MANNING, S. C.
CONQUEST OF THE COOSAWS.
A Legend of the Early Days of Carolina
How King Benjie and Sancho Yjay
Routed a Fierce and Strong Tribe of
Savages and Took Possession of Their
Lands for the Stale.
[From the Carolina Spartan.)
The following story was found in
an old volume entitled "Annals, Tra
ditions, and Happenings in the New
World," printed in London, 1718. At
this particular time I thought it might
interest you and, perhaps, a few of
vour curious readers.
Once upon a time it came to pass
that a certain tribe, strong and fierce,
got possession of a valuable part of
the land, or rather water, belonging to
the royal and sturdy subjects of King
Benjie. This tribe, some of them at
least, came from a great distance. At
first, they were mild and sweet tem
pered and their words and acts show
ed them to be very harmless. When
they first came, Benjie was not King,
but the country was ruled by certain
tyrants, known as Ringmen. It was
in the beginning of their reign that
this strange tribe, who called them
selves Coosaws, after their manner of
speaking, began to show their power.
They went to the King's banquet halls
and council chambers, and finally by
fair words and much talk got permis
sion to pitch their tents on the banks
of a fair and lovely stream which they
called the Coosaw, after their own
name. There they lived in peace and
paid tribute to the Ringmen and grew
stronger every year. They built
themselves great houses and vessels
and formidable engines. They said
to various smaller tribes in the vicin
ity: "You keep away from the wa
ters of the Coosaw. We have a grant
from the mighty King of the Conga
ree which gives us the exclusive right
to this stream and all its belongings
After a long time of covetous look
ing on and longing for the rich treas
ures in the bottom of the Coosaw, the
smaller tribes united their forces and
hired learned men, skilled in the law,
to help them supplant the Coosaws.
heyesaeed to accomplish by strate
gy and chicanery that which they
:ogfd odo by force. Their persua
give indbamboozling had no in
ifuence on the dynasty of the Ring
men, who declared that they had made
a fair trade with the Coosaws, and if
a bad one they must stick the closer
to it. All their efforts were futile un
fil the dynasty of the Ringmen was
deposed by a new man; known as
King Benjie. The people rose up as
De man and said: "We are very
tired of .paying tribute to the puffed
p Ringsters and Bloated Boasters,
nd we will have none Lut Benjie to
rule over us." When he was crowned
n a high place in the presence of all
he people, these smaller tribes said:
Aaa now we've got 'em. Time's u~p
withtik Coosaws. They will have to
o and weiwill take their fair'and de
They then began in the most artful
way, with the assistance of learned
nen, tot depum'rent the -Coosaws.
Lhey soon'gained over King B3en jie to
their side. Of course his followers
nd servants thouight just as Benjie
did. Then the allie4~ tribes hied them
selves to the King's council chamber
d there things were fixed, and some
people-were, no doubt, fixed, and a
decree, signed by the King and sealed
with his great seal, was sent out to all
he provinces of the realm, saying,
bat.on a certain day of a certain
nonth, King -Benjie and his chief
ounsellor and loyal servant Sancho
Yjay, with other trusty and valiant
liegemen, would proceed to the waters
f the Cocsaw, and there parcel out
the coveted territory amongst the
maller tribes who had waited so long
md so patiently for the goodly treas
ures beneath the placid waters.
When the time came for the King
nd his loyal follownrs to carry out
the proclamation, there was much
talk as to the manner of proceeding
in this dillicult'and dangerous busi
ness. It was a strange country, and
they did not. know the approaches.
After talking rnearly all night, King
Benjie said to Sancho Yjay: "You
take certain valiant men and go speed
ilymd'secretly to the great waters
nerthelands of the Coosaws. There
yo will be joined by the leaders of
the allie& tribes. The learned men
in the law will also be there. While
they are near you may be certain
there is no danger to your bodies.
With a faithful servant or two I will
go another way and surprise the
Coosaws in the rear.. Go, and tarry
not." With this the council broke up,
ad the gallant Yjay hied him forth
on his perilous journey.
On their arrival at theJland of the
Coosaws they found the chiefs and
