Would be Useful.
Columbia, .May 7.?A movement that

ludiciary of a large number of those
Interested in the meting out of justice
nd of th< Bar, to some extent, Is that
-inking to the employment of assis
tant, solicitors to aid in the securing
oL evtdenco In criminal cases. In u
mcusure the entire detail work of the
fieeurlng of evidence could thus be
shifted and good results obtained, it
Is thought. In recent years in this
U 'e there hnvo been many Import
itid criminal cases, where the solici
ts have been at a loss as to how
to handle the work of the Court room
and at the same time gather evidence
,i other cases.
'n many instances detectives have
? a employed. This method was fol
uv/ed by Govornor Ansel in a number
tnportnnl cases of alleged murder.
A lawyer visiting here today nd
I'llllCCd tb<? following ideas along this
There ought to be an assistant to
a h of the circuit solicitors in this
"Such a man would be of valuable
service to the solicitor in the prose
cution of the various cases, and es
l>o inlly in murder cases, the assist

H i icitor could direct in his work, and
?i doubt could he s cured at a small
salary. He could handle the dlsd?.
meanor cases, which now have to be
attended to by the solicitor. Much
valuable time, which jthe solicitor has
to take with these small cases, could
j then be given to the larger ones,
i "The strongest reason why there
j should be an assistant is, that very
; often the State in the trial of felonies
is unable to produce the proper evi
dence, which, no doubt, they could ob
tain if there was an assistant, who
visited the scene and the community
in which the crime had been commit
ted and obtain witnesses who are un
willing to testify at the trial and very
often flee to keep from giving materi
al facts as to the crime. The attorneys
for the defence make it their business;
j from the time a case is placed in their
hands to get every one who knows
j anything at all about the offense, I
[whether an eye-witness or not. Why
should not the State get to work at
once? Then too. very often a party who
would be of valuable assistance to
the solicitor in the prosecution of the
case is a witness for the other side.
, and is kept from testifying at all. Very
, frequently the testimony at the coro
ner's Inquest is roughly taken, wit
nesses are poorly examined and few
at the best. On this account the State
loses valuable information as to the
guilt of tlie party, and the testimony
given on the day of the trial is at va
, rlance with that taken by the coroner.
"The assistant solicitor could at
tend the Inquest and examine the wit
nesses on behalf of the state, ami be
gin at once to work up testimony for
the prosecution and very often pro
cure aflldavits which would be of much
? value and which afterwards are not
able to be obtained, the person having
sympathized with the defendant or
; having been approached by his coun
sel. It is an easy matter lor the State
to obtain many important facts on the
eve of a killing, as the sentiment is

* THE COTTON CONDITION. *
New Orleans, May 7.?The cotton
market this week will continue to be
much of a weather affair, and in many
important sections of the belt the crop
will be at a critical point. Should
more rain fall and further delay plant
ing it is probable that a considerable
area will be withdrawn from cotton
and planted In other crops. Rains this
week would probably have an imme
diate and marked bullish effect on
the market. The dispute bet ween the
i two factions in the market from now
Oil until the government's figures on
acreage are known will be over the
amount of land replanted, the amount
of land thrown out of cotton through
fear of the boll weevil and the amount
of land taken from other crops and
put into cotton.
It is known that replanting is nec
essary in every state in th'J belt, but
the bears claim that the area has been
'greatly exaggerated. In Mississippi
land Arkansas: those planters who ox
i perlence unfavorable conditions this
week will probably prefer to go into
other crops because a late planted
cotton crop is peculiarly liable to
damage from the boll weevil. Anl
reports indicating any such shifting
of crops will be considered of impor
tance around the ring.
The Hears' Claims,
It has been Claimed by th ! bears
that the recent stormy weather did
much damage to crops other than
cotton, and that considerable land will
be taken of otln-r crops and put under
cotton. Hcports from Manchester
