"THE TRIAL OF COI.. CASH FOR
1%e Jun' Falls to Agree, und a
trial ia the Result.
iu '.ho beginning* ok laaki jBicofr'ihaaaaion J
.ct Court in Darlington, Judge Preasdey j
p laiding, tho Grand Jury found a true !
bill against Col. Cash, indicted for mur
der-the killing of Col. Shannon in o duel;
and Thursday, tho 24th, was set for the
trial. Tho State waa represented by' At
torney-General You mans and Utrcuit^So
licitor Dargan. Col. Cash's lawyers were
.Col. B. C.*Watts, Gen. W. L. T. Prince
.and Mojor Spam. The jury consisted of
twelve white men. Nine witnesses wero
put upon the stand by tho State, but tho
defence declined to trouble the jury with :
any evidence, thns obtaining the reply in";
the argument. Col. B. C. Watta opened
for tho defenc?, and was followed by Solic
itor Dargan for the prosecution, and Gen. ;
W\ L T. Prince for tbe defence This
.ended tho first day's proceed.ngs.. On
Friday.. A (tor1 iiy-General You mans, and
jdajur Spam concluded tho argament.
Voumanij' speech is apoken ol' ns the
it^at effort of bia life. Jodge Presaley's
was strong and "necjuivocal, and
.wound np by assuring the jury that,
a.cording to the law, the offence with
which tim prisoner was charged, was mur
kier, and it waa nothing elf e. The jury
weat out at halt' past tour on ..Friday af
yerooon, and at ll o'clock at night, not
having brought in their verdict, the Court
ww; adjourned until Saturday. When tbe
Court opened on Saturday morning, they
cum* in, and the foreman stated that they
.ojold not agr?e. Thc Jadg* neut thara
bick with instructions. ? They came baek
in ah nat fifteen minute? without an agr?o
ns and were discharged. There- is no
itielibood of further trials ia tho Cash
"tthannon duel this t??rm, a? the Court
p/opos*.? to dispose of the prison
er* in jail iLret.
fue almost universal impression waa
"that tb?? jury, on account of duelling be
in^ an old aud honored emtom ia our
6*?te. w^a:J promptly acquit Col. Cash
but the r?sult ?hows that the case for the
State made a much stronger impreeaiofa
upon them, and upon the people, than was
?spt-c?ed. Four of the jury were for con'
vietion and eight for acquittai. And Cash
remarked that if Youmana had apoken a
half hour forger, he himself would havo
been for conviction. '
Blow the Whistle:
11?o contemplated Railroad from Ches
ter, 8. C., by the way of Newberry and
Edgefield, to Augusta. Ga., will soon bs
built-if the ptople interests* will only
wilt it to bo so. Thia road would shorten
the distance between some of the most
Important commercial centro* in Die
Western hemisphere. The resources to
be developed are immense. To say noth
ing of tho farming interest and the tim
ber along the proposed route, the Broad
Riff*r and the Saluda may be used to
turn mayhiuery enough to keep this Rail
-way ii a flourishing condition Let a
heavy lot of elbow grease ba applied to
the whueh of progress without further
tielay, or any more unnecessary talk ;
.nd let the whistle blow in triumphant
strains over the success of " The Chester
<t Augusta Railroad."
Sew Life for tbe Bine Ridge*
The ar ide from the New York
JTSmes. which we publish on anothtr
page, givirg the skeleton of a scheme
?which is likely to be carried into exe
cation for the completion of the Blue
Ridge Rii-road, will be read with
great interest bj nil of our readers as
a movement ??Vcting the material
development of our whole State in a
mot vitsl manner. The Blue Ridge
is inseparably connected with the
past history of our State, and its. re
vival ?3 like the return of a dear old
friend. 11 was th? conception of Cal
houn and Hayce, whose broad minds
recognized the importance of linking
ia commercial interest the*grand val
leys-the grain growing region of the
"Western world-^with the South At
lantic rea coRst 8nd securing i's out
Jet through our State. Lnder the
wise influences which then actuated
oar government, the systems of rotd
planned for the development of the
resources of our State wore all located
. as subsidiary to the grand trunk
which was to crots in a direct, line
from our State to the granaries of the
West. Our puerile railroad policy
since the war, and the rauds connec
ted with the Blue Ridge Railroad
daring the rv construction period, have
given to many an andae prejudice to
this Road, bat when it is remembered
that np to this period the Road was
in the hands of competent and dis
tinguished men of oar State, and. - a
vast deal of very thorough and per
manent work has been done upon the
Road in this State and Georgia, and
also in Tennessee, there is no reason
for this prejudice. Tnirty-three miles
has been built in South Carolina, and,
to show the character of the work
xjpon this Road, it is only necessary
to examine the culfcertp, which will
stand for centuries ; the bridges and
trestles, the moat important of which
were put there before the war and
are now in good condition with tho
original timber; and the iron, which,
though ueed for oven twenty years ia
fo-day of superior quality, though
not up, of course, to the latter inven
tions. From three.to four millions of
dollars have been put into this Road
io such substantial work that it is now
eroding and in available condition.
