For exercising his own judg
ment and in the performance of
his duty as he saw it for the best
interests of his constituency,
Senatos McLaurin has certainly
created a big sensation and has
brought down upon his devoted
head the unfavorable comments
of the moss-back and hide-bound
journals of this and adjoining
The refreshing and manly in
dependence of Senator McLaurin
on many crucial occasions, how
ever, in refusing to surrender
.-. isconvictions on national issue
and blindly follow the lead of
party whips regardless of what
influence such action might exert
upon the business interests of
the country, will in the end win
for him the high regard and es
teem of the more advanced
thinkers of the age, and history
will yet write his name high
upon the scroll of fame as one of
the profoundest and most liberal
minded statesmen and the most
progressive Democrat the South
has ever sent to Congress.
Those who have risen up
against him and are crying so
lustily "Crucify him! Crucify
him!" are, as a rule, first the
most narrow minded, illiberal
spirited and uninformed element
of the party. They can be ap
propriately classed as the old
time and sworn enemies of that
faction of the State Democratic
party which has elevated him to
his honorable position. They
are of that household of faith
whose essential tenet is their di
vine right to interpret the stand
ards of the party and a refusal
to accept their interpretation as
infallible is, in their opinion, at
least, traitorous to the party and
hence worthy of the severest
condemnation; and second, are
politicians whose dearest hope is
to be benefited by the downfall
of Mr. McLaurin whose term in
the Senate has been marked with
a brilliancy that even the mis
representations of his detractors
can not dim.
His severest critics are those
who are raking over the ashes of
the dead past and are endeavor
ing to revive the days when the
slave-holding Democracy was en
thr-oned and dictated the ,politi
cal policy of the Southern States,
making the blind allegiance and
implicit obedience to their man
dates, whether right or wrong,
the unvarying test of one's loy
alty to the party's principles.
They have seemingly forgotten
that the days of star chambers
have passed and for one to do
his own thinking and to give ex
pressions to his own opinions is
no longer a crime against high
But is Mr. McLaurin a traitor
to his party? Has he in the
least betrayed the confidence of
his constituency, and has he gone
back on the platform upon
which he was elected? We sub
mit that he is not and has not.
He is a legitimate offspring of
the new school of Southern
Democracy, which has for its
object the upbuilding of the man
ufacturing,.agricultural and in
dustrial interests of the New
South, and he stands pledged to
the Democratic voters of this
State to support any and all
measures tending toward foster
ing and protecting these indus
tries. On this promise and on
these very issues he was called
from the lower house to assume
graver and more important du
ties in the upper house of Con
gress. He made his canvass for
the Senate on a clearly defined
protective tariff, and incidentally
a ship subsidy platform, and on
that platform, after his recordi
had been attacked from one end
of the State to the other by
shrewd politicians, was trium
phantly nominated in a Demo
cratic primary, defeating his
three .strong opponents in the.
first round. He has stood square
ly and uncompromisingly on that
platform from that day until now
and his every vote has been con
sistent and in perfect harmony
with that platform. In no in
stance has he proven a traitor
and under no circumstances has
he betrayed his constituents.
His course in the Senate has
been manly, upright and consis
tent with his campaign promises.
In conclusion we would re
spectfully remind those who are
hugging the delyision to their
breast that Mr. McLaurin is a
dead duck in the political arena,
that they will surely realize, if
they are alive, that the result of
the Democratic primary will re
veal the'surprising fact that he
is a pretty lively corpse.-Lex

What bid fair to be a wheel-chockino?
court turns out to be the most rapid
moving institution ever known in our
court house before. His Honor R. C.
Watts the presiding Judge opened the
proceedings promptly Monday morning,
and both the grand and petit jurors re
sponded promptly to their names,
which greatly aided His Honor and
Solicitor Wilson in the organization of
the court. As soon as the grand jury
was empanelled Judge Watts appointed
Mr. R. S. Fleming foreman, but Mr.
Fleming asked to be excused as he
lived a great distance from the court
house and the position might prove an
inconvenience to him. The Judge ap
preciating Mr. Fleming's condition,
stated that he only desired the foreman
should be a business man, and as the
members knew the composition of their
body better than he, the suggestion
was made by him that they retire and
make a selection. This was done and
in a few moments they returned an
nouncing Mr. A. I. Barron foreman.
Judge Watts delivered the usual for
mal charge, calling atttention to the
duties devolved upon a grand jury and
defining their powers and privileges.
The first case tried was against John
Lewis and Bill Conyers charged with
grand larceny. Lewis pleaded guilty
and Conyers was put upon trial and
acquitted. Immediately after the ac
guittal of Conyers, Lewis was sentenced
to the chaingang for two years and six
Then came a perfect avalanche of
pleading guilty "and ask for mercy
from the court."
George Epperson, resisting an officer,
sentenced to pay a fine of $40 or work
,n chaingang for 3 months.
Guy Jackson, orand larceny, to chain
gang for a perio of 10 months.
Richmond McDuffie, burglary and
Larceny 3 months on chaingang.
Grant Nelson, larceny of live stock 12
nonths on chaingang and pay a fine
Micheal Lourie and Lawrence De
Lane, grand larceny. Lowrie got 15
nonths and DeLaine 18 months on
Goodman Taylor, househreaking and
arceny. He entered a house and stole
i Bible; 7 months on chaingang.
True bills were also returned in the
Walter Epps, murder..
William Scott, assault and battery,
ntent to kill.
Ed Dingle, murder.
When Grant Nelson pleaded guilty
md received his sentence Alex Tindal,
a very respectable colored farmer, ap
aroached the Solicitor and asked, "Mr.
Wilson if I'buy that nigger, by paying
bis fine would the State protect me?"
The Solicitor asked Tindal if he had
been reading about t-he Anderson stock
de cases, and advised him to not yen
ure into such a scheme. Tindal evi
iently wanted a laborer, and he did
ot think there would be anything
wrong in paying the fellow off from the
:haingang and get his labor, probably
:heaper than a regularly hired man
w-ould cost. But the Solicitor's frown
yonvinced Tindal that to establish a
small size stockade on his place might
2t be tolerated by the law.
Tuesday morning the court proceeded
with the trial of Walter Epps, charged
with the murder of William Evans of
Some time last November Evans, the
eceased, was found dead in a shanty
:ear Alderman's mill, with a bullet
ole in his head. Epps had been stay
Eng in the shanty and'he was arrested
n suspicion. The testimony was en
irely circumstantial and parts of it
pointed with suspicion towards the pris
>ner, but the jury very properly gave
b~im the benefit of the doubt and ren
ered a verdict of not guilty.
M. C. Galluchat, Esq., in behalf of
George Epperson, who had been con
ricted and sentenced to three months
>n the chaingang or to pay a fine of $40,
etitioned the court to permit the said
Epperson to enter into bond for the
payment of the fine. The judge grant
d the petition, and upon Epperson giv
:ng bond for $100, he wili have until the
ext term of the court to pay the tine.
The next case was against Chovine
refferson and Jeff Keels, charged with
yreaking into the depot at Summerton
md staling therefrom a jug of whisky.
Jefferson pleaded guilty and was sen
~enced to eight months on the chain
rang. Keels, his partner, was put on

The case against J. W. Heriott,
~harged with the killing of Win. Wil

~uittal. The testimony showed clearly
hat the killing was accidental, and the
ury in a few moments returned a ver
lict of Not Guilty.
