Our Treatment of the Murderer.
By murderer I mean one who with
malice aforethought-with purpose
takes the life of another. The law,
God's and man's, says life for life in
snch a case. It is an extreme medi?
cine, the severest, but the surest in
th e cure of that dreaded moral disease
affecting the body of unman society.
Some people are so devoted to their
children that they indulge their every
whim because they would not bear
them cry; it shocks their delicate
sensibilities beause of their great fond?
ness. They never punish them for any
misdemeanor, and their chiding is
hashed by the slightest whimper.
Who would say that such parents are
models to follow?
People seem to think that when the
body politic shrinks from executing
t ne law in the administration of jus?
tice where life is demanded for life,
that it shows a healthy, a commenda?
ble condition, while the opposite is
true. We should always shrink from
12 ob violence, from taking life with?
out cause, but when, in the adminis?
tration of affairs simple jnstice re?
quires it, the hand that executes the
law, unerring in Its aim, should be
steady and firm. v
If we were as lax in other matters as
j in this, things would be deplorable
; indeed., We have surely fallen into
a had ' way that is sure to lead-has
iilready led-to gross evil. I do not
pen these lines becanse I have an axe
:o grind, a wrong td avenge, but as
one who loves his race, and is-tryng to
contribute his mite toward its better?
ment as one who rejoices in the tri?
umph of right, the defeat of wrong, I
have undertaken this with the hope
that some abler pen may be moved to
do us a real servie? in. such discussion
as will so enlighten the people's mind
that the evil may be corrected.
It is a fact, a most shameful fact,
that murder-outright murder-goes
unavenged in South Carolina, that the
crime is on the increase, that less and
less value is set upon human life, and
this, not because our laws are not suf?
ficient, not wholesome, but because
men' are imposed upon by misrepre?
sentation and otherwise and instead of
viewing the matter rationally, under
the pressure of appeal to the emotions
they became erratic. LWhy do not such
conditions obtain in the business
world? A prominent lawyer pointed
but that any man of intelligence found
it to his interest to maintain his
credit Why? All this " is right and
proper but when it is a matter of life
things are quit? different. It is a no?
torious fact that the criminal lawyer
is the. man of the hour, who in a few
days or weeks at best coins his thou?
sands on "his reputation to clear and
tum loose on the public avile murder?
er whom God, none so much merciful
as" He, has said, ".Let him die the
death." Every concievable method,
every means possible is resorted to
that justice may be cheated. The
criminal is paraded before the public,
the weeping father and mother, the
children crying or not are trotted out
as silent, but powerful sppeals. The
counsel under a feeling of holy f?)
and righteous (?) indignations by a
process best known to themselves shed
a few briny drops to clinch the argu-'
ruent to show canse why the law
should not be executed. The court
has been wrought up to a white heat
Where are they at? * They went in
there to try a murderer, but he has
been transformed into almost an angel.
Under the hypnotic spell of a slick
tongue, together with the other means
'hinted at, twelve men have been made
to do what cool reason would never
allow. After the deed is done, the
die is cast, they feel obliged to sustain
themselves not in defending murder
but in condemning' not outright the
The gallows is a bad thing but it is j
a good pla;e for murderers. What is
the re.-ult? Pistols and bowies are
greatly in demand even by peaceable
and quiet citizens. Every one feels his
life to be in jeopardy and some good
but nervous and excitable people upon
the slightest sbpw of danger even
where no danger is, draw the ever
ready pistol and two lives are ruined
to say the least. We are responsible
for this state of things and unless we
put a stop to it,, by punishing the
offender, worse is sure to follow.
What of ?t?
Editor The Manning Times:
I noticed in the last issue of The
Farmer the statement that the Hon.
Joel E. Branson as a member of the
5th Battalion. S. C. State reserves
had bene duly decor-ted in Sumter
with a Confederate badge of honor.
These badges are only bestowed upon
Confederate veterans who apply for
them on a printed form in which it
must be stated the command in which
he served and where and when dis?
charged or paroled from the Confeder?
ate army. These questions could only
apply lo a Confederate veteran and
not to tne young boys who when call?
ed int J State service for a few months
at a time to guard prisoners after they
were disarmed and safely rut in a
stockade. These troops were at the
? time called State reserves and were
subject alone to the orders of the
governor of the State and could not
be carried one yard beyond its ber
-der, save with his consent President
Davis under great urgency made this
request of Governor Brown of Georgia
who peremptorily refused. If these
badges are generously distributed to
the boy soldiers of the State service,
tihey could with equal propriety be
given to the sons of veterans and with
much more propriety to the daughters
of the confederacy. I merely rise for
i nformation, and like Tom Watson to
inquire "where am I at?" and to
know what estimate are we as Confed?
erate veterans to place upon these
priceless badges and what can they
typify to us when not confined to us.
I will say to Mr. Branson that I
iso his case as an illustration as it
was conspicuously before the public.

