NO SPECIAL TERM.
In Sam Boozer Case-Mr. J. R. Gil
liam Writes Solicitor Sensible
Solicitor Cooper was in Newberry
on Tuesday afternoon to confer with
some of the citizens and to look over
the situation as to the advisability of
requesting the governor to order an
extra term of th-e, court of general ses
sions for the trial of Sam Boozer. col
ored, and Mr. J. C. Hipp, charged with
the killing of Mr. J. S. Gilliam on
the 3rd of March on Mr. Hipp's Old
It will be recalled that the case was
not tried last week on account of the
illness of Mr. G. G. Sale, who had
been appointed by the court to defend
Boozer, as he was not able to employ
counsel. The governor received and
gave out for publication an anony
mous letter from Newberry asking
that a special term be ordered to try
this case and intimating that Judge
Watts continued the case because of
fear of some of the attorneys engag
ed. Of course there is no foundation
for any such statement and there
seems to be no demand for an extra
court to dispose of the case. The
Herald and News has talked to some
of the citizens of the community in
which the crime. was committed and
the sentiment seemed to be against a
Solicitor Cooper received a letter
from Mr. J. R. Gilliam, a brother of
the dead man, which is printed in this
connection, which is a* fair and just
exposition of the situation. Solicitor
Cooper mailed a copy of this letter to
Gov. Blease and stated that in the
circumstances he did not deem it ad
visable to ask for an etxra term of
The following is Mr. J. R. Gilliam's
letter to Solicitor Cooper:
March 28, 1911.
Hon. R. A. Cooper,
Solicitor ' 8th Judicial Circuit,
Laurens, S. C.
Dear Sir: Referring to the matter
of having a special term of the court
of general sessions ordered for this
county f.r the purpose of having tried
the case of the State vs. Sam Boozer
and J. C. Hipp, charged with the mur
der of my brother, Mr. J.- S. Gilliam,
I desire to say that, after thinking
well over the subject, and after hav
ing consulted with several of our
leading citizens, I have determined to
write to request you not to requ'est
the govei-n'or to order the court.
Speaking for myself and the other
brothers and sisters of the late James
S. Gilliam, I want to si,y t'hat all' we
want in this case is D .r the defend
ants to be tried in accordance with
the law of the State, and in the usual
~manner of having such cases disposed
f. We do not ask any special favor
from any of the authorities. We feel
that at the proper time a-. court and
Jury will do what is right, and if the
guilt of these men is established by
the evidence, that a righteous verdict
and just sentence will be had.
We regret that some one has seen
fit to send an anonymous letter to the
governor. Doubtless the sender of
the same was a friend of ours and of
our dead brother, but we think that
he erred in writing as 'he did. We
are sure that Judge Watts is afraid'
of no living man, and we know he did
what he considered right and just
when the case was before him last
week. 'While we we're diisappointed
that the case was not called for trial.
we can not attach any blame to either
the judge or yourself.
As there will be a court in June,
and as a -special court could not be
had until May, we do not see the nec
essity of a term before the regular
term. Then, too, a special term in
May would come at a busy time with
our farmers, who usually are jurors,
and the county would be put to large
I wish to thank you for your state
ment that you will call the extra court
if we desire it, and I wish also to
thank Governor Blease for his state-'
ment that he is willing to order the

J. R. Gilliam.

FOR A PAID SECRETARY.
Committee Appointed to Solicit Funds
to Employ Regular Secretary
for Chamber of Commerce.
At a call meeting of the chamber
of commerce, held in the rooms of
this organization on last Tuesday
evening, it was decided to make a de
termined effort to secure for the
chamber, and for the town, a paid
secretary, who will devote all of his
time to the interests or the town and
to the upbuilding of the chamber. On
motion of Mr. Clarence Summer, one
of the board of governors, it was de
cided that the presicent should ap
point a committee or five, who, acting
with, and under the instructions of
the governors, wourd make a thor
ough canvass of the town, with the
purpose of securing the necessary
funds that would insure to Newberry
a hired secretary. Merchants, cor
porations, farmers, and in fact, every
one interested in the welfare of our
town shall be expected to contribute
to this cause, and in doing so, remem
ber that this is not a movement that
will help any especial business or en-.
terprise, but one for the upbuilding
of our town-of your town.
Another matter brought up before
the meeting was increasing the pres
ent membership. Although the mem
bership was tripled during the last
year, yet there is no reason we should
not increase, even this splendid
growth. In disposing of this matter,
each member present pledged himself
to secure at least one new membe'
during the coming month, and upoi

was instructed to notify. every mem

present, and ask them to "fall in
