Last week we stated briefly that the jury had
rendered a verdict of guilty in the case of
Edmund llrlladay (colored) charged with
the murder of John W. DuBcse (white.)
coNvICT'ED OF MURDER.
The testimony in this case showed that
on the 24th day of No'enber last, at Leses
ne's gin house at Paeksville. Edmuna H1olla
dav and John W. Dulose had some hard
words, whereupon DuBose drew a knife on
Holladay, at the same tiic backing away
from him. Holladay then went into a room
occupied by Warren Birgess, and while
there ate his lunch. When he finished his
lunch he walked out of the room, approach
ed Dulose, and demanded an apology or
having been cursed by him.
DuBose refused to apologize; Holladay
then drew his pistol and advancel on Du
Bose, who was backing into the gin house.
Mr. W. T. Hill, the engineer at the mill,
rushed between the parties to try to prevent
the difficulty; lHolladay pushed him aside
and fired, striking Duiiose in the left arm,
the ball passing through the arm into the
body under the anru 1pit, and thence through
the left lung. At the crack of the pistol
DuUose fell forward on his face upon a
platform, and rolled off a distance of six
feet to the ground. As Holladay shot he
remarked, "Let him roll, damn him "' and
told one of the witnesses that he shot to
kill. He also told the constable that brought
him to jail that "he would have felt jnusti
fied in killing DuBose forty-eight hours at
terwards, because DuBose had drawn a
knife on him."
All through the case the attorney for the
defendant did not lose an opportunity to
make a point for the benefit of his client,
and when he went to the jury he made an
eloquent appeal for the prisoner, but as the
testimony was so weighty against the pris
oner, the solicitor had comparatively an
THE DEATH SENTENCE.
An immense crowd gathered in the court
house Friday morning to hear the death
sentence passed. His Honor told the pris
o er to stand up. At this juncture the at
torney for the prisoner made another effort,
this time in the shape of a motion for a new
trial, but the Judge declined to grant the
motion. He then proceeded with the formal
question, "Edmund Holladay Dave you any
thing to say why the sentence of the court
should not be imposed "' The prisoner hav
ing said nothing more than what he said
on his arraignment, which was not guilty,
His Honor proceeded to the solemn duty of
sentencing the prisoner. In his remarks he
told the prisoner not to allow himself to
give way to any dreamy-hope of getting re
piieved or of getting his sentence comaut
ed, because from the evidence adduced it
would not be likely that the governor would
interfere with the verdict or the sentence of
the court. He advised the prisoner to de
vote his remaining days to seeking pardon
from Him who alone has the power of par
doning from his terrible sin. He then de
livered the following sentence:
"It having been solemnly demanded of
the prisoner at the bar if he hath anything
to say why sentence of death should not be
passed upon him, he saith nothing farther
unless as he bad before said. Wherefore, it
is considered by the court and pronoaonced
as the judgmetit of the law, that the said
Edmund Holladaiy be taken hence to the
place whence last he came, there to be kept
in close and safe custody until Friday, the
24th day of April next; and that on said
Friday, between the hours of ten in the
forenoon and two in the afternoon, he be
taken to the place of execution in this coun
tv, and there be hanged by the neck until
is body be dead. And may God have mer
cy on his soul."
During the judge's remarks, which were
delivered in a most touching and solemn
manner, the crowded court room was filled
with a death-like silence, and the eyes of
many were moist, while some shed tears.
The prisoner throughout this solemn scene
stood up like a statue, looking directly into
the eyes of the judge, listening intently,
bat not a muscle of his countenance moved,
nor did he show the slightest indication
that he realized the awful doom awating
him. As soon as the senten ze was passed
the prisoner was taken back to jail and
placed in the dungeon where he was chained
to the floor, and will remain that way until
the hour of his execution.

