Contempt of Court
Asheville, N. C., Jane 29..-Judge
Jeter C. Pritchard of the United Sta?
tes circnit conrt at noon today filed
his opinion in the celebrated case ( of
Josephus Daniels, before him on a
writ of habeas corpus, charged with
contempt of court Mr. Daniels,
who is editor of the Raleigh News
and Observer, had been fined $2,000
for contempt of district Judge Pur
Judge Pritchards opinion will be
recognized as an important legal re?
cord, and is a careful and comprehen?
sive review of the law as applied to
newspaper utterances that mght be
construed as contempt of court The
text of the decision in part is ams fol?
"In re Josephus Daniels for con?
tempt, Pritchard, circuit judge.
"In order to determine whether
the petitioner is entitled to the relief
prayed for in the petition upon which
the writ of habeas corpus was issued,
it is necessary to determine two ques?
"2*. Did the court which imposed
the sentence in this case "have juris?
"21 Does this conrt have jurisdic?
tion td hear and determine this case
ou a writ of habeas corpus?
*?* * * The force of public opinion
in this country in favor of the free?
dom of the press has restrained the
free exercise of the power to punish
this class of contempts, and in many
jurisdictions statutes have been enac?
ted depriving the court of the power
to punish them. It was taken from
the federal courts by the act of con?
gress of ISSI, which act deprives those
courts of the common law power to
protect by this process their suitors,
witnesses, officers* nd themselevs
against the libel of the press, though
published and circulated pending the
trail of a cause therein. * * *
"That newspapers sometimes en?
gage in unwarranted criticism of the
courts cannot be denied. In some in?
stances they construed the liberty of
the press as a license to authorize
them to engase in wholesale abuse of
the court, but these instances are
rare and do not warrant a departure
from the well settled principles of the
law as declared by congress end con?
strued by the courts. If judges char?
ged with the administration of the
law are not to be criticised on account
of their officiai conduct the liberty of
the press is abridged and the rights of
"There may be instances where the
publication of editorials or other mat?
ter in a newspaper would bring the au?
thor within the limitations of the
statute. For instance, if a newspaper
should publish an article concerning
a trial which was being considered by
a jury, and should send a copy of the
paper containing such article to the
jury or a member thereof, during the
progress of tbe trial, for the purpose
of influencing them in their decision,
it would present a question whether
such conduct would not be misbe?
havior in the presence of tbe court,
or so near thereto as to obstruct the
administration of justice. * * *
"It appears that that tbe distin?
guished judge who adudged the peti?
tioner to be in contempt of court ex?
ceeded tbe anthorty granted in the
act of 1831, and that the conrt was
without jurisdiction. Such being the
case the judgment of the court is
avoid and therefore a nullity.
"In view of the foregoing the court
finds that the petitioner is unlawfully
restrained of his liberty and it is
therefore considered and ordered by
the court that tbe said Josephus
Daniels be discharged from tbe cus

States and that he go hence without

Indianapolis, Ind., June 30.-The
Prohibition party in national conven?
tion today nominated Silas C. Swal?
low of Pennsylania for president and
Geo. W. Carrol* of Texas for vice

without argument after a long dead?
lock in the resolutions committee. It

the broadest platform ever placed be?
fore the people by the party. In ad?
dition to the planks on the liquor
question it declares the party to be in
favor of international arbitration, a

OB&ral qualifications, uniform laws for
the country and dependencies, popular
election of senators, civil service ex?
tension and the initiative and refer?
endum. The trust question was recog?
nized by a demand for a rigid applica?
tion of the principles of justice to all
organizations of capital and labor.
A reform of divorce laws is demanded
and polygamy denounced.

by sending to John G. Woolley a tele?

Special to Tbe State.
Scranton, June 30, via Sumter.
Three months ago Cairo Williams, a
negro of Lake City, killed Thurston
McGee of the same place. A mistrial
took place today in the court at King
stree. About eight men, armed and
disguised, boarded and searched the
local passenger train passing Scranton
at 7.07 o'clock and found the prisoner.
They suspected he was being taken to

cattle peu at the north end of the de?

men, armed and disguised, boarded
the sleeping car. The conductor
shouted from the door that there was
nobody in there and the mob searched
the whole train and took the negro
from the sheriff in the day coach.
They then put the negro in a buggy
and with fiendish shouts made for the

