dishonesty of Miss Sheridan. the
events leading up to the affidavits,
came from Savannah. Ga.
From Ed H. DeCamp.
Under date of M1arch 28. 1911. Gov
ernor Blease received the following
from Ed. H. DeCamp, the editor of the
"Our mutual friend, MNr. J. L. V. -Mc
Craw, has requested me to write you
a fe,w lines in re the pettion for a
pardon of George Hasty, convicted of
the killing of M1ilan Bennett, in this
,County in December. 105. I have not
(:anged my mind as to the justice of
."he sentence imposed by the court;
-neithEr have T changed my opinion
that the indisoriminate use of the
pardoning power may have an ill
effect upon young men who are in
clined to be boisterous and rowdy
and who are likely to resent, all too
freely, an imaginary wrong or insult.
but since it is the general consensvs
of orinion of those who sat on the
jury that Hasty has suffered ample
punishment for his rash deed and, in
further view of the fact that he has
made a model prisoner, (so I have
been informed,) and there are, by all
sound reasoning. many years left for
him to live and. perhaps, repent of
his deed and perhaps become a good
,citizen and add to the betterment of
humanity, I can see no good reason
why you should not exercise the par
doning power in his behalf.
"With best wishes for yourself, I
.am, yours truly.

Looking into the muzzle of four

many names and many crimes, shad

Pinkerton men, and spotted yester

bissing an oath at his captors, and
adding. "Well, you've got me," fell'
into the hand,s of the law.
And after the manner of all good
cerooks, the fellow sealed his lips;
after the manner of full-blooded de
tectives, the Pinkerton men moved
quietly and quickly-so quietly that
nobody in the crowd noticed them
intil they had their man, then they
were off so quickly that the few who

ROW AT COLLECTON CHURCH.
-Alleged Attempt to Kill Or Horse
'News and Courier, 19th.
onsiderable excitement was caused
Smday afternoon at Grace Advent
chur'ch, three miles from Walterboro,
by an alleged attempt on thle part of
L. H. Zeigler to "kill or horse-whip"
-the minister, the Rev. J. J. Williams,
'according to a story from the Walter
boro Press and Standard.
From the reports, it appears that
Sunday afternoon, just after the regu
ia.r service and during the communion
service, L. H. Zeigler came to the
chuirchi, and going in the door threat
med to kill Mr. Williams. The door
was immediately closed, locked from
the inside, and Mr. Williams was spir
fted away by his friends.
The congregation was broken up
and a messenger was sent to the near
est telephone to call Magistrate Bry
an and Sheriff Fox. Mr. Zeigler be
ing very angry threatened to shoot
anyone who interfered with him.
When it was found out that the sher
iff had ben summoned, Mr. Zeigler's
son, Willie, went to his home, which
is a short distance from the church,
and returned, armed with shotguns
and pistol. Sheriff Fox and Magis
trate Bryan responded, but did not
reach there until the Zeiglers had
gone to their home.
The cause of the trouble seems that
Mr. Zeigler was incensed because Mr.
Will1ams had performed the ceremony
when his son was married a month
Monday morning Mr. Williams and
several of the officers and members of
the church came to Walterboro, anu
Mr. Williams swore out two warrants
against Mr. Zeigler and one against
his son, Willie. The preliminary
hearing will be held before Magistrate
Bryan at the court house Monday
morning at 10 o'clock. Mr. Williams
lemployed Howell & Gruber as his at
torneys. The Zeiglers will be repre
sented by Padgett, Lemacks & Moorer,
and J. S. Griffin, Esq.
