SOME MEN OF THE SOUTH.
Remarkable Tales Told of Noted Soil L'a
erners and Said to Be True.
Washington Oorresimudence of the Dhihidel
The favorite rendezvous of the statesmen
of South Carolina in Charleston is the
Charleston Hotel, still grand, gloomy and
peculiar, " ith its large pillars and its spa
eious piazzas and square area, like the
Louvre Hotel in Paris. This hotel is still
owned by the Keltt family, one of its most
distinguished members, i-zrtvrenee M.
Keifct, being well remembered for Ins
assault, in the Senate chandler of the United
States upon Charles Sumner when a Sena
tor in Congress, an occurrence second only
to the effect of the guns trained on Fort
Sumter in firing the Northern heart and
causing the late unpleasantness, now. thanks
to the rapid growth of the new South, only
to be commented on or criticised by the his
torians who are pleased to wander in the
dim aisles of the past.
In the Charleston Hotel, occasionally wet
ting their “whistles’’ with corn whisky, the
favorite South Carolina beverage, could lie
found during the sessions of the United
States Court two men still prominent in the
politics of the old Palmetto State. One was
Judge R. B. Carpenter, the other Samuel
Melton, then and now United States District
Attorney of that State.
Judge Carpenter's history has been varied
and romantic. He was prosecutor of the
Picas in one of the interior counties of Ken
tucky, and first won his legal spurs through
bis brilliant prosecution of Matt. Ward,who
was tried for the murder of Butler, a school
teacher, educated at Hanover College, Ind.,
who had inflicted personal chastisement
upon a brother of llatt Ward, who was a
scholar in Butler’s Institute in Louis
ville. Ward was acquitted after a des
perate legal battle, contested inch by inch,
and it is said that it was in this famous
case that Tom Marshall got even with a
Kentucky Judge. Tom Marshall was the
brother of Humphrey Marshall, onco a
member of Congress, and chiefly remem
bered, as to his military career, for tho
rapidity of the movements of his command
in getting away from Gen. Garfield tip the
Tennessee valley, JGarfield having driven
Marshall before his srfia.ll but victorious
army out of the State of Tennessee. Tom
Marshall > • the wittiest man Kentucky
ever produced, and perhaps tho brainiest,
and he perished intellectually, like many
another child of genius, from the rapid
growth of his fondness for blue-grass
He was always a political rival of Rev.
Dr. Robert J. Brecuenridge, the fminent
patriot, whose dignified presence as tempo
rary president of the Baltimore Convention,
which nominated Abraham Lincoln for a
second term, is still remembered.
Tom Marshall was fond of saying “that,
he and Rev Dr. Breokenridge early in life
had taken different texts ” Tom’s “was the
bottle and Dr. Breckenridge’s was the Bible, ’’
and certainly, added Tom, “the reverend
doctor will not deny that I have close ad
hered to my text.’’
In the county in which the immortal Tom
chiefly practiced at the bar an erratic jurist
named Judge Nuttle presided and whenever
Dan Rice’s circus arrived the Judge always
‘This court will now adjourn to see the
elephant swim the Ohio river.”
BORROWING OF THE JUDGE.
In the cause celebre, where the defendant
was tried for murder, possibly the Matt
Ward case, the Judge admitted some testi
mony which thoroughly disgusted Tom Mar
shall over the barrister’s objections. He
jumped to his feet, not fully recovered
from a big game of draw poker the night
before, and said in anger:
“Judge, do you know that Pontius Pilate
convicted Jesus Christ by admitting just
such testimony as that?”
The Judge quickly replied: “Clerk, fine
Mr. Marshall SSO for contempt of court.”
Tom rase, and, steadying his somewhat
vibratorv motions against the railing front
ing the Judge’s bench, with mock gravity
“May it please your honor! It has been
some months since I have seen SSO of my
own money. I beg your honor to lend me
the money with which to pay the fine!”
“The court” was astounded, but catching
its judicial breath, replied, sotto voce:
“Mr. Clerk, upon reflection, the court is
inclined to remit Tom Marshall’s fine, as the
State of Kentucky is better able to lose that
SSO than the court is!”
To return to Judge Carpenter. He held
office as a disbursing Treasury agent in Chi
cago under Buchanan, and espoused the
Union side during the war. In a street
encounter with a Kentuckian in Covington,
who had taken mortal offense ut something
Carpenter had said in some pyrotechnic
flight of his untamed oratory, Carpenter
was shot through the body with a bullet
from a navy revolver, but after being given
up fbr dead rapidh recovered, and made as
manv and as formidable stump speeches for
the Kentucky Democracy as he did before
he lay at death’s door.
