FAIL TO AGREE r
IN JONES CASE;
JURORS HOPELESSLY DiVIDED'
Nolle Prosequi Entered as to Other
Criminal Charges. Statement
Lancaster, March 23.?After being
out 11 hours, the jury which had been
trying the case of the state against
Charles D. Jones, charged with breach
of trust and misappropriation of
funds, at 4 o'clock Thursday morning
reported that they were unable
to agree and Judge Bowman ordered
a mistrial. The jury called for the
judge at 2:30 o'clock and announced
their inability to agree, but upon request
of counsel of defendant, they
were ordered to make one more effort.
They returned at 4 o'clock and
announced a hopeless disagreement.
Aftpr nrdpririp- a mistrial. thev
were discharged by the court. It is
said that the vote stood five for conviction
and seven for acquittal. This
trial is one of the five indictments
returned last week by the grand jury.
At a short session of the court this
^ morning, Solicitor J. K. Henry stated
that inasmuch as there were civil actions
now pending against Mr. Jones
involving the same matters embraced
~ f. ? 1 j_ 1 1_ x
m tfte nve indictments, ne tnougm 11
only fair that the state of South Carolina
should not interfere with the
freedom of Mr. Jones in defending
his rights in the civil actions. He
further stated that the defendant,
Mr. Jones, had demanded a trial of*
the criminal cases at this term and
that he always liked to give a defendant
a trial when he asked for it. This
had been done and resulted in a mistrial.
He thought now that it was the
duty of the state to entt-r a nolle
prosequi of these oases, wthout prejudice,
leaving them in abiyance until
the civil actions involving .he same
items had been disposed of, especially
as they would not be barre I by any
lapse of time. Accordingly he entered
a nolle prosequi, without, prejudice,
upon the record as to each indict
ment. This is merely a postponement
of the criminal nidtcrmen*, it :s said.

LJRGENT APPEAL COMES jj
FOR RELIEF JEWISH VICTIMS !
Charleston, S. C.?Never in the his-1 (
tory of suffering humanity has such .
i heart-rending cry reached our cars,
as that of the unfortunate Jewish vie- (
tims. The unspeakable horrors and '
antold crimes perpetrated against (
them in Russia, Poland, Hungary and
other European lands makes one's ]
liair stand 02: end. More than a milt"ion
men, women and children have
Deen done to death in the Ukraine 1
done, and of those who still survive, j
we may say with a reliable eye-1
witness: that if the ten plagues of
Egypt were multiplied ten fold, they ]
would not begin to measure the mis- ]
fortunes that have overwhelmed them. ' 1
To save alive those who have not (
yet perished from hunger, exposure
and disease, and to take care of the _
lundreds of thousands of the helpless ^
>.nd homeless orphans, it is necessary j
to raise a minimum of fourteen million
dollars ($14,000,000). The'.
Jews of America are doing the ut- ^

unfortunate co-religionists across the j
Atlantic. But the need is so great
:hat they find themselves compelled to ,
appeal to those who are not of their ,
faith. May we therefore ask you to j
appeal from your pulpit to the charit-,
able and generous of your congrega- (
Lion, to join us in this act of human- ^
ty, and help us save men, women and ^
,-hildren from perishing? Will you
not ask them to come forward with ,
their bounty and send us in their con- ,
Lribution before it be too late?
Thanking you for your kindness',

NE7/3ERRY COLLEGE BEGINS
The Newberry college baseball
team will open its 1922 season- next
Friday afternoon when the Columbia
South Atlantic league comes to Newberry
to stage a game with the Indians
at the College park. This promises
to be one of the best games of
the season. With the exception of
one mar., ai1 of the men who played
on the Newberry team in 1921 are
back again this year. The Indians
closed the ID21 season with an unbroken
string of fourteen straight victories
and with the team virtually intact
the Sall:e leaguers will likely
experience difficulty in winning Friday's
contest, if they win at all.
Luther is slated io occupy the mound j
against Zinn Beck's aggregation of j
professional ball tossers and this is j
additional assurance that it will prove
to be a great game. This tall Newberry
hurler is thought to as good
or even better than anything of which
the South Atlantic league can boast
in the pitching line, or he would not
be signed up to join Clark Griffith's
Washington Americans in June. Although
it will be Luther's first jame
of the season, h's showing against the
professionals Friday afternoon will
be watched with interest by the large
urowd which is almost certain to be
1 1 x J? ~ ~ ? i-l*
on nana to witness lug iuiucju
The game will begin promptly at)
4:00 o'clock, the price of admission
being 50 cents. If you have not
bought your ten dolter season
ticket to aid in financing the new
Tym., do it before the game. These
tickets are good for admission to this
big game between the Indians and
Zinn Beck's comers.
