to cull upon United States Judge Jos

As pent-rally known, a referee In
bankruptcy was maintained herc un
til lust summer, when the term of of
fice of the referee, C.. H. delger. Esq.,
expired. Following a practice he had
*stab)isbe-l of'reducing the number
of referees in bankruptcy, by not
'making reappointments where terms
of office expired. Judge Henry A. M.
Smith of the U. S. district court for
tho eastern and western districts of
South Carolina, did not maka an ap
pointment fo continue the olhce here.
On the contrary, he combined the
offices of referee in bankruptcy of
Anderson and Greenville counties and
made J. J. McSwuln, Esq., of Green

? ville late Tuesday night and crushed
hei Bkull with a blunt Instrument,

COM tory near thor'1 Thursday after

j murder of the old lady, was shot!

j clump of woods sonic- SOO yunis from
I Iiis home on the Scott place.
The negro ia oil yet dead, but the
wound in his head has paralyzed his
tongue, and, being bereft of the power
of speech, and unable to write, lie
cannot give the name of his assailant,
'who he evidently knows, since
i lie nods his head in assent to the
i question whether he can tell who
I shot him. The attending physician
I states that there ls no hope for the
! covery of the negro, and unless
some way is found hy which he can
nuke known the nome of his assassin,
be will go to his grave with the secret
on his lips.
Among the Suspects.
Ben Massey, who was currica to
Abbeville Jail last Wednesday togeth
er with Charlie Logan, self-confessed
slayed of Mrs. Scott, and Earl Bur
' ton, thc negro who lies at Iiis home at
Lowndesville speechless from the ef
fects of the bullet sent into lils brain
hy an unknown assailant, claim that
on the night Mrs. Scott was attacked
they were in Anderson and spent the
night here with a negro named Will
Davis, a brother-in-law of Burton.
While the funeral of Mrs. Scott was
l>oing held at the grave Thursday af
ternoon this Earl Burton was shot
tin ou g h the head with a pistol in a
patch of wooils some 500 yards from
his. home; The negro was felled by
the "shot, but later regained his feet
and walked to his house unaided. He
makes his home with hi? mother,
Reedy Burton. This old negress, it is
said, is the one to whose home little
Millie Lee Scott fled when she was
awakened Tuesday night by tho at
tack upon her grand-mother, and the
one who detained tho girl in tho house
an hour and half before she would
cons*/it to KO to the house of un uncle
of the child -and tell the news of the
attack ubon Mrs. Scott.
Pistol Hall in Head.
Earl Burton was shot with a pistol,
the ball entering the left side of his
head and stopping Just undCi the skin
of the rieht side of his head. Dr
Themas Ktrkni'yMck was summoned
from lowndesville to attend the
I wounded negro, and he has stated
? that there, ls no hope of recovery for
I the patient. The wound in the negro's
I brain has paralysed his power of
sne?ch. When asked if he V. ew who
shot him, the negro nodded his head
in assent. He cannot write, and so
there ls no way In which ho ean make
known to his questioners the name of
the person who shot him. Why these
ouestlonera have not tried the plan of
enMinr off a list of names to the negro
und nsklne him to make some' signal
if the rieht name Was called, lr- not
known. But If s".oh a plan were tfled
and an affirmative answer given by
the negro, it is doubtful If such evi
dence would be competent in a court i
Are Many Rumors.
Earl Ourton ls the negro concern
ing whom reports, were current In
Anderson Thursday night to the ef
fect that he had been shot and beat-'
en. and brought to the Anderson
County Hospital for treatment. Thc
negro was not beaten, and he was\not
brought to the hospital. A Mr. Speer
of Lowndesville was rushed to the
hospital here Thursday,night for an
opr.-ation and persons confused thia
fact ?-Ith the shooting of Earl Burton,
spreading tho report that the negro
had been brought to th& bosolta\_for ;
treatment. . ?'.I
Reports were also current in An
derson .Thursday night that a second
negro had been shot at Lowndesville. i
This report was also erroneous lnso~
tar as the statement that the shoot- j
lng occurred nt Lowndesville. The i
faots are that a negro was shot In j
the lea on tho plantation of a white <
nun living between Iva and Starr.
This eras the result of a personal
difficulty between the negro and thc <
white man who is said to have shot
him. and has no connection whatever i
with the Lowndesville affair.
Xn Whites Arrested.
Rervorta were rife on thc streets ?
yesterday that there had been other |

Magistrate J. G. Huckabce. ol
Lowndesville. told The Intelligencer
that lie arrested Will Johnson about
i o'clock yesterday morning, placed
him in an automobile and carried

TVstlHed at 7u?|nest.
At the Inquest over .Mrs. Scott's
laxly Will Johnson teal tried. He lives
an the Scott place. On 'he night of
;.he murder of Mrs. Scott, he stated,
he came by Cliarlio logan's house,
and. In the absence of lien Massie,
was invited to spend the night, which
he did. He testified that h-J Raw char
lie Logan making a -hort 'a lder. This
is the ladder which wm used by tue
per.son who crawled through the win
low of Mrs. Scott's house and mur
dered her. The luthier was found after
thc murder In Logan's house. John
son further testified that he did cot
know what time Charli.> Logan went
lo bed. and knew nothing of the m?r
ier of Mrs. Scott until he was awak
en bv the general alarm which was
raised after the discovery of the das

It is reported oa good a ithorlly that
whlle Charlie Logar wea enrouto to
the State penitentiary for safe keep
ing he confessed to the ueputy s?ieriff
of Greenwood county that he had mur
dered Mrs. Scott, and was assisted in
the act by Will Johnson.
It was on the strength of this al
leged statement, of Lo gait's and upon
thc strengf.h of other evidence un
covered by Wing ?.st rat o li nelcabee that
the official yesterday morning placed
Will Johnson under arrest and car
ried him to Abbeville ?alli.
telephone late yesterday afternoon
Magistrate Huckabee told The Intel
ligencer that no white people bsd
been arrested In connection with the
affair, and no other arrests had been
made with the exception of that of
- Wi Rumors Abroad.
As is usual in all cases of this kind,
various ugly rumors are afloat. In
fact, one can hear almost anything he
wants to bear about the murder.
Stories are going the rounds that
white people are mixed up. in the kil
ling of Mrs. Scott, and that -the negro,
or uegroes. who did her to death were
paid to do so by negroes. One report
went so far as to say that, one ol the
negroes had confessed that white peo
ple hsd paid him 160 to ' put ' Mrs.
Scott out of the way.
So far as evidence bearing out these
reports ts concerned, the reports are
as empty ss the Idle wfbd. There are
number of people In close touch with
the cate who believe that the death
of Mrs. Scott was the result \?f a con
spiracy, and there are some who be
lieve that all the facts In connection
with ht/ death have not yet been un
covered. Bet so tar as there being any
evidence in hand so fer to bear out
these rumors? there ia nothing to it.
The^/ies ef Sheeting.
. Of course, every one has his theory
yt the shooting of Earl Borton. Some
live 'sd venced the theory that B?r
en wsB shot by some larson who
was afraid that the negro might Ulk
ind tell something about tbe murder
it Mrs. Scott that would implicate
ilm. the person firing the shot. There
ire scores of other theories advanced
Mpcernlng .he mysterious affair, but
henries SAO not solving the pussle
ind a great many of them ?re eo
cdtculoas as to be almost disgusting.
