bis matter. It was reported to us over a e
reek ago that an attempt would be made to
preck tbe night train out of Atlanta. We a
iave been laying for them, as It were, and &
ast night we succeeded in bagging our game. C
ust after dark, last night, J. T. Byrd, John
>aks, tbe detective and myself went out to Y
he trestle, about four miles from town, It e
laving been reported to us that tbe time for
wrecking tbe train bad arrived. We station- &
d Byrd and Oaks on one side of tbe river 8
nd tbe detective and myself on tbe other. C
Lbontbalf an hour before tbe Atlanta train ci
/as due tbe wreckers were beard coming
own tbe track and Btrnck tbe trestle. h
"Tbe trestle 1b 450 feel long and 50 feet high. &
'bey walked on to tbe trestle and stopped
bout 150 feet from the side we were on and d
rent to work loosening bolts, etc. l<
"That was sufficient warning to as, and we
rooeeded to close In on them. I bad them b
otb handcuffed together in a twinkling. G
'bey bad a crowbar,' two blocks and two it
ocks tbat tbey were using to throw tbe Talis y
utof line. There was two oftb^m. 'John tl
>&lton, a yonng man about 82 years old, and
'om Patterson, a man about 28 yean old, di
)alton Uved on a farm about half a 'mile E
om tbe trestle. He is an unmarried man.
'attersonisa married man.With a family, 8
nd lives about one mile from the treetle,
be detective asked them who tbey were and b
rbat tbey were doing. Patterson replied 8
bat he was working on the flection and was Ji
zing the trestle. ' * ol
"It was not lonrnntil the train came along. ;

Ion was to wreck the train on Yellow river o

rain off the trestle Into tbe river, and would n
Mil all tbat survived tbe wreck with an ax, h
,nd tben rob the express car, mall car and o
tassengerq. /In this way he said he would b
Hat least three or four thousand dollars,
le said tbat he would hide tbe passengers'
patches, jewelry, etc., and sell tbem two or
bree years afterwards. He suggested' that
ifter we had divided the spoils we would fall 0

in awful tblng tbat I went to a relative, by V

ibout Daiton meeting me on tbe trestle. We o
vent therfe together. I got the crowbar at ?
Mr. Davis' farm, where I live. I knew tbe b
officers would be there; Tbe whole program b
ivas agreed upon between tbe detective and p
tjyself. The reason I gave the plot away was s
because I wanted to protect tbe passengers'

GOOD SUGGESTION.
What abont tbe Abbeville County Fair and
itock Show? We respectfully suggest that
be oounty officers take bold of this matter
ma pueD 1110 a snccesBiui issue. we wumu
,lso suggest that tbe merchants at Abbeville i
ifTer some prizes for the best yield of wheat .
n the county on one aore, the best yield of '
>ats on one acre, tbe best yield of corn on one <
,cre. Some such Inducement would likely i
esult In an Increased interest in grain ctu- ,
ure and prove beneficial to tbe entire county.
V good stock show at Abbeville would draw a '
arge crowd and prove to tbe world that the <
sounty has in It today more good bones,
nules, cows, bogs and poultry than ever beore.
Hut still there Is room for improvement <
n the stock and agrlcultual and, garden pro- i
luots In tbe county, and a vaBt Improvement ,
vould certalnlv follow a revival of the an- 1
lual county fairs at tbe county seat. We <
further suegept that the exhibit be made
in tbe square and upon the Btreets of tbe oity
ind not out of the oity In some inconvelnent 1
place. What do the correspondents of the
;ounty papers say about this matter? What
io the incomlDg oounty officers say? What
lo tbe business men of Abbeville say ? What
lo the citizens of Abbeville say? What do
Lbe farmers of the county say ? What do the
ladies of tbe county say ? What do the stock
raisers in the county say ? What do tbe editors
of the county papers say about reorganizing
and reviving the Abbeville Guoaty
4took aDd Fair Association ? J&T.
Would it not be well to organize and^tart
tbe ball rolling this fall ? It would only fce a
beginning but It would be a start In the right
direction. By Septemter, 1901, the county
could get up the best exhibit ever made in
tbe county. This is our opinion hurriedly
expressed. WhatlByouri?
