AGAINST L. R. MYERS
HAS DEFENDANT SKIPPED
THAT IS REPORT
Trial Heard Yesterday Was in Ab
sence of Defendant But Court
Increaser] ii.'^rest waa manifested
locally ir? thc third tri?! of Lewis lt.
Myers, held nt the city court yester
day afternoon, locuuse of the report
variously circulated throughout the
city, that Mr. Myers had left town.
Whether this ls true or not has not
been substantiated. He was charged
with selling on the afternoon of Oct.
24, alcoholic liquors to M. C. Buxter,
an Atlanta detective.
He was convicted. The Jury remain
ed out only a few minutes and follow
ing their verdict, A. H. Darnall, at
torney for the defendant, gav? notice
of appeal. As In the former cases
against Mr. Myers, his attorney ob
jected to the Jurors not being placed
upon their voire dire and that body
having been selected before he ex
hausted his premptory challenges. He
also demurred IJ the Jurisdiction of
the court, which was overruled.
One of the developments of the pase
was the placing upon his voire dire
by the city attorney of tho Juror J.
W. DobhitiB, who testified on the direct
examination by Attorney Sullivan
that he had expressed an opinion
about thc matter and he stated that
his opinion could not he changed.
When questioned by Mr. Dagnall he,
however, stated that if he were cho
sen he would render an honest 'opin
ion. Thc court excused him and Mr.
DagnaH objected to tho same and had
this fact recorded.
The first witnesB for the city was
M. C. Baxter, who testified that he was
In the employ of the city ot Anderson
as a detective and that he had bought
beer from Lewis lt. Myers on the
moiling and afternoon of October 24,
paying 20 cents per botlo for same;
that Mr. Myers' place 1B located over
Mr. WinWord's atore on South, Main
Btreet; he said that tho beer was ice,
cold. On croas examination he testi
fied that Mr. Jones, his partner, was
also a detective and when asked If the
statement made by Mr. Jones to Mr.
Meyers, when he, (Baxter) was in
troduced to Mr. Meyers, Baying, "he
ls a friends of mine and all right" was
a 'aise statement. He said that it was
uot Asked if he did not consider that
Mr. Jones was deliberately deceiving
Mr. Myers In so introducing him,
maintained that he did not think he
was. Stated that he drank whiBkey
frequently and had been drunk. Ask
ed if he did not have to drink "by his
little lonesome" except as regarded
Mr. Jonea, replied "yoa^"
L. W. Jones, tho next Witness, testi
fied that he had been introduced to
Mr. Myers by Bari Thomas. Asked if
ho did not deliberately deceive Mr.
Myers and tell a He when he Intro
duced Mr. Baxter to him (Myers) wit
ness hesitated, finally saying that he
did not look at it that way. His tes
timony otherwise corroborated that of
iiuAu i. nM?u ii uti >-. ullin uui Teil
a lie in the detective business, in or
der to catch a blind tiger, said "No
slr, I would not." Attorney Dagnall
of the defense then said "You can take
some advice from me, young roan, you
will quit the detective business right
now, if you look at it that way."
Capt O. E. Bell of the police depart
ment waa the next witness. He des
cribed the arrangement of Myer's
plsce and referred to the raid of same
on the night of October 25. He drew
a sketch vm a piece of paper and ex
plained th a arrangement of the place
by the me of same. Asked on cross
examination If he found any liquor,
sali no. Asked if he found anything
there at all, except that In a locker,
itald no. Asked if ho found anything
in the locker, flt to drink, said no.
Said that he had a search warrant
when he entered the place.
Earle Thomas, the nest witness,
said that he introduced Mr. Jones to
Mr. Myers on the night of October 23
and that Mr. Myers place was located
over Mr. Wtlllford's g >c?ry store.
Asked how he introduced Jones, said
"Mr. Myers. Mr. Jonea" Asked on
cross examination if he thought aa
much of Mr. Jones now as he did two
weeks ago, answered, amid the laugh
ter of the court room. "No slr."
The city here rested its case and
the defendant offered no testimony.
Mr. Sullivan argued the case along
the usual lines, delivering an eloquent
plea for the city. Mr. Dagnall's argu
ment for the defense waa one of the
best ever heard in Anderson, was logi
cally gotten together. Illustrated by
readings from several law books, cit
ing numerous cases, on the question
of former Jeopardy and contending
that If the defendant waa again con
victed, he would in effect have been
twice coa.icted for the same offense,
tn Ticlation of thc Sngia?,? cemmo?
law of more than 1,000 years duration
and also in absolute violation of the
constitution of the United States and
of the State of South Carolina. He fur
ther Illustrated hts arguments con
cisely with regard to a similar state
of fsct tn other crimea, from the
standpoint of former Jeoparty.
Close ef Case.
Mr. Bagnell dramatically closed
his argument with a plea for Justice,
mattering not who the defendant was,
nor with what he was charged. He
stated that no man could be crtlctsed
for defending any person accused ot
crime; that mere accusation of crime
was not crime and that If the day
ever came to pas 4a South Carolina
when a man was criticised for defend
ing a person simply charged with
crime, that lt would indeed be a bax'
day for ?he State.
At no time during the trial was the
I defendant present and the rumor that
he ha? fled the city ls very persistent,
although many discount it.
Further charges against Myers will
he taken up awaiti this morning, re
gardless of whether or not the defen
dant is present In person.

