L a L Ef ublrsh d Every Friday XXIV MT VERNON ROCKCASTLE COTOTTT RY EMDAY AUG 4 1911 UMBER I JUDGE iCHARGE BET HU RUMS The charge delivered by Judge B J Bethurum to the grand jury at the special term ol court at Somerset called to investigate the murder of Magistrate A B Beaty and C unable W F Heath by James Ehsan 1 Fount HeUon at Burn SJde was considered the strongest charge ever delivered to a grand jury in the Somerset Court House Believing there to be much con tained therein whtch can be ap plied in our own county we copy the charge in full I believe that a speedv trial of persons charged with crime is abso lutely essential and necessary to the proper administration and enforcement of the criminal laws of our Commonwealth Delay is the favorite weapon of the criminal They all play for time with the view of finally wearing out the case He knows that with each continuance of his case the chinces for an acquital are greatly improved Of course he does not know how but he hopes for some thing to happen to bis benefit In the first place he wants public sentiment to die out He realizes that public sentiment is a powerful influence in bringing the criminal to punishment and he figures that with this gone and out of the way his battle for freedom is more than halfwon then be hopes to be able to get new and valuable evidence in his own behalf either by bribery or otherwise and again there is a probability of the death or re moval from the State of import ant and material witnesses for the State All these things and hundreds of others iuduce the criminal to fight fora postponement of his case My policy as Judge is to favor the accused as little as possible along these lines and to force them to trial as speedily as pos F nu1vnon i iOUII IVOLUME 45II CoonIsistentwith both to the State and the accused In my judgment an official in adhering to this policy and determi nition will do more to reduce crime in bis district than anvthing else that he can do It will strengthen the faith of the people in the power and virtue of the law It will lessen the clamor of the people for mob violence and lynchings will be less frequent in the future than in the past Continuing he said I am not here to pass upon the question of the guilt or innocence of the two defendants Ellis and Helton who are charged with this crime That is a question that is left entirely with the trial jury I am not acquainted with the facts in this case and will not be till the evidence is heard in the regular way It is true that I have been told about what has been done at the time of this killing but I shall not be influenced by that But if I am correctly informed of the facts connected with this kill lug Pulaski county has never been cursed with a more diabolical and brutal murder than the one you are to investigate The county has witnessed some of the blackest murders known to criminal annals men have been killed and burned for their money women have been brutally outraged and young girls have fallen victims of savage scoundrels and their happy lives have been rendered worthless and all this has happen ed in this county but ifall ac counts are true in point of bru tality and savagery the killing of Beatty and Heath hasnt a parallel in the history of the county It seems that there was no excuse for the killing utwe eant say what the the trial will develop I prom ise that their trial shall be fair and that all their constitutional rights will be fully protected iL learn that there was talk of a lynching in Burnside on the evening of this unfortunate killing but I am proud that the good sensible law abiding citizens of that good town asserted themselve and that a situation so grave and serious was so controlled that thi great county was spared the dis grace that a lynching by 01 angry mob would have brought tc it Burnside while it has its law less element is blessed with SOON of the finest people in the world It is due to their good judgment and wise counsel tint no trouble or disturbance followed this kill- Ing and we are all deeply in debted to them for this manifestation of love for law and order upon their part They are to be con gratulated for their splendid self mensIvolumes as to their worth and character as lawabiding high toned citizens opposed to law lessness in every form cBut these good people have been unusually patient and they have just cause for complaint on likeIa face They are justified in the belief that the town has been wantonly out raged by the shedding of the blood of their officials These men as officials were engaged in a battle royal with the worst element of the blind tiger brigade and in this battle for supremacy of law and order tipqn the one sfde and theI tiger upon the other it was maul test that the blind tiger was about to hoist the white flag and the friends of temperance were begin ning to feel that Burnside was saved and that the tigers were doomed to inevitable extinction The citizens were backing the officials and all were working to gether And at this time when hope was in the heart of every lover ot law and order and their breasts were swelled with the gloi T of their achievements these lawless men swoop down upon them and kill the officials who won for them the battleI that in the light of all these things the people have a right to be = aroused and it is natural for them to feel that they have been outraged theulaws have been prostituted I activityI theyiat this time t It hss not been many months ince a desperate tigerman E1TWesleyI head and face for no qther reason t than Wesley was engaged in tholocale outrage upon cency was an open insult to every decent person in the county All this is referred to in order that the public may understand how desperate these persons are and to

CHARGE Continued from First page the purposes of the law So matters have gone on a9d the struggle continued with the law and order forces gaining ground until the tiger men became so desperate that it is freely charged f by good people that the death of these two officials were ordained These people assert that there is a principle involved in this matter that is of far greater con sequence to this county than the loss ot human life and they de mand the punishment of these de fendants not alone as punishment for murder but as a vindication of the law and for the vindication of the principal for which they are fighting and they call upon all the good citizens of this county to stand by them in this the supreme struggle of their lives for the supremacy of the law and the extermination of the blind tigers in their community Gentlemen I often say to the grand juries in charging them that if we could rid this land of the bootlegger and blind tiger we would have the battle for law enI forcement forever won This law is difficult of enforcement The customers of the tiger will hedge and often bear false witness rather that indict the offender Although difficult to enforce this law it can bi done I am committed to the declaration that before iny term ot office expires there will not be a single tiger doing business in this entire district and I propose to make good that declaration I have great faith in the strength of the people and in their ability to drive crime from the laud My purpose is to arouse the people to a sense of their duty and urgj upon them the necessity of their co operation with the officials in this business of enforcing the law The officers are powerless tai correct evils and enforce thekw1 unless they have a healthy pubic sentiment behind them The peo ole must encourage the officers I want to warn the people of this county that their part in this mJt1 ter of government is not complete not finished when the ballot is leposited and the official is elected It is their duty as good citizens desiring good government and strict enforcement of the law to keep the officials posted as to the violations of law and to do any andall things necessary to help ring the offenders to justice You cant shut your eyes to all these evils and refuse to help punish the offenders and then with any sort of conscience abuse an official for not detecting the criminal You must bear your part of the burdens and this you cant escape and be a good citizen These officials at Burnside were receiving the proper encourage ment from the citizens of that town busiInessthe sacrifice of two lives to do itI or at least two lives were given as a sacrifice upon the altar of re form You know that if it had not been foi this infamous blind tiger business todav these two men would be alive with their families at home Instead they are asleep in death and their families are bowed down under a perfect mountain of sorrow and bereave ment with nothing but the generous hand of charity to sustain them I appeal to the good citizen ship of this county to do your whole duty and redouble your efforts to the end that these tigers be extermiated1hese enemies of the human family these curses that have wrecked more homes produced more crime destroyed more manhood sent more souls to perdition and filled more asylums for the insane then all the combined evils
