COURT'S CHARGE TO
THE BRAND JURORS
MESSAGE WAS DELIVER.
ED BY JUDGE GARY
Will Convene at 9:30 and Recess
From 1:30 U? 3?Will Emu
Each Evening at .6 O'clock.
Tin; spring term of the court of
Relierai sessions for Anderson coun
ty was convened yesterday morning
m la oYIck, with Judge Prank it.
Gary of Abbeville, presiding. It whs
nearly 11 o'clock before the court had
lawn organized, the duluy being caus
ed by I ho lurdiness of one of the grand
juror.-. When this man arrived Mr.
James It. Anderson was appointed
foreman of the tribunal and the
wheels of the court machinery were
sei in motion.
The court's charge to the grand
Jury was a particularly strong one. As
this was the first time some of the
members had been called as grand Ju
orsr, the court took occasion to re
mind them of the responsibility that
rests upon them. He stated that the
grand Jury was in charge of the liseal
affairs of Anderson County and di
rectors of the county for the year
1!?ir>. ||c pointed out to them thut
much of the responsibility for observ
ance of the law rested npon their
shoulders, and that It was their duty
to present for prosecution not only
those defendants named in warrants
handed them by the solicitor but any
violator of the law against whom they
Judge Gary admonished the grand
jurors that the affairs of the county
were in their keeping and that if any
employee of the county was not doing
his duty it is their business to see
thut he does. He udvised the grand
Jury to make frequent and thorough
examination of the books of the coun
ty ollleials. to give proper attention to
the roads of the county and to the
poor, who have no other source to
look to but the grand Jury. He re
minded them that the public schools
of tho county were In their care and
cautioned them to see that the affairs
of these institutions are always prop
The court suggested to tho grand
jury that they ask the county delega
tion to have enacated tho necessary
legislation providing for the drawing
of a panel of 20 or more tallsruen for
grand Jury duty and the selection of
tho first 18 of these who reported for
duty when court.convened. This sug
gestion was prompted by the delay
due to the tardiness,of one of the
grand jurors? ,
Judge Gury stressed the vital im
portance of enforcement of the law
a*r?inst tho sale of blind tiger whis
key and the carrying of pistols, as
these two sins are responsible for
more lawlessness thap any other
agents that could be found.
Upon the convening of court the fol
lowing tulismen were excused: J. W
Sanders, J. X. Owens. John B. Adger,
J. C. Busby. W. C. King and S. C.
Bean. To take the place of these and
provide other jurors, an extra venire
was ordered drawn.
Judge Gary announced that the
hours of court would be from 9:30 a.
in. to 1:30 p. m. nnd from Ii p. m. to 0

DOES NOT CONSIDER HY
SELS OF WAR

USED IN AIR
Germany Says They Must Be Re
garded as War Vessels and De
livery Should Be Stopped.
(Ry Aiworintcd Pres?.)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 1.- In reply to
Germany's protest against the build
ing of hydro-acropiunes by American
manufacturers for England and Rus
sia. Secretary Hryan bus informed the
German ambassador that the State de
partment does not concur in the con
tention that auch craft are vessels of
war "whose delivery to belligerent
States by neutrals should be stopped.
Tlie correspondence on the subject
wus made public today by Mr. Hryan.
On January 19, Count von llerns
torff wrote the secretary of State, say- |
ing hydro-aeroplanes were being sold
to the allies, detailing the companies
by which the parts were built and ad
"There Is no doubt that hydro
aeroplanes must he regarded as war
vessels whose delivery to belligerent
States by neutrals should be stopped
under article 8 of the 13th conven
tion of the second Hague conference
of October 18. 1907. Hydro-aeroplanes
are not mentioned by name In the con
vention simply because there was none
In 19?7. at the time of the conference.
"On the supposition Mint hydro
aeroplanes are delivered to belli
gerents against the wishes of the gov
ernment of the United States, I have
'he honor to bring the foregoing to
your excellency's kind knowledge."
Secretary Bryan replied under date
of January 29 as follows:
"Excellency: I have the honor to
acknowledge the receipt of your ex
cellency's note of the 19th iustnnt. and
In reply have to inform you that the
statements contained In your excel
lency's note have received my careful
consideration in view of the earnest
purpose of this government to perform
every duty which Is imposed upon it
as a neutral by treaty stipulation and
"The essential statement In your
note, which Implies an obligation on
the part of this government to inter
fere In the sale and delivery of hydro
aeroplanes to belligerent powers is-.
" 'There is no doubt thnt hydro
aeroplanes must be regarded as war
vessels whose delivery to belligerent
States by neutrals should be stopped
under article 8 of the 13th convention
of the- second Hague conference of
October 18. 1907.*
"As to this assertion of the char
acter of hydro-aeroplanes, I submit
the following comments: The fact
that a hyrdoaeroplane is fltte- with
apparatus to rise from and alight up
on the sea does not in my opinion give
it the character of a vessel any more
that1 the wheels attached to an
aeroplane fitting it fo rise from and
alight upon land give the latter the
character of a land vehicle Both the
hydro-aoroplane nnd the aero-aero
plane are essentially aircraft; as an
aid in military operations they can
only be used in the air; the fact that
one starts its flight from the- surface
of the sea and the other from the land
Is a mere Incident which in no way
affects their aerial character. '<
"In view v>f these facts I must dis
sent from your excellency's assertion
that 'there is no doubt that 'hydro
aeroplanes must be regarded Is war
vessels.' and consequently I do not re
gard the obligations imposed by treaty
or by the accopted rules of Inter
national law applicable to aircraft of
''In this connection I further call
your excellency's attention that, ac
cording to the latest "advices ?receiVed
by this department,"the Gorman im
perial government include 'balloons
and flying machines and their compo
nent parts In the list of conditional
contraband, and that In the Imperial
Prize ordinance, drafted September<30,
1909, and issued in - the Reichs
estzblatt on August 3, 1915, appear
as conditional contraband 'airships
soil flying, machines, (article ;23. sec
tion 8). It thus appears that the Im
perial government have placed and -re
tain aircrafts of all descriptions) in
the class, of conditional contraband,
tor which no special treatmont Involv
ing neutral duty, Is,so far n.i I am ad
vised, provided by any treaty ' to
which the United States Is a signatory
or adhering powor.
"As in the views of this department
the provisions of convention XIII of
the second Hague, conference do hot
apply to hydro-aeroplanes- I do not
consider It necessary to discuss the
questions as to whether those provis
ions are in force during the present
