The famous Lake City case in
which a number of Williamsburg cit
izens were charged with the murder
of Post Master Baker and the burn
ing of the post office at Lake City on
the night of 21st day of February
189S, resulted in a mistrial. The jury
stood five for conviction and seven for
acquittal. Not since the days of the
political trials has there been so much
interest taken in the proceedings of
the federal courts; every part of the
State was watching the trial and the
testimony as published by the News
and Courier was greedily read. Opin
ions differ as to the guilt of the ac
cused, many are there who refuse to
place any credence in the evidence of
the government's main witnesses,
while there are some who believe that
3ewhamn, although a self confessed
vidian, did have his testimony backed
up by strong circumstantial and cor
roborative proof. We doubt if there
-ver was a case more strongly pre
sented. The government had the
very best legal talent employed to
aid its own apponited officer, and the
they all did their full duty can not
be gainsaid. The questioning of the
defence and the arguments to the jury
by the government's representatives,
together with the Judges charge
prove conclusively that nothing was
left undone to bring the guilty to jus
tice. Judge B3rawley's charge was
one of the grandest we have ever read.
He very properly rebuked the drag
ging in of politics and race prejudice
into the case, and he also expressed
his disapproval of the government's
course in thrusting an obnoxious per
son upon a community, and made it
plain that the appointive power can
not escape censure for the outrage
perpetrated upon Lake City by the
appointment of an offensive negro to
the postmastership. All that could
be done, was done to convince the
jury that the parties on trial wvere
guilty of a crime, not only horrible,
but one of the most blood curdling
that has ever happened in the history
of the State. The testimony for the
government was strong,n otwithstand
ing its being hampered with a witness,
whom every body believes testified
for what he could make out of the
case. In other words he was regard
ed a man who would sell the life of
another for money, and in our opin
ion, had the defence relied more
strongly upon the prejudice that
Newham's villiany produced, than
they did upon the alibis picked up
in the woods and around the fish
ponds; the defaced, changed or erased
court records, and private account
books, and the unnatural story of sit
ting up with another man's sick wife,
they would today be at their homes
free and forever clear of the crime
charged, as far as an earthly court is
concerned. The lawyers for the de
fence put up a good strong fight, but
the defendants in their zeal to secure
their freedcm failed to convince tl-'
entire jury of their innocence and .%
result is that the whole thing will
have to be done over again.
'Who killed Baker is what the gov
ernment wants to know, and what it
proposes to find out; it does not want
to punish an innocent man, this is
clear from the fact, that as soon as it
failed to show proof against some of
the prisoners, such were discharged.
We differ with our esteemed contem
porary the Charleston News and
Courier of last Monday, when it said:
"The only thing that stood between
them and the punishment provided by
law was political and race prejudice.
It is true, why not say so?" Because
seven men on that jury did not look
at the evidence as did the News and
Courier is no just ground for the he-,
lief that it was "political and race
prejudice." Go through the entire
State among those who read the tes
timony as published by the News and
Courier, and it will be found that
people differ, some believe that every
mother's son of the defendants are
guilty of the crime charged and oth
ers do not believe any such thing,
and as it is with the people through
ot~t the country, so it must have been
with the jury who had an opportuni
ty to look into the faces of the wit
nesses, and judge as to their manner
We do not believe it is true that
between the defendants and the ,pun
ishment provided by law" and we do
not think our contemporary is doing
the jury and the white men of the
State justice when it so proclaims to
the world. Was there any room for
a reasonable doubt as to the guilt of
the parties charged? It only needs a
reading of the conflicting testimony
to convince one of this. We admit
that some of the witnesses for the de
fense did not show up well, but when
it is considered that some of the gov
ernment's witnesses showed up badly
also, it strikes us that a jury could
conscientiously do just what was
done-fail to agree, because some
would be convinced of guilt; others
would have an honest doubt and mis
trial must follow.
OUR BUYS ARE HOME.
The Second Regiment has been
mustered out of service and the men
have put down their Krag-Jorgensons
and their swords to take hold of the
plow handles, or the pen. They had
no opportunity to show their mettle,
because when mustered in, the Span
ish-American war was viitually over,
fighting bad ceased. We have no
doubt that this was a disappointment
to the men, especially those who ap
plied for enlistment at the firt call for
volunteers. As it was, the months of
soldiering was a valuable experience
to many of the men, and the effect of
the service will follow them thiough
life. Those who went from this see
tion came back looking bright and
happy with much to relate to their
kin and friends, but we have yet to
hear one of them say they would vol
unteer again if another call should be
made; they seem to have had a suf
ficiency of a monotonous garrison
life, but had they experienced one or
