^ Among our very rich people in
^ America degeneration and bestiality
have gone so far that swapping wives |

I no longer what it ought to be, and the j

the mountains afford opportunities i
for getting acquainted with other j
men's wives and other women's hus-1
bands. Lust takes the place of love,
twith the result that divorce is soon j
arranged and the swap is perfected
under the forms of law. The women
are just as bad as the men and divorce
their husbands on any slight
P pretext, if they come across a man
they like better who makes love to !
A most disgraceful and mortifying
fact which every American must blush
for is to see how the American mil- I
lionaires are buying their daughters;
titled husbands. Some count, baron, j
or lord, no matter now much of a de- i
bauchee and scoundrel he may be, is ;
K looked up by the rich father and pur-:

The women submit to legal prostiru%

best interests of the women and of
tne country. The history of the world
is full of "crazes," or what they now
tat call obsessions. The crusades are an
illustration of what I mean.
Peter, the Hermit, a fanatical monk
who was very eloquent, aroused the
religious fervor of the Christians in
I Western Europe to such a pitch that
hundreds of thousands enlisted for
the Holy War against the Infidels. Xo
doubt this fervor was necessary to
prevent the Crescent from supplanting
the Cross. It was like two storms
coming from opposite directions and
meeting. The Saracens overran Egf-'pt
and Northern Africa, and crossed the
Strait of Gibraltar into Spain. They
crossed Spain and invaded France,
and were only beaten back by Charles ;
Martei, who aeieatea mem at me ua,itle
of the Tours. It was six centuries
before the Moors were expelled from
the Spanish Peninsula and compelled
to return to Afric%.
Later when the Turks had conquered
Constantinople the followers of the
Crescent overran Southeastern Europe
I up to t'ne walls of Vienna, where tne
r* rising tide of Mohammedanism was
only stopped by John Sobieski.
The recent war in the Balkans has
wrested almost all of that peninsula
from the Turks, but there was os little
Christianity, patriotism and sense
among the allied nationalities that racial
and religious prejudice and hatred*
brought on a patricidal strife

will kill the first man who advances
a step, though he should be my best
friend." W. J. White, sheriff of Spartanburg
county, thus addressed a mob
bent on lynching Will Fair, a negro
prisoner, accused of assaulting a
white woman, when a crowd of five
hundred men, after being repeatedly
repulsed iwth pistol shots, blew
down the gate in the outer wall of
the county jail late tonight with dynamite.
The mob were impressed with
cVioriff ooirl orifl rlicnorcpr?
It was reported that the mob proposed
to break into the armory of the
Hampton Guards, the local military
company, or into a hardawre store
and procure arms and ammunition
with which to renew the attack.
It was also reported that a detachment
of the mob had gone to the construction
camp of the Greenville,
Spartanburg and Anderson Railway
to get nitro-glycerine.
Earlier in the evening three men
were shot when efforts were made to
batter down the jail gate with logs
and steel rails. Sheriff White and a
deputy held the crowd at bay at first
by firing blank cartridges. Members of
the mob returned the fire with bullets,
however, and in the confusion and
darkness Frank Epply, J. C. Owensby
and John Turner were wounded,
though it is believed not seriously.
They were taken to a hospital. Hundrds
of pistol and rifle shots were fired
when the mob began to use dynamite,
but so far as can be learned only
one man, was wounded. A bullet
passed through his hand. His name
was not learned.
Governor Blease tonight refused a
request that he call out the militia to
protect Fair, but announced that he
would order a special tsrm of court to
try the negro. ,
Story of Alleged Crime.
Will Fairj a negro, was arrested this
afternoon charged with assaulting a
ly-year-oia wmie womau, uc<n twmvstone,
this morning. It was about
half-past 10 o'clock when the assault
is alleged to have been committed.
The young woman, a bride of last
Christmas, had been to a neighbor's
house. On her way home through a
patch of woods she saw a strange negro,
who. leered at her. Trembling,
she hurried on followed by the black.
She entered her home safe, and locked
the front door. Under her own
roof she gained assurance, and as the
negro naa seemingly cuuuuucu uu uio
way, she gave the matter no further
serious thought, but went to her bed
room and was brushing her hair when
the next chapter of the tragedy was
Suddenly she heard the footsteps at
her back and almost immediately a
hand, thrust from behind her was
pressed closely against uer muuiu,
another hand seized her by the neck,
and the rough voice of a negro said:
"If you yell I'll kill you." The girl then
threw every ounce of her energy into
an effort to escape from the negro's
clutches, but in vain. Picking
up a heavy stick, which lay on the
window sill, the black brought it down
for the purpose of directing attention
to the dangerous forces which are being
set in motion by those who are
preaching and agitating for woman's
I am aware that in reciting all these
horrid and cruel things I am chargeable
with making a jeremaid ornament
of the decay of our civilization. 10
others there may be no appearance of
decay at all. I may \)e blinded or giving
away to vain imaginings, but it
seems to me very real, and I speak my
thoughts frankly and bluntly as I have
always done, having been taught by
j my mother long ago to always tell the
| truth, or to try to, and to shun every,
thing like hypocricy and double-dealjing.
"Of all man's possessions unspeakably
most sacred are his symbols,"
and his highest earthly symbol is woman.
She is his goddess of innocence
and purity, and if ever she steps down
or man removes her from her high
, place at our altars, then God have
mercy upon us; for the golden bowl of
! purity will be broken, and the silver
chord of chastity will be loosed, and
the sound of mourning will be heard
i in the streets, and the rule of chaos
I and old night will have come.
I pray God my foreboding evil
: prorhpcies may never come true. I
would depart whert my time shall

