WEDNESDAY, SOY. '21, 1901.
A Negro Comniits an Atrocious Crime
and is Lynched.
Last Saturday afternoon tho happy
homo of Mr. Perry Craft, in Hock
Mills Township, about eight miles west
of this city, was tho scene of a most
atrocious crime, for which there was
not the slightest provocation. Mr.
Craft lives on tho plantation of his
father-in-law, Mr. Alex. Glenn, a
highly esteemed citizen of that section,
and not far from tho latter's home.
About I o'clock a negro man came to
Mr. Craft's home and found Mrs. Craft
alone in the house. He asked her lor [
something to ont, and she replied that '
she had nothing prepared except some j
cold potatoes. The negro said he
would buy live cents worth of them, i
Mrs. Craft went back to 1 he pantry and
brought them lo him. As she handed
them lo him she, noticed a pistol in his
hand, and he exclaimed ' !> it you, I
believe I \\ ill !.ill you.'' i iii-, <>i' (
course, frightened Mis. daft; who ran
to the rear side of the room und while at
tempting to open :i door, the negro
lircd at her, tin; ball entering the
near the spine. She tinV.U opened the
door and ran some distance in the \ uni
and tell tot he ground.
The husband and father of the un
fortunate woman were at work in a
Held near by, and, heat ing the shot and
her screams, ran at once to the house,
They saw the negro llcciug from the
house as they ran up. The father
brought Mrs. Craft inside, ami the hits
band, .securing his, pistol, started after \
the negro. Mr. (.'raft soon got in ;
shooting distance and snapped his pis- !
toi, but it would not lire. The. negro 1
turned and snapped Ins pistol two or;
three times at Mr. Craft, hut it also
would not lire. In tho meantime Mr.
Lucius Glenn, an uncle of Mrs. Craft,
who happened to bo in a distant field j
with his rille, hearing the alarm and \
seeing tho negro, rau to the road and
Und several times at him, apparently
wf'hout effect, and the negro was soon
* ' of sight.
Ur. Pepper, who lives in that section,
was at once summoned to the bedside
of Mrs. Craft, and ho telephoned to this
city for Dr. Gray, who immediately
went to his assistance. They probed
tho wound but could no t Und the bul- |
let, and they informed the family that !
it was a very serious wound.
The newsof tho terrible crime spread
rapidly through the neighborhood, and I
in a short while every citizen who could i
leave his home went to Mr. Craft's. A j
telephone message was sent to Sheriff
Green, and in a few minutes Deputy;
Sheriff Dillingham, with his blood- I
hounds, was on his way there. The'
announcement caused a sensation in j
the city, and in a short while many of]
our younger citizens started for the. '
scene to assist in capturing the brutal .'
negro. Deputy Dillingham's dogs trail- !
ed the negro tor several miles and lost1
Iiis track at n branch running from a j
swamp on Robert Chambleo's planta- I
tion. Tho party thon scattered and
went in every direction searching for
the villain. Some of them went to
Holland's and Cooley's Ferries, on the
Savannah Iii ver, and at the latter
place, the ferryman, who was aroused
from his sloep, stated that a negro,
whom ho described, had crossed the
river that afternoon from Georgia.
Mrs. Craft, who was able to talk, had
giveu a description of the negro, and
her description fitted the negro whom
tho ferryman described. The negro
carried a bundle of clothing, which he
dropped as he left Mr. Craft's house,
and had an old towel tied around his
neck. Both tho ferrymau and Mrs.
Craft spoke of this.
About S o'clock Sheriff Green left the
city and went to Mr. Croft's to take
supervision of the search, and after
midnight it was feared that the negro
could not bo found. A. large party,
however, continued tho search all
night, and early Sunday morning oth
ers joined them. As the morning pass
ed away tho crowd increased in num
bers, tho excitement increased and
every number of the party wt.s deter
mined to capture tho negro if possible.
Oil Sunday about noon a negro, who
lives on the. Cooley plantation, about
six miles west of Mr. Craft's home, ap
proached a posse who were hunting
the villain and told them that he was
at his house. They returned with this
negro to his home, and, surrounding
the house, ordered tho criminal tu come
out and surrender, which he did. Tin;
party then brought him to the home of
Mr. C'a ft, and hi* was at once identified
by his victim. The negro was won mi
ed iu the calf of his light leg, which
showed that one of I lie.balls from the
ville lircd by Mr. Lucius Glenn had
After the negio had been identified
he confessed that he was guilty of the
deed, and said that the reason he shot
Mrs. Craft was because she insulted
him by saying that "you negroes are
always around begging." l?y this time
a crowd of nearly two hundred people,
fifteen or tw.cnty of whom were negroes
of that section, had congregated at tho
homo ot Mr. Craft, and it was soon de
cided that the criminal must be put to
death. Ho was carried a mile or more
and hanged on a limb of a tree near
Gray's gin house. Somo of the negroes
expressed a dosiro to burn the prisoner,
but this was not permitted, and after
ho was swung froir* tho limb a number
of pistol balls punctnrcd bis body.
Some of tho best citizens of tho County
participated in tho lynching and not
pno of them attempted to disguise him
self. Everything passed off quietly
and :n an orderly viauner.
i'he news of tho lynching reached
tli city about 6 o'clock p. m. and a
nnittter of our citizens went out to the
scene I o viow tho body, which had been
left hanging to the tree, bat had
/slipped the noose and fallen to the
ground, where it lay until Monday
morning, when Coroner Banister went
out there and held an inquest. The
verdict of the jury was to the effect
that the negro came, to hi* death at the
hands of parties unknown to them. A
piece of paper was pinned to his coat
bearing the following words: "This
negro was hanged for shooting a white
lady in tliis settlement without cause,
November 34, 1001."
Tho negro proved to be John Lad
dison, nn ex-convict, who hnd been
sent to the penitentiary from Newbcr
ry County for three years. Ho had
served the greater portion of his sen
tence in the convict camp on the Coolcy
plantation in this County. He was re
leased from tho camp last spring and
since then had worked on farms in that
section and on the Georgia side of the
While a largo majority of the people
of this County do not uphold lynch
law, if is the general opinion that in
tlii- ease the negro met: the' fate lu- de
Mi>. Craft is a most excel h -it woman,
about nineteen years of age, nnd vas
mariied about six month* siuo. Since
she was wounded there has been no
change in her condition, but it is feared
that when a change does come it will

