WEDNESDAY, October 30,1889,
Ex-Governor John L. Manning
died to-day at the home of his daugh
ter, in Camden. A public meetin
will be held to-morrow (Thursday
at noon in the court house, in respec
to his memory. A number of speeche
will be made.
FINEST FARM IN LANDS.
THE Tmu s has often spoken of th<
fine lands and magnificent natural re
sources of Clarendon county. In some
few parts of the county, as might nat
urally be expected, the lands are very
inferior, almostvalueless;in some parts
they are only tolerably fair; but it
other parts they have no superior in
the State. Right in the town of Man
ning we have some remarkably fine
land, but the finest lands, the lands
that have no superior in any part o:
the State, are to be found near the
Santee, and especially in that pat
known as the Summerton section. Al
though there are some highly culti
vated lands that produce large crops
in the Fork section, and so likewise
in the Wilson and Foreston sections
yet to one riding over the Central
railroad, these lands appear very in
ferior; and so they generally are jusi
on the railroad, which unfortunately
passes through some the poorer land
yet frequently in less than a -quarter
of a mile of the railroad as fine lands
are fo be found as one wishes to see
and in many cases where the lands
appearinferior, inreality they are good
lands but have been neglected.
General Stackhouse this past sum
mer formed his idea of our lands fror
a car-window view, and said they
were very inferior. A gentleman tool

miles. of the county, and he ther

Marlboro, and Capt. J. A. Peterkin
of Orangeburg, two of the most prom.

buying farms here, and they said they
have never in any part of the State
seen any superior farraing lands.

Charleston had a prize fight last
week~between Jack Donovan, of Neil
York, and -Layton, of Charleston
The fight took place on Camp Island,
a small island about eighteen milei
up the Cooper river, and lasted aboul
an hour. They fought thirteer

have gotten beastly mad with eacl
other, and to have beat up each othey
severely. About a hundred persons
went out to see the fight. The prizE

The Legislature at its next sessior
will probably have something to saa
about prize fights.
Had there been any strangers ii
town last Thursday, to hear Gov
Richardson's speech, they would cer
tainly have formed the opinion tha
since the town was founded, a thirc
of a century ago, our people ha(
been totally neglectful of educationa
advantagps, and that the school-hous<
was an unknown term. In his speedl
on the history of education in th<
State, he never once alluded to th<
fact that a school had ever beei
taught in Manning; whereas the fact
in the case are that during her entir,
history Manning has had good school
and fair educational advantages, somi
which have been fully the equal o
in the State.
oFlorence Times has been en
eto sixteen pages of six col
seach. It is too big for a coun
typaper, and will entail a certaii
and unnecessary loss on its pluck:
and progressive publishers. The pa
per was better before the enlargmen
than now, and we expect its reader
will be glad for it to change back t<
eight pages. The Florence Times i
orie of the best newspapers that corn

to see it published as a daily, and feE
confident if it were now publishe
three times a week, as a four page sis
column sheet, at say only $1.50 or $
a year, the puiblishers would mak
more money and giie more satisfac
tion. Friend Prince has been in the
business a long time, and is a first
class newspaper man, but we think if
he will accept our advice, publish his
paper three times a week, of four six
column pages, and charge $2.00 a
year, he will make more money and
give more satisfaction.
t. Matthews Herald, Geo. Just
Brown editor and proprietor, is on
our table. Mr. Brown has been iden
tified with the newspapers of Man
ning for the past twenty years, and
for four of those years was the effic
ient foreman of our office. We wish
him great success in his effort.
His salutatory has the true ring
To-day we launch the St. Matthews
Herald on the sea of journalism, and
in so doing, we have no misgivings as
to the success of our enterprise.
With a town full of enterprising citi
zens who have pledged their support
to the paper, and backed up by an
agricultural surrounding unsurpassed
by any town in the State, there is no
reason to fear failure. In fact, the
Herald does not recognize any such
word; but our watchword shall be
onward, upward, until it reaches the
proud distinction of being on an equal
with any county paper in the South.
The politics of the Herald will be
Democratic to the core. Always up
holding the principles of the glorious
old democratic party, but while doing
so, always endeavoring to be just to
our political opponents; "rendering
unto Caesar the things that are
Cesar's;" granting unto all men the
same Godgiven right that we claim
for ourselves, to have opinions, and
having them, to dare express them.
To those who differ from us, we
will use argument, not abuse; per
suasion, not "bull-dozing."
We shall endeavor to be always
found on the side of right and jus
tice, guarding the morals of the com
munity, and speaking out boldly on
any subject which affects the interests
and well-being of South Carolina, of
Orangeburg County, and especially
of the town of St. Matthews.
We shall work assiduously to build
up the business interests of our town,
by setting forth its many advantages
in their proper light, and in this we
will persevere, until St. Matthews
reaches the eminence which nature
has fitted her for,-that of one of the
principal business marts in South
The Herald is an eight-page six-col