Although the work already done
upon this line pf Road his been very
extensive and thorough, even it is
not the greatest advantage offered l?y
the route, for it ia a central line, with
out dependence upon any other links
of combinations. By the Blue Ridge
roots there will be bat three links in
the connection to Knoxville, while in
the Asheville routes there will be not
less than fire or six. This is the most
feasible and desirable of all the.rou tes
across the mountains, not only for
upper C*ro!ina, but for the whole
State, for it will be independent of
all other lines, and will control a large
portion the Western freights in the
interest of Sooth Carolina's commerce.
-It will be to a*.?f greater value than
.the Western and Atlantic Railroad
is to Georgia. .
We are inclined to think the road
:T?jll now bs built, for it is a necessity
--to the Colombia & Greenville, the
Sooth Carolina and the Ouarlotte,
Columbia & Augusta Railroads The
Clyde svndic .te, who own tho Colom

rae. I was present near the polls at Edg
field C. H. on the day of electiou. I a
rived near th? polls about 7 o'clock,
thea understood the box was in the Cou
House. The entrance to where the bc
was, was densely pacsed by democrat
who kept their position-?, which render?
it impossible for me or any other republ
o*n to go in and vote, without precipita
ing a riot or row in trying to elbow m
way through the crowd. I heard sue
wjrds as these; 'Boys, hold your position
\3tand firm.' I also saw some Democrats o
"the gromid pitching rocks or brick bats rt
to the other democrats on tho porch of th
Court "louse. Of cosrse they eaugh
them and held them. There appeared t
bo an imaginary line drawn just in fror
of the Court House, down on the grouse
there were democrats who would walk u
and down this lino, and as tho republican
would come towards trie Court House the;
were told just hero not to go any furthei
I noticed this matter with peculiar inter
eit. There appeared to be an officer ii
chargo of thc line. Tho officer whom
allude to WES dressed in a very peculia
suit of ciot'i^s ; I tavo no recollection c
over seeing such a suit before. As the re
publicans came into town, it seemed ti
eiuse quito a stir among the democrats n
and around the polling place. I saw quit
a number of democrats rendezvousing ii
Masonic Hall. They carried their guns o
rifles with them : did not go up in a body
tnt went two or three at a time. .Severa
times during the morning ibero ser-med ti
be some excitement : then 1 could seo somi
ol'the men in the Hall rush to the win
dow? in a menacing attitude. 1 then lef
the vicinity of tho box, and I urged ?the:
republicans to leave also, as I was san
they could not have a fair expression o
their choice at the ballot box. As neara:
l ean estimate,, ?here were between eigh
teen and -twenty-five hundred repubiics.ni
who cams to this box to vote, but lei
without doing so, for the reasons I bav<
given. I think thero wereabon' rfj
seventy five democrats on the Court Honsi
steps and upon the porch together; thesi
places wero crowded to their utmost cr.'
pacity. There wero a few democrats or
tho ground just in front of the Courl
House, who aeemed to be on picket duty
There were also democrats at Masonic
Hall; the number 1 don't know. Cor.
etaptly, however, there would come inte
town a company of mounted democratp
I can't say how many came in during the
day. At ono time I saw a young niau,
democrat, draw out his pistol ??nd start in
the direction of some republicans who were
just in front of the Court House, as if he
saw some ono that he intended to get inte
a difficulty with, but just at this time he
waa arrested in his progress by memboii?
of hia own party laying hands upon him
and saying, 'don't do that.' Thov nil re
turned to the Court House steps.'' On
his cross examination, Simkinr: ?id that
he saw the republicans on the morning of
the election come into the vi?lsgo : some
of them had sticks and some of them had
nothing. Some of the slicks were the size
of ordinary walking sticks, and others un
usually large, though they walked tvTth
them as walking sticks.
