. Adam H." Moss, William
C. Wolfe and Thomas M. Raysor
j drew attention to the many of the
phases of the case favorable to
defendant and laid much stress upon
his good character as testified to by
a number of witnesses, begging that
I the Court would take these into con
sideration in making the sentence as
light as possible.
The counsel for defence also took
I occasion to thank Judge DeVore for
his uniform impartiality throughout
! the trial and the learned manner in
which he expounded the law from
the Bench, stating that he had been
just to the State and fair tri the de
fendant. They asked for a sentence
that would vindicate the lair, calling
atention to the fact that anything
like a long term might mean a life
sentence to the convicted man, who
is now 38 years of age. After giv
ing careful attention to the remarks
of counsel for the prisoner, Judge
DeVore stated, addressing the defen
dant, that since the verdict was ren
dered he had been greatly concerned
over the amount of punishiaent that
should be meted out in thiB case.
The Judge went on to say to the
prisoner that an intelligent jury, af
ter considering the law anJ the evi
dence for about ten hours had failed
to recommend him to the mercy of
the Court, as they were told in the
charge they might do. The Court fur
ther declared that in Its opinion the
verdict was a just one; in fact Judge
DeVore stated that he felt; satisfied
that a verdict of murder, under the
testimony would have stood the test
of the Courts. Without attempting
to lecture the prisoner or make his
burden any heavier, Judge DeVore
reviewed some of the testimony, par
ticularly that of the defendant, which
the Court declared, in its opoinion,
was sufficient to convict of either
murder or manslaughter, with the
elimination of the evidence given by
every other witness in the case.
Continuing Judge DeVore said
the testimony of the defendant show
ed that he deliberately got his gun,
went to his victim's place of business
and without sufficient provocation, so
far as the testimony shows, took the
life of William R. Sabin. Judge De
Vore reiterated his opinion that,
taking out all the testimony in the
case except that of the defendant,
the jury was bound to convict of eith
er manslaughter or murder. In fi
nally passing the sentence of fifteen
years Judge DeVore did not leave
the prisoner hopeless, for he stated,
that, after a portion of the sentence
has been served, how much he did
not say, however, he would, if still
alive and circumstances prompted
him, join in a petition for a pardon.
Both the verdict and the sentence
meets with general approval. Mr.
L. H. Wannamaker, Jr., who report
ed the trial for his paper, The News
and Courier says, "that the length of
the sentence' surprised the prisoner,
his counsel and many spectators was
evident, although none was heard to
say that he Court had not in this
case tempered justice with mercy.
The verdict seems to have given gen
eral satisfaction, the popular opinion
being that the prisoner had fared ex
ceedingly well. This would seem to
be the case when it is considered that
on the first ballot at least seven of
the jurors voted for a verdict of
murder with recommendation to
mercy, finaly compromising on one
of straight manslaughter."
Chestnut's sole defence was that
the man he slew had invaded his
home, wronged his wife and destroy
ed his peace, and happiness for all
time. Commenting on this Mr. Wan
namaker says: "These things are
cbarged by the defendant against his
victim, who now sleeping in his Ten
nessee grave, his lips forever silent,
can make no answer in his own de
fence except the last message to the
world, given through his brother as
he fe't'the death damp gathering on
his brow, that he was innocent; that
he 1-new nothing of the woman he
was accused of wronging and that he
was ignorant of the whole affair.
What of the woman who many blame
for the sorrow that has come to two
households? What would she have
said had she been placed upon the
witness stand? Such can only be
guessed at and it is improbable that
what is in her heart and mind con
cerning this deplorable affair will
ever be known to others."
Tried Hard to Save him.
Chestnut's able counsel tried hard
to save him, countesting every inch.
The murder was committed just be
fore the convening of the May term
of the criminal court. The Orange
burg correspondent of The State
says: "The case was forced to trial.
Determined not to enter into trial at
that time the brilliant array of coun
sel employed to defend Chestnut
challenged the entire venire of jury
men. As a result of the examination
of the jury commissioners as to how
they drew the jury, Judge Prince de
lcared that it was emproperly drawn
and was Illegal. Court was broken
up." The postponement did not save
Chestnut as the sequel shows.
GOOD ROADS TRAIN
WILL BE AT SOUTHERN DEPOT
For Half a Day the Good Roads Spec
? ial Which is Touring South Caro
lina WiU Stop in This City.
Wherever it has been seen, the
Southern Railway's special "Road
Improvement Train," which will be
in Orangeburg on Wednesday morn
ing, September 20, at half-past nine
o'clock, has proven an effective advo
cate of better highways and much
good has resulted from its tour
I which has been in progress since May
The government road Experts, L.
E. Boykin and H. S. Fairbanks, who
accompany the train, have had wide
experience and are prepared to not
oi-ly tell of the advantages of good
I roads but to give the most practical
i information as to the best and most
j economical methods to be used in the
j construction and repair of roads in
order to accomplish the best results
with the materials at hand.
1 There will be much of interest for
?the people of Orangeburg in the lec
tures and novel exhibit, and it is
hoped that a large crowd will be on
hand to welcome the train. It is es
pecially desired that all road super
visors, county officials and farmers
who have to deal with road work on
their plantations, take advantage of
the meeting as many suggestions will
be given which will doubtless prove
of value to them in the building and
maintenance of roads.
Stereoptican views covering every
phase of the good roads movement
will be flashed upon the screen in the
lecture coach as the experts talk,
and all the advantages of good roads
as well as the disadvantages of bad
ones, wil be pointed out. There is
a striking view showing how bad
road led to the death of a patient
whom the doctor was unable to
reach because his buggy was caught
in a bad rut;; how the undertakers'
wagons were delayed on the way to
cemeteries for the same reason; and
other views show trying experiences
A view appealing especially to the
farmers and all interested in. the cot
ton industry is the one showing two
loads of cotton. One came to mar
ket over a bad road and the load nec
essarily was light while the other
came over a smooth improved road
and carried three or four times the
load of the other team, the difference
in the weights of the two loads show
ing the profits and losses that come
from good and bad roads.
In the exhibit coach, which will be
thrown open after lectures, there
are enlarged photographs, showing
some of the finest roads in the world,
including the well nigh perfect roads
of France, workin models which will
be seen in operation and sections of
various kinds of road showing mater
ials used to construct them. The far
mer who has ibeen at a loss how to
improve his road can find out all
about it by attending the exhibit.
The "Road Improvement Train" is
making a remarkable tour in the in
terests of good roads, having already
toured Alabama, Mississippi, Ten
nessee, North 'Carolina and Virginia.
After finishing its work in South
Carolina, the train will tour Georgia
Realizing the vast economic im
portance of the movement and acting
in the belief that whatever.benefits
the ;.tx>ple of the South is to Its own
interests, ?be Southern Railway and
affiliated lines is handling this train
over its entire system without charge
to the government sa that the people
along the roal may have the oppor
tunity to receive the valuable infor
mation on road tuildlng which it af
fords. President Finley of the South
ern Railway is an ardent advocate of
good roads, and the Southern Rail
way is doing everything posible to
spread the i?ea.
The train will be located while In
this city on a side track at the South
ern depot on Railroad avenue. Be
sure and see it. You vill be inter
ested. D^n't forget the date. Wed

