The judge stated thai he was giving Rev. Whitman mote than the ordi nary sentence because, occupying the position he did and having enter ed upon ministerial work, he should liave boen above tampering in any way with liquor. We have been un able to learn as yet whether or not Mr Whit.man was able to arrange for the payment of his tine, but lt is supposed that he has already entered upon the service of his sentence in tho Spartanburg jail. Only recently, In a conversation In The Courier of fice, Whitman maintained stoutly that he was absolutely Innocent of \ny offense against the prohibition laws, but evidently there was suffi cient testimony nnd evidence |nd duced at the hearing to convince the Jury and the Judge differently. .-Xo little interest has been man ifested in this and other sections of Oconee over the disappearance of lohn M.
