"^Magistrate Bowen held an inquest over
nthe body of tho dead negro. The ver
edlet of the jury was that he o rmo to his
death at tho hands of parties unknown.
The woman, who testified at tho in
quest, said that about 10 o'clock a
crowd of about GO white men tame to
the houso and, after ehoot'ng and kill
ing Elrod, glvo them a severe beating
and warned thorn to leavo the country.
'? The women satd they did not recog
nize any of their assailants, but thoy
did not live in that community.
This is all that is definitely known.
The gcnoral supposition is that the
women were objcotlonablo to tho peo
plo of the community and that a posse
of citizens went to tho bouso to chas
tlso and drive them away and that El
rod resisted and was killed. The alTair
is strongly condemned by tho people
in and around Piedmont and a thor
ough investigation will be made.