Carpenter did not n9ed reconstructing,
but went South with the war tide of migra
tion seeking fortune, and was made a judge
in Columbia, 8. C., of one of the State
courts. He was an inveterate faro player
fmm the days of his youth, and the green
baize table had the same fascination for the
eloquent Kentuckian that a cocking main
possesses for the sporting citizen of Georgia
or South Carolina. It is told of Judge Car
penter (the ad literatim accuracy of the
ftory I do not vouch for) that, while on the
bench, a venerable “gambolier” ol'Columbia
Wrested his colored servant, the faro table
"lookout” for stealing S2OO worth of blue
The ease came on for trial. The learned
Judge professed entire ignorance of the
character and value of the blue “ivory,”
and told the aged “sport” he was at a loss to
fix the exact value or the blue but valuable
countere of fortune. The old gambler
waxed indignant. “Jedge.’ he said, “what’s
the use of you’re a-foolk'. Many a time
you've coppered th<* nee in "my place and
right well you know what’s the value of
them 'ere blue chips."
The chop-fallen disciple of Blaekstdne
und exponent of values asked no more ques
tions in that case.
A MAN OK LEARNING.
Judge Carpenter, in spite of his sporting
proclivities, is a gentleman of real learning,
J capital diner out and an ever-welcome
habitue of the Washington clubs. Ha Ims
always been close to eg-Senator Steve Dor
wy, and cut a respectable figure in the star
rouUi trials or. Dorsey’s side. Carpenter,
since the exit of Artndr's administration,
has gone hack to South Carolina and has
subsided from tho public gnzo, but is likely

old Dincwinc his allegiance to the
. w . order of
office under President Arthur. And
a more difficult place no native Carolinian
was ever called on hi till. At first the Dis
trict Attorney’s social ostracism was com
plete, and his old friends in rhe service of
the gray flatly refused to countenance him
or to receive him socially. But Meltou went
on like a star, unhasriug and unresting, per

says. In making “power gentle and obedi
ence liberal," and soon won the respect and
even Die affection of those who were loudest
in denouncing the- South Carolina gentle
man for accepting office under the Federal
LUCK AT CARDS.
Mr. Melton’s elegant homo is a rosp-em
bowered cottage at Columbia, where he has
perhaps the finest law library in the State.
Like the typical Southerner, he isnotaverse
to a quiet game of cards, and being a player
of extraordinary nerve, many interesting
stories are told of his marvelous luck in
scooping in “jack-pots” or successfully call
ing the turn. One summer, after a long and
arduous winter in trying government eases
in Charleston, and lieing a prey to inflam
matory rheumatism, Melton went to New
York to try a change of air. “To play faro
successfully,” he says, “the player must
neither drink nor smoke.” He was stopping
at theGilsey House and “honors were easy,
with a comfortable bank account, and being
too sick to read and disinclined to talk, he
hied himself to John Morrissey’s game, near
the Hoffman House, and asked the dealer if
there was any limit to the play that dnv.
“Not for you,” replied the dealer. Mel top
placed a SIOO bill on the ace. It turned up,
and his pile of blue chips increased to S2OO.
The dealer looked nervously at the South
Carolinian, but he made no sign. In two
turns the ace showed again ana away from
Melton’s pile increased to *4OO. Still the
nervy lawyer chewed his tookpiek and said
nothing. The green baize showed six cards
and two aces in the box. Next turn dis
closed the inevitable ace on Melton’s side of
the silver box, and his “pot” increased to
SBOO. Then the counsellor’s face was as un
moved as that of a sphinx. A call turn now
engaged the nervous dealer’s attention, but
Melton sat back cool as an iceberg and said
nothing. The turn came—a three anci one
ace. The plucky lawyer's pile increased on
the ace to $1,600.
“I am riot feeling well,” said the amateur
sportsman, “and I reckon I’ve had enough
fun for the day. Dealer, I reckon I’ll cash
in my chips!”
Old gamblers sitting around the board
said that in a quarter of a century they had
never seen more nerve or luck in a single
A WONDERFUL STREAK OF LUCK.
