MYERS IS CONVICTED
ON FIRST CHARGES
JURY TWICE FOUND HIM
DERRICK IS FREE
Proprietor of Dixie Club, After
Working Few Hours, Paid
$700 and Was Released.
Moro Interest ia evident in and I
around the city of Anderson In the]
liquor trials now in progress herc
than over any similar affairs in I
months gone hy. The public eagerly
awaited details of the trial of J. E.
Derrick and Tully as much interest is
hoing manifested in the trial of Lewis
Myort. proprietor of the OWIB Club.
. Ono of the most Interesting things
to occur yesterday was in connection
witt, the Dorrlck case. When the city
[street gang went out yesterday morn
' '?r Derrick went with it and was
ced st work on North Main street,
which the city officials have come
- considerable criticism. The of
fice? . say that this was done without !
their knowledge and they had no in- j
tention of putting him there and at
noon Mayor Godfrey called Derrick
into his office and made him a pro
position still moro lenient than was
the fine of $1,000. This Derrick ac
cepted and was shortly after released!
I from custody. He paid Sfmn in cash !
I and gave a note for $200, due on Jan- j
I uary 1. Thus he earned $300 by work- ,
lng for one morning on the streets j
of the city.
Myers was arraigned yesterday,
morning at 10 o'clock with G.
Cullen Sullivan appearing fori
the city and A. H. Dagnall for j
the defense. The most Inter
I esting feature of the morning BOB- I
s'on might be termed Mr. Dagnall's |
remarks concerning tho well-known
churchmen and others assembled to I
licar the trial. Mr. Dagnall says that
anyone who goes to the court room
out of mere idle curiosity should be
condemned. He says that most peo- 1
plc crowd Ute court room because they
are In sympathy with the defendant j
I and that still others go in an effort
j to coerce or influence and intimidate]
the jury and that Ute crowd ossem-1
bled yesterday must belong to ope of
these three classes. He presumed that
all his hearers were present because
they were in sympathy with the de- !
fendant, ? .
In the first case J. W. Jones, who
operated here as a detective, was
sworn and testified that on the af
ternoon of October 23, he and Earl
Thomas visited Myers' place together
and purchased some*beer. He testi
fied that he knew what beer was, had I
at times been "tight'..and that three
bottles of the quality dispensed by j
Myers would "?ave the desired effect.''
Earl Thomas was next, called and
I testified that be had stopped fo? a few
minutes In a dru? store on the day
[referred to by Jones, that he was ap
proached while in the store by Jones
and that he finally consented to car
ry Jones Myers* place. He testi
fied thsi they *rank a bottle of beer
Lhere. This wat* pracUcally th? ??h
I stance of his evidence.
rvilcc Captain JO. E. Bell and Pa
trolman Brown both testified coueern
I lng what they found in the club when
?it was raided and identified articles
brought from the place.
This ended the evidence for the city
and" the defense put no one on tho
i stand. The case went to the Jury, tho
I Jury was ont three minutes and re*
t turned a verdict of guilty.
The second casa ag?inst Myers be-1
gan at S o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Practically the same evidence In every
! detail was presented except that in
I this instance Bari Thomas wsz not
sworn and in hla stead Mt C. Baxter
took .the stand and swore aa to he and
Jones buying beer In Myers* place.
?The Jury deliberated for hut a few
minutes In this case and als? return
ed a verdict ot guilty.
There will be no cases heard this |
I morning to the liquor trial? hut court
will be convened again this after
noon at 3 o'clcck and Myers will again
be placed on trial