upon her head itwh crushing force, and
the girl, bleeding from an ugly
j scalp wound, dropped like a dead per:
son. When she regained consciousness,
a half hour later she <:ad been
dragged to another part of the room.
The unfortunate raised berself unsteadily
to her feet, tainking to fire
| a shot gun, which was suspended
from the wall and thus summon her
husband. She swooned again as she
was reaching for the gun, and was lying
on the floor unconscious when her
husband happened to enter the house
a few minutes later.
The husband took his wife to his
father's house, a half-mile away,
called a doctor and then went to Glendale
and gave the alarm. About 500
people, including a number of Glendale
mill operatives started in search
of the negro, of wl.om a good description
was given by his victim. Sheriff
W. J. White headed one posse and
Chief Mose P. Hayes, of tne Spartanburg
police, another. A posse of
which SamueL J. Nichols, a well
known Spartanburg attorney, was a
member, found an old negro who said
he had been within fifty yards of
the scene of the assault a negro corresponding
in description to the as|
sailant, and told of the direction in
which the man was walking. He said
the n?jro tiny were seeking was
named Will Fair. Will Fair was traced
to Glendale, where he was seen to
board a car for Spartanburg. Other
clues were obtained which leu to the
I arrest of Fair several hours later at
the Southern Railway station in Spartanburg
by Rural Policeman J. M.
Williams. Officer Williams concealed
the negro in the bottom of an automobile,
which he pressed into service,
and carried him into the county jail
by the rear entrance before any but
one or two people knew of the arrest.
Fair denied that he was the negro
u;or>to^ hnt nffinprs said tonight they
felt confident t'lat the chase was over
and were only waiting for the identification
of Fair as her assailant by
the negro's alleged vicitim to "make
cure. When he learned of the assault
Mayor 0. L. Johnson ordered all the
social clubs to be closed for the day.
Failed to Get Arms.
Members of the mob broke into the
armory of a military company after
midnight and took seventeen rifles. A
militiaman with loaded rifle surprised
the marauders, and by threatening
to kill them, made them return the
Pair Landed in Penitentiary.
Columbia, August 19.?Chief Moss
P. Hayes, of the Spartanburg police
force, brought the negro, William
Fair, charged with criminally assaulting
a white woman in Spartanburg
county yesterday, here this
morning and placed him in the penitentiary
for safe-keeping. When Chief
j Hayes made affidavit that Sheriff
White, of Spartanburg, could not afford
ample protection to- the negro,
Governor Blease issued an order to
the penitentiary authorities to hold
him there for safe-keeping.
Chief Hayes slipped the negro out
of the back door of the Spartanburg
jail this morning a'nd placed him on
a train and took him to Charlotte,
from which place he brought his
I prisoner to Columbia. The chief said
that after the mob was beaten off by
j Sheriff White last night, and blew
j down an outer part of the wall sur!
rounding the jail, there was no fur

Had Ordered Special Term.
Governor Blease had only yesterday
| ordered that a special terra of the
! criminal court of Spartanburg counI
ty be convened on the 2d of September
to run for three weeks, if so much
I be necessary, in order to try some of
the criminal cases. Solicitor A. E. Hill
| had made the request for the special
term, stating that the jail was con|
gested, and Chief Justice Gary had
signed the order for the special term
to be held in September, beginning
the 2d. Last night Governor Elease
j told Solicitor Hill and the Spartan'
burg people of this special term and
the negro charged with the crime can
be given a speedy trial.
It is understood that the negro denies
the crime charged against him,
, but he is said to tally with the description
given by the lady.
