Old Uncle Joe !
Old uncle Joe Haddon, well known
in Edgefield, died at the home of his
son-in-law, four miles from Greenwood,
on last Tuesday, at the advance age ol'
91 years. The greater portion ol' old
Joe's life wa3 spent on the South Caro
lina railway. He was an Englishmen
by birth and an irishman by parentage,
came over from the old country, with
the first engine ever run upon that lins,
more "han sixty years ago.

farmers have. Some of them, however,

this plan there can be no objection, for

One of those romances in real life
abjut which we often hear and seldom
meet with, has come toa young lady in
Greenville, whose beauty and accom
plishments are only equalled by he
'modesty and genuine worth. Mr. El
drel S. \ddison, of Ninty-Six, who :s
related to quite a number of people in
Greenville, has been paying court to
the young lady aforesaid, who is ]\Iiss
Annie J. .Roberts, daughter of the late
: CoU Thoa. ?. Roberts, and wno has a
I hosi, of friends and relatives in this
city. Mr. Addison proved successful in
his wooing, and the time lixed for the
marriage was Wednesday next, 4th of
March, to which the immediate family
and a few intimate friends only were
invited. The expected groom made his
usunal visit to our city prior to the time
set for the approaching nuptials, and
left here on Tuesday morning for his
home at Ninety-Six. He is one of the
most successful and prosperous farm
ers in that neighborhood, and noted as
a cattle raiser. He had sold a lot of
cattle, and on reaching home was de
livering them to the purchaser, when a
stampede took place among them, and
in the confusion Mr. Addison was run
over and knocked down, resulting in a
dislocation of his knee which was al- j
ready crippled. He was taken to the j
house of a friend, where he was kiudly
cared for, and information of the acci
dent was sent to his friends in Green
ville, who hoped that the injuries were
not very serious, but letters the next
day gave the discouraging statement
that he was very severely wounded and
was sutfering intensely. Miss Roberts
at once made preparations to be with
her affianced in his affliction, and yes
terday morning in company with a la
dy friend she went to Ninety-Six.- j

To Your Honor Ernest Gary Judge
P;-??sitlinjit Ibis the March
Tenn of Court 1896:
We the Grand Jury for said
county beg leave to submit below
as our presentment the report of
our special connu i tee :
Gentlemeu of the Grand Jury
Your special commi!tee, to inves
tigate the books ot the diffirent j
county officiais, have submitted
reports at fach term of the cour'
since our appointment, but on ac
count of the delay of the Sheriff's
returns on tax executions and the
Treasurer's final settlement we
could not make our report com
plete in November.
Commencing in the office of the
Treasurer wi th the fiscal year '92
and '93 we ascertained that the an
nual settlement with the Treasurer
had been made from the origin*]
assessment furnished by the Audi
tor, and knowing that money had
been collected from parties whose
property had not been assessed, we
proceeded to the laborious task of
aggregating the stubs of every re
ceipt giveu in the county for mon
ey collected as taxes. We find that
the sum of the stubs amount to
$1043.23 in excess of the amount
that had been charged lu the orig
For the fiscal year '93 and '94
the same state of things exists, and
with a similar investigation as we
made of the previous years, we find
that i he Treasurer had collected
$508.37 more than was charged to
him by the asseasuieLt thus mak
ing for the two years 1551.60
that has been collected by the
Treasurer and has not been ac
counted fer. These amounts for
both years were collected from
parties whos^ property had i.ol
been assessed, but voluntarily came
forward to pay their taxes. Upon
examining the settlement sheets
we find no additionals reported.
The present Treamrcir has air adv
collected from a similar source
atout six hundred dollars and han
the amounts and names of partie?
properly entered upon a book for
this purpose; this fact itseif bears
out the correctness of our exami
The lax execution:* are given cut
by the Sheriff to a lot ol' Deputies;
and in a great many cases to men
unworthy of rv:h trust as the facts
below will si v. From various
townships wit mt expense and
with very little ort we have the
following facts: Higgins School

possession the receipt of the Deou

In Pine GiOve Township *he tax
of Sophia Burt is marked nulla
bona and we have the Deputy J. Q.
Cogburu's receipt showing that he
collected $3.00 from the p.aid So
phia Burt. In MobJey Town

on the books nulla bona. We
have the receipt <f W. L. Rhoden
Deputy for $9.35 collected from

Wood was given the tax execu
tions for Collier Township. Execu
tions were given to him against
himself and his brother T. B. Wood.
Instead of payiug his he marked it
as having beeu paid by receipt 1170
of the Treasurer and he marked T.
F. Wood's with the receipt of
Treasurer 5053. We examii.ed
these stubs and they show that the
receipts for ihese numbers were for
other persons aud that Wood ha^
defrauded the county. This same
Deputy had an execution against a
negro Lewis Holmes, sold his clock
for taxes, bought ita d he or his
father has the cock today and re
turned Lewis Holmes "can't be
These facts gathered without ex
pense convinced us that something
should be doue, and not wishing to
assume the impossibility of involv
ing the county in the expense of
investigating every Towuship in
the county, decided to investigate
one Township thoroughly. We
employed a reliable mau and sent
him to Meriwether Towuship, with
no intimation from any one tba
it was wot se than any of the 40
Townships and School Districts in
the county. We find in Meriweth
er Township on the execution
'?ook, Jesse Schultz marked non
est, nulla bona ''cant find," and
wo have the receipt of the Deputv,
W. E. Bussey, for $8.00 collected
from him for taxes and p> ualties.
Tom Johnston is returned on the
books non est, nulla bona, "can't
find" and we have the receipt of
W. E. Bussey that he collected
$5.65 from him, Jack J ?hnsou and
Richard Johnson are both n-turned
on the books non est, nulla bon:?,
and we have the receipt of W. E.
Bussey showing that he c llecte t
$5.65 from Jack Johnson and $5.52
from Richard Johnson. Oliver Pat
ton is returned non est, nulla bona,
and we have Bussey's receipt show
ing that he collected $5.40 from
him. We have positive evidence
that Mr. Bushey collected in Meri
wether Township more than 30 ex
ecutione and returned them all
non est nulla bona, and that more
than $150.00 was collected by him
in this Township ol' which not one
cent was turned over to tho coun
ty. The Sheriff certainly ought to
have known that Hussey was not
making a proper eottlemen* and
should have refused to accept bis
returns without investigating the
matter. We have given a thorough
investigation of this Towuship and
from it you can judge the balance
of the County.
December the 5th '93 the County
Commissioners approved a claim
in favor of J. C. Kinard for $3.40,
4 shovels, the claim wai entered

Since our investigation com

errors, irregularities, and shortages
to the amount of $3248.95, some of
this amount has already been re
turned to the Treasurer and all of
it will go back to our Treasurer if
our county gets its dues, and. there
is very little doubt but what, the

is not included in this $3248.95.
