STATEMENT FROM MB. REID.
Magistrate Says Grand Jury Was Mis
informed as to His Action in
Mose Farrow Case.
Chappells, S. C., Dec. 5, 1910.
Mr. W. H. Shelley, Foreman Grand
Jury, Newberry County.
Dear Sir: Upon reading the present
ment of the grand jury for the fall
term of 1910, as published In the coun
ty papers, I was astounded at the
statement made upon Information re
ceived concerning the settlement of
the Mose Farrow case.
Now the facts in the case are as
follows: Some time during Septem
ber, 1910, one Lee Spearman, came to
my office and swore out a warrant
against one Mose Farrow, charging
him with being drunk and disturbing
the peace of religious service at Little
River church in August, 1910. The
warrant was placed in hands of Spe
cial Constable J. W. Darnell, for exe
cution, the regular constable being
absent at the time. Before the day
set for trial of the case Lee Spear
man, the prosecutor, withdrew the
warrant, stating that the case had
been settled out of court and among
themselves. I had nothing whatever
to do with the settlement, knowing
nothing of it until request was made
to withdraw warrant, nor did I re
ceive one cent in pay either directly
Your reliable informer has misrep
resented the case entirely either
through ignorance or with the malic
ious intent of reflecting on me, rath
er than a desire to see justice done.
It Is to be regretted that any person,
no matter bow unfriendly should be
the feeling existing, would willfully
make a charge of so grave a nature
until they were positive of the truth in
I feel that a great injustice has been
done me and in further proof of the
case above referred to I w2l submit
to the solicitor certain affidavits of
repitable persons who were present
at the settlement of case outside of
my court, who tetsify that I was not
connected in any way with settlement

A VAST PAGEANT OF EMPIRE.
Plans for the Crowning of King
George Next June.
It is probable that London will
scarcely be able to accommodate all
the visitors who will crowd into this
city next summer, for there has been
arranged a round of festivities in con
nection with the coronation of King
George and Queen Mary that will
draw people from all the ends of the
Although nothing official regarding
the exact date of the coronation has
been announced it Is generally ac
cepted that it will take place in the
week commencing June 18, probably
on Wednesday, June 21. Already the
arrangements are wdll in hand. It is
to be made a vast pageant of empire
in which all the overseas dominions
will take part.

tingent of .troops and the procession

Record crowds of visitors are ex

been -engaged at the big hotels and
hundreds of passages have been book

The route of the coronation proces

than 10,000 persons and other big
schemes of a like kind are in contem
The people who are booking seats
thus early are not all residents of this
country. From all quarters of the
globe Inquiries are arriving asking
for the best positions. Before the end
of the year It is probable that 100,W0
places will have been engaged. A dl-.
