DETAILS OF CRIME
THE FIEND ONLY ATTEMPTED
TH E AWFUld CRIME.
The Scoundrel Eluded Those Who
Wore Searching for Him, But He
Wfll Be Caught.
We are glad to know that the
fiend who attempted an assault on. a
white lady near Springfield did not
accomplish his hellish purpose, but
was scared off by tbe resolute ac
tion of the lady herself. X letter
from Sprinfield says Arthur Bowen,
which is the name of the would-be
Send, Is accused of an attempted
criminal assault, which was com
mitted in that section, Monday at
noon, on a prominent white married
lady living in a thickly settled com
munity, several neighbors living
within plain view, and not over two
hundred yards away.
Arthur Bowen had been working,
for this family all of this year.. Mon
day, tbe husband of the lady, as
saulted left home on some business
end left the negro man picking., cob
ton near 'the house. About the same
hour the men folks of the- two; near
est neighbors left for some- firm du
ties away from home. Seizing the mo
that, perhaps, he had been
waiting for, it is said that he enter
ed the 'house and attempted" tor com
mit the crime- above mentioned.
On being driven from the home,
it seems that Bowen went back" to
the cotton field, but on the approach
of the husband of the outraged lady,
he dropped his cotton sack, walked
rapidly to his house, secured his
gun and made for a nearby swamp,
thereby making at least a temporary
ggcape. As soon as the news reached
Springfield, a large body of men
started a hunt for the negro, but up
to early ?e~-n.ight he had not' been
A posse left Springfield Tuesday
night, going towards Golumbia, with
the object of endeavoring fg locate
Bowen. This move was caused by the
statement of a negro woman, who
says that she saw Bowen on the rail
road track, about eight milea from
Springfield, about 10 o'clock Tues
day morning, According to the wo
man, Bowen was going in the di
rection of Columbia.
A posse left Springfield Tuesday
night to follow up this clue, and en
deavor to locate the negro, who, it
is thought is making for a big. "cot
ton picking" on the plantation of a
prominent farmer. Should Bowen
be located it is planned far another
po5se to leave Springfield Wednes
day morning before daylight and as
sist in his capture. Automobiles and
other conveyances are being used in
the chase after* the suspected negro.
The citizens of Springfield seem
determined to capture Bowen. even
if it be necessary to follow him to
the ends of the earth. A descrip
tion of the negro, with an offer of
reward, has been sent to all the
leading papers, chiefs of police and
other officers of the law. Arthur
Bowen is a small, dark, ginger-cake
colored negro, about 30 years old;
small, stubby, black mustache, small
black eyes; smalt hands and feet;
weight about 145; height 6 feet, 5
or 6~ inches. j
A dispatch from Aiken says three
armed members of the mo?), which
Monday night patroled the swamp
in the vicinity of Springfield, in
search of the negro, Arthur Bowen,
who, it is alleged, attempted to
criminally assault a white woman
near Springfield Monday, arrived in
Alken Tuesday morning on the 12.40
train and organized a posse to con
tinue a search for the negro, who is
believed to have escaped into the
eastern portion of this county.
One member of the party is a bro
ther of the young woman who was
the victim of the alleged fiendish at- j
tempted Monday morning about 11
o'clock, while his sister was alone in j
the yard. The young lady struggled
?0 violently and screamed for help
so earnestly that, the negro became
frightened and fled before he could
accomplish his diabolical purpose,
the young man continued.
The alarm quickly spread
throughout the surrounding com
munity, and a pcsse of angry, deter
mined men soon formed and .began
the chase. Following the supposed
trail of the assaulter, they were
led to a dense swamp. Confident
that their man was concealed in the
depths of the dense mass, they sur
rounded the swamp and patrolled it
throughout the night. At break of
day the grim pickets began to close
In to the centre, but the object of
their search was not there: he had
either never sought refuge within
the swamp, or hid eluded their vigi
lance, leaving behind him no traces
Determined to capture the alleged
would-be rapist and mete out the
usual punishment, tre men have
usual abandoned the search, but have
sub-divided themselves into smaller
companies. These have been dis
patched into the various towns and
communities of the immediately ad
joining counties and are enlisting
the services of others, who will as
sist them to continue tre search.
