A BAD STATE OF AFFAIRSI
BUTLER BANKS SHOOTS JAS. C. BANKS,
AT SMOKEY TOWN, IN THE YAED
OF A NEIGHBOR, IN DAYLIGHT.
Butler's Dwelling and Corn Crib Burned
at Night-His Wife and Children Left
to Themselves Without Shelter-The
Strong. Arm of the Law Invoked.
Not long since, we gave an account
through these columns, of the shooting
of Butler Banks, on his way home
from town. We then predicted that as
soon as Butler could "perambulate" we
would again hear from Smokey Town.
Our prediction has been most wofully
verified. James C. Banks, a prominent
citizen of Smokey Town, on last Sat
urday morning about 8 o'clock, at
O'Neall Academy, was shot by Butler
Banks, of the same section. J. C. Banks
is dangerously, though not necessarily,
fatally wounded. The news reached
town on Saturday evening and was
much commented upon, and much re
gret expressed on the unhappy state of
affairs in this unfortunate section of
our grand old county. The rumors
were somewhat vague, and so on Sun
day morning we were determined to
ascertain the facts in the case, and in
company with Judge Hair started for
the scene of action.
The facts as we gathered them from
Mr. J. C. Banks and two eye witnesses
are mainly based upon oath: Jas.
C. Banks is an agent for pictures and
literature. He had started on a can
vassing tour in the morning quite
early. His first place to stop was at a
neighbor's house in sight of Butler's
house. It is supposed, and very rea
sonably too, that here Butler first saw
James C. Banks, and guessing or rather
knowing his business, hurriedly gath
ered his gun, a double barrel shot gun,
and preceded James Banks to the
public road at O'Neall Academy, know
ing that James would be compelled to
come into the "big road" at or near
that point. He calculated correctly.
Butler took his oldest son, a lad of 13
years old with him, telling his wife
that he was going to sell his ox, and
that if he came across "Jin'j Banks, he
was going to kill him. There had been
exceedingly bad blood between the men
for some time. They are not related.
Butler, arrived at O'Neall, had a short
conversation with Miss Dorothy Hole
man, who lives there, and then in full
open view seated himself by the side of
a large pine tree on the road side. He
did not have to remain long before
James Banks arrived, and entered the
house of Miss Holeman without per
ceiving Butler who was just about 40
yards distant, at the tree mentioned.
Butler remained there quietly until
James Banks, came out of the house,
and down the steps, when Butler
quietly arose, took deliberate aim and
fired at James Banks. The gun was
loaded with buck-shot, four of which
took effect in the body of James, one in
the right hand, a painful wound, one
in each arm near the shoulder, both
flesh wounds, and one penetrated the
forehead, just above the left eye, and
ranged downward. This is the serious
wound. James Banks did not fall,
but called to Butler not to shoot him
any more as he was hurt. Butler did
not heed him, but raised his gun again,
when James ran around the corner of
the house, and the corner of the house
received the contents of this barrel.
James now knew the gun was empty
and ventured from his place of refuge,
when Butler drew his pistol, and again
James got behind the corner in time to
save further harm, and again the house
received the ball. At length James
ventured to look around the corner,
when, bang, went Butler's pistol again,
but without effect. By this time James
was bleeding profusely, and left by the
rear of Miss Holeman's house, and
Butler, either satisfied, or without
ammunition, left in an opposite direc
tion. Judge Hair issued a warrant for
Butler's arrest on Saturday night. Yies
terday, Sunday in our presence he took
James Banks' ante-mortem statement.
He was cheerful and in good spirits,
and wa doi ng as well as a man could
do under similar circumstances. The
physicians succeeded -i getting only
one of the shot out. Th ' one that en
tered the forehead had not been locat
ed. Butler has made his escape.
But the sad and lamentable part of
this tragic affair remains to be tolk.
It has a most deplorable and heart
rending sequel. On the night of the
same day (Saturday) a party of men
unknown to the writer, repaired to the
residence of Butler Banks, where there
were only Mrs. Banks and her six little
children, without any human protec
tion whatever, and deliberately and
devilishly set fire to the dwelling in
which were this poor heart torn moth
er and her six little children, the oldest
a lad of about 13 years old. The crack
ling of the flames awoke their s7ad
mother to find her house on fire. With
almost superhuman efforts, and by the
aid of her little ones, she succeeded in
extinguishing the flames. These heart
less, soulless men, if Ii be allowed to
term them men, on pain of death, and
with oaths, ordered that poor woman
baek into her house, and then saturated
bags and rags with kerosene oil, stuck
them into the crevices (it wvas a log
house) and again set fire to the d wel
ling, and then kept her in the house
util the fire was well under way. She
was then permitted to get out what she
could, which was ir deed almost noth
ing, either in quality or quantity.
These lawless incendiaries, then set fire
to the corn-crib and feed-house, the
only other buildings on the premises.
The work of destruction was soon com
plete, and this pool grief-stricken
mother and her six little ones, were
homeless, shelterless, clotheless and al
most friendless, save the star-decked
heavens above, and the cold damp
ground below. The corn, about sixty
bushels, a lot of peas, rough food, &c.,
all the labor of this poor woman's own
hands and those of her little ones were
given to the flames to gratify and ap
pease a demoniacal appetite of lawless,
night marauders. Judge Hair, Mr.
William Long, Sr., and Jr., and my
self visited the scene of the horror.
This was about three o'clock p. m.
Sunday. We were the first and only
ones who had gone there. A certain
fear seems to pervade that whole sec
:1tion. I hope nev'er to witness another
suh a scne. My hart was made to
bleed. There amid the smoking em
bers, were those six little children,
black, dirty, barefooted, bareheaded,
without food or shelter, oh! what e
pitiful sight. The mother had left
them early in the morning and gone tc
relatives in Edgefield County to gel
assistance. She could not do other
wise. The children seemed to be
cheerful. Poor things, they did not
realize their sad condition. Mrs. BankE
is an honest, poor woman. Her neigh
bors say naught wrong of her. There
is not a single mitigation circumstance
connected with this horrible deed.
Butler Banks may be just as mean as
the devil would have him be, but there
are some men in, or near that section
of country, who are just as mean as
Butler. The shooting of "Jim" Banks,
by Butler is a diabolical act, but it fadeE
into utter-insignificance, when placed
by the side of the hellish deed of burn
ing the home, the only home, and ef
fects of a poor helpless woman and her
children. There is no palliating cir
cumstance which can be offered as as
excuse for such proceedure. The case
has not a paralel in the history of oui
country. Even the memorable "Sher.
man's raid" of the dark days of 1865,
fails to furnish us with a paralel case.
His acts were in part at least justified
by the ends sought. This act demande
the most severe condemnation, and the
perpetrators thereof should be punished
to the full extent of the law; but who
is to begin the process. As I have al
ready said, there is a certain kind of
fear permeating, nearly that whole sec
tion of unfortunate people. Some of
the parties to this dark deed, were re
cognized by Mrs. Banks and her chil
dren, and the names of the whole can
be ascertained, but unless the Solicitor
or Grand Jury, or some other powerful
arm of the State Government act in the
premises we fear nothing will be done.
There are just as good and true men in
that section of country as ever breath
ed the breath of life, and there are quite
a number of them too, but the moment
they act they jeopardize both life and
property. See? The end of the Smokey
Town troubles is not yet by far. The
worst has not come yet unless the
strong arm of the law intervenes very
soon and brings some at least, of these
guilty parties to justice. We have been
there, we have carefully investigated,
and we do know whereof we speak.
There is a righteous indignation ex
pressed by the good people of the com
munity over Saturday night's foul work
but that is the end. They dare not act.
The very best men will arise to assist
when they feel sure, the strong, strong
arm of the law comes to their rescue.
Let us wait and see. YUBE.

