It. is said that Eugene Hogan. the
young man who left the Sumter court
without permission, was in M1anning
Saturday night, went to the telephone
ottice and inquired if he could get a
message through to Sumter. He was
drenching wet, and had the appearance
of a man that was being pursued. The
young lady at the office did not know
him, nor anything about his escape
from justice, but from her description.
those who know Hogan are very sure it
was him. When he left the telephone
office, he disappeared in the night, and
no one knows which way he went.

Sumerton, he alone placed hundreds

Colclough Stukes, colored, the mur
derer of Captain David Wells was re
sentenced by Judge Gary at Sumter
last Saturday. His execution takes
place the third Friday in May. When
Stukes was convicted his lawyer- ap
pealed to the supreme court, but later
bandoned the appeal. When the case
vas called in the supreme court J. J.
antey attorney for Stukes failed to aip
pear and he was telegraphed for. hut
he did not go. The supreme court sus
tained the lower court, and it became
Judge Gary's duty to resentence the
prisoner. In repl'y to the formial qjues
tion if he had anything to say why sen
tence should not be pronounced. Stukes
made a statement in which he char-ged
his attorney with deserting the case.
Solicitor'Wilson felt called upon to
make a statement which was as follows:
"Your Honor, I would like to make
a statement. There have been so many
letters written that I dont know how
matters stand. When the caise came
up in the Supreme Court. I don't know
when I have been in such an embar
rassing position. I was there and Mr.
Canter didnt appear., and there a party
hd been convicted of murder and his
counsel didnt appear. -Well. I- didn't
know what to do-didn't kniow what the
excuse was, and I got' up in the Su
pree Court and made a statement and

ceived a reply that he couldn t -come

got up and stated to the Supreme Cout.
tha- there I was, had been sohecitor- for
so many years. and I didn't know when
I had been in so embarrassing a posi
tion, and Col. Lee made an arg-ument.
and the Supreme Court p~assed an order
allowing so many days-I forget the
number-for MIr. Cantey to file his bief
or whatever he was going to do.
Cotton Association---A Powerful Address.
Notwithstanding the- short notice.
and-also the number of impatienyt, auf
kicers by nature, the cytton 'aer
tin of Claredon had a sigeedid mee
ug in MIanning last Saturdv. Hion.
E. D. Smith the State p2-nt. and
National organ izer was p. . ft, and of
course he was the featur-e the pro
ceedings. The court house was pack
ed, andl all were intent to hear fr-om
this distinguished man who has done so
much for the farmers of. the South,
what the future will big forth. In
order to hear this man, several of the
business houses close~d. all were cx
nected to shut up. but it being Satur
day they did not feel justified in mak
ing the sacr-ifice, but we doubt very
much if those who did close lust any
trade by it, because, everybody, white
and colored went to the meeting, and
got well paid for going.
M r. Smith had just rect urne-d fr-om at
extensive trip which shows on him. the
man is over-worked and goeeds rest.
He looked tired and thin, and has beer
told that he must go to thle hospital foi
rpesidnt Hodgee in introducing the
speaiker, -made a few preliminary re
marks, and when he announced the
name 'of Smith. the whole audience
made such a welcoming demonstration
that it was several minutes before Mr.
Smith could proceed. The speech was
ch3racteristic of the man, eloquent,
foreeful. logical and full of wholesome
instruction and earnestuess. What
he did for the class who are going
about trying to disparage the associa
tion was a plenty. His argument that
cotton is a world necessity without a
competitor. and that the South has a
monopoly of the staple was exceedingly
strong and convincing. He compared
it to flax. silk.wool and the other weav
ing flibres, and claims that cotton has
driven these out of competition.
That by a determined organiza
tion, the past has already demonstrated
what can be done to develop the South
in every material way. It takes but
a small raise in the price to realize a
vast amount of money. He said that a
raise of one cent a pound will ut
$000,00) into South Carolina alone, not
into the pockets of a few, but each and
every one gets his prorata share He
contends that the association has only
just, begun its work, what has been
done in the past although it accom
plished so much, was but the skirmish
ing for the great battle to come. Oi
Lranization and capitalization for the
control of our markets is the aim, and
through the standard warehouse system
this will be accomplished. The speaker
laid much stress on the market, con
trol feature of the association. He said
that he proposes to put the organiza-l
tion into a huge corporation with a
large capital, and have a buyer at each
cotton market in the South. A mini
mum price will be fixed by the associ
ation, and the man who is forced to
sell before that price is reached will
sell to the association's buyer and he
will turn the key upon it in a ware
house. If it becomes necessary money
will be borrowed upon stored cottou,
and the Bears will be driven out of
the market. He cautioned his hearers
against being fooled by Price and his
bullish movements. He made a great
hit when in a moment of digression he
told his hearers that they spent six
months buying grass, and the other six
months killing it. and "it is a ruinous
mistake" said he
The entire address was replete with
the soundest of advice, well and mag
niticiently put., and although he spoke
for one hour and twenty minutes the
audience gave him the closest atten
tion, and regretted when he stopped
speaking. Mr Smith is confident that
before the new crop of cotton comes in
the price will be over 15 cents, and
gave -.ery strong reasons for his bclief.
Captain A. L. Lesesne of Silver made
a motion which was unanimously adopt
ed that the ginners of Clarendon meet
with the executive committee the first
Monday in June to consider the matter
of collecting the ten cents per bale as
sessment. The meeting iras harmonious,
and merchant, banker, lawyer, and
farmer all were greatly encouraged by
A Charity Hospital.
At the conclusion of a most excellent
sermon last Sunday morning, Rev. A.
N. Brunson announced that a lady in
formed him of a suggestion made by a
gentleman of this town, who is not a
member of any church, that a charity
hospital be brilt here, and that he
would contribute 8500 for the cause.
The name of the man was not given.
but the minister stressed the fact that
the man is not a member of a church.
The proposition is a good one and we
hope it will be acted upon. It is all
right to profess religion, but it is al
together another matter to demonstrate
faith by works. The mac whose heart.
goes out to the suff'ering, and who de
sires to provide the means to succor
them, whether he professes religion or
not, or whether he belongs to achurch,
has a religion that the multitude should
rave: sub a re.ligion is more pleasing
in the sight of God. than a hundred
actionless professions. "Love thy
eghbor'' is one of the fundamental
;ricples of all religions, even the
heathen, at the mothers breast is
taught the doctrine, and vet it is a mat
ter of every day notoriesy that or fel
low beings ao permittad to suffer
without a succoring hand to alleviate
their pain. ~Men, women and children
within ear-call are permitted to die for
want of proper medical attention, and
this too, in a civilizedl, cultured, com
munity, under the shadows of churches.
A man who is not a member of any
church comes forward and. proposes for
this town to provide the means where
the poor may get the benefits of skill
ful attention, and with his proposition
he offers to give a nice sum. Are
there any others to come forwardYes,
we know of another who will give a lot
to build ahe hospital on. The lot con
tains one half acre about one block
from the court house square. We en
dose the proposition heartily and we
hope the good ladies will go to work,
form a hopital organization and not
stop until they have raised a sufficient
sum to erect ~and equip the building
and then we also hope our town au
thorities will look after its maintain
ance. If there is any way that we can
aid the enterprise wve hold ourself
ready for orders.
