been one of the great and fundamen

courts should be open to all. Then,
if the courts are to be open, why
should the proceedings be kept in
the dark Iet him who is ashamed
to have his name appear in print
connected with some disgraceful
crime be also ashamed to have it ap

charged with the same offense."
The Industrial News of Greens
boro comments on the above as fol
lows: "So far as court records are con
cerned, we think that the publicity
attendant uinm the conviction for
any offense acts more strongly in the
majority of cases than the imposition
of a small fine towards making men
obey the law."
This is undoubtedly true, and
while it is not a newspaper's busi
ness to "make men obey the law."
it is its business to give the public
all the information to which it is en
titled, and it is unquestionably enti
tled to know everything that trans
pires in all the public courts. The
Ansonian is riht and should stand
by itself and the public, even if some
persons who commit a crime and
want a back door settlement do ob

state, that so far as we have ever

Mrs. Carrie Nation, a world char

Salisbury and twice during the time
she was hero she made public ad
dresses in lurid castigation of mak
ers, sellers, consumers and sympa
thizers with whiskey, tobacco and
kindred narcotics and soporifices.
During the morning Mrs. Nation
strolled the streets with reporters
and gave her impressions of Salis

"and I can see that you have plenty
of poverty, degradation and suffering
in your midst You have plenty of

Judge Living was the first wit
ness for the defence. He said he was
told by a relative that when hi.
daughter returned from the drive U
the home of a friend, where slit? was
stopping, she was unconscious and a
physician was summoned. As soon
as he heard this the girl's mothei
went after her and brought her home
Judge Loving then told his daughter
what he had heard and asked for an
explanation. She said she went driv
ing with Kstes against her will; that
he shipped at his home and got a
bottle of liquor; that he offered her a
drink and she took it, whereupon
she became very dizzy; that in an
isolated spot Kstes forced her and
that she lost consciousness and did
not recover until she found herself
in bed that night at the home of a
friend. The witness said that aftei
hearing this story no power could
have restrained him from killing
Kstes; that he got his gun, drove to
where Kstes was at work and shot
him dead without waiting for an ex
On cross-examination Loving ad
mitted that he had been a drinking
man himself, that he was at one time
separated from his wife on account
of his drinking; that he had suffered
from delirium tremens, that he had
taken a liquor cure but had been on
sprees since, which had impaired his
health and his mind, but that he had
drunk no whiskey for two months
prior to the killing.
Dr. Tunstall, who saw Ixiving the
day he killed Estes, just before and
just after the killing, said from his
general appearance and the fact that
Lwing did not speak to him (they
were well acquainted) he thought
Loving was insane, and that Lving
had frequently been in bad condition
mentally from the effects of drink.
The doctor admitted that he was not
an insanity expert. Dr. Melvin tes
tified as to the effects of drink on the
Miss Loving, the victim of the al
leged assault, was the next witness.
In tears she told in detail the story
of her ride with Estes, of his giving
her a drink from a bottle; that she
became dizzy; when he attempted to
assault her she resisted as long as
she could, but lost consciousness.
She told practically the same story
as related by her father. Under cross
examination the witness admitted
that she had taken a drink at Kstes'
store before starting on the drive.
She was asted if she had not taken
a drink at the store at Easter, but on
objection this question was tempo

was landed at Osceola last Monday
morning by Messrs. J. II. and W. II.

well known citizen and merchant of
that place. Every body readily
agreed that it was the largest fresh
water fish they had ever seen. It
was a C.erman carp and weighed ISJ
The monster fish was caught in a
fall trap in Twelve Mile creek just
below the depot at Osceola. Indeed
old time fishermen were more or less
doubtful that it could have been
caught by other means. Certainly
it could not have been landed w ith
ordinary hook and tickle, and many
were of the opinion that in its natu
ral element it possessed sufficient
strength to have torn its way through
a common seine or net.
It was brought to Waxhaw and
sold to P. T. Way for two dollars.
It was then placed in a large tub of
ice water and kept on exhibition for
two or three hours in front of the
W'axhaw Drug Company's store,
where it attracted a great deal of at
tention and called forth a great vari
ety of remarks and comments.

"Dy some, aged parents are

We often see these persons treat
