A LETTEB TO LAUBENS.
See. McKcand, of the Charleston
Chattiber of Commerce, who recently
accompanied the trade excursion of
Charleston merchants and who spent
a short time ii Laurons at that time,
lias written a letter to us concerning
his Impressions of Laurcns. What Mr.
McKeand has to say is a food for
much though! .by the people of this
citv. It Is a well known fact that
Laurens county is a magnificent conn
ty and lite people are thrifty and sub
stantial people, "but a man may starve
to death with money in his pocket."
The* city of 1.aureus does not make
use of her natural opportunities and
wealth. Iler moneyed men do nol in
vest, their wealth In n way that would
tend to Increase tho grow th of the city.
The following Is the letter of Sec.
Charleston, s. c. April 15, 1011.
Editor, Lau ions Advt rl Isen
I have road with much Interest your
comments mi the Charleston Trade
Our party w is very much Impress:
ed with the country surrounding your
city an well as tho city Itself, end that
you have natural advantages and a
magnificent country, goes without say.
lug but a man may starve to death
tvith motley in his pocket, or a ?man
may walk when ho has tars or othoi
methods of travel.
Individual effort is all right In its
p'aoe, and Is commendable, but com
munity effort- the one for all. all for
one--splr!t is what builds a big city.
Herbert Spencer says "The man
who. expending his energies wholly
on private affairs, refuses to take part
in public affairs, pluming himself on
bis wisdom in minding his own busi
ness. Is blind to the fact that his own
business Is made possible only by the
maintenance of healthy business con
I do not know what kind of an or
ganization you have for tho purpose of
elty building in your city, but I do
know that you should hnvo n composite
organization composed of all interest
ed, one on modern lines w ith sufllcient
money to back it to make n success,
that you should havo someone employ
ed who will devote his entire time to
the gootl of the city lie should bo a
good man and should be paid sulll
clent money to make it worth whip
If this organization can bo of any
assistance to you wo would certain
ly appreciate a chance to help you.
I s we believe that wherever we help
;.s we believe that whatever wo help
Charleston and whatever helps Char.
Itston helps the ?Mitire s;tnlc.
Very truly yours,
A. W. McKeand.

Hud u Fulr Trial?Ample Time For
Populur Prejudice to Subside Was
Columbia, April 22.?Hon. Thos. S.
Sease, the solicitor who prosecuted
W. T. Jones, recommended to the gov
ernor that lie do not pardon the weal
thy I'nlon county planter who is un
der a life sentence for the murder of
his wife and is now In the Union coun
ty jail awaiting the final decision of
the supreme court. Governor Mease
said he would not act in the Jones
case until the supreme court decides.
He sent out the papers Saturday for
Judge Memminger's recommendation.
Mr. Sease writes:
"This defendant was not unduly or
hastily convicted. The offense oc
curred In July 190S. and the trial
was held in January. 1009, at least
six months Intervening before the
trial, and giving ample time for pub
lic prejudice, if there were any. to
subside and become normal.
"Judge Hldrick refused ball on the
showing made by Jones. From this
refusal an appeal was taken to the
supreme court. Judge Hydrick was
sustained In refusing bail; then the
trial took place and resulted in a con
viction with a recommendation to

case, refused a motion for a new
trial. The supreme court, on appeui
from the verdict and sentence, sus

From this refusal of Judge (iruber
there Is now pending an appeal to
the supreme court. This is in brief a
history of the ease.
"The petitioner has bad a fair trial

and the jury from the evidence return

case?the evidence was sufficient to
sustain a conviction, and, therefore,
recommend that pardon be not
