A SOCIAL SENSATION.
Savannah Stirred up over n Sensational
AlTalr In Police Circles.
Savannah, Ga., Nov. 30.?The po
lice are excited over a social sensation
which developed here to-day. Early
this afternoon pedestrians on West
Broad street were startled at seeing a
figure, closely wrapped in a blanket,
fleeing barefooted through the street,
closely followed by police officer Pat
terson, fring as he ran, ''Stop!" he
shouted, and the fleeing man dropped
at the feet of his pursuer. For God's
sake don't kill me, he implored. Officer
Patterson was thunderstruck. The
man at whom he shot was Patrolman
Roach, his most intimate friend. Pat
terson had entered his home a fow
minutes before, an hour earlier than
usual. Just as he was about to enter
his wife's room his mohter-in-law stop
ped him and asked him to step into her
room, as a young lady was in nis wife's
room and would be embarrassed if he
was to see her there. Patterson step
ped into Ms mother-in-law's room and
laid off his pitol. Glancing toward the
door he saw a figure in a blanket pas3.
With an oath he seized his pistol. The
man whe was hidden in his wife's room
dashed into the street and Patterson
followed. None of the shots took effect.
When down Roach showed letters from
Mrs. Patterson inviting him to call. An
explanation followed. Patterson -e
f used to prosecute Roach, but said he
would leave his wife and he did. Mrs.
Patterson is a decidedly pretty young
brunette, and was engaged to Roach
before she married Patterson. The
affair created a great sensation among
the police, and both officers will be
summoned before the authorities.
a brute lynched
Fo:r Attempting: to Outrage a Young White
Girl Near Florence.
A negro named Ciesar Robinson was
lynched! at Florence Tuesday night,
November 30, for attempting an out
rage upon a young white girl. We
learn that the intended victim of the
negro was walking unattended along
the railroad, about two miles from
. rioronoci as was her custom, when' he
made tho,atterapt. Fortunately at that
moment 'some white boys came out of
the woods near by, upon which the ne
gro, evidently under the apprehension
that gfrown persons were in the vicini
ty, n5ade his escape. The girl returned
to'Florence, where her father and
.brother work in the railroad shops, and
/she reported the occurrence. This all
/ transpired about 10 o'clock Monday
/ morning. That night a party of citi
zens caught the negro on a material
train, when they bound him and took
him to the guard house. He denied
his guilt, but on Tuesday he was taken
to the girl's home where he was posi
tively identified. He claimed that his
brother looked like him and probably
he was the guilty party, but the girl
knew her assailant. At any rate Rob
inson was taken back to prison and his
brother taken before the girl, who
promptly acquitted him of the crime.
Tuesday, about 6 P. M., the lynchers
began to assemble, seeing which ne
groes also gathered in front of the
guard house to defend the prisoner.
The lynchers, however, attacked the
rear of the prison and in a short time
hanged Robinson to a tree in the yard.
Several shots were fired by negroes at
the lynching party, but a volley from
the latter soon put them to flight.?Co

Three Murderers Lynched.
Chicago, December 3.?A special
from Brenham, Texas, says : At an
early hour yesterday morning an armed
mob came to town, overpowered the
jailer and took out Shea Feldner, Al
fred Jones and Ephraim Jones, three of
the negroes implicated in the killing of
Dewes Holten at Llewellen's store, in
this County, on the night of the elec
tion, and lynched them. It was so
quickly done that the town was not
aroused. The bodies of the three men
were found hanging to a tree in the
morning. It was thought the feeling
against the men had subsided, so that
further trouble would not occur, and
Sheriff Dever had brought them hack
from Houston, whither they had been
sent for safekeeping. There is no clue
to any of the perpetrators. It is feared
that "the unfortunate occurrence will.
again cause race prejudice and raise
political excitement very high.
A Desperate Thief.
Paksoxs, Kansas, December 3.?A
stranger registered at the Central Ho- !
tel Wednesday evening as "Jim Cum
mings," and soon went to supper.
When he came out he put on the land
lord's hat and departed. Policeman'
Kizer was put on his track and arrested
him near the depot. They had walked
a short distance, when the man pulled
away from the policeman, and stepping j
back a few paces drew a pistol and!
?fued. The policeman dropped, fatally
wounded, and the assassin made his es
cape down the track, stampeding the
crowd, who attempted to stop him, by
flourishing his revolver. The police
man is dying._
Only a Match.
At Bellaire. ()., a parlor match upon
the floor of the store of Robert Hall
was stepped upon, and its ignition
threw a spark into some loose powder
which in turn caused the explosion of
a keg of powder, blowing out the end of
the building. Three persons were kill
ed and four badly hurt.

