* IGHAM CASE MAY BE
THROWN OUT COURT
Florence, June. 27.-Edmund -D.
Bigham may be thrown out of the
Supreme Court of the State on his
latest attempt to sa ; himself, from
the electril chair fox the murder of
" his brother, L. Smiley, in a very short
time, according to the announcement
yesterday morning of L. M. Gasque,
solicitor of the Twelfth circuit. He
cently, t ie Supreme Court adopted
a rule whereby it refuses to review
a question of fact, as di tinguished
from a question of law an judiciary
discretion, once the lower court has
passed on the facts in the pr mises.
Under this rule, the solicitor may
move, after ten days' notice to the at
torney on the other side of the case
to dismiss the motion for a new trial
and get an answer without waiting
for the tedious , processes of the
"I intend to avail the State of
this rule," Mr. Gasque said here
this morning. "If , the supreme
Court follows the rule it has laid
down, as there is no reason of
think it would not do, the Bigham
-case will not hang in the supreme
Court a year longer."
Only last week, A. L. King, tat
torney for Bigham, filed formal
notice of intention to appeal. He
has forty days in which to perfect his
appeal and because of the volume of
the record, he is hardly expected to
complete his appeal much before Jhe
limit. Then Mr. Gasque will require
ten days in which to perfect his no-k
tice to dismiss the appeal. This will
-carry the case beyond the date of July
14, which is set for the execution.
That Bigham will have to be resen
tenced, unless -he wins his appeal, is

~WHILE WOUNDED GROAN
Herrin, Ill., June 27.-Herrin, -its
men and women and its babes in arms
tonight held a carnival across the
street from the hospital where the
wounded strikebreakers of Thursday's
massacre lay recovering-one or two
dying their wounds.
Laughter and jokes floated across
the summer night; paper caps adorned
the heads of the gay throng, and last
week's "incident was forgotten in the
gladness of social intercourse.
The occasion was the installment of
a local chapter of an international
club. It began with a parade and a
band blaring dance music from a
truck. The mayor was there, and the
chief of police and all the local digni

TO THE VOTERS OF
Having announced my candidacy for
the House of Representative, it is
natural that you will want to know
something about myself and what I
stand for. I was born and reared on
the farm, and have done manual labor
all my life. I am forty-three years
old. I have lived in this State all my
life save six months in Florida, ten
years i, Clarendon County.
I stand for good roads, better com
mon schools, well paid Christian men
and women as teachers, compulsory
education. I have always voted dry
on all liouor issues and stand for a
strict enforcement of our prohibition
laws as are now on our statute books
as well as a strict enforcement of all
laws of our County and State.
I strongly advocate economy in the
expr nditure of our tax payer's money,
and I amp strongly of the opinion that
if our tax money were wisely spent,
and if each employee of our govern
ment were required to out in ten
hours labor per day at a salary .along
with the average man as to class and
nualifications with our business men
and women; and not an over plus of
employees in any department of our
government, county or state, then
with such a system in operation, I am
satisfied that a great reduction in
taxes can be brought about, and not
hurt our colleges and schools one iota.
Since the great world's war tens
of thousands of men and women have
been thrown out of emnployment. and
those who have held their positions
have had their salaries "slashed to
the core." Why not play the game
fair with our government employees
end meet tout equal rights to all and
special privileges to none?.
With the iibove outlined principles,
together with many other measures
alon constructive lines. I respectfully
solicit your supnort. If elected you
may depend on finding me on the job
eluring the legislative session, work
ing for what I know will have the an
proval of the uiviority of the people
of my county. Thanking you fr
c'onsidieration, I aml,
Yours very truly.
