An Appeal to Judge Lynch.
Speedy J=tioes eted to the George's Vimain.
Special Dispatch to the News and Courier.
BRAwwnvILL, March 1.-As you
have been already advised, an out
rageous assault was perpetrated upon
Mrs. Byrd six miles from George's,
on Saturday morning, by a one-armed
negro. From the description he was
believed to be the same man who
committed a brutal assault and robbery
on an old lady, also named Byrd, a
mile and.* half from this place, on the
4th of February, and who has been
prowling about this section, keeping
the women, both white and colored, in
constant terror. His evil reputation
extended through this section of coun
try fot twenty miles in Colleton and
Orangeburg, and the fear of him was
widespread. He pursued two colored
women only last week.
On Saturday a regular hunt was or
ganit!d-the entire male population
participating. Every road was pick
eted and-the roads thoroughly searched.
At 4 o'clock ytsterday (Sunday)
morning he was captured in the road,
three ailes from the scene of the pre
vious day's outrage, and taken to
Byrd's house, where he was identified
by Mrs. Byrd, and confessed. Some
seventy men were present, and a vote
was taken as to the disposition of the
prisoner. The olored men were in
the majority, and they voted solidly,
with two exceptions, to let the law
take its course. In obedience to this
decision the man, who gave the name
of Louis Kinder, having been va
riouniy known as Moses, Fulton,
Gaillard and Skinner, was taken to
George's and turned over to Trial
Justice ]eid, who piaed him in the
towa. ga dhouse, under a strong
guard. An unsuccessful effort was
made daring the night to take him
out, the attacking party being re

was sent in pursuit. From a hint
received there I took the Branchiville
road, and after fourteea mniles hard

from here. They had the negro
chained by the neck, walking behind
a b,gy, whish, was driven slowly, and
the7 allowed him to ride occasionally.
The party was composed of five men
in tw -buggies and two or three oni

to e. eaed spot in the woods and
kept until night, a number of men
coming here and idling about. Kin

was done by his partner, Isaac Jen

party sent after hin.

but a telegram was received here
stating that the search for him was
unqucessal.Kinder then was taken
by a dark and circuitous route through
the woods to a lonely spot a mile and
a quirter from here, near an old cem
etery, and on the very spot where a
man was hung some fifty years ago.
A meo9f some seventy-five or one

ville, but had been living about King

some months had been continually
prowling about the country at night,
sleeping in the woods by day and ex

last moment he acknowledged that he
had assaulted the elder Mrs. Byrd,
having denied it previously, but
claimed that he deserved death, and
hoped that he had made his peace
At a signal four men seized the
shafts of the buggy and drew it from
under him, giving a drop of two or
three feet, which seemed to break his
neck instantly. He hardly struggled
at all. As well as could be seen in
the darkness he was swung off at half

Kinder, alias Fulton, alias Skinner,
alias Gaillard, was a man apparently
not more than twenty-seven years old,
five feet nine inches in height, slen
derly built, poorly dressed, being
ragged and barefooted, and with a
rather bad expression of countenance.
He seemed to be a man of some edu
cation, speaking correctly and being
able to read and write. Several col.
derisive remarks from the crowd and
some firing off of pistols and cheering
while returning to town were the only
symptoms of disorder.
Kinder attributed his capture to
the loss of a black cat, which he
stated, he had purchased from Gyp
sies, and would have insured him
against being caught or losing at gam

charm consisting of bones and roots
sewed up in buckskin. He was armed
with an immense revolver when taken.

