A SMALL RIOT.
In Which Negro Women Take Part
Eight Women and One Man Un
der Arrest-Two Shot.
Six negro women and one negro
man are in jail charged with riot.
Two other negro women have been ar
rested on the same ehargebut one of
them was wounded and unable to be
brought to jail, and the other was
left with her to wait upon dher until
she was able to be moved.
It all grew out of a very small mat
ter and was kept very quiet, no one
in Newberry except the officers know
ing of it until yesterday afternoon.
It took place on Tuesday morning
about ten o'clock on Mr. S. B. Aull's
place near Jalapa only seven miles
from Newberry. The facts as g-.ther
ed from Mr. P. B. Odell, who is the
constable for Magistrate Aughtry, are
as follows: Mr. J. C. Duncan had a
contract with Kitty Glasgow to work
for this year. Brack Glasgow who
lives on Mr. Aull's place it is charg
ed moved Kitty from Mr. Duncan's
place in the night time. Mr. Duncan
had .a warrant taken out f'or Kitty
for violation of contract and one
against Brack Glasgow for enticing
labor. The warrant was sworn out
before Magistrate Aughtry at Whit
mire, and plaeed in the hands of Mr.
P. B. Odell, as constable, to be exe
uted. On Tuesday morning Mr. Odell
accompanied by Mr. Duncan went to
Mr. Aull's place at Jalapa to arrest
tihe parties. They arrested Kitty
Glasgow and took her to a negro's
house on Mr. Aull's place where she
was left until a warrant for Brack
had been executed. He was at JAck
son's house on the same place. Mr.
Odell and Mr. Duncan rode up to .the
gate and Mr. Odell called him out and
told him that he 'had a warrant for
his arrest. He came to the gate and
Constable Odell read the warrant to
him. Brack said he was not going to
be arrested and was not going. Mr.
Odell insisted that the come and told
him it was only a small offence .and
might be settled but that resisting an
officer was a very serious matter and
might cause .considerable trouble. A
negro woman who was standing on
the piazza spoke up and said "Pa
wasn'!t going no where.'' Several
negro women then came out on the
piazza of Jackson's house, and they
got into a general discussion. Mr.
dell in the meantime insisted that it
would'be better for them to be quiet,
and -advised the negro women to hush.
They paid no attention to him. In
the meantime Brack became angry
and swore he would die before he
would submit to arrest and go with
the officer. Mr. Odell insisted that the
row stop and that Brack go with him
as he ought to do. Brack still refus
ed and 'Mr. Odell went in the gate
and told Brack he was going to take
him. Brack drew 'his knife and
swore he would die b"Pre he would
go. At this juncture -the womeni on the
piazza went in.to the house and re
turned with two shot guns. In the
meantime there were two of the wo
men who 'had come out and gathered
up pick and mattox and drew them on
Mr. J. C. Duncan and made at him
with them. The women who had the
uns ran out with them. Mr. Odell
seeing the gun aimed towards him
swung around a tree nrear by and in
this way avoided a shot which was
fired and wi'eh passed within a foot
of his person.
As/soon as the shot was fired Mr.
Odell who hiad his pistol in his hand
shot at the women. Three shots were
then fired at Mr. Odell' and Mr. Dun
an with thbe guns from the crowd on
the porch. Brack in the meantime
having joined the women on the porch
and probably firing one of the shots.
Mr. Odell fired five times with his
pistol at Brack and the women. Mr.
dell and Mr. Duncan were not shot
but one of t:he women, Winnie Glas
ro was shot between the ankle and
the knee and Brack received one
wound in the knee. Mr. Odell having
no farther ammunition and having
exhausted all the chambers of his pis
tol he and Mr. Duncan retired, mount
ed their horses and returned to Mr.
Duncan 's 'home.
Winnie Glasglow, who was shot in
the knee, is the wife of Brack.
Mr. Odell reported that afternoon
to Magistrate Aughtry, whio had is
sued the papers, and Mr. Odell by
instructions of Magistrate Aughtry
took the matter up with Sheriff Bu
ford, and as a result of the conference
with Sheriff Buford and upon his
advice warrants were sworn out by
Mr. Odell charging the following pat
ties with riot, and they were all plae
ed in jail yesterday with the exception
of the two as stated above: Brack

COUNTY HAS NO MONEY.
Will Probably Get Only $15,000 from
State Sinking Fund-No Money
to Run On.