This attempt has aroused indigna
tion to the boiling point. Pickets,
literally, armed to the teeth, have
been stationed for miles around the
immediate vicinity of the. crime?,
end", if apprehended by the angry
mob. the guilty party will doubtess
receive swiff punishment. The vic
tim* of the. attempt is the wife" of a
young, farmer and the daughter of
one of" the most prominent citizens
?of the Springfield section.
Sheriff Si?lley Returns.
-Sheriff' ?. M. Salley, who went to
the scene of the outrage near Spring
field on- Monday as quick as he could
get' there, returned Tuesday morn
ing having failed to apprehend the
fiend. The trial of the fugitive was
too cold for the blood hounds to take
*ip_Wh'en he. left tho scene the brute
bad not been captured, but parties
were still on. the lookout for him,
and it is thought he will be caught
TRYING TO CATCH THE FIEND.
It Is Thought That, the Brute Will
Yet Be Run Down.
The hunt for Arthur (Bowen, the
fiend who attempted to assault the
lady near Springfiel?. -Iis still going
on. A dispatch from Springfield
Tuesday evening said the man hunt
which commenced Monday afternoon
was still being pushed with vigor. In
fact, the search in now even more
spirited than when it began. Not so
many pursuers are in line now, but
the men engaged in the hunt are de
termined citizens and not dismayed
Three counties contributed to the
body of men engaged in the hunt,
and it is probable that there never
lias been a more thorough search or
vigil instituted. It is believed Tuesday
night that the negro has escaped the
bands of the Springfield citizens, but
the excellence of the work here al
most insures his capture by others
in whatever /county he has made his
way. Special representatives of
Springfield's citizens left on early
trains for Columbia, Charleston, Sav
annah and Augusta to agitate a sharp
look-out in these cities for the fugi
The search of the swamps, forests,
roads and houses in that section be-'

coninuing still, has been participat

zens from Orangeburg, Aiken and
Barnwell counties;. After the ex
hausting expeditions of Monday
night, houses and NbuiicVngs were
searched Tuesday morning, and Tues
day afternoon parties went out on a
clue that the negro had been seen
near the Blackville-Columbia road.
'Although this expedition proved
fruitless, at dawn Wednesday the
search was resumed, parties leaving
In all directions at early hours. In
the pursuit vehicles of all kinds have
been utilized, automobiles, buggies

FINE GROVE CHURCH
ANNUAL SYNOD TO MEET THERE
IN A SHORT TIME.
! Names of the Pastors Who Hare
Served This Old Historic Church
in the Past.
The following brief, but interest
ing sketch of historic old Pine
Grove Lutheran7 Church was writ
ten for the News and Courier by
Dr. T. H. Dreher, of St Matthews,
and we take pleasure in reproducing
it in our columns, as we know it
will be read with interest:
Calhoun County is proud of its
Lutheran population?moBtly Ger
man?and proud of the fact that the
next Lutheran Synod of South Car
olina will convene November 7-11
in 'Pine Grove Church, on the Santee
River. The first religious society in
old Orangeburg County was a Lu
theran Church and the first Luth
eran organization, in both of the
Carolinas, was established in the
then village of Orangeburg, along
towards the midde of the eighteenth
Soon after the second Lutheran
Church in Orangeburg Township
was established and known as the
St. Matthews Lutheran Church, on
the old Moncks Corner road, eight
miles below the town of St. Mt
thews, with the Rev. Mr. Giessen
daner, of Orangeburg, as its pastor.
From this church, as an offshoot,
sprang the present Pine Grove Lu
theran Church. Its history of sixty
years is interesting.
