Here are two extracts:

State, as tho name reaches the reading
public from various quarters. The
moonshinors who surrendered somo
time ago were ordered to appear be

States Commissior, in Greenville.
Two weeks ago the Radioala of ich

More recently, arrests haye been made
by United States marshals in Sumter,
and the prisoners are taken before
Warren It. Marshall, United States
Commissioner, in Charleston. Indeed
it would seem the proper thing to
prefix "Wrarren I." to all the United
States marshals in South Carolina, or
to everylody or everything else con
nected with Radicalism.
As the News and Courier is desirous
of being fully posted as to the biogra
phy of all the leading statesmen in the
world, and more especially in the
United States, we will give a short
sketchl of the individual now so promi
nently before the eyes of the State,
and who Is held as a rod in terrorem
over the heads of the misanthropic
moonshiners of the mountains, the
Rebel Red Shirts of Richland and the
salginary savages of Sumter. First,
let us say that Warren R. Marshall,
whether we find him paroling illicit
distillers in Greenville, running for
the Legislature in Richland, or en
forcing Devons' illegal orders in
Charleston, or all these at once, is
nevertheless, like our glorious Union,
"one and indivisible."
The subject of the present sketch
was born somewhere, and at some
past time. lie atteiided the State Mili
tary Academy mid served in the war.
Tle first indications of his future
political greatness were given in the
eamplaign of 1868, when he made
earnest and convincing speeches in
Richland in behalf of Seymour and
Blair, and denunciatory of Grant and
the Iepublican party. Subsequently
he reioved to Fairfield. In 1872, lie
announced himself as an INdependent
candidate for the Legislature, and
shortly after, delivered a good speech
at lridgeway in arswer to speeches
made there by F. J. Moses, Jr., and
Juidge Mackey, who were stumping
the State in advocacy of the claims of
loses to the govern6rship. His
ostensible reason for running was that,
he might, represent the honor and
integrity of the State and help to put
an end to corruption and Radicalisi.
In this lie was endorsed by many good
citizenls. However, before the canvass
ended lie got on the lepublican plat
form, in order to place his nalre he
fore tihe convention. In that conven
tion, which was secret, lie received 0
votes. If we mistake not he voted for
Grant, and the Radical ticket., giving
as an excuse tle plea that he had to
pledge himself to do evil that good
might come. In 1874 he supported
Chamberlain against Green, was a
candidate a second time for the Legis
lature, before the Radical convention,
and received about the same number
of votes as before. lie then ran for
reading clerk of the House and was
elected, and was also made trial
justice. In 1876, he first ran for
adjutant and( inispector general, an'd,
being beaten, ran in Fairfield for
Senator and received the Rsadical
nomiinatimon, but declined to make the
fight against Major Woodward, who
wouild make things lively, aiid Israel
Byrd was subs)titulted. IIere Marshall
openily avowed IRadicalism, and, we
priesuime to make cap)ital as a martyr,
alleged that the pleC1l of Ilidgeway
were goingt to kill himn, and got a lot
of negroes to guard his house. The
leading cit izens of IRidgeway told him
lie was making a fool of himself, and
actually volunteered to place a guard
of the best p)eop)le in thme p)lace to take
care of him. But this was not what
lie wanted. So lie p)osted off' to Co
lumubia in hot haste with his blood
curdling story. About this time lie
got into a personal difficulty with a
man in reference to a decision lie had
rendlered in his trial justice's court;
and thieni lie came to Winnsboro and
swore out warrants for p)oliical peCr
seution, just as Coghlan is now doinig
before him in Charleston. When
court camne on, the defendants were
acquiit ted without any trouble. By
this time Marshall had really become
obnoxious to the peop)le, but they did
nothing to him, and oni the contrary
carefully attended his wife who was
then (lying of consumption. During
all the thnie of the disputed election,
Marshall was strengthening the back
bone of the blacks. iIe became clerk
of Mackey's bogus Ihouse, and stayed
there until the collapse. Then, havinug
no i\irthier hope of p)olitical place In
Fairfield, lie moved to Columbia, and
in a month or t'Wo ran for probate
judge against the present Iicumbent,
being handsomely beaten for his pro
sumpnltion. Since that time, lie hase
held Federal office. Indeed, since
1872 he has either hold office or been
hunting for it.
This is the "Impartial" commissioner
before whiomi good citizens of Sunter
are brought up on trunmped-up chairges.
As sho wn above, Marshall knows all
about making thienm himself, . though
his plausibility would cause hin to
appear -to strangers as an angel' of
light. It will hoe 'blesed day ME
