A Negro to Reveal Himuelf WriseS toJudge
TAe State, April 5.
In tho criminal court yesterday Judge
Benet struck about the worst specimen
of a criminal that he has foand in his
experience. He was a negro named
Jim Denver and was charged with
breaking into a railroad car and lar
eny. Before be was arraigned he
sent to the judge the following re
City of Columbia, State of South
Carolina, Richland eounty.
Judge to Honor:. I Make my Live
Ing by stealing, I was on the gang 6
times, Judge i will hari Revenge on
this City if have to Slio a Round in
the might and Burn one house Down.
I Will do it Judge if i get ander 7
years. Judge i was Befoure you in
Charleston, S. C. i am a ceorgia Boy
From Savannah, ga. i Will put the
City to a lot of troub!e. i will Steal
and Burn just as long as i live if I get
under 7 years. Judge this is the whole
truth a Bout my self.
Shortly afterwards he sent the fol
lowing to Judge Benet:
I am not guilty of the Charge you
have against me Judge. i will Steal
and Burn Just so Long as i live. i
Know yon Can't Send me to the State
prison foi i am nt gailty. i have
committ a crime of Burning in this
City But thear never could Catch me.
Judge I am 21 years old. I will Com
mitt Murder on Some of the oiffeers of
this City In the Dead Hours of the
night to have my Spite. Judge you
eant not Seud me to the State prison.
Judge i Will left this City in a Dose
late State if i Lose my life.
When Denver was arraigned he en
tered a plea of not guilty and pre
ceeded to defend himself. This he
did in a most intelligent and indeed
adroit manner. He was, however,
co3victed. When the court ordered
him to stand up to receive his sea
tence, Judge Benet read the remarka
ble letters above. Judge Benet asked
him if he had written tbem. He said
he h-d. He was asked what he hoped
to gain by such leiters. He said he
merely wi-bed t.,> show the jadge his
character. .He then said that he had
set ire to the Allen University build
ing in 1395 and had destroyed it. There
was not the slightest indication of
insanity in the fellow; he simiyly ap
peared to be a case-hardened criminal.
Judge Benet then sentenced him to 10
years In the State penitentiary. Those
who were sitting ne:r as the negro
left the dock say he said iht one of his
first victims when he got free would
be the judge
