CHIEF JUSTICE AND
GOTERNOR SAYS CIRCUIT JUDGES
SHOULD GO TO CONWAY.
Chief Justice Says His Recommenda
tion of Special Judge "Is Con
clusive and Stands."
(Columbia Record, 25th.)
"Governor C. L. Blease,
"My recommendation is conclusive,
and stands. Ira B. Jones,
"Lancaster, Feb. 25.
Gov. Blease said Saturday that the
receipt by him of the foregoing tele-!
-gram was the latest development in
the situation relativ to the Horry
court due to convene Monday. The
recommendation referred 'to by 'the
chief- justice was that the governor
commission Mr. C. P. Quattlebaum, of
the Conway bar as a special ji-.ige to!|
preside at the Horry term on account!
of the illness of Judge Klugh. The:
court of general sessions is to sit for I
the first three days' of the week, the
court of common pleas for the last 1
three days, the same judge presiding 1
ever both courts.
Both Standing Pat.
Gov. Blease and Chief Justice Jones
.are both "standing pat" and the out
.come at present indicated is that there
will be no Court 2t Cnway.

No Special Judge.
Gov. Blease said that he had not
c6mmij3-sioned as special judge fo'r
the Horry court Attorney C. P. Quat
tlebaum, of Conway, whose appoint
ment was 'suggested by the Conway
bar and recotnmended by the supreme
efrt, because, as he had notified
Chief Justice Jones, Judge R. E. Copes
is disengaged, and because further
he had found, on examining the roster,
that Judge Memminger would also be
"It is the duty of the chief justice
In these circumstances," said the gov
ernor, "to assign to the term a dis
engaged circuit judge, instead of ask
ing me to commission a special judlge;1
and I do not propose to interfere with
Chief Justice Jones in the discharge
of his duty."
A Guess Hazarded.
The governor intimated that his
private and unofficial opinion was
that there would be no Horry court
because he believed Chief Justice
Jones would stand pat on his latest
position, that th~ supreme court's rec
ommendation for the appointment of
Mr. Quattlebaum is "conclusive and

As to the Richiland 'county court,
Governor Blease said he did not be
lieve the supreme court had any right1
to assign Judge Copes to pres'ide, upon
Judge Watts' departure. "Judge
Watts was assigned by the chief jus
tice,'. he said, "to hold this term and
my opinion is that when a conflict
with his own circuit necessitates his
departure, that causes the adjourn
ment of .the term. However, the assign
ment of circuit judges to the various
courts is a matter exclusively within
the province of the supreme court."
Another Week Needed.
Judge Watts, before leaving Colum
bia to hold court at Abbeville, in his2
own circuit, .made inquiry among the
members of the bar as to whether the'
public business required the continu
ance of the Richland civil court for.
another week, and being told that an
other week was needed, consulted
with Chief Justice Jones. The chief
* justice announced through Judge
WVatts that Judge R. E. Copes, newly
elected and qualified and at present
disengaged, would be assigned to pre
side for the remaining week of the

We are not going to pull Carpen
ter's hair, as suggested by the wicked
Greenville News, because we think 1
too much of him in spite of his stub
bornness about some things; but just
as he refuses to read the two sections
of the constitution relating to the sub
.ject of holding two offices he makes*
virtual admission that he has never
read the statute bearing on exemp
tions from jury duty. In the Daily
Mail of Friday he says: "So far as we:]
know, the law has never exempted <
newspaper men from jury duty. It'
has been the custom not to draw
no w men on the juries; but we 3

mistaken. This writer remembers to
have seen a test of this question in
11878, or thereabouts. Judge T. J.
Mackey was presiding over the court.
A case of sensational public interest
had been taken up, and the venire had
been exhausted without completing
the jury panel. Judge Mackey order
ed the sheriff to close the door and
proceed to summon talesmen from the
audience. A representative of the En
quirer was present to report the pro
ceedings, and the judge tried to put
him on the jury. The newspaper man
promptly claimed exemption under
the law, and the judge ;denying the
claim, the newspaper man showed
him the statute an.a maintained his
position. On realizing that he was
whipped, Judge Mackey contented
himself with declaring that although
the statute did except newspaper men,
It was an absurd statute and should
be repealed. However, the statute
[as not been repealed unless it has
been done by the present general as
;embly. See Sction 2935 of the 1892
Report of the Code Commissioner and
3ection 3704 of the 1910 report. But
say, Carpenter, the legislature that
passed this act may not have "intend
ed" to exempt newspaper men from
jury serlie and like those sections of
-he constitution in question, these sec
ions of the code may not mean what

