THE MANNING TIMEi
Ma nalailag, 2. C.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
HUMAN LIFE TOO CHEAP.
According to the sentence of the
law two white persons, a man and a
woman, were to have been hanged in
Chesterfield last Friday, and judging
from the history of the crime as pub
lished, the degraded and immoral
condition of the parties concerned,
and the opinion of the judge and so
licitor as expressed to the governor,
we think they both deserved hanging.
The woman was charged with having
poisoned her husband, and the man
with aiding her in it, the object being
to get the woman's husband out of
the way, so that these two degraded
beings could continue unmolested
their lustful practices. The details of
the crime are disgusting and re
volting in immorality and brutal
ity. The jury found them guilty, and
the judge and solicitor declined to
recommend them to mercy. A peti
tion, however, was gotten up by some
citizens, and numerously signed, ask
ing for pardon. The governor was
moved to tenderness, and wanted to
show mercy, but hesitated. He final
ly bethought him to put them to a
final and fearful test, and in case they
stood out to the last, to respite them.
The condemned criminals were car
ried to the scaffold, had their arms
bound, the rope placed around their
necks, and all ready for the fatal
drop, when, they still stoutly protest
ing their innocence and claiming a
speedy welcome into the heavenly
home, were granted a reprieve by the
governor, his private secretary haviag
been present all the time with the re
prieve in his pocket. Had they con
fessed to the murder, of course no re
prieve would have been made public,
and the hanging would have taken
place, but they, having stood the test,
and no confession having been minde,
,were reprieved, and have since had
their sentences commuted to impris
onment for life.
Thirteen years ago, in Hampton's
administration, a similar test is said
to have been made with an Abbeville
Such things to a sensitive mind, in
a free American State, make a revolt
ing impression. It savors too much
of the practices of the olden times
when might made right. Human life
is too sacred a thing to be trifled
with. It is too far below the dignity
of a governor. It encourages deceit
and lying, for hereafter the hope will
always be held out to the condemned
criminal that if he will only protest
his innocence to the last he will not
be hanged. We doubt the advisabil
ity of capital punishment, but either
let the lawv be repealed or else its
judgments carried out. Our govern
ors have become a law unto them
selves, and if by accident a jury does
render-a verdict of guilty, the chances
-are in their favor that they will be
pardoned, unless perchance it be some
poor wretch who can get no friends
to help him.
It seems to us that when in due
process of law, after the accused has
had every opportunity to make his
7defense, and the jury has found a ver
dict of guilty, that, except in cases of
undoubted proof that the prisoner is
-not guilty of the crime charged, the
-governor should not interfere. The
pardoning power vested in the gov
* ornor was never intended simply to
.snow mercy, but to assist in maintain
ing justice, and unless strong and un
deni-able evidence is brought out, that
was not or could not be brought out
on the trial, then the governor should
iever interiere, and in all cases where
interference is made, it should be
done by th'e advice of the jury, so
licitor and judge who heard the case,
and they should be pu ntheir
oaths before the pardoning is done.
Either our larps most be respected
and the verdicts of the juries sustain-.
ed, or else let us abandon the law and
evidence -in the case, and be governed
altogether by the wealth and influence
of the accused. Then we shall have
justice and cruelty for the poor, mer
cy and licentiousness for the rich.

himself last Friday at the Red Springs

An Act Unworthy a Goyernor.
Governor Tillman's course in the Jacobs
Johnson ease at Chestertield is a disgrace to
civilization, an insult to the machinery of
law in South Carolina, and the most horri
ble, cold-blooded specimen of the quintes
sence of refined cruelty ever displayed by
any governor in this country.
His act was more horrible, it seems to us,
than the tortures of the inquisition. for then
it was only the fear of great pain which was
relied upon to extort a confession from the
hapless victim, but in this case, we behold
the disgraefu~l spectacle of the governor of
one of the thirteen original States attempt
ing, in the latter part of the Nineteenth cen
tury, to wring confessions from two wretch
es, by leading them to the very doorway of
The governor has the right to reprieve a
prisoner, to commute his sentence, or to
pardon him outright, but he has no moral
right to degrade the alnmost divine privilege

