FATHEIt AND BABE SLAIN BY NEGROES.
(Vk'hor ol tho Child Beaten Into Insensi
bility-Lynching Barely Averted.
Last Monday night, about 7 o'clock,
two young negroes, Buster Uoolsby,
aged eighteen, and his brother, Ximian
Uoolsby, aged fifteen years, called at Hie
residence of Dan Minis, near 1 la/.clhurst,
(?a., and hired to him to chop colton, he
having agreed to give them employment.
They both had ax handles with them
and as Minis wont out in the yard to at
tend to something ono of them Blipped
up behind him and knocked him in HM
hoad. After he had fallen, one of them
stabbed him in tho eye and also cul his
Mrs. Mims, who was in tho house, oil ,
hearing the disturbance rushed out to ,
her husband, and she too was knocked
down. Tho negroes, thinking they had |
killed her, turned their attention to Mr. |
Minis, thereby giving Mrs. Minis time to ,
Mrs. Minis had her baby in her arms
at the time she was knocked down and ,
the shock caused by her fall injured the |
baby so it has since died, while Mrs. ,
Minis was seriously hurt. i
Minis was a young man, the son of ?
.lohn T. Minis, ono of thc most, substan
tial and highly respected farmers in Ap
pling county. Minis had only berni mar
ried a little over one year.
One ?if thc (ioolsby negroes was cap
tured but was "lost" (supposed to have
been lynched), before lie "got away"
he. said a negro preacher put them up to
it. Pour more negroes were arrested as
being accessories to the Minis murder,
lt was thought the negroes would be
lynched, bul cooler heads prevailed, and
upon investigation, it was proven that
two of the negroes arrested knew noth
ing about the crime, and they were
turned loose, thc oilier two, arrested as
accessories to th?1 crime, and the mother
md a brother of the two (ioolsby
negroes, were lodged in jail at Haxley.

Ki I i tors Courier: In reading Tin.
KKOWKK CoiTuiiii of last, week I was
uirprisod lo note the position tho
Draiigchurg Times and Democrat has
recently taken in its censure of our Son
itor, .lohn I,. McLaurin, and, being loca
led as I am, in the capital of our emin
ry, where we can both see and hear the
wents of tho nation's doings, it is ex
.eedingly tiresome to read extracts from
i newspaper of the Times and Demo
..rat's standing in South Carolina jour
lalism, such a belittling paragraph as it
cccntly published. We quote thc arl ide:
"Senator McLaurin ?emus to have a
drong pull willi Dollar Mark Danna,
uni as a natural consequence he is in
ugh favor with President McKinley,
,vho is owned liody and soul by the great
boodler.'" And in conclusion suggests I
bal "he is a traitor to bis people, and
bal the day of reckoning is coining."
Il is evident that thc writer of the
ibove has had no ox per ?enea whatever
n national politics, and bc most surely
n< tares the President of our great llo
iiiblic as a jack of the first water. Il is
ruc that Senator McLaurin, as well the
lenior Senator from our State, is on
friendly terms willi the President, and
be Stale at large should congratulate
Iself upon this fuel alone. Pavois are
fien accorded Representatives of dll?er
iil faith than that of thc administration
iud il is through such friendship as that
I'liioh tho Times and Democrat speaks
f that, many a bill ami resolution linds
(self made into law.
The Rep rc si ni al ives from our Sta ti have
ll done their duty, and no one has been
mic zealous iii furthering tho interests
f bis nal i vc Malo Ib.ui the junior Sena
>r from .south Carolina. Let all such
buggy" stories as Hie one referred lo
hove be forever erased from intelligent
nu nalism, an I instead let. ns lend au
ssisfing band lo those who bave by the
eople's choice been seul lo represent
icm. Wc quite agree with the able
lilor of tbe Carolina Spartan, the
?mes and Democrat should take off the
ead of bis paper and place in lieu there
I "Rebind the Times and Autocrat."
