JAP SAYS AMERICAN
On Naval Holiday Plan-Declares U.
S. and Great Britain Must Agree
Before Japan Can Take Part.
Tokio, Jan. 18.-(By the Associated
Press.) -American proposals that Jap
an, Great Britain and the United
States "take a naval haliday" is elo
quent proof that despite the fabulous
riches of America she wishes to cur
tail national expenditures, and there
. fore the proposals are intended more
to help America than to contribute to
ithe peace of the world, said Merquis
Shigenoby Okuma, former Japanese
premier, in an interview here today.
He asserted America should first con
suit Great Britain relative to the sug
gested suspension nf the naval pro
"Only when an American-British
agreement has been . reached," he
added, "can Japan be in a position
to consider this proposition. Japan's
naval program is fixed at th2 mini
mum necessary for naclonal defense.
Undue Importance, is Charged
Charges that it appears the Amcri
can Government is giving the incident
arising out of the death of Nav-il
Lieut. Langdon at Vladivostok undue
importance are made by the Kokumin,
If, as believed, the newspaper con
tinues, "America goes as far as to
bring up Japan's basic policy in Si
beria, including the question of the
avacuation of that country by Jap
anese troops, it is likely fresh cause
for discussion has arisen between the
two governments. Moreover, such a
question would cause a dispute be
tween the Japanese foreign oflice and
military authorities here.
Surprise at what it terms the "tim
idity of the government," is expressed
by the Ilochi Shimum, which adds:
Says Sentry not to Blame
"The government is going every
thing to apologize to America, when,
according to information( reaching
Jap4n, no fault was found in the ac
tions of the sentry who shot Lieut.
Langdon. Apparently the government
has two stories-one for American
/consumption, and the othor for the
The Yamato Shimbun argues the
sentry was merely performing his
duty, and asserts there is no reason
for the death of an officer in a for
eign country being regarded as a se
rious international incident.
Press advices from Vladivostok de
clare Lieut. Langdon walked to the
cruiser Albany, saluted the gangway
guar( and collapsed before making
any statement. Confirmation that the
lieutenant's Russian wife shot and
killed herself the day following the
death of her husband has been re
ceived in dispatches to newspapers
CASE OF CARLOS CORBETT
Orangeburg, Jan, 18.--The case of
tie State against Carlos Corbett was
again called this morning by Solicitor
Hlydrick. It is sought now to place
Corbett on trial for the killing of
Julian Cooper. At the conclusion of
the arguments Judge Shipp announc
ed that he would think over the case
and annonnce his decision on tormor
It will be remembered that Carlos
Corhett was arqditted of killing Bry
an Salley at the last September term
of rosrt. The case stIl lattracts a
great deal -of attention and large
crowds were present in the courtroom
when the case was called.
When t he solicitor called the defend
ant to the (lock he, through his coun
sel, interposed a carefully prepare~d
plea o'f former adljudication or acquit
tal and declared that he had already
been ecquitted of the offense charge,
and as there was but one offense in
all committed and that he ('ould( not
be tried the second time. The Stato
interposed a (demurrer in wvriting tb
this plea to the effect that the plea
(lid not state racts sufficient to sus
tain the plea.
Thereupon argument was com mencedl
by counsel. Ex-Governor Bllease Wil
11am C. Wolfe and Mendel L. Emith
submiitted the opening argument for
the defense, taking the position that
there was but one offense, as the
transaction involved one purpose and
that this had been passedl upon by the
He was followed by 'T. M. Raysor,
Col. Adam TI. Moss and Solicitor IHyd
rick, who contended that the plea
could not be susti~inedl because there
was more than one offense and that
the killing of each man constituted(
a separate offense.*
Col. Adam HI. Moss then sub~mittedl a
further argument for the State, con
tending that the plea could not be
sustained because dlifferent shots
killed the men and that ther3 couldl
have been a different intent.

MR. CANTY'S IDEAS
ON LAND POSTING
E litor of The Manning Times:
I have submitted to Governor Coop
er and certain members of the JLegis
lature, the justieQ and propriety of
amending Section 241, of the Criminal
Code of South Carolina, which per
mits a laridowner or the tenant there
of to post his land and forbid the en
try thereon of any person for the
purpose of hunting and fishing. In
order to show the justness of my pro
posed bill permit me to call the atten
tion of the public to the following
facts. There are a large number of
landowners in South Carolina, who do
not hunt themselves and coul(l not kill
ba partridge un(er any circumstances,
but nevertheless for selftsh reasons
have their many acres of land posted
against the honest sportsman. Fur
thermore, there are a large number of
non-rcsidents who own numerous
acres of land in South Carolina, who
do not hunt themselves, but have
their land posted against the entry
thereon, for the purpose of huntinr
and fishing, the resident citizens of
South Carolina. Besides, there are
numerous real estate agents in South
Carolina, who control land for specu
lative purposes, who have thousands
of acres of land posted against the
entry thereon of the citizens of the
State for the purpose of hunting and
fishing. These facts and conditions,
exist, despite the fact that Section
'Ik of the Criminal Code of South
Carolina, declares that all wild birds,
both resident and migratory, in this
State, shall be, and are hereby de
clared to be, the property of the State.