John A. Ward was next tried on the charge
of murder for the killing of Henry WV.
Shorter. The case was commenced Wednes
day afternoon and concluded Thurs~day
night. Thiroughout the entire hearing of
this case the court room was crowded with
spectators listening to the testimony. It
was clearly evident that public sentiment
was in favor of the prisoner.
TESTDIoNY FOR THE STATE.
The witnesses for the State testified that
on the night of the 30th of September last
Charles Shorter went to the store of Benja
min Ward, a son of the prisoner, and
while there became involved in a quarrel
with one Bryant, who struck Shorter on the
head wvith a weight. After Charley shorter
left the store some one went to the house of
Henry Shorter and informed him that his
brother Charley had been killed at John
Ward's house. Henry at once started to
Ward's house in search of his brother, but
when he arrived there Bryant had justit.
Henry Shorter started in pursuit of Bryant,
but John A. Ward called him back and ad
vised him not to make any pursuit. Shorter
returned and wanted to know where his
brother was and who struck him, but no
one could tell him. He then went in search
of his brother, and finding him returned to
Ward's house to fight. Charley Shorter had
a gun with him. Doe Dyson, who was with
the Shorters, made a ring, and Henry
Shorter told Char'ley-to get into it and light
any two of the Wards that would cm out.
Mrs. Ward came out of the house and
threatened to shoot the first man that put
his hands on her son. There was consid
erable cursing and vile epithets used by
both sides d iring the whole time. The
Shorter party finally went away, going down
the road, but Henr-y and Charley Shorter in
a short time went back to Ward's. Ten or
fifteen minutes after their return, while
Henry Shorter was in front of and near the
front gate, he was shot by John Ward, who
was standing in the back part of his house.
At the time he w'as shot he was in his shirt
sleeves, unarmed, and was holding his
hands up over his head.
The shooting took place about three
o'clock in the morning, and Shorter lay
where he fell until some time after day
light, when he was attended by Dr. Badger,
and afterwards taken to his home and there
remained until he died sonic six wveeks
later. The fatal itnjury was intlicted by one
small shot that entered the eye and pene
trted the brain. All parties were drinking
whiskey, and Benj Ward kept a supply of
whiskev for sale in the little store in his
father's~ yard. and the whiskey obtained
from this little depot of damnation wvas
probably the prime cause of the killing.
The above is the substance of the testi
mony adduced by the State.
TEsTDIONY EOE THE DEFENSE.
The witnesses for the defense testified
that Charley Shorter wvent to the house of
John Ward about eight or nine o'clock and
asked for Ben WVard, and upon being told
where Ben Ward wvas he went to him, and
in a short time a ditliculty occurred between
Chaley Shorter and Dick Bryant; Shorter
vas struck with a weight. John Ward and
his wife furnished him with wvater and a
towel to wash the blood from his face.
Shortly after Henry Shorter came on the
premises, and was wild with anger, using
all kinds of oaths and insulting epithets.
Ward, who was just recovering from a spell
of fever, went out to him and begged that
he go home. He went off, but soon came
back with his brother Charley and Doe Dy
son. T1his time he also had a gun ,and was
more insul.ing than he was at first, not on
ly cursing Ward and his wife, but cursing
with the vilest liinguage imuaginable the
dead fatr and mnother of John Ward.
TIhey also said that they proposed to kill
two of the Wards and had the money to pay
for it, and defied the Wards to conme out to
*ight them. This cursing was done in front
of Wards house, in the hearing of his wvife
and daughters. Ward and his wvife begged
that they would go home and leave them
aone, as they had a very ill child in the
hous', and the loud talking kept it awake
and nervous. The only reply that they
woald get from the Shorters was a volley of
the iithiest kind of oaths.
Dow teroad they- went again and yell
ed for the Watds to go to them to fight.
They trampled the cotton in the fields antd
ventt on like maniacs. Seeing tiiat the
IWards wvould not go to themu they wvent back
to the house and repeated their former bit
ter de nunciations and threatened to kill the
first nman, woman, or child, that would ap
pear in the door way.
Ward then got hisgun anl shot. 1le sat
that he did not know what moment the par
ties would tire into his house, and that he
fired the gun. not with the intention of kill
ing any one, but with the hie that it
would friglaten themia away, so that he an,l
his ihmily a:ight be at pVace.
THE (AsE TAEN To TR.U.1tIY.
The case took up the whole day, and at
the conclusion of the testimonay -M. C. Gal
luchat, Esq.. who was emnployed to assist
the solicitor, went to the jury with the first
argument. le spoke about thirty mairmtat
sumnaing up and conam-uting on the t.sti
mony. His speech was one of the ablt,
arguments he ever mande, andt' would have
done credit t, any bar.
A Levi, Es., tie attoiney for the defend
ant. then fofllwed inl a spetch about ifteen
mir.utes in lngth. Ilis remarks w-re car
nest and eff-etive. lie brightend up thw
weak points of the te-tmour and madt
very conspicuous those which favored
defendant. le suoke as one cniu011S f
having right on Lis side. His poration
was beautiful and touching, and brought
tears to mianv eves.
As soon a- Capt. lvi tfinished Solicitor
Wilson went to the jury and took up the
whole testimnoriv from Ib:-uging to en.1
He spoke wore than two hours, and during
his speech a good many in the audiee be
lieved that the jury would find a verdiCt of
manslaughter. His argu.inmnt was able, and
one of his best efforts.
Then calme the charge of the Judge, who
explained the law thoroughly, making it so
plain that any man of ordinary sense could
comprehend him, and at the samie time not
giving the slghtest evidence which way he
was leaning. His charge is said to have been
the clearest and finest ever delivered in this
court house. In the course of his charge lie
complimented the attorneys for the able
manner in which they land conducted their
respective sides. The jury retired and re
mained out about twenty minutes. They
then returned with a verdict of not guilty.
It is said that a few of the jury at first
thought a verdict of manslaughter should
be rendered, but that upon second consid
eration these agreed with the majority that
such langu age and condact before any man s
house and taiily was unbe-rable.
When the clerk read the finding of the
jury the prisoner turned to the writer, and
v;ith voice full of emotion anad tears in his
eyes said, "Thank God !" An order was at
once issued for the discharge of the prison
er, and he went home accompanied by llts
wife and children, who had been with hini'
during the whole trial.
The following order was taken out on mo
tion of solicitor, which ended the court of

