The Last Arrest?Joe Crews Insti?
gates the MuBOER of Dr. Shell.?Cap?
tains Alley and Burnett arrested, on
Thursday evening last, about 5 o'clock,
thirty-two miles below Greenville, in
Laurens County, John (alias Shanghai)
Bolt (white) and lodged him in tho
Greenville jail. He is charged with
being concerned in the murder of Dr.
Shell, of Laurens, in 18G8. When ar?
rested, ho was ploughing in bis Held.
When the officers started him from his
home, his wife said to him: "Now, John,
you reveal the whole story?I knOw it,
and I will tell it, if you don't." John,
however, only states that he believes
Joe Crews and Adam Crews had tho
murder committed. He was recognized
by Wright Sullivan and Parks when car?
ried into jail, as one of the men they
had been plotting the murder with.
Wright Sullivan (colored) is charged
with the murder of Barton, of this
County, and of having been engaged in
several robberies here, and confesses to
be one of tho gang who waylaid and
killed Dr. Shell. He says ho was paid
$40 by the party to do bis part of tho
work, and that the murderous party was
led by Adam Crews in person. Abraham
Johnson, alias Dial, (colored,) is charged
with being connected with tho murder
of Dr. Shell, and was arrested in Wash?
ington City. He is quite reticent, but
says: "It warn't all niggers who were
engaged in the killing of Dr. Shell."
The next is a negro named Parks, who
admits that he was present at the murder
of Dr. Shell, and fired his gun in the
air, to get the promised reward. He
gives a full statement, and claims that
Joe Crews is the man who engaged the
party to commit tho murder.
There are a fow others to bo arrested,
and Captain Alley is looking after them.
At all events, the officers have already
sufficient evidence to convict Joe Crews
and his son, Adam Crews, of instigating
the murder, and they will be arrested
immediately, charged with the commis?
sion of tho horrible crime; and it may as
well be said hero, the citizens of Laurens
have never been wrong in their suspicion
of the instigator of tho niurder of Dr.
Shell. They havo predicted during the
past seven years that Joe Crews put up
the job. They now havo the mc-st con?
clusive evidence. We have henrd it
from the lips of some of these prisoners
ourself. They are suffering in jail for
tho acts of Joe Crews, and there is no
telling how. much trouble be has brought
upon the "poor," unfortunate negroes.
His time has now come! It will bo recol?
lected that Joe Crews has caused to be
arrested a number of the prominent citi?
zens of Laurens at various times charged,
on tho most flimsy' evidence, of Ku hUnx
murders. ' He hnS testified and run off
a large number of persons ?all of which
it has long been supposed, was done to
cover up his own bloody tracks; but ho
is now exposed to the public as a mon?
ster of the deepest dye, and it is to be
hoped that he will bo punished in pro?
portion to tbeso great crimes. The ne?
groes of Laurens, who ho has ruled with
an iron rod, and intimidated and made
to do his murderous work, will no doubt
feel great relief at having his bad influ?
ence over them broken. He has caused
the negroes great trouble, and has
brought several of them to bitter grief,
and they aro now satisfied ho is not their
friend. The preliminary trial of John
Bolt, for the murder of Dr. Shell, took
Slace before Trial Justices McBce and
herman, yesterday, and ho was com?
mitted to jail. The evidonco elicited is
all that is necessary to fasten the instiga?
tion of this murder on the Hon. (!) Joe
Crews. ? Greenville News.
