o'clock this morning. According to
the woman, Bowen was going in the

Arthur Bowen had been working for
this family all of this year. Monday,
the husband of the lady assaulted left
home on some business and left the
negro man picking cotton near the
house. About the same hour the men
folks of the two nearest neighbors left
for some farm duties away from home.
Seizing the moment that, perhaps, he
had been waiting for, it is said that he
entered the house and attempted to
commit the crime above mntioned.
Left Field Suddenly.
On being driven from the home, it
scs.s that Bowen went back to the
cotton field, but on the apprcNach of the
husband of the outraged lady, he drop
ped his cotton sack, walked rapidly to
his house, secured his gun and made
for a nearby swamp, thereby making
at least a temporary, escape.
As soon as the news reached Spring
field, a large body of men started a
hunt for the negro, but up to early
tonight he had not been captured.
Sheriff A. M. Salley, with several
deputies, came over from Orangeburg
in an automobile with the county
bloodhounds, which, as usual, proved
absolutely worthless. SeVeral hun
dred ruen are now scouring the count
try, but as Springfield is no near the
almost impenetrable swamp of the
1'disto river, it is a problem when
Bowen will be caught.
Arthur Bowen is a sma-ll, dark, gin

old;'small, stubby, black mustache.

feet; weight about 145; height 5 feet 5

Aiken, Oct. 24.-Three armed mem

trolled the swamp in the vicinity of
Springfield, in search of the negro, Ar
thur Bowen, who, it is alleged, attempt
ed to criminally assault. a white wo
man near Springfield yesterday, ar
rived in Aiken this morning on the
12.40 train and organized a )posse to
continue a search for the negro, who
is believed ~to have escaped into the
eastern porti*h of this county.
The Orangeburg sheriff arrived on
the scene of the a-lleged assault -and
mob early this morning, just after the
Aiken bound party left the scene. All
trains are being subjected to a rigid
inspection and the party in Aiken is of
the opinion that the capture will oc
cur some time tonight.
One member of the party is a broth
er of the young woinan who was the
victim of the alleged fiendish attempt,
and states that the assault was at
tempted yesterday morning about 11
o'clock, while his sister was alone in1
the yard. The 'young lady struggled
so violently and screamed for help so
earnestly that the negro biecame
reightened and fied before he could
acomplish his diabolical pui;pose, the
young man continued.
The alarm quickly spread through
ut the surrounding community, and a
posse of angry, determined men soon
formed and began the chase. Follow