It was born in 1847, under the
tender guidance of the sainted and
eloquent Rev. J. P. Margart amid
discouraging conditions. Its first a
bode was a rude log structure a few
hundred yards northeast of the pres
ent residence of Mr. J. C. Stouden
mire and a half mile from the pres
ent location. It was later followed
by a frame structure on the present
site of the pretty cemetery.
Twenty years ago another step
forward was made, when the present
Church building was erected, which
Is one of the neatest and prettiest
in the county. The successor of the
Rev. J. P. Margart was the Rev. E.
Dufford, two of whose children are
still living members of the church
and honored citizens of that com
He was succeeded by the Rev. W.
A. Houck for sixteen years and who
was well known to The News and
Courier correspondent, as a boy, as
one of the noblest and most pious
members of his or any there religius
denomination*. He has a son still liv
ing in the Cameron section, who is
one of the most progressive anu
scientific farmers in the county.
The Rev. S. T. Hallman, D. D.,
succeeded Mr. Houck, who is now
the worthy and intelligent secretary
of the United Lutheran Synod and
for a long time the honored editor
of the Lutheran Church Visitor. The
Rev. J. H.' W. Wertz then served
eight years, followed by his son, the
Rev. J. Q. Wertz, whose mantle in
turn fell upon shoulders of the Rev.
M. 0. J. Kreps.
The Rev. J. D. Bowles next took
charge and, under his efficient man
agement, both the present houses of
worship at Pine Grove and Trinity,
Elloree, were built. Next in order,
successively, were the Revs. B. W.
Cronk, S. L. Nease, P. D. Risinger
and W. B. Aull
The present pastor, the Rev. L. P.
Boland, is worthily and nobly filling
the sainted seats occupied by his
splendid array of predecessors. Dur
ing the year 1910, under his success
ful regime, the pastorate composed
of Pine Grove, Trinity (Elloree) and
a small congregation, St. Mark's,
near Fort Motte, contributed $1,100
to the new Theological Seminary
building, in Columbia. This year
they have contributed $1,000 to the
Lutheran Mission School, in Japan.
This year, Pire Grove has contri
buted $800 to improvements in her
church and parsonage.
Pine Grove has been peculiarly
honored by the Lutheran Synod,
this being the third ime its sessions
have been held v.thin her sacred
precincts, first held 1S54 and again
in 1884. A stirring incident happen
ed during its sitting in 1884. While
in session, the news of Grover Cleve
lands's first election as president of
the United States was announced to
the large congregation in the yard
by the Rev. Dr. Stack, who waved
his hat on high and should lustily
for the first Democratic President
since Buchannan, in the late fifties.
Such, in short, is the manner of
chrch which will welcome the Lu
theran Synod to its midst in Novem
ber. It may be stated, in advance,
that the visiting brethren will he
royaly entertained by one of the
most prosperous flocks in the State,
and who love their church with ev
ery fibre of their being.
Reward Offered for Fiend.
The husband of the lady insulted
by Arthur Bowen. the black fiend,
near 'Springfield on Monday offers a
reward of $100 for his arrest, dead
or alive. The $100 has been depos
ited in the Hank of Springfield. The
following is the description of the
fiendish brute: About 3 0 years of
age, small in size and dark ginger
cake in color, small stubby black
mustache, small black eyts, small
hands and feet, weight about 145
pounds, height five feet, five or six
Prizes to Bo Announced.
The County Board of Education
gives out the following: The prize
list and those giving the prizes to
the boys of the corn club will be an
nounced soon. The prize commit
tee will pass on the reports of the
boys the first Monday in November.
All boys should have their reports
in by above date. Name of win
ners will be announced and the priz
es awarded on Education Day of the
County Fair which is Tuesday Nov.
TOY PISTOLS AND CAPS.
Merchants Who Sell Lay Themselves
Liable to the Law.