THE JUnlY COMPLIMENTED.
Court did not adjourn till Saturday after
noon, and before discharging the jury the
judge complimented them very highly. He
said he never saw a panel of jurois mere at
tentive and patient, and altogether it was
as fine a panel as he ha-1 ever seen. We do
not believe that any better panel of thirty
six jurors could be gotten in the county.

may know ee that there is to be

of course an Association will be of no ben

enough about their profession to try to ad
vance in it. Which of the two is it? It
certainly must be one or the other. Let the
tteiers tiselves show that it is neither

ei(ibers. In this way they can do it. The
Association is for the benelt of every tcach

deavor to iuake it a success. Tea-hers are
members of a noble profession, and it de
pends on thei altogether ,s to whether the

They should work in every way to elevate
it. Becoming a member of an Association
is one way.

We are turning prices upside down, and
the differcnce between our upset prices and
other prices is
The Difference Between 6 and 9,
The difference between 6 and 9 is 3, and
this shows the important fact that the
ickot hOrte' PriCns arc One-hiri
than those of any other house in Sumter.
These are facts, solid and stubborn. They are
not to be got away with by any cheap de
vice of bluff or bravado. We place our
goods on the market for nuality, not quan
tity, against those of competing firms, and
MEET OUR PRICES!
That's a sort of meeting that nobody's
heard of so far, and nobody will hear of it.
We have facilities for buying that makes us,

it? Be the judge yourself. Come and see
