The County Frauds. |
Without expressing ourselves as
believing or discrediting the evidence
given by Humbert at the late session
of the Court, in reference to the com
plicity of other persons in tho frauds
that have been tn the past perpetrated
in this county with perfect impunity,
and without making any comments as
to the seeming probability of that
testimony, we give below a few facts
which are matters of record as relat
ing to this matter.
P. II. Greene did not have a settle
ment with the school commissioner
?br the State appropriation because,
by no fault of bis own, be was unable
to elfect this settlement, but he turn
ed over to T? K. Sasporlas, his sue
< essor in thc county treasurer's ollice,
vhcs? vouchers, and took his receipt
for thc same, as is clearly established
by the following ailidavit:
Extracts from inventory of books,
papers, vouchers, accounts, furni
ture, &C, lind receipt lor the same"
given by T. iv. Sasporta-o to l'Yhiik
H. Greene, late treasurer of ?r
angeburg County, S. C., upon T.

Q. Those vouchers were placed in
your oilico, were they not?
A. They were.

A. Wlnle oh the train ot tho south
Carolina Kuilroa.il, going fro iii Or
ungeburg Columbia, l*told Mr.
Andrews that I had missed some of
thc vouchers out of my olllce, of the
settlement he (Andrews) had made
with mc. Mr. Andrews told me that,
inasmuch as a committee of thc grand
jury of the county hud been appoint
ed to investigate all the oillces of thc
county, that the best thing I could do
for myself, before that committee,
was to make a statement to the effect
that J. Ii. Humbert, county treasurer,
had come into my ollice during my
absence, abstracted Andrews' vouch
ers and made a settlement with me,
I as county treasurer, fdr the State ap
I propriation of the school fund of this
I county for tho year ending October
131,187-1, as*he (Andrews) held my
j receipt in full for his settlement.
(,)., by Humbert. Did I abstract
j any vouchers appertaining to Mr. T.
j C. Andrews' settlement?
A. You did not; but Andrews did.
A few days after the conversation
spoken of as having taken place on
the train, I met Mr. Andrews at
Orangeburg Court House. He told
me that he had taken those papers
out of my oilice that were missing, for
! the purpose of cancelling them, as
! they had not been properly cancelled ;
that he had tried to borrow from
Humbert some of his school papers
to put in my ollice in place of those
he (Andiews) had taken out, and
I that Humbert had refused to give
J him tliose papers.
Before this same committee Primus
Harwick, being sworn, testified :
I was Mr. McKinlay's clerk. I
was clerk for him from the time Mr.
Andrews was treasurer until Mr. Mc
Kinlay went out of ollice. Mr. An
drews hud -onie papers in the ollice
so mo impert? that he had made a set
tlement, wilh Mi. McKinlay with
that had been changed twice. They

Upon the whole I think the gen' Io
nen who have the management ol' .his
Exhibition, and those who have rsar
d booths of extortion in and around
t, do not full)' understand their day.
They have failed to take into account
he recent panic and the depression
a business and industry which par
ades the country. There are mil
lions who desire to come here -for
leasure and for improvement, but
he denizens of. the "City ol' Brother
