WEDNESDAY, January I, 1890.
Eighteen hundred and eighty-nine,
with all its good things and its evils,
is numbered with the past. To many
of us it has brought scenes of joy
and brightness, while to others it has
brought the saddest messages of their
lives. But the old year is past, and
eighteen hundred and ninety with all
its bright outlooks is here to stay for
twelve months. TH: TLNEs has no
-new promises to make. We shall en
deavor in the future, as in the past,
to be progressive.
We wish to each and every one of
our subscribers a year full of joy and
gladness, the happiest year of all their
THE BARNWELL LYNCHING.
The lynching of the eight negroes
in the Barnwell jail, presents, inde
pendent of the ghastly violation of the
law, a horrifying aspcct to every man
who has aught of conscience about
him. The deed is done ; the negroes
have been hurled headlong into an
eternal hell ; the murder of several
white men has been revenged ; the
poor, weak, impotent dignity of the
State has been trampled under foot :
but how about the lynchers? The
mingled curses and prayers of the
victims; their groans; their
tortuous writhings, while tied
to the trees, with the loaded
guns and pistols onjy a few
feet from their bodies ; their death
struggles, and the hollow, dying, gur
gling sounds, will never, pever be ef
faced from the memories of these
lynchers. It is not improbable that At
the first volley some poor wretch was
not killed, and to end his sufferings a
second volley was fired at him. These
memories will cling to every one of
those lynchers, by day and by night.
But what was the justification, the
exasperation ? The case is not without
some merit. Prominent white citizens
had been killed, and less than ten days
before two white men had been assas
sinated. If lynching is ever in such
eases justifiable, this was one of the
cases. .But the account says that they
lynched not only the accused murder
era, but also two men who were charg
ed as being witnesses only. That'is
the worst feature in the whole case.
Who did it? About twenty-five men
from and near the town of Barnwell.
Wet do not believe that there was any'
.e reat multitude of horsemen, but only
prominent man in the town of Barn
Y'well knows. The Governor has offered
a reward of $200 for the conviction of
each one of the lynchers. He will nev
er have one cent of this reward to pay.
-But the lynching will have its effect,
and murder in Barnwell will cease.
To that extent great good will be ac
We are no apologist for lynch law,
Sbut the actions, or rather inactions, of
our juries, give cause for it. And
:ab same men who as jurors, would
perjure themselves in b'ringing in a
false verdict, would be the very ones
to head a lynching party. Lynch law
means, and is an evidence of, a dis
trust in the administration of the stat
~ te laws.
~>~The New York Herald says there is
Sno doubt that since the election of
3 Mr. -Harrison the feeling between
white and black in the South has be
come strained. Why? No one can tell;
at least no one has given an explana
tion of the curious fact that while un
~der Mr. Arthur and Mr. Cleveland
Ab.tere was a continuous growth of
goZ~od feeling, suddenly, in the present
Xyear, all that previous years had done
seems to be undone.
It is stated that Judge Kershaw is
sued an order at the last term of court
in Barnwell, ordering the Sheriff to
guard the jail. It is further stated that
the county commissioners refused to
pay these deputies. These prisoners
have been killed in consequence. Now
suppose the sheriff and county com
missioners of Barnwell be arrested for
Sthe killing of these prisoners? Such a
ce'.rse seems just and proper. But
then, alas, suppose such was done. It
is not improbable that the lynchers
would be the jury, and of course noth
ing could be done.
We agree fully with the Charleston News
and Courier that the funeral of Jefferson
Davis is "without a parallel in history."
Lincoln and Grant each had burials that
were marvels of display, and the pomp~ and
pageantry were probably unrivalled. But
one was assassinated and the other was the
victorious soldier, and both were idols of
the North. Lincoln was ,murdered while
President. But how different with the great
Davis. Uncrowned, an old man, a poor
man, a defeated leader, and without a coun
try, and yet what a tribute-what a great
testimonial of admiration !--Er.