Interesting Vv?tor to Anderson
Told of Things Going on in
His Native Land.
That Anderson will soon be a
wholesale distributing point for
flowers to all parts of North Caro
lina, South Carolina and Georgia 1B
thc statement made following the ar
rival of V. Van Staalduijnen in An
derson last night; This gentlemtn
came to Anderson as a representative
of a well known flower and bulb con
cern of Lisse, Holland, and has agreed
lu form a partnership with Purman
Smith, the well known wholesale
Beedsman of Anderson. They will em
bark in the business on a large scale
and will operate throughout three of
the Southern. States.
The visitor bas l>_-er, ir. America for
only three weeks and he tells some
very interesting stories about things
going on in his country. He says that
Holland fears absorption at the hands
of Germany although his country ls
well able to cope wth the attack of
the enemy, should it ever come. "The
sympathies of the greater portion of
my people are with the Allies." says
Mr. Staalduijnen, "lor wc believe Gie
violation of thc neutrality of Belgium
was a crime for which Germany will
be held to account and h?r ?rrsiee
will be conquered before the war is
He says that thc German army must
not be discounted; that is is a won
derful machine and that lt will take
months and months of v/eary fighting
to ?ul lue the Germans if it Is ever
done. He thinks that the war will
certainly continue for two years or
possibly longer, although he believes
that the Allies will eventually win:
Mr. Staalduijnen says that there arc
hundreds of thousands of Belgians,
homeless and without food, in Rolland
and JU their way to that country and
that thc people of his country are do
ing their very best to take caro of Gie
countless throngs' coming Into Hol
land every day. Formerly _ hts coun
try bought food stuff from ttussia, ac
cording to the visitor, but they have
now resorted to the United States and
aro obtaining the bulk of their sup
plies from this country.
The foreigner says that if Germany
wins an effort will certainly be made
to abb-orb not only Belgium but Den-,
mark and Holland as well. He says,
however, that the tallest German he
ever saw was but a few Inches more
than six feet tall and that it. will be
a comparatively simple mater to cope
with them. All the people of Holland
will try to get to Amsterdam and
then the gates to the Dykes will be
opened. Holland is nine feet below the
sea level and When the gates are op
oned the country will be leveled with
the sea. If no German is nine feet tall,
then they must all be drowned.
Mr. Staalduijnen will leave Ander
son this morning for Greenville and,
the friends he has made in this city
will look forward to his return and
will welcome him as a permanent resi
dent pf Anderson. .

Delivers One of thc Best Address
Ever Heard in Anderson Sun
The address Sunday morning at
Bethel Methodist church by Hon. C.
C. Featherstone, of Greenwood, was
one of the best ever heard in Ander

reputation as an orator, and this repu
tation did not suffer in his address to
the 300 persons who composed his au
dience Sunday morning. The hour for
morning service at Bethel church waB
given over to Mr. Featherstone, who
war. present on invitation of the pas
tor. Rev. Dunner.
The speaker did not confine himself
to a particular subject, but his ad
dress was given mostly to a discus
sion of those things which make for
manhood. His statement that the prac
tical truths of Christianity applied to
everyday life would solve many of
the troubles to which we are hoir,
seemed to find a ready response in
his audience. His application of the
needs *of boys and girls made a last
ing impression on those present.
"God," said the speaker, "has only
made one man out of the dust of the
earth. All the others have baen made
out of hoys." Considerable merriment
was caused over an answer by a lit

what G'od made men out of. "Sand,"
replied the little fellow. Judging from
the use made of this article by many
