THE MAHONEY MATTER,
Below we publish (1) the papers on file tl
in the governor's office, relative to the re
moval-of Trial Justice Mahoney, which in- f
eludes the charges made against him and
the correspondence relative thereto; (2) An is
account published in the Charleston World, n
which gives the gist of the testimony at the h
trial last Saturday, together with some com
ments; and (3) The News and CowZes ac
count of the trial, with the comments there- tU
These articles give about all there is of h
the case, and we prefer giving it in this u
form, isnamuch as the whole thing is prin- j<
1eipally a matr of local importance, and
we do not care to comment upon it. it
Mr. Galluchat went to Columbia last
Monday to see the governor, but he was d
absent, and as he was not to have returned 0
until to-day, we are unable to state what is
his final decision in the matter.
The Charges Against Mahoney.
(Copy.) PnmwooD, S. C., July 24, 1891.
GoB. R. Tillman-Dear friend: At the
request of parties interested in the trial
justice appointment, I write to know what c
is to be done in the case of J H. Mahoney a
who was appointed for this the western s
-section of Clarendon county and is now h
charged wih non-performance of duty and I
of drinking too much whisky. r
These parties have been to Mr. Mahoney e
7 and asked him to resign, and he has refused
to do so, saying the charges are false and A
that he can exonerate himself The pros- n
ecuting parties write asking you to say c
wbat step is to be taken in the case. As to 1
who Mr. Mahoney is please call on Mr. J. u
E. Tindal. There seems to be something
wrong in this matter, but where to lodge it C
I don't know. Mr. Mahoney has been T. J. a
for a number of years, he took considerable 3
interest in the last election and may have h
offended some of the prosecuting parties. a
Hoping to hear from you soon, P
I am as ever yours,faithfully, U

Diiar Sir:-Enclosed please find a certificate
that will explain itself in part. This is on
ly-i1 of many times that our Trial Justice
Joan H. Mahoney, has been under the in fln
enrce of liquor and unfit to act intelligently.
Th'at we desire if it suits your Majesty, is to s<
have another Trial Justice appointed in Mr. ii
-Mahoney's place; we would like to have a
man that will let whisky alone, and attend 7;
-to the duties of his office. If you will con- ax
sailt our Senator L. H. DesChamps he can, la
if he will, give you some light on this mat- fi
- ter. Hoping your Majesty will consider
our condicion and let us have another Trial ci
Justice in place of John H. Mahoney, I re- ei

*The Clarendon Delegation Recommends
MAlmiso, Sep. 32.-The legislative dele- se
gation, consisting of Senator Louis H. Des
Champs and Representatives 3. M. Rich- ef
ardson and I. M. Woods, met to-day in the cc
court house to hear testimony relative to it
-~..the charges preferred against Trial Justice
KonH Mahoney for drunkenness. The of
-affdavits charging Mahoney with drunken- cc
ness had been made by E. B. Felder and C.
B. Broughton. Governor Tillman referred
the matter to Senator DesChamps, who re- tb
ported back his recommendations, and **
then, without allowing Mahoney any op
portunity of entering a defense, the gover- m
nor dismissed him from his offce. b
Mr. Mahoney at once employed Mr. MI. be
C. Galluchat, of this place, as his attorney, af
and Mr. Galluchat visited the governor, to
procured copies of all the papers on file rel- fa
alive to Mahoney's dismissal, and obtained in
the consent of the governor to order the sen
ator to have a proper investigation of the at
charges against the trial justice,
In the meantime petitions were circulated
--one for the appointment of a son of Ma- Jy
jor DesChamps to fill Mahoney's place, and nel
another for Mr. H. S. Briggs. After the P1
governor ordered an investigation, how- hi
ever, these petitions were dropped for the
Thetril bganto-day at twelve o'clock, st
andlased or ixhours, and resulted in a a
complete vindication for Mahoney. One of h
the men. C. E. Broughton, who "had made d
affdavit againat Mahoney, charging him bt
with drunkenness, submitted another aff- b
davit withdrawing his first affidavit, and al- e*
leging that be had made the charge without ce
due consideration. Mr. Felder also failed
to substantiate the allegations he had made,
and his witnesses failed to testify as he ex
pected. It was proved that Mahoney did
on the particular occasion take two or three
drinks of whisky, but the proof that he P)
was drunk or unable to attend to his busi- ti<
ness was an utter failure. On the other qi
hand it was proven that the reason he did bt
not try the cases alleged in the affidavit, k<
was because the d fendants in the cases
had not been arrested, and there were no a
eases to try. It was further proved that on t1
that particular day he had left Pinewood, w
where it was alleged he was too drunk to iz:
.try any eases, and had gone a few miles to w
anther place where he had an engagement gi
to try another case; had tried that casec at
the appointed hour, and that no one at this
last place had suspected that he was in any
At the conclusion of the trial the delega
tion retired, and in a few minutes decided 02

tenced at 1 o'clock p. m. and continued
ntil 6 o'clock.
From what your correspondent can learm
.overnor Tillman acted entirely upon the
ivice of Senator DesChamps in removing
[honey, and as soon as Mahoney gave
is side of the affair the Governor ordered
thorough investigation. After listening
atiently to the evidence the delegation
animously voted to have Mahoney reap.
Dinted. This places DesChamps in a bad
sition, inasmuch as he was the direct
use of his removal. What makes it worse
r DesChamps than it would otherwise be,
that after he recommended that he be re.
stated, he adds underneath that he does

What the governor will do in the case is
