As the time fast approaches for the
E. State Sunday School Couvention, Feb
,y ruary 25-27, I desire to remind superil
tendent,s, teachers and scholars of the
Sunday Schools of South Carolina, of
the imporltnce of this body, and of the
fact that the success of the convention
will be greatly promnoted by the pres
once of the entire international party,
viz: Prof. Ii. M. Hamill, 1). 1)., Inter
nationil Field Secretary; Mrs. H. M,
11lIamill, the Primary Superintendent,
of Illinois; Mr. Marion Lawrence, of
Toledo, Ohlo, the International General
s, Secretary; Prof. E. 0. Excell, of Chi
m cago, the composer of Sunday School
songs and Music Di:-etor, and Rev. B
. . Spillman, of North Carolina. This
r distinguished party will visit this
State, under the direction of the Inter
national Executive Committee. The
State Sunday School Coto.:"intion has
been called in order to be included in
the it. nerary of the great Transconti
nental Tour undertaken in behalf of
the Sunday Schools, which will pass
c from t he Atlantic to the Pacific Coast.
Normal work will be given, instruc
tion by blackboard exercises will be
n imparted, and addresses on live Sun
* day School subjects will be made. Lest
Y we forget, it may be well to say at this
juncture that the uniform system of
te lessons studied by nearly all Evangeli
p cal religious denominations, is the pro
r. duct of the same body that is sending
out these workers, and thus our rela
tionship is shown to be very intimate,
ii and should be cordial.
n W1e believe that for the invssiment
of time required to attend all of the
sessions, there will be ample repay
ment, in increase of grace. joy and
fervor to the individual, and full reim
bursement to aiiy school which will
pay the expenses of Its delegates. We
n feel that every wide awake and con
) eclentious teacher and worker in the
Sabbath Schools will receive inspira
tion for greater service and devotion to
the cause The program is very fat
tractive, and a copy will be mailed to
any person making request for same.
If those who count it an honor to
Lt sa"ve the Master, either as superint
e tendent, teacher or scholar, will but

ment such as has never' yet beeni felt
3. throughout South Carolina. it is a
d labor for the Master in mutual egfort to

The work is more than State, it is cou

e It Is International. WVe aim for fuller
Christian fellowship, for better meth
ode of teaching and greater awakening
to the value of deeper conPecration,

E fter tile usual swearing of wittiesses
to bills of indiet,ment, prepared by the
Solicitor. Judge Klugh Charged the
g' Ind jury fully its to the gen'eral and
speclal duties with the discharge of
which they will be entrusted during
the present year. Ile prefaced hiis ic
marks by expressing his pleasure be
eaus16e of the fact that all 0ho grand and
pe't jurors who had beenl drawn for
'ho term had answered to their
lim.eS. This fact, argued well, the
court remaked, as weil as the fIthe'
fact that the attendance of people who
have no business in the court was small.
It indicated that the jurors were ready
and willing to do thelr duty faithfully,
and the law will be administered in
proportion as the jurors do perforu
their dut,y faithfully and to the extent
r,hat tile law is faithfully adminlisterod
the rights of the peoplo are preserved
and the lives, libet,y and property of
the citizens are made sceurc.
Tihe purpose of t,ie assembling of the
grand jury is not the mere perfunct,ory
performance of routine duties nor' tihe
drawing of the pay therefor, bit the
perfornalnca of a substantial duty in
the enforcement of the law and the up
holding of its majesty to the protection
of public rights and interests.
The duties of the grand jury may be
divided into two classes: that of attend
ing tile sittings of the court of Gene- al
Sessions and passing upon the matters
submitted to them in and by that court
and those of a general nature. 'QIc
former duties were fully explained.
In addition to these more or less rou
tine matters: It is within the province
of tile grand jury to i1vestigate ili
matt,ers affecting the public welfare;
and to see that the institutions for the
stppression of crime, the Conli Itement
f c'iminals, tile distribution of ptiblbc
oharity, the dissemi nat ion of education,
the securing of transportation thtrough
out the county are properly conducted
and yielding the best reasonable results
to which the public is ent,itled. The

