The State Supreme Court yesterday
again affrmed the decision of the lower
court in the case of Willie Bethune,
cnvicted several times and sentenced
for the murder of Mr. G. B. Mims. Be
thune will be brought back to Claren
endon to be re-sentenced whenever a
time has been fixed for the purpose.
The last appeal was made on the ground
that the sentence to electrocution was
unco-stitutional because the Act' to
provide such punishment was passed
after the crime was committed. Wlteth
.r there will be another appeal when
Betune is again sentenced remains to
be seen, or it may be that the attornies
for Bethune will carry the case up to
the United States Supreme Court as
was done in the case of Malloy, charg
d with the murder of two little boys
near Bennettsvilie. We doubt if there
has ever been another case in this State

Funeral of Rev. James McDowell
The funeral the of Rev. James Mc
Dowell, D D.. which was held at noon
oday in the Presbyterian church was
tended by a large congregation, com
oed of his friends from four or Sie
ounties, who were members of the
hurches he had served as pastor dur
ng his long miuistryv. During the hour
f service bosiness was suspended, all
he banks and btores being closed as a
ark of respect to his memory, and as
he funeral passed through the streets
rom the church to the cemetery, the
city hail bell was tolled.
The services at the church were
onducted bi Rev. W. J. McKay, as
sisted be Rev. J. P. Marion, the pastor
f the church. Dr. McKay paid to Dr.
McDowell the loving and tender tribute
f a friend who had admired and rev
renced the departed servant of God
for a lifetime and who mourned his
:eath as a personal loss, that was tem
pered only by the knowledge that his
venerable friend had been called to
that higher and better home that his
ong life sanctified to good works for
his fellow men, made his sure and just
rewa d. The services were brief and
simple and in keeping wvith the life and
caracter of the man who had entered
into rest after a well spent and useful
life '~hat was an example and inspira
tion to all who came under the influ
nce of his ministry.-Suimter Item,

