DID JUSTICE MISCARRY?
Some of those christian bretl
ern who alivised Rev. Wm. E.
Johnson to slay Willie Bellinger,
at Bamberg should write to the
Chinese minister Wu Ting Fang,
for a copy of his address on
-The teachings of Confusius,
and from it they might gather
ilf:ormation: concerning the gol
den rule "Do not to others what
you would not wish them to do
to you." The celebrated murder
trial ended last Sunday morning
and a jury of twelve men by their
verdict proclaimed that Rev. W.
E. Johnson, a Baptist preacher
who weighed near 200 pounds,
was justified in taking a shot
gun from the hands of friends
the day before, and with it slay
Willie Bellinger, a frail young
man whose weight was about 110
pounds, for applying an epithet
From the testimony it seems
that trouble grew out of the
painting of a line fence and John
son ordered the negro who was
doing the painting out of his
premises, Bellinger ordered the
negro to continue the work and
cursed Johnson, whereupon
Johnson armed with a borrowed
pistol challenged Bellinger to go
out on the street; Bellinger ac
cepted the banter and Johnson
although big enough to have
easily handled Bellinger, refused
to continue the matter further,
giving as a reason that Bel
linger was armed, and re
turned to his premises. A
Col. Counts and a Mr. Sanders
figured extensively in the un
fortunate affair, they were dea
cons of Johnson's church, we
think, and day before the killing
Sanders loaded some shells and
Counts carried a double barrel
shot gun to the parsonage, the
next day Johnson and Bellinger
saw each other at the postoffice.
but nothing occured between
them, Johnson went home, and
as Bellinger was returning to
his home leisurely walking along
reading a newspaper, Johnson
came out of the parsonage, and
according to some of the wit
nesses, he got behind a telephone
pole, used it for a rest and fired.
and immediately after, Belliniger
fired several pistol shots. It is
very evident that friend's Counts
and Sanders busied themselves
more towards bringing on trou
ble than they did towards avert
ing it, and if these officious breth
em had not loaded the shells and
cardied the murderous weapon,
in all probability the blood of
Willie Bellinger would not be on
Rev. WV. IE. Johnson 's hands to
day. On account of the standing
of the parties we kept a close
watch on the proceedings and
from the testimony as published,
we reached the conclusion that
the preacher contributed largely
to provoking Bellinger, whom
knew had no liking for him, and
while Bellinger was wrong in
cursing the man, the wrong was
not so great as to warrant the
taking of life: the jury in ac
quitting him must have based
their verdict on evidence which
did not appear in the papers.
The jury was from 6 o'clock
Saturday evening until 5 o'clock
Sunday morning in the endeavor
to reach a verdict of acquittal.
It is said when the ver-dict was
announced Mr. Johnson took it
calmly. and filled his pulpit the
same morning. The despatch
did not say that his text was
"Thou shalt not kill." The fact
of the jury who heard all of the
evidence hanging for a bout 12
hours in trying to reach a conclu
sion will always leave an im
pression that Rev. WV. E. John
son's usefulness as a inister of
the gospel is ended. Life is cer
tainly cheap whlen juries acquit
on such testimlony as was 'I gie
to the press.

Some of the politicians, who,
like Micawber are waiting for
soniething to turn up, are very
anxious about Senator McLau
in's future. The Senator has
two more years of his present
term to serve, and by that time
the people will be able to arrive
at a conclusion whether they
want to continue him in service
or not. and all the anonymous
interviews, such as recently ap
peared in the Columbia State,
seeking to make McLaurin's re
election an issue in our State
politics will avail nothing. We
venture to say the mysterious per
son interviewed by the "State" is
promised a regular salary of so
much per week by that news
paper, and he is getting himself
in shape to do the "booming"
act for a candidate who is after
McLaurin's political shoes.
It is the quintessence of folly
to suggest that McLaurin lead
the Republican party in this
State because, he happens to
agree with the present adminis
tration in one or two of its meas
ures. Why was not Tillman
called upon to lead the Republi
can party when he openly de
clared himself a protectionist.
Was not "protection" the main
issue with the Republican party
in 1892? McLaurin is a Demo
crat and a statesman, like Hoar
of Massachusetts, who is a Re
publican he has the courage of
his convictions and, when his
party is wrong and he believes
it, he says so regardless of con
sequences. Hoar of Massachu
setts fought his party and its
administration with all his soul
on the Philippine question, be
cause he believed his party
wrong, but Massachusetts does
not question Hoar's fealty to the
Republican party on account of
it; on the other hand he will be
re-elected without opposition.
Why? Because the intelligence
of that'cuitured State appreciate
a Representative who is not a
McLaurin has stood squarely
with democracy on every party
measure. He disagreed with. a
majority of the Democratic mem
bers of the Senate on the Phil
ippine question and instead of
sneezing when the majority took
snuff, he came boldly out, gave
to the country his views and his
reasons for such. Those views
have been overwhelmingly sus
tained by the voters of this coun
try, and we believe when the
time comes for the selection of a
Senator, the voters of this State
will consider more. the r-ecord
made by Senator McLaurin, than
the efforts of politicians to dis
place him. William Jennings
Bryan, was the acknowledged
leader of the Democratic party.
He advised the confirmation of
the Paris treaty, and notwith
standing this, because McLaurin
and Bryan agreed that the Paris
treaty should be confirmed, the
politicians of South Carolina are
endeavoring to place McLaurin
in the Republican party, while
they hurrahed for Bryan as the
fountain source for Democratic
:octrine. If McLaurin is a Re
publican because he voted for
the Paris treaty, then Bryan is
i Republican, because he, asithe
Democracy's leader advised it.
