A LYNCliING TH REATENED. I
Considerable exctement prevailed v
the streets on Tuesdaj over the re- ia
port that.Ed. Ballard, a mulatto boy
about 18 or 19 years of age had at
tempted to assault a Miss Shnster, who s
was stopping at the Winnsboro hotel 11
with her brother-in-law and sister, d
Mir. and Mrs. Ely. Several people t
beard the young lady screarm about
5 o'clock ini the morning, and Chief of
Police Gilbert identified Ballard as
the boy that he saw running from the o
ate. Mr. Gilbert shot at the run- ii
ning boy, but did not succeed in t
:~tchig him tben. Thelboy who came
ut os the hotel is said to have run in
a northerly direction. Ballard was
found a short time afterwards at the
passenger depot, where he claimed
that he slept all night. The young
lady identified him as her assailant,
nd he was lodged i" jail. Sheriff
Ellison fearing a lynching decided to
take the boy to Columbia for safe
keeping, and accordingly slipped him
out of the back yard of the jail and!
put him-in charge of Deputy Sheriff
S. B. Crawford, who carried the pris
oner to Rocktan. A party went in
search at the negro, and found Mr.
Crawford with him in the road near*
Rockton. They took the negro from
Mr. Crawford, and awaited the ar
rival of-Mr. Ely. About tbi4 time a
geatleman from lo'ck Hill appeared
accidently on the groamt, and ap- j
proachinig Mr. Ely asked him if he B
had not been ordered to leave Rock ~
Hill, and he admitted thpt such was e
the fac'. While the party were not a
disposed to pass judgment upon the ~
character of the lady, yet it was i
finally decided in vie w of the tact thatE
those mostly concerned were perfect
strangers in Winnsb~ro further in
.-iatioin should be made before the
aegro's life should be taken. Another
Fsct that deterred the crowd was that
the brother-in-law ref used to pull the
rope, though he seemed perfectly wil
ling that others should take this re
ponsibility. The prisoner was
brought back to Winnsboro, and re
elivered to the sheriff and be is now
in jail. The would-be-lynchers acted
with coolnesp. They simply concluded
that the caseideserved further investi
gation, and it is likely that the cuse
will be settled in the regular course
prescribed by law.