gad End of a Beautiful Young Actress
Foal Flay Suspected.
Sandtjsky, Oino, November 28.?
Coroner Szendery was sent for to go to
a point in the woods four miles from
this city in the direction of old Huron
village. He found that a young couple
who nad wandered into the woods had
discovered the body of an elegantly
dressed and beautiful woman lying be
tween two large logs. The "Coroner
found a vial by her side containing a few
drops of chloroform, and some distance
away a sponge. He felt convinced that
it was a case of foul play. The body
was brought here and recognized as
that of Mrs. Alic Douglass, an actress.
She and her husband came here about
a month since and he got work at
painting scenery. Two weeks later he
notified the police that his wife had
disappeared, and remarked that he sus
pected foul play, but would not explain
what he meant*- When found she had
been dead about two days. The mystery
is as to her whereabouts from the time
she disappeared two weeks ago to the
time of her death. Douglass left here
on Friday. A farmer says he saw a
strange woman and man in the woods
near where the corpse was tound on
that day. The label on the bottle had
on it the name of a druggist at Cold
water, Mich. Mrs. Douglass is said to
have been an actress of some note up to
the time she injured herself while play
ing a part in which she had to leap from
a burning building. She had on her
person valuable jewels and a gold
watch. The police say they have a
clue and will investigate the mystery.
Friends of the deceased woman living
at a place in Pennsylvania called
Wysax have sent a dispatch ordering
the remains to be sent there. They
were sent to-night. The woman's hus
band accompanied them. He is ap
parently prostrated with grief. Vigil
ant search fails to disclose where Mrs.
Douglass was during the two weeks
after she disappeared. It is said that
she had a violent struggle with Doug
lass the day she was missed. When
found all her underclothing was clean
and fresh, yet she is known to have
taken nothing from her room. Justice
Keys repeats his story that she was at
his house early on Friday morning last
before he was up, and he made arrange
ments to meet her at his office two
hours later. She told him her name
and said she had important business
with the magistrate, but he saw no
more of her, and she doubtless met her
death the same day, as the Coroner says
she had been dead about two days when
found. A companion of Douglass says
he had quarreled with both his people
and hers, and had not seen them for
years. It is said he met and married
the deceased woman at a Chicago thea
tre some six years ago.
The Baptist Convention.
The sixteenth annual session of the
Baptist State Convention met in Colum
bia Thursday morning, November 25th.
Col. James A. Hoyt was re-elected
president, and A. J. S. Thomas, secre
tary. Kev. F. C. Hickson, who has re
cently returned from China on account
of failing health 'received a hearty wel
come from the entire Convention. A
Thanksgiving service was conducted
by the Kev. Dr. Furman. The report
of the woman's missionary societies set
forth that during the year just closed
$2,739.31 had been collected, the most
of which had been contributed to the
Foreign Mission Board. The report on
home missions was filled with accounts
of the good work the board has accom
plished within the past year. Much
work' has been done among the In
dians and negroes, ten thousand dollars
having been appropriated for carrying
on the work among the negroes alone.
The Convention adjourned Saturday
night, and will hold its next annual
session in Sumter. This is said to have
been the largest Baptist Convention
ever held in this State, and one of the
most pleasant and profitable.
Swindler* Hade to Disgorge.
Abhkville, S. C, December 3>?
Frank A. Bobbin's circus, show, or
whatever it may be called, took in our
town yesterday, giving two perfor
mances?one in the afternoon and the
other at night. E verything went along
smoothly until an old man named Bell
came up town looking for the Sheriff,
claiming that he hnd been swindled
out of two hundred and fifty dollars by
one of the circus men, calling himself
Brock. This man made Mr. Bell be

Brocks. He gave Mr. Bell a due bill
for the S250 and signed it C. A. Brock

there is no more natural remedy than a
mild cathartic, one which will be sure
to perform its duty without injuring
the system in the least. Such, let us
say in all candor, is Simmons' Hepatic
Compound. It will gently move the
bowels, without irritating them in the
least; when the medicine works, the
bowels are soothed and healed like a

ingredients possess all the good qualities
of that poisonous drug, without any of
its constituents. A dose of Simmons'
Hepatic Compound every night on

Care for Piles
Piles are frequently preceeded % a
sense of weight in the back, loinsfifod
lower part of the abdomen, causing the
patient to suppose he has some affec
tion of the kidneys or neighboring ? or

tion are present, flatulency, uneasiness
of the stomach, etc. A moisture like
perspiration, producing a very dis
agreeable itching, after getting warm,
is a common attendant. Blind, Bleed

the application of Dr. Bosanko s 'Pile
Remedy, which acts directly upon the
parts affected, absorbing the Turilor3,
