Can Ruffians Silence the Press i
An outrage occurred in the most fre
quented portion of the city on ? Tuesday
, evening which demands plain words from
the press and prompt And vigorous ac
,tion on the part of .the custodians of the
rights of the citizen and the public peace.
Mr. John A. Moroso, one of the editors of
The Courier, was quietly passing the?cor
ner of Broad and Meeting streets, when
he was rudely accosted by Mr. H. W.
Hendricks in reference to the publication
of thej-eports of the recent trial of the
latter on certain grave charges in Atlanta
Ga. Mr. Moroso avowed the responsibili
ty for the publications in question,.where*- ]
upon Hendricks dealt him a furious blow |
and then, retreating a*few paces, drew sm3
levelled at him a pistol with the in
solent boast : " PU teach some of yon
men to write about me in the newspa
pers," or words to that effect. Mr. Mor- j
oso, being unarmed, was* of course unable
to resent the cowardly assault, and Hen
dricks was restrained. from further mis
chief by one of his well known boon com
panions, several of whom were with bira
at the tune.
It is certainly somewhat extraordinary,
and not particularly creditable, that a
scene like this should have occurred un
noticad under the very shadow of the
Guardhouse, which is tue headquarters of
the city police. Still, it is possible, con
sidering- all the circumstances and the
suddenness of the attack, tHat the whole
affair may really have escaped the atten
tion of the police-sentry on dutv. And
now it remains to be' seen whether the
peace omeera will do their duty. We
' know that Hendricks hos long been ac
customed to snap his fingers at the ma
. chinery ef public justice in South Caro
lina, so far as his own violent proceedings
were concerned^, We shall' now see ' how
our new Criminal Court will "treat the
hero of this dastardlv, murderous and.un
provoked assault. "VVe say unprovoke \
for the publications, which were the pre
text of the outrage, consisted merely of
the reproduction of the reports given by
. the Atlanta papers of a public trial, ab
solutely without comment.
But whatever the action of the pear??
officers and judicial authorities in this
.case, if Mr. Hendricks, or anybody else,
fancies that the press- of Charleston cai'
be silenced by thc bludgeon or pistol of
any ruffian who may .suddenly grow.jeal
ous' of his reputation, he mikes a very
grave mistake. The Nexos desires t<
wrong nb "man, friend dr toe; 'ami if- sn
consciopsly, jt should be unjust "to arv
one, it is'at all times readv and anxious
to repair the injury; but, whatever happens, j
' it may be set down as a fixed' fact thai
bullying and violence will in all instances
. be found thc worst possible channels i ?
seeking redress or of escaping public and
deserved reprobation.-Charleston News.

. A Harrowing-Scene.
From the New York Sim, June 12.
The steamship Champion, from Charle;
ton, arrived at Pier 29, North River, la:
night, having on board twenty-three .Ki
hvlux prisoners. Among them were gray
Haired men and beardless boys; stron
men and cripples. They were undf-r
guard of United States soldiers, and 0
their way to the Albany Penitentiary t
serve out a term of imprisonment. A
rf them professed to be farmers or farr
workmen, and their sunburned faces an
hardened hands gave proof of it.
The terms ol' imprisonment are : thre
lor ten years, and^lOUO fine; six, eigh
years and $1U0 fine ; . two, lour years an
i-lOO fine ; one.-lour years and $500 fine
..iree, three years ana $11)0 fine; lour; tw
. ears and ijlUU fine : three, a year and ?
null' and $100 fine; ?-.nd one, one year aui
rlO fine.
AU of these men lived iu York County

?rompt ly answered, and,-by niany of th.
.icu, with much intelligence. They sai
. livy hadbeen arrested " for belonging ti
be order." A gray-haired man told'th.
! Mowing story :
When martial law was declared'last 0
rober, no outrages had been coinmittw.
for a year, and none rince, in our comity
t least. B\it-the militar}' authority
.iave been making Tarrests for the nos
?:glit months. The prisoners are takc-L
jefore Judge Bond, in thc United .'State
Circuit Court, and the charges are alikt
in all case.-v They are accused of heine
>r having been, members of-the'Ku-Kinx
and are told that ibis can be proven i.j.
members ot' the band who are witness*:
-r tho prosecution, and advised to pleat
guilty lo mitigate their punishment.
. Knowing how useless resistance js, tin
poor wretches plead guilty to avoid :
severer penalty. Thus, twenty-two c
:h?se men are suffering the penalties c
convicts through fear, and not from any
.yidence-of their crime. One man of fifty
years approached the reporter and saic
vehemently :
"I did not plead guilty. I am nu.
guilty, and 1 would not make such a con
lessio'n for tho world. . Thar tried me on
two charges, but no e violence was adduced
to cpnvict me. Yet it was meant that I
should be punished, and they gave me
: wo years. Two years for being an Amer
ican citizen unfortunate enough to live in
South Carolina' I am not, nor ever was,
a I?i-Klux, whatever that may be, and
have always been a peaceable, law-abid
ing citizen. I'go to prison an innocent
man, but the hardest criminal never left
his prison with a worse heart than I shall
leave mine. If my life is spared this in
dignity shall be avenged."
The men complained bitterly flt being
sent North'for coM'nem--iit. They'thought
it bad enough to bq s ..-amarily arrested
by soldiers, illegady t?f X and unjustly
convicted, without being taken so far from
home, and where their friends cannot visit
They are to remain in prison until the
fines are paid. Some of them ar$ without
money,'br friends that have means, and
they see uo limit to their incarceration. ?
. The reporter said'to one*:
" How w?l von pay your fine ?"
" By death, was the answer.
fie was a cripple, pale and emaciated,1
and evidently rnpidlv falling away through
the ravages of a 'hidden disease. Death
no doubt will pay his fine, arid cheat the
prison of a'tenant.
At seven o'clock the meit were put into
a street, car and taken to the Grand Cen
tral depot, and they embarked for Albanv
on the eignt\o'clock train.
