negroes tried to obtain certincates
during the day, but most of these
wl,re unable t;o pass the con.titu
tional test and were turned down.
Only six or eight were able to get
regi'stration certiticates. It is not
known whether they really wanted
to %.ote. or whether they will use
this afterwards in somebodvs ef
forts to break down the election
laws of the state. but there is un
doubtedlv something on toot.
Whatever the cause in Ander
son and in other parts of the state.
there has been as little effort as
usual among the negroes of this
county to secure registration cer
tificates. At the meeting of the
board on Monday there were only
two applications from negroes- One
of these applicants was a school
teachc- who successfully stood all
the tests and who was given his
certificate. The other applicant
was tested and was told to come
back when the board had consider
ed his case. He did not return.
About* seventy-five registration
certificates were issued to white. vo
ters on Monday.
The Wrong Man.
Sheriff P-uford on Monday ar
rested a negro who fitted exactly
the description given of the negro
who murdered young Howells in
Columbia during the latter part of
last year. The Columbia author
ities were notified and Deputy
Sheriff Cathcart and the coroner
of Richland county came up on
Wednesday an( questioned the ne
gro. coming ti the conclusion that
1he was not the miian wanted. The
negro was originally irom this
county but has been on the tramp
for several years past. Sheriff Bu
ford after coming to the conclus
ion that lie was the man wanted for
murder of Howells found on the
dav before he arrested th0e negro
that lie had a warrant for him is
sued by Magistrate I Haic for burg
larV. andi Sheriff Buford is now
holding the negro on this warrant.
