In the course of his sermon at the First Methodist church Sunday .morn ing Rer. W. T. Haggard, the pastor, declared his emphatic opposition to and condemnation of the practice of officers of the law in handcuffing white and black prisoners together. Dr. Haggard was preaching on Judas betrayal of the Savior and speaking of his sympathy for all the unfortu nate and the criminal he said that only a few days ago he had seen at the station In Columbia an officer with a white man and a black man hand cuffed together. "And," declared the preacher, "I want to here and now register my most emphatic condemnation of the practice of linking the white and the black criminal together. It Is enough to have the shame and humiliation of crime fastened to a man without the further humiliation of placing him on the same plane with the other race. It should be our mission to lift up and not tear down. There Is no reason for heaping Indignities upon the un fortunate prisoner that we would not place upon him If he were free." The remarks of Dr. Haggard were greeted with several nods of approval and an occasional amen from the congregation.
