THE MANNIG TIES.
Maimising, M. C.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 1889.
CAPT. F. W. DAWSON.
Hero worship in all ages has been
common, and when a man by force of
character, or by any extraordinary
achievements, is raised to some high
eminence, all applaud. Such aman was
Capt. F. W. Dawson, late editor of the
hecs and Courier. His name was fa
miliar to every intelligent household
in the State, and throughout the Union
his views and opinions were held in
high esteem. No other man in this
State had as great influence or as
mnch power, and, taking all things
into consideration, he had not a peer
in the State. All men, even his most
bitter enemies, admired him, and col
umns could be filled, sounding his
many achievements. But he is gone,
stricken down in the very prime of
manhood, and by a' craven, cowardly
libertine and defiler of woman's pu
rity; stricken down even while en
deavoring to shield the weak, to pro
tect a woman from what damns her
in earth and heaven.
An account of the murder will be
found on our first and fourth pages.
All-is still wrapped in mystery. It is
said that Miss Smith, a woman stay
ing at the home of McDow, has made
a written statement to the effect that
after the pistol shot, she ran to the
door, and that Capt. Dawson was sit
ting up in a chair, gasping for breath,
and begged her for God's sake to give
him a drink of water. She ran off
to get it, but when she got back, Mc
Dow had locked the office door, and
would not let her in. The coroner's
jury rendered a verdict of death by
a pistol in the hands of Dr. McDow.
His coachman was arrested and is
held as an accessory after the fact. It
is thought an attempt was made to
bury Dawson, and then try to con
ceal the matter. Capt. Dawson's hat
was found in a sink in the water
closet, some distance to the rear of
McDow'e house. The case will prob
ably be tried nest June.
The city of Charleston and the
State of South Carolina has lost one
of its best, noblest, and most power
A BANK FOR BANNING.
Manning needs and is now in a fair
-way of having a bank. Capt. Levi a
few days ago took a subscription pa
per around with him, and in a very
short time he had nearly $25,000 sub
scribed. Twice that sum will be cap
ital enough to begin on. The bank is
an assmed fact, and will be in opera
tion in time for the cotton trade next
fall. The following from the Charles
ton World of yesterday will be of in
- -terest in this matter:
Captain A. Levi. a prominent- ayer of
Manning, was registered at .be Charleston
Hotel last night. Capt.u-n Levi is in the
city partly on prate business, and partly
for the ppseof looking after the interests
eofaie ban heds seeking to establish at
He was seen last night by a World report
~er, to whom be spoke quite freely about the
3roqeets of the proposed new bank, and
sof the prospects of the growing county-seat
'of Clarendon generally.
"We are pushing right ahead tc organize
1the bank," said the Captain inretponse to a
reuery, "and-our prospects are just as fine
.swe could wish. Although we have been
'working itu& for but a short time, nearly
ese-hl ofe stock has already been sub
scribed by the citizens of Manning, and we
are working foi other and larger subscrip
-l ions from the monied men of the country
at targe. We have not tried to dispose of
any ot the stock in Charleston yet, although
I have no doubt there are a large number of
capitalists here who would take big blocks
of the stock without hesitation, and be glad
to etit. Manning is a live, growing town,
and needs a bank now more than anything
else, and it would be an institution that
would pay handsomely. We are anxious,
however, to keep the controlling interest at
home, and consequenltly are trying to get
considerably more than half of the stock
taken at Mannmng and in Clarendon county
before seeking subscribers abroad.
"'At present," he continued, "the mer
ebants of Manning and the farmers of the
whole eountyv are compelled to shp all their
eetton to Charleston, which is the only mar
ket they have, as they have only one rail
smad, that one leading to this city. But if we
had abank atthe counltyseat, it would at
tract cetton buyers, who could afford to set
ie in the town, bringing with them a reviv
- siof trade, and helping us yery much in a
number of other ways. At present Charles
ton and Sumter get very nearly all the trade
of the county, either directly or indirectly,
but with a bank we could centralize it at the
court house, and the result would be that
Manning would take a start in growth that
she has not known for years."
BAD ROADS AND BRLIDGES.
* In another column wil be found a
communication from Mr. T. Adams
.Way, disclaiming any responsibility
for the condition of any bridges or
roads, other than those in certain
townships he names.
Mr. B. Conyers Horton has charge
of the causeway across Pocotaligo.
