Dr. "Woodrow's Status.
At its recent cession in Williamsion,
the South Carolina Presbytery unanimously
admitted Dr. Jame< VVoodrow
t ill m?>mhprslim on exaininati >n
anil 01 letters from the Presbytery of
Augusta, Ga , of which he his been
for many j;ears a member in fail standing.
As Dr. Wood row's relation to
the Church and the Presbytery h-is
been a miuter of much misco ception
and misrepresetitatio-i, it may not be
amitS to give a review of hi* ?-a-e.
Before the war, while a member of
the Angiuta Pre-byteiy, he was elected
to a professorship in the Theological
Seminary. Daring all his connection
with the Seminary he retained his
mmmm membership in the Augusta rresoyterv.
When tl.e Synods in control of
the Seminary removed him from his
professorship on account of his mild
views on evolution, which he has
always strenuously claimed were not
at variance with the strictest interpretation
of the words ot the Bih'e, that
teach merely that man was created
"from the dust of the ground" without
specifying the means of creation,
the Asgnsla Presbytery upheld him,
and acquitted him triumphantly of all
charges ot heresy, juid even made him
moderator of a session while he was
under fire. It h*s ever since declared
him to be in full standing as a minister
and a Presbyterian.
After Dr. Woodrow left the Seminary
he endeavored to connect himself
with the Charleston Presbytery, within
whose limits he was residing. That
this Presbytery is sotne.vhat peculiar
t in its views is shown in the Sadie
Means telephone case, and in other
v 'natters. Some of its members were
on unpleasant personal relations with
Dr. Woodrow, and after a hot fight,
a majority refused to admit him,

from the Augusta Presbytery. Dr.
Woodrow has-all along desired to join
Mis Charleston Presbytery, because he
considered it to be the ouc with which
to couuect himself, since he resides in
At it? recent meeting, the General
Assembly declared that Dr. Woodrow
was a member of the Augusta Presbytery
uutil he joined some other. This
being regarded as a decision that a
minister may belong to a Presbytery
without residing actually within its
limits, and the Charleston Presbytery
still being unwiiliug to admit him, Dr.
Woodrow has entered the South Carolina
Prcsbyteiy whose jurisdiction extends
just across the river from Columbia.
In view of the slurs and slanders
that have been uttered to the effect
that Dr. Woodrow has been "turned
out of the church", it is well to reaam!?mUia?

instead of attempting to combat Dr.

TIIE GOVERTOR REFUSED TO IX- |
The Atkinsons Met Death KravcJy?Jaspjr
Denounces Tilniun and Othera?No
Confession, No C' aiii of Innocence* I
On Thursday evening before the day j
appointed for (he hanging ft' J -hn and
Jasper Aik:nson, speculation was rile j
as to whether ti e Governor would j
commute the sentence to life imprisonment.
About dark, an unusual sight!
was observed in the jail; it was lit up
and fccveral parties were seen in il e
corridor. John Atkinson was seen
from the steeds wiping his eyes with
a handkerchief. The purport of the
movement in the jail was soon made
known. Tbe attorneys for the con
demned men had received a telegram
about 7 o'clock which read as follows:
"Xo hopp; the Governor wil! not commute",
signed O. W. Buchanan. This
was communicated to the sheriff, and
Dr. \V. S. Stokes was soon on hand
an J repaired 10 the cell of the doomed
met! to offer spiritual aid and comfort
alter this message had been conveyed
to them. The prisoners asked for a
light, saying they would not sleep and
decired to read daring the night. The
r(quest was at once complied with by
he sheriff at:d a night watch was put
on. Both men staid in the same c^ll
as it was the last night they were to
spend on earth t< gether.
There was a suspicion that perhaps
nrrai gements were being made to
remove them to Columbia, as it wns
thought by some that perhap? a message
might come trotn the Governor to
move them in the night. iiut tlie early
morn di.-pelhd any such idea- As
early us G.30 in Ihe morning parti* s
fruin the neighb?rhood of th* Atkinsons
were seen on the street*; and at
6 45 a w:igon was seen coming d>wn
street with four white men on it which
turned out to be the wagon to take the
bodies to the grave. They drove into
the jail yatd and unhitched. Curious
crowds od around the jail \a?d and
the town wore an unusual appearance.
A brother of one and an uncle of the
other condemned men weut to the cell
about S.45 to bid them farewell. The
nartinor CrPTIA WJI5 Drlitlftll illdeOd.
I? O T
They asked him to try and meet them
in heaven, and told him to never do
anything that was wrong. Ttiey both
displayed considerable nerve at the
parting, but the visiting relative was
moved to tears.
About 9 o'clock the shejiff made the
final adjustment of the rope and every
preparation was made complete. After
the relative of the condemned men left
they at once commenced to die-s for
the ex cation. They were alwaxs carcfnl
about their personal appearance,
even when going to the court house.
A watch was kept over the cell during
the morning afcer the ni^ht watch was