wise counsellors of the allied tribes
with their spears sharpened and their
war paint oni. A council was held.
The situation was discussed. Watch
men were sent out to look for the
camp fires of King Benjie over in the
rear of the Coosaws, but no catmnp
fires appeared. For some reason he
tarried. The chief counsellor, Senor
Al Drichi, whose name indicated his
fierce, Moorish blood said: "Why wait
fr your king? He is either lost in
the wilds, or he tarries until the dan
ger is over. Up and at them. Don
Lopez, chief of the Coosaws, will re
tire if you will only.- move forward.
He depends for success on stratagem
and not open warfare."
Sancho Yjay was chosen leader, be
canse he had on a former occasion
distinguished himself in the fight
with the Boodlers, Boasters and Brag
garts and Ringmen, and had driven
them to the -fortresses and strongholds
on the shores of the mighty sea that
borders their.Iand. The allied chiefs
had a strong vessel, and this was used
in the expedition. The rowers took
their places and the helmsman steered
the prow of the sturdy vessel straight
to the waters of the Coosaw.
Sancho Yjay, on-the confines of that
territory, made a speech. He is noted'
for his wonderful speeches, repletet
with wisdom and wise counsel. When
the spirits of the mighty brave who
have passed away are called forth
from their long sleep, it is belieyed
that the first sound that strikes their
ears will be the sweet and harmonious
voice of Yjay making a speech to
After appointing faithful watchmen
to look out for the apnroach of Senor
Lopez, the eloquent Yjay called his
braves together and said: "Princes,
I potentates, and worthy chiefs! Brave
men are never so happy as when dan
ger surrounds them and victory is to
be won by sturdy blows. The time
for action has come. The battlements
of the enemy frown on us from yon
der shore. Before the set of sun they
will be ours. Senor Lopez and his
followers will be led as captives back
t ti- banks of the Congaree. Let
no heart grow faint, no arm become
nerveless, no knees knock together."
This and much more did Sancho Yjay
say, for it all his speeches were writ
ten out, a thousand books would not
contain them. He then offered a res
olution which was voted on by all the
braves. This is the manner and mean
ing of it:
"Resolved, that the land of the
Coosaws is our land; that the Coosaws
have no rights that we are bound to
regard, or to respect; that they have
grown rich and proud and refuse to
give us any boodle; that they must be
abased and brought low; that the land
must be given to the tibes that will
fill our strong boxes with tribute
After this was agreed to they mov
ed forward and took possession of the
waters of the Coosaw from one end
to the other. They dived far down
to the abodes of the mudfish and
brought up of the land or dirt that
Jay at the bottom of the river and
each said aloud: "We own this land."
That was according to the custom of
the people at that time, and the wise
Senor Al Drichi advised after that
manner. Senor Lopez kept far away
and did not approach.
After getting possession of the land
a great feast was prepared and much
of the fruits of that goodly land were
devoured. By this time King Benjie
had arrived and explained his absence.
While Yjay was taking possession of
the waters King Benjie with his faith
ful servant was making a feint in the
rear, causing Senor Lopez to believe
that the real attack would come from
that side. Thus it came about that a
great victory was obtained and the
Coosaws utterly discomfited and their
fair possessions parcelled out amongst
their old enemies, the smaller tribes.
There was much rejoicing around the
camp fires, and wine and the juice of
corn flowed as freely as the waters of
the Coosaw at high tide. Their joy
knew no bounds. Yjay and AlDrichi
felt so good that they "cut the pigeon
wing," as they called a peculiar dance
in their language. King Benjie pat.
ted himself on the back and whisper
ed in his own ear, "Old fellow, you
are very good to yourself, you bet.
The rain will be kept off for many a
day. That howling old wolf will not
scratch at your door any more." This
was the strange language of that peo
ple, and no one knbws what the mean
ing thereof is. Thus the expedition
ended. King Benjie and his follow
ers returned covered all over with
glory. For all their labor arid the
danger undergone they received noth
ing but the praises of a grateful peo

