MR. EVANS WILL AGAIN

Dispatch From Columbia Says State
Will Ask Continuance-The Fel
The Columbia correspondent of the
News and Courirr seij* o his paper
on Tv.sday w'gbt a dispa:ch trr-i Co
lumbia, in which he stated:
"That 'Hub' Evans will not be tried
at the approaching term of court in
Newberry is the definite information
secured here tonight. Stories out of
Newberry were to the effect that
Evans may not be .ried, but the
information secured by this corre
sponcent is the first authorized state
ment that the case of the chairman of
the dispensary -board will not be con
cludei at this term of the court of
general sessions for Newberry.
"Evans is under indictment, charged
with accepting rebates while he was a
I member of the board. The indictment
was handed out last summer.
"It is learned that the btate will not
go to trial in this case. A continu
ance will be sought. One of the
grounds will be the allegation tnat the
death of G. H. Charles has changed
the complexion of the case and the
State can not go to trial at this time."
Statement From Mr. Evans' Attorney.
When asked by The Herald and
News what would be the disposition
of the defence in view of this state
ment from Columbia, riugene S.
Blease, Esq., attorney for Mr. Evans.
stated that the defendant would de
mand a trial, as he has done at eyery
term of court since the tra bill was
found. and would rely upon the order
passed by Judge Watts at the last
arru of court. At that term. Judge
Watts. upon the third demand of the
defendant for a trial,, passed an order
provid,ng that the case should be nol
prossed at the approaening term un
?ss the State should be ready to give
Evans a trial. At the last tQrm of
court the death of Mr. Charles, short
ly before the court, was the ground
:pon which the State asked for a con
tinuance. The complexion of the case
could rot have changed since tnat
time, so far as the death of Mr. Char
les wa:; concerned, said Mr. Blease,
because that was urs,eu aa - ground
for a continuance at that time.
The true bill against Mr. Evans wa
returned at the Jurne. 1910, term of
court. Mr. Evans immediately de
manded a trial, but a continuance was
granted on motion of the attorney
general. At the fall term and again
at the spring term this year. Mr. Ev
snas demanded trial, and both times
the case was again continued~ on the
attorney g.eneraI's motion. Upon this*
showing Judge Watts granted the or
der mentioned at the last term of
court, the State urging that it would'
have been ready, but for the death of
Mr. Charles, and that it would be nec
essary to surpply the link lost by his
The Story From Columbia.
The .Columbia correspondent/ of the
News and Courier goes on to say:
"Attorniey General Lyon was asked
about the matter this afternoon. He
had no statement to make for publi
cation. The statement was sought
from Mr. Lyon following a conference
he had with Solicitor R. A. Cooper.
Solicitor Cooper was asked whether
the case of Evans would be tried. He
replied: 1I think not.'
"All positions to be taken by the
IState in the request for a continuance
are not known at this time, although
the Charles death will figure and
probably other matters brought to the
attention of a circuit judge in the last
few days may play a part.
"It is known here that 'Hub' Evans
seeks a trial. He stated when in the
city yesterday that he was "demand
ing, a trial in the court, which has
been denied me, notwithssanding the
fact that the constitutio~n of both the
United States and my State guarantee
Ime the right of a fair, public and
speedy trial." Counsel for /Evans
stated at the last term of court in
Newberry that the indictment was be
ing held cver Evans as a 'lash.'
"I-t is also known that Attorney
General Lyo-n recognizes that the de
fendant has the right to a speedy trial
under the corstitution, but that it is
not believed to be to the State's besti
interests to try the case at this term
"From this end of the line the New
berry court. commencing Monday. is
of more than passing interest. Not on
ly will the 'Hub' Evans case be~
brought to some sort of head, but T.
R. Felde r will probably then be in
dce.A 'iispatch from Newberry to*
out of State papers says that Felder
ha.3 employed Newberry counsel.
employed Newberry counsel.
Tihe story in today's News and Cou
rier. that Felder would probaoly oe
indicted. crPated much interest. From!
the proper officials this story has been
verified today, and the list of witness
es to appear is correct. The-y are:
Governor Cole L. Blease, H. H. Ev
ans. John Bell Towill and L. W. Boy
kin. From Newberry the information
is that when counsel for H. H. Evans
pressed for trial at the last term
of the court. the presiding judge had
incorporated in his order that if the;
State were not ready this time. a nol
pros would be ordered. The law is
that if a defendant demands trial at
two separate terms of court. and the
State is not ready, the defendant shall
be released upon his own recogni
zance. In the Evans case the defend
ant is out on bond.
"It is known that Attorney General
Lyon does not believe this case er
others in similar situation can be nol
prossed, on the ground that, as was
the position taken here in the Black,
Towill. Boykin and Tatum cases a
few days ago. it is with the circuit
judge to say whether, in his discre
tion, a suitable reason has been given
for asking a continuance. In other
words. Mr. Lyon holds the belief that
each term of court is to take care of
itself. Solicitor Cooper was asked!
about the matter, and expressed the
opinion that the matter lay largely, if
not wholly with the circuit judge, in
"It can not be forecasted just what
will take place at Newberry on this
particular phase of the case, and. of
course, it is not known just how Ju.dge
Ernest Gary, who will preside, 'will
view the situation. The statement
from Newberry at the time of the last
term of court, and within the last two
days, is that Judge Watts said that the
prosecution must be ready at this
(June) term of court, or a nol prose
would be entered, and this is said to
be in the order passed granting a con
"The discussion of nol pros or no
nol pros is speculative solely, but the
assertion that the State will not be
ready for trial and will ask a continu
ance, is based upon absolute fa'ct."
A Shelter for the Mother Also.
Rev. A. . Cornish, rector of the
Abbeville Episcopal church is doing
a great work for the orphans. He
looks after several orphanages of his
own, situated in different parts of the
State. where he has provided homes
for the homeless..
In most of the orphanages the chil-!
dren of a family from which the fath
er has -been taken are admitted, but
the mother, if living, is not allowed
to enter the orphanage. Many moth
ers who have no means whatever of
providing for her children must send
them to orphanages or allow them to
suffer. She is thus deprived of their
companionship and no one but the
mother knows what this means.
Rev. Mr. Cornish takes into his or
phanages the mother with the chil
dren, where she is provided w-ith work,'
and taken care of. Mr. Cornish is a
man of most kindly heart and realiz
ing how hard it is for the mother to
live without her children determined
not to suffer them to be separated.
In this we think the other large and
rich orphanages might e.mulate the or
phanages instituted and operated by!
Mr. Cornish. He is doing a good
work and verily he shall have his re
ward.-Abbeville Press and Banner.

Church of the Redeemer.
(Rev. Edw. Fulenwider. Pastor).
Nothing preventing. the following
program of divine services will be ob
served at the Lutheran Church of the:
Redeemer next Sunday.
11.15 a. m.-The regular morning:
service. The pastor will preach a
short practical sermon on the sub
ject: "The Revelations of God Suited!
to the Needs of Life." In the Epistlei
less.)ii for the day Paul exl 0in's' "Oh,
the depth of the riches both of the
wisdom and knowledge of God!" The!
lEssons will be drawn from the con
crete example of Jacob. When fieeing
from his home he was not afraid but
lonely that night at Bethel. The fu
ture was dim and uncertain, and he
needed encouragement. God gave himl
the vision of the -ladder and angels.
Twenty years later on his way back
home with his family and fortune he
was afraid, and the angels of God
met him on the dusty road as war
riors ready to defend him. There is
no lesson so precious as this: "Liod
reveals Himself just as we heed Him."
