CLAIM JUSTICE INTERFERED
WITH BY LADIES' PRESENCE

----------o----------
Attorneys In Teal Case Make
Motion for Appeal on Cer-
tain Grounds.

----------o----------
TEAL SENTENCED BY
JUDGE THIS MORNING.

----------o----------
3 Years, With 16 Months Sus-
pended on Provisions, Given
Prof. Teal—Claim Trial Was
Unfair, it is Reported.

----------o----------
That the course of justice was in-
terfered with by the presence in the
court room of several well known and
prominent ladies of the city and that
other agencies were used to make
public sentiment favor the girl in the
case, will it is understood from a re-
liable source, be one of the points
made by the attorneys for the de-
fense to the Prof. W. Archie Teal
case who today made a potion to ap-
peal the case.

Teal was found guilty last night on
the charge of seduction of a young
lady of the Travelers Rest section
and was sentenced today by Judge
Mendel L. Smith to 3 years, with 18
months suspended provided the de-
fendant pays to the mother for the
support of the child the sum of $100
on the first of each January for six
years and then $160 on the first of
each January till the child is fifteen
years of age.

Immediately after the Hartsville
school teacher was sentenced, his at-
torneys made the motion for appeal
and the case will go to the supreme
court. Temporary cash bond in the
sum of $1,500 has been arranged till
the bond can be fixed.

Prof. Teal is a school teacher at
Hartsville but was formerly teacher
of Ebenezer school at Travelers Rest.
It was while there that he is alleged
to have seduced the daughter of a
prominent farmer under a promise of
marriage. The defendant did not
take the stand during the trial. His
attorneys made a desperate and able
fight for a directed verdict but Judge
Smith declined to grant it.

Ladies Present.

During the trial of the case seven
prominent ladies of the city, who are
well known in social circles, were in
the court room. According to the
statement of one of the ladies they
were present for the purpose of show-
ing sympathy for the young lady in
this case and for making the exami-
nation by the lawyers less harsh and
easier for the girl. These ladies
sat in the court room all during the
trial.

It is understood on good authority
that the attorneys for Prof. Teal
will use this as one of their points in
making appeal to the supreme court
to reverse the decision of the judge.
The attorneys, according to the report
which seems to be fully authoritative,
claim that the course of justice was
interfered with by their presence
and the purpose for which they came.
It is also reported that the defense
will allege that justice was interfer-
ed with and the trial was unfair
claiming that the local newspaper
leaned in favor toward the prosecu-
[trix?].

Girl Principal Witness

At the trial yesterday the young
woman was the principal witness in
the case and was in the witness chair
for a considerable period. She testi-
fied that she had become acquainted
with Teal when he was boarding at
her home near Travelers Rest. They
became good friends and, according to
her statement, Teal told her of his
love and asked that she marry him
in September, 1916. She testified that
after he had promised to marry her,
he seduced her and that she "had
perfect faith in him." She met him
and was with him in Greenville and
Columbia afterward.

A tiny baby, which through its life
must be under the shadow of the
bar sinister was carried in the
arms of Solicitor Martin to be shown to
the girl identified as Teal's child and
exhibited to the jury.

REDUCE LICENSE
ON PUBLIC AUTOS.

----------o----------
Drivers Who Cease to Park in
Streets Get Advantage of
Ordinance—McDavid Elect-
ed on the Police Board.

----------o----------
An ordinance reducing the min-
imum license for public service auto-
mobiles from $50 to $25, in cases
where Line drivers keep their cars in
garages and do not park them in the
streets, was passed by the city coun-
cil at its regular semi-monthly
meeting last night.

The matter has been under consid-
eration for some weeks past, and the
move was decided upon, it is under-
stood, in view of the recent protest
made by public service car operators
upon the city license, which was
raised from $25 to $50 this year,
and which was further amended by
scaling the license tax to run from
$50 to $75 according to receipts. It
is understood a number of pub-
lic service auto drivers will avail
themselves of the opportunity to
reduce their license taxes.

McDavid Commissioner.

J. A. McDavid was elected mem-
ber of the police board, seceding
E. E. Johnson, without opposition.
Mr. McDavid's name was proposed
by Alderman Harvley, and was sec-
onded by Alderman Eile. Mr. Mc-
David will probably take office in
the next few days. The term which
he fills expires this fall.

Improve Main Street.

The proposed improvement of
North Main street above Earle
street again came up for the consid-
eration of council last night. Messrs.
Hester and Hindemann, property own-
ers in that section who are among
those desiring to develop a first-class
residential section, appearing again
before the body.

It was a pointed out that the con-
struction of a culvert over the
branch, and a fill to give the street
a proper grade would cost almost
$5,000. The present council did not
seem to feel that it had sufficient
funds to enable it to buy a portion
of this, but agreed that the city
convicts might do some work oon the
street there a little later on. The
street committee was asked to take
under advisement the matter of
recommending to the suceeding coun-
cil a promotion to pay a portion of
expense of the culvert and fill.