[Chareson Sunday News.]
BARNWELL, December 28.-Between
2 and 4 o'clock this morning, about
one hundred armed masked men
broke the county jail here and took
out eight negro prisoners, carried
them to the woods three-quarters of a
mile off, tied them to trees and shot
them to death. The negroes who were
killed are: Ripley Johnson, Mitchell
Adams, Judge Jones, Robt. Phonix,
Hugh Furz, Harrison Johnson, and
THE JAILOR'S STORY.
How the prisoners were taken from
jail is best told by Jailor Nevill's state
ment, which he gave to the News and
Courier to-night, as follows:
About 2.30 or 3 o'clock this morn
ing some one applied at the gate,
claiming to have a prisoner. I got up
and opened the window and asked
who was that. Some one in the crowd
said, "My name is Black, from Mar
tin's Station, with a prisoner," and
said "come out and take him." I told
them to hold on until I got ready. He
said he was in a hurry'about it. I told
him if he could not wait until I got
outside to take him to go on with him.
I dressed quickly and went out as usu
al to receive a prisoner. I unlocked
the gate and as I opened the gate a
mob of masked men rusbed in on me.
They demanded the prisoners from
Martin's Station and then asked me
where they were. I told them they
were in jail. They told me to go and
unlock the doors and point them out
to them. By this time they took the
keys from me by forcing them out of
my hands, but told me to go and un
lock the doors. I told them I would
not, that they must unlock them them
selves as they had the keys. The
crowd then went to the door of the
jail with the keys and unlocked the
door and shoved. me in the jail ahead
of them. As I struck the second jail
gate which is of iron they told me to
take the keys and unlock it. I told
them I would not do it. They said if
I didn't unlock the door they would
shoot me, and drew pistols on ine. I
told them I could not unlock that gate.
They then sent down to the yard for
an axe, and said if I did not open it
they would knock the whole d-d
thing open and let all the prisoners
out. Just before the crowd got to the
gate that leads to the cells and rooms
I told them if they were determined
to go into the jail to give me the keys
and I would unlock the gate, but ask
ed them not to turn out any prison
ers other [than those they wanted.
There were thirty prisoners in the jail
at the time.
THE VICTIMS OF THE MOU.
. They themselves took the key, un
locked the door, went into the jail and
took out first Mitchell Adams, who
was charged with the murder of J. J.
Heffernan. Then three of them carried
out Judge Jones, Robt. Phoenix, Pe
ter Bell, Hugh Furz, Harrison John
son, and Ralph Morral, all colored.
Bell was charged with the murder of
Robt. Martin, who was mysteriously
killed at Martin's Station, S. C.,_last
Satn~igh urz wsi inor an
accessory to che kilHng, and Ralph
Morral and Robt. Phoenix were held
as witnesses, but supposed to have
been accessories to the crime. Judge
Jones and Harrison Johnson were held
as witnesses. The crowd next roped
the eight prisoners, brought them
down stairs and carried them out into
the- streets and marched them through
the principal streets, compelling me to
go with them. We got seventy yards
across Turkey Creek, which is about a
quarter of a mile. They stayed there
some fifteen or twventy minutes, and
the crowd asked the prisoners a good
many questions. After talking to the
prisoners I heard the crowd say :
"Well, kill them right here." I asked
the guard who had me in charge to
carry me back to the bridge, as I did
not want to see the negroes killed.
The crowd that had me said I should
not go back.
ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY SHOTS.
About this time two or three men
ran up, caught hold of me and told
the guards who had me in charge to
go and carry me back to the bridge.
One man on each side of me walked
me back to the bridge and I and the
guard sat down there twenty-five or
twenty minutes before the crowd left
me, and about thirty minutes after
they were gone from where I was sit
ting they commenced firing am1 it
seemed to me they kept firing five or
six minutes. I imagine 150 shots were
fired in that time. The guard then ad
dressed me by saying, 'Let's go up the
road where the party are firing.' Then
I mounted a horse that a man came
algng leading, and I rode up the road
-some two hun-Ired and fifty yards be
fore the firing ceased. We went a fewv
steps further when we met the crowd
returning to town. The crowd escort
ed me back to town and bidding me
good-night said I could go to bed or
go tell the sheriff that they had wound
it up. The crowd then dispersed."
Jailor Nevills afterwards said to your
representative that he was armed
when the mob came to the jail, but
they took his weapon from him.
THE cAL AFTER THE STORM.
U;pon my arrival here to-night I
found the town very quiet and order
ly. My first visit was to the jail, which
is located in a secluded spot in the
southeast part of the town. After a lit
tle trouble in gaining admission I
found the jailor sitting with his famn
ily around the fire conversing with
Sheriff Lancaster about the outlook.
Mr. Nevills, the jailor, is 50 years old
and rather active. No blame can be
attached to him for surrendering his
