A "Most Danable Conspiraey."
COLUMIA, December 14.-Now
that thc coisp)i racy to conviet
Democratic citizons in the United
States COirt by means of juries
packed with Republicans and
(Greenbackers has failed, it is a
iatter of justice to those who
stood l) for right against oppres
sion that the public should be
given their names, and on the
other hand it is a matter of justice
to the public to know the iames of
the miserable gang who, under
oath to well and truly try and
true deliverance make, voted ev
ery time in the jury-room to con
vict ihniocent imell oil al)SolutelyN, nto
proof, and who w ould have done
so equally as speedily if the Gov
ernment had not even gone through
the farce of' a trial. The three
men to whom the people of South,
Carolina owe the deliverance of
the defendants in the cases are
AMessrs. Cullen Lark of Laurens,
J. C. Long of Union, andl Ileze
kiah Ellis ot Kershaw. These
gentlemen were as umed by Mel
lon and Speer, because of their
Greenback and llepihlican sym
ptathics, to be like the rest of their
cringing millions of the panel, but
they were mistaken. And to
prove that the ef1ort was to con
viet, 'estimlonly, MNeltonl eliminatedi
t hese gentlemten from his select
crowd just as fast as lie fouid
they were niot, like the others, his
slaves, willing and ready to (10 his
dir-ty Work. Theli nams f, thle
white jurors whlo in every cae in~
which they were usedl voted for
convict ion, were iMidldlton Ray of~
Si artanhl urg, Ful11er Priekett of~
(O rangebu rg, C. C. Turnier of Spar
t anburg, J. II. Johnlson of (Claren
dlon., W. 11. GAranlt of Chesterfiel .:
1). C. Wolfe of Lancaster, E. R.
iRolger' of ( hiarlestonE'. L. Arther
of Oranigeburg, anid John) Agniew~
of (Cohlumbia. Tlhe negroes are
not mfenltioneJid. iNothuingr better
(could( be exp ected from them, but
the niames abi ove giveni are whiiteC
men. Thley have east their lot
with the lowest elements of the
1Had ical party. ILt lhe people
compesing the (commulnities in
which they live see to it that they
henceforth find (t1heir associates
there and1 for'eever shut out as un
ele'an thing2s fromn the threshioldl of'
dlecent andi( respectale society.
There can be no claim from these
juror1s that they acted fromeconsci
enltious~ reasons and founded their
action upon the testimony. It is
p)ositively known, and1 it dare not
be deniedl, that these jurors, with
the Republican neg-oes on the
panle1, actuanly held caucuses and
bound each other to vote for
conviction before the cases were
brought to trial. Was there ever
such a travesty of justice in a free
Mr. Long, by whose manly ad
herience to his oath as a juror the
Marion defenIldants weIre saved
0rom conviction, is from a green
hack famil v, and attended these
Caucuses al'hough having no Qym
pathy in their nefarious object.
Melton thought lie luid Long all
right, ) helause his henchmen re
por-ted that Long had attended the
caucuses(I'l was Ira<.'(-hIot for con
Vict ion. But Long was play ing a
gane that. \Ielton didn't under
stand, and Melton got left.
