ONCE MORE W. T. JONES LOSES.
Attorneys for Defence GI.e Notice I
of Aothezr Appeal to Supreme
nion, June 25.-W. T. Jones has
n refused a new trial. Special b
e W. B. Gruber, presiding in the G
uit court for Union county,
afternoon handed down his de- V
on in this celebrated case, where- F
the 'defendant, convicted of the
urder of his wife, Marian Jones, is 1]
deAied the right to again present his r
defence to a jury of his peers. a
The application for a new trial af
ter the case had been heard by th' B
supreme court, and determined ad
Tersely to the defendant, is based up
on the alleged misconduct of certain
of the trial jurors, and further upon
allegation that material evidence,
unknown to the defendant, has been s
discovered since the trial of the
Decided by Judge Memminger. Is
Judge Gruber, in his decision,
which covers 12 typewri.tten pages, V
reviews at some length the testi- ti
mony introduced by the State at the
trial of the case. Coming to the C
points at issue in the motion before V
him, the judge holds, after review
_ig the proceedings before Judge a
Memminger for a new trial in this
case, that the queqstion as to the al- h
leged misconduct of some of the trial h
jurors was passeid upon by Judge h
Memminger, and that this matter is,
therefore, "res adjudicata," and that a
he has no power, if he had the in
clination, to consider this ground of
that motion for a new trial. r
The second ground upon which the
:mtion is based, that of after discov
ered evidence, is fully considered in
the decree. Judge Gruber points out C
that the after discovered evidenc -
must be material and that it. could
ave been discovered by the ex
of due diligence before the
VfhnLses Were! at Trial. 1
e then afiseiased the evidence a
ntd in the affidavits submitted I
e -defendant, in support of the
all f0P & neW triPi, And held that t
do not, in his opinion meet the E
rements; that he is not -convinc. c
at defendant could not have dis-: I
ed the evidence in time to use
tthe trial. He points out, also, y
some of the witnesses, whose h
mony is alleged to be newly dis- l.a
ered, were bound over to attendv
etrial, and others lived on W. T. j
Jones's place. The judge concludes by s.
rn'e-:ruling the motion on both v
The defendant's attorneys at once d
gave verbal notiee of an- appeal to
the supreme tourt. It is understood
that an order overruling such a mo
tion as this, addressed as it is to theS
iiscretion of the presiding judge, is
} appealable and may be reversed on
the ground that the judicial discre- t
tion has been abused.j

I were ornaments to the college, and
i were highly respected so long as our

The first president of the college was
Ia man from the North, so were two
of the first professors. But on one
occasion a Northern president under
took to criticize the students about
their views on the negro question,
and condemned in harsh terms, the
'institutions and political opinions of
Sth~eir fathers. At this insult the stu
-dents rose en mass from the least

ran the offensive professor out of thu

Poor Old Clnton.
In a fast and well-played game of
ball, West End defeated the Lydia tT
mill team on the latter's grounds at
Clinton on' Saturday afternoon by at
score of 3 to 1. This game keeps
Newberry's percentage at 1,000, with G
-eight games played. Tha features of Ia
the game were the pitching of Eid- e
son and Bailey, with the odds in fa- w
vor of Eidson. The Newberry twirl- Ul
er allowed only two hits, struck out te
six, and did not walk a man. Bailey T,
was touched for four hits and gave
free passes to two Newberrians.
The game was called in the sev
enth inning, a. delay caused by an
accident to Second raseman Jones,
of-West End, in the fifth inning, mak- ie
ing this necessary. The accident
was caused by a, collision between la
Jones and Bouknight, both of whom
were after Beacham's- fly to short B
rightfield. Jones suffered a severe
injury on the head, and it was at first
feared that the skull was fractured.
He is, however, resting 'sasy under
the care of Dr. P. G. Ellesor, and no
serious results are 'feared.
