THE CASH CASE.
It will be seen in this issue that
we have given space to the edito
rial of the Wadesboro, N. C., "In
telligencer," with regard to W. B.
Cash, who so dastardly committed
murder upon the body of Marshal
Richards of Cheraw. A foul,wan
ton murder, to be chronicled, not
only in our own State but that of
others. A murder offering perhaps
capital to the North for the abuse
of the South ; or a murder calcula
ted to give the South a bad name,
while so;many of Chesterfield's pri
vate citizens, ally themselves with
the Cashes, and sympathize with
them in their baseness and iniqui
ty. Too proud already of the op
portunity, are the Norhern people
of throwing shame in our faces,
and this sneaking offense, will
probably embolden them to renew
their efforts at derision.
There is a claimed panacea for
the crime of murder, but too un
frequently is the murderer's neck
spared the noose-hole of the gal
lows. The same mercy that the
jurors and the officers of the law
show to those guilty of murder,
should be shown by the murderer
himself before the committal of
such an act. le never stops to
show mercy to his victim, but is
the recipient of it himself when
brought in the courts of so called
justice. Cash should be caught
and tried, and if he with "malice
and fore-thought" murdered Mar
shal Richards of Cheraw, he should
be hung "as high as Haman.''
Is the reputation of bravery, the
act of dwelling in a "palatial man
sion,'' the hospitality characteris
tic of an old time family, or the
close alliance with a multitude of
good peCople to protect him from
the punishment which he might
dleserve. Let Justice take its
course for another time. Shear
Mr. Cash of all personal and fami
ly recommendations, and place him
on the plane of a murderer, and
dleal out justice to him, the same
as it should be dealt to any other
murderer who might sustain very
iriferior social relations. Gov.
Thompson has 'left no stone uin
turned' to secure the capture,
of Cash, and we may rely upon him
as doing all he can to bring the
guilty parties to justice.
Col. E. B. Cash, the father of
Bogan Cash the murderer,has been
arrested, and carried to Columbia,
where he is now in jail. Mr. R. C.
Watts, one of Cash's lawyers, pro.
poses to "sue out a writ of habeas
cor pus.'' Col. Cash has been guil
ty of serious ihreats, stating.that
the death of Richards saved him a
Winchester rifle ball, and it is fur
ther reported that there 'is a let
ter extant' in which he says "that
if Gov. Thompson offers a reward
for the arrest of Bogan he will of
fer a reward for the Goveruer's
head.'' But Col. Cash is now lock
ed up in the prison walls,as acces
sory to the crime of murder, and
who if proved guilty, will be hang
ed if the letter of the law is car
ried out.
THE SENTINEL'S SUGMI STION.
In last week's issue of "The
Sentinel," it was suggested that
the county be divided into three
divisions, each to be represented
on the Board of County Commiss,
ioners. This suggestion we think
an admirable one, and if adopted
by the voters of Pickens County,
will work well for its interest, and
greatly to the convenience of the
successful candidates. As it now
is, one or more of the Commission
ers is or are forced to travel over
several miles in order to at tend to
their business, and the interest of
all sections cannot be watched as
closely as they could be, if we had
three divisons with a Commission
er residing in each. The sugges
tion regrardingy this arrangeineiit,
meets our approbation, and so far
as the method of voting is con
cerned it may perhap' s he bet ter to
allow the voters in each division
to elect their own man. We ree
ommend the suggestion of the 'Sen
tinel' to our readers.
-It was accident, coupled with
nterp1rise, that brought Mr. Iallet
to this place. Sheriff Blassingame
me.t him on train while returning
from his late trip to Baltimore af
ter H-owardI Butler, under the Gov
ernor's requisition. Th'le Sheriff,
who lived out west for a number
of years before the war', and who
has since traveledi in Europe, b~e
lieves that there is no place like
Spartanburg, and takes pleasure
in saying so, when occasion calls.
Learning in the conversatior, that
Mr. Hallet was on his way to South
Carolina to select a site for his fac
tory, lhe pointed him to Spartan
burg. Tlo cut matters short, Mr.
II., after examining several towns
in the up-country, came to the cop
clusion that the Sheriff was right,
and has settled in our midst. Hie
has rented one of the houses of