every de'.ail had been arranged, and
the hands on the clock seemed slowly
but surely (o'y>U around lo the fateful
hour. At 9.iJ;plue coffins were hauled
into the yard, two plain pine coffins,
and placed in a boggy house. The
crowd viewed them with an air of
curiosity. Abcut 9.30 the attorneys
visited the prisoners and they seemed
to be bearing np very well. Jasper
compained cf not feeling well as he
had ??ot *Iept any. They requesied
their altorue>s to a?k the sheriff to
open tbe wooden dour at?d give them
some fre>h air as the ce 1 was very
( lose with the door cioscd.
A few minutes after 10 o'clock Ilcvs.
Stokes and McDonald visited the condemned
men. They expressed lull
faith in Christ and said they had no
hard feelings against any one They
were jast a little nervous in this interview.
Weights were put or. the ropes in
order te stretch them. 11.05 the sheriff
cleared the yard of a'l crowds but
surrounding sheds and elevations were
lined with people on the outside of
the enclosure. Soon a small number
were admitted at the gate upon presentation
of a ticket by each party.
At 11.27 the? sheriff, accompanied by
the attorneys, several deputies and
Rev. Mr Stoke*, proceeded to the cell
of t!-.e doomed men. He carried in his
had a couple of pairs of shackle?. Dr.
Buchanan, the county physician, stood
in company with Dr. Jeter and Dr.
J. 1>. Douglass.
At cxactly 1G minutes t> 12 the condemned
men walked upon the scaffold,
the trap door was put in order. The
sheriff, llev. Mr. Stokes, and a deputy
went up with them; they were handcuffed,
their hands behind them.
Jasper, in a clear strong voice, said:
"I want to tell you all that I have not
been rightly treated by the State of
South Carolina nor the people of Fairfield
County; Governor Tillman lias
not treated me right. You have all
heard him say he had nerve and
the backbone. I say that I have the
nerve and backbone to stand here and
say that he has not done right. He
has lis-oned to the anneal of nreindiced
people; but I am the boy with the
nerve and backbone to meet death.
If you have a wife stay at home with
her, or a father and mother stay with
them, if you are in bad company vow
will be judged by your company and
not by your innocence. It is hard to
be wrongfully separated from a dear
companion. I am as dear to my companion
(wife) as you aye to yours/'
lie thanked the sheriff and said he
should be re-ele.ted; thanked Deputy
D E McDowell, and Andv, the jailor.
He called up Mr. E li. Ragsdale and
thanked him for what his firm and
Mr. J. G. Mcl'ants had done. John
called Rev. Mr. Stokes up three times
to pray for them, and he prayed earnestly
At 12.0o the sheriff adjusted the
knot and at exactly 12.00 the drop fell
and John and Jasper Atkinson swung
into eternity. There was a shriek in
the streets by some woman as the thud
was heard. John was pronounced
dead in 14 minutes, Jasper in 18 minutes.
In a short space of time the
bodies were cu;. down and put in the
coffins and taken to Richland County
for burial. Both of their necks were
b uk n and death wa instantaneous.
The execution was a success in every
detail. ii<>t the slightest mishap oc

