itively identified as the right man.
The identification took place while the
mob was searching the woods, the
negro having been located in a butch
er shop by Constable Haynes. Before
the mob returned from its fruitiess
search the negro had been placed in
an automobile, driven by Melvin Ash
ley, and was oi his way to the county
jail here. About 9.30 o'clock Jack
son was pdged in jail.
A telephone message from Honea
Path stated that the angry mob was
increasing rapidly in numbers and
that it was likely the crowd would
-*ome to Anderson to storm the jail.
Prisoner Rushed to Greenville.
Sheriff King then barricaded the
jail, calling in his deputy sheriffs and
several policemen, who were armed
with Winchester rifles. Sheriff King
then hit on the plan of spiriting the
negro away and in Dr. W. F. Ash
more's automobile, in charge of Deputy
Sheriff Martin and Policeman Holland,
the negro was hurried to Greenville.
The car carrying the negro left An
derson at 12.45 o'clock. Twenty min
utes after the negro had been spirited
away, more than a hundred heavily
armed men arrived in the city. Some
-came on the trolley car, some in au
tomobiles and the others on the train.
They gathered together and proceeded
toward the county jail. They were
then told that the prisoner had been
placed in an automobile and that he
was then on his way to Greenville.
dob Continues Pursuit.
The mob was evidently greatly dis
appointed on being outwitted, but un
der the leadership of Citizen Josh Ash
ley, who had arrived in a large auto
mobile, they mobilized again, entered
automobiles and started in pursuit.
The officers had departed twenty min
.utes in advance. There were a dozen
-or more automobiles occupied by the
T4e distance from Anderson to
-Greenville is 37 miles and the -roads
are heavy and muddy on account of a
hard rain last night. At Piedmont, 22
miles from Anderson, the mob had
gained eight minutes On the officers,
being only 12 minutes belhind them.
The officers passed -Piedmoit at 1.04
o'clock. and arrived at. Greenville at
The first car of the mot arrived in
that city just tive minutes later, but at
that 'time the prisoner was on his way
to Spartanbu rg. Sheriff King had
telephoned to Sheriff Poole, at Green
ville, and the latter had in readiness
.a large automobile. A transfer from
the old machine was made in a twink
Itng of an eye -and the big car then
started for Spartanburg, 40 miles dis

The little girl'is in a critical condi
tion. She was badly bruised, terribly
lacerated and was greatly shocked.
She displayed an unusual amount of
nerve, however in looiKing at the three
negroes brought before her for iden
tification. The father of the lass is
engaged in the lumber business in
southwest Georgia and was,away from
bome at'the time. He was telegraph

HIonea Path tomorrow. The mother
of the little girl is dead, having been
ac,cidentally shot by her husband sev
eral years ago. The girl lived with
her stepmother. 'Until recently her
father was engaged in the mercantile
business at Homea Path.
Before it was learned at Honea Path
that an angry mob was in -pursuit of
the negro, Mayor Sullivan telephoned
to Gov. Blease, asking for a special
term of court to try the negro. At
that time the negro was in jail and
the governor stated that he would or
der the special term on the request,of
Solicitor Bonham. It is not known
here tonight, however, whether or not
the special term will be necessary, as
no word has been received from Spars
tanburg concerning the prisoner.

on receiving word, over the long dis
tance telephone, that officers, accom

mnob in automobiles, Sheriff White,
vCapt. of Police Moss Hayes, Lieut.
Jack Alverson, and others, set out in
Sautomobiles to meet the officers and1
prisoner and escort them to the jail
in this city. On reaching Duncan,
-however, they learnod' that there wa
no use in going any farther, that the
mob had been successful in taking the
prisoner fr'om the officers and had
-started back with him. The Spartan
-burg jail is the best in the State and
ona the officers arrived here there
would probably have been no lynch
