Garrett, the slayer of John H. Camp
bell and his son, Aaron Campbell, was
captured this morning by a posse head
ed by Sheriff Muldrow, of Lee county.
Garrett offered no resistance until the
posse was upon him, when he made one
e frantic effort to secure his gun, which
proved fruitless, as he was already in
r the hands of his captors.
All night the posse surrounded the
SMechanicsville Mill Swamp. where the
~dogs bad brought their quarry to bay
about 9 o'clock Sunday night. All night
long the pursuers, numbering about
eighty megathered frmvarious
parts of Lee and Sumter counties, wait
ed for sunrise so that they could bring
rto an end their successful man hunt.
The dogs had taken the trail near the
a scene of the crime and followed it
a through sr-amps for a distance of eight
miles, finally locating the fug itive about
two and a half miles from the place
where the shooting had occurred. As
the dogs approached, the girl, who had
been with her father up to then, forced
to go against her will, broke away from
him and made her way out of the swamp
to the South Carolina Western railroad
track, where she was found and taken
in hand by members of the posse. She
reported "that her father 'was in the
s swamp fully armed with a double-bar
relled shotgun loaded with buckshot,
and would kill anyone who approached
r It was this advice that held back the
e members of the posse untit daylight be
fore they made their flz'al attack upon
Garrett. During the night there were
number of shots fired into the swamp
and calls were made for Garrett to
e come out and gite himself up, but save
for one shrill whistle the hunted man
gave no signz that he heard his pursu
ers. About 6 o'clock this morning, a
l dozen men were selected and these ap
