This is one of ma:ny incidents wh'Ich
are related of the young soldier's
coolvness and courage and daring.
Following the war, Mr. Sch.umvert
went to Corenvagenl university. Den

sembly from 1884 to 1886, and in 188
he was elected solicitor of the ok
seventh judicial circut, comprising th(
counties of Newbeilry, Spartanburg
Laurens, Greenwood and Union. H<
was recognized as one of the ables1
prosecuting officars in South Carolina
and in the entire South. Absoluteb
fea1s in the discharge of his duty

and the great power of his eloquence
into play in every case which h

He slprved asi solicitor for edgbt
years, and then continued the practicE

Col. Schumpert was one of the ab
lest lawyers at the bar of South Caro
aina. He had a marked faculty fox
ssembling teistimony and grasping
:he essential points, without regard to
Jhe unessential details. He was a
powerful speaker-a true orator,
ogical and with an eloquence pos
Messed by few Tnen. His knowledge
f the law was thorough, and he was
student of human nature, and under
tood men. Combinin:g these qualities

Iat he was often called upon to act
L special judge. As a judge he was
Wam and dispassionate, seeking the
ruth of the cases waich came before
iim, and he always presided with
marked ability and fairness.
An incident is recalled of a special
ourt over which he presided Jn
9partanburg during the latter part of
:he year 1908. The intarest of the
ntire country was upon this court
or the reason that several companie
)f militia bad been called out to pro

hreatened to wreak summary ven
eance upon him. The jail had been

aied to try him, and Col. Schumpert
vas appointed special judge. The
-eo was brought into the court room
mnder military escort, and the sol
iers fl erl the court room to prevent
'ny demonstrationl. Judge Schampart
n a ringing address asked 'the militia
: withdraw, saying that be did not

south Carolina. "I want to appeal toc

at some lengh along this ie, comn
