The Ice Deliverv War Advanced.
The ease against W. M. James. the
butcher, charged by Messrs. W. E.
Jenkinson and G. L. Dickson and W.
G. King with violating Section 500 of
the general statutes, which forbids
laboring on Sunday except in cases of
necessity and charity. caine on to be
heard before Magistratc Youmans last
Wednesday afternoon. J. H. Lesesne.
Esq., represented the prosecution, and
S. Oliver O'Bryan. Esq. the defence.
The defendant tid not require a jury.
thus leaving it to the court to decide!
upon the law and the facts. In the
opening of the case Mr. O'Bryau punc
tured the prosecution's drag net, by
obtaining from the court a decision
that all of the deliveries of ice and beef
on a particular Sunday was one offense
and not as the prosecution contended
divers offenses, and by this knocked
to pieces the labor of those who sweat
ed on a Sunday morning following
James' ice delivery wagon over town.
The defense admitted the delivery ofi
both ice and beef, but contended. and
backed its contention by numerous de
cisions in a number of States, that the
deliverv of such articles came under
the head of "work of necessity'" and
further. the defendant. James testified
that he was delivering his ice and beef
througb a permit of the town council
which permits, during certain months,
the delivery of ice and beef on Sunday
morning up to 9 o'clock, and that when
he was ordered by Messrs. Jenkinson
and Dickson to stop, he went to the
men who were clothed with legal
authority for advice, and they told
him to continue his deliveries.
The prosecution's witnesses, notwith
standing the admission on the part of
the defense that it delivered ice and
beef as alleged, went on and proved
that James.did deliver, and therefore
in the opinion of witness Jenkinson he
"labored on our Sabbath day." This
witness also gave it as his opinion, ice
was not a necessity, neither was beef,
people could eat canned goods,
and he was allowed to argue during
the recital of his testimony that ice
and beef was a luxury. Mr. Jenkinson
also gave it as his opinion that the
ice and beef delivered on a Sunday was
sold on that day. as in his opinion
again, the delivery consumated the
Mr. Joseph Sprott also gave his opin
ion that it was not necessary to deliver
ice and beef on Sunday.
Mr. Louis Appelt testified for the de
fense that the delivery of ice and beef
was a work of necessity and he explain
ed that by necessity he meant, not an
absolute necessity, but such a necessity
which if deprived of, would cause great
inconvenience to those who were regu
lar users of these things, and too, beef
taken from the refrigerators of our
markets would spoil in short order un
less kent on ice, and liable to cause
sickness, and such being the case. and
so many people not provided with re
frigerators, it was a necessity to have
the ice and tresh meats delivered on
Sunday morning or be deprived of the
use of eitber.
Mr. J. H. Rigby also testified to the
W. M. James, the defendant, swore
that it had been his custom to deliver
ice and beef on Sunday morning ever
since he has been in business, and al
ways did so with the permission of the
town council, that it was not his pur
pose to defy law, but his patrons de
manded their meats and ice delivered
to them on Sunday morning, and he
did so without any extra compensation.
Since he was notified to stop this de- ]
livery he has made it a rule to take up
the ice tickets when the order was
made on Saturday. He did not sell
aything on Sunday, but the beef and
ice he delivered was sold the day be
fore, and as an accommodation he al
lows it to remain in cold storage to
keep fresh and fit for use, knowing1
that when meats are taken Out of cold
storage they would spoil very quick.
Mr. O'Bryan, in his argument for
the defendant, cited a number of cases
from the law books, going to show that.
,he delivery of such articles have been
eld as "work of necessity."
Mr. Lesesne made no attempt to cite
ny court decisions to back up the con
ention of the prosecution, but he
rgued from the stand point, "Remem
ber the Sabbath," etc. This portion of
his argument the prosecution as well 1
s the defense could give more heed
to, but in bhis particular case, the la w
f the land governs, and it is for the
ourts to construe the meaning of
'work of necessity" as contemplated in
Magistrate Youmans, at the conclu
sion of the arguments. announced lie
ould rule that the delivery of ice and
>eef is not.a work of necessity and
herefore would find the 'defendant
guilty. The panishment is a line of one
dollar, with no imprisonment. Mr.
)'Bryan gave notice of appeal, and the
mposition of the fine was suspended.