Charleston, June 30.-Cairo Wil?
liams, the negro who killed Thurston
O. McGee, white, at Scrantori^in
Williamsburg county last February,
was taken from the Atlantic Coast
Line train at Scranton this evening
and lynched. Williams narrowly es?
caped lynching immediately after the
killing and was spirited off to the pen -
itent'.arv in Columbia for safekeeping
and the mob was greatly enraged
thereat. Last Monday Williams was
Drought from Columbia to Kingstree,
the county seat, for trial. The result
j was e. mistrial and the sheriff thought
it safe to send him back to Colum?
bia for safekeeping.
As the train approached Scranton,
a mob of lynchers with blackened
j faces and wearing masks, flagged it
down with a red flag and searched the
train for the negro, to the great tef
ror ol" the passengers. Finally they
found Williams and ordered the
sherill's deputies to deliver him up.
This was refused and a scuffle ensued
in wfc ich the deputies were much
bruised. The mob then took the ne?
gro away, saying that he would be
dead in five minutes, and that was his
fate, although the exact particulars
are not available.
Outrage Near Boykins.
Caradon, June 30.-Sheriff Trant
ham, in response to a telephone mes?
sage I'rom the Boykin neighborhood,
went there and arrested Aaron Wil?
liams, a nergo, charged with an at?
tempt; to outrage a Mrs. Langley, who
formerly resided in Lancaster. It was
said that lynching was feared. The
attempt is alleged to have been made
five days ago. but the negro continued
his work on Mrs. Langley's farm un?
molested up to 12 o'clock to day, and
was going back to work this evening,
bnt was brought to Camden and lock?
ed in jail. The sheriff has not the
slightest fear of lynching.
A Gorilla Negro.
There was an aggravated case of at?
tempted assault Thursday afternoon
near iUolumbia, and after the capture
of the negro brute, he in some way
escaped and disappeared. An old white
woman, living about a mile beyond
the park, while driving home about
dark, was pulled out of the wagon by
a mulatto and warned not to make a
sound. Despite his threats, however,
she screamed for help, and Mr. E.
G. Zoble, whose residence is only a
short distance away, hearing her
cries, ran up the road. As soon as the
negro saw him he ran. Mr. Zoble,
after stopping long enough to see if
the woman was hurt, hurried on after
the negro, and, after a run of some
distar.ee, in which several others join?
ed, tte negro was caught and turned
over to the officer of the*village. The
calaboose of Eau Clare was not strong
enough to hold him, however, and,
instead of having the negro brought
on to the city, he was allowed to es?

As no injury to the vessels of the

MACON WILL APPEAL
Judge Speer's Decision to be
Taken to Higher Conrt.
Macon, June 30.-The city of Macon
will appeal from the opinion rendered
by Judge Emory Speer, of the United
States Court in the habeas corpus pro?
ceedings in the Jemmison case which
was decided yesterday,.
A resolution was unanimously adopt?
ed last night authorizing City Attor?
ney Wimberly to proceed to make an
appeal and to procure all legal assis?
A letter was read before the council
from City Attorney Wimberly recom?
mending this action, and declaring
that if the present decision stands it
will work inestimable damage to the
city of Macon.
The following is the attorney's letter :
"Macon, Ga., June 28, 1904.
"Hon Bridges Smith, Mayor, the
Mayor and Council of the city of
"Sirs: Judge Emory Speer render?
ed his opinion this morning in the
case of Henry Jammison against E. A.
Wimbush, a petition for writ of habe?
as corpus, to be discharged from con?
finement under a sentence of the Re?
"I have not been able to procure
the original copy of the opinion, but
was pr?sent when the same was de?
"The ruling in this case is based
principally upon the opinion that the
charter provision authorizing the re?
corder to sentence a violator of the mu?
nicipal laws to the chain gang is abso?
lutely void. If this opinion is the
law, the every person upon the county
chain gang sent up by the Recorder's
Court ought to be immediately dis?
charged and other means for the pun?
ishment of violators of municipal law
must be devised.
"I am informed that there are at
present about one hundred persons
working upon the chain gang under
sentence cf the Recorder's Court.
"In order to preserve order and pro?
tect the peace in your city about this
number must be constantly imprison?
ed. If set at liberty any violations of
the law would have no terrors for
them, life would become dangerous and
property not be safe.
"To provide a suitable place for the
detention and imprisonment of this
number of malefactors other than now
provided by law would be a burden up?
on the city.
*1 The suggestion that there should
be a trial by jury would result in a
terrible hardship upon the poorer class?
es, who are violators of municipal
laws. In addition to fines, the costs
of prosecution would probably be in
flictd upon them with a proportionate
increase of service or confinemnt.
"Inasmuch as the Recorder's Court
tries and disposes of probably twenty
times as many cases as are tried and
disposed of in the Federal, Superior
and City Courts of Macon, to provide
for accusation and trial by jury with
the complicated system incident to
court with jury trials would necessi?
tate probably four courts at least, each
of which would be as expansive as the
City Court of Macon.
"You will at once see that this
would bankrupt the city.
" While the Recorder's Court of the
city of Macon has the power to inflict
pecuniary fines and imprisonment on
tte chain gang for as long a time as
six months, this discretion^ in my
opinion is a wise oue. The infliction
of a six months' penalty for a petty
violation of an ordinance such as
walking on the grass or throwing trash
upon the streets might probably be
a gross abuse of authority, yet
where a drunken man beats women
and children and commits an unjusti?
fiable assault within the city limits,
the full limit of six months would be
"In my opinion the case is one of
such importance and the results so far
reaching that it would be a very wise
tb?ig to appeal this case.
