Details of Difficulty With Negro Pris
oner Which Started in Magis
trate Chappell's Office.
- The ditlicultv which started in Mag
istrate John Henry Chappell's office
I on Monday afternoon between the of
- fteers of the law and a negro prison
er occurred just a few minutes be
t fore The Herald and News went to
press, and it was impossible to pres
i ent the details of the affair in the last
-issue. The essentials, however, were
- gathered, and presented to the read
I ers of The Herald and News, and they
were, in the main, correct.
The facts as they have been gather
ed seem to be about as follows:
Richards Davenport, colored, who
lives in the county, had sold Mr. San
tiers, who conducts a beef market in
Newberry, a lot of pork, and in the
weighiiig it developed that the pork
was sixty-nine pounds short. Sanders
asked the negro about the matter,
and, in order to be certain, weighed
-the pork over, which proved that the
iweighit was sixty-nine pounds short.
Sanders thereupon applied to Magis
trate Chappell for a warrant chargino
Davenport with obtaining goods un
der false pretences, he having already
paid the negro, and the negro having
refused to return the money for the
under-weight. Constable Cannon G.
Blease was absen,t in the country on
official business, and MagistratE
Chappell deputized Mr. J. W. Hen
derson, of this city, to make the ar
. rest. Mr. Henderson went out and
brought Davenport into Magistrate
Chappell's office. Magistrate Chap
pell asked Davenport what he had tt
say in regard to the charges which
had been preferred against him. ThE
negro gave Magistrate Chappell q
very impudent answer. Magistratf
C-1happell said to him, "I am run
ning this court, and don't want an.
impudence." The negro repeated hi,
About this time Constable Cannor
G. Blease came into the office with an
other prisoner, whom he had been out
to arrest. Magistrate Chappell said
to Constable Blease, "I am going tc
send this negro to jail; write out a
commitment;'' whereupon Davenport
rose from his seat and put his hand in
his pants pocket. Special Constable
Henderson laid his hand upon th
-negro 's shoulder and said to him,
"You are a prisoner; sit down." The
negro jerked his knife out of his
pocket and cut Mr. Henderson across
the left jaw. Henderson drew his
pi-stol and Magistrate Chappel]
sprang forward to assist Henderson
in controlling the negro. In -the melee
which ensued the pistol was struck~
Ifrom Henderson 's hand and the negro
psueceedea in cutting .both Messrs.
CI' ippell and Henderson severely. Mr~
Henderson receiving cuts on the .jaw
and Magistrate Chappell on both
sides of the t.hroat.
The office was crowded with people,
'but Constable Blease finally succeed
ed in getting near enough to throw
the negro loose from Magistrate
Chappell. As he did so the negro
grabbed a .hatchet, .whie:h was sitting
by the fire place in the magistratte's
office, and with the hatehet in one
hand and the knife in the other, he
rushed from the office. As he passed
out of the door Sanders grabbed at
him, and he slashed Sanders. aeroes
the jaw and throat wit.h his knife.
and ran on out. - '
Constable Blease followed with his
pistol in his hand. The negro ran
towards the opera house, ou-t of the
north side door of the old court house,
where the magistrate's office is loca:t
ed. As he got about opposite the
Confederate monument he was stop.
ped by Policeman Chalmers. and Con
stable Blease cauaht up wit:h him al
mrost immediately and effected the
a rres-t. Macistrate Chappell followed
Constable Blease out of the office, and
nieked noD a roek-the negro still
having the knife in his hand-and
ciaht the negro on the right hand
side. Magistrate Chappell used the
rock to make the negro drop the
knife, the negro having dropped the
hatchet when Constable Blease ar
rested him and commanded him to
drop his weapons. Following Magis
rate Chappell. Special Constable
Henderson came out of the office with
i Winr-hester rifle, which he had
nicked -up in the office, and he en
deavor-ed to kill the negro, but was
prevented froim doing so by parties
Magistrate Chappell and Constable
Blease took the negro in charge and
carried him to jail, where he was lock
ed up. Chief of Police Adams kept
back the crowd from the officers as
they were taking t.he negro to jail.
Policeman Franklin accom;a nied
Messrs. Chappell and Blease to the
jail with -t-he negro.