two battles, from what old soldiers
teli us, there would be a fascination
about it, that wouid have made the
men feel altogether different. We are
glad the soldiers are home again, and
we hope their experience will be of
value to them.
The crimes committed by Sam
Hose near Newnan, Georgia, were
such as to arouse the passions of peo
ple, and no punishment was too se
vere for the wretch, but the mob's
savagery is so sickening and revolt
ing that they do not deserve any sym
pathy. A crime as that committed
by Hose will not wait for the slow pro
cess of the law, people will not reason
under such circumstances but nt the
same time, there should at least be
reason enough in a civilixed land to
mete out the punishment in a civil
ized manner. The sheriff who turned
the prisoner over possibly could not
help himself, nor is it surprising that
the crowd would not lhsten to Gov
ernor Atkinson, but it is shocking
that in a land of schools and churches
people will become so frenzied as to
resort to brutality that would be
scorned by savages.
According to a recent decision of
the State Supreme Court, a county
where a lynching takes place is re
sponsible to the relatives of the party
lynched in an amount of two thou
sand dollars, thus making it too ex
pensive to take the law out of its reg
ular channels. Lynching ought to be
stopped, and we believe when the
taxpayers find that to take the law
into their own bands, it means addi
tional taxes to come out of their pock
ets, they wvill permit the law to take
its course. What we cannot un
derstandi, is how a verdict will be ob
tained against a county where there
has been a lynching. If a man is
lynched in a county, it is not at all
likely that the jurors will render a
verdict or judgment against them
selves, and we presume, before the
representatives of the party lynched,
can secure a judgment against a coun
ty, the case will have to be tried be
fore a jury and probably before a
jury and who engaged in the lynch
ing. The intention of the law is good
but it appears to us, unless there is
some legislation to remedy the de
fet, the law is a nullity.
(From our Regnlar Correspondent.)
Washington, April 21.-The Mc
Kinleyites are jubilant because their
bluff intended to drive Czar Reed out
of Congress has succeeded, and Reed
has accepted an offer to join a New
York law firm. This means a new
deal all around in the House and a
general shaking up of the desirable
chairmanships, many of which were
held in the last House by men wvho
were no more subservient to the ad
ministration than Reed himself was.
All this will be changed in the organ
ization of the present House, if pres
ent plans of the administration can
be carried out, and no man will get
anything desirable in the way of a
chairmanship who does not wear the
McKinley collar. There are about a
dozen Republicans who eonsider
themselves candidates for Speaker of
the House; but they are wasting
their time. The Speaker and all the
important chairmanships of commit-'
tees will be selected by Boss H-anna'
and Mr. McKinley and all the Repub
lican caucus will have to do will be to
ratify the selections. There will, of
course, be Republican objection to!
this programme, but without aI
stronger leadership than it is likely
to have, it will not be able to change
it. A friend of Mr. Reed says that
he intends as a farewvell shot at the
administration to take a hand in the'
election of his successor. If he only
would, there would be a lively scrap,
but as his law firm is to make a spe
cialty of coi poration practice his part
ners will doubtless be able to con
offend such an influential corporation
magnate as Mark Hanna.
Hon. Bartlett Tripp, the American
member of the Samoan Commission,
which will leave San Francisco next
week, on the auxiliary cruiser Bad
ger, doesn't regard the trip as any
tbing more than a pleasant summer
excursion. He said before leaving
Washington: "I do not believe it will
take any extended period for the rep
resentatives of the three governments
interested to agree on some policy
that will be satisfactory to all. There
are no insurm.ountable difficulties in
the way of an understanding that
will protect everybody. It isn't as
though the mastery of a continent
was involved; the comparative small
ness of the interests at Apia is a
pretty sure guaranty against trouble
of a serious sort." There is more in
terest in the result of the commis
sion's investigation of the charge
that German treachery was respon
sible for the ambuscading of Ameri
can and English marines than in any
thing else it has to do. Nobody
seeins to care a continental what the
commission does about the govern
ment of the Samoan islands.
A sharp reprimand to the military
censor at Manila was sent by the War
Depart ment, because be allowed the
remarks of Gen. Lawton about 100,
000 men being needed in the Philip
pines to be cabled to this country; it
is said that Gen. Shafter also got a
hint fromi the same source that it
would be necessary to kill off half of
the Filipinos before we could keep
peace on the islands.
Mr. McKinley has decided that it
would be bad politics to call for more
volunteers to be sent to the Philip
ippines, and ha. ordered tiht the vol
unteers now over there shall be sent
home as fast as vessels to bring them
are available. Regulars will be sent
to take their places, as it is not con
sidered safe to reduce the number o"
men under coiiiman-1 of O;is, even
during the rainy season, soon to be
There was quite a shock in Wash
inton when Adiniral Dewey reported
that Lieut. Gilmore and 14 of the
crew of the Yorktown had been, while
away from the ship on a launch, eith

