Randolph’s Hard Luck
A dispatch from Montgomery says: On the 13th of last April, Probate Judge Randolph, of this county, left home under a cloud. On investigation it was found he was a defaulter to the amount of over $30,000 on the State and county.
He went from here to Columbia, where he bought, so reported, a coffee plantation. During the purchased of some machinery he became involved in a difficulty with a merchant named Charles Simonds. The latter was killed and Randolph, known as Charles Radford, was arrested. The State department at Washington was appealed to and interested itself in securing for him a fair trial, which will take place shortly. The report is that his plea of self-defense was so strong that he was released on bond. The consul-general from Panama writes that from the description given, there is no little doubt of this party being Randolph.
