61RAND JURY PRESENTMENT.
The Grand: Jury present cogent
epsons for the abolishment of the
Trial Justice system, and we hope
our Delegation will consider carefully
atpft of their, report. It is ap
parnt b every observer that Trial <
-s i Clarendon County, as a
whole, are an ignominious failure.
3eoentevents have disclosed the fact
that more than one of these oositions
are occupied by men whose ignorance
.an-only be compared to the contempt
and ridicule measured to them and
their Court These men are only
nowu in the Courthouse by the
County Commissioners and Treasurer,
before whom they regularly appear
- asbare of the County funds. Yet,'

The statements aztd eharges made by the
,nterprise in regard to the said examinatiun
re quoted and oorrected as follows :
(1) "Tne examination did not begin un
il Friday afternoon."
The er'amination was somewhat delayed
a account of the illness of the Chairman of
he examining board ; but Dr. J. S. Brock
ngton, medical examiner, began the physi
al examination about 10 o'clock, A. M.. and
he applicants commenced the written ex
mination before 12 M.

llen, the Chairman of the board, who was
(3) "Undue partiality was shown in favor
>f one of the applicants, in one instance go
ng so far as to suggest the re-writing of a
art-of the examination paper."
What the classic Entcrprise means by "un
lue partiality" I shall not attempt to di
rine ; but the charge that partiality was
;hown either contestant is false. I suggest
d to the young men, when about to begin
heir work, that they write their answers
Irst on scrap-paper and afterwards copy
hem on the papers to be submitted us. No
usistance was given either youth in answer
ing the questions placed before him. At
he request of one of the.o, I explained the
meaning of a certain question. Mr. Haynes
orth was then present. No ther of the
ipplicants was alone with nie during the
xamination, and each heard what I had to
say to the other.
(4) "The examination papers were exam
ined by the board separately, and a different
result 'was reached by the two examiners-"
The result as aertained by each exam
iner was the same, superiority being by
,ach accorded the same set of papers. I
made a cursory examination of the papeyI
immediately upon receiving them, and while
mbject to interruptions by .pershns coming
into the office where I was engaged 'in the
prosecution of my duties, I then enclosed the
papers to Prof. Allen, with anote stating my
tindings. That evening I went by request
to Prof. Allen's, for the purpose of a joint
xamination of the papers and a decision as
toi 'r relative merits. Prof. AUert said he
thougat I had rated both applicants a little
too high. We then went into a carefui and
complete examination of the papers, which
resulted in a lower grading of each, but
with about the same proportionate diffi'rence
between them as had been determined by
my first examination. These last ascertain
ed gradings were sent the Citadel authori
(5) "Near the close of . t. examination
when one of the candidates acknowledged
his inability to answer a certain question
correctly, while the other asked for a longer
time in which to answer the question, Mr.
Chandler peremptorly closed the examina
tion, on the ground that it would-be giving
the latter appliant an advantage over the
former not to close the examination then."
The examination was closed after having
given the applicants more than ten hours
in which to answe: the questions. The
adjournment over night I regretted, but it
oould not be avoided. Arithmetic had been
disposed of the first day, and both appli
cants had failed to do one example given
the extraction of the cube root of a common
fraction. Had either done this example
ext morning, he would.not have been cred
ited with it, as access meantime might have
been had to textbooks, or assistance other
wise obtained. Some time before closing
i stated to the contestants that I could allow
them to work only a sihort time longer.
When that elapsed I must close. Both fin
ished within the time, and just did finish,
one a little before the other. One asked if
there was ti:Dme to ty the example above re
ferred to again. OfecourselIdid not allow,
bim to do so. Each appeared fully satis-'
Bed with his treatment at my hand.
SMr.Nettles must allow me to question the
motives for his attack. I .am ::redibly in
formed that he predicted the success of one
pplicant before trial. He exhibited preju
dice in-favor of that applicant, who received
instruction in Mr. Nettles's academy. He
has published reflections upon one unknown
to him, azid these are based uponx evidence;
from one side: only. A "born examiner"
should look better" o-i foundation for
itatements. He has evidently not sought
the truth in this matter of the comnpatitive
examination. Errors may have been comn
utted in the examination, but some things
ire more'eulyable than errors.