His Prayer Was In Unknown Tongue.
3 Editor Manning Times:
The first editorial in your paper of -
this week is an exceedingly adroit ar- M
ticle and is deserving of some notice,
in that said article is in some respects
correct and in other respects it is mis
leading. Now, Mr. Editor, you under
stand. I have prayed for you often, but K
it appears that you positively refuse to
get on the moral side of any public
question and I do not know whether it
is due to the fact that my prayers have Di
gone awry or because you are inher
Personally, I bave never considered In
the question of compulsory education n
as having be.-n an issue in the State
campaign of last summer, but on the
contrary I have always regarded the K
issue at that time as having been one
of a plain choice as between political
morality and political immorality, and Sc
assuming that the vote was an honest
vote, which I do not believe, the result
of last summer's election was a clear
victory for public immorality.
While I may be mistaken, I have al- da
ways regarded Blease as being a plain, H
unadulterated political crook, but I am
satisfied he represents the majority of "
the people of this State, and therefore of
I am forced to the conclusion that theOf
majority of the people of this State love me
wickedness rather than righteousness. h
Furthermore, I am satisfied that Ao
George Rembert, whom I knew at dr
Wofford College, and who is very much hO
of the type of Blease in private and do
public matters. will be a strong candi- th
date for Governor n-xt summer; of
course, I would not vote for George fi
R-mbert for any office, but as I said B
before, since the people of this State
love politically immorality rather than t'
public moralit', George Rembert will
be hard to defeat.
As an evidence of the fact that the gr
people of thi- State love wickedness in a
public affairs, witness the appointment ,
of Samuel Nichols as an Associate ha
Justice of the Supreme Cour ; Nichols
was practically caught with the "goods P
on" in an effort to secure a pardon in
be half of a client at the hands of Blease
and tie set up in defense the fact that
he was drunk and be .umroned his .
father anduncle. both whom ar- hon
oratile m,-n, to prove the fact that he
wa< drunk and they of cou's- d d .o in
very s tisfacuorily; of c.,urse, Nicho:s h
would not tave accept-d the af. resa a
a. powttmeni, if lie had regarded de
cent sentiment in his State with aiyb;
deeree of courtesy, and Brea-e of course
would not have appointed Nickols, if
he had not known that the majority of Su
the people of this State love crime and u
graft as was so well said by the late s
James H. Carlisle, many years ago.
Now, Mr. Editor, in view of the pa
aforesaid facts, which no one will deny.
what are the good people and patriots
of this S ate to do under the circum
stances; under our constitutions, we
have perfect freedom in religious mat
ters and we- canoun for.=e our peop'- t - Zt
r.-ceive u.struction in public morality nit
from the various religious denomina- Po
t ons. but under the public welfare sit
clause of our constitutions and the Cb
police power af the State, we can edu- the
cate the coming generation and pros- sot
pective voters through our public of
schools, in matters pertaining to science (
history and personal and public moral- gal
Therefore, Mr. Editor, I am satisfied bu
we should have compulsory medical lac
inspection and compulsory education, ens
provided the laws -along these lines th
can be shaped to meet actual conditions. a :
For instance, I agree with Blease, a
that it is absolutely indecent to compel Pr
under the public welfare clause, the set
young girls of this State, to be inspect- wa
ed and examined by the ordinary male He
physician, and if we musthave medical aut
inspection, I think the laws should pro- on
vide for the inspection of the girls by nis
women physicians; I realize this is a (
delicate subject, but I am reliably in- ext
formed that several years ago, there Ba
lived in Union county, this State, a very Ba
prominent male physician, who made a of
specialty of diseases of women, that ate
said physician kept a diary of all of his ape
cases, and when he died, his adminis- bat
trator came into possession of the diary Cli
and filed the record with the Probate pre
Court of Union county, the result being me
that the record became public proper- edt
ty, and It is said the pubication of the oui
recora' in question created quite a deal I
of dissatisfaction among the married B.
people and many of the noble husbands ble
of Union county were well-nigh per- tru
suaded to depart instantIt for China, of
Of course, all the crooks are nut In an<
the medical profession, but you will ce;
sometime find crooks in the legal pro
fession; -for instance, during the last
term of court in this county, an action
was on trial, involvIng the rape of an
esate and the robbery of two highly 'j
respected old people, late of Summer- Sot
ton, and one of the witnesses in the sta
action, who had committed perjury daj
more than once during tne trial, was ing
asked who persuaded her to commit art
this unprecedented perjury, and she suc
deposed that one of the attorneys in nuli
the case was an active accessory to the eve
perjury and this was not denied. get
However. I think there should be a cal
distinction in the proposed laws with ruo
respect to medical inspection and com- de.i
pulsory education; for Instance, I am a r
satiefied medical Inspection should be "V
universal. incluoing the negro race, bei
for the ri-ason that many of the com- pei
mon ills and diseases are contagious; aut
on the contrary, I am abs.olutely op Th
ps.d to compulsory education for the hit
ner.', for the simple reason that the da:
negro hats no polit'ical duties to per- cat
form anid never will have any, so long mi'
as the white people of this State are of 1
mind ful of their obligation to civiliza- lty
tion, and furthermore, the education 1
of the negr" simply means the ruina- its
tion of good cooks and good hoe-hands; Tu
since the courts do not u.-ually man- the
amus administrative boards, in whom Th
there is vested a sound discretion, the liv,
legislature of South Larolina, catt read- nig
ily prepare and enact a law, to meet be
tbe actual conditions along the lines Ma
There are of course other questions sel:
besides compulsory education, and one prt
issue next summer, will be the nomina- of
tin of a United States Senator; I can Mi
not understand why thbe good people of an<
this State will ignore this question and Ma
leave the choice as between Blease and the
E.ID. Smith; personally, I would not 4th
vote for either of these men for any
office and I know hundreds of voters
who hold the same view as I do with
respect to the situation: it appears
strange and is possibly an evidence of
political immorality that the people of an
this State are willing to leave the Th
aforesaid federal office open to the
aforesaid men, in which event, the dis
nomination would Inevitably result in we
the election of a notorious political

which occurred in Manning several at
