One Brother Slays Another.
A sad tragedy occured in the Hotel Cal
houn in Charleston last Wednesday. The
victim was N. 1'. Pittmnan of Gourdfins and
his murCerer was Alviu J. Pittmnan his
youniigest brother. N. T. and Alvin J Pitt
ian bad been associated in business in
Charleston under the firm name of Pittnan
Brothers; they did a cotton factoiage and
naval s:ore business. Not long after the
withdrawal of N. T. Pittmiau from the firm,
the concern suspended payment and N. T.
Pittman was a severe loser, and since, lie
has lost considerably by endorsing lIaptr
for Aivin Pittman. This together with
Alvin's dissipation estranged the brothcrs
to such an extent that they refrained from
having anything to do with each other.
Alvin Pittman continued his dissipation,
and went down, down into the depths of
degradation until his associates were pao
ple of the lowest order. N. T. Pittnman we
are told went to Charlesten for the purpose
of trying to hit his erring brother from
this mire of degradation, and in accordance
with an arrangement, the' met in the Rto
tel Calhoun. The two brothers went into
the readitg room and talked in a manner
as not to create the shghtest suspicion that
bad blood existed; those in the offic2 close
hy, did not hear anything but the tone of
voices in ordinary conversation, and all at
once they were startled by the rapid fire of
pistoi shots coming from the reading room
wbere the Pittmwn brothers were the sole
occupants, and immediately after, Alvin
Pittman came ou: putting a pistol in his
pocket. Mr. Stoner the proprietor rushed
up to him and said "my God what have
you done?" Pittman replied by coolly ask
ing Stoner to give him a nickle tor car
fare. Mr. Stoner held on to the man until
he could get an officer who took him to the
guard house. N. T. Pittman was shot five
times, three balls taking effect and two
missing. He was sitting in an arm chair
and was struck in the back, death ensued
almost immediately. The writer reached
the city a few hours after the deplorable
tragedy, and knowing the deceased was
well known in this county, he took special
pains to get information. We were told
that N. T. Pittman on the train the night
before, confided to a travelliag man whom
he was intimately acquainted with, that the
object of his visit to the city was to a eet
an appointment he had made by telegram
with Alvin, and he was going to give him
another show if he could get him to prom
ise to mend his ways. When the deceased
Pittman was searched by the coroner a
large sum of money was on this person,
also an unsigned note made payable to
himself for $1000, no weapons, a little pearl
handle pen knife which he used for cutting
tobacco, of which he was an incessant user,
and this little knife was on the floor, with
the blade freshly stained with tobacco.
Our theory is, that N. T. Pittman in his
talk wIth his brother exacted certain prom
ises before he would give him the money,
or the amount he was willing to let Alvin
have did not suit. A demand was made for
a larger sum, and when refused, it angered
Alvin who resorted to murder. Our rea
son for theorizing thus is, that N. T. Pitt
man was a business man who would not
go about with a large sum of moncy on his
person unless he had immediate use for it,
and the fact that he had an unsigned note
payable to himself convinces us, he was
going to give Alvin $1,000O and take his
The tragedy is a most deplorable one, a
useful citizen meets an untimely end at
the hands of a brother, whom he had sent
to school atid spent a fortune on, and who
by riotous iiving threw away his manhood
and became a degraded wretch, no use to
society and a burden to himself. He is
now in jail to await his trial, and although
whee* first put in the guard house he set
up a plea of self defense, we would be
surpriseed if, at his trial he does not plead

Continuation of Court.
While at press last Wednesday the case
against Shawv Washington, assault and bat
tery of a high and aggravated nature was
being tried. The circumstances were that
Shaw Washington with malice aforethoeght
brought down upon the head of Joe Green
his wrath wi th the aid of a gun barrel on
the plantation of Mr. Jared Hodge near
Alcolu. The jury found him guilty and
Judge Klugh sentenced him to pay a fine

Then Jonas Benbow pleaded guilty of ob
taining property by false pretenses from
C. M. Davis and S. M. Neisen, a charge of
forgery against the defendant was noi
prossed. The prisoner was sentenced to
12 months on chain gang.
The trial of Carolina Johnson colored,
charged with commtitting a fiendish crime
upon the person of Gxracie Atkins, a very
pretty and bright 7 year old daughter of
Mr. J. A. Atkins who at the time the crime
was committed, the 4th of last July, was
living near Packsville. Tihe testimony
showed Johnson to be a trusted servant,
and permitted to sleep in a room with the
children at the time mentioned the alleg
ed crime was committed, the father was
informed of' what had transpired, but it
seems he took no action until abouit ten
days afterwards except to talk to Johnson
about the crime. Johnson did not go off,
and Mr. Atkins after about ten days had a
warrant issued. The testimony was clear
enough, hut notwithstanding the proof of
Johnson's guilt the jury. returned a verdict
of guilty with a recommendation of mercy
which saved the culprits lite and compelled
the Judge to pass a life sentence. T'he
verdict was a suirprise, ot we learn that
the father's strange condtict caused the re
comendation of mercy.
T he next ease svas against Isreal Phillips
colored, charged with outraging the person
of Ella Burrows a colored girl about 12
ears of age, near Pinewood last Augus.t.

Nevertheless the juty wa's not satisfied that

found him guilty of atte'mpting rape with
a recommendation of mercy and he was
sentenced to 10 years in thbe penitentiary.
The last case tried was tagainst John
Wesley Woods charged witth murder. The
testimony showed that John Woods, a little