The time for paying county and
State taxes expires next Monday,
March 15th. After that the treasur
er will make up his execution book
and .all unpaid taxes will be turned
over to -the sheriff for collection.
Treasurer Epps says that there are
a great many who have not yet paid
their taxes. That is, there are a
number of receipts that have not been
written bat the to.tal amount of taxes
charged has been very nea:rly all col
lected. In other words the receipts
which have not been written are in
nearly every case small amounts.
After the 15th Mr. Epps will make
up ihis statement and it will then be
ascertained what percentage of the
taxes charged has been collected.
When his return mad made up the
15th of February the amount collect
ed up to that time compared very
favorably with the amount collected
one year ago at the same time.
Under the law as it is now the time
for paying taxes without the penalty
expires on the 31st of December, and
taxes may be paid through January
with a penalty of one per cent., and
through February with an additional
penalty of one per cent., and through
March and up to and including the
15th with an additional penalty of
five per ,ent, making a total penalty
of all taxes paid now up to the 15th,
seven per cent.
Heretofore Treasurer Epps has
been collecting practically all of the
taxes charged. One year as much as
ninety-nine per cent. and other years
from ninety-seven to ninety-eight per
cent. He cannot tell yet what per
centage of the taxes will be collected
but Ire thinks it will not fall far be
hind other years, as the number of
receipts yet unwritten do not -repres
ent large amounts.
The county at present has no money
on hand at all to pay current expen
s's, and in fact owes about $12,000
to $14,000. The legislature at its re
cent sessi6n passed an act authorizing
the county supervisor to borrow from
the State sinking fund $20,000, pledg
ing the taxes for this year for its
payment. So many of these special
loans were authorized during the re
eent session of the legislature that it
is not probable -thast the sinking fund
will be a:ble to accommodate all of
them. The State sinking fund, how
ever, will apportion what money nt
has to loan amongst the various ap
plicants, and it is probable that New
berry will be able .to get $15,000 of
the $20,000 autAhorized.
-The county owes the sinking fund
$7,000 for money borrowed last year,
this note being due sometime during
this month. Of course, that will have
to 'be paid out 'of the $15,000 or$2,
000 that i's ito be borrowed. That $7,
000 is included 'in the $14,000 of t.be
indebtedness of the county.
This money from the State sinking
fund will probably be available by
the end of this month. If the coun
ty can get only $15,000, -after paying
the indebtedness up to 'the present
time, it will be seen that ther'e will
be a very small amount left with
whieb .to pay the running exenses
of the county for this year. There
will be no money on hand at all to
pay the count expenses of next week.
These expenses usually amount to
about $800 for the week's court.
Under the special act passed as to
roads, bridges, and ferries levying a
one mill tax, the treasurer is author
i,zed to borrow :the amount that will
be real'ized from this tax pledging the
tax for its payment.
The one mill tax will raise about
$7,000. The treasurer will probably
borrow this amount .but it cannot un
der the terms of the act be put into
the ordinary county fund, but is to be
used for roads, bridges, and ferries.
This, of course, is a very indefinite
term but it will necessitate keeping a
separate account with this fund, and
will be available for the building of
bridges, maintaining ferries, and sup
norting .the chain gang.
T.here is al's a special levy of one
half of one mill for past in.debted
ness but this will not be available
until the itaxes are collected next fall.
Altogether it would seem that the
finances of 'the county are in a rather
That Carnival Shooting.
The p)relimninary hearing was had
yesterday before Magistrate Chappell
in the case of the State against Miteh
el Wright charged with the shooting
of T. A. Burley. This is the case
for the shooting which took p)lace
daring the carnival which was held
here about six months ago.
The .affidavit on which the arrest
was made was sworn out by W. Boyd

As a basis for making returns for
horses and mules they were divided
into four elasses-$100, $75, $50, and
$10. Cows were divided into three
classes-.$25, $15, and $5. These fi
gures were adopted simply as a- bas
is. In some cases mules and horses
were returned as high as $150. No
basis, of course, could be fixed as to
t)he valuation of other property ex
cept that it is generally understood
that property owners in making re
turns have endeavored to return their
property at about 60 per cent of its
value. In a great many eases the as
\sessments are much below 60 per ceat
and in some few no doubt they are
abo e that per cent.
To equalize the taxation of pr.
perty is a very perplexing problem,
and,. of course, can never be accurate
