In the notice of the County Supervisor
calling for claims against the county to be
filed on the first Saturday in January, he
also extends and invitation to th county's
representatives to meet with his board.
We are glad the supervisor has done this,
and we hope there will be nothing to pre
vent any member of the delegation from
being prese;nt. No Representative can in
telligently represent his constituents who
does not seek the neccessary information,
that he may become conversant with the
county's needs. The people have placed a
trust into their h ,nds and an important
one; the f:ct tlat the position of Represen
tative is a conrtdence, makes it the more
honorable, and those who are thus honc-r
ed should appreciate it sufficiently to come
to the court house t atquaint themselves
of the condition of the county. We sin
cerely hope all will be on hand.

Quite an existing episode occured last
Monday by the running of one Cicero
Harvin, colored, away from a constable
who had a warrant for his arrest, on the
charge of violation of contract. The crowd
took in after the fleeing negro and he was
finally captured- While the chase was in
progress many in the crowd did not know
the cause of excitement or who was wanted
but they went on with the crowd, then
some fellow in a spirit of mischief gave it
out that they were clasing Bill Dixon,
which caused many to halt instantly and
remember they had business elsewhere.
Harvin when taken was very much fright
ened, the fellow did not seem to know why
he should have thus been pursued. But
Mr. Ed. Briggs of Silver who had him ar
rested told the fellow that he was charged
with fraud and violation of contract. It
was not long however before Harvin gave
bond and was released.

Our Sheriff informs us that about eigh
teen years ago a mysterious murder was
committed in the Silver section and up to
date no one has paid any penalty for the
crime. Charles Connors, a negro; immed
iately after the murder, left for p-arts un
known and at the Coroners inquest it was
learned that the murdered woman who
was the wife of Charles Connor's was lois
oned with concentrated lye. A warrant
was issued and the country ransacked for
tbe escaped murderer, without avail, the
sheriff communicated with other sherifi's
and through all of these long years Charles
Connors charged with the murder of his
wife eluded the clutches of the law. At
last Sheriff Bradham found a prosper
ous colcred farmer in Marlboro county
known there as Charlie Johnson; somethin g
r,-iehed the sheriff which caused him to
look after this man and he located him as
the missing Charles Connors wanted by
hi -i on to' charge of murder. Deputy
Sheriff Gamble left on Monday fo'r Ben
nettaville and brought Connors here and
placed him in the county jail to be tried at
the next term ot cour-t.

was the trial .Magiserae and whenr the hour
arrived, it was ascertained that some of the
material witnesses for the State was not
prsent, and Magistrate Richbourg granted
a continuence until next Mand-ay. This
case is being watched with a great de::i of
interest, because it is belheved thnt there
is an organized band of thieves who have
adopted the plan of robbing cotton fromi
the bales and by putting a little seed cot
ton with it, have it packed at some of the
cotton gins; there is also a strong suspicion
that the band is not altogether comnpoead
of negroes, and the axiety displayed by the
negroes from that section exhibited a degree
Iof restlessness among them.

scraps from its depot, and as a consequence