type, and is full of live interesting

Court convened last Monday at 10
o'clock, Judge I. D. Witherspoon pre
siding, and Solicitor John S. Wilson
and Stenographer L. I. Parrott at
The case of B. S. Dinikins, charged
with housebreaking, was the first
called. The following jury, all white,
D. B. Davis, foreman, J. K31 Bar.
wick, J. N. Wh L. Graham, B.
-Herrrxgu~. P. Fulton, James
Plowden, T. Leslie Bagnal, W. P.
Roberts, J. H. Johnson, C. B. Cobia,
The State objected to J. J. Mitch
umn, and the defense to R. E. Smith,
E. B. Felder, C. L,. Morris, R. M1.
Brailsford, and G. R. Jones. Sam
Sparks wa~s put on his voir dire by the
defense, but he testified that he had
not formed or expressed any opinion.
We desired to publish the testimony
in this case in full, and early Mon
day morning applied to Stenographer
Parrott to know if he would furnish
us the testimony. He told us that in
case the judge or the attorneys in the
case did. not object, and if he could
get the time to make us a copy of the
testimony, that he would give it to
us. We asked the Judge if he had
any objections and he told us he had
none. We likewise saw Mr. B. P.
Barron, for the defense, and Solicitor
Wilson, for the State, each of whom
told us he had no objection. The
~stenographer then told us he would
give us the testimony if he could get
the time to copy it. A short time be
fore the testimony was concluded .we
got a note from the stenographer
that, "After conferring with the law
yers, Messrs. Rhame and Barron, I
have decided to furnish the testimo
ny to no one." Had Mr. Barron ob
jected when we first asked him, we
could have made other arrangements
for getting the testimony, but when
the objections were raised it was too
late for us to do anything. The pub
lic is thus deprived of reading the
testimony in the case.
Solicitor Wilson represented the
State, and Messre B. P. Barron and
J. F. Rhame the defense. The State
put about a dozen witnesses on the
stand. The strongest evidence in the
case was, (1) that Dinkins was seen
the night of the housebreaking with his
clothes soiled and his face in a sooty
condition. This was testified to by Mr.
F. N. Wilson, Mrs. F. N. Wilson,
Hurst, Stukes, and James; (2) that
he confessed the crime to F. N. Wil
son, claiming that he was drunk when
he did it; and (3) that a paper was
found in a pocket of a coat of Din
kins's, about 38 days after the house
breaking, which appeared to be a
combination of.a safe. It had on it
four different combinations, and the
State attempted to show that it had
Sbeen used in the effort to open the
safe, but that it was not the proper
combination. This paper had soot
and candle grease and finger marks
on it. Candles were found near the
safe, and tallow on the floor under
neath the combination lock.
-The defense put up no witnesses at
Mr. Barron made a speech for the
defense, Mr. Wilson for the State, and
Mr. Rhame closed for the defense. All
the speeches were able arguments,
Sand Mr. Wilson's was one of the best
he ever madk.
The case was given to the jury
about 5 o'clock, and in little more than
an hour they had agreed on a verdict,
which was, not guilty.
F The second case tried was that
1 against B. S. Dinkins for forgery. The
ury in this case was J. M1. Richard
son, foreman, J. M1. Davis, J. W.
Hudson, I. N. Tobias, R. R. Billups,
2 Jr., H. S. Dollard, G. R. Jones, J. M.
3 Barwick, D. B. Davis, B. P. Fulton,
. 'am Sparks, and J. G. Kolb.
The State objected to Leslie Bag
nal, and the defense to J. W. Weeks,
R. M. Brailsford, E. B. Felder, N. L.
Carraway, and J. E. Broughton. The
first witness on the stand was B. P.
Barron, Esq., who testified:
The alleged forged paper was in my
possession at one time, and was given
me by either Mr. I. I. Bagnal or Mr.
J. H. Lesesne. This paper was never
handled by me except as attorney and
counselor, and was never sent off by
me to any one for collection. I de
cline postively to answer any ques
tions relative to this paper, as I was
counsel for the defendant.
The effort of the solicitor was to
show that this paper was in Mr. Bar
ron's hands, and that Mr. Barron had
