The later days of the court Judge Ald
rich turned out a large amount of work
from the legal mill.
A motion for a new trial in the case of
John Thomas alias John Thames was re
fused and the defendant was sent up for
Then came the case of Wade Ward and
Corneha Bryant, charged with adultery.
The parties had no attorney and their case
was managed by Defendant Ward, who
exhibited a boldness suited to a demon, and
his conduct was such that had the audi
ence tb right to pronounce sentence, Ward
would never be lIlIwed to see the outside
of the State penitentiary again, and when
he 'serves his sentence out he had better
not go back to his old haunts, for he will
find it a very unwholesome community to
live in. The court was limited in its sen
tence to one year on the chaingang or pen
itentiarv for Ward and six months in the
county 'jail for the Cornelia Bryant, who is
likely to become a mother before her time
William Martin pleaded guilty on the
charge of larceny and was sentenced to ten
morths on the chaingang.
Bossie Bailev, an old offender, was tried
and convicted of receiving stolen goods.
He was sentenced to nine mouths on the
chaingang; not liking the sentence, he
asked the judge if he could not be allowed
to pay a fine. The judge asked him if he
could pay a fine of a thousand dollars, the
answer being in the negative.
The case of William Fairey, indicted for
murder, developed into a case of uninten
tional killing. The circumstances are that
Fairey and Roland Buskey, another nearo,
were playing, Fairey holding a pistol, and
after scuffling in a friendly manner, the
pistol went off an d killed Buskey. It was
really a case of criminal carelessness which
in law is manslaughter. The jury returned
a verdiet of manslaughter with a recomn
mendation for mercy and the defendant
was sentenced to two years on chaingang.

Following, came the case of Dianah Har
in, charged with murder. This was a
ase where the defendant, a black woman,
nsavory in characte-r and appearance, was
ngaged in a drunken gambling brawl at
Rimini and in an attempt to shout a man
who was fleeing from her she accidentally
shot and killed a little girl who happened
o be near with a baby in her arms. Found
uilty of manslaughter and setntenced to
ive years in the penitentiary at hard labor.
Then came the case of Scipio Rhame and
Robert Pearson, indicted for the murder of
llison Butler at a sell supper near Sum
erton. This case consumed a considera
>le time and it was ably managed on both
ides. The circumstances are that at a
frolic on the night of , where
lquor as well as other things were sold,
Robert Pearson struck Ellerson Butler with
awalking stick with such a force that the
tick was shattered; this was followed by a
low from a piece of' fence rail in the hands
f bcipio Rhame; the last blow evidently
id the killing. The jury found Scipio
Rhamie guilty of murder and Robert Pear
on guilty of murder with a recommenda
ion to mercy. Before sentence was pro
ounced counsel for the defence gave no
ice of a motion for a new trial in behalf of

Judge Aldrich then called the case of

after an able argument on the part of the
efence on behalf of Pearson for a new
trial the judge refused it and proceeded to
entence. Scipio Rhame was senteuced to

