select Ku Klux.
YORK VILLE, S. C., November 1
Every day, there M a fresh arriva
frightened and repentant Ku Klux
the country, who come in on foot,
horse back or in wagons drawn by n
to report themselves to Major Me
make confession of all or a part of"
they know about the Klan, and ask 1
tn go home, promising not to ran :
and to report, again whenever sent
The numb"* aroled in this mann
now over th' e hundred. The par
injunction these men get from the M
or District Attorney is usually: "
go home, and stay there, and mind ;
own business, and when you're wai
you'll be sent for. If you haven't
ail you know, it will be the worse
you, for it will all colite out before
get through." The troubled Ku K
is usually much relieved at this,
says: "'Thank you. Major," and shu
to the door, fumbling his dirty
slouched hat, and starts for home wi
great weight off his miud. Wheo
left his log cabin tn the morning,
feared he might sleep in the jail i
night and many nights to come, and
goes back to his slatternly, snuff dipr
wife and troop of ragged, dirty, yell
faced children with a lighter heart t!
he ha* had for thc past three weeks
Occasionally, a man does not esc
so easily Previous confession? si
that he has not told the truth, and t
instead o having been only a pas
ember of the order, obliged to join
his own protection, he has been activ
engaged in raiding. The Major ss
quietly: "I am very sorry, sir, bi
shall have to send you to jail. I kt
more abott your doings than you se
to yourself," and he steps to the d<
calls a guard, and says: "Corporal, ti
this mao to jail and deliver him
Captain Ogden." Thc Ku Kin:
marched off, and a visible gloom cot
over the countenances of his friei
waiting outside as he passes throu
It sometimes happens that a mao vi
comes io with a plausibly made upsti
is astonished to find that M jor Mer
knows his whole history, the names
all his acquaintances, and of ev<
member oi the Klan to which he
longed. No sooner has he told his na
thau thc Major talks to him somcwl
in this way : "You are the mao I ha
been wanting to see for some time. Y
live on the Howell's Ferry road a
belong to the Rattlesnake Klan. Y
were tu the raid wheu Jim Williai
was killed. Now, I don't ask you
tell anything or make any promises, h
if you wish to make a statement, y
can do so." The poor devil forgets t
lies he had invented and blurts out t
There are hundreds of men, howev<
who were forced into the Order agait
their will Some were brutally whipp
before they could be made to join. 0
man was set astride a steer and whipp
for five miles along the road to ti
gatheriug place of the Klan. By ti
time he arrived there he was ready
take the oath. A great many of tl
confessions are like this:
"The whippings aud killings we
goin* on all about our par; of the couotr
and it j is' 'peered like as if n J man w
safe. I was mighty skeered for fe
thty'd enQie oo me, for there'd bet
threats made agin me, and one nig
Jim Brown he come to my house at
said as how if 1 dniut join the Ku Kin
they was a goin' to make a raid on m
and I'd git u*ed mighty rough ; so
don - joined so as I could live in pcac
But. Major, I never believed in it n<
how, aud I never went on no rai
'Pears iike as though they didn't tru
me or want me along when any devi
ment was goin' on."
They are a hard looking set of mci
these self convicted Ku Klux tin
throng about the post commander
office; but they are not as ill-looking j
their comrades io jail, who will not cot
fes-; who insist that they are'as ionocet
aa the dead," and who never heard thei
wa any such thing as Ku Klux ant
tbey were arrested. The average whit
man of South Carolina is the poorc
specimen ot the Caucassian race I hav
ever seeu on either side of the Atlantii
Thc most discouraging feature abut
him is that he shows no desire to im
prove his condition. What can be ex
pected from a man who will not t&k
the trouble to put a window in hi
house, and who keeps his door shut b
putting a "chunk" of wood against i
because he is too shiftless to wLittl
ut a latch or a button. Brutal, co*
ardly, and inconceivably ignorant, he i
a Ku Klux by nature. There are, c
course, a few intelligent and worth
men sprinkled over the ountry, or th
semblance of civilized society would nc
have been possible; and these men i
the old time controlled the lower a
absolutely as did the Scottish chiel
their ciaos. Whenever, in this Statt
such men have opposed the Ku Kin:
organization it never had any headway
Unfortunately, in this county, and ii
Spartan burg, Union and Chester, thea
men, with exceptions so few as not to b
worth mentioning, all joioed the Order
some from ohoice, others through feat
Of the latter class we had a good ex
ample yesterday, io old 'Squire Hope,
venerable and sensible man of 70, wbi
was initiated by his brother justice o
the peace, 'Squire Brown, who told tba
the old men must join to control th
young, who were getting too wild
Brown, however, ia shown to have been
himself a raider, and one of his tons wat
the chief of a Klan.
It is scarcely an exaggeration to ia]
that the organisation embraced th<
whole white voting popuhition of th<
cour.try. Major Merrill concludes, i
his six moDths' bard work io invest
ting the conspiracy, that of the 2,
white voters the are not 200 who 1
not been initiated, and so Bunei
were the active members that thei
no doubt that the Grand Chief or Cyc
could any time in the spring or sam
have assembled in twenty-four ho
time over 1,000 mounted men,
armed with guns and revolvers, i
formed io the disguise of the Or
and as thoroughly obedient to his cc
mands as disciplined soldiers. If
organization of this strength in a sit
county is not a conspiracy of suffic
magnitude to warrant the General G
eminent in taking it in hand it is
easy to see what would be. Forty
Klans are know a lo have existed
xvrk county. .Some of these h
fanciful or ferocious names, such as
Rattlesnakes, the Tigers, the WI
Panthers, the Black Panthers,
White Rangers, the Pilots, thc Avi
.rers, &c, and others took the name:
their chiefs or of thc localities wh
they were formed. Each Klan elec
its own chief, his lieutenant, ar d twe
three "night ha<?ks," who were couri
to notify to the members gatherings
the Klan, and to communicate with
central authority in York vi I le. All
members had pistols and guo$i, mi
had Winchester repeating ri es, whi
there is reason to believe, were bouj
in New York, with funds raised th<
for the p ;rpose. Eight thousand
these arm? are known to have b<
brought to South Carolina since the 1
Klux troubles b:gan. Most of thc ti
who now possess these guns never
their lives had money enough at c
time to buy one for they cost $40
850 each, and it is certain that th<
that were not stolen from the ne
militia were given to them by soi
body. They were all well supplied wi
thc peculiar ammunition thc guns i
quired. The discipline of the Klans v
severe. At Limestone Spring,
Spartanburg county, a whipping p<
was set up, where disobedient racuibt
were flogged. The word of the ch
was law to his Klan, and the order
the Grand Chief was hw to his chie
In all ordinary cases of whipping a
abusing negroes, and disciplining th<
Klaus, the chiefs acted on their oi
responsibility : bit when any importa
enterprise was contemplated the pl
was laid by the Grand Chief and 1
Council, and orders dispatched by "nig
hawks" to thc ;hiefs, who were r
quired to co operate, to make a dct:
from their Klais and mar h o ti
rendezvous at an hour appointed. Thi
when the railroad WES torn up, la
March, to prevent the troops from cot
ing herc, and thc raid to kill the Couo
Treasurer was a ade, about -00 mi
from half a dozeu or more diff re
Klans were assembled, ou 24 hoot