Melton tells, with great gusto, of a still
more wonderful streak of Tuck he had in
Charleston with Grady, the father of the
now celebrated editor, then a bitter foe of
Wade Hampton. Grady was a strongman,
intellectually and physically, as Editor
Grady is, and with a brilliant companion the
three bon virants undertook to have a day
off and sailed out from the Charleston
Hotel after a bountiful breakfast of straw
berries in March, pompano, the most deli
cious of Southern fish, good coffee and Vir
This was a day when the trio meant, like
Pike's historical fine old Arkansas gentle
man, “unless some d—d contingency inter
vened,” to “bust a faro bank.”
Melton s party, the trio of amateur play
ers, had SI,OOO between them, wliich was
religiously divided up, as all Gaul was, into
three parts. They were intent on big game.
They round. The war was just over and
two Northern gamblers “opened” in Charles
ton with a roulette table and the inevitable
and painted “thirteen keerds” that have
made as much havoc in a hundred years as
an army with banners bent on red” ruin to
smiling villages and fertile plains.
The party of the third part was soon
snnffed out and his capital of $333 twined
with the woodbine. Grady had wonderful
luck. At one time he called the turn for
S2OO and picked up SI,OOO. It is a misfor
tune of faro that one deal may capture a
fortune for the man behind the'table. But
Grady’s “stacks” grew till he had $5,000 lie
fore him in “chips.” He bet SI,OOO on the
king with a copper. He lost. Luck turned.
The balance of the deal he didn’t, win a bet.
But at the end of the “call” he cashed in
$1,500 worth of ivory. He rose to go. In
vain did Melton persuade him to stay by
and see him “bust the bank.”
Grady, with his rare good sense, had
enough, and while Melton was absorbed in
the new desk he quietly slipped to the depot
and struck for Columbia (the State capital)
with his $333 increased to the snug sum of
$1,500. Melton played till dark, sometimes
having $5,000 before him, and once by two
fatal strokes of fortune with his capital re
duced to s>oo. But luck turned in a lucky
“call” for S3OO in which he picked up $1,500
for his stake of S3OO. His theory was to
play heavily on the bank’s money, and he.
pressed his luck till the “boss” gambler had
no more chips on the board, anil grew white
around the mouth, as he reached into his in
-side vest pocket for a SI,OOO bill to
pay Melton’s winnings. At the end of that
deal, Mr. Banker said slyly: “General, the
jig's up, the bank’s busted; let’s liquor.”
The lawyer rose slowly, ordered a couple
of bottles of champagne, straightening him
self, for he had not left his chair for five
hours, and when his chips were all in he
folded down in a capacious pocketboOk
$10,200 and the bank was broken.
Tlie news soon went by grapevine tele
graph that Melton and Grady had broken
B.’s liank. The gamblers thirsted for re
venge. Melton treated all the boys at the
Clarleston till midnight, and then it was
whispered that B. had opened bis bank
again. Grady was safe at the State capital,
and Melton’s friends, full of symposium
juice and with the fire of a thoroughbred,
said: “Old boy, let’s go to the jungle again
and strike the tiger in his den.” They went,
they saw. they didn’t eonquor. And at
early dawn the tall, splendid form of Tom
Melton could have been seen at the desk of
the hotel clerk, saying: “Mr. C-l-l-erk,
g-give me S2O on m-m-my ch-check; I
r-r-reckon I’ll g-go li-home.”
The grave But high-spirited counselor
rarely speaks of his bad luck, but in one
hour he was $10,200 “out.”
Homesick for Normandy.
Hwii the Bolton Transcript.
Not very long ago two ! tidies stood before
a picture of n sunny hill slopo, up which
marched tiie golden ranks of a field of
wheat. Two brawny reapers—one a man,
the other a woman—were beginning an at
tack on the rear guard of the golden army.
Just above the topmost ridge of the wheat
rose a line of cherry trees, and peeping
alovo the flank was the top of a farmhouse
“Oh, that’s Norman!” said the first lady.
“You never see that sky outside of Nor
“Yes,” said the second lady, in a tone
that, hinted of a polite doubt.
•‘Those figures are Norman peasants to
the life, too, and the irtiy the cherry tree*
cr<>wn the ridge. Oh, it makes me tnink of
my summer among the Normans.”
She sighed the sigh of the traveler who
has come I jack to the Unitod States and
found it hollow. The second lady said noth
ing. but had she known that the wheat field
represented was not five miles from the
State House, and that the Norman peasants
wore Farmer Moriarty and his industrious
daughters, she must have felt that her doubt
was vindicated. •