Mr. Stokes thought, so we hear, that
John \v:ui to I i<> confers, but courage
f;ii ed liiiu; the attorneys say that the
i piisoiiers expected Mr. Stoke? to ask
if they were guilty and would have
flatly denied it. They, however, did
not protest innocence but only said
they had not been fairly treated.
John's brother attempted to attack a
young Mr. Moore with his knife while
the bodies were still hanging, but was
stopped The sheriff gave him some
wholesome advice and hushed him up.
More trouble is expeoted but the advice
Jasper Atkinson gave on the gallows
had better b ; heeded
A crowd was at Ridge way Thursday
night to intercept the Atkinsons
in caie the Governor had started them
to the penitentiary by that route.
Public opiui >n is unanimous as to their
guilt. Thus ends the murder of John
H. ( lamp.
HISTORY OK TIIE CRIME.
The history of the crime for which
these two unhappy young men have
suffered the penalty of their lives by
an ignominious death upon the gallows
reveals both the unerring truth of the
old adage, "murder will surely out,"
and that the assassination of John II.
damp was carefully premeditated and
concealed, to all appearances, by such
art as would prevent suspicion falling
upon the murders.
Yet, by the instinctive faculty of the
"born detective," Mr. R. D. Bolick
leading him at the outset of his connection
with the crime as constable to
suspect the complicity of John Atkinson
from the demeanor and state of
mind lie evidenced, a chain of testimony
was from day to day wound
around the two cousins that inevitably
concluded in the verdict, guilty, found
against them upon their trial.
On the last Saturday night of the
month of January, 1893, Mr. II. A.
scares, who was tnen noiumg me
officc of trial justice at Ridgeway, was
aroused about 11 o'clock by John
Moore and John Atkinson who had
come to notify the coroner and thus
allay all suspicion from attaching to
himself. They said John II. Clamp
had been found foully murdered on
his pkcc when returning home late
from town, in company with his son,
a lad named Peter, about fourteen
years old, and 110 one could imagine
who had killed him. Getting Dr. S S.
Linder and Mr. Uolick, haste was
mace to reach the spot where Clamp
still lay wiltering in his blood. At
first the moon shore half dimly through
L1JU UJUUU5 gamut lUg lit ?iiv^ u^uvuuo
and lighted the company on their forlorn
and gruesome path, bnt on the
way this little, light altogether failed
and the entire party rode closely together
for guidance and protection as
Moore led the advance and kept the
straight road. Mr. B^lick began ques
tioning John.Atkinson about the character
of Clauip, who his enemies were,
and who could most leasonably be
suspected of a crime so great as this
committed only two hours before.
John could give no clue as to any
particular enemies Clamp had made,
but as he lived upon the place as a
tenant he knew him well, and while
he did not like to speak ill of the dead,
still he couhl but say so and so; and
proceeded to give such a reputation to
Clamp as would lead one to wonder
he had been suffered to live as long as
he did. He referred to the waylaying
the year a?;o that < lamp had experienced
on his ret mi i from Columbia
with, as was thought, ;i large sum of
* ?v i. 1_^J1 J.J
money on ins person, wnicn nau euueu
in no one being definitely suspected.
Now, it is u principle of human
nature that, with a person so foully
dealt with as Clamp, had been such a
few inoment< ago, one might say,
before, a man who knew him well,
lived on his place,: nd, as he said, getting
on together in a most friendly
manner, would, if his mind had been
in a natural slate, have spoken only
good of his dead friend, magnified the
good points of his character, excused
or passed over in silence the most that
couM be said of lum, and, in short, be
so overwhelmed with the shock of the
dreadful anair as not to exhibit tne
calm and reflective state of mind John
Atkinson evidenced in speaking of his
Whether or not Mr. Bolick thus
generalized, his irstinclive detective
faculty was aroused with immediate
suspicion, and, after exhausting the
conversation \yith Atkinson, he gradually
fell b;i?k iD the cempanv and
whimpered i*? ilie trial justice that he
believed ."l^hn Atkinson to be involved
in Chimp's murder, and that when the
place where Clamp lay in the road,
was reached. Atkinson iconld not $toj>
there, but go on to the house.
The constable was requested to keep

