The remittitur from the State su
preme court, which had confirmed
the verdict and sentence of the court
of general sessions for this county,
was received by Clerk of Court Peake
yesterday morning. That officer
proceeded to make a certified copy of
the verdict and sentence of the cir
cuit court, which would have been
sent to the penitentiary authorities,
today, and an officer would have been
sent from the penitentiary to convey
Jones to that institution. This is the
regular and orderly procedure in such
The order of Judge Sease stays this,
however, until Saturday next, at least,
at which time the attorneys will ap
pear before the judge for a hearing.
The affidavits upon which the. order
is based have not been filed, and their:.
nature or by whom they are made is
not known. The order recites, how
ever, that affidavits have been sub
anitted to the effect that there was
misconduct on the part of jurors who
tried the case, and further, that
claim is made that there is after dis
covered evidence, which maay effect
the merits of the case.

attorneys for Jones intended making
further efforts to prevent his going

JONES LOSES AGAIN.
Judge Sease Revokes His Stay of Sen.
tence-Lawyers Are Dis.
Spartanburg, May 14.-Judge T. S.
Sease this morning revoked his order
of May 1L. -which was to the effect
that execution of the sentence of life:
imprisonment against W. T. Jones of C
Union county, convicted of wife mur
-der, be restrained until a hearing
could be had -by the court of a pe
tition for a new trial. The matter I
now stands as it was before Judge C
Sease issued his order of May 11.
The order was revoked principally
on the ground that Judge Sease, as*"
solicitor, had been the prosecuting at-*
torney for the State against Jones.
Ju'dge Sease this morning turned
/ hlis order over to George Johnstone
and Jas. Munro, attorneys for W. T.
Jones. Messrs. Johnstone and Munro.
had brought the deputy clerk, Grady
Allee1 of UTnion ounty, along with ~
them, and as soon as Judge Sease
asked if he would send the order to
the clerk of court of Union county, ~
someone said "here is the .deputy
clerk, he will take charge of it." The
deputy clerk took the petition and
-placed it in his pocket.
- Though he had the court's permis
s.ion, when a reporter asked to be al
lowed to make a copy of the paper, he
was discourteously refused the priv
ilege by Mr. 1Li. iro.
Shortly after the hearing Jones'
attorneys and the deputy clerk of Un-'
ion county put out across country in
an automobile. It was reported that
they were going to take a near cut
to another judge.
Unless Jones' attorneys get another
-judge to issue an order or some -newt
I:motion is made before the supreme
.court meets Monday, Jones will have
to begin at once upon his sentence of
