TWO NEGROES PUT TO DEATH FOR
THE MURDER OF MRS. ATKINSON.
Another Negro Has Probably
Also Perished for the kaine
Cause-Two Hundred and Fifty
Armed White Men Present at
The first inquest was adjourned
to accumulate more evidence and
to give time for the angry passions
of an indignant community to
become pacified. The adjournment
was until to-day, and wien the
church doors were opened full}'
two hundred and fifty white men
were present. They came from
miles around. There were young
and old, plain faruers, rich plan
ters, even the country plough boys,,
and the conspicuous feature was
that they were armed, heavily
armed. It may have been prudent
for arms to be brought along, and
it may have been with bloody
intent, most likely both. But it
would be hard indeed to imagine
a more miscellaneous assortment
of arms; there were shotguns,
hammerless, breachloading and
muzzle, rifles and sixteenshoters,
even the old cap gun was there,
and pistols that stuck out of I
pockets.and belts were as thick as
In the centre of the church
building Magistrate Glover had
arranged a table for the clerk, and
around were grouped the members
THE JURY OF INQUEST,
who were as follows: P. B.
Latham, J. F. Adkins, W. J.
Barling, R. W. Glover, John Floyd,
M. D. Lyon, ThoB E. Miller, B. F.
Renew, Wm Hudson, Tom N. Tim
merman, Jas I. Reece, Dan Mc
Lendon. The jury was a repres
entative one, disposed to get at
facts, but to some extent imbued
with the prevailing sentiment,
although it did all possible to save
At the first tearing considerable
evidence was taken, and to-day
from 10 until 5; with half an hour
recess, additional testimony was
taken. It was all the evidence of
negroeb from the neighborhood.
At first it looked very blue for
Andrew Lee. Jim Mackey swore
that Andrew Lee had told him he
killed Mrs Atkison. He wove a
splendid story. The jury put the
matter to the crucial test. Lee
and Mackey were brought face to
:.Jdce. Lee was charged by Mackey
with killing Mrs Atkinson. The
fire of Lee's retort, his denial and
his refusal to criminate anyone
else with false evidence, appealed
to the jury and all present, and in
the few moments Lee faced his
sworn accuser he purged himself
of guilt. All along the crowd in
the church building thought Jim
Mackey guilty, guilty, and suspect
ed his lies as being directed towards
self-preservation. Luther Sullivan
i?0: bl?->s Ho t.ZT--:d other* ' ?as ?
ana WitucDO anet muib?. --
his evidence, and all put him about
the place of the place of the killing
at the exact hour. ?
. Then the jury and the crowd
concurred that Mackey and Sulliv
an "knew something" abaut tl??*
killing they knew who did it, and
they were in the plot, for the
general impression as gathered is
that Wash Mackey fathered apian
to kill Mr Atkinson and (hereby
free the neighborhood of its white
citizen, and that Luther Sullivan,
^who had just returned honae, was
used to do the killing, and that
other were in the plot ; that Jim
Mackey was a leader and would
have done the killing, but the lot
fell to another. Squire Green and
Andrew Lee were at first implicated
but they satisfied the jury of their
innocence. Lee's candor saved
Bim, and when -someone cried at
the height of the colloquy between
Lee and Mackey, "Give them gunB
and let them fight it out." Lee
spoke up and said, "Yes, give us
guns and I'm willing to fight it
out." Lee claimed the protection
of the jury for his disclosures, and
was assured no harm would come
to him while in their charge.
The evidence jogged tediously
along. Finally about 5 o'clock all
the witnesses present had been ex
amined and the impromptu Court
was cleared for the jury. Jim
Mackey was brought in for pump
ing. He told another story, and
this time he said Luther
Sullivan had done the shooting.
First it was Green, then Lee, and
last Sullivan. Then Sullivan was
brought before the jury to face
Mackey. He was told of his
trouble and then swore that Wash
Mackey had proposed that they
kill Mr Atkinson, as he was the
only white man about and was
always watching them, and that
Jim Mackey did the killing, that
he saw him behind the tree waiting
for the Atkinsons.
Meanwhile the crowd, fully 250
strong, was outside waiting. Six
o'clock came and ther<
was no sign of a veidict, no sign o ;
a conculusion; the cross examina
tion was still progressing. Seven
o'clock come, and the situation the
same. The two negroes were
weaving cords around each other's
necks. The crowd was getting
impatient, very impatient. They
wanted action, a finality, any sort
of a conclusion. There were many
who came for vengeance for the
blood of Mrs Atkinson. They
swore they would have it. They
were willing to wait on a verdict,
but there must be verdict. Peace
emissaries mingled about, but to
no good with nome, Then about 8
o'clock another iuse was tried.
The men patiently waiting outside
were to be appealed to go home and
let the law take its course, and
while this was going on the princi
pals were to be slipped out of the
back doer and secreted, and in time
be taken to the jail at Edgefi?ld
Great and energetic were the ap
peals that nothing be dDne, as the
time was not yet ripe.
The Rev Mr Mealing got up on
the church stops first and pleaded
that the prisoners be allowed to go
Mr J. Mouson Smith, who
conduted the examinations, begged
that the casa be adjourned, and
that all go home and justice would
be had. There need be no fear of
the guilty escaping.
The Rev Henry McMillan made
a pathetic appeal. He said he had
wept to day for the dead, but there
was no humanity or righteousness
in vengeance. The crowd was not
couvinced of the guilt of anyone,
and fuller justice would be done
The crowd said he was a preacher,
and a man went up to him, and
taking him by the hand, said:
"Mr McMillan, I love you, but I
can't do what you ask. I'm think
ing of my wife at home."
Sheriff Ouzts said he appealed
as a frierd and as sheriff that no
harm be done the prisoners. He
would protect the prisoners to the
bitter end, and he appealed to his
friends, for they were all such, to
remember the position- it would
place him in if ill came to his
prisoners. He asked for God's
sake that the negroes be left alone,
if for no other reason.
Voice: "Sheriff tell us about
that poor woman over yonder in
Mr N. GEvans said no one had
gone fuither than he to find the
guilty parties. He had woiked
day and night to that end? and he
wanted his friends to let the law
take its course. It would be unfor
tunate if some innocent person
6hould be killed. The guilty had
not yet been fixed, and by waiting
all of those implicated could be
caught, when to rush into lynching
now would spoil the whole thing.
Let it rest for a ff.w hours. The
case can be tried in thirty days,
and he was satisfied the guilty
would suffer. .If not. then would
be the time to act.
This advice, however, did not
suit the crowd at all.
Mr P. B. Lanham, foreman of the
jury, 6aid that that the jury had
notyet sufficient evidence on which
to fix the responsibly on any
particular pertons. He appealed
to the manhood of his fiieuds to
let the law take it3 course and to
sustain Sheriff Ouzts.
Voice: "All they want is to
make speeches, and before the}'
know some one elso around here
will be killed before Saturday."
Representative Strom, Ex
Member of the Legislature Getzen,
Glover, Sheriff Ouzts, Dr Robert
Mackay and many others circulated
in the crowd, and begged the men
to go home and let matters rest.
Some did go home, but they went
very slowly. The plan of taking
the prisoners out o? the back door
failed, as men were on the lookout
on all sides of the building.