went fishing every Sunday, ran away
from home before he was ten years
old, learned to drink, smoke, chew
tobacco, play cards, and slip in under

Some Reflections on the Keels Case.
The statement of the Attorney
General shows that he could not prop
erly have done otherwise than ap
prove the bond of County Treasurer
Keels, of Sumter. The fact that the
county commissioners had rejected
the bond and that the grand jury af
terwards presented it as insufficient
are strong points; but it should be
remembered that they were in a bet-'
ter position to know the financial re
sponsibility of the sureties on the
bond than the Attorney-General. He
had to be governed entirely by affida
vits and those presented to him were
very strong, and scarcely left him any
Our purpose in mentioning this
matter, however, is not to either com
mend or condemn the course of At
torney-General, but to call the Comp
troller-General's attention to some
figures presented in the affidavits sub
mitted to the Attorney-General as to
what the sureties on the bond are
worth, and also to the figures in the
certificates of the auditor, treasurer,
and clerk of court on the same
The comptroller has shown a very
earnest and proper desire to have bank
stock returned at its true value. Nov.'
let us have things done fairly. No
body connected in any way with this
newspaper owns any bank stock; but
we want to see justice done the banks
as well as individuals; and if the
Comptroller-General is looking im
partially for evidence in the matter
of assessments it seems to us he could
find some in the facts set forth in this
According to the county commis
sioners, the total alue of property re
turned by the surt Ies is $24,640, in
which there are homestead exemp
tions amounting to $13,500-leaving
only $11,140. And the clerk of court
finds in his office judgments against
several of the bondsmen amounting
to over $5,000. So there is left about
$6,000 worth of property to stand lia
ble for a $20,000 bond.
The most interesting part of the
whole transaction, though, is a com
parison of values as they appear in
assessments for taxation and as they
appear in the affidavits. For in
Joseph E. Wilson, one of the sureties,
returns his property for taxation at
$6,590-G. M. Barrett swears "I con
sider the said J. E Wilson fully worth
$15,000, exclusive of debt and proper
ty exempt by law from levy and sale."
M. J. Keels returns his property
for taxation at $600-J. W. Wilson
savs on oath that Mr. Keels is "worth
$2,500 over and above all liabilities."
K. Pennington returns his proper
ty for taxation at $280-T. B. Rhame
says on oath that Mr. Pennington is
worth over $5,000.
Jacob Keels returns his property
at $6,200-Mr. Carraway swears that
Mr. Keels "is worth $10,000, at least,
over and above all liabilities."
And so it goes. The following ta
ble is is a good object lesson:
Bondsmen. Pay taxes on Worth.
Jos. E. Wilson........S6,590 S15,000
M. L. Keels ...........60 ,0

men ma~y own property and pay tax

may own bank stock upon which the
banks pay taxes; but we venture to
say that this would cover a very small

Eggs for setting from thoroughbred birds of following varieties:
LIGHT BRAID-1 AS,
WHITE PLYMOUTH ROCKS.
$1.50 per setting of 15 eggs. $2.50 per setting of 30 eggs. I also
offer cggs from my prize pens of Black Minorcas, Brown Leghorns, and7
White Leghorns, at $3 per setting of 15, or $5 for 30 eggs. In addition
to other prizes awarded to the birds composfng these pens, the Cockrels were
awarded first prizes at the great International Poultry and Pet Show, reeefit- t
ly held at Charleston-the largest poultry exhibit ever known in the South;->
These birds can be relied upon as being the finest of their strains. They
were purchased from breeders of established reputation, at a cost of $145
for the three pens of 18 birds, and the prizes won by them over the larg
array of competitors is a guarantee that they are all that is claimed. I
also keep the
Mammoth Pekin Ducks,
noted as being great egg producers and for the rapid growth of the young,4
ones-weighing at ten weeks old ten pounds to the pair. Eggs per setting:
