Elliott Grayson, a Negro Desperado, e Fatally Stabbs David Adams, an ~ Inoffensive and Much Respected e Mulatto Shoemaker. Elliott Grayson, an ill-favored black man. with a reputation for meanness and i general devilment that culminated Satur9 day night in the commission of the grav1 est of crimes known toourlaws.cut David f Adams, an inoffensive, hard-working mu1 latto shoemaker to death, in the latter's | little shop, next to Vernon's market, and i is now in jail awaiting trial, i It was about half-past seven o'clock and ; the street was crowded with Saturday pell destrians, white and black. There was ilicnoncflrv in flip nockctS of ? IIIW1C l?l 1VCO T * ? I many of these loungers and buyers, and not a few were feeling the effects of the alcholic stimulant to the extent that they j "wanted to run things their way." The , murderer was one of the most "biggity" [ of the latter class. Frank Pue's restau' rant was crowded with negroes of all shades and color, and among the nunil>er , was Simon Brown, who had his arms full ; of purchases. The crowd was a merry one and laughter and jest were jostling each other in gleeful mood. Suddenly the lowering face of Elliott Grayson appeared, and, addressing Simon Brown, he demanded, with sundry blood-curdling oaths: "Ain't we Grayson's de people, Simon Brown ?" Simon declined to commit himself on so delicate a question, and gathered up his bundles. Grayson advanced on him menacingly, and he wisely retreated by a rear door., Crossing the street he entered Adams's shoe shop. The latter was in the rear room, where there was a fire; talking on a matter of business with William Kendall. Grayson, finding that Brown had escaped, hurried after him and started into Vernon's market. Mr. Vernon stopped him at the door and he went around and entered the shoemaker's shop by the front door, to have it out with Simon Crown. In his usual bullyiug way Grayson began to curse, and Adams requested him to leave; that was his place of business he said, and he didn't want such language and such behavior there. At the same time he took hold of Gray ? V i son s arm ana pusueu mm umnma mc door. William Kendall assisted him, and no violence was used by either man. When they got to the door, Kendall stepped back, for he knew Grayson's desperate character, and heard him exclaim: "If you come out here I'll kill you." Adams replied to this threat that he wanted no trouble and joined Kendall inside the shop. Instantly a cry went up: "Look out, he's got a knife!" and Adams turned to face the door. Grayson, so Kendall says, advanced threateningly, and Adams put out his left hand open, to push the trespasser away. Like a flash Grayson's arm rose and fell and the blade of the knife that he held firmly grasped in the sinewey fingers of his right hand, cut a glancing gash across the back of the shoemaker's hand. He pushed toward his assailant with his right hand, and this time with demon-like fury Grayson slashed out with his knife. It cut through the right sleeve of Adams's coat just below the shoulder, and penetrating the flesh raked to the bone, a zig-zag gash four inches in length that severed the axilary artery and slit up the brachial artery a length of two inches. At least an inch or an inch and a half of the median nerve was cut away, and all the nerves, veins and arteries in the brachial region were several. His arm fell, he reeled, a stream of blood gushed from the wound, and he would have fallen to the floor had not Mr. J. A. Vernon ran to his assistance. Wit), mpp nrwpnpp nf mind Mr. Vernon grasped the ami from which spouted a geyser of blood and called for a cord to bind it up. He made a rude torniquet and checked the flow of blood. Then the wounded man was taken to Dr. B. D. Branson's office, and that surgeon called in Dr. J. B. Black to his assistance. Adams was aniesthesized, and for seven hours the two surgeons, with a corps of assistants, labored heroically to save the wounded man's life. Finally the arteries were ligatured and the horrible gash sewn up. Adams was very weak from loss of blood, and there was very little hope of his survival so great had been the shock, and so dangerous was the wound. - He was removed to Nimmons's barber shop, but Sunday morning they took him to George Kearse's house, where he has been boarding. As the doctors feared secondary hemorrhage set in Sunday night, there was a profuse suffusion of blood, and at 1.30 o'clock Monday morning he died. He was conscious as the end approached, and his aged father, who had been summoned by wire, was present with him. "I never knew him to use an oath or a disrespectful word," said Mr. J. A. Vernon, and he died with a prayer to heaven on his lips. Monday afternoon Dr. Bronson made a post-mortem examination of the body and found that death resulted as above. Magistrate II. A. Ray, acting as coroner, summoned the following jury of inquest: W. W. Lightsey, foreman; E. Dickinson, John Thomas, George L. Quattlebaum, A.! 8. Easterlin, J. W. Stokes. C. M. Johnson, J. W. Sandifer, A. Warren, Clyde O'Neal, Joseph McCormick and V. J. Hartzog. George Wolsey Symonds, who afterwards swore out the warrant for the murderer's : commitment to jail, was selected as clerk of the coroner's court, and after hearing the