Sile had been iii three weeks of
typhoid dysentery, but was not

family or the attending physicians
until the evening of June the first,
when she began growing weakpr and
continued so until Saturday morn?

all during her illness, she received
the brtst attention that laving hands
and skilful doctors could render.
Drs. Tarrant ?nd Darby, of Magnolia,
were the faithful physician* whoso
readily rendered their services.
In her last hours she was uncon?
scious-only momentarily conscious,
therefore left no farewell message to
the heart-broken family other than
this. A short while before the ead
came, she. was heard to say distinct?

the most consoling thought to her
bereaved family and friends is this:
They n?fed no testimony concerning
her future other than her pure Chris?

and the beautiful floral offerings
showed the esteem and love in which
she was held.
What renders her loss doubly
mournful to the family is- the sad
thought that she follows one of the

Clattering for critical recognition
come ' 1 The Wooden Works of Thomas
Anonymous." Pages of whitewood,
perhaps, and covers of something else.
The poems and philosophies of Thomas
ara literally, if not literarily, drawn
from the wood. Certainly the book
which holds them is most novel and
very interesting among the year's vol?
umes. It is the output of the Back?
woods 'Eindery, Sumter, S. C. Possi?
bly it will continue to be so if the
woods hold out.
Mr. Anonymous has theories con?
cerning the sun, moon, ether and
many other matters. Sometimes his
theories rhyme, sometimes not. lt is
a matter of indifference to him so
that there are no knotholes in his
pages. There are brass rings to hold
his book together, and a brass chain
to hang the rings up by. Listen :
The muse declines her harp to string
when scientist essays to sing. When
lengthy words or prosy fates confuse
the muse she balks and backs. But
Luna bright can strike the lyre and
scientific songs inspire. The moon
revolves and cranky twist transmits
to brain of theorist. And so the
crank, 'when Luna turns, his lessons

THOMAS ANONYMOUS. Price $1.25,

sale by The Backwoods Book Bindery,
Sumter, S. C.
One of the most curious freak book
of recent years with wooden covers
and wooden leaves. The author mod
? estly explains that after he decided to
write some poetry he took to the
I woods, being influenced by a 'desire
I to commune with nature, and it was
] here he found most of the material for
building his work. The verses are
really clever'parodies on well known
poems, as for instance :
"Woodman, spare thyself,
That tree is large and tough,
Though toil thou must for pelf,
Shun work that's hard and rough."
"Ob, woman, in thine hours of work,
No duties thou art wont to shirk
To heed the tales that gossip brings
To lend to scandal swifter wings."

Columbia,, June 22.-It is probable
that the Columbia Chamber of Com?
merce will arrange for putting on the
"Ruth," a boat now running from
Georgetown to Conway, in place of
the Highlander, which was burned a
few days ago. Mr. L. B. Dozier, of
tue boat committee, stated this morn?
ing that all arrangements had been
practically completed for this boat,
and that the subscriptions requested
had come in very rapidly, showing the
faith taken in river navigation.
As soon as it was demonstrated that
there was a tremendous saving in
freight, it became evident that, while
the chamber of commerce was arrang?
ing for the boat as rapidly as possible,
something must be done at once to
move the freight. Consequently the
Ruth was taken temporarily. The
Ruth is a few t)ns lighter than the
Highlander, but in every* way is a
trim boat, and can handle considera-1
The boat line will probably be man- j
aged by Mr. T. D. Love, who had
charge of the Highlander, although
this is not definitely announced yet.
