THE LYNCHISG O^EAPHABT.
Wsj have more than once depict?
ed the horrors of lynch-law. We
have intimated that all of the
charges of assault made against
colored men relative to white women
could not be substantiated if the
facts were properly presented.
This position was never more
vividly sustained than in the case
which we quote from the telegraph?
ic dispatches ,*
Columbia, 8. C. May 5,?Willie
Leaphart (colored) waa shot and killed
ia Lexington Jail last night. Thia ii
the extent of the information thus lax
obtained by Gov. Richardson. Leap
heart was .convicted of assault upon
Rosa Cannon, a young white girl, at
her home while the rest of the family
were away, and sentenced to be hanged
April 18ch Learning of an attempt to
lynch him, and notwithstanding his
death sentence Leapheart was brought
to Columbia for sate keeping upon the
advice of the Judge who tried him.
The people ol Lexington became
greatly exasperated, and public meet?
ings were held denouncing the .Gover?
nor for removal and declaring lt a re?
flection upon tbe dignity of tbe county
and Its ability to shield its prisoners.
A strong delegation walled on the
Governor and Judge, aud after person?
ally pledging themselves tor bia safety
while In the Lexington jail they were
allowed to take |him .back. Tbe Gov?
ernor has telegraphed for full particu?
lars. Tbe prisoner bad been respited
to allow time for a motion for a new
trial on grounds of after discovered
evidence deemed sufficient by Judge
Wallace.
Now let skeptics on the subject
ponder these lines. So the people
of Lexine on beete me exasperated
on aocoua e *' reflection upou
the dignity-i the county and its
ability to shield its prisoners.?
Be it remembered that this is
tbe same state that boasted of its
civilization and its ability to put
down J udge Lynch. But the end
is not yet. The reason for tbe
respite are made manifest by the
following:
Chabl-cston, S. C. May 8,?The
Lexington lynching case assumed a
new and unexpected phase tc day.
Yesterday W. J. Miller was arrested In
Lexington county .and lodged In Jail,
charged witb perjury. It .waa on his
affidavit that the Governor reprieved
Willie Leapheart, who was lynched on
Monday night at Lexington. Miller
swore that Rosa Cannon had said that
Leapheart did not assault her, nor at?
tempt to asst ult her; tbat ber mother,
brother, and father did not believe she
had been assaulted, and that be believ?
ed that she bad been persuaded by car
tain persons to state .tbat the Negro
had committed an assault in order to
convict him. It was upon this affidavit
and other corroborating statements that
Leapheart was reprieved. Today
United States Marshal Cunningham
applied to Judge Siinonton, in the
United States Court, for a writ ol
habeas corpus to take Miller from the
custody of the State officials and bring
him before tbe United S ates Court,
Tbe petition ls based upon the fact thal
Miller ls a Deputy United States M?r
shad and was engaged In serving certain
processes issued by tbe United Statei
Commissioner Bandskett of Columbi!
when he was arrested by the Stat*
authorities ou the charge of perjury
Miller will be brought before Judgt
Simonton tomorrow. Marshal Cunnin|
ham says Miller ls fearful of bein'
I y nched.
So this justice loving Deput*
United States Marshal is arrestee
for telling the truth. But th
Atlanta, Qa. News published an
other version of the affair. I
reads:
Willie Leapheart, a colored youth,wa
lynched on Monday night laat at Les
Ington, 8. C.
It seems that a white girl by th
name of Rosa Cannon, bad been ruine
by a white scoundrel, by the name ?
Corley, and to shield his wickedness h
had Leapheart apprehended as a rapist
lie was apprehended, arrested.! an
sentenced to be hung. In the meat
time a letter was sent to the Governoi
endorsed by the presiding Judge, shoa
ing cause for delay in tho execution c
sentence. Tbe governor accordingl
respited Leapheart. The scoundre
Corley, then drummed up a crowd an
lynched Leapheart.
Now let Governor Richardson ea
baust every moans be has to secure tr
conviction of Corley, and let our gt
ernor be as active in aiding bim as t
was in 1876 in suppressing Negi
votes.
Just to think that an innooei
colored man should be made tl
victim of such a conspiracy.
The other side seems despera
and sends another report to tl
country. Here it is \
Columbia, 8. C., May 9 ,-The oo
plications in the Leapheart lynchl c
casa are becoming: more Involved. W.
J. Millar, tbe deputy marshal, was
Ukt*u to Charleston this evening In
obedience to tbe order la*oed ls tba
United Sta's*. Circuit Court yeaierdav.
Boynton O'Brien, a school teacher
and lawyer ot Lexington and a reliable
man, bas materially Injure*' Judge
Graham, Leepbeart's attorney, by mak
lng ttffidavlt to-day that in the drat
week in April Dol Leapheart, father of
Willie Leapheart, came to his bouse at
night and handed bim ten do lars and
a tetter Lom Graham. In bis letter
Graham ofiered to gt ve O'Brien sixty
dolUrs more if within a week he would
fut nish him with a number ot affidavits
going to prove the lack of chastity ot
Mis** Cannon, the young wo aa an ou
whose account Leapheart waa subse
queutly lynched.
O'Brien says tbat he sent the measen
ger out of bis yard, returning the letter
and money.
More developments are expected.
Mark you. no assertion that the
charges against this white woman
were untrue, simply a reflection
upon the counsel, lt seemed to be
generally conceded that Rosa
Gannon was of an unchaste char
acter. And yet this is the mate?
rial on account of which this Wil?
lie Leapheart waa lynched.
lt is passing strange that the
South Carolina authorities should
be so active in arresting a man
who was endeavoring to prevent a
judicial murder and inactive rela?
tive to those who caused a most
criminal one But this is one of
the most striking examples of
Southern inconsistency.
The murderers of Leapheart
have not been arrested. No at?
tempt has been made in this di?
rection, and yet these officials,
both country and state, stand
sworn to recognize the civil and
political equality of all men before
the law.
Colored men must arouse and
take the proper steps to defend
one of their number. Thank God,
in many sections of the South may
be found liberal minded white men,
Democrats, who will conscientious?
ly do their duty by their clients as
Judge Graham seems to have
done. All honor to Deputy Mar?
shal Mili ER. May he stand his
giound, prove his assertions and
demonstrate to the world what
southern "chivalry'* will do.
It but strengthens our position,
makes terribly apparent the hor?
rors of this inhuman butchery as
well as demonstrates that lyncJi
law must go !
EPISCOPAL VERSUS CATHOLIC.
If the actionfof its representa?
tives is to be taken as a criterion it
- ^ue ' *a ual <J^orcnv
although in ita inf..mt r*\ far as
Colored people are concerned, is
determined to drive the oppressed
element outside of the pale of the
Church. Everything seems to be
in order that will serve to humili?
ate and insult.
At Charleston, S. C., cn the 8th
inst., the Diocesan Convention
adopted an amendment estcluding
colored members from seats on the
floor. It contained a provision ex?
cepting the present members, but
when they resign or die, no colored
delegates will be admitted.
The vote stood 53 to 14, includ?
ing both laity and clergy. This
was so conclusive that there can
Ive no doubt but what the colored
brother is not wanted. In direct
opposition to this position is that of
the Gatholic Church.
Archbishop Ireland seems to
have the right conception of his ob
ligations towards God and his duty
towards man, when be is quoted as
here stated:
The archbishop stated that lt made
bim ashamed as a man. as a citizen, as a
Christian, to see the prejudice that te
ac ed against a colored citizen of Amer?
ica because of bis color. As to tbe sub
stance the colored man ls equal to
white; he has a like intellect, the same
blood courses in their veins, they are
both equally tbe children of a common
Fa'her who is in Heaven, a man show
ed narrowness of mind and acted un?
worthy of hi* humanity by refusing ans
privilege to his fallow man because h<
ls colored. Every prejudice entertain?
ed, e\ery breach ol Justice and charitj
against a fellow citizen because of ooloi
ls a stain flung upon the banner of om
liberty that fl >ats over us. ? ? '
No church ls a flt temple of God when
a man because ot his color ls excludec
or made to occupy a corner. Rellgiei
teaches that we cannot be pleasing t<
God unless we look upon ail in an k int
as children of our Father tn Heaven
And they who order and compel a mai
because he ls colored, to betake him t<
a corner marked off for his race praeti
cally contradict the principles of Jus
tice and of equal rights established b;
God of Mercy who lives ou the altai
This prejudice and exclusion in th
Church, the archbishop said, is a scan
dal ano a shame. Let Christians ac
out their religion, and then, there ls n
I' more race problem. Equality for th
colored is coming.
That is high ground. It enunc
ates great principles, and, as be
between the Episcopal and Cath
olic Churches, it seems eviden
that the colored man's selectioi
should be the latter. Any religio
that fails to recognize us as me
and brethren, is a sham and a de
lunion. It is not of God, and th
sooner it is buried out of sight tl
better. We are about to witnei
tbe dawning of a brighter day.