attempted to get it paid, and that the
paper had at one time got away into
another's possession. Mr. Barron
seemed much disturbed abont being
nut on the stand, considering it an
injustice to put the defendant's attor
ney on the stand. He declined to
testify whether he had the paper for
collection or not, or to tell who put
the paper in his possession. Later on,
he stated that by common consent of
his clients the paper came into his
possession. He considered the integ
rity of his life at stake in aswering
these questions. The solicitor asked
Mr. Barron: "Did not I go to your
office before the May term of court,
and say to you, that as solicitor I want
that paper and am entitled to it; that
I have been informed that the grand
jury will probably present Dinkins,
and if they do I will as solicitor be
obliged to bring an indictment against
him? And did you not tell me that
the paper was misplaced; that you had
searched for it but could not find it?
And did not I subsequent to this go
to you again, and ask if you had found
the paper, and you said to me that
Dr. Richardson had, to your great
surprise, brought the paper to you
and told you he had found it among
his papers, and did I not then ask you
for it, and then you told me that you
had given the paper to Dr. Dinkins,
with the remark that it had been your
observation that when a man bad a
paper that was liable to burn his fin
gers he had best destroy it. And that
you thought Dr. Dinkins had either
burned it or torn it up ?"
To this Mr. Barron said that he
The solicitor then with great em
phasis repeated the same questions,
and Mr. Barron reiterated the same
denial, and said "If you were to re
peat this question out of the court
house r'- The Solicitor interupt
ing said I am prepared to ask the
question any where or in any place.
Here the Judge interposed and said
he would preserve order. Consider
able excitement prevailed throughout
the court house. Mr. Barron then
came off the stand, and the Solicitor
insisted cn being allowed to go on
the stand and swear to the truth of
the statements included in the ques
tions he had asked Mr. Barron. The
Judge allowed the request, and So
licitor Wilson went on the stand and
swore to what he had said.
Mr. Barron then arose, and address
ing the Judge said: I do not mean
to reflect on the integrity of the gen
tleman, but say that his memory is at
The Solicitor then addressing the
Judge, said: I swear that my state
ment is correct.
Dr. Dinkins was then put on the
stand who testified: Mr. Barron did
not give me this paper, and putting'
aside hearsay I know nothing of this1
3. G. Huggcins testified: I did see
this alleged paper in possession of
my father, and I know it was given
to B. P. Barron for collection, and
he collected it too, a pretty good law
Mr. Barron was again put on the
stand and swore that wvher' the paper
came into his possession he was re
tained by Dr. Huggins and by. B. S.
Dinkins as attorneys. He could not
disclose anything without dishonor
to himself and his profession.
The Judge then decided not to
make Mr. Barron testify whathad be
come of the paper.
The Solicitor said he had ample
proof, in case the Judge would com
pel Mr. Barron to tell what had be
come of the paper, to convict, but if
he could not get this information
he would be compelled to noll. pros.
the case as he had, depending on the
statement of Mr. Barron, alleged in
framing the indictment that the paper
had been lost, and he could not prove
the contents of the paper until he had
proved its destruction.
The case was then nolL prossed.
During the controversies between Mr.
Barron and the Solicitor, the jury
was excluded from the court room.
Messrs. B. P. Barron, 3. F. Rhame,
and A. Levi represented Mr. Dinkins
in this case.
The other cases disposed of are:
Eliza Jane Hardy, housebreaking
and larceny. Not guilty.
Win. M. Butler, carrying concealed
weapons. Pleaded guilty and fined
Mack Bennett, larceny of live stock.
Guilty but recommended to mercf.
Isaac Butler, hog stealing. Guilty.
Ed Scott is now on trial for the
killing of Tom Pearson. The case
will probably be concluded to-morrow