We have interviewed him on the sub
jeet, and invited him to give the pub
lic his reasons for the roads being in
no better condition. We understood
him to a'ay he would do so, but not
having received any communication
from him we conclude he does not
care to go before the public on the
- matter. We have not seen, nor do
we know of the condition of the cause
way, but every day complaints are
made at this office about it.
Mr. T. J. Cole and Mr. D. M. Brad
bami especially are loud in their com
plaints, considering the causeway in a
very dangernus condition. They say
there are three whashouts across the
'causeway, each about ten or twelve
feet wide, and from one to three feet
deep;that they are almost impassa
ble, crossing being done at great rnsk
to life and property.
Mr. Bradham says they would be
put in tolerably good repair, by put
ting down some stringers, and putting
boards across them. It would cost
something, but the needs and conve
inii o the iai. should be con-.
sidered. We hear that other parties
in town, who came near sustaining
serious losses, are very much dis
turbed about the -condition of this
Another gentleman of this place,
who has occasion to cross right often,
says he does not think the causeway
can be repaired till the water falls.
Mr. Horton says nothing can be done
till the water falls, and that then he
will do what is necessary.
Good roads are a necessity. The
unexpected will come, but every effort
possible should be done to keep the
roads passable. The long continued
rains have been very trying on all the
roads, and is some excuse for their
bad condition, but we want, need, and
must have good roads.
We are informed that some work
men were at the causeway yesterday
attempting to do what they could to
repair the causeway. Let us hope
they will succeed.
The twelfth annual convention of
the Young Men's Christian Associa
tions of South Carolina will be held at
Greenville, S. C., April 11-14.
Boodle gave Wannamaker his place
in the Harrison Cabinet. It is said
that he contributed $40,000 to the
corruption fund, and of course was
entitled to something.
Walker Blaine, a young lawyer, and
son of Secretary of State J. G. Blaine,
has been nominated by Harrison to
be assistant attorney general for the
secretary of State. He succeeds one
of the best lawyers in the United
States, while it is said young Blaine
is a weak lawyer. The nomination is
considered very poor, and possibly
done for the purpose, that the elder
Blaine may easily "cast an anchor to
Joe James, a white demon incar
nate, of Darlington county, was con
victed last week of hiring some ne
groes to murder his father, and has
been sentenced to be hanged. The
murder occurred last year. It seems
almost impossible to believe that a
man could sink so low as to hire a
negro. to kill his old father, that he
might come in possession of a few
hundred dollars worth of property.
Rutherford B. Haves recently in
formed a reporter of a Cincinnati
paper that he received fifty letters a
day from applicants for office under
the new administration. The fact
that Mr. Hayes called on the Presi
dent on the day after his inauguration
must account for this flood of impor
tunity. The average office-seeker
makes it a rule to get the help of ev
erybody in sight-even of a harmless
man like Ex-President Hayes.
The cigarette nuisance and evils re
sulting from this habit are rapidly
growing into fearful proportions. New
York physicians say that it promotes
nervous affections, interferes with the
digestion, induces insomnia, leads to
muscular debility, causes diseases of
thc-nouth and eyes, and blunts the
mental powers. It befouls the air,
leaves a taint upon the garments, and
creates a thirst for liquor. It is in
every way an injury, and in no way a
benefit, says the Atlanta Constitution.
It is said that the Edgefield jury
that recently made a mistrial in the
case of Jones, the murderer, were en
gaged the night before the trial in a
game of cards with the murderer.
What justice can be done when it is
to be meted out by jurors who the
night before the trial engage in
drinking and gambling with the pris
oners? It is said that the Edgefield
jailor furnishes cheap board, and that
the jurymen generally stop with him
Jones had the run of the jail. Con
sequently prisoner and jury were
thrown together in one happy family.
Such is justice! Good Lord, deliver
A Large Establishment-Thie Maicinniery
--Monthly Pay Roil-Raises HIs own
Clarendon county contains proba
bly more lumber mills than any other
county in the State, and no mills in
the State are better equipped with
first-class machinery. One of the
largest is that of D. W. Alderman &
Co., situsted about four miles north
of Manning, on the Central railroad.
Alcolu is a new post office, and con
tains history in its name. The three
syllables, Al. Co-Lu, are respectively
the first syllables in Alderman, Col
well and Lula. Messrs. Alderman and
Colwell are the proprietors of the
mill, and the christian name of the
wife of each is Lula. Alcolu is a mail
and telegraph office. The express of
fice for that mill is Manning.
