ML.O C. Scarborough was in town
yesterday, after a tour of the upper part
of the State. and he is very cheerful over
his prospects for election to the office of
railroad commissioner. There is no
doubt that Mr. Scarborh is makt
ing friends wherever he goes, and it is
our judgment that when the votes are
counted he will be among the highest.
Our young friend, M'.r. J. McSwain
Woods, who is practicing, law in At

with one of the leading law firms in
the Gate city. The firm is Evins &
Spence, and they have offices in the
Empire building. The Erins of the firm
is originally from thbis Stte and he is
now one of Atlanta's most prominent
citizens. We congratulate Woods on
making this splendid connection.
Died at his home in Jordan on last
Saturday, Mr. Charlton Bradley, aged

small children. The funeral wook place
at Jordan Sunday morning in the ceme

H. Evereitte of the Jordan Methodist
.church conducted the services. There
was a large concourse of friends from
Manning, Mayesville and other place
at the funeral. The news of Mr. Brad

here who had not heard of his illness.
.and the sincere sympathy of this people
go out to the grief stricken family.
The County Democratic Executive
Committee met in the court house last
Monday, the attendance was not full but
there was a quorum present. The work
done by the committee was irranging
dates for the county campaign meetings,
and the assessments of the candidates.
Is will be seen that the committee is in
keening with everything else. and have
gone up in the price for candidates.
This was necessary because there are
fewer otfices to il,. and the probability
there will be fewer candidates, and it is
ecessary to have the money to defray
the expenses. such as paying the manag
ers of election. the assessment to the
State co-omittee. and the incidental ex
penses that the chairman is compelled.
to meet,. incident to a primary election.

When we went to press ia.st ieek the!
court was engaged in the hearing of the
case of Willie Bethune. the convicted!
murdered of Mr. G. B. .lims. The ques
tion for determination was, is the pri,-I
oner insane? The jury answered in the
negative. Willie Bethune is sane. and
must suffer the ronsequences of hs das
The grand jury rendered the follow
ing additional true bills for violating the
liquor laws: James Spann. Chamberlain
Miller. Charlie Cantey. William Green,
James Pempey. Ransom Rich and Jake
Flood. Spann pleaded guilty, and was
sentenced to pay a fine of $:.O0 or serve
on the gang 6 months.
Miller. after his attorney. W. C
Davis, Esq., put in the plea of former
jeopardy, in that he had been tried in
the municipal court. and it was over
ruled by the Judge, he entered the plea
of guilty. and Millcr was sentenced to
pay a fine of $500, $200 to be paid. and
$300 held in abeyance during good be
havior, which we take to mean that if
Miller is ever again convicted for sell
ing liquor he must pay the $300.
Charlie Cantey also put in a plea of
guilty, and was given a line of $200
James Pompey went to trial. A. Levi,
F.sq., was his attorney. Pompey. while
on the stand. practically admitted that
he sold the detective whiskey, and was
found guilty. The Judge gave him a
fine of I-00 or one year on the gang.
The grand jury found No Bill against
Walter Jones, charged with selling liq
The cases against Ransom Rich and
Jake Flood charged with selling liquor,
were Nol Prossed. Attorney Davis press
ed for trial, but because the Solicitor
found that his main detective witness
was not here. he nol prossed the cases,
but he can if he is so disposed give them
out again to the grand jury at anather
term of court, in the meanwhile the ac
cused are free.
The liquorcase against William Green
Jerry Parnel,. ,-n:rged with assault
and battery with intent to kill. and
carrying concealed weapon. found
guily-two years on chaingang.
The case of Bennie Miller, charged
with murder, was continued.
Peter Tindal. charged with assault
and battery of a high and aggravated
nature. was acquitted.
The rest of the criminal cases were
continued. Some were not even it-en
out to the grand jury.
Judge Memminger opened up the
Common Pleas Court, and the follow
ing verdicts were rendered:
J. M. Montgomery vs The Florida
Home Insurance Company. Verdict for
Montrgomery, $136 93.
Miss Annie Thames vs The North
western Railroad. Verdict for Miss
The jury in the matter of Willie Be
thune rendered a verdict to the effect
that Bethune is sane, and Judge Mem
minger sentenced him to be hanged on
July 1st.. which is the first Friday in
next month. Bethune was represented
by A. A. Manning Esq.. of Sumter. who
did all he knew how, to save the negro
from the ;;allows. This was a most ua
usual case, Bethune murdered a white
man, Mr. G. B. Mims, who was of one of
Clarendon's best families, and after a
jury heard the case, and found a verdict
of guilty, the lawyer for the cnvicted
murderer appealed from the death sen
tence, carried the case to the supreme
court. where the sentenm was confirm
ed, then as a further deiay. the lawyer
attempted to save Bethune by setting
up the plea of inanity, brought to the
court Dr. Frank Butler, the penitentiary
physician, who swore that in his opinion
Bethune was a crazy man: the Soliciter
put up Dr. W. M. Brockinton of this
place, and he gave it as his opinion from
the little chance he had of observing
Bethune, that he was not insane. The
jury took his view, and promptly ren
dered a verdict accordingly. So unless
the Governor interferes, and it is not
likely that he will, Willie Bethune will
pay t~he death penalty on July 1st., for
the murder of Mr. G. B. Mims This
case has cost the county considerable.!
The accused was kept for safe keeping1
in the State penitentiary, was carried t
and from several times, all of which
The jury in the case of J. M. Ray
charged with assault and battery with
intent to kill, had a hard time of it.
The case was solely for the jury to de
termine whether or not Ray was justified
in shooting a negro that had given him
insolence: this i~s where the jury struck
a snag, and it was hung for about :26
hours, and even then they d'd not agree.
and a mistrial had to) be ordered. Ray1
then entered a plea of guilty of assaul
and battery of a high and aggravated
nature, and the judge imposed a tine of
$50. The jury men in this case were
greatly incensed at the treatment they
received from the judge, and they were
free in their expressions when in con
versation. '1 hey say they not only were
greatly inconvenienced, but that they
actually suffered from lack of food. and
from those things that nature demand-I
ed. The water works of the room they
were placed in did not work, one of the
members was sick, and under instruc
tios from the judge the sheriff was not
allowed to let the jurors leave the room,
they had not a mouthful to eat from
breakfast until seven o'clock in the
evening, and nothing more until nearly
noon the next day. They feel that :bey
were treated r'ere like prisoners than
jurymen just bc~anse the judge had the
power and was using that power to
force a verdict. The jury found after
deliberating a few hours, it was imposs
ible for them to come to an agreement.
and they several times indicated this to
the judge, but he seeme.' determined
to force a verdict, which proved to be
unavailing. Had Judge Memminger
heard the expressions from the jury
men as we did he would in the future
have more consideration for men who
are forced to serve upon the juries in
the courts where he is presiding. It
has always been our understanding that
courts were for the purpose of dispen
sing justice, and justice cannot be had
where the juries are forced against
their judgments to render a verdict.
To coerce a jury by punishing it un
il! it makes a decision is not just, and
we think the legislature should give a
matter of this kind consideration. ana
limit a judge's power so he must see
than jurors are not pnnished, and treat
ed as humanity demands.