two weak and wretched mortals arc stand

lows at Chesterfield last Friday, was not the
first incident of the kind in the recent his
tory of South Carolina, altlioigh it is sin
cerv.y to be hoped that it will be the last.
In 178 -1h1l 0.,vid. a colored man who had
been coivictel of the murder of Mr. and
Mls. Franklin. two old white peoide, who
had lived for many years in Abueville
county, was taken to the dilows. Ilie was
acconipanied by a colored minister who
sang and p-rayed with and for him. David's
hands and ftet were pinioned, the rope was
phced around his neck, the knot being
pulled around until it pressed against his
right ear, and the last farewells were spok
en. when just as the trembling wrteh felt
that he was about to be swung off into eter
nity, the sheriff announced that the gov
ernor, in his mercy. had granted him a lit
tle longer lease of life. David made no
confession, and was finally discharged a
free man, his case having gone the rounds
of the courts. The David case should not
be followed, however, as a precedent, and
it is to be hoped that the better sentiment
of the State will never again be shocked by
such an exhibition as that which took place
at Chesterfiel.1 court house last week.
Deputy Sheriff Watson, of Sumter, Shot
a Negro who Resisted Arrest.
SUMTEE, August 17.-Yesterday a negro
named ThomasNickens, living on the plan.
tation of the Rev. E. T. Hodges, about eight
miles above this city, attacked his wife, in
ificting a severe wound over one eye and
another in the back of thc neck, from which
it is said the woman will die.
This morning Deputy Sheriff Watson
went out to arrest Nickens. When he ap
proached him he noticed that he had an axe
in his hand. When the deputy sheriff got
within speaking distance he told Nickens
that he had a warrant for him. The negro
began to curse Mr. Watson, defied him, and
said he would kill him before lie would be
arrested, at the same time advancing on Mr.
Watson. Mr. Watson told the negro that if
he came toward him with the axe that he
would kill him. The negro, however, kept
advancing, and struck at the deputy, who
dodged the blow, and shot the negro in the
head, who fell as if dead. The deputy re
mained there about ten minutes, and, still
thinking the negro was dead came back to
Sumter and reported the matter to -heriff
A jury of inquest was summoned and
went out to hold an inquest, but when they
got there they found that the negro was not
dead but had gotten up and gone nearly
back to his house, about three hundred
vards. Stimulants were administered and
the negro was revived and was able to talk.
He was then put on a mattress and brought
to Sumter. When seen in jail this after
noon he was in a stupor and breathing
heavily, his hands and feet were growing
cold, and the prospect is that he will die to
The negro's brother-in-law was with the
deputy when the killing took place, but he
ran when Niekens made for the deputy
with the axe. Ever since Nickens chopped
his wife in the head 3esterday he has said
he would kill anyone who attempted to ar
rest him. Deputy Sheriff Watson reigrets:
the affatir very much, but he had to shoot
the negro in defence of his own life.

A Sutggestion From a Forestoni Citizen.
Foreston, August 17, 1891.
Emrron Mm~~NxO Tnra~st -The crop
prospects remain as good as could
e asked for, both corn and cotton.
Thiere wvas a& gentleman here Saturday
who had/ /just returned from a trip
West. U - was through Arkansas,
Misissippi, Alabama, and Georgia, and he
sas he saw nothing to compare with the
cotton in this .vicini-y. He remarked it
was worth a ride of fifty miles to sec it.
I was amused at reading an account of
'our Summerton trlp over the W. & S. RI.
h. I will venture to umke a suggestion.
A s the Atlantic Coas t Line has built a most
elegant depot in all its appointments, and
as it was suggested somei months ago, that
the old one heie be sent to Chicago, as a
curiosity, at the World's rair. I now think
that the'most profitable investment that the
stockholders of the WV. & S. Ri. R. could
uake, would be to send their road there,
too, and to run a line around the grounds
of the exhtbition, and manage it in the
same way as now. I know of nothing that
would be there that would be of more inter
est to the people of the world than the WV.
& S. railroad and the old Foreston depot.

A Cva Pl .o-An crijlnary
clock luav be made a vry elegait
home ornment with very li l trouble
and expense. lave an inch board
sawed to the desired shape and size,
with an opening in the centre in
which the clock wil! fit snugly. Cut
the plush which is to cover it, a
couple of inches larger than the board
is and slash it around the edges.
Place a layer of cotton batting on the
board, before covering it, with an ex
tra thickness near the edge so that it
will gradually slope towards the open
ing for the clock. Lay on the plush,
and draw it stuootlly over the board,
and tack it on the back. The decora
tion for the plaque is made of atural
oak leaves. Select as graceful a twig
as possible, give the leaves a couple
of coats of glue; when dry, gild or
bronze all with liquid gilding, and
tack it on the plaque. Fasten the
clock in securely, and cover the back
by tacking muslin over it, the color
of the plush. Place screw eves on
the back to hang it upI by. The wire
or cord for hanging, should not show.
ToILT STAN.-An economical and
convenient stand for holding a tin
basin, pitcher, and soap dish is made
of three broom-sticks, each thirty-five
inches long; they a-e nailed together,
and a piece of stout wire drawn
around the top for the basin to rest
on. Paint the sticks red or black;
fasten three nails in the sticks to hold
a small tin plate for soap. A drum
stick, or a smooth stick of any kind,
is fastened on one side, to hang the
towel on; it is to be painted like the
stand. The basin and pitcher will
cost in the neighborhood of a dollar,
which is really all the outlay; the lit
tle paint it will take will not amount
to five cents. If one were to biy a
stand of this kind it would cost about
five dollars, and really be no better
than this home-made one.
RAIsIN CAK:.-1 1-2 cupful sugar,
1 cupful milk, 1-2 cupful butter, 1
cupful raisins, 2 1-2 cupfuls flour, 1

the two together at least twice; beat
the flour carefully into the mixture,
and add the fruit. Then beat the
batter at least three minutes, and
bake for three-quarters of an hour in
a moderate oven. The flour should
be well sifted before being measured
for this cake. A chocolate icing made
