"i f it is dishonoroble for elen. ilagood to
dei!ect his line to Greonville, he is already
dishonnred, for he has promised to do that
very Ithing.-Greenville News."
General lagood has made no such prom
ise. He is too honorable a man to promise
anything he knows he has not the power to
fulfill. lie has promised to lay the Green
ville proposition before the hoard of Direc
tors for their action and, perl.ps, to use his
Influence in favor of the deflection. This is
all, and the A'ews does General ilagood a
great injustice when it says that h - has
promised to do a thing that he as no an
thority for doing. Elsewhere in this issue
we publish, by authority of General Ha.
g'od im"elf, his position on the question.
Read and compare it with what the News
"Our friends in Pickens have allowed
'homselves to be betrayed by unfounded
alarm into ill cotnside'red action, if the
gathering at Easley and the adoption of
resolutiuns can be called action. They
mjust know enough of Gen. H[agood to un
derst and that he in not a tuan to he swerved
from his course by any such proceeding as
that of Saturday.-Greenville News."
The News would have its readers believe
:hat. General Hagood has been assailed by
the people of Pickens. Nothing is wider of
the truth. General Hagood is respected and
a<imired for his noble qualities of head and
heard as muen in Pickens as he is in Green
ville, or any other county except., perhaps.
his own county of Barnwell. The News
stowever, by its continued assertions that
oueral llagood has agreed to divert the
toad Ly way of Greenville, when such is
not the fact., would make people believe
t sat lie has knowingly excceded his )owee s or
a ithority for Greenville's especial benefit.
The people of Pickens and Ea-,ley know
and knowing them, will dare

GOen. llgood in a recent private teia
~a, expresses regret at the uneasitness ex
cited at Easley and Pickens by the an
nouncnement oaf negotiatlons with Green-.
viile.'to oarry the Carollina, Cuanaberlandai
Gap aund Chicago Railway by the latter
place, andi desires us publicly to correct the
misapprehension upon which he says it is
founded. The proposition as entertained
to go by Greenvie, is simply to die erge to
that extetnt so much of thte line as lies he
tween Williamston and Easley. It will not
affect Easley, Pickenms or any ot her point
named in the charter, as points tharoughm
which the road is t.o run. in discharge of
his duty as Presidenat, he received nad rent
ponded to overtures fromn Greenville, to
muake that city a point upon the general
line, and he is now engaged in get ting these
negotiations into shape to lay before the
Dlirectors of the Railway, in whom after
survey and est imates lby tae Ohiof Engin..
ser lies tihe power of tmaking the necessary
diivergence. Gen. ilagood says he does not
desire to forestall; the decision of the Di

Some of the people of Greenville, besides
Mesars. Mauldin and Fetguson, told us, f
"truthful James," that the proposition of b
General lagood provided for the rights of I
way from Greenville to Ensley. Citizens
of this County, besides the editor of this
paper, had seen the proposition. So some- (
body besides Dr. Mlauldin, Mr. Ferguson
and the editor of Tits SKNItNAL most cer.
tainly saw the proposition, the assertion it
of 'truthful James" to the contrary not- P
withstanding. it hy was it not necessary
for the pr.ople of Greenville to know that
they were required to provide the ways and f
means to secure the right of way fron
Greenville to laley? If the committee
failed to inform (he people of Greenmillo of
this fact, did they nut in good faith toward
the good people whom they represented?
We will let the commit tee and ''tinthful
Janes" answer the question. "Truthful
James" siys that General iiagood promised t
to run the road by Greenville if certain r
conditions were complied with, and that
those comlitions have been complied with.

iade sensible of the fact that quite a num
ter of parties front a distane, for nearly
di of them came from a distance, and some
if them, their names not known to any one
-reregtt, had been drinking in the outskirts
>f the congregation, some were drunk and
teveral minor disturbances had taken place
it the spring and elsewhere; there seemed
o te quite a supply of the ardent on hand
and many had indulged freely. Whether
hey brought it with them or procured it
en the grounds is not certainly known,
yet, some were so far under the influence
ass not to be able to control themselves and
it riot was the reeult. The parties engaged
in the riot were from Greenville, some from
the city, others from the county. Th%ir
names so far obtained are Joe Dull, Doc
Tanner, W. Press Tanner, Silas Tanner,
J. HI. 1lawkins and Petus Moore. Others
are implicated. They commenced tihe riot
b y accusing a boy, Weldon McAdans, a
little son of George Modn.ims not yet. six.
teen years old, of being a spy sent to watch
them. He denied it. They then astaulted
him, cursing and abuseing him, anal finally
attacked him with rocks and clubs and
knocked him down wah a rock. He rose,
drew his knife and stabled Silas Tanner,
the man that knocked him down, inflicting
a serious wound. All this time they were
yelling, cursing and blackguarding in the
most profane and filthy language, too low
to be utered here. It made one think of a
down the country drunken political negro
row, so vu gar was their language and eo
ungentlemanly their conduct. Perhaps there
never was such an outrage perpetrated on a
civilized people, for all this took place in
Lite presence of a large concourse of ladies
and children who heard their vulgar lan
guage and witnessed their behavious. Some
of them cursed the church oflicials and re
fused to give their nantes. Quiet was re
stored by the older maer. present. Among
them was NIcEIroy Jemison Dr. W. T. Field
T. P. Looper, Roswell lill and others,. All
honor is due to the people of this section.
Under the circumstances and at any other
place they could not have been control'I.
but, they remembered where they were at,
and conducted themselves in the most or
derly way, not willing to vio'Ale the law'.
The people far and n ear, feel themselves
outraged, the cry is, "bring them to js