Before the Trial Justice.
A preliminary examination has been
in progress before Justice G. M. Girar
deau since Monday, that has elicited
considerable interest. It is the case o1
State vs. Ed. Briggman, charged with
larceny. The facts are briefly: Mr.
Briggman, the father of Ed., was under
contract with Mr. D. R. Phifer to work
last year. Mr. Briggman died during
the fall. Mr. Phifer claims also that
he hired from Mr. Briggman a certain
mare for last year. He also claims
that he holds a mortgage on the mare.
Mrs. Briggman makes affidavit that
the mare is hers, and that her husband
never did own it. Mr. Phifer borrowed
the horse to drive to town, and put it
in his stable. On January 2, 1889, Ed
Briggman went to Phifer's stable and
took the mare out. Phifer claims that
Briggman stole the horse and brought
the case in question. Young Briggman
was arrested in Shelby, North Carolina,
with the mare, on a warrant other than
the one issued by Trial Justice Girar
deau. From there young Briggman
seems to have gotten to Laurens jail,
and from there to Newberry. He was
first arrested for malicious trespass but
the case was nol prossed by consent of
the prosecutor. These are the facts as
we could gather them.
It seems from the above that Brigg
man took the horse believing he had a
right to do it. The State was repre
sented in the preliminary by Goggans
& Hunt and Briggman by Johnstone

Worthy of the Office.
To the Editor of the Newberry Her
ald and News: Now that*County Com
missioner Walker has resigned, the old
"war horse" Os. Wells, who came next
in the race, should be put in harness.
This fact urges courteous consideration
in his case, and so likewise does the fur
ther fact of his fitness for the office.
We simply make the suggestion for the
consideration of all fair-minded men
that Mr. Wells is justly entitled to be
Mr. Walker's successor. TOTE FAIR.
Salter's Famous Art Galer'.
To the Editor of The Herald and
News :-From time to time there
have appeared in the columns of your
readable paper interesting and instruc
tive descriptions of Newberry's impor
tant enterprises and institutions-her
magnificent cotton mill and flourish
ing bank; her two handsomely-built
and well-kept hotels; her noble college
and excellent academies and schools;
her glorious churches and Sunday
schools, etc., etc. While all this is right
and proper, we must not overlook Sal
ter's beautiful Art Gallery-which has
become an important feature of the
city, in fact, one of its necessary insti
We visited the gallery several days
since and were so impressed with the
surroundings that we determined to
ask space in The Herald and News to
add this enterprise to the list already
mentioned in these columns. Mr. Sal
ter is a fine artist, and we venture the
assertion that his gallery is the best in
the State outside of the larger cities. It
is certainly the best that this place has
ever had, and Newberry is to be con
gratulated on having such a splendid
institution in her midst. It is well
worth a visit to the gallery. Mr. Salter
has a lovely collection of pictures, and
is well supplied with the latest im
proved chemical appliances, and ac
cessories of the art, as well as the very
latest scientific improvements and fa
cilities in his profession, to give the ut
most satisfaction to those who patron
ize him. G.

Letter from the Ex-sheriff of Chautauqua
County. Ntew York.
MAYVILLE, N. Y., Dec. 2, 1885.
I am glad to say, from a long personal
Iexperience with Allcock's Porous Plas
Iters, that I am able to endorse all the
Igood things that have ever been said
about them, and supplement these by
saying that I frankly believe their value
cannot be estimated. Their breadth of
Iusefulness is unlimited, and for prompt
and sure relief to almost every ache and
pain that flesh is heir to, no other re
tmedy, in my opinion,either external or
internal, equals them in certainty and
rapidity. I have used them at one time
for rheumatism, another for backache,
again for bronchitis, always with the
same result-a speedy cure.
