Kditars LaureiUvitlt Herald:
As Mr. J. S. bTalock has published a
card in the Advertiser over his own sig
nature, in regard to the negro-whipping
near Hopewell, not long since, it is now
necessary that the public be made ac
quainted with all the facts in the case, as
well as a short history of the organiza
tion of what is known outside of this com
munity as "The Regulators," and why
such an organization was made neces
sary. In May, 1SS9, the citizens of Hope
well and surrounding country called a
public meeting of the citizens of this
community for the purpose of disapprov
ing or condemning the miscegenation
which some of our citizens were known
to be guilty of, and which immoral prac
tice existed to the shame and detriment
of our neighborhood. The matter was
freely and frankly discussed, and every
man present pledged himself to do all in
his power to put down such revolting
Immorality as then existed. The object
of the meeting having been made known
some of the parties who were known to
be guilty, at once began to make threats
against the lives and property of some of
those who participated in the meeting,
and so general ami ominous did these
threats become that the citizens gener
ally, in the neighborhood, lost no time in
banding themselves for their mutual pro
tection in a society known as "The Pro
tective League." Mr. N. P. Whltmlre
was the President, and Mr. D. R. Craw
ford the Secretary of this organization.
Immediately following these threats
against our lives and property the valu
able barn of Mr. W. II. Workman, who
was accused of being one of the leading
spirits in the former meeting, was burn
ed to the ground, totally destroying a
quantity of corn, fodder, (arming tools,
harness, etc. In September following,
the dwelling of Mr. X. P. Whitmire, to
gether with all of its contents, was also
laid in ashes. On Januar}' following,the
store houses of Messrs. 1). R. Crawford,
John S. llairston and J. II. Crisp were
burned. On May the 8th, eight bales of
cotton belonging to Mr. llairston were
also burned ; and about the middle of last
August eight more bales were fired.
This last lire, and the circumstances
attending it, was the cause of the whip
ping of the negro Wyatt James. James,
who was under contract with Mr. llairs
ton, had left his premises a few days be
fore without any known cause, and wns
working for another party in the neigh
borhood. On the night of the tiring of
the cotton, however, Mrs. llairston, on
discovering the burning cotton, called for
the hands on the place, anil perceiving
a man walking through the yard, (al
though it was late in the night) she called
to him, and asked if it was not Wyatt.
He answered that it was, but did not
stop, nor did he respond to the call for
assistance in lighting the lire. Another
negro man was sent to a negro woman's
cabin on the place (Mrs. llairston sus
pecting that the negro who bad answered
her w as perhapsSOtneOther negro) where
James was known to be in the habit of
sleeping, but on calling for him the wo
man saiil that he was not in the house, as
he hail left early in the night. Suspicion
naturally attached to James as the incen
diary, and the other negroes on the place
who responded to Mrs. llairston's calls
for help were so impressed with the sus
picious actions of James that they told
Mr. llairston they believed he had done
the burning. Early next morning James
came to the house and saiil to Mr. llairs
ton that he had heard it saiil that he had
been accused of the burning, which he
denied. On Mr. llairston's asking him
as to his whereabouts on the night be
fore, he replied that he was in the ne
gro woman's house and didn't know any
thing about the lire. lie denied doing
the burning, but added: "The man what
burnt dat cotton is got more money than
yoi is, Mr. llairston, or me either."
These were the circumstances which
led to the whipping of the negro Wyatt
James, under the belief that if be himself
did not do the burning he at least knew
who was the real incendiary or instiga
tor. The threats that were fust made
against our lives and property have al
ready been put into execution to the ex
tent of burning five buildings and ten or
twelve bales of cotton.
Our Protective League is composed of
the best citizens in our community, and
forty-five or fifty persons. And while we
have as high regard for the maintenance
of law and order as any other vicinity,
the teiliousness and "glorious uncertainty
of the law" make it imperative, for the
sanctity of our homes and the preserva
tion of our lives and property, that wc
band ourselves together for our mutual
protection. These are the particulars of
the whipping of Wyatt James, and with
this we commit our action to the consid
erate and thoughtful judgment of our fel
