SHERIFF REFUSES j
TO OBEY ORDERS
KEEPS PRISONERS IN HOME
' T ^
Beaufort Becomes Aroused Over
Slaying of Aged Man and
t Meeting Is Held
Thfc State. ;
Beaufort, Aug. 10.?A mass mooting
that crowded the court house tonight
vofced to instruct the chairman
to appoint a committee of three citi
* zens to collect, prepare ana present
evidence against Sheriff J. H. Baley
b&fore the grand jury. This grew
* out of his refusal and failure to place :
Ralph E. Brown hi jail as directed
f in the coroner's commitment, which
found at the inquest yesterday that,
Brown killed T. P. L. Bettison. The
vote was unanimous except for a
brother of Brown.
The sheriff kept the prisoner at his
home while the law requires he be
put in jail. Early in the afternoon
over 100 citizens met and sent a
committee to the sheriff asVing him
to. meet with them and explain his
action, rnis ne reiusea to uu. oulieitor
Murdaugh was on his way
from Hampton and the meeting wa.
adjourned to the evening. The solicitor
was preseat then and advised :
with the meeting as to the sheriff's
action. Just before the evening meeting
the sheriff placed his prisoner in
' jail, but again refused to attend the
, meeting. Condemnation was ex- ,
pressed at the feet that the sheriff's
iPttorney and advisor is the attorney
for the defense in the case against
ihrown. " i
Condemnation of the city government
for alleged leniency toward <
Brown in former difficulties was gen- <
eral, and a motion was carried, 89 to ;
38, asking for-the resignation of the ;
three commissioners, over two-thirds ,
refraining from voting on this -issue
owing in part to the absence of the
mayor. Many women attended and ,
voted. Intense- feeling was manifest- j
ed in the applause and speeches but
the best of -order was maintained. ;
The committee sent to the sheriff
was- Alan Paul, L. H. Hall and Gus (
Sanders, county treasurer. Niels
Christeo^n was cfc&irman of the
meetingte and Alan Paul secretary.
J. H. Bellamy and William Alt- ,
^ian. made the motions that carried.
The solicitor has .refused to consent
to a request for bail for Brown.
In the news account sent out yesterday
it was stated, that Bettison
was killed while seaed. A further
examination of the testimony shows
that at the coroners inquest no direct
evidence was presented to that
effect. Brown claims self defense
in his request for bail.

of T. P. L. Bettison, whose tragic;
death was reported yesterday, wasi
held- this afternoon at the Baptist]
