What the restlit of tlis trial will be is h tri
to teli, but the United States authorities are
leaving nothing undone to bring the guilty
parties to j ti.tuce. Large rwards have been
offered and several pait.es. charged with
complicity in the k.lling of Postmaster
Baker, have turned State's evidence and
are implicating some of Lake City's best
citizens. The friends of the men under ar
rest are circulating petitions to raise uou

ing counsel for the defendants, and to pay
their board bills during the trial. A peti
tion circulated in Manning a few days ago
was signed by several, and they contributed
several dollars. Ex-Attorney General Bar

In calling attention to our readers to the
announement "To The Public" by Mr. L.
Levi, we feel that we but voice the senti
ment of the people when we wish for him
much success in his determination to found
in our town a mercantile business. Mr.
Levi is no ,tranger to the readers of THE
TimEs, and as is well known he sprung
from stock that snatched success from what
appeared to be insurmontable difficulties.
His name connected with a business en
terprise, insures contidence at once; the
people of Clarendon will be content to feel
that a son of the late Moses Levi would be
untrue to his fathers honored name, were
he not to uphold the legacy of integrity
handed down from father to son. Louis
Levi was born and reared right here in
Manning and the people can claim him as
one of their own. He is amply able to buy
his goods to the best advantage and we feel
sure of his success. When you come to
town be sure and give him a call.
We are glad to call the attention of our
readers to the announement of Mr. J. W.
McLeod, published in another column. If
there is any virtue in having an immense
stock, bought at a lttle over half of the
wholesale cost, Mr. McLeod can attract a
trade to Manning such as has never been
seen here before. There is no doubt about
it, he is prepared to soil goods cheaper than
they can be bought at wholesale, and from
the fact that he has come into THE 1 IMES
to inform the people is sufficient to know
that he intends to give the trading public
the advantage of his recently made "deals."
McLeod within the past few months has
bought two stocks of goods from establish
ments that could not withstand the pres
sure of low price cotton; they went to the
wall, and by having the cash on hand Mc
Leod with a far-seeing business eye, took
advantage of the situation, by stepping
in and buying the stocks, and there
by saving them from being shipped
to some other point. We have no hesitan
cy in saying that J. W. McLeod can sur
prise the natives with low pricesand from
our knowledge of the man, he will do that
very thing. Mr. McLeod did not invest his
mo'ney to lay up and rust nor did he buy
the goods as forage for moths, but teic in
vestment was made to make money, aInd
this he can do, at the same time give to
his customers the biggest bargains they
have ever seen in this or any other mar
ket. Come to Manning, come everybody
and see for yourselves what McLeod can
let you have for very little money.

The Horton Bankruptcy case.
Manning was visited last Monday by a
fock of hawyers who gathered here for the
purpose of 'investigtoLg the failure of Mr.
E. C. Horton. The bearing was had be
fore Hon. Edward C. Hughes of Charleston,
specisl referee appointed by the United
States Court. and representing the claim
ants were, Messrs. Marion Moise of Sum
ter, George L. Trenholm of Charleston and
Wilson & Duliant of Manning. Repre
senting Mr. XW. B. Wilson, who foreclosed
a chattel mortgage given him for money
loaned to Horton. were Mesra. Fitzsimmons
of Charleston and Joseph F Rthame' of
Maning. atnd representing Horton were
Messrs. R. 0. l'urdy of Sumter and Abe
Levi of Manning. The testimony was
taen in the law office of Major Levi, with
Mr. L. I. Parrott as stenographer. T'he
court of inquiry was not public, or rather
no invitations were extended to outsiders
to be present, and the witnesses were not
allowed to bear the testimony of each
From what we can gather the Horton lia
bilitis are far in excess of the assets. In
fact, if the mortgage executed to W. B.
Wilson st;.nds, arid we cannot see bow it
can poss~biy be disturbs i, then the credit
ors ot Hort:'n will have a very short divis
ion among the assets, because the stock was
sold under the mtortgaLge at public auction
and only brought about enough to pay the
mortgage and e-xpenses.
We took the trouble to inquire into the
morgage 'given by Horton to Wilson, and
find that Wilson loaned Horton the cash
and the whole transaction is backe-d up by
drafte, check-, and the books of the bank.
The moitgage was dulv recorded, the sale
properly adserti:eed in the county paper,
and the sale madhe without any notice of or'
jectin being made by the Horton credi
tors. At the sale Mr. Wilson was the only
btdder and the stock of $5,500C was knocked
iown to' h:n for S'3000, the mortgage was
for $2500; a tew days iater Mr. Wil'on sold
the sme tek to Mr. J. W. McLeod. Tuis
is the first case in bankruptey proceedings
ever held in M~anning under the new law,

day yet to be agreed upon by the attor

To the Public:
Believing that my training in mer
cantile pursuits has fitted me to un
dertake a mercantile business vent
ure on my own account, andl having
and abiding faith iii those with
whomn I h ave spent the whole of my
life, I have decided to opein up a gen
eral nerc'antiH lebniess in the town
of Maiiining.opposite the court huise?,
where it is mly purpose to establish a
business which will give the trading
publie every advantage that lifelong
experience and a thorough knowl
edge of the wants of the people can
I propose to do business upon busi
ness principles and in accordance
with the demands of progressive com
petition. I do not expect to be here
today and somewhere else tomorrow,
but I have pitched my tent in my na
tive county to stay.
In the selection of my stock I feel
sure of being able to please the most
exacting, both as to style and qual
ity, and as to quantity, there will be
no complaint on that score as the
markets of the world are open to me,
and my purchases already made will
convince a most scrutinous public
that I am prepared to meet competi
tion from whatever source it may,
come, and that those who have been
posing before the people as "leaders"
may well look to their laurels, as I do
not intend to be found in the rear
rank in this mercantile battle-I am
not built that way.
On every train my stock is arriv
ing, and it comes from the very best
markets. All that I ask is for the
people to come to my store and in
spect for themselves. It will be my
earnest endeavor to bring to Man
ning a trade which has heretofore
drifted to other markets and to ac
complish this, I realize the founda
tion must be laid at the beginning
by keeping up-to-date goods at up
I cordially invite the people of
Clarendon and adjoining counties to
come to my store, and if I do not con
vince them of my ability to sell them
goods at prices to induce them to
buy from me, I will acknowledge the
fault to be mine.
In this announcement I will not at
tempt to particularize any special
line of goods, but when all of my
stock has arrived I shall quote prices
which will compare with any mer
cantile house doing a legitimate bus
iness in the State. I shall not adver
tise an article at a price less than the
wholesale cost, and "be out of it"
when the purchaser calls for it; those
tricks can only work for a short time
and are bound to react unon those
who resort to such deceiving tactics.
This is no temporary venture on
my part; I have started this busi
ness as my life's work, and with the
advantages I am so fortunate to enjoy
I feel satisfied the people will give to
me all of the encouragement my fa
cilities and energy will merit.
I have secured the services of Mr.
Preston B. Thames and Miss Hattie
Bagnal to assist me; the former is a
man of experience and needs no in
troduction to the people of this coun
ty, and the latter is a young lady
well qualified and will make my lady
customers feel at home when they
visit my store. Respectfully,
