LYHOeiNS OF WHITE MEN.
Several Former Instances Record
ed-The Moore Case the First.
Since the lynching of John Morrison
at Kershaw there has been not a little
discussion in regard to the number of
white men in this state who have
suffered from lynch iaw since the state
got back to a rational basis and the
people returned to a sane condition af?
ter Radical misrule, says The State.
The case of Moore in Spartanburg
County had been cited,already. The
case of Cuibreath of Edgefield is
another, although it is said to have
been more of an assassination or feud
than a lynching.
Another has been brought to recol?
lection, it was the kiliing of Manee
YTaldrop in Rekens ia 1887 or 1888. It
was art the hands of negroes that this
man paid with his life for the crime
which he had committed. But the
white people of the community are
said to have- raised no serious objection
to this method ef dealing with Wald?
ron, who was not strong minded and
his. guilt was said to be beyond ques?
tion. The little negro girl died? and
her body, af ter. being exhumed, was
examined by a physician who declared
the nature bf the crime. Waldrop
had been out rabbit hunting the day
of the crime and there were many
evidences to show that he had been
near the place and that be was the
A gentleman who is now a resident
cf Columbia was living at Central at
the time, and he advised the depnty
sheriffs not to start at night with
their prisoner. But they started for
the jail at 1 o'clock, and about mid?
night were taken in hand by a large
and enraged body of negroes, who
took the white man into the woods
and executed him according to the
accepted plans and specifications fur?
nished in such a striking manner by
the white people on numerous occas?
ions. The gentleman who told of- this
tragedy said that he was one of the
party who found the body the next
morning after a great deal of search
But the negro murderers did not get
off. as easily as* the white men do these
days, and four of them went to the
State prison. That was when Col.
Jas. L. Orr of Greenville was solici?
tor, and he was a powerful prosecut?
ing officer. The ex-resident of Pick
ens county does! not know whether any
of the prisoner are still in the peni?
tentiary, for their names had escaped
The News and Courier has had the
"The John Moore case was the first
lynching of a white man in South Car?
olina since the war between the
States, that is, the first regulation
lynching." said a gentleman more or
less familiar with up-country affairs,
"Your Columbia correspondent,"
he added,.*'did not name the crime
in his reference to it. The facts as I
remember them were that a respectable
white girl was found dead in a ditch
with her throat cut and evidences that
she had been viley abused. The crime ;
was traced to Moore, a rather worth?
less white man. This was not far
from the village of Reidville and I
think was in 1878. At any rate it was
during a political campaign, for the
late Col. Tom Woodward of Winns
boro was a candidate for Congress in
that district, and drove by the scene
of the lynching at about the time it
occurred. About 3,000 people are
said to have been present. Coi. Wood?
ward delivered a speech counseling
moderation and, I think, advising
that j the law should be allowed take
The mob, although it numbered
some of the leading citizens of the
county, and perhaps of Greenville,
Laurens and Union counties, was in
no humor to hear him and he received
anything but a sympathetic reception.
Moore was placed in a buggy, a rope
tied about his neck and the^ other end
flung over the limb of a tree. Then
the buggy was pulled from under him
and he was left dangling. This' was
probably the most representative
and the largest mob that ever lynched
a man in South Caroinla. lt embraced
practically the whole population of a
?arge and prosperous section of coun?
try. The murderer's victim and the
lynchers' victim were both white.
The negro question was not remotely
connected with it. Spartanbure bas
never been undef 'negro domination,'
not even iu Radical imes.
"Another lynching," continued the
gentleman, " which escaped the mem?
ory of your Columbia correspondent
and which created intense excitement
throughout the State was that of
Cuibreath in Edgefield, in about 1885. !
Cuibreath was a man of bad charac?
ter, but of good connections. He
had killed some members of bis fam?
ily and was in the Edgefield jail. He
was taken from the jail by a mob and
executed. I. think that some of the
members of this mob were indicted
and it included men of prominence.
Although it was not large- -that is,
compared with the great gathering
that banged John Moore. The Moore
lynching, by the way, was probably
the first affair of the kind, at least,
the first that attracted general atten?
tion, after the Cemocats regained
control of the Stare in 1876. If the
Moore incident gave an impetus to
mob law it is carious, indeed, that it
was, as already pointed out, exclu?
sively a 'white man's affair.' "

DIVIDED ON DIVORCE EVIL QUESTION
The Episcopalians Cannot Agree

Any Action to Check the
Boston, Oct. 12.-A marked division
of en timen t. regaring the proposal, to
prevent the re-marriage of the inno?
cent party to a divorce during,the life
of the former partner, developed at
todays' session of the house of de?
puties of the Episcopal general con?
vention. The house sitting as a com?
mittee of the whole discussed the issue
all day and many vehement addresses
were made by both sides.
Several prominent delegates express?
ed the opinion tonight that in view
of the great difference of opinion the
present convenitou would not act on
the matter bnt woald, like its prede?
cessor, refer the problem to the next
A commotion was caused by John C.
Buxton of Winston, N. C., who at?
tempted to link the divorce evil with
the liquor question.
Mr. Buxton is the deputy who on
the opening day of the convention
attempted to read a resolution censur?
ing Bishop Henry C. Potter of New
York for opening the Subway saloon.
In his rem?rks today he expressed the
opinion that it would he better for the
church to curb the liquor traffic be?
fore changing the canons on marriage..
Continuing, he was saying, "If in?
stead of a high official of the church
lending his inflneuce to the dedication
of saloons,'* when he was interrupted
by a point of order. Mr. Buxton was
admonished by the chairman. Still
he attempted to make some further
reference indirectly to the Subway
tavern but was promptly called to
order by the chairman. The time
limit of the morning session expired
before Mr. Buxton could continue.
James MConnell of New Orleans
i opposed the adoption of the new cannon
in a dramatic speech. ' * In God's name, ' '
hev declared, ".now can the church

Rev. T. J. Beard of Birmingham,
Ala., was opposed to the adoption of
the proposed canon because it compro?
mised the church as a teacher.
George Foster Peabody of Brooklyn
thought that all amendments to the
present canon should be voted down as
the church was evidently emphatically

"Last night and throughout today

We carried on the fight from advanced
positions and it became necessary to

held its advance position and only at
nigtfali under my orders retired to
the principal position. In the centre
the troops were forced to retire from
the advance to the main position
about 2 p. m.

own observations the fighting was
most desperate. We repulsed numer?

Kidney Pills are a great kidney remedy. 1
used them for ray back which has given me a
lot of trouble for three or four years. I have
had to lose time from work on account of
them being so* acute. I doctored for rheu?
matism, rubbed my back with liniments and
laid oti for two weeks during one attack, brit
nothing completely cured eve. At night ii
hurts worse than during tho day and 1 rould
not rest in any position. My kidney secre?
tions wore all out of fix, Cutt of sediment,
very dark colored and greatly disturbed my
rest. Finally I saw Dean's Kidney Pills ad?
vertised and got a box. They did me more