was sentenced to the penitentiary at hard

Rev. P. B. Wells. pastor of the
Manning M. E. church, delivered last
Sunday morning the following time
"Thou shalt not kill." Ex. 20:13.
These words were spoken by God
Himself. They are universal in their
application, and cannot be altered
nor limited in their meaning by any
human authority. Man is forbidden,
in every case, to take life, unless per
mitted by an exception which God
has made to the command.
Let us view our text in the light
thrown upon it by other passages of
Scripture, so that we may get at its
These words, taken in their ordi
nary meaning, might a- first seem
to be out of place, as addressed to a
Christian congregation. No one here,
I hope, has ever shot down his neigh
bor. Let us, however, remember
that there are crimes- which lie be
yond the province of human law.
God says: "Thou shalt not kill; thou
shalt not steal: thou shalt not com
mit adultery; thou shalt not bear
false witness." You may never have
taken the life of your neighbor, and
vet be a murderer. You may be a
thief, and still never touch my pos
sessions. You may be an adulterer,
though you may never have com
mitted the act. Such is the spirit of
the divine law. Human law takes
cognizance only of the overt acts of
a man. Divine law is concerned with
the motives, purposes, dispositions,
which lie back of, and lead to, our
actions. We may be criminals in
spirit and at the same time openly
violate no command of the decalogue.
Christ says that "out of the heart
proceed evil thoughts, murders, adul
teries, fornications, thefts, false wit
ness, blasphemies: these are the
things which defile a man." Again,
He says: 'Ye have heard that it was
said by them of old time, thou shalt
not kill; and whosoever shall kill
shall be in danger of the judgment:
but I say unto you, that whosoever
is angry with his brother without a
cause shall be in danger of the judg
ment." St. John says: "He that hat
eth his brother is a murderer." Mur
der does not consist in mere blood
shedding. Anger, oppression, un
kindness, are murder. The spirit
which begets them is the same in its
nature as that which sheds blood.
The crime of murder lies in the mo
tive and design of the heart. Let us,
therefore, beware, lest we be spirit
ual criminals, though we escape the
"vulgarities of crime."
I desire to confine my remarks to
day, however, to the letter of the
law, as laid down in the text, "Thou
shalt not kill." This command de
serves to be especially considered by
us today, owing to the frequency of
its violation. It has been already
observed that this law is character
ized by an absolute universality, and
that we can make no exception to it,
unless by divine authority. It ap
plies not only to the taking of man's
life, but also to the slaying of ani
We are allo-wed by God to take the
life of animals in two cases:
(1.) When they are necessary. for
(2.) W~hen they are hostile and dan
gerous to us.
These are the only -exceptions
which God has made to the law in
reference to taking the life of ani
als. When we slay them from any
other motives, we violate the sixth
It would be well for us to remem
er this truth as we go around with
ur seal-skin jackets and our hats
ighly ornamented with the sweet
songsters of the air. These things
are prompted by, and minister to,
ur pride, and are necessary for nei
her comfort nor convenience.
The life of man may be lawfully
aken away in certain cases:
(1.) When necessary for our own
efence. We have a sufficient war
ant for this in Exodus xxii: "If a
hief be found breaking up, and be
mitten that he die, there shall no
lood be shed for him." In this Pu
tance the thief was killed in the de
ence of a man and his family. We
re warranted, by a parity of reason,
n extending this permission to all
ases which are substantially the
ame. Only when my own safety or
hat of my family demands it, am I
ustified in shedding my brother's
lood. Nor are we justifiable even
ere, if there are any other percepti
le means of warding off the threat
ned danger. Only in defence of my
wn life can I take your life. Let me
ay, however, that I would rather be
illed than to kill; rather death a
undredfold than to have my broth
er's blood crying to me from the
(2.) The life of man may be lawful
y taken when, on account of crime,
t has been forfeited to the law of
he land. The life of man may be
orfeited for other crimes than that
f murder; but God's law is very em
hatic in reference to the punish
ent for the crime of murde-.
God said to Noah: "Whoso shed
eth man's blood, by man shall his
lood be shed." In certain cases we
are not simply justifiable in,.taking
ife, according to the human law, but
e are required to do so by divine
law. God says: "He that killeth any
an shall surely be put to death."
gain, "The murderer shall surely
e put to death."
This was God's law among the
ews, and it is binding upon us in
hose cases whose nature is un