refuge of the church and wanted

At one time a plan was proposed
to slip the negroes out of a window
or door and by dividing up get
them out of reach before the crowd
could discover the ruse, but all of
these plans failed. One leader
got up on the staircase and said
he washed his hands of the whole
business, as his efforts did not seem
to be appreciated in the Republican
section. He asked friends to
retire with him. They nicked up
and started away, but it is said
t^ey came back to the scene. Dark
ness, home duties, disgust and de
lay, uncertainty as to whether the
prisoners had been slipped away,
and the appeals all combined to
reduce the crowds.
About 9.30 o'clock, when it was
thought the pleadings had had the
desired effect, and the crowd was
Etfuch thinned, the three chief
prisoners had their hands tied so
as to appeal in their helplessness
to the crowd. A strong guard
with 15 or 20 men, surrounded the
prisoners. Thoy marched out of

and followers was decreasing,those

road to Edgefield. When the
smoke cleared the bodies of Luther
Sullivan.and Jim Mackey lay in
the middle of the road. Wash
Mackey had gotten beyond, he
barely escaped the repeated firiug,
and was perhaps dead in the straw
?round the road. .^It was nearly
they must have been killed a: tu<^
first fire. Mackey was motionless,
but Sullivan, who wa? a big, burly
negro, gasped as the crowd went
up to see the dead men after the
killing. A souvenir or two was
taken, and the crowd went back to
the church to get their teas and if
possible find Wash Mackey, the
supposed originator of the Atkin
son, murder and the reporters made
for Augusta in a pouring rain.
Andrew Lee and Squire Green,
who were also under suspicion, and
who would have fared badly, wore
taken away by white men. All of
the other negroes implicated or
held as witnesses were sent home
early in the evening.
SOME OF THE TESTIMONY.
Luther Sullivan was the brother
in-law of his brother victim, Jim
Mackey, and the son-in-law of
Wash Macke}r, eo it will be seen it
was very much of a family affair.
Sullivan admitted that he had his
gun with him on the afternoon of
the killing and that he went hunt
ing. He said that he left his gun
at home late. He asked a negro
woman, Cora Williams, where Mr.
John was, meaning Mr. Atkinson.
Lena Stuart told an old colored
mau that Luther had had a mighty
narrow escape. This Lena denied.
There were a number of such
straws, which pointed directly to
Sullivan and Jim Mackey. The
evidence at the first hearing and
Sullivan's statement, together with
the general feeling, implicated
Wash Mackey. That these men
were mixed up in the killing was
evident, and they would no doubt
have been convicted. With things
as they were it is not surprising
that the over-wrought feelings took
such a course to vent themselves.
There were some who even said
such things were needed every fif
teen years to impress the negro
with his position and make him
more careful about assassinations.
It was in this vici/jity that the Ned
Tennent riot occurred. For four
mile?? square it is said there is no
white family except that, of Mr.
Atkinson's, whose wife was killed
in bis stead. For ten miles iu one
direction it is said there is not an
other white family. It ivas brought
out at the inquest that Jim Mackey
was au applicant for the "position
of postmaster at Lenoir and for the
postal route there, both of which
are held by Mr. Atkinson. He de
nied the charge.
There, are many detaiis, perhaps,
which could be brought out ina
more extended article, which
could only be possible with more
time, but the story is given in all
its extent. The whole fact of the
matter is that a large number of
men went to Republican church
that morning fully* determined to
kill the guilty. They were not
mad, but determined, and no per-'
suasion could have been effective.
They said they had eeen too much
of negroes proving alibis, and it
was too far for them to go to court
to see that things went right, and
meanvhile it was dangerous not to
act for the sake of an example. It
is thought there will bea complete
calm after to-day's storm, and that
all will be quiet hereafter.-Au