both pleasant and interesting. Thiis was
the closing exercises of Miss Marion E.

cal invitation on W:ednesday night. I he
exercises weie held in the Academy build

an occasion. The following was the pro

drill; Miss Daisy Weeks performed while
the children sang and Miss Elmna Geddings

We feel tempted to say something spe
cial about some who recited and sang, but
that wouldn't be fair to the others, so w'e
will just state that the whole program was
carried out in a maniner worthy of Packs
yille, her people, and above all, the teacher,
Miss Marion Kruse. Some of the children
who took part were wee tots.
'There is one feature of the program
which we can't resist touching on specially
-that was the drill. While the sweet notes
of the organ pealed forth the stirring strain s
of a march, twelve school girls with pretty
garnds in their hands, went throngh the
intricate figures of the drill. '[he sight wats
a pretty one; yes,..to a person like your
corespondent who is quite fond of school
girls, the drill presented a sight not only
pretty. but inspiring.
tIn his remarks that night Mr. Dunhap
gave utterance to an idea that will give
food for thought to many of our readers
le said he was hearing a great deal abti
cotton factories, but lie would not give onie
good school for sreveral factories. This idea
is ent irely correct andl your corresp->ndenut

Editor THE TIMFs:
Please allow me space for a few
words about the Timrod Revival.
An association has been formed which
has in view a two-fold purpose-first,
to collect into one volume all of the
poems of Henry Timrod, and sec
ond, to erect to the memory of the
poet a monument in keeping with
the genius which shone forth in
verse, whose excellence has excited
the admiration of the brightest stars
in the literary firmament. An unfor
tunate combination of events has
obscured the fame of South Caro
lina's greatest poet. and although
late in coming, this effort on the part
of the men composing the association
is most praiseworthy. Such men as
James H. Carlisle, W. M. Grier, F. C.
Woodward, Asbury Coward, D. B.
Johnson, Win. A, Courtney and a
score of others of equal eminence,
have pledged the money to bring
out this edition; the low price will
place it within the reach of ahmost
everyone. It is an elegantly bound
book, and contains poems by Timrod
which have never before been pub
lished. The book is now ready to be
Every cent of profit realized by the
sale of the book will go to the Tim
rod memorial fund, and every one
who purchases a copy will contribute
to this fund.
Now, as agent for this book in
Clarendon county, I appeal to its in
telligent reading men and women to
aid in this worthy cause. Not for
myself do I make this appeal, but for
the sake of our dead poet whose
genius demands this tardy recogni
tion. To this end I ask the aid of the
Manning Literary Club of Manning,
which must be in sympathy with this
cause, and to every citizen of Claren
don who would aid in perpetuating
the memory of Henry Timrod.

Speci.a to THa TIMEs:
I siee ImI the Lhst issue of THE TIMEs the
Supervisor's qiarterly report as to how the
tuo:iev of this county is being distributed
in the way of county expenses. If I am
wrong I hope that the good people of this
conunty will pardon me for saying that I
think that the county chtima are overrated.
In the first place I notice in te last report
that there was $593.30 paid out just to on
erate the chaingang three months, and I
will venture to say that $100 will pay for
what work the ebaingang has done in Sa
lem in the past three month-; in fact the
chaingang has not been over in Salem since
last faill, yet Salem pays her pro rata shaie
of taxes. 1 think that the county commis
sioners ought to consider the claims and
look into them before they approve them.
GentlereL, do not think that I am tmak
ing any charges against tay one, but 1 do
claim that the county funds ought to be ap
pilied to the best advantage and not to
every pop claim that is presented to the
board. I know that it tames money to run
expenses of this county and a lot of it, but
let the officers apply it in a saving wy and