State and Federal Courts.
The Supremacy of the Latter Maintained.
Four important cases were decided
in the United States Supreme Court
at Washington on Monday, each of
which involved a conflict of jurisdic.
tion between State and Federal Courts.
1. Ex parte the Commonwealth of
Virginia, petitioner. This was a peti
tion for mandamus to compel the res
toration of two negroes to the custody
of the State Court from which they
were tried, they had been deprived of
a right secured to them by the Four
teenth Amendment. The Court held
that negroes not being excluded from
juries by the laws of Virginia, the
mere -empaneling of a jury without
any negroes, even for the trial of a
negro, was no cause of complaint.
2. Taylor Strander, plaintiff in error,
versus the State of West Virginia.
This case involved the question of
the constitutionality of the law of
West Virginia excluding negroes from
the jury. - The Court decided that
the law was unconstitutional.
3. State of South Carolina vs. Lem
uel S. Davis. This involved the ques
tion whether a United States officer
indicted in a State Court for murder
while in the alleged diseharge of his
duty was entitled to have his case re
moved to a Federal Court. It was
decided that he had.
4. The Commonwealth of Virginia
and J. D. Coles, petitioners. This
case involved the liability to arrest
and trial in the Federal Courts of a
judge of a State Court, who in the
discharge of his duties as judge was
alleged to have violated the provisions
of the Fourteenth Amendment and
the laws made in pursuance thereof.
The Supreme Court decided that he
was so liable to arreet.
The first three cases were reported
yestsrday, and the fourth is reported
By.Telegraph to the News and Courier.
WAsHINGToN, March 2.-The fa
meus case ex parte the Commonwealth
of'f Virginia and J. D. Coles, petition
ers, has been decided adversely to the
petitioners. This was a petition for a
writ of habeas corpus to bring before
this court the case of Judge Coles, of
Virginia, indicted in the Federal
Court for the western district of that
Statie for violation of the Act of March
4, 1879, in excluding colored citizens
from jury lists on account of race and
This case grows out of the follow
ing facts: Judge Rives, the United
States District Judge for the Western
District of Virginia, directed his
grand jury, some time since, to find
indictments against, all judges of the
State of Virginia within their district
wherever it should appear that suieb
judges had never at any time placed
negroes upon the lists of jurors made
out by them. In the absence of evi
dence as to the motive of the judge
thus failing to place negroes on the
lists, he thought it proper to assume
in- such case that there had been a
purpose to discriminate on account of
race and color. Pursuant to this
charge of. Judge Rives indictments
were found in the Federal Court
against certain State judges of Vir
ginia, and various judges, including
Judge Coles, have been arrested and
held for trial. Judge Coles, not jd
mitting that the United States Court
has any jurisdiction of the matter
charged in the indictment, or that he
is amenable to Judge Rives for the
proper performance of his judicial
functions, by advice of counsel, refused
to give bail. This case, by common
consent, was made a test case.
-This Court holds that the act under
which Judge Coles was indicted is
fully authorized by the Thirteenth
and Fourteenth Amendments to the
Constitution, and that it was Judge
Cole's duty to obey that act, and if he
failed to do so he was properly liable
to indictment in the Federal Court.
The petition for a writ of habeas cor
pus is therefore denied. Justice
Strong delivered the opinion.
Justice Field, in a dissenting opin
ion, which was concurred in by Justice
Clifford, holds that the act under
which the petitioner was indicted, so
far as it relates to jurors in the State
Courts, is unconstitution~al and void,
and, even if it were not, the indict
ment describes no offence under it,
but is void on its face. He holds that
nothing can be found in the Constitu
tion or its amendments which autho
rizes any interference by Congress with
the States in the administration of
their government and the enforce
ment of their laws with raspect to
any matter over which jurisdiction
was not surrendered to the United
States. Nothing, in his judgment,
could have a greater tendency to de
stroy the independence and autonomy
of the States and reduce them to a
humiliating and degrading dependence
upon the central government, engen
der constant irritation and destroy
that domestic tranquility which it was
one of the objects of the Constitution
to insure, than the doctrine asserted
in this case-that Congress can exer
cise coercive authority over the judi
ial officers of the States in the dis
charge of their duties under State
laws. It will be only another step in
the same direction toward consolida
tion, when it assumes to exercise sim
tice Fields says that those who regard
the independence of the States in all
their res, rved powers as .sse:1ti.d1 to
the successful maintenance of our
form: of government, cannot. fail to
view with the gravest apprehension
for the future any indictment in a
court of the Unittd States of a
judicial officer of a State for the man
ner in which he has discharged his
duties under her laws, and of which
she makes no complaint.
The proceeding is a gross offence to
the State. It is an attack upon her
sovereiguity in a matter over which
she has never surrendered her juris
The doctrine which sustains it, car
ried to its logical results, would de
grade and sink her to the level of a
mere municipal corporation. For if
Congress can punish an officer of a
State for the wanner in which he dis
charges his duties under her laws, it
can fix the nature and extent of the
punishment. It may imprison fur
life or punish by removal from office.
To these results Justice Field thinks
that the doctrines held by the majority
of the Court necessarily lead.
The Last Legislature.
The last legislature has passed into
history as the weakest and most ex
travagant body that has assembled in
Columbia for many years. Its crown
ing distinction was that it got through
its session (not its work) quick. From
the first day it assembled to the final
adjournment, through both regular
and extra sessions, there was a cou
tinual howl all along the line for a
short session. The time was con
sumed in devising and furthering new
schemes for the impoverishment of
the people. In addition to the cur
rent expenses of the government,
$191,000 was voted to the agricultu
ral college, $200,000 in work and
$10.000,000 in water power to the
Columbia Canal; $15,000 to the
Charleston Canal; $3,000 on the
Blair estate in York county was given
up ; thousands of dollars of hack taxes
on the Blue Ridge Road were re.
mitted ; the Catawba Canal was given
away; the tax bill improperly passed
at an expense to the State of twenty
thousand dollars in round numbers
and so from the opening to the close
of its career the legislature of 1879-'80
so stumbled along. Compared with
such a body, the Wallatce House
stands out like a star of the first mag
nitude. If any single measure passed
by the late legislhture has added a
fraction to the sum of human happi
ness or in any way alleviated the con
dition of the State we do not know
what it was. The legislation has not
only been ill-advised but it has been
so crude that it will take years to cor
rect the error made in many of the
acts passed. The act under which
the railroad tax case at the late term
of the court in this county was found
upon legal investigation to be contra
dictory in almost every one of its sec
tions and so with a number of other
acts that are now the law of the hand.
In the new fee bill regulating the
costs of public officers there has been
a marked increase of costs in some
cases and a reduction in others below
a living limi.it. .All of these errors
have bee.i the result of a desire to
make fair weather with the voting
masses and to gain the applause of an

