Shall We Enforce The Law?
Upon a report submitted by Chief
Constble Hammett, Governor Hey
ward will send constables into Pick
ens county to suppress the illegal sale
of liquor in'that county, and under the
Brice bill, on the authority given him
in that bill, will use funds resulting
from the one half mill tax in paying
the salary -.and expenses of the con
Mr. Hammett was also in Newberry
in response to an order of Governor
Heyward to investigate the situation
in this county. He reported that in
his judgment it was necessary to send
con:stables to Newberry county as
there were illegal whiskey sales here.,
especially in the rural district.
G3vernor Heyward, however, has
held up the matter in this county for
the present at the request of officers
of the law and order league recently
organized here. Of course he cannot
act officially through them, but must
act through the legally constituted
iauthority, but if the law and order
league, with the cooperation of the
sheriff and magistrates and other law
tofficers can suppress the illegal isale
of whiskey, no-constable will be sent
into this county. It is now up
to our legal authorities and citizens to
say whether or ndt the law shall be
enforced in this county without the
intervention of the state constables.
:That there were illegal sales under
de dispensary law, and that the il
legal sales reorited are from the
-same section "of the county, will be no
excuse or reason for Governor Hey
ward not sending constables here.
They were here under the dispensary
aw for the purpose of enforcing the
law in either locality, and because they
' did not do it is no reaso'n why they
should not 2nake the effort now.. They
may not be able to enforce the law if
they are'sent by the Governor, but it
is his duty to make the effort to have
~ t en'forced; and the only way for him
to do this, is iby sending state con
stables'There, and using the one half
mill tax provided: in the Brice bill to
pay their salary and expenses. It is
hoped that our people will be able to
~- enforce this law against the illicit
sale. of whiskey without the aid ol
st ate constables, and thus save the
expenses. But will we do it? is :he
question- we must answer, not in
words, but by our action.
-In speaking of "The 'Clansman'
and the lesson which its auth'or says
he intends it to teach and the warning
to the white people to avert the re
~currence of such scenes as it depicts
the Sumter News very aptly remarks:
"We stand much more in need of a
warning against the terrible state oi
affairs into which we'will drift if the
disregard of law which has been mak
-ing itself so fearfully felt swithin the
Iast few years, should continue. The
'drama shlould be wholesome, and this
does not mean that .it should preach.
The greatest master of the dramatic
art, no matter what disaster befell
the characters with which he dealt,
always brought out hope at the end,
and, without preaching, inculcated a
wholesome lesson. No 'counterfeit
presentment' has a right to appeal to
emotions except for their purification
(We take up much space today in the
publication of the account of the
missing bonds from. the ;state treas
urer's office. It is a matter near home
and is 'of interest ;to all the people of
The announcement of the loss of
t5hese bonds in the manner in which
it is claimed they were lost was a
great surprise to the public as every
one had the greatest confidence in
If the staltements of the losses as
they appear now are correct we do not
ibelieve the state treasurers s'hould be
made to suffer the loss because regu
larly appointed officials of the state

Statement-Had Never Left
Columbia, October 18.-Daniel Zim
merman, who is charged with sub
stituting ig state bonds, appeared be
fore Magistrate McMaster this after
noon at 5 o'clock and waived prelimi
nary. The bond for his appearance
at the trial was placed at $17,ooo and
was signed by F. H. Weston and J.
P. Matthews, of Columbia, and T. A.
Amaker, a banker of St.4MatThew's.
The bond states that Mr. Zimmerman
'will appear at the term of criminal
court in this county the third 'Monday
Another interesting chapter is add
ed to the story by the fact that Depu
ty Sheriff Catchcart went up th(
Charlotte road this afternoon with
the warrant for the arrest of Mr. Zim
merman, and that the sheriff was not
noified by the magistrate of Mr. Zim
merman's intention to surrender. The
deputy sheriff acted on the statemeni
of several people that Mr. Zimmermar
had been seen to leave Columbia or
the Charlotte train which leaves al
3:10. In the meantime, young Mr
Daniel Zimmerman notified Magis
trate McMaster that his father was ir
the city and would appear at the office
at 5 o'clock.
Mr. Zimmerman, accompanied b3
his son, drove up to the-magistrate'9
office in a closed carriage and went ai
once to the office of Mr. G. Duncar
Bellinger, a few doors 'below, for z
consultation. Mr. Bellinger had beer
engaged only two hours before. Th<
three then went to the magistrate'
office, where the bond was signed an(
Mr. Zimmerman at once left for hi
No statement could be obtaine<
from. Mr. Zimmerman, but his sot
said/ that later a statement might bo
given out, but that for the present hi!
father did not wish to say anythinj
except that 'he had not been eluding
the sheriff and had been in the city
Mr. Zimmerman also stated the sami
to Sheriff Coleman, who went to thi
office of the magistrate when he 'hear<
that Mr. Zimmerman was there. Mr
Zimmerman firmly declined to mak,
any statement for t.he present.
The Ex-Treasurers Busy.
Former Treas.urers WV. T. C. Bate
and W. H. Timmerman spent anothe
day in Columbia yesterday. D1
Bates and Dr. Timmerman tried ti
have an interview with Mr. Zimmer
man, but could not find him and toda:
the two former treasurers spent the
day looking into the exact liabilit:
and how they could protect then
The state will not lose more tha:

Who Handled The Bonds?
An effort was made today to trac
the handling of the bonds. Most a
the 'bonds were sold in Charlestor
and no one c'oul.d be iblamed of cours
for buying a valid and proper bond c
the state. The brokers in Charlesto
state t'hat they do not care to give ir
formation as to the parties fror
whom the bonds were purchased ur
less officially required to do so.
There appears to be a general opir
ion here in State House circles tha

handle a valid and good bond when
ever offered to him and t'hat he 'haa
no reason to suspect that any bond

mer treasurers 'that 'Mr. Zimmermal
"had put 'him on to" considera6bl