Quite a party went from ManniZ LU.t
Sunday to attend the f -.vman's move
-nent services at New Zion and l'ine
Grove. The party went in automobiles:
thev were Capt. W. C. Davis and Charl
ton'Dulant. Esq.. of the Manning Bar.
who are conductinZ Laymen service- at
various ehurches: Mr. Davis for tie
Presbyterians, and Mr. Dula-nt for the
Methodists. The rest of the party were
Messrs. Jos. L. and C. W. Wells. and
Mr. A. P. Burgess these gentlemen
went to assis. Messrs. Davis and Dul' ant
with the singing. and Messrs. F. L
Wolfe and Herman Huzgins to attend
the services. On account of the incem
e:icv of the weather the attendance at
New Zion was not as larg-e as wa., ex
pected, but at l'ine Grove they had a
ine audience. The Layman's movement
is an active force in this county. and no
doubt the eloquent pleas for missions
will do much to arou:;e the people to
contribute liberally. The cause in this
countv is well represent-ed by the two
entlemen from the Manning Bar. who
have much experience in the art of:
Pieading: when they go out n the in
terest of the uplift of a benighted peo
ple in foreign lands. their training as
peakers should serve them well, and
wil. no doubt bring to the cause they
argue for, many dollars from the people.
Eii:or The Mannins Tumes:
A part of the daily program in this
community for the past week has been.
dIt-voted to rain. Quite substantial
showers have fallen every day during
that time, and sone of them were very
heavy. The farmners are not aione in
raising their voices in complaint, but
our whole community is beginning to
material damage should it continue
much longer. Many a field of oats
can be seen shocked and waiting to
be dried before it can be housed. It
is very probable that such oats w-vill
be badly damaged if not ruined. Prac
tically no work has been done for a
week in the cotton fields, and for once
the planters of this section have not
been able to keep the grass out.
Work which had been commenced
on the eastern portion of our Main
street has been discontinued on ac
:ount of unfavorable weather. The
town is co-operating with the force
sent out by the county, and thereby i
it is hoped that a much improved road!
=an be had at that entrance to the
town. The plan, is to clay the street, I
beginning at Taw-Caw Branch and
eontinuing to the part of the street
where former claying was done. This
will eliminate the only real and ger
ine -sand-bed" within the townulim- I
The rains have likewise delayed the
work on the new Methodist church
building. The furnace pit in whi-h .
ad been done considerable fourda
.ion work, has been supplied with a
oot nr more of water, which the con
tinued rain prevented from being en
irely carried off.
The Episcopal church which is be
ing repaired to the extent of re-plas
tering and re-painting will soon be in
readiness for the continuance of ser
ices. It is very gratifying to the
Episcopal congregation of this place
to note the following taken from the,
onthly publication of that church:
Rev. Jno. Kershaw, Jr., has resumed
eharge of his former parish of St.
Matthias, Summerton, and expects to
move there in the fall and give his 1
whole time to that fied. It gives me
great pleasure to be able to state that
his healtti is greatly improved during t
the past year and his physician -as
sures him that with care and an out
door life he will soon be entirely re
During the summer months this I
rhurch wIll be in charge of Mr. John 1
Hanekel Taylor of Charleston, the I
rector being'absent. Mr. Taylor will I
eonduoct services on the first and third
Sundays in each :nonth, beginning
with Sunday, June 19. at 11 a m. Mr.
Taylor is entering his senior year at
the Theological Seminary at Alexan- K
ria, Va. Being a young man of ster
ling qualities, much pleasure and
profit is expected as a result of hisi
work among us.
