The Son of a Respectable Citizen of Salem
On the evening of the 7th, the fol
lowing telegram was received by Sher
iff Lesesne from Kingstree: "Arrest
C. H. Shembrell or any one calling at
express office for money package from
A. J. Salineas & Son on draft from
Benjamin Bros." J. A. KEEYr.
By the next mail Mr. N. A. Hall re
ceived this letter which explains the
December 7th, 1887.
N. A. Hall, Esq., Manning, S. C.
Danui Sm: Am informed by A. J.
Salineas & Son, of Charleston, S. C.,
party by name of C, S. Chembrel has
sent a draft purporting to be drawn
by us on A. J. Salineas & Son for sum
of $250, that he has sent them the
draft, asking of them to forward the
package of money to Manning, S. C.
This draft is a forgery. In the inter
est of law and order, take the necessa
ry steps and have arrested any one
who calls at express office in that name
for that amount of money. Move
quietly in the matter and advise us
Very truly, BF .mm BRos,
The telegram and letter was caused
by some one giving his name as C. H.
Schembrell attempting to torge a draft
of Benjamin Bros., of Kingstree, on A.
J. Salineas & Son, of Charleston. The
draft was sent by mail with a letter di
recting the Messrs. Salineas to ex
press the money to Manning. T!'is
request aroused suspicion and Benja
min Bros were telegraphed, and the
forgery discovered. Immediately the
notifications above were sent out. The
matter was kept quiet and nothing oc
curred until Saturday when a man en
tered the depot, thinking the express
office was there, and asked for an ex
press package for C. H. Schembrell.
He was told where to find the officer
and Mr. Hall, the depot agent, hasten
ed up town to notify the sheriff. He
did not go directly to the express of
fice and the sheriff arrested him in a
crowd on the square fronting the
Court-house. The sheriff says be ac
costed him as Mr..Schembrell and he
seemed very much startled and said
his name was D. A. Reardon. He was
carried first to the guard-house and
fron there conveyed to the county
jail, where he now is awaiting a war
rant from Charleston.
Reardon denies all knowledge of the
forgery and says he was asked by a
man a stranger, whom he had never
seen, to enquire at the express office
for a package for C. H. Schembrell.
He said he was to keep the money
until the man called for it. His tale
is very confused and contains no ex
planation unless he can find the miss
ing Schembrell. M. J. Hirsch, Esq.,
and Mr.- Benjamin, of Kingstree,
were in town Monday for the purpose
of holding a preliminary in Reardon's
case, but the trial justice here very
proprly refused to sit in the matter
as the locus in quo of the crime is in
Reardon is the son of Mr. Daniel E.

The Rev. Mr. Law who is the can
assing agent in this State and North
Carolina for the American Bible Soci
ety, of New York, delivered an address
in the Methodist church Sunday af
ternoon in the interest of this society
nd for the purpose of re-organizin~g
he auxiliary branch formerly exsting
here. The speaker exhibited a thor
:ugh knowledge of his work; he prov
ed that the American Bible Society is
the greatest factor in the land for dis
seminating the Gespel and without its
assistance the best efforts of the
Churches and their ministers, weaken
ed for the want of means, would prove
abortive in their missionary labors.
At the conclusion of the address thir
ty-five names were secured and the
following officers were elected : Pres
ident, Rev. H. M. Mood; Vice-Presid
ents, 1;evs. T. J. Rouke, and James
McDowell; Treasurer, Mr. J. T.
Stukes; Secretary, Mr. R. S. Connor;
Executive Committee, the offices elect
ed and Messrs. J. W. McLeod, James
. Davis, and B. S. Dinkins.
The interest manifested in the aux
iliary society is indicative that great
good will be accomiplished in this
county. When the membership in
ereses and the organization is in thor
ough working order a colporter will
be put in the field to canvass the coun
ty visiting every househol and sell a
Bible where there is none at the cost
of publishing, and where the house
hold is too poor to buy one, a Bible
will be given away. It is proposed to
carry on this good work uzftil there is
not a home in the borders of Claren
don county without the Word of God.
On Monday the Executive Commit
tee met in the ofliee of the Clerk of
the Court, and arranged and planned
the work of the Society for the next
year. An order for Bibles was made
through Rev. Mr. Law. The drug
store of Messrs. W. E. Brown & Co.,
was selected as the depository for the
books, with Mr. E. E. Dickson, depos
itary. It wvas ordered that the Socie
t meet annually and the next nmeet
i~ng appointed for about the middle of
December 1868. An address on the
Bible will be delivered then by some
minister or layman to be elected for
(the purpose. ~The Executive Com
mittee will meet again in March.
