SWISSES APPEAL OF FLORENCE
i Reason to Rever-e Judge Men;minger,
Death in Chair

unjust charging- by Juage r

Big-ham was convicted of k-.ii , his
other L. Smiley Bigham the v iy
.currng near Pampiico oa J a u '
1921. He was charged with : ..
mrder of Smiley Bigham, his m -ti " .
Irs. L. S. Bigham, his sist.-r. M;..
Iargery Black, and Mrs. Bla?-i.'- '
dopted children, Leo and John M.-racken.
He has never been tvi ;
he killing of any members of
.'amil.\ except L. Smiley Bigham.
First Degree Verdict
JtS:gnam was convicted 01 muriu*i- ; .
he first degree and sentenced to d.z\pril
8, 1921. He appealed to the
supreme court and yesterday th: =
curt dismissed his appeal. Bigham
ias been in the death house at the
)enitentiary since a few days followng
Bigham will be carricd to Florence
.ounty at the next term of general
sessions court for resentencing.
The crime was one of the most revolting
in the history of Florence
ounty and great interest has been
:ept up in the ease. The first theory
advanced was that Smiley Bigham had
killed the m ambers of his family and
:hen committed suicide, but an investigation
resulted in the arrest of Edmund
Bigham and later his conviction.
After his conviction Bigham went
before the supreme court on a habeas
corpus proceeding, claiming that he
had never been tried, in that the Florence
court was unlawful due to the
fact that Judge Memminger continued
he court longer than the term whs
-upposed to have run. The supreme
' ourt dismissed this plea and Bighorn
hen went before the court in regular
ppeal at the fall term of 1921.
In the ooinion handed down by the
urt it is clearly stated that all of
' e objections raised are without
our.ds for reversing the circuit
