On Saturday afternoon, in Chester
field county, Steve Williams, a half
witted and a very inoffensive negro,
was met in tVhe road and shot to death
by two other negro boys, Thattus

were full of booze, and on their way
to church. They have been arrested

A Puzzle of the Courts.
News and Courier.
The mistrial in the case of the state
against Davenport. charged with in
tent to kill, in Newberry county, is an
other puzle of the South Carolina
Criminal courts. Davenport, a well
to-do and prominent farmer, shot
Smith. a farmer and merchant equally
prominem and well-to-do.
The men disputed about a pianta
tin road. a cause of quarrels among
farmers scarcely less prolific than :he
line fence. Both men were on horse
back. Smith was in his shirt sleeves
and unarmed. Davenport shot him
through and through the body. He
has never recovered, and the doctors
testified that his mind and body are
to a degree wrecked. The shooting
occurred nearly a year gao. The one
eye-witness swore that before he shot,
Davenport cried out that Smith was
"riding upon him," but that- Smith
was not riding upon him. The facts
are not disputed. The defendant,
Davenport, did not take the stand
himself and he offered no testimony.
Workman, t'he third party and a friend
of Smith, and two surgeons were the
only witnesses. The state and the de
fence were represented by lawyers of
reputation. The jury was out six
hours and then a mistrial was ordered.
It is said that the jury wvas unani
mously for acquittal of assault and
battery wi'h intent to kill, and of as
sault and bat tery of a high and aggre
vated nature. b)ut two jurors held for
conviction of a simple assault.
When a man shoots another
:hrough and through the body, what
can his intention be?
W\e have no comments to offer.
The admitted facts carry their own
co,mment. It is worth while for good
citizens :o ponder them. It is an in
teresting case, to say the least.
