The Felder Case.
The case against Col. Thomas
B. Felder, the attorney who
was employed during Gov. An
Sel's administration by the dis
Pensary winding-up commis
sion, has created widespread
interest and notoriety.
As will be remembered, he
was Indicted by the winding-up
commission appointed. by Gov.
Blease for attempting to bribe
H. H. Evans, the chairman of
the dispensary board of control
In 1905. An account of the
charges and the result of the
case will be.found on the first
page of the Sentinel.
There are some features of
this case which are worth con
sideration by the public. The
first striking feature is that it is
alleged that Felder attempted
to bribe Evans, a state officer,
in 1905. No intimation was
ever made of suoh Ian offer until
1911. Evans, the state officer,
andtht-one attempted to be
bibed, kept the secret in his
own bosoi until through the
efforts of Felder the meshes of
the law had begun to wind
around Evans. Then there were
charges of corruption against
Blease. in connection with the
Ald state dispensary while he
was senator. The charges be
to look ugly, and doubtless
caised thQsewen much annoy
ance.7T was then that the
prosecution of Felder followed.
The thing is weak on its face.
After the lapse of five years,
and long after the state dispen
sary had been abolished, a pros
ecution was brought against a
man for- attempting to bribe a
s4ate official. Why did not
