DER CASE CONTINUED.
Judge Pressley Thinks it would be Improper fcr
Em to Try the Case, and Gives His
During the morning session of the
court on Tuesday Judge Pressley an
nounced that all parties interested in
the Jones-Johnstonc case should be iii
the court promptly at three o'clock to
determine if he should try the case. At
3 o'clock the court room was crowded,
evincing the interest manifested in this
cause. We give below the remarks of
the judge and the attorneys interested
in this case. Solicitor Duncan repre
sents the State and Y. J. Pope, 0. L.
Schumpeit and J. Y. Culbreath repre
sent the defendant.
Judge Pressley said: "It is very well
known that it will be to we a very un
pleasant matter to try the case pending
before the court. If that were all I
would not shrink from the duty; but my
circumstances are such that I really
doubt whether I am not within the cou
stitutional disabilities-at all events, so
nearly so as to make it entirely improper
for me, in my opinion, to try the case.
To begin with, the father of the deceased t
and I came to the bar together nearly a
fifty years ago and our relations from
that time until now have been of the
most intimate character. My relations
to his family have been also of the same t
intimate nature. So then, it would be
utterly idle for me to pretend that I do
not feel the deepest sympathy with him
and with his noble wife. t
On the other side some of the defen- t
dant's family have been the friends of t
my life-of my whole life. His uncle
and other relatives, three several timest, b
became the chief sureties on my bonds b
for $100,000 each when I was a:-sitant
United States Treasurer. About that t
time there was an inter-marriage in the t
family, and his other and near relatives
are also my relatives, and that feeling tl
of relationship has a!ways been recog
nized. I feel that he recognized it C
when I was first a candidate for judge. ri
We had not seen each other for years it
before that. I had not seen him, and he "
had not seen me; and yet :e supported C(
me most warmly and I have no reason a
to believe that he did it for any other al
reason than that he recognized the fam
ily relationship between us. At the e:
second term he nominated me and made b+
a very flattering speech in my favor. tt
To be sure, we had become acquainted I
then, but I am confident that in the first I
regard it was family rel itionship that fr
caused him to give me his support. The 01
members of his family in Charleston are
very near relatives to me, and though I ti
am not within the letter of the constitu. w
tional prohibition, L.am satisfied that my it
feelings are such as to bring me within tc
I therefore think it improper for inc to lc
try this case, but, as I do not desire to d
be the sole judge in the matter I am ri
now ready to hear what either side may 0]
have to say on the subject." tl:
Col. Y. J. Eope, senior counsel for the
defense, rose, and in an impressive man- Ia
ncr said that no member of the bar couid th
have sat and listened and remained in- di
sensible to the utterances of the Court. tr
He felt satisfied that there was niot even
a member of the community who could ti
have been insensible to the utterancesb
that have so dignified the bench mo-day, v(
and he would state that there was not a wv
member of the bar or of the community d
wvho did not feel that the court was not b
in thme slightest degree disqualified .from W
bearing the case and holding the scales
of justice impartially. He said that it
was an occasion of great solemnity to the
whole community and that the issue was
one which the people were anxious i
should be met at the fIrst moment, fur ti
it was disorganizing the business of the w
community and delaying the business of re
the court. Although there might be a
feeling of sympathy in his Honor's heart al
for the misfortunes of the families of the .T
deceased and of th~e accused, yet he did ti'
not think that that sympathy was of such in
a nature as would disturb the equilibrium k<
of the mind of the Court. Righit would
conquer all difficulties; he appeared an. ti
the part of the defeinldant a,s his life-long f
frienid, an4 from his desire to promote pl
the interests of the county he must rc
earnestly ask the Court to sit and dis.. ha
pose of the case; because eventually it as
must be disposed of. Justice mtast- be 0
done to the defendant and sooner the.
ustice was done th'e better. In conclu, r~
sion be said:; "I implore your Honor to se
sit here and dispose of thIs business at b
this term of the court." 1
The Court: "The qu;estion with me sI
simply is, that of the propriety or impro- ir
priety in doing so in view of the Con- ri

The Court: "Let the Solicitor in wvhat ~
he shall have to say. apply himnsclf to h
the questioni of the' imiiropriety of the g
mattLr and to the danger to wvhich I c<
would subject my own reputation." b
Solicitor Duncan: "Section (I of Art lele bi
4 of the Constitutyn provides tha't i.no,
idge shall p)res'de on' tihe trial oif any is
cause in the yent of which he may be tI

The Court: "I would state that Mr.
rohnstoUe's cousin married my wife's
Mr. Schumpert, of counsel for the de
ense said that he could but repeat the
act that the defense rno:t urgently
esired that the case should go on
nd even after all the statements that
ad been made. The defendant had
ery high rights in this court, and :1 his
ehalf he would speak. The defendant
as entitled under the laws of this State
nd of all civilized countries to a speedy
-ial, and it was that trial which he now
rged most earnestly. It was only fair
aat after this thing had gone abroad all
ver the land, the defendant should have
chance to vindicate himself. Even
nder the strict letter of the constitu
on, where all the parties consented,
re State of South Carolina should waive
nything like the spirit of technical ob
etion. "What we demand," said he,
is that this man shall have the oppor
mnity of vindicating his name in the
.ce of the world."
Mr. Culbreath, of counsel for the de
nse, regretted the position in wich
1o defense was placed. He thought)
nit the public interests demanded a
ial. Mr. Johnstone, the defendant,
as a biwyer at the bar and the de
:ased had relatives also members of the
ar. As a consequence he was of the
uinion that the sooner such a case as
is was tried the better would it be for
te administration of justice generally.
e had not examined the authorities on
te subject, but he knew as a matter of
et that certain Judges of the Supreme
ourt had heard cases involving the
hts of parties related to them. But,
must be admitted, that no objection
as made at the time of such trials. In
inclusion he said: "We are very
ixious for a trial and will be much die
>pointed if4we do not get one."
The Court : "I am grateful for the
:pressions of the attorneys in this case,
it, whatever people may think, I know
at I am not free from the infirmities of
iman nature, I do not think there is a
an on the face of the earti who is free
am them, and that is my deliberate
inion after a life-long observation.
"The defendant desires that Ishall try
is case.' The Solicitor intimates that it
Duld be improper for me to do so. Now
is clear that if it were possible for me
have a leaning in this case the State
uld have a right to assume that that
aning would be in favor of the defen
nt, and the defendant would have the

The wild phantoms and shrieking
arles of a worthless humbug can make
money by imposing upon the credulity
and ignorance of an honest public, and
the supply of this species of work seems
more than an adequat.e demand. The
enunciation of facts-facts that have
stood crucial tests-facts proven by
brain force and tangible evidence, should
satisfy all laudable enterprises ; but the k
execrable practice of teachIng false ideas
and doctrines for self-aggrandizement is
truly reprehensIble and should be f
scorned by all classes.
When one house tells you that Iodide of
Potash is a poison simply- because their
oppone'ths use it, and because they are~
pandering- to your ignorance, as they -
suppose, you should ioook upon all such
as arrant frauds anId their remedies as
unworthy public confidecnce, and If those
who make su~ch, assertions do not know
better1 they are a set of unenviable ig
