lug to Influences Which Tend to
Lighten Offences of Grafters.
Chester, Nov. 7.?-The "graft" cases
which have been pending in the
courts ot this state for two years
were called to trial here today. Af?
ter the grotesque verdict of a Rich
land Jury In the Farn urn ease a year
ago When the defendant was acquit?
ted ana later pleaded guilty to almost
the Identical charge, the attorney
general decided to go to trial in some
Other county with the remaining
cases. Cluster COUnty was selected
because the principal in the conspir?
acy charge, Joe It. \Vyl!e, is said to
have gotten the graft money in
Chester as an outcome ol his part
of the alleged conspiracy. Had the
cases been tried here a year ago pub?
lic sentiment doutbless would have
forced a verdict, but there are said to
have been at work here agencies
whose presence can be sensed rather
than explained, and the State, with
all of its mass of evidence and con?
fessions, may have an up-hill tight.
The defendants are John Black,
Jodie If, Uawlinson and H. Lee Solo?
mons. The original indictment named
also Morton A. Goodman, Jno. T.
Earley, Joe R Wylio ami James S.
Farnum. These four will not be tried
at this term.
After the attorney general, Mr.
Lyon, had read the indictments this
morning, A. L. Gaston of the Chester
bar endeavored to get Mr. Lyon to
tell why these four were not under
trial. Mr. Lyon said that was a mat?
ter belonging to him. and in this he
was sustained by the court.
The indictment charges the defend?
ants with having conspired to defraud
the BtatS of South Carolina and with
having taken $13.1.000. which be?
longed to the State of South Carolina.
The presiding judge is Ernest
Moore, of Lancaster, representing
Judge Klugh, who is ill. ,
The attorney general, Mr. Lyon, is
assisted in the prosecution by W. F.
Stevenson and Ii. L. Abney. Solicitor
Henry is ill and is represented by J.
C. MeClure of Chester.
The attorneys for the defendants
are as follows. For Uawlinson, Wes
ton & Aycoek and R. H. Welch, of
Columbia; for John Black, John M.
Wise of Chester and M. P. Howell of
Walterboro and Nelson. Nelson &

legislature and a member of the in?
The hearing of the case promises to
last a w? ek. There were no dilatory
motions today, no questioning the
venue, no plea for former jeopardy
for Black, 'but the rase was entered
upon at once. However, th? defense
has contested every inch ol ground