Four engines are employed at the
mill to run the machinery. Two saw
mills and a planing machine are kept
busy all the time. Mr. Alderman
claims that his planing machine is the
best in the State. A flooring-board
machine, specially adapted for mak
ing flooring, ceiling, wainscoting, and
weather-boarding, is kept busy all the
time to fill orders from the North.
Mr. Alderman is the pioneer in dryv
kilns, and has three at his milL These
kilns thoroughly dry and season the
lumber, by means of a continual blast
of hot air. His own mill does not
furnish enough lumber for his dry
kilns and platning machines, so that
he gets a large quantity of lumberI
from neighboring mills to keep these
An iron railroad ten miles long, on
which run two locomotives, is used!
for hauling the timber to the mill.
Thirty-seven mules are kept in the
woods, hauling the timber to the rail
road. About one hundred persons
are employed around and about the
will. The monthly expenses are
about $2500 to $3000. Mr. Alderman
runs a commissary in connection with
the mill, but, in addition to what he
takes in, at least $1000 cash is paid
the hands at the end of every month
which finds it way to Maining and
The product of the mill is about
three or four cars a day, most of which
is shipped North. A considerable
business is also done in cross ties,
which are hewed out in the woods.
Yellow pine is the only kind of tim
ber used. Mr. Alderman does a com
paratively .small local trade, but lie is
ready at any time to fill local orders,
and an advertisement of his else
where solicits such orders.
In addition to the mill at Alcolu,
Mr. Alderman has another mi:Int Trio,
on th, G. & W. R. R , where two sta
tionary engines, a locomotive and four
miles of railroad, and fifteen mules
are employed in the business.
Mr. Alderman is a mill man, but
he can make some of our corn buying
farmers blush. He raises on his own
farm about half the corn necessary to
feed his mules, and for other purposes.
It pays him to do it. Why not our
farmers also raise their own corn?
We cannot answer the question.
Mr. Alderman is a native of Duplin
county, N. C. Before he come to
Clarendon, he was engaged four
years in Marion county in the lum
ber business. He has been in this
county about four years, and is one
of the most substantial business men
in the county.
BAD BRIDGES AND ROADS.
County Commissioner Way not to Blame
for the Condition of Pocotaligo Bridges.
P..OLA, S. C., March 16, 1889.
Mn. EniTn:-I have carefully read
your article headed "Only a Mule."
The article is timely and suggestive.
It points directly to the county com
missioners. I admire your frank,
bold criticisms. It ought to do good.
I regret the damage to Mr. Huggins,
deplore the loss to Mr. Sprott. But
who is to blame? You say the "coun
tv commissioners." But are all of
them to be censured? It is the duty
of the people to hold strictly to ao
count their public officers. It is
furthermore the duty of the press to
call attention to evil, and warn the
people of any approaching danger.
?" this is right and proper in its
plece, but is there not more or less
danger of producing prejudice in the
minds of iudividu.Js, even when an
officer does all he can, as he may think
best for the public good.
In speaking of the recent damage
done to Mr. Sprott you state your
proposition very forcibly: "The
county commissioners possibly can
answer why poor horses must endure
such cruelty, and the people's prop
erty be put in such jeopardy." I only
propose to answer for myself indi
At an early meeting of the board the
county was divided into three sections,
each commissioner having so many
townships. The townships that fell to
my care and supervision are as follows:
Concord, St. Pauls, Friendship,
Calvary, Fulton, and Sunmy Swamp
north and West of running stream.
This embraces my work with road and
bridge duty. I have nothing to do
with roads and bridges beyond this
line of duty. While I regret auy ac
cidents which may cause the damage
of horse or mule on the public high
ways, and the necessary loss in money
to the county accruing from neglect,
at the same time I do not think it
just and right to give such publicity
as would include the whole board.
The first thing on assuming the du
ties of the office elected to by such a
complimentary vote of the people of
Clarendon, was to see that thme bridges
embraced in iny townships were safe
and secure. I took an expeienced
contractor and examined them care
fully. YE here I found work needed,
contracts were given out, and repairs
made promptly. You can travel here
day or night, with perfect security to
property, and without the danger of
loss of Ife. Even with all the dili
gence and care, trouble sometimes
come, and I do not think the county
commissioners should be blamed for
everything, things impossible for them
to foresee. Criminal neglect is inex
cnsable. Was this damage and loss
of mule of such a nature? If so I
have no more to say. But let the
responsibility rest where it belongs.
