MATTER IS DROPPED
Charges Were Instigated by Young
Woman Waitress Who Came
Here From South Carolina
Mabel Morris, young white woman
from South Carolina, with her at
torney, Mr. Jennins, of Columbia, S.
C. and a friend, D. D. Bozeman, of
Sumpter, S. C., failed in an attempt
to bring charges of white slavery
against the proprietor of the Empire
Cafe here this week. The facts in
the case indicate blackmail as the
party's goal, but the matter went
unsettled when the three left here
soon after they attempted and failed
to make a comprise with the cafe
Wednesday, about midnight, the
party called for a federal warrant
from the office of the local U. S.
commissioner, but failed to get one.
A minor warrant, charging attempt
ed ansault, was procured from J. L.
Hassell, Justice of the Peace. When
the ease was called last night, the
cafe proprietory was present but
the others did not show up, und the
case was' thrown aside.
Several weeks ago, Bozeman, at
one time employee of a local lumber
concern, wrote the Morris woman,
urging her to come here where she
could get a fine job as a waitress in
the cafe. Upon the recommendation
of lioteman, the proprietor hired the
waitress and wired her a ticket from
Sumpter to Williamston.
While the cafe manager waited for
the waitress, it is alleged that she

she thought the case was ripe

Mr. Jennings, of Columbia, and

Sumpter appeared on the scene
Wednesday afternoon. They im
mediately started action by trying to

tu effect a compromise rather tliun
face a white slave charge. They
used a lucnl lawyer, H. M. as
a medium, but no compromise result

they sought a federal but
their application did nof justify the
issuance of such a warrant. A last
attempt to loosen up the cafe man
failed when they procured a war
rant, charging assault ami then fail

A letter written by the Morris
woman to her friend, "Mittie" in
SUmpter hid been left in the cafe,
and It was found. The scheme was
practictlly uncovered by the contents
of the letter and made it appear
as if the case had been hatched by
