WAR'SWORKUNDONE
Slavery in Its Worst Form Shown
in South Carolina.
GRAND JURY MAKES A REPORT
Nesroea Threatened With Death. If
They Disclose the Secrets of
the Stookade.
*•* York Sun gpmolal Sotorn
Anderson, S. C, March B.—The grand
jury has made a presentment on the sub
ject of the enslavement of negroes and
baa recommended the prosecution of lead-
ing citizens.
The investigation and presentment has
revealed a horrible condition. Slavery
with all its terrors and more than its
former brutality is shown to exist. Men
have been kidnapped, locked up, shackled
and mercilessly whipped. Under tht» guise
of the convict lease system, this scandal
ous condition has been allowed to go on.
Since the Jury began its investigation
more than a score of ignorant negroes
have been liberated from the vile dens.
The convict garb has been removed aud
the shackles have been lifted from the feet
cf black wretches who had been bound I'qr
years. Death was threatened to all that
divulged the secrets of the stockades, and
private detectives followed the men to
shoot them if they gave information to
eend wealthy planters to the penitentiary.
A planter, who has been involved, has
made an open threat that a massacre will
follow any attempt by the courts to change
the system, and negroes in Anderson, who
might produce proof to convict the man
agers, have fled through fear of their for
mer masters.
Nevertheless the truth, has come out, and
the court is considering what next to do.
One negro, who was released from a
private stockade, had been shackled for
nineteen months. He was seized, kidnap
ped and sent to the stocks for no violation
of law, and he w%s guarded like a felon
and made to perform manual labor in the
cotton fields, while bullies with rifles and
bloodhounds guarded all avenues of es
cape.
The death of "Will Hull, a poor negro,
"who had been seized upon a trumped-up
charge and illegally committed to the
Btockade, led to the Investigation. Hull
protested against his incarceration. He
asked for a fair trial and his reward was
a blow from a club. In attempting to
escape he was shot.
EVANS IS EXONERATED
DISMISSAL DUE! to POLITICS
Secret Investigation by the Railroad
and Warehouse "Commission
at Duluth.
r
,'. Duluth, Minn., March B.—The secret
investigation by the state railroad and
Warehouse commission into the charges
against C. C. Evans was concluded yester
day and the decision, completely exoner
ates him.
On Dec 12, last, Chief Deputy Inspec
tor Prodgers of the grain department at
Duluth removed Mr. Evans. In making a
report to Chief Inspector Reishus at St.
Paul, Mr. Prodgers charged that on Oct.
17 last, Mr. Evans willfully and knowingly
graded four cars of wheat as No. 1 north
ern when he knew the grain wae not en
titled to better than No. 2 northern, and
that he did so at the solicitation of a local
mixing house. The second charge was that
Mr. Evans willfully graded four cars of
corn as No. 4, and another car as no grade,
•when he knew that the grain was good No.
3 and No. 3 yellow.
Mr. Prodgers, on the strength of these
charges, dismissed Mr. Evane two months
later. In political circles the charges and
dismissal were believed to have had their
origin in politics. Mr. Prodger is a pop
ulist and Mr. Evans an ardent republican.
After the election Mr. Evans became a
candidate for the office now held by Prod
gers, as chief deputy inspector, and asked
the state railroad and warehouse commis
■ ion to investigate the charges.
CAN'T TALK ENGLJSH
——i
Interpreters Needed in the Legisla
ture of Hawaii.
Honolulu, March 1, San Francisco, March
"•—With both houses in control of the in
dependent home rule party and containing
a majority of native Hawaiians, the legis
lature has already been the scene of some
remarkable proceedings and the end of
the session promises to see many very
radical measures adopted, among those to
•which the controlling party is committed
being a liqour dispensary law, a taxation
system that will be a combination of sin
gle tax and income tax doctrines, an elec
tion law based on proportionate repre
sentation and a law excluding from the
territory all persons who may arrive here
afflicted with consumption or leprosy.
The organic act says that all pro
ceedings of the legislature shall be
conducted in the English language.
Half of the members cannot epeak Eng
lish and the Hawaiian interpreters have
been employed in both houses. It is the
opinion of some lawyers that this will
Invalidate all proceedings.

NEW DEAL IN IOWA
National Guards May: Hold but Two
Camps This Year.
SUGGESTIONS BY GENERAL BYERS
First Examination of Guardsmen to
Determine Fitness for Com
mand Is Held.
Special to The Journal.
Dcs Moines, lowa, March 8. —The first
examination of guardsmen, elected as of
ficers by national guard organizations, for
the purpose of determining their fitness
for commissions, was held at the office
of the adjutant general to-day. The law
providing for such examinations became
effective Jan. 1, and the li&t of persons
examined included those elected since
Jan. 1. The examining board consisted
of Colonel James Rush Lincoln of Ames,
commander of the Fifty-first regiment;
Colonel J. A. Olmsted, inspector general
of the state; Major E. E. Lambert of the
Fiftieth regiment; Major John T. Hume,
assistant inspector general; Dr. Wilbur
Conkling, first lieutenant and assistant
surgeon of the Fifty-firet regiment.
The candidates examined were: First
Lieutenant John T. Poston, elected cap
tain of Company B of the Fifty-first regi
ment at Villisca; J. Y. Wickersham,
elected first lieutenant of Company B of
the Fifty-first; S. S. Boylan, elected sec
ond lieutenant of Company A of the
Fifty-first regiment at Dcs Moines; S. P.
Webb, elected captain of Company I of
the Fifty-first regiment at Bedford, and
THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.
A. Evans, elected second lieutenant of
the same company; Second Lieutenant E.
D. Middleton, elected first lieutenant of
Company B of the Fiftieth regiment at
Davenport, and H. G. Mcßurney, elected
second lieutenant of the same company;
Joe W. Cowles, elected second lieuten
ant of Company H of the Fiftieth regi
ment at Chariton; Eugene M. Errett and
Albert M. Kennedy, elected first and sec
ond lieutenants respectively of Company
L of the Fiftieth regiment at Newton.
The examinations were not of a severe
nature, and paid much attention to the
practical knowledge of the candidates of
military matters. The plan is to gradual
ly stiffen the requirements and thus in
time build up the guard.
Much interest is being taken in national
guard circles in the proposition of Ad
jutant General Byers to hold but two
camps in the state this year, one at
Council Bluffs and the other at Clinton.
The locations have not been fixed, but
General Byers has suggested these two
places, the plant being to have two regi
ments encamped together. Guardsmen are
looking forward with interest to the pro
posed departure from the routine of
camp life this summer, by the training in
practice marches and fortification work.
Not listed in the category of the enthu
siastic on the subject of fortifications,
however, are those members of the guard
who learned to ply the spade and pick
on the works south of Manila in 189!», they
being willing to decline with thanks.
The return of the Eleventh cavalry to
the United States will probably bring
back to lowa permanently Captain Joseph
Davidson, ex-adjutant of the Fifty-first
regiment, and at one time a major in the
national guard. He has been planning
to enter the regular army, but it is
doubtful if he can succeed on account of
age. In case he does not, he is looked
upon as a candidate for the office of ad
jutant general to succeed Adjutant Gen
eral Byera.