Tihe State sipreie court yester(lay
rendered a decision inl one of the import
ant Neal cases, atl the attoritey general
l: wvon a noteworthy victory. There is
atother cas,! p -1ding however, just as
interesting. The opittion is a naianimous
one, being written by Associate Justice
Inl October, IS99, W. A. Neal, who had
been superi ite ldvilt of the State pen.
itenftiary fron November, I 92 until
March, IS9, was inldicted, as such su.
perititendent, for collectinig by vittue
of his oflice, and failing to turn over to
his successor, 1). J. Grillith, St.5 The
case caine u1p before the loIon. W. C.
lenet, presidilig jidge (h ri lig the April
term of [t9N for Richliiad county, a11i1 a
iotiotn was inade by 1'. I. Nelson, .s.'q.,
defe .dait's coliusel, to <1uash the indict
imeit uipon the groltd that the silu
so received 'as lor convict hire,
which the superinitendenit was not charged
with receiving or disbursing by virtue of
his onlice. The inotiown was strenuously
opposed )y Attorney Ceneral G. Duntcan
Bellinger, but was granted by his I Holor
upoll tle grounds stated inl the motion.
'hIeretiponl the attorney getteral appealed
to the stipreme couirt aid tle case was
heard (Itring Ite Novemnber termi, md
the followiwg opiniol has jtst been filed:
"The defendaitt was indicted under
section 304 of the Criminal Code which
containis the follo\-wing provision: It
shall be the dity of every slierifl, judge
of probate, clerk of the court of' Comwi1iinon
pleas, county treasurer, or aiy other
State or county oflicer entrusted with
fiti'ds by virtue of his office, iipon retiring
frown office, to turn over to his siccessor
all moneys received by Iitu as slich
dlicer, and remainling inl his hawids, as
such oflicer, within thirty days fron the
tiic when his successor slhall have enter
ed upon the duties of his office,' etc.
"The fifth execption was abawidoned.
' It will tiot be necessary to consider
the exceptions seriatim as the appellant's
-ttorneys corl celly state that the practical
question presented by them is: 'Was
Neal. at the said dates, as superintendenI
of the State peiiitentiary, and by virtue
of his oflice as such, chiarged by law with
the receipt of and entrusted with Iimoneys
arising from convit. labor?'
"The oflice of superinteideit of the
peiniteitiary toes not exist at coiwlinon
law. We liusi, therefore, look to the
laws of our State to ascertain his powers,
duties and liabilities.
"By section 551 of the crnimnial code it
is made the duty of the superinteident of
the penitentiary 't o receive anid pay out
all moneys granted by the general assen
bly, or tiu any other way - --ruing for the
support of the prison am carrying oii the
"Secionl 3 of the act of 1899, page 151,
to which reference is made inl tihe order
of his honor the presidiig judge, con
tainls the following provision, to wit:
'That. the hoard of 1irectors of the State
penIitetitiary are hereby directed to pay
the treasuwry of the State at the end oif the
State at the end of each thiwee imonths or
within five day s thweieafter all amounts

to paty the atiitwits ap)propiated by) thc
geiieral assemblly in the samie inann wer as

"Thle amnounits received fromi thme hire
of convicts were not to be paid inito the
treasury iintil thme 'necessary expenses of
saidI institutioni and all other dlisburse
imenlt allowed( by laws' were dleduictedl
"The moneys received fromw the hire c.f

be cownstrued as inwtendinwg that mioneys
received fromw the hire of convicts are to
lie regardled as accruinwg for the support
oif the prisuon and carrying on the work.
"'t'nder the provision of the statuite
iiakiing it the (duty of the sup)erinitend(enit
of the penitentiary to receive all moneys

arising fromn thme hire of conwvicts b)y virtue
of his office as sinperiniteindenit.