The seventy-first anniversary of

P., held at its hall last night was
narked by two unexpected and pleas
Lnt incidents. The first was the pres
ince of Gov. C. L. Blease, a past grand
naster of the order, who delivered a
rery telling and effective, address to~
lis brother Odd Fellows. Gov. Blease
s among the most influential mem
ers of the order in this State. He
uas been accorded every honor which
iis subordinate as well as the grand
odge can bestow upon him, and he
uas worked zealously and efficiently
n behalf of the order.
The other incident was the presen
ation of a very ornate and handsome
~old past grand master's jewel to Past
Irand Master Harvey, who completed
iis term as such in the spring of 1910.

The Southern Power company is

E'he towers are put together on the

)ispensary Commission Will Report
qiuest Acted Upon.
Columbia, Feb. 24.-The State dis
>enlsary commission will explain all
>f its' transactions to Gov. Blease.
['his was decided at a meeting held
lere today. Gov. Blease said that he
vould not sign the act providing for
L commission to investigate -the com-j
fission until the members of the com-1
mission had given him the informa
tion asked for in a previous letter.
The commission held a long session
during the day at which time the re
port to Gov. Blease was formulated.
It is expected that the report will
be sent in tomorrow.
Governor Blease several days ago
asked that the meml:ers of the com
mission furnish him with details of
all of the transactions of the body
and also a copy of the contract with
the Atlanta firm of lawyers. Ander
son, Wilson, Felder and Rountree, and
B. L. Abney, of Columbia, and W. F.
Stevenson, of Cheraw.
Just why he has held up the act
has caused much speculation. Charles
A. Smith, the lieutenant governor and
president of the senate, before leav
ing Columbia, after the adjournment
of -the general assembly, appointed;
the three members from the senate to
make the investigation. Speaker Men
del L. Smith, of the house, did not ap
point his committee.
Each Waiting on Other?
Some think that Governor Blease
will not approve the act, calling for
the investigation unil Mr. Smith has
named the house members. Speaker
Smith, who - was here today, stated
that he would not appoint the mem
bers of the committee from the house
until the act had been approved. He I
does not think that he has the right
to appoint until the act has been ap

WINTHROP NOTES *
* * * * * * * * * * * **
Winthrop is now dive with dele
gates to the State Volunteer associa
tion, which is holding its meetings
here this week. The convention was
opened on Friday .eventng with a talk
by Dr. Reavis, of Nashville, Tenn.,
who has accepted the call to the Pres
byterian church of 'Columbia. His talk
was followed by an address by Dr. E.
H. Rawlings, of Nashville, Tenn.
Ellen Terry, who visited us on the
15th proved 'her right to 'hold her
world-wide reputation of lieing the
greatest living actress.
Dr. Jas. P. Kinard, head -of the Eng
lish department, and Miss Sarah
Withers, principal of the Training
school, have compiled an .English
grammar. Arrangements are being1
made for this book to be put before
the State board in order to introduce
it into the public schools.
We all agree that play is one of the
most pro.minent elements in human -
development. So it is very gratifying I
to us to be able to announce the ac
ceptance of this idea at Winthrop, and
that a,.play--ground for the mnill chil
dren, who have no such opportunities,
is to be conducted the>.e oy tnie seniors.
They are to introduce games and ex
ercises which will give these li,ttle
folks an opportunity "to acquire use
ful habits of conduct."
Perhaps it will be of interest to our
friends of the country to know that
272 Winthrop girls are farmers'
daughters. This show's, in a way, the 1
interest common to our college and
the rural districts.
