fore Magistrate. Ruling By Sease.
Spartaniburg, July -24.-Judge T. S.
Sease, in sessions court here this
morning, decided that it is unlawful
for a magistrate to issue a search war
rant on an affidavit unless that afildavit
Is subscribed to personally -before the
magistrate. The question came up un
der a motinon in the case of W. w.
'Rhame, being tried for running a
The rural police went to Rhiame's
swimming park near the city early one
Sunnday 'mornfing with a search war
rant to make a search for whiskey,
,which it was believed was being stored
and sold there. The oflicer did not at
that time 'find any whiskey but they
found three cotiples occupying rooms,
against whom they made out cases of
disorderly conduct, and against W. A'.
Rhame, the pr-oplrietor, they made out
a case of running a disorderly house
and a nuisance.
When the state had pit in its testi
mony, Deputy Sheriff J. W. 'Becknall
was .put uip, by the defense, who te-sti
fled that he signed the warrant and
sent it to MagIstiate L. K. Jennings;
Upon receiving it the magistrate tele
phoned Mr. Becknall, who stated over
the phone that lie had sgned the war
rant and swore to its coiftents.
.ludge Sease says that a search war-I
rant is too importait a thing to be
handled in any .such way and it should
be stopped. lie accordillgly ruled out
al1l testimony wyhich had 'been secured
on the search warrant.
There were two cases of violation
of the prohibition law in which the de
fendants entered leas of guilty. Zillie

GHICAGO MERCHANTS' MONEY DOES
NOT PAVE LAURENS STREETS
Why we siould patronize home trade:
First. Hlomti1e Innu fa ctirers, home laborers, home pro
fessional meni and( home merchants an not exist without
Second. The more Iloney there is in our city the l'ss tihe
rate of taxes.
Third. Money sent to Chieago, New York and other
cities illreases the weithi i there with a corresponding decrease
Fourth. Shoo'ls. ehurches, streets and all city im
provements here aIre not iluide mnd iever r'ill be miade by
the citizens of Chicago.
Fifth. Out-of-town goods help to build i up and improve
the phice where they are bought, aid cripple the facorties
here, beui Use we should tlbuy as much as we an.Il in Lau'ens

Jeventl. Pride in our vity should foster iutual helli

Eighth. Disiitelgrat ion would follow the eomplete abanl

Washington, .luly 21.-The board of
general omeers ap!ointedl o 1111der
take the most wholesale "plucking"
.o) ever initiated among the regular
army organization will enter at once
upon the (lties to which it has belen
assigned. The first meeting !will be
held tomorrow with Ilaj. (en. Joseph
T. Dickman. retired, presiding as
president. It was to have tbegun )op
erations towards the elimination or
demotion of some 2,500 officers today,
'hut was held Ip by the absence of
Alembers of the board, which is rep
resentative of all arms of the service,
were 'greatly concerned in their pre
liminary discussions today over the
probable effect upon the morale of'the
army of the sIselinded sentence now
hanging over the head of practically
every ofileer in the service with the
exception of (eneral Pershing and a
baker's dozen' of second lieutenants
now in ih lie armly.
Congress, in directing that. the ofib
eers' corps be, reduced by . anuary I
to 12,000, (i(] not include the general
officers tif the army in fixing the num
ber to be retained In each grade. The
!war department, in prepar ing Instrue
tions for the "plucking board" did in
dlude the general oflicers in so far as
retirement of any of the major or
ibrigadier generals for physical dis
ability would create vacancies and per
mit the ap:poi ntment of colonels to
general oillcer rang, reducing the num
her of sirpius coloniels to that extent.
Theier a p'ieared also to be much eon
cern among board members as to the
view army officers mig t ta)<e of the
board': action ih recommending any
olier for honorable dis'dharge. Pre
li minary investigation indieates that
'probably more than 1,700 offlcerts now
on tile rolls must be "separated" from
the active service In this way. The
board, It is understood, will seek by
every means to Impress upon the army
and upon the general public the view
that discharge under these conditlons
in no way reflects upon the character
of the service a discharged omcer has
rendet'ed and that In a maJority of
the cases at least, the army would
mich prefer to retain the.e officers'
Board members are understood to
fcel that there is little prospect of find
ing many omcers now on the rolls who
merit discharge. The nrmy recently
cleaned house in itis regard on Ifs
own motion and the suggestionl of Gon
eral Pershing to congress that.the
strength of the corps 'be fixed at 13,500
was based tron. the efforts then in
progress to get' rid of unsuitable of
flei's in the way congress pieviously
had -2rovided through efhiciency ratings
and the "Class B" ratings.
