Died yesterday morning in this town
Mrs. J. S. Downing, a lady who was a
stranaer here. Her husband was en
gage in the lumber business in George
town, and that city not agreeing with
his wife, he sacrificed his business and
moved to Manning. Mrs. Downing's
condition seemed to improve until an
other malady seized her, and with all
that a devoted husband and kind
neighbors could do she breathed her
last yesterday morning. She was 28
years old. The funeral took place this
morning in Manning cemetery.

One of the sa'idest deaths that has

Friday at her home about three miles
North of Manning. Mrs. Florenqe
Bradham, wife of Mr. R. J. Bradham,
aged about 40 years answered the sum
mons. The funeral took place in the
Manning cemetery Rev. J. 0. Gough
conducting the service. The grave
was surrounded by sorrowing relatives
and friends who with bowed heads
and heavy hearts listened at the solemn
services. This death is peculiarly sad
because the deceased was much be
loved and her being taken away from
nine children the youngest an infant,
carries a gloom into that motherless
household which will be sorely felt.

A Better Train Service.
There has for sometime been a move
ment on foot to secure better railroad
facilities for this place, and the au
thorities have been disposed to do
something for us, but the difficulty has
been to effect a schedule which would
not entail a great loss. In convers~a
tion with a high official the writer wtas
told that on the 10th, inst., a change
would take place which would give
this town a daily freight service with
accommodation car attached, but on
account of their being no certainty, we
refrained from saying anything about
it prefering to wait until the proper
authorities had acted. On last Monday
Ia new schedule went into effect, which
Igives us a freight service with coach
attached both ways. Train 82 going to
Sumter leaves Manning 7:20 a. m. and
train 83 to lanes leaves Manning 9:55
a. m. arriving at Lanes 11:55 a. m.
This gives passengers going towards
Florence the relief from having to
spend the night at Lanes. Passengers
taking 83 catch a mail train at Lanes
at 5:55, arriving in Charleston 7:40 p. m.
We had hoped the authorities could
have seen their way clear to have 83
connect with train 51 from Florence
which passes Lanes 11:16 a. m. this
would put passengers from here in
Charleston at 1 o'clock p. in. giving
them several hours to transact business
without having tg stay in Charleston
two nights. We believe the railroad
people will do this by shortening up
the schedules; as it is now, the tramn
for Charleston passes 39 minutes before
the freight on this road gets to Lanes,
which we believe will be remedied
shortly, as we know that Mr. J. R.
Kenly the General Manager of the
-Coast Line is disposed to be as accom
-odating to the public as the earnings
of the road will.permnit.

His Honor 0. W. Buchannon opened
the summer term here last Monday
morning with the usual preliminaries
attending the opening a court of gen
eral sessions. The grand jury after
being charged brought in true bills in
the following cases:
Eugene Lowry, murder. The pris
oner was arraigned.
William Jackson, Burglary and Lar
ceny tried and found not guilty.
Adger Bowman Larceny of live
stock, pleaded guilty and sentenced to
9 months on ch: ' gang.

Assault and Battery high and aggra
vated nature, in two cases, one in which
the defendants are charged with as
saulting Mr. I. B. White, and the
other is where Miss Lizzie White was
the victim of the defendants wrath.
The trial of these cases were merged
into one as they are the outcome of the
same difficulty. We know of no case
that has ever been tried in this court
house which was more deplorable; re
spectable people and neighbors to be
thus embroiled is to be regretted and
it is a great pity for all concerned that
an amicable adjustment of their trou
bles was not arranged before the case
got into the court. The trial took up a
good part of Monday and was not con
cluded until yesterday. The jury ren
dered verdict of not guilty.
George Epperson who was tried, con
victed and sentenced at the last term,
and who, through counsel succeeded
in securing the enforcement of sen
tence suspended, in order to give him a
chance to pay the fine, had not paid the
promised fine and was surrendered by
his bondsmen and put on the chaingang
to serve a sentence of 3 months. Robt.
A. White one of the bondsmen went
after and arrested Epperson in Camden.
Lewis Griffin charged with grand
larceny pleaded guilty, and was sen
tenced to one year on chaingang.
Frank Reed convicted assault and
battery of high and aggravated nature.
sentenced to pay a fine of $40 or serve
3 months on chaingang.

