Quite a number of people in Sum
ter are of the opinion that George W.
Murray is better off in Chicago than
he would be in the penitentiary, and
that South Carolina and Sumter
County are better off with Murray a
free man in Illinois than with him
here as a convict or an ex-convict.
In consequence of this sentiment a
paper opposing Murray's extradition,
which was circulated Monday, was
signed by a large number of Sumter
business men and other citizens.