hangeable and universal. Divine
law not only permits, but requires
that the murderer be punished with
eath. ~when this punishment is
ecessary it must be inflicted by him
ho is appointed by law for this
urpose, and by him only in his offi
cial capacity and when acting ac
ording to the decisions of law.
[hough a man may be guilty, and
legally condemned, yet were private
ndividuals to lay violent hands upon
iim they would be guilty of murder.
Every lynching party is composed
ntirely of murderers, and it is the
sacred duty of those in authority to.
see that they are punished to the
full extent of the law. Nor will
vyuhings cease in our midst until
hose guilty of this crime are brought
o justice. Murderers they are, and
thev' should die the murderer's
"Lvnchers do not seek to vindicate
the law hecause they love it, but
they violate it because they neither
love nor respect it." An eminent
uthority has very truly said that
the trouble is not in the law, but in
spirit of lawlessness-a spirit defy
ing the laws of God and of man-a
spirit whieh, unchecked, must at
last overturn all law and render un
safe the life of every citizen. Let no.
man be condemned unless upon "ad
equate legal testimony, fairly exhib
ited in open court, and in exact con
formity to the modes of trial by law
established;" and let the execution.
vhen sentence has been passed, be*
carried out by him who alone is ap
pointed for this purpose.
We have noticed, now, the only
circumstances which warrant our
taking the life of our fellow-man.
These are the only exceptions which
the divine Lawgiver has made to this
law. His law is as binding upon us
today as when it was spoken amid
the thunders of Sinai; and the th~un
derbolts of the divine wrath will be
hurled as heavily against the mur
derer of today as against those who
violated this lawv in the centuries|
He who slays his fellow-man not
only puts to death the animal part
f an's nature, but he offers an in
dignity to the noblest work of God.
-Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by
man shall his blood be shed, for in
th imag of God mae He man."
In murder we offer an indignity to
the "image of God;" we fail to recog
nize the value of life to an immortal
being, accountable in another world
for the actions done here; and which
life ought for this very reason to be
particularly guarded, since death in
troduces man into changeless and
eternal relations, which wert not in
tended by God to lie at the mercy of
human passions. Consequently God
has time and again repeated His law
concerning the punishment for mur
der, and shown us his abhorrence of
the crime of murder. We are told
that the land is defiled by blood, and
that the most sacred refuge cannot
shield the murderer. All nations
have held to the justice of this pen
alty. Where murderers have been
spared,crime has increased-the land
has been defiled by blood.
It has been truly said that God
Himself has shown us the conse
quence of sparing murderers. Dur
ing the first sixteen and a half cen
turies it seems that capital punish
ment was not inflicted. A great ex
periment was tried in the case of
Cain. God guarded his life. He be
came a "fugitive and a vagabond in
the earth." Remorse prayed upon
his heart. God made him a living
warning of the torment endured by
the murderer, but this did not deter
others. Men went from bad to worse,
until finally the wickedness of the
world became so great that the flood
was sent upon the inhabitants of the
earth. Just as soon as Noah comes
out of the ark he receives the divine
command in reference to the pun
ishment for murder. Those coun
tries departing from this law have
seen the bad effects; crime has
increased, and human life held less
Let us bring this subject home to
us. It concerns your safety and
mine. How is it in our State to-day?
Are we, as a people, obeying the
command, "Thou shalt not kill?" Is
the murderer, in accordance with
laws human and divine, brought to
Our life is our all; on it hang eter
nal interests. Is it held sacred? Is
not our State defiled with blood?
Let us look at some of the facts.
During the year 1897 there was a de
crease in the crimes of burglary, ar
son, assault and battery, forgery,
highway robbery and some other of
fences. There was an inc-ease in
The per cent. of convictions in bur
glary cases was 70; in larceny, 65; 4a
assault and battery, 70; in dispensary
cases, 00; in homicide cases about 27.
Of the convictions for all crimes, only.
six were sentenced to death.
There were 225 homicide cases in'
this State in 1897, of which there
were 31 no bills, 120 not guilty and
74 guilty. There has been a gradual
increase of homicide cases disposed
of in the State each year since 1888.
In 1888 there were 107, and in 1897
there were 225 cases of homicide-an
increase of over 100 per cent. in ten
years. And yet only six sentenced to.
death for all crimes.
Think on this foramoment. There
