"'unreported," but after examining
witnesses for something over four
hours they returned at 4.25 p. m. a true
hill against Frederick 0. Beach for assault
and "battery with intent to kill.
The case will be tried at the fall term
The charges against Beach resulted
from a mysterious attack on Mrs.
Beach on the night or .beDruary zi
last, in which her throat was slashed
with a knife.
At the time of the alleged assault it
was stated that Mrs. Beach was attacked
by an unknown negro, who had
come to the Beach home with a note
for a servant. Rewards were offered
for the apprehension of the supposed
negro assailant. Investigation by local
authorities resulted in the issuance of
a warrant, for the arrest of Mr. Beach.
At the time the warrant was issued
Mr. and Mrs. Beach were in Europe,
but bonds for his appearance were given
by friends here.
TOM WATSOX ARRESTED.
Tiolated U. S. Postal Laws, Charged in
Warrant?Hearing to be Held
Augusta, Ga., June 3.?Thomas E.
Watson, one time Populist nominee for
the presidency, now a member of the
Georgia delegation at large to the
Democratic National convention, was
arrested on a Federal warrant at his
home in Thomson, Ga., today, brought
to Augusta and put under a bond of
Mr. Watson anticipated the service
of the warrant, charging him with
sending obscene literature through the
mails in "Watson's Magazine/' and
had his automobile at the depot in
Thomson to meet United States Marshal
Marshal Stops to Dinner.
At Mr. Watson's home he played the |
part of congenial host to the marshal!
at a midday dinner, upon conclusion of j
which! Mr. Watson invited Marshal
White to drive to Augusta in Watson's
automobile, the invitation being accepted.
Upon their arrival at the government
building here?in a second auto-i
moble, Mr. Watson's having broken
down on the road?the former Popu-.
list leader was greeted with some !
cheering from about a hundred people
who had gathered in anticipation of
Goes Back Home.
Qualified bond ^vas arranged in the
sum of $500, preliminary hearing fixed
for Friday morning at 11 o'clock, and
Mr. Watson returned to his home this !
Mr. Watson's defence in the case
will be that lie published in his magazine

books, or repeated editions which were ;
copyrighted by the United States gov- I

LYON OX "LABEL" YERDICT.
Is Severe on Richland County Juries.
Says He Did Xot Expect Them
The following is from the Columbia |
correspondence of the Xews and Courier:
"I expected no other result; I never
expect a jtucmana couniy juryio con- .
vict after the experience I have had,!
no matter what the proof of guilt of |
defrauding the State in the dispen- j

Attorney General Lyon this morning
on the "graft" case results. In other
words, the attorney general is of the

State's case or how overwhelming the j
proof of guilt might be. He feels that'
he has done his duty in the dispensary i
cases and that the majority of the
people of the State will so judge.
The verdict of acquittal in the "label"
case saw the end of the so-called
"graft" cases, for, although there are
a few indictments pending against for- j
mer dispensary officials, there is no j
doubt but that there will be no more !

But no amount of physical suffering
can break a spirt as indomitable as
that of any man -who ever lived. The
fearlessness, the intellectual power,
the invincible will of Senator Tillman
are what they have always been. He
is a candidate for another term in the
senate. It should be^granted him. We
are sure his constituents feel, as the
country does, about the matter.
Xo legislator in the American con
gress is Senator Tillman's superior in
parliamentary knowledge, and grasp
of the practical workings of government.
Sprung from the people, heart,
brain and soul a man of the people beginning
against the handicap of great
odds, he fought his way ro the foremost
rank of orators, legislators, and
parliamentarians by sheer genius and

eighteen graduates of Winthrop college
tonight received their diplomas.
In addressing the class Governor
Blease, who spoke scarcely three minutes,
took occasion to say that he was
proud that he had been rhe friend of j
Winthrop and congratulated himself j
upon the fact that he did not veto the
appropriations for the two new buildings
now in the course of erection
here. Governor Blease said that South
Carolina had reason to be proud that
such a class as that of 1912 was being
graduated and that their influence
should be of lasting value.