STOLE HORSE AND BUGGY.
Negro Claiming to Be an Agent Has
Made His Escape.
Last Friday morning about 9 or
10 o'clock a negro, who said he was
agent for fruits, medicines, etc.,
came to the house of Moses Hair, a
colored blacksmith, on Windsor
street and asked to borrow Hair's
buggy to delived a package on the
State road. Hair lent the horse and
buggy, and also $G. The stranger's
name was not caught by Hair. He
was six feet high, dark skinned and
wore a suit of navy blue. Wore a
large rimed hat and a masonic pin.
Further on in the adventures of
the stranger for the day he borrowed
$7 from W. R. Bradley a colored
farmer living- about two or three
miles from town. Since that time
neither money, horse or man has
been seen. The stolen pony was
gray, shodded all round and glassy
eyed. 'Xo doubt when the stranger
discovers his mistake in leaving
without a farewell, he won't bother
to come back, but we warrant that
it will be hot for him if he does.

A Few Ideas Expressed Concerning
During the past week or so there
have been two cases which have at
tracted more than passing interest
in our County. The Chestnut mur
der case and the Leysath-Poole ar
son case both attracted crowds and
consequently the Court-House was
oppressively hot Remarking upon
this we have heard several citizens
say that if ventilators were placed
near the top of the Court-room it
would be much cooler, besides pur
ifying the air that all who attend
court have to breathe.
Many time during the progress of
the trials the witnesr.es could scarce
ly be seen at all, and several times
they were only heard by those near
by and they with difficulty. The
people outside the bar heard what
was going on only with an effort.
In this connection we have heard sev
eral say that they believed if the
witnesses was seated on a slightly
raised platform he fould be seen bet
ter and heard more clearly.
In connection with the two other
expressions above we have one. Prob
ably the Chestnut trial was the first
one during which the representatives
of the Press had an especial desk for
themselves. This was used t ythem
continually during; the trial and as
a resul of which full, interesting re
ports of the trial were had. Now,
in view of the fact that a great num
ber of people depend entirely upon
the press?especially the county
press?for their news cencerning
court, we believe it would be a good
idea to make this a pr-rmanent thing.
The press folks we are sure would
appreciate being able to hear the case
and take their notes in comfort, and
the readers of the paper would enjoy
the fuller and more accurate reports
that they wouid then give.
Negro Shoots a Negro.
The St. Matthews correspondent ofc
The News and Courier says: "The
peace and quietude of this town was
rudely disturbed Saturday night at
9.30 o'clock by five pistol shots in
rapid succession. Three physicians
were rushed to "Ruyck's Quarter,"
to find that Olin Hampton had been
shot in the thigh by George Taylor,
both colored. The femoral bone was
fractured by the bullet. Taylor, it is
said, had brutally clubbed Hampton's
wife, his former paramour, in the
morning, and when Hampton later
remonstrated with him Taylor whipp
ed out his pistol and began firing.
Taylor is of violent temper and a dan
gerous character, having been in
several cutting aud shooting scrapes."

Before the verdict In the Chestnut
case was announced, it was reported
that one of the jurors was under fi
nantial obligations to one of the law
yers for the defence and that Chest
nut owed another juror several hun
dred dollars. If this was true, it
did not affect the action of the jury,
as at no time was there any hint of
acquittal. Like honest men, they did
their duty as they saw it, regardless
of personal considerations.