were 225 homicides in 1897. This
means that during each week of the
year more than four of our citizens
were placed in bloody graves.
Dr. Carlisle has very truly pointed
out that in the deeper view of this
subject we must make no distinction
between malicious murder and kill
ing in self-defense. If A killed B in
self-defense, then B was trying to
kill A, so that in every case of homi
cide there is one murderer, at least,
I have not yet been able to obtain
the statistical statement of the hom
icides in our State in 1898, bu$ feel
confident that it is worse even than
There is an exceedingly bad show
ing, so far, for this year. Within the
last few days several of our citizens;
in various parts of the State, have
bee'n murdered in cold blood. Ohe of
these, in particular, cries out to us
for justice-an inoffensive woman
shot down in her own home by :an
"officer of the law," and her hiisb~nd
seriously wounded. We most heart:~
ily indorse the following from- the
Southern Christian Advocate:
"We demand the speediest punishment
of the crimi'cal. The resistance -to search
gave the officer no reason for his violence
in word and deed. His violence led to
strife and his aim destroyed life. A wo
man's blood cries out for justice, and the.
courts must render it. Legal delays an d
technicalities mnust neither postpone nor
prevent punishment. The citizens of- Col
umbia behaved with great self-restraint and
prudence, and left the outrage to the law.
Now, the law must not fail. It has disap
pointed us before. but it must not in this
instance. The coroner's jury has found a
verdict of murder against Crgwfoid an-d
his fellow-constables. Let the conrt with
out delay carry forward the issue."
There have been a larger number
of criminals on trial at the present
term of .court in Clarendon county
than at any one term for a- number
of years. We were glad to notice,
howev..er, that the juries showed a
desire to get at the facts in each case
and a determination to render their
verdict in strict accord with these
facts. Consequently there were more
Looking over the facts, we are
forced to the conclusion that human
life is very cheap in our State today.
This sad state of affairs is due to a
variety of causes. The carrying of
concealed weapons has much to do
with the increase of homicides. In
every community in our State. there
are many who are never found with
out fire-arms on their person. Not
only do the lower class carry them,
but men high in authority. Even
the little boys, in a great many .in
stances, have fire-arms about their
person. The law against carrying
these weapons is a mere dead-letter.
It were better to repeal the law than
for it not to be enforced.
Another cause of the frequency of
homicides is that so few suffer the
penalty of the law. It is almost im
possi ble to hang a white man in.South
Carolina for murder. I am not pre
pared to say just how far the courts
of the country are responsible for
this sad condition of affairs. It is
certainly true,-however, that there is
a "mawkish sentimentality" against
taking the life of man for murder.
Truly a strange philanthropy which
bestows its pity upon the murderer,
forgetful of the loved ones of him
who is laid in a bloody grave. Today
in South Carolina there are scores of
murderers walking our streets as free,
men-thugs, cut-throats--ready to
take your life and mine upon the
slightest provocation; they know full
well that they wvill es cape the pen
alty of the lawv.
I quote a passage from Dr. Buck
ley in the New York Advocate:
"The sentimentalists who have been
weakening the administration of law, the
judges who have help ed~them, the insanity
experts at their service, have sowed this

Too many crimes are dealt with
only as cases 'fr "feminine sympa
thy, masculine pettifogging, expert
romancing, judicial non-commitalism
and jury sentimentality."
Homicides wvill increase as long as
State and society condone time crime.
Another cause is that false ideas of
honor and courage prevail. Men
seem to forget that the death of an
antagonist furnishes no reparation
for an injury received.
Lastly, there is a spirit of unbelief
abroad in the land, Men dare to vi
olate God's law, refusing to believe
that they will ever suffer for sin. It
ever before, that "the soul that sin
neth it shall surely die. The mur

God grant that the present year
may be characterized by a great
decrease in the number of homicides
in our State. Amen.

a job if it stepped up and tapped him
on the shoulder.
It is very hard to stand ily by and see
onr dear ones sn~ffer while awaiting the ar
rival of the doctor. An Albany (N. Y.)
dairyman called :. a drug store there for a
doctor to come and see his child, then very
si.:k with croup. Not finding the doctor
in, lie left word for him to nome at once on
his r-turn. He also bought a bottle of1
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, which he
hoped wvould give some relief until ti~e docs