as the scene of t lift murder was reached,

liave to drive, and had discharged the
whole contents at short range through
1 he head, causing instant death, though
the frightened animal ('lamp was
driving had dragged the body some
distance further, where its striking
against a stump had caused the cart to
overturn beside the road?and there
the body was found in a rut. Peter,
Clamp's son, had been riding ahead,
and the report of the gun caused him
to be thrown and somewhat bruised,
though he was able to run the distance
home and tell his mother he feared his
father had been shot. The road he
traveled to the house described an
angle, so that the divert distance from,
the scene of the murder to the house
was considerably Shorter, going over
.a hmnnh. through a lar^i; bottom, then
soft with repeated raiiis, and seldom
used on that account as a path. Until
daylight, nothing could be done to
search fur evidences of this dreadful
crime, and the interval was employed
in sending oil'for neighbors to form a
coroner's jurv and removing the body
of the unfortunate man to his house.
As soon, however, as the first indications
of dawn were seen in the east,
the coroner, Mr. lioiick, the physician,
and Mr. Lipscomb, proceeded to the
spot, and a most careful search was
made in the vicinity. The result was |
that a single track was found in the,1
soft mud of the bottom referred to,
of a man, running in places, because)

That was f</^wed till lost on trie Tiill
where the house was situated. In addition,
it was found that so closely
had the murderer lay to his intended
victim's path, the waddinsr of the load
had been forced entirely through with
the shot, and piece-? were found shattered
on a tree opposite the ambush in
which some of the buck shot* lay embedded.
-"The track in the bottom was
most carefully measured and its peculiarties
noticed, the minute pieces of
powder stained and blood-red paper
used as wadding carefully marked and
preserved, and about a dozen shot extracted
from the trees. This track
hanged Jasper, and these pieces of
wadding convicted John as accessory.
On returning, the jury was organized,
and an investigation .held. The room

The examination of the witnesses
being, by the direction of the jury,
held separately, it was deposed by
members of the household that on the
afternoon preceeding the murder the
two cousins had taken Mr. Clamp's
gun, expressing a desire to hunt for a
rabbit they had seen behind the house
in a certain hollow, possibly a quarter
of a mile off, and that the shooting of
the gun had been heard, which statement
was corroborated by the testimony
of some close neighbors- Mean
while there had been disseminated in
some mysterious* manner during the
silent hours of the night, as the members
of the jury had waited for daylight
to commence their, investigation,
a feeling of suspicion agaiost these
two condemned men, resulting in their
keeping aloof and then again moving
briskly around the place, as watch
was kept over the dead murdered man
in the room where he lay. "When,
therefore, on their examination, a denial
first was made that the gun had
been discharged in the hollow, then,
an admission giver 'hat it had been
shot to kill a rabbit, out that the shot
had missed, the first fatal link was
forged in the evidence that has brought
them to the gallows.
At the request of the jury, the two
Atkinson* accompanied them to the
i place where Mr. Bolick had observed
the track, and when it was found tbat
in every particular the track was identical
vri'h that of Jasper, the minds of
tlm?e present became strengthened in
their suspicions. The jnrv returned,
but before that John had fled?neither

j This negligence on the part ot the

; or he may have lessened his chances
for recovery by treating with physicians
who had little or no knowledge of such affections,
or by deluging himself with worthless
so-called remedies. His case was a sad
one, but no worse than that of a-iy other
nervous sufferer, who has nervous or sick
headache, biliousness, dizziness, irritability,
melancholy, failing memory, hot flashes,
fainting, sleeplessness, nervous dyspepsia,
sexual debility, epilepsy, etc. The same or
similar consequences are likely to res.ult to
any one who has any of these advance
symptoms of an awful end. Do not hesitate
in getting rid of them by intelligent treatment.
Dr. Franklin Miles, the celebrated
specialist, has studied nervous diseases over
20 years, and has discovered the only rei:->v,io

untary testimonials prove the virtues of Dr.
Miles' Restorative Nervine.
Alonao Barker,of Clinton, N. Y., writes: "I
was so afflicted with extreme nervousness that
I was on the verge of insanity. My hands trembled
so that I could scarcely feed myself. I used
twelve bottles of Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine
and was cured. It is with pleasure I recommend
this wonderful remedy for nervous troubles."
"I had been a preat sufferer from chronic
headache until I began, about four months ago,
to uie Dr. Miles* Restorative ? >rvine and Pills,
since which time I have not had a headache.
Several of my friends are using Dr. Miles' Remedies,
and liml them, as I did, to be more than
yoa claim for them."?Mrs. Mary Kister, Los