Several people have requested us
to call attention to the State law
forbidding the selling of toy pistols
and cartridges, and we .comply by
publishing the law passed by the
Legislature on the subject some
years ago. Here Is the law as we
find it, and we call the attention of
merchants to it:
"It shall be unlawful for any
person, firm or corporation, in this
State, to sell, keep for sale, or of
fer for sale, or give away, any toy
pistol in which caps or cartridges
are used, or any caps or cartridges
for such toy pistols. Every person,
firm or corporation violating the
provisions of this section, shall up
on convicition, be fined one hundred
dollars, or be imprisoned for a
term not to exceed thirty days."
This law was passed because of
the fact that several children died
of lockjaw In thiB and other states
from the use .of these toy pistols
and cartridges. In the city of Nor
folk twenty boys died one Chrisf
mas season from particles of the
cartridges entering their hands and
causing blood poisoning.
.They are dangerous and no mer
chant should sell them in violation
of the law. It seems that some of
them have recently been sold in this
city by some one, and we under
stand that if it is not stopped the
matter will be called to the atten
tion of the grand jury. We are sat
isfied that the person who sold them
did so because they were not aware
that it was not unlawful to do. That
is why this notice is published. The
law must be obeyed.
AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT SERIOUS
Mrs. H. A. Raysor Is Still Sneering
From Her Injuries.
The St. Matthews correspondent of
The News and Courier says that
"community has been greatly con
cerned and alarmed over the auto
mobile accident to Mrs. H. A. Ray
sor and shock to Mrs. A. W. Holman,
last Friday, and interest is still un
bated. Mrs. Raysor has been under
a.nadynes almost constanly to relieve
her intense sufferings. For several
days she was unable to use her low
er limbs and some spinal complica
tions were feared.
"Her physician, Dr. W. L. Pou,
was asked by The News and Courier
correspondent Tuesday afternoon for
an authentic statement. He says that
the patient has suffered intensely,
especially in the lumbar region, be
sides other temporary complications,
but his professional opinion is that
she has passed the crisis and will
"Mrs. Holman profoundly regrets
the accident and is prostrated. The
version sent out last Friday was part
ly incorrect as to the cause of the
trouble. It appears that Mrs. Raysor
was sitting quietly in her surrey and
was in no way responsible for the ac
cident to them, and they all wish
and many inquiries have come from
various points in the State."
i?oth Mrs. Raysor and Mrs. Hol
man have many friends in Orange
burg who regret to hear of the ac
cident to them, and they all wisr
that both of the injured ladies will,
soon be entirely restored to health.
It was not known here at first that
Mrs. Raysor was so seriously hurt,
and the above about her condition
has caused (considerable uneasiness
among her friends here.
Farmers' Union For Elloree.
Mr. B. F. Keller, State organizer
of the Farmers' Union, will be at Ell
oree tomorrow afternoon, for the
purpose of organizing a farmers'
union at Elloree. All of the farmers
of the vicinity are urgently request
ed to attend this meeting, as many
matters of importance to the farm
ers will be discussed. The proposed
Standard Warehouse will be fully
explained to the farmers at this
meeting and the books of subscrip
tion to the capital stock will be open
ed and all who desire may subscribe
for the stock.
Mercury Keeps Dropping.
The temperature continues to fall,
and the weather is cooler now than
it has been at any other time this
season. Light frosts ha.ve been re
ported as low down as North Caro
lina, but none has been reported in
the lower part of this stat<>, but if
the mercury continues to fall it is
very likely that we will have a light
frost here. Heavy frosts have been
reported in some parts of the Mis
sissippi valley. In this -part of the
country the mercury has fallen near
the fifty degree mark, which is not
very far from the frost line.
How To Kill Weevils.
"How shall I keep cow.peas over
for seed to avoid weevils?" Get a
good lot of the naptha moth balls
from a drug store and mix them all
through the peas and then store
them in tightly covered barrels or
boxes. This is the Imethod seeds
men use. If weevils appear at any
time, open the peas and place some
carbon bisulphide in a saucer on
top of them and close up, and the
fumes will sink through and kill
the weevils. Keop fire away from
'his as the fumes are explosive, but
the moth balls will usually prevent

popular auditor of Calhoun County
and it Is currently reported in the
streets of St. Matthews that he will
