Greenwood, 8. C., Nov. 10.-No
more trouble is looked for in Green
wood County tonight, though it is
barely possible that a few more no
groes may be killed in the. next few
ays. The mobs have for the most
par dispersed, and it is generally
felt that the disturbance iv at an end.

arrest at Columbia. "Red" Tolbert
is reported as going to Greenville
Some approbension is felt for the
safety of Thos. Payne Toll,ort, who

Elias Tolbtrt is still at Stockman's,
near Rehobetli. He is the most in
offonsive one of the family, and it is
not thought that he will be molested
especially as young Miller, the wound
ed man there, in such a critical con
ditioni that the excitement of an at
*tack on Tolbert might kill him. Mil
ler is now sulffering from pnoumonia
and his father, who is with him, says
his right lung is badly affected.
Stockman was accused today of sell
ing ammun4ition to negroes anid loan
ing themi a wagon and there was a
cry for vengeance against him, but
the accusation was denounced as a
fake by several members of the mob.
' When I saw him and his wife at 3
o'cloek at, their place they wore ap
prehensive and were asking for pro
t- tion and the wife and children
were g~.ing with fear.
ANoT jX MAN BUTcHERID.
Essex Harri.,n, another negro,
was killed today. He was shot at
noon by a party of .fteen who said
they picked himi up tw~ miles east of
the church. Hoe was kilkd under the
oak at Rehobeth among "the four
corpses left there from the da^yi before.
August Kohn, of the News and, Con
rier, and myself, going to Pho'cnix,
happened upon the party just kg
they arrived. They said the negro
had conf..ssed being a member of the
crowd of 200 that fired on Watson's
store when Etheredge was killed,
saying that he had been summoned
to go by Tolbert. The party was
not disposed to talk much. Halting
with the negro fifteen paces from the
tree, they ordered him up to take a
stand among the corpses. WVhen he
was ini three paces of the first corpse,
walking with his back to them, they
cursed him and sent a volley of shot
into him from shotguns arnd Winches.
ters. -He fell forwanrd over the other
corpses. After firing a fuv more
times into his body the party ro.

with the troubles, and tonorrow',s
sun will rise on a more normal con
dition of things in that much dis
turbed community. What has been
done lacks the sanction of thoso best
acquainted with the situatioT). The
greatest injury to innocent ne
groes came, no doubt, from fright
and hunger, but the danger line has
been readied. There was room for
grave apprehensions that the armed
force Ihat had gone to Phoenix to de
fend the weak, protect the inmocent
and punish the guilty would de
generate into a ruthless mob and
commit murder indiscriminately.
This is why the cool-headed citizens
of this place advised the release of
the Tolberts in Columbia. While that
dispatch was signed by only one
leading citizen it was endorsed by
overy one of the many to whom it
was submitted, and I have yet to
boar the first dissent. It was the
only wise course to pursue in the in
torest of law and order. This much
is said by men who Ytro no more
apologists for the conduct of the Tol
berts, past and present, than those
who were so clamorous for their
heads. No, Groonwood made no
deal with the Tolberts. We did not
spirit them away, or even assist in
their escape, but once awvay we are
willing for them to remain away rath
er than jeopardise the lives of inno
cent men and prolong a riotous con
dition by their return at this time.

Columbia, S. C., Novewber 11.
Columbia had two shows today, both
of which wore interesting to citizens.
One was the unusual sight of seeing
a whole regiment go through the
process of being paid and mustered

This was done in order to ascertain
that all sola iers on the pay roll were
present. There were no absentees,
Majors Carr and May were the
paymasters, and they arrived prompt

with them two heavy iron boxes, con
taining about $95,000 in crisp, new
greenbacks. Almost a whole com-.
pany was detailed to guard the
precious boxes. It took but a com
