A NEW DISTRICT ATTORNEY.
Ernest F Cochran of Anderson, Appointed
to Succeed John G. Caperi Whose
Capt. John G. Capers s own
an-i out as United States district
attornev. 'Thursdav President
Rooseveh appointed E" I I rnest F.
Cochran, of Anderson. his success
or. Mr. Cochran was not an appli
cant for the place, but the presi
(lent knew him as a candidate for
the judgeship should another judge
be provided for, and he was evi
dently iimpressed by the high testi
monials which had been presented
in his behalf. The failure of Mr.
Capers to receive reappointment is
the consequence of the investigation
made by the agents of the depart
ment of justice.
It is learned that one of the prin
cipal charges against Mr. Capers is
that he was reported to be retained
by the Richland Distilling company
in a suit in which that company is
defendant against a distiller in
Asheville. The Richland Distilling
company is liable to be brought in
to the United States court as a de
fendant, in which case it would be
the duty of the district attorney to
prosecute it. The legislative dis
pensary investigating committee
caused the distillery to be investiga
ted by the United States internal
revenue officers, and it is said that
it was found to be violating the laws
of the United States. so that at the
very time the district attorney was
acting as the attorney of the distil
lerv, it was committing acts for
which it might any day become his
duty as an official of the govern
ment to prosecute it.
WHAT CAPT. CAPERS SAYS.
When seen in Greenville Mr..
Capers would have nothing to say
about his future plans, or whether
he intended to resign as a national
republican .committeeman. Mr.
Capers said he had seen the pub
lished statements that charges had
been filed against him, 'but that he
knew nothing further about it, that.
he did not know the author or au
thors of the charges,. or to what
they referred, whether personal or
official, and had never received a
line officially as to the alleged
charges from any of the authorities 1
"I should think, however," Mr.
'Capers added, "that there should be.
some way to ascertain what the
charges are and who made them. I
shall certainly s'pare no pains to find '1
that much out, regardless of the
office, for there is no four year term
to a man's character of which I amn
IR. AIKEN FILED. CHARGES.
Representative Wyatt Aiken is1
the man through whom chargesi
were filed against the appointment
of John G. Capers as district attor
ney, says the Washington corres
pondent of the State. This he1
stated and gave .his reasonS.
"Some time ago," he said, "I came
to the conclusion that Capt. Capers
was not the man for such a place.
th. \it wvas a great injustice to the
stais >o both democrats and repub
licans, to have him in an office of
such responsibility. Nunmerouis
persons complained to me aind I
have no doubt complained to other
representatives about it and as no1
one else seemed to take the matter
up, I determined to. do it, and as I
do not wish to be thought half
hearted in this or anything else, you
may say that for several months I
have pursued the subject persistent
ly and relentlessly."
Here Mr. Aiken stopped, then
after a little added: "And vou
might say I have called on the
president and the attorney general
a number of times and I have placed
with them all the letters and corn
plaints that have come to me."
"What other charges besides the!
one connecting him with the dis -
tilling company were filed ?" Mr.
Aiken was asked.
-"Oh, it is not necessary to go into'
that. I will only say that they are'
of a public nature concerning his
actions as district attorney and es
pecially as republican referee for
South Carolina. There were all~
sorts of complaints about the ap-.
pointments he recommended, but*
there is no use to go into particu- p
ars. There is no manner of doubt
tat he is unfit for the place and

There is a general disposition on admo
