A LITTLE RACKET
About John J. Jones who is Being
Given Too Many Privilege* In
Columbia, Oct. 16.?John J.
JoneB, the Branchvllle lawyer who
was sentenced to 10 years and one
month In the State Penitentiary for
killing Abe Pearlstlne, is on the
ohalngang at Orangeburg, It devel
ops through correspondence passing
between Governor Jlleasc and Su
pervisor Hoyden of Orangeburg
writing to the Orangeburg supervl
*< r to the effect that it has been re
ported to him that Jones hud been al
lowed to go off on a three-days' deer
The latter otllclal Is quoted as de
nying any knowledge of .Jones' ac
tions or presence on the gang. Then
the Governor wrote him, submitting
a copy of the contract which the
Orangeburg supervisor and oilicials
made with the penitentiary and Su
perintendent Griffth last June when
they hired Jones from the Stute oili
cials and pat him to work on tho
gang. The Governor warns the su
pervisor about the alledgcd freedom
which is being accorded to Jones,
saying, "I would advise you immedi
ately to read over that contract and
carry out its provisions if you do not
want to be placed in a position to re
ceive a great deal of trouble, I am
surprised at your saying you know
nothing about it and then Unding the
original contract here with your name
The case of Jones is well known
throughout the State. There had
been bad blood, it was charged, be- ?
tween him and Pearlstine, who was
a imerchant in Branchvllle, and in
the postolllce there Jones shot him
dead. Convicted of manslaughter, he
was sentenced to 10 years and one
month in the State Penitentiary, the
sentence being affirmed by the Su
premo Court on an appeal by Jones
from the lower court's verdict. Ef
forts of Jones to secure clemency
failed and be was supposed to be in
the penitentiary serving sentence un
til the fact of his being on the
Orangeburg gang bobbed up with the
publication of the correspondence
passing between the Governor and
the Orangoburg supervisor over the
alledgcd freedom accorded to Jones.

stand as wel as being represented in
the parade of floats. The tomato club
girls especially had a creditable ex
hibit in the booth set apart for them,
myriads of cans and bottles of fruits
and vegetables being shown. One girl
showed about thirty-five varieties of
canned fruits and vegetables. Con
spicuous on the side of the booth was
a placard showing that six merchants
of Laurens buy annually over two
thousand dollars worth of canned
goods that could be raised and canned
In this county. This booth was highly
complimented. .Miss Wii ixni dray,
county supervisor, was in direct
charge of It. Through some misun
derstanding the corn club exhibits
were never properly collected and ar
ranged. It was at cue time thought
that the exhibit would be held In the
court house, but later it developed i
that it was to be made at the fair
grounds. In the confusion that fol
lowed, exhibits were carried to both
places and some of it never reached j
the proper booth It might bo said in!

the north side of the grand stand.
These were sent to Secretary Cower
by Congressman Johnson from Wash

Mr. Johnson from the lepartmcnt of

for poultry fanciers, besides making a
striking impression upon any who hap

In no small measure was the suc
cess of the fair and general good feel
