AS TO IMMIGRATION.
The Press of the State seems to
have gone into rapture about the com

foggyism does not permit, us to be
thrown into cesasy about the matter.
We are willing to watlch this experi

in all that. is expected of it. by its pro
motors, but we are not going into fits

assurance that it is a real success.
We have no objection to a reason

condition they are to contend with,
and without having lalse hopes raised
in their minds by over zealous inimi

May be, tle coting of the Witte

The following is a copy of an
' fdavit made by Young Davis,
father of Mart Davis:
South Carolina-Newberry county.
Personally appeared Young Davis
and being duly sw,orn says that his
son, Mart Davis, that was reported to
be lynched Saturday night,- is still
living and going, about. Mart Davis,
my sou, was at my house on Sunday
evening and Monday morning, Nov. 18
and 19, 1906. his
Young X Davis.
Sworn to before me Nov. 22, 1906.
J. B. Smith, (L. S.) .
Magistrate for No. 6 Township.
My opinion is that Mart Davis is
evading arrest under the warrant
Sworn out, by the Dorrolis, charging
him with shooting at them.
Now, Mir. Editor, you have spok
en of this matter editorially and you
have said this prisoner was taken
from my deputy. I feel sure that you
do not. want to do me an injustice or
to be unfair in your criticisms. I do
not care to even appear to boast of
my record in the offlee of sheriff for
this county, but I can with truth say
that I have endeavored with all my
might to suppress lawlessness, and 1
can add that no prisoner has ever
been taken from me or my deputy,
and I doubt if any sheriff in the
State has arrested more criminals
than I have.
I have taken pains to give you the
details of this matter not only in jus
tice to my county, but to myself, and,
as you have always treated me with
so much consideration, I am anxious
that you should have the true facts.
M. M. Buford,
Sheriff for Newberry County.