Report on Library.

Mayor Webb made a report on his
recent visit to the Carnegie Corpora-
tion in New York, in the interest of
the $25,000 [evocation?] for the Green-
ville city and county library. Mayor
Webb gave to the officials of the Cor-
poration a splendid line of talk on
what a big place Greenville is, and
what a large population is not in-
cluded in the city limits. While he
received no intimation of the decision
of the corporation, he feels that
Greenville has a good chance to get
the money, which will insure the
erection of a splendid library here.

DICKSON'S CONDITION
REPORTED IMPROVED

----------o----------
The condition of Jeff Dickson, who
was knocked on the head and robbed
night before last at Woodside mill,
was reported improved today. Mr.
Dickson was returning from Ander-
son and left the [Interurban?] car at
Woodside when he was hit in the
head and robbed of almost $50.

[Pearl?] Stover has been arrested by
a sheriff's deputy in connection with
the robbery.
--------------------o--------------------
Had Preliminary Hearing.

Roxie Gamble and Will Moore, who
before the United States commission-
ers were given a preliminary hearing
yesterday afternoon, were bound over
to the next term of Federal court.
Whey were charged with having pass-
ed counterfeit money at Piedmont.
Both the arrested are negroes.

RESTRICTED LIST
STREETS BE PAVED

----------o----------
Council to Take New Start In
Selecting Streets Under Or-
dinance Passed at the Meet-
ing Last Night.

----------o----------
No street in the city of Greenville
can be paved unless it is properly
supplied with all sewer, water and
gas pipes necessary for present and
future needs, according to an ordi-
nance passed by the city council last
night, upon introduction by Alder-
man A. H. Wells.

Under the terms of the resolution
also, all petitions for permanent street
paving or sewer extension must be
passed upon by the whole council, in-
stead of merely the street committee,
at a special meeting of the council
held at least 24 hours previous to
the meeting of council at which the
paving or sewer work is authorized.

The ordinance changes the plan of
selecting streets for paving and sew-
er work, adopted by ordinance at the
preceding meeting of the council.

The understanding is held by coun-
cil that the ordinance, which was
passed without a dissenting vote, can-
cels the council's former action in
authorizing the paving of a number
of streets; and starts the paving
question over again where it was at
the preceding council meeting.

This does not mean, of course, that
all the streets already decided upon
will not be paved, but places the
whole list subject to this further re-
view of the council, and it is possible
some changes will be made to the list.

"I do not know positively that any
of the former list decided upon will
have to be changed," said Alderman
Wells this morning commenting upon
the ordinance. "But I am positive
that we would be doing the wrong
thing to pave streets that would have
to be torn up again in a short time
for the laying of gas, sewer or water
lines."

Under the terms of the ordinance,
it is possible that a special meeting
of the council will be held in the
next few days, to pass upon petitions
for paving and sewer work.

The ordinance adopted last night is
in full as follows.

Following is the ordinance adopted
by the council last night:

An ordinance regulating permanent
street improvements and extension of
sanitary sewers in the City of Greenville, in
council assembled:

Section 1. That from and after the
passage of this ordinance all petitions
or applications for roadway and for
sidewalk paving shall be printed or
written and presented in the city
council by a street committee at a
regular or called meeting of city
council, held not less than twenty
four (24,) hours previous to the
meeting of city council at which such
paving is authorized. The kind of
paving proposed for each street shall
be stated at such meetings.

Section 2. That all proposed ex-
tensions of the sanitary sewer system
of the city of Greenville shall be writ-
ten or printed and presented to City
council at a regular or called meet-
ing held less than twenty four
(24) hours [prvious] to the meeting
of city council at which such sewer
extension is authorized. The proposed
size of the pipe and an estimate of the
cost shall be stated at such meeting.

Section 3. That no contract for
paving or sewer extension of any
kind shall be entered into by the City
of Greenville unless such petitions
or applications therefor has been acted
upon favorably by city council at a
previous meeting as provided for in
the two preceding sections;

Section 4. That no roadway pav-
ing shall be constructed or contracted
for until each street or streets are
properly supplied with all sewer, wa-
ter, and gas pipes necessary for pres-
ent and future needs.

Section 5. That all petitions or ap-
plications for roadway paving shall be
presented to the sewer, water and the
light committees of city council be-
fore adoption.

Section 6. That [not] street or streets
shall be paved until the sewer, water
and light committees of city council
attach to or endorse on each petition
or application for paving, a certifi-
cate showing that such street or
streets is supplied with all necessary
pipes for sewer, water and gas pur-
poses or that contract for laying the
pipes has been actually let work to
bee completed before contract for pav-
ing is authorized.

Section 7. This ordinance shall
take effect immediately from and
after the date of its passage.

Section 8. That all ordinances in
conflict with this ordinance be and
the same is hereby repealed.