prisoners, as he was powerless in the
beginning, not suspecting any out
break. Fortunately for him his family
was not at home last night.
THE SCENE OF THE LYNCH1NG.
From the jail your representativ'e
went out to the field where the killing
took place. The bodies were lying on
the roadside. When we reached there,
at 9 o'clock, the bodies of Johnson and
Adams had been removed, but the
others were lying there undisturbed.
The mobh divided the murderers, put
ting the Heffernan slayers on the left of
the road and the Martin murderers on
the right. The negroes' arms were
pinioned and tightly tied to trees with
They were not suspended in the air,
however. Mitchell Adams was tied to
the post which marksthe corporate
limits of Barnwell. Just to his right
his accomplice, Ripley Johnson, was
fastened to a tree. The Martin mur
derers on the other side of the road
were arranged in line. Some of the ne
groes were old men, Morral possibly
being 60 years old, and Peter Bell was
about the same age. As your corres
pondent viewed the corpses to-night,
their frames were exposed, their
clothes having been partially removed
by physiciaus and the curious crowd.
Some of the negroes had their eyes
shot out ; others were wounded in the
chest and face. Blood covered the
ground upon which they laid, and a
more horrible sight could not be be
held by mortal man. The bodies of
all the negroes were brought to town
to-night and carried to the guard
house, where they will remain until to
morrow, when they will be buried.
THE CORONER S INQUEST.
Acting Coroner Hammill had an in
quest this afternooa, and the verdict
of the jury was the usual verdict in
such cases, that they came to their
death from gunshot wounds at the
hands of parties unknown.
A LUCKY ESCAIE.
Sam Lee and Alfred Gantt, two ne
groes who are in jail as accessories to
the murder of Heffernan, strange to
say, were not troubled by the mob. It
is said that the crowd caught hold of
Lee, but several in the mob protested
against his being carried out, and so
he was left unmolested. Lee and Gantt
however, were badly frightened, and
have not entirely gotten over the scare
ALL QUIET AT MIDNIGHT.
At midnight to-night all is quiet
and peaceable and but few people are
on the streets. The vigilance commit
tee is out patrolling and no further
trouble is anticipated. The murder of
Heffernan by Ripley Johnson, aided
by Mitchell Adams, in Barnwell, and
the killing of Martin, at Martin's Sta
tion, by the suspected other six ne
groes who were lynched, is too well
known to the public for the particu
lars to be repeated here. To sum up
the whole affair, the whites were get
ting tired of having negroes shooting
and killing whites without being pun
ished by the law. The continuance of
the tijal of the Heffernan murderers
at the last term of Court has consider
ably aggravated the peop:e, and doubt
less led them to this revenge.
It is impossible to find out who were
in the mob, and where theylcame from.
The negroes here do not believe that
the Barnwell people had a hand in it.
This wholesale massacre of to-day will
attract the attention of the whole coun
try, and Barnwell's bloody record of
to-day has never been equalled. This
is the first lynching that has ever tak
en place in the county.
A LAwYER'S STATEMENT.
Mr. Duncan Bellinger, who is one
of the attorneys for the defence of
Ripley and Adams, says that there is
now on the records of the Court at
Barnwell an order directing the Sheriff
to piotect the jail. He said that, not
withstanding this, there was no guard
at the jail on Friday night. He fur
ther stated that it was well under
stood that if the prisoners had been:
taken out of jail for arraignment they
certainly would have been lynched.
Mr. Bellig~ir further said that this
condition oTlaffairs was represented to
the presiding Judge (Kershaw) in the
presence of the solicitor. That the
Judge appreciated the danger. That
an informal order was framed asking
for a continuance, and that on that
paper the cases were continued. Mr.
Bellinger believes that the comnmuni
ty of Barnwell knewv, or should have
known, that the prayer of continuauce
was not to defeat the ends of justice,
but in order that a crime might not
be perpetrated, perhaps in the pres
ence of the Court. Judge Kershaw i
reported as having said that if such a
thing should happen he would never
visit the county again. Mr. Bellinger
said that originally an order had been
passed by the Court instructing the
Sheriff to guard the prisoners. After
the adjournment, when it was believ
ed that all danger was removed, th e
guards were withdrawn because the
county commissioners refused to pay
the sheriff's deputized officers at the
jail. A new order was then gotten out
instructing the sheriff again, but the
commissioners refused to pay the
deputies. It was an easy thing,
therefore, for the lynchers to enter on
Friday night. The responsibility for
the crime has, therefore, many pha
ses; the intensified feeling against the
prisoners on account of the multipli
cation of murders in the county ; the
withdratwal of the guards, and the be
lief that justice woukd never be attain
ed. Whether any or all of these is a
justification is another question which
will probably be settled by' public