As to the public roads there is much
unnecessary clamor. The condition
of the roads are bad, 1 will admit.
They are in bad condition through
out my townships, the worst I ever
saw. But who can suggest a remedy?
It rains incessantly. No work can be
done, for the water covers the whole
face of the earth. We hope for bet
ter things,-to give the people good
roads. T. A. WAY.

TO HANG FOR HANGING.
Some of the Central Lynchers Convicted
GENVILLS, S. C., March 8.--The
end of the famous Central Lynching
case was reached at Pickens Wednes
day night, resulting in the acquittal
of the three men charged with the
lynching of the white man, Manse
Waldrop, and the conviction of three
The case is familiar, having been
published far and wide at the time of
its occurrence as furnishing the first
known instance of the lynching of a
white man by negroes for a crime
which the same punishment had come
to be meted out as by an unwritten
law in cases where the criminal was a
negro and the victim white. Manse
Waldrop, a half-witted white man,
was charged with felonious assault on
the thirteen-year-old daughter of Cato
Sherman, a negro man living near Cen
tral. He was given a preliminary
hearing before a trial justice at Cen
tral and committed for trial. Late in
the evening of December 30, 1887,
Waldrop was started to Pickens to be
placed in jail in charge of two consta
bles, one of whom was R. Gaylord Eat
on. Within a mile of Central, the of
ficers were halted by a party of ne
groes and their prisoner taken away
and hanged to a tree by the roadside
until he was dead.
The lynching created great excite
ment in the neighborhood and
throughout the county. Very soon
after the inquest over the body of
the victim, Waldrop, a number of ar
rests of negroes were made and one
white man, Gaylord Eaton, was taken
into custody. The case was called at
the spring term of court following
the lynching at Pickens, but was con
tinued. Negroes throughout the
State had held meetings and collect
ed funds to help defend the case, and
when it came up John M. Freeman,
a colored lawyer from Charleston,
was at Pickens in the interest of the
The lynchers were fially brought
to trial at the summer term of court
last year, and the hearing resulted in
a mistrial. The case then came up for
a second trial last Tuesday afternoon,
the six defendants being then ar
raigned as follows: Gaylord Eaton,
wite; William Williams, Cato Sher
man (father of the girl in the case),
Jno. Reese, Harrison Hevward, and
Henry Bolton. The five negroes had
been in jail since their arrest, fourteen
months, but Eaton had been out on
bond during that time. The trial was
ended Wednesday afternoon, after five
hours of speeches.
The jury, after being charged by
Judge Norton, went out with the case
about six o'cl->ek. For more than
four hours they were closeted and
fears began to arise of another mis
trial But about 11 o'clock P. M!. they
returned with their verdict. They
found Gaylord Eaton, white, and Coto
Sherman and John Reese, colored,
"not guilty," and they found William
Williams, Harrison Heyward and
Henry Bolton, all colored, "guilty'' of
the criine of murder and recommend
ed them to the mercy of the court.
It is said tha~t the verdict was a
compromise, some of the jury favor
ing the conviction of all the defen
dants and others advocating the ac
quittal of all. The trial was watched
with the intensest interest by a large
crowd. William Williams and Har
rison Heyward were sentenced to be
hanged on the 5th day cf April, and

THE ORPHAN'S HOME.
Rev. L. B. Payne, Agent an~d Trustee
of the Orphan's Home at Macon,
Ga., Writes a Letter Dated
February 5th, 1889.
"I have been using Swift's Specific
with the children of the orphan's
home under my charge with the best
results. I began its use between
nine and ten years ago, and have seen
many remarkable results.
Quite a number of the children
had constitutional blood diseases re
sulting from the sins of their parents
and every one of these children were
cured of the horrible taint by the use
of S. S. S.
There have also been scores of chil
dren in the institution whose systems
(they have been mostly without the
benefits of parental care) were ener
vated by dirt eating and other foul
practices. Every one of these chil
dren have taken S. S. S. and all have
been signally benefitted by it. All
have been cured who have taken
enough of it. We have also two in
mates of the home, subject to painful
recurring attacks of erysipelas.
Neither one improved under the
treatment usual for the disease.
When all other medicines were dis
earded and they took S. S. S. the cuie
