His Honor Judge Thos. S. Sease presi
ig. Solicitor P. H. Stoll and Steno;
rapher Wood were at their respecti'
posts. This is Judge Sease's first vis
to Manning, and he has already made
favorable imprsson by-the manner:
which he dischages business. H
charge to the Grand Jury was clear am
earnest, without any attempt to play
poular sentiment so frequent the
dybut instead he endeavored to ii
pres upon the minds of the jurors th
they as well as himself had a duty
He referred to the reports over tf
State that the criminal law was rnot b
ing strictly enforced, and asked wi
such a report. He stated that it was n
the Solicitor's fault, nor the Judge
fault, nor the petit jury's in every cas
but that of witness who go upon ti
stand and willfully prejure themselv
in order to save a friend from punis
met, or convict an enemy whom th
wished to see punished. He related:
instance in another county-of this Sta
where a white man was charged wi
the murder of a gegro, and the _Soli<
tr had all the jurors put on their vc
dire and asked the direct questi<
whether they would go by the law a:
the evidence and convict a white ma
for the killing of a negro if the law at
evidence so pointed and convinced. b
that the entire panel answered that, th
would not. He stated that this was
terrible state of affairs in our State.
referring to the negroes, he stated th
the negro is a burden to the white ma
-that it is a burden on the white m:
o keep the negro straight That tl
white men should convict him whenI
has committed crime, but should a)
ive hird is rights in court when he h
bee w.aged, and he stated in terr
most emphatic that when the white i
failed to do this, they became oppre:
ors of the race over which they we
superiors. He stated that the negro
here to stay. and that the white i
should keep him straight.
The Judge also congratulated Clare
don county upon the fact that at ti
term of court there was not a sins
mrder case on the docket for trial. i
stated that in oar State last year the
were about 350 or 360 killings in Sou
Carolina, nearly one for every day in s
year, and said that the only .way to p.
vent the killing of people is for the g
jes to convict those guilty. He said tb
the certainty of punishment was as inu
a dererence' to crime as anything el
and that if the juries would convict.t
commissions of crime wouldd be lesse
ed, not abolished, :'Mugh in his opini
if every criminal were convicted, the
would still, no doubt, be some cru
