Visited by Mglit Riders.
Cadiz, Ivy., Aug. '27. Night riders
visited the store and hotel of
Johnson Hcndrick, at Rockcastle on
the Cumberland noar here, and after
firing a few shots in the air called
to Mr. Hcndrick to come out. He
came to the door and they asked
him somothing about shipping some
independent tobacco from a landing
a few miles below. He assured them
that he had not, aud that they had
been misinformed. He offered to
call his wife and prove it by her,
but they assured him that they were
willing to take his word.
Then they asked him to come aud
go with them up on the hill a short
distance, as they wanted to talk to
him further. He asked them to let
him dress, but they informed him
that it was not necessary, aud carried
him along as he was in his night
ciothos. He was gone about twenty
minutes and returned. He says
they did not touch him in any way,
and every indication bore out this
statement, aud that they only talked
to him about the tobacco that they
had hoard he had shipped.
The crowd then departed quietly