brave, public-spirited citizen, was sho o
and killed in ]Uarntwell by negroes. Public
indignation ran very high ;threats of lynch
ing were freely made, but diverted by cooler
counsel. At the last term cf court the grand
ury found true bills against the murderer
and his access;ories, but the ceases were con
tinued. The white pecople were disappoint

boldened by this disposition of the matter.
On the 19th of December, Mir. James S.

What is Scrofula
It is that impurity in the blood, which, accumu
lating in the glands of tho neck, produces un
sightly lumps or swellings; whisch causes painful
running sores on the arms, legs, or feet; which
developes ulcers in the eyes, ears, or nose, often
causing blindness or deafness; which is the origin
of pimples, c'mcerous growths, or many other
manifestations usually ascribed to "humors."
It is a more formidable enemy than consuamption
or cancer alone, for scrofula combines thu wourst
possible features of both. Being the most ancient,
it is the most general of all diseases or affections,
for very few persons arc entirely free from it.
How can it be cured ? Dy taking Hlood's Sarsa
parilla, which, by the cures it has accomplished,
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven itself to be a potent and peculiar medicine
for this disease. For alt affections of the blood

cures it has effected are really wonderful. If you
suffer from scrofula In any of its various forms,
be sure to give Hood's Sarsaparilla a trial.

THE AUDITOR'S OFFICE WILL BE
Lopen from the first day of January,
18U0, to the twentieth day of February, 1890,
to receive returns of real and personal prop
ertv for taxation in Clarendon colnty for the
year 1890, and for the convenience of tax
payers will have deputies at each of the
places named below to receive returns for
the said year:
Pinewood, Wednesday, January 1, 1890.

1teal estate is assessedt this year, 1890.
And all parties owning laud, lots, and build
ings will lease look up) their dleeds, where 3
necessary, and get the right number of
acres, lots, and huilings that they may own
on thc Iirst day of January, 1890. All build
ings of any sort, that are worth ten dollars sto
or over, are to be returned.
A good way for the taxpayer, who has
much property to return, is to make a mem
oran dumi of each butlding and its value, the
number of horses, cattle, mules, sheep and
goats, hogs, watches, organs and pianos, .
buggies, wyagens and carriages, dogs, nmer
chandise, machinery, nmoneys, notes and ac
counts (above indebtedness), furniture, &c.,
which will save the taxp~ayer time, and ena
ble the assessor to progress in the work.
Ta::payers return what they own on the
irst d.ty of January, 1890.
Asse sscers and taxpayers will enter the first
given name of the taxpayer in full, also
make a separate return for each party for
the towvnship the property is in, and where
the taxpayer owns realty to insert the post
office as their place of residence, and those
who only own piersonal property to give the
party's name who owns the land they live
on as their residence, wvhich aids the tax
payer as wvell as the county treasurer in
making the cllection and preventing errors. joh
Every male citizen between the ages of
twenty-one and fifty years on the first day
of January 1890, except those incapable of
earning a support from being imainied, or
from other causes, shall be deemed taxable
All returns that are made after the twen- in
tieth day af February next have to be placed voi
on the additional list and fifty p~er cent.
penalty added thereto, unless prevented by
sikness or out of the county during the
time of listing. Not knowing the time of
listing is no excuse. And all owners of!
real estate might do their tenants, who can- ft
not read or take a newspaper, a great favor
byx making their returns or telling themr the
time of listing, and that if they fail to make
their returns in time illt thre valuation has
to be. increased tifty per cent. unless th y
have a good excuse.
TIhe assessing and collecting of taxes is
all done nowv in the same year, and we have
to aggregate the number and value of all
the horses, cattl', moub-s, ke., as well as the
acres of land, lots and buildinrgs and their
value, that there is in the counuty and hi:Lve
the samre on tile in the Compltroller Genuer
al' otlice by the thirtieth day of .June each He
year. And froim that time to the lirst day cht
of October each year the auditor's an:d t reas
urrs duplicate hias to he c'omplettd and an
abstract of the work ini the Comptroller's
c'lice by that timea, which wdrl shrou; at a -
glance that the auditor has no time to take
in returns%, or do anything else mouch, he
tween the tirst day ol M1arch and the lirst
day ot October each year, but work on the
ooks anid blinks. 'Therefore hope that all
tapyrs will 1o us thre fauvor of iking 7bo
their returns in time.
