there are, who intend to contribute
to this fund that they will do so at
once. You may 'phone your name and

untary firemen in the purchase of the
wagon. You should remember that
wh6never the alarm of fire is sounded
the firemen promptly drop everything
they are doing and give their time to
save the property. They receive no
pay for it and it would be a nice com

EDMUND BOYD PARDONED.
He Defended Himself at TriaL-Xis
appropriated Church Funds.-"Up*
at a Little Board Meeting."
The Columbia correspondent'.of the
News and Courier under date May 3,
sent the following, showing that. Gov
ernor Ansel has granted a pardon to
a Newberry negro:
"Edmund Boyd, of Newberry, serv
ing three years, from November, 1908,
for breach of trust, had his sentence
commuted to June 1, 1910. Boyd's
case was rather unique. He was
charged with making off with the
funds of his church, about $36. He1
conducted his own defence and asked
the, witnesses questions. "They had
him up at a little board meeting,"
said one of the witnesses, "like black
people would do."
In an issue of The Herald and News
in 1908, giving an account of the
criminal court for Noveiber, the fol
lowing account is of the trial of Ed
Edmund Boyd, colored, was convict
ed of breach of trust with fraudule.t
intent, and was sentenced to serve
three years. 'Boyd was not represent
ed by counsel. It appears that the
members of Mt. Olive colored church,
through an effort of Magistrate Sligh,'
had collected $36.00 from certain par
ties who had been guilty of offences
on -the church grounds, the parties
paying money to Magistrate Sligh in
order to prevent prosecution against
Boyd, it was testified, secured this
money from Magistrate Sligh for the
church, and proceeded to spend it.
Boyd claimed that the members of
the church 'were afraid to take steps
against the offender, and had told him
that if he would do so he could have
what he got out of it.
