charged with the murder of Ollle Kln
ard, a v/blte man, a verdict of guilty
of manslaughter was returned and the
negro "was sentenced to three years in
the penitentiary. ThlH was one of the
most interesting cases called at this]
term of court by reason that the de-1
rendant In this case narrowly escaped
lynching and but for the positive
statement of Anderson's sheriff, Joe
H. M. Ashley, would have been lynch
ed by a mob.
The evidence submitted in this case

with two other men, were cn*'route
to a resort near the city on the day
of the trilling.

ieje^ that Kinard began to belabor the
negro, striking him a number of pow