The Democratic Party as re pr*
seated in the Congress of
United States bas certainly don*
nothing to commend itself to th*
Colored people of this country.
Although in the minority it ha*
made no "propositions, favored r>
legislation in the interest of :
new black recruits. The poi
marked out by Mr. Clevel.<
has been ingloriously forgotten.

It has proposed to send out

of Internal Revenue should rise
and explain why he ousted Mr.
Lawson Brown, who was boat?

white man in his place. Tba Gol

know.
The rank and file haven't been
saying much, but they've bee i
doing a powerful lot of thinking.
Speak out Mr. Fisher.
The Democrats have stolen
thirty odd Congressional seats for
about twenty years?nearly 300 in
all. lt would be no mon than
right to seat all of the Republican
contestants (rom the Soot ii who
come from these black distrcts.

White men who are constantly
abusing Negroes and talking about
their ?'cussedness" should cast their
outward eyes inward.
The Negro in many cases is a
bad article, but white meu mawe
him so. Ile is a great imitator
and he bas been looking at his
white brother for a long time.
Take any race of people, train
them for 250 years that they are
inferior, have been nothing and
never will be any more than they
have been and they'll begin to
believe it.
For every twenty-five cents
stolen by a "two cent Negro" the
white man has stolen a hundred
thousand dollars. The former is
rated as a thief, the latter as a
gentleman, but God will bring all
things right in his own time. He
seeth not as man seeth nor judgeth
as man judgeth.
Reports come in from the coun
try that white men have stolen
three more banks and the Negrc
three more chickens. Blessed if

have a little and vice versa.

the Hon. Thomas Brackett Reed of
