ITroet the ceatral Star J
Goodman was the scene on last
Monday night, of on of the
bloodiest affrave which this conn
ty has ever witnessed. . Th plain
unvarnished facts of t case show
beyond peradventure, that James
K. uowen, tne muraerer, is a ueuu
in human form a regular Man
cat, who cteves life, but for the
privilege of gloatingly feasting
upon the blood of man.
Mr. Phil. Balford, hi brother
Ed. Balford and Mr. Green, all
citizen of the county,- cam to
town on Monday evening. They
took, perhaps, several drinks, and
doubtless some of them felt tho
effects of their drinking to a lim
ited extent About 9 o'clock in
the night, the party -began to make
preparation to go home, Mr. Ed.
Kaiford drove hi uuggy up in
front of the hotel, Mr. Phil. Bal
ford led his horse up, ready to
mount; Green seemed a little dis
posed to linger and mamiestea
some disposition to be noisy,
but by no means annoy
ing. Ed. Balford got into
bis buggy and he and hi brother
both told Green to get into the
buggy that they might all go
home. Just at this moment Bowen
came down from his room in the
second story of he hotel build
ing, and assuming to ue a magis
trate, ordered several persons pres
ent to arrest the Baiford and
Green, accompanying his order to
arrest with such denunciation of
the Baiford and Green, a, "you
are a damned sot of scoundrels,
liars, etc," Mr. PhiL Baiford said
to Bowen. that none of hi party
had done anything to be arrested
for, and that they were rtarting
home, and that they could not De
arrested unless they had done
somctbin- to justify it. Bowen,
with his pistol in uis nana unaer
his coat,continued his denuncia
tion of the Baiford, until Mr,
Phil. Baiford said to him that he
was acting the fool, and had bet
ter so tonis room and go to bed
and that they would go home. At
this point, Bowen, who seemed to
imatfne that the paciflo conduct
of the tumoral wa inaicauve oi
cowardice, became keenly severe
In bis denunciation. These de
nunciations were repelled by Mr.
Phil. Baiford, denouncing Bowen
as a liar. The words bad not rail-
en from Balford' lip ere Bowen
fired, his first shot taking effect in
tho left breast of Phil. Baiford,
from the effects of which he died
In one hour. Bowen' second
shot took effect in the abdomen of
Ed. Baiford, and was fired Just t s
Ed. Baiford wa jumping lrom the
bueev to rescue his brother.
Bowen fired two additional
shot into tho general crowd of
human beings present, not seem
ing to care who he killed. Hav
ing completed his bloody work,
and while the crowd were stand-
nir in mute astonishment, not
knowing exactly what had been
done, he fled, and on Tuesday
morning boarded the upward
bound train, nt Pickens station
When the train arrived at Good
man, search was made aud Bowen
was discovered and captured by
the law-abiding citizens.
The community was much ex.
cited, and that excitement was'
ureatly augmented by the wholly
unnecessary ucmonstrauons oi
the negroes, in tho interest of
Bowen. This bloody deed has
desolated the hearthstones of two
or three of our worthiest families.
The people we mean tho white
people, are determined that tne
law shall take its course, and
that justice shall be done
according to the facts. They
don't desire, nor will they
willinely resort to violence, but,
it may as well bo said now and
here, that, by the eternal God,
all the powers of loyal leaguelsm,
aided by carpet-bag. deviiism, in
its most hideous form, shall not
prevent the law from taking its
regular and legitimate course in
this case. Bowen has, since his
advent here, been working upon
the negroes, day and night, trying
to win tbcm to At support, ana u
would seem to a great extent has
been successful. Ho went last
Saturday night into the midst ol
several hundred, secretly, and ad
vised them that it was important
that they organize a colored com
pany of militia, tor mutual pro
tectlon, with him for Captain.
(Bowen wa taken to the county
Jail, and was to have had a pre
uminary trial on r nday last. )
