WIFE SLAYER ACQUITTED.
Negro Quickly Found Not Guilty by
a Columbia Jury.
Columbia, June 6.--"'There is no
higher law than the law of South Car
olina, which I have just tried to
These were the words of Judge Dan
tzler this afternoon in concluding his
very forceful charge in the case of
John Jacobs, colored, tried for the
murder of his wife, but which fifteen
minutes after the Judge's impressive
words were spoken, the jury returned
a verdict of not guilty, evidently bas
ed on the unwritten law.
The verdict was greeted by ap
plause from the large crowd of neg
roes present, but this demonstration
was quickly suppressed by the Court.
Jacobs started out of the Court
House, but Judge Dantzler iromptly
ordered the sheriff to keel) him in
custody, as Jacobs killed two persons,
and wastoday tried for killing only
one of them.
One Saturday night last month Ja
cobs went to his home in Waverly
and found his wife asleep inl bed with
Will Johnson, a negro man. Jacobs
took a hammer and crushed the skull
of each, as they lay in their guilty
slumber. lie then went to the house
of his employer, i negro carpeniter,
and informed him of his deed and
proceeded to the police st-ation, where
he gave himself up. The woman was
killed ins-tantly, and Will Johnson
died two days later.
A plea of temporary insanity was
entered for Jacobs by his attorney,
whon the negro was put on trial to
day for the murder of his wife. The
prosecution sought to prove that Ja
oobs had not been living with his
wife, and that lie had not been faith
ful to her. It was also brought out
that lie had gone into the house
through a window with the hammer,
although lie did not know of John
son's presence until after he entered.
In his charge Judge Dan.tzler gave
no aftention to -(he plea of temporary
insanity, but clearly stated the legal
definitions of murder and manslaugih