Harry Oliphant was at Cheatbam'a
Store on the day of election. Did not voto;
was run off by the democrats, who fired
thMe times at him. No other republican
waa driven off.. " 1 know these pistol shots
were fired at roe, because there was not
but one man after me in an open old field."
Norman Youngblood was at EJgeficld
C. H. on the day of election. Witness
8iw a double barrel shot gun on the Court
House seps, a Jo-shooter under the porch_
four men with"pistols in their hands, and
the best quantity had pistols on them ;
t?aw two men on the street with shotguns
and saw two or three dozen Remington
rifles. About two or threo dozen men
carno out of a store on Park Kow with
guns and went into Masonic. Hall and Mr.
Boh* Mirna's gallery.
Lawrence Cain said ho was County
Chairman of the Republican party during
the political campaign previous to the re
cent election. " I considered my party
more thoroughly organized and moro do
terminod to voto than it ever waa. Du
ring the last campaign 1 deemed it inex
pedient to hold masa meetings in the Coun
ty. I held three or four meetings which
were made np of Precinct Chairmen alone,
and most of thean meetings were held in a
soniewhat private way. I was afraid to
hold public meetings, and was told by
prominent republicans that they thought
% mass meeting would bo treated by dem
ocrats just as they were in 1876 It is
trell known that our meeting on the 12th
infjuot, wa* brok^c np ty th* d*m
ocrats, -and that we held no other IL:
meetings daring that campaign save o
which was attended by a U. S. Com?a
sioner and several ?. S. Marshal?. Wh
the last meeting waa held there were s
or seven Companies of ?. S. troops'
town. I am aatisfied if the rep?blica
had been allowedHo vote untraveled thc
would have been a larger republican vc
polled in Edgefield in 1SS? than was ov
polled at any previous election. If a vc
er was known to be a'democrat, he bad
trouble whatever in voting ; but up to
o'clock, not a republican vote had be
polled. I saw quite a number of piste
in the hands of red-ahirters, while the vc
ing was going on ; and from the porcn ai
-windows of Maaonic Hall, .the piazza
the Printing Ole?, from the store do
now occupied by the Joint Stock Comp
ny, and on tho streets, were quite a nun
b?r of white men with gun? and pistols
their hands. I did riot vote, believing th
f could not do so with safoty. The reasc
we did not persist in our right to vot
was that there waa an armed tbs in froi
of us. and we felt satisfied it would eau
a difficulty. I saw a number of rppubl
cms marching into town with walkir
sticke, not clubs. There were 2,000 cc
. ored republican:; ia . jwn that day. Thei
are no colored democrats in this Count

E beg to announce to the good people of Edgefield that we have' accepted the
Agency (for this County) of the PALMETTO MUTUAL BENEFIT ASSO
CIATION", of Charleston, S. C. Thia Association was organized and chartered arider
the laws of thc State of South Carolina, ?3 strictly benevolent in its aim and object,
and. from its rapidly growing popularity wherever introduced, we feel assured that it
will fill a lon? felt want with our citizens for some ulan of mutual protection for their
families, based upon equitable principles, and upon rates obtained from the most re
liable insurance tables of mortality,whereby SAFETY and PERMANENCY majflbe
secured beyond anv contingency^ and at LOWER RATES than hitherto offered by
Underwriters of Life Insurance, or any of the many orders and societies established
fur the. purpose of affording pecuniary relief when the father or brother, or support of
the family, i.- stricken down by death.
Simpad Safe! Permanent ! :
The plans bl "Tnt; PALMETTO WCTCAL BESEHT ASSOCIATION*' aro simple,
safe and permanent. The members pay only one small ante mortem assessment at. a
time, which is held as a sacred trust to make th? payment ol death claims sure. The
mortuary Asse&ibwnts are calculated upon the American Experience T?bles,'are strict
ly equitable, and 'provide purely mutualprotection at actuel co?./ The amount of
asse&mentoncrcoses every year:in accordance with the mortality of each particular
?ge, thus'equalizing the burdens of the old and young, and providing tiict jterpjianeh
ey which the plans of most other societies have failed to secure.
The morluarv asseesments-aredeposited as they are collected with the "First
National Dani?. <>L Charleston, S. C .'* an J constitute a sacred fund fer tb? payment of
DeathClaiius only. The fends arising "from these assessments cannot bc lon ned or
invested in-secun?les of any..kind, but most remain on deposit ii: buck, suljc-ct to
sight drafts for the payment of Death Claims ?
Certificates of Membership will be wu d to ail acceptable persons,

Association is under good und suilicient bond for the faithful deposit ct a!! assessments
