At Meeting of Solleltor .with rntd

Pliced Up to People. 31ust Report
Violations of Law.
At a meeting called by Solicitor
Blackwell and held lin the Court Ilouse
.Monday morning, ways and neans of
Combatting !aw violations were dIs
cussed. rTe meeting was attended by
most of the law olicers of (lhe county,
magistraters, members of the grand
jury, Mayor labb and several of the
Jity !pojliceIten. ,Thei -eonseislus of
opilioni was that iaturens County is
not suffering as mu1ch as other counll
ties from the crime wave said to be
-prevalent. in the siate, credit being
givon by some present to the rural po
live system as well as the vigilance of
individual rural polieeniwi and other
peace o(llcerI of the coility.
It was gelierally admitld that. there
has been an inc rease of crile inl the
conilty. This was laced to several
Caui ses. Clerk of Vourt C. A. I'ower.
who was present, ascribed part of it
to a general breaklowli of Ile ,.ociaI
fabric ille to the war. Mayor lIlabb
gave vagrancy and its associate evil,
pistol carrying. as the principal ob
stacle to law enforcement with which
he had to deal. These two evils were
generally adumitted to be at. the calse
of llost criminiltality ill the county al
present. Others spoke of ithe wliskey
evil, the lprincipal trouble from this
soiret being due to lax enforeetit of
the law inl ieighboIrtig eonttini. of
SGreenville, Greeniwood and N.v.wrry.
Police ollicers reported that whiskey
was being broight from these conl ii
ties and distributed in I .atturlls ocuni
ty, though there were ev idenices of a
few stills iti Ithis ottnty which were
being located. Solicitor llackweli said
that this had been taketi uji with the
Governor and ho had promised relief
from that quarter. luch discussion
centered arotnd the problem of coti
coaled weapons, but the problei re
mahied unsolved. White tmetn Who
loaned negroes pistols and who Inter
vened in their behalf after arrest were
given credit for much lawlessness
frotii this soutree. h'lie sent1tient pre
valled that sentenices should bx 1 le more
severe In the future for carrying jIvs
tols, it also b'einlg polited out that to
loan a pistol to another was inlawful.
The remlledy for comnbatting the pre
valent. lawlessness was generally ad
mitted to be lonlild in the co-operation
of the peop1e. Those who lkntow of law

o0t1fits are already at. work on this
road and rapid progress is being made.
.lr. Ilughes states that. he filids a very
good grade of top-soil along the new
road and thinks that the county is
ratIecr fortunate inl this respect I hough
Ie has be helter soil (1ewlse re.

In linan,1 cases, it had een Ireoited to
