Since the fire on the morning of the
28th of May the town and surrounding
community have been very much ex
cited in numerous expeditions for the
arrest of Tom Hill. Friday evening
it was reported that Tom was on the
eastern side of Winnsboro and had
broken into one for two houses of
colored people, and stolen provisions.
One old colored man stated that he
had taken a skillet from his house. A
party of searchers set out immediately,
and pursued a cold trail far into the
night. The most tangible evidence
found that Tom had really been in the
neighborhood was the finding of the
skillet. This expedition ended in a

named Emanuel Small came into town
and narrated that he knew Tom Hill
well having gone to school with him,

freight about 10 o'clock Saturday
morning. When the party of pur
suers got a short distance out of town
they were informed that Tom had
been seen still further north of the
place where the Smsll man hid seen
him, and that he bad eaten his break
fast at this point. The dogs, there

crumbs of bread were found, but the
