The summer term of- court
for Pickens count y, the first to
be held here since ihe -new 'cir
cuit was created, convened Mon
day morning with Judge Maul
din presiding. F. H. Anderson,
the new court stenographer for
this district, was at his post. as
was Solictor- Bonham. Judge
Mauldin presides with grace and
dignity. His charges are clear,
unbiased and to the- point. and
it is safe to predict that by the
time hehas completed the rounds
of the circuits of the state he
will be one of the most popular
judges-presiding over any court.
A good many people were
present opening day.
Probably the case which at
tracted most attention is that of
the State vs. L. L. Hendricks.
charged with the murder of
Henry Brock. This ca-e was
continued, as Judge Mauldin is
disqualified from presiding over
its trial, he being distantly re
lated to the Brock family. This
case will come up at the next
term of court here.
The case of the State vs. Mar
shall ^ Summey, a 15-year-old
boy, charged with killing Dewey
Dobson, a 14-year-old bov, came
..up Monday and it was thought
would be disposed of in a short
time, as it was generally, sup
posed that the killing was an
accident, but the testimony took
a rather sensational turn and
the case developed into a legal
battle of some proportions be
tween Solicitor -Bonham for the
State and Carey & Carey for the
defense. After being out l1 hrs.
the jury said not guilty.
Mull court proceedings will be
given in The Sentinel next week.
