JUDGE PREiSLEY AND THE YORKVILLE LYNCHING. 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 t 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 farce. 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 a 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' c; be measured out by the courts. a o1 n FAR. I:R (OTE:MPORARY.

Vhat Judge Pressley Said to th UGrand Jur!. C'or. Neu-s aaid Courier. ToRKVIL.LE, Apr il 9.-The Court( ~encral Sessions closed yesterdar ev< ing, the contingent work of the tern aving been considerably reduced b be summary interference of Judg synch, who, interposing his strong art a Tuesday morning, took from the ja ve pr isoners and ruthlessly put themt eath by hanging. Of those lynched, P'rindley Thomnpso tade a confession in the jail on the 13t fDecemiber, implicating Bailey Dowdli >an Roberts and Mose Lipscomb--thre ther victims of the lynchers--as partit > the murder, and the coroner's inques ointed to these as the guilty ones hi re the confession was made. The ple >r hanging Giles Good was that he we otoriously a bad man and a possible a< mplice or accessory before the fact, member of a band whose object wt bbery, and murder if necessary. Giki ~as a mulatto, of about middle-age, an ad. the reputation of being smart, sI nd cunning. The mother of Prin dle hompson attributes the fate of h( >n to the teaching of Giles, who sli lys had greater control over her so tan she had. 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 the Lunatic Asylumi on Monday. Immediately upon thes convening< oturt on Tuesday morning Soliciter M< ~ondd called to Judge Pressley's atter on the fact of the lynching, and sus ested that the Court could give sue rders in the premises as it might deer roper. Addressing the grand jury on this sus1 estion of the solicitor, Judge Pressle: eprecated the lawless practice of mec tking the law into their own hands an ealing summarily' with accused persons hich practice has obtained a foothol, at only in South Carolina but in near: .1 the Southern and Western States ec did not know to what this cours Light yet lead, nor did lie know a rem ly to apply for its correction. If th ractice were contined to one county o a single State, public opinion mnigh own it down, but the practice is wide >rcad and does not seem to meet: Loper rebuke by public opinion. These prisoners had been ordered t, olumbia jail for safety, and that the; Light be permitted to have a fair trial ud such ther would have obtainedl or the act of lyne inig them, he said have seen nothing giving the least rea mi. True, now and then, in capitai tses there are mnistrials and acquitta! ;ainst the popular sentiment; but i: Ie majority of such eaves ju,tice is adi inistered. and I have no doubt in th resent instance, had these prisoner ten permitted to go to trial, justice aun te majesty of the law would haive bee: npiy vindicated. It is useless for me to recommend t an'any cenurs' of action. The first cas this kind, vocurring in Spartanbur ounty a few Iears ago, was ignored b; te grand jury of that county, who rc Lsed to take any action in the matter ) far as this State is concerned, th ractice seemts to have commenced wit tat ease, and, increasing, has becomu eneral. And in view of the more re ant and notable ease in Edgefield here the Gulbreath lynebers have no ecn brought to trial after nearly tw ears of effort by the whole power of th tate, it would seem useless to matke an iggestions or recommendations on th resent occasion. Such acta, however, are to be exceet igly regretted. Good citizens, wh, 'oil motrwise scen an unlawful ac :eem to be le1 into there by a ap:cies of r insanity. Bat no matter how guilt": a man may be, the hanging of him with out due authority of law is crinil. Those committing thet deed not d know when they put an innocent person n to death. fa h SUt:h conduct e iml only result i.i pro- te: dueing a reign of terror.

T!he or- a d ganization was no doubt intended by its op d originators for good. but operating onlt- sa >r side the pale of the law, it brought up 1, on the country a reign of terror. If this s- course of lyneh law is prsisted in, twenty-live years henee we -.i1l have no c .t such thing as civil goverinent. pl The men just lynched were kept in a Columbia not il the excitcement produced th by their crime was supposed to have ce y sub=ided.

As th d before remarked, in view of the Edge- lai field case, 1 deem it useless to put the county to the expense of an investiga tion, and think the Judge who would do g so would be a(-ting as if in pursuit of a at k will-o'-the-wisp, though I would instruct re ? you to inquire into the matter and make ati L_ special report on the convening of Court no e to-morrow inoil,iug, as to whether or not the oflicers of the county are to blame for its ocentrrnce. t In their presentment the grand jury th recte the facts of the lynching and close $2 s this branch of their subject as follows : no "We feel convinced that the Sheriff did in e his whole duty in the matter and that . no blame can attach to him. The grand 15 jury deplore the occurrence, especially to S as Court was inl session and the prison- il ers would have been speedily brought to be a justice in a legal manner. We take this d opportunity to express our condemna- as tionl of the growing practice of lynch- . e . ,, it. ing.' 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 ,try. 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 --myself. m 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 r a gra nd jury. b t Very respectially yours, - B. C. PRciSsLEY, 16 t ~Judge of First Circtuit. ti ASTONISHING SUCCESS.