When the negroes were taken fro
Union jail and murdered February la.
500 Ku Klux were assembled at I
hours' notice, tinny riding 30 mil
over Winter roa<.!s to the rendezvoui
and so perfect was the discipline th

DO knowledge of the presence of th
great body of armed men it the litt
village. When Captain Jim Willian
was hung in this county, three Kial
were ordered to commit the murder.
They met at the rendezvous ia an "ol
pine field," and vrhen they were assen
bled, Dr. Brattor: of this village a
peared with orders from thc Grand Chi*
to take command. No one but hirnse
and the chiefs knew what was to t
done, or where they were to go. H
marched the party to William's housi
and when thc poor victim was take
from the arms of his shrieking wifi
ordered the men to hang him, and pn
duced the rope brought along for tb
purpose Williams was an hones
intelligent, hard working negro, wh
was murdered because he had bee
captain of a militia company. Bratto
was a '"highly re-pectable" practicin
physician in Yorkville. He fled th
country as soon as the President's pro
clamatton was issued. Wheo the uegr
militiamen were massacred at Ch este
last Spring, 509 men were brough
together to do the work, it is estimate
that as many as 2,000 more were on th
road, the*ordere having been sent to a

Special traies on the railroad brough
bodies of armed men from Charlotte, i
North Carolina, and Wionsboro, io th

was because 80 negro militia had dare

Oe one occasion, four men who h

The murders were generally doc

express il, by "a right smart dro*

* To the colored people, this inst
and thorough crushing of ;he Ku K
villainy is a relief long prayed for :
despaired of. No one can imagine
sufferigns these poor creatures b
endured in the past year-the terri
anxiety, the constant fear of scourg
and murder, the sleeping in the wo

rains of Spring, and the actual lort

The confessing Ku Klux agree to I
main as' to what they understood w
j the purposes of the organization. 0
man says he was told it was to "suppr
lawlessness and support the Democn
party," another that he understood
was to "put dowo the Radical Oovei
meat ;" another that it waa to "kc
the oegroes from rising;" aoother tl

variations of the same purpose, und

groes and to the Republican party.
A considerable portion of Ku KI
were too ignorant to know much
politics or parties, but they were n
slow to see the advantages of being al
to abuse with impunity, the black m
and women who lived in their neig:

was to control this poor white eleme
