The Savannah News thinks that the
pistol will be less in evidence in the
future in this State, and it is certainly
to be hoped that the opinion is well
founded. If it is once established that
persons charged with murder are not to
be bailed, that fact will undoubtedly
deter many men who carry pistols from
committing homicide, and the carrying
of them will gradually go out of use.
The Tillman case as the News says,
has created much discussion, and no
doubt will continue to until its final
conclusion, and out of this discussion
will come a healthier public sentiment
in regard to the use of deadly weapons
in the settlemant of personal difliculties.
Although ( hief Justice Pope's decision
was only rendered last week its effect
has been felt by this time all over the
State. It created a profound impres
sion among legislators and the feeling
thus started is bound to permeate all
classes. The chief justice did a greater
thing than he probably thought in mak
ing the decision he did for it very ma
terially strengthened a sentiment just
forming and comparatively weak. Ilad
he done otherwise this change in public
opinion would have been destroyed in
its inception. As the News says again
the reform will not take place all at
once, but the leaven is working and the
anti-pistol sentiment will be intensified
and strengthened as long as juuges do
their duty without fear or favr. ---(%O
So far as we have been able to ob
serve, Chief 'Justice Pope, on his posi
tion in refusing to grant Tillman bail,
has reeoived the unanimous endorse
ment of the pI'ess of South Carolina. Mr.
Justice Pope is a man learned in the
law, and the people of the -tate may
rest in the assurance that he will do
his whole duty as he sees it, and with
out fear or favor. And it is because
we believe he will do his duty without
fear or favor. holding the scales of jus
tice with an even hand, that we desire
to take issue wit h the Columbia Record,
in its statement qpioted above, or rather
it is an infterence. that ('Ihie' .1ustice

because Tillman was "charged with
murder.'' Ilard will he the laws and
sad1 will be the times when a person
cannot secue bail simply beeause he is
"charged with mur Ier'' or auny other
crime. From the time when the l ng
lish people wrung the Magna Charta
from those who clhimed a divine right
to rule, they have helId the privilege of
the writ of habeas corpus as their privi

I)eelaration of Rights in our own State

rebellion or invasion. the public safety
may uilire it "and, l'urit her, that "al
persons shall, Iefore conviction, Ie

for capital offenses when the proof is
evident or the presumption great."
To have the privilege of the writ. of
habeas (01)us suspended, even in cases
where only those "charged with mur

many times greater than that of carry

Radium, the New Mineral Which Has
Created a Sensation in the Scientific
Radium, the new mineral recently
discovered, can now be bought for
$900,oo a pound, the price having
been reduced from one million.
Radium is a scientific sensation.
It is said to be the most important
discovery in the last generation and
epochal in the history of science.
Briefly described, it is a powder, a
combination of metals, which gives
off a light almost as strong as the
light of the sun. It is far ahead of
Roentgen rays, the scientific sensa
tion of six years ago, as these' rays
are ahead of twilight. When the
so-called X-rays scientists actually
photographed the bones of living
persons, laymen weie awed. This
accomplishment would be the merest
child's play fo, radium. With it
photographs can be taken through
three feet of iron or a foot of lead.
Its value to surgery, to anedical
science, and physical science can
not even be approximated. To
modern scientific research it is what
the discovery of the telescope was to
astronomv. One wee bit of the
metal is in New York It was

\Vith its rays, which escaped
through many thick wrappers, the
New \ork man took a photograph
in a closed and almost hermetically
sealed trunk. In a dark room it
glows like phosphorous Carried
in one's pocket. it causes a blister
on the body, exactlN like sunburn
The strength of the pure metal is
almost be\ ond belief. Prof. Curie
of Paris, the discoverer, says lie

a room with a kilo of pure radium,
