SIMS AND WESTON
GET FEDERAL PLUMS?
Named to be Sent in by President \V 11 -
sou ?or MurshalHhip mid District
Washington, Sept. 20.?By the se
lection of James L. S?iib, of Orango
burg for United States marshal, and
Francis H. Weston, or Columbia, for
the United States attorney for the
district or South Carolina, the Admin
istration has ended a long contest be
tween Senators 'I'll I man and Smith tor
the two principal Federal olllcers In
Messrs, Sims and Weston were
agreed upon late today by President
Wilson and Attorney General McRey
nolds and the two nomlnatlonH are ex
pected to go to the Senate Monday.
In choosing of Senator's Smith's can
didate lor district attorney ami Sena
tor Tillman's man for marshal, the Ad
ministration feels that it has satis
factorily solved the problem present
ed by the contest between the two
South Carolina Senators.
While Senator Tlllman urged the
claims of Mr. Sims for marshal, he
was also anxious to have .1. William
Thurmond, Esq., of Edgcflcld, appoint
ed dls'.rlct attorney. Senator Smith
concentrated Iiis offorts in behalf of
Mr. Weston for the district attorney
ship and, it appeals, remained passive
as regards thennarslialshlp. Mr. Sims
is recognized as a supporter of both
Senators Tlllman and Smith.
Merely Choice of Men.
Department of Justice officials had
given favorable reports on the quali
fications of both aspirants for district
attorney and it serins that the mat
tor resolved itself into merely a choice
It is said, however, that one of the
reasons for the selection of .Mr. Wes
ton was to show indirectly that the
Administration would favor the re
election of Senator Smith, who Koes
before the. voters <>r South Carolina
in UlO primary next August.
Mr. James 1.. Sims is the editor of
the Times and Democrat and has re
sided at Orangeburg for over thirty
years. Ho lias always been a consist
ent .sup.toiler of Senator Tlllman and
was one of the first editors in the State
to espouse the cause of Woodrow Wil
son in the race for tbo (Democratic
Presidential nomination. Mr. Sims is
about CO years of age.
Tho Hon. Francis H. Weston Is a
prominent attorney of Columbia. He
has long been active in South Caro
lina politics and is at present Senator
from Itlchland county.
May he Continued Monday.
Attorney Gonoral McReynolds this
afternoon transmitted to the White
House the recommendation Of Francis
If. Weston, of Columbia, to be district
attorney of South Carolina to succeed
Fi nest F. Cochran and .lames L. Sims,
of Orangeburg, to bo United states
marshal to succeed J. Duncan Adams.
Tho resignation of Cochran and Adams
have been in hand for sonn? weeks
ami will take effect upon the con
firmation of their successors. It is
believed that the President will send
the nomination of Messrs Weston and
Sims to the Senate Monady, as he held
a conference on tho subject with the
Attorney General yesterday at the
White House and is presumed to have
had reached an agreement with Mr.
McReynolds as to what would be done.
Mr. Weston, who will be nominated
for the district attornoyship, was en
dorsed by Senator Fd. Smith. Senator
Tlllman endorsed J. Win. Thurmond, of
Fdgcfleld, who, at one time, seemed
likely to receive the nomination, it is
understood that the two Senators
agreed at the outset that in the event
of the President's naming either Wes
ton or Thurmond, neither Senator'
would oppose confirmation. As to Mr.
Sims Senator Tlllman at first endors
ed him. but recently withdrew his en
dorsement. Senator Smith never en
dorsed Sims, but agreed not to oppose
ills confirmation. This being the case
tho recommendation of Sims by the
Attorney General has no official Sen-i
atorlal backing at this time.

Two arguments were made this

minutes for the defense. !!< was fol
lowed by Solicitor George Bell Tim
merman who spoke for forty-five min
utes. All of the arguments were strong
presentations of each side of the case.
Judge Wilson delivered a clear and
concise charge and. in the opinion of
those who heard it, was absolutely fair
and '.inpartial. The court clearly out
lined the law governing every phase
of the ease, laying great stress upon
the point of a man protecting himself
in his own home.
Immediately after the verdict the de
fendant, with his wife, child and other
near relative.,, left the court room,
Young (Junter was visibly affected and
showed his appreciation of the jury's;

place on August li. at the saw mill of

witnesses were sworn on both sides

be concluded before tomorrow.
There are still three other murder
cases on the docket, and the 'Court
will continue throughout next week.