testimony of Dr. Bronson, two wit, nesses of the tragedy, William Kendall , and Mr. J. A. Vernon, were examined. Satisfied with this evidence a verdict was ' rendered to the effect that 4,David Adams ! came to his death from wounds made by . a knife or other cutting instrument in the hands of Elliott Grayson." As soon as he had finished his murder ous work Saturday night, Grayson took J to his heels and, according to his own story, fled toward Denmark. Late that night he returned to Bamberg, had a con1 sultation with some of his friends and i secluded himself in the wilds of Lemon swamp. As soon as he learned that a 1 crime had been committed, Chief of r Police L. C. Price summoned a posse and 5 started in pursuit of the murderer. He r searched many houses in the negro quarters, but was unable to find his man. ? Deputy SherifF J. Felder Hunter, assisted 2 by a negro detective, located the fugitive and Monday night was prepared to round him up. In the mean time, finding that 1 he was being pursued, Grayson sought to change his hiding place, and coming out of the swamp struck the tram road just ? below town. Mr. M. A. Hoover, and e John Green, a responsible negro farmer, r spied the fleeing man and hailed him. . He saw that he was trapped and surren dered. They brought him to town and turned him over to the Sheriff. So well was the dead man liked and so great was the public horror of the deed, that there was much open indignation expressed. Sheriff Hunter heard of the muttered threats and took extra precautions to keep his charge safely. No overt acts were committed, however, and it is likely that Grayson will receive the legal punishment that the cowardly nature of his crime deserves. The authorities, while they are to be commended for the prompt measures taken to apprehend the murderer, neglected to perform one very important duty. When it was found that Adams was dying, his ante mortem statement '-i i.o,.n i,n,ni t.ib-on hv f 1 mniristr.-ite M1UUUI lltl\V UUli l.uwu wj ? or other authorized person, and this evidence would have done much toward' cementing and binding together the testimony of the eye witnesses to the crime. The little shop where the tragedy occurred has an unfortunate history. About two years ago Henry Zeigler, a negro cook?it was then used as a restaurant? was shot and instantly, killed there by Ed Riley, another negro, who is now a fugitive from justice. At odd times in its history there have been more or less bloody fights within its walls, but no crime, no matter how atrocious, could have excelled, in bloody, tigerish ferocity, the killing of this peaceable shoemaker by Elliott Grayson. The body of the dead man was taken Tuesday morning to Kingville, his former home, for burial. Chain Gang Moves. The chain gang has shifted its camp to Zion Dili on the Rinnaker Bridge road. Excellent work has been done by the gang on the Denmark and Bamberg road. There is considerable additional repairs to be made to this thoroughfare, and, as soon as the water abates, and the road dries up. the gang will return and complete their labors. It is likely, that before they return, the Board of County Commissioners will have held another meeting. It is extremely necessary in odvoripp movement now beintr made for good roads, that when this important highway is completed,- it be done in an np to-date manner The approach to this city has been straightened avoiding the tiresome turnout and detour at Mr. O. B. Free's, and, if the commissioners rise to the occasion, purchase a road roller, ami see to it that this road is scientifically piked and packed, Bamberg county will have one thoroughfare that will stand the heaviest travel, with the minimum amount of traction at all seasons of the year.

Creech*of Barnwell county, had the misfortune to almost lose the use of his only remaining hand, by an accident Friday after noon, at Fairfax, while, attempting to board the Southern Kailway's vestibule train, No. 34. He was ill Fairfax serving papers and intended going home on the Southern's northbound train No. 34. This train is not scheduled to stop at Fairfax, but, as all trains are required by the State law to stop before crossing another railroad's track*, the Southern's trains have to stop at the Florida Central and Peninsular crossing. Mr. Creech took a stand where he thought he could board the train when the engine stopped at the crossing. The train, however, did not come to a full stop, but slowed np very much. Mr. Creech's right hand is useless as a result of a wound received in the war, and consequently when he attempted to boaid the train while in motion he could use only his left hand. He was unable to pull himself up by this and was swung under the train. Fortunately, a gentleman was standing near and pulled him out, but not until he had been badly injured. The train was stopped, and after getting the names of some witnesses the conductor left the wounded man in charge of Dr. W. J. Young. It was found necessary to take off three fingers of the Sheriff's left hand, [ leaving only the thumb and finger. This was the most serious" injury, as his right hand was al ready maimed from a wound received in the Confederate service. Ilis forehead is badly gashed aud lower limbs somewhat bruised.