GRAND JURY PRESENTMENT.
To the Hon. O. W. Buchanan, Presid- I
ing Judge, June Term of Court, 1901: 1
We, the grand jury drawn for the
year 1901, would beg to hand you this
our second presentment:
First-All bills of indictment handed
us by the solicitor have had our careful
attention and reports have been made
At the last term of court a committee
was appointed to investigate the con
dition of the county jail, court house I
and records. This committee will re
port at next term of court their findings
as to the county records.
We find that the court house is kept
in fair condition, but the county jail is
in deplorable condition-a disgrace to
our county and civilization. We are
aware of the fact that the ouestion of a 1
new jail was submitted to the people at
the last election and voted down, be- 1
cause comparatively few of the voters
of this county have ever been in the
jail to inspect it and very few know
anything of its condition. ff they knew
the present condition of it not another
year would pass before they would pe- 1
tition our Representatives for a new
jail at the earliest time possible to se
ure same. We ask our Representa
tives to try to formulate some plan by
which they can secure for us a new.
jail without burdening our people with
too much taxes.
We can assure our Representatives 1
that any action taken by them towards
securing a new jail will be approved by
every decent and respectable person im 1
We feel positive that no respectable
voter of this county would oppose or
even vote against a new jail if they~
would spend ten minutes inspecting the1
This is a matter of great and grave
importance and we sincerely hope our 1
Representatives will investigate it and
take immediate steps looking toward
some legislation at the next meeting of
the General Assembly.
We have been handed by the honor
able Court charges made against a cer
tain magistrate of this county, and not 1
having the time to give this matter the
proper attention at this term of court,
we have appointed a committee to in-1
vestigate same consisting of Messrs. R.
J. Alderman, R. S. Fleming, W. T.
Blackwell, I. J. Tomlinson, and A. I.
Barron. This committee will report its
findings to us at next term of court.
All matters brought before the grand
jury not herein reported upon will be
reported at next term of court.
A charge brought before the grand
jury at the last term of court, charging1
the County Commissioners with having.
committed an illegal act, has had our
careful consideration. We appointed 1
a committee to investigate and report
at this term of court. We find, through
legal advise, that the County Commis- 1
sioners did not, commit an illegal act,
but we have found by an investigation
as follows, hereto attached and made
part of this presentment:
Manning, S. C., May 24, 1901.
We, the committee appointed by the
grand jury of Clarendon county at the<
March term of court to investigate the 1
matter of Public Printing, find:
I. Two members of the Board of
County Commissioners appeared before 1
us andi stated their reasons for award
ing the public printing to "The Man
ning Times," Mr. Louis Appelt, editor t
and proprietor, for the sum of $225,
when they had made them a bid by The
Manning'Publishing Company, as fol- 1
"We ask at your hands that all pub
lic printing for this county be offereda
to both papers alike, each getting one-i
half the usual prices paid. Should this
plan not be acceptable to your honor
able Board, then we would make as our
bid, one-half the prices now prevailing,
and do all the printing, binding our
selves under any reasonable contract.
" THE FARMER.' t
" Published by Manning Publishing
Company, E. J. Browne, Editor.
"P. S.-In case your Board requires,
a definite bid, intending to give the3
printing to the lowest bidder, regard
less of the above proposition, then we
would make our figures for the entire
printing for one hundred and fifty ($150)
They stated that their reason for do
ing so'was that they did not consider
"The Farmer," printed by the Man
ning Publishing Company, to be an es
tablished paper, but we find that they
did not investigate to ascertain if it was
a responsible paper and could carry out
any contract or contracts it made.
The members who appeared before us
claimed that if they had known " The
Farmer" to be a responsible paper they
would have endeavored to save the
county the difference now paid to " The
Manning Times," and the amount
" The Farmer" offered to contract to
where it is hoi! all the year round
sells better than any where else
inthe world. So don't stop taking
it in sununer, or you will lose

