Arraignment from the Blench. t
Ili opining the eourt, of geveral
s ions for lMie, Uandi Ceunty, the oc
ct-ion was signalized by Judge Bonet
in a charge to the grand jury w hich
calli the attention of too public very
forcibly to the crying evil of carrying
concealed weapons, a practice that is
largely responsible for the terrible re- i
cord of homicides in thi, State. Judge
lienet said there certainly is need for
t-omue logislation 104W i og1 to the reduc
tion in the number of homicides that t
aninully occur In South Carolina, the ,
year 18911 showing a total of 242, w bich
is an average authia'er. The followine

" What is the cause, geitlemen. of
this extraordinary numhr of lioti
citles ? I amr su(r ael one of you
can assign certainly as one cause the
deplorable custom of carryin! pistolts,
a custom carried to such an extent
that our State may he regarded an
armored caip in times of peace. Oar
young men and boy4, back and white,
rich and voor, seem to think that their
outilL is not coipleto wiituout a pistol
some of our older men show a bad
example, and I regret to say soin1e
p)ublic ollicials have on occasions been
found armed in violation of the iaw.
I'istols are carried not as a protection
at night in some lonely road or in some
remote part of the country during the
day or in some dangerous neighbor
hood, but at public micetings, on the
streets, at, social gatrierings, even at
dances, even at daily labor, and follow
ing the plough, and I add also even at
cnurch and prayermth etiny ; and Its for
th ise gatherings known ao the ragroes'
hot suppers, is there ever a hot supper i
without a cold corpse' The negro
will imitate the wa ite man and initate
him more successfu3lly in his vice and
his crimes than In his virtues.
" Mr. Poreiuan and ttlcmnt , it
would be an intert bng t. xperitnent if
the court were at tls moment to
order the sheriff and his bailifls to
search the pocket-, of hli in this court
house now and see how many pisto.s
will be found, earriied on the person;
concealed even in the Ltemuple of justice.
Gentlemen, as surely as this lament
able habit continues- so surely will two
or three hundred of our feliow citizens
annually il untimely graves, the vic
timls of the pistol habit. It is a fear
ful prieu to pay for the privilege of
carrying aris. It is not only utnliaw
ful to carry arms conc.oed upon the
person, but, it is unehritian, uncivi
liz-3d and still more shou d the anuoal
be made to the. youth of the couii try

and cowardly, and altoguther unneces

causes our young men, no doubt, to
hold human life very cheap, and it a
causes them also to have false ideas of
bravery and true manliness, and it has
lofused in the pubii mninl wrong and
vicious views of the rigit, of self-de- -
"Gentlemen of the grar.d jury, how
many corpses of mn slato by the I).- j

searched in vain for the pistol, and yet
the slayers have lut, )U p1 their plea of

them on that piua, ecase forsooth i
the defendant, the man-oiayer. te-talid
that when he shot his victim had pot,

about to place it there, and he wis in
duced to believe by that act that, h'

in self-defense. If i-hut presuminption is