Mr. l.owdon is interested in cotton

merly actively engaged in South Caro

the Fanners' Alliance movement in
that State. He has retired from poli

cotton manufacture, which, he says, is
far more profitable than South Caro
Last .Monday afternoon Mrs. G. P.
lligby, accompanied by her three little
children and her mother, Mrs. L. F.
McPall, while out. driving came near
meeting with si serious accident. They
were going up the new street, on the
north side of the Blue Ridge liai 1 road.
While crossing the bridges over Whit
ner's Creek the horse became frighten

menced backing. There being no
banisters on the bridge the horse back
ed the vehicle and its occupants into
the creek below, a distance of four or
five feet, and then fell ou them. Two
or three persons saw tho accident, and,
running to the scene, carried the ladies
and children into a house nearby, and
later they were carried home. Dr. J.
O. Wilhito attended tho ladies and
found both of them painfully but not
seriously hurt. Tho small hone in tho
left arm of Mrs. MeFall was broken be

severely bruised in tho chest and two
of her ribs fractured. Two of tho

The beautiful tablet recently erect
ed in tho corridor of tho Court House,
in honor of Gen. Robert Anderson by
the Cateechee Chapter of tho Daugh
ters of tho Revolution, was unveiled
last Thursday afternoon in tho pres
ence of a largo crowd of residents of
the city. The exercises were very ap
propriate and interesting, and were
opened with prayer by Rev. J. D.
Chapman. Tho veil was lifted off of
the tablet by Ozo and Elizabeth Van

County is named for Gen. Anderson,
whose body rests in tho Old Stone
Churchyard, near IVndleton. He lived
in IVndleton District and was a eloso
friend of Gen. Andrew Pickcus, When
that District \vn? divided and the
Legislature came to the task of select

to his feet, and cried with a loud voice,
"Anderson, Anderson in honor of our
gallant Robert. A braver man never
lived. That name should be a beacon
light for the citizens to live pure and
noble, lives, worthy of the man for
whom their County is named." And
so it was. Tho County received tho
name of Anderson. The people to-day
are worthy descendants of their gal

E. T. Gnmbrell, of whom this brief
mumorial is ninth*, tho son of Mr. E.
Tyler Gnmbrell and Mrs. Dnisie Ward
law Gambrcll, was horn in Anderson,
S. C, Jau. 0, ]?HQ, and fell asleep at
Anderson Sept. 30, 1001.
Tho seed of his training early bore
fruit, and at the age of fourteen he
united himself with the First Baptist
Church of Anderson. In tho Sabbath
School he was a regular attendant.
Naturally quick, energetic and am
bitious, and feeling the necessity of
aiding his parents, lie begau work at
an early age as a printer. He was
always loved and respected by his
employes. Three years ago ho became !
connected with the job printing de
partment of The Mate in Columbia,
and remained in that capacity until his
health forced him to resign in July,
when he returned to the home of Iiis
parents. After ten weeks of suffering
Iiis soul w inged its flight heavenward.
It was during these last weeks that
his sweetest, highest qualities shown
forth. Although his hopes were all
blighted, his purposes broken off, his
body racked with pain, yet no murmur
escaped his lips, no questioning of
Cods providence, liver patient ami
considerate, his care was to spare Iii.?*
loved ones pain, and as the end drew
near bis love for them was as a con
suming liante. Words' of love and
affection ami comfort were constantly
spoken to them.
Through all, his faith in his Saviour
wa-, unfaltering. None who conversed
with him could fail tobe impressed
with the sustaining power of divine
grace. Iiis death was triumphant.
Closing his eyes to Beetles of earth he
opened them on the beauties of heaven.
'I lie going away of this bright, affec
tionate, dutiful one lias left hearts
desolate but it is well with him. His
sweet, pine, young lite enriched others
here; it is blooming m heaven radiant
in the beauty of holiness.
"Oil the banks beyond the liver,
We shall meet no more to sever.
In the bright, the bright forever,
I ii tin- summer land of song."