The object of appealing the case is.
o get a decision from the court, the J1
defense believing that the law does not
ontemplte running this government
n the lines laid down by the prosecu
tion, nor does it believe the law is in
tended to operate against one class of
citizens in favor of another. If the law
of the land means to stop all manner
of labor on Sunday, those seeking to
stop the delivery of ice and beef which
does no harm, but gives comfort to1
those who cannot afford the conven- I
iences of the wealthy. can tind grav-er
offenses to correct, offenders who willi
probably turn their patronage else
here if meddled with; anyway, there
is a lot of opportunity for moral moni- I
tors to go into the moat and beam
picking business. There is no disposi
tion to break law, and when Magis
trate Youmans rendered his decision
i favor of the State, defendant, upon
the advice of those interested in his<
case, posted a notice on his door that
he would stop the delivery on Sunday
pending the appeal. As a result there
was e.o deliveries made last Sunday.
The appeal will be heard by His
Honor Judge George E. Prince, who
will preside here at the next term of
court, and if he overrules the Magis
trate, as we confidently believe he will,
then there will be'no more interference
in the Sunday deliveries of necessities
whether it suits all of the markets to
deliver or not.

THE MANNING HARDWARE CO.
We are closing the tenth year, and
nring upon the eleventh of our busi
ness life in the Town of Manning, we
feel somewhat proud of the material
progress of our town and of our aid in
making it a commercial center. Ten
yaars ago there was not an exclusive
ine of goods handled here with the
possible exception of dregs, but within
tht time nearly all the new business
has been single lines. we now have ex
lusive grocery stores, exclusive dry
oods stores, exclusive hard ware stores,
the old general line store still continues
to do a thiriving business, while the ex
lusive lines have brought large addi
tional cash trade, formerly but light
ash trade was done during the sum
e months. The old-timer used to
oast that he could save his expenses
mt of purchases for cash to the amount
,ififty dollars by going to the city
Char'lstni) to trade and have a little
ioney left to see the sight with. This
lad fellow returned several years ago
wi~h his mnoney' in his pocket minus the
ightseeing amount. which he declared
oild have been a pity to bring
>ack, saying that he could save enough
it oe-tradinlg to take a pleasant trip)
In our line the years have improved
mr facilities for eatering to the trade
ost wonderfully, we have added nu
erous lines to our stock, and our bet
er knowledge and understanding ac
iired by the years of experience of
what the trade demands, enables us to
>:; such goods as are wanted and to
place them in the hands of our custo
nrs at the lowest possible prices.
We are going to make 1907, a record
breaker in our business. WVe want every
body who comes to outr town to call
t our place of business if they want
oods in our line we are gomng to make
t to their interest to trade with us. if
%y do not want any thiug we shall be
'ld to have them call that we may get
>tter acquainted, and we will weleome
hem and give them any information
tt our command.
We are particularly anxious to show
mr goods and to be afforded an oppor
u..ity to demonstrate just what we can
lo.'Our store is not tilled with high
>iced goods only we have all classes
.nd can sell a hatchet for tifteen cents
is well as one for a dollar.
Each year we try and bring our stock
oo a higher degree of perfection and
rrom a small line of shelf hardware to
>gin with we have added consecutive
Ly, ill Supplies, Carriage and Buggy
eepair material, Paints, Varnishes,
subicating Oil, and more recently a
ppndid line of agricultuiral imple
nennts, such as double team Plows,
Mowers and Hlay Presses.
We carry a large stock of A\merican
Eield Fencing, it is our aim to place
before our customers everything usu
ally kept in upi t.o date establishments
>f this kind, and we want every one to
bear in mind thct our facilities for buy
ing stock is second to none and that
>u best efforts will always be made to
satisfy our patrons.

are the principle inducements the Merchants and
Tobacco Men are holding out to the farmers to
bring their tobacco to this maiket. There is no
market in South Carolina where the warehouse
men are doing more to get the best and highest
prices for tobacco than this market, and there is no
market where you can buy goods cheaper than
here in Manning. No matter what you want, you
can buy it very close on this mar ket, from a paper
I~fl of pins to a cane mill, you can get it cheap, and
when it comes to Dry Goods, Shoes and Clothing,
I W. E. JENINSON
stands at the head of the list. It is true, on account
of high prices of cotton, some lines of goods are
much higher, but still you can buy them here
much cheaper than you can at other towns. It cost
more in other towns than it does here, our expenses
are worked down here to the lowest possible notch,
our taxes are less and the living expenses here in
rents are less, everything figured down to a mini
mum, hence it follows that goods can be sold here
cheape r than most of the towns in this section, and
we tell you that goods are sold here cheaper than
elsewhere, and fellow-farmers, a visit to the Man
