The Case of Stiles Moore.
At the hour of going to. prosi
last Thursday, the case of ths
State vs- Stiles Moore, charge<
with rape, had just been opened
and no account could be given of i
1 'wovor, on account of thesick
niess of Mr, E. L. LHerendon, on1
of the attorneys forthe dotense,
to ease (lid not pro~ced very fm

ed until Friday morning at i
o'elock. At that hour court con.
vened; at 11:15 a. m. the testimo
ny was all in and E. L. Herneon
Eeq. opened tho argument fjr the
defense. Speeches were also made
11y Senator J. R Earle and Major
Win. J. Stribling, and at 4 :55 So,
licitor J. E. Boggs closed tUe argil.
m1lolt for th StaIto.
Hie Honor, Jldge George E.
Prince then charged tl jury up)n,
every point of Ihe law totiching ip
on the case, and the jury retired to
their roin. After being out all
night, ati an early hour Saturday
miornllfg they announiced that the
following vordit had been reach
ed : "'Guilty of rape with carnal
knowledge of a female child under
14 yeais aid over 10 years of ago,
vith recominondation to the mercy
of.the Court." Coisequontly the
punishment would naturally be
light, and Judge) Prince imfl podsed a
son t enee of .1.4 ) ei rs at hard I aboi
in the Stato Peniteitiary.
The1 criio tor which Stiles
Moore was charged was one of the
most heinous and revolting ever
recorded for trial it the grand old
State of South Carolian.
