A DEN OF THIEVUS
It will be recalled that mention was
made in Tuesday's issue of a robbing
cmmitted at the store of Mr. Des
Portes' last Saturday evening. Nin
Coleman was then mentioned as one
of a band of abeut four who were en
gaged in a systematic robbery. Liter
developments show that the supposi
tion advanced at that time is going to
prove true. Wednesday evening Po
liceman Gilbert, Mr. Holloway of
Columbia, and Mr. R. W. MattLews
went cut to Nin's house, which they
found well decorated with a large
quantity of bleaching. Then a drawer
was opened aid still more of the same
goods was found. A search of the
house was m,-, and Nin was found
to be pos esse l of more new pans and
other clo hing than is customary with
the most u,-" -date plates of fashion.
Nin was asked to try on a pair of
these pant., when I*, there was veri
fied the resemblance in the fit of his
pants to two cities of France -Touluase
The officers didn't continue multi
plying words with him as his acts
were more condemning than any
words could have been. Before reach
ing town Nin acknowledged that the
pants had been taken from Mr. Lan
decker. As to that bolt of bleaching,
Mr. Gladden, of the Winnsboro Racket
Company, recognized it afar off as the
piece that had been missing for several
days. There was .a bat which Nin
claimed to have paid Mr. Gladden
$150 for, when Ar. Gladden's price
for the same was only $1.15 to one and
all. Other partie, of this den of thieves,
which is located about three miles
from town, are sure to be arrested.
Their arrest will be a matter of Jy to
the merchants who have been consider
ably annoyed this way of Late, though
they have not been able heretofore to
get any tangible evidence.
Lma.-Jost as we go to press the
policemen have come in with three
more of the band of robbers and a
large quantity of the stolen goods.
Two more of the party have been
spotted and will be given quarters in
the jail if there is enough room to be
found for them.
