court makes report
I in boyd-brock case
Assistant Adjutant General Exonerated
Charge of Criminal Intent hat
"Careless ami Extravagant."
Columbia, Juno it. -Col. \V. T.
Brock, assistant adjutant general ol
South Carolina, and candidate for
the position of adjutant general in
the approaching primary. Is absolved
Of lite ?b?rge of swating (he state's
money with criminal intent, but the
court of Inquiry which made Its re.
port at I 1 o'clock this evening, buds
thai there were some things for
which Col. Crock was to blame and
some things which a lack of system
in the otlice of the adjutant and in
spector general made possible.
The court says in its report:
"li the charge is intended to im
ply criminal intent, the court holds
and linds tin.I the evidence fails to
disclose any criminal intent on the
part of Col. Brock, ',.;;i that he was
iinioii.mutely Ignorut of the rospon
slliblt.v of the'high trust reposed in
him and careless and extravagant in
his administration <f that trust."
The s?. stem Wrong.
Condemning the system of account
ing in VOgUC in conneclio with the
turning in of expense accounts the
"This system of accounting the court
condemns in no uncertain terms for
the reason that whether so intended
or not it is rendering false accounts;
it affords no correct information to
the officer whose duty it is to scruti
nize the accounts; it offers no protec
tion to the person whose accounts are
to be scrutinized at a time possibly
when he is not in position to explain,
and i: such system is allowed to obtain
in the State government it will as
surely lead to petit thievery as the
night follows the day. This court, how
ever, does not charge Col. Brock with
le t it thievery."
The court exonerated Col. Crock from
the so-called political Charges. In this
connection the court says, in part :
"We lind, as a matter of fact, that
so far as he learned the situation.
Colonel Brock reported It correctly
to Gen. Boyd, and this court is of the
opinion that there is no foundation in
tact tor Hie charges made against Col.
Brock by General Boyd in respect to
any misrepresentation. We also lind,
as a matter of fact, there is no fact up
on which to base a charge against Cid.
Crock, that he has proved a traitor to
General Boyd. On the contrary this
court is of oplon from the testimony
that at all times Col. Brock has been
entirely loyal to his superior and that
the charges of the adjutant general to
the contrary are entirely groundless."
History of fnse.
Several weeks ago Adjt. Gen. Boyd
announced that be would not offer
for reelection. Following this an
nouncement W. T. Brock, the assist
nnl adjutant general, announced bis
intention of entering the race for ad
For several days there was noth
ing said concerning the situation in
the adjutant general's ofllce. Gen.
Boyd went to Charleston and Ornge
burg. When be returned he was very
bitter toward Col. Brock and issued a
statement to the press in which be
charged thai his Assistant !>:>.'! acted
as a political traitor.
When the flrsi statement was I sued
Col. Brock was making the annual in
spection of the state militia, lie Im
mediately directed a letter to Gov.
Ansel, asking that he appoint a court
of Inquiry to investigate the charges
of Adjt. Gen, Boyd. QOV, Ansel took
the matter under advisement and did
not appoint the court at that time.
While Gov, Ansel was considering
the matter of appointing a court of
Inquiry, Adjt. Hen. Boyd went to him
with a statement as to the Itemized
expense account of Col. Brock.
Cater Ge i. Bo/d issued a statement,
in which ho Charged Col. Brook with
wasting the money of the State while
making the annual inspections of the
Rtnte militia during the past four
years. Several other charges were
made in the letter. Ceti. Boyd in an
unofficial way called upon Gov. An
sel to appoint a court of Injulry to
Investigate the expense accounts of
Col. Brock. Again Gov. Ansel took
this charge under advisement in an
In the meantime Col. Brock com.
pleted the Inspections of the State
militia and returned to Columbia. Be
fore Gen. Boyd made public his charg
es, Col. Brock went to (i<>v. Ansel and
asked If a paper had not been filed with
him by Gen. Boyd. Gov. Ansel explain
ed the charges of Gen. Boyd as to the
expense nCCOUUt. To Gov. Ansel Col.
Crock gave a satisfactory explanation.
When the charge of wnistlng the
State's money was made public by
Gen. Boyd, Col. Brock Went to Gov.
Ansel and insb-t? ,1 Upon a thorough
investigation of his entire record as
assistant adjutant and inspector gen
eral of the State.
Gov. Ansel, alter Iking the matter
under advist inent for some time, ap
pointed the court of Inquiry,
At the hearing before the court of
Inquiry, which was appointed to get
the facts in the case, many matters
of interest were developed. The most
important matter brought out was the
lax business system of the otlice ot
