The Inquiry Into the Complaint Against Mag
istrate Ragin-His Resignation.
A complaint against Magistrate A.
P. Ragin of Pinewood was sent to Gov
ernor cISweeney, and this was refer
red to the Senator for investigation.
The charges in brief are. that Magis
trate Ragin refused to permit W.
D. Barwick to bring a suit, in his
court against L. S. Barwick. and that
the said Magistrate certified to the sig
nature of Mrs. Barwick as having been
signed by her before him, when the
fact was that she did not sign the paper
at all. The Senator appointed last Sat
urday for the investigation. and at his
invitation Representatives Richardson.
Jones and Woods were present and
acted with them. The party who made
the complaint and the magistrate. were
present. and each were represented by
counsel. who conducted the examnina
tion: the delegation sitting as a jury.
It was made satisfactory to appear to
the delegation, that in the matter of
refusing to bring the suit, the magis
trate acted as he thought was his right,
and if he had substantial reasons for
believing that the suit was pending in
another court his refusal was proper.
The charge against him which was re
garded most serious, was his making a
false certificate: the evidence showed
clearly that the magistrate violated the
law iii this matter, but the circum
stances convinced the delegation that
Magistrate Ragin thought the matter
was all right, as the name signed, was
really signed by the husband of the
party purporting to have signed it.
It was a careless method of executing
the law, and one that in some instances
might prove damaging to property in
terests and rights of individuals.
There was no criminal intention in
the matter nor any wilful official mis
conduct. This was the conclusion ar
rived at by the delegation after hearing
both sides. Magistrate Ragin then
said that he had been for sometime con
templating resigning his office and he
took this occasion to do so. Mr. Ragin
came before the delegation with some
strong letters from the people of Pine
wood endorsing him as an officer, and
urging the delegation to recommend his
retention in office, but there was noth
ing for the delegation to do after the
resignation had been tendered, but to
recommend its acceptance which they
did. The investigation took about four
Pinewood S. C. April 7th, 1900.
To His Excellency Governor M. B.
McSweeney, Columbia, S. C.
Dear Sir: I have contemplated for
some time resigning the position I have
held as Magistrate at Pinewood Clar
endon Co., and I do so n6w upon the
finding of the delegation that I have
been guilty of no official misconduct
under the charges made against me by
Mr. W. D. Barwick.
Your Excellency can readily under
tand that this step could not have
been taken while under a cloud. I beg
that this. my resignation may be acted
upon at an early day.

[n the Matter of Charges Preferred
Against Magistrate A. P. Ragin of
ro His Excellency M. B. McSweeney
Dear. Sir: Complaint being lodged
-ith your Excellency against Magis
rate A. P. Ragin, of Pinewood, this
ounty, charging official misconduct
gainst said officer, and the same hay
ng been referred to me for investiga
~ion. I beg leave to submit the follow
ng as my report:
Upon receipt of the papers in the
bove stated matter. I immediately
ummoned the entire legislative dele
ation tonether with all of the parties
oncerne2: in order that the party
3harged might come preparti to make
ais defense I sent him a copy of the
yharges. Saturday April 7th, 1900,
~vas the time appointed for the investi
ation; the entire delegation was pres
nt. and so were the parties in interest;
:he were also represented by counsel.
Evi'dence adduced showed that Magis
Irate Ragin refused to act in a matter
rought before him for his official ac
:ion, and we are satisfied his refusal
was not with any corrupt purpose, but
ecause he thought it was a right with
n his discretion. This matter was re
orted to the grand jury, and they em
Sodied the complaint in their present
nent. and no action was taken thereon
y the court. The evidence further
;owed that said Magistrate certified
fficially to a signature on a bond, when
he fact was the signature was not
vritten or acknowledged before him
> the party whose name appeared as
1aving signed the same: that the name
~eferred to was written by the husband
)f the party -whose name was affixed,
he husband claiming to be the agent
)f his wife.
In making this certificate the Mag- I
strate did wrong, but we are satisfied, I
.t was done without any criminal in
;ent, that he knowing the parties did
ot think he was committing a wrong,
when he permitted the husband to sign
he wife's name in his presence.
After hearing the evidence, the del
3gation reached the conclusion that
N1agistrate Ragin is not guilty of any
;silful official missconduct, or any crin
inal intent, and inasmuch as the said
Magistrate has tendered his resigna
~ion, which is hereto attached, the
lelegation unanimously recommend
hat your Excellency accept the same.

resentative store of Clarendon and vicinity and we extend you a broad invitation

We have them at right figures in everything mentionable.
Only the correct things in Hats. Felts and Straws at cheaper figures than
you pay for old style and out-of-date stuff elsewhere.
We did not buy our stock a year ago. and those who did have only the rem-*
naants of last season's stock, for common sense will teach you that no house can
buy goods before they are sent out from the mills and get the newest things,
changing as often as styles do.
We buy our goods in season, thereby getting the latest ideas, and we never
talk high price goods, but LOW stuff all the time, hepce our store is the place.
