p? The Kdcretleld Tragedy.
EdgfIri^ld, S. C., Octobdr 9, 1885.
To the Editor of the News and
* v Courier:
-; We find in your issue of the 7th inst.
}i*. the following editorial:
"The harrowini? nature of the recent
||?tragedy in Edgefield can hardly be better
illustrated than by the fact that one
vof the persons to be arrested as accomplices
is the son of Uulbreath, the murdored
man, while the affidavit on which
the warrants of arrest are based was
f:.V. Jiiade by the murdered man's own
jj||% - brother."
As counsel for the accused in the
Culbreath-IIamniond tragedies, this
gives us an opportunity to correct a luis

p; the complicity of Memphis Culbreatl),
a the son of O. T. Culbreath.
J . The idea of his presence on the occasion
of his father's taking oil' is naturally
revolting. We state upon our personal
and professional responsibility,
from assurances received by us and
which we believe, that he was not only
I'/. not present,,but was in no sense a party
tothe killing of his father, and had no
knowledge of the transaction which led
to his death.
As to the other parties accused we do

method to enter into their defence.
We only ask that the public suspend
judgment until a judicial investigation
can be had.
We feel that great injustice has been
done in the hasty and intemperato criti-v
cisma, made no doubt under a missapprehension
of the true state of facts.

Chester, October 15.?The case of
the State vs. D. K. Keid, charged with
selling liquor without license, was
tried yesterday afternoon. Mr. J. J.
Hemphill and J. M. McNeil representing
the defendant, the solicitor representing
the State. The jurj\ after con
siaering tne case ail last night, were unable
to agree on a verdict. The testimony
was conflicting, the witnesses for
the State swearing to the purchase of
liquor from the defendant or his clerk
and tho witnesses for the defendant denyirtgthe
gale of it Counsel for the
defendant took the position that it was
no violation of law to sell liquor in
Chester. It was claimed that Judge
Cothrau having ruled that Chapter 65
-of the General Statutes, containing the
general liquor law had no application to
Chester, the amendment of that chaptor
by Act of the Legislature could not
impose a fine where none existed before
the amendment. The solicitor
took the ground that without reference
to.the amendment of Chapter 65 it was
unlawful under that chapter as it stood
before the amendment to sell liquor in
the town of Chester. Judge Kershaw
sustained the position of the solicitor.
To the Pnbiic.
It is due to the people of Kdgefield
County to whom T am obligated for the
confidence they have reposed in me in
the past, and for the honors they have
conferred upon me. that I should say
that at the proper time I shall vindicate
myself from the charge of crime recently
preferred against roe. I only
ask, and to this the humblest citizen of
the county is fairly entitled, that the
public suspend judgment until the
matter can receive judical investigation,
the result of which I patiently and confidently
await. Iam in the hands of
my counsel and therefore am not at liberty
to say more at present only to assure
my friends and the people of the
county that when the truth shall have
