WHOSE LITTLE INNOCENT
The Po ice Run Upon a Very Suspicious
Yesterday afternoon Officer Thack
ham was at the Union depot when he
no!iced a mulatto woman of middle
age rush up to the ticket office and in
quire the price of a ticket to a little
Hamlet in Sumter County. The
woman is known here as "Vincy."
In her arms she had a week old white
baby. The officer looked about to see
for whonm she was acting as nurse.
Seeing no one and noticing that the
woman tried to avoid attrac ing atten
tion he went up to her. She declined
to give any information as to the e2ild
or hcr movements and the officer ar
rested her. Later she said that she
did not know whose child it was, that
a colored woman named Jane Cross
had given it to her, and was paying
her $5 a week to keep it. The police
believe that the woman has been paid
to take the child to the country and
make away with it. The infant was
taken in charge by the city authorities
and the police are endeavoring to find
Jane Cross and solve the mystery.
The Cross woman is now in Winns
boro. The case is going to be pushed
to the end and the women will be
locked up till they divulge the plot.
The case has a very ugly aspect.
If the Cross woman is in Winnsboro
the police would do well to keep an
eye on her as she may be wanted be
fore very long.
BLCKHEA), S. C., September 2.
I left home on the 17th inst. at 3.20
p. m. for Winnsboro, not liking to
ross Bell's Bridge on Little River so
soon the next morning. I found the
bridge in an apparently bad condition,
rendered so by the recent unprece
dented wind and rain of the 27th and
28th ult. I think -somebody is, to
blame for not making some visible
motion to have the bridge repaired or
rebuilt. Nothing is done there ex
ept an advertisement by three County
Commissioners, the Messrs. WYeir,
Leitner and Tennant, showing the
bridge was nsafe. I have heard com
plaint that the the ford at that place
should have been made fordable by
the County Commissioners.
I was kindly cared for by the frienids
with whom I stayed. On the even
in of ihe~-20th I got excused from
ffer service as a grand jurvman by
is bonor Judge Gary and I bid adieu
to the friends and reached home niext
day about 1 p. m.
our correspondent . IH. D., speak
ng of Mr. J. R. Jefferies' speech at
[Longtown, says, "Hie handled the
President and Congress pretty severely
for their so-called repudiating of the
Democratic platform." We don't
claim for our President that he is any
thing more or less than a man, but see,
what Senator John Sherman say s
about Grover Cleveland: "No one
can view the conduct of (:rever Cleve
aud without being conymeced of the
greatness and goodness of the mnan
His integrity, his fearlessness his gifts
of mind must be plain to any~ one not
ttterly blinded by partisanshIp. L leve
land is. perhaps the broadest-minded
man that ever sat in the Presidential
chair. Beyond any of his predeces
srs he has tho courage and facu~ty, of
pushing all cabal and intrigue aside
and of addressing himself directly to
the people. Friends, personal, fol
lowing party, are nothing to him as
ompared to the welfare of the people.
With my natural distrust of all Demo
crats, I inight be tempted to look upon
this phase of Cleveland's conduct
merely as a bit of the ablest politics,
but in honesty I must admit that I
have watched this man in all the crises
of the national life in which he has
had a part and I cannot shake off the
conviction of his superb abilities-and
his magnificent patriotism."
Perhaps no man in public life in the
CUnited States has had a better oppor
tunity to measure public men than
Senator Sherman. Certainly none
has been less inclined to give credit to
political opponents. The tribute thuns
paid is wrunig from an unwilling wit
ness by the characteristics which Mr.
Cleveland's whole career shows him to
possess. Stronger words in praise of
the President could scarcely be speken
and they are true as they are strong. -
