THE LIE PASSED
BY'MR. J. M. WALKER AND MR.
W. W. SMOAK.
The Testimony on Wednesday-Live
ly Scenes In The Dispensary In
vestigating Oommittee Meet
At the meeting of the investigating
committee Wednesday, jiays the Co
lumbia State, Mr. Lyon put up wit
nesses in the matter of the charge
that Maj. John Black and1 H. H.
Evans haq tried to ingratiate them
selves into the favor of Mr. J. M.
Walker, memiber of the house of
representatives froml Colletonl county.
M-1r. Walker made a statement. de
elaring firmly that Maj. Black had
had nothing to do with the transac
tion. He said(i that so mitch of it as
related to Mr. Evans and himself was
purely of a personal inature. le de
nied that lie had been warned or ad
vised not to make draft on Mr. Evans
for $75 to pay for a gui?. He de
(ared in effeetr that it. would have
been unnatuiral for him to have voted
agaiiist Maj. Black.
Mlr. W. W. Smoak, ea.hier of the
bank at which the draft was presented
for payment, swore 11 positively that
Mr. Walker had conineeted the names
of Maj. Black and Mr. Evans ini tell
ing him for what purpose the money
was to be used. Mr. Smoak declared
further that lie had pointed out to
Mr. Walker that lie was making a
step which he might regret and that,
when the draft came back without
payment because of Mr. Evans' ab
sence from Newberry at the time, Mr.
-wailkcer stat6d, to him that he ww,a I
glad that it had turned out that way
for the sake of appearanievs.
Before the session for the after
noon was over, quite a lot of feeling
arose between Mr. Smonk and Mr.
Walker. and the lie was passed. The
marshal of the committe(V.7 Mr. F. S.
Strickland. zrabbed Mr. Walker, an(d
others held Mir. Simonk i until tle two
witiesses olietvd down. Qnite a lot
(ft' commoticin was made, and Chair
mnii Hay anmtiouieed that a contii
11nec of the disthurbance wonuld result
in somebody bein jailed. TIre dis
pute arose out of a matter of which
Mr. Lyon himself knew no particulars
iutil Mr. Smonk told it. Mr. Lyon
knew in a vawue way that Mr. Simonk
knew sonethinz else. and by Mr.
Lyon's handling the situation some
what. adroitly Mr. Smoak was pre
railed ion, io testir y that Mr. Wal
ker had told him that Ma.i. Black had
hien Mr. Walker a $40 suit of
clothes. This is the statement that
rr. Walker resented with so much
Mr. Walker's Statement.
The first witness put on the stand
W~edniesdlay afternoon was Mr. .T. M.
Walker of Colleton. who has reprec
sented that cotunty in thle house of'
repiresentat ives for four yearis. HeI
was asked by Mir. Lyon what he knew'
of a ceirtain matter'. and in a frank
manneri('i he told all t hat lie knecw. He
puit the ( whlr biusines es oin thiei'-ou nd
ofI pe rs~ona l friendshiin. 'r id fthat his
coniscien(e had11 beenC (lar in the mat-I
ter and that lie had r'e'ardedl Mir. H.
H.Evans, thle ofther party of the
tranacton,as an honorable gentle
man. Hie declared that Ma,j. Black
had nothing whatever to do withI the
Tt all started last year, during fair
wieek. lie said. H1e was in his room at
the Columbia hotel with several own..
I lemen, among them Mr. 11. H-. Evans,
Mi'. Richard Black, a brother of Maj. .
Black, Hion. E. T. LaFcitte oif Ban;
heture and Hon. J1. E. Harley of' Barn
well. It was discussed there that. Mr.
Ev'atns would be a candlidate for i'e
election aiid fliat Maj. Black might
offei' as a candidate for a place on the
board'(. The talk dirifted to the sub
jecct of' all going on a hunt and he in
viuted, them all to conme dowin t.o Col
heton to go oii a hunt. with him.
Mr'. Eyanis asked Mr. Walker' if lie
had a good gun. Witniess replied that
lie had nothing but a single bairreled
gun. Mr. Evans then said thia lie had
ai good1 gun wvhich he would 'like to
give Mr. Walker if the latter would
aiccent it. Mir. Walker stated that he.
would be glad to have a good gun
On his return home, he receivedi a let
ter from Mr. Evans in which it wit
stated that he didn't know how to bu:
a gun and for Mr. Walker to draw oi
Iiiim for $75 for the purpose of biuy
ing a gin.
Mr. Lyonl asked Mr. Walker it' A
Sinoak had not cautioned him whet
lb went to the bank to make the draft
This Mr. Walker denied. Mr. Smoal
had not said that it was highly im
proper and would appear that lie ha<
sold his vote. He said that he hai
not heard that he had been criticiset
byv the people of Walterboro. A
soon as lie had heard of it lie lia
slited that lie would like to conic be
fo' thle committee.
71r. Lyon, hie said, had told htinl
then that. hie did not tink that
would 1)ush1 the inquiry into this mat
ter. Mr. Lyon asked if lie ha(I nol
qualified that expression of opinlionl
ad Mr. Walker said that he coukl
not recollect it.
Mr. Walker thlen took up tle nt
ler- of tile telephone Coniversa t ion it
which hie-cominuinicated to a membe1
of his family the result of the electioi
of members of the board of dispen
sary directors. He said that the mar
who intercepted that message is
skulking cur. He found that tle leg
islature would not adjourn silie di<
until late in the day Saturday, throw
ng him unt1il Monday getting lionie
so lie used the long diistance 'ph1om1
to notify his family. In that conver
sation lie had Spoken with pleasure o1
tle election of Maj Black aind state(
that it hadl meant a good deal to hi'm
Inl explaining this conversation, wit
ness said that the reason why Maj
Black's election would heip him is he
:Iuse that gentleman has so many re
1:vcIs in Colleton and Beaufor
1 -1ies, and as he had worked hart
' 1Maj. Black's election he could ex
"I"t Ihem to help him in his cam
'aigni for solicitor.
He a<hnitted that Ie had felt glam
tlat the draft on Mr. Evans haid beet

time-ago the latter had let fall Born

Mir. Smonk as a matter of, diuty to tell

i that he be not, forced to do it, and
stated that he would not tell- unless
c he were so forced.
- Mr. Hay, as c'hairimlan of the Coml

I certain whether or not this evidence
1 would be relevant. Mr. Lyon admitt
ed that lie did not, know what Mr.
I Smoak knew. Mr. Snioak stated, in
- reply to questions, that it was a mat
ter het ween Mr. Walker and an offic
k ial of the dispensary. Mr. Hay was
about to rile the matter relevant
when Mr. LaFitte, legal representa

I ferred to must. have been between Mr.
Walker and sonime dispensary official

a diel2t delio. helve ! him and an

- that this man was then an offieer
of tihe dispensary and up for re
election would make it relevitat.
- Mr. Sioak--''1 fear that this is

Mir. AIlIker-'' I would like to state
