The Lynching of Jackson.
*The lynching of Willis Jack
son at Honea Path last week
adds another stain to the fair
name of South Carolina. It
cannot be justified upon any
-ground whatever. -There was
provocation for it, but it was
not sufficient to justify the peo
ple who engaged in it to commit
murder. The provocation was
great, we admit; it was enough
to stir Anglo-Saxon blood; the
ilty culprit should have been
"-punished. but with all this the
people who killed him should
have. allowed their brains in
stead of their passions to control
There is not the slightest pre.

heinous crime that can be com

the taking of human life by
Under our law one charged

son was1 -will ost surely

The legislature has made even
the attempt or assault with in

punishable with death unless
the jury recommends to mercy.
South Carolina is governed
and controlled by the white peo

also made the law such that the

The law has thrown around
them every safeguard and pro

Justice John Marshall Har

were, "Good-bye, I am sorry I

The Pickens Association.
The Pickens Baptist Associ
ation met with the Nine Forks
Church about 14 miles east of
here last Wednesday, the 11th,
and continued in session three
days. The first day was rather
threatening and the attendance
of the delegates and visitors was
not very large but the next day
every church in the association
was represented and the atten
dance of visitors very large.
The body was organized by
the election of Hon. W. T. Bow-1
en as Moderator, Mr. G. R. May
field as Clerk -mnd Mr. R. T.<
The claims of Home Missions,
Temprance and Sunday schools
was considered the first day.
The reports on these subjects
showed an increase and more
interest than for the previous
year. The Sunday school inter
ests was especially encouraging
and steps were taken to organize
a Sunday School Union to be2
held at some church every fifth
Sunday and Saturday before.2
A committee was appointed to
plan for these meetings and be
fore adjournment it was decided
to hold the first Union at Cross
Roads church the next fifth
Saturday and Sunday. The
secnd day of the meeting ws
clear and bright and a large
number was present. State
Missions and the Laymen's Mis
sionary Movement were the
most important subjects con
sidered, and they were both
represented by Rev. W. E. Wil- 0
kins, the Laymen's Secretary, I
who charmed the people with
his earnest appeals. These in
terests have a large place in the
hearts of the people of the asso- a
ciation, and they stand by them 5
