FULL ACCOUNT OF
POCKET BOOK STEALING CASE
Chief J. T. Crows Gives Full Account
of Case Referred to in Council.
Editor The Advertiser:
I seldom ever appeal to the press
to air grievances or to explain my acts
and doings as Chief of Police of the
City of Laurens, but because of some
possible misunderstanding of the re
port made of the action of the City
Council at their meeting last 'Monday
nightt I desire to make the following
A few weeks ago 'Mr. James W.
Boyd came to me anid informed me
that a negro boy working in a press
ing club had taken his (.\ir. Boyd-sr
1clothcs to the club to be pressed, and
havingi missed his p)ocketbook a short
rxhile afterwards, -Mr. Boyd remem
bered that he had nelected to remove
it from his leints pocket and immnie
diately began an investigation, and Onl
questioniid the negro boy about it he
(lenied any knowlede of the pocket
book and theni it was that Mr. Boyd
appecaleAI to imc to see if I could not
-t on track of it. I arrested the no
ro boy and put him under a grilling
ordeal, intending to turn the boy
loose as soon as I was satisfied that
he was inocent. But in the meantime
ir. Kend rick came to me and asked
if I would allow himi to talk to the
negro boy which I readily did. .lr.
Kendrick assuring ie that the negro
would confess tb him before he would
to ime. the boy having previously
been in l. Kend rick's cn:loy) and
after talking with the negro for some
time. Mir. Kendrick hunted ip Nir.
Boyd and proliosed to him to pay hinm
back the money that had been taken
but Mr. Boyd refused to take the
in 1 ey from Mir. Ken(!rick unless it
was agreeable with me. ir. Ken
drick's proposition to Mr. Boyd ias
cou;led with the und rstanding that
th .'''' he was to pay for the negro
woil(l settle the case without any
trial. Mir. Bloyd woild not aare to
this until he had consulOted me, 0 !he
two er(' cao togetc'her to in ofi!ie (' and I
told Mr. Heyd that I had no objection
if lie was satisfied and didn't care to
prosecute the case. and Mr. Kendrick
then wrote out a check for the amount
and gave it to Mr. Boyd. I told the
negro boy. howeer. that if be was in
nocent and not guilty of takin;. the
money he could come to t:ial bit lie
said hec did not want. hearing.

According to reliable informatlon
reach. ., here today, the farmers in
the B .dgeport and Stevenson see
tions are 'keyed tip to a high pitch of
excitement' over developments over
the past few days. Jodie Beavers and
John lBrown, two farmers arrested
S 'atrday by state law enforcement of
flcers atnd sent to Jackson county by
Governor Kilby, are confined in the:
jail at Scottsuboro. Brown is suffet-Ing
from a wound 'alleged by officers to'
have been. sustain.d in the course. of
a raid on the home of Harry McGowan
Thursday night by a band of 15 or 20
night riders. Both 'Beavers and flrorAsn,
It is said, have been identied by Mc
Gowan as members of the gang of al
leged night ridera -meh attaclked h..
rome. Both men deny having partici
vated in the raid.
Information reachirng Chattanooga
today stated that night riders in
Jackson county, ,Ala., have dragged
men from their homes and whipped
them unmercifully and others have
been warned to Join the Tenants' un
ion or take the consequences. Meni
bers of the union, wh!lg denying any
part in the outrages, are charged
with either taking part or inspiring
these attacks. It is alleged that the
night riders are attempting to enforce
the principles of the Tenants' union,
the raids being on homes of tenants
who have refused to join.