The Southern States since the
war have been treated by the gen
eral government as conquered pro
vinces. After expending millions
of money and thousands of lives to
force them back in the Union, the
Northern States, Democratic as
well as Republican, do all in their
power to keep them in subjection.
Any attempt by Southern states
men to control national sentiment,
any attempt to take a leading or
prominent part in nationsi legisla
tion, is looked upon by the North
with extreme jealousy. - For the
South to express her preference for
any man is to injure his prospects
in the eyes of the North. Our
Congressmen are expected to sit
quietly in their seats like figure
heads, and let the "North" run the
government. Our . position is a
truly humiliating and galling one.
But it need not be always thus.
The South has it in her power to
reverse- the order of things;. she
can do it without any revolution,
and so quietly that she will scarcely
know when the change comes. She
has only to use "those means which
God and Nature have placed in her
hands." These means are her ex
tensive, ancultivated fields, and her
natural resources. She has played
second fiddle to the North for years
and years. She has furnished their
factories with cotton at a low price
and has bought their goods at a
high price,. diminishing her own
wealth and adding to that of her
rival in both transactions. This
will all b3e changed, and will be
changedia - -ew- years. - She has
every facility for manufacturing her
own cotton ; and she can break
down every cotton factory in every
Northern State if she chooses to do
so. Every factory that she estab
lishes increases her population and
her wealth, and diminishes corres
pondingly the wealth and popula
tion of the North. This change is
bound to come ; the laws of trade
and business will bring it about.
Another great advantage the
North has maintained over the
South is her shipping interests.
She has lines of trading vessels
running to all parts of the world
from Boston, New York and Phila
delphia. In the course of time the
South will have her seaport towns,
with lines running direct to the
mercantile centers. The produc
tions of the South and West will
seek Southern ports of exit, and
her imports will come in the same

Merchants Excursion to Char
The leading wholesale merchants
of Charleston have arranged for an
excursion to their city for the bene
fit of their customers throughout
the State. They have secured cheap
railroad fare and reduced hotel
rates. Tickets can be obtained any
time between the 10th and 20th,
good to return within one week
from day of purchase. The fare
going and returning from stations
in this County is as follows: Po
maria, $3.55 ; Prosperity, $3.80;
Newberry, $4.00; Helena, $4.05;
Chappell's, $4.60. The hotel rates

Cheap Printing Paper.
A large number of petitions have
been sent to Congress asking a re
peal of the tariff on white printing
paper and printing materials. A
bill has been introduced to that
effect, which ought certainly to
pass. Printers are only a small
fraction of those who would be
benefitted by cheap paper. Every
family that takes a newspaper is
interested ; for at the present prices
of printing paper, the publishers
will either have to raise their prices
of subscription, or "bust."
We see it stated that the passen
ger fare on the Air Line R. R., will
be reduced from 5 to 3 cents a mile
the first of April. We believe that
cheap rates of travel would pay all
the roads. People would take more
pleasure trips if it didn't cost so
much. See how many go on ex
cursions to Charleston and the
mountains. It is not because of
the crowd, for a majority that go
would prefer no crowd ; but it is
because of the cheap rates.
