Samuel O. Jackson, of ibis County,

South Carolina who attended the re

Congress, and :eports a most interest

State in the Lnion being represented.
Mr. Jackson says the citizens of Ma
con gave tho delegates a most hearty
reception, and extended them every
courtesy. Many of the delegates from
the extreme northern ami eastern
States had never before been south,
and they were more than pleased with
the hospitality extended them. At the

nt Helton, returning and stopping at

run through from Helton to Seneca,
making close connection with trains
for both tho north and west on the
Southern from Atlanta to Charlotte,
returning to Anderson in timo to make
the usual connection with tho after

Joe Clark, the negro who was brought
to the city Tuesday of last week and
glaced in jail charged with killing Ed.
cott, a negro, in Hall Township, near
Storeville, on the Monday preceeding,
was Bet at liberty by the Sheriff last
Thursday. The verdict of the Coro
ner's jury was, in substance, that the
deceased came to his death by tbe act
of parties unknown. No warrant was
issued for Joe Clark, and tho Sheriff
had no alternative but to liberate him.
The circumstances of the killing were
Seculiar. Joe Clark, Grant Clark, Ed.
cott and Lester Lee, all negroes, were
loading seed cotton on the farm of W.
P. Clark, father of the Clark boys
named and father-in-law of Ec. Scott.
Joe Clark and Scott quarrelled and
passed a few blows. Scott drew his
knife and made a rake at Clark, who
tripped bim. Scott fell heavily but
rose again. The tight was not renewed
and Scott said nothing about being
cut. In fact, the witnesses believed
that he did not know he was cut until
some time after the" fight was over.
He suddeuly grew ill, was carried
borne and it then became known he
was cut in the left breast. There was
bleeding from the wound externally.
Death resulted in about one hour after
he was carried home. At the inquest
witnesses testified that Clark had no
knife; Scott only had a knife which he
closed and put in his pocket after the
fight. The theory is that Scott fell on
hts own knife, the blade, which was
small, penetrating his heart. Scott's
mother came to the city Thursday and
consulted Magistrate Wilson about is
suing a warrant. The testimony of
the witnesses at the inquest was read
to her. She had no other witnesses,
and finally left without having the
warrant issued. This family of Clarks
is perhaps the most prosperous und
best negroes in Anderson County.
Since writing the above a warrant was
issued upon the affidavit of Ernaline
Sullivan, the mother of Ed. Scott,
charging murder, and Joe Clark was
again arrested and placed in jail.
