When Malloy was convicted and
sentenced to be hanged, Messrs
Owens and Lot J rando appealed to
tho supremo court for r. mw trial.
This saved Malloy's lifo till thc
s?pome court could render its de
cision. When tho decision was
rendered, it upheld thc conviction
and sentence, and so Malloy was
ro-sentenccd last week by .Judge
Aldrich to be hanged on May 22,
K Wallace Evans, on whose
plantation the murder occurred,
says that there is an impression
out that he is in favor of having
Malloy"s sentenced commuted. Mr
Evans says this is an error, how
ever. Ile believes that Malloy
ought to have been hanged before
now, and that he will do all he cnn
to prevent the commutation of thc
sentence. Mr Evans says that if
thc petition is sent to Columbia,
ho will go before the pardon board
and ask them to allow the law to
? take its course. Ile says that,
while Malloy was a good hand on
his place, he cannot defend such a
brutal murder as tins was.
It is said that several of the ju

State treasury from all counties.
Of course the house would not
agree with Mr. Lane, but he was
talking in the interest of pure pro
hibition, and pure anything is rare
these days. Mr. Lane is one of
the consistant kind, however, he
was ono of the trustees of that
