JUDGE PREiSLEY AND THE
We pul'li"h to-day what Judge
Pressiy is reported to have said in
his charge to the grand jury last
week at Yorkville in regard to the
lynching of the five negroes there,
and what he himself has to say of
what he said. We do not see any
thing in what he said to bring forth
such criticism of him as the News
and Courier seems fit to indulge in.
He states facts. It might have been r
better for Judge Pressley not to have
stated facts- he could have kept t
silent on the subject. It was v,rong t
in those maskzed men to go to the
jail in Yorkville and take the five
negroes out and hang them without
due process of law, even though it
was no more than they deserved. e
It would have been better to let F
the law take its course. an let the 0
execution have been made by clue pro
cess of law. We cannot say. though,
that the hanging of these negroes by
the lynchers was a greater crime than
that of which they were guilty, in the
killing of little innocent Goode be
cause he happened to see them steal
ing cotton from his father's field.
And to attempt to investigate the
matter and put the lynchers on trial
would be, as Judge Pressley says.
enacting very much of a farce. The .
grand jury deprecates the custom of
lynching. So do we. But when it
is sanctioned by the public sentiment
of the community in which it takes
place what are you going to do
about it. Try the lynchers and bring
them to justice. Yes, but they are
to be tried by their p)ers of the vicin
age, and these same p)eop)le are the
very- . ones among whom this public ~
sentiment exists that demanded the ~
lynching, and who probably were en
gaged in it, and what does your trial i
amount to more than an expensive c
The people are superi('r to the ~
law, because the enforcement of the
law is in the hands of the juries, a
who are the people, and a law~that is I
not enforced is a dead letter, andwill C
remain such unless the people demand t
it enforced. Lynching should be con
demnned and we do condemn it Some ~
one says make an example of the lynch- ii
ers by bringing them to justice and c
punishing them for violation of law. ~
That is impossible and only serves to r
demonstrate the impotency of the ~
law unless it is sustained by a
a p)ublic sentiment that demands 'I
it be enforced. The people should S
be taught in some way to let s
the law take its course and a
healthfnl respect for the majesty of a
the law inculcated in the minds of a
our peolple. How this is best to be
done we hardly know what to say. 1
The case against the Yorkville negroes t,
was a very aggravated one. A poor
innocent boy is beat to death with rocks c
because he happened to see these ne- I
groes stealing cotton from his father's t
field. rhe grief of the poor father
of the murdered boy culminates, a
day or two before the lynching. in
flis becoming a raving maniae- and g
heing sent to the asylum, and a once (
happy home being made miserable
all for no fault of the murdered boy.
It was a terrible, mnost awful and n
heartrending crime, a
These negroes had conifessed. and i
there was no mistaking they were
the guilty ones, and there is little
doubt they would have been con-t
viet and executed by the law, if fj
let alone. s
Men in every walk of life, who P
may attempt such crimes as these
n?egroes were guilty of, should remom
her that swift and condign punish- a
mnent awaits them. But let all good F
good citizens of the State make up I
their minds to let this punishment s'
be measured out by the courts. a

If the only motive for lynching thtes
ten was to avenge the blood of th
ourdered boy, that passion, which ha
tumbered since the morning of Decen
er 15th, was aroused by the crazed cot
ition -of the father, who was conveye

JUDGE 'RES'LJ1 STICKS TO WHAT HE PU
e SAID. m<
a To the Editor if the Ners and Courier: m
The supposed fault of my late charge da
to the grand Jury of York is greater
than has been reported. When I said to R"
them that Courts of justice were power- sh
less to repress or puni-l the horrible to
crime of lynching, that charge was not T
limited to York, or to South Carolina, B
but plainly and expressly included the
whole United States. There would be ta
fhope for the country, I said, if in only CC
-two or three States that Clime was~ un- el
n punished, bitt now I could find no rem- $
y edy in the weakness of the Courts. Let
e not the Pharisees of any section, "thank
n God that they are not as other men are, t
il or even as this publican." That wor- bE
o ship is hypocrisy uint il they can call to A
mind one solitary case in w hich a band ne
n of lynchiers has~ been punilbed by any th
h Court in any section of the wvhole coun- i
e Is it wrong to proclaim aid publi,h,
s and repeat an.d again (epeat, this is- be
t grace to our civilization, when only that se:
course can save the country ? Listen to h
a a tale of simple, tad truth: e
.s When Moore was lynched att Spartan
Sburg, eight years ago, I earnestly re
.s minded the grand jury of the oaths they
. had jtbt taken ; warned them that they fo
swould violate their oaths if they failed mn
d to searchm out and bring to trial the per
y sons who killed Moore. All thatt f couldH
y do was done to make them sensible of
r danger to the State if such crimnes were -
e not speedily punished. And yet, de-- de
a spite all my warnings, that grand jury Bt
not only refused to pursue the lynchiers, L
e but also justified the crime in t,heir final
e presentment. That rebuff did not si- b
d lence me. Ever since, until the ac
iknowledged failure of the Edgefield ce
Sprosecutions. 1 did not cease to charge, sol
i urge and warn tihe grand juries to bring bu
Iynchers to trial. Now, I am unwilling
any longer to tuse the expen4ive ma- o,
-chinery of the Court to enact a farce.
-The only remedy is to rouse the peo
-pie to a proper sense of their danger or;
and their disgrace. My warnings thus Cia
a far have been poured into deaf ears, and M
begin to 50ound1 ike an idle tale even to ter
0 ifi pulpit, pre'ss and all gooi people wonild M
1 persistitly unite to make lynehing
3 hatefat. then the Courts could punish Sta
,and crush it out. Until that be done we tes
can only play Caesandra--warn in vain. eu:
F Let me say for the grandl jury of York nn
. that they addled to their final present
a ment much earnest condemnation of the St;
- lynchers. That "little crumb of cam- ret
a fort" is more than I ever before got from tha

an infant six nonths old, was attacke< with
a virulent. malignant skin di-ca-c. All ordi
nary remedies luiting, we c:lkd our family
physician, who attempted to cure it; but it
spread n ith almost incredible rapidity, until
the lower portion of the little fellow's person
from the middle of his back down to his
Knees, was one solid, ra_h. ugly, painful.
blotched and maliciou?. We had no rest at
night. no peace by day. Finally, we were a/i
vised to try the CeTICcl.A REMEDIEs. The ef
feet was simply marvellous. In three or four
weeks a complete cure was wrought, leaving
the iittle fellow's p<irson as white and healthy
as though he had never b--en attacked. In
my opinion, your valuable remedies saved his
life, and to-day he is a strong, healthy child.
