We desire to have a live correspond

that town demands publicity, and i
should not be without a corresponden

therefore it is of the utmost importano
that it should keep before the people il

Can y's Antipathy to Sumter Lawyers.
I have noted with peasure the desire
tin the part of the friends of 1.. V..
lemmivnger to have the leziklature of
South (aroliua promote him to the
tion, of Mociate Justice of the Su
prem-- 'ourt of the State and I wish to
:hank t"e editor of Tiu M A.,-ING
Tims for havin~g assisted in that direc
0 1 am taking the liberty of stating
, through your paper why I think Mr.
t .emmiger ,hou d have been elect-d
to the Supreme Court. as follows, to-wit.
1 In this day and generation, the
lawyer wb- knows nothing more than
the'written Constitution. the Statutes
s and decisions of his State is a very poor
'awver indeed. especially when viewed
in tbe light of a candidate for a position
a aa member of the Appellate Court of
any particular jurisdiction.
s f:!'. Mr. Memminger through training
. and heritage is a man of wide learning
- ou.ide and beyond the limited sphere
of the legal profession, and is therefore
fully competent to interpret the law in
a the light and in harmony with modern
I conditions and civilization.
ft is needless fcr me to refer to the
r necessity for the reversal of certain de
cisions of the Supreme Court of South
a Carolina. but for the purpose of this
article. ! should like to refer to the case
- of Stu:'giss vs. A tlastic Coast Line R. R.
I Co. 50 S. C. 201. wherein the Supreme
Court declared unconstitutional the Act
lof 1905. which provides in substance
) that no contract of employment, insur
ance, relief. benetit or indemnity froin
injury or death entered into, by or in
behalf of any railroad employee. -;hall
constitute any bar or defense to any
. action brought to recover damages for
. personal injuries to or acath of such
, employee; in this case R. 0. Purdy pre
sided as Circuit Judge nod .is opinion
was attirmed by an equally divided Su
preme Court: before going on the Bench
R. 0. Purdy was a local attorney for the
,aid Atlantic Coast Line Railway, and
the opinion of Judge Pu-dy in the case
in question was prepared by Messrs.
Wilcox & '$lcox of Florence. general
counsel for the said Atlantic Coast Line
Railroad. The Supreme Court in this
case has simply afirmed the well pre
pared opinion of the attorneys for the
Atlantic Coast Line Railroad: is iti
therefore any cause for wonder, ',%t I
- the decision in question affirms the leg al
7 presumption in favor of the railroads as
against the railroad employees.
The Supreme Court in the aforesaid
opinion declares that the statute under
consideration was enacted for the pur
pose of preventing railroad corporations
and other parties therein mentioned.
from inaugurating schemes, the ulti
mate aim and practical effect of which
are to enable a railroad company to
bring sucb influence to bear upon its
employees as will force them to sur
render their claims for damages when
they have sustained injury through the
negligence of tne company, and forth
with proceeds to declare unconstitu
tional the Act which was enacted for
the sole purpose of permitting a remedy
for the very evils which the Supreme
I need not refer to the fact,Mr. Editor,
that decisions similar to and involving
the satme principles as Sturgiss vs. At
lantic Coast Line, has caused President
Roosevelt to allege that Baldwin of
- Connecticut and the United States Su
preme Court had become fossilized. and
I do not assert that the Supreme Court
of South Carolina has become fossilized,
but I do say that the election of R. W.
Memminger to the Supreme Court would
have added stability and enlightenment
to the legal lore of South Carolina as
judicially declared, and it is far better
for the people of this State that the
legislature has adjourned without add
ing a fifth Justice to the Supreme Court,
rather than to have elected to so im
portant a position the chronic and per
petuiai judicial candidate from Sumter,
or else some railway attorney.

News Gathered at Clemson College.
Extor The Manning Times:
The entire student body of Clem
son College was very much saddened
on last Sunday night week by the
death of one of its members. Cadet
William R. Chavis. of Bennettsville,
S. C. Cadet Chavis had been criti
cally ill for some time, having had a
severe case of measles, followed by
neumonia. He had only been at
lemson sor a short time, having en
tered the preparatory class last Sept
mber. On account of the death of
adet Charis the regular work for
he preceeding day was done away
with by order of Acting President
Riggs. A committee of six cadets
from Cadet Chavis' county, includ
ng the captain company. were ap
pointed to accompany his remains
ome. The entire corps and faculty
t Clemson feels vary deeply for his
ereaved parents and friends.
Clemson College was very fortu
ate some time ago in having Creast
re and great Italian band stop by
n their way to Greenville and give
n evening matinee. The entire en
ertainment was very much enjoyed.!
eldom does one have an oppor
unity of hearing such fine music.
During the past week all the boys~
were gladdened by the falling ofa
ittle snow. To their great disap
pointment, however, it only lasted
for a short while. Had it continued~
nd had the sno N not melted there
would have been quite a good deal
f skating during the ensuring days.
Captain Stokes, the commandant'
f cadets up here, has introduced!
recently a new feature into the mi I
itary department of the college lIe
as arranged so that one of the three
respective batallions shall have tar
et practice once a week. This tar
et practice consists of shooting a
wenty-two calibre rifles at a bulls
eye th'at is placed fifty feet away. At
every practice each cadet is allowed
ive rounds. This practice, as can
readily be seen, is very beneficial to
the boys, as it enables them to see
the real side of military life. A prize
as been recently promised to the
ompany thut wins out in a shooting~
contest which is to be held on the
l~th of this month. The contestants:
or the prize consist of four of the
best shots from each company. The
ompany that wins first prize will be
given five dollars to be divided
equally between the four men that
won it~ There is also a prize of one
dollar to be given the best individual
shot from the contestants of all the
ompanies. This off'ering of prizes to
the best shot will encourage the
cadets still more along the line of
During the first three days of the