How inconsistent therefore for the
State of South Carolina to maintain
in one Act that the birds belong to
the people of the State, and at the
sate time, in another act, to declare
that the individual landowner can post
his land against the entry thereon of
any person for the purpose of hunting,
anl fishing. The following is the Act
which I have prepared as a remedy
for present existing conditions, which
I mointaii should be enacted into law,
and I hope every lover of hupting and
fishing will Support my proposed bill.
An Act to amend 1ection 241 of the
Criminal Code of South Carolina, by
striking out the proviso thereof, and
by adding on line four thereof after
the words "not excee(ling thirty day"
h f-llowinez. "Provide(l. That th
provisions of this Act shall not apply
to the nerson or persons making en.
try as aforesaid for hnting and fish
ing in accordance with the laws >f
South Carolina"; Eo that sai(l section,
when amnenl(led, shall read as follows:
Section 141. Every entry upon the
lands of anothcr, after notice from
the ownr or tenant prohibiting the
same, shall be a misdemeanor, and be
pumnished by fine not to exceed one
hundred dollars, or imprisonment with
hard labor on the public works of the
County not exceeding thirty (lays:
Provided, That the provisions of this
Act shall not apply to the person or
persons making entry as nforespid for
hunting and fishing in accordance
with the laws of South Carolina.
I respectfully submit, Mr. Ed itor,
tl.y proposed bill, if enacte(l into law,
will accomplish mueRl for the eradica
tion of selfishness in South Carolina,
"nd will restore the birds and fish to
the true owners thereof, namely, the
tiople of the State, which is solemnly
dleclared to be a fact and the law nn
dier the provisions of Section 715 of
the Criminal Code of South Caroiina.

For the third and last time we ex
pect to touch briefly on law-enforce
ment what we have already said and
what we expect to say at this writ. ng
in reference to our subject is about
little things. Realizing as we do that|
it would take an able lawyer to go
into big things in the way of violat-I
iwg many laws now on our statue
books as well as taking an able officer
of the law and the best df our citizens
to prosecute some of our folks who no
doubt sometimes trample our laws un
der their feet. Take for instance early
ing pocket guns which evidently is.
done by many who are regarded as!
good citizens and which no doubt is the
means of a many a good man's life
being "plit out." We are very much
of the opinion that if this violation of
our laws could be eliminated some peo-l
ple would not be so "hot headed'' and
when there came about a misunder
standiing between friends andi neigh
blors with guns at home these diflicul
ties we believe would be thrashed out
lots of times in a more reasonable and
satisfactory manenr and without
Sometimes we are almost persuad
ed that we have too many laws on our
statute books at present and still at
each session of our legislature it is
new bills on top of new bills which
almost. confuses some people as to
what certain laws really are initended
to take; for instance section 141 of tihe
Criminal Code of South Carolina which
pellrmits a man to post his land agai st
huntming and fishing and yet section
715 of the Criminal Code declares that I
the birds belong to the people of the|
State. With such laws as the above'
who knows just when they are within
Ihe law and when they are violating
the law. We understand that Mr. J. J.
Cantey has written Governor Cooper
aid several members of the Senate
and house to ha. . Section 241 amend
ed and let Section 715 be the law in I
reference to hunting and ishing.
Now in our last week's communica-l
tion we did not advocate a reduction
in salaries of ou) preachers and school
teachers and unless our mind changes
it will be a right long time before we
would agitate such a moveimuent
against a pcople who are doing a great.
Wtork for a reasonable small compen
sation, we are of the opinion that it
is a very nice thing to hold public of
iee at a right high salary have lots of
things given to you and live ,t homneo.
But it is quite another thing to bundle
up your "rags" hit the train and gol
many, many miles among strangers
leaving loved ones and friends at
home and labor six, nine and twelve
months and in lots of e:::ses maybe not
have an oportunity to visit home dur
ing the entire year or at least school
year. Yes if we were "boss" we would
say, if ony thing, give such people a
little more and nine times out of ten
youi will get a little more.
