whatevtr he did, he did itignoranHy
and our of a strong desire to get
some cheap tobacco.
That he might go on to Raleigh
and not have to come back heie for
trial, he preferred being tried on
Sunday. A large crowd heard it.
Even on -a prominent cit'..en of Mt,
Pleasant was present.
Mr. Hileman came up like a man,
like on e that frit innocent of any
intentional wiong. lie looked down
upon Commissioner Hill and watch
ed with r.:gle-eye precision every
step of the trial. Deputy Collector
Ilairis and Deputy Marshal King
gave in their testimony. Mr, llilei

would keep the bos if they had no
objections he wanted to feed out of.
The witri-s:e3 said none of tlr n
oiij cttd thev didn't want the box.
After the testimony wa3 all in,
Commissioner Hill said he did not
thuik the charges suataiue-1 anl
that the defendant ws released.
There are some doubtless who
will think that there is something
not yet told. Though the warrant
was issued on what was heard at t1 1
tiial of Carter.
The Standard here repeats that
whatever Mr. Hileman did that is
wrong, if such he did, he did it
through t ignorance.
During the trial Deputy Mar&hal
King asked Commissioner Hill
whether Mr. Hileman had a right to
sell tobacco without license. Mr.
Hill said he was trying this case and
not giving adyice and opinions.
This question was suggested by the
testimony that Mr, Hileman paid
the whole bill and that the other
tvo men, who wanted some of it,
were to pay Mr, i!eman.