The Grand Jury as a Poultice Maker. 4
The grand jury was called upon to
nvestigate a complaint made at the
pring term alleging that the County 4
.ommissioners had committed an ille- 4
al act in awarding the county print
ng, and a committee from that body 4
onsisting of A. I. Barron, R. J. Alder-s
nan and E. P. Geddings was appointed
o investigate the complaint. This sub- 4
ommittee made an investigation as 4
heir report shows, and they found that
he complaint was not true. The Coun- 4
y Commissioners did not commit an 4
llegal act. But this committee went
urther. and looked into the financial 4
-esponsibility of the stockholders of the
danning Publishing Company, and
und the members of that corpora- 4
ion able to give a bond for "thirty .
housand dollars if necessary," and
)ecause the people owning stock in 4
,be Manning Publishing Company are 4
>ossessed of wealth, the committee
eached the conclusion that the Com- 4
nissioners did not exercise proper dis
retion or economy in the matter of
warding the county printing.
It is not often that a finding of a
rand jury is criticised, but we have
Lo hesitancy in criticising this one, for 4
he reason that its findings was a dis
nissal of the complaint Todged with
hem against the Commissioners as un- 4
ounded in fact, but in going beyond 4
he complaint they were required to A
nvestigate, they advertise the finan
ial responsibility of not the Manning 4
Xublishing Corapany, but some of the A
eople who own stock in it, which has ~
othing to do with the case unless the 4
~rand jury felt it to be its duty to pro-.
~ide an ointment to sooth a soreness a
f disappointment.. 4
The editor of this paper claims that A
he Commissioners did use proper bus
ness discretion in awarding the print-4
ng, because they gave the printing toA
newspaper which had the advantage 3
if years of establishment, a fixed circu-4
ation and a satisfactory service, at a
ate cheaper than the rates allowed by 2
The newspaper applying for the
ounty printing and failed to get it had
een in existence about fifteen months
.nd during that short life had changed
ands and editors several times, un
ii it became a corporation with a
apital stock of $3,000, made up of
umerous stockholders who are only
-esponsible for their stock-this is what
tock companies are for-to limit liabil
ty. Therefore, a man may be worth a
nilion dollars and only own five dollars
n stock-his liability only reaches his
tock. But the Commissioners were
iot called upon to investigate the lia
iity of a stock company, and no pub
ic record shows such .liability. The
uestion for the Commissioners was,
hich paper in their judgment had
uch a circulation as warranted them
n selecting a medium'for advertising
heir notices. TL.ay, believing THE
VIANNING TIMES, being an old estab
ished paper and naturally had a fixed
irculation, as business men, awarded
he contract accordingly.
The capital stock of a newspaper is
ts circulation; this point which, for
he purposes of investigation seems to
iave been ignored by the committee,
i it did not attempt to ascertain any
hing relating to that point, unless they
-elied on the ex-parte statements of the
irectors interested in the corporation.
e know the committee sought no in
ormation from us, and it is needless to
ay that it takes years of hard work to
~stablish a fixed circulation for a news-*
aper, and no newspaper in thc be
inning of its career can possibly have
he same advertising value as one old
The grand jury exonerates the Coun
,y Commissioners from the complaint
harged against them and they had
iothing whatever to do with, whether
he stockholders of the Manning Pub
ishing Company can give a bond of
' thirty thousand dollars," no mor'e
han if we had gone before them and
oasted that we could give a bond for
;ixty thousand dollars. The question
